    I pulled the trigger and got a Switch. I have the console and a micro SD. I have a screen protector and pro controller coming in tomorrow. I still haven't decided which game to get first. Probably best I get something that my nephew can play.

    Either of the Mario games(Kart, Odyssey) are good. I'd give Sonic Mania a look too. It's only $20, its file size is under 400MB, and it's not a battery hog. Sonic Mania in portable mode is godlike. The Switch version is the best version imo.

    The only real flaw the switch version of mania has is the slight inconsistent performance with the special stages in comparison to the PS4/Xbone/PC versions of the game.



    Dunno if patches have smoothed it over since then but there was the home button delay issue that has since been fixed.

    Mania on the go is amazing regardless.

    So if I bought a retro game (i.e. Super Metroid) for Wii U, can I play it on Switch if it ever becomes available for Switch?

    What he said. What they MIGHT do is an upgrade fee like with the Wii U. I'd be fine with an upgrade fee personally.

    Ok yeah... this game RIVE... it looks like you have to just be Jesus Christ to make it through some of this stuff. I'm at what appears to be the last boss and dying probably 50 times here. The slightest misstep means it is immediately all downhill for you....the slightest missed jump, or wrong choice of where to jump, etc. etc....on top of that there's shit on the screen that instantly kills you.... on top of that the boss has regenerating health....so missed opportunities to damage the bitch just drags the fight out potentially forever.

    *sidenote-- this is just the "normal" difficulty setting, btw :lol:

    edit--and the ultimate bullshit fuck you move--I just beat the muthafucka... but the goddamn lava that comes down on the right side instantly kills me so now I have to do it over again.

    *hell yeah he's down for the count! ....sheeeeit...... global rank #91 on the leaderboards....

    and of course that's not it...now there's "The Great Escape"....and so far this looks like it's yet another thing that is borderline impossible---edit---but hell yeah I made it! What a thrill-ride of a game, man... goddamn...

    Sidenote--SLAIN: BACK FROM HELL is apparently coming to the system as well. :tup:

    Been having a blast with Xenoblade 2 about 12 hours in. Some quick pro's I like is how the commands/arts are mapped to buttons so it's more instant to pull them off, and the combat is really engaging, once you get into fighting enemies that take a few min. I also like how sidequests give you bonus exp that you spend when you sleep at inns. So you can legit hoard a bunch of a bonus exp, and use it when you want. I bumped my team up 4 levels doing that. Also if you are up to it, there's a salvage system where you get random treasure and can sell in bulk for big cash. You aren't always guaranteed to get good stuff, and you may end up barely profitting because you have to buy these cylinders to salvage, but its a cool additional money making option aside from battles and quests.

    Some quick cons are the navigation. XCX had an arrow you followed, and I think XC did too? But in this game you have like a marker on a compass and it tells you how far you are as well as if you are above or below that target, is fine for the most part, but sometimes following it will run you into a dead end but its whatever.

    And I dont like how they broke down maps so much in fast travel, its cool but also like eh, wouldn't mind it being more streamlined

    I'm in the process of setting up my Switch. Merging funds from my Nintendo Network ID is a fucking godsend. I was able to transfer over the $8 I had on it.

    Better last than never. Had a balance left over from my 3DS copy of Shantae which I transferred over to buy the latest one on Switch. I'll forgive Nintendo if I can just get all my virtual console games back from my Wii U at least.

    So far loving Xenoblade 2, only downside is I wish there was a way to improve the common Blades. I am at the beginning of chapter 3 so maybe there is something down the line but some of the low level Blades I release I wish I could have kept and improved them to be viable.

    Also at least so far overdrive is finite item so don't use it recklessly transferring a blade you are likely going to not use to another character.

    While I won't play it right away I should get Xenoblade 2 as soon as I can. Xenoblade games tend to go out of print quickly for Nintendo games.

    Im 20 hours in at the start of chapter 4, game has been consistent fun. One thing I'll see is, fighting enemies is not the way to level up. Even fighting enemies my level or a bit higher, i get shit exp. I really think fighting is for getting sp, wp, money etc. Because after doing a few sidequests, and story quests(idk if story quests give exp, i assume they do) I go sleep at an inn, and I'm able to boost usually 2-4 levels.


    But that's just what i've noticed, i could be wrong though lol

    I started Odyssey yesterday and made it to the wood kingdom. Just how many moons are in just kingdom? When I was in the Sand Kingdom I was finding lots of moons. I'm on my third column and I have no idea how many are left to collect.

    Each Kingdom has there own number, you only need a few to advance out of the Wood Kingdom but go back around and you can find a few, also there is also a hidden section of that kingdom with a couple moons available if you want and don't mind dark places.

    The combat in Xenoblade 2 appears to have a high ceiling, which is interesting for a JRPG. I'm over 20 hours in and still trying to figure things out.

    I got a second rare blade and I'm trying to unlock Superstrength level 2. You do it by killing a specific unique enemy; I know which one it is and I've killed him twice but the skill won't unlock. So my questions are:

    1. Does the blade have to be in the active party (she is)?
    2. Does the blade have to land the killing blow?

    EDIT: I think I figured it out. There's a node I have to unlock to open up the second branch.
    EDIT 2: Branch is still locked. In any case, I have to get it opened before I can get Superstrength 2.

    Press the - button and press Y to bring up the lists of each kingdom. It shows you how many moons you have and which ones you have, and how many you don't have. It also will list which ones you have hints from Toad or the Parrot.

    Mario Odyssey is probably the best single player game I've played in like 10+ years. The game is just incredible and the level design is impeccable. You don't realize just how perfectly designed the levels are until after you beat the game and go back and keep playing for the after-story fun. I played my Switch on 2 flights until it died and I finished all the moons on New Donk City and probably played another level for like 45 minutes. It's just crazy how much shit is in just one Kingdom. And I also have a new appreciation for New Donk City after hating it the first time I went through the level. But again, a lot due to just how smartly designed the damn level is.

    I dont think the Blade has to end the killing blow, i think the most you have to do is maybe just have them equipped

    Toys R Us is having a buy one get one 40% off sale on ALL video games right now. In-Store only I believe. Pretty solid deal. I picked up Arms and Pokken Tournament DX

    Two games i was looking to get but dont got the funds to go ball out on games right now smh.

    Btw there is a guide out for farming core and rare summon cores in Xenoblade 2, i tried it and it does work, just time consuming. But if anyone is interested it's here

    I just really started into XC2 and got past the prologue. Even if the game runs in 720p docked its still a really pretty game.

    Definitely wasnt expecting THAT to happen so early in the game...was kinda like 'Already? Im only like an hour and a half in!'

    Currently still really early (just started chapter 3) but have the funniest Rex/Pyra Build.
    Rex is focused on Attack/DPS, with immediate access to art at start of battle which does 100% damage on back hit. Pyra has high attack stat plus...
    + A core that gives 100% additional damage on first attack.
    + A core that does 70% additional damage on suprise attack.

    Basically this leads to me running around stabbing unsuspecting people/monsters in the back for a retarded amount of damage. It’s not always going to be practical (not very useful for facing groups and pretty pointless against most bosses) but I’ll be damned if it’s not satisfying.

    There is also a speed-run mode on RIVE... for some reason it seems like few people bought this game; I am not sure why... perhaps there's just too many other great things out there to pick from at the moment, I'm assuming. Anyway, there's leaderboards for all that shit of course... I did stage 2 and was #10 rank apparently....but only out of 45 people :lol:

    ...now the addiction to high scores and faster times begins...

    Played a preview build on WiiU. Was pretty solid as far as I remember but as you say there's just too much to focus on at the moment. I have it on my wishlist though.

    sheeeeit, I was just intending to get another e-shop card today...then I saw that Azure Striker Gunvolt pack right there in the store... the physical version of that is something I've been waiting on for quite some time so hell yeah that sumbitch is mine now...apparently that was their last copy too.

    The card was for Slain: Back from Hell which is due to be out tomorrow.... but Phantom Breakers is also due out tomorrow; I'm not even sure which one I want first but I'm definitely getting both.

    *ha, I'm at that point now (13 things/icons-- 12 are games; 1 is the demo for 9 Parchments) where it continues on to another page of games to show everything....so yeah...12 games now. The Goddamn Nintendo Switch, folks. :clap:
