    I don't know why I'm so onboard with Transistor

    I don't really know anything about it and didn't really like Bastion

    Probably just the visual style

    For me its the art style, interesting-ish story hook, and it being pseudo turn based.

    Yeah, all of this is good. Also, and I'm going to be honest here, I want more female protagonists.

    All of the best Kirby games (besides Superstar) aren't even Kirby games.

    Canvas Curse
    Dream Course
    Air Ride

    motherfucking Pinball Land

    Man, I had a brain fart and got Hydra and Cobra mixed up in my head.

    And now I'm dreaming of a Cobra! button that has the o stretched out so far that report ends up on the right side of the screen.

    I just heard about this DLC plan for Mario Golf on 3DS

    $15 for a season pass which literally doubles the content of the main game

    New characters as well

    So down, especially since Mario Golf was only $30 for pre-order on Amazon a couple months back

    My personal experience is that Skylanders is still more popular than Infinity, the whole toybox-only and playset-specific characters gets too confusing for parents. Disney Infinity 2 needs to remedy that - I get that they wanted to personalise each level pack to fit the appropriate characters, but with the exception of Cars I don't see why Wreck It Ralph and Woody et al can't fight in Incredibles stages and what have you. And so many people get deflated when they learn that Toybox exclusives like Ralph and Elsa can't be used in anything else.

    Ralph not getting a playset did kind of ruin that game for me, honestly.

    My problem with both of the games is that the figures don't move. If they had articulation and were removable from the base so you could have sweet real world adventures, I'd be all over that shit.

    I played the shit out of skylanders 1 with my girlfriend, and loved it

    Unfortunately they made the decision to gimp previous generation figures in new games, so you basically need to go balls deep every year to get the figures required to unlock everything, and I already spent like 180 bucks once, I'm not doing it every year

    You know what Kirby game doesn't get nearly enough love

    Dreamland 3

    It wasn't as big as superstar but it had a gorgeous art style

    I bought dreamland 3 when I got a snes after never playing it as a kid

    That's a great game

    As opposed to Kirby's adventure which I also bought, and besides being gorgeous for a NES game is kind of terrible

    TRIPLE POOOOOST

    I got to like, chapter 10 last night in FE which is nearly where I was before on Classic, in like 1/3 of the time and I'm having way more fun

    Thanks to Trippy for getting me to try restarting

    I played it at pax east and I was gonna ask what the heck you were talking about but then I watched the reveal trailer and yeah her run animation used to be kinda out of place but it was way way better at pax east

    here is the reveal trailer for reference, in combat she has a very bouncy weightless gait
    here is the pax east footage and she now actually runs like she's carrying an enormously heavy sword (early game spoilers for anybody wanting to go in completely blind, just skip to 1:10 to see the new run animation)
    super hype for transistor you guys

    the hypest

    I don't have the Skylanders games but I've bought some of the figurines that look cool. Like, I was definitely going to get me a Thumpback and a Magna Charge.

    My favorite is still and will always be Terrafin, because he is literally a street shark except he sings a little song when he's underground

    The art, the music, and the combat were all awesome when I tried it

    And what little of the skill upgrade/customization system that was in the version playable at east was super fucking cool

    Turtle Rock has released 50 minutes of pure gameplay of Evolve

    with, uh, eSports style commentary on it...

    Thank god you can turn the commentary off

    Also I dunno about that game... Shooting at something for like 5 minutes doesn't seem like a super good time

    One quick FE question: How do you get relationship/support with healers? It seems to go extremely slowly even if I intentionally get a guy hurt and then heal him

    just have the characters whose support you want to increase be standing stand next to each other when you end your turn

    no other interaction between them is required

    so if chrom is surrounded by frederick, sully, lissa, the avatar, and is carrying mirabelle his support with all 5 of them will be increasing each turn

    I'm not sure if mirabelles' support with the four surround units would go up but it doesn't really matter

    Wait really? But they don't get a little heart when that happens, only when she heals someone

    hmm no okay I am wrong I guess, stuck in the FE7 mindset where it was just turns

    how do I copy a chart

    fuck it go here http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/Support and scroll down to the awakening thing if you want to see what actions give what amount of support

    sorry chincy I am a liar, now I'm not sure how I managed to get all the supports to go the way I wanted, I guess I just paired units up and had them fight a bunch

    You get support every time you do something, with everyone you are next to. Next to 3 others with someone paired up with you? Support with all 4 for killing that dude next to you.

    I double checked, with healers you only get support with the person you healed specifically

    I was pretty sleepy so I could be wrong but it was something I noticed that seemed frustrating, I have some S ranks already but my healers don't even have Cs

    Yeah healing is just you and the healed person, but if the person next to your healer kills something they get support with the healer.

    I paired my healers up a lot to get them support.

    The best way to get support is always always always to fight with them paired up

    You get support points in fights just form the stat bonuses that the pair-up confers, I think

    Being paired up counts as being next to each other for the purpose of support, basically.

    According to the Steam store page, Dark Souls II will unlock in "approximately eight hours".

    Is this a reliable estimate or a cruel joke at my expense?
