Guessing time! ft. Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017


*checks his last post’s date*

Uh, so many months since my last article on this blog, wow. And so much stuff happened in the past few months, including…NX’s formal announcement, finally. Ops, sorry, I meant the Nintendo Switch’s formal announcement. An unusual kind of announcement, especially compared to what most people expected, form-wise: not a Direct of sorts, but a 3:30 video that teases the most relevant features of the device, some games, official name and logo, and then goodbye to January 12th / 13th (depending on your timezone) for everything else. And now, it’s just slightly more than two weeks before the day: that’s when we’ll see if the great and attractive package shown this October delivers and it crushes everything and shines more than the Sun and manly tears are shed for the awesome, or if it fails and crushes and brings Nintendo to their bottom and people will cry sad tears and-what’s going on with the hyperboles?

Seriously though, it’s going to be a major step in Switch’s life, and many people (me included, I’ll be honest here) hope the event will be good in several ways. So, I thought this is a good time to write about some games I’m expecting and / or hoping to see appear on stage or just getting announced. It should be fun to look back, after the Presentation, to see how much stuff I got right (or wrong. Mostly wrong, I’m sure).

Culdecpt Revolt dedicated Direct announced

Nintendo and Omiya Soft have been developing the next installment in the Culdcept series, Culdcept Revolt, for quite some time. This represents the first actual brand new episode in 12 years. A few months ago, Nintendo announced it would have been released in July in Japan (no, don’t even ask for the West, that way you won’t be disappointed when it’s not announced for its release here), and it seems time for more infos on the game is coming soon

A beginning!

Hello to everyone. I’m Marco, but those of you who read NeoGAF know me as Mpl90. For those who don’t know me, I’m an Italian guy who, just coincidentially, is also a rabid Nintendo hater who would love to see that company die to finally play Zelda on PS4 alongside real games #4theplayers like The Order 1886, and who also believes that Midna, after all, is quite a hornbat. …Naah. Jokes aside, this is “The Flying Thoughts”, something I wanted to do for quite some time. Actually, hidden in the sea of bullshit and amazingness that is the Internet, there’s an Italian blog the name of which, if translated, is the same as this one. And the reason for that coincidence is that it’s mine…a blog where I returned to write after a one-year hiatus just last January, with more frequent updates this month. But, with a renewed enthusiasm in sharing my thoughts or whatever comes up to my mind with the world, I decided to expand my dong…err, I mean the amount of people that can enjoy (or despise, the choice’s up to you ladies and gentlemen!) whatever I write. And so, here’s “The Flying Thoughts”.

Well, what will be “The Flying Thoughts” about? As just said, my thoughts or whatever comes up to my mind. However, considering gaming is my biggest hobby / passion, of course articles about gaming will be among the top features on this blog, but I want to talk about different topics from different fields in the future, and in different tones, between interesting and random (a wide spectrum, I know); hopefully, I can maintain this promise. Also, I don’t want to make promises (for now) about when articles will go up, how frequently the blog will be updated: simply put, article will go up when they can go up.

I…don’t think there’s that much else to say, honestly. This opening post should contain everything necessary as a presentation of this idea. The only thing left to say is a good way to salute readers, so… “Thank God for- ” no, that’s Jim Sterling’s closure…mmh…no, that’s Ideaman’s trademark, “If you need to le-” aah, too much Bayonetta in Smash…oh well, this should suffice.

See you soon, world!
