    Square Enix Sale on Nintendo Switch & 3DS

    very minor note, but it's funny how NEO The World Ends with You is on this sale listing, but The World Ends With You: Final Remix is not...

    September 2021 Nintendo Direct Recap

    I'm honestly kinda mixed about it as well... on one hand, there's the upcoming content for Age of Calamity (already got the pass, so I'm set), the last Smash character (very pessimistic about the aftermath, but we'll see), and Kirby's newest title (forgotten land... I'm more inclined to think...

    Pokemon Presents featuring BDSP & Legends: Arceus to Air on August 18th

    yeah, it is... but so were a fair amount of older games that didn't hold your hand like most NES and SNES games that nintendo never stops rereleasing. bear in mind, I didn't have the bulk of the anti-frustration features that older games had, and so the addition of them today just makes a lot of...

    Pokemon Presents featuring BDSP & Legends: Arceus to Air on August 18th

    that is certainly a possibility... Pokemon games have certainly not made much of an effort to challenge players... at least not beyond optional stuff like the Battle Frontier. honestly, though, that's probably why Platinum in particular felt so special to me... all the quality of life changes...

    Pokemon Presents featuring BDSP & Legends: Arceus to Air on August 18th

    not exactly... cause I was one of those kinds of kids, too... and it bit me in the ass when I reached Pokémon Colosseum's final boss in the plot. I'm throwing newer players under the bus on the side because pokemon games these days are a little too hand holdy, and don't really present much of a...

    Pokemon Presents featuring BDSP & Legends: Arceus to Air on August 18th

    that is possible. my little rant was mainly aimed at those kinds of folks who blaze through the main story (y'know, who challenge the champion underleveled)... the kinds of people who more or less don't take their time with the game... until after their character becomes champion. it was also a...

    Pokemon Presents featuring BDSP & Legends: Arceus to Air on August 18th

    ...oh, right, there was going to be a remake of Generation IV, wasn't there... considering that the culture around that generation is VASTLY different from how things have been presently, you can bet your sorriest hide, I'm going to have some VERY jaded color glasses when looking at this...

    Nintendo Announces New Switch Model

    ...uhh, if this is only mildly drunk, I'd be interested to see what happens if it went a step farther. I do have to admit that it didn't really cross my mind that reusing of assets was a symptom of executive scheduling... although, now that I think about it, I remember talking with a friend...

    Kazuya Announced for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    if it was so boring, why did you only recently concede the debate...? doesn't sound like you'll remotely accept [or acknowledge] the point. anyways... considering Ken and Terry, it was only a matter of time we'd see SOMEONE from Tekken... personally, I expected Jin since he appeared in the...

    Mario Golf: Super Rush overview trailer goes over roster and modes

    from what I remember about this Speed Golf, it kinda makes me think of Happy Gilmore... except this is significantly more family friendly and (IMO) nowhere near as funny.

    Nintendo Switch Online May update adds 5 SNES and NES games.

    four SNES games and an NES game... sigh... wish I could say I know what these titles are, but I don't... but at least there's some folks who like them, and power to them. anything I'll say further has probably been ranted about for awhile, so I guess I'll save everyone the trouble...

    NEO: The World Ends With You receives a worldwide release date and trailer

    I referenced Kingdom Hearts III for a reason... and not just because it was developed by Square. it had been announced near the end that it was slated for release in 2018, by that point it was almost November before it was finally revealed at the end of an orchestra performance that the final...

    NEO: The World Ends With You receives a worldwide release date and trailer

    teaser trailer left Neku entirely out of the picture... especially considering the ending of Final Remix, now he's some kind of mysterious presence along the lines of Organization XIII from Kingdom Hearts? Damn it Square, I'm SICK of this teasing! if this game gets delayed, I'm putting on my...

    The Secret Reason for Patch 11.0.1

    it's entirely possible the opponent disconnected, and your friend fought a bot at some point... if that happens, that TYPICALLY results in no change to GSP, win or lose. unlike speedrunning,, though, the community for Amiibo VS hasn't yet grown enough to warrant something like GDQ, where...

    Smash World Tour's Next Stop: A Look at Oceania

    only names I recognize from this assortment is Poppt1 and Kanga I'm subbed to Poppt1's Youtube channel for his "The Mind of..." videos he did awhile back, though his win or Dare series he sometimes does with Little Z is charming at least. I've heard Kanga's name mentioned once or twice in...
