I'm considering this though it seems silly to buy a physical version of a game that has changed so drastically with updates. It isn't like DLC either. From what's I've read, Super Bomberman R is far improved by fixing the frame rate that it's like a different game now.

Maybe I should wait for Super Bomberman S.

Or Bombergirl.

I guess I'm not buying this.

Axiom Verge Physical Release is Coming to Nintendo Switch

I guess I'm finally buying this. No date or price. I'd bet on the Nintendo Switch tax.

And the Pacers lost.................

Paul George is going to look great in a Lakers uniform in 2018.

And just so we're clear, Paul George won't make the Lakers good if they don't do more than add one player (particularly if they subtract assets just to get him instead of waiting out a year). If you're going to be on a mediocre team, might as well be on Manhattan Beach while you're at it.

By "up in the air," do you mean "hopeless?"

I was under the impression that the NES Classic Edition's entire existence was to distract everyone from focusing on the fact that there was ****-all on Wii U. Making headlines for having a sold out product is much better than making headlines for having a product it can barely give away. Sure, it can make headlines on both counts. At least one is positive.

These nostalgia machines are easy money for Nintendo, but there are no long-term benefits besides scoring some goodwill points. Nintendo can merely hope 'member berries translate into Switch sales. I'm not saying I agree with the strategy, just suggesting a possible explanation. Nintendo also doesn't like having a lot of extra inventory. I remember hearing that Nintendo originally intended this to be an extremely limited release, didn't expect it to be so popular (because *confusedjackiechan.jpg), then added an extra production run.

I think there's room for both. Nintendo might get people interested in Switch and the eventually return of the Virtual Console through Classic Edition hardware, but some people just want to play the old games, and $60 is an impulse buy; $300+ is not.

Wasn't the NES Classic Edition powered via a USB port? If Nintendo used a proprietary AC adapter, that would certainly discourage modding though it would probably drive up the price a bit.

I'm pretty much just expecting not to be able to get my hands on one of these (assuming reports are true). It's mildly annoying, not infuriating. I'd just want it for collecting purposes.

Besides balancing, Namco Bandai finished development over a year ago. That's plenty of time to add a bunch of characters and stages though, managing my expectations, I'm expecting four additional characters max. Even if there were more, I feel like they would be ready to go by Q3 or Q4.

Nintendo's problem is timing the release of Super Smash Bros. which is a much better problem to have than not having anything to release. I think it's in Nintendo's best interest to spread out releasing the ports (enhanced or otherwise) just so the lineup doesn't just look like a Wii U graveyard.

I originally thought that, but I don't believe Nintendo will release Splatoon 2 and a Super Smash Bros. port so close to each other. Nintendo may want to do a 20th Anniversary thing for Super Smash Bros. though 2019 would be a long time to be without the series. Unless Nintendo fills in the late summer release gap, I think early to mid September 2017 may be a good time. If not, early 2018.

Let's face it, it's a screen you use a lot.
So is the pause screen.

It's asinine that "teleport somewhere to view information that could very easily be shown in the pause menu" is even a real suggestion. As brilliant as Breath of the Wild, it still does some weird stuff like this.

and OMG they actually brought back friend codes.... SMFH. WTF Nintendo. WWYDT!?
Friend Codes are still silly considering Nintendo Network IDs exist and can be linked to My Nintendo. Maybe Nintendo needed a clean break to institute yet another new system? To Nintendo's credit (and I can't believe I'm semi-defending this), Friend Codes are significantly less annoying on Switch. You only have to enter it once then your friend can just accept the request instead of having to enter your Friend Code as well. Additionally, you can connect really easily in person and if you were previously friends with someone on say Miitomo, the system will suggest that person as a friend without forcing anyone to enter a Friend Code.

Friend Codes are still hella-lame though, and the friend list isn't particularly useful right now.

You can make five movements before slipping, and I've found four climbs and one lunge cover distance just fine in rain.
That works sometimes, particularly when higher ground can help when planning to attack an enemy camp. Some of the Korok seeds involving climbing a high thing. Sure, I can come back later, but I'm already at the thing I need to climb. I guess I don't really understand why Nintendo even programmed the rain to fall so frequently. Some animals (or more accurately "materials" to turn into elixirs) are more common and merchants apparently sell different things in the rain. I still don't think that balances out.

I completed my first Divine Beast. I wanted to get the Master a sword first before tackling much of the main story, but I couldn't deal with all the goddamn rain in Zora's Domain. For a game that encourages you to go anywhere, its weather effects that don't do too much sure are limiting as far as exploration. I would understand making climbing more difficult (e.g. use more stamina) or even requiring special gear. Being unable to climb at all is just silliness. A good amount of the world is completely inaccessible when it rains which is 107% of the time in The Legend of Rain: Breath of the Rain.

This looks subpar. Can we just have a new NBA Jam plz?

I'm trying to find as many Korok Seeds as I can. I'm sure there will come a point when I won't need the inventory space. I'm mainly using the Korok Seed search as a means to explore the world with a goal in mind. It gives me something to look for so traveling doesn't seem so aimless which I suppose is part of the point of including so many. I have doubts i'll find all of them without help.

I scum-saved until the Super Smash Bros. Link Amiibo gave me the Tunic of Twilight. I'm probably not even going to use it; I just wanted it in my inventory. I don't even use Epona either. I just boarded her at the stable just to say I have Epona. I want to get through the game without help from Amiibo though I'll take the aesthetic rewards.

Also, totally getting dominated by previously mentioned Lynel. I've managed to get a flurry rush attack once. I need to improve my timing.

I got the i-Lex officially licensed hard pouch. It's clearly imported because all the text is in Japanese. I wanted blue, but only red was was eligible for Amazon Prime. I'm hoping the AC adapter fits. It might be a tight fit, but I think it will. I'll report back on Monday or Tuesday.
This is a good case. It's a little snug with the AC adapter, but it should get the job done.

I don't have much confidence that Switch will get a physical release unless Limited Run Games or another publisher steps in some time after the game launches. I'm weary of backing the Kickstarter so as to avoid an unlikely but potential Shantae: Half-Genie Hero situation in which a physical copy was announced like a month before release. Granted, it isn't the same kind of situation. Ultimately, while Battle Princess Madelyn looks cool, patience prevails. In the off chance there is a physical release on Switch, I'll be happier with the physical release than the Kickstarter bonuses.

I'm intrigued by Battle Princess Madelyn (it's basically indie Ghouls 'n Ghosts). It's coming to Switch (and Wii U apparently). There are 11 days left on the Kickstarter which has nearly tripled its original goal.

I like supporting Kickstarter projects though I'm not familiar with Casual Bit Games and I'm holding out for a potential Switch physical copy. PS4 is getting a physical release through Limited Run Games.

Apparently, I have to sneak around a Lynel and stealth collect shock arrows, but I kind of just want to yolo-murderize him.
On the subject of horses, why don't horses drop anything when they're killed? I wanted to cook up their meat so that "I'm so hungry I could eat a horse!" no longer had to be just an expression.
I thought the same thing. You get to eat almost everything else. I took a picture of a majestic doe for the Hyrule Compendium then took out my bow and shot it in the face. Instant prime raw meat.

That quote war was glorious. Thank you.

Honestly, I think you should. You put a lot of time into this three-heart/original stamina wheel run.

I think I'm finally ready to enter the next area. I took a raft to the middle of the bay to reach a shrine. After a lot of patience, I defeated a Guardian Scout IV and scored some gear I probably shouldn't have at this point. I currently have seven hearts. I encountered a minor spoiler a couple weeks ago so I know I need a particular amount of health to do a thing. That's intentionally vague though I suspect most people here are much further than me and can probably figure out what I'm referring to anyway. Once I have the requisite amount of health, I'll upgrade stamina. Besides a few isolated occasions, I haven't needed more. I needed a little extra stamina to mount the horse I wanted. I named her Glue. I want to borrow my friend's Link Amiibo to score a free Epona for no other reason than it's Epona. I'll probably stick with Glue unless I find fancier horse.

I encountered one Lynel. I didn't engage. I was on a cliff. He spotted me and started shooting things. I was mostly able to avoid them. I promptly fucked right off.
