@kkslider5552000 Yeah, I think it’s silly to maintain the “this is better” console war mentality this day and age. Gamers have so many more affordable options to get their entertainment, it really shouldn’t matter.

I like video games because I enjoy them. That’s where my watermark is 😎

I remember being 12 and my cousin was being a jerk about Gamecube and how much better Xbox was and I did get mad at him. Now, I liked the original Xbox, I liked the games I played on it (even Fuzion Frenzy). I wasn't mad at Xbox, I was mad at him bashing Gamecube which was a good console with good games. But at the time, it was still being unnecessarily mad because he was making fun of a console I had and was a big fan of. And there were stupid things I said trying to defend it on internet forums etc.

And yeah, all of that needs to be said, because I was 12 years old, and 12 years old is roughly where this needs to stay at. I'm literally too old for this. I don't care if you liked the Sega 32X more than Super Nintendo, just don't reject reality to try to prove a point to internet people who have no real effect on your life.

This. Whether playing, talking, reading or writing about them. There are so many great games & experiences we could all be talking about yet this thread constantly gets sidetracked & dragged into a negative drudge about sales, doom & gloom.

I’d much rather read that Jack just caught his first Caterpie or Vanessa just beat the snot out of a direwolf, but again and again the ‘good stuff’ gets pushed aside for this cyclical tedium. Not pointing fingers, naming names or assigning blame to anyone, but the whole reason I - and i suspect others - signed up is to discuss games, not numbers that matter to the people paid to worry about them. I get that it can be an interesting read, but when it descends into a regular ‘she said/he said’ it’s just pointless.

It’s thanksgiving for a large part of the audience; let’s focus on being thankful that we have so many amazing games to play and systems to pick from!

Got a little extra moolah laying around. May pick up a fighting game before Smash eats my life.

@Knuckles-Fajita can you buy Code of Princess then and tell me if it’s worth the cash-money?

I’ve been watching it avoid sale after sale for the longest time and I never quite ‘run out of games’ enough to justify a full price purchase!

Will quickly add; never really been much of a smash fan but the direct got me fully on board. Never really been one for Polygon either, but their recent article about the single player content has me almost drooling at the prospect!

I ended up buying Pokken Tournament DX. That's game 57.

I enjoyed it on Wii U, but when am I gonna turn that on?

@HobbitGamer Honestly Microsoft's purchase of lots of studios recently ready for next gen kind of promotes the return of console wars. It definitely feels like 360 era Microsoft is back.

@JaxonH LA Noire is also $10 at US GameStops

@Grumblevolcano I’m okay with that, since we’re past the sepia-tone graphics age 😂

@Knuckles-Fajita When we had a game night a few days ago, bestie and I were doing some coop in PLG when the other bestest says “I know Charizard. He’s in that fighting game. See, I pay attention!”
We turn to look at her and I go “Yeah, TT used him last week in Smash 4”
Her reply had us all rolling; “Oh...I meant that Pokémon tournament game”

@HobbitGamer
I saw that, unfortunately it's in store only. But to anyone going in store it's a heck of a deal.

@JaxonH Ohhh! Didn’t realize that. My friend was gonna grab it if she saw it, cause I’d been holding out.

@HobbitGamer
It's probably not a problem for most. I'm just lazy (well, not really- I work hard but when I'm not working I prefer spending as little time driving around to stores as possible, especially in the age of online shopping).

If nothing else, you can always score for $19.99. Not the worst price one could pay.

@JaxonH Nah, I’m the same. Especially since I live in a semi-rural area. I even considered changing my office’s hours for Dec 6 so I don’t have to drive out of and back in to town for Smash at midnight, lol

Has anyone given ‘Oddball King’ and/or ‘60 Seconds!’ a go? They’re quite cheap and piqued my interest.

@JaxonH That DB FighterZ price is a great deal. I grabbed Crash for $25 and a second Smash Ultimate GameCube controller for $24 on my break tonight.

On a side note, best deal for Rabbids is on the eShop. $32 for the Gold Edition that comes with the season pass.

The PowerA GCN-styled wireless controller feels great. Feels brilliant to be using with Mario Kart, and despite needing a bit of time to get used to the placement it also works wonders with Splatoon. The motion control in it being just as good as the official Pro controller helps with that as well.

Unfortunate it needs batteries, but that shouldn't really be a problem, and they give it a bit more weight.

@DarkRula Batteries means no internal battery that runs dry at some point. So I'd consider it a good thing!

Any good deals on physical games in the Netherlands? Haven't really found any spectacular. I'm mainly in the market for Civ 6 (probably to early for a good sale though ) and perhaps Doom or Wolf at the right price. I still want Starlink digital because I don't want to worry about the toys.

DarkRula

@Octane I suppose it is a good thing. I think I'm just used to the ability to charge the Pro through a laptop while still using it on the Switch itself.
