  1. Live A Live (22nd July 2022)

    Got this pre-ordered. Legit more excited for this then Xenoblade and Pokémon! Team Asano's track record so far is just that good!
  2. Fire Emblem: Three Houses (26th July 2019)

    If it's anything like Shadows of Valentia, no penalty. But you only have a limited amount of uses per mission.
  3. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    Player's Choice tonight at 8pm.
  4. Your Gaming Diary 2022

    I've got a few games I need to add to my list, but it's almost midnight, and most of you already know what I think of them. So I'll just say that I completely spaced on Kirby and the Forgotten Land, a game that while absolutely solid, isn't even close to the best Kirby game ever like a lot of people seem to think. It is good, though. There's also Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge, which is the best TMNT game ever. Hell, it's a serious contender for best game of 2022! I'm not big on beat 'em ups, but this one is real special!
  5. I Was Saying Boo-ris!

    I know this isn't exactly the most appropriate bump, but I can't find a better thread and I don't want to commit to a new thread in case this comes to nothing. And with this Prime Minister, that's an annoying possibility. But I'm sure most of you have seen something of this fallout over the Pincher controversy. The phrase "Rats fleeing a sinking ship" comes to mind. Now, I might be jinxing it, but this might finally be the thing that finally sets off the end of Bo Job. But I'm going full on Emperor Palpatine and hoping that he calls a snap election in a desperate attempt to cling on and bring the whole disgusting party with him. Do it!
  6. I Was Saying Boo-ris!

    Honestly, given the other possibilities? It genuinely could be worse. Could also be a million times better, but still.
  7. Fire Emblem: Three Houses (26th July 2019)

    How do you mess up naming the coolest Donkey Kong game when the actual answer is so obvious!? After the past couple of days, I'm starting to think the Snowmads were the good guys in this game.
  8. 2008 was definitely long after the voice acting honeymoon period ended. To this day, I'm legit surprised that Ash has only ever appeared in 2 Pokémon games. It's surprising how separated the anime and games are.
  9. Well, that's the thing, Nintendo owned the majority of Pokémon back then, they'd totally use the songs if they could. Key word there being "could". Pokémon Puzzle League is on a massive N64 cartridge, the biggest one available, if I'm remembering right. But that was still quite small compared to the discs that you'd see on PlayStation. Almost all that space is used on the couple of FMV's and voice clips. The actual soundtrack suffered as a result, giving the game those super budget MIDI tracks. It was almost certainly a mix of Pokémon suddenly exploding in popularity (PPL is a reskin of Panel De Pon 64, after all) and trying to capitalise on the wow factor of voice acting in games. It didn't matter how repetitive it was, any voice acting was basically a huge benefit to a game in the 90's.
  10. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    OK, that was way too close on Dr. Mario VS Terry!
  11. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Oh wow! That Dedede finish was amazing!
  12. Elden Ring (25th February 2022)

    Actually, it's not certain whether that's the case. Like, it's still doing crazy good, but not quite there... Yet.
  13. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Stock matches tonight at 8pm.
  14. Ah, but you're not done yet. The proper final boss can only be fought on V. Hard or S. Hard. It's bloody impossible!
  15. Ghost of Tsushima (PS4/PS5)

    I got real confused when I saw the notification that I was mentioned in a thread I've never looked in before!
  16. Well, they said it was coming in waves, so I expect more to come up in the future. I'll keep an eye out on Serebii's site.
  17. Welp, that's me going from interested with Shining Force CD to wanting it with double Lunar.
  18. As if they were going to end on a random drop of Pokémon Puzzle League. Speaking of, I've mentioned before how dreadful I am at these kind of puzzle games? Well, here's proof. Yes, I lost to Gary, the first Gary, on Easy. I owned the original game on the N64!
  19. Spectator Badges are now available for purchase. They're £10 for each person. If you're interested, buy it before it's too late! https://www.pokemon.com/uk/play-pokemon/worlds/2022/registration/ I already got mine. EDIT: Oh right, I should give a shout to @Aperson, seeing as they've shown interest.
  20. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    A couple from me. BTW, @Dcubed's so called amazing shot on Choco Mountain didn't take. Afraid lag was to blame. You got my shield shell instead.
  21. Discord. @nekunando frequents there as well. I see @markderoos and @Dufniall there more often then here as well.
  22. Nintendo films

    If a miracle happens and they ever give the 3D action game style of Other M another chance, (Because there is a solid base there) I can guarantee the title and plot will have nothing to do with Other M. Metroid isn't allowed to try plot anymore.
  23. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    Player's Choice tonight at 8pm.
  24. Hah! What a couple of nerds! What next? Talking about how to make the best Crit build? I do mostly use Discord for online gaming shenanigans. The chatroom nature is fine for that kind of thing, but actual proper discussion about news and such just tends to get buried if it gets too active. Also impossible to archive stuff there, so to me at least, it's no replacement for a forum.
  25. Pretty damn close, you should give the game a go. It's solid.
