Anyway ya'll are bitching about motion controls but what if in BOTW you could make Link climb faster by shaking the controller. Ever think about that.

it would still be extremely awkward to do while playing handheld (aka. the proper way)

I still can't get over how sloppily these huge companies are programming stuff. What the hell. I'd have to specifically go way out of my way to make a wrestling game's save be 5 gigabytes

It's easy. Full roster of CAWs, each with loads of custom uploaded images for face, tattoos, logos. Then run them all through the various game modes where they have tracked W/L records, title wins, rivalries, friendships, their standings with The Authority.

It really has. Could the Wii U have been saved with better marketing? It simply confused too many people, and the launch wasnít anything special. Iím glad I owned one for sure, and miss the eshop music (but not the load times for OS stuff).

The Wii U's main controller cost as much as the console itself and made porting games a chore unless the developer ignored said controller's gimmick. The Wii U was pretty hosed regardless of marketing.

Nintendo probably would not have arrived at the Switch concept without the Wii U as an iteration along the way. The Switch is basically the result of them taking the Wii U and going "poo poo, this would work better if the guts of the system were in the Gamepad".

Imo the Wii U was still cool and had good games. Switch is better but I don't think of the Wii U as much of a down

Nah I loved it, it was just palpable how not-popular it was for the entire duration of its run. Seeing switch consistently outsell PS/Xbox (and get lots of third party support year one) is weird as gently caress to me

I honestly think the Wii U has an incredibly good library of games, but its undeniable that it didn't sell well. Its ultimately a good thing that Nintendo has dropped it and hopefully they will port more Wii U games onto the switch or give them proper sequels.

The only games I really want ported are XcX, Smash (which will happen at some point) and Captain Toad. Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2 as well probably.

I want them to port DKC Tropical Freeze but mainly just because it bothers me how many people missed out on it

Yoshi's Woolly World, DKC Tropical Freeze and Captain Toad all deserve a bit more love. be good to get some ports of 'em. bizarrely I played more Game + Wario on the Wii U than anything else - it was the go-to for drunk social party times, playing stupid Pictionary and Fronks till the small hours

(on the WarioWare franchise: i really think WarioWare DIY was underrated thanks to bad online systems at the time. i think if you were to combine Mario Maker's online structure with WarioWare, then release it to take advantage of Switch multiplayer, you would have the best drunk party game of all time.)

I've only just updated Odyssey as I've had some downtime in Japan and after the 1.0.1 update, every time I start Odyssey now my fan spins up yo 100% unless I put the unit into sleep and back. Even then it only works like 50% of the time.

What makes it even more surreal is when you realize wtf, I'm an Italian plumber with an animatronic hat crashing a giant turtle's wedding on the moon and it doesn't really stop there.

My roommate has been playing Odyssey on my Switch for twelve motherfucking hours straight today and she's made it to New Donk City in one sitting. Nah it's cool I didn't want to play today or nothin

Hey stupid question, Amazon appears to have Axiom Verge as a physical cart on Switch being released mid-November. I thought it was a digital-only release on Switch, is it going to be one of those Switch indie games that's getting a boxed release for some reason?

Sharing games with people is cool. I'm glad they are getting to experience something they might no have tried on their own

I'm not in the business of comparing two extremely different games to find which one is "better", but BotW impresses me more because it took a franchise that was really limping along and revitalized it. 3D World might not have been that great but Mario has never really fallen to the low point Zelda was at.
