Let’s Talk

Assuming Nintendo doesn’t have an imminent surprise in store, we still won’t know what the NX actually is by the end of next week. That means September will have come and gone without a reveal. I personally did believe that we would be seeing the system this month, but that’s looking incredibly unlikely at this point.

Common sense would tell you that Nintendo will finally show us what the NX has to offer next month. The company’s Q2 earnings release is scheduled for October 26, and I just can’t see the big N going past that date. October also leaves us with six months before March – the month when Nintendo said NX would be launching. Might October finally be our lucky month?

When Nintendo is ready to talk about NX, there’s going to be a lot to show – what the system is, how much it’ll cost, upcoming games, a specific launch date, and plenty more. And hey… NX probably isn’t the final name!

So let’s talk about this a bit. Do you guys have any predictions in store for the NX’s unveiling? Do you have a certain date in mind as to when the NX will be properly announced and when it will be released? What projects from Nintendo – and other game makers – do you see being present at the event? Any name predictions? Let us know in the comments below!

Highlights from last week’s topic: What are you playing? – September 2016

Prior to this week’s Nintendo Direct, we had gone several months without a major presentation. March was the last time when we saw a broadcast with new announcements in a prepared video. Most people have been expecting that we’d hear something about NX soon, but Nintendo first decided to share news about the 3DS.

Quite a bit was shown during the Nintendo Direct on Thursday. Not all of the games themselves were new, but it at least showed that the 3DS will continue to receive support into next year. Super Mario Maker is heading to Nintendo’s portable in December, followed by Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World next February (with a Poochy amiibo of course), Mario Sports Superstars in spring, Dragon Quest VIII, and a Pikmin side-scroller. Let’s also not forget about Ever Oasis and Tank Troopers. Nintendo also unveiled new Zelda amiibo, released new Hyrule Warriors DLC, Picross 3D: Round 2 (in North America, December 2 in Europe with a physical option) and Zelda: Skyward Sword digitally, and teased Animal Crossing: New Leaf’s update (with new amiibo cards and a Nintendo Direct to come).

Now that our brief recap is out of the way, what do you think of this week’s Nintendo Direct? Were you pleased with what was shown, or were you let down? Have any thoughts about particular games? Let us know in the comments below.

[Let’s Talk] Your dream NX game

Posted on 11 months ago by (@NE_Brian) in Let's Talk | 123 Comments | 0 Likes

We still don’t know a whole lot about NX. Within the next few weeks, that will hopefully change. When Nintendo is finally ready to talk about its new platform, we’ll actually learn about what this thing is, and we should be seeing some games as well.

It is interesting how a few games have been confirmed for the NX even though it’s yet to be properly unveiled. Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Dragon Quest XI, Dragon Quest X, Project Sonic 2017, and Just Dance 2017 will be on the system. There are some other probable candidates like Pikmin 4.

In terms of unannounced titles, what do you want to see? What would be your dream NX game? Do share your thoughts with us in the comments below!

Highlights from last week’s topic: Thoughts on Metroid Prime: Federation Force

Metroid Prime: Federation Force might be one of Nintendo’s most controversial games in recent years. The reception has been very mixed – leaning more towards the negative side – since its reveal in 2015, and the conversations haven’t slowed down since then. But on Friday, the game finally launched and everyone has a chance to play it for themselves.

We thought Metroid Prime: Federation Force was alright, as you can read in our review. It’s definitely not one of the worst titles on 3DS, but we feel it’s not towards the top of what the system has to offer as well. The critical reception has also been mixed. Some outlets feel strongly that Federation Force is a great release while others haven’t felt nearly the same. Given how things have gone for the game, I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised by the critical reaction.

If you’ve had a chance to play Metroid Prime: Federation Force since it came out yesterday, what are your feelings on it thus far? If you don’t have it yet, do you intend to change that at any point down the line? What are your thoughts on it in general? Let us know in the comments below!

Highlights from last week’s topic: What are you playing? – August 2016

A new month is here! We’ve just entered August, so that means we want to know what you’ve been playing. Have you started up something entirely new for the month? Or maybe you’re continuing something you started a little while back? Whatever the case, let us know in the comments below!

Highlights from last week’s topic: Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition

Nintendo made an announcement a couple of weeks ago that not many saw coming. In November, the company will be bringing back the NES. Nintendo is readying a mini version of its classic console as a plug-and-play device under the name “Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition”.

The NES Classic Edition will cost $60, but you’re getting quite a lot for that price. 30 games are included in the box, meaning its $2 for each one. There are some absolute classics in there such as Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, and much more.

How’s everyone feeling about the NES Classic Edition? Will you be picking up one come November? Would you be interested in seeing Nintendo adopt the same idea for some other older systems? Tell us your thoughts below!

Highlights from last week’s topic: Pokemon GO

[Let’s Talk] Pokemon GO

Posted on 1 year ago by (@NE_Brian) in Let's Talk | 33 Comments | 0 Likes

Pokemon GO has been out in United States, Australia, and New Zealand for over a week. The UK’s release took place a few days ago, and 26 new countries just joined in on the fun today. Now that Pokemon GO is available in a bunch of territories, now’s a good as time as ever to talk about it.

Obviously Pokemon GO a massively hot topic right now. It’s definitely invaded the mainstream, and we’re even seeing it covered by notable news outlets.

So how’s everyone feeling about Pokemon GO? Have you had a chance to try it out? If so, what do you think of it thus far? Are there are improvements/features you’d like to see? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below!

Highlights from last week’s topic: What are you playing? – July 2016

A new month is here! We’ve just entered July, so that means we want to know what you’ve been playing. Have you started up something entirely new for the month? Or maybe you’re continuing something you started a little while back? Whatever the case, let us know in the comments below!

Highlights from last week’s topic: Zelda: Breath of the Wild reaction and Nintendo’s E3

Just a week ago we were talking about what we wanted from Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Nintendo as a whole at this year’s E3. And now… it’s over! With everything so fresh, it’s a good time to talk about it all.

There’s no question that Zelda: Breath of the Wild was the highlight at E3. Nintendo kicked off the show with a trailer, followed by hours of coverage on the Treehouse stream. The game was a very hot commodity at E3. Even though Nintendo’s entire booth was dedicated to Breath of the Wild, that wasn’t enough to prevent massive lines.

Aside from Breath of the Wild, there was quite a bit more to Nintendo’s E3 than we would have thought a few weeks ago. A brand new 3DS action-RPG, Ever Oasis, was announced. We also heard about new amiibo, Mario Party: Star Rush, BoxBoxBoy! in the west, and Rhythm Heaven Megamix even had a stealth launch on the North American 3DS eShop. There were also release dates and coverage of games like Paper Mario: Color Splash and Dragon Quest VII.

With everything that happened at E3, what’s your reaction? What do you think of Zelda: Breath of the Wild thus far? If you have any thoughts about Nintendo at E3, be sure to tell us in the comments below!

Highlights from last week’s topic: Nintendo at E3 2016

It’s been a strange couple of months as Nintendo shared its plans for E3 2016. We quickly learned that there would be absolutely no NX news, nor a Nintendo Direct / Digital Event. Zelda Wii U is going to be playable, but it’ll be the only game at the show. Nintendo did say recently that its two-day Treehouse stream will feature Pokemon Sun/Moon, Pokemon GO, Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, Monster Hunter Generations, and Dragon Quest VII in addition to Zelda.

Going into E3, how’s everyone feeling about things? Are you excited to finally get a good look at the new Zelda game? Are you bummed about the company’s approach to the expo this year? Is there anything you hope to see – be it an already-announced game or an announcement – during the Treehouse stream? Let us know in the comments below! We’ll reconvene next week – crazy to thing it’ll all be over by then!
