    General movie discussion

    Well, since they are delaying the movie, SONIC BETTER LOOK LIKE SONIC! The writing is still going to be what it is, but if they just make Sonic look like Sonic, it won't be a complete shit-show. Valentine's Day, Eh? 😏
  2. Site: https://mariokarttour.com/en-US Release Date: Summer 2019 Price: FREE (In-app purchases) Why is it that Nintendo's mobile game always get "pushed back"? Was anyone looking forward to this? ...I know this game was brought up recently during out Mario Kart nights. I'm really interested to what they do with this, because it could be a fun mini Mario Kart to play when all you have with you is your phone. I still check-in on Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp every now and then. It's a fun mini AC to have while waiting for AC Switch.
  3. 😱😱😱😱 *VIEW AT YOUR OWN RISK!* This whole item rush thing when you get 3 of the same item in a row seems like it could be a bit game breaking. Seriously, blue shells should be excluded from this. 😒
  4. IDK. Are you some who hates playing against CPUs? I’ve never had any issues playing against CPUs in any of the portable MK games or console MK games for that matter. Now that I think of it, MK7 did have a mode where you could race against 7 other ghosts, so this is basically what it will be like in MK Tour. I think this way would be slightly better than racing against your just standard CPUs in MK Tour. I don’t get why people are making such a big deal over this. I get they should put a disclaimer or something, since it’s not real-time online and it makes it seem like it is real-time, but still. I think the main reason Nintendo is doing this is, because of the constant connection required for real-time online. Plus when on the go, they don’t want to eat-up people’s data plans when not near a Wi-Fi hotspot.
  5. Though, like they mentioned in the video, wouldn't this be something you'd want to test in a beta? I don't think the final release is going to have real-time online. Rather, I think it's just going to download data of how people last raced on that track (basically ghost data, but not a ghost). A few other mobile racing games have done this, like EA's Real Racing 3 for example.
  6. Nintendo has been really good about this in their other F2P games (once again bringing up FE Heroes and AC: Pocket Camp). They are constantly giving away free premium currency and if you play regularly, you shouldn't really feel pressured to buy premium currency. I still play AC: Pocket Camp and I have over 3K leaf tickets (that's even with using some to buy premium items) and haven't spent any money on the game. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

  9. Well, we all knew this was going to happen... Here's some leaked details, video, and screens from the beta (see tweet below)... Ugghhh!!!! Portrait instead of landscape? NINTENDO, WHY?! IDK, maybe it actually works better than landscape (I guess they love that one-handed play of Super Mario Run?)? Still, they should give the option for both. Also, auto-accelerate? Hmmm... 🤔 I really like how you can play online with others, but is there no offline? So, there's stamina, which limits how many races you can play in a given time? Hopefully this won't be too bad, as Nintendo has been really good with the F2P aspects of their F2P games. Just look at FE Heroes and AC: Pocket Camp for example. EDIT: Just watched the video... Damn, this looks so slow! Hopefully, that's just because of 50cc. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Uh, oh (see tweet below)... The gacha style of monetization works well for a game like FE Heroes, but I don't think it's all that great for something like Mario Kart. Having to unlock/pay for better kart pats doesn't seem all that great, especially with the online aspect of the game (not actually real-time online, BTW). Nintendo: Want to be the best at MK Tour? Gamer: YES! Nintendo: PAY UP, SON!!! $$$$ I really hope this isn't as bad as it sounds, because like I said, Nintendo has been really good with their F2P games. I going to just enjoy this game for what it is, a quick pick-up and play MK game that you can play for a few mins. for when you don't have your Switch/3DS with you. If I want more in-depth MK, I'd just play one of the other MK games on SNES, N64, GCN, GBA, DS, Wii, 3DS, Wii U, Switch (preferably MK8DX on Switch). ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Here's a look at the app icon for the game (final design may change upon release)...
  10. Site: https://tetris99.nintendo.com/ Price: Free for Nintendo Switch Online Members (Exclusive) The free to download online software, Tetris® 99, is available as a special offer for Nintendo Switch Online members. In large-scale, 99-player battles, it'll take speed, skill, and strategy to knock out the competition and become the last player standing. You can target opponents by sending them Garbage Blocks, but be careful…your rivals can target you back! Defeat opponents to acquire KO badges that may give you the advantage on future attacks. Survive the onslaught and look forward to upcoming online events! (FREE with NSO membership) (Big Block DLC* : Block DLC 1 - $9.99) (Big Block DLC* : Block DLC 1 - $9.99) *Big Block DLC "Season Pass" ($9.99) includes 2 modes, with more to be announced at a later date. NEW Modes Now Available!: UPCOMING EVENTS: 🏆 2nd Maximus Cup - 5/17 to 5/14 (Unlock a Game Boy Theme!)... 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.
  11. Caught this guy (or should I say gal, since it’s ♀) today (New PKMN)...
  12. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I wonder if they will announce if we are going to the that stylus pre-order bonus that the rest of the world is getting? Personally, I'd like it to just be included with all copies of the game. Also, I wonder if we're going to get that NSO bundle as well (Game plus 1-year subscription)? I've been on the fence about this game, as I've had more fun playing other's courses than making my own, but if the only way to get that stylus is via pre-order, I might just cave in. I might considerrd getting the NSO bundle (if its coming stateside) if it's cheaper than buying the game + a 1-year sub and save it for when my sub runs out in Sept.
  13. @The Krazy One CONGRATZ! I know you won't be allowed to give specifics, but be sure to let us know if its good and if it translates well to mobile, like how Fire Emblem does with FE Heroes.
  14. You had to earn at least 100 pts. In this past weekend’s event. Hopefully you were able to get it.
  15. I hope this isn’t the only way to get Leafeon and Glaceon.
  16. Got my shiny Torchic and Blaziken with Burn Blast. Also, caught a Lugia (New PKMN) from a Research Breakthrough!!!

    Same here. I went to 2 Walmarts and nobody knew anything thing about it. I really wanted that card too, since Bulbasaur fav PKMN. 😢 Oh, well...
  18. Hatched this guy today (new PKMN) *pic below* Also, I upgraded my iPhone SE to an iPhone 8. I loved the smaller size of that phone. I’m gonna miss the easy one handed use, especially for PKMN GO. Though the bigger screen on the 8 should be nice. Oh...and some kid today asked if I played PKMN GO. Nobody has asked me that since launch. He noticed my GO+ and wondered if I was the guy who kept attacking this gym he kept trying to put a PKMN in. Come to find out, where we both on team Mystic.
  19. First off, this is really weird seeing Sony partnering up with Microsoft, given how ant-cross play they've been. I guess they've see Nintendo and Microsoft being so buddy-buddy and starting to wonder if that could bit them in the ass down the road? IDK! Anyway, It seems Sony and Microsoft are a bit worried about Google's Stadia. Though, cloud gaming is never going to be the future until the internet infrastructure in places like the U.S. gets way better and everyone has access to the high enough internet speeds that are required for this. ...But yeah...Microsoft now buddy-buddy with Nintendo and Sony.

    I don't have Let's GO, so I didn't do the app thing. I just asked about it in the electronics section and they guy just let me have the poster and card without having to scan QR codes with the PKMN Pass app thing.
