    They cancelled the new Kirby game that was coming out this year though

    I expect a very down to earth and reasonable show that isn’t teaming and swarming with magic robots.

  4. Day 11 - Favourite Town/Village Yeah, I'm predictable as fuck; it's Clock Town from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask More fabulous than a box of Tingles
  5. Awesome! Though you've uploaded one day early! (Don't worry, I'm already done with my course, so I won't be nicking any ideas I'll play it tomorrow along with everyone else's then though) In the mean time... why not try out my other awesome courses I've made recently! Really! We have a whole other thread for them! (And it's disgusting that none of you have played Beware The Curse Of Boo yet! Seriously! Come on guys! It's even @Glen-i Approved! )

    To be honest. As far as game news goes? There really isn't a whole lot happening in general outside of the PS5/Series X news cycle (and there's basically fucking nothing to talk about as far as Nintendo goes at the moment). I've tried making more general interest topics surrounding the industry (I'd love to talk a bit about the crazy sexual harassment cases around the game industry that have been crawling out of the woodwork recently!); but nobody ever seems to really bite... The politics & power dynamics side of the games industry is super interesting, but most people here don't seem to care for it sadly...

  8. Day 10: Favourite End Credits Nothing tops The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for me here... Epic and absolutely beautiful in the way that best encompasses what Zelda is and should be all about!
  9. Nintendo Treehouse Live: 10th July 2020

    One step closer to an Adventure of Link sequel by Wayforward!
  10. Well that came out of absolutely nowhere! Glad to hear that its fully backwards compatible with PS4! The raytracing stuff is all gravy really, but the BC is the real kicker! 3D audio (presumably Dolby Atmos) is also really cool and I'm glad that its apparantly a big focus with the PS5! SSD storage is also a big surprise; that's surely gonna cost a fortune!? Now there's officially no reason to buy a PS4!
  11. GODDAMMIT!!! You beat me to it!! This is definitely my choice as well. WHAT THE HELL INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS!? SERIOUSLY! WHAT THE HELL!?!?
  12. https://game.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/interview/1262702.html Looks like it'll cost around 12,800 yen, includes 36(!) SEGA arcade games from various arcade platforms and is due for release at end of 2020... IT HAS FUCKING GOLDEN AXE: REVENGE OF DEATH ADDER!!!!!!!!! (Cue internal screaming at it coming to this and not SEGA AGES Switch)
  13. SEGA Astrocity Mini

    No M2? Hype deflated
  14. Day 8: Best Musical Moment My vote goes to the moment where you obtain the Fully Powered Suit in Metroid Zero Mission. The Hunted becomes The Hunter That moment when you finally get your Fully Powered Suit; after being relentlessly hunted by the Space Pirates in your PJs... and then THAT music kicks in as you proceed to completely decimate the Space Pirate ship in retaliation! Fucking Theraputic! All of a sudden it grants a whole new level of understanding behind the Space Pirate’s fear of Samus in the Metroid Prime games!
  15. Day 7: Favourite Ranged Combat It’s gotta be Resident Evil 4... but particularly, Resident Evil 4 Headshot Edition Wii Edition. An Accurate depiction of this game No game has more satisfying, compelling or FUN ranged combat! And I will fight you on this! And no third person shooter has such fantastic level & enemy design and pacing. Just absolutely masterful execution all around (that is only elevated even further by the amazing Wii Remote controls!)
  16. RE4’s opening is a great shout and I’m shocked that nobody else mentioned it!
  17. Super Monkey Ball is the last game I would ever describe as chill; but ok!
  18. Day 6: Most Relaxing Navigation It's gotta be Birdman from Pilotwings 64... Pure Tranquility Wind Waker's sailing is a close second, but nothing quite nails the feeling of pure tranquility like flying over Little States as the Birdman
  19. While I'm happy to be the winner, I don't really want to do two themes in a row... feels a bit lame... So I am officially delegating this month's theme to @Glen-i. Now that he's back with us, it seems fair to give him another chance to come up with a theme I reckon.

    I've not bought from them before; but if you're interested in an IPS modded GBA (which you should be!), you want to make sure that you're getting an IPS screen from Funnyplaying (they're the ones making the new IPS screen mod). I actually bought my IPS GBA pre-modded directly from them; but sadly it seems that they're not currently selling pre-modded units for whatever reason... There's plenty of places where you can buy pre-modded GBAs though.

    As a GDC video aimed at developers? It's not even particularily detailed. If I were a developer, I'd want more concrete details than what they showed anyway. It didn't work on either front. But that's really water under the bridge now anyway. Their proper blowout video was pretty solid (and they were smart not to talk about pricing just yet... because that's gonna be a huge body blow to their audience when it does eventually come out). Right now, Sony and MS are playing a game of chicken with their price announcements. Neither one wants to go first because they both know that the cost of their premium consoles will be coming at a premium to match... I think that Microsoft will ultimately go first though. They will inevitably have the advantage on that front with Lockhart and they know it (and will be leaving Sony caught in the middle in terms of both price and performance).

    Likewise. I'm pretty sure that the Pocket isn't coming out this year anymore though...

    So it seems that the new run of the Analogue NT Mini (The NT Mini Noir) is actually not just a rebadged version of the previous model, but is actually a substantial upgrade over the original... There's also a new option in the menu that supports the Analogue DAC... which hints at them planning a cost-reduced version that is more along the lines of the Super NT and the Mega SG! Let's hope they do, because $499.99 for an Analogue NES is outrageous, no matter how fancy the casing and Analog RGB output features are. Gimme a simplified HDMI-only model like the Super NT and you have my money Analogue!
  24. It's available on Switch's NSO SNES Selection RIGHT NOW! Go re-live your Xmas 93 memories you fool!
