>one of the problems is youtubers immediate dismissal of all systems not made by Sony, Nintendo, or Microsoft.

eh.  Every single system ever is met by doom and gloom by some segment of the online population.  Even those made by the big three.

The difference is, you don't see Bowser or Furukawa rolling around, swinging mud at their online "haters".  Because doing so only gives them a platform and lets then drive the narrative.

Look at how much hate and derision the Wii got when they unveiled it... yet, it was barely acknowledged by Nintendo.

Look at the initial reactions to the XBone presentation... even when Microsoft did acknowledge the negative press, they didn't attack the people themselves, but they addressed the criticisms and even made positive changes based on those criticisms.

Now, with the Amico, when people bring up concerns like input lag on the controller, the conversation shifts from that to how Tommy has haters who are out to destroy his company because they're a bunch of racists who send his family death threats and Nintendo allows rape and child porn on their systems.

And, man, I just wanna play games.  I don't even care if there's a bit of lag.  ****, I own ROB.... you wanna talk input lag.  Is it playable?  Are the games fun?  Show me the games are fun.  That's all I need to know.

I'm really disappointed with the amico.  Like, it's been delayed - that's neither surprising nor deal breaking - but...

What should be re-release hype where we're looking at game footage and sizzle reels has come down to constant bickering and squabbles between various mediocre small youtubers, other various mediocre small youtubers, and Tommy Tallarico himself.

I just wanna play fun games, not get invested in pissy youtube drama.

There's two main amico subreddits, one is virtually a mouthpiece for corporate approved messaging and the other is just where everyone shits on everything amico or Tommy Tallarico related.

There's really no where to stay tuned for game-only news without the editorialized bullshit.


For a family-friendly console that's supposed to harken back to the golden days of gaming, it sure seems lost in modern garbage.

So John Walker kills a man in an international country, which should be a MASSIVE diplomatic incident (the Black Panther storyline through Civil War and BP1)... not to mention all the bad social media presence that would cause. We saw the Dora Milaje track down Zemo and explicitly say "we have jurisdiction where we say we have it".... but John just walked off after episode 6 like nobody noticed him or knew who he was.

That stuck out a lot to me.

I mean, he killed a terrorist.

I'm not saying what he did was okay.  But what he did is what America does all the time.  Freaking presidents bomb weddings and kill kids while wearing their Nobel Peace Prize.

This shouldn't shock you or anyone in the International community.

I find Wanda's actions and lack of repercussions more shocking than Walker's.

Yeah, I loved the series, but "subtle" was not in the writer's bag o' tricks.

I was angry at the end when they called Sharon "Agent Carter".  Come on, Disney.  You know we want Agent Carter Season 3.  Like, too soon man.

I have a sin to confess.

I derailed BnM's thread with bad your mom jokes.

Please forgive me.

You know who you are and you know what you did!!!

Now come in here and confess your SINS!!!!

Tell us what you did and why you did it.
Your mum.  Why?  Look at her.  I'd have to be crazy not to.

You suck, Konami.

Gotta give Sony props.  No way Nintendo would have reversed course on a public decision like this.

And three pics I forgot from the first album:

I purchased Starlink on sale at Best Buy for $5, but for the life of me, I cannot find where I've put it.  Wondering if I packed it up with my Skylanders. :/

I own an n2Elite, which lets me use... backups... of amiibo, and it's a great device, but...

I'm really thinking about ordering like 200 blank NFC cards and self-loading data for every figure onto them and packing them under the blister pack inside the retroprotection boxes.  This allows me to "use" the figures while keeping everything all pretty.

<Robinhood enters the chat>

Tobey is cast as... Mephisto... who wants Peter's marriage with MJ in exchange for removing everyone's memories of JJJ broadcasting his secret identity.

Oh, spoilers.  Sorry folks.

Hey whilhorst, you say:

>Three (regular) cards will be included as a first-print bonus, and an amiibo card is offered as a pre-order bonus.

But that's not in the OG Siliconera article.  What's your secret source on this? 🤣


Here's hoping Konami doesn't pull a Konami and release five different cards as preorder bonuses at five different retailers. 🤣

Outside of those super rare prize amiibo in Japan, nope.  197 figures (plus a few dupes), 5 plushes (plus one dupe), six wrist bands, 558 cards (plus some number of dupes), and one cereal box.

Dan is expecting more cases for the original size boxes by the end of May.  I still need 45 more myself. :(

This kickstarter popped on my radar this morning.  I'm in.

I'm working on rearranging my amiibo collection.  Getting everything into cases from, adding some shelves, trying to tidy it up a bit.  Figured I might share some pics.

>Super Mario Deluxe is probably the best version of Super Mario Bros out there and there is so much unlockable content and ways to play.

I have a love/hate relationship to this game.  I agree, with all the unlockables (including the majority of Lost Levels, although they've been modified to be easier), the hidden Yoshi eggs. red coins, etc... oh, and the Multi-Player mode is soooo much fun (but it requires two copies of the game and two GameBoys, of course)... it is a great version of the game.

All that said, the way they handled the screen size is... ugh.  It's a terrible way to play Mario.  I would love a re-release that keeps all the unlockables (perhaps some changes to the GameBoy Printer stuff, obviously), but fixes the screen ratio.  It will absolutely never happen, but it would be great.

Was Sam trying to talk Karli down in an attempt to befriend her and planning on letting her and her pals go if they promised to be good, or was the plan to talk her down and get her to turn herself in?

Super Mario Land 2 is missing from your list.  1 is.... I'd say it didn't age well, but man, it wasn't that good at the time.

I honestly think this would be worse than Tetris 99; not in the sense of the subject (I like Pac-Man), but the fact that you are playing it with 98 other people (Tetris was fine for that matter) sounds atrocious.

I played a few rounds last night.  It was fun, but chaotic.  A lot going on on the screen and it's awfully small.  I need to play it docked and see if I can do better.  I did manage 3rd place though.

>Wakka wakka wakka with 98 other jerks.

Title of my sex tape?
