Quoted from Spagano314:

Celeste is a great game if anyone is on the fence about it.

hopeing for a physical release!

#590 2 years ago

if you are looking to preorder the collectors edition of Octopath Traveler, there is a live preorder on Game Stop's website. Do not see it anywhere else. Would assume it sells out fairly quickly, being a new RPG from Square Enix and all

waiting has paid off! physical release of Sonic Mania (Sonic Mania Plus) with a bunch of bonus stuff! you can preorder on amazon and get it for $24 shipped! woohoo

https://www.polygon.com/2018/3/16/17131294/sonic-mania-plus-release-date-new-characters-encore-mode

#599 2 years ago
Quoted from timtim:

glad I waited, I have all the sonics on Genesis and Mania on PS4 but I would love a physical copy. might have been my personal favorite of last year

i bought the collectors edition then sold the d/l code lol awaiting the physical release. stoked it paid off.

donkey kong was awesome on wii u but no need to buy and play it again, was hoping for a new game with the ip. The only appeal would be to play it on the go but I hardly ever play my switch anywhere but at home so meh

BoTW is amazing but I love the top down zeldas. A link between worlds on 3ds is one of the best games ever imo. A link to the past is probably my fav game of all time but ALBW is a better game.

#711 2 years ago
Quoted from Frax:

I have no idea. The sailing was tedious. I can confidently say that I was one of the few people that had no issues at all with Toon Link. I guess I kind of fibbed a bit. I finished Spirit Tracks and Phantom Hourglass as well.

spirit tracks is the only (canon) zelda i have not finished... just couldnt stand it

#713 2 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

The DS ones are perhaps the only 2 Zeldas I haven't even played! You can only move around with the stylus in those, right? I think that turned me off from buying them when they came out.

yeah its been a long time since i played them but i think its touch screen controls only.

have you played link between worlds on 3ds? amazing game.

#718 2 years ago
Quoted from Spagano314:

Recently finished Xenoblade Chronicles 2. I would strongly suggest picking it up this weekend. Even though I played Tropical Freeze on the Wii U, I bought it again for the Switch and still think it’s one of the best platformers ever made.

Quoted from V_piscopo:

I second zenoblade 2. Once you fully understand the fighting system it is a super fun game.

if you havent played any others in the series is that a problem?

#720 2 years ago

I was really hoping theyd do an hd re-release of skyward sword on wii u so you could play it without the wii remote control scheme. too bad thatll never happen, but maybe they will port it to switch

#724 2 years ago
Quoted from j_m_:

I don't want to come off as a "debbie downer" but is anyone else getting fed up with amazon shipping collector's editions of games in bubble mailers?
I ordered a couple copies of shantai: the ultimate day one edition" and they arrive all crushed. I wrote a nice little paragraph in the comments section on why I was returning them and had them resend the order. it arrives 2 days later exactly the same way, and in the same condition
I spoke with an amazon customer rep today and explained my frustration and she agreed that amazon.com (us) needs to step it up. amazon.co.jp puts the contents of your order onto a cardboard board that is shrinkwrapped, securing the items, which is then put into a box and shipped. and as such, I have never had an issue with any of my items from halfway around the globe from amazon.co.jp arriving damaged.

i got a crushed amiibo the other day from amazon i ordered because of this. i dont think amazon prime is really worth it anymore for gaming purposes as best buy gamer club is same discount but on all games even after release and amiibos and stuff and its only $20 for two years. prime doesnt give you the discount on collectors edition anymore either. they upped the price as of today aswell to 120 a year. im out when mine expires.

#731 2 years ago

so if you didnt already have the b/w games you can no longer get them? even tho they said the end date was like june 30th or whatever?

#766 2 years ago
Quoted from Tsskinne:

Yeah man screw that owl...that was the hardest thing in the game for me so far, I'm through 5 other bosses and nothing was as hard as that one.

have you gotten to the volcano dome yet? that one took me the longest. the rest were pretty easy, well the under water one was kinda hard. im pretty good at those types of games tho, finished with a bunch of lives and never bought a balloon (or any item)

ive played thru the snes ones so many times, i tend to just find the secrets based on where i think theyd put them ha

#799 2 years ago

Battlechasers Night War finally came out for switch. Got my pre-order copy in last thursday.

pretty sweet game

#801 2 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

I got Megaman Legacy Collection today...so that's 10 more games in my backlog lol ...it'll actually be fun to finally finish ALL of the MM games, just so I can say I did it. I think I've only finished 1 & 8. Maybe 2.
It's annoying that the physical release comes w/ a download code for Collection 2, but the cleaning cloth that comes with it is really nice.

yeah, i didnt pick it up because of the download code for the 2nd set of games, thats lame.

#803 2 years ago
Quoted from FatPanda:

Anyone excited for Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, and Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night?
Curse gets released on Thursday, i think. Will definitely be buying for $10. Ritual release date is TBA from what I can see, but definitely buying that too. Haven't played a good Metroidvania since SotN.

the $10 one looks awesome, might actually have to buy a digital game to play it

#805 2 years ago
Quoted from FatPanda:

I don't believe there will be a physical copy. The game was part of the stretch goals for the kickstarter for Ritual. Looks like an awesome throwback to Castlevania III with the character switching and general gameplay.

yeah my buddy showed me a video of it this past weekend. Pretty much no chance at physical, which is the only instance I will buy digital, but i have yet to buy a digital game on switch.

only way would be if limited run games picked it up, which would be cool!

#809 2 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

I've bought a lot of digital games due to price or being digital only. Like, Conga Master Party is on sale right now for $6. Anything around $10 or less, I really can't complain.
I tend to go physical with the full priced $60 games...partially cuz they're cheaper with Amazon Prime, partially because at $60 I feel like I should have the right to sell it in the future if I don't like it. I just got Hyrule Warriors - and not being sure I'd even like the game, I definitely wanted physical.
Honestly, I wish I could just punch myself enough to just go full digital...because the convenience factor of just having everything on the system is awesome.

best buy gamer club is actually a sweet deal too ($20 for 2 years), same discount as preorder on prime but you can do it at any time and works on special editions and amiibos and shit like that too (like prime used to)

#820 2 years ago

Ahh that's really lame...

#852 2 years ago
Quoted from j_m_:

I wonder if they'll bring out a physical copy of ikaruga for the switch now

fingers crossed but not holding my breath

#857 2 years ago

i posted this in the retro gaming thread earlier today but this thread seems to have some people who might want one, Amazon UK has some NES Classics for preorder and will ship to the US. about $65 US federal reserve notes will get you one.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nintendo-Classic-Mini-Entertainment-Electronic/dp/B01IFJEWTM/ref=sr_1_1?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1527630652&sr=1-1&keywords=Nintendo+Classic+Mini%3A+Nintendo+Entertainment+System+%28Electronic+Games%29

#890 1 year ago

Dark Souls Amiibo is available for pre-order right now on Game Stop,just got one, probably wont last long

#892 1 year ago
Quoted from j_m_:

finally got one. thank you!

awesome!! yeah glad i finally scored one!

#894 1 year ago
Quoted from Rarehero:I'm glad I'm out of my "BUY ALL AMIIBOS" phase, and only buying ones of characters I know/love. I don't even know what Dark Souls is, so I can pass on this guy!

im in the same phase as you but dark souls is one of my fav series ever. I only collect zelda ones for the most part.

#906 1 year ago
Quoted from Nexyss:

I have been using emulators for forever, and I always thought the input lag was BS. I just never noticed it. About a year and a half ago, I was playing through the original Zelda on the Shield TV. I didn't notice any lag, and it played great. I bought an NES with an Everdrive just as I was finishing up the game. Holy crap! The difference was shocking. Just a fraction of a second, but really noticeable the first time you press a button on the real NES. I was amazed at how instantaneous it felt.

Anyone ever play Flashback back in the Genesis, Super NES, Amiga era? How about the Switch remaster of it?

#1004 1 year ago

looks like my patience/stubbornness may pay off for a Celeste physical release!

#1008 1 year ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

Night Trap open pre-orders are up on Limited Run Games, if anyone is interested in that culty piece of 80's schlock. I bit, as I just find it really funny that the most controversial Sega CD game of the 90's is now gonna be on a Nintendo cartridge lol. At the congressional hearings, Howard Lincoln said "Night Trap will never appear on a Nintendo console". Hahahhaa!

i thought about it but then its such a bad game not really worth it lol. the limited edition with the vhs would be cool but not for $70 bucks. it sold out pretty quick anyways

#1010 1 year ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

The standard edition is open pre-order and only $30. I could hang with that. I don't need all the other crap & I can still sell this one when I get bored of it.

yeah, its just not fun and really just a memorization game. if you want to experience the story and see all the scenes then you miss augers and let girls die. if you do everything right you dont get to watch it and see whats going on. neat game but not fun which is what i base my purchases on

#1022 1 year ago

Mario Rabbits & $30 shipped
Battle Chasers Nightwar - $25 shipped
Ittle Dew 2 - $25 shipped

octopath comes out tomorrow, im pretty excited! Have the special edition en route

#1030 1 year ago

i think it might have the makings to be a classic but i guess time will tell. I dont put much (or any) stock in reviews.

#1042 1 year ago

that looks really dope! and there is a physical copy so def on my list! thanks for the heads up

#1044 1 year ago
Quoted from FatPanda:

I usually don't go for third party peripherals, but does anyone have a good alternative to the Pro controller? I can't justify the $65 price tag on those puppies.

dude its so worth it. its the best controller of all time. and ive owned almost every system from every company since the nes...

#1047 1 year ago

you can pre-order the new ridley and wolf amiibos off amazon or best buy as of right meow. if you have time left on your best buy gamer club you get the discount and can get $1 off each for picking up in store.

#1058 1 year ago

Amazon did the same to my yokus island so I cancelled and picked up at Best buy and still get the 20% with the games club (rip)

Pre-ordered the collectors edition and it arrived on launch day from best buy

It's really good, today was the first I got to play and played about 4 hours so far, really digging it

#1065 1 year ago
Quoted from j_m_:

anyone want a sealed copy of wayfarer's edition of octopath traveler? I forgot that I had ordered them from amazon and gamestop so I've got an extra. the outer box has a slight ding in the upper corner where the switch logo is printed
$106 plus shipping (same as what I paid for it
pm me for details

Great deal for someone, scalpers charging way more

#1068 1 year ago

Sonic mania physical edition showed up today, too much awesome on the switch. My fav console since snes

#1073 1 year ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

I already had it digital (since it was digital only grumble grumble) ...so I just bought the $5 upgrade to Plus. I was surprised the icon didn’t change. Slime-San has had a new icon every time it got an update. When you put in the Sonic cart, does the icon say Sonic Mania or Sonic Mania Plus?

Icon on switch just says Sonic Mania.

Here are some pics of what the physical looks like and comes with , has an art book and a reversible cover for retro style art

#1080 1 year ago
Quoted from adol75:

I'm at 24 hours on Octopath Traveller in 4 days, it's not obsessional yet but getting close to it ! That's where the Switch is a fantastic system, Octopath follows me to my couch, to bed, to the bathroom and to "work" (can't say I've done much of that this week!).
It's nothing short from a masterpiece RPG, a tribute to the golden era of the 16 bits machine, while bringing some new and thrilling ideas to the table.
Definitely my killer title of the Switch so far, and of the year all together.

yeah, i havent had much free time to get into it, about 10 hours in, but love it. Gonna play it on the flight to pinburgh for sure. Glad i scored a collectors edition!

#1106 1 year ago

was it docked or straight to the switch?

#1108 1 year ago
Quoted from Pinballerchef:

I’m wondering If the switch can do “on the rails” type light gun games? I know it’s a niche market for these style of games but I find them quite enjoyable....have a collection of them for for my Wii and PS3 respective motion controller set ups. I was a big fan of the NAMCO PS1/PS2 gun games.
I know the SWITCH motion controls are solid with games that have the tech implemented.

this might be up your alley

Thumper

https://www.limitedrungames.com/collections/nintendo/products/switch-limited-run-9-thumper-preorder

not a gun game but its on rails

#1110 1 year ago
Quoted from Pinballerchef:

I’ve researched that game but I’m
Crappy at the rhythm action genre....parappa the rappa was even hard for me.
I like a gun peripheral, a reticule on the screen, and shooting baddies.

im pretty sure post-CRT televisions actual gun games dont exist without extra equipment (like playstation move, wii/wii u sensor bar, etc) , not sure you will find it on the switch anytime soon

#1132 1 year ago
Quoted from thestreetzking:

Did you guys see the limited edition where it comes with the gamecube controller and the 4 player hub! I havent found it on any websites to pre order yet
https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2018/8/8/17664508/super-smash-bros-ultimate-limited-edition-gamecube-controller

pretty dope, wonder what the price point will be?

you can pre order them separate; game for $60, controller for $30 and the adapter for $20

#1151 1 year ago

Best Buy has a bunch of Triple A Switch games on sale (mario,zelda,donkey kong, kirby etc), and if you still have gamer club rewards that stacks, so you can get some $60 games for $35.99

#1171 1 year ago
Quoted from Darscot:

I'm down with the portability but the price is pretty rough, there are so many great handheld and mobile games that are dirt cheap. Pricing on Switch is pretty crazy what I want for my switch is big new Nintendo titles. Everything else is better and cheaper on other platforms. Octopath has me really tempted but $90 CDN for an old school RPG, I just can't do it. Metroid can't come soon enough.
The downside of the lesser horse power hardware is it creates a very real lack of interest on the development side.

Octopath is amazing fwiw

#1180 1 year ago

used to have a red tent with a factory play choice 10 conversion on it, was pretty dope but they take up so much space, especially if you space it to have people play on each side.

#1191 1 year ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Just a heads up, Dead Cells for the Switch is now out and has been getting stellar reviews! I'm going to buy it on the eShop this evening.
"Dead Cells is a rogue-lite, metroidvania inspired, action-platformer. You'll explore a sprawling, ever-changing castle... assuming you’re able to fight your way past its keepers in 2D souls-lite combat. No checkpoints. Kill, die, learn, repeat."
http://www.metacritic.com/game/switch/dead-cells

Physical comes out the 21st (according to Best buy) for those interested in a hard copy

#1193 1 year ago

Amazon has slowly been whittling away the rewards for prime on video games. latest news is no longer 20% off preorders but $10 off select games. def not renewing my prime when it comes up.

Per IGN:
"Amazon Prime's 20% off Preorder Discount Ends August 28

Yes, very sad news indeed for us gamers who want to play games on launch day! Instead, Amazon will offer a $10 discount on "select" game preorders.

If you've had your eye on any preorders that are currently eligible for the 20% discount, place your order by August 28. Your order won't be charged until the game ships and you can cancel anytime. If you don't put in the preorder now, you won't save as much down the road."

#1196 1 year ago
Quoted from jwo825:

If the game is $50 or under you’lol be coming out the same or even better. The rub is going to be which *selected titles* qualify.

they have slowly been taking away things.

was 20% off preorders and two weeks after launch then just pre orders
used to work on collector/special editions then they took it away
used to work on things like amiibos then they took it away

luckily still have a year left on best buy gamer rewards which is 20% new games every day even ontop of any sale.

the "select games" things means they arent gonna give you a sweet deal on a cheaper game imo. all new major releases are $60 out of the gate fwiw

#1202 1 year ago
Quoted from j_m_:

was this released as a physical game? I checked bestbuy on tuesday and could not find it

yes, my best buy has it in stock physical.

Thought Id share this there since most in here seem to enjoy retro games as well.

Every year Fort Collins has an event called "Tour De Fat" run by New Belgium Brewery. Its a bike parade costume party mash up event with beer and music. This years takes place this Saturday.

Every year for the past 5 years I hook up a 13" CRT tv to my bike and an N64 playing Mario Kart 64 so people can play Mario Kart off the back of my bike. It is a pain in the ass to ride with all extra weight on the back but well worth it. I get about 6 hours off it typically. I added a beefier speaker this year so might take my run time down a notch but should still have plenty of juice for the parade.

You can scroll through my instagram ( dizz_co // https://www.instagram.com/dizz_co/) if you want to see more pics of it from previous years (going to be quite a ways down the feed), i always try and find people in mario kart costumes to play it to take pics with. Its just a mess of people and really stop/go so we park in the shade of a tree to let people play and slam a beer.

Here it is, usually just tape the N64 to the top of the tv which I will do before I head out. Hang the controllers from the slots I cut in the side of the CRT casing.

#1229 1 year ago

anyone look into this Star Link game coming out in October?

looks interesting but i dont know if im sold

#1231 1 year ago
Quoted from adol75:

Same here, that's one that I'll wait for a demo version before deciding. It's a Ubisoft game they managed to get Fox because of their never ending support to Nintendo (and their awesome Mario /Rabbids crossover), but it is not a Starfox, and Ubi has some ups and downs with their games.

yeah, not sure how i feel about the ship on the controller stuff and if you have to buy more toys to unlock ships cause thats lame if thats the case.

#1232 1 year ago

ahh, for like the last hour ive had the special edition smash bros ultimate in my cart on best buy and it finally got me to checkout then when i was entering my payment info it said your item has been sold and its out of stock again. super lame. took like 100 refreshes of my cart to get to the payment screen. oh well.

#1235 1 year ago

yeah, i have the gamer unlock still so saves $28 bucks on best buy so ive been trying to snag one from them.

#1237 1 year ago

if anyone also has an xbox one or playstation 4,

at best buy if you buy a 29.99 xb1 or ps4 game you get destiny 2 for free... but if you add a switch game that is 29.99 or up in your cart and add destiny 2 to your cart it makes the price zero.

so, if you want to get a free destiny 2 and looking to pick up a $30+ game you can

#1239 1 year ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

I'm confused - is this a trick to get 2 free Destiny 2's?

no, just a way to get it free with the purchase of a switch game. the ps4 and xb1 games auto put it in your cart for free but since destiny 2 is not on the switch it isnt listed as part of the promotion but it still works if you follow the simple steps outlined in my previous post.

#1243 1 year ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

Oooh oh ohh...gotcha. I'm getting a PS4 tomorrow and want to buy Shadow of the Colossus, and saw the free Destiny 2 deal...although I don't really want Destiny 2 lol

yeah, may as well take it though if youre getting a $30 game, can trade it in for a few bucks towards something at game stop

guessing youre getting the spiderman ps4 that comes out tomorrow?

#1247 1 year ago

if you missed the first run of the Yooka-Laylee Limited Run Games collectors edition, the second batch goes on sale this afternoon, link shows count down.

first batch sold out in less than a minute, got in right away and scored one. The n64 cart is what sold the collectors edition for me.

physical edition of worm w.m.d. coming in 3 days. limited to 4,000 copies
https://superraregames.com/products/srg-6-worms-wmd-switch

been waiting patiently for that one! I played so much Worms Armageddon growing up

#1267 1 year ago
Quoted from j_m_:

received this from nintendo yesterday:
"On 9/18, your Nintendo Switch will be receiving a system update, version 6.0.0. Afterwards, it will no longer be possible to unlink your Nintendo Account from your Nintendo Switch user profile. Prior to this change, you should verify that your Nintendo Account or your child’s Nintendo Account is linked to the correct user profile.
For example, please confirm that the parent’s or legal guardian’s Nintendo Switch user profile is linked to the parent’s or guardian’s Nintendo Account, and that the child’s Nintendo Switch user profile is linked to his or her child account.
By ensuring that your Nintendo Account is linked to the correct user profile, you will be able to appropriately manage your save data, Nintendo Switch Online membership, and Nintendo eShop content."
I'm not quite sure about this. it makes it sound that once you've linked your user account to a system, you can't unlink it. doesn't this mean that if your system dies/breaks or you sell it you will still have it associated with your user id (and in the case of selling it, the new owner will not be able to associate it with their user account?

I would think a system restore would delete the pervious owners info and a new owner would start fresh. They did this with 3ds systems

#1284 1 year ago

hmm, so looks like you have to have the online service to buy those nes controllers. 1 set per account. hopefully they actually have inventory unlike what they did with the launches of the nes/snes classic and most of their amiibos... could be a shit show trying to get a set.

#1314 1 year ago
Quoted from TigerLaw:

Does the switch have any retro games or is Nintendo leaving those for the NES and SNES classics? I’d love to play Earthbound after watching the Angey Video Game Nerd’s review. It’s a SNES game I missed...

SNES minis in stock all over the place now for $60 and it has it

#1318 1 year ago
Quoted from TigerLaw:

Yes, that may be a better match for me. Do they have wireless controllers and headphones? Does the SNES mini look okay on a modern television?

Target and Walmart in my area have them in stock currently. If you have trouble finding one lmk I'll help ya out.

if you paid for the online membership for switch you can "pre-purchase" those nes classic controllers for it. 60 bucks. not a pre-order as you pay now, not when it ships.

got in day 1 just cause im assuming they wont make enough for demand hah.

#1338 1 year ago
Quoted from j_m_:

not nintendo related, but sony just announced their version of the mini, the playstation classic. comes with 20 games and 2 controllers (not dual shock). msrp is 99.99usd, 129.99cad
https://www.playstation.com/en-us/explore/playstation-classic/

kinda lame right now as no complete list of games and it does not come with the ac adapter to power it...

i need to find my friend code and post it so i can whoop up on yall

#1345 1 year ago

their website shows 3 titles each slated for the next few months so i think that is what their status quo will be for additions per month.

Ooh lots of Nicalis games are on sale. Ikaruga (I can’t see the price cuz I bought it already), Tiny Barbarian is awesome esp for $10 (I have it on cart), VVVVV is worth $5 (I have it on 3DS). Knight Terrors is even worth $2!

Nicalis kinda sorta teased a physcial Ikaruga a few weeks back. that would be dope.

Quoted from Spinape:

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m super excited for the next fire emblem. It’s a series not enough people give a fair chance to because it looks boring, but it’s not and has become one of my favs

I love them, I always play with permanent death on.

Quoted from Gov:

I have a physical copy of binding of Isaac and Cave Story+ I will sell for what they are on sale for right now. $25 for both + shipping. I would rather have the digital versions.

shoot, ill bit for $25 bucks for two games i havent played yet, ill send ya a pm

#1397 1 year ago

This looks promising

#1399 1 year ago

This would kind of piss me off i think, i dunno maybe not. Nintendo has always released new versions of their handhelds a million times, but this would feel different.

#1409 1 year ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

I finally got a switch.....not sure why but i did? I have been enjoying playing the original Donkey Kong and Techmo Bowl and a couple of the other old games. Is there any way for me and a friend to team up and play techmo bowl and Donkey Kong together online with each other?
I bought Mario Kart 8 and that seems like decent fun. I also got Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze and that seems really good so far. I also got Splatoon 2 because a friend wanted me to so we could play it online but im just not feeling that game at all, seems stupid AF to me.....maybe im missing something i dont know but its just not fun at all so far to me..
All in all i think i will enjoy it for what it is but it's not a PS4 for sure and a little too pricey imo. Any big games that can be bought on both consoles i will definitely buy them on the PS4. Do you guys like DK Tropical Freeze?

You can play your friends online in those NES games using your friend codes.

DK tropical freeze is awesome but I 100% it on Wii U so I did not rebuy it on switch.

#1419 1 year ago

do you have to play for the online subscription now to play splatoon online?

why i ask is they gave me a free download code for an item or whatever but i dont plan on getting it. i could give it away to someone but if everyone has it cause they had to sign up for online to play it that makes it so everyone gets one anyways ha.

#1428 1 year ago
Quoted from Pinballerchef:

Any big games that can be purchased on both I’ll always go Switch. The fact that you can take them anywhere is a big selling point for me. Plus I enjoy the weight and feel of the Switch pro controller more when it’s in docked mode.

The pro controller is so on point !

I wish it had a head phone jack and a way to turn on the system like ps/xb do tho

#1434 1 year ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

You can turn on the system w Pro or Joy-Cons...just press the home button, it’ll connect to the system in a sec & turn it on.

He’s 100% correct.

Wow I'm a super newb thanks haha !

Oohhhh.....thats right, i forgot about the pie factory! Why in the heck would they had left that out i wonder? I just bought the original Donkey Kong and its way different and much harder than the free version. Well worth 7.99!

wtf is even censored at the top of the castle? its just the tops of the towers as far as I can remember...

edit: or is that the DMD screen animation and something on it is censored? super weird, 100% out. wild world we live in, in 2018 you cant even show the dmd images from a pinball machine from the 90s?

woohoo, was able to pre-order the steelbook smash bros ultimate edition off of best buy with my gamer club discount

#1507 1 year ago

Probably sell out pretty fast but I snagged one.

i looked into it but the shipping was crazy expensive from the sites i found it available on so i bailed on it hah.

#1512 1 year ago

Id love a skyward sword hd port with normal controls.

but year im not re-buying any wii u games on switch. donkey kong was great but already beat it, same with the mario game (which was super easy...)

the one I almost buy every time its on sale is Rayman, that was the game that convinced me to buy a wii u cause it was suppose to be a console exclusive then ubisoft ported it to everything lol but ive held strong and not bought it again (although it is a great party game)

#1522 1 year ago

Anyone play Kirby Star Allies yet?

i'm on the final boss on Octopath after beating all chapter 4's so i can start thinking about future gaming haha

#1527 1 year ago

Yokus Island physical is on sale at Best Buy for 19.99. If you still have gamer pass its $15.99

#1535 1 year ago

demon souls / dark souls games are soo good.

they keep you on your toes at all times!

some of the best games of all time imo

2 wasnt that great, they made it too easy and too many save spots. 3 is a masterpiece. 1 is fantastic as well. Demon souls is prob my fav still.

game doesnt give you anything, you have to earn it all and figure it out as you go. can kind of use your imagination to make up a story as you go as well.

i think calling it a "rouge like" is a disservice cause a lot of people dont like those style games. this is so much more imo. Isnt part of rouge likes randomizing the levels?

The way these games map takes you really far away from the center node only to unlock short cuts and what not back is really great. The environments are just fantastic.

I just finished Octopath and about to jump into Dark Souls when I have gaming time open up.

#1547 1 year ago

Just got an email from Limited Run Games saying they are partnering with Best Buy for certain switch releases including Golf Story and Yooka Laylee

Best Buy is ordering them the same time as when pre-orders are opened up but will have a different cover

Thought a big part of LRG was to get away from traditional retail hah

#1549 1 year ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

Maybe that means they didn't sell as many as they thought they would & they need to "dump" the carts?

said Best Buy ordered 5,000 Yooka Laylees out of the print run under 25,000 units.

#1580 1 year ago

picked up the mario party joy con bundle from best buy. its $100 but with gamerclub it was $80 and had a $20 gift card so figured for $60 bucks get a game and a set of joy cons should be a solid pick up.

hopefully get some people playing over the holidays

Not switch related but I got paper Mario on Wii u for $12 at Walmart today. They stickered them wrong and it rang up as $60 but they gave it to me

#1610 1 year ago

Fyi any cyber Monday deal at best buy your gamer club works and knocks off another 20% (this wasn't the case on Black Friday deals)

Rayman is $12 so finally picked it up

Some pretty sweet deals across all consoles

thanks, I just re-ordered all of the black friday stuff and saved an additional $50. I'll just return the initial order to the store once I receive these

They say its not happening but I hope it does, Switch HD port of Skyward Sword

https://www.ign.com/articles/2018/11/28/eiji-aonuma-seemingly-teases-skyward-sword-for-switch

#1617 1 year ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

There's no way in hell that you will see something like that on the Switch because Nintendo definitely has kids in mind as their target audience. You can probably get it on the PC though.

you quoted the wrong post (skyward sword not peach ball) but you can pre-order that peach ball game on switch on www.play-asia.com, it is coming out for sure on switch, i would think no chance in other markets tho switch is region free.

#1619 1 year ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

Um, Skyward Sword is a Zelda game. You’ll never see it on a PC.
Also kids aren’t their target audience. Watch a Switch commercial. It’s usually 20-somethings.
I’ve been playing the South Park games & LA Noire on my Switch. Not exactly kids stuff. Switch’s target audience: EVERYONE.

i think he meant to quote my post above it about the Peach Ball game

#1624 1 year ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

Ah. Well there’s already those weird Japanese porn games, Gal Gun 2, and DOA Volleyball was just announced. Weird Pervy shit comes out in the US for Switch.

yeah, this one is pinball tho so thought id share it

Quoted from V_piscopo:

Are you playing the fractured butt whole? I've been wondering how good it is? Enlighten us.

reading it where you spelled But as BUTT made me read the title in a totally south park sense of humor dirty way lol. fractured butthole lol

#1629 1 year ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

I thought he meant the pinball game. You will never ever see that on a Nintendo system ever i guarantee it. We can agree to disagree but I still think that Nintendo is geared toward kids mainly. Im not saying thats a bad thing either, but its just how i feel. I am glad that they have started getting some games like Diablo and Dark Souls and stuff though, thats pretty awesome.

Yeah the video is literally the switch trailer lol

#1642 1 year ago

if you are into physical games of digital releases...

super rare games has some copies of N++ left as well as Snake Pass

about $32.5 usd each

made 4,000 copies of each (32% stock left of N++ and 2% of Snake Pass as of this post)

https://superraregames.com/collections/products

I guess they have 1% of stock left of the Mutant Mudds Collection as well, says last 20 copies remain

#1644 1 year ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

Physical is tough when they’re so cheap on the eShop. Mutant Mudds was just $7.50. I’m getting Katamari physical since it’s $30 on eShop and cart.

yeah, they are really aimed at collectors. if you are just in it to play the games digital is probably the way to go.

#1651 1 year ago

Had Ridge Racer 64 on N64 and loved it, bought a PSP on launch day and got Ridge Racer with it.

I think almost every console had a Ridge Racer on launch until after the PS Vita game.

Havent heard a new one from the series since that one tho i could be wrong

I actually got my N64 used from a guy who sold it to buy a PS1 back in the day. 1996 or 97 , would have been 11 or 12. My mom took me to meet the dude, was like a college kid , in a trailer park. got a sweet deal. Found it of off a rudimentary local craigslist type website called swap shop lol. System CIB with a CIB extra controller and mario 64 cib.

#1654 1 year ago
Quoted from djreddog:

Yea it was dope. I used to be heavily involved in QWCTF back in the 90s.
Just recently I setup a LAN with Unreal for me and the 3 kids, awesome stuff.

used to play Quake 2 on the MSN Gaming zone back in the day, was in the clan QGM, quake ghetto mafia lol. my dads office had fast internet cause he worked at the college so i could just wreck kids on dial up

didnt realize an unreal tournament game is on switch! that could be fun!

Quoted from northvibe:

Unreal tourney was amazing. Ma ma ma monster kill!!!!!

i liked the, luuu-da-cris call out

#1656 1 year ago
Quoted from Sinestro:

Optical games are dead. It's no secret Sony and Microsoft want to do away with them. I expect the the next XBOX and the PS5 to be digital only. That will leave Nintendo still selling cartridges. Irony of ironies, the much maligned cartridge will have outlived optical media.
In a quasi-related nugget, CD sales continue to collapse, while vinyl increases. Vinyl will remain a niche, for sure....most people will be streaming, but there will always be a market for people that want to own their music. Vinyl will meet that need for most. There will come a day within the next few year where vinyl will outsell CD.
If you had made either/both of these statements back in the 90's, you'd have been committed!

my buddy mostly only digital downloads for both switch and ps4 and his ISP is now screwing him cause of all the data used because of it lol

#1662 1 year ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Wow, yeah. Data caps are still a big issue for many and the issue will be even more prevalent next generation as games likely shift to using true 4K assets for the XBOX Two (or whatever it will be called lol) and PS5.
I wouldn't be surprised if we see a version of the next XBOX and PS that is a streaming only device, where the games are streamed from MS / Sony servers to their devices, and a second that is a more powerful version that supports physical disks. I also think a version that supports physical disks is likely as a majority of XBOX One and PS4 owners will expect for their current games to be backwards compatible on the next gen systems. With the current generation using an X86 architecture (same as PC's) there's no longer an excuse for next gen systems not to support current gen games if its also X86 based.

it will be interesting to see what the impact of the new "5G" network everyone is trying to roll out will be on speeds and rates.

I remember when 4G LTE came out, L T E meaning Long Term Evolution, and here we are with 5G being the thing lol. It is crazy how many towers are on practically every street corner now and real low to the ground in compassion to other cell towers.

#1666 1 year ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

Dang, Starlink dropped again - it's $30 on Amazon!!! That's worth it just for the rad Starfox Arwing ship!!! ...but the game is actually really cool, too!

I think the whole "toys to life" genre is finally dead, Ubi soft missed the target by like 3 years.

#1697 1 year ago

Okay, so I'm posting this because there is a chance I'm not the only one this daft.

I thought the my Nintendo points you only got if you bought the digital download games

Physical games you get them too, but have to redeem in the first year of the games release, so missed out on a bunch like Mario, Mario kart and Zelda

Anyways, from the home screen press the + button and in the bottom there is a my rewards redemption tab, click it and follow the steps to get your points.

points are not very valuable but over time might be able to at least redeem something worthwhile

#1706 1 year ago

I have nephews that are 6 and 4 getting a switch for Christmas. any good recommendations for this age group game wise?

edit: system bundled with mario kart and sis got rayman for it as well

#1708 1 year ago
Quoted from ralphwiggum:

Mario Kart is a no brainer..... Easy to learn, and both can play at the same time. I have three boys under 12, my challenge is always finding something they can play at the same time. Other popular ones they play at the same time- Infinite Mini Golf, Minecraft(learning curve if they have never played), Rocket League, and Mario party is slower, but super fun.

they got the system bundle with mario kart ... do you think rocket league might be too much?

#1712 1 year ago

right on, didnt know if the mini games would be too much for mario party but doesnt sound like it.

good to know on rocket league as well, i havent played it

#1716 1 year ago
Quoted from Sinestro:

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

whats funny is as a kid i crushed these types of games and cruised thru this without much problem until the last boss fight.

growing up with the insane NES difficulty games gives us a leg up on these youngin's with games that don't even punish you for dieing/losing

i remember the first time i lost in pokemon blue when it came out i thought how lame it was that they just passed out and you dont even really get punished for losing, never got into pokemon probably because of that

#1731 1 year ago

Regarding the Zelda Ornament. All the stores in Colorado just said to call to see if they have stock. My local one did have 1 and they dont hold them for you but you can buy them over the phone and pick up in person, so may be worth a shot if you want one of these or one of the other cool ornaments like the firefly or donkey kong arcade one.

in switch news, i picked up salt and sanctuary last night, havent played yet but look forward to it!

#1734 1 year ago

Salt and Sanctuary is really freaking good, i havent been playing smash because its really fun and I cant put it down.

highly recommend, its like a 2D Dark Souls Metrovania love fest

#1801 1 year ago

anyone pick up the switch gamecube controllers for smash?

are they legit gamecube controllers? Like, can you use them in an og gamecube?

or like the wii gamecube smash controllers had to plug into a wii remote. is there some adapter they use (besides the gamecube port adapter needed)

edit: i watched an unboxing video and it looks like a standard gamecube port on the end of the controller, I wonder if they are "backward" compatible with a real gamecube.

#1803 1 year ago
Quoted from Sinestro:

Yes. Yes. Yes.
You plugged GameCube controllers on the side of the Wii, not into the Wiimotes. Those were the "Classic controllers" you're thinking of.
You just need the GameCube USB adapter for the Switch. It even works with the wireless Wavebird GameCube controllers.
Yes, the 2018 GameCube controllers work in a 2001 GameCube console.

thanks, yeah i have a zelda and mario gamecube controller for wii but needs to plug into a wii remote to work. just wanted to make sure

#1805 1 year ago
Quoted from Sinestro:

If they plug into the wiimote, then they aren't GameCube controllers.

sorry dad. they are "wired fight pads" in the shape of gamecube controllers. hope your panties didnt get too bunched up over that one.

Quoted from Sinestro:

Jesus, dude, I'm trying to help you. I won't make that mistake again.

#1881 1 year ago
Quoted from Jgel:

Just finished Mario Odyssey last night. Pretty good. It's impressive how they can still make a Mario game feel fresh and new. Not sure what to move on to next. Might just wait for the new Mario next week or try the PS4 Spider-Man game?

the "new" mario game is a re-release of the wii u game. its fun but a rather predictable Mario fare, if you are any good at the older ones at all you will breeze thru it with max lives.

so a bit off topic but my buddy and I are streaming retro games on Mondays nights on twitch at 10PM Eastern. Playing on real hardware with real software streamed through my Sony PVM 20M2U with RGB SCART cables for a great looking retro stream.

twitch.tv/pure_retro_co

first session was Zombies Ate My Neighbors on SNES and I just got it uploaded on youtube now:

We might do some switch streaming as well tho; we did a practice run of Mario Party on switch on my personal twitch before we did our first real stream.

Looks cool. Reminds me a lot of ALTTP which I played through a bunch of times. As recently as about a year ago. Speaking of remakes.......

It is a new game in the vain of ALttP in the same general overworld map, It is fantastic! i lend out my 3ds and that game to all my friends who havent gotten a chance to play it and theyve all loved it so far

I only have the "Grip" (No pro controller). Wondering if that'll make a big difference.

Cadence of Hyrule releases today... I purchased last night and preloaded it but it says it's not available to play yet...

Anyone else have this issue or is this normal for Nintendo downloaded games on release day?

Quoted from Who-Dey:

The free game that is on the switch is the dame game that was on the NES right? Did you ever beat Tyson? Hes a MF!

you get the Mr Dream version and not the Tyson version. only way to play tyson is emulation or an NES
