I think the main reason for a DQ character to not get included already is because Sugiyama

None of the power up guns in Heavy Burger feel right enough to give you any sudden sense of control of whatever mess is going on on screen. This took me by surprise but I think I like it.

Switch Outrun has a YM2151 version of my favorite track on the Genesis port

does anyone want to get in on a nintendo online family subscription

w 8 ppl, it wld be $4.30 US/ $6.80 AU each for a 1 yr sub

Switch Smash apparently doesn’t have a version of Smash Run and I’m sad/pissed about it because IMO it is the best form of what HAL tried to do with Kirby Air Ride’s City Trial mode and it works so well as something to play on a handheld.


#1289

i’d be keen. gonna ask my lil brother if he wants in too?


#1290

switch family plans are the most wholesome scam


#1291

Bought a family plan for my bros and downloaded the Nintendo Entertainment System™ – Nintendo Switch Online. I’ve decided that video games got good around 1991.

I only like the handful of NES games that are designed around the input limitations, e.g. Mario, Balloon Fight, or RPGs. I get irritated with anything that isn’t hiding behind physics or menus.

RIP Filmstruck, I never got around to using the student rate


#1296

this is bullshit of them because Clash of the Titans wasn’t even a particularly old movie at that point (it was 81) and they’re acting like it was a 50s swords and sandals epic

also it has that fucking owl


#1297

oh god did I just imply a then 30 year old movie isn’t old


#1298

Sad also that humanities funding has been so desiccated that our generation doesn’t get to be the vanguard of academic and historical study of the medium the way those who grew up alongside the birth of film did.


#1299

we can, we just have to be really obnoxious about it


#1300

are you saying having thousands of games available for download while ignoring copyright law isn’t obnoxious
