Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Some details on Pokemon Home https://home.pokemon.com/en-us/?cid=&utm_source=tw&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=pokemonhome&utm_term=january28 Not really surprising, but they continue to charge for things that should have been free in the base game. You can kind of use the trade features for free, bu...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I'm not sure time to 100% complete for a Pokemon game is a particularly useful metric, since I assume that includes catching every Pokemon, which while fun, is well beyond the scope of what I'd consider normal post-game. That said, according to that link, Sword and Shield have the shortest completio...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Did anyone else get the impression that even the people making the video thought Byleth was a lame choice?

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Black, White, Black 2 and White 2 were all individually complete games, you did not have to buy both to get a compete experience.

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

PMD is fine, not my favorite, but I might pick it up at some point, though it's a bit weird that they're remastering an old game with none of the Pokemon from the new games they should be trying to promote, rather than making a new one. I'm glad they're addressing the lack of content in Sw/Sh, but I...

Re: 2019 in Gaming and your Game of the Year

It was a bit of a weird year for me, some highlights: Kingdom Hearts 3 - PS4 It’s hard to fairly evaluate a game that was so anticipated for so long, and Kingdom Hearts 3 wasn’t a bad game by any stretch, but after waiting for it for so many years, I was hoping for so much better. The gameplay was p...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Kirby is fantastic, and I'm always happy to see more JRPGs, but on the long list of classic SNES RPGs, Breath of Fire 1 and 2 aren't exactly near the top...

That Rouge Legacy track drove me crazy for a solid 10 minutes before I figured it out.

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I had a similar experience with LM2, I tried again to get through it leading up to the release of 3, but going through the same rooms over and over got old quickly. I've really enjoyed what I've played of 3 so far though. Also, I find that aiming is much easier with the motion controls than with the...

Re: Games Completed 2019

9/29 - Dragon Quest (Switch) I've played through it once before with help, so I was interested to see if, between my memory and the in-game signposting, I could get through it unaided (preferably without spending hours wandering around lost), since NES RPGs are notoriously bad at that. I suspect a ...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Anyone played much NNK:Wrath Of The White Witch? I like JPGs, love the style, and love that I'd be able to play it handheld. Seems a dead cert, the port has got great reviews too. I bounced off the original after ~15 hours. I don't remember it being terribly grindy, but I didn't really enjoy the co...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Anyone tried Super Kirby Clash? I don't think it's something I'll play for a long time, but I had an enjoyable hour or so on it earlier. It'll be interesting to play a little more and see if there's any more to it that initially meets the eye. It's fun enough, though. I also played it for maybe an ...

Reviews for Astral Chain are breaking, and they look quite promising, I may have to pick up a copy for the long weekend, if I can make myself put down Fire Emblem :).

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

They've sold an awful lot of annual subscriptions to be raising the price or adding a new tier at this point. I suspect they'll just start adding 1 -2 per month alongside NES games, and use controller sales to monetize them.

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I’m sure these will be released and people will instantly demand N64 games for the service also. I mean, unless they make literally the entire Nintendo library available, there will obviously always be more to want, but a decent selection of SNES games would probably satisfy most people for the mom...

Re: Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Nice, thanks for sharing! :) I'm not a fan of S supports or of the general idea of turning the entire support mechanic into a dating sim, to be honest. Supports in the 3DS games tend to be either romantic or goofy with very few exceptions. I clearly prefer it the way it works in the GBA games: Keep...

Re: Fire Emblem: Three Houses

I'm happy to see the positive reception this game is getting, on here and elsewhere. It's just a bit difficult for me to know how much of that would translate to my personal experience and expectations of the series, since most of the enthusiasm seems to come from either series newcomers or Awakeni...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I recently played through the first two Dragon Quest games on the NES, and I was pleasantly surprised by how well they've aged. Especially with DQ 1, being essentially the first JRPG ever, I was afraid I would spend most of my time frustrated and dying over and over, but apart from the total lack of...

Re: Sound of Play: 204

The piece playing over your intro was from Yoshi's Woolly World, and I'm pretty sure there was another track from it in the mix. Also Ori and the Blind Forest (For real this time), the Mario track was most likely Mario Maker, and was that Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger, and The Terribly Cursed Emerald: A ...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I'm a bit disappointed that they didn't really announce anything new that we didn't already know about, other than BotW 2, which I agree is the least surprising announcement ever, and who knows when we'll actually see it. I can't help but feel like the delay of Animal Crossing (and possibly Metroid ...
