  1. Well look at that we have SMBW direct at the end of this month! (less than a week from Nintendo's announcement of Charles Martinet becoming a Mario ambassador) It is 15 minutes in length so decent display of the game but not too big. Probably going over the mechanics (whatever story), any online features and...that's about all I can think of. I don't this direct has anything to do with the vid Miyamoto and Charles were gonna share, it's possible but what's definitely not happening in this Direct is who is the new voice of Mario. Nintendo said we will find out at the game credits. Also, it has been swirling like usual for a early September Direct, last weekend. Yesterday, it got around there could be one this week, This must be this Direct. Sometimes when you wish hard enough you get a Direct but not the you were probably expecting, lol.
  2. Outside the exaggerated acting and looks of some.....can I lie and say this game isn't fun? Don't think this is showing up in the direct tomorrow but who knows?
  3. There was an accidental YT upload about this the other day but it quickly got taken down. A few days later, the vouchers are available. US: https://www.nintendo.com/store/products/nintendo-switch-game-vouchers/ Eligible games: (List will grown with more titles new and old as time pass by) https://www.nintendo.com/store/games/game-voucher-eligible/ Canada: (For at least the 4 or less Canadians users on this forum) https://www.nintendo.com/en-ca/store/products/nintendo-switch-game-vouchers/ Eligible games: https://www.nintendo.com/en-ca/store/games/game-voucher-eligible/ To be able to purchase these vouchers, you must have a NSO membership. So I own most of the games I could get on the list. (I believe I told some of the MK8 crew last week how many games I own physically and digitally) I will look at the list as it updated thru the months, the only game I am interested but I want physically is Bayonetta Origins. And even if I change my mind, I need to pick 2 titles. It is encouraging they have pretty upcoming titles you can get and even recent released last month. Well, you can use the OP and the thread as a pit stop to the link to purchase the voucher, if you like. How the vouchers work. The video put up by mistake and then quickly taken down is up for real, real.
  4. Pretty what is said here, is in a line with what I would like in Tears of the Kingdom. Anyone else agree or have more to share as their hopes for Tears of of the Kingdom?
  5. I've been waiting for this and I would say it mostly delivers... The Canadian Godzilla, eh? killed me lmao.
  6. Nice to finally have a release date for Bayonetta 3. I believe shortly before we knew of a Nintendo Direct Mini, it was rumored the release date in this trailer would be the release date for this game. Most have thought it would be October-Halloween, it fits the theme of the game and Bayo 2 released in October. But this October for Switch is packed. There's almost a game every week of the month coming out. Still I happy Bayo 3 got a spot in October. Looking forward to its release!
  7. So this was one of those games that would be fun to play occasionally with friends online. One of those "Game Night" type of games. I haven't played this since the Sunday after I got the game. This is also my first Mario Party in a while with the last one I played being 8. I wanted to try something if anyone that owns the game is available. This is mainly asking for just this Friday coming up but maybe things could change with the occasional (not weekly) Game Night for either this or other games that can fit that mold like Among Us, Duck Game and other games that I know I shouldn't be getting because of my backlog. So all in all: Friday at 10pm Eastern Discord Voice Chat Stream and/or Record Anyone interested?
  8. Thought to make a separate thread to discuss this somewhat in-depth trailer. How's it looking so far?
  9. There's no big spoilers in this vid but there's snippet of one that last 5 seconds about the theme of the end boss and that's it. With said, I will still put the vid in spoiler tag just incase. It's that time again and came up much faster than most with Honest Game Trailers. Took a month to come out compared to other Honest Game Trailers taking a few month after a game release. That's weird to me or there must of been a demand to get it out soon as possible. Regardless, I'd hazard as a guess that there's a few ppl as of this post that have not beat the game so that is why for a game like this and when they put Honest Game Trailers, this one is really sooner than expected. Expect weeb 'r' us in this video, that's all.
  10. Oh that Sakurai! Either flexin' like he know how or throws something the world may have never seen or heard before. A horizontal Switch?!? Like Spawn said, this is the first he seen or heard of this. Same goes for me but only Sakurai can trailblaze a way to display on console system. Tho, despite that said, I am sure Sakurai isn't the first to do this. Most like the first to document this but it makes all the more to observe in awe that it is Sakurai to show there's another way to display your. I could do that with my but mine is on the top of my TV stand near the left end and doing so will shift my other things and Switch contollers and Wii U gamepad off the top of the stand. So doable but those controllers will have no place to go if I shift my Switch horizontally.
  11. No mention of the online experience being hampered but the usual soccer stereotype joke and stuff.
  12. I recognized this game when it showed up in Xbox Showcase last year at E3. I believe there was no release date but this game was already out on PC in China or was in a beta. I'm surprised this game is coming out on Switch but from the look in this trailer, I can see they really made some sacrifice to run on Switch. I was looking to see if this was coming to clod on Switch, lol. Here's how the game looks on the Xbox Series X.
  13. New copy abilities and Co-op is shown. Tho this the 2nd time this game is shown, it is looking better with every showing.
  14. And I wouldn't play these classics games any other way, bonus stars or bust.
  15. This was unexpected for Nintendo to do, it makes sense for today is the launch of the system but I feel this was something they were always gonna share. A lot of ppl I feel have questions about this new family iteration of the Nintendo Switch. Didn't read all of the articles, just watch some vids on YT that covered some more important points such as the Joy-Cons supposedly working better. Of course the developers don't mention JC drift but use other words to describe the issue at hand. Anyway... here's the link to the articles: Nintendo Switch OLED Model - Ask the Developer
  16. The two year old game that has taken gaming by storm over the last year and claimed both Best Multi-Player Game and Best Mobile Game at The Game Awards 2020 has now sus'd its way onto Nintendo Switch with cross-platform play! Come together with 4-10 friends to work as a crew to complete their tasks each round while the imposter(s) among them try to sabotage and kill off the crew. Can the crew sus out the imposter(s) while keeping casualties to a minimum? Or will the crew find themselves among the dead before the round ends? Just be careful... trusting the wrong person could spell the end for you.
  17. Yes, the ability cancel games you pre-order is now a option on the Nintendo eShop. The reason for this is that when you PO games on the eShop previously, you were charged right away. Now you are charged a week before the launch of the game, meaning you have a week before to cancel game PO. Of course you can cancel anytime before 7 day as seen in the video. All that's left is to get refund, Nintendo. I honestly thought this was a video for refund for digital games, hopefully that is coming soon.
  18. A Nintendo Direct Mini as been announced for this morning at 7am PDT / 10am EDT. What to pay attention to is that the 3rd party titles here are previously announced so we don't know if there will be anything new from 3rd parties not already announced for the Nintendo Switch. They also make no mention of Nintendo first party titles as well. What will we see today? EDIT: According Nintendo Japan Twitter, the showcase is 10 minutes long.
  19. The demo is available to DL for Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition on the Nintendo eShop. You can also Pre-load the game as well too. Also, don't forgot that whatever progress you end the demo with, you can transfer it to the full game. The game releases September 27th.
  20. Thought it was strange that no one was talking about the new information that came out about Fire Emblem: Three Houses, so I thought I'd share the translated feature from Famitsu. Translation posted on GoNintendo. Story Characters Protagonist The protagonist was originally making a living as mercenary, but then they realized that they had knowledge to pass on, and so became a teacher at the academy. Their mother had already passed away, which is why they were living with their father, who used to be at the head of the Knights of Seiros. Jeralt (Different translations had it spelled Geralt) The protagonist’s father, with a legendary reputation, and known as the strongest Knight that has ever graced the Church of Seiros, no less! After the protagonist is invited to the academy to take the position of teacher, he comes with him and becomes a knight again. More Detailed Info - a veteran Knight who used to serve as Head Knight for the Church of Seiros - regarded as the strongest Knight of all time - Jeralt left his position to become a mercenary - Jeralt's wife has passed away - Jeralt ends up joining the Knights of Seiros once again after the events at the beginning of the game - this is when the protagonist ends up saving students from the Officer’s Academy Sothis A mysterious girl who ends up saving the protagonist during a fateful night. She has lost her memory, and for some reason, only the protagonist can see her. More Detailed Info - a mysterious girl who appears in the protagonist’s dream - after saving the protagonist using her powers to rewind time, she stays in contact with them - the two can actually communicate as if she was in their head - no one but the protagonist can see her - she has lost her memories - despite looking like a young girl, she actually speaks like an old woman Three Houses and their leaders: Black Eagles Among the three powers ruling the Fodlan continent, the Adrestian Empire is the one with the longest history. People from there are usually more skilled with magic than weapons. The leader of the Black Eagles is Edelgard von Hresvelg, who also happens to be next in line to become Empress. She’s voiced by Ai Kakuma. She’s said to be quite the talented and signified individual. More Detailed Info on Edelgard - from the Adrestian Empire, and its future Empress - may appear somewhat cold and prideful, acting with diginity - always maintaining her composure, calmy assessing the situation and looking at other people before acting Blue Lions The House tied to the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus. Its leader is Dimitri Alexandre Blaiddyd (voiced by Kaito Ishikawa), Prince of the Kingdom and future King. He’s said to be quite the polite young man, and the very embodiment of chivlary. However, it seems that he does have a dark side… Perhaps due to the prevalence of knights in the country, most students from that House are particular good with spears. More Detailed Info on Dimitri - leader of the Blue Lions, Prince of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and future King - said to be quite the honest fellow, and the very embodiment of chivalry - you can sometimes see a faint bit of darkness hidden behind his smiles Golden Deer Members of the Leicester Alliance nobility make up the students of that House. They are said to be quite gifted with the bow. The leader of that House is Claude von Riegan (voiced by Toshiyuki Toyonaga), member of the Riegan family (leader of the alliance). He’s quite the friendly-looking fellow, who thinks deeply about things, and can be quite sharp-minded. Compared to the other two, the Golden Deer House has a higher proportion of commoners among its students. Gameplay systems - divided in two parts: battles, and student teaching - battles put a much stronger emphasis on character training - the rewind system from Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is back - battles have a large number of people taking part in them at once. - battles take place on a variety of terrains, which all have their own effects - terrain determines how units move around, and can give an evasion and defense boost for example - terrain includes the following: forest: increases evasion, making it harder for enemy units to hit you. A great place to wait for the enemy to ambush them; terrain that can heal your units; terrain that can warp characters around. - “Beat of Heaven” allows you to go back in time for a few turns, letting you fix any mistakes that you made - this can only be used a certain amount of times, and likely has a cooldown period - difficulty level influences how strong enemies are, and the modes allows / prevents allies from being revived after falling battle - there are normal and hard difficulties - there are casual and classic modes - when a character undergoes class change, their level is not reset to 1 anymore, and they can keep using the same weapon - a character can change classes as many times as you want, as long as they have passed the test for each class - during student training, you can move around in the Garreg Mach Monastery and interact with the various characters - the bond between teacher and student is said to be a key element of the game - at the Officer’s Academy, the students get to improve their skills - students can also be taught directly by the protagonist, and they can have conversations with them to deepen their bond - there’s a support system that kicks in during battles, with further details coming at a later date - in order to use specific weapons and techniques in battle, and in order to change their class, you need to raise your skill level - the higher their skill level, the stronger the skills they can acquire, and the stronger the weapons they can handle - each student have their own strengths and weakness - main skills include the following: Swordsmanship: sword-related skills Art of the Spear: spear-related skills Art of the Axe: axe-related skills Archery: bow-related skills Physics: dark and black magic-related skills Faith: white magic-related skills Flying: skills for flying units Heavy Armour: skills for armored units Horsemanship: skills for cavalry units - Main skills you can learn include the following: Swordsmanship Lv. 1 = when equipped with a sword, Hit Rate +5, Avoid +7, Dodge+5 Sword Slaying = when unit is equipped with armor and fighting a sword user, Hit Rate and Dodge +20 Art of the Spear Lv. 1 = when unit is equipped with armor, Hit Rate +7, Avoid +5, Dodge +5 Short-range counterattack = allow unit to counterattack when enemy is 1 space away; Physics Lv. 1: when unit is using dark and black magic equipment, Hit Rate +5, Avoid +5, Dodge +5 Faith Lv. 1: when unit is using light magic equipment, Hit Rate +5, Avoid +7, Dodge +5 - as the students progress, they eventually reach the point where they can take on exams - passing those allows them to change classes - in order take an exam, you also need an exam pass of the corresponding level - the higher the skill level of a student for the skill corresponding to the exam, the more likely they are to pass it - once a unit has passed an exam, they can change class at any time - even the protagonist can pass those exams - units have a base class, which changes depending on their origins - at the beginning, units have basic classes such as Swordsman, Knight, Fighter, Monk - these can move to a more advanced class by using a Level 5 or higher exam pass - class examples are as follows: Commoners / Nobles: no distinctive features, can use a little bit of magic Swordsman: they favor the sword. Speedy units with high Avoid rate; Knight: they favor the spear. Great dexterity, making it easy to hit enemies; Fighter: they focus on raw power. They can handle axe and bows with ease; Monk: they can use magic. There’s several types of Monks: White, Black, and Dark Lot of info! Here's what I took from it. It takes some ideas from Shadows of Valentia and upgrades them a bit. Nothing about building supports into marriage as of now. It sounds like if you use a certain weapon and eventually class change to a different weapon's class, you retain the use of the previous weapon. (ex. Myrmidon builds up enough skill points to take an exam for a Fighter class. Passes and changes classes. Can now use Swords along with Axes and Bows.) If that's the case, you can build a pretty powerful bunch. Only thing that needs to be touched on is the main story/conflict, since the world has currently been built for us. We just have to see how in depth we can get into unit building whether it's supports, classes, weapons and the like. I'll leave you with a bit of Anna! By the Gods I still need to beat Fates.
  21. Just found out about this last night. Tried to download it, but it's too big for me to do so. It seems to be around 4-5gb. Saw that my own systems space went down from 10gb to around 6.4gb. Ended up deleting it. So make sure to have enough room before getting it! Source: https://www.polygon.com/deals/2019/3/18/18271002/splatoon-2-demo-free-trial-nintendo-switch-online-deal
