Nintendo General

Post by bomaye on Thu Oct 20, 2016 1:16 am

Nintendo's been balling the last little while

- Pokemon Go was apparently a popular thing
- NES Mini incoming in the next few weeks. One box, 30 NES games, save states, HDMI output, basically a huge waste of cash if you have an internet connection because of emulators a blast from the past if your bones only recently started creaking
- Pokemon Sun and Moon incoming, there's already a demo up on the 3DS. It's heavily based on Hawai'i, the bad guys are white rappers, and the entire Pokedex got accidentally leaked already OOPS
- The Nintendo NX is getting revealed tomorrow or the day after. From rumours and leaks:

- It's multi-purpose: You can plug it into your TV, or you can carry it around with you like a tablet. It's mashing together the portable and console lines.
- It uses cartridges instead of discs
- It will launch with a Mario game
- There's supposedly going to be 4 launch games
- Zelda: Breath of the Wild (supposed to be Open World Zelda) is going to be on it
- Pokemon games are also going to be on it
- Supposedly the "basic" price is $299 US and the bundle price is $399 US (investors were supposedly selling stock because they think it's too high)
- It's following the trend of the end of console gaming more or less.

Pretty excited about this (Shiny/thrilled Alola Raticate Shiny/thrilled), but for some reason there are no special release events planned here. Which is nuts, because people here are still playing Pokemon Go in droves, and a Sun/Moon launch party on Oahu would probably be an even bigger turnout than the annual Boyz II Men concert. MISSED OPPORTUNITIES, NINTENDO. Disapproving

(This "Missingno is a Night Marcher" theory is cute though)

So I finally got a chance to play Breath of the Wild today. Until now, either I've been busy or one of my siblings had occupied the Switch. But now, I sat down to play and suddenly three hours had gone by. It feels quite different from most other Zelda-games. I do love the Zelda series in general, but there's nothing wrong with changing it up sometimes.

A friend of mine nicknamed the game "The Legend of Elder Scrolls: Breath of Skyrim". And yeah, describing it as a mix of classic Zelda and Skyrim isn't too inaccurate.

I haven't gotten very far, but so far I love it!

Real late to this party but Breath of the Wild is the first time I've ever owned a Zelda game and I'm loving it and I named my horse Bullseye and if you don't like it you can fuck right off.
