Lucario is back? Just in time for a mafia game!

Love Lego City Undercover! The only thing it is missing is a 2-player co-op mode like all of the other games have. Maybe we can get a sequel for the NX?

Wait, its already over? I thought it also ran Sunday? What a let down.

$35 is stuck in my mind, though the price may have varied depending on the game since game prices hadn't quite standardized by that point. Star Fox w/ Super FX Chip may have cost more than other games.

Hoping to play some tonight and tomorrow so I can get in on the Splatfest action. Probably around 4/5pm PDT.

So I couldn't get on this weekend due to life reasons (and my one window being taken up by all of the new updates downloading and installing...), but I finally got some games in last night. Boy does this have potential! The gyroscope controls are interesting, but I defaulted to non-motion for the night after a few trials. Pretty excited to get some more games in this weekend for the final splatfest.

Also remember you can "transfer" weak duplicate monsters for extra candy. Helps with some of those rarer monsters to get to required number for evolution.

Don't bother "leveling up" any monsters unless you need to give one a little boost for a gym battle.

Also note that "XL" monsters have extra HP and defense, "XS" has extra speed and attack. The curving white bar above each monster shows their "potential": how much they gain upon evolution or leveling up. the farther around this bar is, the more growth potential a monster has.

But doesn't that describe us regulars on here too? Everyone is leering at something in here.

Did you ever try C-stick mode? Does it play similar to other FPS titles or do its own thing as well?

If you want I'd live to join you for some hunts some time. I've been itching for some console MH action and I still have a few things I need to finish in 3U.

I'd be game for this, but have a hard time scheduling sessions (or playing at decent hours of the day) because of family commitments. 

What were you looking to finish off? 

I'm just bumming my way though the early G-Rank quests now, so not an accomplished hunter. No special goals for me, although getting some upgraded armor would be good. (Usually prefer to not get hit, but being rusty and moving into G-Rank is making that harder than it used to be.)  Bow user, decent but not great (need to be more efficient and up damage output or will run into timing issues with 3+ monsters in a quest). Usually play solo.

Sorry, thought I replied to this but guess I didn't. I'm mostly hoping to clear the last G-Rank, hunt some Brachy and Abyssal Lagi, and just enjoy MH on the big screen in HD while dabbling in weapons I nver fully got into before. I really wish we could get a new console Monster Hunter (hoping Nintendo can pull off getting MH5 on the NX).

I'm most free on Mondays and Tuesdays, but I could also find time Saturday and Sunday afternoon/evening.

Just finished re-learning the super basics and doing the one star quests in Monster Hunter Generations. MH4U was my first Monster Hunter game and I was enjoying it, but I stopped around the 15 hour mark (which is to say before I really got into learning much beyond the super basics) because I was swamped in games that I just wanted to play more than it. Like most reviews have mentioned, this feels like nearly identical to MH4U (at least at the basic level beyond things like Hunter Arts and Hunting Styles) and I'm enjoying it much the same. It feels like a good game to play regularly on the side and hopefully taking that approach instead of trying to blast through it in a short period of time like I do most games will help me stick with it. If anyone wants to jump online later, let me know!

I still have not fired up my copy but I will have to add you so we can hunt some time. I'm also open to playing the older games so if you wanted to go back and finish 4U I'm game for that as well. There is always plenty for me to do in these games and I can just enjoy the thrill of the hunt and weapon collecting.

I would also attribute the low attach rate for handhelds to all of the little tykes whom were bought one system with one game as more of a toy than an actual console intended to have a collection of games.

I am still surprised how many toddlers (1-4 year olds) I have seen with a DSi, DSiXL, 3DS, or New 3DS and it seems a lot of them have one game, like a Mario or Lego title.

I'd never buy a kid that young their own $100+ device like that because they tend to lose or break them much more easily.

Hasn't Nintendo stated that Pokemon Go will work with Sun/Moon? This could lay the groundwork for some more advanced connections with NX titles. Imagine a game like the Wiiware Pokemon Farm game where you could store pokemon there, or the online Box subscription services.

Finished watching Shannara Chronicles on Netflix. I loved the original books and enjoyed the show for the most part. I just wish MTV hadn't been the publisher because a few of the creative choices just felt too cheesy (why is a pop song playing during the height of the finale?)

I have hopes it can improve in S2 but it looks like they will be going off book and "extending" the story. S1 was a retelling of Elfstones of Shannara, but they finished that book and left plot holes open for S2. The next book takes place a generation or so later so they may drag the current plots out a bit.

But the show does succeed in making itself very distinct from other epic fantasy such as Tolkien, which is good for the show. Smart of them to skip the first book (Sword of Shannara) as that one had a few too many parallels to Lord of the Rings and people would have been bored with it. Author Terry Brooks really brought the world into its own place in book 2/3 and the show is capitalizing on it.

The show is also refreshing in its bright colors instead of the drab scenery many other fantasy stories fall into. Feels more imaginative.

Nintendo is updating Animal Crossing New Leaf with amiibo functionality. The cards will give you your pick of characters who can move in. No word on what figures will do.

I really want to watch Marco Polo, but I I've got too many other shows to watch still. Almost done with AoS.

Go Team Red!

It is so volatile in my area that is is hard to tell which was preferred. Blue and Yellow seem to have more "hardcore" players where I live and they are constantly roaming around town fighting over the same gyms. Red is stronger up north but they seem to not be as advanced as the others down south.

I want a health amount of all teams so there will always be gyms to take over or train at.

Use Tenso. They are a routing service that gives a physical Japanese address to ship to and then they mail your goods to the US. Amiibo Redditors highly recommend it for ordering Japanese merch. You can also order from other Japanese sites as well. I have not used it personally, but I hear the rates they charge are reasonable.

Looking forward to it! It's been a while since we have played a game together, GK.

The name comes before the title so I hadn't read that yet. Also, I read on the mobile "Lite" version half of the time and name colors and titles do not appear on that version, as well as images.

I'll wait on Khush's lead before doing any startups or anything, though any unique ideas I had before have long escaped my mind, so I'll probably do a rather vanilla game.

I once tried to convince a few bygone members to return for a forum game. Would be fun to get folks back for a bout of mafia.

Do you need a separate login for Amazon Japan?

Not that I heard. You just have to go to the amazon jp site and login there for it to work. Not all items can be shipped to states though.

You don't have to brave eBay, just use Amazon Japan. You can now order from them and ship to the states. There are also other sites like AmiAmi where you can typically order for reasonable prices.

I completely forgot that I signed up to host! So, since Pokepal is launching a new mafia when should I shoot to start this?
