I was going to vote for Khush too but I don't want to start an actual bandwagon over a joke so I guess I'll just hold off for now.
Actually I think the idea of a marching band riding around in a wagon sounds quite amusing.

If the band is riding in a wagon, how can they be marching?

I could understand making it seasonal, as a number of items do that to decent effect. Though you aren't struggling to find one when they are IN season.

Sorry I no-showed, it rolled much later than expected so I was too plumb exhausted to play when I got home. We'll need to be sure we play soon though.

That's exactly what I meant, killing the NES Mini made room for the SNES Mini in their production schedule.

I think that is a sign that we will see people start taking over the "mantle" for Iron-Man, Cap, Hawkeye, and other long-standing heroes. They do it in the comics, and it is a perfect way to send off older actors while keeping the "character" intact. Falcon could become new Iron-Man or sorts, Buckey could be a new Cap, and after a few Spidey movies they could replace Peter with a new actor+character named Miles.

I had entertained the idea of leaving my system and game on to create a "server world" of sorts for friends to drop in and out of on Wii U. I've done it with Animal Crossing to help friends get all the badges, and it worked out fairly well.

This games sounds like it gets better and better all the time. I've been on the fence with the game, I'll probably pick it up at a discount soon.

For me it doesn't matter. They burned my goodwill with the NES Mini fiasco. And this is a long line of issues trying to buy their merchandise as a fan. I will not be trying to get an SNES mini.

I let it pass with amiibo, as the effort to produce that many figures in such detail is understandable, and they seem to have production issues under control for the most part.

But so many other products are hard to find or sold out instantly. And when it happens for so long, blame falls on Nintendo. Limited editions sell out in seconds, yet scalpers seem to have unlimited copies (Majora's Mask 3DS, Fire Emblem). That is a gross miscalculation of demand.

That...makes me sad. It really isn't that hard to go to a farmers market. And it is also UN-healthy to exclusively drink the juice of fruits and veggies. You loose out on a lot of key vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients when you only drink the "juice" of produce. What ARE you getting? All of the plant's sugar, and too much sugar -even from fruits- is too much sugar. You should really eat whole fruits and veggies. It is also one of the best ways to get fiber.

I mostly button mash and don't have too much of an issue with the degradation. If anything, I have an issue using all my good weapons, as the space is super limited.

I am taking the day off, but will be spending the evening with a pair of friends. It is our birthday month so we are going out to Red Robin to get free birthday burgers. We are all married with kids (except no kids for me yet!) so I don't expect us to be out too late, so I'll reach out when I get back.

Most conversation I have read seems to point to the need to balance yet another online ecosystem/shop. And they personally demand that all of the console systems has equal updates. It is challenging enough to co-ordinate Microsoft and Sony's approval system, adding in Nintendo's, with their very strict (and sometimes odd) parameters it would be very challenging to keep all three on a unified update cycle.

Thatguy! You should join us for some Monster Hunter as well. GP and Maxi returned.

I didn't mind the weapon durability too much, but it would have been nice if successful fury attacks and other critical hits caused less damage to your weapon than a normal attack, to encourage people to "fight better" and make weapons last.

For me it really comes down to convenience, playtime potential,and party factor when it comes to ports. Mario Kart is a major party game so it was heavily skewed towards getting re-bought.

Games I have played and beaten completely are not going to pull me back in the same way. Smash would fall into a similar boat, because I would prefer to only drag one system around for party/group play. But Wonderful 101, Bayonetta 1/2, and Pikmin 3 would not because I can just fire up the old system at home.

Glad they patched it back in, hope I didn't miss any of it in my play through. I just finished the photo/surveillance mission against the Chen gang.

We don't care what level you are at, many of us are happy to downgrade to help you along.

Seems like a curious change of tone. Hopefully it doesn't go too far into CW territory, as they've burned me out of the teen/20-something drama shtick for a while.

NES Mini had to die because Nintendo did not want to commit more factory/manufacturing resources to a second one of these systems. Especially since they want to devote most of their resources to making more Switches.

I think the SNES Mini will suffer the same fate as the NES Mini for a long while. But I do think they will begin rotating the availability of the two devices periodically similar to how Disney rotates their classic films on DVD.

I have him as a friend on Steam. I'll reach out tonight and see if we can pull him back in.

The sound issue seems to be tied to going in and out of sleep mode, and restarting the game seemed to fix it for me.

Definitely glad I grabbed it as the co-op has been great. It does slow-down when you are both doing different things, but seems to stay between 25-30 fps. It never distracted us from enjoying the game.

I mean, you're already wrong. Kaplan and the Overwatch team have already said they won't announce anything or be at E3 this year.

Well of course they did.  How else would it be a surprise?  Think about it.

Just because THEY aren't going to be there and THEY aren't announcing anything does not mean that Nintendo won't be the ones announcing the partnership/release. Could be a big win, but judging from other comments about them being open to development means that if they agree it will still be a good while before we see the game release (thinking 2018).

Whether it is Summer or later, I think we'll see Smash before the end of the year. It could be a great complimentary title to release with Mario Odyssey this Fall.

Nintendo could use that period to launch Virtual Console, but this at least lends more plausibility to the optimistic view that they have one or two aces left up their sleeve for this year.

We saw the announcement of the final Smash amiibo, and I think that the Summer release of them is no coincidence. I think there will be two big game reveals and one of them is going to be an enhanced Smash port to go along with those amiibo.

The first one I got was from the Elephant Guardian. I thought aww man this will make the game too easy. It took one large group of Bokoblins and one Lynell for me to turn that ship around. I don't know if having that ability emboldens me to do more but I feel like now with all of my know how and super high defenses I get killed more often than ever now.

I use the elephant one as my indicator if I'm in over my head or not.  If I end up using it it's like "okay, time to get out of here".  The cooldown is long but works well enough in that when I'm exploring I usually won't find big trouble again until it's recharged.

I have only one tower left.  It's kind of sad because unlocking the map is my favourite part and I'm almost done.

Mipha's Grace is my climbing helper. I like to push my stamina to the limit, and that leads to falls. Falls over ravines. Ravines filled with water, which I drown in. Mipha's Grace saves me from a fall/drown/death accident which I can commonly get myself into.
