The only thing really limiting Odyssey at this point is no significant DLC yet. The 1.2.0 hint arts and playing Luigi's Balloon World to unlock all the costumes have been fun over the past 7 or so months (there's about a month left of content) but new Kingdoms would be a lot better.

Right now Odyssey, Sunshine and 3D World are at the top (1st, 2nd, 3rd), DLC Kingdoms would push Odyssey far ahead.

Odyssey is a great game. A few nitpicks I have are the bosses; the rabbits remind me of the Koopalings, design-wise pretty boring. And I couldn't be bothered to look for all the Moons, maybe with a guide some time in the future. 120 Stars are enough for me!

Odyssey was the Mario game I've been wanting since Sunshine it was awesome in every way to me. I'm still having fun with it now 10 months later just messing around with the snapshot mode, exploring looking for some of those last moons and unlocking new outfits. My only wish now is either a Sunshine HD or Sunshine Odyssey dlc.

I enjoyed Galaxy and yeah it was good but it never felt to me like a worthy successor to Mario 64 and Sunshine.

I'm hoping I can update my games on my daughter's Switch using my Micro SD, then just transfer over to my Switch so I'm not forced to update my firmware, kind of like "sideloading", like I have to do with certain apps (finding a decent Power Point and Excel is impossible on Amazon store), and games available only through Google Play

@Grumblevolcano In an age where everything is sold in pieces to us, I'm glad we got a complete experience out of the box.

@Grumblevolcano
I wish Kirby Star Allies would add a few levels, even with the two extra you get access to after beating the very short main story, it is just still too lacking in content and levels/length, a nice DLC would be cool,
I think an add-on for L.A. Noir would be awesome too, the way it's set up, it would be the perfect game for constant updates, adding main cases and side cases too

I consider it an extreme option for extreme situations. The few who have come close to that have long since vanished (in a few cases, because the mods probably exiled them).

I wonder when hackers will break apart Switch games and start the Fan Made game mods, I would sooo consider downloading those, I have played many game mods my friends had on the 3DS and other systems they used emulators on their 3DS's and some of them are awesome, so yah, I'm looking forward to seeing what Michaelis will download

Odyssey is fantastic.

As for Kingdom Hearts, the original game didn’t age gracefully at all. The worlds are to cramped to support the gameplay and it results in a bad camera. Despite the great love for Disney the developers poured into this title, I wouldn’t reccomend anyone to play the original.

KH II and Birth by Sleep are far better games to play. Games support the playstyle way better with levels being bigger and a more stable camera.

While camera controls and unclear objectives can be an issue in Kingdom Hearts 1, I do still find it to be an enjoyable game.

So basically it's not actually Dark Souls Remastered, just the 360 version with worse effects and much lower sound quality, a dynamic 1080p resolution (Despite being stated as pure 1080p in marketing) and drops to as low as 20fps. None of the improvements from the Remaster are actually added.

And this got delayed? Aight.

It sounds like what you should be saying is "360 version with the game play improvements from the Remastered Edition, improved performance, improved resolution (even the lowest being better then the original), and using the same graphics textures (mostly) as the 360 version but with slightly worse audio".

It doesn't try for 60 fps, but apparently does a much better job at hitting and maintaining 30 fps then the 360 version. Which drops down to 12 fps or lower at times, apparently. And having a drop from 30 fps to low 20's isn't too bad when you consider the original game as mentioned could apparently drop into single digit frame rates in the same places.

Also, the comparison also did point out that the XB1 and PS4 remasters have a target of 60 fps, but can regularly drop into the low 40's. Meanwhile the Switch version might drop from 30 to 28 fps in those same places. A difference that is unlikely to actually be noticed by most people.

I dunno. That doesnt like a remaster to me. Sounds more like an enhanced port.

Yes you have improved resolution and performance but the actual quality of the assets have not been improved, thus this isn't "Dark Souls Remastered". It's more like...Dark Souls Portable Edition.

I’ve kinda been curious with the DS delay... Do you need the online Ninty thing to use the online stuff for it? Bit curious how it launced pretty much the week after the online service launched if so - did Ninty ask them to hold it back to give them another ‘online title’ to justify cost?

Massive leap/conspiracy theory I know, just one of my curious wonderings that entered my brain way back when. I got impatient & grabbed it on the xbox anyway so no rush for the switch one (just yet).

@BrainOfGrimlock It launched a MONTH after the Online. I'd assume they'd be better with the timing if Nintendo asked.

Geez, is it a month already that the online has been out? Sorry, my bad, was too lazy to check & thought it was last 7-10 days-ish ball park - haven’t signed up myself as rarely play online etc.

Tongue was firmly in cheek with my suggestion in any case, just one of those bizarre ‘you don’t think...?’ moments.

BrainOfGrimlock

FaeKnight

Yeah it has been. September 18th was the launch date of NSO. And yes, you need an NSO subscription to use the Online features for the game. Which means if you don't have an NSO subscription you can't team up with others online, invade other players, or be invaded by other players.

As to this not being a "remaster", I'd say that improved performance and better resolutions (not to mention bug fixes) would qualify it as being a "remaster".
