  2. People complained about GameCube sequels like Sunshine and Wave Race being marginally worse than their N64 predecessors but they were nonetheless still solid gold. The Triforce fetch quest in Wind Waker was worse than the best bits of OoT! CONDEMN. Sunshine remains excellent.
  3. This is wonderful. Right at the start pottering around solo PC with the smallest ship, but wow, love it. So much to learn but starting to get a grasp on things in my 3rd hour. I managed to park my ship properly on the...7th try?

    SeanR, are these clips a cry for help?

    Fall Guys

    The wobbly controls are the whole point. From Gang Beasts to sportsfriends to Starwhal to Mount Your Friends, the physicsy calamities are an essential ingredient. Games without the struggle would go on so long and cease to be a drop in/drop out affair with much of the humour gone.

    Red. :O 'Schoolbag Blue' can stay on the shelf, though.

    Fall Guys

    Fall Guys was almost there for me, but not quite. It throws a lot of good things in the pot, like physics-based multiplayer hilarity and the enduring battle royale concept. But for whatever reason I only found it middling fun. Half of the games weren't enjoyable when they rolled around and you can't really play with your friends. There's nothing bad about it, just not for me.
  8. @Benny's a $7.79 microtransaction.

    In my first four games, I was eliminated TWICE while stepping over the finish line. Bastard Guys.
  10. Only Nintendo has the stats on that, and as their action is to have taken Pikmin 3 down on there, it stands to reason that it's: not zero. I'm always amazed when I idly boot up the PS3, 3DS or WiiU stores and there are changing charts, user ratings and other little clues about quiet, ongoing activity. Or 3DS themes for games only out on the Switch. This year, Nintendo took down the WiiU/3DS eshops 'in certain Latin American and Caribbean countries by 31st July 2020'. But not everywhere. No way will the WiiU eshop last for as long as the Wii eshop (finally shut down last year) as the userbase isn't there, but as enthusiast adults (who can buy every console and lament their piles of shame on rllmuk) it's surprising how many people are out there playing old consoles, more casually, for ages. I've got a neighbour who never moved on from the PS2, but still actively plays it and shops for new games at CEX like it's 2003! 7 sales of Pikmin 3U have been dodged just in time, saving Nintendo $240. Edit: Just caught your fake outrage point, @Bojangle. Probably not the case. Fine if you don't care or agree but doesn't mean someone else's take is fake or in bad faith. This isn't a politics thread - unless Louie departed Hocotate for darker reasons I'm unaware of.

    Putting the twee into tweet.
  12. No need to explain how it basically invented Half Life 2 five years earlier, it's obvious!
  13. @johnjpicked it up for the first time a month or two ago, iirc. If Nintendo have still got the WiiU store up and are happy with people buying titles still (and they do, or it'd be gone), I think you can understand why people find it a bit rubbish that they take some of the games for that console away because pricier ports have been released on a different machine. The later revelation that they come back is good news, obviously, although I'd be surprised if the average consumer is made aware of that.
  14. Miyamoto's involvement in saving the first from Nishi's flopping was a great thing, it's a wonderful game. It shines with cheeriness and melancholy and it's pretty deft with some heavy familial themes. Most of you technically have a new Chibi Robo game to play; 'Clean Sweep' on the DS is very much the second best Chibi Robo ever, but only released in Japan. A full (and very good) fan translation was recently completed, and it's the only traditional sequel to the classic GameCube original.
  15. Consoles and memory cards and controllers in the steamy bathroom. Jesus Christ. The only console that lasts longer in a sauna environment is a 360.
  16. That happened to me with the last Animal Crossing when my sava data transfer to a 'New' 3DS nuked half my saves. AC was gone, but luckily I had my Pokemon in Pokemon Bank (now Pokemon Home on the Switch).
  17. Your and Lorf's personal resale market of two won't take a hit, I wouldn't worry. It's the closest thing to a perpetual motion machine that humanity's achieved.
  18. As this is a product made for the collectors market, I wonder if its resale value will have any legs and whether that history-minded community will have an interest long-term. I think it could easily be a bit of a retro collector darling that's followed with a sharp cooling off when this honeymoon period's over. Will they dodge it beginning to feel a bit hollow compared to the history-laden stuff that it apes? Hope it outlives being a novelty and it doesn't fall foul of basically offering something new, but with what is ultimately a weaker feeling of nostalgia.

    Nintendo Switch

    One of my favourite emulator surprise discoveries, that was.
  20. That's all of Nintendo's code-based stuff, though, seemingly hamstrung last minute by The Fear. But that's alright today, even moreso than in New Leaf's day. There'll be infinite codes on every social media platform imaginable, we'll be able to tour for years.
  21. Yep, it was that in the past. I wonder how much arriving/leaving stuff it saves you from. Presumably loads.
  22. Good mic and camera quality for a test stream. I do think your co-host might be essential.
