I'm almost about to beat the main story. But there are SO many moons to go back and find....freaking soooo good. However I need to get much better at the jump, hat, dive, hat thing long jumps. I am not that talented yet.

#105 2 years ago
Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

Dang.
I'll probably get one anyway, we just have so much money in the Wii U setup, I hate to have to buy a bunch of joy cons and accessories again.

I feel you. My wiiu is still connected to the main tv and I have new games :/

#111 2 years ago
Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

Cool, thanks for the info! We have a lot of the pro controllers for the wii u at the moment, we all like playing with those.
How do you normally configure yours? With the grip in the middle of left and right joycons?

I game a TON with the switch in handheld mode (joy cons attached to switch) It isn't the most comfy but it reminds me of the wiiu gamepad, so my wife can watch tv.
When I have full access to the tv, the PRO controller IS THE BEST!
When I take my switch to work and fight/race my coworkers, we just pop the joycons off and play that way, with 1 person on a pro controller. I still should get a 2nd set of joycons....but haven't done so yet.

#118 2 years ago

someone showed joycon use is fairly spot on to a wiimote...soo there are tons of things that could be done!

#151 2 years ago

Hd rumble must be similar to the iPhone 7/8 vibrate as it is via a speaker thinger.

#159 2 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

Dang! Rayman at $20 is a steal. I'm not gonna wait in line - but if I can show up later in the day and get 1-2 Switch & Bomberman for $24 each, I'll buy them.

I was hoping they'd be like that online...but yeah. I'm not going to the store unless it was that evening after the crazies are done

#163 2 years ago
Quoted from V_piscopo:

Is 1-2 switch actually fun?

Yes. HOWEVER. It is a party game. A Great party game. Single player....meh
Snipper clips is also a great coop fun game.

#183 2 years ago

I’m gonna go snag doom tomorrow to have a cool FPS and show support for more good games ported! Wolf2 soon too!

I️ think I️ just hit 450? Moons about. I’ll try to 100% so it will be a bit and I️ may ask for the guide for Xmas to help

#192 2 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

If you can't find any more moons you can give Hint Toad 50 coins or use an Amiibo to mark a Moon spot on the map for you....although there are a few marked spots that have me stumped at the moment!

Quoted from ArcadiusMaximus:

Apparently there are 900 moons so get to it !

Yeah, I hit toad up and the parrot but there are many that are very hard to find, or on other worlds. The guide is my backup for not finding those last ones.

Just hit ~550 moons! there is a little surprise at 500

#194 2 years ago
Quoted from Avi8er:

I'm thinking of buying a switch for SMO and Splatoon 2. Seems like both of those games are a ton of fun.

There are even more really fun games.

Zelda, tons of indie games, and even more coming out this month!

#205 2 years ago
Quoted from Gov:

Do not overlook Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. Probably my overall favorite game on the system, and yes that includes BotW and SMO.

It should be on sale on BF!

Quoted from Rarehero:

My brain just glazes over. I just wanna run and shoot and do all the action in real time. I don't get turn based stuff at all.

You need doom!

#207 2 years ago

I️ figured since you wanted a run n gun. It is a fast paced run shooter. Good game to tide you over until Metroid.

Otherwise wolf2 is coming next month? I forgot when.

#213 2 years ago
Quoted from Frax:

Getting there. About to just blow through it because there doesn't seem to be any benefit whatsoever to collecting more than the needed number up front.

There really isn’t, just get enough to move on and continue forward. 5th world? Mmm you got a lot of game left!

There are hidden moons that are in plain sight and some are super hidden. I love it. I crushed some more out last night in the sand kingdom. Man I’m using a guide but I never would of found a handful without. Pretty fun even using a guide!

#215 2 years ago
Quoted from Frax:

Not using a guide until I absolutely have to.
Still in shock that someone already 100%'ed this in one sitting, and it was only 17 hours and 20 minutes.

The speed runners probably can beat it in 30-40 min now so I could see that once they know where all the moons are.

There are so many moons that you just idk how you’d find them. If you don’t use the guide, just make sure to go everywhere and inspect everything

#219 2 years ago
Quoted from Frax:

Someone did? I mean...even at 135, we've found moons in the most retarded places imaginable. I know where one is that I just *CAN'T* GET TO because I'm not good enough with manipulating the hat yet to cross a giant poison pit.. I can't see it, but I know it's over there because:
Every internal moon location has two moons, and the only place I haven't been to, is the far side of that one room. I made it across the middle room on a few attempts, but this other one basically requires me to make that perfect jump series three times to get across? FML.
Literally: Look EVERYWHERE, even places you think should be impossible to go. I haven't found any benefit to it YET, but like for example...(ERMAGERD MINOR SPOILERS HERE) when you go back to the very first tutorial stage, and can take over the paratroopa goombas, you can actually APPARENTLY fly *under* the hats that are down in the mist. I've only checked one so far, no idea if there's a hidden moon under one of the others, but hey...now I have to go check them all. >_<;;

The guide book shows them all, and places like ign and others are getting video/walk throughs on how to.

A handful of them took me 20+ tries. I’m enjoying the challenge! Almost 100% wood kingdom then continuing the next to 100%.

Tip: shaking the controller can do moves/abilities not able to be done by just buttons.

#222 2 years ago

590 moons!!! Almost to the magical 600!!!!

The game only gets harder the more you complete.....

Tip of the day. Collect as many coins as you can! They come in useful dying and buying stuff

#225 2 years ago
Quoted from insx:

Getting all the moons is going to be a massive chore. Sorry, I like the game but I can't see why everyone thinks it's so perfect. Ah well, I'll just buy moons 10 at a time in the shop.

those moons don't mark them off your list though. You just need those after you collect every one, to meet the 999 task

#228 2 years ago
Quoted from insx:

but they do power up the Odyssey.

Quoted from Gov:

you do what is fun for you.

Yup, whatever allows you to enjoy the game.

#240 2 years ago
Quoted from winteriscoming:

Anyone playing it multi-player?
I'm not enjoying multi-player as much as I had hoped. That alone lowers it from a perfect score for me. I don't know. Maybe I went into it with the wrong expectations of a robust 2-player experience. After playing as the hat last night, I just found myself frustrated trying to direct my wife where to go with Mario. I might as well just watch her play. A few times I tried directing the camera and she walked Mario right off a cliff...
Super Mario 3D World had some good multi-player, but was way too easy.
The best multi-player Mario seems to be the New Super Mario Bros series.

Mario's coop. mmm. Nintendo is good at throwing coop into games for families and playing with kids. It will not be the "BEST" way to play frustration free, however it is a great way to enjoy the game with someone. Similar to Galaxy series, but Odysseys is more involved. If you want a real coop game, get snipper clips, overcooked, 1-2 switch, mario kart, bomberman or even rayman. There are tons of indie games on the eshop with good/decent coop.

NSMB/3dmw was good as you had your own players...the use of the cap can be pretty hard as coop.

#251 2 years ago
Quoted from Frax:

Oh, see, I still only have the 2 it came with. I didn't know you could DO that. I needed to buy an extra set for Bomberman anyways, so there's another reason! That makes WAY more sense LMFAO.

do you have a pro controller yet..I'd recommend that over a 2nd set of joycons, UNLESS you are going to do the 1-2 switch stuff a lot.

EDIT:
OMG people are playing mario with 1 joycon....no wonder someone didn't like it, THAT WOULD BE HORRIBLE

#257 2 years ago

Because the switch is a new experience with HDrumble etc. Wiimotes would not allow the full switch experience. ANd hey you got to use wiimotes on 2 consoles plus a pc...that is pretty good, NO other (recent, ps1/ps2) console allowed controllers from their older unit to the new one.

#263 2 years ago
Quoted from Frax:

lulwut....
I use the 360 controller on my PC. I never use a wiimote on the pc (Yeah, I know it's bluetooth, but who gives a f...)
I mean...is Ninty selling replacement battery packs for Joycons yet? No? Then as far as I'm concerned, the Wiimote is a more viable longterm product. Battery wear is real, and things without user-replaceable batteries SUCK. Joycons did everything else right, but ultimately, they're going to be just as usefully limited as PS4 controllers are, and that's garbage.....especially for dingy games that won't really make use of rumble.
I don't give two craps about 'the full experience' past playing a game for the very first time. Beyond that...just working is fine with me. Which reminds me. I need to hook up my Gamecube adapter and see if I can use GC controllers on Bomberman LOL.
Arguing that because something is the norm, that's the way things should be is......well....dumb.

Battery replacement for the joycon doesn't seem that bad. Once opened they are actually pretty easy to work on.

You know....they don't cater to us DIY, cheap folk that like to resuse things Also Nintendo is a Japanese company...they work very differently then say Xbox/us. They provide you the way they WANT you play/experience, you have to go their way or nothing. All the gaming companies make us buy crap for every console and charge 60 for controllers etc...but we keep paying Hey I saw target may of had some joycon sets on clearance....maybe a fluke though.

Quoted from winteriscoming:

No other console had me purchasing so many freakin' different options! That's a gripe of mine with Nintendo that's going to carry forward into Switch: too many controller options
I shouldn't complain, though. Switch is super well priced for what it is and comes with the possibility for 2-player gameplay right out of the box.
Heck, it's dumb that I'll plop down $400 for a mere piece of a pinball machine, but a whole console experience with a few games for that same price and I'm left hesitant to spend more on extras!

did you get all the colored joycons? those stupid things have me wanting all the colors. :-p Neon yellow looks sooooo goooooood

#270 2 years ago
Quoted from winteriscoming:

I haven't looked into the other colors. I specifically buy the switch with blue and red, passing on the Mario bundle since it just had red.
Ugh... but once you have more than 2 joycons, how do you keep all this stuff charged?

Quoted from V_piscopo:

It's just a USB C cable you can charge it in the wall with a USB charger for your phone if you like. I try to keep one charging from the system at all times and charge the other one in the wall if need be. But I mostly play alone.

Yeah you have to swap them onto the switch while docked OR get a joycon charging dock.

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/powera-joy-con-charging-dock-for-nintendo-switch-black/5729904.p?skuId=5729904&cmp=RMX&extStoreId=43&ref=212&loc=1&ksid=1f44c0eb-2105-4e0e-a63e-08698c673e19&ksprof_id=15&ksaffcode=pg236067&ksdevice=c&lsft=ref:212,loc:2

I guess amazon even has charging hand grip things
amazon.com link »

However....BE WARNED, the non licensed docks for the switch have been breaking switches. So you are taking a big chance with non licensed things dealing with power on this console.

#277 2 years ago
Quoted from timtim:

anyone else get rocket league for switch?
I never played it on ps4 since i don't have PSPlus but damn that game is fun. ]
I suck but I'm getting the hang of it, I did get back to back goals last night. I was pumping my fist like an idiot last night, almost like if i really did something meaningful, glad my wife had work early and was already asleep.
the game does take me back to Excitebike 64's Soccer mode. What a underrated game when it came out... not sure if its aged well at all.

I'm going to snag RL, but I think i'll wait until after xmas to see if I get it as a kid. I just got doom and need to calm down with the number of games I keep buying

EDIT: see, and now Worms WMD comes out Nov 27!!!

#280 2 years ago

I’m hearing Rocket league has some great online play with friends (menu and function wise)

#304 2 years ago
Quoted from finman2000:

Getting my 10 year old daughter a Switch for Christmas. Looking for game recommendations? I figured Super Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart would be the first two games I would buy. Not sure what to get after that? Zelda, or is that too much for a 10 year old?

1-2 switch may be a fun family game, of for her friends.

See how she likes Mario and get Zelda based off that?

#312 2 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

I snagged 1-2 Switch and Bomberman from BB. Great prices on those two. Was tempted to get Mario/Rabbids for $30 at WM....but I still don't think I'll come around on that genre and have so much to play already.

Oh Walmart was the only place that had to for $30... dang. It is a great game, I think I’ll snag it for my stocking

#330 2 years ago
Quoted from enjoyvelvet:

Switch owners...family of four (2 adults and 2 kids age 7 and 9)...what accessories/controllers are best? Pro controllers? Game suggestions?

I personally would do, 2 pro controllers and 2 sets of joycons. But it will also depend on what kind of games you guys usually play.

They make base stations for joycon charging, I think nyko makes one.

Games...like all of them
Mario kart
Mario Odyssey
1-2 switch (good family fun game)
snipper clips deluxe (good family/coop fun game)
zelda - single player experience
bomberman

tons of other games from indie to big titles like pokentourny and doom etc.

#333 2 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

Just picked up Switch for kids and new X box X for me. WWII is waiting.

HA! nice! I got WW2 for x1 too on BF. Only played 15 min of campaign but it plays soooo much more realistic than the old "arcade" cods

Quoted from Jam_Burglar:

The nice thing is that people seem to be able to actually buy a switch. All the availability problems in the past have been annoying.

Yeah! There has been stock at my BB and target for a month or so now. Tons were there on BF.

#337 2 years ago
Quoted from tacshose:

I’m thinking of getting a 4K oled tv, but concerned how the switch looks on it…anyone know?

It’s 1080p, so it would depend how your tv up scales or not. Should be fine.

#355 2 years ago

Ya! Pinball fx and the stern pinball arcade! I’ll snag em for some on the go play that is much better than a cell phone.

The other game I just found out about is riptide renegade is on switch!!!!!

1 week later
#361 2 years ago

Switch gets:

Bayonetta 1
Bayonetta 2
AND
Bayonetta 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#365 2 years ago

no wii sports like game yet, but 1-2 switch is a fun sort of activity game.

Yes there are a couple lego games on switch! those are worth it!

#367 2 years ago
Quoted from timtim:

bayonetta 3 such good news. Bayo2 was one of the few highlights of being a wii u owner

I love that they are taking great wiiu games and bringing them over plus a new bad ass exclusive!!! So good! This console is so good but keeps getting better

#368 2 years ago

Cool pinball like game coming!

#370 2 years ago
Quoted from insx:

Talking of which, Pinball FX3 is out on the Switch and you can get 3 free tables at the moment. It has a very nice portrait mode.

3! I only see two :/

EDIT: there are three. Sourcerers lair was dark purple and I didn’t see it in the dark

#371 2 years ago

Pbfx3 and tpa stern are both in the Eshop! Stern app is free but tables are paid.

#373 2 years ago

My buddy just got me mario rabbids kingdom for xmas....this game is fun and I'm not a big turn based xcom person..but they just make it so easy to pickup and learn. The only thing that annoyed me was the intro movie being like 40 min long and I couldn't skip it.

#381 2 years ago

Omg they have horizontal support.... freaking sweet!!! I can’t wait to see people make vpin mini cabs to hold their switch!

image (resized).jpg

#385 2 years ago
Quoted from insx:

I hope it's just coincidence, but since I started playing that, I've had a lot of problems with my joycons freezing or going crazy. It was the same with another pair so it's the consoles problem.

Hmm, all is well with mine. Did you call Nintendo to ask about a joycon fix? There were antenna issues on many.

#387 2 years ago

Yes! need to make sure your joycons all got the firmware update (docking to switch). But if there are still issues, they will repair them. Just give them a call! They have SUPER AWESOME support.

#402 2 years ago

hell ya tommy. I have played splatoon since its original release. 2 is fun and has lots of enhancements over 1.

#409 2 years ago

I concur, it is a good game....but I just got it on wiiu this past summer! AHHHHHHH

Now I debate RL on physical or digital.... love collecting carts but.....so cheap digital

#417 2 years ago

I just bought riptide renegade as it’s 50% off, and I’m a big fan of vector unit and Hydro thunder. So far the game is pretty good, obviously not a boat racing but still plays nice, gets pretty hard!

#421 2 years ago
Quoted from Groo:

So when I tested the portrait mode when the switch was docked, it became clear what I needed to do with that extra TV I had sitting in my basement. Mounted the TV and got an extra switch dock for pinball purposes.

Oh sweet!!! I’ll have to make sure my tv in the gameroom can rotate!

#422 2 years ago
Quoted from Gov:

A new Waverace game from Nintendo would be very welcome. The original Gamecube game still holds up pretty well as far as playability.

I’m waiting for aqua moto racing utopia!

The same dev has a snowmobile game too. I hope we get all the refreshes!

#430 2 years ago

splatoon 1 had vs mod offline but it was weak imo. The switch I don’t think has the power for split player I don’t think. However it should have offline multiplayer but everyone needs their own switch

#433 2 years ago
Quoted from RVApinballer:

I've been playing Mario Rabbids Kingdom Battle and really enjoying it! Didn't think it'd be my kind of game but it's grown on me and charmed me a lot. If you think it could interest you give it a chance you'd be surprised how entertaining and addicting it is.

me too! Unlike xcom or jagged alliance, they make it easier to play but with strategy!

#447 2 years ago

Gonna snag RL physical today for my trip to CES... the physical should have all the DLC in, so that is nice.

#455 2 years ago

zelda easy? wtf.... Those guardian things kicked the @#$# out of me.

#461 2 years ago
Quoted from Nexyss:

Anything that can be defeated with a shield can't be too tough.

you guys use shields? I just run around with a stick :-p

Quoted from ENDOFLINE:

has anyone played DOOM on the switch yet? this game could be so good for "on the go" mayhem

I have DOOM. Game is great, except in handheld mode the joycons are uncomfy as F. The joystick(s) slide they don't rotate and there is no grip so your hands cramp and they fatigue with the flat back. I need to play more with my pro controller....

#486 2 years ago

Crap, there are still devs making wii games.

Not everyone in gaming wants to play games you only see on PS4/x1

BF2 takes how long to load and get into a game?! 30 min? A switch game is fast, can play quick and pause, pick up later. Now we don’t have the same games here but I’m not into those anymore, no time. The good casual games on switch have made me start gaming again

#489 2 years ago
Quoted from taylor34:

The irony is that BF2 probably takes like double what the switch base capacity can hold by itself, has multiplayer that their system wouldn't be able to support, and requires graphics settings that their system can't support. It's like me telling someone "look how fast my DOS games load suckers!".
I love mine for portability. That's it. If it wasn't portable, then it wouldn't get played very much honestly. But it's super handy when waiting on kid events for an hour.

Sure, everyone likes different games. But I’ve been playing wiiu and switch over my x1 for years now. The games on Nintendo appeal to me so much more these days. Destiny just requires so much bs and time, I don’t have that anymore to dedicate.

#500 2 years ago
Quoted from Darscot:

What did you guys think of Nintendo Direct?

Mario £{?{>~*~ tennis!!!!!!!! Yes!!!!
Huyrule warriors
Kirby
Dark souls
Odyssey update

Did you see Kirby has 4 player and the display looks like smash? It caught me off guard and I had to go back.

Not a huge direct but a nice direct that I’m excited for

#508 2 years ago
Quoted from JJHLH:

The HORI Nintendo Switch Real Arcade Pro V Hayabusa Fight Stick has gotten excellent reviews.

This one?

868DAAD7-3365-4E42-A9DA-5B230E5AD2CF (resized).jpeg

#510 2 years ago
Quoted from JJHLH:

Yes, that’s it. It’s also officially licensed by Nintendo.

Nice! They aren’t selling at ces but it looks huge and nice

#514 2 years ago

I’m gonna put some back spin on your ball

#524 2 years ago
Quoted from Tsskinne:

Has anyone out here tried wwe2k18?

Main issues are slow load times, lots of bugs, frame rate issues and “unplayable” in multiman matches. Blind squirrel mentioned releasing a patch, but until that comes, I would suggest waiting.

#527 2 years ago
Quoted from Pinballerchef:

That's a sweet set up working for EA....they do well with their sports franchises. Have you heard any rumblings of getting a NHL game ported over to the Switch?? That may be tougher than a soccer game but that'd be fun online and portable. I'd love something pixelated from there 90's era.
Maybe Super Blood Hockey will makes its way over?!

Wasn’t Old Time Hockey supposed to come out on switch?

#534 2 years ago
Quoted from Groo:

I am just now getting back into Zelda. I can't for the life of me figure out why I stopped playing it last year in the middle of the first dungeon...

I played 6 ish hours on wiiu, then got the switch...JUST picking it up on the switch...I also forgot how awesome this game was

#544 2 years ago
Quoted from Groo:

Now I remember, the constant Game Over screen and dungeon reset so I have to run to the top of the beast and move the switches again. The boss fight in there was like it was from Dark Souls or something. Had to leave to try to find some better gear and more hearts.

Ha! Well now you can have dark souls soon! Crush your soul :/

#546 2 years ago

0.o Nintendo just threw some features out of no where!!!! This is so cool!!!!

Man I love that they are doing things out of the normal "console" box.

#550 2 years ago

Rocket league physical is out today!

#552 2 years ago
Quoted from enjoyvelvet:

I am not telling my kids about this. Can you imagine the amount of cardboard switch thingys all over the house? And how many times you'd say "the dog ate my labo"

Haha yeah. My dog sometimes chews cardboard but I know he would chew these as I love them

1 week later
#554 2 years ago
Quoted from V_piscopo:

Finally beat Mario + rabbits. What a great game! Anyone who is on the fence about buying it. DONT BE. Now back to Zelda, just beat my first divine beast dungon!

It is a GREAT game! fun and easy to pickup and play.

I started zelda on wiiu 6-8 hours...but have moved to the switch. bought zelda and haven't touched it until early this Jan on a plane...freaking forgot how GREAT this game is. I have to crush through all the stuff I've already done but oh man it is so full of things to do and explore. Reminds me of the feeling when playing GTA3 for the first time.

#561 2 years ago

Well all the switch/nintendo haters can suck it. Nintendo's latest financials came out and this thing is selling like crazy. Over a million units sold over wiiu's entire life. Splatoon 2 has already sold as many as wiiu splatoon. On and on, it is a great hit. THe zelda numbers were lower than I thought but I think this proves the switch is here to stay and be a great console for them.

Now for Bayo 1 and 2 soon

2 weeks later
#570 2 years ago
Quoted from pin2d:

Finally pulled the trigger today and went and bought a Switch and Mario Odyssey! I’m on my way Peach!

Nice! You’ll love it

I grabbed Rocket league last week....forgot bayonetta came out the other day man, I can’t keep up!

I have started Zelda and am crushing through that when I get time. Such a good game, but those a hole guadians are mean.

1 week later
#572 2 years ago
Quoted from WyseGuy:

My brother was debating buying one. I said “get it, the guys on Pinside like it, and they are pinball guys so they know good shit.”
He bought it last night. Most fun I’ve had playing a console since I was 11 and Nintendo 64 came out. Good call guys!

yay! what game(s) did he get?

#575 2 years ago
Quoted from WyseGuy:

Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart. Glad he lives across the street from me. I’ll pry grab a couple games this week. Suggestions?

depends if you want coop/multiplayer or single.

mario +rabbids kingdom battle
overcooked
splatoon 2
Doom
Bayonetta 1/2
rocket league
splunker

sooooo many more good games.

Man I have a stack of games at home and haven't played most...but know they are good.

Kirby comes out in March and mario tennis is rumored for june!

#579 2 years ago
Quoted from WyseGuy:

We still play heated games of Mario Tennis on N64, so we were pumped when we saw the Mario Tennis clips for Switch earlier this week.

I totoally forgot, If you like fighting games, ARMS, is freaking great!

#581 2 years ago

Yeah...... I’ve bought way too many. 1-2 switch is a fun party game if you get it cheap. Like $20 or less?

Pro to buying physical is amazon and B.B. offer 20% off. The con is that eshop purchases get more gold coins vs physical games. If you are into those “perks” of 100 gold coins == $1 off eshop.

#605 2 years ago

Most likely, the VC will come with the online package. They had talked about having VC titles when you paid for the yearly online.

#607 2 years ago
Quoted from chippe01:

So if you have to pay for online access, do you then also have to pay for the games?

Which games?

Ok so it is similar to Xbox and ps. You pay a online fee to get online playing. You buy a game, like splatoon 2 or smash and can play online.

The “free/included” games are these, classic games with online functionality added. Here it is from Nintendo

#623 2 years ago

Just played Totan on switch TPA. Almost unplayable. I have it in docked mode, flipper lag is horrible, bad lag when ball is on the ramps. They better have some patches to smooth this up.

#625 2 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

It’s probably your TV. Make sure you’re in a “fast” or “game” mode. Turn off smooth-o-vision or any other post-processing and you’ll see that lag minimized. Plays fine on mine docked.

Ha! You reminded me of that. I’ll have to check that vs handheld, I did think it was odd as the stern one is fine... but when the ball returns on the clear ramps, ugh it’s laggy :/

Hahah you hijack a shipping box

#667 2 years ago
Quoted from parabol420:

What kind of home Wi-Fi are you running? The switch has support for all the major versions: IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac. Why doesn't yours work?

I was going to say the same. If your xbox or ps4 can go online, the switch should have no issue, unless it is too far from the router.

Quoted from taylor34:

I haven't picked up GoW yet but want to, it sounds pretty good. The problem I have currently with the Switch is that other than portability, it doesn't offer anything else for me. I own Mario, Zelda, Mario Kart, Arms, Splatoon 2, etc but the online is awful compared to the Xbox plus it's missing all the best online games (Overwatch, Fortnite, Pubg, etc). So the key feature would be playing online outside of your house but it doesn't have the games I'd want to play. Nintendo's network doesn't even work with my home internet from AT&T, I have to play off a mobile hotspot, super annoying.
And like Rare Hero mentioned, if you like story, don't buy first party Nintendo games, stick to 3rd party games or other consoles. The first party games are all action and no fluff. Most of the time I like story except for a few cases like Far Cry 5 (but I could skip it all anyways, so it was like it had no story).

Nintendo is almost like blizzard, their story comes from outside the game. Japan has more access, but ARMS has a comic coming out to tell the background. Splatoon's story is all in single player, etc. So it really depends on the game and what and how you want it fed to you.

#677 2 years ago

After playing CoD on Xbox for years and socom on ps2, I’m glad Nintendo doesn’t have chat, my god would kids be yelling about my mom and other nasty things on splatoon.

#679 2 years ago

Nintendo still is holding onto the way they make you play the game the way THEY want you to. They force the experience they envision, onto you, which does NOT sit well with westerners but in Japan they are so deep in some chat app they are totally good with the way it functions. It is a large disconnect with japan vs US mind set in those old people that run nintendo

Dug into DKC Freeze last night, really digging it but the second boss is kicking my ass, anyone have any tips?

That owl jackass?

I remember the phase 3 sucking

#702 2 years ago
Quoted from Tsskinne:

Yeah I never played a Wii U at all, and although I bought a new xbox I haven't played it but maybe 5 times in two years, switch has sucked me back into games a bit largely due to its portability.

I'm in the same boat as you, but my wiiu got me into gaming again even with a x1. The switch only makes it better! with wiiu I could play on the couch while the main tv was used by family (for most games). With the switch, I can play where ever. I also like the nintendo based games seem to be able to be played in short bursts or with sleeping the console "paused" until youre ready again

Or B.B. gamer rewards. I always go into the store and buy but my friend has his shipped to him. I can ask how they package it

#734 2 years ago

I played DKTF this morning. My gosh, I forgot how hard the game is. Great platformer and it still looks gorgeous

#737 2 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

Why is $60 insane for a great game staring one of Nintendo's most iconic characters? Maybe it'd be cheaper if people weren't bootlegging it *cough cough cough*
In any case, it's already sold better than the Wii U version in its first week and is #1 on the eShop. People are buying it at $60.

$52 with gamer rewards (20% off)

I’ve doubled dipped with wiiu and switch. Totally great if you like completing 100%

South Park: Fractured But Whole is on sale at Amazon if anyone was looking to pick that title up.

There is a couple game crippling bugs on the switch so I would caution to keep checking for updates if you wait or buy now

#751 2 years ago
Quoted from Tsskinne:

Doh......thanks for the heads ups, already ordered, but at least its through Amazon so easy return policy.

Well if they patch the game, no worries!

#756 2 years ago
Quoted from Tsskinne:

Yeah I went and read up a bit, sounded like an issue with auto save, they recommend manually saving for now and they are working on a patch so doesn't seem too terrible. May leave it unopened for a bit as I continue working through Donkey Kong anyway.

One bug can wipe all saves out, even if you use multiple..... I mean this game is broke :/

#758 2 years ago
Quoted from jwo825:

Got my switch right at the beginning of march and just haven had much time to devote to it. I just finally finished Breath of the Wild. What an amazing little game. I spent most of the time exploring and the only strategy I read up on was how to farm arrows because I always seemed to be out. it could have been a little more challenging. I stumbled into the final boss and defeated it easily. I have to go back and find the last handful of memories though, because I hear there's an alternate ending when you get them all. Going to get to some other titles right now and circle back later. I started Wonder Boy and it's pretty cool so far. Though I don't think it's going to take more than a couple hours to go through. In the first sitting, I went through half the different forms or curses.

I just got wonder boy a few weeks ago....my god is that hard. No checkpoints so starting over at the beginning suckkkssss

#760 2 years ago
Quoted from jwo825:

I haven't died yet. Do you lose all your progress if you do?

No, you just go back to town and have to start section again.

I guess what is also annoying is after you beat a "section" you have to work back to the town...ugh, it is a great throw back with NOTHING updated but graphics and sound. Checkpoints.....ugh would of been nice for an easy mode.

Yeah, I'm backlogged like a mofo....and I keep playing Splatoon 2 for hours and hours....and Hyrule Warriors comes out tomorrow lol. I've played thru my Switch games WAAAAAY more than I have for the last few generations though, that's for sure.

I think we need to have a pinside splatoon fest!!!

Also we should suggest arcade game vs pinball as a splatfest

#772 2 years ago
Quoted from moonduckie78:

Quoted from Frax:

You guys are going to convince me to buy Splatoon 2, and I didn't even play the first one. Overwatch 2nd anniversary starts on tuesday..don't do this to me!

The second one fixes issues and is a better game, the only part you miss is the single player story

#778 2 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

All the 12 year olds playing would be like “what’s an arcade?” “What’s pinball?” Lol.
Hey, here’s my friend code again if anyone wants to add me! Donnie vs. Raph Splatfest starts tonite!!!

I’ll add you! I didn’t get a chance to splatoon this weekend but I did get quick plays of DK. Finally beat the 3 monkey boss... man this game is gorgeous and fun but hard af. Like lightning flippers on FT

#780 2 years ago
Quoted from Pinballerchef:

They are adding single player content as DLC in the fall I think.....my son got Splatoon 2 for his bday last November but he's too young to understand it (he's 5). I've been thinking of trying it out tho I'm not good at FPS's where I get destroyed but little kids online haha.
I picked up Super Burger Time and Wonder boy was on sale on the store for $10....worth it!!
I have been digging into Xenoblade but it's requires time and a lot of story so far.....the monsters and fighting system are solid so far tho.

Oh, I mean if he hasn’t played splatoon 1, he is only missing out on the story from that by playing 2.

Ya the octoling story comes this year

Edit:

Mmm yeah may be a tad young for online, but story mode he can mess around. Great games would be Kirby, 1-2 switch and my friend says sonic forces. His 3yr old plays those and gets around good

Quoted from Rarehero:

I haven't decided if I like it or not. I like the fan-service and all the Zelda-isness about it....but I find it VERY confusing to know what I should be paying attention to when there's so much going on on-screen & constant messages & all the shit on the map. The action also has this sort of hollow/too-fast/spazzy feel of series I do not like such as Ninja Gaiden & Devil May Cry. I'm gonna keep with it though, see if it clicks. If not, I have a buttload of games to play still!

It literally is just dynasty warriors, if you have ever played that. Hack and slash in giant battles. Really great if you love repeative hack and slash games. Which I do

Quoted from fosaisu:

Just picked up a Wii U on Craigslist after a decade or two out of the Nintendo fold. Can't wait any longer to play Mario Kart with my boys, there's really just nothing quite like it on Xbox or Playstation. My only real complaint is the insane mishmash of controllers, none of which seem to work with more than 60% of the games. On the plus side people have been writing homebrew software and mods for this thing for five years, so I'm having lots of fun messing around with it already.

Wiiu has so many great games and now they are all cheap! Awesome grab! Get a few official pro controllers. They are the bomb dot com and last for freaking ever before a recharge

I don't have a PC. Doesn't matter what the specs are. It's just the way emulation works. There will be lag. Maybe you don't perceive it...but it's there. If you enjoy it, continue.

Yes, there is. Just look at the nes classic. Powerful hardware, enough to emulate GameCube and nes games still had some lag if compared to original. It isn’t a deal breaker but it really depends on what you are looking for or doing.

Enough with emulation. this is a switch thread

I was really wishing simple mode would have been active during the demo. I got destroyed.
Preordering gets you an extra 300 gold points on the eshop. I just want to play against friends, and check out the single player.

Yes! I kept clicking and it was a no go.

After single player I bet we will be better at the power stuff but man online will still be brutal

Did you get it new sealed? Mmm my RL has DL codes on paper inserts for the expanded cars.

#983 1 year ago
Quoted from Pinballerchef:

I did. It only came with a mini music CD.

Interesting. I only ask as GameStop will open games but still sell them as new, so they could of not put the dlc card in.

So how do you know you don’t have the characters? I am just asking as I have not played B.B. since ps3. Maybe they are unlockables or maybe they are dlc, and there is a dlc option in the game settings while in game.

#987 1 year ago
Quoted from Pinballerchef:

I purchased my copy from amazon...they are releasing new character packs each month and they have already released 1 pack plus 1 pack was free DLC with the game.

I charge my switch on the road with a samsung wall wart. But usb c cable. specs : 5v 1a output, i think i've used the iphone one as well.

Quoted from Pinballerchef:

Yeah that’s what I’m afraid of....but maybe some companies out there would include a sensor like the Cabelas games (not a fan of the sneak n shoot games) or a sensor will be made by a 3rd party since the motion controls are so spot on with the Switch.

There was a Dev that proved the joycon could do a "light gun" style game with zero additional hardware, but you'd want a back to home button to recenter your joycon if it got funky. There was a video somewhere.....

Quoted from Who-Dey:

I am interested in this game as well but i just wonder how good it is going to play with a controller? Also it appears that there is no online multiplayer. That sucks because this would be a really good online game to play with your friends.

I’m not sure if they’ll be using gyro controllers or touch screen. However I love Bhh and miss my bbh world. I sold it to plan on getting a bbh hd. This is based on the new hd but cuts most the game out :/ maybe they’ll release dlc. The big excitement for me is, if this get pulled off good, all the rail shooters like RE, house of the dead. Oh man!!! So excited!

Quoted from Who-Dey:

If Splatoon is the best game ever made then i quit gaming forever lol. I mean you try and paint a bigger area than the opposing team with your gun. Im just not finding that fun for some reason and then when you start the game up you have to sit and watch all those cut scenes. Is it possible to skip thru that crap?? If its not that alone will keep me from playing it.

Splatoon is an AMAZING game, hampered by Nintendo’s oddness. You can’t skip the beginning ( splat1 was less annoying, I assume I enjoyed the characters more than these two), you can’t skip Sheldon just make him talk faster. The online friend talk and play is absolutely odd and hard to figure out. If you can get over a few things and just enjoy it, the multiple modes (not just turf war) make this game really fun. I finally booted the game back up last night and put a few hours into salmon run with a friend we did Xbox live chat (him via Xbox, my from my phone) and played salmon run and turf war.

#1453 1 year ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

Hey guys, is Mario Tennis a good game to play online with a friend?

MARIO tennis is a great game..... imo with caveats. If you play with the specials enabled it’s hard af. No skill needed, just power hits over and over. If you just play against a friend it would probably be super fun. Very technical game if you want it to be and easy for new/young players too

299 with a game bundled? Yup!

Quoted from jwo825:

FYI, Wal-Mart has a pricing error right now. They are selling Diablo 3 for $17 and Doom for $12. It's supposed to be the PS4 prices but they messed up. I saw this on Reddit, rushed down and was able to snag them both at those prices. If you're looking for either, beat the rush or the fix and get them!

Both good games at stupid awesome prices!!!!

Quoted from InfiniteLives:

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.

man and where I live, I still don't have consistent voice coverage :/

Smash is a interesting fighter. It’s only a few buttons, unlike most with 4 (kick, high kick etc), however it still has the techniques and technical play to make people watch moves per frame aka competition.

We play the wiiu one at work for fun, I die a lot via falling off the level but it still is fun.

Marvel alliance 3 announced just on switch!

I bought yokus island express as it was on sale. Wow, this game is a unique fun puzzle pinball platform game! I’ve been trying to play as much as I can between house work etc. you go on one mission and boom you’re doing 50 other side things and exploring. Some of the path travel is confusing but once you get a feel for the layout it seems to be better.

Quoted from insx:

This is the problem I have, I pick it up for a game, wander around lost and put it down not having got anywhere. It sounds like that can be overcome though.

Yaaaaa you really need to use the map and explore. I mean I was about to start writing peoples names down and where they were because it got pretty confusing, like delivering the lost mail, idk who those people are. He’ll even finding the 3 main chiefs I had no idea.

I just started playing Tropical Freeze on the Wii U after having it on the shelf for probably a year or so. Af first I wondered why everyone is saying it's a hard game, then I played a few more levels!

I never beat it on wiiu, so I got it for switch. Was trying to collect all items and that lasted a couple levels. Now I’m just trying to beat the damn game. I think I’m on the last island but jeez it’s hard

Quoted from Who-Dey:

They will get it figured out soon i bet. Even Playstation and XBOX has trouble sometimes still when games first launch. They arent going to let Smash Brothers fail as big of a game as it is.

Ya weren’t they even updating wiiu’s smash online through out its life?
