@Anti-Matter It was heavy indeed. It was the VCR of video games 😂 it looked like a giant brick next to a GameCube. But man, that machine was awesome.

I own every major console from that generation except Xbox. I do have some interest in buying one, but it's not high priority for me right now.

I've been playing mostly Mario Party and Dreamcast, I got a Dreampi last week to get the thing online and have been addicted to Phantasy Star Online and Worms.

Still waiting for Atlus to make Snowboard Kids 3

Ooooh this Vestaria Saga game looks good. I will keep an eye out lol.

Also multiconsole and PC gamer here. Never understood the console wars thing. It is consumers being anti consumer.... to themselves. So silly to watch. Play what and where makes you happy.

Platinum is saying they will have multiple announcements next year. For the love of Urbosa please let one of them be related to w101.

@Ryu_Niiyama
Yes it does! Let me know your impressions.

I got it running on the Win 2, unfortunately when I switched to controller mode it didn’t map properly. I had to use Steam’s controller configuration settings to manually map confirm and back to A and B, and the directions to analog and Dpad. Once I got everything mapped though it started working perfectly. If anyone else has issues I’d be happy to upload my steam controller configuration for this game so that others can use it, although they could probably edit one themselves in a few minutes. Plus, it worked fine on my desktop so...

As for “anti consumer to themselves”, that’s a great point. Unfortunately I think most people are willfully ignorant to what they’re missing out on. They refuse to acknowledge they are missing out. Me... I own everything and I fully acknowledge there are tons of great games on other platforms. I wish they would all come to Switch, because I really enjoy playing games on Switch more. But if a game isn’t on Switch, that’s no fault of the game in question. The game can’t help what platform it was created for. I do wish I could play every game on switch and never touch another console again, but that’s not going to happen.

At the end of the day, it’s not the end of the world if a game isn’t hybrid. Worst case scenario, it gets played on the TV... and I love playing games on the TV. I just like having the freedom to take them elsewhere if possible. But ya, worst case scenario of a game not being on Switch... you press the power button on a different controller. Oh the horror

I've owned pretty much everything other than the Xbox One (no reason to own one) and Sega Saturn (never even seen one in person). I think I'm largely done owning multiple modern gen consoles, though. There's just not enough time for me to keep up with all the releases I'm interested in across the various platforms. From now on, it's just PC, Nintendo, and my older consoles.

@JaxonH But just think, if they put Pikmin on mobile they can sell Pikmin at a penny a pop, 300 red, blue and yellow Pikmin, that's $3.00. Nah, I don't see it either. Though, if they could make it like a Clash of Clans type game it could work I suppose. No throwing of the Pikmin, just rushing groups at a time. You ever play Mushroom Wars back on PS3? It's one of the best, if not the best, real time strategy games I've ever played. They could almost just throw a skin on it. Rather than attacking just cities you'd take boss monsters. The first game was even on mobile. I didn't like the controls as much as on PS3, it was perfect on there, but I played it. Sill waiting for a sale on MW2 on Switch. It wouldn't be Pikmin at that point, but it could work. Man, now I want it. I'd pass on a port of 3, I've played that enough, but why not?

Playing Xenoblade 2 Torna right now. Is expansion is fantastic. It’s basically a fourth Xenoblade game. I’ve put at least 20 hours into it and I’m not even halfway done yet. I actually think I like it better than the main game.

Tales of Vesperia drops Jan 11th. One of the best RPG‘s according to the Geno RPG Recommemdation list (you know my brother likes his RPGs). I bought the game years ago for 360 expecting BC but it never came. No reason to buy on any system besides Switch, too. Since it’s 1080p across all platforms and 60fps in battles. Basically a choice of getting less for your money... or more. I love games like that. Exact same version, same resolution, same price, same release day, 60fps where it matters... 3 versions instead of 1. That’s where the system shines. I do recommend you check this one out.

Also, Fire Emblem Three Houses approacheth. I’ve been on your butt about playing the series since 2013, when Awakening released. It’s time for you to repent, and right that wrong. I really do think you’ll like this series though, especially since they are catering towards easier difficulty options now and becoming more newcomer friendly.

And we have a healthy dose of Square Enix RPGs coming to Switch. You probably already played DQXI, but I held off because I wanted to experience the game proper, playing in my recliner in handheld mode like I used to back on 3DS, and I want to set it up in tabletop mode and play at work in my office (btw, I never told you but they finally promoted me to head of metrology and calibration across our 3 plants- got a nice spacious office tucked away in the back of the lab now, and a raise that might put me in reach of 6 figures next year... suffice it to say I decided not to take that other job offer). So I have that to look forward to, but we also have Final Fantasy X and XII, and DQ Builders 2. I already played FFX on Vita. Back when I hated turned based, and my bro got me into RPGs with Fire Emblem, The very next game I played was FFX. And I loved the crap out of that game. I’m totally going to play it again when it comes to Switch. And I never did play Final Fantasy XII. I bought it but just never played it because... it was on PS4. I tend to play games more when they are on a portable system (Like FFX on Vita). This is one of the reasons I never finished Persona 5. DQ Builders 2 looks fire though. Man that game looks good.

That aside, you all in for Luigi’s Mansion 3 next year? Animal Crossing? Believe it or not I actually got into AC on 3DS. It’s not something I want to play all the time but, it’s very relaxing. What about Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3? Bayonetta 3, I know you’re all in on that. I don’t even need to ask. What about Yoshi’s Crafted World? I know you like your chill platformers. Speaking of which I’ll be replaying New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe. It’s been over 6 years since I played it. That’s long enough to feel new again, and I really want a 2D Mario on Switch. I always said that was one of the better platformers I had ever played. Really good game. What about Pokémon? I figure that’s a definite for you also. Especially a main series Pokémon (although personally, I am not convinced I’m going to like the main series more than Let’s Go).

What about Daemon X Machina? You all in on that? I know how much you loved Xenoblade X, and this game looks remarkably similar. Different but, very reminiscent.

I’m ready for a Nintendo Direct.

I made a New Year's Resolution to NOT buy as much games unless I have a legitimate interest in the game. Meaning, I'll probably only get Tales of Vesperia, Daemon X Machina, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and Devil May Cry 5.

I'll instead be playing my backlog. I STILL need to finish Nioh and start Dark Souls II and III... and finish Nier: Automata... and Final Fantasy XV... and... oh... why am I going for a second playthrough of Bloodborne right now???

@EvilLucario
Have you heard about Devil May Cry 5’s microtransactions? The new moves that you unlock, like in Bayonetta 2, are for sale. Believe someone did the math and it would take $4000 to $5000 to buy the complete game. Now they say this is completely optional but, you have to know they balanced the game around nudging you towards buying them.

I canceled my pre-order and dusted the dirt off my feet when I heard that. They can keep their game. I’ll wait for Bayonetta 3. I’m done supporting those kinds of practices. Capcom started it with the MTX in MH World, selling Guildmarm outfit for $4 (which was free in MHGen Ult on Switch), making transmog a MTX and preorder bonus. Then they hosted stupid seasonal events making it like a “live service”, locking DLC content to being online and temporary (whereas DLC was free and permanent offline in MHGen Ult)... The only reason I didn’t make a bigger fuss over that game was because I love the series SOOOO much. But it set a horrible precedent for a series traditionally known for free DLC. I didn’t really take issue with them selling face paint and gestures (although those were all free in previous games also). If they wanted to stick with just that I’d probably be OK with it.

Then there’s Street Fighter V with in-game advertisements plastered all over the stages, tattooed ads on the characters (buy buy US flag on Guile, it now says Capcom World Cup!)... it’s a disaster. And you can turn them off, but it disables your ability to earn in game fight cash.

All this to say Capcom is crossing over into EA territory very rapidly. They’ve become emboldened by their “AAA success”. They want to copy the EA model and make it their own. And I’m not goin for it. At ALL. As far as I’m concerned, if they want to continue this nonsense I’m perfectly content playing other games.

@JaxonH I've seen it, which is why it's not a priority even though I have some interest. If normal gameplay sucks ass with unlocking moves then I'm not going to get it, but if it's natural like old DMC or Bayonetta then I'll still probably get it.

The unlock prices for stuff in the Bayonetta games are extreme anyway. The DMC5 situation sounds about as obnoxious as unlocking stuff like Platinum Ticket (I see Smash Ultimate spoils that reward) but with the option to buy with real money.

@Anti-Matter I haven't played it yet (waiting for the English version) but apparently the game was somewhat buggy at launch, with a patch released a week later that fixed most of it.

I don't know about the frame rate though.

Still waiting for Atlus to make Snowboard Kids 3

JaxonH

I need to hurry up and finish Xenoblade Torna before Tales of Vesperia drops. Got basically a week and a half. On it.

@Grumblevolcano
The minute they start selling move unlocks piecemeal, you can no longer trust the game’s balance hasn’t been affected. Not to mention, who wants to play a game where the temptation to buy that next cool move you want is always looming...

@JaxonH Congrats on the promotion and the office. Not too many offices in employment any more, everybody is going "open" like video games. Coincidentally my wife has a promotion, in writing, for May 1st which will put her just a raise short of 6 figures also. Which is almost enough for me not to get a job. But I probably will anyway. After my kid goes off to college, he's currently looking at Princeton, Yale and Carnegie Mellon, he's a tad short for MIT. The less money we make the better his financial aid.

As for Switch games, Yoshi and Bayonetta 2 pre-ordered on Amazon. Yoshi w/ the Prime discount, B3 had a pre-order discount sale recently. My son got XC2 for Christmas but we haven't started yet b/c we're trying to watch 67 episodes of GoT before April. Really wish HBO would give us a date, there's a huge two season difference between April 7th and April 28th. Fingers crossed for the 28th. I don't think they'll start on Easter, maybe Palm Sunday but I'm pretty sure either the 7th or 28th. But we'll start XC2 after the 67. I told him he can play, I'll watch, we've done the other way around enough. Then we'll get Dorna. I was playing Pokemon Let's Go Eevee but after 2 hours my hand and wrist hurt too much. I'm hoping they'll fix it, yes fix it, to let the handheld controls work in docked mode. Throwing the ball is fine, fun even, but I can't hit buttons and control the thumbstick w/ the same thumb, it's torture. I NEED two Joycon to play. Also still trying to level up to fight the final final boss in DQXI. He's serious but I think I'm almost there. And I opened SSBU and made a save file but I think that's it. Been watching my kids play World of Light, seems like a long story. And SM Party. Two hours to play one 15 turn game. Hard to play that too often but I want to do the river co-op mode. Maybe tomorrow and next weekend. We also saw Aquaman on Friday, was pleasantly surprised, it was really good. By far the best DC movie, as good as the Marvel movies. Discussing Spiderverse but haven't figured out when yet. Next year is filled with movies for us, Dragonball, Captain Marvel, X-Men, Godzilla, Avengers. My kids play a lot of videogames, but they do have other interests as well. Future games - Marvel UA3 is a must. Probably day 1 or close depending on the day. We'll see what AC is, not into amiibo Festival 2. And I'm trying to get into the backlog, Witcher 3 and Tomb Raider 2 (forgot what it's called but I bought the steelbook). So Fire Emblem is probably never going to happen. Same for Tales of Vesperia, though I'll look into it. I'd like to say Luigi's Mansion 3 is Day 1 but if it's a soccer game I'll pass. I figure they have to screw 1 up on Switch eventually. Have you ever played the arcade Lugi's Mansion? It's a Ghostbusters like FPS. I watched my kids play for 25 straight minutes at Dave & Busters. I'd take a port of that w/ gyro controls. Probably not getting that Machina X game, world looked too empty. I'm pretty much using my limited game time for MUST PLAY games. God of War 2 hopefully PS5 launch, and Spiderman on PS5 as well. RDR2 doesn't interest me, I'd rather watch Eastwood spaghetti westerns for the 1,000 time. Hopefully they don't shift TLoU2 to PS5 and it's a nice PS4 swan song in 2019. That's Day 1 unless it goes all online multiplayer of FPS or something stupid. Can't be too careful these days.

Gotta go shower and dress for a NYE party tonight. Happy New Year whatever it is you're doing, though my guess is on gaming.

@JaxonH Well to Capcom's defense the in game ads were a limited time thing (to promote the tourney) and are gone for now. They built this game for the tourney scene, makes it annoying but that was their goal. Didn't know about DMC5 though. Welp I guess I wont get that then. Bayo3 it is then. (I didn't enjoy DMC4 anyway so I don't think I'm missing out.)

If my boys and girls at platinum keep the trend up Bayo 3 is gonna blow anything else out of the water anyway. 2 is still by far my favorite character action game ever and if they improve upon that yet again 3 will probably mean I'll die of pure bliss 😂

I was really looking forward to Dmc5 but like @JaxonH 's my excitement got brutalized by those stupid f****ng micro transactions 🙄

What a beautiful signature.
