Yeah that sounds about right. It looks like they outsourced support to the Core Group in SA, who are providing a very typical SA level of service.
I’m a pretty recent member of the Nintendo gaming community. I was (and still am) a pretty ardent PC and Playstation gamer, but have also now gone through three 3DS consoles and have a Switch. It’s been a wonderful increase in the diversity of my gaming experiences and in terms of both actual games and hardware I’m…
TOKYO, JAPAN — What originally began as a peaceful demonstration by high school-age anime fans in Tokyo quickly turned ugly on Tuesday. A Prefecture-wide protest lamenting the limited number of window-adjacent classroom seats devolved into chaos when the Education Board formally responded, noting that altering the…
Into the Breach takes infrastructure seriously. Appropriately, the importance of infrastructure is shown by its incorporation into the game’s mechanics. It’s the sustaining condition of entire timelines, and while it might not lead directly to victory, its absence results in failure.
Let this Ace preface this article by making the following declaration: I like female characters.
I really liked this anime. I spend a lot of time in the arcades playing fighting games in my youth and it just completely spoke to me. It’s the type of anime where I really want to recommend it to people, but the venn diagram overlap of “likes anime” and “likes old school fighting games” isn’t as big as you would…
The airport scene. RIP my heart.
Anyone who has ever played Street Fighter can relate to the first episode.
Some of the most enjoyable parts for me too is what surrounds the gaming part of the series, my parents never gave me much pocket money to hang out at an arcade, an we didn’t really have one in town, but i do remember some of the consoles. One of my favourite parts though is when Koharu has to study abroad and Harou…
I’ve been enjoying this series a lot aswell! It plays out sort of like a history lesson about the arcade culture wrapped in a slice of life anime. It’s great!
So those other racers are just moving obstacles with speed relative to yours, rather than the stationary obstacles of the track. They give you the feeling of competition without directly impacting your ongoing goal (which is, in true arcade form, simply to keep going).
You’re reading Warped Pipes, the series where I try my darndest to put all of the Super Mario games in order, one by one. This time, I’ll be deconstructing...
Godbrand was fantastic, it’s not the exact quote but him basically saying “I’m a viking, I fucking love boats, so what?” freaking killed me and my wife.
You’re reading Warped Pipes, the series where I try to do what Nintendon’t and sort out the timeline of the Super Mario franchise. This time around, I’ll discuss a particularly odd entry in which Mario enters into armed conflict. I’m talking, of course, about...
Welcome once again to Warped Pipes, the series where I dig deep into the lore of the Super Mario franchise in order to generate the series timeline that no one asked for.
It wasn’t as bad as Xros Wars Season 3, but hoo boy, Tri is up there.
Welcome back to another entry in Warped Pipes, the series where I waste my time, and yours, sorting out the continuity of a franchise that was never meant to have one. See the first article to learn about my approach.
Who’s to say I haven’t already?
Welcome to Warped Pipes, a new series of articles I’ll be writing about the Super Mario video game franchise. In this series, I’ll be diving deep into the stories and lore of the Super Mario games with the goal of, at long last, creating a coherent canonical timeline for the franchise. Sound ridiculous? It will be.
Getting more blades and then the 4th and 5th characters are key. It opens up a lot of combinations. I was smart I saved up a bunch of core crystals for when I get new people and just use them all on the new person and generally got there full three unlocks.
