Unfortunately, my heart is set on Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom (and that should be quite obvious ), which launches on the same day, but I think that this game is shaping up to be an excellent game in its own right, and I will definitely be picking it up down the road.
The sad thing is that it is true. However, with luck, the fans of the original will hop on it at launch, and UBI did do a fine job of advertising it this go-around. We'll have to see. I hope it does well.

I thought the same thing about Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles. The original game apparently sold very well, so I figured it had a built-in audience. The sequel clearly had a bigger budget and more development time. Capcom did a pretty good job with hype and advertising. (Didn't you guys see this genuinely impressive, highly innovative, fourth-wall-breaking, interactive trailer?!? Darned if that doesn't make you want to run out and buy the game on the spot!) And what happened? The game was DOA.
Of course, you could blame the fact that Capcom launched it against New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
The original No More Heroes didn't sell so great even if it did get a sequel, and at this point, I'd be surprised if the sequel even came anywhere close to sales of the original.
And as we've already mentioned, it's launching against Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom.
On the other hand, TvC has a pretty good chance of flopping, too.
Well, in all honesty, both games are against Mass Effect 2. XD
Depsite that, I hope that both games do well. TvC's arcade stick is already sold out at Gamestop, so I consider that to be positive. Another statement of honesty - I'd like to think Capcom knows that they've got a bit of a dark horse on their hands, and have been really pushing a lot of bonuses if the game manages to not flop. I'd bet most people, even some anime fanatics, are a little in the dark about several of Tatsunoko's characters, and this is likely going to be a first exposure for a lot of gamers. If it wasn't a Vs. title, I'd be way more concerned.
And I really hope that NMH:DS does well, too. It really looks like a lot of fun, but I can't afford two new games right now. Well, wait...maybe if it's at Target on Tuesday I can. I do have a $40 gift card...
Nester the Lark: Hello, NinDB world! Post your shouts here! (But be careful not to wake the neighbors. )

nocturnal YL: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)

nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!

Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?
Jul 24, 2020 14:01:59 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.

nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.
Jul 24, 2020 23:02:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.
Jul 26, 2020 1:40:18 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.

Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)

Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.

Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on

Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.

Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.

Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
