    The Nintendo Switch Lite Launches This Week - Will You be Buying One?

    in Gaming Discussion 6 hours ago

    No way. My Switch is still working fine after 2 years. I don't use the Switch too much in handheld mode, so that appeal isn't there for me. ...

    PS4 Exclusive List (Video)

    in Sony Discussion 6 days ago

    I don't get how enough people could even want an Xbox One over a PS4, Switch, or Gaming PC. I'm someone who picks platforms for exclusives. And in that regard, Xbox One is beyond abysmal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbgYTmMDjHE I understand Xbox One can have great discounts and some people play with their friends, but still. ...

    Sakurai: "No way" future Smash Bros. games will have as many fighters as Ultimate

    in Nintendo Discussion 6 days ago

    I think it's safe to say that we won't see a Smash game again with "Everyone Is Here!" Including Echo Fighters, we're over 80 fighters once the Fighter Pass is done. And then there will be more fighters still. I think it's feasible that the next Smash could have almost the same amount of fighters or slightly more, but a lot will be cut (massive cuts I'm thinking to third-party characters) to...

    Everybody is doing a mini console except Microsoft

    in Microsoft Discussion on 09 September 2019

    It's not cost-effective yet. All the mini consoles have been Gen 5 and earlier. Xbox didn't enter until the sixth gen. Even 10 games on an Xbox Mini will at least rack up an $80 price tag. Probably higher than that. Maybe once other mini consoles have come out and maybe after Nintendo 64 Classic, an Xbox Mini might make sense. I could see them including it with a Duke as well, or having the...

    Terry Bogard in Smash. And how KOF inspired Sakurai to make Smash.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 09 September 2019

    Terry neither angers me or excites me really. But can people saying you're not a proper gamer if you don't know who Terry Bogard is? Terry seems to have been the biggest in the 90s, and there are so many games out there. King of Fighters isn't exactly a really mainstream game. A lot of gamers don't play many fighting games. Smash isn't a fighting game in the traditional sense, and it's really...

    What's causing Nintendo's software sales on the Switch to be so good?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 08 September 2019

    Several factors: The melding together of Nintendo's home console and handheld console audiences, appeal to all regions, Wii U ports that a lot of people missed, more core titles than the Wii There's still a lot they can improve, but they've done a lot towards profitable software. ...

    What Mario games are more similar to 3D World?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 08 September 2019

    They're kind of their own thing, but they're closer a bit to 2D Mario games. 2D Mario Games Linear 3D Mario Games: Super Mario 3D Land, Super Mario 3D World Semi-Linear 3D Mario Games: Super Mario Galaxy 1&2 Exploratory 3D Mario: Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Odyssey Most times I lump the Galaxy games with the most open 3D Mario games, but I can understand why they are a...

    Alternate History: What happens to gaming if the internet never existed?

    in Gaming Discussion on 05 September 2019

    Multiplayer is less of a priority in games than it is today. Local multiplayer will continue to exist, of course. Games will be more complete when they release, due to the lack of patches, and DLC won't exist. Physical copies will be just about the only way to play games. Basically a lot of gaming will be how it used to be, but continue to evolve with better graphics and sound, etc. ...

    How physical are you?

    in Gaming Discussion on 05 September 2019

    About in the 61-70% range. I got a PS4 in July 2019, but only own 2 physical games for it. This is largely due to the deals on PS Plus, and the free games. Switch, on the other hand, is largely physical. Wii U was almost entirely physical, as was 3DS. And then my PC games (Steam) are all digital. Physical is my preference, and sometimes it is cheaper. On the other hand, digital can be cheaper...

    Just got a Switch, what do I need?

    in Gaming Discussion on 05 September 2019

    128 GB (minimum) microSD card. You might even want a 200 GB or 256 GB card. Also get a screen protector. The dock isn't the kindest to the tablet. I'd also recommend some sort of carrying case, even if it's just for the Switch in handheld mode. Yes, get a Pro Controller. The buttons on the JoyCons are so tiny. If you want additional Pro Controllers, a Hori Wired Controller would probably be just...

    Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition announced for Switch (2020)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 05 September 2019

    Remember when Nintendo wasn't going to release Xenoblade Chronicles in North America? Now in 2019, Xenoblade Chronicles has a second port on the way, and 2 follow-up games that have already been released. One of those games sold over a million copies and had a significant DLC story released in 2018. These are confusing times. ...

    Luigiís Mansion 3 will have an achievements-type feature

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 September 2019

    This is cool, but it's well past time for Nintendo to introduce an achievements system. I can get why it didn't happen on the Wii, the Wii didn't have much of an online infrastructure. Heck, I can even kind of understand Nintendo still not going for it with Wii U. Maybe. But the Switch really should add an achievements system. It's been an industry standard feature since the late 2000s. ...

    Favourite Nintendo hardware revision (so far)

    Should next gen systems be fully Backwards Compatible from Day 1 to encourage people to upgrade?

    in Gaming Discussion on 23 August 2019

    Yes. Backwards compatibility isn't ride or die, but it's really convenient. Sony set the standard for home console backwards compatibility with the PS2. I know some other consoles had done it in the past, but they weren't as major (Atari 7800) or required an adapter (Sega Mega Drive/Genesis). And of course the Game Boy Color set the stage for portable consoles. For the Eighth Gen, the Wii...

    Alternative Timeline - after the N64-CD

    in Nintendo Discussion on 23 August 2019

    Microsoft likely would enter the race, inspired by Sony's PlayStation. Even if the PlayStation loses to the N64, it would still put up a heck of a fight. I wouldn't even be surprised if Sega Saturn is the end of Sega, and they have no Dreamcast. So setting the 6th Gen up, we have a DVD-compatible GameCube with backwards compatibility. PS2 would likely still give a huge fight, even if they lose....

    Alternate history, 7th gen: Clash of the HD dreadnaughts

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 August 2019

    I think Nintendo could win, but they wouldn't sell 101 million. More like 90 million. It's dependent on first-party. If Nintendo sucks at getting HD games out in the first two years, they might be in trouble. The price will help a lot, since it would still be cheaper than its competitors. But from a tech standpoint, it's a less unique console. I voted that Nintendo would win, but it's a big...

    Will Switch sales success lead to better early 'Switch 2' support?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 19 August 2019

    Sort of. It's dependent on if the game is designed with the PS5, Scarlett, and Windows in mind. In that case, it will depend on whether compromises are worth it. Switch 2 will likely be stronger than a base PS4, since I think tech will be there by 2023-2024. Keeping the hybrid nature will greatly limit how well the Switch 2 can perform on a technical side. But if that means Nintendo doesn't...
