Are new panels exciting? Is that a sexy topic for discussion? Apparently it is when those new panels may be OLED screens for a NEW AND IMPROVED SWITCH!!! As Switch now begins Year 5 on the market, the rumors of a Switch 2 that have been happening since 2018 are going to get even louder and the biggest noise maker in awhile is this report on Nintendo ordering OLED displays from Bloomberg News. It's what all the cool kids are talking about so you better make sure you are part of the conversation if you don't want to be lame. Now that's what I call Topic of the Day!

Today I'm going to highlight a Best of the Wii U thread like I often seem to do here. The final edition of examining the Wii U's GBA VC came out awhile ago. Yet with a lot of news and rumors coming up this week, it may have been overlooked a bit even though it is the section that has most of the GBA gems as far as I'm concerned. Vote on the poll and add your thoughts if you can. (I still need to finish adding my thoughts to Part 2  :-[ ) Topic of the Day!

Lately I've been taking the week-ends off for Topic of the Day. Not sure that's going to change anytime soon as I kind of like the break in-between. However, it used to be that I would some of the top reviewed games for a week in the old Weekend Reading format. Without that, I guess I need to highlight them more during the week.

Last week, I mentioned there had only been three games to get a review score of 9.0 or higher this year. Well, we just got another and judging by the forum thread view count, I don't think many users are aware of it.

The name of the game is Everhood. It looks strange and it got a 9.5 review. And while not every game can get a perfect 10/10 score like Safe Words on these forums, it might still be worth reading up and seeing if it is for you after inspiring Riskman64 like that.

I really feel like today's topic should be a warning of how XCX can get pretty addictive once you start getting skells for you and your party. The game has got me back to my XC:DE summer of just wanting to keep diving back to that world and doing more world conquering. I'll just a play for a couple hours, I say. And then it's been almost 7 hours and I've got no Topic of the Day posted.  :-[

Well, to make up for it, here's two topics for today. The first is a reminder to not miss out on your chance to criticize the N64 and its games as users discuss Mop it up's least favorite console. How any of those N64 VC games could be considered the Best of the Wii U is beyond... DK64 is among them? Oh.... well then. Looks like this series is finally get to the Best stuff after all.

The second topic is an important PSA about the significance of March 10.

That's it! You've all been Topic of the Day'd now! My work here is done.

Well, took an unofficial week off but am back again. Actually meant to post this last week but didn't finish writing it up and then after a couple days it seemed easier to wait for a week to go by. Check the timestamps. My story checks out!

Anyways, with that ado out of the way, today's topic is the return of the Run the Series series of threads, the Ace Attorney series edition. I hope there will be no objections. Hiiii-yoooo!! Topic of the yesterDays.

For today's topic, I'm going to go with what I meant to do last Friday and that is highlight the review for Bravely Default II. One of the bigger 2021 titles announced from last year and it has finally arrived. Topic of the Day!

A little bit behind the times as I still play some catch-up on topics but did want to highlight the Best of the Wii U: DS Edition as I think there is more that could be said about the DS system and some of the titles available there.

Topic of the Day. You know what that means? More self-promotion!  :P For those afraid of the Funhouse forum, perhaps you may be unaware of the new thing I'm trying called Song of the Day. Whether it actually sparks more music conversation on these forums is an unknown at this point but I see it being much easier to post daily in compared to Topic of the Day which can be more challenging at times. That said, perhaps I will relinquish the reins at times for others to post some song choices for the day or maybe others will just join in with the own daily posts. Who can say? The topic is still in its infancy and just waiting for users to start molding it as they see fit.

For today's topic, I thought I'd highlight the NWR Review for Monster Hunter Rise, the big title coming to Nintendo Switch that isn't Balan Wonderworld. I imagine most users already know what side of the fence they are one when it comes to purchasing or passing on the title but for those undecided then maybe this will help in that decision.

Topic of the day, topic of the day.... hmmmm, I don't know. Things are quiet around here again. There's been a lot of hoopala about the Snyder Cut of the Justice League movie and it seems like people are saying its a bit better than it was but not enough to suddenly become some top-tier superhero movie. There's been a bit of talk about it in the big o' DC Movies and TV thread so if you've checked this thing out for then maybe you'll want to add in your two cents about it. Topic of the Day?

Alright. It's been a good break. Let's try and get back in the swing of things again. Here's an easy lay-up! PAC-MAN 99 has arrived and it's got people wakka wakka talking to easily be today's Topic of the Day!

A lot of people thought Balan Wonderworld would be forgotten about in the Monster Hunter frenzy when it was revealed it would release the same day as that game. But leave it to genius Yuji Naka to find a way to get everyone talking about his game and making it a bigger topic than some lame ol' game of hunting monsters. As the NWR Review of Balan Wonderworld makes clear, the game is truly a piece of art as it seems to make everyone who plays it do a lot of deep pondering and reflection on life, games and everything in between. It might even be Topic of the Year but, for now, it will just have to be happy with Topic of the Day!

We're almost a third of the way through April so I should highlight an April Community event sooner than later. ESPN may have 30 for 30 but NWR has 4 on 4 action for its user's to engage. The main idea is to try and complete four games during this fourth month of the year. Bonus points if you can do it across 4 different systems. Check it out and see what others are playing and if you can get in on the action. Topic of the... well, you know!

Game Boy talk? Didn't we already do a bunch of this through the 3DS and Wii U VC topics? Well, everything old is new again and Adrock wants to talk about all Game Boy Games from the OG to Color and Advance beyond just what has been available through the VC. Get your nostalgia fix and recommended game picks in while you can.  It's, it's, the Topic of the Day, Topic, Topic of the Day!

Hey, I got a Topic of the Day though I can’t tell if this is weirdly passive-aggressive. I came out tonight to have a fun time, and I’m honestly feeling so attacked right now.

I admittedly did not participate in any of those threads because I saw “eshop” and “VC”. Chances are, if it wasn’t free, I didn’t download it. I’ll lurk those threads for recommendations though I am mostly finished eBay-ing for now unless I can manage to snag a few games for a decent price.

Today's topic is.... Nintendo's E3 Direct. Shocking stuff. I guess I'll link the NWR Staff streaming event for it but chances are the direct will likely have topics spread all over.

So, it hit me as I was going to bed last night around midnight that I forgot to make a Topic of the Day yesterday. Guess that's what happens when you don't do it for two months. Woo! Anyways, I'll just make today what I was going to select yesterday and that is Metroid Dread. We're talking about it in Talkback and talkin' 'bout it in Nintendo Gaming and talking about it NWR's Discord. Heck, we're probably talking about it in our sleep. It's got the Nintendo loyalists pumped for October. Topic of the Whenever!

Meant to reply to this for some time but was just in a low energy mood for awhile. Nothing passive aggressive or some kind of an attack on ya. Just me trying to put some kind of spin or hype on the topic to get people thinking about it (and maybe posting in it). In this case, I was trying to negate the past varying Game Boy topics by explaining this was a topic on a much broader scope beyond just VC titles to give people a reason to participate in the topic rather than dismiss it because they'd already posted some thoughts on those other Game Boy topics. I applaud your efforts to still keep posting on the forums and hope for more discussion. It's a cause I'm still supporting even if I can't be as active in it as I was for so long.

Today's topic is the other titles in Nintendo's Direct that aren't Metroid Dread. Was there anything else you were looking forward to? Well, there's a thread for your to voice that excitement. The NWR Forums: We've got a topic for everything!
