Games / Re: Nintendo announces successor to the Switch

Post your predictions
probably just the switch again but with better specs.

otherwise, what i'd ideally want is a successor to the 3DS - a portable games console that can realistically fit in my pocket and not make me a glowing beacon for thieves.
i know smartphones can basically do that already, but i'm usually saving my phones battery for messages and calls.

When I checked the forum just now I was logged out and had to log back in. They probably got forced to log out
doesn't seem like it, they updated their profile 4 days ago with a new signature.
it is truly the end of blockland.

i think badspot somehow is still profiting off the forum via ads so its not gonna go down unless it starts losing money
last i heard the forums are entirely self hosted by badspot, and the site doesn't accept file large file uploads (2MB max).
it's probably cheap enough that a single game sale can likely fund the server expenses for another couple of months. especially now that activity is at a minimum.

Noticed that it was pretty inactive today, anyone remember years back when the april fools events happened here?
there's a growing movement that opposes april fools day pranks because "they're annoying". google being a big one, they haven't done a prank since 2019.
given that every big tech company wants to copy each other, most of them saw what google was doing and joined in.

even reddit didn't do one this year, and they always have something up for april fools.

We must get our top scientists to conduct research on this guy
the top scientists made him, he's the first true AI and he's still learning how to communicate with humans.
one day we shall all be bowing before our RLCBM overlord as he hits the gong every hour.

I feel like one of the worst aspects of modern day Roblox is how corporate and boring it has become for maybe long enough and not just since the "metaverse craze" of 2021. Sure, advertising is no new thing for this place, but at least back in the early days it made more sense since most of it was headed towards kids/teens.

Answer me sincerly, what child, no, what person, regardless of their age, is sincerly invested in visiting a virtual home depot, walmart, or any other average mall instead of, y'know, the real thing.
it's absolutely in the novelty of doing such - it'll be used once, people will have a laugh at the quirks and weirdness of the virtual version of so and so, then never touch it again until the service that hosted these things gets shut down because they decided to use an expensive machine learning API to power the search engine.
