Got a Nintendo Switch for the family for Christmas.

I got (for the kids):
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Kirby All Star Allies
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

I got (for myself):
Warframe (for the Switch)
Middle Earth: Shadow of War (for my PS4).

Been a light year for playing video games, for myself. Been playing "Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor", "Star Wars: Battlefront" and "Alien: Isolation" on PS4 this year, and "Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker" with the kids on our Wii U....and that's about it.

I didn't want/get a lot of games this year, and since I got most of them when they came out I ended up with very little on my Christmas list.
  • South Park: The Fractured But Whole
  • Mario Tennis Aces
  • WarioWare Gold
  • Super Mario Party
  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
  • A Hat in Time
  • Lego Incredibles
I'm also thinking about getting N. Sane Trilogy and Disney Afternoon Collection on Steam.

All I got were Street Fighter: 30th Anniversary Collection and Mega Man 11 w/amiibo for the Switch. I also treated myself to an NES Classic.

I also got amiibos of Toon Link, Shiek, Ganondorf, Wolf, and Ridley.

I'd get Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Switch, but I'd rather get it at a sale price since I already have it for the Wii U. I would just be nice to have a version that I could take with me.


I've successful reduced the amount of games I bought this year. I've wrapped up my 3DS purchases while I bought a solid amount of great PS4 games. Hopefully I'll continue this moving forward.

Yakuza 0
Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2
Injustice 2: Legendary Edition
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life
God of War
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age
Mega Man 11

Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology
Detective Pikachu


Beak Freak & Bronikitty
This year I got a grand total of 1 game.

Birthdays the Beginning

This year I wasn’t in the video game mood. I know some games like Smash Bros came out but lately I’ve mostly been playing older games.

Even though this is kind of a late response, I've been meaning to post here, so I figured that I could do a bit of a late look into my video game collection from last year.

I got Super Mario Maker for the 3DS, I got a Nintendo Switch, Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee, Pokken Tournament Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It's a pretty small list and I'm a bit surprised that I didn't get more 3DS games, but after the Pokemon games were announced, I was focused on how to get a Switch. Plus, there are quite a few Switch games that I've been interested in, so I may try to add more to my video game collection this year than I did last year.

Why can't Cartoon Network air shows like Adventure Time, Regular Show, Uncle Grandpa and Clarence instead of Toddler Tightwads No!?

I like her response as to why she chooses Grover.
If you're a writer and a showrunner of a stale show for almost two decades and you disregard an episode you already wrote back in the 90s because of some controversial documentary, I cannot take you seriously anymore.
Was it ever confirmed that CN will host their 2019-2020 upfront this year?
I would love to see a Loud House spinoff comic starring the Loud Family as Ace Savvy and The Full House Gang. Heck, might as well give all the other Loud House characters card-themed superhero/supervillain identities.
