  1. Kent, my man! Thanks for linking that; I totally forgot I asked you to pop over here and do that.
  2. I've activated every single Sheikah Tower, and have gotten to every single town located near each of the Divine Beasts, but I have yet to even officially start the quests to get to the beasts. I'm having too much fun saying "screw the story" and just exploring. I also really appreciate handheld mode because I'm able to bring my Switch to work and just save scumm the Lurelin village gambling game for mad cash while I'm busy coding.
  3. I got the chance to play the Switch last Friday. Here's an absolutely gigantic FB post with my impressions on everything I played.
  4. Are you four doing this direct to YouTube or is it done on Twitch or something similar first?
  5. Double-post! I don't mean to get people's hopes up unnecessarily, but I just want to mention that folks have recently been bugging Retro Studios staff on Twitter what they're currently working on. They keep replying with pictures of prime rib.
  6. I checked in via Discord already, but just posting in here too to let everyone know I AM READY FOR THIS
  7. I love everything about Metroid Prime 1, but I do agree that the artifacts weren't really handled well there, or throughout the entire Prime series really. The macguffins were handled best in Prime 3 IMO, where they were a bit more naturally scattered and easier to pick up as you travel than in Prime 1, and though they were required to complete the game, their usage came piecemeal throughout a side area with huge amounts of atmosphere that made their usage super memorable. But even there, those pickups weren't integrated with the game nearly as well as everything was integrated with the game back in Super, for example.
  8. Chiming in for a belated signup on backup, in case anyone drops out later and you need an extra person to fill the slots back up.
  9. The MAGFest schedule has gone live in the Guidebook app for iOS. The app is obviously on Android too, but some of my old buddies in the Metroid Metal community mentioned last night that something is buggy about the schedule on that side, as an advance warning. I imagine it will be fixed pretty soon. OP post has been updated with the OCR panel names and times. If anything else happens event-wise (like, say, a last minute OCU Spring Break dance party in someone's room or something), I'll continue to edit the post as necessary. Nine days to go! GET HYPE
  10. I knew perfectly well you were going, but I only added names to the OP post of people who posted in this thread to say they were going.
  11. Speaking of Metroid, would Lower Norfair from Super Metroid count? If so, then you can include that and its covered/remixed versions in Metroid Prime ("Lava Caves (Burning Trail)" and "Lava Caves").
  12. I just got an email from MAG staff on the block situation. It's business as usual... with the obvious change that the Gaylord sold out in less than 30 minutes, so there's only five rooms in the block! If you actually did get a room at the Gaylord, wanted to be in the OCR Block, and forgot to fill out the form linked in the OP post (shame on you), reply here with the full name of the person who reserved your room as well as the room reservation number, and I'll email it back to MAG staff to make sure you get in the block. I have to reply back to them by 6p EDT on December 3, so be quick. Current block members: Arrow bustatunez digitallyfanged JenZ OA
  13. Watching these streams is unbelievably fun, man.
  14. @Zeba and I did the Odin FATE yesterday. It was incredible, and loads of fun, and I died like 8 times but the 50 of us just barely managed to beat him with 10 seconds left on the Zantetsuken clock. Great stuff. We didn't get any of the drops you can turn in for Chocobo branding though.
  15. Post-MAG Edit I MISS ALL OF YOU ALREADY (also, screw you, MAGFlu) ---------- You know what this is. You know what we do. MAGFEST 2017 Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center 201 Waterfront Street National Harbor, MD 20745 Jan 5 - 8, 2017 http://magfest.org - Educate yourself. Badge purchasing - Get your badge! Hotel reservation - Get your room! Last year, rooms at the Gaylord sold out in less than 24 hours, so if you want to get in there, be quick about it! There are four overflow hotels in short walking distance though. EDIT: All five hotels sold out in less than 30 minutes this year. >_< MAG's continually setting up more overflow options though. OCR room block - Too late to get in! Small block this year. MAGFest channel on OCR Discord - We used GroupMe last year for OCR people to get in touch with each other and plan around what everyone else was doing, but since we're now on Discord, we're using that this year (shout-out to DarkeSword for making the new channel) If you're coming, reply below to sound off.
