I upgraded my apartment to a much sweeter place like almost a year ago, and we still haven't had a game party here? Time to rectify that!
My brother's GF is going to be in town for a few weeks and she is a gamer too so I thought it might be neat to have a party while she is here? So I'm shooting for Saturday, June 4th. Does that work for people?
Day / time: Sunday, May 29th. 4 pm - ??? Location / my phone #: Don't want to post publicly PM me for it. Confirmed almost definitely coming: We'll see. Lots of my family and a few NW people if no one else.
Non-alcoholic drinks and snacks will be provided as usual. Still live within walking distance of Portillo's though it is a slightly longer walk now. Could always take cars.
Here is what we may / will probably be playing:
Wii U The usuals: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Mario Kart 8, Nintendo Land, Spin The Bottle: Bumpie's Party, etc. New stuff: Runbow!, Extreme Exorcism
PC / Steam The usuals: Duck Game, Towerfall Ascension, Samurai Gunn, Gang Beasts (maybe someday we will figure it out), etc. New stuff: CRAWL, Astro Duel, Speedrunners, Hidden in Plain Sight
3DS The usuals: Super Smash Bros. for 3DS, Mario Kart 7, etc. uh, do we ever really play much 3DS at these things?!
Should we try to play Zelda 4 Swords Adventures?! I have such a hankering for it lately.
What I need other people to bring: 2 360 controllers (I only have 2) 2 more Wii U classic controllers if people don't want to get stuck with Wiimotes for 8 player Smash 1 More Wiimote... I guess? If we play Wii games? Your own 3DS + copies of any multiplayer games you want to try Any games you want to try that I didn't list above (might as well ask me first if I already have it though...)
Star Fox 64 3D (which I was just starting up and enjoying quite a bit) Kid Icarus Uprising (only played a few levels in, was waiting for the New 3DS to dive back in) Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX (only played a few songs so far, pretty fun stuff) Paper Mario: Sticker Star (played a few worlds, very charming) Kirby Triple Deluxe (played the first world, seemed awesome) Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes (was on the LAST fucking level)
I was super excited to play farther into all of them. Why, oh why, couldn't I have lost a case of dumb RPGs, instead?
I hadn't actually realized how low Nintendo's recent print runs were until I checked out the price of replacement. Sticker Star is the only one that I can grab cheaply. And Project Mirai and Triforce Heroes are the only two that are still in print. I'll probably just wait for a Buy 1 Get 1 used sale at Gamestop and grab them all. And then Nintendo will probably announce that they've all joined the Player's Choice lineup the next day.
Consciously, I realize that lamenting over my lost case of games is super lame. It's just money, in the end.
But I still hate losing stuff! And I didn't even freaking play them! I just studied Japanese and slept for the whole plane trip!
(P.S. If it was really Beetlejuice-esque, Zero would have had to say my name three times. He only got to two!)
Public transit isn't too hard, I can post more specific directions later in private but it's basically Orange line and a single bus to get a few blocks from my place. Plus there will be people with cars around so it might even be possible to pick you up from the Orange line / drive you back. Or whatever.
But yeah let me know as soon as possible. I talked to my bro and they're free on the 29th as well so that is probably the best day to get everyone.
@Shadowlink Mmm, I don't think save data carries over from retail to digital. But that would only really be a problem for Triforce Heroes.
I wouldn't mind having digital versions, but my 32 GB memory card is pretty much packed to the brim right now. I guess you can use larger cards, if you reformat them? But it seems like a hassle/additional expense.
Star Fox 64 3D and Kid Icarus Uprising (and even Kirby Triple Deluxe) are actually kind of rare now! I mean, it would cost me much more than I originally paid for them just to get used cart-only copies. Star Fox alone goes for $100 or more new, even though it's been Player's Choiced in Europe and Japan.
Again, it's only money. I feel dumb for still even thinking about it. It's not like the games have any kind of sentimental value to me.
