  1. The Nintendo Direct prestation celebrates it's 10th anniversary today! What are your favorite Nintendo Direct moments? I'd have to agree with GX's pic for the best ND moment. It's was really cool that The Jim Henson Co. did Muppets of Iwata, Miyamoto, and Reggie. It still blows my fucking mind that Robot Chicken did one of Nintendo's Digital Events for E3. Robot Chicken X family friendly Nintendo. WHAT?!!!! O_O My favorite moment has to be the one where Bill is in the elevator and Reggie tells Bill over the intercom to get his body ready for a ND. Then Bill is like but, this an elevator." Then Reggie responds "Yes. I have that power. You can not escape me Bill." Even though it's not a ND, this has to be my favorite video that NOA put out (see spoiler below). Reggie's bad acting in this is so good!!!!! Also, don't forget that time Reggie randomly fired Bill. *IIRC, this was done by Mega 64* A huge thanks to Iwata for making what these Nintendo Directs what they are. R.I.P. Iwata-san. T_T
  2. New patch out (mostly for the Switch version) and entering the code to get the secret stage is now fixed on Switch... Wow, they fixed a lot on Switch. I was unaware of the sleep mode issue. Hopefully we don't have to wait too long for a full fix. Also, nice to see they are aware of some of the frame rate issues and will fix it in the next patch.
  3. Here's something cool I came across... When playing the the Stratosphere stage, depending on the time on day, you'll get different music... I was wondering why this stage had different music when I was playing over the weekend. Before I've only ever played this stage after 7pm, so I was surprised when this stage didn't have the song "So They Say". It's really cool that this stage has different songs depending on the time of day you play it, but I wish there was also a way to choose which song plays when choosing the stage (like holding a button when selecting the stage, for example).
  4. I'm not going to make it Thursday. I have to get up early the next day to go out of town for reasons I mentioned (sort of) last week. For anyone wondering... As much as I'd love to play MK64 online with you guys, I'm not getting the NSO EP. I don't feel it's worth more than 2x the price of the base membership.
  5. I got 39th in this week's Weekend Ritual (I was 22nd when I went to bed)... I'm surprised I made the top 100. Though I think that's because most of these people are on Switch. Players on other platforms are most likely way done with doing Weeked Rituals. BTW, I noticed when looking at the Weekend Ritual leaderboard that when filtering by "My Score" or "Friends" in says NO DATA. IDK if this a bug in the Switch version or what...?
  6. This weekend's Weekend Ritual modes... Ooo...NICE! We get to unlock a Rez∞ avatar. BTW, The Weekend Ritual is a great way to unlock more avatars, especially rare avatars. If the community goal is met before the event is over, rare avatars are more likely to drop (I assume only in the current Weekend Ritual modes).
  7. Not mentioned in the Direct, the NookLink app (available via the NSO mobile app) will be getting an update... 🔗https://www.nintendo.co.jp/switch/acbaa/portal/index.html New features include: New items to spend Nook Points on An article posted every day that will tell you about seasonal information, events, turnip price fluctuation records, etc. Island 101 app Happ Home Paradice app
  8. For anyone getting the N64 controller, it WILL have rumble... 🔗https://store.nintendo.com/nintendo-64-controller.html BTW, the N64 controller is already out of stock (the SEGA GEN controller is still up). So, how many of these are already on ebay for 3x the price?
  9. For that price I could add another year to my base membership and continue playing online. :-/
  10. Yeah, I'm wondering this as well. I'd assume you'd just get it for free if you get a year of the Expansion Pack, but I wouldn't be surprised if you lose access to it when your EP sub is runs out. This is Nintendo after all. Also, I wonder how much of a discount curent NSO members will get? I know they said it's based on the days remaining, but I just upped my sub for 2022 in Sept.
  11. A $30 increase for the NSO Expansion Pack? OOPH!! Yeah, I will definitely won't be upgrading. To be fair... If they keep adding to the Expansion Pack this could become worth it in the future. Though, I ain't holding my breath. I hate having to pay for online in the first place! $20 a year is like the most I'd pay for it (given I have to). I just hope they don't forget about the base membership and continue to add to it.
  12. WOW! Version 2.0 did not disappoint. Lost of new features a QoL enhancements coming. ^_^ Though, I can't help but fell all of this is a bit too late, because I feel most people have moved on. Will this bring people back? ...And for how long? Interesting that HHD2 is paid DLC in NL. Not sure if I'll get it (I didn't get HHD on 3DS), but cool to have it there nonetheless.
  13. IDK if I'm gonna make it tonight, because I'm not doing so good right now. All this extends from 2020 going out in the shittiest possible way for me and my family.Though, I feel like playing some MK would help a bit, so I'll try to make it if I can. BTW, anyone want to do a Tetris theme (for Tetris Effect recently launching on Switch) and/or an Animal Crossing theme (for the big AC:NL Direct tomorrow)? Tetris Theme: Race as a Yoshi or Shy Guy in one of the 7 tetrimino colors. AC Theme: Race as Villager or Isabelle.
  14. Yeah, it took awhile for me to find players in Connected Mode and it was release night of the Switch version when I was playing. I heard Coss-Play had issues on other platforms when it launched back in Aug., so it could be a bug. Also, if you want to play Connected Mode, you can always play with the CPU in Local Matches or just see if anyone here wants to play. ...But yeah... There should be more players, especially since the Connected update went to all other platforms (Non-Microsoft platforms) when the game launched on Steam on Aug. 18th. BTW, I came across this...
  15. Hmmm... I interested as to what PokéStop functionalities will be added...
