You're most welcome! I think it's just a holdover from when GX was a much smaller channel. When there are only two or three folks, it's easy to tell who's who. I played around with creating a lower-third to let the viewers know who's reviewing, but I never quite got around to finishing it. I probably should!

Thread Nintendo Direct Speculation |OT6| OT7 Has Been Rated in Korea
When I say I've seen nothing credible, I mean precisely that. All I'm saying is I've seen nothing saying a Direct is happening beyond some people on Twitter saying they've heard it's happening. Basically, I've seen all the same things y'all have seen. Nothing more, nothing less. With just eight days left in the month, I'm betting against a Direct happening during PAX East, but that's based solely on my own intuition.

Thread PlayStation cancels planned PAX East appearence due to increasing concerns related to Coronavirus
This definitely wasn't a decision made lightly. As said, tons of cash is being lost on this for them. Sony's doing the right thing to protect their staff and the contractors they work with. How are people even mad at this decision?

Thread Digital Foundry: Stadia Red Dead 2 runs at 1440p and 30 fps at X1X settings on Chromecast. 1080p uncapped in browser.
It's important to remember that Stadia doesn't exist in just one data center and the DF crew and I were certainly not playing RDR2 off the same physical hardware. That said, there's a reason I didn't try to emulate what they do: and are absolutely the experts in this field and their analyses are beyond reproach. The inclusion of the comparison in the review was to illustrate the visual differences between physical and cloud-based hardware.

Thread 1 Hour of Little Town Hero Gameplay from GameXplain
Hey there, Steve here. I shot this video and this wasn't a preview. This is footage from a review build I recorded from my couch. This is the first chapter of the game, and what you're seeing is definitely me learning how the game works, since it's literally the first hour. Full review coming tomorrow.

Not that I noticed, no. But I also didn't dive deep into the settings, we haven't had a ton of time to work on the review.

Thread [Rumour / Speculation / Leak?] Perhaps White Joy-Cons might be coming? White Joy-Con Shells appear on AliExpress
I wouldn't read too much into this. I'd love some white joy-cons but I doubt AliExpress is gonna beat Nintendo to the punch on this one.

Thread Rumor: Nintendo planning to strengthen Nintendo Switch Online by adding "new services aimed at enthusiasts"
I avoided the use of the term whale as it could be seen as offensive, and I was also fighting for space in that tweet. But yes, the article mentions those who are big spenders as being the target for this additional feature, leading me to believe its likely to be a paid add-on to NSO, though that's my opinion and isn't openly stated in the article.

I did! Derrick was busy with KH3 or else he would've taken it. I think it worked out for the best though since he isn't big on the customization stuff and I am. The intro was actually the first thing I did when I got my Switch copy!

This content is under embargo, which is why you aren't seeing it any reviews. Even if it weren't, waiting until the game is out at least would be the right thing to do.

Thread Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DT10 | News, Site Updates, and Speculation | A Change Of The Heart
I've been seeing a crazy amount of misinformation on Twitter, and downright ridiculous stuff being said about various people in the industry, so I thought I'd make a post to clarify what has been said publicly by most folks on the subject of Smash and its leaks. I'm pretty sure I've covered my own opinion enough here, but I'll start there: The banner leak is fake. I've heard this from multiple sources but cannot confirm if the content of it is fake. I believe the contents are at least partially fake for reasons I can't divulge. The banner leak is fake. "Another example of an extremely blurry leak." tweeted the following: "There's also the fact that, well, the roster seems woefully incomplete. Every single Super Smash Bros. game has added a new Pokemon character. Pikachu and Jigglypuff headlined the first game, Mewtwo came in at Melee, Brawl introduced Lucario, and the 3DS/Wii U game brought in Greninja. Since the last game's release, a new Pokemon generation has had two mainline games, and Pokemon itself has seen a resurgence in sales and popularity that had more or less taken over the world again, however temporarily. The presumption of a new Pokemon fighter in each game is so concrete that Greninja was originally just listed as "New Pokemon" on the game's design document, according to director Masahiro Sakurai, to be decided at a later date. This would be a strange time to suddenly decide the series does not need a new Pokemon character." - GX in particular seems to be getting the brunt of the craziness on Twitter for the time being, seemingly because they haven't dissected the leak enough. I can't speak for them, but if I had to guess the discourse around this whole topic is enough for them, and if they all agree its fake, a lengthy discussion video without a counterpoint would be a bit boring, IMO. I've seen tweets aimed at people all over the industry that don't support the leak claiming they've said all manor of stuff, or are in Nintendo's pocket, or are dismissing the leak because Incineroar wasn't in it, when in reality, I don't think anybody has said that. Saying it's weird more people aren't expecting another Pokemon isn't the same thing as saying, "this one very specific Pokemon is in the game and I believe it wholeheartedly."

I'm saying I know for a fact the Snapchat video and banner are fake, for a few reasons I can't discuss without endangering my sources, but they're fake. You're correct that I don't know if those characters are in or out. The banner itself is a fake. That's all I know that I can say publicly about it. I haven't seen the real banner personally, no. I doubt anyone on my side of the industry has. I can't deconfirm any specific characters from the Snapchat video, all I can confirm is that the Snapchat video is indeed fake.

Thread Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DT10 | News, Site Updates, and Speculation | A Change Of The Heart
I should probably clarify here. While I don't personally believe Banjo is in Smash, I have no information on that either way. I do know the banner leak is fake, and that's what I was referring to when I said he's wrong. I think it's entirely possible some characters in the supposed leak could make it into the game, but I do believe the entire thing is an elaborate hoax. When I say it's wrong, I'm speaking to the actual Snapchat video and banner everyone's going insane about, not specifically its contents. I hope that helps clear the air a bit.

I had never heard of his channel before this, so no, I can't. But I can tell you he's definitely wrong, and I believe him when he claims his info comes from sources. I just think the sources he's got are pulling the wool over his eyes and I feel bad that he's being targeted that way.

I don't think he's a bad person, I'm simply saying he's been wrong about Smash across the board. In all honesty I feel bad for him, I don't think he's lying, but that he's instead been duped by fake "sources" using him to spread lies.

The only consistent thing about PapaGenos's videos is that he's been wrong about Smash. In all of them.

Thread RUMOR: Massive Smash Ultimate leak is allegedly an emotional roller coaster [UPDATES IN OP]
Not surprised at all by how you've been treated here. Trying to set expectations is not only thankless; it's apparently frowned upon here. I've seen several of the most reputable people in the industry dragged in these threads.

I can say that without endangering my sources, so yeah. Anyway, I'm seeing now that this wasn't worth it. I'm out. There's a lot that logistically doesn't make sense here though, if you think about it enough. For instance, do you really think Bandai Namco is handling marketing for Smash?

Thread RUMOR: Massive Smash Ultimate leak is allegedly an emotional roller coaster [UPDATES IN OP]
I'm not sure why you would think Bandai Namco would be responsible for making retail displays for a Nintendo-published game. This would be the first time in the history of Nintendo that they've had a third party developer handle the retail presentation of one of their games. What's the proof that Bamco is handling this?

It isn't my info to give out. The people I've spoken with have done so knowing I wouldn't leak information, but I can tell you those I've spoken to have all unequivocally said that this "leak" isn't legit.

Yeah, no. That isn't why. The picture is blurry, sure, but most industry folks I've talked to have other, far more legit reasons for not believing this "leak".
