is it in airplane mode?

It is not. The Switch finally detected the network on its own, so I go to connect to it and enter the password, and after several seconds of it trying to connect, I get the "can't connect" error. So...some progress at least.

EDIT: Aaaaand it started to work. I don't even know anymore.

In relating the circumstances which have led to my confinement within this refuge for the demented, I am aware that my present position will create a natural doubt of the authenticity of my narrative.

It's not about having it as soon as possible obviously, or we would get it on the eshop. It's about saving 20%, but then them missing "guaranteed release delivery" on the biggest titles of the year when they could have just shipped it a day earlier or prioritize online pre-orders over treasure trucks.

I was just joking around because it's such a first world problem. Even if they shipped on time people would still have problems with a litany of other shipping related issues that cause delays.

If they donít meet their release day promise you get a free month of prime and a $10 credit. I hope my delivery IS a day late.

hm I got botw pretty recently so it puts me at a place where I'll be comparing SMO to botw in a semi less biased way as I haven't had to wait so long between playing the two

I'm kinda feeling that I'm going to end up enjoying botw more overall, it's so drat good. I'm sure mario will be great but gameplay and impressions videos do give me a sense of "zelda is still cooler," if that makes any sense at all

I'm basing it off of my enjoyment of the game not some collective opinion though

I love medieval swords n shields settings (see: dark souls) and roaming around, scoping out new locales irl and in video games. That plus the need to constantly forage and adapt makes it my favorite zelda ever.

It's looking like my Amazon order will arrive on time tomorrow afternoon. They delayed my Switch on launch so I complained that this stuff has happened multiple times so they 'contacted their facilities' to expedite my future orders, so I'm probably on some Amazon shitlist.

I think Amazon breaks and ships late on Nintendo stuff because they know people will just blame Nintendo due to their reputation.

The Zelda franchise is overrated but botw is one of the greatest games of all time (and this is coming from a guy who literally hadn't enjoyed a 3d Zelda game ever before botw)

Wait. What the heck happened to the first duck?


Super Mario Odyssey report: itís good (duh). Iíve fought four bosses so far, none of which I would call hard, but they were all fun.

Thereís a LOT to find and do. A guide may be needed to 100% the game, but in the two worlds Iíve visited so far I havenít had any trouble gathering enough moons to progress to the next world. There are tons of little secrets and Easter eggs and hidden bits, keep your eyes peeled.

Moon-gathering activities range across the board and are of varying difficulty. Lots of hidden ones, too. If something looks ďwrongĒ, chances are thereís a moon hidden nearby.

I already know Iím not going to be able to 100% this game because thereís at least one moon locked behind a new twist on a series mainstay that Iíve always been garbage at and donít have the time or patience to spend an hour trying to get it. Oh well.

Would I rather have a traditional platformer Mario game like Super Mario 3D Land/World? Ultimately, yes. Iím not the biggest fan of the 3D Mario collectathons, never have been. That said, thereís already so much variety to SMO that itís leaps and bounds above SM64 and Sunshine for me.

[Edit: is there seriously not a thread for SMO yet? Someone needs to make one, thereís gonna be a ton of people wanting to talk about moon locations and the cool poo poo theyíve found]

I kinda spoiled myself with BOTW by watching too many videos.

All I've seen of Mario is the first trailer.
Amazon has already put it on a truck.

I don't get all the Amazon hate. You save $12 with Prime, and then if they miss release date shipping you get a CSR to give you a $10 credit or something.

I kind of hope my game is late... give me that $38 new release game instead of $60.
