    I dunno about the second half of that first sentence - because when you get down to it, challenging Snake falling whilst holding a nade usually has favourable risk-reward for Snake, especially at mid percents and higher. If you want this to actually give you favourable odds most of the time, you...

    MKLeo used Chrom to defeat Gackt at Uprising after Gackt handily bested Joker game 1. https://youtu.be/xuBsyMTWFb0

    Layton takes the case! The Professor Layton for Smash Ultimate support thread!

    Was this not the same issue of ONM where Professor Layton "crosses over" with Resident Evil, exposing the zombies as drunk undergrad students, and Kyle Hyde beats Batman in a fistfight in a showdown of the greatest video game detectives? (a feature celebrating PL vs PW) I can understand if some...

    Ghost Trick in top 5 is a very pleasant surprise. The recurring trends in that list are puzzle-adventure games and JRPGs, which is a testament to the type of console it was. There will never be anything quite like it again!

    Eternal Diva could actually be the best videogame movie! Up with Detective Pikachu for sure. It's a very good take on Layton. As for music, I'm going to plug this choice every chance I get: Theme of the Last Time Travel, the main theme from Layton 3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmd58nFB6OI...

    Layton takes the case! The Professor Layton for Smash Ultimate support thread!

    You know, I was never the biggest fan of the prequels for a few reasons, plot being one of them, but you may have encouraged me to see that I'm just an idiot and missed a lot of nuance and should probably replay them now. Writing stories like this particular plot point for games is always...

    Hi guys! My DS memories start with a DS Lite and Mario Kart. But I mainly got the system for Pokémon, back when Pokémon releases were nowhere near as common and a new game was a huge deal. Having played Pokémon Gold religiously more or less since that game released (was never so into Hoenn) and...

    Ness had a very odd tournament. Gackt getting 49 was sick, but pretty much all the other notable Nesses - FOW, Awestin, SexyBeast420, PEW and Lumbre - got 65th! (BestNess was not in attendance but idc. He would have placed similarly, and unlike all of these guys, he is not a solo Ness) (EDIT...

    Lucas has bigger problems than his lack of a combo game although that is a serious problem he has - getting nothing off his hits. That's kind of devastating in and of itself but it does get worse. Pokes: they were really good in S4 but not so much here. ZAir was gutted pretty bad, Dtilt doesn't...

    To be fair to Greninja, we should apply some context here. IStudying's set with MVD was 3-2 MVD's favour. It could easily have gone the other way and Greninja at 5th place could be the talk of the town instead. When iStudying and MVD played before (in Smash 4), that was another close set which...

    Not reeeaaally. As I said in that post (though it got absorbed in a spoiler somehow. Whoops), Diddy Kong was always used as a secondary and just because those players had been known to use him, doesn't mean they actually had enough faith to use him over their mains in the largest FGC event...

    Meru is still in! While he mainly uses Peach, Meru WILL get very far in bracket - so there is plenty of potential for Zelda to shine yet. Keep an optimistic mind my friend, you may surprised at what could transpire!

    Speaking of Miyamoto, this just appeared: https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/miyamoto-says-its-hard-to-make-adventure-games-in-current-climate/ He describes Layton and Ace Attorney as the hope for the whole adventure game genre (one of my favourites) and that kind of indicates just how...
