    Is this just a Nintendo thing?  Or is it available to buy/play anywhere online?
    Nintendo Switch only. What better time to get one?!

    But there is a mobile game called Animal Crossing Pocket Camp. Never played it, though.
  • What are you playing?

    After a week of being holed up with more weeks to come, I'm trying to keep everyone in the house from going stir crazy.  So new video games I think would help.  I'll probably download Super Smash Bros for the Switch.  $60 is a bit of a hit but I'd rather get it digitally than try to find it used in a store right now.  

    Also PS Plus this month has the HD remake of Shadow of the Colossus.  I got fairly deep in this game before Life tugged me away from it.  So I'd like to revisit that plus with my 2 boys I think it would totally blow their minds.  And the little one can just have fun galloping around on a horse.  There is a free Sonic game this month on PS Plus also.

    Anyways I raise my controller and salute you all. Let's tough this out.   

    edit: wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow. ok hell yes.

    Shadow of the Colossus is one of my top 3 games of all time, and this newer remake is definitely the best version to play. The gameplay, atmosphere, and music all mesh together perfectly, and how can you not love a game that's all boss-fights?

    The main drawback of the game is that the controls are obtuse, but that's only an issue at the beginning of the game.

    I played on PS4. I went with the Standard layout, was anti-Joja Mart (obvi.), and married Leah. I liked to make diamonds and honey to get to 10 million gold.

  • Potential inside information from the fraught Star Wars Episode 9 film making (Movie **SPOILERS**)

    Rant incoming:
    The “ending that will blow your mind” was a part of this. Older actors were included like Hayden, Ewan and Samuel and anyone who wasn’t animated. The force ghosts weren’t meant to be voices because they shot that footage on camera. The actors were in costumes. Rey was supposed to be surrounded by the force ghosts to serve as sort of a barrier between her and the Sith surrounding them. My source thinks but can’t 100% confirm that this is because of China.

    As a person familiar with Chinese culture, this seems extremely likely. Most Chinese people are very superstitious. A lot of Chinese people legit believe in ghosts and get creeped out by them. World of Warcraft removed skulls in its Chinese version because the Chinese get creeped out by skulls as well, so there's precedent for this.

    I'm fucking pissed about this because Rey surrounded by force ghosts of Jedi masters would have been 1,000,000% better than the voice bullshit we got in the final cut. Fuck, I hate Ep. IX. I've been happily rewatching the prequels, which I used to dislike, because at least there was a coherent story being presented in those films, and, as goofy as they are, they at least feel like Star Wars.

    Please, for the love of god, get Kathleen Kennedy out of there and replace her with some who knows how to grease the business palms as well as making quality content (Favreau/Filoni tag team?!).
  • Star Wars Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker *SPOILER DISCUSSION*

    Welp, at least Chewie got his medal.

    All it took was for Luke, Han, and Leia to die.
