    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    Costumes? Absolutely not, seeing as how the datamine came from WoL slots. Echoes? Possible, but not likely.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    Some new datamined news has surfaced. 16 DLC spots (this is including Pirahna Plant and Joker's) were found, suggesting we may be getting at least three season passes. Or at least, Nintendo leaving that amount of spaces just in case.
  3. KH1 is fine, but it doesn't feel nearly as engaging, blood-pumping or speedy as KH2 is. The main issue with the first game is how sluggish it feels. Not as much pizazz either.
  4. One year ago, Smash Ultimate was officially revealed to the world.

  5. Heh, so get this. Capcom "might consider bringing DMC5 to the Switch", but as usual there's a catch.

    And believe it or not, this one makes even less sense than the others. Dragon's Dogma has to sell well.

    Good grief. As if the overpriced ports of everything else they've laid out as a "test" hasn't been enough.

      The least they could do is maybe "test"with y'know, a port collection of the 1-4? Something actually connected to the actual series?

      B-But....I've never played Dragon's Dog Mother and don't have any interest in it. I have bought the Devil May Cry Collection and 4 for both PS3 and PS4, though. I would get 5, but I can't afford it it the moment. ;_;

    4. Bobnik

      I kinda doubt that it'd be a port you'd want anyway.

      Remember that Resident Evil 7 - the game that's on the same graphical engine as DMCV (aka RE engine) - got a port in Japan, but it was a Cloud edition, meaning it'd need to be always online to stream the game.

      So unless the engine is very well optimized, I don't really see the proper port happening.

    5. Nix

      Nix

      Just a reminder that all of these "tests" are bullshit and don't actually determine anything.

  6. Despite what short-sighted greedy mobile companies may say, Nintendo are all for the better in taking the long-term approach. Actually working towards consumer satisfaction and not relying on essentially
    "gambling" to pay the bills. Especially with how that's getting more companies into trouble these days.

      It's kind of funny seeing Nintendo as the morally upright ones who believe in properly building a business and thinking long term instead of just buying a Powerball ticket and hoping for the best as they had a rather seedy reputation of blackmailing developers to not make games for the Genesis/Mega Drive that I was exposed to back in the 90s.

      So...what happens when they drop the online functionality and the store is unable to be accessed? Does the thing essentially become a brick, or will you only be able to play the games you’ve purchased? And what if you’ve already got a game physically? Do you need to buy it again digitally? Also this, hopefully, raises the expectation for Microsoft and game devs to ensure stable servers since the system essentially relies on that as well as stable connections from the user 

    4. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      I mean I still think it's a pretty crap deal long term but you have to remember this isn't actually a brand new console, nor is it replacing the existing one - as long as the normal disc drive version is still in production nobody loses out on this.

    5. Wraith

      If you have no intent on buying this I don't see why one'd complain about it existing

      So, what’s the gimmick of this console?

    7. Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      @Ryannumber1gamer It's a disc-less and digital-only Xbox One S.

      And people aren't fond of the idea,  given how it represents some dumb digital-only era that companies have been trying to force onto consumers. 

  7. Oh boy,  the discless Xbox One fiasco is getting slaughtered. Not that I can blame anyone. 

    1. Ferno

      People don't like it? Tbh I thought we were past the days of people trashing the PSP Go, if anything I thought people were moving away from physical media now.

    2. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      Them leaving the physical side of games could be a further signs pointing towards becoming third party with Nintendo, although it's concerning that they'd still have the Xbone at all.

      Combine that with this source that denies that rumor...

    3. Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      @Ferno Thankfully not the case. 

      Physical market is still strongly supported as it aught to be. 

    4. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      @Ferno It varies from region to region, but the tl;dr is that you tend to need good internet infrastructure for this kind of thing to take off. Even in first world countries that's not always true, and it's kind of a dick move to punish for not living in a place that doesn't have good internet.

      Disc media on the other hand - or well, external media in general - works for everyone. It makes absolutely no sense to exclude it completely just to cut costs, because the net result is having much less people able to buy and use it and you end up looking like an elitist prick in the process.

      I mean if this was Microsoft’s initial Xbox One I’d agree this is fucking stupid, but idk is this supposed to have any advantages outside the other ones?  Aside from price anyway 

    7. Wraith

      Wraith

      The only change is that it will cost less because no disc drive

    8. Ferno

      Ferno

      I mean I'm totally team-physical but these days game publishers will do stuff like giving you only half the game on disc/ cartridge or even give you cardboard fake discs with download codes on them, etc. so its one of those "what's the point?" things after awhile

    Ehhhhh. No. That looks worse than v the actual leaked movie render. It's way more off-putting and humanoid structured for starters. The chest doesn't help matters either.

    What a precious smile. @JosepHenry

  10. Meh,  for all its faults,  that design isn't the worst. Doesn't excuse it, but it's not as bad as some expected it to be. 

    That said, while I'm not angry with the design,  I am still disappointed. 

    1. Polkadi~♪

      Polkadi~♪

      Same, I'm feeling really blue (absolutely no pun intended) that this bland design is what they went with.

      I would have taken a horrible alien thing over this, even. It's just so boring and bland.

      It's one of those things where i never bothered with the fact that the character was naked until now.

  12. Why does the soundtrack in KH3 feel so lacking? Guess that might have something to do with Shimomura apparently not really being as full an attendant to it as she used to be with Kingdom Hearts beforehand. 

    1. pppp

      pppp

      What are you talking about? Shimomura did like 90% of the soundtrack as she always does, with Ishimoto and Sekito only doing a couple tracks like in previous games. The soundtrack in KH3 is full of awesome tracks, the Tangled world, The Frozen World, The amazing boss themes, the best version of Dearly Beloved and the orchestral version of Face My Fears.

    2. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      Who knows if she even had the option? Maybe if Nintendo hadn't kept dragging her into their products she'd be more available. Unless she outright chose to work with them over doing KH work.

    3. pppp

      pppp

      So now we're also hating on the soundtrack? Holy Fuck, you people at this point just want to complain, regardless of whether or not it's justified.

      When did I even say I hate the soundtrack? I just said I found it lacking. Chill out man. 

    5. SupahBerry

      And I haven't even played the game yet. How can I judge a games soundtrack if I haven't even listened to it???

    6. pppp

      pppp

      @Jovahexeon Fitzroy You misrepresented it though, by saying Shimomura didn't work on it as much.

    7. Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      I mean,  she didn't. It's been noted that she wasn't as on board with the soundtrack compared to previous ventures. 

      Especially since there was more help from two other composers. Which isn't even surprising per say.

      So no.  No misrepresentation and certainly no reason to blow a fuse at me. 

    8. pppp

      pppp

      @Jovahexeon Fitzroy That's not what the music credits say, but whatever.

    9. Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      Oh,  so you hadn't heard the news then during the game's development.  

      But yeah, there were at least two other composers on board alongside Shimomura.

      She didn't exactly helm the entire soundtrack and contributed less than before. How much less is still in question, but many have been pointing it out. 

    10. pppp

      pppp

      Whatever I don't want to argue any further, I love the KH3 soundtrack, so I won't talk to you about it anymore if you don't mind, I don't want this to turn into an argument for later tonight.

      Wasn't just the Switch stuff I was talking about.

      Still though, Switch owners are kinda forced to. Since well, they don't buy them and then Capcom gets to say "Oh well, guess Nintendo fans really don't want our games on their systems". And to be fair Tornado, what if they haven't gotten to play those games yet?

      People normally don't like to port-beg anyway, but this is what a lot of greedy companies put them through.

      Don't even get me started on how Ultra Street Fighter 2 was officially stated by Capcom themselves to be a test for Nintendo support. Ugh.

      I get exactly what you're saying.  Back in 2010, Nintendo and Camelot Software released the third installment of Golden Sun, Dark Dawn, for the Nintendo DS.  It didn't do too hot, probably do to, you know, releasing at the end of the DS's lifecycle, in addition to no backtracking.  Camelot has said that because of this they feel no one wants another Golden Sun game and that they'd have to see demand (http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2012/06/let_camelot_know_if_you_want_another_golden_sun).  And it's not like there isn't proof of fan demand, either:

      https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/operation-sunrise

      https://www.change.org/p/camelot-video-game-developer-operation-sunrise-show-your-support-for-golden-sun-4

      There are even Twitter and Facebook groups for it, but because of one less successful entry the series has gone dormant.

      But they do. They do every single time. They even did it on the Wii for barebones ports of Gamecube games that the Wii could already play. Nintendo does the same thing with their properties, and people buy those rereleases in droves despite their outrageous costs. Capcom did it with Ultra II, and it was one of the best selling releases on the platform in the first year. It sold so well that Capcom sung praises for how well it contributed to their bottom line on two separate occasions.

       

       

      Capcom didn't imagine this market of people foolish enough to drop $30 on 15 year old Gamecube games that are cheaper (and better) elsewhere. I have no sympathy for any of these people complaining about how companies keep doing this.

      If they haven't gotten a chance to play Resident Evil 4? A game released on 10 different systems before the Switch version was announced? Then I suppose they can go buy one of the 80 million Wiis languishing in pawn shops around the world for fifteen bucks, and pick up one of the tons of copies of that port of that game or the Gamecube original for probably five dollars. Gamecube controllers aren't even in horrifically short supply like they were when the Wii port came out, so they might even learn that you can play the Wii version with the Gamecube controller faster than most people at the time did. Then they can do the same thing with REmake and Zero, since those were also both Wii and Gamecube dual releases before those two were also ported to every device that could even sort of play videogames.

       

      Or, since all three games are at least fifteen fucking years old, they can buy it and play it on pretty much any computer made in the past five years and get all three for $30 cheaper on Steam.

    5. Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      I think you're neglecting the glaring differences in situations here @Tornado. Again, as stated before, this isn't just about the Resident Evil on Switch bollocks. Secondly, back then, those games were still available physically. And Capcom weren't coming off nearly as stingy.

      Defend them all you want, but it's undeniable that with the Switch Capcom has put Nintendo fans through the money wringer. If Ultra Street Fighter 2 didn't sell well, they were gonna pull out on Switch support. It's the case with a lot of 3rd party companies when it comes to Switch support and it's really getting annoying.

      Do as you will, but don't raise a stinkwhen people point out these blatant flaws with Capcom and tell them to go "play on PC" especially when the competition don't see as much bad treatment.

      Mind you, the problems I'm referring to with other releases are just as stupid on Sony and Microsoft's platforms. Regarding stuff outside Resident Evil. Though I doubt you care about that.

      And those very same games from those very same releases still are today. It's almost as if they don't incinerate themselves as soon as a successor console comes out. It's almost as if games from three console generations ago don't automatically deserve a physical release when they can be sold in a way with much less risk.

      Unlike what they did on the Wii U.

      Unlike what they did on the Wii.

      Unlike what they did on the Gamecube.

      Unlike what they did on the N64.

       

      Then those 3rd parties wouldn't face so much financial risk when they already have to put in extra time and money to do a version to work around whatever idiosyncratic issues Nintendo has forced the 3rd parties to deal with in their console design.

      Nearly a decade before they released Ultra Streets, they released straight ports of 7 year old Gamecube games to a system that could play Gamecube games. A few years before that they released a straight port of a PSX game on the Gamecube. People bought all these things. I even imagine the Zero may have sold better as a Wii game than as a Gamecube one.

      Are you reading the shit you're typing? They were obligated to buy a mildly enhanced port of a ten year old port of a 25 year old game at 300% markup, for fear that Capcom would never release an original title on a very successful platform that (statistically speaking) they probably won't buy anyway because Nintendo didn't publish it. What's the excuse when Nintendo does the same thing and they buy those en masse?

      I'm not surprised by that. I also don't find it crazy that Nintendo-specific gamers are insular to the point where they hurt themselves and what games they can play; in favor of whining that other systems get games and they deserve them too despite deliberately secluding themselves to hardware that for over two decades has been either the odd man out in design or a complete sales disaster (or both). It's certainly pretty crazy that they then proceed to loudly bitch about it every fucking console generation, though.

      I mean, I assume you'll find it stupid to complain about. To clarify, the current stigma against them that I was referring to is their treatment of the western release of the Ace Attorney trilogy. Non-physical and released practically a month later than in Japan. Sure, it's region-free, but if say western folk buy it early or want to have a physical release, than those are just more Japanese sales that Capcom will use to justify not localizing the games eve more than they already have been.

      Yeah, yeah, I know you're gonna say it's something stupid and we should just be grateful for this or that. If that's the case, then it's best we just agree to disagree.

      So, basically they were stingy back then. They're just even more stingy that regard now, as I stated. And again, by your own admission there, it doesn't sound like a problem exclusive to Nintendo with Capcom's bad habit of re-releases.

      Not to sound biased, since I'm not really in on the whole console war thing, but I think the answer first and foremost is because for one thing, they aren't just rehashing the same game over and over for absurd prices. There's not nearly as much call for outrage since Nintendo actually release them physically these days. Oh, and Nintendo also still get called out when they do pull this crap.

      I never stated otherwise, after all.

      I'm sorry, but you literally just got done claiming that Nintendo fans will eat up anything from Capcom even in this manner. Even stated how they've been doing this for generations and that's supposedly how Capcom knows this would work. But now you're claiming that companies like Capcom "have to" do this because Nintendo fans supposedly didn't buy their software that easily? IN fact, the very notion that Capcom need to "test" stuff should actually be blown apart by your own admission. Which means,

      Or y'know, it could just be the common case of only being to afford one console per generation, or not being capable of buying another one for financial reasons. And it's not like we've got to chalk up people requesting games on the systems as "port-begging" for reasons like that.

      in favor of whining that other systems get games and they deserve them too despite deliberately secluding themselves to hardware that for over two decades has been either the odd man out in design or a complete sales disaster (or both). It's certainly pretty crazy that they then proceed to loudly bitch about it every fucking console generation, though.

      So, essentially you're complaining about any console-exclusive nut in nutshell. Not a stigma exclusive to Nintendo or any of the big three, matter of fact.

      Eh, whatever. I recognize that's more of a case to case basis and don't assume that means gamers as whole deserve to get treated badly on any platform.

      I mean, honestly, you may as well be throwing shade at Sony players allegedly "port-begging" for the latest Pokemon game if it's port-begging that annoys you.
