  1. Reggie Is Retiring

    I used to love him, but during the Wii U years he made an ass of himself. Can't say I'll miss him.
  2. I was hyped when I saw the anime-style intro. But frankly, I find the in-game visuals to be really off-putting. It looks plasticky and cheap. Seems like a good way to experience a good old game.
  3. Astral Chain -- August 30th 2019

    I'm intrigued. Although gameplay seems somewhat Bayonetta-ish. No bad thing, I just wonder if this will cannibalize Bayonetta sales... or vice versa.
  4. Nintendo Direct 13/02 10pm (UK time)

    I'm more hoping to see Wave Race, 1080 Snowboarding or Excitebike. Getting a modern online sequel to any of those would be brilliant. In fact, I've been speculating that Ubi might've reworked their canned Steep port into specifically a new 1080.
  5. Metroid Prime 4 (Switch)

    Yeah, my intention wasn't to start a debate on drought or nought (lol), but express my curiosity of just how much of a train wreck the canceled MP4 version must've been.
  6. Metroid Prime 4 (Switch)

    Well, first off, my point wasn't "ermargerd Nintendo aren't making games", but more out of curiosity over how Nintendo could decide to scrap everything instead of releasing it as a stop-gap measure. And second, I do think there's a drought. Ultimate and Let's Go came out in December, Yoshi comes out in March. That's four months of bloody nothing. And December was the only month last year when Nintendo brought the goods. Very few of the titles you mentioned hold a candle to what's coming for other systems. We can of course hope that Nintendo make a new Direct next week where they announce two or three new AAA-quality titles for this year, but I doubt it.
  7. Metroid Prime 4 (Switch)

    I'm quite curious. I wonder how terrible the game must be if Nintendo decide to pull the plug on what would've been the big game of 2019. Heck, as far as we know, it was the only game to look forward to this year. IMO, if the game was just to be mediocre, they could've rebranded it from Metroid Prime 4 to some separate Metroid spinoff. Considering the Switch's ongoing software drought, a mediocre AAA exclusive is better than no AAA exclusive.
  8. Nintendo Switch Online: NES

    No, not at all. From a playability perspective, Wave Race 64 is by far superior. And I maintain my previous point: Blue Storm has only ever so slightly more content.
  9. What Have You Bought?

    You should check it. It seems like they have different stuff in different countries. That T-shirt isn't available in the US, but in the US you can buy N64 hoodies.
  10. Nintendo Switch Online: NES

    As much as I love all of the games mentioned, I don't think Wave Race: Blue Storm would come out very well. Even for the time when it was released, it was short on content, lacking a proper career mode and featuring only a smidge more characters and tracks than the N64 game. Plus it had inferior controls when compared to its predecessor.
  11. What Have You Bought?

    H&M strangely have a whole bunch of N64 garments. So I bought this cool t-shirt. (Note: not me in the picture)
  12. Marvel's Phase Three

    Considering that cat got so much time in the trailer, I wouldn't be surprised if it'd turn out he's the villain in disguise. Is there any in-universe reason that he can't actually be Loke?
  13. Nintendo Switch Online: NES

    Wow. I really hope Nintendo get over this NES-only stage and that we won't have to wait for years get N64 stuff. Personally, I find it bollocks that Nintendo seem completely unwilling to provide ANYTHING for us who grew up in that era. No N64 Classic, no N64 NOS games and over the past decade we've only seen THREE remakes, all of which were for portable systems. Unfortunately I feel many higher ups at Nintendo share the same mentality that doomed the Wii U. The mentality that announcing Cranky Kong was somehow on par with a new Uncharted.
  14. Doom

    I just got this game and I have to say that this is a brilliant port. The game's pace isn't at all what I expected. I thought this was supposed to be a super-quick old-school shooter, but I actually found it most playable with a more reserved pace.
  15. Marvel's Phase Three

    The trailer really got me hyped. Can't wait for this one. Only thing that has me worried is that IMO, Infinity War had a somewhat inconsistent depiction of the characters and their powers. I mean, the Hulk, whose whole schtick is that he's insanely strong, got his ass kicked by Thanos. To the point where he doesn't want to appear for the rest of the movie. Yet later in the movie, we see Captain America stop Thanos' punch no problem at all. Vision is supposedly this beyond-belief powerful being which was designed to single-handedly take out all of the Avengers. Yet he loses ONE of his gajilion abilities and then gets his ass whooped by some goon. Said goon then gets pwned by Black Widow, a character who, well trained and quite intelligent, has no actual powers. And while the Guardians of the Galaxy good up and have funny lines in their movies, in IW their banter with the rest of the Avengers make them look like litteral idiots. Also, I personally found the new Iron Man suit to be stupid. Seriously, that thing can transform into absolutely anything with no rhyme or reason. I really hope they get Endgame right, because it at least seems it'll be the last movie featuring the characters which have been the pillars of the MCU thus far.
