It's no secret that Nintendo hasn't been doing well the past few years. I own a Wii U, and I have played some of the best games ever on it: Xenoblade Chronicles (not X, I also own X, but it shrivels in comparison to the original), Smash Bros, Splatoon, Mario Maker! But I cannot deny it's flaws. It's internal storage is incredibly tiny and the small library of Virtual Console games have been some of the complaints I have with the system. It's sad that it'll forever be known as a flop in the coming future.

Anyway, the Wii U has finished digging it's own grave, and although it's sad to see it go, it's also time to look forward. Last night, Nintendo showcased it's upcoming console in a video presentation, the Nintendo Switch. With many fans divided on how they view this handheld-console hybrid, we all unanimously agree that this video would determine the fate of not only Nintendo sales, but also the future of the company as a whole.

And after watching this presentation, I say that Nintendo nailed it. I have never been excited for a console in my whole life.

SUPER MARIO ODYSSEY!
SPLATOON 2!
XENOBLADE 2!
FIRE EMBLEM WARRIORS!
o yay...skyrim...
SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI 5!
ZELDA!

Nintendo please...my wallet won't last...

This far exceeded what I've been expecting! yeah, no word on Monster Hunter, Metroid, Smash Bros and the like, but it's amazing of how much of this reveal hasn't been leaked or even hinted at! There are other titles like Arms and that Switch party game, and they look fun too!

The only bummer was the fact that it's online multiplayer service isn't free anymore, and I'm hoping beyond hope that it wouldn't be pricey....but they do promise free SNES games with that subscription, with online play?

I dunno.
My mind is just too busy with the Xenoblade and Fire Emblem hype!

Hopefully, I can get back to updating my status regularly instead of rarely. I've been planning on doing some intense practicing with my art skills over the break and am currently working on a secret project. I had this idea for about a year and I hope beyond all hopes that I can get myself to finish it ASAP! I won't say what it is yet, but know that it involves 3D and one of my favorite games of all time!
How about a little funny story? Me and a group of friends decided to do a Secret Santa a few weeks ago. My personal rule when giving gifts this year is to not give anyone any video games or gifts cards. I had absolutely no idea what to give my person, he's not exactly the type who loves everything, even the closest of his friends don't exactly understand his tastes. So me and two friends went over to the mall to pick out our gifts, and while we were browsing through GameStop, I found this Pikachu onesie.

We all thought it would be the perfect Secret Santa gift, and knowing my person, he would either give me a hug or strangle me or both. But that dream was dashed when I went up to the counter and I found out that the price was $40 (the price tag said $20 btw, so i dunno what to believe anymore). In the end, I ended up giving him a book along with a couple of card games, all of which he enjoyed, so yay!
So that was the past week for me, I hope you guys have a Happy Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, New Years and I'll be sure to post alot this coming month!

I watched a friend playing as a werewolf in Skyrim, I started and finished playing To the Moon, and there was a super moon in the last week, so I figured that I would continue the trend by playing Pokemon Moon.

My brother would be playing Sun at the same time.

For the past few weeks, I've been struggling in my Computing for Scientists assignments (and no, it's not the same as Computer Science, just in case you were wondering). And do you wanna know why?
Because of fetching MatLab.
If you're a programmer out there who hasn't heard of MatLab, I don't blame you and it's best you stay away from it. It's literally broken. I wouldn't call it an easy version of Java, it's just Java for people waiting to be brain damaged. Any amount of freedom you are given for using Java programs like Eclipse or JGrasp is limited by MatLab's stupid restrictions. To give you an idea: once you type a line of code and then press the ENTER button, that line of code stays. So there's no way to go back to fix or edit a mistake, you have to copy the whole program, clear the whole thing, then paste it. Sometimes, when I'm stuck on a problem, it wouldn't show the correct answer until I retype (word for word) the whole goddamn thing! And you wanna know what makes the program, nay, the whole class, even more ridiculous? We don't even know what LANGUAGE WE'RE USING!
People pay actual $$$ for this?!!
Moral of the story: coding requires a lot of trial and error, but if you're using MatLab, you're gonna be trialing forever. I'm not gonna feel bad for the teacher, he actually found his place in life if he keeps using this hunk of junk.
