I know it's probably gonna be a Tokyo Game Show thing but Monster Hunter Switch would not only be awesome, it would also confirm DuskGolem's other poo poo probably (Silent Hill, RE4 Remake)

Can you be more specific with what you don't like? I'm playing it for the first time and I think the hit boxes aren't great and the controls are a little floaty for me but the graphics are beautiful, there is a great attention to details, the levels are varied and generally interesting. I'm about half through and I'm really enjoying it. It's pretty, interesting, and that makes it fun.

Not to give you homework but just saying it sucks because people arent specific about why they like a thing is a boring take.



it's ugly to the point of the visuals actively detracting from the platforming. it feels vague and sloppy, like I'm never quite sure where exactly my character is, horizontally but especially vertically with those godawful floors. it would literally be a better game if it was flat coloured rectangles for hitboxes, but then you'd be able to tell that the levels don't have very much going on with them beyond standard platforming obstacles. it's just got no hook, nothing about it grabs me. its USP is its graphics and those aged like warm milk, that somehow came out of the bottling plant already spoiled

I still have to question the idea of a RE4 Remake, when RE4 is still a game they are actively re-releasing

Had to give it a wipe-down and wait a bit as mail, pandemic, etc, but I'm gonna start with Super Mario Galaxy. I've played SM64 a dozen times over for 120 Stars, and I've replayed Sunshine in recent years after finally buying a copy for myself (rented and beat as a kid), but I've only played through Super Mario Galaxy the once despite repeatedly intending to give it another go-round. I completely beat it for all 240 stars though.

Also a tidbit about Super Mario Galaxy; Back when it first came out on the Wii, I got my copy ordered from the UK. This was around the time Australia still got dicked around on release dates and pricing a whole lot more than we do now, so I got my copy of Super Mario Galaxy a full week before it came out in Australia. I was smug that entire week while playing that game .

I got mine from EB Games. They're generally pretty speedy on new-release deliveries where I am.

No, the article is pretty reasonable and mundane. You guys made me look it up to see if I was misremembering stuff since I haven't checked his site in over a decade, but unless there's some old version that's been taken down I think this is just the regular weird projection you normally see whenever playing games competitively comes up.

Every NSMB title I've played feels soulless and empty. Like if a witch doctor brought your dead granddad back to life: he might be sitting there at the kitchen table eating breakfast with you, but you can't really enjoy his company because you know that he's a hollow shell with dark magic forcing him to pantomime eating and drinking.

Now....face the fury of the Phoenix Force!

I got Ring Fit Adventure so it can help me lose weight and get it in better shape. Taking it easy so far but it feels fun. I am hoping they do more with the Ring Fit controller.

Then it dawned on me......they need a Ring Fit Mode in Mario Kart 9.

The build for it is simply to do.

Steering: Turn the ring left/right. Duh.

Accelerating: Have options for this. One would be to jog in place with an intensity level or even have an auto accelerate (squeezing the ring at the right time would trigger the start boost in this)

Breaking: Squeeze the ring (there will be a delay to not mess up the starting boost).

Hopping: Pull the ring.

Items: There will be two options. #1 is with the leg strap on, do a quick knee life to select/use the item. #2 would be to quickly bring the ring to a horizontal position to make it feel like you are 'throwing' it. Reversing it would shoot the items from the back of the kart.

This is just a rough draft of the idea but this would be a fun option to put in the game. Does it sound fun?

I’d find this completely insufferable, but if they make it an option for those who want it and let me keep my current controls, that’d be cool

Galaxy 120 stars as Mario

Mario 64

Sunshine

Galaxy 120 stars as Luigi

This order is a good order. And as the, apparently, sole owner of a copy of Super Mario 3D All-Stars in the thread at this time, I think that makes my word law for the next few hours all matters regarding this game .

Relax bro, it's just to start a conversation to see what other folks are doing. However, you may end up making a profit if you flip it quickly enough.
