Total Eclipse of the Heart

I'm pretty on the fence about the Mario x-com game. It could end up being something I really like (it does look fun), but it could also turn into a game I realize after 3-4 hours that I never really want to play it again.

Like an hour in, its pretty funny and while they give you abilities pretty slowly through the first 4 or 5 levels they at least aren't too hand holding. 3* requirements have been incredibly lax thusfar.

US release date confirmed as October 20th as well. This special edition comes with 25 art cards so I assume that's how many characters the game is going to come with.

This is great news and a lot earlier than what I expected, but it leaves me to wonder what Nintendo could have in the pipeline for the Switch in November

I looked into it out of curiosity, and I found two interesting things. First, seems like it's just Rime in November. No idea what it is, never heard of it.

Buuuuut, I also saw one of my favourite party games! Ultimate Chicken Horse! So I don't know when that's coming out but (as with everything) it's perfect for the Switch! Finally local multiplayer for that that doesn't have me digging out my USB splitter.

Going to have some trouble remembering how to take BOTW out of the machine for Rabbids tomorrow. I don't think its left since March.



Also thought my Switch was broken. I'm 99.9% sure I hard powered it off months ago, also the first time I actually figured out how to turn it off and not just put it in sleep mode. It would not turn on when I tried preparing it for Mario XCOM goodness. Customer service said to hold the power button for 15 seconds and then press it again and that didn't work... Then found some random youtube video saying you had to hold the power button for 30 seconds and press it again and that did work.

I wonder what's going to happen to the Miiverse stage in Smash.


Like at least Splatoon 1 has a dozen or so pre-made Miiverse artworks to use when your Wii U wasn't connected to the internet. I always wondered if the Miiverse Stage had something similar.

Of course now I'm wondering like, how long are internet services for the 3DS and Wii U even going to be up for?

I'm not saying Trump donated money to NAMBLA, but people are saying that. It's something I've heard, but I don't believe Donald Trump donated several million dollars to NAMBLA over the last several years. Still, if he did that would be a great reason to not release his tax returns

Probably the same as when you play on that stage offline which is just no drawings at all. I'm sure they'll stay up for online gaming for a few more years, especially 3DS.

Edit: Nintendo has apparently specified that Mario Maker levels can still be uploaded after the Miiverse shutdown.

Ubisoft is working with Nintendo to make a crossover game between Mario and their awful rabbids. Its a turn-based tactical combat game that seems heavily inspired by the modern Xcom games. Somehow it actually looks good.

Miiverse was the only form of social media that I enjoyed using. It worked so well because the posts were sorted based on the game they were about, so you could expect your post to be read by people who know what the game is and who share your interest in it. No Facebook problem of having to explain a high-context joke to your mom, no Twitter problem of putting your video games shitposts alongside your politics shitposts.
