Would also be a great pairing for a Smash for Switch up-port w/ Cloud amiibo.

Looks awesome, but very Marel-ey. Much better than Amazing Spidey, but I'll forever have a soft spot for the Raimi trilogy for their modern campiness.

So they should have done what Fire Emblem/Zelda/Mario/Final Fantasy do and just make each game a stand-alone story (obviously not counting direct sequels). Could have been the start of the Chrono series, a place where Square could feel free to experiment with the RPG formula versus the almost archaic Dragon Quest.

I feel like this is justice for some old title I had which was brought on by her at sometime. I'll just take this as a victory...

Good thoughts Khush, I like the general order you have in mind. Also agree that we should keep Console and Handheld separate for now. Even once the 3DS ends, there will still be the apps, which best fit into the handheld catagory (maybe rename it to mobile or portable?)

I especially like the movement of the introductions threat to the top. It is not prominently displayed and people may miss it buried in a sub-forum. You should also add the Birthday thread to the Introduction sub as that is a welcoming feature for new folks looking to connect. I believe it drew several people out of lurker status when Maxi wished them a happy birthday.

Something we should also consider building into this reorg is all of the "networking" threads. Gamertags, NNIDs, Friend Codes, maybe unify it all, or just place the "master" thread in a prominent place linking to each different type of specific tag group.

Lastly, we should look at having a place for online matchmaking and smaktalk further up, so more people use it. I would also hope we begin trying to get some new tournaments going as well, which could go with the smaktalk thread.

Let me know how well it plays. I picked it up new a few years back and never got around to playing. I liked the design choices, but was bothered about the lack of connection to the first title. I might jump in soon if it is still in a "playable" state (not too terrible load times, not so jaggie I could be cut by someone's hair).

I don't think the walk-through will save you with ET :P

Please give us a collection... it would surely get a lot of people to bite who missed one of the previous games.

Mop it up should get her title changed to something pessimistic about amiibo functionality ;)

It won't, because Nintendo will follow their MO of announcing this "great new system with VC support" and then only release 3-4 titles we slightly care about and "surprise us" with Double Dash a two and a half years later, giving us hope for a revival, only for us to be disappointed for another 3-4 years... ;)

THQ Nordic is working on two games for the Switch. Me thinks it's a port of the first Darksiders and a remaster of some obscure Gamecube/PS2 era game.

This tells me enough to decide to not buy the Wii U edition until Switch launch just to be sure. I have DS2 digital on my Wii U, but I'd love to get a physical combo pack of 1 & 2 on Switch.

The TI calculators have great, albeit aged, processors. The 83/84 calcs had the very same processors as the original Gameboy and could actually be programmed to run Mario and Legend of Zelda games. The refresh rate was a bit slow and in monochrome, but the technical abilities were there.

TI  calculators use the programming language BASIC, which is a very simple and great way for a young person to learn about the fundamentals of programming. Granted, there are better ways to learn now (Code Academy and other free online classes) but it is still useful. Plus it gives you a portable, tangible runtime environment to show off to others to see what you can do. For me, showing off my games felt like I was programming for the Gameboy (at least I like to think that).

That might be why they are being stingy with benefits from currently released amiibo. The BotW figures seem much more ambitious and they want to guarantee they sell well--despite the fact people have a frothing demand for quality, authentic Nintendo merch.

I still picked up the 8-bit Link just because I had it pre-ordered and like the 8-bit design line, but it does guarantee I would get the others.

I would imagine any dry-up would be related to the slow migration to digital games. The desire and market demand has not gone away, but there are less and less titles to release into said market, forcing it to dry up.

A dark souls trilogy would be very sweet, i wouldn't mind double dipping souls 3 if i have the ability to play the other 2 which i haven't played.

I only just bought the complete DS2 and have yet to start it so I'll be more than happy if a full trilogy gets announced for Switch.

They already confirmed what Wolf link would do. Scanning it gives you a wolf partner and the heart level is as high as your heart level was when you completed the wolf challenge dungeon for Twilight Princess HD. By far the coolest amiibo feature to-date.

I had hoped that Ocarina Link would give you Epona as a mount and Wind Waker Link would give you a boat similar to the King of Red Lions boat for navigating rivers and lakes.

I suspect that it may be that someone with the know-how has to get the individual game to talk, so yes, it is probably only popular games.

A pity because I'd love to play some more BWII.

Oh, and we both forgot to mention that this movie is absolutely GORGEOUS.
The islands, the water, the sky, and the hair. It was all so well done.

and I'm just now finding out that there was supposedly an after-credits scene. So if you go watch it, stick around for that.

Yes, it was breathtaking, and we saw it in 3D which was a real treat. The tropical setting made for a great, colorful setting. And yes, the hair rendering is amazing. I am impressed with how far the hair tech has advanced. It looked great wet, which was a new thing for me.

Depends on how it is done. In the right hands it could be good. I doubt they would do both though because the films would be competing against each other (unless they decide to stagger them and treat Rose Red as a "sequel" of sorts.

If Beauty $ the Beast knocks it out of the park, you can bet a musical retelling of Snow White will get the priority over Rose Red.

Is that real? Too awesome!

Khushrenada. A Terrific Mod. For a Terrible Funhouse.

Make The Funhouse Terrible Again! Khush-Lucario 2016!

Disney was working on a version of Snow White in 2012 called Order of the Seven. It was slated to release shortly after those other recent Snow White movies did (Snow White and the Huntsman, Mirror Mirror) but production delays and other financial issues led to it being cancelled. A pity because it looked to be the best of the three with an Asian Kung-Fu theme.

Purportedly there are two different Snow Whites being prepared by Disney now. A classic retelling like Beauty and the Beast, and a "sidequel" called Rose Red starring Snow White's sister which has her going on a quest with Grumpy the dwarf to find a cure to Snow White's curse.

Slightly related, I know that LEGO Force Awakens on Wii U does not have the DLC available...and that is tragic as a lot of Clone Wars/Rebels characters were relegated to the DLC and they were who I wanted the most.

That was close Silenced, but good game! Almost had you there.

Nah! Lets end this thing with song lyrics!

Taste like sugar, but it's Novocaine
She's grinding teeth
So she can sharpen the pain
White lights, train wreck
Black lips, pale eyes
Cyanide sweet tooth suicide
She's a killer
She is mine
Cyanide sweet tooth suicide
