  1. Yakuza Kiwami 2 (28th August 2018)

    Oh nice! I often see 2 regarded as the best in the series, so it’s great this’ll be making the jump overseas too. Now I just need them to make a Kiwami 3 (I started playing at Yakuza 4) and I’ll have played all of the mainline games.
  2. {{{HD Rumble}}}

    Looks like there's a great use of HD rumble in the new Kirby game: And obviously the way Labo is going to utilise it looks awesome as well. Great stuff.
  3. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe League 2018

    Oooh! IN! Red Yoshi please!
  4. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe League 2018

    Oh man. The way you sloooowly roll over the ramp afterwards is comedy gold! “stilllaughingaboutit.gif” Yeah, that was a bit mean. But let’s just call it retaliation for the completely unnecessary Super Horn you got me with.
  5. Sorry to go triple post-tastic but I just got to say that this game is getting better and better all the time. The amount of content updates and gameplay improvements that the developers keep on releasing for it is amazing. It’s actually difficult to keep up with all the different events! Right now there’s Super Mario themed items to collect, plus the first fishing tournament got underway today too! Pretty much all of the major issues regarding the interface/mechanics have been sorted, and it all runs perfectly now. If there are any Animal Crossing fans out there that haven’t checked it out yet, give it a go! Likwise, those that might have stopped playing, it’s definitely worth another look in its current form. The game has not only improved immensely since launch, it’s also getting more and more of the mainline AC stuff added to it over time.
  6. Nintendo Labo (april 27th 2018)

    Daaaaaaamn! Labo is going to be huge I reckon. I mean the standard stuff looks really fun anyway, but the scope for customisation and of course experimentation seems on another level! Was not expecting it to be as deep as this, that’s for sure.
  7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe League 2018

    Does what? Seriously though, which particular incident are you referring to? There was quite a lot of evil stuff going on tonight!
  8. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe League 2018

    Yep... highlights should be pretty spectacular. “Hooray!”
  9. Nintendo Switch: One Year Later

    Probably. Either way, if you go and play Smash Bros. online on Wii U or 3DS right now, chances of it being an unplayable mess are somewhere between slim and none.
  10. Nintendo Switch: One Year Later

    Yeah, I think this is a common belief due to both Brawl and Smash 4’s online performance being pretty flaky at launch, but as anyone who stuck with the games will know, they improved and stabilised over time. Especially Smash 4, which considering the insane amount of stuff going on in that game runs incredibly well online.
  11. Yeah, although it would also be funny if they instead punished bad timing by having it do no damage at all.
  12. Not enough people in crazy fantasy land for my liking let's fix that... 1. Waluigi Should've been in Smash from Melee, it's definitely time for him to be playable now. Another appearance as an assist trophy just ain't gonna cut it, I want to experience true Mario bros. vs Wario bros. Smash battles! 2. Tingle The perfect character to join the playable Smash roster. Why? Because pretty much everyone hates him! The cool people (like myself ) who can appreciate the awesomeness of Tingle will get to play as a character they love, and the haters will get to enjoy beating him up! It's win-win. 3. Birdo See above. 4. Drake Redcrest This was going to be Captain Rainbow, but seeing as his game never made it out of Japan I decided to go with another Skip Ltd. creation. Obviously Chibi-Robo himself should be the most likely candidate but he would look seriously weird scaled up to match the other characters. Probably not as weird as Bayonetta looked after they messed with her proportions, but not far off. 5. Judd The inklings are obviously in, so might as well add some more Splatoon goodness in the form of Judd the cat. His flag move is just crying out to be a side smash attack, and if Duck Hunt Duo are still in the game it's only right that we get a feline rival for them. 6. Jimmy T. Definitely time for some more substantial WarioWare representation in Smash, and I think Jimmy would be a great choice. He could keep stuff inside his afro (a la Villager's pocket) and the opportunity for amusing taunts is right there too. "Aww, yeah!!" 7. 9-Volt Another WarioWare character you say? Hey, if Fire Emblem can get a million characters in Smash, it's only fair we see some more from other Nintendo franchises as well. 9-Volt has so much potential as a Smash fighter, they'd basically be able to make use of the entire retro library for his move set! 8. Karate Joe After more from WarioWare we're going to need something from its spiritual successor too, right? Karate Joe was actually my vote on the Smash ballot, and I still reckon he would make for a great newcomer. Not only does his role in Rhythm Tengoku lend itself perfectly to Smash, for the Final Smash they could use the Karate Man mini-game, just replace the key beat targets with opponents. 9. Ulala Moving on from Nintendo stuff but sticking with the rhythm genre, another much wanted addition for me would be Space Channel 5's Ulala. Again there's just loads of potential for cool moves, not to mention the sheer excellence it would bring to the soundtrack! 10. Hatsune Miku (chibi-version) OK, this one is especially out there seeing as it's not really a video game character, but anything is possible in crazy fantasy land! Would have to be the cute version of Miku from the Project Mirai games though, much better fit for Smash. 11. Goemon Were it not for the fact Konami completely abandoned the amazing Mystical Ninja franchise and relegated Goemon and Co. to bloody Pachinko machines in Japan this could and should've happened already. As it stands Goemon is no doubt the least likely character on my entire list, if you can believe that. He would've been fantastic in Smash though, and imagine using Impact for a Final Smash! 12. Kazuma Kiryu And last but not least, another super impossible "prediction" (lol) in the form of Kiryu from the Yakuza series. With those games finally starting to get more popular in the west, and with Nintendo fans having been introduced to the character via Project X Zone 2, Kiryu could've been a great addition to Smash as one of the more "realistic" fighters. An insane amount of moves to bring over from Yakuza as well, including the Heat system... would've been sweet. So they be my choices, I look forward to achieving last place in this prediction competition. But not as much as I look forward to finally playing Super Smash Bros. on Switch!!
  13. Splatoon 2

    The Shifty Station stage for this Splatfest is genius! They should totally add it to the standard stage rotation. Could even make an entirely new mode based around it actually. For those that haven’t seen it, it basically consists of 3 clear containers placed above the stage, which over the course of a match drop into place (you get an onscreen warning just before each drop) sealing off the area that they fall on. Any players/ink in those locations get locked out of the rest of the stage! Great fun.
  14. Splatoon 2

    If you go to the game page for standalone Splatoon 2 and scroll down, it should appear there.
