[03:17:16] <Aria> Hey Apsup
[03:17:20] <Aria> You're still up
[03:17:49] <Aria> You should sleep, because its late and such, but if you're not gonna, there's a Switch Nintendo Direct today
[03:17:56] <Aria> I bet that'll be worth watching
[03:18:14] <Aria> Maybe they'll show Simon and Bomberman in Smash
[03:18:20] <Aria> Probably not
[03:18:42] <Aria> Maybe they'll spoil the entirety of that new Zelda
[03:19:59] <Aria> That Saint Saiya game is 12 euro. I want it, but I know I'm only going to play it once
[03:25:03] <Apsup> I'm going to watch the Switch thing too. I'm curous.
[03:25:05] <Apsup> *curious
[03:25:23] <Aria> Expecting anything exciting?
[03:25:33] <Aria> 120 player F-Zero?
[03:25:48] <Apsup> Not really. I hope there is something surpricing and interesting.
[03:26:09] <Apsup> If it's just "here's the new mario and Zelda you already know about" I'll be angry.
[03:26:10] <Apsup> Not much.
[03:26:14] <Apsup> Just tiny bit angly.
[03:26:20] <Apsup> Or disapponinted.
[03:26:50] <Aria> What do you need? Mario, Zelda, and like, one other AAA game in established franchise?
[03:27:13] <Apsup> I need anything that makes me go "huh, didn't see that coming."
[03:27:13] <Aria> Or do you want like 3-4 new-new things, like that SMT #FE game
[03:27:59] <Aria> I guess I'm not expecting much
[03:28:46] <Aria> Also, I kinda wanna make a 10,000 racer F-Zero-like now
[03:28:53] <Aria> I wonder if that would work on modern computers
[03:29:34] <Apsup> I'm not sure if adding 10,000 pieces of visual clutter to ridiculously fast racing game is optimal.
[03:30:01] <Aria> Well, I was thinking you always have like 10 to maybe 100 cars on screen
[03:30:34] <Aria> And it wouldn't be-- as fast. It would be more Nascar and less F1
[03:31:15] <Aria> But like- still recognizably F-Zero. Yeah I dunno, I like the idea of being in the middle of a huge swarm
[03:31:25] <Apsup> F-Zero is supposed to be super fast though.
[03:31:37] <Aria> Definitely
[03:31:57] <Aria> But it's okay if it's easy but with a good sense of speed
[03:32:37] <Aria> The countdown on the stream stopped. But its still 30m, away, right?
[03:32:48] <Apsup> Jup, pre stream musics for next 30 minutes.
[03:32:57] <Aria> Great
[03:32:58] <Apsup> They are now live, probably setting stuff up.
[03:33:03] <Aria> Sure
[03:33:21] <Aria> I would be happy if they had another Platinum joint
[03:33:38] <Apsup> Platinum does anything with anyone these days, so totally possible.
[03:33:45] <Aria> Unlikely, given that Platinum has 3 announced games in production at the moment, and one more until recently
[03:33:45] <Apsup> Unless you mean, like really good one.
[03:36:11] <Aria> Have you seen Police Story?
[03:36:42] <Aria> We're watching them now (as in, this week, not right now)
[03:36:47] <Aria> They're pretty good
[03:36:52] <Aria> I liked 2 a lot
[03:37:00] <Apsup> You mean the jackie chan films?
[03:37:04] <Aria> Yeah
[03:37:37] <Apsup> Yea, I watched the first three some time ago.
[03:37:59] <Aria> I haven't seen further than that. Saw 3 today
[03:38:03] <Apsup> First and second are really good. Was not so into third one, probably that's why I haven't watched beyond it yet.
[03:39:01] <Apsup> First one is probably my favorite of the three.
[03:39:20] <Aria> I also was not too excited about 3
[03:39:29] <Apsup> It had great opening action, great ending action and the stuff between was ok.
[03:39:45] <Apsup> I think that rest of them didn't even have proper big opening action bits.
[03:39:47] <Aria> I like all the stupid humour
[03:39:49] <Apsup> If I remember correctly.
[03:39:58] <Aria> 3 certainly didn't
[03:40:13] <Aria> I think 2 had some stuff
[03:41:12] <Aria> I'll let you know if the remaining 5 movies are good
[03:44:28] <Aria> Is Dune good?
[03:44:36] <Apsup> movie or book?
[03:44:39] <Aria> Movie
[03:44:44] <Apsup> Also there might be two movies.
[03:44:59] <Aria> The first one good?
[03:44:59] <Apsup> I've not heard many good things.
[03:45:04] <Aria> I see
[03:48:44] <Aria> Are you watching Nintendo JP's youtube stream? Is there one specifically for Europe/the west?
[03:49:29] <Apsup> Just the one from Nintedo channel.
[03:52:46] -!- MrBRAD [MrBRAD!Brad@Clk-A415D40B.tpgi.com.au] has joined #geeknights
[03:58:55] <Aria> Ready to be amazed by the Nintendo thing, MrBRAD?
[03:59:15] <MrBRAD> are they announcing more stuff about it soon?
[04:00:39] <Aria> Maybe now?
[04:00:42] <Aria> Nintendo youtube channel
[04:00:45] <Aria> they started a live stream
[04:03:19] <MrBRAD> got it up now
[04:03:39] <Apsup> No euro price :[
[04:03:51] <Aria> no price sounds like 300
[04:03:53] <MrBRAD> so like $600 australian
[04:04:02] <Aria> Pretty much.
[04:04:03] <Apsup> Probably around 300€
[04:04:18] <Aria> It costs fucking money?!
[04:04:23] <Aria> Booo!
[04:04:24] <MrBRAD> gotta love euro=usd prices huh?
[04:04:50] <MrBRAD> if it gets as amazingly hacked as the 3ds i'll get one
[04:04:52] <Apsup> Well, exact euro to dollar price would be about 280, but it's close enough to 300
[04:05:05] <Apsup> Especially with taxes.
[04:05:12] <Aria> Smooth
[04:05:13] <Apsup> Which are higher here.
[04:06:40] <Apsup> "We were little too soon" could be Nintendo's catchphrase.
[04:07:23] <MrBRAD> inherit the 'you can pirate games by directly downloading from nintendo servers' and i am sold
[04:09:06] <Aria> Battle mode!
[04:09:12] <Aria> As in, with custom tracks
[04:09:39] <Apsup> 2.5 hours to 6 hours. That's kinda lacking.
[04:09:47] <MrBRAD> finally a usb cable charger, only took them their entire existence as a company
[04:09:58] <Aria> WiiU has USB charger
[04:10:01] <Aria> Mini USB that is
[04:10:07] <Aria> But close enough
[04:10:18] <MrBRAD> new 3ds still didnt
[04:11:28] <Apsup> Yes, we have told how the controllers work like ten times already. Start showing games.
[04:11:33] <Aria> Really wish those sticks were symmetrical
[04:12:11] <Aria> >.> Don't need a stupid share button
[04:12:26] <Aria> Could use that space for gamecube ports!
[04:13:38] <MrBRAD> 3rd party or 'classic' controllers are going to sell well
[04:14:09] <Apsup> Holy Shit! Colors!
[04:14:28] <MrBRAD> and STRAPS!
[04:15:47] <Apsup> "We decided to shove every gimmick in these things"
[04:16:55] <Aria> Red Steel 3?
[04:17:08] <Apsup> "Here's a game everyone can play together. Killing each other!"
[04:17:17] <Aria> I have this game for Oculus
[04:19:06] <Apsup> huh. Saw, a leak that mentioned minigame collection called 1-2-switch. But now I don't remember anything else from the leak.
[04:19:11] <MrBRAD> they feature the cool cowboy thing which is a vr thing that isnt actually how it plays out
[04:19:29] <MrBRAD> then flick through people wagglan and waving their arms around
[04:19:33] <MrBRAD> reality
[04:20:10] <MrBRAD> cool party game though
[04:20:11] <Aria> Actually, I'm kinda physced for this
[04:20:33] <Aria> psyched*
[04:20:49] <Apsup> "Take this outside, and then play it for three hours, untill battery runs out".
[04:21:21] <MrBRAD> nintendo branded powerbank when?
[04:21:35] <Aria> Isn't the thing between the controller that?
[04:21:46] <MrBRAD> i would love to know if it is or not
[04:21:56] <Apsup> I was thinking of the console itself.
[04:22:12] <MrBRAD> seems a wasted opportunity to just leave it an empty plastic box
[04:22:17] <Apsup> This looks goofy
[04:23:05] <Aria> Amazing*
[04:23:57] <Apsup> "We ran out of ideas with the names".
[04:24:24] <MrBRAD> we haven't had much practice with coming up with new names for new ips
[04:25:26] <MrBRAD> these characters are amputees
[04:25:35] <MrBRAD> That's XCOM baby!
[04:25:38] <Apsup> They are cyborgs.
[04:26:00] <Apsup> Maybe it's the kind of cyberpunk future where people rip off their arms willingly for sports.
[04:26:27] <MrBRAD> this looks sweet in action
[04:27:31] <MrBRAD> can you get a pair of blue or red or only 1 colour per side?
[04:28:54] <Apsup> "Hey, what's the one reason people still play WiiU" "uh, Splatoon I guess" "Great, let's make a Switch port, so they need to 'switch'."
[04:29:02] <MrBRAD> oooh nice
[04:29:14] <MrBRAD> brutal
[04:29:15] <Apsup> Translator is not into this.
[04:29:23] <MrBRAD> human forum
[04:29:31] <Apsup> "What the fuck... I'm reading..."
[04:30:35] <MrBRAD> i so hope those dual pistols can be aimed independently somehow, for some real john woo hit
[04:30:37] <MrBRAD> *shit
[04:30:50] <Aria> You should try Superhot VR
[04:31:19] <MrBRAD> yep, that's on the 'when i have vr' buy list
[04:32:03] <Aria> I mean... but Splatoon multiplayer us free on WiiU
[04:32:11] <Aria> I don't want to play for online
[04:32:16] <Aria> pay*
[04:32:27] <Apsup> That's the way things go these days.
[04:33:18] <Aria> Did Sega make this?
[04:33:26] <Apsup> Mario goes GTA?
[04:33:27] <MrBRAD> mario creed
[04:33:54] <Apsup> Why were the non Mario people normal height and propotions?
[04:34:27] <MrBRAD> skellington's confirmed
[04:35:19] <Apsup> Super Mario Minish Cap?
[04:35:33] <Aria> I'm confused?
[04:36:25] <Aria> ..So...
[04:36:29] <Aria> Particle hair
[04:36:56] <Aria> I mean, it's been baked
[04:37:07] <Aria> But still, someone added particle hair to Mario when making him
[04:37:58] <Apsup> So Nintendo is catching on the rest of the industry with the idea that people like big worlds.
[04:38:14] <Apsup> Or big areas to run it.
[04:38:36] <Aria> This is their third big world RPG in this franchise
[04:38:39] <Aria> Funded by Nintendo
[04:38:57] <Apsup> Well sure.
[04:39:04] <Apsup> Also, I guess I'm hype.
[04:39:09] <Apsup> I liked the first one.
[04:39:39] <Aria> I tolerated the first one, but I like the style of this one
[04:39:46] <Aria> Also I don't want FE Warriors
[04:39:56] <Aria> But I guess it doesn't hurt
[04:40:15] <Apsup> Xenoblade was way good.
[04:40:34] <Aria> That fucking jog cycle
[04:41:12] <Apsup> So fucking what? Who ever gives any fucks on how jog cycle looks. At least on any meaningful amount.
[04:41:31] <Aria> I do, they play for the entire game
[04:41:32] <Apsup> I was thinking on gameplay, story, music, such stuff.
[04:41:57] <Apsup> !!!!!!!
[04:41:59] <Apsup> !!!!!
[04:41:59] <Aria> Also this looks like its numbered SMT
[04:42:00] <Apsup> !!!!!!
[04:42:04] <Apsup> !!!!!!!!!
[04:42:08] <Apsup> Heee Hoo!
[04:42:47] <Apsup> Doesn't seem to be new Raido though, so I'm not fully hyped.
[04:43:14] <MrBRAD> i just had my brother call me and ruin my afternoon, whats this moon language trailer thing?
[04:43:55] <MrBRAD> those sprites with full lighting looks sweet
[04:44:03] <Aria> Yeah I liked it too
[04:44:12] <Aria> Everything so far has great style
[04:45:29] <MrBRAD> oh bugger off todd
[04:45:38] <Aria> ^
[04:45:46] <MrBRAD> don't believe his lies
[04:46:19] <MrBRAD> you too can do fight draugr over and over
[04:46:26] <MrBRAD> anywhere anytime
[04:46:31] <MrBRAD> purgatory
[04:46:33] <Aria> Not anywhere
[04:46:39] <Aria> Only in the one dungeon
[04:46:53] <Aria> But we put that dungeon all over the map, never more than 50m walk, don't worry
[04:47:31] <MrBRAD> NMH! Nice
[04:48:27] <Aria> Man this voice over
[04:48:28] <Aria> Holy shit
[04:49:28] <MrBRAD> oh no, this could be bad
[04:50:47] <MrBRAD> fifzzzzzzzzZZZZzzzzzz
[04:52:16] <MrBRAD> 'you can play our multiplayer pay2win scamgame on a mobile platform anywhere anytime, give us more money kthx'
[04:52:35] <MrBRAD> you hear about the big scandal involving their ingame purchases?
[04:52:51] <Aria> No, but I saw the Witcher guy praising them earlier today
[04:53:08] <Aria> About how they don't scam and earn crazy money by offering good value
[04:53:21] <MrBRAD> fifa itself is a different story
[04:53:27] <MrBRAD> ea have been quite good otherwise
[04:53:46] <Aria> He was talking about the micro transactions in Fifa specifically
[04:53:51] <MrBRAD> oh god
[04:53:55] <Aria> Video isn't from today, I saw it today. Ill link it later
[04:54:14] <MrBRAD> he's probably down the rabbit hole himself
[04:55:21] <MrBRAD> whats that thing called where you spend so much money on something you feel you cant' quit?
[04:55:41] <Aria> SUnken cost fallacy?
[04:55:49] <MrBRAD> yeeeeah that's it
[04:56:09] <MrBRAD> there's the pro controller
[04:59:26] <Aria> Smash 4 port is missing
[04:59:30] <Aria> With Konami characters
[05:03:50] <Aria> Walter made a joke I want to pass on. Calamity Ganon sounds like Guilty Gear guest character
[05:04:05] <Apsup> Right he is.
[05:04:29] <Apsup> New Zelda does look nice though.
[05:04:50] <Apsup> But we have been seeing so much of it already, so I'm kind "whatever" about this.
[05:05:24] <Aria> First time I see any of this
[05:05:30] <Aria> I'm pretty excite
[05:06:12] <Apsup> I think most of the time they have been demoing the first zone, so there was bunch of areas, characters and plot implications that were new and pretty excite, but still they have been pushing that one geme way hard.
[05:07:08] <Aria> Well that was exciting
[05:07:13] <Aria> Satisfied?
[05:08:42] <Apsup> Sufficently.
[05:09:05] <Apsup> Won't get it until it gets cheaper, but there was enough things to be curious about.
[05:09:41] <Apsup> new SMT and Xenoblade 2 were hot for me.
[05:10:30] <Aria> With the exception of Skyrim again, everything looked great. Especially that Zelda game holy shit
[05:10:44] <Aria> Kinda wish I had turned away during the trailer now, didn't expect it to be so good
[05:11:33] <Apsup> You forget about it by the time console releases.
[05:11:38] <Apsup> As long as you don't preorder.
[05:13:17] <Aria> Alright, time for sleep though
[05:13:22] <Aria> Have a good night you two
[05:13:24] <Apsup> night.
[05:13:35] <Aria> MrBRAD, was the presentation good? Since you didn't know about it ahead of time
[05:13:59] <MrBRAD> yeah, that was pretty cool
[05:15:15] <Aria> Right, good night
[05:15:27] <MrBRAD> gn

[16:02:40] <Aria> Morning
[16:05:07] <Bronz|work> Oh hi.
[16:05:11] <Bronz|work> How was your nap.
[16:05:31] <Aria> Parody Molyneux tweeted "Can't sleep, trying to come up with ideas for new game experiences where you can feel liquid and ice cubes in your controller"
[16:05:35] <Aria> Good, good
[16:06:19] <Bronz|work> Did the alarm go off?
[16:06:56] <Aria> Yeah, but I didn't get out of bed in time and fell asleep again
[16:07:24] <Bronz|work> That's not how alarms work...
[16:09:40] <Aria> People on my twitter are not happy with the Switch one bit
[16:15:40] <Aria> Inklings in new Mario Kart
[16:17:02] <Bronz|work> Oh ok.
[16:19:45] <Aria> You can buy Zelda and it comes with a prop sword
[16:50:01] <Aria> There's a new Bomberman
[16:58:47] <Bronz|work> Ugh, the next bus isn't for 40 minutes
[16:59:01] <Aria> You missed the bus 2 m before you even could?
[16:59:17] <Bronz|work> Well, next ACTUAL bus goes in 5 minutes
[16:59:21] <Bronz|work> I can't make that.
[17:06:07] <Aria> Did you make it/
