  1. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    Also, @Kounan, here's your reminder for tonight.
  2. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

    I'm not certain, but it seems like it's not a worldwide release. So some countries don't have it yet. That might be why. If you create a lobby for friends, however, it works.
  3. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    This is important. The new tracks are part of the update, but you have to download the actual pass direct from eShop, even if you have an NSO Expansion Pack. Of course, you don't actually need it to take part, but do it now anyway. So make sure you have both the update and the pass before tonight's session. And speaking of... Tonight 8pm Just as a reminder, avoid choosing tracks that will have already been played during the Player's Choice section. So basically choose anything not from the Pass then. @BowserBasher, due to unforeseen circumstances, I'll have to use the internet connection where I am. It should do the job, as I tested it by racing against random people online, but I'm not totally confident it can hold. So I'm asking you to be host tonight. The room will open up at 7:45 pm. You can join by selecting "Friends and Rivals" and joining Simon. Don't be late, as we'll be starting at 8pm sharp. See ya then!
  4. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

    Yes, I had this issue as well, when I was double checking to make sure it downloaded. Just gonna commandeer your post for the other thread.
  5. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    Before tomorrow, it'll probably be a good idea to provide some kind of method of voice chatting, seeing as the NSO app is spotty at the best of times. Here's a link to a Discord group for N-E members who want to get chatty. I'll add it to the first post as well.
  6. Switch eShop Thread

    Does that mean Bastion doesn't count as an "indie gem" then? Harsh...
  7. No, it's not Moltres time, don't get too excited. But also, GET EXCITED! It's 3 years late, but Pokémon World Championships is finally getting the London event we were promised back when Sword/Shield was released. It'll happen at the ExCeL London, from August 18th to the 21st. The games featured will be Sword/Shield, the real life Trading Card Game, GO, Unite, and Pokkén Tournament DX. There'll also be a temporary Pokémon Center Store opening there from the 17th of August to the 21st.
  8. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    I am. I doubt there'll be an award for completing the single player GP's for these anyway.
  9. @Serebii suspects that GWS was ready for the update three weeks ago, but they held off to make sure the cloning glitches were properly fixed and the implemented block that prevents people from trading cloned Pokémon worked. Considering how incredibly widespread that was when the game came out, I can believe that. If he's right, this probably means that Home support should be coming soon.
  10. The only time a Pokémon remake would look almost exactly the same as the original. HD photographs, baby!
  11. Monster Hunter Rise

    Actually, that beginner equipment has been out for a while already. I don't see it being good enough to get you to HR7. It's more for getting you to high rank.
  12. Sorry, I wasn't clear. The save file gets you the Azure Flute and the event plays out as you expect.
  13. Not too surprising, seeing as Oak's Letter was there in the game. No, it says complete the main missions. Not finished it myself, so I'm not certain what that consists of. But it doesn't sound like needing to complete the Pokédex.
  14. Update for this drops tomorrow. Darkrai's event item, the Member's Card, will be distributed by Mystery Gift from April 1st. Arceus, however, is not gotten in the same way as the DS games. You'll need a save file of Legends: Arceus that has completed the main story.
  15. You see, any other time, and Bad Box Art Mega Man would've been seen as the silly joke that it was meant to be. Poor timing all round.
  16. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    If you want, I can give you a mention on Friday.
  17. Or Charles Martinet. It's gonna be so weird now that Mario has had an established voice for over 25 years. See, as much as I don't care for the casting choice for the Mario movie, there's no denying that it will be far more tonally accurate then the live action one. Whether it's any good is a different matter, but I don't see it flopping as hard. I mean, it's safe to say that at least Bowser will, you know, look like Bowser.
  18. Hasn't Bob Hopkins come out and said that he regrets acting in that movie? Says it all, really.
  19. It didn't start off well, but then that happened and I immediately starting folding into myself out of pure cringe. That's real bad! This is one of two reasons why I can't deal with Persona, despite being an RPG fan. Because of that, you kinda develop a tolerance for this kind of stuff and roll with it. But somewhere, there is a line, and Persona constantly crosses it by contradicting the messages it tries to put forward for cheap fanservice. And it's really blatant. And I just know it would impact my enjoyment. A good comparison is the Persona and Fire Emblem spin off, Tokyo Mirage Sessions, which is not without it's problems, but is so much more restrained, especially the western version. My theory is that Nintendo may have been reining in the fanservice that the Persona influence might have had. Remember, the western version edits some costumes to be less revealing and flat out replaces the typical swimsuit outfits with something far more tasteful and better looking really. Boy, a lot of guys really outed their misogynistic views when they started complaining about that! Meanwhile, I immediately chose that outfit for Tsubasa and Ellie and never looked back! So yeah, I think Atlus really needs a third party to give them a heads up whenever things get a bit too much.
  20. You're thinking of Fight Night Round 2, which did happen. That doesn't look quite so bad, as EA attempted to make Little Mac fit the visual style and it makes sense for him to show up in a boxing game. But NBA Street V3 just clashes horribly with Mario-style characters. They look so ridiculously out of place. Like, if you thought New Donk City in Odyssey was a weird clash, then NBA Street V3 takes the cake! It was definitely a desperation move on Nintendo's part thanks to the GC's poor reception. EA definitely got the better end of that deal, mind. No-one bought a GameCube to play those versions, let's face it. You joke about Smash, but Snake became the landmark moment that showed that third parties were on the table. It helps that Smash was already a massive crossover game in the first place, but Smash Brawl is a good contender for MGS's highest highs. I mean, they used him for the reveal of "Everyone is Here" that Ultimate had. So he did it twice! @Cube, that's a good shout on Mass Effect there. Even I, a person who is completely disinterested in the franchise, knew about that scene. It was everywhere, and doomed Andromeda almost immediately.
  21. I read that description before watching the video, and thought "That can't be official" But yep, there's a Ninty trademark in the bottom right! That's definitely a new one for me!
  22. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Yeah, I double checked, and it did have every stage available. Just got really unlucky, I guess.
  23. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    Ah, I'm glad you mentioned that. I was gonna ask if you would be a secondary host, in case there are more then 12 people or I can't make it. I'll add your Friend Code to the first post.
  24. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Stamina matches tonight at 8pm.
  25. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    Now, depending on how many people are interested, we may have to seperate everyone into 2 groups if there are more then 12 people taking part. So let me know if you're IN! or not by declaring yourself IN! Glen-i (Host) S.C.G Dcubed lostmario BowserBasher Dufniall Kounan RedShell Ike Tentative viceview51, Mokong The Booster Pass drops on Friday 18th March, so despite Thursday being the agreed upon day, the first night will be on that date, and will be a Theme Night that cycles through the 8 new tracks and then 4 other tracks voted on by everyone.
