  1. Mortal Kombat Kollection Online

    I'm well up for a remake of the original games. First of all there's the nostalgia feel. I had MK1 on the SNES, indeed tough as nails but so good. And I really like the old Fatality system over the new one they use.
  2. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Haha epic. And IN!
  3. N-E Cafe Podcast

    Just finished listening to this week's podcast. Another enjoyable one! About the Mass Effect trilogy: Bioware has been teasing on Twitter that something is happening. First with a fragment from ME1 and another with a quote from ME2. So chances are a Trilogy remaster is on the way, hopefully coming to the Switch as well.
  4. Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield (2019, Switch)

    I have finally (FINALLY!) finished the storyline of Pokémon Sword. Beat it with this team (I was expecting a nice shot of my champion team but that never came so I had to do it with the save screen:

    Ah yeah the transition tune. It's a wild guess, but based on the mexican style music I would guess Guacamelee?
  6. Streaming, recording and editing video game footage

    I haven't really edited game footage, but I used OpenShot for a music video and for putting together the N-E Café to go on YouTube. It may not be very extensive compared to the bigger paid programs, but you can easily have different tracks on top of each other to do overlays. It's free and open source, so maybe there are even more functions available as plugins. Haha man, that thing sounds awesome! Is it purely a software hack or is it hardware modified? Would love to see the thing and how it works.

    Wouldn't mind this one. I've started it but haven't pushed on so this would give me an incentive to finish it. It's also an interesting one to talk about as I think it really depends on the alternative quests for bringing the challenge. And it has those animal friends which kind of mixes it up compared to the previous Kirby titles.

    Great question from @WackerJr by the way. Movies based on games have a bad reputation and there are plenty of examples, but somehow I have a weak spot for them. For example I really liked Mortal Kombat, but I think I was about 12 when I last saw it so my opinion may have changed a bit there. Never did see the Mario movie. I did enjoy the few episodes I saw of the anime with the real life intro. I also had a VCR with a cartoon series based on Super Mario Bros 3, where they visit the Giant Kingdom but I don't think it had the real life bit in front. My favourite series is Resident Evil. The first movies are awesome, the later ones are really bad but I still enjoy watching them. If you want some quality RE material, the CGI movies are pretty good. Alone In The Dark is another really bad one. It's the same as Resident Evil in the sense that it has almost nothing to do with the game series, and the movie itself is awful. Great soundtrack though. The first Tomb Raider movie was good, the other ones meh. Haven't watched the reboot yet but that is on my list. Given your love for Doom I was shocked you didn't mention that one! I never saw it either though. Finally Ready Player One is a weird one. I loved the book, but it differentiates quite a lot from the movie. It's much more referencing 80s pop culture, video games and music while the movie is more in line with current day. Watching it I had quite high expectations, but I also thought it wasn't that great. But the book is well recommended. Edit: Watching on wikipedia there is quite a list I haven't seen yet. I have some catching up to do!
  9. Quoting @Sméagol from the SSBU Online Thread: I've been wanting to open up a topic about this earlier, but I guess this is a good moment to do so. Anyway currently my set-up is a desktop PC with: Intel Core i5 16GB RAM NVIDIA GTX1080Ti An SSD for speed, and a traditional hard drive to save video files to An AverMedia Live Gamer HD C985 capture card It has plenty of power to stream PC games to Twitch and Mixer without the need of a separate dedicated streaming PC. I use OBS Studio for the capture/streaming part. It's a free piece of software but works well. I have to look into it a bit more but I believe you can even use it to do overlays etc. But since I'm not doing any webcamming along the way I haven't really used that feature. To be honest I haven't even talked during a stream yet, but maybe I will start doing that in the future. Don't feel the need to show my face alongside it though. :P With the AverMedia that I recently got (pretty cheap secondhand) I can now also capture or stream Switch games (or any other device that has HDMI). I did a few captures already and yesterday I streamed our Smash session. For streaming again I use OBS, and for capturing I use AverMedia's own software. The limitation to my capture card is that it is capped at either Full HD at 30 frames or 720p at 60 frames. But I didn't want to invest in a more expensive card yet as I don't know if I want to do a lot with streaming/capturing. So for testing the waters it is actually working great. Plus it comes with a big red button that you can smack to start streaming. Not that useful, but satisfying to use haha. The other limitation is that everything is in my desktop PC (the capture card is an internal one as well), so I cannot capture my casual couch games. I have to crawl behind my PC monitor to get it all going. With a laptop+external capture card I would be a lot more flexible. But I'm a traditional guy and I like my PC's big, bulky and upgradeable. :P Curious to hear other people's setup, and if there are streamers among us. I'm just going to quote @LazyBoyas I know he recently got a capture card, and @GenericApersonbecause I've seen his videos of Metroid Prime 2 and I'm curious how he captures and edits his videos. Finally: Like, comment and subscribe!
  10. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    That was my last one, thanks for the games (and @Sméagolfor watching)! Some stupid moments again, trying to get the Smash Ball while @RedShellwas charging the Super Scope was my favourite.

    For the voyeurs:
  12. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Just received the weekly Nintendo releases press release mail, and the DLC character is not mentioned, which they usually do if there is a new one available. So either they will send out a separate release, or he won't be available yet today.
  13. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    That lesson on binary handcounting though...

    I'm the same as that I don't mind a bit of storytelling. There are quite a few cutscenes but mostly they are presented well. It is a pretty dark and heavy story though, which I really wasn't expecting based on the colourful screenshots. Maybe that's a bit too much for some. But since the platforming is pretty straightforward, I don't mind the cutscene breaks.
