    Went to Frys the other day and saw Axiom Verge at $50 but thought it might have been too much especially for the kind of game it is but it looked really sweet. I almost bought it but remember there's still games I need to beat first. And that Blossom Tales is totally a Lttp rip off but still like seeing this type of game.
    Insert funny sig here.

    Ish bullshit! I need to just move to Japan. Need to learn the language first, though...meh, I'll just stay here.

    That is pretty sweet though. Wish the US would get similar, but I should know by now to temper my expectations.

    Thatís what I was thinking seemed high for a retailer? Limited edition is only 32 when you buy from amazon before release and GCU too but worse case should be 39.99 everywhere else. Iím enjoying picking up the indie games in cartridge format a lot too. I just grabbed Tiny Barbarian for 20 bucks off amazon. Great game in co-op mode, me and my daughter just beat the first chapter together. Itís really honing her 2d platforming skills playing something that requires precise jumping to stay alive.

    I wasn't in any big need of getting it since I still need to pass the few games I have first. Just haven't been playing as much since I was busier than normal.

    Axiom Verge is great and on par with 2D Metroids.

    Do you guys think Nintendo will release a non-portable version of the Switch at some point?

    he spends hundreds on scarves, of course he's a fag and then ChuChu Flamingo preserved the aftermath in a plastic case making sure it wasn't exposed to unstable air
    You're just upset that you're too goddam stupid to understand the games and whiff infinites.

    Anyone get Raijin? It looks kind of cool but $38 is pretty steep for a title with zero marketing info anywhere.

    My wife got me a Switch for X-mas, set it up and messed around with it for a little bit last night. I downloaded Metal Slug X, and I'm disappointed in the conversion.
    There's lots of slowdown, the menus are clunky with bad "engrish", and the video options are sorely lacking. The game looks very blurry whether it's on a TV or in handheld mode.

    Are all of ACA's Neo games on the Switch like this?

    I just started playing Odyssey this morning, and it’s simply awesome.
    The hours just whizzed by, and I was completely consumed in playing. It’s been years since a game has captivated me like this. For what is basically a collect-a-thon, the gameplay and level design between all the collecting is so fun and engaging.
    I have not felt like this about a Nintendo-made game for years, and after years of making hardware that was just ok, I actually feel impressed by the Switch itself as a system/platform.

    Well, beat the new DLC for Breath of the Wild already. It is worth the money in my opinion, even though I blew through it in one night.

    I haven't gone to find all the extra sets of armor. Also haven't completed the Master Sword quest (gets quite challenging), but I did the quest line for the Champions. Took probably a good 6-8 hours at least? I lost track as I was at work and ended up staying up til about 4am to finish it.

    Do have Xenoblade Chronicles 2 as well, but haven't started into that yet.

    Started -RXN- Raijin. It's pretty solid, but the price is a little high. If it was $20 it would be a no-brainer, but at $38 it's a tough recommendation.

    Is the switch region free? I'd assume it was but, its Nintendo so i'm not suprised if it isnt as they make the dumbest choices possible.

    Also is is just me or is anyone else not impressed with the switches docked mode?

    I've got a wii u and almost everything first party on the wii u is 1080p 60fps and looks clean and buttery smooth my high end 4k tv. However the switch on the other hand looks like hot mess. Xenoblade 2 looks like straight shit in any mode i've played it. The only thing it looks good on is a widescreen crt and even then its clearly a very sub hd game with poor textures. Even mario oddessey looks to be runing at 720p and has a very soft junky picture quality. Its really just unimpressive how nothing is aiming for 1080p docked. I rather them cut down on other graphic features and get me that picture clarity than some higher draw distances and more shinny objects.

    Nope don't agree.

    And the Switch is region free both physical and digital (though you'll need to match another region account on your system.) I've got one Japanese release because it also had english on there too (I Am Setsuna.)

    Looking for the above stuff, Neo-Geo MVS, Dreamcast, and Gameboy(any) too.

    Yeah Iím playing Mario kart on wiiu and switch and I definitely donít feel like the switch has any issues or puts out an inferior picture to the wiiu. Iím only running 1080p 65 inch viera plasma so canít compare to a 4K tv but judging from that guys experience maybe his 4K tv us trying to upscale or something and thatís diminishing the quality?

    They knocked the quality up a notch on the Switch vs WiiU too. 1080p/720p vs the older 720p/480p on WiiU, updated some menus, tweaked some animations/graphics for the better supposedly too. That's just graphics not getting into all the other updates. This little piece before the game popped up has some side by side comparisons with pictures and stuff maybe worth a quick peek: https://www.oneangrygamer.net/2017/0...parison/29048/

    If he's on 4K it is a possibility the problem is there.

    Yeah i'm on 4k Sony x930c. I just find it odd that xbox one s, ps4, wii u all look good but something is going on with just the switch that makes the games look super out of focus and jaggy. To be fair all I've got is Odyssey and Xenoblade 2. And xenoblade 2 apparently just looks like shit no matter what you do. The game runs in 360p in portable mode half the time and even in docked is running sub 720p the vast majority of the time. Xenoblade Chronicles X on the switch looks vastly better.

    That wouldn't surprise me it's a big bloated game that was at first looking to come out this year, but then quickly got its date rushed and bumped into the end of last year for holiday sales. I'm sure that probably had a little into it, yet probably not too much. 360p in handheld is unforgivable and likely optimized could have done nicer with time, time they had cut short.
