Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

ifm8tpcO4vw Something new! It's not a 1st party title, and I suspect it probably won't be to everyone's tastes, but I'm personally super excited for it. I've got over 300 hours on the Switch version of the first Hyrule Warriors, and I still haven't remotely finished everything yet. If this has even...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

s_UcjEq2Dgk Now we're getting somewhere. The actual game releases are mostly stuff that's been rumored for a while now, and it's hard to imagine they weren't supposed to come out sooner, but it's good to have confirmation, and 3d All-Stars in 2 weeks is awesome. OTOH, Galaxy 2 getting totally ghost...

Re: Features you want from the PS5 and Xbox Series X

PS5 Full disc-based backwards compatibility from PS1 to PS4 with multiple options for upscaling, scanlines, supersampling and so on. In addition, more older PS1,2 and 3 titles being released on the store for download. The PS3 is the biggest bottleneck there, even modern PCs can't really manage soft...

Your comparison of Spyro to various N64 platformers left out one very important detail: you don't get to be a *dragon* in Mario 64 :)

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Well, I guess that's *something* at least: https://twitter.com/NintendoAmerica/status/1291011315159519232 I'm glad it's finally happening, and adding new content to a game that already had quite a lot of it is pretty sweet, but another Wiiu re-release is hardly going to anchor their Fall/Winter line...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

It's not as if the first half of the year was exactly stacked, either. We got Animal Crossing in March, which was originally slated for last year, just now Paper Mario, and a handful of 2nd party remasters/remakes.

Yeah, I foresee a lot of Gamestops being perpetually "out of stock" on the digital-only versions unless Sony is taking a big loss on them.

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

Aside from a couple of games I’m genuinely interested in everything shown tonight. It was a games showcase with something for everyone. Splendid. I don't actually agree, I pretty much own a PS4 to play RPGs on, and while there were a lot of games that looked cool, there was really nothing that actu...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Someone on Twitter pointed me to this clip, presumably from the Japanese trailer, which shows a bit more of the combat, and it looks potentially promising.

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

I'm a huge fan of both the Persona games and the Warriors beat-em-up games, especially the ones based on other franchises I've loved, so I was naturally super excited when Atlus announced that they were working with Koei-Tecmo on a Warriors-inspired Persona 5 sequel. One of the biggest reasons was t...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I loved Xenoblade, but wasn't planning on spending the 80+ hours to play through it again, until I saw they added an epilogue, now I'm not so sure. Same here. Wasn't sure I could bring myself to play the entire game again when I have a substantial backlog, as much as I loved it. But turns out the E...

Re: Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore

I'm currently about 75%-ish through the remake, after bouncing off it originally, and yeah, as others have said, it's basically Persona 4.5. The Fire Emblem references basically consist of the names of weapons, some characters, and some sound effects, and that's pretty much it. The combat is super f...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I've played Temtem for about an hour and a half so far, too short to form any real opinion, but so far, it's pretty much exactly what it looks like, an MMO that's almost an exact mechanical copy of Pokemon. The only major difference is that all battles are 2v2, to facilitate co-op play.
