The Lite has sold reasonably well, but it hasn't displaced the demand for the hybrid model at all. So there's no reason to think they won't repeat this strategy with a successor. The hybrid form factor clearly has staying power, and, given the fact that it doesn't cannibalize its older brother's sales at all, the Lite is basically just extra money. It also fills that crucial "budget handheld" niche that the 3DS/2DS XL used to occupy.

@Ralizah I can agree with this mindset. I'd still very much be open to a premium version of the Switch as well. So long as the hybrid nature of the device remains.

Are the Joycons on the revised Switch more power effecient? They seem to drain slower.

Destiny, justice and retribrution will be mine.

Just watched gamexplains review of mega man z/x collection on switch. Nothing but good things to say about it, it seems. Looks like I'll grab this next week..

@Aozz101x Man, that looks like it could be actually good. Adult Swim games (and Cartoon Network in general) has actually had some decent games in their history so...

@NintendoByNature That is one I have to pick up. Do we know if Zero Collection's changes are in?

And jeez I'm hearing good things about Metro collection too...

Played some Samurai Shodown today. Didn't touch the story mode yet but played some online matches with my sister. It looks, sounds and plays like Samurai Shodown. It's fun. I'll check out the other modes tomorrow.

I also played the pre-order bonus Samurai Shodown! 2. I doubt many have played it before since it's originally for Neo Geo Pocket Color. It's fascinating how well it plays even though it only has two buttons. The music and sound effects took a big hit though. I can recognize the themes but they play at 1/3 speed. It's also full of translating mistakes like other old SNK games.

Played through the story with Shiki. It was very easy, at least until the last two stages. It seems to have unlockable cards that can add more special moves to your characters as well as passive bonuses. They'll probably come in handy when trying to beat the story on hard. Seems like the game had card trading before but that's not available in this version. But to my surprise, the multiplayer mode is. Since it's originally a handheld game, the emulator links with itself and provides a split screen game. The funny thing is that it splits it like this:
Untitled
All in all, it's a great bonus.

I programmed a simple tool that copies all Switch screenshots from an SD card and places them to folders according to the game:

@link3710 I'm not sure honestly. But I'm eyeing metro too. I did have it ordered but canceled it due to funds. I'm pretty sure Wal-Mart will have both games discounted too so that's where I'll pick up megaman next week.

I noticed that Call of Juarez is 25% off on the US eShop when I went to go download the other Doom games. More shooters for me!

Doom 3 or Call of Juarez will make for a very nice change of pace after I finish Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair

How are you liking Impossible Lair? I'm absolutely loving it. Can't wait to play it every day!

@rallydefault It's really good! Scratches that DKC itch. The soundtrack is amazing too.

@Aozz101x That's a surprise! Did the show get a reboot at some point? I'm surprise such an old cartoon would get a game now, all of the sudden. I remember liking the show well enough but I never got too into it. I somehow both like and dislike the art style at the same time.

@Heavyarms55 Yeah, the series had a season 5 that finished the story a few years ago, and we saw some season 5 content in the trailer unsurprisingly. Season 5 was adult swim, hence their making it instead of CN.

I've been playing it too. Really enjoying it - makes me wonder why (given DKC:R was such a mega hit more than a decade ago) this is the first time anyone has ever seriously attempted to do a high quality take on the same concept. I don't think it's as good as either DKC:R or DKC:TF but it's still very good.

Gives me definite DKC3 vibes throughout.

That yacht club games presents is about to kick off in 15 or so. I'll check it out myself.

@link3710 Would be surprised if this was coming to Switch if it ends up targeting PS5/XBSX. However if there is a PS4/XOX version then the Switch I think is more likely. But yeah, given how it seems to be only now just starting development it's going to be a long while till we see this game.

@FragRed I mean, they specifically said it's coming to all platforms so... why wouldn't Switch be included? It's not like Platinum is a company that avoids Nintendo releases.

FragRed

@link3710 As of right now that may well be their plan, but things change and it will all depend on how much of a sacrifice in performance the end game will need to take a hit to make it workable on the Switch, and if it’s not something that’s anywhere near completion as it doesn’t seem to be if they are needing to open a new studio to help develop the game, then who knows what the end target platforms end up being. Best to not assume anything until that Switch logo appears on a trailer.

link3710

@FragRed While it's fine not to assume, I meant that I don't see why you'd be surprised if it was announced for Switch when platforms are revealed after that comment. Sure it could miss it, but considering it's in the initial plans I don't see it as surprising to be there.
