Well, it’s nearly time for Nintendo to announce the NX! And you know what that means right?
Yep, like with the Nintendo Directs and E3 before, it’s time for a new liveblog!
And everything NX related will be covered here. Does the trailer show the console hardware? Then we’ll talk about it. Is it a hybrid? That’ll be discussed too. Same with any games or other miscellaneous announcements too.
Here’s the video showing the console in action:
As you can see, it’s called the Nintendo Switch. It’s a hybrid console which can be used at home or out and about, and seems to have Splatoon and Mario Kart 8 on it.
So what did you think? Was the announcement what you expected?
It’s finally happening! After tons of rumours and ‘leaks’, speculation over every little thing and back and forth arguments between the ‘powerhouse’ and ‘hybrid’ camps, the Nintendo NX is finally being revealed tonight!
Here’s the announcement about it straight from Nintendo of America:
As you can see, it’s gonna be in the form of a short video rather than a full presentation or Nintendo Direct. So it’s unlikely a whole list of games will be revealed for the system, and even more unlikely they’ll go into too much detail about it. Instead, we’ll probably get a name, a few pictures of the system and (maybe) a short clip of a game for it. Like the new 3D Mario title on NX some people expect to see.
But hey, it’ll still kill off a lot of rumours. Like the ones about the NX being a hybrid home console/handheld in one. Or anything related to the design in general.
So yeah, the NX will be revealed tonight at 7am PT/10am ET. Or 3PM UK time, if you don’t live in America. Let’s see if it lives up to people’s expectations for the console!
Dear Google Inc. and Googlers,
This is an important service announcement concerning the future of your business. Just keep in mind I have never seen The Internship or any other movie interpretations of huge tech company leaders like Steve Jobs, Edward Snowden (the NSA is a tech company right?), and Mark Zuckerberg which may be interpreted to the world audience as propaganda to join the fight for industrialization. That is not what this Earth needs right now. Right now this Earth needs a Boy Scout who has never been to Law School, has no interest in Common Core, and is at least a Life Rank Scout in order to participate in this action. I propose that you put more support in people, rather than algorithms that you could’ve let Satoru Iwata fix with his computer wizard knowledge but didn’t find opportunity in before he went to The Good Place. The truth is that social media has become the new “cult-forming creature” in our world today. In order to discipline this “creature” you must first be a human being. Then you must become a popular independent Youtube gamer that backs you up in times of trouble. No. I’m being literally serious.
The Gamergate War College
Exhibit A- The Core Of The Internet
I know how discretion works, just to make sure you weren’t my conservative gun-toting father who has a militia leading, conspiracy theorist brother who lived the 70s. The idea I’m going with is to go “old school Gamersgate” on the world’s a** and set the world to the same standard (with mild differences because of population but never because of politics because the UN has your back). No matter what your plan is I’ll support you with cold-hard evidence called “I can debunk Steven Hawkings” and “Quantum Physics is the New Religion” which are books I never plan to publish but I’m patenting the names in quotes.
Exhibit B- The True Hardiness Of Youtuber and Youtuber Communities (an hour in it gets into details)
There’s going to be competition, Youtube or should I call you LuciTube (broadcast your demonic desires), which is short for Lucifer Tube. Without a proper business model for Youtube all you are doing is playing God and eliminating free will from a select few Youtubers who gladly report the problem so that’s why it should be renamed LuciTube. Your algorithms are obsolete and your desire for money is your weakness. Money is the illusion of quality in the free market. Volunteer work from select people (from select US prisons Suicide Squad style) is going to be your advantage. Inception is a terrible religion by the way (I like your Google Talks video on it though) as the average person who hasn’t had a near-death experience doesn’t believe in a religion anyways. You need a voice, not a spoiled rich-white-kid-turned-Socialist-comedian and then put on Late Night Entertainment Talk Shows that knows you really well. I would pray for you but not now since you like to rape people with Youtube Music (there’s plenty of download Youtube video sites for people to get music legally btw).
Exhibit C- The Rebrick Contest Results (You Need Bricks For Brains To Win Here)
This is just something personal but I’m thankful for my time observing how Rebrick works. It was as humbling as doing missionary work in Haiti. The Internet is full of great people and it’s the closest the average child can get to meeting a huge business team member and then being disappointed because the politics ironically never match the thesis of The Lego Movie and that thesis was that anyone can become a Lego child prodigy as long as their parents hate their biological children to death and collect a lot of Lego *dramatization*. However I was only interested in meeting the people that work at Lego who design the sets and actually working there, granted Mr. Likus was with me. The prizes for the Makuta contest were great I know and I’m grateful for the results to come out (with intentions I’ll only win the artbook because I made a huge model named “Giga Makuta” to fit the Makuta theme but I never wanted to publicized my photos (and instructions) until after the contest was over until now because it’s postponed and was agreed on for the announcements be made public this Friday AND Likus is my sibling so he might as well get all the Lego Sets from the G2 Bionicle line and we could share them but I still desire the artbook being the artistic Artisan I am who only desires the book for further inspiration for extending the roots of the Bionicle series and to an extent publish games for Nintendo systems with the Bionicle IP). Have any doubts in your mind now about me?
Exhibit D- Once a Scout, Always a Scout
A Scout is:
The user of proper grammaticalness [wording was intentional].
And keep in mind each point in the Scout Law is not (and never will be) like a Wikipedia reference where each reference writer’s opinions contradict someone else’s opinions. These are raw statements of the true definition of Justice in any part of the world or beyond. Do I abide by this law? That is a matter of perspective, but I say yes. No, Debbie Stabenow has yet to respond to my criticization of the CBS World News and the Bush administration and I never got anything in return but proved I did it and got Citizenship in the Nation (a merit badge, which is like an achievement to you Xbox gamers). Those crooked state representatives who never listen to juveniles but claim to be Democrats.
Exhibit E- RedLetterMedia’s review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens
The video is self-explanatory. I have no comments I’d like to make over it other than the underlying plot with alter ego Mr. Plinkett, and RedLetterMedia contributors who played George Lucas, and J.J. Abrams is completely satirical and represents a metaphor of the contemporary internet culture. Please watch the whole thing and God forbid your innocent eyes understand. Oh yeah and Mr. Plinkett likes to use foreign words for mass influence.
Makuta wants globalist Democrats in the Shadow Realm and the situational irony is that they have political experience.
Thank you for taking your time to read this (and supporting the views of my references), I’ll pray for you upon request, and as always have a phantasmagorical day! o/
Ever since Ultra Beasts were first announced for Pokemon Sun and Moon, people have debated whether they can be caught. Some said their descriptions and designs were too Pokemon like not to be catchable. That their descriptions sounded like Pokedex entries. And that their roles in the game seem to mirror those of normal legendaries.
So these people thought yes, they were catchable.
Others on the other hand were skeptical. They stated that they didn’t like Pokemon. Or were fusions of Pokemon and humans, and hence not catchable.
And so these guys thought they’d act as typical JRPG bosses. Like say, the Bittercold in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon or Dark Rust in Pokemon Rumble.
Well, it turns out the first group was right. Why? Because Nintendo has confirmed to Polygon that yes, Ultra Beasts will be catchable in Pokemon Sun and Moon.
Now admittedly, this wasn’t exactly a huge leap to make even before the confirmation. After all, the recent demo leaks show shiny forms for all eight Ultra Beasts, as well as what seem to be Pokedex pictures. It also seems like they’re listed just before Lunaala in the Pokemon data, something which would be unlikely if they weren’t counted as actual Pokemon.
But hey, it’s nice to have official confirmation here. Means we can start planning which Ultra Beast to include in our Pokemon teams!
Pokemon Sun and Moon’s Ultra Beasts are Yours for the Taking
Ever since that picture of the Rockstar logo on a red background went up, people have predicted it was for a Red Dead Redemption sequel. With the next image (showing cowboy silhouettes on a similar background), this was virtually confirmed.
And now, it seems Rockstar has finally come out and admitted it outright. Red Dead Redemption 2 is in development, and will be released on PS4 and Xbox One in August 2017. Here’s the announcement from their Twitter feed:
As well as their website’s page for the game:
Red Dead Redemption 2 – Rockstar Official Site
So yeah, it’s definitely happening now. But that’s not all.
Oh no, they’ve also announced when the first trailer will be posted as well! It’ll be online on October 20th at 11:00 AM Eastern Time. Or 4PM GMT for those who care. Either way, you’ll be able to see the game in action very soon.
But what do you think about all this? Can Red Dead Redemption do as well as the original? Or even make the series as popular as GTA?
