  1. Some big titles down to £33 digitally... anyone know off-hand what that translates to on the SA store?
  2. Please don’t tell me this was last Party Crash. Oh well at least got to enjoy one.
  3. I played a lot of this weekends Party Crash and it’s made me regret not playing more of them. Once the mechanics click, the game is so much fun - and it’s incredibly satisfying playing with motion control and levelling, unlocking arms, art, badges etc. I hope they keep running the Party Crashes running for the foreseeable future. Marvellous game. One of the Switch’s best.
  4. I just want more MK8. So maybe a track editor, season passes with annual added tracks, more Nintendo characters. So MK8 but Smash Kart & a track editor.
  5. Ryo is a troubled soul who invented his fathers murder at the hands of Lan Di (his real, absent father) and proceeds to go around collecting children's toys and getting into run-ins with sailors and young, street toughs for "revenge".
  6. When an insult is a stealth-compliment. Tales of Dragon Emblem of Mana Hunter Quest XII: 100 Hour Epic of Coloured-Hair Teens and Token Anthropomorphised Animal who will Finally End the Epic Battle One Ultimate Time: Slow-Reader Edition.
  7. I hope Zelda is protagonist this time.
  8. Not enough context to truly judge the intent - is it even possible to portray a fictional cyberpunk dystopia whilst conforming to contemporary social sensibilities? I guess CDPR have lost some benefit of doubt given their shitty social media posts.
  9. Well this was truly a fallow year for E3. Guess devs are busy prepping next-gen titles for E3 2020. Should be a good one.
  10. If coasting on that market by churning out identikit RPG’s makes them coin, then great for them. But I’m sat here waiting for the next Mario Galaxy, the next Splatoon, the next Wii Sports, Mario Kart, Warioware and Zelda... and their 2018/19 1st party line-up has been sparse. I mean, they’re doing so well they put out a half-arsed, shoddy effort like Mario Tennis Aces. They’re tight as fuck with their development budgets. Like Broker says: the games they have chosen to put out this gen have been updates of recent releases, it’s getting repetitive: Another Yoshi, more Wii U ports, another Mario Maker. Animal Crossing’s gameplay looks so goddamn dated in a world with the interactivity and building of Minecraft (and oddly, Fortnite). But I console myself in the knowledge we’re probably getting Odyssey 2 and Metroid next xmas. And Luigi’s Mansion 3 looks ace.
  11. Generic Mech game. Nice art style. Bad frame rate. Zone of Enders with a dash of SOTC. Will appeal to this forum, no doubt. There are a subset of gamers who love anime, JRPG’s, Platinum, Suda for whom Nintendo are catering quite nicely with Switch. I am no longer one of those people, so it was underwhelming.
  12. 100% this. I don’t quite understand what was great about Nintendo’s E3 showing outside of a brief Zelda announcement. We knew DQ and Banjo were in Smash. We already knew about Links Awakening, Luigi’s Mansion and Animal Crossing look as expected. The latter has slipped to 2020. Witcher 3 on Switch leaked and is sub-optimal and a bad fit for the system. No Metroid or Pikmin. No SNES Online or Gamecube remasters. The rest is great if you love JRPG’s or derivative stuff like Daemon X Machina / Astral Plain. There were no big third party surprises or first party IP’s announcements outside of Zelda.
  13. You’re right, Ubisoft are wizards, and despite these games having a quick-as-fuck turnaround they’ve somehow managed to model hundreds of unique player characters into the game each with their own back story, relationships and personalised missions. And I don’t think you understand what mansplaining is, but ta for the biscuit.
  14. That Link’s Awakening Chibi Amiibo... gimme dat. Guessing they’ll be available to preorder at a random date and time?
  15. Nintendo did just average, but they look good compared to how poor the competition was. MS skating on third party til the end of gen. Ubi rushing out sequels and propping up their GaaS. The Keanu Reeves moment was the highlight, but no Capcom or Sony left a gaping hole. For an absentee to sink the whole expo, makes them the winner.
  16. It's smoke and mirrors though. There will be say, 8 character classes with different missions attached to them. eg. Brawlers can do boxing missions. Grannies can do spider espionage missions. If you die you get to pick a new character from the 8 classes and their location, appearance, name etc. are randomly selected from presets. There may be a few more variables to it, but essentially they've just turned generic open world NPC's into glorified respawn points, with some attributes tweaks to differentiate them within their class. The question is how quickly this will be come apparent and how repetitive will it become? And this is an Ubisoft open world game after all.
  17. There have been much better Nintendo presentations since TP, not least the Switch 2017 line-up reveal.
  18. There was about a dozen, what were you watching? And the first two Smash pass characters are JRPG, including one that isn’t even on a Nintendo console.
  19. Too many JRPG’s. In Smash and in general. And yet no Persona 5.
  20. This E3 has made me think it’s time to put this hobby away until PS5. In 2019 there’s Death Stranding, which I’m not sure about at all, Modern Warfare aka more of the same and Luigi’s Mansion 3, which is the best of the bunch. The novelty of Mario Maker kind of wore out first time round though I’m sure it’s a hoot. Everything juicy is coming 2020 - AC, Cyberpunk, FFVII. This has been the worst E3, because you can tell they’re winding down. Nintendo didn’t bring new hardware to the table or any big surprises other than BotW2, which is a couple of years out. Just a bit of a “meh” year.
  21. Watch dogs 3 was interesting but needed to launch this side of xmas. Coming out around the same time as FFVII and Cyberpunk 2077... Cyberpunk is going to destroy it.
