  1. Yeah; valid point. I've still not even finished Bloodborne.
  2. Definitely Microsoft. I didn't expect much from it but Forza Horizon 4 has me absolutely sold. I'll be getting a bundle with a One X and that when it's out. I can finally play Cuphead and Killer Instinct too. Sony was the worst of the main three for me; the big exclusives I want to play aren't until 2019. They do look very good, though, especially Ghost (though being from the Infamous developer puts me off a little because those games weren't for me). Still good overall though. Nintendo were pretty middling but luckily I love Smash Bros so that last stretch was a joy. I don't feel the new game looks like a significant step forward from the last one but having so many characters crammed in will keep me busy. I wish they showed more new games but Super Mario Party and Carcassonne were exciting news.
  3. That was a tweaked port of the NES version. This Switch one is the first time the arcade version has been made available on console. https://www.mariowiki.com/Donkey_Kong_(game)
  4. Does Lovecraftian mean apostrophes?
  5. He'll Ridley fulla holes.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - December 2018

    I'm pretty excited. The invitational tournament was great fun. Making players vulnerable for slightly longer the more they abuse the dodge roll ought to speed up matches with overly defensive players somewhat. Not sure how the change to Perfect Shield will play out. It will be far more of a risk to use now since it happens when you release your shield button rather than when you press it. Going for it too early will now leave you completely open instead of blocking. Kinda reminds me of the difference between Garou's Just Defend mechanic and Street Fighter 3's parry.
  7. And 3D Land is better still!
  8. Killer Queen is going to be amazing. It's core influence is clearly Joust but as a 5v5 game it's far more interesting. It's two teams of one Queen and four drones. You can win by killing the rival Queen three times (By colliding from a higher vantage-point, like Joust, or into their back) or by using the drones, who cannot fly, to carry berries back to the hive for an economic victory. A third way to win is by riding a snail from the centre of the screen to the end. You can spend a berry to upgrade your drone to a purely battle-focused, flying warrior (you can no longer pick up berries) or to upgrade your speed to hasten your progress toward that Economic or Snail victory. It looks to be about communicating and adapting your team's approach to counter your rivals. It really ought to be a load of fun. There are massive, two-screen, ten-player arcade cabs in a few locations across America. I hope to try one next time I'm in Austin.
  9. What about people-standard headsets?
  10. After this game releases Smash Bros will be the best selling fighting game series of all time. The Wii version already is the genre's best seller. I love Smash though so I very much enjoyed the Direct. I'm also very excited about Mario Party and Carcassonne because they're perfect games for travelling. I wish Fire Emblem was sooner though!

    E3 2018: Playstation Conference - NO FFVII

    Would have liked a few more surprises but I'll definitely be buying three of the big four games they showed and Resident Evil 2 remake is looking great too. Enjoyed the short Dreams segment afterward. I'm excited to hear more about how it all works and what you can put together with friends. I never want to see another Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer as long as I live, though.
  12. My biggest hope is for a Boom Street sequel on Switch. I'd settle for an English translation of Itadaki Street 30th Anniversary on PS4 though.
  13. It says I'll the trailer "Captain Spirit is a free demo of Life Is Strange 2". I thought at first it was gonna be a standalone, multi-episode thing with the first episode being free. I guess not! Anyway it looks splendid and I'm looking forward to it.

    E3 2018: Xbox E3 Briefing

    That was all pretty excellent. I've not enjoyed a Halo since 2 but I'd be willing to get the new one as a palate cleanser accompaniment to Forza Horizon 4, which looks absolutely phenomenal. And Edinburgh is in there too! Can't wait to relive my PGR2 memories. I'll likely pick up a One X in October for Horizon. Then I can finally play Cuphead, with an adorable new character being added as well. Lovely.

    E3 2018: Xbox E3 Briefing

    Made some guacamole for some chicken wraps. Yoshinori Ono of Capcom just tweeted that he's at the Xbox conference so I'm suddenly quite excited. I'm hoping against all odds that they'll announce Street Fighter V with online crossplay but it'll probably be nothing.
