Everyone is saying it looks like Borderlands 2, which if it is would leave me questioning why not bring the first as well. Makes little sense to only port the second but not the first game. Unless that will end up being part of the announcement.

@FragRed The Handsome Collection is just Borderlands 2 and the Pre-Sequel. Could be that.

@EvilLucario Still feels odd to not port the first game as well, shouldn't be too difficult being it's a last generation game. I assume it's not important to have never played the first game if they aren't going to port it over as well?

@FragRed Well for context, the first game isn't on PS4 and it's only on XB1 via backwards compatibility. So the only way you'd see a Switch version of the first game is if like Dark Souls, it's remastered on PS4/XB1 and then come to Switch months later.

I wonder if there'll be a new Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 trailer in the ads before Avengers Endgame.

@FragRed No, not at all. The first game's story is pretty basic... pre-DLC at least, and it's covered as background lore in 2. Borderlands 1 honestly wasn't that good of a story until the DLC (especially Claptrap's Robot Revolution), which was way better than the base game IMO. It's kind of like the jump from Diablo to Diablo 2/3 in a lot of ways.

Borderlands 2 would be an amazing release and at the same time terrifying.

My Switch backlog is already unreasonably deep..

Switch Physical Collection - 285 games (as of March 19th, 2019)
Currently playing: Steins;Gate Elite (Switch) The Caligula Effect: Overdose (Switch)

I wonder how I missed Umihara Kawase Fresh being announced for the Switch...

I'm playing the 3DS one right now, and the game is killing my hands. Totally playing Fresh with my 8bitdo SNES pad.

@GrailUK Noticed you had played both Hamster’s and SNK Collection versions of IKARI WARRIORS. Any differences to note?

@Lroy No. They both play the same. The ACA version even has the twin stick approach the SNK collection has.

I’d be grateful if anyone who’s purchased a Switch console recently – one of the Pokémon: Let’s Go! or Super Smash Bros. Ultimate editions, maybe? – might be able to help, please?

I purchased my Switch console in September 2017, but it’s looking like I might soon have to purchase a replacement. I was concerned, however, to stumble across this forum post, saying that newer Switch consoles seem to have poorer-quality screens with worse contrast, viewing angles etc.

I wondered if anyone who purchased a Switch at launch but has more recently bought a second console might have compared the two and noticed any difference? Do I need to be concerned?

(That said, I suppose it’s possible that my current Switch has one of the ‘worse quality’ screens since it was bought a few months after launch.)

I haven't heard anything about Switch changing quality of screens.

If it's just something you "heard about" and want a replacement, I wouldn't bother. If you used it for months without issue and only "discovered" an issue when you heard about that, it seems it was never really an issue.

I honestly haven't heard any complaints about the screen. When 3DS changed screens it was a drastic difference and everyone was talking about it. Nobody's been talking about Switch screens, which I can only assume to mean there has been no change, or it was negligible.

I bought my Switch 13 months ago, my friend bought hers 1 month ago. There is no visual difference at all.

Also, that post is from 12 months ago. And somehow whatever retailer that poster used allowed them to purchase and then return 3 identical SKUs, with no complaint other than "my screen is poop"? Nope, I'm callin' that one.

Gotta admit, it’s an easier pill by giving cafeteria-style sku choices. Hopefully that red sticker on the “expansion” sets is telling folks they need the base kit 😂

Pull the plug on nba2k19 on sale for 20. Wow nba2k games are not so good now. The gameplay is not fun and way to complicated. Miss the old 2k basketball games.

@Magician Thanks for answering me. I'm just glad there's people like you who I can live the dream vicariously through
