I don't think a Resident Evil rep is AS likely as everyone thinks it is, but it could certainly happen and it'd be ****ing insane if it did.
I think a Bethesda rep is guaranteed at this point, and it's almost certainly Doomguy.

Its interesting how Puyo Puyo is a bigger franchise than Castlevania, Tales, Metroid, Doom, Devil May Cry, etc but you never see any major push for it in smash

Id assume if there was a push we'd have arle by now

I'm trying to imagine what a Resident Evil trailer would be like for Smash and it just...I don't know how to begin. They already pulled the Luigi's Mansion thing, so maybe they make the poor man suffer some more by making him traverse through the Spencer Estate.
I saw a post earlier where someone said Luigi should go through hell again and get turned into a zombie and then get his head blown in by Leon.

That be pretty ****ed up but I would laugh

As seen with Banjo they don't need to be creative with the CG trailer and just repeat an older one with the same joke so they probably would do that

I found the funniest thread on 4chan btw in regards to the Pokémon home news:
http://boards.4channel.org/vp/thread/38919233

I thought by eliminating the National Dex, the Regional Dex would thrive, but you have shown me... that's impossible. As long as there are those that remember what was, there will always be those, that are unable to accept what can be. They will resist.
>I'm thankful...because now...I know what I must do. I will shred this region down to it's last pokémon and then, with the money you've collected for me, create a new one. It is not what is lost but only what it is been given... a grateful universe.

Well, theres at least one unarguably good thing about this whole fiasco is the Thanos memes. Worth it in my eyes.

Can we just take a step back for a second and talk about how awesome it is to be a Nintendo fan right now? I stepped out for the WiiU like most but went all in once the Switch came out and this is just all so fun. Even with setbacks, it is consistently clear they know what people want and are making that happen.
I mean, we already knew of a majority of the games showcased but apparently that doesn't matter

We also lacked a lot of details on them.

Not everything has to be some big and shiny new game.

Three houses, animal crossing, daemon X machina, astra chain, and Luigi’s mansion all needed better explanations and they got them. Not to mention Nintendo had more gameplay then most of the other conferences and that’s very important to people.

Also don’t even get me started on ports. I get that people want new games but the hate on old ones is stupid. Who doesn’t want a console that can play some of the most memorable titles of all time on it and while on the go?

That’s a great selling point and smart move. Ports have always sold so why fix what ain’t broke. Clearly Nintendo knows what they are doing or they wouldn’t be this successful, so let them continue

They can clearly repeat concepts, as Banjo showcased.

The idea for B-K was that they were reuniting with old Nintendo+Rareware characters - yeah it had the same gag but eh it was perfect imo.

You can do a theme like that without repeating the same trailer with the same gags too. I swear, people think you can't do a theme without being a blatant copy

But it was funny!

K Rool is just hanging out with the Kongs now like he’s got nowhere to go

They made fun of the Duck Hunt comparison

It was funny!

Not to mention the ending being similar to Banjo and Kazooie beating Grunty at the start of the first game, which was another gag in itself.

I mean I guess they could’ve done a Diddy Kong Racing-themed reveal with a similar effect, but I think this one was fantastic. I don’t really mind the same fakeout gag and base concept being used (it still had a new concept with how it’s B-K and not a villain anyway), it was done in a new way instead of literally the same.

I get this sentiment, but I think we've got a pretty packed slate already for the upcoming months and figure as they said in the direct they'll be announcing more new games soon.

I also give them a bit of the benefit of the doubt because I figure the Switch's lifespan will be pretty long and they don't want to burn through too many IPs too quickly.

That being said, I'm still hoping we see another Mario sports game (preferably soccer or baseball) and would love a Wii Sports update for the Switch. And for others sake I really hope Pikman 4 happens eventually and people get their Metroid 4 and Prime Trilogy.

I wonder if the Switch will eventually get the REmake of 2.
Maybe, but unless it's handled as decently well as Doom's port, I'd be a bit worried. MK11's port is a bit off, and not just in the visual department. But who knows, it could turn out well if it happened.

SaltyBet can be really hype. Saw a 2v2 Match with SSG Goku and Iron Man vs Alex from SF3 and Rock Howard. Iron Man was straight up trash but Goku almost brought it back.

The most unrealistic thing about Banjo in Smash?

The fact Sakurai expects me to believe the sassy ***** that is Kazooie would be totally fine with Banjo using her like a bat to beat ******* with.
Well she's clearly fine with being used as a makeshift gun, so who knows.

Much less likely.

Asked directly about that possibility for RE7, Capcom reps said that the RE Engine requires too much power to possibly be ported to Switch. They followed this up by releasing a Japan-only streaming version of RE7 for the Switch because that was the only way it could run.

RE2make (and DMC5) use the same engine. Meanwhile, RE5 and RE6 were both originally designed to run on an Xbox 360.

Also I'm ****ing excited to play proper Mercenaries on my train ride to and from work. I just hope it's not thirty ****ing dollars again.


I'm pretty sure people are happy about Resident Evil 5 at least, maybe no RE6, but that's probably just there for completions sake.

I wonder if Resident Evil 3 will actually get that remake of its own or not.
You know, even though RE6 is commonly **** on, its lifetime sales are only slightly lower than RE5's, unless you count RE5's Gold Edition rerelease. It surprises me because I genuinely don't like the game, but it has a somewhat major following.

I trust Dusk Golem when he has RE news. If he says RE3make is happening, it's happening. He didn't say it'd be at E3; just that it'll be early 2020. We should remember that RE4 and RE5 were both announced at the Tokyo Game Show, not E3. So it's still possible.

She accepts it because she lives in the backpack rent-free and thus can't really complain

So by repeating the same trailer with the same setting, the same setup, the same "fooled you" joke and then the same "Actually we didn't" joke it's apparantly just as good? We could have had the same idea without taking the same trailer. Bowser Jr kept the same set up as Mega Man but actually did enough things differently to make the trailer stand out. But Banjo was just the same **** we've seen before. I didn't find Hero an exciting addition either but at least the trailer actually had something going for it

The joke is that they did the same joke twice, that’s the whole premise.

If you don’t find it funny then fine, but they executed the theme perfectly and hilariously imo.

Gwen, I'm gonna be real with you, you've been incredibly transparent with how much you hate Banjo, long before his reveal even, so it's kind of hard to take these criticisms seriously. It really just feels like you're looking for things to nitpick about.
