    I just saw a copy of this for 3ds on sale for $12. Contemplating buying it. Whatcha think. Worth $12?

    Oh shit yeah. Buy that thing.

    The more I get into it the more I enjoy it. It slowly adds character types so the complexity of strategy is just now coming in. And the whole SAL weapons triangle thing is still a big part of it.

    I'd say the best way to describe it is that it's a mash up of Advance Wars and JRPGs. But I'd imagine most people here havent played Advance Wars.

    Advance Wars was great, I was actually playing it recently before I sold my GBA with all my games.

    I like turn based strategy. I've got Mario Rabbids purchased and in waiting, to be played sometime this year after I finish Odyssey and get proper time with Smash and MK8D. Maybe I should try Fire Emblem at some point. Hopefully they put out a demo. I'm not that into RPGs though.

    Just found out a friend-couple of mine got me Odyssey and Octopath Traveler for the Switch, just waiting for them to come in.

    I plan to get Dead Cells and Hollow Knight as soon as possible, but...I'll be set on the Switch for a minute.

    Looking very likely that Switch Online is going to start making SNES games available.

    I think it’ll happen eventually but isn’t the SNES mini still pretty young? They should and will likely milk that longer before making SNES available on Switch. I hope I’m wrong but I don’t see SNES coming to NSO until 2020.

    they're stopping production on that and the NES classic. they said once the holiday stock runs out they won't be restocked.

    I guess the timing of that makes sense then. Surely they wouldn’t kill production this early without any plans for something else in place.
    The list of games that were datamined had some games missing from the SNES classic, but people reckon that’s probably due to licensing.
    When you think about it, the growing NES and SNES library in a Netflix style service for under £20 a year could be a killer app for the console. Let alone the actual online multiplayer subscription you get for your money.

    I don't get why licensing would be an issue for a game if it was available on the mini. I'd bet they just don't want to blow their wad on the first upload.

    To be poetic about it.

    I dunno how their licensing agreement works. Maybe it’s only for the sale of certain games via the Classic. Naturally if you then make a separate service selling those games as well, a new licensing agreement would need to be made.

    Oh totally. I would just assume (not knowing a damn thing about licensing issues) that something could easily be worked out.

    And also staggering out some releases of major titles would keep people excited about it for months to come.

    Like "omg is this the month we finally get Donkey Kong Country?!".

    I don't really care about Metroid Prime personally but this is fairly big news. They are re-starting development on the game which will push it back by years.

    On the other hand, they're bringing back the devs from the original games, so I guess its for the best.

    a lot of the key people from retro from the time of the trilogy are gone. game and art directors, senior designers, artists and engineers; all gone. so to say its going back to the original devs isnt wholly accurate.

    Strange move then to restart production all over again, in that case. I assumed it’s to give the new instalment a more authentic feel to it.
    Having said that, I still haven’t played any of the originals so I can’t say I have an issue either way. There’s still plenty of Switch games to keep us busy in the meantime.

    I’m still waiting for that damn Terraria port.

    i assume attaching retro to the new development was used as a way to lighten the blow of the news and sustain some sort of optimism cause i doubt most people are aware of how much the studio has changed.

    I suppose at least they're providing some sort of communication on the production. You have games like the FFVII remake where no one really has a clue what's going on.

    More news is definitely better than no news. FF7 has been in limbo for so long without clear updates that I've lost interest in it. If this means a better product, good. Better that than pushing out another Other M level game.

    A Switch release of the original Prime Trilogy would make sense to me as a stop gap. The last release of that was on the original Wii and I'd love to be able to play those free of motion controls.

    Saw someone on Reddit say that apparently Hyrule Warriors is the only port on the Switch that failed to outsell its Wii U original (besides Mario Bros U Deluxe, but thats too early to count). I guess the poor sales of the Wii U itself contributes to this, but I'm hoping this shows Nintendo there's demand for some of these re-releases, like the Prime Trilogy.
    If they can just re-release Mario Maker, Mario 3D World, Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, I can then pretend the Wii U never happened.

    Organized a Smash tournament with coworkers and friends and I came in second. Dominated with Little Mac and Chrom, lost to a very good Luigi player. I’ve been trying to get good at multiple characters and here’s who I’ve kinda settled on from best to least best:

    - Little Mac
    - Chrom
    - Incenoroar
    - King Dedede
    - Link
    - Ken
    - Kirby

    ive tried getting good with Capt Falcon and Wolf and I just suck at both.

    whos y’alls main(s)?

    In no particular order:

    -Marth/Roy
    -Ness
    -Samus
    -Richter
    -Snake
    -Mr. Game & Watch

    Marth/Roy and Ness are definitely my two best, and I'd probably put Samus above everyone else, but the rest just depends on the game.

    They announced that Fire Emblem will be a main focus of it. I'm hoping for some info on Luigi's Mansion 3.

    I don't think they said it would be a focus. It was just mentioned as one of the games they'll talk about. I'd imagine the others are a surprise.

    No you wont. That game is fucking DEEP. I mapped every area and got my self good and strong before trying Gannon but I didn't go looking for every secret or trying to get every last bit of armor etc. And I still logged 150 hours into the game.

    I paid for online but besides the NES emulator and playing multiplayer Mario Kart, I don't really see the point. It doesn't even have trophies/achievements.

    It is very lacking in features and I hope they add to it but for $20 a year I don’t have any real issues. $1.70 a month for online play and cloud saves, ok fine. I used my gold points to pay for the first year.

    Online Mario Kart is the best.

I probably won't go for full completion (shipping every item, making every recipe etc) because I'm not too bothered by that, but that might be a long term goal when I re-visit the save file later on.

    A free to play Tetris game with a sort of battle royale mode. Nintendo are geniuses.


    EDIT
    FF9 releasing shortly after the presentation ends.

    you think? cause it seems bleh to me. multiple games im doing well when suddenly im 'targeted' by a couple people and have my entire screen fill up with garbage blocks. moving your cursor over the 98 other tiny playboards to specifically target someone is terrible. hard to see at a glance in the middle of dealing with your own shit and actual movement is slow as hell. what the hell is the counter to getting triple targeted and having your shit fill up?

    Do you really need to play the first one before the new one? I'd imagine the sequel will incorporate everything from the previous game.

    Nonsense. There's no reason to play the Wii U version first when this one will have the same features plus lots of new ones. I mean I guess you are wanting to play the levels that were put out by Nintendo and by the public for the Wii U game but there will be no shortage of levels on the new one. It's not like there's a story you're missing.

    I have only played 1 game and I didn't even attack anyone I just focused on my own shit (and I finished 12th or something), but I was just reading you can use the right joystick for quick attacks, to target randoms or attackers or KO leaders. Something like that, so you don't have to move your cursor anywhere.

    yeah, i just don't understand this stupid tetris game and dont have the temperament for it. suddenly getting targeted by a bunch of people and having my bar fill up over 3/4 of the way in one shot isnt my idea of fun. i dont know how im supposed to counteract that shit.

    Well, it's a battle royal game so of course other players will come after you. That's the point of the game, lol. But like another user said, just use the right stick to try and counter people who are targeting you. My best finish so far is 7th place. And does it matter if you win or not? It's Tetris and that alone is what makes it fun for some of us. It doesn't look like the game even tracks your wins on the stat page anyway.

    This review of Tetris 99 had some helpful tips. Relevant section quoted below.

    http://www.nintendolife.com/reviews/...shop/tetris_99

    You’ll notice that, assigned to the right stick (or left, if you choose to change the setting in the options menu), are four different attack types: KOs, Badges, Attackers, and Randoms. If you just so happen to get attacked by multiple players at once, there’s probably very little you’ll be able to do to survive regardless, but mastering these four options is certainly your best bet.

    The names refer to the type of other player you are about to attack: Random will choose players at random; Attackers will target anyone attacking you; KOs targets those who are about to be knocked out; and Badges will aim for those who have racked up badges from KOing other players to steal them for yourself (these badges give you attack multipliers to deal more damage). As you can see, battles can become quite strategy-focused, and we sometimes saw better results when switching our mode of attack depending on our situation.

    The key to this is keeping an eye on the other 98 players, using the Attackers option to defend when you’re being bombarded, and KOing others when they’re about to be knocked out to earn badge multipliers. You can also manually attack whichever of the 98 opponents you like by using the opposite stick, although this is far too fiddly in the heat of battle; playing in handheld mode allows you to simply tap the opponent you wish to attack on the Switch's screen, so we’d argue this is perhaps the best way to play.

    In conclusion: everyone loves this game and Morrison is a little girl

    People have apparently data-mined the info from the game's code, which read:
    "Team Battle": "Two giant teams clash. Be on the winning side!"

    "COM Battle": "Battle against 98 bots. Defeat the machines!" (supports both 99 Battle and Team Battle)

    "Marathon": score attack -> 200 lines or endless
    Team battle sounds fun.

    omg is that the point of the game!?

    in FPS battle royale games you have various counters to being targeted by a handful of people. using the right stick to target my attackers or go for KO's and badges hardly did shit for me.

    psssttt, another point to battle royale games is to be the last one standing.

    i basically came to the conclusion that it's just not something I'm going to enjoy very often cause my reaction times and dexterity arent that good anymore, if it was ever good enough to begin with, to do fast paced tetris gameplay like this.

    I played a couple of games, and just barely made it to the last 50. I always thought I was fairly decent at Tetris, but never considered how much harder things get once you get all the garbage thrown your way. I guess I'm nowhere near as good as I thought I was.

    Yeah, saw a live stream yesterday on YouTube, and the level some people play at is almost frightening. I guess our only hope is for these elite players to level up over time, and hopefully we don't get matched with them in the future.

    EDIT
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W77DzfbfH2g
    This is the dude I was watching. Some of the stuff he was doing was unreal. Especially those double t-spins (I didnt even know it was a thing until I watched the stream).
