It's just absolutely phenomenal.

$60 on a $300 system.

WTF do we buy pinball machines?

Nintendo is killing it. BOTW, Splatoon 2, ARMS, and now Mario Odyssey. Plus all he great indie games - too many games on my Switch. Not enough time in the day.

Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

Hope they make Conkers bad fur Day remake for switch. Im in on my NIB video game this year!

Rare owns Conker & Microsoft owns Rare....not gonna happen. I love Conker on N64 still, tho.

Good to see a bunch of happy Nintenbros!

Feel free to add me to your Switch friends list!

Quoted from V_piscopo:

Going to order one tonight. Mario & Zelda for me and Splatoon 2 for the kid-0 and me. Has anyone played Splatoon 2?

I have 140 hours on Splatoon 2. Fun and addictive! ARMS is awesome too....and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe! Just get everything lol.

#32 2 years ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

Greg, have you played splatoon 1? If so, how do you like splatoon 2 comparatively? Same with new maps and weapons more or less? I love splatoon 1. Not getting switch at this time but may if my son asks for one for Xmas.

Of course, I love Splatoon 1. Splatoon 2 kills it. Similar, but refined in almost every way. Online battles are more fun, IMO...the new levels really force you into tight battles that can turn on a dime. The Salmon Run mode is a totally new online cooperative mode that's super fun and challenging.

Quoted from monkeyboypaul:

I was just eyeing up WiiU’s on eBay...
Now I want a switch!
Late 30’s... HUGE Nintendo aficionado. They make great games, and great games do not necessarily need all the bling of cutting edge technology. Pinball is an obvious parallel.

There's this his narrative that Nintendo systems are "weak", but do we play specs and teraflops or do we trust our eyes and minds? All of the systems now can do so much, it all comes down to art direction, sound design, gameplay. No "PC-master-race" maniac can convince me that Zelda, Mario, Splatoon, & ARMS aren't gorgeous amazing games. I don't care what your PC can do - it doesn't have these games, and these games look and play phenomenally. There's nothing "bad" about these graphics. Personally I find the mega-realistic games of PC/Xbox to be oft-putting and ugly. The games all look the same. Mannequins with pores and hair and creepy eyes. Or, guns floating in the frame in grey/drab backdrops. You can have it. Nintendo is making beautiful games that embrace being games.

On top of that, the hybrid nature of the system works perfectly and is something no other console can offer. I take my Switch to work every day. I love that I can take a quick game break exactly where I left off on my TV the night before. I love that I can remove the Joy-Cons, hand them to a friend and play ARMS, Street Fighter or Mario Kart. I love that I can take it to a friend's house and have an 8 player Splatoon war. I love that I can play it in bed....and any way you play it, it's a high quality modern experience.

Quoted from eggbert52:

All true Greg but I do feel like the WiiU really missed the mark. Even then, the games still looked great so many have a point when they feel like the gimicky control pad ruined the system. However, Nintendo has always competed on graphics until the WiiU came out. Even Resident Evil 4 on the Cube was known as one of the best looking and best games ever. Then with the Wii and WiiU, Nintendo just missed the mark. Even though the Wii sold millions, it left out the core gamers and instead Grandma and Grandpa were playing bowling. Not having HDMI and 1080P definitely hurt the WiiU. But, I get your point, in the end it's all about the games.
Anyway, one thing we are in agreement on...Nintendo is back!! Especially if XBox and Playstation keep putting out 90% first person shooters.

You're confusing the Wii & the Wii U, which is why the Wii U failed - no one understood what it was. Wii U was a new system, 1080p & HDMI. That's why it was relatively easy for them to port Zelda BOTW & Mario Kart 8 from Wii U.

Quoted from Hazoff:

Nintendo is still #3 and always will be, there's a reason for that and I could explain but I don't want Rarehero to hang himself Wii and the WiiU were disasters, I don't know anyone who owns a Switch and I doubt I will, becasue you know there adults, sorry I had to. I can't wait for the backlash from this comment, go.

Ooph, how much wrong is in this post.

Adults know the difference between "they're" and "there".

Everyone I play Switch with is an adult.

Wii was a smash success, it was Nintendo's best selling console ever.

Wii U failed due to a horrible name and bad marketing. I really enjoyed it though - it had enough great games to make me happy.

People who love to harp on the failure of Wii U forget Nintendo has made money hand over fist from dominating the portable market. The DS & 3DS have been absolutely prolific, with tons of quality software.

My Nintendo stock has been soaring, too. It's all good in Nintendoland. Your loss.

#45 2 years ago
Quoted from pcprogrammer:

The thing I hate about the new zelda is that the whole world looks like it's encompassed in fog.

Well, that just wrong. You can see far off into the distance and all the mountains and stuff you can actually get to. Only time it's foggy is if the weather is bad and it's intentional.

#48 2 years ago
Quoted from Spencer:

My eight year old is a huge gamer. She loves her WiiU and the lego city police game, she's completed the JP game and the Lego game twice now but still goes back to play them again. Plays it for hours a day. She enjoys Zelda and a few others as well. My biggest complaint is the range of games available.... basically nothing...
I showed her some videos of the switch last night, guess Santa will be bringing one.

There are still lots of good Wii U games she could enjoy. There are 3 Zeldas - Windwaker HD, Twilight Princess HD, and BOTW. Kirby & the Rainbow Curse, Captain Toad, Yoshi's Wooly World, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, Rayman Legends, Mario Kart 8, Splatoon, New Super Mario Bros U, Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario Maker.

Wii U rocks! In 10 years all the retro collectors will be paying tons for them.

#49 2 years ago
Quoted from pcprogrammer:

If you are used to bad graphics than that's all you'll know. Play any other modern open world game, it looks much clearer than Zelda. There is a noticeable fog in Zelda, it is that way on purpose because the hardware can't render everything.

You're looking at specs. I'm looking at art. Nothing about Zelda is "bad graphics". Looks like a beautiful painting in motion, with excellent character animation & AI. It's a pure joy to look at. Why is it that I can see Hyrule Castle and Gannon from miles and miles away? Clear as day. No fog.

#53 2 years ago
Quoted from pcprogrammer:

Well I fully 100% disagree. Not sure what you are seeing there, but the whole game looks foggy. I think you just got used to it. Don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed the game and my kids do also. But I would love to see this game get a graphical overhaul. I suspect the next Zelda will look even better since this one was probably made to downplay to the Wii U capabilities.

Maybe we're using different terms here. When I think "fog", I think of N64. That truly had fog to hide the distance and draw in. I'm not seeing anything resembling fog in this game unless it's an intentional weather effect. When the weather is sunny I can see far off into the distance miles and miles away. There's some pop in of things like bushes and trees - is that what you're talking about?

#54 2 years ago
Quoted from Hazoff:

I'm sure they are.

We know you live a life exclusively of gore, horror, death and misery...and R-rated 80's movies. Those are your tastes, but it has nothing to do with being an adult.

#62 2 years ago
Quoted from pcprogrammer:

Just a few more pics to show what I mean...
I think people just get used to it. But man, it could look so much better. Still love the game overall though. It's the first game that I have felt completely overwhelmed at the scope of how big the world is and how long it would take to explore it all.

I've never seen the game look that hazy. Looks like someone jacked up the gamma on their display. Those images look processed to the extremes on either end. In any case, the look of Zelda is absolutelh an atrtistic choice. It's meant to look painted, not realistic. Realistic graphics all loonexactly the same - there's zero artistic interpretation or unique art direction. Zelda looks like an animated movie with intentionally cel shades characters and painterly backgrounds. It's pre art, and gorgeous. The reason I love Nintendo is that their games don't follow the generic realism trends of other developers. I like games with style.

#66 2 years ago
Quoted from pcprogrammer:

That's exactly what it looks like when I play it. I've hooked it up to 2 different TVs and a computer monitor. It looks identical. No one doctored those originals or turned up the gamma. I'm about to go take a video on my tv to show you, but that would require too much effort and you wouldn't believe it anyway. I think anyone can easily see I proved my point.

I just turned it on and looked at it. What you call "fog" and "bad" I call artistic intent. They're going for a soft artistic look. Many Miyazaki movies and anime have this same style. Does Mario look foggy to you?

#70 2 years ago

Here are some grabs from the recent hit movie "Your Name". Is this FOG or ART?

This is a style. One chosen by Nintendo for Zelda. Zeldas style is art, not tech issues.

Quoted from pcprogrammer:

Mine does 4k, I am excited to get an Xbox One X to see how good the games will look on it.

You know how they'll look. Creepy mo-cap mannequins with pores and hairs. Realistic gravel and dirt. Non-art.

I'd rather look at Zelda all day long. Even Windwaker HD on Wii U. ART WINS!!!

#75 2 years ago
Quoted from pcprogrammer:

I'd agree on that, the majority of modern games just are not that fun. Nintendo games are just pure fun. But then again, I don't want to always play a massive open world game, to much of something isn't good either. There are certain games on the Xbox One X that will look amazing and I would not have as much fun. One example, we purchased a lego game a few years ago on the Wii U. The graphics looked so bad we returned it to gamestop (it was a used copy) and got the Xbox One version, the difference was night and day, the Xbox One version looked so much better and the enhanced graphics made the game a lot more fun to play.

Open world games are too much of a commitment. BOTW is the first one I've played all the way thru since GTA3, and it was a pure joy from start to finish. I want to play it again. I don't need tons of them tho. I'm skipping Skyrim.

Ports always seem to suffer. Nintendo knows how to optimize games for their hardware. You've got Mario Kart, Odyssey, Splatoon 2, ARMS running at 60fps and (mostly) 1080p ...while Sonic Forces is 30pfs while 60 on other consoles. Had it not been a quick cash grab port, it would prob look comparable to the other consoles. Hopefully Nintendo will share these optimization tricks with 3rd parties as we move into year 2 of Switch. Personally I'm more than satisfied with 1st party Nintendo titles and the occasional retro style eShop games ...but I'd buy "big" 3rd party games if they put in the effort to make them awesome.

#84 2 years ago
Quoted from Hazoff:

Wow are you ever a babbling brook of bullshit. NES was great, SNES and N64 loved them all but since then its been pretty much crap.

Fuck you. You're 100% wrong, as always. Your loss on missing out on great games. Now get the fuck out of here, fun-sucking troll.

#96 2 years ago
Quoted from V_piscopo:

good to know. I've read nes statements saying there may have been a faulty run. As always my luck. Still a great game hand held.

Have you updated the system and game? One of the first Zelda updates fixed frame rate issues. Connect to the internets!!

#97 2 years ago

I just went to the Portland Retro Game Expo - it was huge and people pay a lot for old systems and games. Right now Dreamcast games are going through the roof. If trends like that continue, in 10
years or so, Wii U will be the "rare" failure of a system that the retro collectors will want. Especially if all the good games aren't ported to Switch.

#101 2 years ago
Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

I'm hoping for a strong black friday deal to pick up a switch for my family.

They're flying off shelves. They don't need to Black Friday Switches...they'll sell on their own. Nintendo just announced their BF items. A green 2DS with Zelda Ocarina 3D (lol) installed for $80 & a Zelda BOTW edition with a book and map.

#107 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'm addicted to Joy-Cons. I don't even need them but I bought Neon Red/blue, the Neon Yellows, and the Splatoon Neon Green/Pinks lol

Compared to pinball it's cheap as fuuuuuck.

#109 2 years ago
Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

Haha you got that right about it being cheaper than pinball.
Can you tell me more about the joy cons? How many do you need to play like a 4 player game of mario kart? Does each person need a right and left?

Nope, that's the beauty of Joy-Con...turn it to the side and snap on the strap piece, and it's a stand alone controller. So, out of the box, you can play 2p Mario Kart. Another pair would let you play 4p. However, if you want a fuller controller, you can snap the left and right onto a grip and it becomes a more traditional style controller. Or - you can use a Pro controller for a regular console style controller.

Then there are games like ARMS which do something even crazier with the "thumbs up grip" for really fun motion control fighting!

#113 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?

If I'm playing at home by myself, I generally just use the Pro controller, but I think the Joy-Cons on the grip are pretty comfy and are just about the same thing.

If I'm playing Snipperclips w/ my girlfriend or a group of friends, we use individual Joy-Cons.

If I'm at work, I've played Mario Kart & Mario Bros. with a friend each w/ a single Joy-Con. I brought my Switch to a family get together, set it up, and 4 kids played Mario Kart split-screen for hours, each with single Joy-Cons.

If I'm playing ARMS, I like using motion control...so 2 for me, and 2 for whoever I'm fighting.

If I'm playing anything in portable mode, I just have the Joy-Cons snapped onto the Switch and play that way.

The Switch is super versatile...you can kinda do whatever you want with the controls!

#115 2 years ago
Quoted from Shoot_Again:

I agree this is a home run!!!
Switch titles are really lacking but with zelda and mario they should sell tons of consoles.

They just crossed 200 games on the eShop...that's pretty damn impressive for only launching in March!

Here's what I have so far:

Super Mario Odyssey
Splatoon 2
Zelda BOTW
ARMS
Rayman Legends
Mario Kart 8 Dlx
Tiny Barbarian
Puyo Puyo Tetris
Wonderboy: The Dragon's Trap
Cave Story+
Mario Bros. Arcade Archives
Ultra Street Fighter 2
Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero
Sonic Mania
Pan-Pan
Snipperclips
Snake Pass

#117 2 years ago
Quoted from epthegeek:

I wish nintendo would give up on the horrible inaccurate motion controls. For example: Arms, with motion controls is a terrible tech demo about wildly flailing your arms. With a standard controller it's a really good nuanced fighting game -- because you have accuracy.

Totally disagree. ARMS motion control is INCREDIBLY accurate...and so amazingly satisfying. I can kick ass online in ARMS and the character does exactly what I want...it's not tech demo, it's the real deal...SUPER ACCURATE and TIGHT controls in motion. I fucking hate it with a standard controller...feels completely weird with it...I can't do shit!!!. With motion, it's totally intuitive and crazy fun...the only buttons I have to think about is jump and dash, punching is fun as F by PUNCHING -and you can curve your punches individually -which you can't do with a Pro controller.

Motion aiming on Splatoon is killer as well.

But hey, Nintendo gives you the OPTION to play it however you want. Don't like motion, play regular style....but I do not want them to give up with awesome motion - I wouldn't have bought ARMS if it was regular controls only....with motion it's the freshest fighting game I've played in forever.

#131 2 years ago
Quoted from V_piscopo:

Go buy BOTW well worth the price have not played a Zelda this good in a long time........ How was SF2 for switch? Worth buying?

It's overpriced, but we're pinball maniacs so what's $40? I like the redrawn HD graphics and new music, but you can play it classic style if you want. Controls with Joycons are surprisingly good, even tho purists will balk. Violent Ken & Evil Ryu are overpowered so online play is annoying if opponents pick them. It's not perfect, but it's fun to have a portable SF2 of this quality.

#135 2 years ago
Quoted from V_piscopo:

I will most likely wait on a big price drop for sf2 or pick one up used down the road. I need to log some hours in BOTW and Splatoon 2 first!

Toys r us is having Buy 1, Get one 40% off right now. But yeah dude just play BOTW and Splatoon. On my Switch stats, I've got 180 hrs on Zelda, 140 on splatoon, and 5 on Street Fighter lol. I need to get back on Splatoon.

#142 2 years ago
Quoted from Crashnburn:

I have the Switch and playing BOTW on a 27" ACER Predator Monitor in 2K however the switch is a 720p resoultion and the monitor is upscaling but it still looks great.

The Switch is 1080p docked, 720p portable.

#146 2 years ago
Quoted from ArcadiusMaximus:

Just picked up a switch and SMO this weekend. Such an amazing little device with excellent build quality and aesthetics. During a cut seen, Mario's airship moved left to right across the screen. I could actually feel the rumble go left to right in the controller. Was an out loud " Oh Wow..." moment. Such attention to detail.

HD Rumble is a lot of fun! In Mario you can go into the settings and crank it up to "Strong", too - It's even better that way, IMO!

I love the HD Rumble in ARMS - if you play with motion, you feel different rumble FX in each hand...you feel the arms "stretching" individually, and the punches individually. It's great!

#149 2 years ago
Quoted from timtim:

My buddy asked me what I thought about the switch, he's had it day 1.
First thing I said was the rumble is nuts. I remember the talk about HD Rumble but I can honestly say I'm impressed.
been loving the switch. I love how I can pull it out of the dock and its ready to play. Was nice to collect a few moons while waiting for the wife to get ready.
Think I have to break down and buy Mario kart. Not many games id double dip on but I freaking love mariokart8 on wii u

Yeah, I had MK8 on Wii U & the DLC....F it, I double dipped. It's the definitive version of the game, the resolution is better, the new characters and battle modes are legit new content....and you can play it on the go. DO it!

#156 2 years ago
Quoted from Kkuoppamaki:

What the heck do you do with those big metal blocks? So much to explore...

Don't want to spoil it for you! You'll find out it eventually.

On another note, I bought Bulb Boy on the eShop since it's on sale for $6. It's a "cute horror" point & click game with really beautiful art. Worth $6, I think. There's another beautiful puzzle/adventure game called Pan-Pan that's only $5 ...I really like that one, too.

#158 2 years ago

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.

#161 2 years ago
Quoted from V_piscopo:

Is 1-2 switch actually fun?

For $24? Sure!

It's basically a Joy-Con tech demo, but it's fun as a party game. It's really neat how there's a game where you have to guess how many marbles are in your Joy-Con. As you turn it or shake it - it actually feels like there are a certain number of balls rolling around inside. If you tilt it slowly, you can feel them hitting against each other.

#172 2 years ago
Quoted from jayhawkai:

Any idea if digital games purchased on Wii stay with your account and can be played on Switch?

WiiWare games probably won't, it's possible they might do something for Virtual Console games tho. No one knows yet.

#174 2 years ago
Quoted from V_piscopo:

How many moons does everyone have? I'm at Bowser's castle on the moon and only have 112.

580 or so?

#182 2 years ago
Quoted from jayhawkai:

What is this sorcery?

Looks like butt bounce jump, hat throw, another butt bounce jump then a bounce off the hat, then wall jump, hat throw, and dive! Phew!!!

#184 2 years ago
Quoted from northvibe:

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

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!

#187 2 years ago
Quoted from Frax:

I'm at like 85 and haven't even started on the 4th world. Only missing the last 8 on Tostarena(sp?), and the game refuses to give me any more hints so... *middle finger* right at ya, Nintendo. I'm not going to aimlessly run around for hours on end. It's bad enough that the 'hints' are only the location where the thing can actually spawn. I realized last night that Mario 64 had a much better system, because at least the name of the section would give you SOME general idea of what the hell you're looking for. SMO just marks it on a map, and it could be anywhere vertically in the level, or hidden in an interior location that's much bigger than the immediate area outside where it shows up on the map? Super irritating.

They'll give you more hints after you finish the story. Don't obsess over collecting everything first. Get to
Bowser and "finish" the game - and then TONS more opens up.

#191 2 years ago
Quoted from ArcadiusMaximus:

Probably not. You know how Nintendo likes to have you buy-rebuy-rebuy-rebuy their games...

Reggie didn't rule it out when asked about it. The problem in the past was that purchases were tied to your console - starting with Switch, they're tied to you My Nintendo account. So - you could put your account on multiple Switches and download your games on all of them. So - if they did let you have your old VC games on Switch, they'd need to figure out some way to let people do it.

#198 2 years ago

Hey did you guys see the Zelda update - they added a new side quest where you can get the outfit from Xenoblade 2. Nice little surprise to have a new thing to do while waiting for the Champions Ballad DLC to drop!

#200 2 years ago
Quoted from Gov:

Yeah, very much like XCOM. A lot of people call it XCOM Lite, and while that is accurate in some areas, the strategy is just as deep IMO. The damage system and unit/weapon types are obviously more limited. If you like XCOM I can't imagine not liking it.

I hate strategy games, but it's Mario so I want to love it!!! Oh well, I've got Odyssey.

#202 2 years ago
Quoted from Gov:

Nobody is perfect

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.

#206 2 years ago
Quoted from northvibe:

You need doom!

I generally don't like first person shooters, I hate the original Doom, but I have to admit this new Doom looks pretty slick. I do like Bio Shock & Metroid Prime - I might actually like this version of Doom.

#209 2 years ago
Quoted from northvibe:

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.

I don't necessarily want a run and gun. I just like action based not turn based. It's why I love Zelda but won't play Final
Fantasy. As far as shooting goes, Splatoon 2 pretty much has me covered. That's the perfect shooter for my sensibilities.

#220 2 years ago
Quoted from lordloss:

I have friends who make fun of the DK64 game because all you do is collect map pieces and bannana for no reason. Those same people love Super mario Odyssey. I dont under how one sucks, but when mario does it.. its ok.

I couldn't get until DK64 because it's so confusing where the hubs end and the actual levels begin. It's really convoluted - in a platformer, I just wanna jump into the levels and go. DK64 takes me like 45 min just to find a level! Mario's design is tight. There are a lot of hidden moons but you're never confused as to the overall progress and goals. I love that there is NO hub world. Just giant levels to explore and play in.

#231 2 years ago
Quoted from winteriscoming:

I bought the Switch and Mario over the weekend. Having a toddler who goes to the shelves and pulls down all my disc-based games and opens them, I decided this was going to be a digital download only console for me.
POTENTIAL SPOILER BELOW:
I didn't look up much about the game prior to buying, and I was super surprised and excited to see the T-Rex!

Not a spoiler, the T-Rex was the first thing shown in the trailer & he's on the box art too.

#235 2 years ago
Quoted from peaceboy666:

8/10.def not 10/10 game

I give it a 46 billion out of 10. So there.

#242 2 years ago
Quoted from Avi8er:

Some possible good news (for me at least), Jeff Kaplan (the director of overwatch) has confirmed that, "I'm loving the Switch! My second favorite gaming platform of all time is the 3DS. Getting OW on the Switch is very challenging for us. But we're always open minded about exploring possible platforms." How do you all feel about this and other big title games possibly getting ported over to the switch?

The reason I like Nintendo is for Nintendo games. I'm not a fan of PC games, their "scene", or their aesthetic. If I wanted to play those games I'd just get a PS4.

#258 2 years ago
Quoted from Frax:

"require" is a dubious word. Certainly didn't "require" one when I held it sideways to play VC games, and there's no technical reason the nunchuck itself needs the IR camera. Might get real janky for them having to fix certain sections of the game to work well, specifically things that might've been handled with the IR bar (reticles onscreen)
There's nothing in the JoyCons that would need the IR that a wiimote can't already do aside from HD rumble. Might not be as precise as the gyros in a Joycon, but wiimotes did have accelerometers for things like flick/shake detection.
*edit* I guess I should've been more specific. I only wanted to use a wiimote really as a sideways Joycon functions, not as a full replacement for Joycons.

One of the reasons Wii U was such a flop is that customers didn't understand it was a whole new console/experience....so, it makes sense that Switch wouldn't have any compatibility with Wii or Wii U peripherals. They want to make it clear that this is 100% it's own thing....and so far that has worked!

Quoted from northvibe:

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

I've got the neon red/blue, neon green/pink, and neon yellow! Mixing color combos is fun!

Quoted from taylor34:

I'm enjoying the game so far, I am surprised that it has 97% on metacritic though. It's a good game, but lets be real here...its production value as far as voice acting, etc, is about the level of a game made 15 years ago, still no online play, etc. Same thing for Zelda, it was like 97% too but I thought the Witcher 3 was a much better game in almost all aspects (story, visuals, combat, etc). I'm not sure why Nintendo gets a free pass on some of that stuff, if someone else came out with the exact same game under a different brand with basically no story or voice acting, it would get a 7 probably.

That's their "style". It makes the player feel more like they ARE the character, rather than a passive part of the experience. I love that they make games this way. Games with tons of cut scenes and voice acting honestly bore the shit out of me. Gameplay is constantly interrupted. Nintendo games have more flow, more whimsey, more charm. Their games are highly reviewed because they're pure gameplay and unapologetic VIDEO GAMES.

#273 2 years ago
Quoted from taylor34:

Let me state, I didn't play Zelda as a kid, so I have no nostalgia for it like a lot of people.

That's a shame, you missed out on a phenomenal series. It's not just about nostalgia, they're mostly amazing games. Link to the Past on SNES is still one of my all time favorites and often seen on best game lists.

Quoted from taylor34:

I just can't figure out what Zelda offers that makes it better than those games.

Art direction, animation, music, freedom, pure joy, I dunno lol

You seem like a PC/PS4/realism gamer...it's possible Nintendo's charm is lost on you.

#278 2 years ago
Quoted from taylor34:

It might be lost on me. I've been playing games since the Apple II days, and really like RPG's like Baldur's Gate II, KOTOR, Mass Effect, Witcher 3, Horizon Zero Dawn, Divinity, etc. so I think I've gotten so used to games with stories that when they don't have one I just have a hard time staying motivated to play it. It's like asking me to watch a 100 hour movie where I know the ending with almost no voice acting, at least with the other games I didn't really know what was going to happen so there was this anticipation of story to keep me going. Finding a shrine for the sake of finding a shrine isn't super motivating, especially when you about fall asleep trying to run around finding them, lol.

See, I'm the opposite. Those brown/drab computer style games with realistic boring/creepy character designs and hours of blabbing away bore the everliving shit out of me. Nintendo's games bring you into living worlds of color, beautiful music, rewarding design and fun exploration. It's pure art & zen for me. I always hated computer games, but loved console games.

Zelda's brilliant because you can play it any way you want. Don't wanna do shrines? Go right to Gannon and try to kill him! Solving the shrines allows you to level up your stamina & life, which allows you to live longer and explore more.

#289 2 years ago

Wonderboy: The Dragon's Trap is on sale now if you don't have it! Absolutely GORGEOUS remake of the cult classic Sega Master System game. Beautiful hand drawn animation, painted backgrounds, and real live recorded music. You can even toggle the graphics and/or music from 8-bit to remake live as you play. It even has various CRT & and FM audio option. They covered their bases. A must have for retro game lovers.

#293 2 years ago
Quoted from taylor34:

It made sense that a stick would break and maybe some other wooden items. Metal swords constantly breaking is not realistic nor enjoyable. Maybe getting dull sure. There's a reason why almost everyone abandoned that concept long ago, it's super annoying, lol. The Witcher's system was also super annoying with your swords getting dull but at least it was realistic.
Going back to the comments above that it's probably not for me, it's probably that I don't like open world games that don't have a story (or have a mediocre story). Hence why I don't really like GTA5 either but loved Red Dead Redemption. Also, I think critics and users are sometimes not in the same ballpark as far as reviews go. So like on Metacritic:
Critic score:
BOTW 97%
Horizon 89%
Witcher 3 92%
User reviews:
BOTW 84%
Horizon 83%
Witcher 3 92%
The user reviews mirror more of what I feel except for I'd have horizon higher. For me, being from Nintendo does not equal 'free pass' on lack of story and other things standard in 2017 because I wouldn't cut any other game slack for it. Maybe I've played way too many games too, my xbox gamerscore is like almost 50,000.

I just don't think you like Nintendo. Sell your Switch. Play all the newest "Mocap Mannequins In Realism Land" games on the other consoles. I'll continue to enjoy this brilliant art and gameplay Nintendo is killing it with.

Also - SPLATFEST STARTS TONIGHT!!!!!

#296 2 years ago
Quoted from taylor34:

I also feel like maybe you haven't played any of the newer RPG's of the past 5 years so maybe you don't understand my perspective?

I don't play RPG's period cuz I hate turn based gameplay & long boring stories.

Zelda's never been an RPG, it's always been an action/adventure/puzzle/quest....maybe that's what's not connecting? Expectations that don't match what you thought it was supposed to be?

Quoted from taylor34:

I just don't cut them a free pass on things like lame online play setup, just because "it's Nintendo" doesn't mean they should absent of criticism.

All I know it's their games are fun as fuck, and the things PC/PS4 gamers complain about have never bothered me. My DS, 3DS, and Wii U have had online play that works perfectly for me....and I'm playing online ARMS and Splatoon 2 on Switch all the time and it's awesome. So, they do get a pass, cuz they make the only stuff I want to play.

Quoted from taylor34:

User reviews:
BOTW 84%
Horizon 83%
Witcher 3 92%

My reviews:
BOTW: 80,000,000,000,000% One of the most amazing games I've ever played & the Zelda I've put the most hours into (175 hrs so far), and I'd totally play through the entire thing again
Horizon: The robot monsters look cool, but those creepy mannequin humans ugh
Witcher: WTF is a Witcher?

#298 2 years ago
Quoted from taylor34:

Do you not have any friends you want to play with online and like talk with them? Because the Switch is awful for that, lol. That's what I'm talking about as far as lackluster online play. No achievements, no coherent network, no integrated voice chat, etc. I like their games like Splatoon 2 online but it would be a lot better if friend integration was better. I mean it's not even at the level of the original xbox from 2002, lol.

The last thing I ever want in gaming is hearing people yelling in my ear. I'm so happy you don't need voice chat to play Splatoon...you can accomplish everything you need from your team in that game by tapping the d-pad to "yell" "THIS WAY!" or whatever.

Achievements are overrated. I don't need the game to tell me I did this or that. I have a PS3 and Xbox 360, those have achievements...I never cared about them at all. The satisfaction of fun gameplay, leveling up, getting new weapons and gear is all I need.

ARMS just added achievement badges, tho...lol

Quoted from taylor34:

Turn based RPG? When was the last time you played a modern RPG? I can't even think of a major turn based AAA one on the Xbox One/PS4 outside of Divinity and Persona 5.

I told you, I don't play RPG's. RPG's = Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, stuff like that. Turn based, lots of talking. ZZZZZZ

Quoted from taylor34:

What was the last non-Nintendo RPG you played? You're describing things from like 20 years ago, lol, as if the last RPG you played was the original Fallout on PC.

We're just speaking different language. I would never play games on a PC and don't know what Fallout is. They still make turn based RPG's today....I don't play them because I never liked the genre.

Quoted from taylor34:

All the turn based stuff kind of disappeared in the early 2000's (except for jrpg's) until Divinity kind of brought it back recently.

I don't know what Divinity is. Turn based stuff never went away. On Switch there's Disgaea 5, Octopath Traveller, Golf Story, etc. Traditional Japanese style console RPGs. I don't like anything turn based or games with more story than gameplay. OK, this is going back aways- but I remember how I wanted to rip my head off while playing Metal Gear Solid 2....cut scene after cut scene....ZZZZZZZ I never played a Metal Gear game after that.

#311 2 years ago

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.

#314 2 years ago

Lots of games on sale on the eShop. Shantae, Mummy & Wonderboy are awesome if you love retro games.

I had those already so bought Flame In the Flood & The Bridge.

#317 2 years ago
Quoted from epthegeek:

I picked up Flame in the Flood because of the sale. I'm not sure I love it. The inventory management & crafting are overly fiddly to the point of annoying.

It's a little weird. I'm not quite sure I get it. I'm definitely dying a lot and not sure if I'm doing something wrong or it's just hard. Normally that would turn me away but for some reason this game is giving me an old school NES vibe - I sorta wanna stick with it and see if I can figure it out.

#325 2 years ago
Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

These answers interest me greatly.
Also, what about charging stations?

I just dock my Joycons on the Switch to charge them. Pro Controller comes with a USB cable that you can plug into the Switch dock.

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?

ARMS, Mario Kart, Puyo Puyo Tetris are all fun multiplayer games up to 4 players couch co-op....and also have online multiplayer. Splatoon 2 is great online but you can't play multi together in the same room unless you have multiple Switches.

#327 2 years ago
Quoted from epthegeek:

I bought a 256gb micro SD card on day 1 because I didn't want to deal with physcial games at all.

Digital is an awesome feature...but the Amazon Prime 20% discount for carts is enticing Also I like buying physical games I'm not quite sure about, so I can sell them if I don't like them or get bored of them. I was really conflicted about Mario, though...I pre-ordered physical, since ya know - it's Mario! I wanna hold that new Mario game! ...but then I realized I've NEVER sold a Mario game ever...and I wanted to play it Thursday night when it launched on the eShop, so I bought it digitally!

#329 2 years ago

I finally got every Moon & Purple coin! Now I can let my girlfriend play. Maybe.

#343 2 years ago

I just found a neat "trick" in Flame In The Flood. I decided to start a new game, since I was just too messed up to survive. In the new game, the dog's backpack is still filled with whatever you put in it during your previous game! So - if you're about to die and want to start over, fill Aesop's bag with good stuff!

#351 2 years ago
Quoted from winteriscoming:

So can you take your Switch to the grocery store and scan these? No way I'm eating that cereal!
I honestly don't get the whole amiibo thing. I see those games with physical toys you scan to get a character in your game (Skylanders and Lego Portals?) and that makes sense, but what does an amiibo do other than let you get small bonuses in a game for paying for a toy? If they made a Pokémon game where you could buy a toy to get that Pokémon in your game, that would make sense, but I have yet to see anything nearly that compelling with amiibo. I haven't been following the functionality closely, though.
I know Yoshi Wooly World on Wii U had some that would let you get new skins for Yoshi, but those were so plentiful in the stock game that I had no reason to buy a toy to get a new skin. It's not like Yoshi would have any different functionality.

They really haven't done much with amiibo lately besides unlocks, but they have the ability to write to the toy, which is cool. In Smash Bros., you can play against an amiibo which "trains it" - it levels up and becomes a better player. It's like a training partner. You can write its stats back to the toy, and then take it to a friend's house so they can try fighting your amiibo.

The write ability works in a neat way with Wolf Link in BOTW. If you used Wolf Link amiibo with Twilight Princess, it saves your game info to the toy - and however many hearts you had in TP, when you use Wolf Link in BOTW, it'll have the same amount of hearts.

Any luck on this front? I just looked the game up and it looks interesting. Wondering if you would recommend it.

I still kinda suck but I'm getting better. I finally got the hang of making traps and was able to get some animals. I still keep dying around same area - I think I need to start over and make/use traps earlier than I did this time around. I'm finding it quite addicting to play! For $13 I'm happy with it.

It does.

I wish you could take the top Joy-Con off like on Zen's, but it's still pretty good. Looks great, 60fps handheld or docked. Touchscreen flippers work nice in handheld as well.

#614 2 years ago
Quoted from Groo:

What do you mean take off the top joycon? I've been playing Zen and SPA with the joycons in my hand detached.

You can play with the "bottom" (right) Joycon attached and the left detached...so you can hold it in your hand, play with the touch screen, and feel rumble... but it's a bit lighter without the top one adding weight. If you try the same thing on PA, it doesn't "get" it. It needs both Joycons attached to the system, or detached.

#624 2 years ago
Quoted from northvibe:

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.

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.

Quoted from yuriijos:

It’s a good price cuz it’s $299 normally and you should get it if you love fun.

#644 2 years ago
Quoted from yuriijos:

Yeah I already have an Xbox One and I like the idea of a good portable system with good games. Liked the original Zelda on NES and the new one looks pretty amazing.

Zelda is amazing. It’s great in portable mode or docked and playing at home. Nostalgia helps, but the games stand on their own merit and no one else can touch them in terms of art direction, music, and pure gameplay.

I watched some “gameplay” video of the new God of War for PS4 since it’s getting tons of hype. I just don’t get it. At all. Hyper-realism has no “style”...the game seems to be non-stop cut scenes and talking. I could tell I’d be bored of it very quickly. Realistic skin & grass will never be as impressive to me as Nintendo’s whimsical approach to art direction, and non-stop talking will never be as engaging as great gameplay design.

If you like classic Nintendo IP, Mario Odyssey & Mario Kart 8 are must haves. If you wanna try newer IP, Splatoon 2 is phenomenal (I just passed the 345 hr mark on it lol), and if you like fighting games, ARMS is an incredible experience...fresh as hell.

#648 2 years ago
Quoted from Darscot:

Don't overlook GoW it's the real deal. There is actually not a single camera cut the entire game. It's technically and graphically a master piece. The story is seemlessly intertwined into the gameplay. You could not be more wrong about cut scenes and talking. Sure the art style is personal opinion but GoW is one of those landmark games and one of the best games ever created. It deserves the perfect 10s it's getting. So far it's every bit as good as Zelda.

I know it’s all ps4 graphics and no FMV, but in the gameplay video I was watching, it was almost non-stop talking and tons of cool action that isn’t player controlled. “Realistic movie wannabe games” just instantly put me to sleep. As much as I’ve tried, I can’t get past more than an hour or so of Uncharted, Infamous, Batman Arkham, etc. It’s just not a design philosophy that hooks me. I might finally bite on a PS4 for the new Spider-Man...it looks like it has some quicktimes, but looks to have enough of the type of action I like. I also want the Shadow of the Colossus remake & Gravity Rush 2 looks really cool.

#651 2 years ago
Quoted from Darscot:

I love my switch but game like GoW highlight some of the hardware shortcomings. You have to admit seeing loadings screens and subbar performance in BotW was disappointing.

I admit nothing. BOTW is pure magic from start to finish & then some. It’s exactly what I want in a game. Loading only when warping and going into shrines. Doesn’t bother me at all. I can’t get thru an hour of most modern Xbox/PS games - yet I have 200 hrs on Zelda. This type of game speaks to me. Absolutely gorgeous from start to finish. I don’t see “shortcomings”, I see spectacular art direction, animation, world design, AI, sound design, etc. All iconic. When I see something like GOW, I just see “another mocap mannequin game” and “realistic skin...kinda impressive but kinda gross”.

As for the online, I’ve got 90 hrs online with ARMS and 345 hrs on Splatoon. Online is fine for me. Again, most aspects of modern gaming turn me off - so these are the only online games that appeal to me. I don’t want to hear people talking and yelling into a headset. I wanna crank up my spoons system and hear the great music and sound. Splatoon’s “Booyahs” and “This ways” are social enough for me.

#657 2 years ago
Quoted from Darscot:

You are clearly only a Nintendo gamer and that's fine. Your really going out of your way to try and make it seem like GoW is in some way bad or flawed. Zelda is a great game but it's kinda silly to just blow off other games because Nintendo didn't make them.

Not saying it's bad or flawed, but it's representative of a games industry that went a certain way that gamers like me don't find interesting, and I'm glad there's an alternative. Actually, GOW is a perfect example of what's great about Nintendo. The people obsessed with technology will point to GOW or lack of PUBG & other mainstream hits as proof Nintendo sucks...but here's the thing - all those games/tech you like EXIST already. What good would Nintendo be if they just did the same exact thing as everyone else? Why do people want Switch to be the same experience that exists elsewhere? PS4/Xbox/PC are generally interchangeable...the market didn't need a 4th clone. Nintendo discovered this with the Gamecube, which essentially was the same thing as as PS2 or Xbox. Since then, they've done their own thing - which makes them a perfect companion console if you already have an Xbox/PS4/PC....Switch brings something absolutely different to the table.

Quoted from Darscot:

You comparing apples to oranges, Zelda is not even in the same league technically to GoW.

I don't play "tech", I play games. From what I've seen of GOW, Zelda blows it away in terms of game design. GOW will win the "realistic skin" and "most talking" award

#658 2 years ago
Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

What a time to be alive that there are so many great options for entertainment.
Haven't seen much mention in here of how the new donkey kong game is, worth picking up?

It's actually an old Donkey Kong game (came out for Wii U in 2014) ,but if it's new to you then absolutely pick it up! It's one of the best sidescrolling platformers of all time. Phenomenal gameplay, design, music, and graphics.

#659 2 years ago
Quoted from Frax:

Wasn't for me. In the end..it's going to be like every other Zelda of the 3d era except for Wind Waker....
Sitting in my closet unfinished for all eternity. I gave up trying to figure out what the hell they expected me to do when my only advancement path is to walk into a murder cave and...get murdered, because there's too many bloody thieves and sneaking just isn't cutting it.
*Edit* Oh, I guess I did forget to simply throw f'ing bananas all over the place. *roll eyes*

I've struggled with every 3D Zelda...I always felt like I was playing them out of obligation. It finally took the 3DS version of Ocarina for me to finally finish it. Link to the Past on SNES and Link Between Worlds 3DS were my favorites. BOTW throws everything I hate about 3D Zelda's out completely, and brought me back to being a kid playing the original NES version. The sense of freedom and discovery is absolutely addicting.

The banana cave was difficult, but there are a bunch of characters that talk about those guards loving bananas - so ...the setup was there.

I never got absolutely "WTF!?!??" stumped in this game like I did with Ocarina, Wind Waker, and Majora. I gave up completely on Majora. Maybe one day...lol

#661 2 years ago
Quoted from Darscot:

You should really play it because you clearly have not seen it and you basing your opinion of a some video that is clearly not a good representative of the game.

LOL it was a 3 hour live gameplay video. It's 100% representative of the game. It was literally a video of the game. No edits.

Quoted from Darscot:

Every game is a tech game and it's unfortunate Nintendo limits games because of the tech.

Sometimes limited tech leads to interesting design and visual decisions that make video games "video games". We'd never have Pac-Man if the tech was unlimited. Zelda's an incredible game and does everything you could ever want to do beautifully & intuitively. I can play it at home or on the go. I can use regular and motion controls. If there are "limits" in this experience, I don't see them.

Quoted from Darscot:

There is no doubt BotW would have been better if it was not limited by the hardware

It's perfect, so why should I ruin the experience by hoping for it to be better? It's like playing a beautiful painting or animated feature...it's exactly the experience it needs to be. I truly hope I never see a Nintendo game with pores and skin and hair. Style and art direction is where it's at...GOW may look like a real movie, but that's not what I want to look at in video games.

Quoted from Darscot:

Games like GoW show what is possible in the industry.

Yes, more video game companies trying to be movie companies...and improving their skin technology.

Quoted from Darscot:

You talking shit about it because it looks different.

I watched a gameplay video to see what the hype was about, and to me - in my opinion - it looks boring. Too. Much. Talking. ...and skin. lol

#664 2 years ago
Quoted from Darscot:

Ok this is just getting silly. I myself would love to play BotW in 4K HDR or at 60 FPS and done away with those ridiculous loading screens. No game is perfect, it was great but there will always be another landmark game and GoW is it. I'm not finished it yet but i've logged a lot of hours so I can't decide which is better yet but it's damn close. I'll let you get back to all things Switch. I am a software engineer in gaming so maybe I just see a lot more.

Makes sense. I work in animation, so it's hard for me to watch cartoons as objectively as people who are just viewers. They'll just see "funny", but I'll be distracted by all the technical stuff that bothers me.

#675 2 years ago
Quoted from taylor34:

And Rare Hero, I'm glad Nintendo is different, but that doesn't mean that crappy online setup and no voice chat is acceptable in 2018 when I was doing that in 1999 in counterstrike, lol. I mean seriously, come on.

What even is a Counterstrike? Let's see...ah, one of those ugly grey & brown floating gun games? LOL...PC games...the worst.

Like I was saying before...Nintendo isn't trying to clone other existing devices. If you want voice chat & ugly floating gun games, Xbox, PS4, and PC exist. Have at it. I don't want to hear people swearing, bullying and insulting each other while playing video games...and since Nintendo heavily markets toward families, they don't either. You can do voice chat in Splatoon 2 thru the app...but I've never even bothered with it. It's super fun without chat, and the in game commands are enough to communicate with others and get results. Splatoon 2, ARMS, and Mario Kart have sold millions & always have tons of people online playing - so, clearly voice chat isn't something all gamers care about.

You're looking at this through a computer gaming lens. Console/portable gamers have different priorities.

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

I debated rebuying it, but I buckled. It def looks better on TV at full 1080p compared to the Wii U version.

It’s a great game that was ignored on the Wii U, so it’s a new game to lots of people. Lots of SNES lovers who grew up on the DKC games skipped a few Nintendo generations & have come back for Switch. That’s why the game is selling so well despite being a port.

#705 2 years ago
Quoted from Jarbyjibbo:

No talk about their recent announcement? Online play, cloud backup, Switch online app, NES game play on your Switch, and no virtual console (as of now).

Virtual Console is just branding. I think what they're doing with the NES library will be their new approach to classics...a Netflix style selection for subscribers. Hopefully as this service grows, they'll include SNES & N64 libraries as well. Companies are already doing a lot of retro arcade releases & retro compilations...those are essentially "Virtual Console" without the branding.

#707 2 years ago
Quoted from Darscot:

Having the new virtual console as part of online could suck. Most subscription based services need you to be online to use. Nintendo is pretty brutal about this stuff, just look at Mario IOS.

They already said in the announcement that the NES games can be played offline. There will probably be some kind of "key" within the console that verifies subscriptions & their expiration dates, same way it verifies purchases. I have a ton of Switch games I've purchased on the eShop. They play just fine without being connected to the internet.

I want this game but $60 is insane for it. I have it in 4k on my pc (via dolphin) but would like to have it portable.

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.

Quoted from MikeS:

My GameStop had 1 copy left which I was able to pickup. But that is a good idea as they are short on supply.

We’re you able to update it to 1.3? When 1.3 came out, it added the vertical portrait mode, but only updated on the digital version and not the physical. The physical has a different publisher. Just wondering if they fixed this problem. If so, I’ll prob pick up the cart!

#744 2 years ago
Quoted from MikeS:

I'm not sure of the version number but it did prompt me for an update and it does have portrait mode which works well.

I got impatient and just went to Gamestop to get it lol - but yup, it updates to 1.3 so it’s equal to get Digital eShop version, but cheaper for all the tables! Plus, you can sell it if sick of it down the road!

#750 2 years ago
Quoted from Tsskinne:

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

I only see a UK import version. Link?

Edit: I found it. I clicked on the PS4 version & went to the “other formats” section. Weird that it didn’t just come up under the regular search.

#761 2 years ago
Quoted from northvibe:

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.

It'll be interesting to see what approach the similar but new Monster Boy takes...it's an all new game from scratch, inspired by Wonderboy. I bet it'll be a bit more modern in regard to checkpoints and such.

#767 2 years ago

Lots of good games on sale on the eShop! I just bought 88 Heroes, 50% off at $15. I've been waiting for that one to hit a nice price.

Quoted from jwo825:

I've got such a backlog going. I need to finish about 7 more games. And I haven't even bought SMO or DKCTF yet. I need to be ready for Octopath Traveler in two months!

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.

Quoted from northvibe:

I think we need to have a pinside splatoon fest!!!
Also we should suggest arcade game vs pinball as a splatfest

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!!!

#784 2 years ago
Quoted from Pinballerchef:

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 never played FPS...I just don’t like “floating guns” ...I want to see my character. Also I don’t like realistic war games, or brown/gray lookin’ games in general. So - Splatoon is a shooter for people who never liked shooters. It ticks all the boxes for me, anyway. Since you’ll start playing against people of equal level and rank, you shouldn’t (in theory) get too destroyed when you start.

The game is seriously fun and addicting though, with all the weapon/sub/special variety & gear/ability combinations....all the different modes, etc. Your skills can grow and grow and you’ll eventually settle in with a play style & weapon choice. I can hold my own against all the 12 year olds lol ....My win ratio is higher than my losses.

There are constantly new stages, weapons and gear added...plus Splatfests....and Octo expansion is coming soon. I don’t think I’ve never played a game this much. Splatoon (and Switch in general) is why I barely play pinball anymore lol.

#788 2 years ago
Quoted from Frax:

The variety of weapons in Splatoon 2 is what interests me. Makes it seem very much like Overwatch in which you can change tactics quite a bit.

Yeah - I use different weapons depending if I’m playing the ranked modes or Turf War. You also get to know how other people use weapons and try to find ways to combat them depending on what you’re using.

There’s also a mode called Salmon Run where there are random Weapons assigned to you and your team vs. a CPU hoarde of monsters. That’s a good one that forces you to try new weapons.

Quoted from insx:

I just saw a video of Beat Sabre, a VR game on steam. I'm a bit partial to a rhythm game and I can't help thinking that it would be a good use of the Joy Cons. Not as immersive of course, but I can't see any real need for it to be in VR.

Thumper was a VR rhythm game that came to Switch. It’s awesome as a portable game w/ headphones during a break at work for a few quick levels.

#793 2 years ago
Quoted from insx:

I have Thumper and I agree that it's awesome with headphones (also on a big TV with a nice sound system in a darkened room). I find myself not playing it for a while and finding it hard to pick up again though.

How far can you get? I'm in the middle of level 5 and it's SOOOO hard. I HAVE to put it down for a while and then when I pick it up, hope I can complete just one more small section before I'm exhausted again lol

#797 2 years ago
Quoted from Tsskinne:

Just got to level 6 stage 7 last night, getting close.

Holy moly! Up thru level 4 there’s some leeway if you don’t get everything perfect...Level 5 has those things that kill you instantly if you miss something. Ooooph!!!!!

#800 2 years ago

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.

#807 2 years ago
Quoted from Pinballerchef:

I have the 3ds version, PS4 physical version and PS4 digital (it was included in a humble bundle) so I decided against this version but I did preorder the SNES MEGA MAN X collection for the switch. I like the cloth.

Yeah honestly I wanted Collection 2 more than 1, since I have 1 on 3DS....so I was gonna just get the eShop download of 2 anyway. Buuuut, it's $20 on the eShop, and this version with the cartridge for 1 & the cloth was $32 on Amazon Prime....soooo...whatever, I just went for it. I can always sell the cart!

#808 2 years ago
Quoted from InfiniteLives:

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.

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.

#812 2 years ago
Quoted from InfiniteLives:

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)

Yeah, it sounds good...def a good deal! But - I pay for Prime already so not sure I wanna pay for another discount service....but yeah there were a few recent deals where I was like "dang, I shoulda signed up" lol

...actually I just looked it up and it looks like they've ended the program!!!! So that's that...

#814 2 years ago
Quoted from Gov:

For those that haven’t played it Hyrule Warriors is a good time. Much more to it than it seems on the surface.

I haven't decided if I like it or not. I like the fan-service and all the Zelda-ishness 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!

#827 2 years ago
Quoted from Frax:

...*raises hand*
That Thumper game looks odd. I'm gonna check it out when I get home. I love a good hard rhythm game, but I'm not really getting what's going on in the video I just watched.

It’s weird. Took me a while to get a handle on it. The music is very ambient so the usual rhythm game instincts get thrown off a bit. For me anyway. But I’m glad I gave it a shot when it was on sale for $13.

I was excited before, but the new trailer has taken that excitement up a few notches. I've already picked up a box of Band-Aids for my thumbs in preparation.

I'm still a bit lukewarm on MM11 due to the "hollow" and "stiff" feel of his animation....take a look at Megaman 7 or 8 - still gorgeous today!!! However, the bosses in that trailer looked AWESOME, and it's only $23.99 if you pre-order on Amazon Prime....sooooo, I ordered it lol

#861 2 years ago
Quoted from Nexyss:

Can you play that with the joycon attached in vertical? Most of the vertical games I have tried don't remap the left stick for vertical if it is still attached. I would really like to play it as a one piece unit.

I don't think so - I just tried it...it only remaps to the single joycon if you can press the SR and SL buttons...if I pop it back on you have to re-sync the controllers again.

No I haven’t visited the stores yet I will have to give that a try

Yeah, you can spend the coins you collect on all kinds of powerups, extra hearts, sidekicks, etc. That should definitely help you out!

Quoted from boslj:

I totally agree. I downloaded Yoku last night and while I didn't put a lot of time on it yet, I really enjoyed it. I also picked up the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary. It's nice being able to play 12 different Street Fighter games portably.

SF Collection is a great love letter to the series - but I tried playing online last nite and it was choppy as F. Not sure if it’s my internet, the opponents, Capcom’s fault...I dunno. I play Splatoon, ARMS, and Kart online and it’s smooth and responsive. Ultra SF2 had problems online, sometimes grinding to a halt ...this isn’t that bad, but it’s annoying that it was constantly stuttering, even the music.

Quoted from V_piscopo:

You can also buy retro controllers (same specs as original controllers) to USB port. I use the n64 one all the time when emulating. They make them for all systems. I use my nes emulator a lot and it's way better than the original. No blowing in carts, save game data, and any game I could ever own.........FREE.

Also lag lag lag. Emulation is not better than the original or good fpga hardware, especially if you play precise timing games like Punch Out or Megaman. If you want free games and accurate gameplay, get an AVS or NT & an Everdrive.

#904 1 year ago
Quoted from V_piscopo:

What are the specs of the PC your running? What emulator are you running? Lol. If you have lag with nes games like punch out or MegaMan there must be a bigger problem.

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.

That demo was so frustrating and demoralizing I rage-quit for the first time....promptly went on Amazon & cancelled my pre-order.

As for Pokémon - I was in college when it came out and I only knew it as “that seizure cartoon”...and I don’t liken RPGs, so I have no attachment to the characters or series.

Also got some Nintendo schwaaaag!

#948 1 year ago
Quoted from northvibe:

Nice!!! Did the game feel like wiiu smash?
I miss going to E3, lots of fun

If Smash Wii U was Street Fighter 2, then Smash Ultimate is Super Street Fighter 2. It's clearly built off the same exact engine, but w/ some tweaks and more characters. The only way I was able to win was because Pac-Man played exactly the same as the Wii U version.

This is what I expected. Smash Wii U was such a huge and deep game that ran at 1080/60fps, there's no way I thought they'd start from scratch on the next one...but built upon the existing game.

#950 1 year ago
Quoted from Frax:

I would downvote this if I was allowed to.
Fortnite is an idiot's game designed for idiots, IMNSHO. The weapon accuracy is terrible (Honestly this is the worst..it's a meme. See below. ) Props to the devs, though, for figuring out the most effecient way to milk hundreds of millions of dollars out of the gaming community right in the midst of everyone pissing and moaning about loot boxes. Good for them.
126 million in february. For cosmetic shit. It's the new Team Fortress 2, only TF2 actually gave you...you know....weapons and shit that effected the gameplay.

I played it for the first time at E3 yesterday, had no idea what to do, and was killed within seconds. When I got home, I downloaded it cuz "why not, free game". I watched some videos of people playing...went back to my Switch and deleted it lol ...I can already tell I won't like it, and Splatoon's Octo Expansion is dropping today...I gonna be full in on that & the rest of my Switch backlog.

#954 1 year ago
Quoted from Frax:

Bought Splatoon 2 today.
About to go play it for the first time.

I’d say “let’s play!!” but I’m at level 62 so that just isn’t fair.

Although if you want any advice I’d be happy to help!

Rule #1: USE MOTION AIMING if you wanna git gud.

Be sure to pick a team for Splatfest this weekend! Even if you end up not playing, you’ll still earn Super Sea Snails for participating (although you get more if you play a bunch) ...you can use them to add slots to gear that doesn’t come with 3 slots.

#958 1 year ago
Quoted from Frax:

The motion controls suck ass. The fact it doesnt auto reset back to zero and having to oress a button to realign every time is a joke. I get why its SUPPOSED to be better to use the mtoion controls, but Im doing just fine doing better than level 14-25 people with the regular joyoad type controls.
I'm all ears otherwise, and I dont mind olaying with higher skill grouos for a challenge as long as peiple are gonna coach. Sucks that this tjing doesnt have a true built in voice chat....but Nintendo.

Auto reset? I don’t even know how that would work or if I’d want it...i only use the reset button when I start the game to calibrate - after that, center is always center. I’ve also set mine to be more sensitive - so not much movement gives me lots of aiming range. You still use the stick for left/right when motion is on. It’s the subtle up/down you get with tilt that makes the gameplay soooo much better. Anyway - I really recommend you try it - especially with certain weapons like rollers - the aim you get on a jump/fling, I really don’t think that’s possible with stick only.

As for matchmaking, I’m getting matched with 100+ so, yeah lol. If you want “skill fairness”, try the ranked modes. If someone has played 1 hour or 100 hours and they’re both rank B, that means their skills are relatively comparable. While Turf War is competitive, it’s more of the “fun, no stress” mode.

I’m glad the game doesn’t have voice chat as a standard, but you can match up with friends using the Nintendo App and chat that way. However - pay attention & use the in-game chat commands. If someone says “This away” they’re indicating they’re in a safe spot and come help push & ink. Go to the map and use super jump (easier to use the map with motion). If someone does “Ouch” that’s a warning about the area they got splatted.
If someone BOOYAHs, Booyah back! Booyahs for someone saving you, for good splats, for morale lol...

Anyway - enjoy! I’ll always advocate motion aiming on Splatoon. I’ve never liked or been good at console shooters until I played Splatoon on Wii U, and motion aiming is a huge part of it. It adds to the gameplay and is just really satisfying and fun.

I was thinking of starting a Twitter just for uploading gameplay clips of Splatoon 2 and ARMS from my Switch lol. I post them on FB, but my page is private. If I do, I’ll let you know. I’ve pulled off some pretty crazy stuff that’s fun to watch.

#960 1 year ago
Quoted from Gov:

I didn't like motion aiming at first but after 50+ hours using it, I am sold. I try to play other FPS games now with the standard controls and find it frustrating now. I still prefer mouse and keyboard, but on a console I want motion aiming.

Even though I've never played anything with a mouse/keyboard (the concept of using word processing tools to game just seems so weird to me), the precision of aiming is why I imagine motion aim would totally appeal to a PC FPS gamer - it's basically a floating mouse!

The only way I'm gonna bother with Fartnite is if they patch it with motion aiming.

#962 1 year ago
Quoted from Frax:

Oh duh...okay, this is actually a really good point, thanks.

Oh, nah. It's interesting to observe how other people are using specific weapons.

You can do that on ranked - but people use specific weapons for different reasons in ranked. In Turf War I tend to use something like Sploosh-o-Matic cuz it inks a lot of ground really fast, and I can use the curling bombs to rush or escape, and I love Splashdown. But in Tower Control, I switch to something with more range like the N-Zap, which comes with a suction bomb & I like to chuck those at the tower to stop the other team from jumping on it.

#968 1 year ago

Splatoonists old and new - Splatfest starts tonight!!!!!!

It's orange juice themed...Team PULP vs. Team NO PULP!

I'm on Team PULP!

I was getting some practice this morning when only high level Japanese players were on...I was holding my own and won 5 of 6 games! I think beating the Octo Expansion has really dialed in my motion aiming discipline!

(The players with the star * next to their number means they're really Level 104 and 113!!!! I'm always scared when I see those lol)

Quoted from Frax:

I was on Pulp too, so WOOT for us. Clearly No Pulp had really terrible players to still lose after that much of a popularity margin! Wish I had done some research and seen that octo was paid content. On the upside...the price difference I got from picking it up on sale will pay for the expansion so... /shrug.
Really been enjoying it, but I'm having a REALLY hard time waffling back and forth between Overwatch, Splatoon 2, and No Man's Sky (Picked up for 15 bucks lol) along with WoW. Just a glut of stuff to play right now!

TOO MANY GAMES! Thankfully Splatoon 2 is the only shooter type game I like, so I can dedicate lol ...I just hit 400 hours!!!!

The prob with that big of a popularity margin is that if you were on No Pulp, most of their matches were against EACH OTHER, which didn't count toward Splatfest totals.

Quoted from FatPanda:

The Zaccaria Pinball app is available on the Nintendo Switch store. It operates similarly to TPA, where you get one game free, but can sample any of the available games up to a point limit. Some interesting pins. I had not seem many (or any really) of these machines at all. Physics are ok. I would say TPA is a step better.

The interesting thing for me about the Zaccaria app is that there are “update” DMD-ified versions of a bunch of games. Thankfully there are demos of every game to try. Frame rate is a bit iffy tho - if they can get it to 60fps like TPA & Zen, it might be worth buying some tables.
