    Quick highlight at @Dcubed's expense. (He's on the left) Anyway, here's the results. GP3 And here's the current League Table. Not much to say here this week. Except that @RedShell wins the "Didn't make a damn bit of difference" award this week. But given his high average, that's quite remarkable. So next week is the grand finale, to both my December Death Themes and 2017's League. The results look pretty much decided. Nothing short of an utter madman could disrupt this flow. Wait... Who's running the League right now? Ah... Well, isn't that a shame? Last League Night: 21st December 8pm Room 1 @BowserBasher is host @Glen-i @BowserBasher @martinist @punio75 @viceview51 No, the picture hasn't glitched up, there will be 1 GP this week. But with a big massive twist. You think you know the tracks in Mario Kart 8 by now? Well, we will see about that. This week's gimmick no-one asked for is Backwards Racing. Everyone will be reversing throughout the entire night. You go forward, you come last. I will know. Don't even try it. And you thought 50cc was slow. Here's a little maneuver that you will need in order to get through this. Pulling this off is simple, just hold the brake and accelerate button at the same time and turn, you'll spin on the spot. Another key thing to remember is that holding X lets you look behind you. No doubt important when driving backwards. You'll also need to think carefully about items, not every item is going to help you here. The tracks are all possible to do backwards without ever going off course, I made sure of that. Remember the golden rule: All progress must be done backwards. I will check MKTV afterwards, I've got nothing better to do. Sign up Now!

    So I've finally booted the game up again. It took me ages to figure out the controls again. I've not even touched on the DLC stuff. I spent some time exploring Hyrule Castle. I didn't really do this before as last time I found the quickest way to Ganon. I did this as I was feeling burnt out by that point. I forgot how much I enjoy this game. I literally spent about two hours just killing enemies, reading lore, exploring, korok seeds and completing shrines. The time passed so quickly! Now that I have defeated Ganon i'm less bothered about my best weapons breaking. I'm going to be spending more time tackling enemies and coming up with different strategies rather than avoiding them altogether. Such a fantastic game! The rain still pissed me off though

    @Glen-i, just when I thought you couldn't come up with anything crazier than the "Smart Steering" GP, you go and pull this utter insanity out of the bag! Needless to say I am very much IN!

    I can see where Glen-i is coming from though. I also usually have an orchestra following me when I'm taking a walk in the park.

    Thank you @Jonnas, you've inspired me to write a petition to completely ban "Laifu" from the English vocabulary. Hey, you know what has the exact same letters as Laifu? Lufia & the Fortress of Doom is a turn-based RPG published by Taito of all companies (Made by Neverland). It came out in 1993 on the SNES. America only, mind you, because it's an early 90's JRPG, so of course it never came out in Europe. Despite it's naming style, it's actually not a rip-off of the Harry Potter Books. Coulda fooled me... Some of you may recall me playing the Game Boy Lufia game last year. You know? That game where he killed Conan for no reason? This is the first game in the series and is my second Lufia game. The story begins with a bloke called Maxim. He and his group of friends are in the very definite Final Dungeon, Lv 80 and ready to kick some Final Boss tushie. They then do, but a final trap leaves Maxim and his friend Selan in a pretty hopeless situation. And then they're never seen again for the rest of the game. 100 years pass and you play as a bloke with no name who is blatantly Maxim's descendant. He's friends with a strange girl called Lufia. However, history decides to pull a Secret of Mana and repeat itself. The 4 villains (Called Sinistrals) that fought Maxim all those years ago have shown up again. So it's up to Not Maxim and Titular Character Girl to defeat the Sinistrals and probably blow up the Fortress of Doom (Actual in-game name). The story hasn't got that much going for it. It's pretty standard fare for JRPG's. Which is fine, this was the 90's, after all. I will say that the opening is pretty novel, giving you control of a full party of 4 characters for 5 minutes before unceremoniously ditching them for the actual main character. I have to say the big late-game twist is pretty novel as well. Apart from those, don't expect anything too amazing, do expect some ropey translation though. The gameplay is your typical Turn-based RPG fare. You explore the world, advancing the story, exploring some dungeons and get into all sorts of random encounters. Even for it's time, there's not really anything that helps Lufia stand out from other RPG's. Not a bad thing, and I certainly wasn't expecting anything more. It does it's job and it does it pretty well. The visuals are pretty unambitious as well, it's pretty early in the SNES's life and it kinda shows. It is weird having the battle screen just be an overlay instead of a separate screen. The music is also pretty safe, nothing that memorable, but nothing truly offensive either. Lufia 1 is not going to light your world on fire, it's a pretty standard, by-the-books RPG that sets out to do just that and nothing more. I certainly enjoyed it, but on a console with a great amount of quality JRPG's, Lufia just kinda fails to live up to the lofty standard. Still... Why yes, yes it is. Your pie sucks!

    I think you could've won that first battle if that High Jump Kick didn't miss. Nice Hawlucha set though. Yeah that 3rd trainer wasn't very good, didn't even have decent shiny colour 'mons either. That Dragonite just looked ill.

    Hey, you know what people didn't like in the Sun and Moon thread? That's right. My bloody Battle Videos. The first US/UM online competition has started. Johto VS Alola (That title is misleading, I thought it'd be Gen 2 and Gen 7 only, it actually means Alola Pokedex plus Gen 2 and Gen 1 Pokemon, why are all Gen 1 Pokemon allowed?) Good news is Megas seem to be back! Woo! Team Dragon Croissant Spaceship go! 8ATG-WWWW-WWWB-RM8Q This match pretty much sums up my first half of today's matches. Be amazed at my dreadful luck as some random Japanese girl and the millionth Mimikyu takes me to school yet again. U35G-WWWW-WWWB-RMUL Gen 5 music, FTW! Anyway, this was some weird match. Here's a game. Try and guess what my opponent's opening move is. You'll never get it. H47W-WWWW-WWWB-RNW8 This guy only entered this competition to show off his hacked Pokemon. Because nothing says "My team is hacked" like a team of Shinies. This time, I get to be the random Japanese girl and proceed to get through completely unscathed. Quick impressions of the meta are that it hasn't changed too much, except for Kommo-o's new completely insane Z-Move. What were they thinking!? Balance goes right out of the window with that. It's bad enough that it hits like a nuke and hits both opponents in a double battle, but it also raises all of Kommo-o's stats? How is that fair? Luckily, Kommo-o hasn't got the speed or the defenses to back it up, getting two Pokemon to gang up on it normally does it in. Hawlucha is catching all sorts of people off guard though, instant momentum thanks to Tapu Koko's Electric Surge using the Electric Seed instantly doubles it's speed thanks to Unburden. Fits beautifully with my Alolan Raichu based shenanigans. Just gotta watch out for Oranguru and it's Trick Room. Marowak is there to provide a hard counter to anyone who tries to one-up me with Pheromosa while Zapdos and Tailwind is a back up Pokemon just in case Tapu Koko would be unwise to use.

    Learnt a cheeky new technique from another player on Clam Blitz. They were on the opposing team and threw a clam towards me, which I initially tried to avoid, thinking it was a projectile , but once I realised it was just a clam and went to collect it, they then chucked in a bomb! Very nearly got me with it too. At first I thought they had thrown the clam by mistake (which I found hilarious at the time ) but looking back on it now it's actually a pretty cool tactical move. Captured a vid of it: This game keeps getting better and better, already played it way more than I did the Wii U original. Just wish they would patch out that bloody startup sequence! At the very least make it skippable!! It massively detracts from the quick pick up and play nature of the Switch.

    I wouldn't say that a used one is bad per-say, more that I'd be concerned about it possibly being fake. As long as you're confident that it is not an el-fako one, go for it. @Ashley. Are you sure that it's not a matter of your Joy-con's wireless connection to the Switch getting cut off? Mario Kart is probably gonna be a kind of worst case scenario (especially if you're using gyro controls without the wheel) as your hands are wrapped around the Joy-con and will block the signal very easily if you have a dodgy Joy-con. And in a game that uses motion controls, wireless cut-offs are gonna be very noticeable. The wireless cut-off issues are a known problem with a huge chunk of the first lots of Joy-Cons that were produced (It wasn't until the Yellow ARMS ones came out that they finally fixed them proper) I know that I had a hellish experience playing MK with motion controls and games like World of Goo until I got my Joy-cons replaced (and the old ones fixed). I had 4 Joy-cons at the the time and they ALL had disconnection issues to some varying degree (my grey ones were borderline completely unusable in my living room until I got them fixed). Now that I have some new ones (and the old ones fixed), they work like champs!

    Honestly, I was clueless about their name change up until I did a bit more research a few weeks ago when the talks between them and Disney were first announced. Prior to this, I genuinely just thought that they’d finally figured out that it was the 21st century now,and changed their name accordingly!

    20th Century Fox (News Corporation, founded in 1979) spun off into two separate companies in 2013: 21st Century Fox - which consisted primarily of popular media such as TV shows and movies, as well as media outlets - and News Corp - which took on the publishing and broadcasting of assets in Australia.

    Was it something to do with Galaxy 2's Faceship? Anyway, don't know if this was posted before, but this is pretty much how I played the game.

    I could have elaborated, but it looks much funnier that way. It's short, and not that challenging once you get the hang of things (and the game does an excellent job of easing you into things), but the way the art and gameplay come together is so satisfying. Gameplay is in essence a point & click adventure, adding elements of where's waldo, jigsaw puzzles, and those baby toys where you fit blocks of certain shapes in certain holes (you do the opposite). I don't know how long it took me, I'm guessing 3 to 4 hours, and it won't have any replay value. But it's a work of art, and it has been mesmerizing from beginning to end.

    Oddly that was the first way I tried to get into the Odyssey and then I just assumed that was the normal way to enter the ship. I didn't know it was considered "a secret to everybody" kind of thing. Wasn't there something similar you could do in the Super Mario Galaxy games?

    It’s really interesting that you say that it needed more time in the editing suite: it’s actually the earliest a live-action SW film has been prepared prior to release! As for the pacing and plot lines, I agree that it’s a bit frantic at times, but I think the core reason as to why so many feel that it’s a mess in particular is because of one thing that we’ve all come to expect - not just with Star Wars, but films in general these days - that’s almost completely missing here:

    Enjoyed it but it needed more time in the editing suite. The pacing and plot lines were all a bit convoluted. The beauty of the original trilogy was the simple narrative thread, this was a bit all over the place. THAT Leia scene was utterly stupid but otherwise I didn't think there was much else to complain about, for me at least, just the plot was a bit messy. I thought the film got better as it went on. The first half hour or so wasn't good. Characters continue to impress. Especially Rey and Kylo Ren. Lightyears better than anything Rogue One served up.

    I'm a big fan of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy, but one thing I'm not a fan of in them, certainly the final one, is Hans Zimmer attempting to sabotage dialogue and steal the show with his sound track. I love some of the songs in isolation (when running, for example) but during the film's I can find it a bit much, and even in Batman Vs Superman too. So I admire the composing in BOTW for the restraint shown and how, well, delicate it is. The little piano tinkle kicking in is beautiful, and considering how important music has been in the Zelda series for so long, it adds to the whole ripping up the rule book with BOTW in that it does take a back seat and encourages you to enjoy the "sounds of the wild" more. For this game, it's perfectly judged and actually enhances the experience.

    Crystal releasing early next year. A mod may as well just add it to the title of this topic, rather than creating a new one. Happy to see a boxed version getting a release. The trilogy will be complete.

    I thought the music was one of the best aspects of the game. I felt it gelled really well with the rest of the soundtrack, playing Skyrim at the moment and it's quite jarring having this rousing score always on while just walking through empty fields. Both Zelda and Mario seem to have been criticised for their soundtracks by some outlets but to me they have offered some of the best aural experiences of the year, the sound design and music in both games was frequently impressive.

    The Switch will get western support. Some games just won't run but there will be enough that can. The hardware is selling and more importantly software is selling. Developers won't ignore that. Publishers can't just leave money on the table. The demographics are different with the switch. 86% of the Switch’s install base is 18 or older. 69% of the Switch install base falls within the 19-34 age group. 90% of the Switch install base is male That's the demographic with buying power and the demographic which appeals to third party publishers. Now those numbers will change especially after holiday season as switch will be gifted to teenagers and kids but still the numbers will be similar to the xbox/ps4 demographic. Games take time to be produced but I'm expecting 2018 to see western third parties announce plenty of games.

    Doki Doki Literature Club So, I got curious, seeing the Game Grumps play this game, and noticing that it has become popular as of late. Since it's free on Steam, and apparently short, I decided to take a look ... It's a nice and uneventful dating sim. Pretty girls, Ecchi moments, the usual works. There's poetry, too. Happy thoughts. Happy, happy thoughts. Dating sims are not a shame, but just one type of game. I care not how much you jeer, as this makes my fifth this year. (For a Fire Emblem waifu, too, is larger than laifu) I hype them up, all I want is to share. I haven't lost my marbles, I swear.

    So cool to see some of the people involved with this game get so passionate about it. First that Owain/Narcian support from their voice actor, and now Dorcas' artist campaigning for him. Good thing, too, I like his style, and I hope he gets to do more characters. Of course, that image of Dorcas in a modern suit is amazing. EDIT: Holy shit, seeing the comment thread for that tweet, not only do I see he drew Athos for the card game, but he also just drew this... ...Orcas
