    https://nintendoeverything.com/astral-chain-was-in-the-works-before-nier-automata-started-development-original-plan-was-for-triplets-more/ It would also appear that Nintendo had a lot more to do with development of the game than just publishing it.  It appears that the original concept was to be a medieval game, but Nintendo wanted it to be more unique.  It also is evident that...

    Cadence of Hyrule review

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 18 June 2019

    Cadence of Hyrule took everyone by suprise when it first came out.  No one expected Nintendo to allow an indie company to develop their own Zelda spin off title, despite letting other developers take on mainline games such as Grezzo with Triforce Heros and Capcom with Minish Cap and Four Swords.  Priced at 24.99 USD, lets see how the game holds up! Visuals The game is a joy to look at...

    Final Fantasy VIII Remaster might be getting a physical release!

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 13 June 2019

    https://www.gamefly.com/game/final-fantasy-viii/5021905 It seems that unlike the other PS1 remasters released this generation, Final Fantasy VIII might actually be getting a physical release.  All three versions of the game have just been listed on Gamefly (no box art), which is a strong indication that we will be seeing a physical release for the game. Usually Gamefly is pretty on point...

    Breath of the Wild 2 will take place in the same Hyrule.

    Favorite Final Fantasy and favorite Final Fantasy character?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 16 April 2019

    With all of these Final Fantasy ports coming to Switch and X-X2 coming to X1, I got to thinking about what everyone's preferences are when it comes to the franchise.  After all since each entry is so different and most are not even in the same universe, opinions will surely vary from person to person. For me, the answer to my favorite Final Fantasy will vary based on my mood.  At one...

    Prediction: PS5 will sell considerably less than the PS4 in Japan LT

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 04 April 2019

    Just as the title says, for a few reasons.  One is Sony's stance on censorship.  Many Japanese devs, particularly smaller ones, cannot be bothered with it.  While bigger games such as DMC5 remained untouched in Japan, other games most certainly are.  Regardless of how you might feel about this censorship, it will impact sales in Japan.  Especially considering that their...

    Zelda Breath of the Wild Turns 2 today!

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 13 March 2019

    In light of another thread that celebrates the birthday of the Switch, I feel the first major game on the console deserves some love as well!   Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild has turned 2 today, and man has it been a journey to remember.  What are your thoughts on Breath of the Wild?  Do you like the changes?  What were your most memorable moments?  What would you...

    Why games like Smash selling like they are helps the industry...

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 22 January 2019

    As most of you all know, Smash is breaking sales records left and right and destroyed expectations for how it would be as a system seller.  This is not only good for Nintendo however, but good for everyone.  When we look at how games are performing on Switch, the best selling games have one thing in common...they are complete games that offer value for what you are paying for them with...

    Zelda Theory- The Canon Timeline takes place outside the events of Skyward Sword

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 19 January 2019

    So as many of you may not know (and some of you do) I have a blog over at Zelda Amiino where I discuss theories and fanfiction based on the canon Zelda timeline.  I have quite a few interesting theories and I figured it might be fun to discuss them with you all here.   It is for that reason that I jave decided to start a new series called "Zelda Theory" where I will link one of my...

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 11 December 2018

    Change my mind.   Instead of just making a long list of points to counter what is most commonly argued for the contrary, lets play a game.  Post why you think that this is not true and I will periodically trickle in with a multi quote rebuttaling with evidence that you may (or may not, I am fair) be wrong.   Also note, that I am speaking of the Switch in general.  Everyone...

    Nintendo wins 12 mil from loveroms in lawsuit

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 14 November 2018

    https://torrentfreak.com/nintendo-wins-12-million-from-pirate-rom-site-operators-181112/   It sucks, but Nintendo had every right to do this.  Just think of the ad revenue these sites get using IPs that they do not own. The fact that they agreed to pay 12 mil speaks volumes for how much they must have made over the years.  I certainly hope however that Nintendo does some kind of...

    Your 2018 gaming portfolio

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 01 December 2018

    As we get closer to the end of the year, we all should have an idea how the rest of the year will play out for ourselves.  So lets take a time to share what games we have played (beaten or for an extended period of time) in 2018, as well as what we believe (in some cases know) we will be playing in Nov and Dec.  For me it was...   PS4   Uncharted 4 (beaten) Horizon Zero...

    Sony's Mascot

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 06 September 2018

    Ah mascots.  When most people think mascots, they can usually quickly identify which one most represents their brand quite quickly.  Sega has Sonic, Nintendo has Mario, and MS has Master Chief...but what about Sony?   Back in the days of the PS1, you could quickly throw out Crash or Spyro.  However Sony does not own the IP and they have since gone multiplat.  So lets...

    A look at the Switch's library so far...

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 26 August 2018

    So the Switch is going on a year and a half of it's life, and I thought it would be nice to take a look at what it has offered thus far.  Many people, myself included, have been a but disappointed by the offerings in terms of saftware for the first half of the year.  However was this truly a disappointing period, or was the 1st year just so good that it made it LOOK worse than it...

    Question about Persona 5 romance options

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 14 August 2018

    So I am playing through Persona 5, and I have a question regarding the romance options.  I heard of many people accidentally ending up in a romance before they even knew what was happening, and then being stuck with that romance or being a player.   So without spoiling anything, is it possible to aquire all characters and explore options without blowing it with any of them, or are...

    Dragonball FighterZ Switch test

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 11 August 2018

    So the online test for the Switch version of Dragonball FighterZ is now live, and I decided to give it a go this morning.   First things first...the visuals.  Having come from the PS4 Pro version of the game, I must say that I am impressed.  As expected, it is not near as sharp as it is on the pro, but the visuals do hold up decently enough on my 50" 4k TV.  Performance wise...

    Prefered 3rd Party support on Switch

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 01 August 2018

    The Switch so far has had pretty decent 3rd party support thus far with the Switch, but there is still much to be desired.  Late ports are still something that run rampant on the system almost a year and a half later and some of the more demanding ports seem to be nitpicked by those who prefer the experience on X1 or PS4, as there is a noticeable performance gap between versions.  It is...
