#16525269 E³ 2018 Predictions/Wishes

Posted by HAL_9000 on 01 June 2018 - 06:37 AM

It's not too bad, you just gotta pretend that every planet is extremely foggy all the time:

(To be fair, this level is probably the worst example of the fog in the game, but that's where I happened to be in-game :-] )

Posted by HAL_9000 on 30 May 2018 - 09:23 AM

HAL'S TAKE:
Plausible Occurrences:

EA being stupid and releasing more hastily made games. This is pretty much a given.

 

• Ubisoft being stupid and releasing more hastily made games. This is pretty much a given.

 

• Microsoft being stupid and racing Sony to make the newest hastily made console rehash. THE MOST POWERFUL CONSOLE, EVER.

 

• Sony being stupid and racing Microsoft to make the newest hastily made rehash. They'll probably do some VR stuff, too.

 

 

• Nintendo being Nintendo and releasing more odd games and spin-offs that most people don't find nearly as interesting as anything the fans would want. This is pretty much a given, considering they seem to ignore all the money they could make with releasing a new F-Zero, Metroid (that isn't a spin-off or remake of an old game), etc.

 

• Smash Bros. Hype. This is pretty much a given.

 

• More people looking awkward and hilarious while playing goofy VR games. This is pretty much a given.

 

• Video Game journalists and advertisers being completely out of touch with the people they try to inform. The amount of fake reactions to new stuff and bold exaggerations made by people who are obviously paid to promote things is really annoying.

Wild and hopeless dreams:
Anything that would be awesome, like an F-Zero entry and a good Paper Mario game.

•Anything that would be neat, like a new entry into the Wars series, a new Wave Race, or Halo games being ported to PC.

•Some kind of new handheld that isn't a re-hash of the 3ds.

There's only one person who's qualified to make E3 predictions, and that's The Man. After 10 years of raising a small human, I'm imminently qualified to tell other people what to do, how to do it, and when I expect it done, so sit down and prepare to know exactly what's going to happen in a couple of weeks.

 

Torgo's Take

 

Plausible Hopes

  • Wii Music 2 X Labo: The original "band members" of the 2008 introduction to Wii Music will come back together for a smash encore presentation, showing off a fully-formed cardboard ensemble that's ready to rock your world. Cardboard drums? Check. Cardboard guitar? Check. Cardboard trumpet? Check. Cardboard Xylophone? Check. And now, also a cardboard Theramin, for otherworldly compositions. 8 Joy-Con will be required to play the game, so start saving now. Also, plan to spend at least 12 hours building your instruments before inviting friends over to jam (unless your friends are so cool that they want to help build it). The xylophone itself takes 4 hours because of all the bars, each of which needs a sticker placed in the right spot so the Joy-Con can see when it's struck.
  • F-Zero RPG: Come enjoy the side of Captain Falcon that we never see, in this new RPG that revolves around the Captain's bounty hunting job. Track enemies on foot, interact with single-phrase NPCs to track them down, and try to build up enough bounty to get a new door put on the Blue Falcon so that you can drive it again. No racing in this game, the end rewards is rebuilding the Blue Falcon so that you can watch a cut scene of it driving away. Collect Battle Sticker GX items throughout the game to use in your enemy encounters and fill up your museum. Get 100% of them to unlock a remake of the Nintendo Land F-Zero racing game to play on your Switch!
  • Nintendo Land 2: Speaking of Nintendo Land, Nintendo will send each viewer a package of balloons and confetti to drop on their heads at the wrong time, and then will show the exciting new Nintendo Land installment. Featured attractions will be Clu-Clu's Pole Dancing Workout, where the player has to see how much money they can get stuffed into their character as it swings around on a pole-dancign pole; Crazy Ooccoo's Night Terror, a jump-scare game where you try and help Slippy Toad get out of a maze by using remote video cameras, all while avoiding terrifying Ooccoo Breast Attacks; and Urban Champion Cleanup, an exciting side-scroller where you're tasked with cleaning up garbage in your urban landscape while moving through neverending waves of littering enemies.
  • Switch Vitality Sensor: A new mandatory peripheral, the Switch Vitality Sensor will use advanced Quality of Life technology to detect if you're having thoughts of doing any hacking on your Switch. In the event that the Sensor detects that you're having hacking thoughts, Mr. Resetti will appear on your screen and berate you for 5 minutes. Removing the Sensor at any time will delete your current save data.

Hope in one hand, urine in the other ...

  • Atari 2600 Pretendo Console: With the removal of the Virtual Console from Nintendo's vocabulary, they'll introduce the Pretendo Console! Functionally identical to the Virtual Console, this new service will be launched with an extensive catalog of Atari 2600 games, with new ones coming out bi-monthly. The first (and only) cartridge available will be Combat, which as we all know is actually 27 games in one! These games are only playable with the single Joy-Con used in sideways-mode, and all 4 buttons will emulate the single Atari 2600 controller's button.
  • Olimar's Cooking Challenge: Olimar has crashed on another planet on his way home from his latest mission! Lucky for him, this planet is once again populated by tiny, helpful Pikmin! The twist in this installment is that Olimar has no food, and the similarities between Pikmin and carrots is too much for him. You guide Olimar around the planet as he tries to round up Pikmin, then get them back into his kitchen, where he has to prepare them for dinner. Learn new recipes, collect new kitchen utensils, and make friends with Bulborbs and other indigenous customers as you sell your extra prepared food in exchange for Sparklium to power your ship.
  • Sonic and Knuckles DDR: Sonic and Knuckles are on a quest for Chaos Emeralds, and need to use their dancing skills to defeat Dr. Eggman! By using the included DDR pad (which uses GameCube connectors, thus requiring the Wii U GameCube adapter), help Sonic and Knuckles cha-cha their way to victory through more than 20 exciting dancing levels! All levels will use the same music that's found int he Knuckles search stages in Sonic Adventure 2.

STFU, this poo-poo is NOT going to be there.

  • Metroid Prime Federation Force 2: While it would be an obvious stopgap while rabid fans wait for Metroid Prime 4 to show up, Fed Force 2 won't make a showing at this year's E3. Expect it to show up on 3DS alongside Metroid Prime 4, with exciting cross-compatibility features such as letting you play in a Fed Force mech suit if you beat Fed Force 2 and then link it to your Switch.
  • Jack Bros. Switch: Everyone wants to see a triumphant return from this classic Virtual Boy game.  While the outcry for this game has been almost deafening, with hard-code SMT fans wanting to see a return to top-down black-and-red gameplay, this game's not going to be seen this year. Rumors state that Nintendo is still working on the required VR interface for the Switch, complete with tripod attachment for tabletop use.

Wild and hopeless dreams.

  • Pikmin 4
  • Mario Kart 9
  • Paper Mario (done right)
  • ARMS 2

 

 

Hilarious post, Torgo.

 

(Also, Jack Bros. 2 XD)




#16524301 So... What are you playing? (general discussion)

Posted by HAL_9000 on 23 September 2016 - 07:55 PM

I've been playing some teenage mutant ninja turtles IV: turtles in time.
If there's one thing to take away from this game, it's Leatherhead's hilarious animations.

I played some 2020 super baseball for the neogeo on 2-player mode, and bomberman Generation for the Gamecube. Both are pretty good, but I never really seem to have enough time to finish a full game on super baseball.

I can see if I can do anything. I should have more time to join on this Thursday, given I finish my work before that night.

(Yes, I'm still alive. Also, I'm typing from a computer now--hence the font change.)

I've got some new work to do during the week now, so I will have to check if I can do anything for the tourney this week. I'm gonna make a big effort to at least show up this week, especially considering how I haven't attended any races in a while.

I'll see if I can drop by for a few races, depending on how late my prior obligation goes.

I should be able to make it for a bit this week. I'm gonna probably race with either my samus or fox amiibo outfit, so I might make a special mii for the tourney.

Thanks everybody for playing at the tourney (and for the song).

This is shaping up to be a real fun tourney! Hopefully the subs can sink those battleships.

I might be able to make it. If not, the ghost of the white shy guy will still haunt you during the tourney.
