  1. Pokémon Direct - June 5th: 2pm

    Not to mention ALttP, OoT, Wind Waker, and Twilight Princess all followed the same formula of get 3 things > get Master Sword > get more things. They are just dressed differently. A lot of themes are reused, Time travel is used in OoT and MM and OoA. "Dimension hopping" with ALttP and ALBW. Even BoTW attributes a lot from the original game.
  2. The Dragon Shield is really broken that early in the game, you won't need to upgrade for a while with those. They are really helpful for fighting Murdaw though.
  3. Google Stadia

    Google's cloud network being down the other day doesn't exactly inspire confidence. To be fair it's pretty rare to go down, but still.
  4. Pokémon Direct - June 5th: 2pm

    Oh, so Dynamax changes the moves you can use as seen here: It sounds like z-moves won't be returning as this sounds like the same concept expect can be used for 3 turns and doesn't restrict your options.
  5. Pokémon Direct - June 5th: 2pm

    Hate how they keep adding "one per battle" mechanics but the raid battles seem good. Game is looking really good though, looked a bit Pokémon of the Wild-ish.
  6. Pokémon Direct - June 5th: 2pm

    Wooloo is my new favourite.
  7. Aw, was hoping for Soleil. Guess I'll just dig up my cart. Why bother with Columns when you have Tetris? Happy about Monster World IV, been wanting to play that one. I like that they just didn't stick to the usual suspects and got some fairly out there games on there. The case is cool as well: https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B07S9QPK88/
  8. The correct choice was made.
  9. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    So they made Pichu even worse in stamina battles?
  10. And that's not even the half of it.
  11. Ghostbusters

    The Wii/PS2 versions were cellshaded/cartoony. The other versions where more "realistic".
  12. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Correct.
  13. Interesting... Does this mean we'll get faster releases and more titles available to stream? *Searches FUNImation Now for One Piece*. Nope. Manga UK used to get a lot of their masters from Madman (Australian distributors) so interesting if that changes. Worryingly though, apparently the FUNImation release of Dragon Ball Super: Broly has a green tint or something which the Manga UK version doesn't, hopefully we don't start getting these kinds of issues.
  14. Marvel's Phase Three

    Finally saw Endgame yesterday, I have a question about something I seem to have missed.
  15. Pokémon Direct - June 5th: 2pm

    Nintendo UK tweet:
  16. If I remember right, you need 10 iron swords to complete the chapter and for a certain period you can buy them on the cheap so it might be worth buying them and hanging onto them. Saves grinding monster drops for them. Although you might prefer the grinding.
  17. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Ah, yeah, that really sucked, it was a really good match. I couldn't do anything even after getting hit by the explosion until it was too late. Makes me not want to use the air dodges but in the heat of the moment I kinda forget. I did under-estimate how big the blast radius was going to be though, I should've aimed for the ledge, didn't think my controls would still be locked after getting hit. I do seem to have The Knack™ of falling off the stage and not being able to recover though.
  18. Nintendo Switch Online: NES

    Zelda II does not deserve the title of black sheep, really good, if hard as nails, game. Mario 2 does a bit since it was a reskin of another game.
  19. What Have You Bought?

    Some recent and not-so-recent pickups. Fire Emblem Premium Arrange and 2 Fire Emblem Extra Drama CDs. Fire Emblem If (Fates) artbook and NES Encyclopedia. Dragon Quest X All-in-One package for PC and Ys Memories of Celceta. My Vita is becoming more redundant as it was mainly a Falcom machine. Dragonball Super: Broly steelbook.
  20. Wario Ware: Twisted Metroid: Zero Mission Fire Emblem (Blazing Blade) Mother 3 MegaMan Zero List might not be final.
  21. General Retro Discussion

    I've seen preowned copies of games that have just been released that week where the boxes are in terrible condition and/or the manual is missing in the past.
  22. Amazon Preorders

    I've been trying to buy less from Amazon so this just further makes me want to buy elsewhere. I don't buy games from them unless there's a good deal, they tend to ship late and have sent the wrong item in the past. They seemed to have a lot of issues getting Switch games late. I hope Amazon Japan don't also adopt this though as I use them for imports.
  23. Amazon Preorders

    Is that just for video games or does it spply to everything?
  24. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    I''ll play if I don't fall asleep before then.
  25. Happy Console Gamer also had it in his top ten Mega Drive games video he released recently. Reading the thread shows me how much of the story I either didn't pick up on or forgot.
