        Dainishi is a musician that performs music to watch usually at the events. Him not being their is disappointing because it means no musical performance. Lurk more newbie and stop letting ecelebs live rent free in your head.

        The game has you calibrate it so that the cardboard spans the whole length of the screen, so I don't see what challenge there is in keeping it "confined" to the cardboard.

        they're just doing a bit, though the game does say to do it like this
        anyway the joycon likely needs to actually roll, just tilting won't do much maybe

        >anyway the joycon likely needs to actually roll
        My point is that there's no reason to have developed the game that way except as a shitpost. This is basically a mobile game, complete with the gameplay of one.

      Yeah. They also already have Winter. Did they increase the event to 3 times a year?

      Guess they are big enough to host it like 3 times a year or something. I imagine a lot of indies are jumping on the train purely for a mostly free poublicity.

          If they get rid of Jason I don't care too much because Jmon is still good, but why get rus of the music segments? Those were so good.

            Yeah. Dainashi elevated the whole thing.
            But he wasn't the only music guy that would show up. Remember when they got the guy who did all the SMT/Persona music to come and do live performances of some new original songs?

          I doubt they couldn't afford, more so they think they outgrow the initial amateurish setup they had and wanted to be more professional with the whole thing. We will see what the format will be in summer/winter after the feedback.

            The amateurish setup was peak soul.
            This show was a step toward making it like every other run-of-the-mill vidya show i.e. bad.

        >first grew to a 2 day event
        >now they have 3 a year
        I've been with them since the very first. It is cool to see them grow.
        Hope this was a fluke with the boring nature of it.

      i guess that explains it, this one was low energy cause it wasn't even a "main" one
      or actually i'm just coping cause the format change is the reason it was low energy so i hope they change it back next time around

      Reply with the pic you'll post next time, I guess.

      Only three games were shown. A mobile-tier toilet paper rolling game, a block-assembling game, and a toaster-pong game.

    The price-guessing segment was boring, and they spent too long discussing their picks.
    This event was fricking two and a half hours, they could have demo'd more than three games.

      Might be good if it offers enough mechanics.

      It was boring, both content-wise and presenter-wise.
