That is true. Back when they announced the Wii U, people were thinking it was just a peripheral for the Wii. By the time everyone figured it out, the magic was gone. They never quite washed the bad taste of the first impression out of everyone's mouths.

Everyone knows what a Switch is. It also helps that Breath of the Wild is a killer launch title. I don't think any system has ever come out the gate with a game as fully-realized, desirable and innovative as that one. Not since Mario World, at least.

Different strokes, I am absolutely not interested in BotW. Zelda games are just not fun for me. FE:W is much more my speed

What a time to be alive. The real question is if Bowser has a penis; I must know if the fanfic writers have been correct all along!

It's good to know that even though he's no longer officially a plumber, he can still lay some pipe.  :rimshot:

Came to this thread to post this. They have had this table near me for a little while now. I’m very surprised they got the right to do such a new table. It’s pretty fun, just very hectic. The slope is also really steep, feels even steeper in person. So not my favorite table, but it’s still cool.

If they did Ghost Busters, I wonder if that means they will get to do The Big Labowski, which is a better table in my opinion.

They were supposed to be doing this table for Stern Pinball Arcade. They've had the rights to it for about a year. However SPA ended up being a disaster. There are only three tables for it, Star Trek is flat out broken, and it hasn't been updated in forever. My guess is that they had the rights to this, and it was half finished already, and they decided "Screw it, we're just going to do this for Pinball Arcade and not tell anybody about it."

But it's kind of a gyp for people who bought the table pack for SPA way back in December, with the promise that the next table they were doing would be Ghostbusters, and then 10 months later, it shows up on PA instead of SPA.

Holy crap, Nioh is coming to PC!

This was announced October 2, but I only just today heard about it today.  Apparently they've been working on this for a while, without telling anyone, cause the release date is Nov 7th.

Now if we could just get Bloodborne...

I'm a bit late, but the first video streaming service has made it to the Nintendo Switch and it's not Netflix or YouTube. It's Hulu.

Latest Feh Channel. Omigosh, I'm so effing hyped, you have no idea.

Things that we're getting:
-4 New Heroes from the Choose Your Legend event: Joshua, Mia, Lute, Dorcas, Mia, Lute, and Dorcas will be in a banner tonight, Joshua is a Tempest Trials Reward.
-Staves are getting + forms for both attacking AND healing, so they're going to be viable outside of Wrathful Staff inheritance.
-Weapon Refinery which allows you to boost weapons, both preferred and normal weapons. One of the examples was Ephraim's Seigmund gaining the ability to provide an automatic counter at high HP, provided he can hit the enemy
-New Banner starting on the 27th that has several 11 separate 5* Focus units, 4 of which are Bridal Cordelia, Bridal Caeda, Spring Camilla, and Spring Xander, event exclusive units. There will also be no 5* drops OTHER than the focus units while the banner is active
-Book II of the story mode
-Free 5* Unit, Fjorm, who is another character from the Heroes world after completing chapter 1 of Book II

There are a couple of other things, but these are the big ones. I've not been this hyped for a mobile game in a long time. Boosting Staves is really cool, because hopefully it will provide an option for there to be more support oriented builds. There are a few heroes that are supportive in a way, but they have a primary role outside of support. Really looking forward to all of this. If you've not given Heroes a try, it's a lot of fun.
