    When you hit 200cc you'll prefer more acceleration and handling over top speed.

    Yeah I had to switch up my kart choice in 200cc to cut back on the top speed and I'm doing better in it.

    I also brought RE5 twice. I have it on PS3 and PC. I will get the PS4 port eventually.

    I struggled with my fave character in vanilla MK8 (I used Toad) but him and lightweights shine in 200cc.

    I think 200 does, not sure about mirror though I can't remember ever getting any.

    Donkey Kong all day long. The lighter weights are good for new players as you can get your acceleration up. The super heavy dudes are great for time trials because you don't have others to contend with and you want pure top speed. The DK class has great top speed and it just barely has enough acceleration.

    In MKDS you may have a point. Snake or loose. But snaking gave you something to do so I was way happy it was in. But I have a feeling your snaking and my snaking are two different things. In MKDS you could snake, and get a drift in a straight line. Is that also what you were referring to.
    I do feel in MK8 there are places this technique still works. So track knowledge comes in there, and at least there is a little more for the meta development.

    But fire hopping is a different thing entirely. A mini turbo last a certain amount of time. The time isn't calculated off the race clock, or even the game state. It is calculated by the distance your wheels travel on the ground. So when you jump you are pausing the counter until your wheels touch the ground. Then jumping again pausing the counter. The going faster in the air thing is only active when your glider is out.

    I enjoy the 200cc mode. But you can be sure of the fact that the minute more people realize you can clip through walls at certain heights on the big ass jumps, they will all start doing it. Because people are all ready find short cuts through solid structures. That is what the meta of the games will become. And instead of people moaning about it they should adopt it and race the same way. I personally still prefer top speed in 200cc to acceleration. Acceleration is only good when you crash or get tagged. Once you are going you don't tend to crash a lot. And you can use braking as more of a way to alter your drift angles as apposed to slowing down for the corners.

    I must say that I really don't like that you can change your kart set up between races though. The please don't pick Dolphin Shoals please don't pick Dolphin Shoals moment is now gone. I enjoyed not knowing what was coming and dealing it when it popped up. Kind of leveled things about a bit between people picking different karts and characters. You couldn't just always pick the perfect combo.

    I'm totally mainstream and using Rosalina. Think she's the same weight class as DK which is also the weight class I prefer.
    Don't tell her though.

    A real Metroid, not federation force, nothing like Other M, make a classic 2D game, game like Prime or pull a BOTW for Metroid.

    even though its early in development, Atlus should promote Shin Megami Tensei HD alongside 3DS's Deep Strange Journey, since DSJ's debut stream did include more teaser footage of SMT Switch.

    it could also appear at E3. Dynasty Warriors 9 just barely got revealed, and even at 40% development Koei are going to start marketing it and revealing more all the way to winter release.

    this year is Shin Megami Tensei 25th anniversary, so Atlus and Nintendo can really promote SMT HD, their most high production values project since SMT III Nocturne, so it can become mainstream on Switch, just as Persona 5 became mainstream popular on PS4, Shin Megami Tensei HD/V can become mainstream popular and successful on Switch. Fire Emblem was niche until the modern era with Awakening and Fates, so it's not late for Shin Megami Tensei series to become mainstream starting on Nintendo console. Atlus just has to do it right, market it right, and the Switch fanbase has to fully support it.



    http://shin-megamitensei.jp/

    and with outstanding success, they could then start to bring the classics and remasters to Switch, making it the new modern platform for SMT fans

    E3 better have some Mario Maker news 'cause I need a proper portable version, yo.

    Edit: And a new Advance Wars would REALLY be surprising. That series has been dead for years and years. I never did bother to do the final mission in Days of Ruin, come to think of it, despite acing basically every mission up until then...

    Days of Ruin had a good story at the end. Definitely better than any of the previous ones. In order for the games to gain mainstream appeal, maybe (and this is me disliking the genre) make advance wars a MOBA?

    Days of Ruin was cool but it seems strategy titles on Nintendo portables only work with a big dose of waifu these days. Don't really want Advance Wars turn into what Fire Emblem is now.

    Thankfully there's a blatant rip-off coming out:

    sheeeeeit, I may have my new regular pick in Mario Kart for now... Dry Bones is That DUDE, man. :triumph: As I've seen online and my own observation, traction and handling...and yeah acceleration... that's the golden keys there.

    E3 needs to hurry on up... I'm ready for some announcements that blow me away hype. I intend to take at least 2 days or so off it as well (it is surprising that I never did that before)

    Sadly, my vacation is happening after E3, so I can't get hype while watching live at home. Expectations are going to be high since the Switch is new and popular. Devs have a chance to really shine.

    I've been thinking about trying to get a Switch dev kit, as I have an idea for a game that I would like to make on it. I just hope it's as straightforward to acquire one as they make it seem: https://developer.nintendo.com/

    When the Virtual Console is eventually launched, it would be cool if one of the initial games for it is Mother 3. The only reason I'm still hopeful for Mother 3 is because of the release of Earthbound Beginnings.

    sheeeit,

    Mario Kart 8---they have Shyguy in there... I keep wondering...what about Wart? They got Bowser and Wario's fat asses in there... there's a LOT of characters from the Mario(+Dokki Dokki Panic) universe that could've been great additions. I would've thrown Mouser in there too. Chargin' Chuck is another one.

    *More races-- Iggy is working out well for me so far.... it would be nice to have some achievements on this system. I realize it's popular to hate achievements but I have no shame in admitting I enjoy them as the little extras they are.

    Thumper is coming out on Thursday. If you haven't played it yet, it's in its essence a rhythm game with a very unique flow to it. If REZ had a cousin who was into cars and also kinda violent and rebellous and a drug addict I think he might look like Thumper.

    You should check it out, it's pretty cool. And really hard.

    I watched some gameplay of Thumper and I thought it looked pretty cool. Looked fast and fun. I don't have a Switch (or any other new console for that matter) and my laptop cant run it. Sad times.

    Hey, we got a Nintendo character of color (no idea what but I ain't complaining) and its a twin tail. As long as she don't pull an Elma from Xenoblade Chronicles X or just suck competitively, its all good.

    That being said, Helix and Master Mummy look like they could be broken, it will be interesting how quick the first round of nerfs hit.

    To me it seems every character in ARMS can be OP with the right weapons. Seems to me that's their philosphy: counterpick with the right items and gloves and pick the character with the skill you're feeling most comfortable with.

    Definitely looking forward to the Global Testpunch to give it a try.
