      He squeezes them and they explode

  2. they introduce shadow to the classic sonic universe but they don't redesign him he's literally just sa2 shadow and like a foot taller than everyone else

      He is also turned into a literal punching bag who's completely incompetent and constantly loses to the good guys and never joins them, because that's what classic fans would want

      he goes on flashback ridden monologues during cutscenes only to smash cut back to classic sonic and tails sleeping when he finishes

      Woah, Labyrinth's background had some really strong Mystic Cave, Hidden Palace & Lava Reefy vibes.

      Pretty cursed to not have the SEGA logo with the white BG and choir before the title, as well the idea that Ballhog would be the first enemy instead of Motobug.  Also those bouncing wrecking ball doesn't look very fun, although I always wonder how they'd even work from a gameplay standpoint even if they'd get polished up better.

  5. well, there's age of calamity 100%ed. kinda went out with a whimper; the last mission in terms of recommended level wasn't nearly as hard as the couple before it, especially not with a maxed-out master sword. good game, though, fingers crossed for some meaty dlc like the first HW got.

      100%'d? Damn, where do you find the the time? I couldn't fathom playing a game like this to 100%.

  8. damn did i pick a hell of a time to replay hyrule warriors or what

    feeling super hyped for this already, wanna go murder 1000 dudes and learn more about botw's hyrule before it got wrecked

    i am wondering what the playable cast is going to look like though. i'm sure they won't be doing crazy time shenanigans for the main story again, so will it just be link, zelda, and the champions in story mode? outside of that are they going to port over/rework characters from the first, and/or add new ones, or are they going to keep it more modestly sized and focused on botw?

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      focus seems to be on reusing as much content as they can so i'd expect any character that already existed in BOTW

      even if they weren't actually alive yet that shouldn't stop them from being playable in whatever mission modes this has

      botw style versions of iconic characters would be cool to see but im not expecting it.

    2. KHCast

      KHCast

      That’s what I’m wondering. Persona 5 Scramble taught me basically not to always expect from KT a huge robust cast, so similar could be happening here as well, having a more condensed character roster while focusing on fleshing out everything else about the game to make up for it

    3. JezMM

      JezMM

      Would make sense to only have the canon characters playable on your first time through the story, but have unlockables for replaying stages.  I'd definitely like to see some favourite characters as unlockables who weren't around 100 years ago, like Paya and the present-day family of the champions that help you get into the divine beasts (can you imagine the outrage if Sidon wasn't playable, c'mon).  Hopefully they don't save ALL the cool stuff for paid DLC, mind.

    4. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      oooh, i wonder if they'll make a young botw impa as a playable character...

  9. man i try to be patient and keep a level head about this but even i'm starting to get antsy waiting for some "real" nintendo news.

    a 3rd party mini-direct that's like half rhythm/music games just does not scratch the itch

    1. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      i hear that. like i cringe a little bit whenever i see someone all "RAH WHAT IS GOING ON AT NINTENDO HOW CAN THEY NOT BE SHOWING ME EVERYTHING" but like... it's been a long time and the horizon is looking pretty empty

    2. Wraith

      Chili Dawg

      yeah i mean the pandemic is the obvious reason why, it's hard to really fault anyone. doesn't make it any easier to be a fan, but hey, less mario games is definitely one of the less serious problems out there these days

  10. just finished replaying sticker star. honestly? i can't really call it a good game, but i still had some solid fun with it. its biggest problem is just that it doesn't communicate well, leading to a lot of running around and wasting time. no indication of what thing stickers you need and when, inconsistent indications that you need to paperize and place a sticker or pull something off, hidden blocks that are necessary to progress but have no indication of their existence...it gets to the point where you really ought to play with a guide nearby to save yourself the trouble.

    that and a few other issues aside though, it has its moments. some fun setpieces, some clever puzzles, the battle system's mostly fine. there are worse ways i could've spent my time.

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Eh, I didn't really like it. Not because it wasn't classic Paper Mario, I just thought it got too boring around the third chapter. That fucking forest, man...

    2. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      yeah the forest is definitely the low point of the game. decent concept but it drags on for far too long and it's got some of the game's most annoying "tricks".

    3. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      I have no guilt in playing with a guide Many may nag at Nintendo for being a little too hand-holdy with how it guides players through their recent games, but here it just feels like it slaps your hand down at any moment you'd consider lending it out to it. Putting characterization aside, what makes Kertsi fail as a fairy helper when other Nintendo fairy helpers did right, including her own predecessors and successors: She only provides commentary rather than hints, even when the Zelda fairies get very disruptive when they chime in against your will, they're there for advice when you do need it. Asides from basic tutorials towards the begging, Kerti does not even have that. But she's only one of several other ways SS lacks in pointing you in the right direction, never mind forcing you towards it. 

       

      @Your Vest Friend

      Even when going blind, I was a little savvy about this. I decided to go through the forest before the desert, so I got exposed to the shit show the game gets known for early on. You have to get to the end of the first world to unlock it, but otherwise most backtracking is limited to the forest world itself. There's no EXP to hold me back from going out of order anyway. 

  11. well it's nice to see nintendo hasn't forgotten about pikmin but i was hoping for a new game and not just a port of 3...not sure i can justify buying it twice for just a few conveniences and extras.

     

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      I can't justify it but I'm doing it anyway

       

       

      It's been 7 years

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @Wraith But it's only been three years since Hey Pikmin! What more could you ask for?

      Yeah, I'm not looking forward to the inevitable full price tag that Nintendo insists upon. Pikmin 3 with some new bells and whistles is nice. But really it should be a collection of all three games.

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      And another Wii U game is saved. What’s left at this point? Just Xenoblade X and 3D World right?

    4. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      @Strickerx5 The Zelda HD games and apparently the Fatal Frame game was really good as well. 

      Spoiler

      I'd argue Nintendo Land, an actual Switch port of Yoshi's Wooly World and Kirby and the Rainbow Curse as well but I know people don't like that last one 

       

    5. mayday2592

      mayday2592

      Really don't get why Nintendo charges full price for games from last gen with usually minimal additions. Literally every other port/remastering is 40 bucks, and in some cases quite a bit of new content.

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Because they'll still top the charts. That's why.

    7. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Because nobody bought a Wii U.

  14. started replaying color splash due to origami king putting it back in my memory

    turns out it's still good, actually

  15. sonic and shadow accidentally chaos control the ark 50 years into the past, crashing it into itself, killing everyone on both

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      Just chaos control it into the future. That way they don’t have to deal with  the repercussions now. Leave it to the future generations

    2. Harkofthewaa

      Harkofthewaa

      Then Silver comes back into the past like "You're the Ark Trigger! You set off the explosion that ruined my world! For the sake of the future I must destroy you! IT'S NO USE, TAAAAKE THIS!!!".

    3. KHCast

      KHCast

      So send it farther in the future. Problem solved 

    4. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      @Diogenes And then cause a time paradox because the ARK crashing into itself can't happen/exist because the future version crashed into itself in the past.

  17. i wonder why is it exactly that mario's ? blocks feel like a natural part of his world to me but sonic's monitors/item boxes stick out in his

    1. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Maybe cause the monitors are manufactured items, normally sitting out in the open?

    2. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Because Mario's whole world is blocks. Or was blocks, but whatever.

      Monitors are out of place in a purely nature environment.

    3. Wraith

      Wraith

      there are blocks everywhere in mario. real ass square monitors in sonic's curvy forests and beaches are weird, I guess?

      also might be just because it more immediately calls to mind a real world item

    4. StaticMania

      StaticMania

      Are the bubble capsules a better replacement?

    5. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Unless you choose to still following the SMB1's manual implication of Toads being cursed into blocks and that's the heads of those cursed Toads you eating to turn bigger. But it only showed getting turned into brick blocks anyway.

       

      The way I see it are that, the ? Blocks are as natural as ancient ruins could be considered natural, they have been handmade over a long period that they eventually become part of the environment. Where the monitors as Sonic I can easily see as being Eggman creations to reinforce the pro environmental theme; why would he put stuff like Sonic's head and shoes in there is another story.

  18. quality entertainment

     

  19. real nice how vesperia's coliseum puts a single character against multiple opponents (probably the battle system's biggest weakness), expects you to beat it with every playable character including ones that can't reliably outpace enemy attacks, and includes a "boss" that can just instakill you after landing enough attacks so you can't even grind levels to cheese it.

    because i totally didn't get stunlocked in a corner by 3 enemies and then instantly killed with no apparent way out, and i am definitely not mad right now

  20. yeah man great great sure just let the boss instakill my entire party with a single unstoppable attack yeah that's some fucking game design huh

     

    fucking rpgs

  21. well that was a fucking waste

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      At least some of the Mii costumes were okay?

    2. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      meh. cuphead's ok but doesn't have nearly the impact sans had, and the rest are forgettable

    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I thought Altaïr was cool. But that's as much as you can say for any Mii costume. "Oh that's nice", and then it never crosses your mind every again unless you happen to really want to play as a barely animated, off model version of your favourite character with a generic moveset.

  22. oh for fuck's sake nintendo

    just

    fuck off

    1. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      how many hundreds, thousands of characters out there and they pick marth #5 (or whatever, i've lost count, who cares)

  23. watch dorohedoro

  24. ok so if anyone here has played tales of vesperia, is there a reason the game swings wildly between decent and absolute pig shit?

    twice now i've stumbled into one-vs-multiple battles with little advance warning where the enemies can stunlock you for half your health, and there seems to be no reasonable way of dealing with this.

    1. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      What difficulty are you playing on?

    2. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      normal. i've played symphonia so i understand the gist of the combat, and i haven't had much trouble with normal fights or most bosses, but the combat system just seems to break down when you have no allies and enemies can gang up on you.

    3. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      You basically need to combo enemies in long strings and kill them before they can get the jump on you. Run off, heal with a gel, lather rinse repeat. 

    4. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      yeah except that if i try to combo one guy, the other stabs me in the ass. and while i'm recovering from that, the first guy stabs me in the dick. and if i try to block i get stabbed in the ass, and if i try to run and heal i get stabbed in the dick.
