  1. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    I just feel so drawn to Kamikazee. It's too comedic!
  2. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    These menus are bloody hilarious! I put myself to sleep with Hocus Pocus and no-one noticed because a final smash happened!
  3. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    That perfect Metal Slash coincidence! Too funny!
  4. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Right, I'll go open a room.
  5. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    I'm trying to kill a Liquid Metal Kirby and it's just as frustrating as it is in Dragon Quest. You fancy some impromptu matches right now?
  6. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Jammy goit alert! It's hilarious, in a truly beautiful way!
  7. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Patch notes. A lot of characters are less vulnerable when waking up. (Gee, I wonder why?) Of note is Mewtwo getting a lot of buffs to it's attacks, either in speed or power, its also got a smaller hitbox on its tail. Isabelle probably got the best buffs though. Her side dodges now travel further and a lot of her moves are a bit faster now. Pit, Dark Pit, Charizard, Ridley and Lucas (Yay!) also did well. However, Ivysaur got hit hard with the nerf hammer this time. (Boo!) Joker, on the other hand, has one interesting nerf. When Arsene is summoned, you won't be able to reflect projectiles that do more than 50% damage. It's a standard thing with reflecting moves, but I didn't realise that Joker didn't follow that rule.
  8. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Gotta go with VIII. Bandanas are cool. (Ask Waddle Dee) Personally gonna go with the Terry-Style colour.
  9. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    A little disappointed about that, but Wagon Wheel's March got in, which is the best DQ world map theme after Adventure. So I'm OK with it. I can't believe that's an actual spell you can use! Someone is going to get Jammy Thwacked at like, 25% damage, and it'll be the funniest thing ever. It's so perfectly Dragon Quest! Hocus Pocus is going to be a comedy goldmine as well. I never actually use it in the games, but I'll use it all the time in Smash. I really wanna have a match where everyone is Hero and the only B move they're allowed to use is Command Selection, with no cancelling allowed. Hero's totally gonna be a character I can't play seriously with, like Wario.
  10. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Wah wah wahhhhhhh. Just watched it. Yeah, Hero is going to be a constant source of hilarity with his random commands. I love it! Random critical hits on Smash attacks as well? Lovely! The sheer arsenal he has is going to cause some insane matches. Roll on tomorrow! Well, more like Thursday for me. I'm not sure I like the change to the FS Meter. It's just going to encourage camping whenever someone gets it. Ones that require you to get up close and personal are going to be even harder to hit with the added time pressure.
  11. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    I'm totes ready for Smash adventures at 2pm! Man, I hope that above song doesn't make up half of the Dragon Quest music selection. That'd be a crying shame. I'm hoping the normal battle theme from DQ 5 gets in, that's my favourite. I'm sure @Ike must have a few songs he's hoping makes the list.
  12. The Jimquisition Thread

    Anyone who's seen the latest news about GTA 5 knew this one was coming a mile off.
  13. Fire Emblem: Three Houses (26th July 2019)

    I agree with this. There's a really good reason Awakening made Fire Emblem that much more relevant as a series.
  14. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Lines up with how far apart Joker's segment in that direct and his release was. So I'm not too surprised.
  15. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    22 minutes feels like a lot more than usual for one character. I wouldn't be surprised if there was a little bonus considering the update that'll come with him.
  16. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 ( Switch Exclusive )

    Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order
  17. Fire Emblem: Three Houses (26th July 2019)

    Do I really need to remind people of a certain Wyvern Rider from Fire Emblem Fates? For once, I don't think Koei Tecmo is to blame for that.
  18. Fire Emblem: Three Houses (26th July 2019)

    Advance Wars really does have the dodgiest tone for the kind of game it is. I can't find a nicer quality image of that, but it gets the point across.
  19. @Dcubed has a real talent for making the most ridiculous puzzles with Mario Maker. They can literally change how you view Mario Maker mechanics. Unfortunately, I have to test them, and they infuriate me to no end, because he sits there, laughing at me, claiming "It's simple! How are you not getting it!? It's not simple! Your level is nuts!
  20. I kinda liked that the weapons were quite limited in how they could be upgraded. Celica and Alm's special weapons are so ridiculously busted though, so I'm glad I saved some gold coins for those. I kinda found that the summoners were more of a help than a hindrance, really. Didn't really go out of my way to grind as often once they started showing up. But I do agree that the DLC in this game was particularly heinous. Locking a whole higher tier of class upgrades behind DLC is totally not cool. I never did the post-game dungeon because of that, because it was way too hard, even with my maxed out characters. And I'm talking properly maxed out, reached the level cap of every class before making the upgrade. It's a blemish on an otherwise enjoyable FE game.
  21. Fire Emblem: Three Houses (26th July 2019)

    So I've done three of these missions now and I have a question. Why does half of this game suddenly consist of Football Manager?
  22. Fire Emblem: Three Houses (26th July 2019)

    Nintendo have confirmed that the voice actor for Male Byleth will be replaced in Fire Emblem: Three Houses via an upcoming patch. This happened in Fire Emblem Heroes as well, but it's good to see Nintendo reacting so quickly.
  23. Nominations are now closed. We have 20 games from the longest list of nominations we've had so far. A testament to the amazing 3DS library really. All of these games got at least 2 nominations. Voting must be done via Private Messages sent to me. This will help to prevent any possible tactical voting. You must choose 3 games and order them from your favourite to least favourite. It'd be great if you could explain why you chose a game in the PM. I can then use these in the article that will go up on the N-Europe front page. I will abstain from these votes and act as a tiebreaker. If two games tie, I'll decide which game comes out on top. Voting closes on the 3rd of August.
  24. N-Europe Mario Kart League 2019

    I thought I got that moment @RedShell was talking about earlier, but I guess I was too appalled to remember to capture it. So, you get away with it this time, I suppose, you jammy goit.
  25. N-Europe Mario Kart League 2019
