I’ll be honest, when I first heard the name GOD WARS I wasn’t expecting “generic anime SRPG”.

But I probably should have.

Why is the physical Mega Man Legacy Collection $5 more than the digital? Does it still show up as 2 titles?

Still debating paying 35 earth dollars for games that are already seared into my brain.

It’s supposed to come with a cool looking collector’s cloth as well but mine didn’t come with it.

You’re probably better off buying both collections digitally. Yes, they show up as two titles. One isn’t even on the cartridge, instead it comes with a download code for Legacy Collection 2. Just Legacy Collection 1 is actually on the cart.

So are there any travel docks (like just simple USB-C to HDMI cables) that are known to be safe? Or is literally every device that's not the Official Switch Dock potentially able to brick a Switch?

If Nintendo didn't make it, do not use it. It's that simple.

Or at least until Nintendo starts putting the seal of quality on 3rd party options, which they’ll probably never do for docks.

realtalk, Mischief Makers is probably one of the most unique games I've ever played. It was unfortunate it came out way too early, because it could have been a great cult game on Steam/3DS

You guys are giving me more of an appreciation of the N64 with all these games I forgot about. Yes, early 3D games haven’t aged as well, as say 16 bit games, but there was a lot of cool unique stuff.

I’d probably buy an N64 Classic now if the emulation is good even with more games hacked in.

A Robot Named Fight is still needs-suiting when it comes to metroids. I see the screen of that snake mini-boss from MM3 and get chills, probably going to get it digital.

The cartridge being half a game and a download code is really off-putting.

TF is the better game but HW will probably keep you entertained longer. I'd go HW now and try and get TF 2nd hand or on sale in a year or whatever.

I'll echo the sentiment that Tropical Freeze is a better game and one of the best platformers in existence, though Hyrule Warriors has limitless content--the con is that it's Musou content so it might fatigue you very quick and it's not that complex. Both games are Good.

Yeah, I’m already getting fatigued on Warriors. Something about the gameplay wears off quickly, I think there’s just too much of it.

Tropical Freeze if you want your Switch to have a sweet fruit flavor, Hyrule Warriors is you’re looking for a steak flavor.

That looks like one of the ones under a billion other names, so it has probably bricked systems too.

Weird promo pic thing. Or maybe the Switch keeps the display on if there’s no HDMI connected (so you’d be able to use it just as a charging stand), I haven’t actually tried that yet.
