  1. What I said was mostly me giving my general perspective on the situation, but sure I can provide a list of why I think that way. Here’s a possible list of strengths in no particular order: - Leon is an absolute boss. Furthermore, he has much more presence than some of the champions from previous generations (Diantha, Alder, and Iris were all laughably underdeveloped; and obviously an avatar-intended character like Alola’s playable character is by nature personality-less). I also genuinely struggled with fights against him sometimes which is more than I can say of ANY Ch
  2. Maybe, but I have a couple thoughts on that. 1) My son loved Pokémon Sword and Shield and really connected with the characters and even the story-lite to some degree. He gets easily bored by some things and does not like everything I play with him, so it’s really not just a matter of “kids’ll lap up anything”. I think that says something if it can actually bring in some interest for the next generation. 2) To be honest, I have replayed Sword and Shield a lot more than you would expect. And every time I replay it, I appreciate a lot of the choices they make a lot more th
  3. That’s a pretty standard practice, with intellectual property law, actually. I’m not saying it’s necessarily the best, but realistically speaking if they create all the assets and the tools, in many cases they can legally own the finished project. I mean, I really don’t think tools like this (or others like RPG Maker) are meant to be seen as belonging to the player for the most part (outside things like story and scenario). The main appeal is helping would-be hobbyists and maybe future professionals break into the field.
  4. You have a lot more seniors/older adults on average, right? It makes sense that AZ distribution would specifically be taxed, given the national recommendations for who should receive what vaccine (as in, generally older adults have the smallest of the already pretty small risk for AZ). As I said, we cannot pick which mRNA we can receive at all, here. Our “choice” is “wait until you’re called up to apply for one of the vaccines given out by the health unit” or “wait until your local pharmacy/health provider has a stock of AZ and your age group is green-lit to get it”.
  5. Why would there be a Direct on the horizon? E3 is only about a month away, right? I would suspect this is a Labo-like project that is being rolled out in a similar fashion, so them randomly announcing it isn’t that surprising I don’t think. I am cautiously optimistic for this thing. I am suspicious that this is just a development tool dabbling kind of thing, so probably won’t do very much fancy stuff. But we will see.
  6. The maritime provinces have had a generally better rollout than a lot of the other provinces. In Ontario it’s been a slow drip-feed, and you take what’s available that day if you’re going through the health unit. It’s also a tightly controlled list of people allowed to sign up for the mRNA ones, for some reason (probably a supply issue). But if you’re cool with Astrazeneca, you could just go into many Ontario pharmacies at this point and get the shots (for adults). But even then there’s a supply pressure so getting one is not guaranteed, and there’s been all sorts of frust
  7. My understanding is Mario had been calling out for Luigi after the recent update, prior to the announcement anyway. I just updated my Mario and he has been silent, so appears this has stopped.
  8. What did you think of Bowser’s Fury (assuming you did that already)?
  9. That’s Steve Buscemi saying that, right? I’ve seen that quote in, like, two or three videos on YouTube lately.
  10. The Arceus game totally came out of left field. The potential there is staggering. I’m a bit meh on the DP remakes but the Legends game surprisingly excites me.
  11. I don’t know about most of whatever they were going on about in the video (the discussion was pretty sporadic), but certainly I can agree that this is a good excuse to test out a potential 3D Mario evolution in a less committal way than a full-fledged game. With that said, I can definitely see this spawning a new open world Mario game, but honestly with Nintendo’s track record, I think calling it a “direction” would be too generous. It seems to me pretty arbitrary what game mechanics stick for more than one iteration and which just kind of get thrown to the side after one go. They exp
  12. I “beat” Bowser’s Fury last night. It’s pretty fun running around in an open world again and fighting Bowser as Giga Cat Mario is pretty fun, too.
  13. Yes, you can soft reset if unsuccessful. But are your Chocobos sufficiently trained via the races? You need to pass a certain threshold there before you can get the proper Chocobo.
  14. I know he’s popular these days but I don’t think I have ever heard any of his songs before. Should probably see if I can even stand him before thinking about attending a concert, but that’s pretty neat. Would be nice if they put some of this marketing budget of theirs into building better games, but I guess that’s beating a dead horse now...
