All right time to lower the anchors!

Total: -5

So far this has been a rousing success.


LOL. I had a suddenly had a vision of 30 or 40 people joining up for this event and then we all bought a bunch of games. We won't just torpedo the score past 0. We'll sink it so hard and fast to leave a crater on the ocean floor!!

I am going to keep playing and finish the other 15 but I wanted to get something else on the board to balance my purchase.

But if buying a game is -3 points and finishing a game is only 1 point then how is it balanced? You're still at -2. Pokepal is really out to punish you all if you buy a game!
It's balanced around not buying games, not so much completing them.

All right time to lower the anchors!



Downloaded two games:
-3 points: Capcom Arcade Stadium: 1943 Battle for Midway
-3 points: Capcom Arcade Stadium: Ghosts 'n Goblins
Beat one of them:
+1 point: 1943 Battle for Midway
Total: -5

1943 Midway is not a very good game, just kinda loops 2 types of levels 16 times in a row with more of the same five enemy types everytime. Powerups aren't persistent either.
Also tried Ghosts 'n Goblins but lo & behold I'm again bad at this. Who would've thought after trying and being bad at the NES, and SNES versions?
Also don't love the whole Capcom Arcade Stadium wrapper. Everything seems to trigger a 3-8 page tutorial, and it's annoying the menu options change when you're playing a game or selecting one. The NSO NES/SNES apps are way less fancy, but also a lot easier to grasp at a glance.
So far this has been a rousing success.

Technically each player starts at 6 points so you're still at +1.

I did the 3DS launch so I feel like I have the whole console launch game covered.

I'm working through Xenoblade 2 myself. It'll be a massive timesink but I hope to work through it soon.

I downloaded the f2p multiplayer shooter Valorant for a multiplayer night that a streamer I follow did so once Monster Hunter Rise's preload goes through I'll be breaking even as well.

I've been told I'm not allowed to talk about Advance Wars anymore because dumbass 2012 me derailed an Advance Wars thread in an absolutely hilarious way because I guess I thought that there weren't enough weather effects in Advance Wars.

Seems fine to me. I'm curious what the issue you're seeing here is?

It's up to you. I did this without any prior notice so people preordering stuff ahead of time isn't a concern.

Maybe they finally assimilated eachother. Broodwars has seemed a bit more... Ian Sane lately.

My Nintendo Predictions are as follows:
- Nintendo will piss off the Smash fanbase at least seven times.
- Nintendo will piss off the Pokemon Fanbase at least five times.
- Nintendo will piss off the fire emblem fanbase somehow
- The Metroid fanbase will get pissed off with little to no action on Nintendo's part.
- Game Freak will piss off the Pokemon fanbase.
- TPCi will piss off the Pokemon fanbase
- Junichi Masuda will piss off the Pokemon fanbase
- Nintendo will piss off the Star Fox fanbase.
Well I got a pissed off Smash fanbase, Nintendo pissed off a bunch of Pokemon fans by not having any Pokemon news at the Nintendo Direct even though Pokemon tends to do it's own PR, and I don't even have to check to see how the Metroid fanbase is feeling after the direct.

Call me Nostradamus!

The new Smash character (if one is announced) will be a Monster Hunter character to tie in with Monster Hunter Rise.

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.

My prediction is that unless they have 3 more characters ready to go, This is when they'll delay the end of the second fighter's pass.

We're also going to see the beginning of the year 2 content plans for Animal Crossing. Hopefully now that they have all the holiday stuff rolled out we'll see more content added to the base game like villager interactions or gyroids.

It's not too late. You can still change it.

Speaking of: Nintendo will have a direct on the 17th of February.

Amazing Mirror is an excellent game that's well worth checking out. It was actually a retroactive game at one point as well on RFN.

I don't think money's a factor, it's just a matter of our webmaster taking the time to do it, and I don't know exactly how much effort that requires.
Have you tried asking for his/her manager?

I blasted through the main campaign of Bowser's Fury but I'll likely be working towards getting 100% there. I honestly like the structure of that mode more than Odyssey/64 or the 3D Land/World stuff and I really hope we get more of it.

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

I mean it's not like games weren't already becoming bloated in terms of file size.

Much like "Infrastructure Week", "ThePerm Week" is a state of mind. It is always "ThePerm Week" as long as we believe.

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.

I wonder if I can make 100 friends...

Dreamland 3 is nowhere near as action heavy as Super Star though (and Gooey is just a better helper character.)

TBF for a second here, Super Star actually gives you very little health which is a pain. I believe the remake actually gives you a bit more health and also redid the physics to be a bit more intuitive.

24
Clearly that was just me doing my duty as a helper and protecting you. It's not my help you needed so much protection.

25
If you look closely I was trying to lead kirby to safety. It's not my fault that I can't protect kirby from himself.

Compelling evidence
