I’m also sad Cyberverse has no season four.

@  Paladin : (26 May 2020 - 08:10 PM)

it's too hugging hot today.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I'll agree with you on that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

Although the TV edits of Robocop do contain some hilarity

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 May 2020 - 06:39 PM)

I'm watching Predator on Starz! That means it has all the language and gore uncensored!

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 04:23 PM)

*grabs popcorn*

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

I'm loving Mirror of Fate so far. The quick time events at the ends of boss fights are dumb, but the rest of the game is a great cross between old-school platformy Castlevania and new-school Metroidvania. The combat feels wonderfully visceral. There's a real feeling of impact when Simon Belmont pwns some undead n00b.

I really want to get one, but I know it will just sit there and hardly ever get used. Is the XL really better than the regular 3DS? I'd think that a low resolution screen made even bigger would look bad. I don't understand why Nintendo didn't put a higher resolution display on it.

Most people I've talked to have said the XL is substantially better. More comfortable, better battery life, and the screen, surprisingly, doesn't look worse. I still have my original Ambassador though, so I couldn't tell you.

I'm holding out for some new XL colors myself. Come on Nintendo, it's the year of Luigi, where's my green and black XL?

I might consider upgrading to an XL when/if they release a Circle Pad Pro for it. The bigger screen and longer battery life look awesome, but for me they're not worth sacrificing the ability to play Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, Kingdom Hearts, and soon, Monster Hunter with a better control scheme.

XL all the way. The screen is much more comfortable (and as far as I can tell, the image looks the same or maybe even nicer), the bigger size fits my hands with less finger cramps, and I prefer the layout of the smaller buttons and stylus holder here. The battery life is MUCH better than the standard version. It really surprised me there.
And if you happen to have Netflix, get the XL. When I don't have a new game to play, I spend most of my 3DS time watching stand-up comedy before going to sleep every night.

One more reason I prefer the XL: the nice matte finish on the outside is more resistant to fingerprints and smudges. My OCD had me constantly polishing my normal 3DS with its shiny shiny finish.

If I could get an XL with my Zelda color scheme and my games transferred, I'd consider it.

The games do migrate with the System Transfer feature. The Zelda colors don't. Why has science failed us?

ON topic: I think the year looks great for 3DS, but then again for the most part I'm a pretty slow gamer so I'm still finishing up all the great stuff from last year AND I've only just scratched the surface on my Ambassador games. I snagged Paper Mario Sticker Star with some Amazon credit when they had it on sale for $25 last week, I'm trying to speed through it so I can grab Fire Emblem when I get enough money(hopefully over spring break). I've heard mixed things about Castlevania but I liked the demo so I'll give it a shot, and I'm all about Luigi's Mansion as well.

I'm in the minority here, but I couldn't stand Majora's Mask. I thought its central conceit, the timed nature of each series of days, was one of the worst Scrappy Mechanics ever, like the Drop System in Kingdom Hearts 3D, but worse. I'm only interested in seeing it on 3DS if they have an option to turn the timer off, like Casual Mode in Fire Emblem. I'd love to see the 3D remake of A Link to the Past that Miyamoto's been hinting at, though.

As for Metroid, I'd enjoy a TPS, but I'd rather have a new sidescroller with 3D graphics. The 3DS is really good with those, between New Super Mario Bros. 2, Castlevania: Mirror of Fate, and Shinobi.

We also need more fighting games. A Super Smash Bros. reveal would be great, of course, but I'd also love to see 3DS versions of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Street Fighter X Tekken, given how well Super Street Fighter IV turned out on the system.

Castlevania is sooooooo good. Ignore the naysayers! I wasn't a big fan of Paper Mario, however. One should have some non-consumable attacks in an RPY.

I think Majora's Mask is a pretty safe bet in the grand scheme of things, since they already have OOT3D and MM is basically an expansion/rebuild it doesn't seem like it'd be too hard a conversion.

Ignore the naysayers, and ignore the non-naysayers. It has a demo, see for yourself if you want to play it. I personally tried the demo and disliked the game - and I'm not a Metroidvania fanboy in the least (I own none, but I loved the classic Castlevania series)

I simply couldn't stand the framerate and ridiculous QTEs. Really, I gotta hammer on a button just to open a chest? Stupid.

Like I said, try the demo, it's clearly a love it or hate it game with little middle ground.

Yeah, a does-small-damage-only jump or hammer option would have been great, especially last night during my first big boss fight. I died the first two times, then on the third I got it down to 20 health, then ran out of stickers while it kept healing and spawning fodder enemies. Ugh. Now I'm stuck in the polluted woods because I can see all these alternate exits but I can't reach any of them and my map won't expand any more.

I hope to get my thoughts on that up later today, but what I played of multiplayer was surprisingly fun...

By which I mean, you hear something like "multiplayer Luigi's Mansion" and ask "can that work?" And the answer is, in my opinion, yes!

I like how mine looks, but there's a comfort proposition to consider there as well.

Eh, you never know. They did the VC release, Geno got his cameo in Superstar Saga, and Nintendo and Square Enix have been pretty chummy lately, with the latter making other Mario games for the former-- Mario Hoops 3 on 3, Mario Sports Mix, and Fortune Street (which is really great if you enjoy Monopoly).

If anything, there's probably a better chance of a Super Mario RPG remake than a Final Fantasy VII one.

Heck, I bet a remake for the 3DS would be pretty neat.
