  1. My Nintendo ( Club Nintendo Successor )

    Yeah. I'm gonna have to ground you for that.
  2. General Retro Discussion

    I recently looked up what the deal with this game is, and yeah, it's certainly an interesting game, I'll give it that. I'd never want to play it though, third person cover based shooter? Bleh. I watched all the cutscenes though, worth it.

    Geez, and you just immediately threw it on the floor?
  4. Hades (PC, Switch)

    I've not played Bastion, but this game is very fluid and snappy. Utter joy to control. @Hero-of-Time, you nutjob! The bow is one of the better weapons! Specifically, the second aspect. Just stick a boon (like Zeus' or Artemis' ones) on the special and watch that damage rack up! I'm still doing some runs now and again. Attempted a heat level of 10 for the first time, and put Extreme Measures to max.
  5. Outside of some fixed camera angles in some areas, the camera is pretty much free to move anywhere in BK. I don't agree that it's worse then Mario 64 at all. It's not perfect, but what 90's 3D game is in that regard? Easy thing to overlook is that you can hold R to center the camera behind you. Anyway, back on topic. I'm not surprised that Forgotten Land did so well. There are better Kirby games, but that Switch Effect doesn't account for taste.
  6. General Movie Thread

    Yeah, violence is one thing, but if it was a bit, there was absolutely no way they would've allowed him to drop constant F-Bombs afterwards. American broadcasters do not condone live swearing, at all. Apparently, a lot of other actors came up with flimsy excuses afterwards for how they didn't see anything to avoid having to talk to interviewers about it.
  7. I was surprised at how quickly people were knocking out this game's "True Arena", but... EDIT: And that's 100% done. Still have 19,000 coins left over.
  8. Your Gaming Diary 2022

    Coo has the best music and best abilities (Cutter Coo is stupid broken!) in Dream Land 2, and I will not hear otherwise.
  9. You know how Mario Odyssey shifted to have all its moons available at once and once you collected one, you carried on from right there to go get more? You can thank Banjo for that. The only thing I can honestly say has aged (other then graphics, duh) is that the button layout is not ideal for a more modern controller setup. It'll take some getting used to if you don't have an N64 controller, as some abilities are activated by holding Z and then pressing the corresponding C Button. Other then that, it's still among the best of the collection based platformers.
  10. Mario World kinda does it, but it's not a seamless transition like in BK and this game. (Except the Yoshi percussion) I don't remember Chrono Trigger doing this at all though.
  11. If it's any consolation, as soon as I thought to mention that, it got stuck in my head as well. Truly, the double-edged sword of music.
  12. Did somebody say guitars in Kirby games? Yeah, Kirby has a great track record with the electric guitar. Maybe that will dig that earworm out. And if not, there's always Bubble Bobble.
  13. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Sorry, afraid not. Hopefully, I'll be able to resume Smashing next week.
  14. Only speedrunners, you'd be mad to attempt a more casual run of it. Hammer sucks. EDIT: Unless you're playing a game where Dedede is playable, his hammer rocks! Especially when you can throw it away infinitely.
  15. It's such a broken defensive ability! It won't break many records, unfortunately.
  16. Well, some of the most difficult ones to 100% in my opinion are: 64: To be frank, only one bit is difficult, the boss rush. Kirby isn't as flexible in this game and the bosses aren't very fun. Losing patience will get you killed 90% of the time. Canvas Curse/Power Paintbrush: Good luck getting the required medal on Paint Roller, because it's very strict! I've only done it once and it was torture! Great game though. Planet Robobot: This boss rush is actually good, a real test of endurance and skill. It took me a fair few attempts to beat the True Arena in this. Also gives you a mark of shame if you attempt to cheese it with amiibos. Star Allies (Post Update): Trying to beat The Ultimate Choice on the highest difficulty with solo Kirby? Yeah, that's fun! Probably the second hardest Kirby challenge in the series. (After Canvus Curse's Paint Roller) Remember, friends are for wimps! Pity that the base game is a bit mediocre by Kirby standards. It's fine, but still.
  17. Animal Crossing: New Horizons

    Speaking of, did you receive the Warm Painting I sent you?
  18. I almost did on the first post-game challenge. Good ol' Kirby endgame difficulty spike!
  19. Credits have rolled. Still got to reach 100% there. Super massive spoilers ahead!
  20. Yeah, Normal is proper broken against bosses! A lot of them release multiple stars to swallow, crazy damage with some skillful positioning.
  21. I'm on world 4 now, (125 Waddle Dees) and it's just so gosh darn cute! Kirby has a dedicated "Hi" button, and that's very important! The Treasure Road target times are quite strict. Completely optional, but I get some mad Kirby Dream Collection vibes from them.
  22. I wonder if this game has the option to use the original soundtrack? I'd be surprised if it didn't, considering you can revert the game back to the original models and such. Because that's a surefire way to win in terms of soundtrack remasters.
  23. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    Damn it, @Dcubed! Good races tonight. Mount Wario is always a good track to end on.
  24. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    Sorry, @Dufniall joined and we thought it was you. @Ike avoid choosing a track we already raced on that night.
  25. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    Tonight's Mario Kart Session is at 8pm tonight. It's a Player's Choice night, so you're free to choose any track. (Avoid racing on the same track twice, though) @BowserBasher, I'll have to ask you to host again, I might not be able to make it.
