  1. Great matches tonight. I'm surprised I won a few. I didn't think Bowser Jr. would become my main in Smash Ultimate, but I guess I'll stick with him unless I want to mess around more. It helps me get some more practice in for Thursdays I guess. @TheBarkinHyena I was listening through @TKrazyO stream for a reaction to getting caught up on the rope. I wasn't sure how I landed it, but I thought it was funny to keep going until I got a little self-conscious. I didn't want to come across as dicking around too much.
  2. I should be available next week if there's a need for a sub. Sorry I didn't get to this topic sooner, haven't been near my laptop this week as I've been trying to keep myself as isolated as possible.
  3. Hopefully, I’ll be good to go by Thursday, so I can race on the new tracks with you all. Been dealing with Covid since Wednesday evening, so I wasn’t in the best condition for MK and Smash this week.
  4. Going with what's in Tour and with this being Wave 2, go with Koopa Troopa Beach 2, Choco Island 2 and Vanilla Lake 2. Nintendo may not name the tracks like that for the pass, but I think those will be the iterations they go for. Beyond SMK tracks, two city Tour tracks I think are locked in and I feel strongly about Daisy Cruiser being in Wave 2.
  5. I hope I won't be in the dark too much if I go ahead and play XC3 without beating 2, Torna and Future Connected...There is no possible way for me to beat any of them before Friday at this point, so I'll jump into XC3 with just the original under my belt. It seems Monolift Soft might have finally figured out undocked visuals, which I'm very excited about.
  6. This is my expectation now that most of July has passed and with Nintendo disappearing in June prior. Nintendo also doesn't have a game in August, so I'm thinking the week of August 22-26 which leads into the anniversary that Saturday the 27th is when Wave 2 releases.
  7. The more this gets mentioned, the more I see Nintendo doing something Nintendo and releasing Waluigi Pinball in a 2023 wave. Everyone I've seen comment on these waves wants that track. Every track from MKDS's Flower Cup (favorite single cup in MK) is on my wish list, so Desert Hills, Delfino Square and Waluigi Pinball (got Shroom Ridge, and it's my favorite track in MK8DLX). Nintendo will likely go with Tour's Waluigi Pinball, which unfortunately continues 7's hang glider launcher section....To me, it takes away from the visuals a bit when launching on to the table, but even with that Waluigi Pinball is probably my most wanted track for Deluxe. Beyond the DS Flower Cup tracks remaining, I really want to see Waluigi Stadium from Double Dash make a return and more tracks from Mario Kart 7. Piranha Plant Slide and Music Park are my least favorite tracks from 7 and they're already in Deluxe, so it's only up from there for that game in my opinion. More of 7's tracks need to break free from that lack of single player VS. That omission prevented 7 from being the best Mario Kart, because I do believe it has the best track selection.
  8. If you see any screenshots you like, you're welcome to use them for any of the videos. I have been thinking about putting clips on Twitter too from these sessions, but want to look into tags for that. Do we know who runs the @MyNinfora page? I might tag that account and hashtag everything else.
  9. A couple of these sequels this year I'm backed up on with previous entries. I'm in the middle of Bayonetta I think, and haven't even touched Bayonetta 2. I have played and beaten The Wonderful 101 since putting down Bayonetta, so I am a little more use to the repetition and style of game Bayonetta is. For me, Naive Angel Mode definitely makes Bayonetta 3 even more of a must have game. The fact that they felt the need to create a censored mode means that they're pushing the boundaries with the fan service in this entry even more and I'm looking forward to that.
  10. I've got you and DL added, so I can join in later if that's still the plan.
  11. Great races Thursday, and finally had the chance to race again on Shroom Ridge during these sessions! I'm hoping next week we'll have eight new tracks to race on, but who knows.
  12. Do you have a time in mind? I'm fine with 10pm on which ever day the next wave releases.
  13. @purple_beard I believe I can play and watch Krazy's stream. Do I just need to go to the Discord for the arena ID?
  14. I think the Final Destination was turning up from EA's selection. Smash isn't really my thing, just think there's a bit too much going on, but I knew a couple of regulars weren't participating so I decided to join in. That might have been the most fun experience I've had with Smash Ultimate between @TKrazyO's stream and the matches themselves. I'm not sure what the max number of players are for an arena room, but if there's room for one more I would be down for more. Does everyone join once they see the arena ID on stream or is it usually on Discord before appearing live?
  15. After four Normal, two Hard and a Dread Mode run, I now have gotten all the unlocks for the game. Practicing in the Boss Rush got me warmed up to go for the elusive Zero Suit Samus ending that I've been wanting for a while. Hard Mode was first as I figured if I got under the best time condition there it should be no problem to repeat for Normal Mode. My best times are above for both difficulties. Metroid Dread isn't in the sweet spot that both Hunters and Super are in, usually ending runs in around or less than 90 minutes, but it's also still relatively new. My eighth run is going to be in Rookie Mode, which really is the only aspect of the game I haven't gone through yet. Started the run last night to get to the Quiet Robe cutscene which I feel clarifies the Kraid timeline. With the way the bosses went in Dread Mode, I was worried that I was going to struggle more than I did in Dread Rush. In Dread Mode, had Bombs and Screw Attack for Kraid and Escue respectively, but they are not in Samus's arsenal for Dread Rush. In spite of being the biggest obstacle, I really liked the Escue encounter without the Screw Attack under Dread difficulty conditions. That, Golzuna and Twin Robot Chozo Soldier got a lot more appealing as I completed Dread Rush and went for new personal records in Boss Rush. Regarding how natural the environments are on ZDR, not every region freezes up from the system block in Cataris. Dairon, Ghavoran, Elun, Ferenia and Hanubia don't show the impacts that occur to Artaria, Burenia and Cataris during that event when viewing them via the global map. It seems that Ghavoran, Ferenia and Hanubia do have naturally developed ecosystems or are located within such areas of the planet, and they trickle down to Dairon which is where it seems most of the experiments on ZDR occur. Experiments from Dairon and whatever may be not native (not sure what is and isn't) then go down to the artificial environments of Artaria, Burenia and Cataris. The Mawkin have Kraid bound on ZDR before the Mawkin-X crisis begins, which occurs after their return from SR388. They have Kraid before the events of Metroid II/Samus Returns, so if the Mawkin did go to Zebes for Kraid or a sample of it wasn't during the events of Super Metroid. I still believe that Kraid's origin is ZDR, specifically from the Ghavoran region and was moved down to Cataris as an experiment. The alternative is that the Mawkin had an arrangement with Mother Brain and the Space Pirates on Zebes. That requires more mental gymnastics, because I don't see the two groups working together...but it could explain somethings from Super Metroid that we encounter. The Torizo for instance and the dead body outside of Kraid's room could be a Mawkin soldier. If they did work with Mother Brain though, it would need to be before Raven Beak decided to...basically have the same idea of having Metroids as a bioweapon and during a period when the Metroid operations weren't active on Zebes (it's implied that Raven Beak saw SR388 as his only option for Metroids until Samus's successful vaccination). I don't think the two groups would work with each other, and think it's easier to imagine Kraid being native to ZDR while Mother Brain also has data on the species as to create the ideal ruler for Brinstar. Federation Force's take on Sylux is very interesting to me and sets up a very deadly antagonist for Prime 4 even without the newly hatched Metroid, which itself should be larger than usual. I'm glad that Federation Force only showed a part of the overall model in-game, enough to draw the conclusion that it is Sylux. If they had gone with the full model, it would be the mystery ship from Corruption all over again...and I think the mystery ship has a stronger association with Sylux than the Federation Force model. Initially when I saw the model, I didn't believe what I was seeing due to the helmet. I'm so use to Sylux's helmet design in Metroid Prime Hunters, but after thinking about the model design I love it because of the potential being set up. I do hope Prime 4 uses that for the character to an extent, both that Federation Force model and the potential that it further sets up.
