Quoted from FatPanda:

It's nice to be able to resell a physical copy once you're done playing it, if you're not the collector type that keeps every game you buy.

Yea I get it, when I was 20 that was cool. I have kids now though so maybe it’s different? It’s Fun for us revisit old games. Hell, my son still asks to fire up the wiiu once in a blue moon.

Quoted from Eskaybee:

Who gets phsyical copies anymore? Turn on tv/console, pick game, play. No cartridge hassles, no container mismatches; easy peezy plug n play.

I only buy physical. I tend to stick with one game for a while so it's really no hassle to change the carts. And I don't have to worry about Nintendo shutting down my digital purchases in the future when they move onto the next console or digital service. I guess that's the way I'll always be. If I buy something I want to be able to hold it in my hand.

Lots of people.

#2054 5 days ago

I'm physical only as well but that might be tested if Cadence of Hyrule doesn't get a physical release...

#2055 5 days ago

I usually give the physical copies away when done playing them.
Sometimes they come back sometimes they don’t.

I’m super stoked for cuphead. Have some long airplane trips in May and that will be perfect

I go back and forth. I generally buy physical if it's a full price $60 game. Part of it is "I'm paying this much, I want a real thing"....part of it is the ability to sell the game down the road if I don't like it. I hated Crash Trilogy & Rocket League...so I'm glad I got those physically so I could sell them. I've buckled a few times on this...Mario Odyssey & Smash Bros. Partially cuz I wanted to play them immediately at 9pm the nite before release day...and partially cuz I've NEVER sold a Mario game ever...so having it attached to my system seemed fine.

Digital is a no brainer when a game is around $15 or less...lots of great games are on sale for just a few bucks. I don't care about reselling them if I get them so cheap.

Now with Cuphead...seems like a game that I'd never want to get rid of due to the amazing animation....but also I've been WISHING it on Switch since I saw it...so the dumb part of me kinda wants to hold the real game in my hand lol....

....I dunno, I'll probably just end up downloading it.

#2057 5 days ago

I buy only physical because I own more than one Switch. If you have them physical it is an easy swap but not so much with the download versions. The market can only be on one Switch, so to play a game on the other Switch you need to change the Market to the other Switch, losing al of the downloaded games. Welcome to "easy".

Stupid but true. At least it was like that a year ago. Since then I only bought physical.

#2058 5 days ago

Finished up the Blaster gun tonight in the VR starter kit. Got some game time in with the Aliens in the city game. Pretty fun! Better than I was expecting. There was one boss that reminded me of the giant floating creatures in the first Avengers movie. Of course, it was a Nintendo version of it, but similar in how it glided. Very cool boss battle. My 6-year old is going to have his mind blown when he gets to play this tomorrow!

Hell yea it does. Rated M....looks like it’s just for blood; as long as no profanity or perverse gore, should be ok for me and my son

If you are "buying" digital - you actually aren't buying anything. You are at the whim of nintendo or whoever keeping servers available. Digital only games is a bad idea IMO. The "complete" game should be on a memory card or a disk or a cart. Personally I believe it should be a card. Any DLC we buy should be able to download to a memory card and move to another console with zero issues by simply moving the card.

The other option is games are a quarter of the price for a digital vs physical copy or you move to a complete rental model.

Digital games are giving buyers the impression they own something when in fact they don't.

It also leads to really lazy game development "let's just send out a day one 2 GB patch with the actual game". oy!

Pumped to play cup head finally.

And my tetris 99 gold coins got me a decent discount

Always one of "those guys".

Look, I generally agree with you in theory, but the fact is - every disc or cart game now has significant patches & updates that need to be downloaded. They're not on the cart. So, if the worry is "oh no, I won't be able to play this in 20 years cuz servers!", the whole game isn't on that cart or disc anyway.

Everything gets archived, everything gets hacked. If for some reason my digital Cuphead on my Switch's microSD card doesn't work in 20 years, I'm sure my Switch will be hacked by then and I can just download the "rom". No biggie.

Game collectors need to realize that life itself is temporary...their games will outlive them. Just enjoy playing them now & have fun.

Anyway - I bought Cuphead DIGITAL today and am loving it.

Whoa, are you a mega expert? How many 1sts did you get?

I've been getting more lately than usual, but I just assumed that's because the mega experts got bored.

"one of those guys" lol. You must be a "yungin". I'm not adverse to digital - as I said if cost is reflected. Not sure why you want to pay full price for something that's vaporware though. Kind of naive on your part or you're part of the generation that will never own anything. Easy to throw insults.

And yes, games now a days need a zero day patch or download.......but why......and further if so, with the cost of storage (memory cards) and the magic of technology, you should be able to download it to the physical card you bought the game on. Its the fact that you've been convinced you should just accept this is the problem. I get the convenience of digital......so ask yourself why does it have to be one or the other. If you're paying 80 bones for a game, you should get the physical game with capability to download DLC patches onto it AND then upload it to your system so you don't need the cart.

I guess you also live in a big city where broadband is fast and cheap (me too), but hey, there are still alot of people in North America that don't have that.

The point is - ask more of Nintendo, Sony, MS, and game dev's. Ask them to charge less, or actually sell us a complete product.

I was kind of being sarcastic yet true at the same time with my comment. When you have small kids, physical games are a pain in the ass. Same with movies. But digital games on switch are downloaded onto the system and/or memory card, it’s not cloud based like iTunes so it can still be played locally. And i use iTunes too but I can download our cloud purchases onto any of our devices for road trips or local use.

Quoted from Hobbypinball:

I'm 42...but whenever I see a post about any digital release game on the internet, I always see SOMEONE who's gotta chime in "YOU'RE JUST RENTING IT!". It's like whenever there's a retro game discussion and someone has to chime in with "RASPBERRY PI". We get it. Don't buy digital games. You do you.

Quoted from Hobbypinball:

I paid for a game, and I received a game. That's not vaporware. Vaporware is a product that never gets released, like a Jpop game, Big Lebowski, or Deep Root. As an old wise man, I can teach you this.

That's a "piracy" issue. They don't want you to buy a cart/disc and then give it to all your friends for free.

Quoted from Hobbypinball:

I'm 100% happy with Nintendo's products. I thought Splatoon 2 was complete enough for me to be happy with it at launch....they could have left it alone. I consider it super cool that they've kept adding stages, weapons, gear, and special events at no extra cost. Same with ARMS (new characters, arms, stages, art gallery, special events). Same with Mario Kart (adding Labo compatibility for free). They're doing a great job, and I feel like I'm getting my money's worth for such great art and entertainment. Lets see....Cuphead for $20 or that lunchbox looking pile of crap Willy Wonka for $12,500 ...LOL...ask more from pinball makers. Video game makers are giving us some sweet sweet magic.

I never buy my Pinball games digital. I always go for the physical copy.

How is that a piracy issue. Somehow we've been told that lending a game or music to someone is piracy. You know as well as I do Nintendo or any other can limit that game to only play on one device at one time. DRM protection would only require a quick simple handshake with a server.

Raspberry pi for games blows - shouldn't ASSume things. Kind of speaks to the maturity of your post though

You downloaded a game at a period in time. You don't have anything. Your console dies for whatever reason and you have zero games. Remember the good old days when your saves actually went to the cart or at least to a local memory card. Ya, we're much better off without that................

And as I said in both posts - no problems with digital only....simply adjust the price. You're paying a 25% premium for Switch games over other platforms - people say it's cause of the cart. That's fine. so a digital game should be and minimum 25% cheaper out of the gate. Just cause you want to take it in the forehead doesn't mean its a good idea.

You exist for a period of time. You don't have anything. When you die for whatever reason you have zero existence.

You can enjoy life, or be a fucking crab. That's on you.

I agree. I don't like Raspberry Pi at all. Who's ASSuming things?

Cup head is literally handing me my ass! And I love it!

Quoted from V_piscopo:

The lack of lives & in-stage power ups definitely seems to be an artificial way to pump the difficulty, though - don’t you think? Oh well, it is what it is - forcing me to play precisely when I’m usually a bit more loosey goosey.

#2076 2 days ago

I agree. It's caused me to really learn the lvl through repetition just like in the nes days.

I’ve been playing the Celeste B-Sides lately, so I feel like I’m prepped for that muscle-memory type repetition....but dang, I’m getting slaughtered. Lol.

#2078 2 days ago

Me too. I thought id play it with my kid. (5) that's not gonna happen. Lol. I don't know who's more annoying to play with, her or my wife. (38)

#2079 2 days ago

Aw yeah, just beat the world 1 boss with a Perfect!!! I think I’m better at the boss battles than the Run n’ Gun parts.

#2080 1 day ago

So there arent any power ups, different weapons, etc in Cuphead? Is there an ability tree or anything else?

I had 21 bit didn't even play in the last one.

But cuphead is great. I'm loving the difficulty but I love hard games

Just the power canon you build up while shooting. It is just straight pattern recognition, in true all or none fashion.

My game typically goes like this..... none, none, none, none, all, excitement builds, none, none, throw controller....

Did anyone get into the Let's Go Pokémon games?

I played the original on Gameboy (and a couple of iterations after up to GBA) and this Switch version is kind of ok, but pretty dumbed-down by comparison. Mostly the random encounters are just really annoying and involve no battling like in the original. Otherwise it seems to be pretty much the same game as the original. I got through a few gym leaders and don't know if I'll end up finishing it.

I'm still grinding my way through Dark Souls, and am still frustrated by what seems like a lack of players online to summon or be summoned by. From my perspective, I'm basically soloing through the game, which is much more difficult.

Hmmm. The one thing I love about side scroll shooters is the variety of weapons or power ups you can get ala Contra or Mega Man. If there's a demo, I may have to try it before I buy it. It does look beautiful though, but my kids will undoubtedly want to play it but then ultimately get frustrated.

Watch any videos you can to get a better feel. Some of the levels are side scrollers, but many are static pattern recognition. I think the combination of artwork, sounds, music, and presentation make Cuphead really stand out. This game has a ton of charm and personality.

#2087 1 day ago

Haven't had my Switch fired up in a long time but i turned it on last night and it was nice to see Mike Tysons punch out on there as one of their free games. I like that and my 3 Donkey Kong games. I sure wish i could get my hands on the original RBI Baseball. I loved that game.

I bought pikachu and played it all the way through. I enjoyed, but found the pace a little slow. My 11 year old has played every pokemon ever, and said this one was essentially a fancy looking rehash, but he still enjoyed it.

There are a lot of weapons and specials you can get by collecting coins in the Run ‘n Gun levels. Right now I have a boomerang type shot & a homing shot. You can go into a level with 2 weapons to switch between. I also got a dash upgrade that lets you teleport...very handy...and 2 Super Arts attacks (saving up 5 supers lets you use a Super Art).

It’s an extremely frustrating game if you’re not used to super hard NES/retro games. You get one life/3 hits per stage. That’s it. You die, you start over.

I’m finding it tough, but not impossible. Just depends how patient of a gamer you are. Def not a kids game unless they like the challenge of hard retro games.

This sounds like a little more of the style that I'm into. I'll definitely check it out!

I have been working through Let's Go Eevee that I bought for my daughter. It is a good remake of the original and I find it fun. I actually like that there aren't random pokemon encounters and you can pick and chose which pokemon you want to try and capture. Breaking up the battling and catching is nice in my book. When I go back and play the GB versions now I just get annoyed with all of the random Rattata battle nonsense.
