I have no idea why I waited so long to get a flip grip. So worth 12 bucks

Quoted from Agent_Hero:

Does anyone give out friend codes for Animal Crossing? I just started the game and want to catalog items. I guess the only helpful thing I can do is water your flowers while I'm there.

You can add me - I have a lot of random shit, let me know what ya need!

Looks perfect for pinball. Do you have a link for that?

#3205 75 days ago

Yep and it's great for the pinball games, except stern arcade doesn't flip the right way, at least that's what I've heard.
The fx3 and demon's tilt are great.

I like this game room I saw on Reddit:
acmc (resized).jpg

Two exciting things happened for me in this first week of me playing--I saw and wished on two shooting stars last night (good for me reading up on those and how you're supposed to press A when you see them, not just snap a screenshot! Also, the only item I really wanted from Gulliver's task reward was the pyramid, which is the prize I got! I think there are 93 randomly-generated possible prizes. Now if only those balloons would drop an arcade game for me.

#3211 70 days ago

So after doing the Ori and The Blind Forest demo, I bought the game.

I'm 46 and have a lot of platformer games under my belt. Yikes, this one is hardcore on the Normal setting. I've also learned, mostly from losing in games against my son, that my reflexes are not what they used to be. That is a hindrance in this game.

But it's gorgeous looking, the musical score is outstanding, and most importantly for this type of game...the controls are extremely tight. At least if I mess up I know it's not a controls issue.

I suspect it's on the shorter side but worth the $20. Hopefully Will of the Wisps will be ported as the sequel.

#3212 70 days ago

Ori is such a good game. I would check out Hollow Knight and Celeste if you haven’t already.

Guys,

Who makes the best screen protector for the Switch Lite?
My nephew is staying with us through the pandemic and we bought him one for his birthday next week.

Thanks,
Mike

#3215 68 days ago

Bought this one for my regular switch and it's great. Maybe they have one for the lite as well?

How does one acquire such a thing? I don't have AC myself, but my girlfriend does, and she was very interested.

#3217 68 days ago
Quoted from Gornkleschnitzer:

I think you have to get X far into the game and have the house, stores etc unlocked and upgraded aka playing the game for 2-3 weeks, and then things like that are purchase or buildable.

Thats what I got for my normal switch and would recommend. I would assume they make switch lite versions.

I have the protectors linked here for my switch and switch lite. They work great and are easy to install. I also got the clear plastic holder for the switch lite because my hands are far too big for the console.

A lot of times I throw the switch lite on a stand and use a generic pro controller for gameplay.

Sometimes they fall out of trees or balloons. It’s totally random. I haven’t gotten any on my island, but my friends get them & send them to me cuz they know lol

Anyone who likes Overcooked should check out Moving Out. It's a co-op game where you're a moving crew who goes to different buildings and loads up a truck. Some items require 2 people to move. There's a demo. My family is enjoying it.

There's another game that might be similar called Good Job! Basically, you're an office employee that has to perform "mundane" tasks like moving furniture, but trying to find the most creative way to do it in the quickest time, regardless of how much damage you cause. It's on my wishlist right now, but I'd like to get it down the road sometime.

Been loving streets of rage 4, and it plays wonderfully on the switch.

UGHHHHHHHH my LRG physical needs to ship!!! i'm sooooo excited to play this. I have countless hours of SoR2 and 3 on genesis growing up. I remember being hyped for fighting force on ps1 and I also have the final fight arcade1up. However SoR4 has coop online...soooo pumped. I just wish it was cross platform coop

#3228 68 days ago

Any interest in setting up a Pinside Turnip exchange for Animal Crossing?

You'll feel right at home, my two buddies that lived on my street and I played the hell out of them growing up.

I still play them now lol spent so much time trying to beat 3.

Was pretty cool cause the one friend I still talk to and we both collect games. We got to play it online together, a little different than when I was 7 but fun and kind of nostalgic.

I'm trending for a big spike on Friday (ET) and will definitely post here if/when that occurs.

Otherwise, https://turnips.exchange/ is pretty useful and not nearly as intimidating as it seems. As long as you're not dead set on getting the highest possible price, you can find plenty of reasonable people who ask you to tip whatever's fair.

LRG does too many titles that should just come out normally day-and-date with digital. I didn’t have patience to wait for SOR4...and it was only $20 & wanted to support the developer & start playing! No regrets, it’s incredible.

Ya was meaning to buy it on x1 but it’s just packed away while the basement remodel happens but not sure how long I can wait...

Cool! I was hoping Zen would release a Pinball Labo. That would be awesome to make a cardboard pinball cabinet for Switch!

I posted this a little while ago.. kind of cool..

Paper Mario: The Origami King announced for Switch with a July 17th release. I’ve enjoyed other PM titles; this one is definitely on my buy list.

I played PM: The 1000 yr door on GC and loved it. This looks like more action/platformer and less RPG though?

the last two the battle system was garbage and i feel they purposefully only showed like 1.5 sec of the battle system in the trailer... they also dont reveal this game until really close to its release date. i just have a bad feeling about it, hopefully im wrong

I didn't own a Wii or WiiU. Was there anything else between the GC and the Switch? I don't know much about any PM games since then. I really loved the aesthetic and the turned based "timing" action of the 1000 Yr Door. I usually wait for reviews to pop up before buying most games anyway.

there are two for the 3ds as well that are pretty bad

My daughter asked if we could get Animal Crossing. After reading up on it I concluded that the game made no sense and seemed pointless.

But, whatever.

After 4 days I'm hooked on the damn thing. Daughter has her own island, as do I. My son is a resident on mine.

The designers understand well how to create a cycle of rewards in carefully measured doses.

It's exactly the oddity and the uniqueness of Animal Crossing. A game with no purpose, no story and no end that has hooked up a huge number of people.

I have to buy a second switch, my 2 kids are totally into it!

I've been playing Animal Crossing for almost 20 years. The latest Switch version is amazing. AC and Mario Odyssey are my two favorite video games.

I've collected 4 out of the 5 pinball machines for my game room!

My mother-in-law has never played a video game in her life. She basically plays Animal Crossing 24/7 now...so much that her Switch Lite died. While it’s getting repaired, she got another Switch Lite...so when she gets the other one back, she can have two islands lol

#3244 54 days ago

I've been playing this, it's really good imo. Great controls, simple concept, never played anything like it.

A friend of mine was able to secure a Switch for me. I plan on picking it up in a week or two. I have been out of the video game fold since the Wii. Wanted to get a Switch so my family can play Mario Kart. During the quarantine my kids have really enjoyed the Mario Karts from the Snes to the Wii.

Each Joy Con is considered a controller, correct? I see the Joy Cons have reliability issues? Should I buy a few pro controllers? Screen protector?

Any recommendations for family/kid friendly games?

Thanks!

glass screen protector. at least 1 pro controller if you want to seriously game, or want to game docked.

Yes pretty much all the joy cons will have that drift issue sooner or later. Supposedly Nintendo now fixed them for free, but post virus closing they have a looping wait list.
I, like many others, ended up buying a bunch of replacement sticks on Amazon (15$ a pair) and I replace them myself. It's a bit tedious at first but I got used to it after replacing more than I hoped for.

Buying pro controllers is an option but some multiplayer games (Mario Party typically) only work with joy cons, so one way or another you should have 4 joy cons.

And yes you should also put a screen protector, the dock is tight and you will use it a lot, there's a risk of scratching the screen everytime you take it in and out of the dock.

Truth is it's a great game system but there are a lot of engineering mistakes, I'm not confident we'll still be able to play the switch in 20 years.

Your dock is tight? mm, even with my screen protector, the dock/switch seem fine. I have a 1st release unit.

I would agree on the joycons. I don't have any spare sets yet, but I never take them off my unit. The only time I remember was playing snipper clips with my wife at launch. I'll probably get another set to have lay around for party games though. OR if they finally get some cool shooter games rolling out.

The pro controller is the only way to play serious games. Using the joycons in a grip, does not do it for me. I dislike the joysticks on it.
