Are you excited about Will and Graces return?

Have not heard a thing about it.

on 05 September 2017

not only have they gotten a series reboot but they just signed off on a second season.https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2017/08/will-and-grace-first-look-nbc

on 06 September 2017

It's real. Wow, this is so not gay.

On one hand I am excited to see this comeback, but on the other hand I remember how the show fared here in Central Europe. It didn't catch on despite being given the opportunity and season 8's already dubbed version did rot in the basement for two years before it was aired at awkward times. I wasn't even aware of it because the show had already been gone for a while. But later there was a rerun on a newly added channel to the network, so I watched the entire final season eventually.

on 06 September 2017

I tend to go the dvd route if a series I like isn't being handled to my liking on TV.

on 06 September 2017

There's the internet and streaming now.

on 06 September 2017

Everyone knows that streamings only worthwhile if it's for AAA 4K games and only PSNOW and THEN, can deliver that preferably in 3D, I have heard of netflix such a silly idea to much lag on dial up and modern broad band would just be a waste of bandwidth that rightly belong's to games.

Expecting Switch LTD shipments by June 30th to be below 5m in light of the known sell-through numbers for Japan and the USA.

Originally I expected between 5-5.5m based on the guess that ~750k units are produced per month. Sell-through suggests that it's closer to 600k per month, so shipments might come in even below 2m for the quarter. That would result in less than 4.75m LTD.

Can't you send a friend request to my nickname? It's rolstoppable.

I don't own any online games.

on 16 July 2017

As far as I know it is based on friend code only.

Did you not get interest in ARMS or Splatoon 2?
I tried the demo for Splatoon 2 and it looked like decent fun (never played it on WiiU). ARMS was more of a gamble but I'm enjoying it quite a bit.
I wasn't going to buy MK8 Deluxe after 350 hours on WiiU.

on 16 July 2017

I already have a dozen of friends without any friend codes. I never posted mine, but all of these people sent me requests. Not sure how they did it.

I tried both ARMS and Splatoon 2. Didn't even make use of the full demo time because both games bored me quickly.

on 16 July 2017

Well, we were never WiiU friends so I can't really add you like that and my 3DS account is not the same as the Nintendo account linked one. So my friend code is there if you're interested. :P

Did you ever finish Shadows of Valentia? If so how did you like it? I've been on the fence over whether or not to pick it up for a while now.

Nope, I still haven't finished it yet. I hope that I find the willpower to get around to it eventually and write a review. Projected score: 5/10.

on 02 July 2017

Youch! So it is a lot worse than the North American GBA games then?

on 02 July 2017

Yes, it is a lot worse. It's also worse than Awakening and Shadow Dragon.

It's quite different from other Fire Emblem games. The things it has removed are sorely missed (weapon triangle, being able to carry more than one weapon or item), the things it changed are stupid (EXP and class change system) and the things it adds aren't really positive (dungeon expiditions get old fast and invite limitless encounters which in turn brings game design that more or less requires grinding).

I have trouble to find the motivation to finish the game. Never had that with any other Fire Emblem.

on 02 July 2017

Gah! I suspected that it would be primitive due to being an NES game. But worse than Shadow Dragon? Jeez. A friend was playing it last night, and he said it was really good, but I think he was only as far as the first couple hours.

on 02 July 2017

Pretty much everyone has liked the early going and appreciated the differences. It's from act 3 onwards that people begin to realize that the differences are more annoying than beneficial. I am not sure what people say by act 4 because there has been mostly silence. I don't think that's a good sign though.

Looking up what he got banned for this time, I am left wondering how Lawlight keeps getting away. Then again, there was and is a thread that should have been locked in its infancy because it was so terrible, so what the mod team is really missing right now is a Nintendo-leaning moderator who does something.

on 21 June 2017

Why Lawlight isn't perma'ed is beyond me.

on 21 June 2017

Maybe he is an alt account of one of the mods.

on 21 June 2017

You should fish for information to find out that mystery. He's an... odd one.

on 21 June 2017

I can't do more than ask the mod team which I already did. They couldn't provide a respectable answer, so there's nothing else I alone can do.

Do you have any thoughts in MH World and Capcom?

Switch will get Monster Hunter 5. I suppose World will be a bit different from mainline MH, but the trailer doesn't tell much.

on 12 June 2017

Can't say I don't feel a tad bit salty by this. I'm used to the shitty treatment by EA, but I thought Capcom had better judgement. Also the fact I've enjoyed MH quite a bit.
Reminds of some Capcom press conference where Vita fans kept saying over and over that the 3DS would receive a MH3 Port while the Vita would get the mainline MH4. Then the MH3 port trailer was shown for 3DS, and there was a small celebration from the Vita camp.
And Bam! MH4 announced for 3DS immediately afterwards.

on 12 June 2017

My bet: MH World is going to be single player and open world.

on 13 June 2017

He likes "monster hunter" only on Nintendo. He also plays JRPGs only on Nintendo systems, all other games are not important. Persona 5 and Ni No Kuni 2 is the best jrpg game this year, but every nintendo game or nintendo jrpg is reference xD. His words.
Please answer me a question: How old are you?
We are all here because we want proper discussions. But your off-topic discussions (& provocations) in the last thread in the forum are ... -.- Please stay with the topic, general. And accept other opinions from the people.

To our bet: For what - we bet, Persona 5 = better ratings (& sales figures) than XC2? It's sad for you. I can play XC2 by my friend. You will never experience this incredible Story / Gameplay / Characters / Atmosphere of Persona 5 or Ni No Kuni 2 - because you are only playing on Nintendo consoles and are not open to other games. Really sad. PS: The first half of my comment is an irony allusion to your behavior.

on 15 June 2017

:-D

on 15 June 2017

PS: edit: Persona 5 or Ni No Kuni 2 is MAYBE the best jrpg this year, my forecast. This incredible story / gameplay and characters of Persona 5 will be very hard to beat. I hope for you, that you can play it sometime.But just because you like "only nintendo" games, it does not mean - all other games are worthless :) But wish you a great day. @RolStoppable

on 08 June 2017

Platina banned me in February. He went out of his way for that one, because on the rare occasion that he bans someone, it's because they are a spambot or an alt account.

Nice collection.

< TruckOSaurus posted something on RolStoppable's wall:

How do you think Nintendo is going to handle the 3DS going forward now that they know the Switch is viable? Do you think they'll stick to their January statement that both systems will continue to co-exist?

I am sure that they will stick to their January statement, because that plan went never beyond normal late life support for a Nintendo handheld. This co-existence never meant something along the lines of "expect more top-of-the-line first party games for the 3DS."

In their latest financial results, Nintendo showed data that back catalogue games going as far back as 2011 stilll managed to sell 500k-1m units each in the past fiscal year alone. There is clearly demand left for the 3DS platform, and the rising share of 2DS sales in the past fiscal year is the reason for the New 2DS XL, a 2DS model with clamshell design and the more popular bigger screens.

The co-existence means that the 3DS platform will be coasting on evergreen titles and a new hardware revision. There's no reason to believe that Switch and 3DS will receive equal support going forward, the 3DS merely continues to exist because there's still demand and its hardware and software are in a different league than Switch when it comes to price.

The only question mark is the rumored Pokémon Stars. It could be 3DS-only, but I am thinking it will be a dual-release for 3DS and Switch.

on 19 May 2017

That's encouraging news. The Switch will need a constant stream of games from all of Nintendo's teams because I don't expect much from 3rd parties in the near future.

Part of the January statement that bugged me was that they outlined that the Switch is not a replacement for the 3DS which kinda left the door open for an eventual successor to be announced down the line.

on 19 May 2017

Switch is already on track to inherit the third party support of 3DS and Vita which is almost exclusively Japanese software. Indies from all across the world will show up as well. There's no reason to expect substantial third party support from the big publishers of America and Europe, but otherwise it's looking pretty good for the mid to long term. But you are right that 2017 won't be loaded.

Nintendo never said anything about Switch not replacing the 3DS, but there were news articles floating around that claimed the contrary because of loose interpretations of what NIntendo said. It goes back to this co-existence which really only means that Nintendo won't immediately discontinue the 3DS. Discontinuation was the specific question in one interview and Kimishima said that the 3DS will continue to be produced; there were gaming news that removed the question and presented Kimishima's answer as something that implied that there will be a separate line of handhelds going forward.

One interesting announcement related to this is that Nintendo's presentation at E3 will be about Switch while the 3DS will be shoved into the Treehouse. Switch and 3DS are clearly not equal.

on 19 May 2017

Yeah I did see that news. I even joked that the 3DS was getting the Vita treatment (which might have been harsh, nobody deserves the Vita treatment...except the Vita of course).
