Fuzunga does what Nintendon’t
See, what did I tell you? The week started off with the cancellation of Scalebound and ended with Switch pre-order madness. 2017 has officially begun!
Also, my old MacBook decided to stop charging in the middle of the week which means I have to work from this Chromebook now. Needless to say, this recap is going to be a little bit… different because of it. More quickposts, less threaded conversations, and one weird header. Let’s do this!
An appropriate response to the surreal moment during the Switch presentation that I used in the header.
The comments section is full of gems like this and I suggest you check it out.
This will definitely be the greatest tragedy of 2017.
Nintendo has never really understood the concept of a sale. To be fair, though, even Amazon struggles with this from time to time.
Honestly, I’m okay with this too. I already have my Kickstarter copy for Wii U and the Vita version on cartridge, but now I’ll be able to play the same version anywhere!
Don’t plunder too hard now, you thick thieves!
I can’t believe Microsoft cancelled the sequel to one of the most memorable and universally-beloved platformers of all time!
Did you know Mario Kart was created because of Miyamoto’s childhood hobby of rubber band racing?
That’s a pretty big insult to the One True Game of the Year!
What’s even the point then? Horizon is going to be a huge flop because of this!
I never thought of it that way, but maybe China is on to something.
If anything, I think it’d be Retro City Rampage ports. I own the game on a damn floppy disk!
My uncle that works at Nintendo has confirmed this to me.
This week’s level-headed conversation:
Nintendo gets a lot of unnecessary hate, and this is one of those times. Is the amount of included storage low? Yes, comically. Could it have included more without increasing the price? Almost certainly. Did I see a 64 gig micro SD card on sale for $15 last week? Yes I did.
Did you know Mario could do this?
Don’t try it at home.
The Commenter of the Week this time around is NeoSmeers for what I consider an underrated gem. The new King of Fighters XIV updates makes the game look better, but also shinier.
I imagine boob sweat effects will be the next big thing in Japanese game development.
I’d like to give a shout-out to Fotor for the basic editing tools I used this week. If you’re listening, people in charge of Fotor, please consider adding pixelated fonts to your catalog! Hopefully my computer will be operational next week. See you then!
