Nintendo Gaming / Has anyone played....?
« Last post by Khushrenada on January 24, 2023, 06:24:31 PM »
...Immortals Fenyx Rising?

I see it on sale cheap on the eShop. At the time of release, it just seemed like a hollow attempt to copy BotW and try to cash in on mimicking its style. Like the Carnival Games to Nintendo's Wii Sports. Yet, now I'm at the point where I'd be willing to play something that's similar to BotW since it has been years since I've last played that title. Of course, with Tears of the Kingdom soon to come in a few months, it would seem more prudent to just wait for that. Any comments from other users here about the game?


...Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin?

I've had the first game on my Wish List since around 2019 when it came up in discussions with pokepal148 and Mop it up and both of them giving the 3DS high praise. However, by that point in time, it was pretty hard to find a physical copy of the game and I've still yet to do so or play this. So, now I wonder if I should just forget about that and try this game out instead. It's getting pretty heavily discounted on the eShop. Is it better, worse or equal to the first? What's the word on Wings of Ruin?


...NEO: The World Ends With You?

Again, it is a game where I'd like to get around to playing the first one. In fact, I actually did start it once years ago like 2012 and got through the first chapter / opening. I remember feeling like the dual screen battle screen battle system wasn't quite gelling or clicking with me yet and I wanted to get the geography of locations a bit more firm in my mind but then I ended up setting it aside and never getting back to it. TWEWY was always regarded as a top DS game but this long asked for sequel seems to have come and gone pretty quietly. Anyone have anything to chime in about it? I imagine the battle system would be different for this game compared to the first. Is it better or worse?




As for this thread, I thought I'd try and take a page out of Discord and see if we can't blend some of that energy with these forums. In that sense, much like popping into the General chat and asking if anyone there has played a game or wanting to get some information on a title, users can hop into this thread and post their query. Responses may not be as fast but feel free to post anytime if you see something in this thread and want to comment on it. Much easier to bump threads here than on Discord.  ;)

Ooooo. This seems to have been a popular poll. 8 votes already. These days that's a big vote turnout for the old NWR electoral college.

I voted for 7 months in the poll. There's gotta be some PlayStation games that get in the charts with enough frequency against the aging Switch, right?

That's what I'm thinking. Like, the PS5 software situation sometimes feels pretty sparse / dire like Wii U levels as it still hardly has much exclusive software and it feels like long gaps in between when a game releases for the system. Or maybe it just feels like that because of the Switch putting such a chokehold on the chart. Still, a lot of games get released for both Switch and a PS system so a PS4 or PS5 game will likely chart then even if it drops off after a week or two. As long as some third parties keep staying multiplatform then it will be hard to pull off the 30 for 30. Plus, there's over 2,000,000 PS5 systems in Japan now. When is that going to start translating into some PS5 games having some legs? The 30th position just sold 1,640 copies. That's not a lot of software to be sold to make the chart. Which makes it all the worse for PS5 with it being unable to clear that low bar and have Nintendo take all 30 spots.

I've been meaning to check and see how many times Nintendo did pull off the Top 30 year but maybe someone here knows that answer already....?

🤣🤣🤣

Lakers got the job done. Can't say the same for my Dubs....
Wiggins is still not back to form, Klay was back to forcing shots when others stand around him open.... Poole losing the ball at the end of the game has become something to expect at this point.
This was Defeat snatched from the jaws of victory game. Not like the Blazers blowing a huge lead, but the Warriors failing to get a huge lead in the first place, when it was very possible.

Probably my next switch game.   I do have a question though.

Can you gain affection and get in relationships with say the female protag and a female party member.  Probably a small bar to pass but that is one of the things I liked about Fates.

That Grizzlies vs Lakers game was a roller coaster.  Not only on the court but that squable at half time with Tee Morant and Shannon Sharpe.   I was losing my mind the last 5 minutes of the game.
