  1. Kingdom Hearts 1.5 and 2.5 on Xbox One! Absolute yes!

      Hopefully the fact these are coming to Xbox One is also a sign they're coming to the Switch. Plenty of time to announce that fact. Possibly even in the next Nintendo Direct.

  2. Starting my Star Wars rewatch in preparation for Episode IX tonight! :D

      I'll be doing similar in December, I through to VIII, not including Rogue One so as to keep it Skywalker Saga only. However, I am going to do a reading of the sequel trilogy novelisations, then move onto Resistance Reborn after both are finished.

  3. In case it was missed, the Motobug staff decided on what this year's special Halloween movie will be.

    Join us on Halloween night for Scooby Doo on Zombie Island, and several more halloween specials!

      I know I dropped off from Sam and Max after the first week, but I'm always up for a special event. Should be a good showing and a good time.

  4. Just download,tried,and deleted Mario kart tour in about an hour.

    The controls are ok. The levels are just a mobile version of past courses. The graphcis take a huge dip and frame rate can be slow. 

    Yeah I'll stick to the handheld and console games.

      @Tails spin Oh, I don't think you need to worry about that. Porting Mario Kart 8 was a pretty obvious thing to do, as it'd give a new one as close to launch as possible while the devs behind it developed something new. Same for Donkey Kong [even if we haven't seen anything from Retro], despite the fact it came more than a year from launch.

      I'm still expecting a Mario Kart 10 [counting 9 as 8 Deluxe] sometime next year. Being released near to E3 will allow it some massive exposure if featured within one of the tournaments Nintendo hold.

  5. Mario Kart Tour is terrible. At least in the controls. Turning can sometimes use items, it seems random with how much you actually affect the turning curve, and aerial controls barely seem to respond.

    In better news, Star Wars Battlefront 2017's new Instant Action mode is a blast to play in, with it feeling very close to the 2005 game's conquest. The AI are possibly even better than that game, even if they can't use vehicles. I'll still jump into the online modes, despite now having a pretty good reason not to, as I still find them fun.

    1. DarkRula

      I was never expecting it to be on par with the console games, but I never expected the controls to be this bad. Really, if you've played any other Mario Kart or have easy acces to one, avoid Tour. Unless you're that curious about it.

      I might be overblowing the controls a bit, but I've tried auto drift, manual drift, and even gyro controls. None of those control sets feel at all great to use.

      And yeah, EA do make some great games, but it always gets hidden behind talk of microtransactions and sports.

  6. I’ve been thinking lately about this idea I have for a new Pokemon game that’s sort of in the same vein as Sonic Mania.

    It’s a 2D game (probably Gen V graphics) in which you can explore both Kanto and Johto, as well as a brand new third region to the north of them both. It takes place a number of years after Gens I and II, so a lot in Kanto and Johto has changed.

    1. DarkRula

      DarkRula

      Both regions could definitely do with that. It was something I wanted the Let's Go games to have done instead of pretty much an exact replica modelled in 3D like what we got.

      A Kanto that has seen a decent redesign to bring it up to modern standards and that removes the gatekeeping that plagues the region I'd be down with. Slightly expanded towns with some more intricate path/road designs, maybe an additional town or route that offers something new. Doesn't need to go overboard with it, just enough that says this is fresh yet familiar.

  8. 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.

    1. DarkRula

      DarkRula

      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.

  21. Urgh. I'm having a very hard time not getting myself hyped for Sword and Shield. Everything we've seen of the games so far looks great, but it's everything that we haven't seen so far that has me worried. The only thing that I can say with confidence that disappoint is the region itself, Galar looks so fresh and fun. It's way more interesting than the monotony of the tropics in Alola.

    The story could still be crap, the characters could still be annoying (Lily is legit the worst), the Rotomdex could be even more intrusive than before, the progression might be excessively linear and hand-holdy again, there could be hardly any new mons etc etc. For everything that I like about these games so far, none of my major issues with recent instalments have actually been addressed.

    1. DarkRula

      DarkRula

      While I can't say anything about the story itself, the character interaction is already looking an improvement over SunMoon, I think the Rotom-Phone will be downplayed compared to the Rotomdex [especially since it won't always be visible to you trying to get your attention], and looking at the map again and comparing with the new bits of info we got, I don't think it will be as linear or hand-holdy as some are expecting.

      As already noted, the map doesn't reveal everything, so there could be something of value within that starting area not yet known. If that forest doesn't play a part in the start of the game, I have a feeling we might be returning to it later in the game.

  22. MS conferences are always pretty interesting for me - I never care for the vast majority of the games they show, but I'm still entertained by them anyhow. 

    1. DarkRula

      DarkRula

      I'm pretty much the same. I guess I just look at these things as pure entertainment rather than news showcases. Seen like that the only thing it can do is bore you, and Microsoft certainly didn't do that.

      @KHCast I was talking about the immaturity of the attackers on saying that, not that that was the extent of the attack. I should probably have line-broke the two parts, so it didn't all merge together. It was never my intention to sound like I was downplaying the violence.

      @KHCast Yes, and they recovered quickly. The article has a quote from one of them saying that the attack hasn't affected their feelings of being open about their sexuality. A lot worse could have happened, especially considering the immaturity on display by the attackers.

      From that description, they sound real immature. Talking sexual positions and throwing coins at them as though they were at a nightclub? It's a good thing nothing more serious happened, and at least the couple hasn't been affected too badly. It's completely horrible to have to experience that.
