Nindies Showcase Spring 2019 Live Reactions!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Live in the sense that we're reacting to it hours after it aired. Still new to us!

We were just thinking, after publishing the guest post about Lord Winklebottom Investigates (which has 6 days left on its Kickstarter campaign), KoopaTV really should engage the indie gaming community more. Well, then Nintendo announced that they'd be showing a Nindies showcase today. Let's try it out by reacting to its contents as they happen! (Or as we watch them after the fact. 12 PM is a bad time.)

Here's the 25-minute Nindies (Nintendo Indies) Showcase of Spring 2019. Live-reacting to it are myself and Rawk. Wendy gets an emoji's worth of commentary at the end.


[5:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Tell me when start.
[5:43 PM] RawkHawk2010: Say start when start.
[5:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: start
[5:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Nindies Showcase Spring 2019"
[5:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: OOH
[5:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: MILK
[5:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Good start.

Milk pouring demonstration Nindies Cuphead Nintendo Switch black-and-white
Spoiler alert: This milk-pouring demonstration was Ludwig's favourite part of the showcase.

[5:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Somehow the milk converted into Cuphead.
[5:45 PM] RawkHawk2010: Did we already know this was coming to Switch?
[5:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No.
[5:45 PM] RawkHawk2010: oh
[5:45 PM] RawkHawk2010: inb4 Cuphead in Smash
[5:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "our friends at Microsoft"
[5:45 PM] RawkHawk2010: Yeah
[5:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But what happened to the milk?
[5:45 PM] RawkHawk2010: Renewed Nintendo/Rare relationship is pretty much confirmed at this point.
[5:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Kirk Scott" is the new indie guy.
[5:46 PM] RawkHawk2010: Bootleg Reggie is back.
[5:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This game probably has better gameplay than new Fire Emblem.
[5:47 PM] RawkHawk2010: Don't care about this shit lol.
[5:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "randomly generated" levels in Overland.
[5:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ehhh probably not better than Fire Emblem then.
[5:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: BANANA
[5:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh it's that banana thing from the Devolver E3.
[5:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "The emotional survival game neocab"
[5:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought they were gonna say, uh, something else.
[5:49 PM] RawkHawk2010: ......
[5:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Seems like something that "something else" would make.
[5:49 PM] RawkHawk2010: Huge example of something in which the character designs alone will ensure a non-buy from me.
[5:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now here's a dog-racing game.
[5:50 PM] RawkHawk2010: Pocket Card Dog?
[5:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Maybe it's like Pocket Card Jockey.
[5:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "The Red Lantern"
[5:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Lanturn makes me think that's how you spell the word.
[5:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is the narrator a talking dog?
[5:51 PM] RawkHawk2010: I had to snap myself out of that years ago.
[5:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or the kid riding the dogs?
[5:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: EEEEEEEEEEEK
[5:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: IT'S THAT SCARY BEAR FROM THAT WINDOWS SKIING GAME
[5:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "SkiFree"
[5:52 PM] RawkHawk2010: lol
[5:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That was nightmarish.
[5:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And not just because the narrator said "nightmarish" in the stream.
[5:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: "Crunching Koalas"
[5:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "This next game has both style AND substance."
[5:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: I like that studio name.
[5:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (As opposed to every other game so far?)
[5:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: Or whatever "Crunching Koalas" was.
[5:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That psychologist reminded me of Miles Edgeworth.
[5:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Katana Zero"
[5:54 PM] RawkHawk2010: Capcom Unity posted a Miles Edgeworth blog earlier, speaking of him.
[5:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I should look at it.
[5:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Eek Tim Schafer
[5:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: People still care about Double Fine?
[5:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: I haven't heard about them in years.
[5:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "RAD"
[5:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: (As in like 10.)
[5:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought this was Sunset Overdrive. :x
[5:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Something something MUTATION.
[5:56 PM] RawkHawk2010: "Raz" makes me think of "Pez."
[5:56 PM] RawkHawk2010: Also at least this has music.
[5:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's Rad.
[5:56 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh.
[5:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: Understandable how I thought that D was a Z for sure.
[5:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Isn't this Travis Strikes Again?
[5:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But apparently inspired by pinball.
[5:57 PM] Ryu: (It's better)
[5:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: D's typically don't include sharp acute angles.
[5:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (I haven't played it yet whoops)
[5:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Creature in the Well" is the Travis Strikes Again-esque name.
[5:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: I saw a duck.
[5:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: And that's all I took from it.
[5:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I haven't screenshotted since the milk.
[5:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Fox?
[6:00 PM] RawkHawk2010: This reminds me of Kameo: Elements of Power.
[6:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Pine"
[6:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Open-world third person action adventure game"
[6:00 PM] Ryu: It's the first hit game on the Switch
[6:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I don't trust indies making open-world games.
[6:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It reminds me of Breath of the Wild.
[6:00 PM] Ryu: ^
[6:00 PM] RawkHawk2010: "When Pine Goes Wild"
[6:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: (subtle way of communicating that)
[6:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: spacebugs
[6:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: more spacebugs
[6:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (I feel like we ignore the arcade)
[6:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's like the description was self-aware of the tedium.
[6:02 PM] Ryu: It's like Geometry Wars, but not fun
[6:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh oh, underwater shooter game.
[6:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: lol Mario
[6:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: That looked so stupid.
[6:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Inti Creates next game.
[6:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: (go back and print screen Mario's head.)

Swimsanity! Nintendo Switch versus multiplayer lobby
Rawk, this isn't a big deal. That's what Nintendo Switch profile icons are.
Dunno what a Mooba is. Sounds like a Bovinese Goomba, which is a straight-up improvement.

[6:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Blaster Master Zero is coming to the Nintendo Swish!"
[6:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Wait, it's not already?
[6:03 PM] Ryu: Zero 2
[6:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, NOW they mention a 2.
[6:04 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is Inti Creates the only Japanese developer who is recognized by Nintendo as an indie developer?
[6:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Why does the narrator have a cold?
[6:05 PM] RawkHawk2010: Why is this guy upsidedown?
[6:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Because of Stranger Things 3: The Game.
[6:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I think we saw this before and we asked, "There was a Stranger Things 2: The Game"?
[6:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: My parents stopped watching that.
[6:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.koopatv.org/2018/12/the-game-awards-2018-live-reactions.html
[6:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is it over?
[6:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're running a sale.
[6:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ooh Yoku's Island Express call-out.
[6:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: That girl reminds me of Kat Timpf with her glasses.
[6:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Reminder Yoku won our Best New Character of 2018 award.
[6:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: Wario Land?
[6:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is this Minish Cap?
[6:08 PM] RawkHawk2010: Reminded me of Captain Syrup.
[6:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Wait this is literally Zelda music.
[6:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf
[6:08 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well that looked way better than the Link's Awakening Switch shit.
[6:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, yeah.
[6:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Because Minish Cap is horrifically underrated.
[6:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Crypt of the Necrodancer Feat. Zelda"
[6:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/cadence-of-hyrule-crypt-of-the-necrodancer-featuring-the-legend-of-zelda-switch
[6:09 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: :eyes:
[6:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yoku's Island is 50% off.
[6:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hope they're not going out of business or something.
Nintendo Switch Indie Sale Spring 2019 Yoku's Island Express
The sale headlines saving up to 30% on select indie games, and name-drops Yoku's Island Express.
But Yoku's Island Express is actually 50% off.


This reaction log probably doesn't qualify as successful or enthusiastic indie outreaching. If you think KoopaTV should keep trying, share your opinion in the comments section! Or share your opinion about the actual games in the comments section, too. That's alright.


Yoku's Island Express being 50% off later gets an in-depth look at the game.

    1. MUTATION

      Well it's not even the best music of the showcase (CryptoDancer).

  2. I am excited for Cuphead but afraid my reaction time won't be as well as it used to and I would do horribly against all its bosses.
