I pre-ordered Daemon x Machina on Amazon the day it was made available and just received an email that due to lack of availability my pre-order has been cancelled. I'm guessing there is some sort of supply issue with this game that Amazon was just made aware of?

Amazon is not a good place to order video game stuff. You will never get it day of release.

A quick google search brought me to this article:

Nintendo Enthusiast posted:

Amazon customers report that the company is canceling their Daemon X Machina pre-orders. The online retailer lists ďlack of availabilityĒ as the reason. Of course, that isnít the actual reason since the game isnít even finished, let alone manufactured. The game is slated to release in 2019, but nothing more specific than that.

Hi I'll ask again because the other thread imploded due to being terrible.

How is Wandersong? I watched the trailer for it a few days ago and aside from looking cute I have no idea what the actual moment to moment gameplay is like or what you even do. Is it just walking around while mashing on a singing radial menu and nothing else or what else?

I'm fine with cute games but if there's no satisfying hook then I'll probably just wind up passing it.

From a mechanics standpoint, yeah. The rest of the draw of Twewy was the present day street fashion style that is now hilariously dated and the story.

Basically what im saying is dont spend 60 bucks on a phone port

What if the phone port is one of two games I care about this year

Wait, that was real clothing in-game? I played it on its original DS release, and just assumed everyone was wearing stereotyped JRPG outfits since that's what it looked like.

Untrue, and in my experience its 50/50 a day early breaking street date or 3 days late.

Last game they accidentally sent me 2 copies and charged me twice.(but only showed shipping 1 copy so they refunded me and I had a free second copy of a release game)

Its chaotic. But wont get release date is inaccurate

I have literally never received anything that I ordered from amazon on release date, regardless of when I pre-ordered. gently caress em.

Unlike those they didn't make the art worse in every way and the new controls are a good replacement for non-DS systems.

I don't have a Switch yet, but I've been thinking of getting one for my soon to be 4yo that likes to watch me play games. Should I just pick up some bundle from Costco, or should I wait and hold out for some new yet-to-be-announced bundle or new version coming up?

If you're hoping for Dragon Quest 11 on Switch any time soon, it's still going to take a while. Like to the point where the devs are telling people to just play it on PC and/or PS4 now because it's going to take a long time.

That's not shocking. They can't just uprez the 3DS version but there's no way the Switch can handle the PS4/PC version without compromises. They're probably going to have to rebuild a lot of the art assets for Dragon Quest 11.

There's both a Pokemon and a Smash Switch bundle coming out next month if you're interested in either of those, complete with decorative elements and access to a copy/code for a copy of their game. Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee might not be the purest Pokemon experience, but your four year old can absolutely use the Pokeball controller to 'help' you catch some Pokemon. Otherwise, just grab w/e tickles your fancy.

This happened to me as well. I'm annoyed, it was one of the last prime discounts I was going to take advantage of.

Can't imagine a supply issue exists when the game isn't even done...

I will wait however long it takes for DQ11 on Switch. I am done playing games on anything I can't bring out of the room with me. Also I have barely played games in the last few years so it's all new to me. More ports for Switch!!

VV EDIT: Hell yeah. Or if I'm already watching something on TV or hell using my PS4 for the Netflix machine that it is now, I can just pick up my Switch and start playing something immediately. It's so good.

EDIT2: like I literally pick it up, tap a button, hit A 3 three times and I'm already playing Zelda cause it's still open from last night. Takes like five seconds to start gaming.

By the time my PS4 loads Monster Hunter I am a different man than I was when I turned it on.

Hey new switch thread, I have a question.

In preparation for smash ultimate, I wanted to get a switch LAN adapter. Is this like, actually necessary? Also, does any brand work or do I need a Nintendo licensed adapter?

Any will work, USB 3.0 is a safer bet. Just get the cheap UGREEN one that pops up on Amazon.
I got the one by Bionik because it's designed for the Switch so it's hidden in the dock.
