  1. Nintendo Labo - coming 4/20

    Project Giant Robot lives! And the joy cons tech is seriously impressive if it's able to read those inputs from just from the cardboard's vibrations. Super creative, but that's where the appeal ends to me.
  2. That's silly. I'm sure this would have been on the cards for them after Forza Horizon was out. I think Microsoft was simply too focused on finding another multiplayer megahit to give Lionhead the benefit of the doubt to work on something single player again. Now, they probably realize they had to answer Sony with something with Scalebound cancelled. I think whatever this next Fable will be is meant to fill that hole.
  3. Not just Sony. Anyone that starts a trend. That's why they bought Mojang and tried to buy Bluehole. At the very least, I have to give it them that a new Fable would walk back some of Phil's recent comments a little. IMO, the last thing they should be doing is chasing the multiplayer cash cows of today. Lawbreakers and Paragon are a great indication that the space is too crowded. I worry that next E3, that's going to be their main focus.
  4. I'm okay with a new developer taking a crack at the franchise. But Lionhead was closed in 2016. Horizon was revealed in 2015. If this article is true, that's an incredible lack of foresight on Microsoft's part - of course Horizon was going to be a big deal. Seems like a stupid, reactionary move to close that studio when they did. I would have wanted to see Lionhead continue to work on something new after Fable Legends. Like Rare got the chance to with Sea of Theaves, or Retro with the DKC Returns games. They just weren't given the chance.
  5. Zelda is big enough as it is. That's also an unemployment type of game. And I wouldn't say X2 is too flawed. It's just not perfect. The positives outweigh the few negatives. So it's worth putting up with them. Biggest problems I have are with the RNG elements and portable resolution issues, though the former is mostly inconsequential once you're far enough and can cheese things.
  6. I have the $$$ to buy a Switch today but

    Yeah, typo
  7. Just got there. I can't think of another game off hand that did a strictly choral track like this. And what's better is that they explain it in the game too.
  8. Rumor - Paragon shutting down in Feb

    I feel like it must be incredibly discouraging as a developer to watch your multiplayer-only game get shelved. At least with a single player stuff, it doesn't become less fun once the party is over. You can sell it for years after the fact too.

    Last big game of 2018 on any platform, which is probably why it got overlooked. You wouldn't need to play the first (or psedeo-spin off) to get into it. It's something special to have a new AAA RPG that can be played portable. (if Zelda already doesn't count) And the music, like the first game, is incredible. Again, I feel like it's very much of a case of it complementing BoTW its own way.

    Has he played Bayo 2 though?

    Mario and Zelda are the biggest entries in each of their franchises. Depending on how interested you are in seeing everything they offer, you can spend double the time in them as any other Mario/Zelda. There's a good 150 hours of game between them. Not counting DLC either. After that, Xenoblade 2 is just as good in most ways. It's story focused in a way Zelda isn't, so the two compliment each other well. I'm constantly getting Skies of Arcadia vibes, if that means anything. Currently half way through 80 hours in... All this is to say you can easily get your money's worth. Especially considering it's portable. If you're not a portable gamer, you'll be tempted to be with how addictive those three games are. I'll probably wait for price cuts on a few others. Mario Rabbids, Splatoon 2, some of the recently announced Wii U ports, etc. There's a ton left out there to play once the big ones are finished. I'm just not done yet. The Switch has the best launch year of any console since the Dreamcast. There's too much to play for it, and more DLC coming too for Mario, Xeno 2, Rabbids, etc. The first half of 2018 could be nothing else but ports and it wouldn't matter. (Kirby and Mario Tennis seem like they could be good in any case)
  12. So we're all in agreement that X2 is something special? I'm not sure yet if I like it better than the first. Feels like it's an extension of that game in spirit, in the best way possible (except for the anime humor). It should have reviewed much better than XCX. Don't know what the critics were thinking.
  13. Switch Online service (what's going on???)

    I would be too. I hope the subscription still stays at $20 and involves reworking online into older games.

    Hopefully they've heard from the masses about Splatoon 2's voice chat implementation being trash.
  15. It might have a better soundtrack than the first game on the whole. Or maybe it's just more of an awesome thing.
