  1. They've made Animal Crossing saves exceptions across most installments, so it wouldn't be too surprising even if the Switch handled AC different from the norm. You couldn't duplicate your GameCube or Wii AC file and there was the save data transfer tool gubbins for the 3DS that required a digi copy on the receiving end. They sure do take virtual furniture seriously.
  2. The loot isn't fucked, rather it's different by design. The overworld is loot poor, with the catacombs being purposefully high loot, MK14s spawning alongside a ton of mili vests, DMRs and a hospital's worth of meds. You can survivalist above ground like the old alpha PUBG - making the most with what you've scraped together - or put yourself in the firing line going for the good stuff. The overworld loot is also much more plentiful on its extremities, if you go to the centre snake compounds you'll not get much and will need to run to the nearest red flag round building as soon as you get a sticky. A lot of streamers and players jumped into the game without reading the patch notes, which is fair enough, and then being surprised when it isn't business as usual. The loot and map design here seems pretty deep and I'll be interested to see what the meta play ends up being once everyone's got to grips with Karakin. It's really not clear. Personally I love the new pace, it's like a legitimately Sanhok, i.e. actually fast. In 9 solo games I've had one 0 kill, averaging at 4 per match. It also seems to facilitate greater kill consistency if you know what you're doing. Likewise, Benny, NathanWind and I squadded roughshod across Karakin aggressing for the full 18 minutes match time and got a 10 kill chicken. The terrain is also fantastic, like a mini, condensed Erangel/Miramar, where you can perform those old rotations and landscape plays that Sanhok doesn't really allow. Naturally, Erangel and Miramar remain the best maps but this is something special.
  3. I kept you in mind, @geldra; here he is. In stock on the 26th and you can buy it now. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01HTAYMWU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_PjThEbPPAZF5Z?fbclid=IwAR1QfcGR6c7Nw4dFBGNoveuOtZJ6GxoFyMLdBn8pfKIQfVplHxiywVvTDC0
  4. Crossed wires here. Bar Hero, they're not anime! (But I see your wider point about characters demanded from online hoards. I guess they're the majority audience, though.)
  5. I don't know how much that's actually happening (is it?). Did Terry come from a ResetEra campaign? Banjo? I thought the internet was clamouring for a good mix of characters. Sora and Lloyd are up there, but it seems quite diverse as a whole. Genuinely I think Crash Bandicoot would be a good stylistic fit for Smash - and is certainly iconic enough - although I know he's about as popular as ham and pineapple pizza across the Brooker-lites of rllmuk.
  6. @Davros sock drawer seeing as you (rightfully) say it's a great game, you may be interested to hear that the Steam rerelease of Psychonauts made Meat Circus more forgiving, I'd go so far as to describe it as fixed.
  7. So what do we think will happen, guys, or rather, what do we want? When it was announced there'd by 5 DLC fighters I had mixed feelings when the penny dropped that they'd all be third party characters, but the later announcement that there'd be more DLC characters down the road was interesting. Would you like more third party chars in the next five, or would you like to see more Nintendo additions?

    Please Nintendo, just get it done! I'll even take a PowerA offering at this point.
  9. Broker's the most consistent rllmuker for ending up arguing with himself by the end of each judgement deliverance. I think George Lucas had it and is now past it, and yes, other people contributed to the success of the films. So did he. This Redlettermedia 'it was all an accident, he was always terrible' direction is amusing but goes far too far to dismiss his contributions because he made crap stuff later. It's gossip mag territory/ level of critical thinking, in my opinion. Yes, ideas are worthless without action - as we've all known since we were 20 etc etc - but Lucas did act and he ended up making Star Wars. It's alright.
  10. Yeah, if Kevvy Metal played 1+2 just before 3 and found 3 worse that's a thing in itself. I'm surprised, as I found 1+2 quite unforgiving and later games that cribbed QTEs quick made the margin for error larger, I'd assumed Shenmue 3 would work off these natural refinements. Maybe hard is just valued more by the director.
  11. Black & White Version 2 get a pass from me, given it was set two years later with a new storyline, five new towns, tons of new characters and features. Ultra Sun was slim as in its differences.
  12. You gifted me Shenmue in November and it became one of my best gaming times of the last half decade - played, completed and loved. <3
