Why was “Mim Mim” given representation in Smash

Birdo
Waluigi
Geno/Mallow
Twink/Koopa Bros
Boo
Shy Guy
Cheep Cheep
Twinrova
Zant
Majora
Vaati
Impa
Leon S. Kennedy
Claire Redfield
Jill Valentine
Chris Redfield
Ada Wong
Albert Weaker
Barry Burton
Rebecca Chambers
Billy Coen
Piers Nivans

So many different characters that should have been in before “Mim Mim”
Because it is not only about representation but also about creating a compelling fighter that´s fun to play. Plus, as we´re talking about DLC, adding something new that wasn´t there before.

Golden Sun (+2 obviously) is my favourite game of all time. I would probably experience a mental breakdown if the series ever got revived. Dark Dawn was only decent...
I’m moving very slowing through cross code because I’m kinda waiting for the patch and finishing up Xenoblade DE.

just hit Bergen man this OST is fantastic love this towns track. Story hasn’t really took off yet but I assume it will.

Unfortunately the port has issues, yes. I am quite disappointed the game does not run in full screen too. As it stands, the original PC version is the definitive plattform.
Minor technical difficulties aside, it´s still CrossCode. Enjoy your time with it. The story will introduce some interesting twists and noteable highlights you can be looking forward to.

The soundtrack by Deniz Akbulut (yupp, that´s his name) is also great, you´re right. My personal favourite track is this one here, but you may want to hear it for the first time when playing the game. Up to you.

What do you mean it doesn't run in full screen?

EDIT: That song is an absolute banger.

it runs in like a boxed window when you boot it up ala Final Fantasy 7 on switch. But there is an option int he settings to make it full screen.
FF7 I half understand for aspect ratio reasons as it's an old game but that seems a curious choice for a modern game. Does it just stretch or is it a proper use of full screen?

Proper use of a full screen it looks like to me. The game looks beautiful. Really enjoying it other Thant the frame hiccups.. Though they have submitted the patch to Nintendo should be out any day now.

If i remember Ill post some screens later with the "full screen".

That'd be cool - it's one I'm on the fence about adding to my buy list.

That buy list currently comprises:
- Street Fighter Anniversary Collection (when the price is sane)
- Ni No Kuni
- Shovel Knight (double-dipping - have it on PC and it's awesome - just waiting for the right price)
- Bayonetta 2/3 (got 1)
- Zelda: Links Awakening (likely the next main purchase after paper mario turns up)
- Luigi's Mansion 3 (still unsure about this one)
- Mario Tennis
- Super Bomberman R
- Clubhouse Games
- Dragons Quest Builders 2
- Fire Emblem 3 Houses
- Journey To The Savage Planet
- Bubble Bobble 4 Friends
- Catherine Full Body (got the PC version - when the price is right I'll get the full version)
- Divinity: Original Sin 2 (got PC - will get in a sale)
- Road Redemption
- Untitled Goose Game
- Worms WMD

Damn I have a problem.

Ni No Kuni is a double dip for you too correct? I have it but I haven't started it yet. Clubhouse games is great I find myself playing a game or two of Yacht Dice or BIlliards online each night.


Bayonetta 2 is far superior to the first one.

Fire Emblem and LUigi are must haves for the system as you and I have discussed before :)

I do too.. Paper Mario will be my 106th game for the system..

I have Ni No Kuni 2 on Steam. Gorgeous looking game, decent fun too. Definitely the biggest temptations for me are Clubhouse and Links Awakening for me. My collection is only a couple of months old and is already ridiculous.

I love Three Houses but man, the academy fatigue is fucking real on your second playthrough with a different house.
That's the thing keeping me away from doing it, I did Edelgard first for obvious reasons but I've heard Dimitri is the real deal and that Claude might be the best route altogether. The only thing keeping me from that is the academy sections, which were fun for a single playthrough, but since I know I want to waifu perfectly legal Sothis it makes those bits even more pointless.

Was looking at Ghost of Tsushima earlier and it got me thinking...I really wish Nintendo had more developers and would do some sort of Samurai game.



The Mysterious Murasame Castle Reboot

They could use a lot of BOTW gameplay mechanics to make a new Mysterious Murasame Castle. I really liked a lot of the historical Japanese styling Nintendo brought out in BOTW. I think a more combat focused BOTW would work-let you unlock a handful of permanent weapons w/ different stats rather than a ton of weapons that break. Make combat more challenging, slower, and methodical waiting for parries, dodging-samurai film like. Dungeons/Beasts replaced with Castles/Towns to infiltrate. Layer in some of the FE Three Houses style drama-a wandering lone samurai traveling across the world BOTW style w/ the FE anime drama of kingdoms divided, warring factions with choices depending on which you choose.

That would be cool...

With Xenoblade DE out, I'm expecting MonolithSoft to reveal what they've been working on.
As for Golden Sun, I thought that the last game sold poorly and wasn't received very well with a cliffhanger ending. I'm surprised to hear that its something people want. I loved the first two, but never finished the third.

Never touched the DS one but those two are fantastic RPGs. The presentation blew me away as a kid. Nintendo seems pretty averse to rereleasing portables on the Switch but the MegaMan Zero/ZX Collection turned out really well.
Can you imagine if Konami wasn't full of assholes and gave us a GBA/DS Castlevania compilation game. hnnnnnnngggggggggg.

edit: Hell the GBA Castlevania games were in the top sellers portion of the Wii U VC shop, Aria was like a top ten.

Not in this timeline friend. Konami will sit on their legendary IPs and do nothing but terrible things with them :(

Sure, but personally that didn’t stop me from putting over 300 hours in to the game, I absolutely adored Three Houses.

NintendoGAF, ASSEMBLE! I need you all on duty tomorrow for the Paper Mario review thread. Be on the lookout for anyone who compares it to Sticker Star that we never saw here. We're the minority here on GAF, so let's be ruthless. Let's attack hard and often, hunt together as a team. FOR OUTRAGEOUS-SAMA!

No, serious, I'm legit PUMPED.

I think my copy is shipping soon - shopto has saved me so much in my Switch gaming.

In other news, in Odyssey I now have 290 moons and have just headed to the second extra world (how many are there?). This one seems a little more sparse - I’m on the first boss fight abs I reckon there’s probably 3 more afterwards - souped up broudal fight is actually quite fun. I know what I need to do but haven’t quite got there yet. There’s a LOT of game here!

Yeah I mean without spoiling anything if you didn’t already know the moon count you have way under half the moons in the game dude.

Paper Mario: The Origami King in two days...

I think I'm going to go with physical copy. Even if I have to wait to play the game. I haven't played a Paper Mario game since Super Paper Mario in like 2008 I want to say? It's been a very long time, since I missed Sticker Star and Color Splash

Can't wait to see what they have in mind. I really hope the overall game is as beautiful as the artstyle
