Sakurai is the gaming world's greatest troll. What a cruel man.

Have you tried lowering the resolution? This didn't eliminate the problem, but the little snags are far less frequent for me now.

I'm utterly puzzled by the fact that the game has no multiplayer. I'm still waiting to relive my Enemy Territory days. Somebody made the best multiplayer game ever in 2013, and a decade later we still don't have a proper follow up.

It just makes me sad is all. So I'm not buying it.

I received a Bulbasaur and a Squirtle, which were nice surprises. I put them back into wonder trade for someone else, though. My best trade was a Vivillon for a Gengar. I have yet to get some crazy level 50 pokemon.

Once I have a good variety of strong pokemon, I want to put them in and see what I get. Hopefully kids will get over flooding it with Bunnelby.

My teeth are almost grinded down completely sitting alone, waiting anxiously for the King Dedede announcement.

King DeDeDe will be in the game. Do not doubt.

Sonic is cool. I'm glad he's returning. It looks like his moveset will remain mostly the same, which is a big bummer, but I can't wait to pit he, Mario, and Sonic together. That's like, my childhood fantasy. As a matter of fact, my other favorite video game characters from my younger days were Crash and Snake, so if Snake returns... oh boy. I highly doubt we'll see Snake, unfortunately. And Crash is impossible, but my love of him faded long ago (my love for Mega Man WILL NEVER FADE).

Anyways, Mega Man looks fantastic and that is all I have ever really wanted in life.

I'm jumping in to the middle of a conversation here, but I couldn't finish Fire Emblem: Awakening because the characters are so awful. Therefore, I wouldn't say that I'm a fan of Intelligent Systems writing. Alpha Dream, on the other hand, are among the best in the industry.

Really? What did you find awful about them? I thought that characters in Awakening were great. Not my favorite cast of characters, but I have my favorites, and I love the call-backs to the older games.

Nostalgia isn't a factor for me, as this is only the third FE game I've played. I wouldn't have recognized throwbacks, so take that in to account.

My big problem was how typical the characters are. Chrom is incredibly boring. He's so trusting and loyal and brave and... blech. He was basically Sigurd all over again (FE 4 is one of the games I've played). As far as I saw, he didn't have any depth. The same can be said about the avatar. He's just mysterious and awesomely boring.

Everyone else is exploited for one or two attributes. Sumia was a klutzy cook. Frederick was loyal to the crown. Vaike is a bro. Lon'qu is afraid of girls. Miriel uses big words. None of it was subtle, and it became irritating with time.

GUYS MEGA MAN.

At first, when I heard about Fit Girl, I was disgusted. But it IS pretty hilarious. I love how Sakurai basically says in that one video that no one wanted this character in the game. Sakurai is the world's #1 troll.

First, I think many of us saw this coming. I wasn't certain (none of us were) but I had a feeling.

My initial reaction? Anger. This is an action game. I WANT A JRPG. Final Fantasy games are JRPGs. This looks like it fits somewhere between Kingdom Hearts and Devil May Cry.

But, then I opened my heart. The artwork really helps. I can't put my finger on it, but it just looks more like Final Fantasy than XIII. It takes me back to Nomura's best days, designing VII, VIII, and X. In particular, this game reminds me of VIII, which is probably my favorite game in the series. When it looks the part, how can I complain.

I can't wait to play this. Nothing will stop me from finishing it, the same way that boredom couldn't stop me from finishing XIII.

What evil spell have you cast on me Square?

Anyways, how are you all feeling?
