  • “Gender reveal party” is the latest meme that starts off pretty funny but derails really REALLY quickly

    I feel like a boomer for saying this, but seriously has anyone ever heard of “It was funny the first time”

    I would never do a gender reveal party. We never did it for both of our kids and I see it as a self-promoting, attention-craving affair that is reflective of our society. If that makes me a boomer or a crotchety old fart, than that’s fine lol. Seriously, when the doctor asked if we wanted to know the gender, we were like “Yeah, sure.” The second kid, my wife texted me as I was at work and couldn’t take the time off to go to the hospital. I will admit that the story of a dad-to-be getting angry and storming off because there second child was revealed to be a girl. All because he wanted a son so he can play baseball with him. That made me feel better as a person and a father. I was overjoyed to learn our second child would be a girl.
    Honestly, I’m not a big fan of games being shadowdropped. Obviously Nintendo has no choice but to shadowdrop titles, but it kind of makes the titles feel like an afterthought in my mind, and aren’t nearly as hype as they would be if it was in a direct. And don’t even get me started on how awful it would be if a Smash character was shadowdropped

    That would be the worse to have a Smash newcomer shadowdropped. I want to react with the crowd, I don't like to watch a new Smash reveal afterwards.

    As much as I don't like shadowdrops, I've come to expect them from Nintendo now because they've been using them to announce all their first-party games since May, and I doubt we'll get another general Direct anytime soon. That said, I have to agree that my one biggest fear is if the next Smash fighter gets shadowdropped. Hype is a massive part of Smash reveals, and not being able to react with the crowd, especially if Nintendo decides to spoil who the next fighter is in the video title or tweet caption, would take a massive chunk of fans' hype and enjoyment away. I'm hopeful that they'll do like Byleth and schedule a Sakurai Presents for the next fighter before saying who they are, and reveal them there.
    It's dumb how Capcom calls it "Ultra Street Fighter II: The FINAL CHALLENGERS" when the only two new characters are reskins of other characters with tiny alterations

    Like come on, putting characters like Dan, Sakura or even Final Fight characters in Street Fighter II would have been awesome!
    Remember those “Projared clips that haven’t aged well” videos?

    Its a video pointing how something hasn’t aged well that hasn’t aged well
    Kirby is scary
    He can use more than 4 pokemon moves, use PSI, use the Nayru's Love spell, wield the Falchion, move just as fast as Sonic, use abilities from the robot masters, wield the Monado, use the Anatsuken fighting style, withstand poison, enter the Metaverse and use Hero Relics without being turned into a demonic beast

    If there wasn't any reason to be afraid of him before, there is one now
    So I definitely want to beat every route in Fire Emblem Three Houses but the idea of me playing the church of seiros route makes... uncomfortable

    Like I think the Church in the game is very corrupt, and it would probably make me feel off to be fighting on their side. It’s probably because I’m an atheist, but whatever

    Haven't tried the Church route yet myself, but I've put off my Black Eagles play through for months because I think I'd find it hard to support Edelgard after becoming so attached to Dimitri's character (despite some questionable decisions with his arc).

    Don't worry about it. Without going into spoilers, let's just say that there's...new management running it by the end.
    I keep on forgetting the new Xbox is called Series X... It just looks like a forgettable console in general especially with the confusing box templates...
    If Nintendo ever decides to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Zelda the same way they didn’t with Mario, I think they would make two separate collections: one containing Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, and the other containing Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, for about 50 bucks each

    That’s because Nintendo probably made 3D All-Stars the way they did so they could get at least one main Mario game per home Nintendo console on Switch. So they would probably do something similar with Zelda, with Skyward Sword remake acting as the representative for the Wii era
    So the eShop says Nintendo Switch Lite systems need detached Joycons to play Super Mario 3D All-Stars... Does that mean you can’t play with a pro controller or gamecube controller? I l could be wrong about this but... It it would be annoying if it was true

    After checking, it does say in the 'Controllers' section of the table at the bottom of the page that it supports the Switch Pro Controller. It will presumably support the GameCube controller in the same way, though Galaxy's motion controls won't work without any non-motion control functionality (though the page does call the motion controls 'optional'), and I'm guessing they won't replicate Sunshine's analog trigger functionality in the same way as the original.

    Oh, I didn’t even even know there wasn’t a controllers section, thanks
    By complete coincidence, my disc for Super Mario Galaxy stopped working, yet my Super Mario Galaxy 2 is perfectly fine... I’m lucky 2 isn’t the one that still works so I can actually play it...
    Today I saw a video where someone said Dr. Wily should be the next Mega Man rep. That's a fine idea and all
    (but personally I would have preferred Proto Man) However, what's weird here is how the person justified it. They said it's because Dr. Wily would represent the robot masters. by using their weapons... Um you realize Mega Man already uses the robot master weapons? I think they're already represented enough...
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    Dr. Wily would be cool, but personally and honestly I think the next Mega Man rep undoubtedly should be Zero.
    Champion of Hyrule

    I do too, Proto Man was my pick for just Mega Man, not X. Preferably as an echo or semi-echo. Roll could work as an echo too but she’s not really playable in any of the original NES Mega Man games.

    My picks for another Mega Man rep would be Zero, X, or Roll myself. Although my idea for a fighter that could represent the Robot Masters would obviously be a Robot Master themselves, although Dr. Wily would be a hoot to play as.
    World of Light: Has huge worlds with tons of references to gaming and exciting things from travelling the world and facing against the competitors of Street Fighter II to piloting the Great Fox in space to rescuing Peach from Bowser, each with interesting battles that challenge you while also reminding you about games you love, or even introducing you to a new series or two

    Smash Fans: No not enough cutscenes! It's terrible!
    Shroob
    Shroob
    It's not terrible as much as it is kinda.... tedious? Like, I enjoyed it my first time playthrough to the point I 100%'d it, but going back through it to complete my Spirit collection of base form Dracula and Marx... it was a chore.

    As much as I'm not a fan of Subspace, it felt like I was playing a platformer/beat-em up hybrid through the whole thing with some minor puzzle elements. WoL was just >Pick strongest fighter >Pick strongest spirits >FSmash to win unless they're a Legendary-class.

    that’s because you’re playing it wrong. the game explicitly encourages you to use weaker spirits to challenge yourself, and if you do that, finding the right spirits and finding the right set-up to defeat a given opponent is interesting. what you’re doing is ignoring the games advice, choosing broken options, and then going “it’s not fun, it’s too simple and uninteresting” when you’ve gone out of your way to make it that way for yourself.
    Shroob

    I'm pretty sure there's no right or wrong way to play a game to be perfectly blunt, and this has been argued to death countless times in the past.

    I played my original run of World of Light with just autofill, but I ask you, what exactly makes it any different from the Spirit Board? It's a static spirit board with a few boss fights and a cool bonus near the end, but at the end of the day, it's just a Spirit Board. I liked it the first time, but it's just not fun to replay, nor do you really ever 'need' to replay it unless you're a completionist like me who wanted the base form Dracula and Marx spirit.


    I don't even like Brawl and feel like too much effort was put into Subspace, but I'd easily put Subspace over WoL, if only because Subspace felt like something tangible, while WoL is just Fight > Fight > Fight > Fight > Fight ad nauseum until there's a boss.

    4. Sonic 2 covers embarrassing bald spots (Sonic 2)

    2. Sir aren’t these tests kinda easy? (Metal Gear Solid)

    I liked it. (aside from the ultra difficult Super Turbo AI where playing Arcade Mode on the easiest difficulty feels the same as playing it on the highest difficulty - not sure if that was the case in the original release) Then again, I had only ever played Super Street Fighter 2: The New Challengers out of the games in that collection, so everything else was new to me.
    Where was Smash at the Democratic National Convention?
    If Doomguy gets into Smash, what Smash decides to call him will probably be accepted as standard for most gamers.

    Kind of similarly to how most gamers now think of Ridley as human sized
    GamerZardEX
    GamerZardEX
    I agree with RetrogamerMax RetrogamerMax . Smash Olimar is Kirby's height while Canon Olimar is the size of a small coin.

    And where did the name Doomguy even come from?
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    Plus Ganondorf is 3 times bigger than Link and Zelda in the Zelda games. Smash is completely inaccurate about canon sizes as if all the characters in Smash were their canon sizes the games would be broken.

    What I mean is that wether they call him Doomguy or Doomslayer will probably determine what fans call him and think of him. It won’t canonically change his name, I never said that
    Most of the time when people hate on the aesthetics and menu design of Persona 5, it's because they've only seen it through gameplay footage or the Mementos stage. They haven't actually experienced playing a game with it's menu design and layout
    You know what? I really like Super Paper Mario. It has a surprisingly effective story, addicting gameplay, and it does things other Nintendo games, much less Mario games, would even dream of doing

    Nintendo: no. super paper mario bad because it has a too complicated story

    Technically, it's Miyamoto's fault. It's definitely noticeable with Super Mario Galaxy 2 shunting Rosalina to the side in favor of a comic relief purple Luma.
    Mushroomguy12
    Mushroomguy12
    Lubba was actually supposed to have a backstory in Galaxy 2 as well, presumably in the same style as Rosalina's storybook, that would involve him and the cosmic spirit (that blue Rosalina clone that would help you in the final game if you died too much on one level). Of course Mr. Gimmicky "I hate story" Miyamoto killed it.

    Instead of Ice Climbers being the "Black Box" rep, we should have gotten a generic 'Sportsplayer" who represents the old NES Sports titles. They sold very well, and are a big part of Nintendo history. It's a shame they seldom get referenced.
    RetrogamerMax

    I would have preferred Mach Rider as the Black Box rep back in Melee over the Ice Climbers or even Ayumi Tachibana even though she isn't a Black Box rep, she was considered for the Retro slot in Melee.
    The “Guess the Character” we got for ARMS would be cool if they did it again with a Rhythm Heaven rep

    Wario Wario Wario
    My choice would be Rhythm Girl, but I'd be happy with pretty much any Rhythm Heaven rep

    It'd also be a little fun to do with an entire genre or company, but that could end up being a lot more divisive.

    I wouldn't have a problem with them doing this for a Rhythm Heaven rep as I would be down for anyone from that franchise.

    Whenever Nintendo makes an indie presentation, the comments are always filled with people wanting games that are clearly not indie.

    It’s very, very annoying
    I really hate the “Quiet Kid” meme. I think people who struggle with making friends would rather be accepted, as opposed to being told everyone in their school is afraid of them and thinks they’re gonna murder people

    Sure it is just a meme, but it sure doesn’t feel like it’s just a joke
    It sure is funny looking up 'Atlus Games" and seeing Snowboard Kids on the same list as Persona, Shin Megami Tensei and Trauma Center

    I love the Snowboard Kids games as I grew up with them. Such underrated racing games with amazing soundtracks. Clearly some of the N64's best hidden gems.
    So yesterday I made a status update about a weird dream I had involving Shin Megami Tensei... I’m thinking about it now and it’s probably because I watched Did you know gaming’s video on SMT at like 3am last night before went to bed.

    I also found out there’s a SMT spinoff for VIRTUAL BOY, now that’s weird

    I knew of it ages ago. Didn't know that Jack Skelton was meant to be Jack the Ripper, at the time.
    I had a weird dream: Shin Megami Tensei was just as popular as the Wii in America. Basically anyone you ask has played a SMT game in the past. They even had it in retirement homes like Wii Play sometimes is.

    Given the rumors surrounding Jeff Grubb and August 17, I'm pretty sure that'll be the case as well, Monday announcements are usually on really short notice.

    Of course, it's likely that Mario's 35th is such a big deal that he could easily carry an entire presentation by himself, since 3D World port's been rumored for a while.

    People thought the same about Pikmin 3 port and said Paper Mario game, yet here we are.

    Nintendo only having Paper Mario and a Lego set to show for by the time September 13 blows over would be uncharacteristically modest. Remember that Super Mario All-Stars had been rereleased for Mario's 25th as a special limited edition.
    Today I found out there are actually people who say Castlevania shouldn’t have been in Smash because it’s a “dead franchise.”

    I previously thought those people only existed in nightmares
