I got a 3DS XL, Hey! Pikmin, Xenoblade, and Super Metroid yesterday. Xenoblade is pretty cool so far, I finally got to the "things go wrong" RPG scene after the tutorials.

Did you know that dinosaurs had big ears but everyone forgot 'cause dinosaur ears don't have bones?

That's 'cause it's not true.
It's a rock fact!

PSA: Keep your fetishes safe, everyone. It might not easy to explain why you've been letting Sonic get closer and closer to drowning for your epic edge sesh, but what are video games for if not to live out your secret desires.

Since Heart's Medicine has turned this thread on to casual mom games I want to mention that Hero of the Kingdom is 90% off and it's a great chillax hidden object/inventory management game with generic RPG trappings.

It is really annoying to me that MMLC2 doesn't have Mega Man and Bass

Sakurazuka
Jan 24, 2004



Yeah

Trouble is I think only the GBA version has an English translation and backporting that to the SNES version, which they have to emulate for MM7, is beyond the effort Capcom is capable of.

E: actually it's all ports not emulation I think so it's just Crapcom being themselves

I think I would like Delicious more than Heart's Medicine, if the Emily levels in that game are any indication. I like the time management aspect more than the mobile phone minigames, which got really annoying by the end.

Key-tapping minigames are fine, though. I am really looking forward to Cook Serve Delicious 2

We have a name in mind (from a video game character, natch) but nothing's set in stone yet. I'll take suggestions for names for a baby boy. We've got about 6 weeks to mull them over.

I have started getting good at Bloodborne* and my fighting game stick arrived as well.
It is a wonderful year for video gaming. I'd even go so far as to say this has been my most favourite video gaming year ever.

(*Lady Videogames has turned out to be an adept at it and I'd much rather watch her play because she owns those moves!)

The Fabulous games are closer to Delicious in that regard. Just time management, no minigames. Also extremely ridiculous stories.

Better than the first one in my opinion (the recent Mighty Gunvolt Burst is pretty good too, it's basically MN9 only fun to play).

I'm cautiously anticipating Before the Storm despite everything going against it (Chloe's new voice actress, DontNod having little to no involvement in its production, the fact that it's even more unnecessary than most prequels considering the first game basically told us all we needed to know, etc.), still probably worth a shot though.

I like to run potential names through a few tests to see if they sound right.

"It's an honor to have you on the show, Senator Little Boss Waffles."

gently caress, skip the middle man and name the kid Senator. That's a pro strat right there.
