It will be interesting to see Link's Awakening sales in Switch in the future. I see some not very convinced by the art style of the game and I feel that if the game comes out at full price (more than likely) it could lose some sales. It is also true that today the Legend of Zelda saga is more popular than ever.

My favorite parts of the Link's Awakening Remake trailer: 

Look at how insanely detailed the texture work on the castle floor looks! And the water in-motion looks soooo beautiful in the second screenshot!

By the way, I don't know if I said it here back then, but I spent a good part of November working on some insanely long music playlists for a week-long event we held celebrating Smash Ultimate's release. Each day had a different playlist, all featuring a few specific moments dedicated to specific franchises, but in general it's just a huge selection of Nintendo music (and some from third-party games featured in Smash), sorted in a way that the songs have a certain 'continuity' to them. You know, your average playlist stuff. I had never posted them because a lot of their videos were from Smash Ultimate leaks and got deleted, but now I've gone through the effort of fixing it all. So if you guys wanna just put some Nintendo music on someday, and don't like the randomness of Dystify's 24/7 music stream, you can always play one of these.

Day 1 - featuring Smash 64, Mario, Pokémon, Splatoon.
Day 2 - featuring Kirby, Mario, F-Zero.
Day 3 - featuring Star Fox, Donkey Kong Country.
Day 4 - featuring Zelda, Metroid, Mario Odyssey, Castlevania.
Day 5 - featuring Pokémon, Zelda, Kirby.
Day 6 - featuring Smash 64 (same medley as Day 1 but in "updated" versions), Smash Ultimate, Castlevania, Fire Emblem, Smash series.

PS¹: They weren't open on Monday, which is why there's only 6 playlists; however, since there was a frag night on Friday, the 4th playlist is nearly twice as long as the others, with almost 200 songs.

PS²: When I say "featuring", I mean the day has a specific segment dedicated to a certain game or franchise. There are still loads of songs from other series in there.

I kind of want an RTS that uses this art style.

Yeah, that would be gorgeous! I love the art style. Zelda, Kirby, and Yoshi are constantly showing new ways of making games beautiful.

So far there are 7 Switch games on my intend-to-buy list for 2019, the same number as I bought from 2017 and up from just one in 2018. And it's only February.

Having said that, none of them look like they will be in the same god-tier as BOTW or Odyssey, so I'm not sure whether I'd say this year will top 2017 just yet. Still, a hell of a good lineup so far and there's still time for plenty more to be announced by year's end. (Come on Doom Eternal)

More Ultimate tech, Macro Cancelling.



The director of Bayonetta 2 has left PlatinumGames. I can already see people panicking.

It's sadly not the case but not the reactions you think the Bayo community unfortunately have some clowns with in it and some are more making a sigh a of relief because of a rift between B1 and B2 fans in how both games play. For anyone not deep into action games and the depth of Bayonetta it's widely considered the combat in the first game is more intricate but the second game is structured a lot better to playthrough so as you imagine some hardcore B1 fans are some what glad as it now confirms Kamiya is heading the third game.

I prefer the first game but still wished him well as ultimately the second game was still great but man some of these clowns are straight up vile.
