  1. Jeff Lynne's ELO! Jeff Lynne's ELO!
    In just a few hours, I'll be watching live from Arena Birmingham.
    It's definitely going to be a good time.

  2. A new Star Wars game with a system similar to the Flowmotion mechanics of Kingdom Hearts 3D that allows a greater interaction with the levels. Combat similar to The Force Unleashed where 'saber and Force powers could be combined, but improved upon to allow movement and attacks to be able to be combo off each other and not feel stilted. A story that allows such mechanics to thrive instead of holding them back.

    I very much doubt that Jedi: Fallen Order will do that, or if it does will do it to a lesser extent.

      Jedi: Fallen Order is probably gonna play like The Force Unleashed, i guess with co-op and some multiplayer elements because EA.

    2. DarkRula


      I'm expecting a poor attempt at the Force Unleashed style. Although anything's better than the Jedi of the EA Battlefront games.

  3. Currently waiting for Forza Horizon 4 to download so I can finally get to exploring Horizon Britain in a Mini Cooper.

  4. I've spent a good amount of the afternoon fixing up the labels on all my blog posts. I've been pretty unconcerned about them for the most part and just threw a load of words in there sometimes - even if they had little to do with the subject [like putting Splatoon into the labels about the ARMS Global Testpunch just because Splatoon had something similar]. The largest offender of such was my series on Power Rangers, where I featured every colour Ranger of the seasons featured, plus the name of the seasons.

    The labels are now all fixed up, applying a similar structure to the archive on my main site - with primary, secondary, and tertiary tags only. Doing that has allowed me to replace the standard Blog Archive gadget with a much more presentable Labels gadget - that also mirrors the archive on the main site. I've also finally applied an actual theme so the design wasn't looking like the bog-standard Blogger format.

    DarkRula Media Blog is now more presentable and I'm in overdrive with the content I put on it. I'd recommend the Future of Mario Kart series for anyone wanting to take a look. Ideas generation is what I do best, and with that series finished, I'm moving to Animal Crossing starting next month.

  5. Saw this comment chain on an extended Rowdy Rumble theme Youtube video -

    -King Dedede: "Ah need a monstah to clobber dat dere Kirbeh and his little keyboy friend!"
    -That's what we do best at NME.
    -You better get it with a money back guarantee!
    -Information: Play a badass trumpet solo

    And now I'm imagining a Kirby Right Back at Ya! world in Kingdom Hearts 3.

  6. The Super Mario and Legend of Zelda jazz covers are now on Motobug if you want to listen in.


    Direct is in three hours now. Who's excited?

  7. Some Super Mario jazz covers now playing, followed by Legend of Zelda jazz covers.


    After this, I think I'll swap it over to Motobug - where the real event will get started.

  8. Everything Wrong With Super Smash Bros. Brawl by Charriii5 is coming up, along with EWW Super Mario Odyssey. Then it's an hours break with some Mario and Zelda jazz covers.



  9. From Mario Kart 64 to Mario Kart Double Dash as WiiLikeToPlay has some fun in four-player.


  10. I've got a Nintendo Direct pre-stream full of Nintendo-related videos running on my Cytube if you're interested in joining.

    Decided against hijacking Motobug as it just doesn't seem right to. I'll be on there later, though.

  11. I'll either use my own Cytube or hijack Motobug, but if you've heard of the Youtubers WiiLikeToPlay, I'll be running two of their Mario Kart playthroughs on a stream in 40 minutes as a run-up to the Direct, then continue that going with various Nintendo related videos right up to 23:00 BST.


    I... I don't really know what to say...

    1. Polkadi~♪


      gah, what the fuck

      Since when did Dankey Kang become Sonic the Hedgekong

    4. Fear-Metallix


      He's faster, faster, and faster, too

      I found it randomly while trying to find some more fake Smash leaks.
      It was just too good of an opportunity to share.

  13. That Forza Horizon 4 demo is some good stuff - even if I had to play it on the lowest of settings on my PC.
    I... don't think I've mentioned here that my Xbox turns into a heating unit after five minutes of use so I'm replacing it with the Forza One X bundle.
    But yeah, Forza Horizon 4 was always going to be bought, always going to be played a long time, but this demo has cemented that feeling. There's a lot of content here, and a lot of detail to the world that is ripe for exploration.

    1. Cobalt_Bolt


      My PC meets the recommended hardware requirements so I should be able to enjoy it on Ultra settings. Hopefully the game uses the cores evenly unlike the PC version of Horizon 3 because it was not properly optimized on release. At least it was patched to make it more tolerable but it gave me a headache figuratively and literally during that gap.

    2. Strickerx5


      Thanks for the heads up. Just finished a session in it and man... I'm sold. Runs like a dream. It's so smooth and looks gorgeous as well. It also retained everything I loved from the third straight down to the music selection.

      Man, I'm so glad Microsoft is different from the other two and utilizes the PC market place. This kind of performance just isn't possible elsewhere currently.

  14. Caddicarus has his Mega Man Part 2 video up. I suggest - if at all possible - that Motobug could have both parts back to back before the Direct tomorrow? Say... two hours before, perhaps?

  15. The Nintendo Direct has been announced and Online is confirmed to show.
    I'm putting a bet in that Splatoon 2 content is showing with the confirmation of the Splatoon themed stuff for Animal Crossing Pocket Camp. Then, the Tortimer Island Smash stage shows the villager fighting against the Inkling. With the Inkling defeated, the villager heads for the building, and after a boat ride appears at a dock that doesn't look like any seen in Animal Crossing. But it is confirmed to be the new game when the villager is greeted by a load of villagers in celebration of his Smash victory with the title of the new game appearing on screen. More details to arrive soon.

  16. After listening to the Big sound clips from an earlier status of mine, the recommendations held the Charmy sound clips. Not sure whether I ever heard this one during gameplay, but...


  17. Nintendo Direct reveals a load of new stuff, then the one more thing happens.

    "And now we have an announcement about Nintendo Switch Online. Buy it."
    *Direct ends*

  18. [VIDEO - Big Voice Clips - Sonic Heroes]

    Heaven or Hell. You decide.

  19. Reliving some Disney TV memories with the Suite Life of Zack and Cody.
    It's the one I think of most when I think classic Disney. Didn't realise Recess was Disney - or maybe forgot - but since it's also available on DisneyLife I may as well give that a watch as well.

  20. Power Morphicon reveals the cast and a new trailer, and they both look fine. I've got high hopes for the season from what's been shown.
    I can't say much about Ninja Steel - having only seen a few episodes - but I'm pretty sure Beast Morphers will be beating it, either way.

    1. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      I don't think there's been enough seen to really judge one way or the other (not that it would be hard to top Ninja Steel), but I like the looks of the new rangers, even though red looks a LOT like Scott from RPM.

    2. DarkRula


      That's exactly what I thought when I first saw the picture. I also thought Yellow looked a bit like Tori from Ninja Storm.

  21. Kinda weird seeing Hong Kong Phooey on Wacky Races when he doesn't seem to have been relevant for ten years or more.

    1. Ernest-Panda


      Honest question: how the hell did Hong Kong Phooey even gain pop culture status to begin with when his show lasted for roughly three and a half months?

    2. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      @Ernest-Panda It was made during the time when karate and kung fu was popular so it was the right product at the right time. The song Kung Fu Fighting became popular culture. Bruce Lee was and still is a massive name back then. Probably why so few were made because it was on reruns and the animation industry at the time, popular enough to make more episodes but probably didn't have the cash or the ideas for more. It was also one of the better Hanna-Barbara cartoons of the era.

    3. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      ...Wait WAT

      I'd never thought I'd hear the name Hong Kong Phooey ever again

    4. DarkRula


      The name of the episode was also a reference to that, being Hong Kong Screwy.
      Penry Pooch also shows up.

  22. An advert on Boomerang just said Teens Titans Go would be on all summer on Cartoon Network.

    So... No change, then.

    1. Strickerx5


      Eh tbf, at least from what I’ve seen, they’ve gotten a hell of a lot better with that.

    2. Ernest-Panda


      It’s enough to make you beg for school.

  23. Got the Encore DLC for free thanks to having enough gold points on My Nintendo.

  24. I already had a love of Forza Horizon 4, but that stream just made it stronger. And there's even more to see as there's another three steams coming showing off the world in the different seasons. Just please let there be a playable demo for this one confirmed to be coming soon [I expect it will be announced on the last one at the end of the month].

  25. Playing Double Dash and these blue shells are insane. One was coming up to Wario and DK, and just as it hits I manage to pass them. Few seconds later - kaboom! Another blue has come to make sure Wario and DK get past me.
    Still won, though.
