You sometimes can go by TFs though. Stadia was supposed to be more powerful than a little less than 2 X1Xs and the reason why its not doing full 4k now is because that part isn't really ready. Google was retarded and launched the thing pretty much in beta. You do see differences between some games on the PS4 Pro and X1X though which shows the higher TF console pushing games like RDR2 at full 4k vs Pro's checkerboard and lower quality visuals. I think if they made a pro and only went like 1.5x OG Switch's power it would be a terrible move because at that point you're at pretty much X1's power and that console hardly hits 900p these days.

I don't think having an additional little nub ala new 3ds is quite the same as saying, hey this particular game will only run the better/higher performing switch.

The pro's definitely coming but I don't think they're going to release games that don't run on the baseline system. I liked the N3DS too, but people are stupid.

Nintendo seems like they're really not good when following other developer's lead when it comes to tech but when they're doing their own thing thats when they really shine. Its one of the reasons why I think they're never going to need to chase console power again and will only do enough to keep the 3rd party devs happy.

What do you mean by collectible? Horde things on the shelf and try not to touch them for many years as they gain value? Or just gather more and more games and build a library vs selling/trading games more quickly?

I think what the Switch does well is that since it's portable people are more likely to hang onto games because it's nice to have some choices when traveling. I fudging hate Arms but if I'm gonna be stuck on a plane with my son, it may come in handy. So it's not going anywhere even though we don't play it because daddy curses too much.

But if this about putting a sealed copy of Mario Odyssey on the shelf and never opening it...then no.

I mean more just like building a small library of good games to display on the shelf AND play. I just like the Switch portable as a console more.

You guys are nuts dreaming of 4k on Switch Pro. There's no way they're doing that given that it's the current norm to hit 720p handheld, maybe 1080p docked. The increases needed for 4k (even just docked) would be a next-gen hardware leap. And it wouldn't really help the visual impression when games are as stylized as Luigi's Mansion 3. There's no real need for 4k tbh.

I think the Pro is gonna be about lower power consumption, fixing the fudging trash joycon reliability, and speeding up load times. If that's all they do, at $350-$400 it'll sell.

The power draw from that thing in portable mode at 4k would require a battery that you would need to wear like a back pack. Just look at the X1X and how well it was built, now you're talking about shrinking that thing down to around the size of the Switch.....thats crazy talk. Something like that won't exist for probably 10 years, and by then it would probably be ran off the cloud.

I figured Pokemon was holding back Pokemon in Sword and Shield for an expansion pass or a Poke'Pass if you will. That's where the money is, sadly. Not in the actual game, but in the DLC or microtransacations nowadays. It was only a matter of time before Pokemon fell victim to it's corporate seductive dark side.

I would prefer the switch pro land some where between the v1/v2 and the lite as far as size goes. I want a bigger screen and better performance but I don't want bigger joycons or the overall system size to increase. If that's the case I'll hold out for the switch lite pro lol.

If they do make a Pro model Switch, I can't imagine them making it any bigger. The Switch is already huge. Not just the screen, but also the total form factor. My kid's both got a Switch Lite for Christmas, and while I haven't played anything on it yet, just helping them get set up, I very much preferred the overall size of it. It just felt much better in the hands. I think if anything, I'd rather them go in that direction.

I think the Switch can stand to go a few inches bigger, also it is what she said.

Switch Lite has a smaller screen than most flagship XL phones. I think iPad Mini size is probably a good stepping stone before the full fledged iPad sized Switch.

I'm sure it has been mentioned here, but Redbox is getting out of the game rental business and they are selling off their lot of games.

How do the South Park games run on Switch? I remember when one first launched it had lots of bugs, including one that deleted your save and also had some audio issues. I'd hope it's patched up by now?
They're both on sale in a bundle for $23.09 on PSN, and it'd cost $35 to buy them (separately) on eShop, but I'd kinda rather play them on Switch. Should I just save the money and get it on PS4 instead?

Pokemon, the only game series that gets away with releasing a slight variant of the same game every year, while releasing 2 copies at the same price with minor differences. Imagine if EA or Activision did this.
longhornsk57

The difference is each game is a complete game on it's own and you don't have to pay more to beat it.

Also this is the only game Nintendo does it with. Whereas every EA game is an ass rape.

They're also consistently well-received from the core fan base, which can't be said for the others.

There's a reason annual releases exist - because certain gamers do want a new installment of the games they enjoy each year. It's just that folks like EA/Activision don't release consistent quality products whereas it seems Nintendo/Pokemon do.

This is so true. I'll even see the same people buying the same COD, Madden, NBA 2K, FIFA, etc. every year and doging about it. I mean, it's ok to complain about aspects of a game you like overall. It's just funny.

To be fair, they can't win either. If they keep too much the same, it's stale. If they change too much, it used to be better, and they should change it back.

Fans in general are fickle and gamers are no exception.

I understand the need for DLC but $30 a pop for each expansion is steep to me. They might as well just have come out with a 3rd Pokemon game this generation at $60. I cannot imagine both expansions tallying the length of a full game. I mean if it does then that's fine, but I doubt it. And does anyone else find it shady that only a month or so ago Game Freak states they have no plans to add anymore Pokemon to Sword/Shield and now this? I'm not really buying the whole this was for the fans because of "backlash". Seems too convenient for me. I think they had this planned from the get.

Oh, are they $30 each? I thought it was $30 for both. That changes my opinion quite a bit. I don't think they showed enough content to justify that much money. Maybe a follow-up game for the same price would have been better after all, especially when it would be easier to get it on sale that way.

I wouldn't call it amazing by any stretch of the word, but I'll say the iconic GCN games that used it used it well, and make it feel like it's fine. Like, I've never wanted to plug a Playstation controller into my machine... unless I was playing something like Street Fighter.

I think the GCN controller was the best with triggers up until then, but then most subsequent controllers with that triggers were better (if that makes sense).

I don't have time to play every game I want to play so I have to choose, and if I'm going to jump into a trilogy then MPT is the one I'm going with over Bioshock. Bet we'll see a Mass Effect trilogy at some point on the Switch too. That will be a substantial time sink.

^This. I nerded out on bioshock and read the book Rapture which is a prequel to bioshock one. It's basically an underwater utopia that has gone horribly wrong. The og bioshock is by far the best story of three imo.

I've tried getting into the series, but Infinite's the only one I played start to finish and enjoyed a lot. I might start there if you're looking to see if you're into it.

I know most people enjoy the atmosphere of the first game better, but Infinite was a really nice entry point I think.

As someone who has still never played Bioshock 1 or 2, Infinite is one of my all-time favorite games. The setting of Columbia could very well be my favorite setting from any video game, period. From the visual aesthetic, to the underlying malice, to the cultural tension, it all ruled. And then the way that it changed and developed just as the characters did was perfect.

The story is fantastic for the most part, until the themes and message get all wonky in the third act when...


...the characters initially set up as the oppressed civilians of Columbia end up becoming radicals and the primary threat, considering the story goes through lengths to show that they really were oppressed and suffered great injustice. While that is actually sometime true to life, it only works to throw off the story's themes that were established earlier in the game (what with the apple and all). Just sort of a pointless swerve solely for the sake of swerving, and to add a big action set piece at the end.

Seemed sort of like they wanted to go with the more artistic ending with the Comstock reveal but then got cold feet and decided to go the smash-up route instead. Makes sense for it being a video game (and that last battle admittedly was fun), but makes less sense when taking the story as a whole.



But most of the story, including all the Lutece twins and Comstock stuff (especially his ending reveal), was masterfully done. Just wish they stuck that landing.

By "real" do you mean one that is set to talk about multiple upcoming games? If so, I don't think so, maybe not next month. But I do absolutely expect a Nintendo Direct focused just on Animal Crossing, which as of right now is the only upcoming game I'm hyped for (I understand not everyone is).

Nintendo has E3 just about 5 months away, so I would expect maybe one or two more directs before then at least to get people hyped and to let them know what they can expect to be released this year. So far they just have Animal Crossing as their main game this year so they're going to have to start talking about their plans here soon to keep interest.

To be fair, that's pretty much the only Nintendo game on the horizon if you don't include MPT or BotW2 which don't have release dates/timeframes. They definitely need to announce some stuff soon. I don't think they can wait for E3.

Yeah, but I mean across all consoles. Come March 20th I am dedicated to Animal Crossing. Everyone else is looking forward to that Cyberpunk game, but I couldn't care less. Animal Crossing is life.

BotW2 dropping this year would be wild, but I'm not getting my hopes up. Seems like the big 3D Zelda games are usually announced way in advance, and then take a while from then to actually release. It would be a welcome change though yes

I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a new 3D Mario game this year. Most likely Odyssey 2. I really thought we'd get DLC for the first one (like new kingdoms, not just that balloon game). I think the only reason we didn't is because they already had plans to work on a sequel, so they saved new kingdom ideas for that one. A new 3D Mario AND BotW this holiday would be nuts.

i kind of expect a direct with some updates on other games before E3, its likely Sony is going to unveil PS5 prior to E3 so they can show off before MS reveals the XSX presumably at E3, so kinda figure nintendo will want to show what they have as well.

Is it just me or does it feel like the Turok character a midget or something? Look how low to the ground the gun is. In any other game it'd look like you were crouched but there is no crouch button in Turok.

If you've never played a FE game before, can you just dive into this one? Are they connected at all or what's up?

These "routes" are they the exact same story in 3 ways?

looks like its going to be a set of content accessible in any of the three routes, new area of the monastery to explore and 4 new characters. the ashen wolves arent public knowledge apparently so we get to find out why.

yes you can play this one. its not connected to any of the other ones. some of the games are connected, and some take place in the same worlds but many years apart. some have easter eggs and throwbacks, some of the names in three houses are mashups of old names and some of the countries are named for old characters like Brigid. Three Houses is super beginner friendly to the series as well, its easy and they made it very beginner accessible to break it to a wider audience. its amazingly well done, the characters are top notch, the japanese and english voice actors are super, the music is awesome, and its a fun experience. the future is definitely bright for the series.

FE 3 is a sequel to FE 1, FE2 takes place in that world but in a different country. FE 5 takes place in the middle of FE4 and are the first two games in the overall timeline of Arachnea, one of the worlds in which alot of these take place. rumor is they will be the next remakes, they have been remaking them in order so far. FE13(awakening) takes place in that world but in the future, Chrom is a decendant of Marth from FE1 and 3, and one of the antagonist is a decendant of Alm from 2/15. FE 7 is a prequel to FE6 and shares characters. FE8 is pretty much its own thing. FE9 and 10 go together and takes place in a different setting than the others. FE 11(shadow dragon) is a remake of 1. FE12 is a remake of 3 and was in japan only. FE14(fates) is its own. FE15 (echoes: shadows of valentia) is a remake of 2. FE16 is three houses. FE17 is rumored to be a remake of FE4 but we'll see, it hasnt been announced.

the only thing you definitely dont want to play without playing its predecessor is 3/12,10, or 5

also of note is that FE1-6 never came to the US, but the remakes of 1 and 2 did. the remake of 1 didnt do well so the remake of 3 didnt come here, but you can play patched rom with a DS emulator. thats also neccessary if you want to play 4, 5 and 6. the GBA game we got in the US as "fire emblem" is FE7. as before its rumored FE4 is getting the remake treatment next, which i am really hoping it does, and hoping they include 5 in the package since it takes place in the middle of that story.

yes, everything takes place in the country of Fodlan, the routes follow the lord of each of these three countries. some events will be the same, but each give you different parts of the story and fill in blanks the others dont tell you. Black Eagles has a split in it that creates a 4th route.

The only game I have played like that where i was actually willing to "replay" for a different aspect of the story is Nier Automata because, well it's fudging awesome and it expands on the story etc. I am wondering if this is anything like that?

I've never played any other variation of FE except 3H and thought it was an amazing game. I didn't feel like I couldn't relate to the story, and tbh had there been reference to other games I didn't even know it.

ya there are a lot of callbacks to FE4 like the story having a timeskip, the "flame emperor" is also what Arvis is called in FE4. but the references arent something that take away from the game if you didnt know them.


and ya...like for instance blue lions is going to fill lots of information about things that the other two dont, golden deer expands into the past lore (recommend saving golden deer for last), black eagles then shows you even a different side (black eagles for life) and then the split route puts you on a route similar to golden deer with some slight differences. the lord of each of the countries involved are all interesting and Byleth's (you) allegience and who he/she sides with can affect the outcome.

all the houses have great characters, the characters are really well done and are relatable and awesome. you can recruit most of the characters to any of the houses but you'll never be able to use them all in one play, there arent nearly as many as some fire emblems but usually some of them in the games with really large casts are uninteresting and not great units anyway, so a tighter cast allowed them to really give them personality and flesh them out. getting to know all the characters across each route was great too. there are some characters i always recruited and used regadless of which house i played because they are either good or the paralog chapters require you to have certain characters to unlock them and they are some of the best parts of the game and usually give the best rewards.

I want to give Three Houses a try because I enjoy RPGs and that one seems to have a unique premise but I'm very apprehensive to anime-leaning graphics for some reason. No idea why, I don't mind anime overall even if I haven't seen much, but games with anime-style character graphics just look like a dime a dozen... not overly visually appealing and done to no end.

Is the game good enough that it'll crack through my anime graphic bias or what?

I haven't played it, but as someone who can't stand anime style graphics I'd play it. I'll never play Code Vein because that's just anime to the 1,000% level. Valkyria Chronicles 4 is another one way too anime looking for me. Also, I hear FE3H has some Persona like elements which sounds neat. a lot of SRPGs lack anything other than battle.

I wonder what the reaction would have been if Edelgard had been the 5th DLC character. I don't react because I haven't bought any of them. I only play Smash sparingly and couldn't see myself paying $25 for a few extra characters that I wouldn't even use. If I bought any, it would probably just be Hero from DQ.

You're absolutely right, and why they may not make as much money overall, they also don't require constant upkeep, and they have less competition.

Devs need to realize they don't need to choose. There's still room for AAA single-player experiences, and they can make a ton of money off of them.

I definitely think we'll see MK9 on the Switch, but after looking at this, maybe not as soon as I'd hoped.

It's a damn shame too. I'm not saying that because it's a bad game, but it's kinda worn out now. Hopefully the people still buying it are doing it because they skipped Wii U, but for those who didn't we're basically playing the same game since 2014.

Ideally I'd like Mario Kart to get the SSBU treatment at the end of Switch's life, and get a release that includes all characters and tracks the series ever had. Then a year or two into whatever the next console is, try something different with the series (I know to a lot of gamers "different = scary", but I'm not saying scrap everything and come up with something entirely new).

It makes a lot more sense to focus on dlc, Odyssey 2, Breath of the Wild 2, Metroid Prime 4, DKC Switch, etc. I'm not saying it definitely won't happen. I'm just saying Nintendo has no reason to start production on it when it's predecessor is still in the top-10 (probably top-7 or 8). With the development cycle for games these days, it will be a very late release, I'd say, if it released at all.

Mario Kart seems to me a game that could just be updated every couple of months with new tracks and maybe a character or two. Then once a year introduce another feature. If the expectation set up front is "hey guys, we will not make a net new game for another 4 years" I wouldn't mind paying for add ons

I'm not really sure what else they could try, but I'm open to new ideas. Turning it into more of a Nintendo Kart would make sense at this point, since the franchise now has quite a few non-Mario characters. This opens the door not only to new characters, but new levels and new items.

It's not 'new', but I really wish they would bring back the unique Double Dash mechanics. Having 2 characters per kart that you could switch back and forth between was really cool. Plus, the funnest thing, unique items for different characters, like the giant banana peel or giant Bowser shell.

ACNL is a game for collectors that has a simple social aspect, and allows the gamer to be creative in a wide variety of ways. There is an insane amount of content to collect. It's meant to be played 15-30 minutes a day, nearly everyday, but as said it's easy to drop back into if you take weeks off.

I would enjoy a Super Metroid remake, but would much rather a brand new 2D Metroid. Something related to Fusion would be great! I know a lot of people aren't crazy about that one, but I love it.

Paper Mario 64 and TYYD are 2 of my favorites so this is ok with me. Someone made a comment that Nintendo is listening to their fans more in recent years. If you look at Mario Odyssey is the type of game Mario fans have been asking for since the gamecube days. So perhaps Nintendo is getting smarter. If they do this we need to support them and buy it day one. The Paper Mario fans have wanted this for a decade +.

FE:Three Houses DLC update:

https://www.rpgsite.net/news/9353-fire-emblem-thre...

More details on Fire Emblem: Three Houses' side story DLC 'Cindered Shadows' have surfaced on Nintendo's Japanese official website. Notably, the page mentions that once this DLC has been downloaded, a Side Story entry will be added to the game's main menu, and its save data will be completely separate from the main story. The maps in this DLC are also said to have a lot of gimmicks, making the overall difficulty a bit more challenging from the base game.

This side story will have a different gameplay flow cycle from the main game's monthly training and end-of-month battles. While you could scout and recruit other students in the main story, Cindered Shadows will have you fight with a pre-determined set of members. Note that according to Nintendo of America's trailer description, once you complete the side-story, you'll be able to recruit the new characters into the main story.

I'm not super into Pokemon myself, but I thought this was an interesting debate in another forum, so I'll post it here. Again, this is not my opinion. It's just something for debate.

When it's all said and done, Pokemon (Sword/Shield) is a $180 game. Change my mind.

I would say no, if you want a complete game its $60. Meaning you can play and complete a full game for the cost of $60. If you want a complete experience its $180 I guess (I assume this is $60 per game plus DLC).

It's $60, or $90 with DLC. With online trading there's really no reason to buy both Sword and Shield unless you're a hardcore collector/fan.

ya and it sounds like it will be structured a little differently too not following the "month" structure of the main game, but once you play through abyss you will be able to recruit the characters into the main story and use them so thats cool, Hapi and Constance will fit right into the harem run i'm thinking of doing possibly as an ironman.

i'm also not that super into Pokemon myself so I have definitely not been following all the news recently. But do you really have to pay for two different DLC packs if you have both games? That seems incredibly asinine.

I would like to point you to Metroid Fusion and Super Metroid. Zero Mission's alright.

Samus Returns was about the worst possible outcome for a Gameboy remake IMO, the changes were very, very silly. I'd prefer a new game I think, but let's not shoehorn in parries and slow-mo this time around please. If it's Super Metroid, it deserves a sober translation.

Considering I find Super Metroid near perfection, I would not want it remade in 2d. I'm too afraid they'd gimp it like Samus Returns, nerf the wall jump, and force feed you all the secrets. That would piss me off. Even if they gave it the "Link Between Worlds" treatment I don't think it would feel different enough to warrant. Give us a new adventure.

Now if Retro was up to the task to make a Prime game loosely based on Super (think Force Awakens/New Hope), I could get excited.

Having played Super Metroid basically for the first time last year, I think there's a little room for improvement, but probably not enough to warrant a remake. I wouldn't mind the ALBW treatment, I loved that game and thought it was really cool making a brand new game using the same world as an old classic.

Hmm, I personally think Fusion is very overrated. It's the precursor (in my mind) to the linear progression that was so lambasted in Other M. Exploration is almost non-existent in Fusion...pretty much exactly what KC and Zane are worried about with a Super Metroid remake. They hold your hand and tell you exactly where to go. That's not Metroid. I think Zero Mission is the far superior game from the GBA.

@JD It works for the vast majority of games. Mostly just not games that use motion or alternate control setups, like 1-2 Switch, Nintendo Labo, Mario Party, etc. The only notable game I can think of that doesn't fit in the above category but still doesn't support it is Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee.

I don't think they feel cheap at all. They feel like plastic because they are, but so are other controllers. The only issues for me are the size and how much they flex when on the console. As far as the size, I'm sure they designed them with the Japanese market in mind. The flexing is just a necessary evil.

I thought the Xbox One controllers were nuts at $59 but they at least last.

The joy-cons my fam has bought at $69 have been reliable for about 6m at best. One righty doesn't go up when playing certain games (WTF?) and some lefties are suspect past 10'. What?

So it's totally random but terrible in multiple ways.

We have 2 sets of L/R joy-cons, and although they all "mostly" work, our confidence is about 50/50:

"I got you" = "I was repeatedly pressing A and nothing happened" = "Sigh".

If these have a small shelf-life I'm fine with that. But the cost is ABSURD for such poor quality.

No. But there are other variations out there that don't need the rubber band. Etsy, and there's also a $35 that was done via crowd funding. That rubber band one is $8.

Joycons are definitely way over-priced. They shouldn't be more than $50-60 IMO. At least Nintendo has been fixing them for free, but it's annoying to have to go through that at all. What's most frustrating is they still haven't fixed the underlying issue in new Joycons.

Speaking of, I just recently got a pair back that I sent off to Nintendo. Under service performed they put:

Cleaned, tested and inspected all components.
Repaired/Replaced Under Suspicion

I suspect they put that same blurb on every single form, but what is that second line even supposed to mean?

You are doing yourself a great disservice buy not purchasing some sort of attachment to play handheld and attached to a pro controller. I haven't touched a joycon in 3 months. People said it would be bulky and heavier but it feels great and it puts less strain on my wrist. The joycons are really the only negative to the switch, I've had three sets and 3 different issues.

Joycons really don't bother me when playing hand held. I haven't ever found myself wishing for a better method because the one I'm using is so poor.
