@  Paladin : (21 September 2018 - 11:10 AM)

random thought: has Nintendo ever made a 3DS that looks like a Pokedex? because that seems like a GOLDMINE waiting to happen...

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2018 - 03:23 AM)

Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

Is something going on? I'm missing the buttons to go to the newest post and there's no banner for the forum list, it just says "logo" in the corner.

So he also has White Castle-like qualities?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 September 2018 - 02:23 PM)

@  RichardT1977 : (11 September 2018 - 01:22 PM)

Overlord has some castle-like qualities to him

@  wonko the sane? : (11 September 2018 - 12:15 PM)

Fix it, like, found a working power adaptor, or fix it like: there was saudering involved.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 11:58 AM)

that feeling when you fix something and works like a dream. we now have a working snes in my house and I have tested 10 games on it and they all work.

@  Arazyr : (11 September 2018 - 10:44 AM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 September 2018 - 09:27 PM)

Upgrade is a GREAT dark sci fi throwback film. Kind of feels like the genre has been nailing some good stuff after a LONG time of drek

So, "I before E, except after Siege"? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 September 2018 - 01:59 PM)

Memorandum to all: the word "siege" is spelled with the "i" before the "e".

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (07 September 2018 - 01:03 AM)

Funny thing is, I think the pocket edition graphics give the game more personality.

@  MEDdMI : (06 September 2018 - 11:10 PM)

Final Finception

@  Waspinator : (06 September 2018 - 10:29 PM)

They've made a PS4 version of Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition. For those keeping score, it's the PS4 version of a smartphone version of a PS4 game.

@  wonko the sane? : (05 September 2018 - 09:20 PM)

Ah HA! turns out the trick to installing the rift software was to run it as an admin. Stupid windows 10.

@  wonko the sane? : (05 September 2018 - 04:58 PM)

Awright! I got the display port working! Which means I can now connect my occulus rift!

The one they used to take the pictures is the only one they'll ever produce. I never saw a NES Mini in the wild, and I doubt I'll ever see one of these.

I'm kinda shocked about Star Fox 2.  The most complete ROM online (last I knew of) still isn't entirely presentable... it locks up at times and plays very poorly.  Regardless, I'm very interested to see what they're doing with that.

Our old speculation thread about this subject.  Truthfully, baring Star Fox and the number of total titles...I wasn't THAT far off :p

 

I'm just a bit disappointed we get fewer games at a higher price....but damn if the selection isn't impressive.  The inclusion of the Star Fox games is a HUGE surprise for me, and I'm glad to see the RPG genre so well represented.  A touch disappointed no Pilotwings or space shooters.

 

I'm going to be making a serious effort to preorder this one.  The NES was nice...but many of these games DEFINED my childhood.

I believe the higher price is due to two controllers being bundled this time. That's one lesson they learned apparently.

So apparently Star Fox 2 was completed, but not released for legal reasons.  Well that answers a lot of questions.

 

I so want this thing now!

I hope for significantly longer controller cords.

 

Otherwise, this is good news and I hope to get one. I'm kind of sorry I passed up an opportunity to get the NES Classic.

And after the huge debacle with the NES Mini, people are still planning to give Nintendo their money for this. Including Jim Sterling, the Champion of the People who declared Nintendo to be dead to him over how they handled things. This is what late capitalism looks like, folks. No longer feeling beholden to the people, the corporations have you on your knees begging for seconds. Stay classy, gamers.

Begging on their knees? What?

 

It's a videogame. Nobody with any sense of maturity or priority will be genuinely mad enough wasn't made of one of them. You should be overjoyed there's people out there that understand facts like that and aren't going to go green in the face at Nintendo about it and perhaps hope that people who spent hours in lines at Walmart for a NES Classics understood a valuable lesson about "you shouldn't spend 400 dollars on a hugging toy in aftermarket, it's not that important".

 

THAT is what "classy" should be.

Unless you have internet access for Virtual console access on....Wii, Wii U, New 3DS, New 2DS.  Or a Game Boy Advance (or DS). Or an original Super Nintendo and game.  Or a computer with an emulator and ROM.

 

There are NO shortage of ways to play that game.

I was able to find a NES classic in the wild a few months into run, of course it was also the ONLY time I saw one in the wild so...

So it's not entirely hopeless, though I will try to take precautions to secure it for launch.
