I really hope he doesn’t end up getting nuked from space by Nintendo, like they did with the Nintendo Power scan project at the Internet Archive.

Still watching the first, original 1996 series NGE for the first time. It’s definitely got my interest and I’ll explore the other sequels, spin-offs, etc.

Several days ago, I began watching the original Neon Genesis Evangelion series for the first time, on Netflix. I went in completely blind, knowing nothing about it. I’m really enjoying it so far and eager to finish it so I can start checking out the movies, at least two of which are also on Netflix.

Not many TV shows Read more

I don’t think Steve is any more or less complicated than Hero. You do need to pay attention and have a gameplan to use Steve at a high level, but for more casual players like me, I found him surprisingly easy to use. I also identified some exploits with less-experienced players (pretty much everyone online last night Read more

Wouldn’t the mirror method make everything you see move backwards on the X-axis (horizontal)? That alone would make most games far more difficult.

Anyway Nintendo has been making solutions to the toilet gaming problem for 31 years now

Thank you, Ally, for sharing this — and thank you, Kotaku, for printing it! I have never had even the slightest interest in Barbie games, but I found this story to be insightful, endearing, and heartwarming.

Wait, so you’re telling me that when my friends tried to console me after my dog died by saying she’d crossed the rainbow bridge, they meant she went to Japan?

Major League Baseball has done it for decades. All player contracts are guaranteed, in full. Google “New York Mets Bobby Bonilla contract” for a similar example

It’s Xenoblade Chronicles and I only get the joke because I’m currently playing through the Definitive Edition of that game on Nintendo Switch. Read more

The loss of Ninja and failure of Mixer alone is proof of that.

To be fair, all of those examples were elected officials, some of whom had taken a stand as “religious right” conservatives. Then there’s Bill Clinton, and that’s a whooooole different story.

I’m playing through Xenoblade Chroncles: Definitve Edition right now, so Corpse Run really speaks to me this week. I think I’ve found about 20 “Heart to Heart” locations in the game so far, but I’ve only been able to actually “activate” two of them because of unmet story requirements / affinity levels.

Same here. Also a big Ninja Gaiden fan (if my avatar didn’t give that away). My TG16 Mini arrived on Tuesday, and when I plugged it in, Ninja Ryukenden was one of the first games I tried. About halfway through the first act, I missed a jump and landed between two of the boxer enemies, who juggled my helpless Ryu to Read more

Panel de Pon is a welcome addition (first official release in the Americas under that name; it was called Tetris Attack in its previous SNES incarnation). And Operation Logic Bomb is a forgotten game, so that’s nice.

I’m still perplexed that they haven’t made any of the Donkey Kong Country titles available (legal Read more
