    If you're on the fence on physical vs. digital for Smash Bros., Nintendo's giving double gold points when you pre-purchase digital, which also applies to the $25 DLC package. So that means you'll get about $8.50 in points.

    Whatever you do, don't stop playing and then wait for months before doing the DLC. The Champion's Ballad stuff has what has to be the most hostile possible start for people who haven't played in a while.

    Yeah that was a bit of a bastard to pick up after a break. At least the trials start pretty forgiving and ramp up.

    Just picked up Doom at walmart for 12 bucks. I don't normally do black friday stuff, but saw the deal on my phone and decided to stop by on my way home from dinner at my mother in laws. Store was crazy, but picking up the game and checking out was pretty painless! Apparently they have Diablo for 17, but they were sold out at mine.

    Picked up Bayonetta 2 on a Black Friday sale; had no idea the cart came with a free download of the first game (which I also haven’t played)

    $12!? I have been wanting to get Doom for some time. I'm sure they're probably all gone by now, though. I don't really have any funds to spare until after Christmas anyway.

    It's worth it to download the DLC as soon as possible, because all of the armor they added is more useful the earlier you get it. They don't really do anything other armor doesn't and they can't be upgraded, so their defensive stats are pretty weak. But they're free and fairly easy to get, and can be gotten the moment your feet leave the plateau.

    Huh, I thought that Toki remake was vaporware for sure, but apparently it's scheduled to release on the 4th. Wonder if they're still doing Joe and Mac.

    Finally got around to checking out the NES games for this month.

    Gradius - Start at level 5 with all the upgrades just seems... dumb?

    Metroid is still pretty good to me, just wandering around shooting bugs and somehow stumbling into finishing the game.

    Mighty Bomb Jack is so weird. Like Solomon’s Key I feel like there’s a lot more going on here than it looks like in terms of how all the systems interact, simple as they are.

    TwinBee is fine. Curious what they’ll bring out for December.

    Wario's Woods, Ninja Gaiden, and Adventures of Lolo!

    That's the last of the games we know are coming at this moment. I would guess they'll announce at least 3 months' worth at the end of December.

    Almost time for Smashmas. I'm picking up a Pro Controller in preparation. Kinda wanted one anyway since my Joy Cons are a bit wonky. I'll probably get some new Cons later.

    Camilla being on that list is extremely disappointing. Not surprising, but clearly there because of her character design. So many better characters should have been in her place. Like Lyn should be WAY in front of her.

    I'm actually a little shocked that Mario placed so high. I figured he was the type of character that everyone likes but few people love, "nobody's favorite", etc. Especially since it's been a while since any Mario RPGs.

    I still say Undyne or Papyrus would make a much better Smash rep for Undertale.

    Sans would be much better as an Assist Trophy. He'd basically be Goldeen - come in, see what's happening, shrug, and take a nap :P.

    Well Fortnite and Warframe are options if either of those appeal to you. And Octopath and Valkyria Chronicles have substantial demos that transfer progress to the main game.

    Wait, Ocarina of Time is twenty years old?



    I've been getting more and more "Oh God, I'm getting old" moments, but this one hits hard. Ocarina of Time feels much more... recent, somehow. Maybe it's because it left a vivid impression.

    1998 was such awesome year for games. StarCraft AND Brood wars, half-life, grim fandango, fallout 2, baldurs gate, thief, Zelda oot, metal gear solid.... And a bunch more!

    Xenogears, FFT (in North America)... If there are Hall of Fame years for gaming, 1998 is a first ballot entry.

    If you're a US Square fan there really isn't a better year than 1998.

    FFT
    Saga Frontier
    Einhander
    Parasite Eve
    Xenogears
    Brave Fencer Musashi

    all in the same year.

    As a fan of some occasional cheesecake, I thought I'd look her up real quick. I thought "How bad could she be? A lot of folks on PA seem to be a bit sensitive to this stuff. Oh yeah, that's super blatant. Is Fire Emblem a porn game? Is Nintendo getting into porn games?"

    Also, I looked up Lyn too. Looks like she was in one mainline FE game 15 years ago. Did you really expect her to do well in a fan poll in 2018?

    But at the end of the day, Kirby is number 1, so the entire list is clearly suspect.

    I like Camilla in the game. She's fully aware of her assets and happy to make use of them. Seeing as all the Nohr nobles are a bit twisted, it works.

    I dislike the way Camilla is treated as a set of inflatable boobs outside of the game.

    The first time I played FE:Fates (with a male custom avatar) Camilla just creeped me out. She's presented as my sister, and is being super sexual towards me. And you can marry her! Ugh. I ended up not using most of the royals.

    Then I replayed it as female Corrin, and suddenly the exact same stuff gets re-contextualised as a (psychotically) over-protective older sister teasing Corrin. And it worked! So I actually used Camilla a lot, and some of her support conversations bring out a... not great, but solid character. (Like the stuff with the Nohrian Royals all being half siblings (all but Xander are legitimised bastards) and the only ones to survive the various assassinations and plots of their mothers, bringing them all together. It also explains why they treat Corrin as a sibling while apparently being unaware that she was stolen from Hoshido: they're used to finding out that King Garon had another kid pocketed away. That stuff probably should have not been buried in unlockable content.)

    Camilla is actually a pretty interesting character. She's not my favorite character in Fates, but she's pretty cool (and pretty useful in Conquest, at least in the early game). And even if people voted for her because they think she's sexy - what's wrong with that?

    Lyn is awesome and deserves popularity. She was in the first localized Fire Emblem game for the US so I suppose that has nothing to do with Japanese popularity, but still she's just a great design and great character with really nice music the first time you meet her.

    How do I pick where I want a game to download to? I want to download Warframe to the system memory instead of the SD card, but I can't find an option to do so. Do I have to pop out the card first so there's no other option?

    Annoyingly you can't. The only option is what you said, just pop out the SD card. Once the download has started you can put it back in.

    The really weird and annoying thing though is if it downloaded any patches in the future, then those would go to the SD card if it's in at the time. I have a bunch of games in this weird half-and-half setup. XB2 is 13g on the system memory, and the expansion data is 3g on the SD card. Honestly though I've never noticed anything funny performance wise. The only reason to give a shit is if you're OCD and want all the relevant data to be together for some crazy reason.

    It would be really nice to be able to transfer stuff from the system to the card and back, for no other reason than to free up system room. At the same time, I remember speed tests were done between the system memory and various SD cards to see if loading speeds were affected, and I think the answer was "Ehhhh not drastically enough to really care".

    And since it's warframe, it'll have a ton of patches as they fix things, add new content, etc. Honestly I wouldn't worry about it if you wanted to install to system memory because of load times. I installed to SD card, and have had zero issues and load time seems fine to me.

    She's also memorable for being in the first(and only) self-insert Fire Emblem ever made prior to Awakening, so she was the waifu before all the other waifus. (There's also a neat easter egg in Awakening where she'll recognize your character as the same protagonist from the previous game.)

    The fact that you couldn't marry her in either game is high treason.
