    I think this the first time I will ever actively advocate for a game to be censored, because the "My Room/Amii" feature of this game was blatantly included just for Japan and it's probable upping in sales. I have no doubt this is gonna get nuked when it comes out for the rest of the world, and I seriously be won't miffed by that one bit.

    I just wanted to pop in here and say that last night right after Sonic's 24th anniversary, my friend Isa wanted to draw Sonic, but instead me and my friend Silva decided to completely derail the whole everything and ruin the broth with terrible, terrible ideas.

    From that cesspit came her invention.... Sparki the Fig Newton.


     
    From that point onward, I was convinced. Sparki would be the face of a new generation. A new world, where fruit cookies of questionable quality rule the government and our entire world order. Sonic, Crash and Bubsy's child would tear the world apart with his big meaty mouth.
     
     
     
    Sadly, he died shortly after for unknown reasons. Thoughts go out to his family.

    Sir Tynen reacted to YoshiUnity in The Official F-Zero Dicussion Topic (Less PAWNCHing, more driving! ...Okay, some PAWNCHing)   
    F-ZERO DISCUSSION TOPIC!
     

     
    F-Zero. Probably one of the best racing franchises I've ever played. EVER. I mean, I'll admit. I didn't get into the series until F-Zero GX, but I gladly went back into it's history in order to enjoy all that I missed. This game has an amazing since of speed and skill and just seems unrivaled in most high-speed racing games. [inserted smartass picture post here.]
     
    What I love about this game is simply that. It's all about racing at high speeds and mastering the track with fast thinking and quick reflexes. Can you make that turn? Do you boost now or later? Can you even control your freaking car?! Things might seem easy the first few tracks but, but keep that mindset and the tracks themselves will ride your ass more than the other racers!
     
    So overtime the series has really grown in a sense of more of a multi-player enjoyment, and it wasn't always this way... Heck, the first game didn't even have multi-player, but were still enjoyable.
     
    AND THEN THERE'S SMASH BROS.! FALCONE PAWUNCH! FALCON PAUNCH! FALCONE PAUNCH PAWNCH! PUNCHITY PAWNUCH PAWUCH! PUNCH!!!!1!!111111 IT'S FUNNY! PUNCH! AAAAAAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAAA!!!! PAAAAAAAAAAWNUCH!!!!1!
     
    Now with that done, let's get back to the actual driving game, K?! >:U F-Zero always had an interesting backstory about the grand prix and the characters from Captain Falcon being a bounty hunter to the Horrific Grand Finale killing fourteen drivers in F-Zero X to the WWE Championship Belt of ULTIMATE POWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER in F-Zero GX. I mean, they were never really all that deep, but still interesting whenever you wanted to take a brake from racing.
     
    Out of all in the entries in the series, F-Zero GX has to be my favorite. Not only did I find the sense of speed perfect, but I couldn't get enough of the high octane soundtrack delivering some of my favorite remixes. Also, I love the option of creating my own car and fixing the stats to work for me better. Whenever I didn't use the custom car, I would smoke the competition with some of my favorite drivers. I'm good with a lot of them -- Silver Neelsen/Night Thunder, Both of the Arrows and etc. – but my favorite is definitely Red Gazelle/Mighty Gazelle. That car fits me like a glove.
     
    As for courses, I couldn't get enough of the Lighting, Aeropolis, Sand Ocean, Fire Field and Cosmo Terminal courses. They were good for thinking fast and keeping center.
     
    So yeah, we got an official F-Zero topic now! Discuss the series! Who's your favorite driver? Pawnch? What's your favorite course? Do you cry in your sleep about the fact that we haven't received another entry in the series since Climax LIKE I D-- I mean, are you disappointed that we haven't seen an F-Zero game for quite some time... is what I meant...
     
    Anyway, discuss!
     
    Cue Mute City!

    Sir Tynen reacted to Rucdose in SSMB Directly - The Next Evolution   
    So, if you've been in the E3 with TSS streams that I've recently done, you may have noticed that I had plans to further extend the stream after E3 and I also mentioned this in my last post in the stream's thread. Well, it's finally time to announce my next "project". So, you could say, I'm bringing this Directly to SSMB.
     

     
    hah, jokes
     
    Yes, friends! Welcome SSMB Directly to the stage, a stream that'll be solely focused on streaming Nintendo's Nintendo Directs as well as other stream related content, such as Gamescom conferences, Playstation Experiences and anything else that can fall into that sort of category. I'd also like to confirm that this is a PERMANENT replacement of the E3 2015 Stream, so that means that come E3 2016, I'll be using only the SSMB Directly stream to stream E3.
     
    The Stream is still to be hosted on Taima, so that also means that the schedule banner and all of your favourite emotes are returning, alongside some new emotes coming in the near-ish future! 


     
    HOWEVER, there's going to be some new concepts coming in the future. They should be interesting enough to gauge interest. I'll be running tests occasionally to test these concepts over at NOT SSMB Directly, but rather my own personal Twitch channel which you can find here. These won't be for a while, though.
     
    The stream will officially launch with the next Nintendo Direct or streaming event by one of the other companies and I'll start posting links to SSMB Directly sometime soon.
     
    Let's see how this turns out, shall we?

    Yeah look at the criticism Sony is getting for Shenmue 3 and Final Fantasy 7!
     
    The fact that they decided to ignore Devil's Third, Fatal Frame 5 and stuff like Rodea, Fast Racing Neo or Bravely Second is beyond me. Zelda U would've gotten people excited, too. Heck, they didn't even bother subbing the #FE trailer.

    Sir Tynen reacted to Brad in Nintendo @ E3 2015   
    Yeah, the Developer Stories were definitely interesting and was fantastic to look into the game's conceptual origins... it just didn't have a place on the Digital Event. Treehouse or especially their YouTube channel would have been much better platforms for them. I remember the other day somebody mentioning how Digital Events are better than traditional conferences because the format cut the bullshit and filler so we got game after game, which I recognised and agreed with. But this wasn't true at all this time around - the developer stories, the whole Skylanders part, and even the Puppet skits (which were, yes, adorable and charming) felt like total filler. 
     
    I honestly can't help but feel this was one of the worst conferences of this E3. I love Nintendo to pieces I really do, even if I'm cynical of them because I feel they get too much praise at times. But this event was just too disappointing. Yes, they put plenty of focus on games we'd be seeing this year. But when that line up is completely uninteresting and the star of the show relies on a Mario level creator it just doesn't look good. Star Fox opened strong and it fizzled out so, so quickly. Zelda U's absence left an extremely big hole here and I can't help but wonder why they couldn't put just a little thing together to show us where the game is now. 
     
    Here's hoping next year is a lot better with a new console on the horizon.

    Sir Tynen reacted to JaidynReiman in Nintendo @ E3 2015   
    Yeah, frankly, I don't think the Direct itself was that bad. We knew most of the content, and personally, I figured most of the games announced would be spinoffs. The main thing is the order of titles, as well as additional things they announced BEFORE the Direct that really messed everything up. Then they ended it very badly.
     
     
    Its not the reveals so much as it is the pacing. For having most of the games in their lineup solely first-party games, its honestly not that bad, and they also restricted their announcements to only 2015 and early 2016, which also lessened the amount that could be announced.
     
     
     
    Retro Studios is still working on at least one project, probably even two. There's a rumor that Next Level is still doing a Wii U title (Federation Forces is a smaller budget spinoff title anyway), and we've still got Zelda U.
     
    I bet Retro is doing a spinoff and a 3D Donkey Kong game for Wii U. That's what I think they're doing right now.

    Sir Tynen reacted to Badnik Mechanic in Nintendo @ E3 2015   
    Quoting this one but so many others have said it in one form or another.
     
    I do not follow Nintendo news.
     
    I do not particularly care about Nintendo stuff. 
     
    I am slightly the same for Microsoft.
     
    In the past few E3's I havn't been impressed with either Microsoft or Nintendo (especially Nintendo) since they announced the Xbox One or Wii U. I thought both are kinda daft with terrible service support and either a lack of games I'm interested in, or a lack of games.
     
    Now, this years E3, if you look at my comments in the Microsoft topic I was actually quite impressed with it from a service standpoint in fact if you check out the status updates from that time as well as posts in the topic, it looks like I was the only one on SSMB who actually liked any of it, I thought it was really good and for a time thought 'no way can Sony top this'. 
     
    Which brings me onto this...
     
     
    Right ok... so let me get this straight.
     
    "First up The Last Guardian gameplay and release year!"
     
    "NEXT New game from gurellia which we almost kept completely secret, here it is!"
     
    "NEXT new game from X Studio!"
     
    "NEXT New game from Media mollecule we've not shown before!"
     
    "NEXT FINAL FANTASY 7!" 
     
    "NEXT SHENMUE 3!"
     
    Is a bad thing!? These announcements came instant, it was rapid, and they showed gameplay for virtually EVERYTHING. That is what I want to see, that is what the people who watch these things want to see.
     
    Now compare it to Microsoft for a second.
     
    They did more or less the same thing except for one difference, they spent a lot of time talking about backwards compatibility which we now know isn't as great as it first sounds, other service details... then they got into games, a lot of multi platform titles, but also a lot of CG only stuff.
     
    Now lets look at the Nintendo digital event... did they show games? Yeah a couple, a lot of them we already knew about... and they then decided to do... bring out developers to tell stories... which went on and on... My god what the hell is this?
     
    Show me reasons why I should buy your systems! Not tell me a story!
     
    But hey maybe Nintendo had no idea how unpopular these things would be...
     
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbPFwUiIN14
     

     
    And less than 24 hours before their video...
     
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CNw_ZJbBg4
     
    I can bring up a lot more examples if you like?
     
    Shall we turn to EA's conference for a moment? EA's conference was also quite abysmal, one huge reason why it became so dull and unpopular was that Pele segment which he talks about his life for nearly 7min and they show nothing to do with videogames... that's great if you have some kind of interest in Pele, but kinda shit if you're trying to sell videogames.
     
    Lets go back to Nintendo... Just announce that the Wii U is a legacy system already, they might as well have just said we have nothing to show or just had a 10min long video considering what was on offer for new and current buyers.
     
    Anyone on the fence over what console would not be convinced with anything Nintendo showed, absolutely nothing. Sony and to a point Microsoft seem to know who both their perspective and current customers are as well as who the E3 audience is, they've both learnt how you do these conferences by now, hell just compare Sony's from this year to last, there was no long segments on anything, even the really popular stuff, they kept stuff quite short and to the point, even their VR segments were not stupidly long, gone are the days of 'well lets just dedicate half the conference to this controller or optional thing.  
     
    They know they messed up and knew it was going to be bad just by how quickly that apology came. It was like a punchline to a joke, much like how when Sony showed their Vita section at the end of their con, the camera cuts away to a guy laughing.

    Sir Tynen reacted to Milo in Nintendo @ E3 2015   
    I'm at the point where I can half agree and half disagree. Expecting games Nintendo specifically said were a no show and being mad about it not happening, yeah that's stupid. Being mad about hardly any surprises or new games I feel is a different issue, and on the topic of Nintendo's insistence about showcasing games they already revealed for this E3, I think underlies a bigger issue.
     
    We've got games for 2015, which is great, though the fair chunk of them being stop-gap spinoff titles does make that disappointing for a fair amount of people. But What does this mean for 2016, especially in terms of hypothetical mainline games people were expecting to be unveiled this year? Zelda U (which was initially planned for a release this year at one point, but due to its development phase ended up being delayed out of 2015) and FExSMT (and even then, reception on that is...divided, to say the least) are the only known high-profile titles coming for the Wii U next year.
     
    And while I know future Nintendo Directs exist, E3's supposed to be the year's headlining event. This is the place where you to put in a lot of your promotion for what you consider your biggest titles. This Digital Event seems more like a Nintendo Direct that got shuffled into the E3 phase, or (for analogy's sake, because I like analogies) a DTV film bumped up to a theatrical release.
     
    ...unless all of those stop-gap titles are what Nintendo perceives to be their biggest titles, which raises the overarching question concerning the Wii U as a whole-if 2015 is going to be the last year it's going to get any substantial support (Splatoon, new Yoshi, new Starfox), and then afterwards it's going to turn into a Wii situation in which -outside of spinoffs and maybe one/two big title-, support for it is virtually non-existent. Which may be great for people who want Nintendo to leave the Wii U behind and focus on the next project, whether it be NX or whatever new console Nintendo has in the works (the writing has been on the wall for a while, as previously mentioned), but will effectively lead to Wii U sales outright imploding like the Gamecube, except in an even worse manner as the Wii U has managed to sell even less than that console (the Wii at least, due to its mainstream popularity, had sales peter out due to its mainstream popularity).
     
    The above of which might not sound too bad now, but considers the momentum Nintendo had been building up prior to the Digital Event. Last month, they released Splatoon to positive buzz, and then followed that up with the well-received Nintendo World Championship revival, which included the Super Mario Maker showcase and Earthbound Beginnings Western release-the former of which won over many people who were hesitant or disinterested in getting the game, and the latter was some pretty stellar news for the cult audience of that series. They actually had some positive talk surrounding the Wii U with the mainstream there, only to then reveal barely any new upcoming games, let alone not reveal even one new heavy-hitter. If they wanted to quell any speculation about the Wii U soon being effectively dead in the water (especially with the emphasized theme about "transformation" in this year's Event), their Digital Event pretty much threw them a ton of red meat to feed on. From that perspective, Nintendo managed to finally ring the ball into their court, only for them to drop it.
