This laptop is old enough to get it's first pokemon from Professor Oak and start it's Pokemon Journey. They grow up so fast.

Remember when New Super Mario. Bros. was new?

Nintendo Gaming / The 3DS 10th Anniversary Thread

As an official 3DS ambassador I come bringing good news about the 3DS. Beware the so called "successor" The Nintendo Switch. It is nothing but a false prophet.

General Gaming / The Winter of 2cold4gamez! (community event)
« on: February 17, 2021, 03:01:50 PM »
Beginning on Wednesday, Feburary 17th, I plan to stop buying new games for about a 40 day stretch which will end on Sunday, March 28th. This is an opportunity to focus on my backlog and appreciate the games I have instead of buying way too many games I'm never going to get around to as I often do. I would like to call upon others to do the same so we can make a fun community thing out of this.

I will not deny that this event is somewhat inspired by the Christian tradition of Lent, in which Christians embark on a symbolic 40 day journey through the desert by giving up something that's important to them. However, as many of you who are reading this know, religious discussion is banned on the Nintendo World Report forums. There is a time and a place for that kind of discussion and it is not in the Nintendo World Report Forums. If I did not believe that this could be a fun community event on it's own merits, than I wouldn't be proposing this idea.

How this works:

The idea is simple: Each person who signs up earns six points for the Nintendo World Report community. Any games purchased by someone who signed up for this between now and March 28th will cost the community three points. However, there is also a way to earn points. Should someone complete a game they already own, they will earn the community one point. I would like to turn this into an annual event so eventually we will have a sort of leaderboard to compare our current score to previous years and try to get new records and stuff like that. I think it'll be a fun time.

In the meantime, I'm going to set a preliminary goal for the community of 0 points. Let's see if we can hit that baseline.

This forum software is literally 10 years old now. This is completely unacceptable!

Granted we're in the middle of a month right now but everyone is probably going to keep their avatar until the next Mafia game/Avatar event anyways so I don't see why it matters.

Nintendo Gaming / poll: How many Wii U ports have you double dipped on?
« on: February 06, 2021, 12:46:04 AM »
So how many Wii U ports have y'all double dipped on? I have BOTW, Assassin's Creed 4, Lego City Undercover, Rayman Legends, NSMBU, Hyrule Warriors, Mario Kart 8, TMS, and pretty soon I'll have 3D World.

Xenoblade Chronicles X is the last game I'm likely to double dip on though if it comes over. The Zelda remakes work too well with the gamepad, Pikmin 3 works too well with the Wii Pointer, and everything else just isn't something I feel strongly enough about to want to buy again.

Stop it!

Edit: You mean I'm getting voted out now in Mafia?


It's December, and that means it's time to celebrate Indie-Cember all month long! I should've posted this sooner so you all could sign up in advance, but hopefully you can understand that life has been a little hectic lately.

What is Indie-Cember? Well, it's a lot like our other themed months here at Nintendo World Report. You tell the group which indie games you're playing this month, and then post about the games as you're playing them. I'll update this post with our progress as the month continues!

So I decided I wanna take a stab at possibly 100%ing Hypnospace Outlaw which is kind of a difficult feat.

But I figure there's gotta be someone else who's in a similar boat or is just looking for an excuse to get back into the game so I figure we can put our heads together and find all the hidden pages in the game.

For example, if you search "Bees" in the search thing you'll find not one, not two, but three hidden pages about bees.

General Gaming / Shocktober 2020: Play scary games here.
« on: September 30, 2020, 07:58:49 PM »
Shocktober - A Month-Long Journey Through The Horror Game Genre

Some may say the real world is scary enough in 2020, but I won't let that stop us!

When does this start?

Shocktober begins on October 1st, and will last the entire month of October, ending after Halloween night.

What should I play?

Anything remotely spooky or halloweeny will suffice. If horror isn't your thing than there's plenty of stuff like the Castlevania series or Demon's Crest that will also fit the bill. This is basically a themed Backlaugust but the focus is more on playing games and sharing your experiences than beating them.

Who should participate?

If you:

a. Enjoy horror games
b. Have at least one horror game in your backlog
c. Plan on buying a new horror game
d. Have something remotely halloweeny

you should do this!

The purpose of this is a little less about seeing how many games we can beat, but for everyone to share in the experience of playing something scary. A good horror game can be a tough thing to get all of the way through to the end, but with some moral support from the rest of the community that's going through the same thing, maybe we can all make it back into the light by November! That's what it comes down to -- having fun, and being scared shitless. And being scared shitless is a lot more fun when being scared shitless as a group.

I'm playing through this on the DS version on the Wii U Virtual Console. It's been a real hoot. I like playing a version of Mario 64 wherere the camera isn't an absolute nightmare and the extra characters and stuff they added are real fun as well. I definitely want to dabble with the original more. I know I have a save from the Wii VC version that was in the castle's second floor that I could pull up to mess around with some of the later stages but honestly, the DS version having a functioning camera system really puts it over the edge for me.

The original game is impressive as hell for it's time, and I do feel it took a while for time to catch up with it, but as gaming has evolved more and more, it's age has started to show more and more.

I have more than 200 games on my Switch so it's basically unmanageable now. It's absurd that we've gotten so far into the Switch's lifespan without getting folders. I don't understand what the hold up is. It's inexcusable.

I just got Hades on my PC. I would greatly prefer to play it on switch but I'm at the point where I am actively trying to avoid buying games on my Switch because it's just impossible to manage a large library on it.

I was at the Battle of Gamefaqs. The enemy barraged us with scratched discs and nearly finished us off with their dreaded Red Rings of Death. It's a miracle I'm still here today.

General Chat / Tim Epic vs. Tim Apple: Title fight!
« on: August 17, 2020, 09:50:50 PM »
I was wondering where all that Fortnite money was going since it certainly didn't go to the Epic Games Store.

I think the Switch remake needs at least 8 more imprisoned fights. If it was so nice that we had to have it thrice than I say the more the merrier. Maybe we can even have a spin-off like Captain Toad where you just fight the imprisoned for 60 stages.

Apparently this game had an amazon listing at some point for Switch so let's talk about it. I gave my true thoughts minus the usual hyperbole I throw at this game and they are as follows:

Skyward Sword is the only 3D Zelda left that hasn't been remade already outside of BOTW and the Switch's joycons can accommodate that game's bizarre fascination with motion controls. Even as someone who despises that game with a passion, it does seem appropriate to remake it now.

Plus, this way more people will see how shitty that game was and it will have a lower barrier of entry since presumably this time it won't need an extra accessory like motion plus to play it.

What do you think? I for one am happy to have any opportunity to dunk on that game and I can't wait to see new players discover how shitty that game really is.

Apparently he didn't like the Canada Goose one we gave him so I guess we're going back to the drawing board. I say we go back to my brilliant idea of giving him an Ace of Seafood avatar with the new custom title: The Funhouse Cod.
