Apparently the games only run in 720p at 30fps... in docked mode. Pretty disappointing; most Switch games run at 900p or higher.

Did they really make a Gigantamax Meowth that's literally just Longcat? Never thought I'd be using a Longcat reference in 2019...

Bought Super Mario Maker 2 recently. I've been enjoying the Story Mode--professionally-made Mario levels are a timeless treat--but I haven't found a ton of enjoyment out of user-made levels yet. Apparently there's a way to filter levels by type; I'm hoping to figure that out soon so I can play more traditional levels. I don't have much interest in the level editor myself, but maybe I'll play around with that at some point.

Also getting deep back into Minecraft. Building a new village.

Had a dream today that I was back in middle school, but I wasn't in the middle school that I went to as a child; instead, I was at a middle school about 15 minutes down the road. One of my friend's moms was my math teacher, and the school itself was way nicer overall than the one I actually went to. Sitting next to my former middle/high school crush in the dream was weird, too--even though I kind of hate her guts now, she's still popping up in my dreams. Odd.

Also was on oddly vivid dream. The environment was really well-developed and I remembered and vividly dreamt about people that I hadn't actually seen in years.

Honestly, even though Super Mystery Dungeon wasn't my favorite Mystery Dungeon game (Explorers of ____ was way better imo), it's still a solid game overall. Great replay value and there's tons to do even after you finish the core game. It's a shame I don't play my 3DS much anymore ever since the Switch game out, though. There's some great games (like Mystery Dungeon) that I'd like developers to bring over to the Switch.

bring Mega Evolutions back!

Let's bring Pokemon back.
That should probably be higher on the priority list, I agree!

I still think they should have left in Mega-Evolution as a constant mechanic in all the games going forward starting with Gen 6. It was such a cool mechanic and breathed life into old Pokemon that had fallen from relevance in the meta, and gave them pretty cool new designs too. Gen 7 gave us Z-moves which were definitely less cool, but still cool in a vacuum; Gen 8 gives us Dynamaxing which essentially combines the two? But rather than give us cool new designs (a la Mega Evolutions), we just get blown-up versions of existing Pokemon. Pretty lame by comparison--bring Mega Evolutions back!

Touche. Don't know what I was thinking.

Honestly I kind of understand that mechanic if you're not playing in any one, long, continuous session. It's probably intended so that players can leave their system in sleep mode overnight and wake up to more SP. But having that method (or paying) be the only way a player can gain more SP is really poor game design imo.

Darn, after seeing R'duckulus I like that design a lot better. :(

I'm really hopeful that they'll continue the trend of evolving older Pokemon besides just Farfetch'd in this game. I don't want new Mega-evolutions or new region-specific variants--entirely new evolutions would be great to breathe life into otherwise-dead Pokemon (looking at you, Dunsparce).

Not sure if I remember you or not--vaguely remember a "spoink" but I'm not sure given how long its been since I've been on this board.
Regardless though, welcome back! Look forward to seeing what you have to contribute.

I've been MIA recently because I was busy putting the finishing touches on Port Priority 5, a Super Smash Bros Ultimate major held in my city. I was the event director for this event (I founded the series), and it was really cool to see us get 455 total entrants, along with players from across the country!

We broke 10,000 viewers on Twitch, had top casters such as EE and TKBreezy on our stream (weird for me to see given that I started my stream from my college dorm room), and had a boatload of top players out. I'm happy and that's a significant stressor off my plate :) Excited to see how the event grows in the future.

Gonna start on Wolfenstein: Youngblood later today. I played through Wolfenstein 2 last summer and really enjoyed it; love the alternate reality aspects and the world the game offers. We'll see how it goes!

it sucked oh god

The reason why I enjoyed Wolfenstein 2 was because of its story elements and worldbuilding. The story in Youngblood and characters are really... bland... by comparison. The entire game is co-op and, while your partner AI is actually pretty good, the game has a leveling system where enemies have assigned levels rather than just being baseline stronger or weaker based on their enemy type. In theory, it's a good change, but any enemy that's a higher level than you ends up just becoming a massive bullet sponge, while any enemy at a lower level then you ends up just dying instantly. It makes the game feel really unbalanced and unrewarding of actual quality combat.

Meh.

Sirfetch'd looks pretty cool. I wonder if Pokemon Shield will get an exclusive evolution, too?

I'm very curious to see if they'll even keep him around in the anime anymore considering he's won a league championship. With Sword and Shield taking the franchise in a new direction (no more National Dex, different location geographically), I wonder if they'll do a full-scale reboot of the anime series, as well?
