The folks at NeoGAF created some fake magazine ads for Madworld and apprantly Platinum Games saw them, showed them to Madworld's director, he picked his 10 favourites and now those lucky 10 are getting Madworld "Caution Sign" T-Shirts (very rare edition!)

so its 2 weeks later, and I picked this bad boy up and put an hour or so into it. And to put it lightly, its fucking nuts. I spent the whole time playing it grinning from maniacal ear to maniacal ear.
i managed to avoid everything about this game, and going into it without knowing anything about it i would think just makes it so much better. so i'll just skip ahead and say buy it. buy it buy it buy it. buy the damn thing. i dunno if it is everywhere else, but its a budget title here. and even having only played for an hour i'd say my $65 was definitely worth it.
now if you want some more random thoughts / impressions...
i mean, come on, you can slam a trash can over someone, then impale them in the head with a street sign, then throw them into a dumpster and watch them get sliced in half... whats not to love?
controls are good. a little clunky to start with, maybe, but in a bizarre turn of events the waggle here is actual satisfying - impaling someone with a street sign wouldn't be nearly as fun if you just had to push a button to do it.
the style this game oozes (like blood) is amazing. the comic styling, the contrast between black and white and that sweet sweet blood... brilliant. Not only that, but the character designs are great - I'm loving the pimp dude and his scary looking bitch.
but even better is the sound. the game is hilariously awesome. and with john dimaggio (bender baby please insert liquor) and greg proops (of whose line is it anyway and a bunch of roles in other shit) as a couple of wisecracking smartarse commentators how could it not be?
just buy this damn thing. come on. you know you want to
Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.

nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?

nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.

nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?

Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.

Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.

Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.
