    Introductions thread.

    Hello, I'm Lucina. I joined Ninfora's predecessor a decently long time ago. I've been doing alright since my mom died a few years ago, I'm living with my fiancee still and going to college for language studies. I hope you've all been well.

    it's wild to me that anybody can be upset at delaying a game in 2019 when the industry standard is to release half-finished early-access games that need months of patches to reach a point where they're functional i welcome delays at this point, give me a game that's polished and working pls

    Thank you! I'm quite excited for the upgrade since it will ultimately make my life much easier, and the site will be even more maintainable going into the future. Plus, the upgrades going in should make the site 10-20%+ faster as well! Fixing username colours is next on my list of Ninfora-related tasks to do. But I also have a lot more on my plate with the servers that I've procured recently enough. This has been an exciting and demanding year, to say the least.

    Hopefully a positive effect. I am personally sick and tired of this constant nickel and diming bullshit that has been going on with the gaming industry. I understand they want to make money, but this shit is a fucking multi-billion dollar industry now. I mean these fucking cunts sell us half finished products and then go "want extra lives? Have to pay us $1 per life. You want the rest of the game, you will have to pay us $2 per stage that comes out. Want to continue because you died too much? Pay us $5." It is truly becoming a virtual casino and because children are very much at risk of falling prey to this, something has to be done. I get that some people will bitch and moan that "I like the gambling aspect of it." However, this is not a good business model and it really does hurt the consumer. I get it that they don't give a fuck who they hurt in the process cause they are laughing their asses to the bank with our money and signing it with their nuts. I already have a hard time with DLC, I typically never buy DLC unless it is really worth it. It has to add something significant to a game for me to buy DLC. I guess maybe I am just old-school and I like how back in the day you could buy a game, you knew it was fucking complete, and what you got is what you got. Now don't get me wrong, I understand the concept of DLC and I am not opposed to it, but as far as I am concerned, it should be illegal for them to use it in the predatory nature that they have. That goes with micro-transactions, loot boxes, and DLC. If these developers/publishers continue to have the ability to prey upon their consumers, then there is no stopping them from taking a PS4 game and smashing that shit into 1000 pieces and then selling that shit to us piece by piece $1 at a time. That is what is going on with a lot of this shit and it needs to stop.

    So... -That was a good introduction to Doug Bowser. (Poor Bowser.) -DQ Hero in Smash. Good to see another SE rep. -That's a lot of Mana and Contra. -Travis is back! -Dammit Duck Hunt! -Sad to see Animal Crossing delayed. -BotW sequel! It was a marked improvement from last year. I liked it.

    Even a vague trailer and a simple confirmation that something is in development has me super hyped. I was just talking with my brother a couple weeks ago about how we'd love to see a Breath of the Wild sequel à la Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask, and boom E3 delivers.

    I really don’t think Pokémon ever had much to offer in terms of story. Gen 5 was the only time the games had me stop and think for a minute, but in my opinion at the time (haven’t replayed the games in years) their message mostly came off condescending. The rest? They’re fine. But ultimately the same from one generation to the next. Beat bad team, become Champion. Rinse and repeat. Couldn’t agree more on hand holding though (felt like a very long extended tutorial on Melemele Island in Alola). But really I wish they had difficulty levels so it was more accessible to everyone’s speed. I admit I am mad about basically cutting out a large swath of their Pokémon but not sure it’s really a hill I want to die on.

    weird. on my desktop and phone you appear nice and purple Edit: ohhhhh. On desktop, your name is white, but your title (i.e. moderator) is purple. On mobile, your name is purple. Edit 2: To make matters more confusing, in places where your name would appear but not your ttile (e.g. showing you who posted last in a thread), your name is purple. Your name is color is shroedinger's purple. Let's just go with that.

    E3 proper doesn't begin until next week, but since there are a few big gaming news events coming up this week I thought listing out the schedule would be helpful now, as well as a thread to discuss E3 in general (remember to put any rumors, leaks, or spoilers in a spoiler tag). Sony will not be attending E3 this year but there's still going to be plenty to see!

    Cyberpunk 2077 aside, there weren't really any games that piqued my interest at this E3. Then Nintendo came along! Switch is such a good console.

    Didn't get to watch it live with my bro as we often did in years past, but we both summoned up the courage to avoid looking at our phones so we could watch it with fresh eyes together... ...and it did NOT disappoint. The new Smash characters, expected a Dragon Quest rep and I'm surprised it took until Ultimate for it to happen but they're really going to town with it. Banjo Kazooie is something that I always felt was possible but never would throw down a bet on it happening. You can't imagine the smile on my face when I saw that Jiggy fly across the room near the start of the trailer. Also, genius move reusing the K.Rool troll trailer especially because it introduced playable versions of characters from the days when Nintendo and Rare were together. Luigi's Mansion 3 looks incredibly cool. I got similar vibes watching this trailer as I did when the first game was about to hit Gamecube. I don't know how to describe it, I just want to play it. Link's Awakening looks awesome. Glad that we got a more extensive look at everything and it's just cool how there's so much they managed to retain of the GB original despite the new tech on display versus the Gameboy days. Dampe's Dungeon Designer thing is gonna get so much use. Probably the closest we'll ever get to an official Zelda maker, but I'm not complaining. Witcher 3...even with all the rumors I wasn't prepared to actually see it let alone it being a complete edition and not a port of the vanilla Witcher 3. I was impressed by this announcement. Trials of Mana Remake and Collection of Mana... Krazy and I LIVED for this one-two punch and if it weren't for me waiting on my replacement credit card to arrive in the mail I would have bought Collection of Mana right after the Direct. Either way, we're getting both of these, especially now that SD3 is finally seeing localization after all these years; how could we not!? No More Heroes 3... I honestly didn't even know what I was looking at until Travis appeared. I kind of had an inkling because when he walked out the front door I got vibes of the No More Heroes Hotel he stayed at. But then things got crazy and I knew then...we were in Suda51's world now. It looks so fresh, so clean. Fire Emblem Three Houses is more m bro's thing for the most part. Can't wait to watch him and see what it's all about though especially after this trailer offering up so much more exposition than we had before. Resident Evil 5 and 6...I mean, that's cool that Capcom are bringing these and in particular I never played RE6, though even back then I never really had the desire to. I'm just curious what they plan on pricing it at considering the wacky prices they've been doing. Honestly, Capcom's support has been really blah for Switch for the most part. Yeah, they're bringing games but it's almost like there's no intent to want throttle what they can bring. Like, why port Devil May Cry 1 HD and not the entire remaster pack plus DMC4 like they've done elsewhere? Just DMC HD? But whatever, I've ranted on this enough in the past about Capcom's approach. Animal Crossing, this game looks so friggin clean. But more importantly, they're really revamping a lot of the stuff you can do especially since it seems like you're building up a town from nothing more or less. I wonder how much more extensive things will be now that some element of crafting is coming in along with a lot of other QOL-esque features that should make customization and personalizing aspects of your town so much easier. Astral Chain, from today's trailer I'm sure if I thought about it hard enough I could peg what this story will eventually turn into...then again it is Platinum Games so who's to say? That aside I really want to give this game a try. I really like the idea behind the action combat system and considering what Platinum is known for with their games I'm curious to see how quickly things can get crazy. Daemon X Machina, I really wish a trailer like this was how the game was first presented because I feel like they did themselves no favors by rolling out very little of the game bit by bit until now. This most recent trailer has all of my curiosity and it looks like there will more variety in terms of variety, enemy types and situations you can find yourself in. Pokemon Sword and Shield, the new trailer they showed is a fantastic design! Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. I was already sold on it but today's trailer just makes it that much more obvious. More characters, more villains, more scenarios with different characters...just more everything with this trailer. I've never even heard of the woman with the trench coat and the two guns, Elsa Bloodstone, but she looks pretty great. Panzer Dragoon remake!? Out of NOWHERE!! That was a shocking surprise! Breath of the Wild sequel... ... ... ... ...what in the world!? I would have been fine if the direct ended on the Banjo in Smash reveal but to follow up and bring this was the cherry on top of an ice cream cone that is balancing on another cherry that is topping yet another ice cream cone. I figured that they would do something with all that work they put into Breath of the Wild into another project eventually but I wasn't expecting it this soon. Especially in a year when we're getting Link's Awakening and a Legend of Zelda themed indie title. Nintendo had E3 in the bag well before this point, now they were just planting the flag to remind everyone else who was here.

    Mortal Kombat 11 Review

    It's been a while since Mortal Kombat graced a Nintendo system, but finally Nintendo fans can rejoin all of the bloody battles, bone-crunching hits, and gruesome fatalities that the series is known for. Mortal Kombat 11 adds a few new features to the franchise to keep the visceral action fresh and engaging, though the modern accoutrements unfortunately includes an emphasis on grinding in-game currency to unlock minor features in the game. The game features a full story mode that allows you to play as one or two characters in each chapter. The plot more or less picks up immediately after the events of Mortal Kombat 10 (though unfortunately the game doesn't feature any kind of recap of the story so far, which is especially a shame for players that only have a Switch). In short though, Raiden and the defenders of Earthrealm recently defeated Shinnok, the disgraced former Elder God of Death, but in doing so they've earned the hatred of Shinnok's mother, Kronika, the keeper of time. She uses her power to bring past and present versions of our heroes together in an attempt to create her own timeline, so now Raiden and company must unite to fight for their own reality. References to past games might sail right over Switch-owners' heads but regardless of your familiarity with these characters, the story mode features tons of crazy action cutscenes that are pretty fun to watch. The writing may not be much better than a soap opera at times (a soap opera featuring time travel and demonic beings, at least) but it's fun to indulge in some of the campiness and just enjoy the ride while it lasts. The gameplay in Mortal Kombat 11 is fundamentally unchanged since the franchise's origins and is extremely similar to the most recent entries: it's a 2.5D fighting game of 1v1 battles that emphasizes gruesome attacks and bloody fatalities—they're brutal but always satisfying to execute. Characters have a handful of combos and special attacks but there's tons of depth in learning all of the ins and outs of each character, enough to keep a player occupied with only one character for a long time. The flow of combat feels measured, not like the rapid chaos that can overwhelm match ups in Smash Bros., but the game is no less engaging for it. Precision over spamming feels like the name of the game here, and it helps acclimate new players to the action without reducing the intensity of each match. Mortal Kombat 11 introduces some new flashy moves such as Fatal Blows which are devastating cinematic combos that are only available to use once your health bar has dropped below 30%. These can also only be used once per match, so even when your health is low it's worth considering whether or not you're in an opportune time to use it. Fatal Blows represent not only Mortal Kombat's love of brutal attacks but also a great strategic element that can help the underdog in a match even things up. In addition to the story mode (which can be played on multiple difficulty levels) there are a couple of other single-player pursuits in Mortal Kombat 11. There are the Klassic Towers, essentially the familiar solo-play tournament progression of battling one enemy after another before facing off against Kronika, and the Towers of Time which introduces a random wacky effect to contend with such as increased enemy health or a barrage of projectiles to dodge. The chaos can be just as frustrating as it is entertaining but it does add a unique variability when you're tired of fighting the same AI battles over and over. There's also the Krypt, a third-person mode where you explore Shang Tsung's island to find treasure chests to unlock features like alternate costumes for characters and other customization items. Opening chests costs in-game currency, which is gradually amassed through normal gameplay. The rate can be excruciatingly slow based on how expensive the chests in the Krypt can be though, which makes the customization aspect of the game feel like an imbalanced grind. It wouldn't be a modern fighting game without an online mode as well, and Mortal Kombat 11 features a couple of options for battling online. There's a classic mode for jumping right into a match with another player, a ranked mode to put your skills to the test, and private rooms that you can set up just for playing with friends. For the most part the online matches are pretty smooth—not as fluid as offline but not so much that it significantly impacts the experience. The online community is decently populated as well so it's not too hard to find an opponent. But the downside to Mortal Kombat 11's online functionality doesn't even have to do with playing online, but rather trying to play offline. Due to the way the game continually registers your progress with unlocking items and earning currency online, you're locked out of certain solo modes if your Switch is not connected to the internet, e.g. when you're playing handheld on-the-go. Not being able to play solo modes while offline is obnoxious, especially given the Switch's handheld functionality. The game's visuals are an unfortunate reminder that this Switch edition simply isn't the most powerful and polished version of the game. The graphics can be gratingly low res at times, which is particularly noticeable during story mode as the game transitions from beautiful cutscenes to grainy in-game models. They're not terrible, but the muddier textures and grainy hair effects are undeniably noticeable. The game will even lag at times when there's a lot of effects on screen, such as during a Fatal Blow. On the brightside though the gameplay runs smoothly—during a match the lower resolution graphics never interfere with your attack inputs. It's still disappointing to see the lower quality visuals, but it's more important that the flow of gameplay is preserved. What's inexcusable though is the game's tendency to crash, whether playing a solo mode or online. Since it's a fighting game you thankfully rarely lose much progress but it's still an issue that pops up far too often. Mortal Kombat 11 is a great opportunity to jump back into the bloody action that has defined the series for decades, but this Switch version comes with some obvious issues, ranging from understandable lower-quality visuals to more frustrating problems like crashing or the necessity of an online connection to play solo modes. The base gameplay is still solid but the visuals are a constant, unfortunate remidner that you're playing an inferior version of the game. Rating: 7 out of 10 Fatalities

    There is the old nickname trick. I haven't tried it personally, but it's been reported that nicknaming an Eevee Linnea will get you one Leafeon evolution, while nicknaming an Eevee Rea will get you a Glaceon. And, like past nicknames, this reportedly works once. So keep that in mind, in case you want to save it for a shiny or an Eevee that appraises well.
