Is Ninja Hideaway new? That's the only one without a game name next to it.

I haven't played it on 8Dx yet, but I believe it was on MK Tour.

The mall and the one you bounce on mushrooms are the best wii tracks.

I've always loved Mario Kart Wii, so I'm happy to see a bunch of those course coming over. I only played the tracks on 150cc, but so far, they seem extremely easy and safe, especially the MK Tour tracks.

Ninja Hideaway is definitely my favorite of the first group. There are multiple paths to take, and I feel like there is at least a little bit of a challenge. I think 200cc will be very tough.

You probably mean Mushroom Gorge. I was really good on that track in the Wii game but for some reason not quite as good in the Mario Kart 7 version.

I hated Mushroom Gorge. Bouncing on the mushrooms was way too inconsistent. Coconut Mall was just ok. These were the best (new) tracks in MKW, IMO:

Toad's Factory
DK's Snowboard Cross
Wario's Gold Mine
Koopa Cape
Maple Treeway
Grumble Volcano
Bowser's Castle

Not sure if these are new, but I thought they were pretty cool. N64 box art Keychain for 500 platinum points and $7(!) shipping. "Limited offer" Too bad I didn't have enough for both sets... :(

Me and the family played through the new MK8 tracks last night. I actually enjoyed them much more than I thought I would, despite them all being pretty easy. Choco Mountain was my favorite, it was so cool driving through a remake of that N64 track, what an upgrade! Ninja Hideaway was probably my next favorite, I liked all of the different routes you could take, and driving across those roofs was pretty cool. I really liked how the routes changed from lap to lap in Paris Promenade and Tokyo Blur, that made those tracks way more interesting than I expected. Coconut Mall is still fine. Sky Garden was the biggest disappointment. It looks incredible, but it's an extremely basic track with nothing realy going for it. Toad Circuit is basically another Mario Kart Stadium, one of my least favorite tracks in the game due to it being so basic. Toad Circuit may be even worse though. Finally, Shroom Ridge. I've always hated tracks that have vehicles driving around on the track, so I'm not thrilled that this Wave added another one to the game.

Hopefully, the overall difficulty is going to increase with each Wave. The cups usually get harder as you go in a MK game, except for the previous MK DLC where each cup actually had a mix of difficulty. I figured this new DLC was going to be the same, each having some easy tracks and some harder tracks. But since these first two cups are so easy, maybe each Wave WILL get harder and harder.

I like that too, it reminds me of Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed, except in that game every track did that.

> Coconut Mall is still fine.

I don't know that I like it as much anymore. Didn't those two cars at the end before the finish line move back and forth in the Wii and 3DS versions? It seems like they just stay still now. That whole section of the track looks empty now without all the Miis on the sidelines, but that doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things.

I don't really mind the vehicles on the road, but this track just flat out sucks. It's probably one of the least memorable tracks from Mario Kart DS too.

I think most of all I'm just surprised that they didn't add any anti-gravity stuff to these tracks. A lot of people seem disappointed in that. I wouldn't exactly say I was disappointed, just that it happened to be one of the first things I noticed when playing through them. But if they couldn't find a good way to include it then I guess it was better to exclude it than force it.

You're right about those cars not moving anymore. I was wondering why they were just parked there. I really like this course just because of all the jumping opportunities.

I'm looking forward to playing lego starwars skywalker saga on switch. But they have yet to release switch specific footage. Well they haven't realeased any specific footage. But you know they use whatever is the best graphics. What I mean is we've yet to see "this is switch footage" or "This is Xbox series X" footage type game play trailers.

I'm not going to buy the game until after it's released it seems. Because I want to see if and how much they had to downgrade it for switch, and how it runs.

The best thing about them adding folders is that now people will stop complaining about the lack of folders. Of course, I'm sure they'll still talk about back when the Switch didn't have folders, and how long it took Nintendo to add folders!

I do think it's something they should have already implemented long ago. But, I don't think it's nearly useful enough of a feature to warrant the amount of complaining people did over it.

I have at least 30 myself and have never had a problem quickly getting to the game I want. All you have to do is press left on the Home screen, then click on All Software, boom, they're all right there. Then once you play it, it's going to show up on your home screen as one of your recent games. Unless you switch back and forth between 10+ games very regularly, anything you're currently playing should be in your recent games right there on your Home screen. So it's basically just a matter of finding something in All Software the first time you want to play it (or if you start playing it again after a while).

Maybe I'm easy to please, maybe I'm a shill, but I find the majority of video game outcry is bogus or nitpicky. I pretty much only care about three things:

1. Is the game playable?
2. Is the game fun?

And to a lesser extent...

3. Does the game require a massive download to achieve 1 & 2?

Yeah I'm pretty easy to please too. I mostly just care about playing good games, which Nintendo typically delivers on. Their online features/performance are definitely something that deserve nitpicking, and they need to get better in that area. But being able to group your games into folders, just to satisfy your personal preference on organization? Nah...

A "good game" is subjective. This debate has become silly at this point. There are SOOOOOOO many good games on switch, and thus, I own a lot. I will say the folder system is not as helpful as I thought it would be since you have to go see all games and then hit "L" to even see them, by that time I've probably already found the game I want without the extra step

That was my point...folders don't save time, even if they were on the Home screen. By the time you glance through your folders, figure out which one even has the game you're looking for, click on it, then find the game in the folder, you could have just found it under All Software. Folders are purely a cosmetic thing. Which is fine if that's what you want, but certainly not an important feature that Nintendo should have added years ago.

To each their own I guess.

Having regular folders would be an awesome feature that saves time and helps organize both on PS5 and Switch for me.

I'm not going to rant and rave and go all woke gamer about it, I'm just saying for some of us it's a more important feature.

It's cool if you don't care about folders, but I've found them really useful. It's the one thing I don't like about the PS5 UI. With my PS4, I kept all of my physical games separate from my digital games (so I would know immediately which ones I could jump to without changing discs) and kept my VR games separated from everything else (partially to make it easier to jump between VR games and partially to remember when a game had a VR and non-VR version to play the VR version). It was also helpful to be able to separate out PS+ games from ones I actually owned to remember to play them before my subscription ran out. I'll use them on my Switch too to keep my physical and digital games apart. It's definitely more than cosmetic for me. I value organizational tools.

I dunno, I don't really see the need for the Groups the way Nintendo rolled them out here. They don't really even organize the UI the way a "folder" is designed to on a computer, it doesn't neaten up your library or anything. If that were the case, I'd be all for it, but the Groups don't appear on the main screen or even your initial library page for fast access. It's just that now you can choose to click forward one extra screen to see how you WOULD organize them if given the option haha. They really only seem to exist for folks who want to remind themselves how they'd personally label the games in their library without adding any real practical purpose.

BUT if you need them/like them, then more power to ya. I just don't see the need the way they're presented right now.

I would have less use for folders if cartridge based games didn't stay on the menu when the cartridge isn't in the system. (This is an intentional inconvenience to encourage people to stop buying physical and go all digital because it's more profitable. They do it on PS4 as well)

Two folders is all I need: Download games, and physical games.

The first thing I did after the update was create those two folders. I also made one for retro games like the Contra, Castlevania, and Namco collections. I also made one for puzzle games for when I'm in the mood. I may make one for rhythm games as well.

I was excited to start up Twilight Princess HD last night, but when I grabbed it off of the shelf I realized my copy was still sealed.

Just played around with groups. They'd be fine IF they let you hit L to access them from the home menu, or if the home menu displayed groups. As it stands now I'll only use them to see what I'll need to delete next to make room. This honestly feels like there will be an update later to add one of these options.

It's somewhat useful for me since I have hundreds of games. I made a group for games that I've beaten, and separate folders for RPGs and Metroidvanias. I have 80 RPGs...but I guess it's still easier to just organize alphabetically if you're looking for a specific game. But it will help if I'm specifically in the mood for a certain genre but don't know what I want to play.

for me, when I beat a game I'm not going to play again for a long while, I delete the game off my main menu. So I only usually have 5-8 game icons on my switch front page. I like it like that. Because it shows me what games I'm currently into.

I mean I get it, we all get tired of "gamers" raging about the dumbest stuff. When TLoU2 came out all I saw was garbage from users and "journalists" and it's like either play the game or don't. Same with cyberpunk etc.

The folder thing I get why some people don't care and I've gotten used to not having it on switch and PS5 and Xbox Series X. But I'm sure there's some idiots out there making a bigger deal about it than it really just being a minor inconvenience.

I came to talk crap about Nintendo finally having folders until I realized MS doesn't have them. But their full-screen tile system makes it easier to view your library vs. the simple horizontal layout Nintendo uses. I love folders on PS4.

I'll probably snag Kirby sooner than later, I really dug the demo, but I'm still not super sold on the setting. I sorta wish we got a trippy Dream Land-style setting for the game, especially given how "big" this game seems compared to other Kirby games. The somewhat "real world" post apocalyptic setting (that was apparently inhabited by humans at some point) just seems like such a disconnect compared to the usual Kirby fare. Got the same vibe from New Donk City in Odyssey.

Still, the game-play was fun so I'll probably be able to look past/get used to the setting easy enough.

Love it, hoping to get in some co-op sessions with benstylus and have it featured at OMG!Con. Of course, the only thing HAL could do at this point to make me not love them anymore would be to make a sequel to Metal Slader Glory (or something trashier).

Iwata would be proud. HAL still has it's magic.

Is the demo a good indication of the rest of the game?

Not really. It doesn't show off the stage variety. And there are a lot of Treasure Road challenges, which have you using the different abilities to earn rare stars. (Needed to upgrade the copy abilities.) There's a town where mini games unlock, such as fishing and the arena.

My son has really been enjoying the new Kirby. I'm looking forward to playing it some time after he's done with it.

yeah it's pretty good. Not the best platformer ever but very cute, colorful, and fun. A good romp.

I'm pretty excited about Star Wars Skywalker Saga right now, game looks so funny and really well done. I am just waiting to see how much of a downgrade the switch version is. Nintendo Switch is my preference but will play on PlayStation 5 if I have to.

Here's a trailer for a new Wii U game releasing later this year. This dev actually has 2 other Wii U games and 4 3DS games he plans to fart out before the eShop closes.

Kirby is really charming but if you're on the fence I say wait. I expect it to drop in value (used) after some time. There is some replay-ability but it's so easy to just to plow through the game I think many people will just move on.

It looks like there are maybe 7 lands (with several levels in each) and my son got into land 6 in 2 days (only playing a few hours a day). This included replaying some stages, doing some of the challenge stuff, powering up a bunch of hats(?)/powers, and having me do some co-op with him.

It's an extremely well done game, it's just so painfully easy and linear that I don't see us going back to it more than once a year.

I bit the bullet and ended up snagging Kirby last night. It is a little too easy (even on the more challenging mode) but I'm still really enjoying it. It's a lot less open world than I thought it was going to be based off the trailers, but that's fine by me. Platformers don't really need to be open world in my opinion.

My son beat it earlier today and is working on some bonus world or something now. He also thought it was going to be more open world, but he seems to be really enjoying it anyway.

The black light indoor area in the haunted house level looks really good on the OLED. But when I saw that part in the trailer I was specifically thinking about the switch OLED. (Keep in mind, it's not blow you away good like a $3000 OLED TV with an OLED demo, but it's noticeable)

I beat the game, plus the bonus world, with about 70% completion. The bonus world basically just has you going through some sort of remixed version of some previous levels. I'm not done with the game though. I want to complete the arena and haven't upgraded all of the copy abilities yet. I'm still missing a couple of scrolls, in fact.

So yeah, definitely a game you can beat in a weekend. But that just means I was really into it, since it usually takes me longer to beat 10-15 hour games.

As much as I would have loved for it to release this year, this does give me more time to finish re-playing all of the 3D Zelda games. My son is going to be super bummed though, he's really been looking forward to it.

As long as the BOTW sequel is as good as BOTW, I'll be happy. No worries about the extended development cycle, hopefully they can make it the best game it can be. Tbh I sorta saw the delay coming with just how little information we still have about the game.

With Sony's gamepass I wonder if Nintendo will focus more on their online gamepass like options.

couple new shots in that one minute clip for BotW2. better look at Link's arm and the Master Sword with a weird yellow glowy thing. just fun to get a bit of extra info into different aspects to ease the news of the delay.
