  1. Another teaser left right to the very last second - it appears that we're finally getting another Sonic Racing Game. They've confirmed that it is not a sequel to any of their titles so that means it's not apart of the All-Stars line and probably a Sonic-only racer. That said, the car in the teaser does look Sonic's Speedstar from the All-Star titles. We also got a darkened out logo that empathizes the R, similar to how Sonic R did it. With that, I think it's fair to say that this is going to be a new racing title like it was leaked a few weeks back.
  2. Just announced during the Direct, the rumours ended up true - New Super Mario Bros U is getting a deluxe port to the Switch! Taking a title right from SMB Deluxe on Game Boy Colour, not only will the game feature the original games' features, but will try to fix some of the stuff NSMBU has been lambasted for. The blue toad has been dropped and replacing him will be Toadette and Nabbit. Furthermore, we'll have New Super Luigi U as an additional mode for free. They didn't mention much else unfortunately however.
  3. The news just hit and a lot of things are still developing, so I don't know for sure what the case is. From IGN: TL;DR: Telltale is seemingly facing a lot of setbacks, including losing nearly all of it's staff bar 25 members who are reportedly only there to finish The Walking Dead The Final Season and the other projects have been cancelled. What happens after is anyone's guess. According to other news outlets, Telltale is also possibly shutting it's doors entirely after TWD Season 4. Guess for the moment, we'll have to see how things develop. That said, best to take everything with a grain of salt for now, the information about it is rather all of the place at the moment, so it could be anyone's guess. Edit: More info: More details including things that after TWD Season 1, a lot of their projects was falling incredibly short of the mark and failing to turn a profit, the 25 members left are basically there only to finish the forth and final season of Walking Dead before shutting down entirely. Poker Night 2 (filled with licensed characters) was removed from sale, and many other things. This doesn't spell anything good for the company.
  4. Comparing those two to this and stating that they are failed ventures implies that's the comparison piece you're going for, the wording on this is pretty confused.
  5. This is what happens when you level grind in Birth by Sleep

  6. How is it a failed venture when it was only announced a few days ago? Better yet, how is it a failed venture when Nintendo's games are overpriced as hell and yet the NES Classic and SNES Classic both did well enough?
  7. 6 minutes in and I can't believe this is real, fucking hell Kotaku

      Political? I haven't played it yet but what does politics have to do with saving people??

    2. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Well I've heard one review moan that Spidey is a machine of the police.

  8. Well, bad news for MM Fully Charged - it got it's UK premiere announced and it's not even hitting Cartoon Network UK, it's going directly to a free channel and only shown one episode per day.

      Yep. Starts second of October.

    3. PaddyFancy


      Bad news, everyone gets to watch it.

    4. Polkadi~♪


      I can't wait for this show to hit the kids afternoon schedule of the GO! channel in my country.

      That'll be when you know it's no good.

  9. UK finally got a confirmed channel and air date. It won't be Cartoon Network UK, but rather Pop UK, which is a free channel. ...That doesn't really bode well. Apart from the Hasbro shows that air on Pop due to not having a version of the Hub in the UK, Pop isn't really well known for having good successful shows still running. The only exception I can think of is Dragon Ball Z Kai and even that was due to the fact no other channel would pick up the Funi dub, wanting the Ocean dub instead, which Kai didn't have. Edit: Just checked myself, and confirmed it. Even worse, it's only getting one episode per day. For those in the UK with a curiosity: Episode 1: Throwing Shade Part 1 - 02/10 - 3:30 Episode 2: Throwing Shade Part 2 - 03/10 - 3:30 Episode 3: Drilling Deep - 04/10 - 3:30 Episode 4: Videodrone - 05/10 - 3:30 Episode 5: Please Rush Home - 06/10 - 3:30
  10. Finally, a good Sonic story.

    Disney's Wreck-It Ralph 2

    I wouldn't say that, because as opposed to the idea of a "Grass is always greener" story, it'd be more so that Vanellope has an entire kingdom that relies on her to be present, the same way the characters of Fix it Felix rely on Ralph and Felix to make the game operate and keep them plugged in as a result. However, we could also draw the idea that Vanellope could hold resentment or anger towards her kingdom after Sugar Rush gets shut down, keeping in mind that the person who broke the machine was playing as Vanellope, so it wouldn't surprise me if they went for a "it's all your fault" moment. Not to mention that aesthetically, Vanellope is pretty different compared to the rest of the cast who always act more "sweet" and such, while Vanellope is a tomboy and often times - troublemaker. You could make the argument that even if everyone in Sugar Rush shaped up, apologised, and befriended her, she would feel somewhat like an outcast compared to the others, we already know she loves action-filled racing and if the trailer is anything to go by, the additional violence and danger just boosts her love for the game more. Vanellope was bullied when she was thought of as a glitch, so when the machine is unplugged and she loses her kingdom, she might just cut her losses. She heads on the internet first at Ralph's insistence and then abandons Sugar Rush for Slaughter Race after falling in love with it. On top of what we can only assume - the internet trends woman or whoever is the villain - tries to further drive Ralph and Vanellope apart. We already know Vanellope's position and friendship with Ralph is going to be tested, especially with the other Disney princesses bringing it up and discussing it.
  12. Level 50, only 30 more levels to go before Terra is ready to go up against the super bosses.

    I honestly think I never want to touch Birth by Sleep again after I 100% it.

  13. Doesn't change the fact that it's almost definitely end-game when you look at the health bar. BH6's world also had bosses with massive health bars so it's not a forgone conclusion to assume they're close together story-wise unless they buffed the boss health for trailers too.
  14. Tales of Monkey Island is a fantastic game, and I’d argue possibly the best of all the Monkey Island games. Granted, I might be biased because of the fact it was my first MI game but after playing all of the others to completion, bar Escape, I still feel Tales was the strongest. It felt like the best natural progression of the series after a near decade hiatus, Guybrush and Elaine are now pirate captains, Guybrush is arguably more confident in his abilities without getting overly egotistical like in Monkey Island 2. The humour I felt was probably one of the best in the series, especially from Episode 3 onwards. That entire court section in Episode 4 still remains one of the funniest moments in the series to date, between Stan’s awful defences, Guybrush’s attempt to defend himself and calling himself as a witness. The only weak episode I’d say was 2, just didn’t particularly find the mer people Island interesting, Granted it got better during the finale of the episode. But I suppose I also really like how many risks Tales took and how it had a good sense of finality. For once, there wasn’t a shoehorned cliffhanger, it raised the stakes of previous games and brings up interesting ideas, LeChuck as a good guy and playing the long game to get payback on Guybrush especially was incredibly well done to me. That chilling moment in Episode 4 when he finally does it and pulls his betrayal at the eleventh hour was absolutely shocking too and just not done in MI. With all the times we had the joke deaths of Guybrush, like drowning underwater after waiting ten minutes or basing MI2’s story around Guybrush being stuck over a pit and casually retelling the events to Elaine, this was the first time they did something like this and treated it as a serious legit death and total shocking moment, and Episode 5’s ending events of the Adventure Goes On just felt like a nice way to end it all, especially with the final battle having LeChuck at his strongest. I honestly can’t believe it’s nearly been a full decade since Tales released.
  15. This raises a very interesting question, because not only does it give us confirmation of where BH6 is placed, but also other things. First things first: Assuming this isn't just for the demo, the large health bar on Aqua fits with what we've seen of BH6 in the trailers, where one of the bosses has a lot of health bars too. Furthermore, if you look closely, it looks like Sora's welding the BH6 keyblade. More importantly, this means something worse, that's definitely the real Aqua who was norted. There was rumours going around that the one we saw in the earlier trailer with Mickey/Riku was simply a "Phantom Aqua", a manifestation of Mickey's guilt, like how Phantom Aqua was a manifestation of Aqua's own guilt and hopelessness. But if Sora is now in a fight with her, not only does that indicate that Riku/Mickey do not save her the first time, but Sora has to jump back in to finish the job. That said however, that leads to a few interesting theories that could back up the theory that some of the "norts" will be freed. If Sora is here to fight Aqua, it's possible they are gonna stick with 0.2's intro and have it be that Sora's heart and it's connections are strong enough to beat Xehanort. Keeping in mind, the process of a "norting" is more or less infecting one's heart and bending it to Xehanort's will, making that person a willing vessel. It could stand to reason that while Xehanort is a strong enough darkness to do this, Sora's heart is so strong and filled with light that it can reverse the effects. One forcefully bends a heart to one's will, forcefully forging a connection, while Sora's heart makes connections through friendships and hard work. Idk if that's the case but -shrug-. Also, I had a thought. What if Xehanort's plan is to reopen the Realm of Darkness for his keyblade war? In KH1, Sora and co needed one welder in the Realm of Light and one in the Realm of Darkness, is it possible that's why Aqua is still inside of the Realm of Darkness? To act as the key for the Realm of Darkness?

    New Super Mario Bros U - Deluxe - Switch - January 11th 2019

    Not really, no. The only series I see something like that being canon would be Mario & Luigi, and that's just because that's the only game with enough self-aware writing that they'd let Bowser do something smart and impersonate Peach to take the throne or something while making jokes about it.

    The Ace Attorney Topic (DS, 3DS, iOS) - News in OP

    Has there been any word on a physical release? I'm really hoping the English release gets one.
  18. So uh

    Am I the only who feels like Spidey PS4 made Spider-Man 2 the game seem reaaaally dated?

    1. Strickerx5


      That just tends to happen when modern games come out and actually improve upon older titles. See Mania to the classics or Mario Kart 8 to the others.

      That being said though, I haven't played 2 in like... well probably since it was released on the GC but I can't imagine that it actually lives up to the praise it's been getting recently. Like, it's probably good. I enjoyed it for what it was at the time... but I'm not expecting a licensed game from 14 years ago to hold up particularly well.

    If they're saving the big game announcement for tomorrow, then it makes sense why the trilogy announce was today - because people's going to want to get caught up on the story before a potential AA7. AA4-6 were all heavily reliant on past lore and backstory to understand some of the plot threads so it wouldn't surprise me if they wanted to get the games onto console beforehand to get everyone back up to speed. Otherwise we'd have the same situation that's currently present for KH3 on Xbox One - a well-anticipated new title in a long running lore-based series arriving on new consoles without any of the lore that provides context. It's still pretty stupid to announce it as unmissable for AA fans but it's nowhere near the worst idea in the world to put out the trilogy to not only try to gather a new fanbase along with the pre-established one, but possibly get people up to speed for AA7 if it happens. Wouldn't surprise me if we saw AA7 announced tomorrow and then a second trilogy release with Investigations, AJ, and possibly Dual Destinies.
  20. If you want more ideas of how bad it was, according to this video: The staff were literally just told you're fired, you have 30 minutes to leave the premises.
  21. A reminder that the post game in KH Birth By Sleep is absolutely awful,

    1. Teoskaven


      Vanitas Sentiment is quite possibly the worst superboss in the franchise.  Yes, even worse than Dustflier.

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      At the very least, you can cheese Vanitas Sentiment with the strike raid method, Mysterious Figure is cheap as fuck, has little to no openings, and has no easy method to do it. 

    3. Teoskaven


      There kinda is one, just spam Thunder Surge and pray for the best.

    4. Ryannumber1gamer


      That doesn't really count when that's the only viable method of fighting him :V

    5. Wraith


      Game got bad waaay before the post game

    6. JosepHenry


      Strong opinions here...

      Vanitas can get runover by a Disney train

    7. Ryannumber1gamer


      I honestly don't know how anyone could tell me that it's a strong opinion that post-game BBS sucks, to be frank I'd say it's as close to a fact as it gets, and I don't say something like that lightly.

      Finishing up the journal, getting all commands, running the Mirage Arena, playing the godawful mini-games, fighting the superbosses that aren't designed as well as KH2, and demand nothing but spamming and exploiting one single thing to beat them, the sticker collection, the command board. But no no no, the thing that puts it over the realm of downright terrible is needing to do all of that three times to get 100% completion. You need to level grind three separate characters with different playstyles, and while Ven and Aqua can get away with around Level 50-60, Terra is so downright awful that he needs at least Level 80 to stand a hope of winning any superboss, bar using the Vanitas exploit.

      It's so stupidly filled with padding and filler and then stretched out yet again by triple that. According to my save file, it took me 52 hours to 100% Aqua, let alone adding Terra and Ven on top of it. And while I could take a few hours out where I had the game paused and still had the timer running, I'd say it still took at least 40 hours. It is downright godawful and I don't know how anyone can defend it with a straight face.

      Dont get me wrong is a total fact

      Just throwing some shade at Josh and his respectfully wrong opinions :)

    9. Wraith


      Nothing you say can make me feel worse than playing Birth by Sleep did

      Show me Anguish boy

    The Ace Attorney Topic (DS, 3DS, iOS) - News in OP

    The way I’m possibly seeing this is Capcom testing the waters for expanding the series. With the 3DS nearing the end of its life, Ace Attorney will be making the jump to consoles for the first time. Switch still counts in handheld mode and if you’re able to use more console power and on top of that - play it on a big screen anyway, why not use it to expand the series in terms of availability. I know it’s disappointing that we aren’t getting 7 or even a second collection with Dual Destinies and the like, but this could be a huge deal, three different install bases that might not have played the series due to remaining relatively a Nintendo exclusive. PlayStation is also home to several different visual novel series like Danganronpa too, so there’s already a potential fan base there, and if this goes well, we could see Capcom throw more effort into the series now that it has a bigger fan base to play the games.

    If it’s on PlayStation, Steam and Xbox, trophy/achievements have to be added, every game requires them. Even the IOS port had achievements, and fun ones based around finding various hidden gags and jokes throughout the trilogy, like finding the step ladder gag in each game. Only reason the 3DS port didn’t have it was due to the lack of achievement support on not only 3DS but Switch.

    The Ace Attorney Topic (DS, 3DS, iOS) - News in OP

    I’m perfectly fine with this outcome, I’ve wanted AA Trilogy on a non-handheld for awhile, and add in the fact there’s trophy support now and that makes me want it more.
