  1. Looks a bit plain to me. Take away its vegetable armoury and it's just a white duck with a monobrow. But, I guess Farfetch'd was always made distinct by its leek, so Sirfetch'd distinction is in its vegetables as well.
  2. A Pokemon third person shooter in the style of Plants vs Zombies is announced.

    What reaction do you have?

  3. Last night I finished the story of this, and I liked the interactions between the teams [Aqua, Ven, Terra/Axel, Roxas, Xion] and some of the 'death' scenes of the Organisation members. The bosses themselves weren't too bad, either. But the final boss... well, first armoured phase... That was terrible. Only time I've ever quit out of a fight to eat a meal to boost stats. And even then I don't think I'd have managed to one-shot the entire fight had it not been for some lucky rage forms. Overall, I still stand by what I said in my latest What I'm Waiting For post, in that for every good thing the game does, there's something bad attached to it.
  4. With Jedi Outcast being ported to Switch, what does that mean for other old Star Wars games?

    Are we going to see the old Battlefronts? Actually, no. I'll say what I mentioned in the Motobug chat again. Elite Squadron remade into what it was originally meant to be. If Switch can't get EA's Battlefront, then it should at least get some sort of new Battlefront.

    Maybe next year.

      Well Jedi Outcast got a port due to that the source code was already available (as well as that I think it runs on the Quake 3 engine so even if it got lost, it could be remade).

      As for the other Star Wars games, well... I can see its sequel Jedi Academy getting a release since it used the same engine. Oh wait... it is coming out next year. Others are a bit tricky. Apart from the older games that can be emulated, most ran on custom engines and some may need a lot of work to port onto a console or the PC. Republic Commando has a chance since its Unreal but the others look doubtful at best.

      I don't think the Switch is going to get any of the Battlefront games and doubtful for future Nintendo consoles (or PS5 onwards if there's no PS2 emulation). Maybe if EA's contract runs out, you might see the older ones but for Disney they'll consider it too much effort required, the PC got an update but there's a difference between making a patch and porting a game. Most of the Star Wars games since Disney took over were the easier route (emulation, backwards compatibility, patches for PC versions, released source code). If there were going to be any more Star Wars games on the Switch then its just the Super Star Wars Trilogy whether SNES Online or the 2015 emulated package.

      I would personally like to see that Rogue Squadron Trilogy that Factor 5 was working on that was basically a remake of Rogue Squadron (that has its issues today with a dodgy PC port and emulation only just got that working after so many years) and a port of the two Gamecube games. Dream game is of course Sega's Star Wars Trilogy but I know that has a snowballs chance of ever getting a home release.

      I could see any game that released on Gamecube as being fair game for a port, which does discount Battlefront. It does include the 2003 Clone Wars game and Bounty Hunter, which I'd be down with.

      Even if I already own them.

  5. Can I just say how much I hate Ribombee and its annoyingly broken Bug Buzz move? Of course, it probably wouldn't be as bad if I wasn't training six Eevee, but they're more than five levels above what I'm facing and get wiped out in two hits of that move.

    Oh, yeah. Direct in less than four hours. SNESwitch, Switch64, and Switchcube become services available, all under one banner and chock full of Mario games to launch them off. Anything that gives me portable Doube Dash I'd support, really.

  6. That new Plants vs Zombies game just got shadow dropped. Not even a trailer beforehand, and suddenly we can buy the full game in a Founder's Edition that costs ten less than the full price, and get exclusive items for playing the weekly dropped content which builds up to the full game, that officially releases on 18/October.

  7. So the ninja training school got turned into a playhouse with a ninja theme. Lovely.
  8. But why is the wrecking ball pink?
  9. If that's the case, I'm surprised they didn't just put a code in a box to go full-on cheap.
  10. My concept for Mii Resort Paradise has been put into words, with a general overview of just what would go into it. I could have gone into detail, but it was already two-and-a-half Word pages long. Anything more than that and I'd have wanted to split it into two or even three parts (as trust me, I have a lot I could talk about with it).

  11. Seems like I can enjoy some Spyro-themed goodness when I jump on tomorrow, then. And even though Spyro is small, speed makes sense in a way, since he has a charge attack. I had hoped for acceleration, but I can live with it.
  12. I've had time when the server's kicked me from a lobby, then refused to get me into another before. I always need to quit out of online, then go back in, and sometimes it just doesn't feel like putting me back into one. That's usually why I try to avoid the online at all costs.
  13. If I'm playing casually, I probably wouldn't even need all 14k, anyway.
  14. So I don't even have to grind for a legendary skin for the main GP character I probably won't use, anyway? I just have to finish bronze? Well, I think that's a kart at the beginning of gold, so I don't think I'm fully out of the grind yet. I won't be spending as much time on this one, either way.
  15. Usually, the cup that it want you to do for the daily challenges ties into the track that some of the other challenges also use, so by doing just one cup, you can possibly get up to five challenges done just by doing the cup. Run through the quick challenges, and its an easy 1000 a day.
  16. This is looking to be one of the best ones yet. I hope it does well so they can get the winter Olympic licence back, as my bias dictates that winter sports are better than regular ones, though I have to admit to liking the look of those Dream events. And the skateboarding (which I hope has better controls than Go Vacation).
  17. There's a lot coming to Battlefront II in the coming months, but who cares about all that except for INSTANT ACTION RETURNING! Nah, I'm excited for the changes and additions. Capital Supremacy will be a lot better to play now with the command post spawning and changes to the cruiser phase, and Felucia next month and the Rise of Skywalker content in December is going to be great.

  18. That was just for the daily challenge, though I have attempted others in the past. Interesting to know that I won't need to beat the CNK tracks to unlock stuff, as I find most of those hell.
  19. First try, though to be fair it is on easy, and to be fair it is Inferno Island. But even of easy Relic Races are tough. I have been doing some time trials, though, and most of those I've been beating first time as well.
  20. A review by The Unusual Suspect for CTR. As much as everyone else has already reviewe and mentioned nearly everything he has here, there's still some good entertainment here.

  21. Got the hoverkart as well now, having been just a thousand off from getting it. A few online races was enough to sort that out. Just. After buying it, I'm on a grand total of 3 coins. I didn't think I'd be able to get any races in though, as the first two times the lobby was disbanded as the leader left, and I felt it would continue to happen every time. Thankfully it didn't, and thankfully I don't have to be touching the online again. At least until the next GP.
  22. Count me as another saving for the Spyro stuff. I've got to get that hoverkart - which I'm very nearly able to buy - and then I can just save for the rest of that time [unless something I really want shows up, but that's not likely].
  23. I don't think people'd care as much if his losses were actually written well. When was the last time he lost in the league from his own mistakes and not a cop-out?
  24. I'm a seventh of the way through after just two hours, though to be fair, I did have a 30% boost right away for this one and was actively engaging in the challenges - already getting a few of the themed ones out of the way.
