I'm pretty annoyed with the Smash DLC. I would really like to have the full roster, but $25 for 5 characters and 5 stages is ridiculous.

Yea, Nintendo now knows what Sony is doing and when so they have more time to let faster chips mature and go down in price. So this year we will just get the smaller redesign and next year (March) we will get a more powerful Switch so Developers can Target along with the next systems. They will aiming for 4k 60fps on the new systems so maybe 900p/30fps for the pro switch?

hmm..interesting that they're reporting the more powerful version as a "next gen" device. Wonder what kind of power they're talking about. Hopefully 1080p 60 as long as its not a crazy drain on the battery.

a beefier switch to go along with ps5 and x2 makes sense.. they wont try to match their raw power but if they can do something close like this did this time maybe they're thinking they can get some of the third party games as well. make it BC with current switch stuff and you already have a library and dont alienate a large consumer base so soon.

It will be interesting because I think the Switch has only about 40% the raw power of the base X1 and PS4. If the Switch Pro has 40% the raw power of the X2 and PS5 then it will have to be around PS4 Pro levels of power.

If any of you remember XIII, the cel-shaded first-person shooter from the PS2/Xbox/GameCube era, it's getting remade and released in November.

The game was complete as it was release. Can't expect everything to be handed to people on a silver platter. It's DLC. You don't need to buy it. The game has plenty of characters as it is. Now Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite is a different story.

I wouldn't hold your breath for that sort of leap in portable gaming device specifications. I'm expecting baseline Switch performance with better power management and possibly 1080p60hz tablet. I honestly think the only reason Sony and Microsoft are jumping on the hardware with actual decent profiles this generation is because they're trying to prematurely antiquate the platform that's given BOTH of them so much trouble in retaining more hardware sales. If everyone has to develop for a mid-tier PC profile, Switch third party support is gonna get crap on hard, harder than it is now at least.

That game was pretty solid, but the final boss was ridiculous. The only way I was able to beat it was to exploit crappy AI. Will have to see how it goes.

Odd choices for Castlevania putting IV on but no Dracula X. Without the GBA ones I'll likely pass. Doesn't get my hopes up for the Contra Collection. No NES Contra will likely be a pass as well.

As long as Contra has C The Contra Adventure and Legacy of War (with sunshades for awesome 3d effects) I'm set.

It's not like I'm saying they should be free, but $25 is very overpriced. Somewhere in the middle, like around $12-15, would have been reasonable.

Don't they still have 4 more Castlevania games and 4 more Contra games for the packs to announce? Or did I miss the complete lists?

Smash DLC was expensive on Wii U, and I didn't but it then. No complaints on Switch version though, so many characters. I can't think of any character DLC that would tempt me.

Bloodlines was a good addition. Dracula X would have been nice though.

I don't mind the DLC price for smash. It's such an awesome game and we got piranha plant for free.

I think I got the fighters pass with the game combo for $80 and 85% eshop didn't seem that much.

Even full price that game has so much value with the DLC the characters are always very fleshed out. I remember getting Cloud etc in Smash U and it was fun.

Bottom line is people are willing to pay so why not?

In the "this is why we can't have nice things" dept., someone used the Smash Brahs stage builder to make a stage of a guy sitting on a toilet...with turd logs that actually drop down. Unfortunately I'm sure Nintendo will have it removed.

Oh believe me, I'm not. I just think that a lot of people may get their hopes up that this game will be playing next gen AAA games and I'm a little concerned that they won't be. I would be surprised if the Switch Ultra ends up being any more powerful than the base X1 or PS4. I think we're going to need to wait for the next gen Switch to see Pro level power.

A lot of gamers hated Dracula X for some reason. I enjoyed it, got to Dracula but never could beat him. One of the toughest bosses ever.

Just got Cuphead. Man, I knew I'd love this game based on the animation alone but it's so addicting. It can be really difficult but it's real rewarding when you beat a level, and I don't feel like I'll get too frustrated solely because it's just such a treat to look at. Glad I slept on it so that I could get it for Switch and play it handheld like this.

EDIT: Okay yah this one can get frustrating hahaa. Still love it though. But this tombstone idiot is really taking its toll.

I've never played it, but would like to. My only knowledge of it is when AVGN did that review of nearly all the Castlevania games (at that point). He seemed to think it was far worse than Castlevania IV and a huge step back. Either way, I still want to try it.

Yeah, I had a feeling there wasn't enough room to put everything that needed to be put on. SotN would have really been a compelling addition. Maybe they'll make additional releases. Probably not.

Drac X on the SNES was a bit of a bastard offshoot of the actual PC Engine title Rondo of Blood. I liked it, but it pales in comparison, and I think SCV4 beats it pretty handily. It's WAAAAY overpriced, lol, it really needs a digital release, on either or both platforms.

Don't have you have an Xbox One? If so you should have been playing this game 2 years ago, its incredible and its criminal for anyone who owns an X1 or Switch to not play it. Probably the most unique and original game that has come out this entire generation by a long shot.

As far as the bosses go, you haven't seen anything until the 2nd island and the first real tough boss, the amusement park guy shows up. The Queen Bee boss was the most difficult for me with the dragon guy coming in 2nd. When I did my all "A" rank boss run the freaking devil took me almost 3 hours to beat. Don't even get me started on the hardest difficulty, I couldn't even beat anyone on the island 1.

lol yah I'm quickly realizing frustration is real for this one. I had been meaning to snag it since it was released but never bit the bullet. I find I don't really play many games on the TV these days unless it's something like Spider-man or RDR2 - big sprawling open games. So when I saw that this was out for Switch it seemed like a no-brainer - it'll definitely get more play-time on that than it would have on XB1.

I never found it frustrating. Much like Dark Souls when ever I died it always felt like it was my own fault which imo is perfect for a game like this. The bosses are all so incredibly creative and unique that I was excited to start up a new battle just to see what they had in store. I'm definitely buying this physically for Switch and the X1. The two brothers who made this game earned my support twice over.

Crazy to think that just 2 brothers who had never made a game before and had no experience in game development made almost this entire game by themselves. Its one of the most impressive feats I've seen before in gaming. I know that DLC is coming (more like an expansion), this year and the devs also want to patch in online MP and, seeing how its Microsoft and Nintendo, cross play will probably be a thing.

I think there are 3 islands with 17 bosses and around 4-5 of those side scroller stages. Took me about 20 hours to run through the game and "A" rank everything along with a lot of additional dinking around.

How much will the Cuphead physical copy probably cost?

dustin11
GameTZ Subscriber Double Gold Good Trader Global Trader - willing to trade internationally

Not too sure. I think Cuphead right now is $20 and the devs said that they're not releasing the physical edition until the DLC is out and all bugs are taken care of so everything can be included on the disc/cart. So since it will have the base game and DLC it could potentially be a bit more, maybe like $30? Nothing confirmed though.

2 brothers until the end when they had to get a little more help with audio and to push the game through the finish line. In order to do that they decided to mortgage their house to have the funds available to finish it up.

Well the game is considered a roaring success right? Looks like they made the right gamble. They have any other games upcoming, or still just focusing on Cuphead for now?

I think it hit like 2 million between PC and X1 a few months after release, so it definitely was a gamble that paid off, but it was good to see that they were confident enough in their game to gamble their livelihoods on it. They say that they're thinking about what they would like to do next, but no work has started yet. They're one of the companies that I hope MS snatches up the most, them and Moon Studios (guys behind Ori). It would be awesome for these guys have the financial backing that allows them to work on a game without having to make such high risk moves.
