If E3 this year was any indication Nintendo's getting into blase title card or lowkey whatever announcements so I'm sure someone will say some poo poo like "...and these new amiibo will also be compatible with Smash Brothers DX for Nintendo Switch coming next year" and give it no time to sit and move on to like some indie 3DS game.

This is why I just don't have expectations for new game announcements at Nintendo Directs anymore. Sometimes they still do, but a lot of times they don't and just announce the cool games randomly at some low-key thing.

That said, the content ID thing for Smash would be a funny as hell way to leak something

the saddest game store -related incident is still that Bob's Game guy messing up a Nintendo World store and getting kicked out and then claiming that THIS IS REAL MARKETING

the whole wikipedia about that game is one long and incredibly embarrassing journey

A couple chapters of that story exist in the form of SA threads which are probably lost to the ether at this point.
IIRC his first thread or two were of him pretending to be someone else hocking his "friend's" game.

Yeah the Rabbid stuff is take-it-or-leave-it to me, but Nintendo wouldn't ever make something like this without Ubisoft, so I guess rabbids are the price you pay.

It's possible they might now, with the reception this has been getting.
On the other hand, it wouldn't be Nintendo if they didn't throw a popular franchise out with the trash.

i didn't finish wonderful 101 but i would buy a wonderful 102 on switch in a heartbeat if they made the story less poo poo and didn't have any gamepad segments

kinda hard to have gamepad segments on a switch though so i think we're good on that front

i'd also buy a bayo 3 but i think we'd sooner just get a port of bayo 1 + 2 and i already have my wii u for that so pass

Same. I played Sonic and Cave Story with it and it feels fine. Not as great as a real dpad but totally usable for me.

But they're buttons for a reason, you can't use the joycon horizontally if it has a d-pad. You're expected to get the pro controller for fighting games that are not ARMS.

No. She's just a popular side character that was in one game. I think she's a safe bet for DLC at least.

She's a tertiary character with no bearing on the plot of her game, who is possible to accidentally kill and never recruit.

Oh yeah, Rayman Legends Definitive Edition was released today, and while it's pretty faithful to the other versions, the load times are the longest compared to all the other versions - yes, even the Vita version. Digital Foundry suspects Ubisoft did some aggressive data compression on the game.

The idea that they made the game load times longer on a system with entirely solid state storage for the sake of just making the file size smaller when it wasn't exactly huge to begin with is amazing. Also do people really care about that soccer mode enough to have it be the one big headline addition to the new version?
