You get Peach's veil and wedding dress as a shop outfit in the postgame, does that count?

Once you beat the final fight you unlock new hat or outfit every 20 moons up until something insane like 840, there's a lot of cosmetic options and some of them are absolutely great.

My favorite so far is The Mario 64 outfit since it also makes Mario's face look like his N64 model.

Am I reading that wrong or are they saying there is going to be a Switch + XBC2 bundle for black friday?

No, but they probably understood the press release wrong. The special bundle is probably scheduled for a Holiday release, or December 1st.

Metroid Prime 3 did.

All their mobile games have things that if you do unlock my Nintendo coins, called Missions

Missions are pretty neat. I hope they do that for Switch games. An actual thing you get and can use for acheivements. Only problem is there's nothing to spend coins on.

I guess that makes sense. Maybe it was more the cutscenes and the rain that got on my nerves. Maybe if they would have covered the walls in ice instead of making it rain the whole time.

I thought it was fine in concept but at least twice as long as it needed to be. I couldn't believe every time I checked the map and thought "they can't seriously keep this going all the way up to the Zora town, can they?"

I'm not sure anything will dethrone Yakuza 0 as my GOTY but Kingdom Battle, Odyssey, and Zelda are all on the top 10 for sure. The last time I had even 3 Nintendo games on that list was like....2014, when MK8, Smash, and Bayo2 came out. I also had Rusty's Real Deal on there because it owns.

For BOTW, I appreciate the sparse ambient music. I'd go nuts if I had to listen to the Zelda 1 over world music repeating over and over for hours.

Normally I hate electro/brostep WOMPWOMP poo poo, but I dug this remix.

I'm so loving bad at Golf Story lol.

I think ultimately my list will be Yakuza 0, Mario Odyssey, Zelda, Prey, Persona 5, Fire Pro World, Resident Evil 7, Mario+Rabbids, Shadow Of War, and maybe Night in the Woods. I haven't even finished Evil Within, Metroid, Dishonored 2.5, Ruiner, etc etc. It's been a ridiculously strong year so I don't think Golf Story will be on my top list but it's still a really charming and good exclusive to play on the go.

So Shadow of War is worth a play through? I liked the first game once I gave up on just spending too much time on taking out Orc captains and actually went through the story. Though it did have a bit of the Assassin's Creed type repetitiveness.

Too bad that isn't on the Switch.

SoW is basically "bigger and better and now with a difficulty option" version of Mordor. You're still doing a lot of the same stuff but now there are way more orc varieties, more and bigger areas, fortress building with armies, different ways to gently caress with captains, utilizing bodyguards for yourself and other orcs, way more wacky skillset poo poo, loot, and so on. It's basically asking for a footlong double meat from Subway after getting bored with the last 6-inch veggie delite.
