Good. That means it's actually playable now. Analog twin Stick wiggling should of died off or at least taken a major backseat in the mid 2000's right when the Wii remote paved the way during the holidays of 2006. Metroid Prime 3(07')was the ultimate motion pointer aiming/Wii remote showcase that totally put the nail in the coffin, for me, with analog cross hair based aiming permanently Twin stick aiming is such a junky, jerky, unenjoyable archiac unintuitive unatural immersion breaking lazy way to aim in first or 3rd person. You'd have to be out of your mind to chose it over properly done motion pointer aiming. It feels like a colossal restraint, and something that should of stayed dead in the past. Imagine playing sin and punishment 2 and aiming with an analog stick. People that would opt for that control method actually exist.lol

Anyhoo, I never messed with either Portal 1or 2 on XBOX360, not only because it was analog aiming based, but because i was too knee deep in the Wii & DSLite during that generation. But now that Motion Pointer aiming is supported, i'll give it a chance.

BTW, just out of pure randomness. will we ever get physical Switch releases for Cuphead, Ghosts n' Goblins Ressurection, Cyber Shadow and Steel Assault? Talk about missed oppertunities!

Surprised Stricted Limited or Limited Run Games hasn't at least jumped on Cyber Shadow and Steel Assault.

I thought physical Cuphead was on its way at some point? Like in 50 years mebbe.

I reckon GnG R won't be released on cart - if they're not doing arcade stadium hard copies, they won't do that.

Long live the Wii remote & Wii remote Plus hehe. Switch Pro controller Gyro aiming in conjuction with an analog stick works very well for several titles too! Quake Remaster, Splatoon 2, Breath of the Wild just to name a few(Minus Toad Treasure Tracker etc). I hope Nintendo releases an advanced Sensor Bar(with the option of either Wired or Wireless if possible) and plunks an IR camera sensor at the top of their controller(s) for their next console to allow for seemless motion and to by pass the need to press a recenter button like they did with the Wii remote, but even better

And nintendo seriously needs to bring back strereoscopic 3D with their next handheld or some how magically incorperate it with a device for our TV's haha. I find it hilarious, so many people clamouring for retina resolution(Native 4K-8K), higher frame rates like 120fps(both of which i love btw) that can replicate real world motion, but most gamers scoff at the idea of a new 3D technology, aka 'real world depth perception' which imo matters more than the other two. I mean, they all matter of course. But when you dismiss the latter you wind up missing a big piece of the puzzle and the end result is a flat depthless 2D painting in motion. 3D on the other hand is an absolute gamer changer. It would allow us to feel like we're looking through a window into another world.

I truly miss gaming on my launch aqua blue 3DS when it was cutting edge all those years ago.That thing was mind blowing at the time for titles like Super Monkey Ball 3D, Resident evil revelations in first person mode, Pilotwings Resort and many others. It felt so unatural and awkward having to switch back to playing flat/2D games on my Wii by comparison. Nintendo gave us a taste of the future with 3D & AR, and then took it away from us with the Wii U & Switch...

Sure, when it comes to gaming, Retina resolution(Native 4K) and realistic motion(120fps) are a thing or we're gearing towards that direction to the point where it will ultimately become standard for more powerful consoles like the Series X Pro for example, but 3D has been left forgotton. But it at least lives on in VR.

I really hope Nintendo Brings back 3D & AR again and does something really innovative. If you're not into portable gaming like I am, than the Switch's only other notable innovation it has to offer is HD Rumble, which unfortnately doesn't feel nearly as good with the Pro controller(probably because it's housed in thicker plastic and the HD Rumble device packed inside isn't large enough to cover enough ground inside the pro controller) than it does with the detached joy-cons, simply because they're tiny and have thinner plastic, so the HD rumble itself feels far more pornounced, effective, defined and you really do catch those neat little subtleties which feel almost drowned out, muted and unnoticeble with the pro controller.

@NeonPizza yes!!! I have 2 handhelds and their my main consoles. I'd really like to see a new console use AR in a ''good'' way. That could be very cool!

and yea the 3DS was mindblowing (I got a "new" 2DS XL, 2 years ago it's awesome)

I'm also supporting Mario Rabbids Sparks of Hope day one. The fact they also brought on the Ori soundtrack composer alongside Grant Kirkhoppe is insane. Game looks gorgeous, too.

Yet another Switch exclusive masterpiece.

@NeonPizza
I loved the 3D effect of 3DS, and was a diehard fan of it to the very last.

However. Most were not. Nintendo has the data on it. There's a reason the later 3DS releases started doing 2D only. And the 2DS and 2DS XL reflected that. So unfortunately it's just not going to happen. The demand isn't there, and 3D gaming has been relegated to the gimmick bucket.

@JaxonH not just the Ori composer but the legendary Yoko Shimomura, Mario+Rabbids Sparks of Hope soundtrack is gonna be phenomenal, if Mario+Rabbids Kingdom Battle music was amazing with just Grant Kirkhope, imagine what they can do with the composer of Ori and Yoko Shimomura composing the music now, god level music in this game.

i like HD Rumble.

@JaxonH Gaming has not done Smell-O-Vision yet, that could be the new gimmick of this generation.

Imagine a black box you plug in to your console and it sprays perfume based on the smell that's needed in the moment like pizza or blueberries.

I wonder which smell would be produced while playing Splatoon.
Fish and ink?

Lovely!

This was actually being tested for VR, along with sensations of hot and cold.

Cool party trick, but nothing of value to the gaming experience imo.

So, in October, Switch is getting ports of two PS4 games with famously amazing soundtracks, AND an exclusive that a bunch of frankly stellar composers are working on. Be sure to enjoy these games with headphones or proper sound systems.

At least 3D lives on in VR where it's 100x more effective, since you're like...there, instead of looking through a window if Current TV's were in fact 3D. A great white shark in VR(Think PS VR2) coming straight towards you will be one zillion times more frightening than seeing that happen on a 65" 3D TV. But still, i want QD-OLED to adopt a new 3D technology that uses similar tech that the 3DS does without the need for glasses while giving you an ultra wide sweet spot with zero comprises being made to the picture quality. But alas, wont be happening for a while. Because people are crazy.

Hurrr, bring on that 8K resolution so we can see every single stupid little pore on some actors face, HDR(which has zero quality standards) and lets ruin that cinematic motion with the sope opera effect which makes it feel like you're there on set watching actors do things in front of the camera. lol Not only that, but all of these weirdo's keep obsessing over more TV brightness/nits. OLED's can already get bright enough for SDR to the point where it will make your eye balls sizzle. This is the mind set that a lot of younger millenials and Gen Z's have adopted.

I 100% agree with you! I'm so glad I'm nothing like my generation (I watched VHS tapes before they were hip! In the early 2000's)

haha, nice! VHS tapes still have their advantages. older movies from the 80's and early 90's be it horror moves or cartoons for example alost benifit from the crackling, softer/fuzzier picture, low res and overall VHS aesthetic.

Sorry, but the little mermaid for example juiced up to 1080p with it's remastered-whatever razor sharp gross picture on Disney+ looks almost artiifcal and a lot less organic than watching it on a VHS tape plus a crusty tube TV imo. On VHS those lines are softened, imperfections are hidden, everything just looks more believable and alive.

There were complaints about eye straining or people being annoyed by having to sit perfectly to hit that sweet spot. It demanded more from the player and kind of knocked down that comfort level. I get that. yet I never had any eye straining issues personally, but completely understand the frustration and limitations with the sweet spot. Just going off center ever so slightly messes the effect up so youve got to sit there perfectly positioned like a stone. lol But wasn't the sweet spot widened with the New 3DS?

I still much prefer the launch 3DS's screen vs he 3DS XL & New 3DS XL's. I returned both simply because the picture, as expected looked less sharp, blown up and the 3D effect looked less pronounced, less striking and more subdued.Plus, the wider sweet spot of the new 3DS for some bizarr reason didn't work at all for me, it kept causing the image to shake like crazy, even after exchanging it twice for another one thinking there was a defect, it ended up being the same exact case with my 3rd.

The regular 'new' 3DS released in JPN seems more ideal since it slightly increases the screen while giving you all of those other upgrades. Still, the OG Launch 3DS has a secret brightness boost if you play it plugged in with the power cable that the others do not, and that brightness boost makes all the difference. Without, 3DS games are kind of dim.

Ah, 2011 was such an awesome and magical year for me with the release of the 3DS, and all of those great games coming our way from nintendo's most amazing(imo) E3 ever, from 2010. the 3DS Unveiling and letting the crowd get a taste of it first hand, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Golden Eye 007, Donkey Kong Country Returns, the return of Kid Icarus just to name a few. Plus Nintendo Life was it's peak imo. I've been with this site before it was NL, aka VC-Reviews back in 2007(or was it 2008?) and it just isn't the same anymore. over 99% of the people i knew are long gone. It's a bit disheartening seeing as how the NES, SNES, Genesis or even C64 are rarely ever talked about in the forums. But i get it, the new generation has swept in, those that have grown up with the N64, gamecube and whatever else. Which is cool, I get. But for me, those are my least favorite nintendo consoles. Us late 30 year olds and onwards are a rarity in the forums.

Doesn't Live A Live have combat aken to secret of mana, rather than being full on turn-based?
