Saw Your Name for the first time yesterday. Absolutely stunning movie. Also one of the best body-swap stories I've ever experienced, which is saying something as I normally HATE body swap stories.

Seriously? That's surprising considering all the hype I saw for it before it came out.

Yeah. Every review I've read said it was some form of shit, and my gut reaction is that since it has Batman in it, it probably is.

 

If my neighbor buys it--which is possible since he likes Batman and cartoons--I'll borrow it and give it a look.

So i picked up that Batman Ninja movie while i was out grocery shopping today, and man that movie is stupidly awesome. It starts off feeling like they're trying to be historically accurate to feudal Japan, but that very quickly gets tossed out the window when they start tossing in all the anime cliches. It all culminates in the most over-the-top Japanese thing you can possible imagine: [spoilers]a giant Batman fighting against a Megazord-style robot[spoilers]! Hell, even the acting, while performed by a lot of talented industry veterans, sounded a lot like they were deliberately trying to parody a lot of cheesy 90s anime dubs with things like over-the-top grandiose and fast talking exposition. Overall, this movie was just awesome, and if you love that kind of insane over-the-top action anime, i'd definitely recommend it.

You are the first person I've come across to say anything good about it.

I just saw A Wrinkle in Time. I liked it. It wasn't without its flaws. The first part felt a bit too much like a Disney Channel movie, for example, but once they went off to space, it started getting good. Probably my biggest gripe was that this one scene from the book that left a pretty large impression on me as a kid was cut out from the movie version. When i read the book, i was in like 5th grade, but i still have my old copy, and as soon as i got home, i grabbed it off my shelf and thumbed through it to that one chapter. It was called Aunt Beast, and even skimming through it now, it is still is filled with such amazing imagery and feelings, and it is so disappointing that it wasn't in the movie. Other then that, though, the rest of the movie, particularly the third act, did a good job hitting a lot of the emotional moments that i remember from when i was a kid.

Wait, they fucking cut the Aunt Beast scene? Lame!

 

Never did get around to seeing the movie, but I'll snag it when ti's on Netflix.

FUCK, STOP. :(
Time good by way too damn fast. :(


Would touchscreen for Switch be a super easy feature to implement because it's basically mouse inputs, or is that more complicated than I realize? Anyway, it's good to hear that you can play it with so many other input methods. I thought it would be touchscreen or GTFO cuz I thought it was only playable with a mouse, which made me fear a Switch port wouldn't work in docked mode, but now I see that won't be a problem.

Touch screen input shouldn't be too hard unless Nintendo has it set up in some odd way. We've actually gotten it to work on a WIndows Surface. It takes some minor adjustments, but it's very doable.

 

And yeah. The game plays pretty well without a mouse. In some ways, it's faster, though it can be harder to keep track of what's going on. Bit of a give/take there, and something we'd work on really fixing before it went out.
