No idea what Lost Reavers is, but free to play means I might check it out. It also means I'll probably not like it.

I'm looking forward to trying the Lost Reavers Beta...we'll see if it holds my interest. Anyone want to party up tonight or tomorrow?


It looks similar to Phantasy Star Online, so it immediately has my interest piqued.

@ludist210 Oh wait that is the Namco game?! You would think there would be a little more noise about the release of a "AAA" company's game. Hmm.

I don't think that's what you'd call AAA, but I'd be down to try it, looks like it might be some good dumb fun!

Wow @ all the big hitter SNES games arriving on the same day. I'm very tempted to grab DKC2 (GOAT).

Will check out Lost Reavers beta. It's online, right? Anyone down to play tonight?

Yes, it's Project Treasure. I don't know if it's AAA, but it certainly looks enjoyable. Especially for free.

@deathly_hallows I just mean "AAA company" as in major publisher.

@anon_mastermind What does "GOAT" mean I just saw someone else use this term too. Game of all-time?!

Something the press release doesn't mention: Runbow is getting DLC. Time to revisit it!

I have a confession to make, my Wii U hasn't been hooked up for a couple months, basically when I got my Xbox One I ran out of sockets on my power strip and although there was enough room to plug in the console there wasn't enough room to plug in the charger for the WUG!

However, I just received a deluxe 36", 12-socket, Tripp Lite surge protector so it's time to get my Wii U back in action! Can't wait to play some Splatoon, Yarn Yoshi, TP, and Zero Mission!

and I seriously think Lost Reavers looks fun, psyched to play it

Greatest Of All Time

Close! It stands for Greatest Of All Time.

Hmm. So did it arise from this LL Cool J album or what? How have I never heard of this term before?!

 on: 04/14/16, 20:03:29
*looks lamentably at the three SNES games......no New 3DS.

LL Cool J did not create G.O.A.T., I refuse to believe it!

Yes, I'm aware thats one of his albums. Its from LLCoolJopoly, DUH.

And you probably haven't heard of G.O.A.T. because of the kinds of things your interests line up with.
Jerry Rice is the GOAT. No doubt.

EDIT- And theres a GREAT video on YouTube that you guys will love about its origin story..

Metroid 3 y'all.


Am I a terrible person in that I have no real inclination to replay Super Metroid ever again?

A Link to the Past however (Zelda 3 y'all ), that I snapped up the other week.

*Hugs 3DS*

You crazy, dawg. Sometimes I replay Super Metroid on a whim when I have a free evening. It often is the best way possible to spend two hours!

Should have designed it better than Zero Mission then

I'll replay that forever.
