    I beat Luigi's Mansion in one sitting the other weekend. Does anyone know why Boolossus is borderline impossible on the last few Boos? I don't seem to get what the trick is, and I only got gold on him last year through trial and error and a heavy use of save states.

    My first lesson in how delays don't always mean the game turns out fine was Mass Effect 3. It was originally supposed to come out Holiday 2011 (less than two years after Mass Effect 2, no reason why it was so rushed). At the time, I thought that it meant they knew exactly what their plan was and...

    Apparently they cut a truckload of features (including such substantial ones like third person gameplay and cutscenes; you will never see your custom character outside of reflections from mirrors and such). So I guess the original scope of the game was way larger than they could actually manage...

    If you had told me 9 years ago that this was a real, unedited image from a Nintendo game, posted by Sakurai himself... ...well, I'd have a lot of questions.

    Wait, Metroid Prime... co-op? How have I not heard of this? How does it work?

    Explaining to younger people what it was like being a Nintendo fan in 2020 is going to be an experience.

    Wait and see. Both games have some lingering questions over them. I've never played a skateboarding game, and while the things I've heard about Option B are encouraging, there's still room for things to go wrong, as has happened with some of Activision's similar titles in the past year or two...

    Sounds like Bowser's fursona will be exposed to the horrors of war after all.

    Retro Studios were actually cool with the glitches, it was Kensuke Tanabe who told them to take the glitches out. Typically, Japanese culture is such that when they make something, they make it in a specific way and you just have to take it or leave it. Like if you go to a restaurant in Japan...

    My thoughts exactly. Nintendo's M.O. for rereleases has always been making things "Deluxe" by adding something substantial or at least making it definitive and updated. This is clearly not that, but instead combining three ports with the most minor of improvements into one... and making it a...

    Wait a minute, Mario 64 isn't even widescreen, what kind of rinky-dink operation is this? There's fixed camera angles in some places that might have issues with widescreen, but I don't see why some tweaking couldn't have made it work. I've never gotten that far into 64, so maybe there's some...

    The Scott Pilgrim game issue is due to licensing problems, which is also why all of Activision's Marvel games are no longer on digital storefronts, and why Platinum Games's Transformers and TMNT games are gone, too, since those licenses expired without renewal. That still sucks, but at least...

    You could get away with just light press vs. full press, but there's a bit more of a spectrum there, which is what I'm curious about. I just went and tested it quick, there's more than just two stages for the regular FLUDD nozzle. Sunshine and Luigi's Mansion made full and heavy use of the...
