    Like I mentioned earlier if ARMS has a good netcode (if it even has online play.) I'll pick it up to play with you scrublords. I want to punch people in the face with Ribbon Girl. She kawaii as fuck.

    PLEASE BELIEVE I will be all over splatoon 2 though. I played the first one so fucking much. That game is going to consume me.

    Ok I dont know if Alpha's purpose is to derail the thread but he has succeeded in doing so for about a page. So we have established that AC likes paying extra for old stuff that he wants to mod and would gladly spend 2/3s of the Switch's msrp to play games that are playable nearly everywhere else. That's cool...that's his prerogative. The majority of us disagree with this. At this point there isnt anymore to add to this uhh...'discussion'. We should move on from this since I'm pretty sure most have already said their piece on it.


    So what are peoples planned purchases from whats been announced so far? Planning on getting MK8 deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, Xenoblade 2, Sonic Mania ( if its gonna be the exact same game across platforms...why would I not wanna take this on the go?), Splatoon 2, and NMH 3( whenever that drops). There's a couple more I cant think of at the moment but right now these are must buys. Cautiously hype for whatecer other surprises are in store at E3.

    Alpha just never wants to listen to anything, he was the same in the JoJo's thread just put him on ignore.

    As for games stuff I want to get when I grab a switch? Mario Odyssey, LoZ:BotW, Xenoblade, Sonic Mania, No More Heroes 3, FE Heroes, Dragon Quest Heroes 1 + 2, Octopath Taveler, Blaster Master, Wonderboy.

    I'm really hoping for a new Metroid, hopefully a dark dingy FPS type dealio. A new Bayo + other P* stuff would be great for me and anything from Vanillaware.

    Don't really need Japan to be interested if the west overwhelming bought the games. If the west could buy the next GOOD metroid game and it sold 3 mil...I guarantee that Nintendo would be looking into making a sequel immediately within the next few years afterwards.

    Damn I forgot about USF2...kind of want. Game should not be 40 though. If I could get the game at 30 without that tacked on hado mode...Id buy it with the quickness.

    They made 3 Prime games, and a bunch of 2D for handhelds. So what happened? Did they really not make a decent profit on them?

    I've heard rumors of GameCube games on the switch vc. i really hope its true. i also want all the relevant wii u games

    if Nintendo goes all out on the vc they will get a lot of attention. could you imagine if they added online+ leaderboards to old games? mk64 with online would sell like fucking crazy

    The ugly truth is that the metroid series...as great as most of the games are none of them have broke the 2 mill mark. So far I believe that Metroid Prime 1 is the highest selling game in the franchise at only around 1.5 mill. Metroid's fanbase loves the game and they're pretty loud but there aren't enough people out there that enjoy the game despite how good it is. I don't know what they'd have to do to get more people in on it aside from I da know...maybe making it more 'mature'? Putting more focus on the shooting? That'd be shitty as hell imo and it'd definitely alienate some of the fanbase but it sounds like something that would get some of the casual masses into it.


    Thinking about it now though...what they SHOULD do...is do what Sega is doing with Sonic Mania for the franchise I think. Get some passionate fans that love the franchise to make a new game. Hell go hire those AMR2 guys and just supervise them.

    Im interested in Arms and had nearly forgotten about it. Been hearing the game is actually really fun from previews so that might end up on my radar. Think it needs more characters. Fire Emblem warriors will likely be bought though I want to see more gameplay.


    Nintendo cares about Metroid...but there's only but so much care you can put into something as a company when it isn't printing money.

    They've already tried the FPS route with Prime it was pretty successful I've been saying for years Another Dev should just come in go full COD with the Metroid skin and call it one. Hell better yet outsource a small team from Bungie and make it Destiny Halo edition $$$$$$. Make the MP play like Halo and the Campaign be your typical open world Metroid experience in 3d. Also insert R.I.P. Monty Oum reference ala MC vs Samus

    So this is not real, and it's just a photoshop by a fan

    I am not even that much of a fan of Game Cube controllers my self but this looks cool

    Nintendo, make some limited edition Joycons inspired by pass consoles, and I am sure they will sell

    Sony ran away with E3 as Nintendo basically stopped an on-site presentation for the Nintendo Ditrect/Treehouse online presentation and that Microsoft don't realize we don't need our game consoles to double as a cable box, we just need it to play games.

    Fast RMX looks a lot like Episode 1 pod racer which was quite possibly the most underrated racing game of all time

    i played ARMS at the preview event. it's legit and the only reason i'd want the switch anytime soon. everything cost way too damn much tho

    Fast RMX is basically easier F-Zero + ikaruga color switch mechanic. It's still good for what it is.

    LOL xD hey is Pokemon Stars still a rumor? or Sun and Moon really coming to Switch?

    It is strange Atlus is cross promoting DSJ with SMT Switch. perhaps DSJ eventually will be ported to Switch? It makes sense to bring all SMT games to Switch.

    See, the extended SMT Switch trailer, was combined with the official DSJ stream, so they must be planning something

    im playing shovel knight right now and im digging it. I cant help but focus on how much i love the options the switch gives me. I probably wouldnt play this game on ps4 because of the lack of mobility. This might be my fav console ever in terms of its form factor.

    Wait so the statement FPS' makes more money than Metroidvania games is dumb? Especially given the context, discussing a series that has only had enough financial success to have semi consistent releases, was while it was an FPS?
