The game looks way better than the movie. Also the music was awesome in the trailer.

Smash Bros announcement coming soon (but well after Mario's release)? GC VC as well? Wii U GC adapter now quasi-functional on Switch. Would be a great announcement for the first week in Dec or mid-Nov.

I wish I had picked up that adapter back when they were still available at retail. The price was already high before this announcement, and now it's skyrocketed even more.

I picked one up randomly when they were up on Amazon like 3 years ago because I knew if I didn't get one right then there would be a good chance I would never get ahold of one again. I've still never opened it up but now I may have a reason to.

I would definitely do stuff like that all the time if I had the extra money, I just typically don't.

I'm sure if they have anything serious to announce they'll be re-releasing the adapter. More interested to see if the third party adapters work fine.

Yeah, I almost said "maybe they'll produce more of them" earlier, but who knows...

The MayFlash one has pretty solid reviews, the others look iffy though.

That's the one I've got. I did notice some weird calibration-related issues (and trigger depth triggering) using it with PC, but those could just as easily be about the controller and emulator settings than the adapter honestly.

I saw a review for one a day or two ago it may have been the mayflash? it had dual shock 4's, wii u pro controllers, xbox, and more working on a switch, but only as a player two? this could be a cheaper alternative to pro controllers.

I have a Mayflash that works really well for GC controllers on the Wii U, if anyone wants it they can have it cheap since I have 4 Switch Pro controllers and cannot stand cords.

They need to quit being doges and unlock the Wii U Pro controller. They are licensing 3rd party controllers without HD rumble and NFC. A third party needs to make something wireless around $30-35 without the bells and whistles. I'd own a pro and extra joycons if they weren't so damn expensive. As it is I'm waiting for better 3rd party options. Keeping an eye on that SNES looking one, but even that's up there.

I bought Snake Pass when it was on sale for $12. I regret it. It's not that it's a bad game. It's just not that fun.

There are a few other notable games that have minor discounts this week:

Axiom Verge - $17.99 (amazing game, sh*tty discount)
Shovel Knight - $19.99 or $7.99 for just the expansion
Tumblestone - $11.99 (another dropping puzzle pieces game a la Tetris, I have no interest but it has gotten great reviews)
Graceful Explosion Machine - $10.29 (not a great discount, but it's a pretty fun game...side scrolling schump...I go back to it a lot)

I feel that same exact way about Metroid: Samus Returns and Sonic Mania. I've been playing them recently but have no desire to continue either of them. They are both good games, but I just don't care enough to want to keep playing. I put around 2 hours into each of them and I'm ready to move on.

Yeah not really into those.

My next games are:

Mario
XC2
Worms
Runbow

Not sure what else is worth getting

You can pre-purchase Mario Odyssey on the eshop as of now. It will download and then unlock on the 27th.

I'm trying to be all digital, I mainly play in hand held mode so I like the convenience of not switching out carts. I only have pokken dx on cart which I think I'm gonna get rid of soon.

Yeah I've got all digital, but once I beat Mario I may sell or lend.

But MK8D, splatoon 2, arms, all digital because they're good MP games I'll always want.

Mario and XC2 I'll go physical, beat and sell like I did Zelda

100% physical for me unless the game is only sold as digital. I like having a collection of games displayed in my game room.

^ Ditto for me; being able to display them, lend them to friends and sell physical games is nice. I'm even holding off on some digital-only games in the hope that Limited Run Games or another company picks them up (ex: Golf Story).

Digital has been more appealing to me with the Wii U, and especially the Switch, but I still can't break away from buying physical.

I agree on Switch. I see MK8Dx staring me in the face after a session of something else and think I can play a quick battle or race, then I realize I'd have to get up to swap out carts so I don't.

I'm physical all the way, but for some titles I'm starting to wonder if digital would be better.


Any update on Worms WMD? Release date, price, physical release?

Digital is definitely more convenient, but I would still take a physical copy sitting on my shelf over the convenience that digital offers.

I am a pretty even mix. Cheaper games are typically digital, but I go back and forth on big games. Most of the time since big games are more expensive I go physical for the ability to resell.

For MK8D and spaltooon2 digital is a godsend because I can do fast battles without switching carts. And these games have lasting power, would never have sold the cart.

Worms MD is top of my want list I really wish we'd get word on any relassy

I went ahead and pre-purchased Super Mario Odyssey on eShop. I probably won't do that for any other single player retail game.

I'm sticking to physical unless it's digital-exclusive or a special case. Something like Sonic Mania is an easy buy, NBA 2K18 was digital because it was released earlier online. Otherwise any big title will be physical. Saves space on my card for games that can only be accessed digitally and I like being able to display the boxes while the console is modern. My Switch case also came with 2 little game holders that hold 4 games each. Having the whole case or just one/both of the little game holders nearby makes switching out cartridges not a big deal. Not that it is in the first place, ya big sissies.

I'm physical only. The only digital I do is gog.com simply because I have bought a bunch of my "talkie" point n click adventures on sale for like $2.99 each. PC is a bit different in that if I really wanted to go full legit experience. I would have to have a few different PCs. One with XP, one with win 95, maybe even an older PC with floppy discs. PC's are huge and take up too much room for that.

Yeah, I'm like 90% physical for 3 reasons.

1 - Cheaper. I don't believe there's any deals for digital versions, but there's 20% off all physical games with Prime or GCU. That's a big difference.
2 - Trade/resell. I like having the option to trade or sell the game when I'm done with it.
3 - Collection. I'm one of those people that likes having a nice collection of movies and games to display on my shelf.

The only advantage for digital I really see is that you don't have to worry about swapping carts, or forgetting them. I'm rarely playing more than one game at the same time, and I almost always play at home, so neither of those really matter to me.
