    Splatoon 2 demo out

    That should be the case, as Switch game cards are read only. They don't write any save data to them like DS/3DS game cards.
  2. Cuphead on Switch and Nintendo letting indie devs use their IPs?
  3. Cadence of Hyrule was definitely a surprise! My reaction... Me: That eye on that door (the one at the beginning) looks very Zelda like. Me: That music sounds a lot like the Zelda theme. Me: Is Nintendo really gonna let them rip-off the Zelda theme? Nintendo: *Zelda and Link reviled & Tal Tal Hights starts playing* Me:

    Splatoon 2 demo out

    I already, have the game, but I had my little bro download the demo and it has a lot more content than I was expecting. It has all the online multiplayer modes (even play with friends who have the full ver), you can buy gear/weapons, take pics with amiibo, etc. Basically what it doesn't have is any of the single player modes, plus local wireless and you also can't order gear from other players or get gear from an amiibo (special/saved). It should be noted that you need an active NSO membership to play the demo. However, you can just activate the free 7-day trail. Though, what if you have already used your free trial? Don't worry! If you download the demo Nintendo will send you a code for another free 7-day trial! It seems like they are really trying to get people sign-up for NOS with this demo, since they are requiring a free trial of NSO. Makes since they'd do this with one of their most popular online games, since their service didn't go over that well. I think they said less that half of Switch owners signed up for NSO. BTW, I noticed that in the plaza, there all these messages from people who own the full game that are welcoming all the newcomers with this demo. ^_^

Pokémon GO is a mobile game from Nintendo, The Pokémon Company, and developed by Niantic Labs that let players go out in the real world and catch Pokémon. The game uses various geo-cached points in which a Pokémon may appear at. Depending on where you are/live different Pokémon will appear. Ex: Water Pokémon will appear near rivers, lakes, and oceans. During their journey, players will come across Poké Stops, in which they can collect free items and gyms in which they can battle at (*Note* battling is very basic and is not to be expect to be like the in main Pokémon games). In a future update players will be given the ability to trade with others. For a good idea of how the game works, Check out Nintendo's E3 discussion with the devs of the game (see spoiler below). *Note game requires Internet (mobile data/Wi-Fi) and location services* More Screens: http://imgur.com/a/WKiC2 Pokémon GO Plus is a device created by Nintendo that lets players enjoy the game while freeing their eyes from their phone. The device connects to your phone via low energy Bluetooth and will flash and vibrate when a Pokémon or Poké Stop is near by, so you can catch Pokémon or collect items without the need to use your phone. *Please Note* Pokémon GO Plus currently only uses Poké Balls and when connected, will enable the game to run in the background. With the game running in the background you can do other things on your phone or turn the screen off, while still being notified of nearby pokémon, PokéStops, and track your distance.

  6. Looks like Adventure Sync will be getting a new feature.... In the latest update, a dataminer has found mention of Adventure Sync being able to send you notifications of nearby PKMN. I can see this being pretty useful, but I can also see it being very annoying. Let's say your in a place that has quite a bit of spawn points (Ex: shopping centers/malls), nobody wants to get spammed every 5 secs as their walking around. Hopefully they have something in place to prevent this (Maybe like how GO+ works with notifying you of PKMN?). Also, it would be nice if GO+ could work with this as well, since you can have it connect it to your phone (via Bluetooth settings) without the using the app. Example: You'd get a notification of a PKMN nearby from adventure sync on your phone as well as GO+. Then you can quick look at your phone and decide if you want to use GO+ to catch the PKMN or the app. Now, if this is indeed possible, then they should also let you spin PokéStops with GO+ without needing the app open in the BG. This would make GO+ much more useful! Especially, after Adventure Sync killed the usefulness of it a bit, by not needing the device to track steps while the app is running with BG. Seriously, If they are going to keep adding feature to Adventure Sync that make GO+ less useful, they need add features like I mentioned to make GO+ still useful. Since Adventure Sync launched, I haven't been using my GO+ mas much (mainly using it to farm PokéStops). I mean they still want people to buy the device right? If Adventure Sync is going to pretty much become a built-in GO+, then why would people want to buy it?
  7. I'm not really a fan of game streaming services, since you need a pretty decent internet connection to use them. It's cool that they're doing this via Chrome which is on everything, but when using the service on the go (via tablet, phone, etc.), a decent enough internet connection isn't always easy to come by. I like how they are integrating YouTube streaming in to the service and how they are supporting all major controllers from the current gen console manufactures. It's nice to be able to hop right in without needing to buy a special controller. This service looks to be doing some cool things, but until the internet infrastructure is better in places like the U.S., where everyone can easily have access to a decent enough internet connection to use the service without any issues, I don't see game streaming services really taking off. It's going to be interesting to see how Microsoft steps up to plate with their xCloud service. Here's the full keynote for anyone that missed it...
  8. I'm really hoping Tetris Effect gets announced for Switch. 🤞 I mean they did announced Lumines Remastered last year during the March Spring Nindes Showcase, so... Seriously, this game needs to come to all platforms already. IDK, if Sony has it as a timed exclusive or not, but I know this will sell incredibly well on the Switch. Enhance Games has said that Lumines Remastered has sold best on Switch "by a mile". If you haven't noticed, puzzle games and portables are pretty much made for each other and given how popular the Switch is, this could end up out selling the PS4 version (if it comes to Switch). MAKE THIS A THING ALREADY! >_<

UPCOMING EVENTS: 🏆 Maximus Cup - 3/8 to 3/10 (Win Gold My Nintendo points!)... PAST EVENTS: ---------------------------------------------------------------- Did anyone download this yet? I played a few rounds and the highest I placed so far was 20th and most KOs I had in one match was 5. I'm still trying to wrap my head around this with being able to have multiple people attack you at once and being able to switch who you're attacking on-the-fly. So far this game seems very bare-bones right now. No tutorial/how to play, only one mode. can't play with friends, no offline practice, no unlockables, etc. It seems like Nintendo just ripped a smaller online mode out of a larger Tetris game and gave it to NSO members for free. However, there is an EXP meter witch will increase your level as you play, but IDK if your lvl even matters. Can others even see your level? I noticed it says Ver. 1.0.0 on the main menu, so it seems like Nintendo plans to regularly update this. I'd really like to see some of the things mentioned above add to the game, because I'm really digging battle royale Tetris...As crazy of a concept as that is.
  10. I played a few rounds after our Mario Kart Night last night and the best I manged to do was 2nd twice. Each time I was K.O.ed by someone who had more badges than me (still having that issue I mentioned above where I'm not get badges). Other times, this...

    General movie discussion

    Ok. I haven't seen Infinity War since it came out in theaters last year, so my memory is a bit rusty. Yeah it does. In the teaser there are some scenes that are pretty much shot-for-sort of the animated movie. I have very high hopes for this and really hope they go all out, because The Lion King is Disney's best animated film, IMO. The music, animation, story, etc...It's all outstanding! I not really a fan of all there's live action remakes. Supposedly, they are working on a Mulan live-acton movie, which out of all the Disney animated films, I feel this would work the best as a live-action movie, if done right. Just get the guys who worked on the Pirates of the Caribbean on board and we'd be good. Also, I feel like Tarzan could also work very well if they get everyone who worked on the live-action The Jungle Book involved. That movie is actually pretty good, and the CG is fantastic. If they do end up making a Tarzan, they gotta get Phil Collins back to do the music. Tarzan is the only other Disney animated film, that I feel comes close to matching that Lion King feel (production wise), with it's music, animation, story, etc. So, since they are doing a live-action Lion King, I feel they gotta do a live-action Tarzan.

    General movie discussion

    I'm not sure what to think about that Avengers trailer, as I feel I'm totally missing something. Didn't all the Avengers that were in the last movie die? Yet in this trailer, they show that some have already been revived and have to save the others with the Avengers that weren't in the last movie. Of course, we all know they aren't dead for good, but it just seems kind of spoilery to show who are the first ones to be revived in the trailer. Yeah, I'm obviously missing something here. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This was released a few days ago... I gotta say this looks way better than I was expecting after seeing the teaser trailers. I really like the look. Though, I'm still not 100% feeling Will Smith as the Genie. He could end up being way better than I expected. When you really think a bout it, it seems like he would be a good fit. I think the main reason I'm not fully on board is, because no one can replace Robin Williams (If only he could have been in this. T_T). Aladdin looks great! Jasmine looks great! ...But Jafar? WHAT?! I feel they totally missed the make with casting him (looking at the comments, it seems I'm not the only one). The main issues I have with him is 1. I'm pretty sure Jafar isn't supposed to the same age as Aladdin and Jasmine. 2. This actor comes off as like the least threatening person for a villain. I feel they should have at least found an actor who's much older and has a deeper voice. Ehhhh.... Maybe he'll end up being better, but I doubt it. Other that that, everything else seems pretty good so far.
  13. A bunch of classic Nintendo and other video game cartoons are available to stream for FREE and legally on YouTube. Some of the cartoons, include the Super Mario Cartoons, The Legend of Zelda, Captain N, Mega Man, some Sonic cartoons, Double Dragon, etc. Link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUVnfQaEmCIhFZC5d_JniyQ/playlists Mega Man Here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8Qz20sPciU-ynMRdKtJw-A/videos OMG this is awesome! I haven't seen some of these before as they were a bit before my time (90's kid). I guess I know what I'm doing this weekend..
  14. Google will be adding support for the for the Joy-Con controllers (L, R, L +, R, and USB charge grip) and the Switch Pro Controller (USB and Bluetooth) to Google Chrome... For anyone that has out of the loop with what has been going on with Google, apparently they're making a MAJOR push in to the gaming market. A few months ago that had a beta to test their streaming service,where people got to test streaming AC: Odyssey via Google Chrome, which worked fairly well. Next week at GDC they have plans to announce what their newly established gaming division has been up to. Apparently they are going to show some kind of hardware along side their streaming service. It's unclear if it will be only a streaming/download box or will accept physical media, but they've sent out invites to all the major gaming press, so this points to something more than a streaming box/service. Also, SEGA is said to be heavily on board with some exclusives. Could Google become the 4th competitor in the console wars? Microsoft is making it easy for Google to just take over their spot, since they don't seem to worried about hardware anymore and just want their games on everything. I mean, they did just put HALO on Steam. Sorry to derail this thread and make it all about Google. If you want to know all the details about what Google is up to, check-out the videos HERE and HERE. So, as for the Switch controller support in Chrome... It makes since that they would want to support all major controllers on current systems, so anyone can just fire up Chrome and start using this game streaming service and not worry about needing a special controller. With Google prepping Chrome with various controller support just before the big GDC conference, it seems like this service might be launching in the near future.
  15. It wasn't really my find as I saw a post about the Mega Man cartoon being on YouTube on GoNintendo. Then I came across all their other content on their main channel.
  16. Thanks! The best I've actually done was 1st, but I just could't get a win in this past event, thanks to all the pros. I got damn close though! 15th is really good for someone who isn't much of a Tetris player! Though, I feel like this game does have a bit of luck factor with how many people attack you at once and how early on you get attacked. Games where I get attacked by multiple people (especially pros) early one, I'm lucky to get in to the Top 50. My main problem has been getting slammed with a B2B Tetris and then some, when I'm trying to set up a B2B Tetris (the garbage opening is always in the worst spot >_<) or trying to clear out blocks to get to the garbage. Also, I've been noticing that I'm not getting KOs when I attack people about to KOs. I'll send them a Tetris and they will KO, but I won't get the KO. IDK if it's because multiple people are attacking the same person as me and some got a finishing attack in before I did, or what. It seems every time I get into the Top 10, I get wrecked by someone who has full badges (100% attack power) while I have hardly any or none. I'm starting to think I'd like this game better without the badges/increased attack power.
  17. SP NES game for this month...
  18. Finally after months of bug fixes, Niantic fixed the ATTK power numbers not showing up on the smaller iPhone SE screen with the latest update, as well as fixed the moves not showing up in the previous update. 🎉🎊 \(^o^)/ I guess I should have reported this sooner. I know other iPhone SE users have reported this issue, but I bet the moves not showing up finally got them to look into this.
  19. That's actually possible given how many people where attacking you and how fast people can play. Most likely multiple people were firing off B2B tetrises. The half + matrix full of garbage that was sent to me was all sent by one person in like 5 secs after the match started.
  20. It's kinda hard to tell if people are hackers or if they're just really good, since it docent show the other players in real time. Though, I have been sent half a matrix full of garbage + a Tetris back-to-back within like 5 secs of a match starting during this even't, which made me question hacking. I know some pros can play un-humanly fast, but an All Clear (I assume it is...?) and a Tetris that fast at the start of a match? Hmmm...
  21. Thanks! Though, I'm just a little bummed I didn't get a win, especially since I've already proven I can do it. If the event lasted a bit longer I could have eventually done it. Like I previously mentioned, I still did damn good despite not getting a win. Oh...I noticed when looking at my stats, I managed to break my KO record of 7 during this event with 10 KOs. Just watch, I'll get on after the event ends and get a win in my first game, now there aren't so many pros out. LOL!
  22. Well, here's the best I could do this event... I've been playing so much Tetris this weekend that I've literally been getting the "Tetris Efect" I just couldn’t compete with all those pros, even though I was playing some of my best Tetris ever (I noticed my game getting a bit better). I started to get in a groove tonight where I kept firing off back-to-back tetrises, but that still wasn't enough. If there wasn't an even't going on, I most likely could have gotten another win, hell maybe even two. I managed to get another 2nd in this event, where it was down to me and one other person. I noticed that it was taking a while for him to KO me and though, but come to find out he was setting up a B2B Tetris. I was like "Damn! That was mean! T_T" All he had to do to KO me was get a couple doubles/triples, but no, he had to be a show off. >_> I probably could have held him back a bit more so he couldn't have pulled-off a B2B tetris, but at the speed there was now way I was gonna set up a tetris with the blocks I was getting. Still, in the back of my mind I can't help but wonder if a good chunk of these so call "pros" were just hackers. With 999 gold My Nintendo points on the line, which can be used for $10 in Switch eShop credit, I would not be surprised if there were quit a bit of hackers. Seriously, if I find proof of hackers during this even't I'm gonna be pissed and demand Nintendo at least give me that badge for winning for coming in 2nd twice (not sure if it stays after the event) or something. I really hope the next event doesn't require you to get the most wins, because with all the pros out, it's it ruins the event a bit constantly getting hammered by them. Now if they also counted any medal position (1st, 2nd, & 3rd) you earned, it wouldn't fell as bad getting hammered by all the pros the whole event. If it's going to be like this every event, where pros dominate and make it hard for no-pros to compete, then F these events! ------------------------------------------------------------- So, this during this event I got... 🥈2nd: 2x 🥉3rd: 1x - 4th: 4x - 5th: 3x Even though I didn't get a win, I still feel I did damn good, given how stiff the competition was with all the pros being out! ^_^
  23. Story of my night (best of the night 4th)... EDIT: So, it has come to my attention that skill based matching isn’t good for BR games. Though, I’m playing some of the best Tetris I ever played in this event, but it’s not enough to take on the pros. I’m damn determined to get 1 win this event, but after last night I’m not sure how likely that is any more. ——————————————————- Gonna leave this here... R.I.P. non-pros. T_T
  24. Around 8pm is when I got 3rd. Yeah, It'd be easier when less people are on. I'm gonna play some more tonight when my Switch finishes charging. BTW, I did get put into a game with only 17 people (including me) and the rest CPUs (see spoiler), but for some reason I totally F'd up at the start and couldn't recover from the shitty stack I was making. >_< I probably could have won that game too. Thanks! ^_^
  25. Still have yet to get a win. Every time I get in to the top 20 the pros destroy me. However, I have made it in to the top 10 quite a few times. I think the main problem is I'm too busy fending off attackers early on to go and get any badges. All was not lost, though....I managed to get my first 2 All Clears, with the 2nd one being a Tetris All Clear. DAT SHIT IS HARD TO DO!
