      It's been a while, but I'm still not a fan of how Zelda Wiki went to Gamepedia. Seems counter to the idea of a Nintendo INDEPENDENT Wiki Alliance. If Mario Wiki ever gets an offer by a corporation like that, I'd genuinely be interested in raising money to buy the site specifically so a billionaire CEO and friends don't get their hands on it.

      God, it's so pathetic when people complain about games telling them to 'get gud' or what not. At the end of the day, a game is something you beat thanks to skill, you're not 'owed' the ending just for owning it. And if a game wants to point that out, well that's fine. Lighten up a bit.

        I suspect half the whiny 'journalist' types would have a crying fit if they read the Donkey Kong 64 manual too:

        > Tough luck kid. I've been told to keep my mouth shut, as they want to keep all the good stuff for a money-making strategy guide. I'm sure some of it will appear on the newfangled 'internet' thing as well, so I suggest you take a look-see there. You could also ask your friends, assuming of course you've got any. If all else fails, you'll just have to play better.

        I think "git gud" is a good thing. Like you said its what makes games what they are. "git gud" is however not an excuse for unfair games. As much as i hate journalists complaining about difficulty it did recently cross my mind that they probably have tight deadlines so struggling to beat a hard game in time must be a headache. BotW could definitely kick your ass if you aren't prepared but much of the game is optional and you can beat it whenever you what and gaming journalists seem to really enjoy that game. I may disagree with how they complain about games like Crash and Cuphead but i'm starting to think gaming journalism is fundamentally flawed and we shouldn't hate on them so much. You probably aren't targeting journalist in particular but ince they where mentioned i just wanted to add that. Everyone else has no excuse for complaining.

      Okay, I'm gonna say it right now. If you're going to blame the recent crimes in America on 'video game violence', you're an idiot. Start solving real problems, not blaming gamers for everything.

        You can really blame anything popular. I'm surprised video games are still the popular scapegoat considering today's mainstream music being the most crass it's ever been.

        That doesn’t seem to be as prevalent as it was in the past, in the era of Lieberman and Thompson. These days it’s people like Anita whatshername and her goons attacking games for not having enough ugly women and black people

        True, the 'video games causing violence' narrative isn't as common, but it's still there at times, and it's still infuriating. And the 'video games are sexist/racist/whatever' crap from people like Sarkeesian is just as bad. It's the 'leftist' version of Jack Thompson and 'video games cause violence'.

        I was thinking a Desert Island Discs format would be great, but this works better than stopping the interview for music selections.

        I will just say, as the host you should always let your guest finish speaking before speaking yourself. You can hear Grant hesitating at times and getting a little exasperated whenever you acknowledge him loudly mid-sentence with "yeah" or "okay". It gets a bit ridiculous after a while.

        Your voice is fine for interviewing, though. You just need to refine your style and iron out a few interviewing faux pas. A great idea would be to watch the greats regularly, like Parkinson, and pay attention to their professionalism.

        Yah, but DKL2 added Dungeon Danger and Krazy Koaster. Regardless of area names, I've played them side by side, and the layouts are not the same. Glimmer's Galleon is a massive pitch black maze, while Kleaver's Kiln involves Krockheads and firing at Kleaver with a cannon!

        DKL2 is more a "Game Boy re-imagining" or extension. The word "port" is thrown around far too much, and it's very misleading. It implies they contain the exact same layout, which simply isn't true.

        It was pretty informative, you betcha! I learned some new things about Grant.
        You take the middle-ground approach, acting both casual and professional. It puts the conversation at ease, and makes it feel like a friendly powwow.
        Of course, Grant is a very laid-back sort of bloke, so that's easy to pull off.

        My one little pointer would be watching out for repeating yourself, like "either way". You say that quite a lot (even in the comment above).
        It reminds me of my past conversations with industry veterans on Youtube and Facebook. When I went back to re-read them, I was banging my head with a hammer over my sloppy repeats and wording!
        One eye on the guest, one eye on your prose. That's my strategy for interviewing.

        Top stuff all the same, CM30! What a privilege!

      Anyone else feel Mario Odyssey reminds them of a Mario & Luigi or Paper Mario game? It's got the feel of one if you ask me, with the original settings, original characters, good use of nostalgic references, Bowser with more personality, etc. Quite a bit of humour too.

      And I thought multiple carts were annoying in the PS1 era. Nope, the Amiga version of Rise of the Robots apparently came on 13 floppy discs, and you had to change disc multiple times to get past the intro cutscene.
