    This just came out on switch, plays great. I got a legendary skull and steamrolled a bunch of levels. That was fun. It's $20.

    Caved and bought Metroid Dread a few days ago. Had extra money and couldn't resist. And I'm absolutely in love. If you loved Super Metroid, I guarantee you'll love this. Tons of exploration and secrets, plays smooth and fast, hella upgrades new and old, some good boss fights, and a legit challenge. I still probably have at least half the campaign left to complete, but it's already been worth the money for me.

    There's a lot of input lag (varying game to game) with n64 and OOT apparently has a problem with fog not being accurate.

    All I've looked at so far is Starfox but I was amazed how much smoother it looked than when I play on my N64.

    I guess that's because I'm playing it on a newer TV? Idk I don't really understand that kind of shit. But I am super stoked to have these games available to play on the go.

    No skin of my ass if the fog isn't perfect. I just like having these games in portable versions.

    Idk man. The fog looks a little weird. You'll probably throw your switch in the trash.

    I wouldn't pay the extra money they want for it but you guys do you.

    It'd be one thing if it wasn't additional money on what you already pay for Nintendo Online.

    Just teasin lol.

    I have no choice. I run the family plan that me, my son, wife, brother and niece are on. And a couple of us really wanted those n64 games on the go.

    Plus it comes with the Animal Crossing expansion pak that was going to cost me 25 bucks twice, for me and my wife, if I didn't sign up. So again, had no choice.

    I forgot about the animal crossing expansion, at least that adds some value.

    Yeah taking me a while to get used to as well. But those Fulkerson are going for 130 on ebay right now so I'd better get used to it.

    I heard the N64 controllers work with the Super Mario 64 switch game now that an update came out today.

    If I had realized how awkward the controls would feel I'd have gotten one when they released. Now they're out of stock till next year and selling for double price or more on ebay.

    I got Mario Party Superstars, and it's pretty great. I was a big time Mario Party 2 player back in the day on N64, so this is right up my alley. Thumbs up.

    I tried to play online briefly, and there was lag in the mini games that made it shite, but my personal wi-fi is really awful right now so I don't want to say it's the game's fault. Could be my own fault. When I'm in a better wi-fi situation I'm going to try it again.

    I've seen streamers playing it without a problem so I think it's your wifi. I've played it locally though and had fun with it.

    I finally made myself play Super Metroid a few months ago.

    I got really far and then got fucking stuck.

    Backing this up. Got it in October and I had it beat within like 2 weeks. Super fun and I already want to run through it again.

    Jackbox games are really fun with friends. We always end the night with a bunch of new inside jokes. I did better at the rapping one in Jackbox 5 than I thought I was going to. Tee KO is still one of the more hilarious ones, I think that's in 4.

    I'm actually sad that I have yet to do the rapping one. It seems every time I was playing with a group, they always did the rapping one when I was sitting out for a bit.

    It's obvious in hindsight but you need to be sure you can rhyme something with whatever word you pick for the 1st and 3rd lines and you should never use the help button because it picks something nonsensical that while hilarious never rhymes and makes no sense.

    My friend was trashing me but used that button and the next line was like "I've always wanted to tell you you're my best friend."

    Still a big fan of being able to use multiple vehicles. Also seems like there's a lot more to do as far as tricks, so that's pretty cool. Could lead to fun modes/missions where you have to out trick your opponent.

    Game can't come soon enough for me

    Thinking about buying a Switch with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Zelda Links Awakening. Anyone know if there's any differences between Mario Kart 8 for Wii U and the Switch version? I had the Wii U version and loved it but if the Switch version is identical, I might pass.

    I'm pretty sure it's the exact same with maybe some cosmetic differences. And I think all the characters/vehicles/etc. start unlocked, but I could be wrong about that.
    @Fro probably is the expert on this subject

    Ah, I see. I'll probably just wait for Mario Kart 9 then. Thanks for the reply

    The Switch version comes with all of the DLC courses included as a standard. So if you had DLC, there isn't any difference in the racing courses. There is probably a few new characters.

    The only significant difference is in battle mode. They made the battle courses way better. In the Wii U version, if I recall, they used normal racing courses for battle, which was dumb. The Switch version has normal battle-specific courses, so that makes battle way more playable. Of course I don't play battle mode much anyway.

    That is about it. But MK8Deluxe Online play is still popping. I was just on there last night. I love the Online Play in this game, so it has a lot of legs for me. Hence why I bought it on Switch even though I previously owned it on Wii U.

    Mario Kart 9 is rumored but not confirmed, so who knows when it will come out. I think it's at best a 50/50 chance they release MK9 on Switch, give that MK8D is still selling well. But who knows.

    Ahh, I think i remember hearing about the battle mode being improved. Yeah, they were pretty bland in the Wii U version. I never really played it much either.

    Surprisingly, the Wii U version is still active. Played it during the Hoildays and got a few full races. If I can find a cheap used copy maybe I'll get it for the Switch. Thanks for informing me about all that mate.

    There's a rumor of a new Fire Emblem game this year.

    Good. I've got like 700 hours in the other one.

    The rumor was from some guy with a 50/50 track record so who knows? I can see them starting development early on the new game since Three Houses was the biggest hit they've ever had but it would be weird to get two FE games for the same system.

    Pokémon Legends Arceus is a lot of fun and really refreshing because it's so different than every other Pokémon game. It's like a blend of botw (but not an entirely open world) /monster hunter(missions and side missions) /let's go games but in 3rd person(throwing pokeballs at the Pokémon) and classic Pokémon (battling, catching it you battle).

    I'm probably gonna get Arceus by the summer

    I just bought Origami King off eBay, but the seller messed up and sent me Splatoon 2. He said I could keep it and he is sending Origami King through priority shipping now.

    Come up

    I played Pokemon: Arceus all weekend. It is a lot of fun. Some tedious bits, but that is already built in to the DNA of Pokemon games.

    Seems weird to have other Kart racers on switch when they have Mario Kart.

    This switch sports thing should have baseball.

    Bowling will be fun though

    Pretty great Direct overall. Strikers is a sure cop for me and of course MK8 expansion. I’m all in favor of a 48-track expansion over a brand new game because they perfected the series with MK8. More courses, yes please.

    Advance Wars is a likely a cop for me - I loved it on GBA.

    Kirby is not usually my cup of tea but this looks like another great Nintendo first party platformer. If it gets good reviews I’ll probably get it at some point.

    Bringing Wii Sports to the Switch is only logical.

    Switch is on some king shit right now tbh.

    Finally got on board the Switch gravy train and got the expansion pack with the SNES, NES, Mega Drive and NES downloadables. Almost renders my SNES mini obsolete as has most of their games there lol.

    Good timing on taking a sabbatical from working!

    Just a few so far. Mario Kart 8 (aware of the new tracks coming up) Super Mario Bros U Deluxe and currently playing South Park Stick of Truth. Will get Smash Bros and the other South Park game Fractured But Whole soon.

    Anything RPG and platform-like really in particular will keep an eye out for.

    Good stuff. There’s a lot of good games, but Breath of the Wild is the best. And I don’t even like other Zelda games.

    Nintendo: In light of recent world events, we have made the decision to delay Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, which was originally scheduled to release on Nintendo Switch on April 8th. Please stay tuned for updates on a new release date.

    I'm disappointed since this is a game I'm looking forward to, but it makes sense, I suppose. The plot of the game is a non-distinct-but-sort-of-based-on-Russia army invading other territories.

    That's very annoying. The original date was March and then it was pushed to April. People need to just learn what context is again.

    It always amazes me the things that Nintendo has its finger on the pulse of.


    They don't want to be insensitive to those dealing with the harsh climate of military invasion. After all its in the news these days and what would the kids think about it?

    Also Nintendo discovered something called the "internet" in 2015. They are currently looking into it to see if video gamers might have some interest in utilizing it for gaming.

    We need to get some online Mario Kart going again. I have the expansion pack and apparently if just one person in the lobby has it then the new tracks get added into the rotation.

    Just tell me when.

    I’ve only played through the new tracks once but I plan to get some more runs in soon. That last track is pretty nuts (Ninja Hideaway)

    Yeah I played them all once on time trials. May play them a bit later too. Anyways let's all try and get together and do this. Tomorrow night let's say. I'll have a better idea of what time I'll be hoke from grocery shopping later.

    Dig Dug II is dope. Earthworm Jim 2 is cool, too, but I prefer the Genesis versions personally. I always felt the SNES versions were sluggish.

    Playing EJ2 right now. God I was addicted to those two games back in the day.

    I wonder why the first one isn't on there?

    I had always heard that EJ games might not ever appear on anything again because it was so impossible to tell who actually owns the rights to them at this point.

    But if they can do the 2nd one then they can do the 1st one.

    I've played a bunch of this on gamepass and it's a really good game. I highly recommend it.

    Bowling will be super fun at parties just like wii bowling was. I'll miss the home run derby game from wii sports. Maybe they'll add it in later.

    My biggest problem with it was I preferred real bowling. So much more fun getting 200+ irl than a 300 drunkenly after a UFC PPV.

    13 Sentinels is out today. I've heard that the story is really good so I'm excited to try it. A lot of people have compared the quality of the story to Persona 4 which is one of my favorite games.

    Never played it myself but I've heard Shining Force II is one of the best games on the original Sega Genesis.

    I used to have the super serve in tennis down and made so many people rage quit at parties. Hopefully it's similar on the Switch.

    Sonic Spinball made me want to vomit with rage when I was 8. So pretty much like every Sonic game from 2000-2010.

    I am so backed up right now. I need to finish Vice City and San Andreas so I can finally play Skyward Sword so I can get Triangle Strategy so I can get Wii Sports.

    I didn't watch today's Direct yet but I'm scrolling through some of the news.

    Breath of the Wild sequel (called Tears of the Kingdom) releasing 5/12/23. Yasssss.

    Pikmin 4 releasing in 2023. Yassssss.

    Goldeneye coming to NSO if you have the N64 expansion. I doubt this will get me to sign up for the expansion, but it's certainly a nice game to add.

    Unless you love Farming Sims and JRPGs, you can skip the Direct. The big announcements are what you've already mentioned.

    You can play Goldeneye online, only on the Switch (not on Xbox, for some reason). That's huge.

    The other N64 games announced were also very solid. Mario Party 1, 2 & 3. Excitebike, Pilot Wings and 1080 Snowboarding. Pokemon Stadium 1 & 2.

    God I love farming Sims and JRPGS. What a direct!

    New Fire Emblem? Fuck yes please.

    New Octopath Traveler? - Yes Fuck please.

    Reboot of Harvest Moon It's a wonderful Life? - Hey maybe I'll beat it this time!



    Now onto the gripes and bitches. My sitting around waiting on games to come to the N64 online that never do resulted in me recently purchasing Mario Party 1, 2 and 3 as well as Goldeneye...so fuck. Those games aren't cheap.

    NO Wind Waker/Twilight Princess? None? At all? That's bullshit. The only rumor for this direct that people gave a shit about for MONTHS. Nintendo please just take my money. TAKE...IT.

    Finally got through San Andreas and my full playthrough of all the GTA remaster. God each game is more buggy and glitchy than the last. San Andreas broke on a game of pool so badly it would never allow me to play again. Twice the whole game crashed and I lost my progress. Cars dissappear into the road and vehicles appear abandoned in the middle of the street because it didn't generate a driver.

    However SA is a truly great GTA game. I'll play it again one day. For now I've started my first ever playthrough of Skyward Sword which was the only mainline 3D Zelda I hadn't played. Took me 3 hours to complete the tutorial phase.
