Let’s Talk

The Wall Street Journal reported this week that a new animated Mario movie is on the way. Illumination Entertainment, the studio behind the Despicable Me and Minions films, has been apparently pegged to work on Nintendo’s project. It’s far from an announcement, but The Wall Street Journal tends to be accurate with these kinds of reports.

Just the thought of any new Mario movie may strike fear into the hearts of dedicated Nintendo fans. There was a Super Mario Bros. movie way back in 1996, though many would say that it was downright terrible. If Nintendo is making a new Mario movie, you still have reason to be cautious. However, there would be a couple of things going for it.

First, Shigeru Miyamoto should be on board. The Wall Street Journal said that Miyamoto was pushing for a producer role. The fact that it would be animated also helps big time. Live action doesn’t make much sense for Mario, but animation is much more appropriate.

So let’s just say that this movie is in fact happening. Is there anything in particular you’d like to see from it? What about things you’d like to see Illumination Entertainment and Nintendo avoid? Let us know in the comments below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: What are you playing? – November 2017

A new month is here! We just entered November this week, so that means we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Have you started up something entirely new for the month? Are you still knee-deep with Super Mario Odyssey? Whatever the case, let us know in the comments below!

Highlights from last week’s topic: Early Super Mario Odyssey impressions

Super Mario Odyssey has only been around for a day or so, but we imagine that many of you have picked the game up already. We’re also sure that many of you have played it extensively as well.

Assuming you’ve been able to pick up a copy, how are you liking Super Mario Odyssey so far? What are your impressions? Let us know in the comments below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: Any interest in Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon?

In a month from now, two new Pokemon games will be on 3DS. Of course, we’re referring to Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon.

From the minute these titles were announced, they underwent quite a bit of scrutiny. Fans were hoping that new Pokemon games would be announced for Switch, but instead, they were revealed for 3DS. Making matters somewhat worse is that they’re new versions of last year’s Sun/Moon. It took some time to really understand what makes Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon different from the 2016 games. It really wasn’t until the past couple of months – these last few weeks in particular – that some of the new elements have been highlighted.

So how many of you have interest in Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon (or not at all)? Have you moved on from 3DS to Switch at this point? Or do you intend to fire up the handheld next month for the new games? Let us know in the comments below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: What are you playing? – October 2017

A new month is here! We just entered October this week, so that means we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Have you started up something entirely new for the month? With all of the new indies on Switch, have you given any of them or a try? Or maybe you’re starting up Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions, which launched yesterday. Whatever the case, let us know in the comments below!

Highlights from last week’s topic: Do you care about Switch home menu icons?

Much has been made about Switch icons over the past few months – particularly the way they look. Some system owners have been very vocal about the icons they feel just don’t look good. Snake Pass, LEGO Worlds, and SteamWorld Dig 2 are among the games players have requested to be changed.

I almost feel as though I’ve been living in an alternate reality watching this all unfold. Rather than focusing on what a quality game like SteamWorld Dig 2 is, some are instead fixated on that home menu icon. Personally, as long as I know which icon a game represents and the text is there, the actual design doesn’t matter much to me at all. But hey, I could be completely out of touch.

So let’s have a discussion about this. How important are Switch icons to you? I’m very curious as to how everyone feels about the topic since we haven’t covered it before, so share your thoughts with us below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: September 2017 Nintendo Direct reactions

Another Nintendo Direct is in the books. Setting aside Nintendo’s E3 presentation and game-specific broadcasts, it’s been quite awhile since the last one.

There ended up being a ton of news in this week’s Nintendo Direct. Four games in particular were highlighted: Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (now with a December 1 release date), Project Octopath Traveler (with an eShop demo), and Super Mario Odyssey. A few announcements were made as well, including the surprising Doom and Wolfenstein II Switch ports, the first Dragon Quest Builders for Switch, arcade games from Nintendo and Hamster, Kirby Battle Royale and Mario Party: The Top 100 for 3DS, Minecraft: New 3DS Edition, and Atlus localizing The Alliance Alive. Other news was also shared like the November 17 Skyrim release date and more.

So how’s everyone feeling about the Nintendo Direct? Although Nintendo didn’t have much in the way of brand new Switch games, many games were shown. Did the presentation meet your expectations, or were you disappointed in any way? Share your thoughts with us below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: Digital vs. physical

If you want to buy a game these days, there are two major ways to do so. You can either purchase a physical copy at retailers, or pick up the digital version from a place like the eShop.

Some folks prefer going all digital so that games can be easily accessed. Not having to deal with boxes and clutter might be viewed as another plus. But on the other hand, buying a physical copy means you’ll absolutely have the game forever (assuming the disc doesn’t break), and it’s a way of collecting something tangible.

Personally, I’m somewhere in the middle. I do prefer physical copies, but if a game is only being sold digitally, that won’t stop me from making a purchase. And if I see that a digital copy has received a massive discount, I’ll probably opt for that instead of going the physical route.

Which side of the fence do you side on? Do you lean one way in particular? Do you refuse to buy any games digitally (or vice versa)? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: What are you playing? – September 2017

A new month is here! We just entered September yesterday, so that means we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Have you started up something entirely new for the month? Are you giving Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle a shot, or something else?. Whatever the case, let us know in the comments below!

Highlights from last week’s topic: Third-party games you’d like to see ported to Switch

Switch continues to receive new games, but older titles are being brought over as well. We’ve seen this with third-parties, and even Nintendo. Although in Nintendo’s case, their “ports” have some extra bells and whistles – like the revamped Battle Mode in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and new arcade fighters for Pokken Tournament DX.

Capcom recently announced Resident Evil Revelations Collections for Switch. That could be just the tip of the iceberg, as the publisher seems to be preparing more titles for the system as well. So I thought this could pave the way for an interesting topic to discuss: third-party games we’d like to see ported to Switch.

I’ll get the discussion started here. There are two clear games that come to mind when I think about third-party games I’d like to see brought over to Switch. With rumors about Okami being released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year, a Switch version would be lovely. I’d happily buy the game for a third time if it meant being able to play it on the go. I’d also really like to see Persona 5 on Switch. I played through the entirety of Persona 4 Golden on the PlayStation Vita, and having that handheld experience would be fantastic.

But how about you? Is there any game – or games – in mind outside of Nintendo that you’d like to see make the jump to Switch? If not, that’s completely fine as well. Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
