I especially hate the Metroid Prime Trilogy rumor. Various "leakers" have been saying "It's right around the corner!" about 5 different times in the last year.

This. It's like people enjoy setting themselves up for disappointment. But yeah, I agree; these leaks are getting ridiculous. If I were in a position where I truly "knew" such things, I'd rather keep the trust of those involved intact versus netting myself fifteen minutes of fame on the internet.

Or maybe I'm just cynical today.

I feel like that kind of vague speculation isn't worth it. But I guess it generates clicks and no one forces me to read it. But I am kinda sick of all the "thinks" "suspects" and "probably"s...

The thing is, I like reading other people's speculation. Around E3 I actually enjoy reading the fake BS rumors because I get to know what kinds of things people want/are expecting.

TF2 isn't dead and still fun as hell
Undertale is an overrated, overhyped piece of crap

Tetris 99 was a disappointment for me. I was really excited for it when I saw it in the direct and the game itself is well made, but I just don't think the concept works as well in practice as it does on paper.

It just feels like an ordinary game of Tetris, except after a while your board randomly fills up and you die. The interaction between other players feels almost unnoticeable most of the time, you can choose who you attack but it often feels like it affects nothing. And the very first round I played I had no idea how any of that stuff worked, and I still got 2nd place just by playing it like a normal Tetris game.

I hate first person shooters, all of them. Just put one in front of me and you will se my eyes turning red in matter of seconds.

You should get that checked, it’s probably not good for your eyes.

Mallow4smash>Geno4smash.

Personally don't think any of the Mario RPG characters deserve to be in smash, as they all have only been in one game. But if any of them are gonna get in, I want it to be Mallow. I think his weather magic would make him a fun character to play.

Awwww snap. You went after Undertale. The internet will hunt you down.

Not me though, I haven't even played it because I didn't love Earthbound and figured Undertale wasn't for me. I may give it a try someday, but lately 90% of the games I've played that I figured I wouldn't like...I didn't like (coughDarkSoulscough)

My contribution to this thread:
I think Skyward Sword is WAY better than Majora's Mask. Better Dungeons (Gawd, so much better), better music, better character development, better sidekick (Tatl sucks. Midna is better than Fi though, I'm not crazy), better villain (Ghirahim is so much better than Skullkid), equal atmosphere (in different ways), motion controls are far less annoying than the time mechanic (lemme go claim my rupees for the millionth time), better boss battles, and better contribution to the lore (convoluted as it is). Majora's Mask's sidequests are pretty stellar though...too bad 3/4 of the masks you only use once...

@R_Champ Hah, let them come i'll be ready! Also yeah Ghirahim is a sick ass villain.

And now i will contribute again:
Geno isn't needed in Smash, seeing him would be a huge disappointment for me after seeing Joker getting in.

I’ve noticed something that’s always confused me and I’m not entirely sure if it’s an unpopular observation. But basically every video game community (or any large community in general) that I’ve been a part of have always had ‘toxic’ components or are very similar in those aspects.

To put it simply, I always see people say this community is toxic because this or that. It’s stupid, pseudo-intellectual or an echo chamber, but then every time I think about it, I’m like yeah. That part is, but that’s to be expected for basically any large community to have that. Now that doesn’t excuse it or justify it in any way, but it always feels like a somewhat pointless observation to make sometimes. There are exceptions though, like in most general statements. So basically my current opinion is that every large video game community has a toxic aspect or can be seen as toxic. But that shouldn’t always define a community

@R_Champ I'm still working through Majora's Mask, but really the biggest issue with the dungeons in Majora's Mask is the time mechanic. Getting all the stray fairies while also completing the dungeon in time can be challenging, and I don't get to really sit down and enjoy the dungeon. This is made worse by the fact that you have to get it all in one sitting.

I literally had to leave my gamecube running when I had to leave for a bit, and by the end I was just so exhausted and tired of the dungeon that I looked up a guide. That's not the experience you want your players having.

The time mechanic is simultaneously brilliant and absolutely miserable because it's combined with saving.

With that said, I don't remember ever getting stuck in any of Skyward Sword's dungeons. I found most of them remarkably easy, and frankly, a bit lacking in the atmospheric diversity Twilight Princess had. Skykeep was my favorite because it was the only one that was non-linear and had some level of backtracking involved in progression. All of SS's dungeons were straight lines, so they felt closer to a string of puzzles than an actual dungeon. Interestingly enough I found Skyward Sword's overworld areas to be better dungeons than the dungeons themselves.

I'm very mixed about Skyward Sword's characters. Yes, the main cast of Zelda, Groose, Ghirahim, and Impa are great. But that's it. Among all the other NPCs in the game, the only other one that becomes remotely interesting is the Skipper robot, who is self aware of his own demise, and has an interesting level of self reflection. Everyone else is just happy-go-lucky goofy, which is kind of boring when they are asking me to do main quests and side quests. Even Breath of the Wild, which isn't known for it's story, has more memorable sidequest stories. Majora's Mask is really the polar opposite on this front, because almost every character has a dark backstory that affects me as the player.

I unironically like playing as Big the cat in Sonic Adventure.

Just went through his campaign in SA again for the first time in a long time, and was mostly disappointed by how short it was. Like, 30 minutes tops.

This is an opinion I will never understand.

On the topic of Sonic - I don't think the Sonic movie looks any worse than Detective Pikachu.

All consoles that are not made by Nintendo are overrated. Also 90% of games not made by Nintendo are overrated.

The Nintendo Switch is not as great as I thought.
I admit that I was almost an "extremist" in my circle of friends.
I explained that the Switch was the best system ever with a lot of great exclusive titles and an awesome catalogue.

Today, I go back on Earth and I realize that I was too excited about the Switch.
In hindsight, I can say that the Switch disappoints me after more than 2 years of existence.
