If you want the quickest way to lose some braincells, you go to YouTube comments. Lots of blind praising or blind hate everywhere.

Metroid, Xenoblade, EarthBound shill

I run a YouTube/Twitch channel for fun. Check me out if you want to!

Please let me know before you send me a FC request, thanks.

I never understand why people say there are no games on Switch. I engaged in a Youtube comment to this effect (my mistake) and he said games didn't count if they were ports, indies, or scored below 85 on Metacritic. OK then, I guess PS4 doesn't have that many games either and Switch has more than Xbox (I'm guessing)! Duuurrrrrrrrrr.

The Switch really does not have many games that will appeal to the majority of gamers. Majority of AAA titles are released on the other 2 systems and Nintendo is lucky if a major 3rd party publisher releases a major title on a Nintendo system. So far, AAA titles outside Nintendo have been ports.

@darkfenrir Oh yes, Dead Cells and Wizard of Legend both look great. And the fact that a physical edition of Dead Cells was announced today only solidifies my interest in it!

The rogue like I've been playing most recently is Crypt of the Necrodancer. As a musician and former percussionist this game is basically a dream come true for me! It's addictive, the music is great, it's challenging but rewarding, the music is great, the visual style is charming, the music is great, the progression is constant and gratifying, and did I mention that the MUSIC IS GREAT!?

Mario Galaxy is ten years old, and now I feel old.

@ilikeike Yep! I'm just glad that they finally say WHEN in 2018 personally XD

And glad you enjoy Crypt! I hear good stuff about it but I never really goes into it because... I suck at rhythm. I didn't even manage to play games like Rhythm Heaven past the first stage. Or manages to keep the fever in Patapon 3...

I'm excited for whenever Moonlighter will come around to Switch too, that indie just looks so DAMN GOOD.

Same here. Every time their post appeared on my fb feed, I was hoping to see the Switch release date announcement, lol!
Beside Moonlighter, I am also looking forward to Smoke And Sacrifice, Re:Legend, My time at Portia, Little Dragons Cafe.
(Possible next year release) Raji an Ancient epic.

Last year, not much games on Switch I was interested, but this year look promising.

My Brain, eyes, and fingers are not team player. They don't coordinate with each other.

@UnknownReader Same! I'm in the discord server and I'm just itching to want to get Moonlighter release date! XD (And some double dippers there too, I'll be so jelly whenever they get their game!)

(And I'm also interested in Re: Legend in your list, that one looks amazing!)

Same here, I'm already happy with Xenoblade 2 personally, but this year is 4 JRPG, around 3 indies... I'll be so happy with my purchase at the end of this year. Should only be getting better lol

I honestly don't get some people's purchasing habits. I'd count myself lucky if I can buy even like 5 retail games per year. Then again, I am but only a poor college boy...

@EvilLucario Please, I usually don't buy a lot too, but I always buy games I'm interested in (and there's... not much personally. I don't know why this year has been full of games I want!)

For my indies buying though, I usually go by that thanks to gift cards and what not since some of my friends helped T_T Otherwise I think I'll think even harder if I want to get them or not.

@darkfenrir So jealous that PS4, PC, Xbox getting it by the end of May. I am just going to drool watching gameplay on YT till switch release, lol!

Me too, I only buy what I am interested in. Mainly rpg / Jrpg, but lately I am into action, adventure. Not too into first person cos I get nauseous. Not into side scroll or Visual Novel as well. So I save quite a bit.

My Brain, eyes, and fingers are not team player. They don't coordinate with each other.

darkfenrir

@UnknownReader I am too! Will watch my usual Let's Play guy play it I guess. It'll be fun (And I'll be able to know what I should do at the beginning... maybe... hopefully...)

And yeah, I'm into the same thing, RPG, JRPG, Action, Adventure, pretty much nearly a lot of story-based things (Don't even mind VNs). Although recently starting to get into rogue-lites though, seems awesome.

(and whoah, same! Playing first person makes me want to puke haha... feels bad that's happening, but arceusdamn, it makes me wanting to try some games not fun)

You guys are aware of 3rd party chargers bricking the system, right?

Any proof hori has bricked any system?

And the problem isn't with chargers, it is the usb-a to usb-c cables. And most of those work as well, especially from branded makers.

@darkfenrir I only like 3 VN so far. Brother Conflict Precious Baby (vita) , Storm Lovers (vita), Mystic Messenger (Android).
Those rely on just reading and 2 choice sentence pick, I get bored easily, lol! I don't understand the fun in those. I rather read manga, lol!

@UnknownReader haha, I just love them... just because I guess? XD

I mean Fault Milestone series (I got into them on Steam) is amaziiing, and if they can make it into manga or anime, I think that will fit far better with the series haha.

What about some VNs like Danganronpa though? Those are crazy good I hear (and not sure if I want to get in- I suuuuck at mystery solving)

The Hori stand doesn't have a pass through iirc, it just allows access to the port on the system itself that's otherwise blocked off.

@darkfenrir I tired Danganronpa 2, wasn't into it. Well, I wasn't into that anime as well. I know it's popular, just don't capture my attention.

Mystery solving I like Corpse Party and Yomawari. Root Letter is quite ok too.

I mean, true, but as I said in another thread, that's a grand total of maybe a dozen or so games so far this year?

I mean, ignoring Sony and Microsoft owned games, there's Monster Hunter World. There's already a Switch Monster Hunter game that Capcom could localize if they wanted to. There's Dragon Ball FighterZ, which Namco Bandai have hinted at releasing IIRC. That new Dissidia FF game that...did not review that well. Yakuza 6, is a next gen game with no real equivalent coming AFAIK. That is true. Ni no Kuni 2 we're not getting but Level 5 is gonna be supporting Switch quite a bit, which makes sense as they were a big part of DS and especially 3DS (with like exclusives and whatever). A Way Out is unlikely, but we did just get EA's other indie game, Fe. Far Cry 5 we are not getting. But that being said, I think people would be cool if they just put out 3 or 4 or even Blood Dragon on Switch, everything I saw and read suggested 5 is not dramatically different from past games. But I guess it counts as much as any well liked, samey sequel, so I'd also count that regardless.

And of course, Fortnite is the most popular game in the world right now and could very easily run on Switch. My point being though, AAA games are not offering many games this year where the same people who made it wouldn't be able to or aren't going to provide somewhat of an equivalent experience on Switch. And for that matter, are a tiny fraction of gaming as certain companies make less and less games so that they can make people spend more for certain massive games. I do agree that certain AAA games are massively successful and it would help if they were on Switch, but there are so many popular games beyond them and there are clearly so many games that will succeed on Switch. And if you aren't a fan of the same couple of genres, the games too powerful to be ported to Switch or whatever are not something you're probably gonna like anyway.

You are aware both of these being discussed are just stands and in no way provide power to the Switch, right?

The real beauty of the “NESflix” model is that it makes it viable to pop in and out of games with marginal value. Like I’d struggle to justify paying anything for Dr Mario on Switch but if it’s included in a broader subscription that I’m getting for other purposes then I might play it.

This is my take away from it. I see it as a good thing, especially with NES games. So many of them are just not worth buying, but fun enough to jump in and out of when available in a broader subscription.

I think - to speculate a little - that the switch to this model also confirms what some of us have been saying for a while: VC was never as profitable as some people “in the bubble” assume it was.

Yes, everyone wants SMB, SMB3, SMW, Super Metroid and A Link to The Past and is willing to pay for them again and again but maybe the sales for good second tier titles were not good and third tier titles sales were completely non-existent. I think that’s part of why the Wii U selection was much smaller (but still had just about very game most people would actually ever be willing to pay for).

Bundling may be the only way to keep some of those good but not mega popular games in circulation. Even the drip feed release of new titles could turn out to be a stroke of genius for smaller (or shorter arcade style) titles when no one has to actually fork over money specifically for that game.

On an unrelated note - the odds of Wind Waker HD this year or next just went up dramatically...

@oninowon
AAA games are not really important in my opinion.
Even some lower classes games (Indies , A, AA level games) are better than typical AAA games.

My Top 6 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (100)
2. Dragon Quest Builders 2 PS4/Switch (95)
3. The Sims 4 PS4 + All contents (93)
4. Portal Knights PS4 (90)
5. Final Fantasy VIII PS1 (90)
6. Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome Amiibo 3DS (89)
