Not too thrilled with the Octoling amiibo's

The colouring makes it look like they're covered in bubblegum.  Very confusing with that new Splatoonesque game Ninjala about bubblegum ninja's announced for Switch.

[eurogamer.net]PS4 Fortnite account curse is not "for the players" at all "It doesn't feel like it helps grow gaming to me."

It's easy to see the business side of this, with Sony having more PS4's in the wild than Xbones and Switch's combined.  I wonder if Sony will change it's stance during the inevitable PS5 reveal though.  They won't want to risk losing the goodwill they built with PS4 going into a new gen, especially not with how homogenous MS and Sony platforms have become over the years.  I can imagine the reveal, where they triumphantly announce they want the best for us, the gamers, and will allow cross play between platforms.  After the reveal, everyone will be high fiving Sony and will have forgotten how uptight Sony had been on the issue for years on end.

It's kind of funny, I never realized Fortnite was a free game. Apparently, it's not even pay to win, as all the things you can purchase for the game are strictly cosmetic. So all the controversy kind of made me aware of exactly what the game is and I just downloaded it. Will be trying it out tonight.

I think Sony is just delaying the inevitable with this crossplay between all platforms. It seems to be really heating up after this Fortnite issue so whatever speeds this up sounds good to me.

  • Sony's stock actually dropped 2% because it wouldn't let Fortnite players play on Switch.
  • The Bethesda Skyrim joke IS A REAL GAME. Read the updates people.

Are you serious? I'm downloading the Octopath Traveler demo for the next two hours. Then Fortnite is queued for a 2gb download and then the Octo Expansion after that. With my current connection maybe if I leave it on overnight I will have something to play in the morning. indecision

They look awesome, but I see what you mean about Ninjala.

The review says that to do everything will take 15-20 hrs.

Review said:

Again, we’re watching what we say so that we don’t venture anywhere near the dastardly realm of spoilers, but the story really is fantastic. Everything unfolds naturally and you can even read through some beautifully charming optional chatroom logs between Captain Cuttlefish, Pearl, and Marina, to help flesh their characters out even further. It also helps to expand upon the lore of the Splatoon world, introducing more species, more details, and even some history to boot. The whole thing is a love letter to the fans, and the passion for the franchise has clearly never been higher for the devs.

Now let’s chat about the presentation. Holy sweet giblets this is one fine-looking son of a squid. From the grungy look of the subway to the neon lights scattered with care and attention, it’s simply an absolute joy to wade through. There are more cutscenes than ever before, which really gives the characters more weight and personality than we’ve seen previously. Most of the assets you’ll find are brand-spanking new; the skyboxes are looking better than ever with GameCubes and Game Boys littered throughout, and the music is beyond funky fresh. Every single area is brimming with more details than you could possibly appreciate when trying to splat everything on screen.

Xenoblade-Chronicles-2-Torna-The-Golden-Country.jpg

- work began 3 years ago, as Torna ~The Golden Country was part of the initial plot for the main game


- to be more accurate, it was one of the possible “candidate” stories to be included in the initial plot


- Tetsuya Takahashi realized including Torna~The Golden Country in the main game would push them over budget


- on top of that, they wouldn't be able to complete development in the allotted time either


- without showing it to anyone, Tetsuya Takahashi decided to move ahead without that story


- Torna ~The Golden Country sat on Takahashi’s computer for a while, but was revisited when the idea of DLC came up


- takes place 500 years before the events of Xenoblade Chronicles 2


- tells the story of Jin, Mythra, Malos, and Amlathus, but also Lora and Addam


- the main characters are Jin and Lora


- find out Jin and Lora's past, and the relationship between Addam and Mythra


- the devs upgraded the character models that were originally used in the cutscenes of the main game


- takes place on Torna, a Titan


- here you can find the Capital of the Kingdom of Torna, which is a town that you can explore


- the battle system is slightly different, since the DLC takes place in the past, before Drivers and Blades worked together


- basics of the battle system remains the same


- will feature new music tracks from the same composers who worked on the main game


- the atmosphere of the story DLC is slightly more “mature” than the main game, which is reflected in the soundtrack


- the music “might” feel a little different than in Xenoblade Chronicles 1 and Xenoblade Chronicles 2


- there will be some acoustic tracks


- if you play Torna ~The Golden Country first, then you may get to see elements from the main game in a different light

On a somewhat related note: scientists have scienced that we have more cocaïne in the sewer water running from our small town than either Paris or Berlin. It wasn't stated if this was proportionally speaking or absolute.
