Everyone, including me thought Splatoon should have been a cheap download game when first shown. The people who have played Arms at the event are saying it's great. I personally don't want a one on one brawler, but I'd like to try a demo.

I knew it'd be great from the first time I saw it.  I don't feel the same about ARMs.  It's one on one and will be a too serious game because of it

How close after Christmas are you talking about? The week before and after Christmas are pretty much the busiest time of the year. Really tough to find any deals at all that time of year too. If you are willing to stay off property though, I know you can probably stay at a decent place if you're willing to do one of those timeshare sales pitches. PM me any details you might have so far, and I will see what I can do to help you out. If nothing else I can tell you what to do once you get inside the park.

Ah the time share pitch, went to many of those growing up. You get like an apartment for cheap.

My wife had some family come down last week and they did this. They got a pretty nice hotel room for 5 nights, got a big discount on their Disney tickets, and like $50 in cash for sitting through a 2 hour presentation.

I just want to re-emphasize that it's insanely busy at that time. Best tip I can offer is just accept beforehand that you won't be able to do everything or even everything you want to do. But if you can deal with the crowds you can still have fun, and there really is nothing more awesome than seeing your kids at Disney for their very first time.

Plus you'll be able to see Donald Trump in the Hall of Presidents.

Ive watched the first seventeen minutes of Zelda from Gamestop.  Good stuff.  It certainly has me curious about the story.  That voice acting....so good

That's what the people who have played it - say is great about it. There's a ton of depth to it and the matches play out like tense chess matches. However they likened it to Splatoon in the sense that anybody could jump in and have a blast.

I could see ARMS having more depth than what was shown. BTW did they mention if there was online fighting for it? That's the one danger Nintendo has run into with just giving 45 days between presentation and launch. Their new games are going to have questions, and there's just enough out there that wading through all the information at this time is pretty damned difficult.

Thinking back on things, I really think going forward for any new consoles they should treat it like Smash Brothers. Announce a good bit up front, and then once a week or so announce one big new thing. Keeps the flow of information steady, and provides something for everyone to regularly look forward to.

Yes Arms has online.

So: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will not feature any new race tracks

Fuck that shit then. MK9 For E3 then. I reckon there was an internal debate on whether the new tracks should be extras in mk8 or just put them into new mk9.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has the new Splatoon track unless that is a battle arena.

I think the main selling point of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is battle mode has been fixed.

That is the main selling point for a lot of people.

My friends would never do any racing after we unlocked all the tracks we always played battle mode so it is great that they finally fixed it.

SUPER MARIO MAKER LEVELS:

  • SMB Mix-Up! (1AB2-0000-0047-5A7D)
  • Storm the Castle (77BD-0000-00E0-A9C0)

That's what I realise. The leakers who were pretty reliable got some things wrong so their hype backfired.

While it seems they're throwing in the kitchen sink and then some, I'd be very happy if the actual tablet portion has some tricks up its sleeve, if only to validate the Switch as a portable with some quirks.  One of my main concerns is that since the dock covers the screen, there'd be very few quirky 'portable only' games like the ones we've seen on the DS and 3DS.

Jesus. Since the GameTM stores closed down around my area there are no local gameshops. I went to CEX which sells dvds and game and they only sell used so no pre-order for Switch. Called the local Wallmart equivalent, no dice.

Had to order online and they usually deliver several days later than launch.

WTF is going on with game prices? Switch Zelda is £60 and Wii U Zelda is £40? But MK8 Deluxe is £47.

Weird shit. I decided to go all in on Switch concerning several ports. So I'm selling Lego City to pay for the new one. Thankfully I got the limited edition version so it has held its value quite well. Went to see Skyrim 360 which I still haven't played and it's like £3 on ebay! So no money there.

Then I hear MK8 deluxe only has new battle tracks and then with the paid online... no point really.
