In case you weren't aware, Telltale Game is developing a downloadable episodic game series based on Back to the Future, available for all major platforms. Bob Gale, the producer and co-writer of the film trilogy, is working on the story for the games. (Should I mention Tattoo Assassins? Nah.) Christopher Lloyd is also providing the voice of "Doc" Brown.
Unfortunately, Michael J. Fox was not available for voice recording (altho he still gave permission to use his likeness). But the actor that does provide Marty's voice is a dead ringer! Even Christopher Lloyd said that if you didn't tell him it wasn't Michael J. Fox, he wouldn't have known the difference. It really is amazing!
I'm looking forward to this. Hopefully they'll get Tom Wilson to reprise Biff!
In slightly unrelated news, the 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray edition of the film trilogy is coming out soon, and it includes, for the first time, actual footage of Eric Stoltz as Marty. (Eric Stoltz was originally cast as Marty, and did five weeks of filming before being replaced with Michael J. Fox.) You can see some of it at this news article.
I follow everything Telltale do. So far every license they've picked up has been something I've already been a huge fan of, and the Back to the Future trilogy are among my favourite movies of all time.
I was a little disappointed they couldn't get Michael J. Fox at first, but whoa. That soundalike is pretty dang awesome. Way better than the one they had playing Wallace.
Telltale are pretty weird with console releases. Like, Sam & Max seasons 1 & 2 are available only on Wii and 360, but season 3 is PS3 exclusive. So it's impossible to play all three seasons on one console.
Then there's Wallace & Gromit, which I'm pretty sure is only available on the 360, and Strong Bad and Tales of Monkey Island are only on the Wii... which is why I just stick to getting their games on the PC. It's so much easier to have them all in one place.

No, Telltale is publishing it. I guess they weren't signed up to publish retail games on the Wii until now. The Wii version of Sam & Max Season 1 was published by The Adventure Company, which doesn't seem to be in business anymore.
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.

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.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.

nocturnal YL: I settled on the games I'll showcase for my NinDB Top 25. I've tried a lot of games, but a list of favourites is going to be imbalanced regardless. There are absolutely no NES, N64, DS and original Game Boy games in my list.
Apr 26, 2021 14:41:07 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Given that I just said what my favourite games are not long ago, my list will be unsurprising. Now, should I attempt to rank them? What aspects should I highlight to make them more interesting? Hmm…

Nester the Lark: Remember the "Everybody Votes" channel on the original Wii? There was a section where you could submit your own suggestion for a poll. I seem to recall two of my suggestions being used, but I only remember what one of them was.

Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.
