Last of the major updates. I hope they will more characters like Link. I also wonder if this map maker and the Zelda tiles from the new Zelda could be testing a Zelda maker.

I kinda wonder what would have happened if you we had a Kart Bracket, a Sports Bracket, an RPG bracket, and a misc. Bracket.  Then we would at least learn what people think are the best of the Kart games, the best of the sports games, and the best of the RPG games. 

I am bummed that some of the best Mario sports games are getting voted out early.  I mean I absolutely hate sports games in general, but Mario Tennis 64 and Mario Golf 64 are some of the best absolute sports games ever.

Yeah, Harley Quinn's show is pretty good.  It seems to have a twisted but still accurate take on all the Batman characters.  I kinda take the stranger portrayal of characters as how Harley Quinn sees them.  It is so great to see that they gave Harley Quinn a good ensemble cast which helps balance her madness and tell a good story.  Also, Poison Ivy is easily my favorite version of Poison Ivy.

Strong spinoff franchises:  Mario Golf, Mario Kart, Mario & Luigi Sagas, and new entry Mario Maker.

The interesting thing is, this is about genre preference...more than quality.

Stevey: The jankiness of the animation just makes it better for meme material.  Good job.

All I really want is the show all games to be first and then the most recently played games.

I think New York is highly reliant on public transportation to get around.  If people were infected and didn't know about it on Subways will just infect everyone around them.  I also wonder about the homeless population in New York, the death toll may be higher because there are several hundred people with no insurance or not good insurance in New York?  I honestly don't know how the Affordable Health Care Act benefits everyone.

As for Italy, they are still highly touchy civilization.  Italy and Iran still greet with kisses on the side of the face.  So when it got to them it spread faster.  Iran also has several open markets that is a major form of commerce which helped spread it. 

Also, since this virus attacks the respiratory system, weaker people or anyone that may already have an illness becomes weaker and more suseptible do facing the worse of both illnesses...again really attacking the weak and poor people in countries.

Community seasons are all great, and the replacements are funny because they do a lot to make fun of fans of classic characters, but also honor said fans and characters.  Also the show gets better and better when it gets weirder.

I would advice not reading the news, because the news thrives on negative news and that is bringing our culture and our minds to paranoia and breaking points.  This virus is scary, but it will pass eventually. 

The problem isn't the virus, it is people acting irrationally, selfishly, and frankly stupidly.  The supply chains are over taxed because people are being greedy and are buying too much stuff.  We are losing jobs, because the governments and news made choices that made people fear going outside, interacting with people, and basically having some sort of normal life.  Yes, Social Distancing is important, but there can be ways to social distance that don't cripple the economy.  (South Korea has done it.)  And there are ways to manage the supplies of masks, and equipment through regulation that prevents people from hoarding.  This virus is dangerous, but civilization itself is making it worse, and it is frustrating to watch. 

Manufacturing needs to come back to every country, and lets stop being foolish about buying everything from the cheapest country just because we can.  We can manufacture our own masks well enough.  Countries can invest in providing themselves which will create jobs, create energy solutions, create food solutions.  This is a chance for countries to realize that although the world is an international economy, it is time to value the local national workforce, even if it means a higher cost of living and sacrifice.

It means people need to learn to actually care for the neighbors again, and not live selfishly...not live in a manner that you think as long as I have my health and so do my loved ones it is OK.  This isn't even that hard, South Korea is fine...and I think other countries are handling this better too. 

But for America, we have to learn it isn't us vs. them.  Dems vs. Republicans.  Poor vs Rich.  Ethnicity vs Ethnicity or whatever stupid division you want to break the world into.  And we have to reclaim truth and fight against stupid fake news, opinions, and everything having an agenda. 

This has turned into a rant and I am sorry for that, but it is exhausting and stupid to see the world going this way.

When I think of movie experiences, I have enjoyed a few double features, but I really want to be comfortable then, and have good food there and snacks.  I mean the home experience just has so many more benefits that these days I will only go to the theater for the spectacle movies...the big budget crazy action movies that you want to soak in every detail because too much is going on screen to take it all in.  More serious stories and dramas are better at home, because you can really sit and contemplate the movie. 

So maybe Spring Man will disappear as an assist trophy.  Then I have my fingers crossed Bomberman could be a real character.  I still want him in the game.

My 5 characters I would love to see:

1) Arms Character
2) Bomberman
3) Mike Jones (Star Tropics)
4) Popeye (Look it is a long shot, but man that would be Amazing for the history of it.)
5) Jill (Drill Doser)
6) Tails/Doctor Robotonik. But honestly Doctor Robotonik could just be a boss battle. 

5 seasons and a movie

Hey Thanks BnM.  Good to hear my adopted home is doing better than my real home...actually no it is still depressing.  But seriously, South Korea has been crazy good on this this.

1) They decided to go with the first test made available even before it was fully tested a German test...then when better tests arrived and they developed their own tests then they changed and retested those that did the first test.

2) Every sort of test available.  Drive-thru, Walk-Thru, Testing sites away from hospitals. 

3) Daily reports.  When a new case in your area pops up, you get a text message, telling where that case lives, and a list a places they were for the last week so you can know if you were in the same locations as them.  Then if you were in the same locations you can get tested for free. 

4) A promise from the government to take care of you if you are sick and quarantined this includes foreigners and Koreans.

5) Strict rules now are in place.  If you do not self quarantine when you arrive in the country you can be put in jail or deported.

6) South Korea is taking a very aggressive hands on approach...and it is working, and guess what.  Things are not closed.  People are going out to eat and shop.  People are living normal lives and working. But everyone washes their hands and wears face masks, clothes ones are good enough.  Plus, nobody is panicking and buying all the toilet paper here.

I wonder if it is possible for Nintendo to use the engine for Super Mario Odyssey and then just place new level assets from the old games. Potentially using textures from the new games to make it look all pretty?  Personally I would love for moved like Mario’s sliding down walls to be added to 64 to help gameplay and bring a more consistent play style to the Mario 3D games.

Man, I would love this to be true. 

If they just made Super Mario 64 HD with DS add ons, and Super Mario Sunshine with a Blue Coin Radar I would be all in.  Both games are perfection or near perfection. 

I could see them selling them as double packs.  Super Mario 64 and Sunshine HD double pack.  And then the 2 Galaxy Games HD double pack.  Finally, The Super Mario World (3DS and Wii U) HD double packs.

That would be crazy awesome.

Then if you could hire someone to do an HD remake of Super Mario All-Stars that is as tight as the Wonder Boy remakes then Nintendo would have updated most of the Super Mario games to be future proof and ageless classics.

I am personally really happy about the inclusion of an ARMS combatant.  I know it is a new franchise and people are may want a more popular character, but personally it is a Nintendo franchise, and it is a character that can add a very different fighting style. 

I imagine long reaching attacks that are powerful, but if you miss you are left open.  Special moves could be based on the different gloves, and obviously recover is hookshot like mechanics seems like a fun character to me.  And if the rumors are true that they will add several characters from the franchise via different skins that is even more fun. 

At this point Dixie wouldn’t add much. And we have 3 kongs. I don’t need any more characters from franchises represented. I want franchises that haven’t been represented. Give me Drill Dozer, Custom Robo, Bomberman (personal favorite) Random F-Zero character with skins for other characters. And other back catalog

What's wrong with Alan Horn?

Nintendo Gaming / Re: The official NWR joycon graveyard.
« on: February 25, 2020, 08:43:13 PM »
I have been worried about my joy cons since getting the system.  I think one thing that hasn't been explored in this thread is how people are using their switches.  Are they traveling with them a lot?  Are they using carrying cases?  Are they playing intense analog stick games like Smash Bros?  Are they playing several multiplayer games and require constant removal of placing back of the joy cons?  All of this data affects the life of the controllers, and although they should be stronger and last longer no matter makes we wonder how likely my gaming habits are going to affect the life of my controllers.

I mean it is interesting a new head will change things up.

Although everything is stated that needs to be stated about the DC Marvel thing.  I aways thought, that DC should take a very different approach to their comic universe. 

My idea would be to create creative teams that are in charge of telling stories involving groups of characters. 

Like a Gotham & Bludhaven series that has a strong panel of artists are writers working together that tells a year long story that involves any characters from he Batman Universe.  It would a single comic series that comes out one a week, and they might focus on Batman for a few issues move to side characters or subplots in the world, but really treat it like a novel or real world.  If a character gets hurt sideline them for awhile to heal. 

The same could be done for the Super Family.

The Titans and Young Justice.

Finally a big universe spreading single Justice Comic.

Anyway, having such few comics would help increase sales and then all these teams could have synergy working together.  There would be no need for event comics anymore, because if Batman is in the Justice League comic for a mission he pops out of the Gotham series and let's his team handle things.  Basically really making the world feel alive.

There is no way AT&T would sell off DC Comics, there is too much money to be had there.  However, corporations are pretty stupid, and AT&T could have never seen value in DC Comics and therefore might be willing to shed that part of Time Warner because they never wanted that to begin with.

That said, I do know that in the latest Count Down to Dooms Day comic Dr. Manhattan makes mention of Superman defeating Thor with the help of a Green Monster.  That is obviously a reference to the Marvel Universe.  So this could be just a crossover even that both Marvel and DC are going to work together to develop.  I think it would be fun to have a single comic universe with all these characters, but in the end.  The DC World and Marvel World just don't really mix, and they have several characters that are basically the same character just in different context.  That said, it would be really fun to see the symbol of pure Hope (Superman) in the Marvel universe.  I think even Captain America would be annoyed with his Boy Scott optimism.

It looks like the cape may be all CGI.  Personally, I really like that suit as it is, in that I could go without a cape, since everyone knows they are completely not functional in real life.  The arm thing is strange, but if they have a function then it might make more sense.  I also really like that motorcycle.  It seems like a modified real motorcycle instead of a weapon built from the ground up.

I was on the fence for this game until I saw the trailer.  Then I was really sad they didn't come up with a multiplayer version of this game.  This seems like a great game to have a couple of online competitive/cooperative modes. 

Somebody named their daughter Harley Quinn for real?  Worst parents evar.

Will they be bad guys or will they be rivals?  I mean that article says evil, but really, think about the plot of the Mighty Ducks a ragtag group make it as a hockey team.  They aren't just good but great...of course they would be sucked into the culture of that environment.  If anything this can really talking about competitive sports and the friends it can form and destroy.  Sounds like an interesting movie...
