I think it is great the ... SNES NSO apps are still getting some new games added.

Well, I know Nintendo is still holding back a really big SNES game that still has yet to hit the service.

Yoshi's Cookie.

Oh, and Super Mario RPG but no one seems to remember that old game.

I remember saying "wow" when entering Skytown and Valhalla for the first time.

Mission Accomplished!

I'm here for Kirby and Burger Time Deluxe. Way back when I did my thread on Best of the 3DS Shop: Game Boy VC, Burger Time got a couple recommendations. It's been on my 3DS wishlist for a few years and now I don't need to purchase it before the 3DS eShop closes. What a time to be alive!

Whew! Some tough choices. This could be a wild night yet depending on how things play out. But it should be a fun night too with a lot of great movies in the mix this year.

Nintendo Gaming / Re: What's Next For The N64 Expansion Pack?

Aw phooey, there wasn't one in February either! I guess since they added the GBA section, they figured that was enough for the month. Seeing as they're adding a GBA game in early March, hopefully there will be an N64 release later this month.

I'm wondering if Nintendo realized they were soon going to run out of N64 releases on their end so they added the GB/GBA stuff to give them some games they can keep announcing to the online services rather than have it seem like the well had run dry on the service.

Man, this is terrible! WarioWare, Minish Cap, Super Circuit and Metroid Fusion will be on this app and Nintendo showed F:Zero Maximum Velocity as a game soon to be released on it as well. That's half the Ambassador games for the 3DS now available on the Switch Advance app! All the NES ambassador games have been available for a long time now as well. At this point, I'm really beginning to question why I bought a 3DS at launch....

For the first time, a PS5 game finally takes the number one spot on the Media Crate sales chart.

It's game over for Nintendo now. Switch is doomed just like everyone said.

Nintendo Gaming / Re: What will Nintendo release in 2023?
« on: February 08, 2023, 09:12:48 PM »
All in all, an alright Direct. It really did focus on things we already knew though so there wasn't much surprise on the Nintendo side. All the new stuff really seemed to come from third parties. My quick review. For Nintendo:

Pikmin 4 looks like... more pikmin. Obviously, there's a few new wrinkles to mix things up a bit but overall it just seemed to be the usual knocking down walls and navigating terrain and overwhelming enemies to acquire treasures. I'm not sure it will win over any new fans from those who may have tried a Pikmin game before but not really cared for it but it should be comfort food for those who've enjoyed the previous games.

Xenoblade Expansion - Not sure if the ties to XC1 were spoiler-y for XC3 or only just related to this expansion wave but it got me to remember XC3 exists and become a bit more interested in working towards playing this title.

Splatoon 3 - Was this DLC news? I don't follow Splatoon enough closely to know or remember. I guess it would have made sense to guess this considering Splatoon 2 had DLC but then that got added to the Expansion Pak which made me think that maybe the Splatoon 2 DLC just hadn't been that popular and sold much when it came out so Nintendo lumped into give the Expansion the impression of more value. If it didn't sell well, makes me surprised there was DLC for Splat3.

FE Engage DLC - Then again, it seems like games never end. They just keep getting DLC added to them. By this point, I was longing for the SNES - GC days when games were released and that was it. The whole thing in one package. No trying to continuously add small bits of things to games to keep gamers playing the same title for so long instead of letting them move on to other things.

Cereza - Had no plans to get this so and the trailer didn't do anything to change my mind. To me, the idea of not being able to attack an enemy but only bind them in order to let the CPU character attack them does not sound that fun to me. Like co-op but you're not the main character. You're the one holding the bucket in Crystal Chronicles. (I've never played FF:CC so I'm just talking out my butt on that reference.)

Advance Wars - Still wasn't sure if this would come out with the Russia/Ukraine war still happening and now China/Taiwan tensions increasing. People happily going at war just gives off a weird vibe so I left it off my guesses since it seemed like a coin flip as to its release. That said, I really do love the animation and job done by Wayforward in the clips for it. Almost tempts me to double dip. But having finally completed the story of the first game a couple years ago, I know the story ain't great unless this version completely redoes it and the battles lose appeal after awhile, at least they seem to for me. Last battle was a long slog in the first one. Still, I'd watch an animated series or movie for Advance Wars based on the animation for this game.

Kirby Return to Dreamland Deluxe - It's nice that HAL showed how they are making the game Deluxe by highlighting the additional content being added. But nothing that would make me feel like double dipping on this title as I still have easy access to my Wii original copy. Unless the price is right at low cost like $15 - 20 then I'm probably not going to bother.

Metroid Prime Remastered - Same sentiment for this game. While MP1 is a big favorite of mine in the series, I'm still good with my GC copy. I played it through to completion on both normal and hard mode about 7 years ago and haven't had any hankering to replay it since then. While I suppose the updated graphics may be nice for some, the game looked wrong to me in the trailer because of them. ;D It felt almost a bit more cartoony now.

Mario Kart DLC - Definitely eager to try out the Yoshi's Island course. I guess I just like courses that use the theme of an actual game than an abstract original like Water Park or Mushroom Gorge. Sorry Mop it up. I never realized Birdo was missing as a playable character in the game until this announcement. Just thought she was already included.  :-[

Tears of the Kingdom - Really hoped there would be a bigger showing for this game to finally get the hype meter charging for this game but the bits they showed just left more confused as to how they worked or still in the dark about how this thing may end up playing. I guess I'm just coming to accept that this sequel probably isn't going to wow me like the original BotW. In the end, this is still the most wanted game I'm wanting from Nintendo based on what they've been showing so far. I just wish it didn't feel like it was this way by default.

Well, I'm glad Nintendo announced the Game Boy libraries coming to Switch. I was getting ready to take the chance to buy a bunch of those games off the 3DS and Wii U VC since I just wasn't sure if they were going to made available or not. Surprised that Link's Awakening DX is included with the Remaster of the game on Switch but I guess Nintendo figures it's not going to hurt sales of that game now. Still, might be some third party releases I should scoop up just in case. Never know how much third parties will go along with having their stuff added to these Apps.

Arghhh! At one point, in my list of predictions, I had Professor Layton returns from the dead. But then I thought, no, Layton's daughter was supposed to be the protagonist for a new game and frankly Level-5 seemed like it's been hurting financially and might not have the ability to invest in making a new game for the series so I passed on the idea and took it off my list. Oh, I wish I kept it. Madness Khushrenada would be laughing it up right now. Instead I've got Terranigma. What a dumb choice!

Meanwhile, the Metroid Prime 1 remasters and Baten Kaitos remasters did come true after all. Safe Khushrenada may end up kicking himself over not going with those choices and choosing a new MonolithSoft game reveal and Nintendo IP adaptation in other media as choices instead. I just began to doubt the legitimacy of the MP1 HD rumors after so long. Sort of like the DK game by EAD rumors that have never panned out into anything so far.

Madness Khushrenada (He’s making the predictions that no other “insiders” are making or talking about. He’s out on the edge all alone!!)

1. SNES Remix (a sequel to the NES Remix games) is released.

2. A Star Fox Mobile game is announced.

3. Fortune Street gets a new entry for the Switch.

4. Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is re-released.

5. The Switch successor has a second screen on the controllers

6. Animal Crossing: Style Savvy (a mash-up). You work with the Mabel Sisters in helping create fashion for villagers and become the best boutique in town.

7. More third party talk. A Call of Duty game is revealed for the Switch (or its successor) as Microsoft tries to gain more leverage in acquiring Blizzard/Activision.

8. Even more Square madness. Square brings Terranigma to the Switch.

9. Even more third party talk. Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City get ports to the Switch (or its successor).

10. F-Zero shocks the world with a new game.

11. Everyone else’s predictions go to 10. Not Madness Khushrenada. His picks go to 11. They’re the maddest picks around. That madness also infects Square Enix and they shock the world by announcing Final Fantasy 17 will also be coming to a Nintendo system.

Bold Khushrenada (A little more spicy with a bit more detailed predictions)

1. Game Freak reveals a non-Pokemon IP game. It will release either this year or early next year.

2. Two new Nintendo IP’s are revealed with one released this year.

3. Ring Fit Adventure gets some additional content.

4. Another Game Console’s (i.e. Game Boy, Game Gear, Neo Geo, etc) games are added to the Expansion + subscription.

5. Yoshi’s Woolly World gets a Switch port.

6. A new Donkey Kong game is revealed. It will be scheduled to release in 2023 or 2024.

7. A Mario RPG is revealed. It will be scheduled to release in 2023 or 2024.

8. A Pushmo game is revealed and released.

You know what? It’s getting boring predicting the same Nintendo franchises over and over since we all know is going to continuously cycle through their IP. So screw Nintendo! Let’s talk third party!

9. Square ports over more Dragon Quest games (such as 4, 5, 6) to the Switch and announces Dragon Quest 12.

10. More Third Party talk. The Mass Effect Trilogy gets ported to the Switch. EA needs some cash!

Alright. The moment you've all been waiting for. The man who just can't stop correctly predicting things. I mean, just check out this gem from last year:

So, I guess it’s time to lay down the law once and for all over who’s the best prognosticator. I’ll show you how to be claim victory with Safe predictions … In the end, some form of Khushrenada will be victorious.

I correctly predicted the outcome of that thread even though I didn't seem to get credit for that prediction of winning.  >:(

Hmmm, this thread feels quieter than years past. Perhaps its because this time around people really don’t know what Nintendo might do as the long life of the Switch has made it harder to know whether they will keep riding this train or bring it to an end. Or perhaps it is because everyone was waiting for the master prognosticator, your pal, Big K, to put his cards on the table so that everyone can than copy and crib from them to try and scrounge a few correct predictions for their own gain.

So after posting this I realize that this thread is ostensibly for Khushrenada to post lists of movies.  :-[  Khush, feel free to move this post to another topic.

It's fine. I only said that since I felt I was likely the only one to do the most future posting in this thread and might as well use it like a sort of movie blog of my own or something. Nothing wrong with other users joining the discussion with films they've watched.

For a little bit smaller total of 123 films watched in 2022 compared to last year's total but higher than 2020's 114. Honestly still kind of shocked at learning about 2021's total of 141. Nearly had an average of a new movie every two days. I think that may be a record for me. It's weird because I also spent time in 2021 playing stuff like XCX for a large portion of time and Clubhouse Games. How did I find the time? I guess lockdowns were still keeping me to myself indoors more than I realized.

Imagine if I made a post for each of these in the Rate the Last Movie You Saw Thread. *shudders at the though of all that extra typing* Anyways, if anyone does want feedback or a quick review of a movie listed, make a post and I'll answer you on that.

I thought I did this for 2021 but it seems I did not create another thread for it. Maybe for the best. It's not like this was a hotbed of discussion. So, I've changed the title of this thread. Unlike the Oscars which will get their own thread of discussion each year, I'll just keep bumping this each year to post my movie watching accomplishments.

I just learned about Onion Assault this morning. I saw a trailer of it posted and was curious to see what people meant when they were saying it was like SMB2. Didn't realize it was Horberg's latest or that he had made a new game until it started. It's immediately jumped up high on my wishlist. It's the most excited I've been for a game by Horberg.

I got Gunman Clive 1 and 2 because of the positive word of mouth but it took like a couple years to convince to give them a shot even at their low price. Did enjoy the games although they didn't fully grip me into wanting to play them over and again much. Just never had any enthusiasm for Mechstermination Force. It didn't seem to get as much positive press (or at least get people talking about it like Gunman Clive) and a game that is just a boss rush mode does not sound like a fun time to me. Even with the game hitting the same price level as Gunman Clive in sales, I've just never thought about picking it up and giving it a shot.

But Onion Assault has pretty much sold me on the trailer alone. Best gaming surprise of 2023 so far.

Nintendo Gaming / Re: What's Next For The N64 Expansion Pack?
« on: January 25, 2023, 12:22:40 PM »
I'm already in my own family plan so can't help you there Khushrenada, but I'd be interested in playing these games with your group, if our schedules can match up.

Heh, that's fine. I wasn't looking for someone on the forums to join me. There was someone else I knew in life that would be interested and they joined up. So, that was taken care of some time ago.

I was going to bump this thread to talk about the sudden lack of titles being released for the app despite knowing 6 titles that were supposed to be added to it. And then Goldeneye is suddenly announced as being added this week. The one game a month schedule has suddenly become wonky the last few months. This seems to have happened as soon as I subscribed to it. Not sure what I did but I guess it must be my fault.

Super Mario 64 - I want to go back to my last post when I complained about the design for getting up to the balcony in the Boo House. I should have just played the worlds in order instead of jumping around as much as I did. Later, when playing Cool, Cool Mountain, I get some practice on wall jumps which I clearly needed for that section. I rescind my complaint about the level design. I just needed to brush off my SM64 skillz. All in all, I still like the game a lot and I enjoyed revisiting it after such a long absence. That's another game crossed off the N64 list.

Mario Party - Man, did they make it a long time to unlock everything. Glad they did away with having to buy the minigames so that you could then play them in the mini-game mode. Just been playing through it in single-player. I find I don't mind the single player like I once did. Just been starting a board and playing it for like 7 or 8 turns and then pausing and going off to other games but slowly chipping away at the game. Recently wrapped up a 20 turn round on Mario's Rainbow Castle. Got the happening star by being the only player to land on that type of space once during the whole match. What a brilliant play on my part. Still quite happy these games have come to the app. Can't wait for Mario Party 3 and two of the best characters, Waluigi and Daisy, to finally be playable options.

Yoshi's Story - It occurred to me when playing this that Yoshi's story was pretty much the only Nintendo property done in 2D during the N64 era. I suppose you could consider Super Smash Bros as 2D and Kirby 64 was 2.5D in that it played with the perspective more but Yoshi's Story was about the closest Nintendo came to the games that had been their main bread and butter through the SNES era. It's been a long time since revisiting this game and it is still a mixed bag of good and bad but I'm liking and appreciating it a bit more than my past memories of the game. Just been playing a couple levels at a time and chipping away at it that way also.

Nintendo Gaming / Has anyone played....?
« on: January 24, 2023, 06:24:31 PM »
...Immortals Fenyx Rising?

I see it on sale cheap on the eShop. At the time of release, it just seemed like a hollow attempt to copy BotW and try to cash in on mimicking its style. Like the Carnival Games to Nintendo's Wii Sports. Yet, now I'm at the point where I'd be willing to play something that's similar to BotW since it has been years since I've last played that title. Of course, with Tears of the Kingdom soon to come in a few months, it would seem more prudent to just wait for that. Any comments from other users here about the game?

...Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin?

I've had the first game on my Wish List since around 2019 when it came up in discussions with pokepal148 and Mop it up and both of them giving the 3DS high praise. However, by that point in time, it was pretty hard to find a physical copy of the game and I've still yet to do so or play this. So, now I wonder if I should just forget about that and try this game out instead. It's getting pretty heavily discounted on the eShop. Is it better, worse or equal to the first? What's the word on Wings of Ruin?

...NEO: The World Ends With You?

Again, it is a game where I'd like to get around to playing the first one. In fact, I actually did start it once years ago like 2012 and got through the first chapter / opening. I remember feeling like the dual screen battle screen battle system wasn't quite gelling or clicking with me yet and I wanted to get the geography of locations a bit more firm in my mind but then I ended up setting it aside and never getting back to it. TWEWY was always regarded as a top DS game but this long asked for sequel seems to have come and gone pretty quietly. Anyone have anything to chime in about it? I imagine the battle system would be different for this game compared to the first. Is it better or worse?

As for this thread, I thought I'd try and take a page out of Discord and see if we can't blend some of that energy with these forums. In that sense, much like popping into the General chat and asking if anyone there has played a game or wanting to get some information on a title, users can hop into this thread and post their query. Responses may not be as fast but feel free to post anytime if you see something in this thread and want to comment on it. Much easier to bump threads here than on Discord.  ;)

Ooooo. This seems to have been a popular poll. 8 votes already. These days that's a big vote turnout for the old NWR electoral college.

I voted for 7 months in the poll. There's gotta be some PlayStation games that get in the charts with enough frequency against the aging Switch, right?

That's what I'm thinking. Like, the PS5 software situation sometimes feels pretty sparse / dire like Wii U levels as it still hardly has much exclusive software and it feels like long gaps in between when a game releases for the system. Or maybe it just feels like that because of the Switch putting such a chokehold on the chart. Still, a lot of games get released for both Switch and a PS system so a PS4 or PS5 game will likely chart then even if it drops off after a week or two. As long as some third parties keep staying multiplatform then it will be hard to pull off the 30 for 30. Plus, there's over 2,000,000 PS5 systems in Japan now. When is that going to start translating into some PS5 games having some legs? The 30th position just sold 1,640 copies. That's not a lot of software to be sold to make the chart. Which makes it all the worse for PS5 with it being unable to clear that low bar and have Nintendo take all 30 spots.

I've been meaning to check and see how many times Nintendo did pull off the Top 30 year but maybe someone here knows that answer already....?

Oh man! I haven't seen that meme in so long! Thanks for reminding me of that one. Classic!
