I played Pikmin 3 again on Wii U when the Switch game came out. I don't remember a timed blob area. Is that new to the Switch version?

Do the days count all that much? If I'm having trouble figuring out an area and it takes a couple days, will that eventually come back to haunt me?

I guess my question is, is there a time limit to the game overall? I know the characters want to find and do stuff on time but will the game end after a certain amount of days?

time limit is 99 days. More than enough time.

Kid's wanted to play "baby zelda", so I fired up Link's Awakening on Switch for them. I haven't played it in about 20 years, and remembered very little. So after they lost interest, I started my own game.

Get the first two things out of the way: I'm surprised they couldn't fix the framerate issues. Second I'm not a fan of the the blurry camera effect around the edges.

As for the game I'm having fun two dungeons in. Did they add stuff to make it easier, a little more obvious on what to do next? I don't recall it being this straight forward. I could be misremembering, but I thought it was more cryptic early on.

I haven't played Zelda myself yet but I know exactly what you mean and I didn't like it either when they used that same effect in Yoshi's Crafted World.

I was never a huge fan of the original. I only played it from beginning to end twice, so I don't really remember. I don't think they changed anything. Maybe we have just gotten better at the Zelda "formula".

Give me The Last of Us any day over having to watch the few straggling Pikmin that you can't find at the end of the day running up to the campsite right after you take off only to get devoured. Most depressing thing in video games.

haha, yeah. I manage to save most of them but there are a couple stragglers. Always sad to see, but I never reset the day just to save one pikmin. I used to be really bad about that sort of thing. I'm older now and realize I have finite time to enjoy unlimited # of amazing games. Can't be perfectionist any more.

Yah it's sad as hell but as long as you just keep dragging a few enemies and flowers back to the ship each day, there's really no reason to "retry" just to save a few Pikmin. Im locked and loaded with them at the moment, I just hate seeing the little pals run back to be abandoned haha. There's something less depressing about when they die in combat like bosses.

Yeah, the framerate issues were really annoying. The blur effect never bothered me though. In fact, I came to like it after a bit. It added to the whole

dream aspect.

I can't say for sure. I've played the original so many times and know it like the back of my hand. So when I played the remake, I feel like I mostly skimmed over dialogue and stuff like that. I think there may have been a couple extra clues here and there for some of the more cryptic stuff, but overall I think it was the same as the original. I remember it taking me a while to figure things out the first time I played it when I was a kid. In particular, how to get the key to the very first dungeon lol But after that, I kind of got the hang of it and figured things out quicker.

The tower dungeon makes you think a bit, though. Or at least it did for me the last time I beat it, like a year ago.

I still need to play the Switch version.

I never played the original and beat the remake over thanksgiving. Loved it but god it reminded me how confusing those original Zelda games were. I enjoyed the graphics a lot but can see how it could turn people off. I was curious how the original looked and watched some YouTube videos after I beat it. Was surprised how much they were actually able to get out of the GB hardware.

Yeah, this was without a doubt the most time consuming dungeon. All the damn crystal switches blocking off most of the dungeon, and many times if you make a mistake you have to navigate multiple rooms and switches to get back to where you were. I did this one way out of order getting the nightmare key very early and the fire rod last. Never did find the compass.

You're thinking of Turtle Rock, the 8th dungeon. The tower is the 7th dungeon. Both are pretty challenging/confusing, but I think 8 is the hardest.

A Zelda maker in the vein of Mario Maker would have some awesome levels.

It really wouldn't though. Dungeons are great in Zelda games, but they're just one part of the game. Playing dungeon after dungeon would get old, REAL fast. Also, a big part of Zelda dungeons is the puzzles, which have evolved to be more unique and complicated over the years. Zelda comes up with what they want the puzzles to be, and then they program the exact elements/environments needed to make those puzzles possible. It would be very different with a builder. They could include the most basic building blocks, but it would be very difficult to use those basic elements to form any kind of meaningful puzzle. I'm not saying there couldn't be ANY awesome levels, but the ratio of good to bad would be much worse than Mario Maker's.

It would certainly take some creative minds and the learning curve could be quite steep, but there could be some awesome levels that come from it that would challenge people to get more creative with their own levels. I don't think the scene would be as big as Mario Maker though. However, there is a lot that could be done if they stuck to a 2D/2.5D Zelda

A Zelda Maker could potentially be good. There's something similar in the eShop called BlockQuest Maker and while there is lots of garbage uploaded to it (the same can be said of any game that relies on user-generated content) there's still good stuff to play too. I haven't played it in around a year, I kinda want to revisit it now.

@ErickRPG Yeah this fudging blob crap is the worst crap. The entire game is so relaxing and just fun and then they just throw you into this nightmare. It's not even that it's difficult, it just destroys your Pikmin numbers over the course of a few days. Just seemed like a reason to drag the final part of the game out. Really, reeeaaaally annoying. About to beat it though finally.

Alrighty, that last boss was pretty gosh darn awful but I definitely do have a sense of satisfaction having finally beat Pikmin 3. I think I tried either Pikmin 1 or 2 on whichever console it was originally for but lost interest, then gave Pikmin 3 a go on the Wii U but the same thing happened. Always loved the concept, the graphics, the worlds and the characters but the gameplay was always too "strategic" for me (without the fun of building cities and armies and whatnot like other strategy games), so I always dropped out all the while knowing there was a fun game there. I guess at age 31, I was finally content with the gameplay to go along with the rest of the game and plowed through it since Christmas.

It's definitely been fun, and I'll have good memories of playing it while catching up on shows like Wilfred and Family Guy while gaming. I still have the two side stories with Olimar waiting for me though, so I'll probably take care of those before getting invested in something else.

Love it! If I didn't have other games to get through, I would continue to put more times into Hades (I'm at 3 completed runs...took me 17 runs I think?).

It's been a while since we've done this...what's your Nintendo wish list at the moment? Not games we know are coming (even if they don't have a release date), I'm talking completely unannounced stuff. My list has grown long, since they haven't released anything I'm interested in for a while now (plus 3 and 11 are extremely unlikely to ever happen, but I still hold out hope).

1) Mario Kart 9 - MK8 came out in 2014! I know they ported it to the Switch, but still, it's time for some new Mario Kart! I'd love to see them go full Smash Kart in the next one, bringing in way more characters from non-Mario games. Not so much for the characters though, I really don't care who I play as, I just like that it would open up tons of new level possibilities.

2) 2D Zelda - Not a remake, not a re-imagining, just a brand new 2D Zelda game with no (stupid) gimmicks.

3) Donkey Kong Country 4 - More like the original trilogy, not Returns/Tropical Freeze. I know this is incredibly unlikely, but it's staying on my list anyway.

4) 2D Mario - something new that breaks free from the tired NSMB formula. A 2D Odyssey with Cappy could be great!

5) 3D Mario - I'd be happy with 3D World 2, Galaxy 3, Odyssey 2, or something brand new! I do think the next one will be a sequel though.

6) F-Zero

7) Zelda: Oracle of Ages/Seasons remake - After playing the Link's Awakening remake, I wanted them to remake these two games in the same style. Now, I'm not so sure that style makes as much sense for the Oracle games. They're a bit darker/grittier than LA, and don't have the whole dream aspect.

8) 3D Zelda ports/collection - Ideally, we'd get a collection of all the pre-BotW 3D Zelda games, so the 3DSversions of OoT and MM, TP:HD, WW:HD, and Skyward Sword. But, it's Nintendo, so I know that's asking a LOT. Skyward Sword is probably the least likely to be included. They've not re-released that one yet, so that will definitely come as a stand-alone. Then again, it's hard to see them not releasing TP:HD and WW:HD as stand-alones too, we all know they'd sell like crazy. So, I don't really know what to expect, I just know I'd like to see these games become available on Switch. It does seem likely we'll see something in this realm this year though, since it's the 35th annivesary of Zelda.

9) Metroid Prime Trilogy

10) Yoshi's Woolly World port - Besides TP:HD and WW:HD (which I do think will find their way to the Switch eventually) this is the only Wii U game I care about that hasn't either been ported or gotten a superior sequel. It's one of my favorite games, and I would really love to have access to it on the Switch.

11) DS/3DS Player - something like the GBA Player, but for DS and 3DS games. Not exactly sure how this would work, maybe some add-on to the dock that could communicate with the Switch wirelessly, so the Switch itself would be the controller and bottom screen, and the add-on would display the top screen on the tv. It's not perfect, but I think it could work, and it would be great to be able to play ALL handheld Nintendo games on a TV.

Yoshi's Woolly World got a pretty solid 3DS port with some additional gameplay and cute poochy unlockable videos. There are some missing graphical effects compared to the Wii U one, but it's a really solid port, and you'd really only notice most of the differences if you had recently played the Wii U version.

I agree a DS/3DS player would be keen (who even uses that word nowadays LOL), but it's unlikely to happen. Maybe if more people bought the Wii U and got the DS virtual console games on there.

That being said, one of those Final Fantasy DS games also came out on the Wii (with both screens on the big screen, and motion control to simulate the touch screen. It... didn't work great. But it was multiplayer compatible with the DS version, which was pretty cool, and possibly the only game to do that.

I had originally hoped that by Nintendo combining their console and portable consoles into one that we would continue to see portable style games AND console style games on Switch. What I mean is, portable Nintendo handhelds were where we got 2d Zeldas, 2d Metroids, the Mario & Luigi series, and some other smaller games. I think Link's Awakening remake was in the style I'm thinking of. I would like to see some of those smaller games come to Switch. Breath of the Wild was great, and I can't wait for the sequel, but what about a Link Between Worlds style game to bridge the gap?

Outside of what Scott mentioned, the only other game not announced that I would like to see would be Pikmin 4 and a Mario & Luigi title.

It shouldn't be difficult to do both an RPG (story) and arcade mode. Honestly World Tour laid down some good groundwork. Buff up the story mode with training (RPG) elements, and keep the arcade side. Unlock a bit in each. I'm all in on reasonably priced DLC (like World Tour). The online was solid despite friend codes, so that could be boosted and another reason for NES Online. For the love of God add in best shot saved replays!

IIRC, that was the director of the Yakuza franchise, who worked on F-Zero GX. Not F-Zero's creator, who is Shigeru Miyamoto, who unfortunately isn't too keen on a sequel unless it does something new.

We are 5 weeks away from the release of the Super Mario 3D World port and we still have no idea what the "Bowser's Fury" content is. My wish list is: I wish they'd not wait until the last minute to tell us simple things like that. How many other companies do that? I would've pre-ordered by now, I just wanna know if that new subtitle means there is a significant amount of new content or not.

One of my kids has it, so I tried it once. It was nice to have a portable option, but one of the best things about Woolly World was the beautiful graphics, and it looked so much worse on 3DS. I suppose since they already ported it to 3DS, it's extremely unlikely to be ported to Switch :(

I would put this on my list, but I still need to get around to playing Samus Returns.

I'm still annoyed they didn't include it in All-Stars. I'd love to see it end up on Switch somehow.

I'm somewhat open to this, but idk. The SNES graphics were great, so it's not like it needs a graphical overhaul (especially since they would probably want to use the bubbly/cartoony graphics they've been using for 2D Zelda games for a while now). Plus, the game is just borderline perfect, I feel like there's not much they could improve, so there's really just room for them to mess something up.

I'm not too knowledgeable of Mario Party games. I played the first one a couple times way back in the N64 days, and then I've owned Mario Party 10 and Mario Party Switch, both of which I've played a fair amount with my family. They seem pretty similar to my vague memory of the original, what's gimmick-y about them? I will say though, most of the time we opt to just skip the board game mode and only play the mini-games instead. The board game mode moves WAAAYYYYYYYY too slow. They need to introduce some sort of fast play mode, where there's not a 10-second transition between nearly every single thing that happens.

Yeah, I would MUCH prefer the 3DS versions.

This would be nice. I'm looking to play through all 3 of the RE remakes soon, and would much prefer playing them on Switch in handheld mode.

Wow, I didn't realize it was so close! It's definitely weird that they haven't told us anything about Bowser's Fury. Maybe a Nintendo Direct is coming soon, possibly with some news on other games as well!

They launched the site, no new details yet. "Coming Soon"

https://supermario3dworld.nintendo.com/

I'm sure there will be a mini direct or a focused one in the next week or two.

I'm not preordering it without knowing what's new. If it's a new mode like in the Mario & Luigi 3DS remakes, I'd be on board. But paying full price to get a very minor content bonus is a tough sell for a game I already own on Wii U (just like NSMBU, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, etc.).

Like most of their ports, I imagine they're focused on consumers who skipped the Wii U. Other than Mario Kart 8: Deluxe and Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, there hasn't been any games really worth getting again if you've already played it on the Wii U.

Yeah, DKC: Tropical Freeze wasn't worth getting again if you played it on Wii U, as Funky Mode was not worth it. I did because I didn't want my only option to replay the game would be with the Wii U. I prefer the Switch hardware.

That said, even if the Bowser's Fury content isn't substantial, the addition of online play is, which I thought was confirmed for this port of 3D World.

Oh wow only 5 weeks? I haven't been keeping track. it looks like I'll be getting to another little "bundle rush" of new switch games. Mario 3D World, Bravely Default II, and Nocturne HD. There probably will be a couple other ones in the spring as well!

Honestly I like MK8 better on Wii U.

12 racers is already a lot of chaos, but 12 racers with double items is just stupid chaos.

Yes they brought back battle mode and that's great, but the racing on the Wii U version is 100x more fun.

Man I love 3D world. Played that all the way on the Wii U, but definitely getting it day one. Doing this game as a 4 player co-op is like the most fun thing in the world. $60 is worth it for how much value the game is.

On MK8D, I like the switch version much more. Same thing but you get more of everything, and it runs smoother. Also the Pro Controllers are badass so you already know it handles better.

I really don't mind them recycling the Wii U games, even though I actually played most of them, the Switch is just so much better. I wish they'd do Twilight Princess and Windwaker.

Hacker supposedly found new details on the next Switch. Take with a grain of salt.

Monster Hunter Rise demo supposedly out as well as some digital event for it.

I just started playing Zelda BotW for the first time yesterday and it is glorious. No spoilers please!


I'm casually taking my time working my way to .... I cant' remember. I just arrived at an Inn with some girl that runs it. Some guy in the village wants me to find a gift for her.


I love how the weapons vary in size and they are to scale on your back. It's fantastic.

Wish I could experience BotW for the first time again! (Played it on both Wii U and Switch and thoroughly enjoyed it both times.) Remember that you can do the Divine Beasts in any order, or not even do them at all. The game gives you so much freedom. Hope we at least get more info on the sequel this year.

Just going off of how far apart Nintendo typically releases new Zelda games, it could have came out last year. I'm pretty sure we'll get the sequel this fall.

Yeah the open world feel is crazy nice and I like how similar it feels to Wind Waker (those little camps of the creatures and the skulls on their treasure chests).

It looks so huge. I randomly started finding the Kokoro dudes prior to finding the big maraca shaking one, so that was a pleasant surprise. Got my first horse. I love that it moved back towards cell-shaded graphics. The music is SUPERB. The little lilting piano tunes that come in and out are just so well done.

The map looks overwhelming when I open it up.

How many shrines are there? Really digging those.

Do weapons keep breaking throughout the whole game? Is there anything (besides the Master Sword which I'm sure I'm going to find eventually) that won't break after a few confrontations?

A lot of people complain about the music but I thought it was great. The old-school Hyrule overworld theme would not have worked in this game.

120

Yep

There are 120 shrines in total, and 16 (I think) more were added in the DLC expansion. And yeah, weapons breaking is the biggest complaint people have with the game. The Master Sword doesn't break but you can only use it for a certain amount of hits before it needs to "recharge". You can increase the durability and strength by doing the Trial of the Sword DLC.

Edit: Scott beat me to it!

If you have any amiibos, make sure to use those to get free stuff, especially if you have any Zelda themed ones. It's kinda dumb that some stuff is locked behind amiibos, but some of the outfits are pretty cool.

Just before you asked for no spoilers for Breath of the Wild, but then go on to ask for things that are very, very definitely spoilers.

I think he meant more along the lines of story spoilers. Wasn't it already revealed how many shrines there were prior to release? Maybe I'm remembering that wrong.

Divine Beast related:


Can you really not complete any of the Divine Beasts at all? I guess then you'd miss out on 4 extra heart containers, but that would be all? At the end, don't they weaken Ganon, or something like that? I'm currently blanking a bit regarding the ending. I remember fighting Ganon's bull form, while using the bow of light. But, hmmmm, can you really skip the Divine Beasts entirely? Though it would be a shame to do so. Several times while going through those I was simply amazed at the mechanics, mind blown. Worth experiencing.

As someone picky about spoilers, something like asking about the number of dungeons/shrines, I would not consider that a spoiler.
