Okay, so I finally managed to watch the direct, and thankfully I got the chance to watch it spoiler-free! (Well most of it lol). I'd say my favorite announcements were

  • Kirby And The Forgotten Land
    I'm really hoping this one isn't as easy and short as Kirby star allies.
  • New Mario Golf update
    I can't believe they made Ninji a character lol! I'm definitely gonna be using him!
  • N64 & Gensis games
    I really hope that the new membership doesn't cost too much more. The games they showed off were absolutely insane! I haven't played any N64 games outside of the original smash bros and Star Fox 64. I really want to try Paper Mario, Banjo-Kazooie, Ocarina of Time (yeah, I haven't played it lol), and pretty much everything else. The Genesis games look great also, I really want to give phantasy star 4 a try.
  • Castlevania Advanced Collection
    I loved the anniversary collection so there's no way I'd miss out on this one I hope I can get it on sale like the first collection.
  • Deltarune Chapter 2
    I really loved undertale and from what I remember I really liked Deltarunes first chapter as well. However, it's been a very long time since I last played either of them so I might just end up doing another playthrough of both.
  • Mario movie cast
    I see I'm not the only one who was fascinated by this lol
  • Bayonetta 3
    I'm a bit sad that this was the one thing I got spoiled on but needless to say, I am SOOOO HYPED for this! It's about time I do another playthrough of Bayonetta 1 and 2. Even though I got spoiled on this reveal, there was a very brief moment where I thought the trailer was for Astral Chain lol. Bayonetta's new voice will take some getting used too but honestly, I'm just really happy this game finally got another trailer.

Of course, there were titles that were already announced like Metroid Dread, and Splatoon 3 which were very welcome. I do have to say though, I'm very surprised we didn't see anything new about Advanced Wars. Seeing how that's actually coming out in winter I thought we would've seen that mentioned.

This tweet made me laugh really hard, I have to admit.

And like I didn't realize until other people point out that...why is his picture like that? No one else's. It's so weird.

Oh boy. Yeah had some talks about dubbing the movie in the Netherlands earlier. I wonder how the movie will fit in.

@Anti-Matter Regarding the mario movie, I think the plot may be humans inhabiting nintendo characters, like we saw in Detective Pikachu. Or maybe something like the plot of the recent Jumanji movies, the main characters were avatars for other actors. Guess we'll see when movie footage releases.

Guys, remember with new rules of PEGI about simulated gambling ?
I saw from playasia, there will be an upcoming casino game called Poker Club on PS4 & PS5.
Untitled
While the game got rated Teen by ESRB, it rated 18 by PEGI.
Well.... Kinda hurt to see, a rated 18 for Casino games with virtual currency to play, not using real money to play. 😣

@TheJGG First of all, nice to "see" you in the Nintendo Direct chat! It was a fairly decent one, and I'm happy for some fans. Nothing new was revealed that I need day one, but there was something for almost everyone. My favorite things to come out of the bunch were Metroid Dread and Kirby and the Forgotten Land. Also glad Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is receiving a physical release, and I'm cautiously optimistic about Triangle Strategy. That last one will require more feedback and likely another demo. Looks like the Mario movie has a decent cast overall, though I'm still getting over the slight shock of Martinet not actually voicing the plumber. Time will tell, and I do hope to judge the film on my own terms vs. some of the knee-jerk reactions already popping up online. Hopefully you weren't too sleep-deprived; It was between 5-6 PM here, so it was dinnertime, not bedtime.

Glad to know I'm not the only one who's been busy, though I'm glad you're able to find some downtime here and there. I've made a little downtime - I've taken today and Monday off, I'm leaving on a small weekend trip tomorrow - to give myself some fun and R&R before a crazy October. I did listen to the songs you linked last time. While I acknowledge The Avalanches as talented, they admittedly aren't quite my cup of tea. CHVRCHES was more to my liking, enough that I do believe I'll give them more listening time soon. Thanks for the suggestions!

On Ys VIII: My initial first impression was very good, but it did fizzle a bit a few hours in when the gameplay and story loop (or lack of any meaningful happenings, really) became a bit same-y...but then the plot started ramping up and became very good after that. Happy you appreciated the music! Spot on with "Deadly Temptation", it plays during some boss sequences. It's suitable for getting the blood pumping! "Opening" uses such an amazing blend of instruments; it's actually attached to the opening video sequence of the game, but I didn't link that in case you wished to experience it when playing...though it doesn't really spoil anything. It acts more as a general overview. It might be a bit before I get to Ys IX: Monstrum Nox since I now intend to play most of the remaining games in narrative order...unless I run out of patience. XD The site Digital Emelas has been a huge help. Most of the games are self-contained story-wise, but there is some overarching lore from what I understand.

I do agree that headphones aren't ideal for all situations; unless I anticipate being in noisy environments on a long trip, I usually do take earbuds since they're more portable. Still, they don't filter out noise as well, and I don't feel that they're as great a quality compared to over-ears phones. True, they are more likely to fall out as a result. I actually still use wired earbuds; I'm not pleased with the battery life for most wireless kinds, plus I'm old-school and still prefer an actual mic jack in my phone.

I actually did manage to read chapter 6 and some of chapter 7 of your Xenoblade novel. I intended to read all of chapter 7, but it was late then and...I fell asleep. Not because I was bored by any means - it was in the middle of the Mechon invasion of Colony 9, after all - but because I was so thoroughly exhausted lol. Looking forward to the Frontier Village bit; that was one of my favorite areas of the game due to how the town was laid out in that giant tree. It felt so...vast, yet quaint and homely at the same time.

While I can't directly contest whether or not the PS5 showcase beat out Nintendo's E3 Direct (I'm of the opinion that Nintendo had a large hand in saving this year's E3, and that's from someone who did watch some of the other showcases), it does sound like Sony's offerings are truly solid. I'd be on board with Spider-Man 2 - love the web-slinger - and Project EVE sounds awesome, though I know little about it. In theory I'd like the God of War series since I enjoy Greek/Roman mythology, but something about the gameplay showcased has never quite appealed to me. Can't quite put my finger on it. I was unaware the team behind that REALLY awesome Majora's Mask short film released a game, so thank you for mentioning Kena: Bridge of Spirits. I want to look into it now! No surprise they're re-releasing other evergreen hits, but hey, money talks, amirite? That said, despite the fact that I own Skyrim on the Switch, I still need to play it....

On the BotW DLC: Thanks! I've found all the extra clothing/armor pieces already and have also been abusing the new horse gear and Korok mask. I hope to visit the Shrine of Resurrection later and start the Champions Ballad main quest. I'll probably leave Trial of the Sword for near last and see how far I get without throwing in the towel; I've heard it's difficult lol.

I read enough of the Pratt comment section to realize that it isn't worth my time and sanity to finish reading it or, heaven forbid, post in it. I recognize he's a flawed human being, but nobody is perfect. I haven't yet seen any films with him in them (Again, still need to watch much of the MCU), but the dude clearly has the talent. The movie isn't even out yet, and people are already complaining. How about we wait until reviews come out or...I dunno...actually see the film? Yes, it's strange Martinet isn't voicing Mario, but we haven't heard him do more than sound bits and phrases. TBH, I'm not sure I'd want an entire movie with his Mario voice, as iconic as it is.

@Sunsy My brain only keep supplying Po and his mannerisms from Kung-Fu Panda, but with a Bowser skin superimposed over it all. XD I'm sure that's not an accurate impression though.

Btw, I do agree with your comments elsewhere regarding the announced new NSO tier. While I don't dislike the service, I've been fairly critical of it from the start since I believe it could easily be improved; sure, Xbox Live and PS+ cost more, but they offer you more for your money. Then there's PC, where the only connectivity you pay for is through your internet provider. Though my stance on the PC side of things is less from a gamer's perspective - I haven't intensely gamed on PC in years - and more from a general IT perspective.

I think people go to the movie to hear Charles now. Not Mario....

@Tyranexx
I don't understand for some peoples keep bad talking about certain famous peoples due to their scandals. Nobody perfect, even peoples like Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Whitney Houston, etc have ever made mistakes and controversial things.

Speaking about Mario movie, Bowser voice is very deep low, so I think Jack Black voice can be lowered the pitch to match with Bowser fierce voice. Mario by Chris Pratt probably will sounds like Barley from Onward (Disney Pixar) with funny accent. Btw, don't you think Ian (Onward) was look like Alfredo Linguini (Ratatouille) and Barley look like Sullivan (Monster Inc) ?

@Sunsy I still have my copy of Kirby Air Ride after all those years ago. That was a good game for sure. I remember wandering around City Trial in it.

I'll wait and see when Nintendo shows off how they're gonna sell the NSO expansion pass. I'm hoping they at least let me upgrade at a discount while I keep the time remaining for my family membership.

@Tyranexx Thanks! I'll let you know what I think when I get around to watching them. Those are all great songs that you've mentioned! They messed up Be Prepared, huh? That was such an awesome villain song from the animated original. We did have An Extremely Goofy Movie back then as well, I'm sure we still have it around somewhere. I pretty much forgot like 90% of the movie though. lol

@tekoii Just wanted to say thanks for having me in your Mario Kart 8 Deluxe tourney! It's been fun...I hope you have a good one.

@Anti-Matter Enjoy it when you get it.

I know, it's a really random choice, well the cast in general is, but I usually think comedy when it comes to Jack Black.

Oh, BTW, I thought of you today. I watched My Little Pony: A New Generation on Netflix, and two of the characters had a dance-off on a DDR-like game complete with dance mat, lol. Given you love DDR, it made me think of you.

@Tyranexx It may even be funnier to see him try to make Bowser sound like Bowser. The weird part is the movie is most likely CGI, sooo I'm picturing the Mario characters looking the same.

Thanks for agreeing. Understandable, I feel PC and old Nintendo got online right. Pay for the game, and have access to all of it. All NSO, Xbox Live, and PlayStation Plus does is lock features you already paid for when you bought the game behind a paywall. Will say, I do like how some older PC games use direct IP, instead of relying on a service. Because of that, I was playing Doom, as in the 1993 classic game, online with a friend earlier today.

From the looks of it, NSO just feels like a classic gaming service, with online multiplayer tacked on. I really feel if Nintendo made NSO into a classics games on demand service, and left multiplayer out of it, I think it would be better received.

As someone who plays Brawlhalla occasionally, I will say, I still amuses me a free-to-play game that doesn't require NSO, has next to no lag when compared to Smash Bros, which is laggy. I prefer Brawlhalla for occasional online fights because of it (and bought a TMNT skin since I like the game).

@MarioLover92 Yeah, I don't really see a reason to upgrade to the new tier. Maybe if they threw in GBA and the tier upgrade was cheap, and Sonic Advance was added, yeah I might consider it. The state it's in, I see no reason to upgrade it.

Will say, I did enjoy some of the lesser known SNES games on the service, like Magical Drop II and Psycho Dream. Getting games from other countries is honestly something positive I have to say about the service, I like discovering stuff I never played and end up liking them.

I honestly have zero problem with Chris Pratt voicing Mario, in fact the more I think about it the happier I become knowing Mario's voice is in his absolutely capable hands. The biggest indications that he's the man for the role; either Guardians of the Galaxy or The Lego Movie, two instances where he played what seemed at face value to be highly generic character stereotypes, but with much deeper complexion. He's also a very naturally funny person, able to do all kinds of comedy, from awkward and self-depreciating to the overconfident-but-insecure, and more.

To my surprise he hasn't been in many blockbuster films outside of those two examples. I'm really excited to see what he can do. Charles Martinet is absolutely fantastic, if not the epitome of videogame mascot voices, but I agree that hearing 100 minutes of his falsetto will get on peoples' nerves. @Anti-Matter I saw you posted a video about the evolution of Mario's voice, that made me realise that Chris absolutely has everything it takes to do it right. I actually liked Hotel Mario's voice, it was the right balance between Brooklyn "I'm walkin' over 'here" and... Mario-ness.

As for Bowser and Jack Black... I honestly could not have thought of a better combination! I actually asked my dad to guess who was playing Bowser and Jack Black was his second guess! It shows how much of a masterstroke that choice was; he's extremely funny, probably moreso than Chris Pratt!

Chris Pratt is less the issue as much as Hollywood and in this case, Illumination disregarding voice actors for any random, popular names. It's obnoxious and insulting to voice actors, who often are just better at the job than random regular actors. And also they don't make good movies, so I'm expecting very little.

That being said, Pratt was in the Lego movie doing voice acting before Marvel, and Jack Black practically is a voice actor as much as anything else, so they themselves are not the issue, And I also agree the Mario voice we know is not what I would want for a whole movie with dialogue. If anything, they're just a victim to how cynical this whole celebrity casting thing feels and how much of a self-parody it feels like. I could've made up this casting as a joke about nonsensical celebrity casting, and they're doing it as not a joke somehow.

Also tbh, one of the problems is that Mario is a very boring character much of the time. So any big name with a real personality attached to it is bewildering to even imagine how it will fit. While the other characters...mostly have characteristics that could be replicated by actors who are good at a thing.
