@Magician At least they add new games, and not stuff we can already buy on Virtual Console for Wii, Wii U or 3DS.

@Grumblevolcano I think you missed a few Nintendo published SNES games. Mario Paint, Wario's Woods, Mario & Wario, Kirby's Ghost Trap, Yoshi's Safari, Tetris & Dr. Mario, Super Scope 6, Tetris Attack, Battle Clash, and I guess Killer Instinct won't count anymore. I'm pretty sure it was also Nintendo publishing Harvest Moon and all of Square Enix big box games in Europe (Secret of Mana, Secret of Evermore, Illusion of Time, Terranigma, etc.) but those franchises are now self-published or with someone else. Anyway, there's also room for some Satellaview Games. I always wanted to play the weird Zelda's, F-Zero specials and Mario Excitebike games.

@SKTTR I was looking at SNES games on VC and added All-Stars because it was re-released physically on Wii. While not the perfect comparison, looking at VC and removing all games from current gen collections meanwhile adding a load of really obscure 3rd party games seems like reasonable expectations for NSO judging from NES and SNES so far.

@Grumblevolcano It becomes difficult to predict what 3rd party publishers are willing to give NSO. Capcom did allow Demon’s Crest and Breath of Fire and Konami with The Twin Bee games and Gradius. Street Fighter, Mega Man, Castlevania, Contra, etc... were all included on collections already.

Konami also sounds like they want to do something with Mystical Ninja, so you can probably count that one out. Bomberman as well.

So far Square seems more content with releasing their RPGs absent of any service, so probably not going to see any FF, Dragon Quest, Chrono Trigger...

Axelay and Metal Warriors I can see coming to the SNES app, but a lot of the major franchises are either being guarded by publishers or tied up in expired licenses.

I think Nintendo should be forking out more money to these publishers to convince them though.

Has anyone joycons broken off there switch, when playing ?

Nope, that's not supposed to happen. What do you "broken"? If they just slid vertically off then you probably accidentally held in the release button on the back. If they came off in any other way, it's bad news.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

Anybody looking for a fun couch multiplayer game should get Runbow. It is a steal at $3.

Tech analysis for Metro is in. Almost always locked 30fps with no pacing issues, minor hutches at very rare points in cutscenes.

720p both docked and handheld. Anti aliasing in full effect. Full surround sound audio, no compression.

Visuals features on par with PS4 save for a few changes textures in select shots.

Longer loading, except after dying, and playing portably has issues due to how dark the game is, apparently.

Started playing Daemon X Machina recently. I'm currently tackling D-Rank missions (most recently one where I had to destroy a couple of walls/barriers in a valley).

Before I get too far in I figured I'd ask if anyone has any suggestions in terms of what parts & weapons I should aim for? Despite a few upgrades I've mostly stuck with what I've started with (though I dropped the sheild for a second gun) as most things seem to offer a different focus in terms of stats, rather than an all around improvement.

Currently Playing:
Switch - Blade Strangers
PS4 - Kingdom Hearts III, Tetris Effect (VR)

@Knuckles-Fajita so now we're getting 720p games with 30fps and people are debating if we need a pro?!

It used to be we would get 720p games with 60fps or 1080p games with 30fps. Now were getting the lower numbers on both ends.

Ignoring that most BIG games last gen on the power consoles ran at 720p 30fps, most third party games on Wii U ran at 720p 30fps with the exception of Monster Hunter at 1080p, and I think, either Tekken Tag Team or Injustice 720p 60fps. And some first party games were at 720p/30 fps, like Hyrule Warriors, Pikmin 3, and Xenoblade Chronicles X.

And I don't think I need to comment that it is not a new thing on Switch either.

@Toy_Link so what you are saying is that I should be content that my 2017 tech is doing the same thing as my 2005 tech?! That makes sense.

I thought the Wii U (2012) was supposed to be better than my xbox (2005). And the switch was supposed to be more powerful than the Wii u. But in the end what matters is 720p 30fps acceptable for a hybrid in 2020 for many people.

@RR529 Stick with the basic weapons and equipment till C Rank. Then if you dip into multiplayer arsenal fights, you can drag any loot into your single player.

@HobbitGamer, I don't have NSO so won't be doing any multiplayer. Will that be a problem for later on in single player?

@RR529 Nah, not really.

Do you think we should be paying for online Nintendo multiplayer?

Destiny, justice and retribrution will be mine.

Darksiders Genesis
Amazing game, amazing Switch port. It looks great in handheld mode and it runs smoothly... this is definitely more Darksiders Warmastered than Darksiders II. It features single player, local co-op on the same system, local wireless with two different systems without needing Wi-Fi, and of course online. And the game is fun as heck.

Highly recommended, especially on Switch where co-op is so prevalent.

Fire Emblem Three Houses expansion
Fun. It’s more of a great game, so if you liked the base game you’ll love the expansion, and if you didn’t like the base game the expansion isn’t going to do anything to change your mind.

Recommended for FETH fans.

The Snack World
Looks good on Switch. Really clean in handheld. Solid release. Charming as heck and feels like a Fantasy Life/Final Fantasy Explorers crossover. Not far enough in to make a call on the full gameplay experience, but it seems fun, chill and relaxed. The one thing I do have against it is the incredibly cheap voice work for grunt sounds and little one-off words muttered. Sounds like it was almost done in studio. But, that’s something I can easily overlook when the rest of the game is so charming.

Warriors Orachi 4 Ultimate
Good update, but largely more of the same. Either you like this style of game or you don’t. And if you do you’re probably don’t need my recommendation to know if you’ll like it. I will say though that I like the magic system, and the dash attack of Samurai Warrior characters replacing the heavy attack of Dynasty Warrior characters. Still, Dynasty Warriors 8 is a cheaper alternative that, as far as I’m concerned is just as good.

As for Metro Redux
I’m very excited. I tried playing these games before but I just couldn’t get into them because the aiming didn’t feel right. But that has been solved because this version of the game adds gyro! Preordered and ready to go. In fact, I even picked up Exodus on Steam (just released) with the 2 expansions in preparation, which also can be played with gyro thanks to being on PC. Seems like these two games are the new gold standard of what a Switch port should look like. More and more we are seeing the quality of Switch ports increasing. It’s like they realized oh, games are actually selling. Maybe we should do a good job and they’ll sell more... what a novel concept.

@sixrings
so what you are saying is that I should be content that my 2017 tech is doing the same thing as my 2005 tech

1 Thats a lie. It’s doing way more. Saying it’s doing “the same” is just a downright falsehood and I’m gonna call you on that right now. If you’re going to complain about something at least get your facts right. The original Metro games on 360/PS3 ran like garbage and looked way worse without any of the new improvements to visuals. You’re getting a current generation experience in the palm of your hand with very little downgrade. NOT the last gen experience. Did you even watch the video?

2 There is no such thing as a standard for “2017 tech” or “2006 tech”. Tech has an incredibly large range and the year has very little to do with it. You’re comparing apples to moon pies and complaining they’re not the same. What is “2005 tech” even supposed to mean?” Oh, you mean the $600 large console tech. That tech. Not $200 portable tech. If you had $200 portable tech from 2005 then you would have an argument. But there is no such thing. The $200 portable tech from back then was somewhere stuck between an N64 and a PS2. You cannot compare portable tech to large power console PC tech. It’s an ignorant comparison that accomplishes nothing except perpetuate more ignorance.

3 Switch is the pinnacle of MODERN, 2020 TECH for the given price range. That’s a fact. It’s a provable fact because there is no other portable gaming handheld on the market in 2020 that offers better tech for the price. There has never been another portable handheld on the market at any point in time that offers better tech for the price.

Nobody needs a pro. You don’t need 1080p 60 on every single game running on a $200-300 portable device. You might want it but nobody needs it. Just sit your butt tight and wait because technology progresses through time. You’re too impatient, demanding things that we won’t see for another 10 years. You want 1080p 60 across the board on a handheld for $200-300, you’re gonna be waiting till the year 2035. So save it. Like a broken record in this thread. Over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. “Oh, the Switch doesn’t have the same performance in the palm of your hand as modern power consoles”... ya no kidding, but the “or $600 power consoles from 10 years ago...” that’s BS. This $200 handheld is consistently outperforming those $600 power consoles from 10 years ago (which frankly, is an amazing accomplishment), and has set the bar for portable gaming devices today.

Metro being 720p in handheld sounds pretty good. I'll probably still wait til it comes down in price, but I having a shooter to play on-the-go.

@Dezzy
I grabbed the games for like $7 each on PC recently, which is a killer price. They’re $25 each on Switch, but of course, that’s day one price, and at least it’s already cut by more than 50%. Should be able to scoop them both for $25-30 within the next year or so, I would imagine. Not quite PC level pricing but, it never is.
