I wonder if these will be straight up 1:1 or if there will be some changes and additions.

I'm not sure I ever knew was this was, and feel like I still don't.

I like that they seem to be trying something a little different here, I'll probably have to check this out at some point.

Nothing but crickets in here? Does no one like the 3DS? :(

What a great little system that thing is. Despite its rocky start, it ended up becoming one of Nintendo's best systems, I feel. There's a lot of games on it I enjoyed, and I also didn't have a DS so it opened up a lot for me. As ubiquitous as is the Switch, I kind of miss some of the special features that came from the 3DS being a dedicated handheld.

I still have some more games to play on it, but, if I were forced to choose today, my top ten would probably look something like this:

1. Luigi's Mansion 2
2. The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes
3. Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon
4. Fantasy Life
5. Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan
6. Fire Emblem Awakening
7. Puzzle & Dragons Z / Super Mario Bros. Edition
8. Monster Hunter Stories
9. Super Mario 3D Land
10. Metroid Prime Federation Force

I've never played a Pac-Man game before, so this probably wouldn't be a good starting point.

I will have a read through this thread to see any tips or anything like that in the coming days.
Since a large aspect of the game is exploration and discovery, my suggestion would be to play most of the game before reading this thread. I think it'd be more fun to experience things first within the game than to first read about them here.

I've never played a one! Um, is that a bannable offense around here...?

I've had that happen a few times, I don't think it's anything serious. As far as I can figure, it's caused by a loose connection from the system to the cartridge, so unfortunately the only way to fix it is to turn off the power, take out the cartridge, and re-insert it. Usually once the audio begins to mess up, the game will freeze the next time it loads a new screen / area.

When cleaning, be sure to also clean the system's cartridge connector too. I'd recommend a microfiber cloth for that, as something like tissue paper can get snagged and leave behind residue.

Sheesh! When did I become the dunce of Safe Words?!

Did you choose this one because no one had picked it yet?

This is the only Resident Evil game that I've played. I have it for Wii U and 3DS, so if anyone's interested in trying out the online co-op, let me know.

Depeche Mode - Enjoy the Silence because I do indeed enjoy silence, quiet down in here with all this noise! Just a buncha noise!

I heard the loser has to post a recording of themselves performing the DK Rap :o .
Yikes, I didn't realize there were such high stakes!

Hee hee yeah, my initial gut reaction was pretty bad, I usually try to wait until things settle down first. I'm pretty sure I stated that the Wii U would be another runaway success, which was based mostly on pre-orders selling out. Whoops! Admittedly I'm kind of baffled the Switch has sold as well as it has, but I won't get into that.

Third-party and indie stuff has increased sure, but it's still the same types of support Nintendo's been getting. This is straying from the original point anyway, that the context of my original comment in its conversation is still mostly true as Nintendo doesn't have third-party support the way they used to 20+ years ago. Taking that out of context seems to have caused some confusion, but I suspect that was your goal!  :o

Square has supported other successful Nintendo systems with older FF titles like GBA and DS, so I actually wasn't that surprised they supported the successful Switch as well, especially with Sony systems out of the equation. I'm honestly kind of surprised that Activision hasn't tried a Call of Duty game on the Switch, as the Wii got most of them, and even the Wii U and DS got some. Ubisoft seems scared to try some of their "big" games that they tried on Wii U as well, such as Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs, though I think they may have done a "cloud version" or something of an Assassin's Creed game?

Personally I haven't played and didn't own most of the games Switch gets so I've been pretty happy with it overall.

Oh whoops I almost missed this!
May I ask how you almost missed this?
Mainly I just don't spend as much time on NWR / the Internet anymore. I think I may have seen the signups a while ago, but got distracted by the Direct stuff and forgot to go back for a while.

When people mentioned third-party support, I think the context was the big companies, not indies. These days there are a lot of blurred lines between "third-party" and "indie" so it can sometimes be tough to figure out these generalities. It seemed like the Wii U and 3DS still got a lot of indie stuff so that remains a constant. 3DS and DS still had a fair amount of Japanese support.

TalkBack / Re: Nintendo Buying New Panels For Upgraded Switch?
« on: March 04, 2021, 12:51:06 PM »
This would track with the new Pokémon remakes releasing late this year(probably November also), so it makes total sense.

Do OLED screens still have trouble with screen burn-in, longevity? Those used to be the main knocks against them.
There have been many strides towards reducing the issue on both a hardware and software level, but it does still exist. If this new Switch included similar prevention methods as the TVs do, then it should be largely fine, especially since the current Switch already does things like dim the screen after a few minutes of inactivity and enters sleep mode from idling. May still not want to play NES games on it, though.

That first comment wasn't a prediction, it was my personal thought about the ho-hum Switch reveal trailer. Things got better after more information was revealed. It's funny how few people around the 'Net saw the Switch coming!

As far as my comment about third-party support however, I'd argue that statement is largely true. The Switch has a similar level of third-party support as the previous few Nintendo systems got, with most new releases skipping the Switch.

For a variety of reasons I don't plan on buying very many games lately anyway, so this should be fine for me. Though I am going to get Monster Hunter Rise at the end of Match, but I'll still be in the positive with just that.

Speed Golf mode is actually pretty similar to an idea I had of how Mario Golf games should play, so I guess that means I'll have to check this out at some point.

Mario Tennis Aces started with a roster of 16 and had 14 added over time with updates, so this game will probably do something similar.

Random thought. I get the feeling that Bowser's Fury was at least partially inspired by Wario's Woods.

Also random: this screenshot I took may come in handy sometime:

One of the things which I wish they kept was the ability to move using the D-pad. Since the movement isn't true analogue then I preferred to use it for this game since it felt more precise. It doesn't really make sense that the D-pad isn't an option, since there are unused buttons which could have been used for the functions they put on the D-pad in this version. Also, is it weird that I miss the dumb Miiverse posts at the end of each stage? Poor Miiverse, we hardly knew ye! I know they weren't going to put in a substitute for that, but they also took out the time trial ghosts as well, something they could have brought back. Perhaps this isn't the definitive version after all...!

If anyone's curious, here's a list of most of the changes from the Wii U version:

I don't know much about this, it is a free-to-play styled game?
