GameCube, honestly. The game was built with the Cube in mind. It was delayed so it could get ported to Wii because the GameCube in general just wasn't selling well anymore by that point.

Wii Remote and Nunchuk are implemented well enough, but they are definitely a tacked-on experience.

plus it's mirrored on Wii I hear. Still if you consider how expensive it is on cube and cheap for Wii. I'd get it for wii. I'm personally waiting for a switch remaster. If it never comes, I'll just get it for Wii.

I hear that, it being originally a GC release. Though on the flip side, I'm hearing great things about the Metroid Prime remaster for the Switch, and that was also a GC release.

I wonder which games are especially fun on the Wii, more so than on other systems, simply because of the nunchuk wiimote usage.

Link is a lefty, traditionally.

On the Wii version, they made him right handed to match how the majority of people would use the wii remote.

Doing that might impact how some areas play out (if you are on a narrow mountain pass, you might free be able to swing a sword on your left side, but not the right side because mountain is in the way), so they left/right flipped the whole game world.

Either that or it was easier to flip everything than to reprogram only Link.

I remember going to Best Buy a few weeks after the Wii came out when we heard a rumor of a re-stock. Sure enough, there was a line when we went before opening. We managed to get one, but forgot to grab Twilight Princess, which was just on the shelf. My brother and I were able to get a copy, but our friend wasn't able to at first because all the copies were gone, but then some lady put one back and he snapped that one up.

The Metroid Prime Remaster improved controls by giving the option for modern controls, but kept the options for classic and motion based. I don't recall many options in TP Wii. That said, the Wii version is fine to play. In some areas it's better than the GC version imo, in others not so much. Similar to BotW with Wii U and Switch.
Play it however you can for what you can afford if you want.

You know how in a mirror you're not really seeing what you look like. because you see your right eye on the right, but when you take a picture you see it as other people see you. With your right eye on their left. Basically they "FLIPPED" the entire game. Everything is left is right, and right is left. If link had to make a right turn in the woods, it would be a left turn in the wii version.

yep and as was explained above, they did it bc link has always been left handed. But since the majority of ppl are right handed they mirrored it for the wii since people would hold the wiimote with their right hand. Which would feel weird seeing link hold the sword with his left. I though I'd just add my thoughts on this topic even though it was already answered.

Good way of explaining it. Thanks.

I wonder if people who played the original Nintendo GameCube version noticed the change on the Nintendo Wii version. It's the kind of thing that might slip below the radar for some.

I'll definitely report back once I've finished the whole game. I'll be honest, I don't LOVE the wolf sections. They're ok, but I'd much rather just play as Link in the Twilight Realm.

If you're close they are easy to rack up. There are weekly and monthly tasks that take seconds to do, if that interests you.

They limit it 1 set per account, otherwise I'd have ordered 2. (1 for me and 1 for the kids)

Edit: Just got to thinking, I should check my wife's account and see if she has enough.

A friend of mine is looking to get a few Switch games for a couple kids he knows in a low income family. He doesn't know the Switch very well though, so he's asking me for recommendations, and I was wondering if anyone here can help out. I'm trying to think of games that are good, but can be bought used for relatively cheap. Unfortunately, that eliminates most 1st party games. The only one I've thought of so far is Immortals Fenyx Rising. The kids are 9-10. Any suggestions?

So, I tried NSO Gameboy Tetris multiplayer...

It was really choppy online. I can't imagine the original gameboy cable transferred much data, but that amount of lag and rollback stuff was just awful.

I then tried it with local wireless in the same room as the other switch, and while it was better there was still some noticeable stuttering here and there.

Anyone else have issues with it?

Anyone playing the Return to Castlevania DLC for Dead Cells? I just recently started playing Dead Cells again since it initially launched on Switch. Just played through DLCs (Fatal Falls, The Bad Seed, Rise of the Giants, The Queen and the Sea) in the last few days. Probably gonna pickup the Castlevania DLC tonight and play it. I forget how awesome this game is and how it continues to be supported. Switch performance is pretty abysmal now through when talking about load times.

So I’m charging my Switch via cable, not the dock. When I put it down last night, it was very low battery, so I imagine putting it down without powering it all the way off (just to sleep) drained the rest of the battery.

But now when I’m charging it, the screen stays on (black) with the little charging icon up in the left hand corner. Am I crazy or does the screen usually go to sleep while charging if you don’t touch it? Or is it normal for the screen to stay on to show you the indicator when plugged in as opposed to docked?

Little bit worried that my Switch may have crap the bed. It does SAY it’s charging, but I feel like the screen staying on would only work against it charging properly.

@theJaw I saw your post yesterday and was going to say it should go away when charging, but Anxious seemed pretty confident so I figured I was wrong. But I plugged my Switch in to charge just now and the charging indicator did go away after a couple seconds like I thought. It's in sleep mode though, not shut down completely. Maybe if the Switch is completely off, then the indicator stays? I'd test it but I have a game suspended right now.
SwiftJAB
GameTZ Subscriber Triple Gold Good Trader

I believe the indicator stays until the Switch has enough power that it can be powered on. In the case where a Switch's battery is completely drained, it could stay on for a while, especially if it's getting charged by a lower watt charger.

When I plug my switch OLED back up. Say I have 97%. Say the screen is off, the system is in sleep mode. When I plug it in the switch immediately "wakes up" to show the screen, then the charging icon shows on the top left. I like it that way because it confirms for me my plug made a successful connection. But I always push the power button on the top right to turn the screen back off. You should be able to turn the screen off if you want to.

Last year I had something similar happen were I was playing until really low battery. I then plugged it it to keep playing via cable and it appeared to just die. It seemed I could charge it but couldn't turn it on. I thought it was toast, but found some video online and tried what they said and was able to get it back. I think what worked for me was doing something with the power button, I'd need to look it up. If it comes to it just be sure you pull the memory card as it will delete the contents. You will also need to redownload game patches. But at least you can use it again.

It’s no worries now. After about a half hour it just popped back on. I had just never realized that the blank screen stays on while charging if it’s completely drained. Like Scott mentioned, usually when it’s low and I plug it in, it pops up for a second but then the screen goes to sleep, so I just got a little worried.

I like the look of the kickstarter game better than the new reboot look. Something about turning the maps into a board game is really off-putting to me. It's the exact same game, but now instead of commanding an army you're playing Risk. Hopefully they offer a different view or classic graphics.

Loving Octopath Traveler II. Started with Partitio. Played his first Chapter, then played Hikari’s first chapter after I found him. I like the route of my story so far. The “main” character (or, my main character) comes from the more humble, small beginnings and sets out on a grand adventure. Then like all those classic adventure anime shows, meets up with vastly more “interesting” characters with stories that exist on a far larger scale.

Pretty neat. Looking forward to what else is to come.

Anyone preordering or has already preordered the Zelda OLED Switch? I am on the fence, but would have ordered the Zelda Pro Controller.

I'd say do it now if it's still available. Will easily be worth what you paid it even if you sell it used, down the road.

Could always keep the receipt and return it later if you decide against it, unless you don't have the finances. Then I wouldn't recommend doing that.

Went tonight grabbed $10 eshop ($5 pro reward monthly) and asked about the preorder was $50 for the console so I didnt ordered it. I just opened a 2nd Animal Crossing Console in the past 2 weeks. Sounds like the Zelda Console isnt Limited may pop in and out like the Pokemon/Splatoon 3 OLED. I may be better off stalking @DarkFact post/topics when he sells his Zelda OLED after a few weeks of owning it for like $300 raspberry

The Zelda OLED has been on Amazon and Target for the past few days. And now Wal-Mart has it. So at least their consoles have been easy to get.

Hate to disappoint, but I thought the Zelda OLED was uggo, so I'm skipping :p

I'm presuming either a lot of other people agreed or they're broke

I think it's the left joy con that messes up the aesthetic.

I don't disagree. I pre-ordered just in case but I don't think I'm going to get it. Sticking to my white OLED.

I never understood the interest in getting a 2nd system just because it's a different color or has a design. You can have a switch and a used PS5/XSX or....2 switches that are, uh, different colors.

I like the 2nd switch for shared digital. My wife takes the switch over for Tetris 99 Pacman 99 and now Frogger. I dont even leave joycons on it as she only wants to use the pro controller.

Personally I would like to play more PS5 but it is on that same TV raspberry. I busted out the 3DS and was enjoying it so decided to hookup the 2nd switch.

On the switch colors, to each there own. I do like Zelda so it temps me to get the New Zelda OLED. We will see if I can hold off.

I think the blue and purple Zelda Joycon set would look great with the Zelda OLED dock.

It's it just me or has the eshop been sucking lately? I've got 20+ games on my wish list (mostly metroidvania and rogue like games), and I'm not seeing sales on my most wanted, and a couple have received just a little discount. I think axiom verge 2 was discounted from $19.99 to $15.99 a few weeks ago, and now rogue legacy 2 is offered for just 15% off from $24.99 to $21.24. Dang, at least give 25-35% off.

Skyward Sword joy con? They're on my ACNH Switch lol. They'll go back into the box when the Zelda OLED arrives.

Yeah, the skyward sword ones. I think those would look very nice paired with the white and gold of the Zelda OLED.

So my kid is getting much more into Nintendo and ... the switching between console is a pain in the ass.

I have a regular Switch, and a Lite. I have both of us on both accounts with Nintendo online accounts.

All the eShop purchases are under my account. He can play the game on the primary Switch under his own account, but when attempting to use his account on the secondary (Lite) console - it doesn't let him.

Is this expected or is there some other bullcrap workaround I need to do?

Really feels like this needs to be more seamless in 2023!
