Let me tell you about true luxury.

Imagine if instead of making ARMS, Nintendo made another game instead... like a new animal crossing or smash.

ARMS being a springboard to get Twintelle into Smash would make the game worthwhile. Also Barq and Byte

Today I traded in my entire physical switch collection (and a couple 3ds games) to gamestop and then rebought everything digitally. This didn't actually cost me any money to do. The siren call of best buys gamer club is strong but gently caress switching carts.

Everything's still downloading. I shouldn't I don't think since they're saved locally on the switch but this is nintendo so who knows.

Well, in two hours we go from playing purple and blue versus green in turf war to turf war with all the colours of the rainbow, if that's what you mean.

Also I'm sorry for your fun allergy, hope you feel better.

It would have been great like a month ago when there was nothing to play, now there are too many good games releasing again. Maybe I'll look for Stardew next time there is a gaming drought.

Nintendo is a curiosity to me. I'm trying to imagine any other company shutting off modes on a holiday weekend so that people can only play their causal, free to play, money making event.

Anyone playing Azure Striker Gunvolt? I'm playing on hard and it is very difficult. I think I might be about to beat a level but my gf won't let me stay in the hotel room and play while we're on vacation

You should enjoy your vacation, then learn the game on normal and start with the datastore stage (orange guy).

Hard mode is kind of a novelty. Once you know the game it's easier than normal in some ways since you have more power and earn more kudos. My best score on the intro stage is 500k but on hard i got 1.5 million.

Is there a comprehensive comparison list of FIFA features between PS4/Xbox and Switch? I'm still confused by what exactly is missing (perhaps this is evidence of why Switch users should only get simple things). What the developer trundled out today was a disappointment, I had seen a few interviews and had gotten the impression that they were actually trying their best given the Switch's obvious limitations when put beside the other consoles. I am still likely going to buy FIFA, because it seems to be a good portable FIFA, but it's gone from a sure buy to something I am more hesitant about now.

It's a shame because nba2k18 seems to have all the same features and game modes that the non-portable consoles have.

On the moon... they don't make Neo Kobe Pizza.

2k games themselves aren't even perfect on Switch. WWE 2k18 won't have the upgrade to 8 player matches that the other platforms get.

Thank you, I think I will do this after the flies boss kicks my rear end a few more times. Also in case it wasn't clear, that thing about my gf was a joke. I enjoyed seeing Ed Sheeran with her and now I'm enjoying waiting for an Uber with her.

They put out an update for the 3DS Animal Crossing instead. You probably won't be seeing that on Switch until a year or two after the 3DS is officially dead.

i honestly figured that they had something in works for the wii u but decided to push it back to the switch and that's why they had all these high res assets for mario kart and amiibo festival plus an explanation for all these amiibo cards

the update to new leaf felt like part of that stop gap stuff

but i guess they really just had nothing??
