    I'm very HOPEFUL for the Nintendo mobile games having become quite invested in the recent Final Fantasy Record Keeper from DeNA, which is very generous for a free to play game. Microtransactions are very much what they should be - there if you absolutely want to, but completely unnecessary.

    Splatoon paint ball gun thing, or whatever it's called - there was an episode of Daria where they did it anyway. I somehow woke up at 5am and having my oats realised that test drive thing was on, so got a play of it. I was pants, the lowest ranked of my losing team no less, but I thought it was awesome. I think it was my poor choice of weapon though, and I kept forgetting the controls.

    Have we seen this? The way the animatronics move and spin exactly the same as in the game is absurd. It’s like the exact same velocity and motion.

    ooh that looks good! They were really disappointed not to open it this summer because of Miss Roma, the last I heard was they wanted to open it just before the Olympics (so a whole year delay?!), makes me wonder if there’s some big tie-in with the opening ceremony?

    Btw American YouTuber voices are so annoying, do people talk like that in real life?

    I watch GameXplain sometimes. I assume it's the fast talking Andre, who I could not stand at all at first, but now find endearing. I'll bet he spits whilst talking like that.

    There is a way of YouTuber talking though isn’t there? It’s almost as much of an accent as RP for old british newscasters

    WITHOUT FURTHER ADO

    RP?

    They do have an English guy who does have a rather pleasing, old fashioned broadcaster voice. And one of them has a famous ish voiceover dad, but the core 3 seem like hopeless geeks who have found each other in a slightly adorable way :)

    RP is Received Pronunciation, that posh sounding old-timey voice the BBC used in the 50s/60s. Not really a usual accent but it was taught

    well we got in the weeds but my point was it’s put-on


    I think I’ve just been watching too much YouTube, they’ve just all got this faux-peppy hi guys like and subscribe hit the bell style that’s just exhausting now.

    Everything on YouTube is fucking exhausting due to the stupid way it monetises

    - intro into the video you’re about to watch
    - subscribe please
    - shout out the sponsor (usually some accounting software)
    - another intro
    - talking about things not related to the subject of the video and why they’re not related
    - talk about subject of video
    - reword the main subject of the video (repeat x5)
    - (are we at ten minutes yet?)
    - talk about tHe FüTuRE completely speculatively and ask people for their reactions and thoughts on ThE FuTurE in the comments below
    - shout out to “babycheeses6” for last weeks comment
    - subscribe
    - sponsor message

    how does youtube know?
    Or is it just filler to get to 10 minutes and the likes & subscribes being important?

    and it could do with the upgrade to be honest, what an out-dated, dilapidated TOURIST TRAP! (my experience was pre-Harry Potter, mind)

    they upgrade bits but they’re not in a hurry!

    they have those Cool Japan attractions that are different each year too

    That said, I haven’t been for 5 years because I don’t want to stand up for that long

    Jon Cartwright! That is one amazing voice he's got.

    He's just left to go SOLO

    Oh no. Did he actually say he will continue solo? I subscribed to his channel back when he was known as "nomcoms". He took part in a recent "Nate the Hate" podcast and the main host has a similar timbre so it was quite the sandwich to feel you were in :D

    Oh, I don't know what he's doing next now that you mention it. X Factor voiceover man? Tube announcer?

    I can't imagine two versions of him, it's a bit much to take as it is :ken:

    He looks like Diddy

    So what happens? Do you run the course as if you were Mario, hitting ? boxes, disappearing down pipes and jumping on tortoises?

    There’s two rides - a Yoshi Omnimover and Mario Kart style ride.

    The world itself is pretty interactive itself. You can wear a wristband and go punch fuck out of boxes.
