THIS NEW ANIMAL CROSSING JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER AND BETTER
Funny thing is somebody went and move right where a good tree was. More importantly, why can't they move over a bad rock placement instead? D:

I love this. Such an update. Mind you, New Leaf's updates were amazing enough as is.

This is such a good change. A lot of people are going to have fun designing their town exactly how they want it between this and the ability to put furniture outside

Nope. Still doesn’t seem real that Banjo-Kazooie is in Smash.

Also, that Stanley Cup game was amazing. I love a good trouncing, especially when it’s against Boston. **** the Bruins, yo.

Congrats to the Blues, from a Sabres fan.

I miss Ryan O’Reilly.
Hello fellow Sabres fan. Banjo one day, a Boston sports team losing the next. A good run here.

I just killed a mosquito while doing the default dance



Also on a completely unrelated note, nothing makes me as absolutely livid as car horn sounds in radio commercials while i'm driving. Why would they even do that, just to deliberately distract me? It's not like I even remember what they were advertising, because I was too busy restraining my from punching the radio before changing the station.

No dude I get it. I totally get it.

At least the Blue Jackets (I'm from Columbus) finally got a playoff series win for the first time ever in one of the greatest upsets in history. That was awesome.

**** Boston in general.

They don't get to have the Super Bowl, the World Series AND the Stanley Cup in the same year.

Thank God the Celtics horribly underperformed. They were stacked and could've made it a championship in every sport.

Shaya Shaya You and me both have the same sort of fervor for Banjo, but I definitely freaked out and cried 7-8 different times on the day of his reveal, and once this morning. I think it's finally settled into my system now, all the tears are out. He's finally here. I'm actually SHOCKED that anyone would be upset that ANY character got in the game at this point. We have so many characters, at this point I think it's fair game for anyone! Be happy for those around you if you can't be that for yourself, at least. It makes it a better time for all involved.

You know, NA video game enthusiasts need to diversify the games they play. One of my childhood games was Dragon Quest IV and more people need to experience that game, or the Dragon Quest series in general. Dragon Quest III onward are all nothing but excellent games well worth your time onward (II is a pain though!).
I feel like I have to warn the people that Dragon Quest 3 is a game that absolutely kicks you in the groin! It's very difficult. If there was a starting point I'd recommend, I'd say DQ5! That game also happened to inspire Pokemon, in part, due to its monster recruitment system and monsters following you on the map = D

Steve could fit companion theory.

Put a wolf/randomly-chosen animal in his taunt and make Alex take up half his alt. costumes (or also make two of them Herobrine).

Steve could also be friends with Banjo and Kazooie, except Kazooie mocks him.
I wonder if Steveposting would revive if that happened.

Companion theory is pretty flimsy imo, especially because the only character in the fighter pass so far to have a companion that really has any significance to their gameplay is Banjo. I feel like it's a coincidence at best, and the more likely explanation is simply that we see these "companions" more because Sakurai wants to include as much of a franchise in a fighter pack as possible to give it the most value for a fan of said franchise. Even if the next two fighters had "companions" show up, I doubt their inclusion had to do with them having said companions in the first place, and rather that the companions were added as an afterthought. We could get Scorpion, with him having a taunt where he cracks a cold one with Sub-Zero, and I wouldn't be convinced of this theory still.

Pretty much, plus you have to consider that the mural had already Mr Saturn on it. And in the case of the Hero and Joker it just makes sense to add Slime and Morgana due to being pretty much the mascot of the games they belong.

I'm not a Mortal Kombat fan but I'm pretty sure the only cold one Scorpion would want to crack is Sub Zero's skull

Masuda said they’re currently undecided on whether or not they’ll patch the rest of the Pokémon in at a later date

So there’s like, a sliver of a chance this’ll turn out okay

He also said Sword & Shield will pass 1,000 Pokémon so that’s cool
> Pass 1,000

> There's currently around 809 Pokemon.

Hot dang, that's a lotta Pokemanz.

Hold up source on that last part?

We have 809 Pokémon now.

That would be at least 191 Pokémon, aka the biggest amount to date.

*remembers how they refused to patch in the ORAS Megastones and stuff in XY but rather chose to make it impossible for ORAS content to get into XY multiplayer*

Did Wingull ever flap their wings? I just remember them staying in a permanent glide, though maybe there were a few cutscenes or something outside of battles where they would flap their wings...
I’m pretty sure it’s meant to be perpetually gliding.

Other bird Pokémon flap their wings just fine, I think it’s more to do with Wingull’s personality.
