    It's almost like your personal opinions mean jack shit in the grand scheme of things huh?

    Anyways why do you always pop up once a month with some weak ass bait message in this thread? Last month it was "Why has Nintendo did a 180 on all their policies?!"

    So real talk: where the hell is Crystal Chronicles?

    I was talking about E3 predictions with friends and we got to how Square Enix has the 7 remake and avengers game and the rest is a mystery. Someone said 'well maybe CC will get a release date?' and i had to double check that a: it didn't come out when all the other HD ports did and b: we are halfway through 2019 and it still only lists its release date as 2019.
    I imagine theres plenty who don't care but thats honestly in my top ten games of all time and the online had me excited for another monster hunter style 'pick up and have fun with 3 friends' gameplay in the game i adore, but can't exactly easily get 3 friends with 3 gbas and link cables around at the drop of a hat like its 2003 anymore.

    Only reason i could guess is because its the only game in the lot of FF ports that uses online and the Switch online isn't known by a sterling reputation so maybe thats why its still held back?

    I really hope we get some Metroid Prime 4 info at E3, even if it's just a brief clip / concept art. I can't imagine they scrapped **everything** from the previous iteration, so they should have something to show even if it's not gameplay.

    Anyone here have a good guide on how to install CFW on a Nintendo Switch? I want to install RetroArch on it.

    CC isn't only on Switch so it's online has nothing to do with it when the PS4 version isn't out yet either nor does it have a date.

    X/XII where already remastered they just ported them over to the Switch, not much work there when they already had the PS4 versions to port over.

    CC remastered on the other hand had not yet been remastered and they are building online play for a game that didn't originally have it. Game was announced less then a year ago back in sep, it's not shocking that it hasn't got a release date yet. It will either be a late 2019 release or might even get pushed into 2020 all things considered.

    No and doing so is against the rules here.

    Predictions for the pokemon direct?

    My pessimism is high - I assume we'll get the typical rodent / bug / bird starter mons, maybe one that GF thinks will be the new Lucario / Zoroark, box legendaries, and the new gimmick (galar forms hopefully).

    New professor / evil team / rival(s) and that's about it. Also release date is probably likely (I'm betting Nov. 15th)

    Been seeing some Youtubers saying that it's just as sparse and disappointing as 2018. Despite the fact we have Mario Maker 2, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Animal Crossing, Luigi's Mansion 3, Link's Awakening remake, Pokemon Sword and Shield (Just to name a handful) coming out in the latter half of the year.

    And yes. I know we shouldn't take Youtubers opinions as gospel. But it's hard to ignore the nerdrage from them and the brainless zealots that agree with everything they say.
    Astral Chain. It's gonna be a sleeper hit. It's gonna be big though.



    A cross between Xenoblade, Cyberpunk, and Technopunk (?) RPG. Due at the end of August. Devs are very silent on reveals.

    Don't think there will be time for it, or worth it for what they could possibly show. Luigis Mansion 3 and Animal Crossing are still releasing this year and we haven't seen anything from them yet. Those are gonna take up massive chunks of their e3 direct. On top of that Astral Chain and Link's Awakening need blowouts because they haven't had anything but small trailers. There is most of your direct right there. Throw in a Smash character announcement, announcement of a future Splatoon 2 patch, a small Pokemon reminder and some 3rd party fluff and that's basically a full show.

    Switch drought finally over this month.

    June- Mario Maker
    July- Fire Emblem
    August- Astral Chain

    After that I think it's gonna shake out like...

    Sep- Link's Awakening
    October- Luigi's Mansion 3
    November- Pokemon
    December- Animal Crossing.

    Even if it doesn't shake out exactly like that the system is basically getting 1 marque game a month either way. Nintendo should try to spread out their releases more in the future cause the first half of this year was ass(and last year same time period wasn't much better either).

    Indeed, Astral Chain, and Animal Crossing.

    As for Luigi's Mansion 3, it's really just a rehash of the 3DS version, although a good one.

    Pokemon - Not impressed by the trailer, looks like another "Poklemon" game with a forced camera angle, like XD, outside of buildings, yet sort of 3D, joy. Forced. (ie you can't look around.)

    The others mentioned are cool, but I'm not interested so much, honestly. But I believe Mario Maker 2 will be hot for some.

    Links Awakening - can we have more broken weapons ??

    Because game was designed with DS touch screen in mind and why spend money making a good port when you can save money and make a shit one? /s

    Sad truth is Square didn't care because they knew people would buy it anyways and it costed them almost nothing. It probably plays okay in touch screen tablet mode but fuck that joy con pointer shit lmao.

    It doesn't (IMO).

    That's how I have been playing it and OMG its just a massive pain in the ass to move the character and use the ability's you get. Half the time I want to move and he does the attack or vise versa.

    I figured well I play portable so the controls may be passable, But fuck no its just a dick. On top of that trying to play it portable means my hands cover up the screen a bit so that's less Gameplay I see.

    I'm just going to take the $10 hit and trade it in tomorrow, Like seriously fuck this games controls.

    Used would have cost me more, Only cost me like $17 out of pocket. The rest was a $5 off coupon and store credit/discount.
    Plus there was no used copy near me anyway.

    I figured I may be able to power thought the touch controls but nope fuck it.

    Random Thought: I think we are going to get a DS2 (and maybe DS3) Announcement for Switch at Nintendo's Direct.

    My biggest hope with Pokemon is faster menus / animations and a consistent +30 framerate. LGPE was pretty decent, but I booted up ORAS yesterday and it took like 10-12 seconds to even load into a wild pokemon battle and like 30-35 to actually kill it in 2 turns. Not to mention the animations just get longer and longer each gen, more and more to manage yet no inventory sorting, and the FPS tanks HARD in Sun / Moon.

    I can deal with the on rails story / handholding (even if I hate those too) since they are temporary.

    I dunno, I never thought I'd say this, but if Sword and Shield doesn't add some difficulty modes to the game, then it might be my last Pokemon game. LGPE added Co-op so my girlfriend wanted to play with me but it made it so mind numbingly easy. I just couldn't finish it. Sun and Moon was also really easy and kinda boring. I think Pokemon needs to start catering to their original fans who are in their 20s now. Make a baseline difficulty mode and then another harder difficulty mode. They did it for Pokemon Black, so I don't see why they can't do it again.
