Also, Asian girls (Rose). Those two characters could simply not exist and the movie would be better for it, but they prefer to bloat the movie to add every possible configuration in there so there's something to identify with for everyone. It's a running theme (joke?) in most blockbuster movies as of late.…

    Okay, something is seriously wrong here. The last 10+ Rare Cores, and the last three Legendary Cores, all failed to yield a rare Blade. The last two rare Blades I did get, came from Common Cores. (The last one was Yoshimitsu Perceval, for those who might be interested)

    Tropical Freeze was so good that I'd be happy with another 2D Donkey Kong game from Retro Studios, as long as they'd make sure to involve David Wise again.

    The game is getting an update on December 22nd: nintendo.co.uk/News/2017/Decem…7CExpansionPassNews%7Cw50 Among the things that will be improved: Quote: “When you press the X Button, the Skip Travel screen will open the map to your current location. We hope this will make it easier to spot Skip Travel locations and Salvage Points on the map.” Hell. Yeah.

    It's at 2:30 AM for me, so I'll be watching it Friday morning. And by "it", I mean any game trailers or announcements that I deem interesting. Most of the awards don't particularly interest me, so I don't feel the need to watch the whole show.

    I just got an email from Nintendo in the form of a newsletter about "what's hot in December". One of the first items on the list is the Champions' Ballad DLC. This is what it says in full: Quote: “Experience an original story, a new dungeon and even more challenges in DLC Pack 2 - The Champions' Ballad, coming soon to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as part of the Expansion Pass.” Okay, so nothing new, but this in my view is a clear sign that we're not going to see a delay, and the DLC w…

    Still waiting for my Special Edition to get here (ETA is Thursday, fml), so I've been having a look at the cutscenes to get a sense of the story. The voice acting isn't as bad as I'd feared, though it does get rather cringy in certain places, mainly when Rex is trying to do a battle shout. I also thought Nia's voice can get weirdly quiet sometimes, but I love her accent. Pyra's voice is the one I think is gonna have people split the most though - to some, it's gonna sound like the voice actress …

    Smash has a relatively good chance of outselling Zelda, but it certainly doesn't outsell Mario. The first Smash was outsold by both Super Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time, and Brawl was significantly outsold by New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U was outsold by New Super Mario Bros. U and Super Mario 3D World, and Super Smash Bros. for 3DS was similarly outsold by New Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario 3D Land.

    A December Direct is not unheard of. We had them in 2012, 2013 and the Super Smash Bros. Direct in 2015. Of course, January Directs have also been a thing, with a Wii U Direct (plus a Pokémon XY Direct) in January 2013, a Direct in January 2015 (when the New Nintendo 3DS was revealed) and, most notably, the Nintendo Switch presentation that took place in January of this year, with the Fire Emblem Direct happening later that same month. As always I urge people to keep expectations muted.

  • Breath of the Wild is my pick for Game of the Year. It is far more ambitious in how open it allows itself to be, depending on robust gameplay systems rather than tight structure to carry the player through the game. It is a game rife with replay value, which is something I deeply value in adventure games, and it strongly encourages thorough exploration of every nook and cranny of its humongous overworld. Breath of the Wild is also more significant accomplishment than Super Mario Odyssey. Both ar…

  • Alright, let's get crackin'. A few things to address before we get to the list itself; first, they're nearly all Nintendo games. It's no secret that I've been a big fan of Nintendo's philosophy of game design and their high level of polish. This is especially true with regards to the Zelda series, which is why a third of the list is comprised of Zelda games. We'll get into the nit and grit of why I've picked these games in particular, but for now, let's just say that the list doesn't necessarily…

    WIth 19 days left before the game hits, I only have a couple of concerns. First, the voice acting. The E3 trailer is the main reason why I worry (I cringe so hard every time I hear Rex go "TAAAAAKE THIIIIIIS"), but the GameXplain showcase also had a bit of voice acting in it, and while it wasn't as bad as I feared, I still found myself thinking that it wasn't quite up to snuff compared to the voice acting in the first game. While I know that the Japanese voices will be made available at launch t…

    I put spoiler tags on Advance's post. Be mindful of what you put in plain view of others - there are those who haven't gotten the game yet and who would prefer not to learn such details before they've gotten the chance to experience it for themselves.

  • Alright, having played Fire Emblem Warriors a fair bit by now, I have some thoughts on it. The first thing to note is that Fire Emblem mechanics blend rather well into the Musou-style of gameplay. The developers have done a good job in making the weapon triangle feel as important here as it does in the main Fire Emblem games, which is commendable. However, the developers have not done a very good job in balancing this system. The game is practically drowning in sword-wielders, which makes the de…

    Quote from Bill: “The biggest difference between Super Mario Odyssey Breath of the Wild for me is this: Super Mario Odyssey seems perfect and fully realized. It is hard for me to even imagine how it could be better or where Mario could go from here. In contrast, as great as Breath of the Wild is, I see so much untapped potential and room for improvement. ” I can definitely see where you're coming from with this. But to me, the difference between the two is more prevalent in how open Breath of th…

    That's assuming they started work on the next Smash immediately though, which isn't necessarily a given. Sakurai didn't get started on Smash 4 until after he'd completed Kid Icarus Uprising, which was several years after Brawl had been completed.

    To be honest I did expect them to port Smash to the Switch, and I even held a small hope that it'd be announced at E3, but at this point I think I can accept it if it doesn't happen. It'd be great to have the game on a console that I'm actually playing on, but that's the case with other Wii U titles as well. Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Hyrule Warriors, Super Mario Maker, Bayonetta 2 - these would all have been great to have on the Switch. That said, a port of Smash 4 would probably generate the…

  • I'm still hyped enough for FE:Warriors to know that I'm getting it when I can. However, I have to say that the decision to focus squarely on Awakening, Fates and Shadow Dragon has dampened my enthusiasm somewhat.

  • I'm not sure it'd matter if Demise, Ganon or anyone evil for that matter put on Majora's Mask, since it's a sentient being with its own free will and everything. It probably wouldn't have been able to manipulate Demise or Ganon, and we've already seen in Majora's Mask (the game) that when the mask is no longer able to manipulate someone, it will discard them outright and act on its own. As for who's strongest out of Demise and Ganon, I think Breath of the Wild has placed that particular match sq…

  • I''ve been playing Stardew Valley on the Nintendo Switch, and more recently Shadow of War for the PS4. Both games require quite the time investment, and have very different approaches to how to deal with establishing and developing personal relationships. Very different approaches.

    Quote from Canyarion: “I'm pretty surprised to see so many people wanting to pick up Skyrim on the Switch. I honestly thought it was going to flop hard. I assumed Zelda would be more than enough for adventurers. ” I think Zelda may be part of the reason why people might be looking into Skyrim. Fantastic as Breath of the Wild is, it's been out since March and people who've been playing it since then are gonna be wanting a different, but similar experience. Skyrim can give them that quite easily.

    I'm going to pay for a portable version, yes. I play with my Switch far, far more than I do my PS4, partly because I can bring the Switch with me. Hence I'll get more value with the Switch version of the game than the PS4 version. And, y'know, it's my money.
