Wow.  I was really all "WTF", now I'm just all "SMH", but soon I will be all "LOL".

OMG! You too?

I'd bite on a Yooka-Laylee release. I skipped the digital purchase because it came so late, but now that I've beat Odyssey's main story I can picture picking this game up.

Also, I'm feeling the same way as others about the diminishing value of physical games. Add the portable nature of the Switch and I'm really feeling the urge to go all digital. The only things keeping me mostly physical is price (physical games get discounted much more often and by a larger margin) and storage space (which is also expensive to expand properly).

Though I could see myself dropping $100 on a 512gb sd card in a few years, but not anytime in the near future.

Oh man! When can I buy the 1TB cards?!?

A lot of people are hating on Thanos' look, but I don't mind it. What are your thoughts on Thanos' design?

Nick Cage Superman is in that same alternate reality where we got Billy D Williams as Two Face in a third Burton/Batman flick.

I'm mostly torn on the port/new discussion because I am tempted to pick up the 3DS version as an appetizer to Smash-Switch (Swatch? Swash? Smatch?), but why waste the money if the new Smash has everything that one offered? I technically don't own the Wii U or 3DS versions, as I've just been borrowing Smash U from my sister long-term (she gets Mario Kart 8 in return).

When I finally got around to thinking about picking up SmUsh myself the Switch was upon us and with the announcement of MK8D I've been waiting for a port announcement before spending the money.

Every game has at least one "WTF" character like Wii Fit Trainer, Rob, Duck Hunt Dog, Mr Game & Watch. I can see the Snipperclips pair being the "WTF" character for this Smash.

I also fully expect every alumni player possible to return, because that should be a priority. Wolf, Snake, and Ice Climbers need to be in.

People are overstating the "same engine" concept. It can use the same core engine and be an entirely new experience. The question is the included content of the game. If they spent all the time just adding/balancing/retooling the roster and building new levels and game modes it could feel like an entirely new game even if the core engine is the same.

I'm hoping it refreshes some of the older characters. Mario, Link, and Luigi could use some new movesets more relevant to their recent titles. They could even be clever about it. Dr Mario/Young Link could retain the bulk of the "classic smash" Mario/Link and allow the primary character slots be filled with a new Mario and Link that incorporate mechanics from Odyssey and BotW (or go the Game & Watch direction and make an 8-bit Mario/Link for the classic moves).

Luigi should really get some heavy Poltergust action added to his moveset, what with the new 3DS game on the horizon.

Ganondorf should really be remade from the ground up; give him a sword or some magic attacks.

Smash is coming!!!

Lots of great titles. I almost don't care they are mostly ports. I have been meaning to buy Treasure Trackers so I'm happy to see this coming. Thinking I might hold off on buying up old Wii U titles at the rate we are seeing ports.

Okami is very welcome, especially glad to see the motion controls included. Hopefully we get a remake of the DS sequel on Switch later. Always hated its lack of analog support.

Diablo is a great co-op game. I don't think I've played more than a few hours of a Diablo-style (isometric dungeon crawler?) game in single player.

Oh man! Diablo would be awesome! I'm about to drop some cash on Doom finally. Only thing holding me back is school, I'll be too tempted to play. Just gotta hold out a few more weeks and I'll snag it for spring break.

Glad The Tick part 2 finally came out. I was a little irked at how they staggered the release of the season. I'm not so sure if generated the hype or build up they were hoping for.

As we've learned from Star Wars, it doesn't matter what the director intended, as so long as it is not shown/spoken to be so they can make it whatever they want down the road. Not that it really changes his character much.

I'm actually tempted to pick this up if enough of my online buddies do the same. Sounds fun, and I don't think the older version will bog down my fun.

I would love a new Boom Blox on Switch. Those were great party games.

Idk anything about A Wrinkle In Time, but the trailers look really stupid.

From what I remember, that is also a challenge with this book. I recall it being very light on the action and more "heady" and philosophical than most books of that age-range.

If we get a Smash this year, it will be a port. If it won't come until 2019, then odds are it is a new title.

I hope it does well because I loved the book as a kid, and it is a trilogy, and it sucks when the first in a series pans enough they don't continue it.

I still need to get around to picking this up, glad I waited so I can enjoy the full game with motion and the other enhancements.

It was revealed the plans had backup plans as well in the event they won back rights to their other properties.

I'm hoping a post-weekend adjustment puts BP at 200m.

Got our tickets and we'll be seeing it tonight! Oh yeah!

You think this will include the level editor that was cut from the Wii U version? Also, what does this mean for Two Tribes, as I thought they were closing down after Rive?

The only thing holding it back would be a lack of optimized code or a refusal to reduce the advanced graphics down a notch for performance. Doom and Wolfenstein prove the Switch can handle these high graphic games, but you need a competent team to port it and there are some sacrifices that have to be made.

It could be that their code is so wildly un-optimized that no one could hope to get it running in an acceptable state on the system.

Reporting for duty!
