    Finished Mario Odyssey. I really enjoyed it. I at first didn't like how easy it was to find moons, like sometimes they're just out in the open for free, but then I realized just how many moons there was, so hunting them became fun. I was expecting the moon count to be like stars and shines from 64 and Sunshine, so that threw me off at first.

    I did sometimes have an issue with depth perception. There are times when the camera pulls back too far. I had this problem the most at the Luncheon Kingdom boss and the final level. Never had this problem in Mario 64 or Sunshine.

    I did like the final level though. I wish there were more stages with that level of challenge.

    Mario Odyssey post-ending challenges are at times sweetly, infuriatingly tough. It gets Mario Sunshine hard.

    (And Mario Sunshine wonky in some of the challenges, but that's another story.)

    I beat X although I never got the most ready made broken Mecha Ares 90 but I beat the main story and most of the major side quests. I have yet to beat the original Xenoblade though, I was thinking I would do that before picking up Xenoblade 2 but the most recent trailers and previews have gotten me stupid hyped. Even know the stylized 'Rare Blades' shown off are going to be a lot more difficult to get I still want to pick it up immediately in December this week while I can still get that Prime discount on pre orders.

    Mario Odyssey’s post game has been fantastic for me so far, currently at about 600+ moons and there’s still a bunch of stuff to do.

    I can't remember if it took me 260 or 360 hours to 100% the map.

    Beat Super Mario Odyssey a few days ago and I'm the post game now collecting more moons. Currently sitting at 395. Not planning on collecting every moon in this game but I"m going to collect what I can. Game has been amazing and the ending sequence kinda makes me want a game starring Bowser. The only nitpick I could have about this game is the OST on the whole is lacking in comparison to previous titles. There's definitely some good tracks here but I feel there aren't going to be many tracks that stick with people in the long run. Jump up Super Star owns this game for free lol. Bonneton, New Donk City Daytime, Fossil Falls, Steam Gardens, and RoboBrood Battle were some other standouts. Of course some of the returning themes were pretty good with the one that stood out the most being P*redacted* C*redacted*.

    So far Koizumi is doing a great job with this IP...just need the sounds guys for this game to step it up if they're gonna be filling in the role for Koji Kondo.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Mario_Odyssey#Development

    Apparently this was Naoto's first time being the lead for a game along with some help from Kondo and Shiho Fuuji. Sooo Mahito Yakota was nowhere to be found on this game at all. That guy has been doing a great job music wise over there so it's kinda disappointing he didn't do anything on this but I'm guessing he's got his hands full with other stuff.


    Also Spoilers in response to ReggieHadoken's post
    Definitely gonna have to agree with that lol. And it's real awkward walking around the Kingdom's now while she's on her vacation after being kidnapped after she just left without telling anyone. You're of royalty...PREEEEEETTY sure you can't do that especially after just being kidnapped and nearly forced into a wedding.

    Bowser also had all this time go steal shit for his wedding but didn't bother to steal a priest or a man of the cloth to wed them. Guessing he didn't care he we gonna consumate the marriage his own way I suppose.

    Okay the treasure made of coins power moon in the Wooded Kingdom can eat the biggest of dicks, the solution to that is so obscure, costly and absolutely not worth the effort.

    Currently around the mid-700’s, taking longer than it used to for me to collect stars since there’s a lot less of them and the ones I missed are generally better hidden, I’ve fully completing some of the worlds though.

    LOL that one was fun to do. They definitely gave you hints about it though, but yes, was definitely a "different" type of moon to get.

    What I love about getting the moons is that you can do it all without having to resort to looking shit up online. I find it a lot more fun to get hints from Toad than looking shit up online because you still are figuring out the stuff on your own. I'm around 550 moons I think and I have yet to refer to anything online. It's just not necessary. If anything I will need to look up where the purple coins are on some levels more than the moons. I have 4 on Cap Kingdom that I have no clue where they are and I'm betting they may randomly be floating around somewhere. I've got like 4 completed Kingdoms I think with all coins + all moons, excluding the "short" Kingdoms.

    Get a decent battery bank , something like the Anker PowerCore 26800 or Vinsic 28000mAh Power Bank
    The only thing these batteries will not do for you is power your Switch while it's in the TV Dock

    A Charge Dock or a Stand would work

    It's only a little over 4 hours so if I get 3 hours out of it that'll be enough. Gonna just chill a bit too.

    Is any other location doing a bf sale on Disgaea besides bestbuy? Just looking for a backup since bestbuy stock seems dried up atm.

    I got a feeling many physical release games will be a tough buy with this system.

    i dusted off the snes classic and 100%ed smrpg between yesterday and today. working on yoshis island now.
    for whatevever reason, smrpg wasn't fun to me this time around. probably because i powered through it and know it like the back of my hand. smw felt like that too. dunno maybe its because i'm older, have a lot going on in life, etc. but it felt like i was just going through the motions.

    i might put yoshis island down and run through ffVI. anybody else not a gamer like they used to be?

    Yeah I know that, but even since 3ds, eshop has always had garbage deals. The only time a good sale would come up is if it was Atlus games or Ace Attorney series, and i remember these two specifically because they were often and the only good sales lol.

    Just saying its weird they aren't putting their 1st party on some type of digital discount for holiday season. I know Nintendo shit typically sells throughout the console's life span

    Wow Nintendo still hasn't gotten the memo about digital sales. They could make a killing this holiday season buy putting all their 1st party shit on eshop sale.

    But this is what's on sale on Switch until Dec. 11th lol. Sad but I may pick up Setsuna and/or Bomberman. Bomberman would be $25 for me since I have like $15 sitting in my account.

    US eShop Switch:
    1-2 Switch $39.99
    Super Bomberman R $39.99
    I Am Setsuna $23.99
    Puyo Puyo Tetris $24.99
    Lego Ninjago $41.99
    Lego City Undercover $27.99
    Disgaea 5 $49.99

    Most of those games are already on the eShop.
    Also Nintendo rarely put eShop games on Sale.

    I guess I was just trying to say I don't know why you are expecting them to do it like that's the norm. The norm for them is to NOT have sales.

    There are in development by San Disk and others a 2TB Micro SD cards, but they are far from going out to the market yet.

    The SDXC specs allows for 2TB max, That is more of a theoretical max rather than a solid max as no one made a commercial 2TB SD card yet.

    I haven't. I was supposed to at least put a dent in it but it got stupid busy throughout the last week and a half, THEN I was in charge of cooking last night for turkey day.

    Damn rip. I think im on a good track? I was the same level as the last boss I fought. But I feel like I should be stronger. Leveling in this game takes so long imo. I know my friends recommended just renting level 60 characters and taking on strong enemies, which I did do once lol. and still took a while to level

    Oh damn, that's a good idea. I had mining resources going, but I fucked up their work flow when I tried to get back in to it last month. Got the PS4 en route this weekend that's supposed to be delivered on my day off. Gonna try to get to this before Monster Hunter World drops.......
