  1. Never really played this series before. My bro got the demo on the Switch and I still need to give it a try but for what it's worth I like what I saw of his playthrough of the demo. I thought there was talk at some point of the original game being ported to Switch, too?

    So, a NSMBU+SLU rumor has surfaced....

    I agree that ports shouldn't be the headlining software of the system but I do think that there is an argument to be made for more games being carried over for two main reasons: 1) Giving them new life on a more successful platform which opens up an audience that didn't own a Wii U to quality titles they missed out on 2) The portable aspect of Switch has been a selling point that has in part been a boon for software in some cases As much as I'm looking forward to all of the new software coming from Nintendo and third parties I do still hold out hope that at least a few more Wii U releases will make their way over. I put a ton of time into Xenoblade Chronicles X and I do hope one day they make a sequel to that, but I'd have no problem dropping cash on a port of XCX to Switch and putting in a ton of time on it all over again. Or something like Tokyo MIrage Sessions. Sure, I wouldn't buy it again, but that was such a great game that was dragged down in the court of public opinion to a degree (I won't go into it here or anything) but as a result I'm sure there were many Wii U owners who didn't jump into it and missed out on a pretty great JRPG.

    So, a NSMBU+SLU rumor has surfaced....

    Giving people less of a reason to buy a Wii U? The Wii U isn't even in production anymore. Brand saturation has been an argument for the longest time when it comes to Mario games. This was especially true during the Gamecube days when people felt Nintendo relied on Mario too much and yet during the Wii's golden years when there were Mario games out the wazoo nearly every single one of those titles were million sellers or higher despite with each new title the brand was all over that system. The notion that porting over NSMBU/NSLU would kill the possibility of a new game in that entry (or some other approach) isn't really based on anything and that's assuming that this rumor comes to fruition. The games themselves may have sold less but in the bigger scheme of the platform's ecosystem those systems were better off having those sequels than not. Wii alone had multiple Mario titles and nearly all of them were million sellers and higher. In terms of traditional Mario titles, it was better off having Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and New Super Mario Bros. Wii rather than not having those titles. Super Mario Galaxy launched in 2007, NSBMWii in 2009 and less than seven months after that Super Mario Galaxy 2 and all of those titles were multi million sellers with the lowest, Super Mario Galaxy having sold well ahead of 6 million units. You're right, sometimes video games are more than numbers and dollars and that should be recognized in order to earn numbers and dollars later, but that viewpoint isn't nearly as narrow as you're painting it out to be judging from your "from a financial standpoint" assessment. Having that port is much better than not having it as Chrom has been suggesting and the reason being is that it's yet another title that Switch owners can have access to. If they already own the game on Wii U and choose not to buy it again (as many have done with respect to MK8Deluxe) then not having the game around wouldn't have change anything anyway. But for those gamers who do take an interest in it then it's better having that option if possible than not. Going back to your financial standpoint remark previously it stands to reason that the creation of a brand new game would be far more expensive than transferring a title where minimal work would be needed to make it available. And throughout it all there's nothing saying that a new title that come around eventually. After all, the Bayonetta 1+2 collection came to Switch and we're still expecting Bayonetta 3.
  4. You da real MVP, Surge! XD I wish I could say I planned for that shot turn out that way.

    LOL, yeah I was actually referring to that video. I hadn't seen it until recently though. I didn't realize it was already up as part of the blog updates.

    Sakurai does so much justice to these characters man. Dark Samus, its victory pose is basically lifted from the way it splits a clone of itself and then recombines later from Metroid Prime 3.

    Dark Souls + Amiibo got dated for 10/19/18

    Quite a bit removed from the original release date but glad to hear it's still on the way nonetheless.

    It has a lot of great games that I'm sure a lot of people didn't play because they didn't get the console. Doesn't hurt giving them a second chance a more successful platform if they can manage it especially when most of the work is already done. I'd just like to see them dip into some of the games that weren't already relatively big successes on the platform like Tokyo MIrage Sessions, for instance. So far much of what they're bringing over were already established successes.
  9. I'll be in for tonight's races. I won't out and about this time! Hope everyone can show up and show out for tonight, too!

    Technically, he could be if you make a Mii of him. Well, more or less I suppose.

    That's the first time I've heard that DK arrangement. MAAAAAN, it's incredible how some of the tunes in Smash are remixed. That's gonna be an awesome tune to battle to! I'm also hoping they do a remix of DKC2's Hot Head Bop and the Boss Theme. Also, whatever the song is called that plays in the honeycomb levels in DKC2 as well.
  12. It's insane how deep this rabbit hole may have gone. I don't blame IGN at all for pretty much going scorched earth on nearly everything Muicin touched considering how so much of his work is being found to have potentially been derived or lifted wholesale from other sources. The initial Dead Cells review was bad enough but something like this pretty much paints him as a high risk liability for any job or career path in which he ha to manage any kind of critical or editorial role. I almost wonder that if he never challenged anyone to find more examples of work he may have pillaged would things have gotten this far. He basically tied himself up to his own pyre and burned himself at the stake.
  13. Now that I think about it, the idea of a game based around water guns makes me think back to Water Warfare. Never got into that game on WiiWare unfortunately, but it just popped into my head now when I was thinking about this thread again.

    Yeah, I'm of the same mindset about Rex not making it in. The fact that the game is the best selling of the series thus far is the only thing I have to go on as it being a possibility but it's not the sure thing I'd like it to be. With that said, I did kind of like the idea I've read elsewhere of possibly having Elma from Xenoblade Chronicles X. Her fighting style could be based on two modes of play you can switch between, melee attacks and fire arm attack to mimic how you could swap between the two weapon types in the game and your attacks/specials would be based on which mode you were currently using. Beyond that any ideas I had would be her Final Smash involving the use of the Prog Ares 90 (or even the white one from the intro cutscene) or something like that. But again that's not something I'd expect to see. I do like the idea for a stage involving the cloud sea though, would be a lot more interesting than another roaming platform stage I'd say. I recently saw Max's reaction and he was pretty spot on with that description. XD I did like how excited he was for Final Smashes to have an option to become a meter since that might add a new dynamic to tournament play if people don't shy away from it like it hurts the "purity" of competitive Smash or something like that.

    I get that angle especially when for me the biggest impact was had with Marth and Roy's inclusion in Melee. But it's also cool to just see characters you grew up with introduced in new and interesting ways as a fighter in Smash. For a long time my biggest want was Lil Mac and he was finally added in Smash 4. Yeah, I'm familiar with the character and all but I still wanted to see how he work as a character in Smash Bros. and have a chance to use someone I really wanted to see being given a shot. In some ways, Smash Bros. can still introduce people to elements from games or game franchises entirely through a variety of different ways. It doesn't have to be the characters themselves but things like assist trophies, the music, trophy descriptions and things like that. I guarantee you most of the people reacting to Simon/Richter Belmont really don't know anything about those characters other than the hype surrounding their reveal thanks to speculation or leaks or whatever. They know OF the character but don't actually know about them. Even better when they see Alucard and were either silent during the description of his character and what his assist trophy does or just kind of talked over it because they had no idea what to say in terms of casually talking about it/reacting to it. Smash Bros. will give them that opportunity.
