My theory is that the Switch Pro will be announced at the Keighleycast tonight. Seems like the kind of announcement Geoff would snaffle up.

Thanks, I forgot that was happening tonight! I've been so busy the past few weeks, I even forgot about E3. But maybe that's more E3's fault, lately...

It varies from game to game. The big AAA releases are 9pm pacific time the night before their officially stated release date.

A friend of mine's new puppy decided to chew up all of her Switch jewel cases while the games were inside, but the games were spared. Cart taste working as intended.

drat, now I'm hyped af!!! if this isn't a sign that the switch pro is coming then I clearly lack basic comprehension/analytical skills and should probably check out of this conversation maybe enroll in some sort of adult education course or something

I look forward to the experience that I get from any piece of software that lets me build a game. Specifically, going through some of the tutorials, and ultimately realising I'm too lazy to commit to it for long enough to make anything worthwhile of my own. But if I have some dumb fun on the way, it'll have been worth the pre-order.

Been playing far too much Stardew Valley, but I've always loved this game. The experience is made 1000x better now that I'm playing it with my SNES controller, it's perfect for it.

I'd lose access to the Codex if I tried the SNES controller in Hades, but I can't help to think I'd also adore it there too.

I'm interested in the game making game but I dunno if I can stand making anything serious with a controller.

Also how are they handling distributing creations? Is there going to be an online game-finding mechanism like mario maker?

Watched the NintendoLife review of Game Builder Garage and nooope, that level (elementary) of commitment to learning how ďcodeĒ is definitely not in my wheelhouse.

Sharing creation codes only apparently, no online browsing through creations.

You get a creation code for anything you make and getting other people to see your code and try it is up to you. They probably want it more private than say Mario maker because there's more potential for child unfriendly content.

It does have compatibility with USB Mouse/Keyboard

This seems promising. Maybe I could just undock the switch and prop it up at my work station. Sounds kind of fun in a quaint way.

Scholars are some of the most pompous and pedantic people I've ever had the joy of meeting.

Has anyone played Mercenaries Blaze: Dawn of the Twin Dragons and if so, how is it? I picked up Mercenary Saga Chronicles awhile back and it was alright, basically a very simplistic Tactics Ogre-inspired strategy game. I'm curious if Blaze is an improvement.

Is there any point in Pokemon Sword showing locked+seeking Max Raid Battles besides annoy you? Like am I missing a secret way to join these?

You need their code to join anyway, so why is it even showing up for me, a stranger, when I need to know the person to begin with? I'm crazy but I'm not missing a step here am I?

Nope, it's a stupid design decision, just like most of the online system. Not having proper queues, and 90% of the online raids not existing by the time you set to them is super annoying.

because for some incredibly asinine reason, they decided that multiplayer between friends should use the exact same interface as multiplayer between complete randoms, and that wading through a sea of randoms to try and find your friends was good game design

JUST PICK ONE. ANY ONE.

It's so people who don't have online play can see it and think "wow, that looks really fun, I'll go buy online". Is it great at doing that? Probably not. But that's why.

Wow luckily it was my first Pokemon game and I somehow blasted through 40 hours mostly playing solo. I was trying to add some extra hours doing some multiplayer for fun, but yeah this is way more annoying than I thought.

Oh well, still money well spent. Nintendo online at it's usual.

Just curious, never seen this before: why does Super Bomberman R Online have a "states and territories of the United States" field on the first launch language setup with the options "California" and "Other"? Does it contain text that somehow violates one of those regulations specific to California like all those carcinogen warnings they require? e: maybe something in the EULA or privacy policy everyone else just puts inline?

I gave up like 5 minutes into the game or whenever you got the horse and you had to navigate your vision separate to the horses or something, kept running into walls, and realized I had better use of my time.
