I've got zero interest, which Is weird because love all other Mario games. It just looks too easy and cheesy and not really good/challenging gameplay.
> I want it bad but I have so much too play.
yeah same here, If I wasn't in the middle of a game I'd be more excited to start it Friday. But having too many good games to play is a problem I like!
I'm skipping Paper Mario. I heard the battle system doesn't really offer any progression and feel really pointless. We need a proper Mario RPG again.
I may try it if it's ever cheap, but this is a first party Nintendo game. Not gonna happen. And I'm sure it's also gonna be mind numbingly easy.
Paper Mario on the Wii U dropped in price a few months after release. Switch is a different monster though.
The battle system looks interesting as it's basically a puzzle game, but every Paper Mario I've played has underwhelmed. Same for the Yoshi series. Maybe down the road when it goes on sale.
I copped and bought it from Gothix 46.00 is hard to pass out. Probably the best it will be unless he comes out with more for less later
I loved Paper Mario Color Splash. Don't think Origami King will fare as well if the battle and
lack of progression system is kinda funky, but I'll check it out over the summer after I run thru Ghost of Tshushima.
I don't mind if they try new stuff with Paper Mario it now has been years since it was a straight RPG. I think Mario and Luigi can be the RPG series going forward.
I think the studios who was making those Mario & Luigi games shut down.

Yep, AlphaDream went bankrupt less than a year after their last game got put out (the remake of Bowser's Inside Story)

one in the same. looks like that was their second to last game :\
Man, that series would fit perfectly on the Switch.
Flurry of Nintendo rumors with decent evidence suggests a direct is coming soon. Expect Mario 35th Anniversary news as there is already a new Monopoly and Jenga board games revealed. I'm sure a 3d collection is coming, as is 3d World Dx. Also rumored is an F-Zero game with a blocked Twitter account that looks to be registered to Nintendo of Japan.
Also this disturbing quote from one of the Paper Mario devs:
"Since Paper Mario: Sticker Star, it's no longer possible to modify Mario characters or to create original characters that touch on the Mario universe," Kensuke Tanabe, a developer on the Mario franchise since 1988's Super Mario Bros. 2, told VGC in an interview published yesteday. "That means that if we aren't using Mario characters for bosses, we need to create original characters with designs that don't involve the Mario universe at all, like we've done with Olly and the stationery bosses."https://kotaku.com/nintendo-veteran-explains-some-...
That sounds like terrible direction from Nintendo. Edit
: Better read. Explains Samus helmet.https://www.videogameschronicle.com/features/inter...
"That debut trailer ends with Mario in an origami Samus helmet. What can you tell us about that? Can we expect more cameos in the game?
Nagaya: In addition to the origami theme, in Paper Mario: The Origami King we also have characters and objects themed around papier-m--ché. In creating some of the objects that look like dress-up masks for Mario to wear and disguise himself, we wanted to have more than just the correct mask for players to wear; we also wanted others that players, including Nintendo fans, would enjoy too. What came out of this sentiment was the Space Warrior Mask. Actually, this isn't the only mask! I hope you'll all try playing and seeing them for yourselves!"
Nintendo just announced a mini direct "partner showcase" focusing on previously announced titles. This could be anything, but I'm excited
Edit: 10am est
"the first Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase, a new series focused on titles from our development and publishing partners." It'll be about 10 minutes long and provide updates on a "small group" of previously announced games for the Switch.
Not expecting much, but hoping for a decent surprise or two. Also, BotW2 and Metroid Prime 4 are "previously announced Switch games". lol
I wonder what they are planning for their E3 lineup reveal? August is right around the corner and we don't know anything official about their 1st party holiday releases. I would think they have something for Sept.
What have they "previously announced" that we are awaiting further updates on besides BOTW2 and MP4?
Prime is realistic for this, botw2 isn't (in my opinion). This direct is showcasing 'partners' who are developing games. So unless Nintendo is handing Zelda to another developer, that's out.
I'm really just going for release dates for a ton of stuff: MP4, bravely 2, Gods and monsters, axiom 2, and a few other Indies
Also Bayonetta 3, Persona 5 Scramble, Hollow Knight Silksong, No More Heroes 3, Doom Eternal, SMT V.
Oh dang, I forgot silksong!
I remembered the others, but I personally don't expect to play them
Well, that was disappointing lol
Read the 4 messages before yours... That's what I was hoping for lol.
> Well, that was disappointing lol
It sure was. I was hoping for smt 5 news, but 2021 just seems so far away
> Read the 4 messages before yours... That's what I was hoping for lol.
I'm surprised they didn't give a release date for BD II. Maybe it's a holiday release. Something like Axiom Verge 2 they might announce the release date on the same day it happens.
Btw, they mentioned there would be more of these showcases throughout the year.
Yeah, I'm hoping that if there going to do these super mini directs, maybe they'll be monthly?

When I heard it would be 10 minutes, I thought rapid fire showcase of games and release dates? I didn't expect a direct that is less than 9 minutes with 2 minutes dedicated to Necromancer DLC, another couple on WWE, but at least I got SMTV right even though I didn't know what the hell it was until they showed the title screen... lol
I went in prepared to be disappointed, but that was almost comical.

I kind of expected the "rapid fire" approach myself. They showed a few more games in the Japanese one, including Atelier Ryze 2, though nothing I was really interested in.
Smt 3 will be a day one buy for me. Never played it.

I hope you played the first Shadow Hearts before Covenant... Koudelka isn't as necessary to play though.
Nintendo partnered with Monolith Soft for BotW 2, they're the ones handling the open world aspect of the game, same with BotW 1.
Tin foil hat here. With as short and disjointed as this mini direct was, and with how widespread the leak was and many people reporting the same games, the odd timing... What if this was a stunt by Nintendo to reveal a leaker? image

Wouldn't be surprised. Its something similar MS did during one of their E3s a few years back. They put out some info internally that wasn't true to see what made it out to the media and the people who had access to that info were black balled.
I feel like at somebody point Nintendo is going to have to announce games that are coming during this year. If they don't do that before the end of the month or August will be surprising.
Nintendo usually has a game in the chamber for August, Sept, Nov, and Dec. It is strange we don't know any of those games this year.
Maybe they're sandbagging with the lack of competitor sales and the Switch selling well. That said I still fully expect multiple Mario releases this year plus at least 1 more big 1st party release. They need something big to keep the momentum going with new console releases. Maybe they're just gearing up for 2021... who knows.
Nintendo has always been tight-lipped until the game is close to being released. They have no interest in getting people excited about things early for some reason.
We usually know most of the back of the year lineup at E3 but no E3 sooo.
I think I will give Rogue Company a try. It actually looks fun.
> Glad to see the rest of y'all are finally getting fed-up with Nintendo taking so

They're just giving us more time to clear out our backlogs before they give us BotW2.

I was just thinking about Nintendo's perspective. Those are their two games for the summer, and they couldn't announce anything at E3 for obvious reasons. So it doesn't matter if they haven't announced anything yet, because they are doing things differently for now. I'm not excited about the Mario ports either, but those are just rumors anyway.
Any folks beating the higher two levels of chess in Clubhouse 51? I'm a casual chess player, like most chess games the AI ramps quickly.

Here's what you do. Open up a chess sim with Grand Master AI. Now start up Clubhouse 51 chess on Medium. To find what moves you should make to win the game, play against the GM AI with the moves the CPU makes in Clubhouse 51, then do the GM's next move as your turn in Clubhouse 51, and when you get your ass beat in the GM match, you'll win the Clubhouse 51 match.
Repeat for Hard.(I don't do this, it just seems like an easy gold medal opportunity)
Chess sim with Grand Master AI? Is this an app or website?
Hard difficulty isn't too bad, it's Amazing that's getting me. They are consistently one step ahead of me.
I didn't know those things existed, but I'm not surprised. 2 games and they beat both amazing and impossible. I followed the amazing game well enough, but the impossible game I was questioning some of the logic until about 5 moves to end game. I had lost many of the back row at the cost of their queen, but my queen and a rook beat their 2 rooks, bishop, knight and extra pawns. Such a game of masters...
That plaque actually reads "land / player" based on the raw graphics files. But it's hard to tell in game because it's been so compressed that people read it as something else.
But it hints at a possible multiplayer mode planned at some point so it's still pretty dern interesting imo.
My understanding was that you can play content on any system that has the primary Nintendo account on it. And I thought you had to play as the system user that is tied to that account. I could be totally wrong but that's what we've been doing. So if your user/account bought the DLC then your son might need to play the game as your system user. Don't quote me on that though.

That's dumb and shouldn't be... but it's Nintendo. I'd contact them and complain.
They just want you to buy it twice.

Yeah, it's kind of a pain. Thankfully there's not any DLC I'm wanting to play right now, or my daughter for that matter. I don't know what good complaining would do, this seems to just be how they do it.
Stardew valley is getting a physical release November 6 through Fangamer. Anyone ever get a game through them? Are they like LRG or will the game be available to purchase elsewhere?
