    Also I just realized by googling this video that it affects the games, too, not only the system menu. Last time I've seen this was on GBC.

    I wonder how successful this game will go. And what new characters would you all want to see if in DLC or sequel?
    I think it'll do okay enough. I don't see it being a huge, breakout new IP success for Nintendo like Splatoon was though.
    Welp looks like it's time for me to eat shit.

    ARMS is selling far better than I expected in Japan. Over 122k copies sold so far in it's first few days (via Famitsu stats which includes download cards).
    To put this into perspective that's more than SFV's and Tekken 7's first week sales combined. And the best opening week sales for a fighter since Tekken 6 and Vanilla SF4, which were on two consoles at launch.

    It's not quite the blowup success that Splatoon was (~150k on first week) but it ain't far off. It should also be noted that Nintendo has a stranglehold in Japan right now, dominating the charts in both software and hardware sales.

    Still waiting to see how it does in the west however.

    Any of you pick up Shantae Half Genie? Is it any good? I was looking for a new game to pick up for the Switch and I remember hearing about it. Okay, well, I was actually looking for a Metroid style 2d game, but I don't think any are out on the Switch.
  • MaryokutaiMaryokutai Joined: Posts: 942
    Shantae is a Metroid style 2D game. Shantae herself handles more like a Castlevania character but in the end it's based on Metroid design.

    It's also pretty good but they'll be releasing a bunch of DLC during the coming months so it might be a good idea to wait until the physical release is out as that might have them included. You could always play the game that came before (Pirate's Curse) in the meantime which is the best in the series so far in my opinion.

    You know that super happy, catchy song from Super Mario Odyssey "Jump Up, Super Star!"? Bulby did an 8-bit version of it.

    I have this for my Vita. It's great. Lot of fun, has good maps to explore, controls well, music is great, and graphics are very charming. Hope the DLC comes to Vita, might have to rebuy the game for PS4 lol.

    Hm? The physical copy is already available for other platforms, so you might be in the right thread after all. Switch will get the physical release sometime during fall/winter.

    Yeah, all the Shantae games are very good, if you like platform games and Metriodvania style exploration (but to a lesser degree then the 2D post SotN Castlevania games or most indies in that genre) then it is perfect.

    bought and play ARMS now...I like the game but needs so much more for it so I look forward to the updates. My only issue is I really wish they let you change the controls for the buttons. A small thing but I wish the dash and jump were on the ZL and ZR buttons.

    Dunno if its been mentioned but since the switch now works with wired controllers. You supposedly can buy that pokken gamepad to use for some games. May make a decent cheaper substitute for playing any neo geo fighting games or ultra sf 2.

    I picked up Mighty Gunvolt on the 3DS and it is pretty dang god. Has a Mega Man feel to it but the weapon customization system makes it feel like it's own game.

    Good news, finally buying my own Switch and some games since I have enough time and money now. Anyone got some game recommendations outside of the obvious stuff?

    what are you planning to pick up? Obvious stuff is going to be Zelda and MK8D (if you've already played it on wii u then its possible to skip but regardless it's still a great addition). Splatoon 2 comes out at the end of this month which I'm pretty hype for. I've been hearing Arms is pretty fun but it's a shame you missed out on the demo for it to try it to see if it was your cup of tea. USFII is still a bit high in price. if you want strat rpg's on the go you can get Disgaea 5 complete. There's a good number of indie and Neo Geo games you can also purchase for the system as well.


    Also in regards to Splatoon there's a demo for that game you can play on the 15th so if you're interested in the title dl it from the eshop so you can try it out.

    Thanks for the hefty response.
    Yeah Zelda and MK8D are the obvious ones, (will probably skip MK8D though) and I'll probably get Puyo Puyo Tetris as a good short burst game, also downloading Fast RMX because that's my kind of shit.
    I'll probably be picking up Splatoon 2 when that comes out soon along with the Mario/Rabbids XCOM game (if it turns out to be as suprisingly good as it looks).
    Skipping USF2, it seems kind of like a lazy cash grab to be honest, especially at that price point. I like strategy RPGS well enough but there's just something about Disgaea that turns me off trying it, it just doesn't appeal to me at all.
    Gonna look through the indie selection, I probably already own most of the Neo Geo titles on pc but maybe I'll double dip if they're good/better ports.

    Nabbed a Switch yesterday off Amazon Prime day/week sale. Starting Christmas shopping early for family this year. I've read about some people opening theirs and finding that the unit itself isn't there. Opened it up and....everything was there. Nintendo isn't putting a "security" sticker on the boxes so that made it easy.

    Granted its not for me but I will be picking one up for myself this year....maybe? Size of the buttons really threw me off, like almost hype-level killer stuff. Talk about a curveball. Are the buttons the same size on the Pro controller?

    If it's anything like the Wii-U's pro controller the buttons on the Switch's pro controller should be regular sized.

    Ok I have that game Implosion now...yep, good stuff here. You're in a "Warframe"-looking mech and slice/shoot your way through isometric areas like a sci-fi Diablo....but also with a combo counter...oohhh yes this is delicious. I'm barely paying attention to the story; I'm just here for the slash-slash-combo-shootemup action. There's some leveling up too, and special abilities.
