    • A gamer called Luis Fernando Mendoza Arias has apparently got his hands on a copy of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate two weeks before its official release date.

      To back up his claims, Luis took photos of the game running on Nintendo Switch, as well as his physical copy, and uploaded it all to social media. The photos seem legit but you will probably want to take a look at it yourself to verify its authenticity:




      We’d also like to take this opportunity to remind all users to be very careful for spoilers since the game has leaked.

      What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

    • I know, I know, It's really popular right now to shit all over Nintendo's new online program. But that's not what I'm here for. In fact, I think it's pretty good. I'm here to set the record straight.

      Nintendo Switch Online is only $20 USD for an individual membership, and way less if you split the cost of a family membership. For a third of the price of its competitors (at the most), I don't really care what else NS Online has to offer. I can play my games online, and I can do it for cheaper than PS4 or XB1 users can.

      It gave us designated servers for MK Deluxe and, later on, Smash Bros, and while, for some reason, Splatoon 2 didn't, I never really noticed connection issues while playing. Peer-to-peer isn't really bad at all, unless your friends have really bad connections. And most of the third party games we play don't have designated servers anyways.

      You also get a pretty cool ever - expanding library of NES games, which is an added bonus. Now, I get that this is a shitty replacement for virtual console, and that many people have bought these games many times and might not want to buy them again, the library comes at no additional cost with an online service that is already affordable.

      Some people seem to think that charging customers for online is a crummy thing to do, but these companies want to make money. It sucks, but when you have an additional service for a product, it's a bad business strategy not to charge.

      The only legitimate problem I have with NS Online is the voice chat. Only Fortnite supports it without the use of your phone, and even then you need a wired mic. For me, this is a big let-down because I think it's something that can easily be fixed. All Nintendo have to do is release a wired-to-Bluetooth audio port adapter, which I've found on Amazon for $16, and release a software update. If you're someone who really wants voice chat to communicate with teammates, the price is more than justifiable. Using your phone is really clunky and definitely not an option.

      That being said, as the title of this topic indicates, I really do believe you get what you pay for. When you're paying $2-20 a year for online, I can move past these things. I think the real reason we're all complaining is the Osborne effect. I think Nintendo advertised the fact that we would have to pay for online service way too early. I was ready to pay for this a year ago. I was ready to pay for this in January. But the truth is, we all got comfortable with playing online for free and how well it worked. We all took it for granted as something that shouldn't be monetized and when the time came to pony up, it took us by surprise. 

      I'm really interested in knowing what the general consensus is with this, who bought it and who won't. Feel free to leave us your opinions, and who knows? Maybe this'll help some people that are on the fence to go either way.

    • Sony announced its Playstation Classic today and somewhat surprisingly I have been reading some threads of people who are not at all excited by this. Now, I am a Playstation man, through and through, so my opinion may be somewhat biased, but overall I really like the idea of the retro mini console and having it stocked with games. Older consoles, controllers, and especially game carts and discs become worn and useless as time goes on. Experiencing older games on a crisp new screen with responsive brand new controllers sounds great to most of us, but to many it will never live up to the original experience of untangling the controller cords, blowing the dust from your cartridge and switching the TV input over to RGB. I totally see both sides of the argument and I think that these retro consoles are not for everyone. I had serious plans to purchase the SNES Classic but never got around to it and now it seems as though many of those games I would've bought it for will end up on the Switch at some point anyways. Even the PS Classic is kind of lost on me now considering Final Fantasy 7, 8, 9, 10, 10-2, and 12 will all be out on the Switch soon. So what do you all think?

    • Hello fellow Radarians! It has been a while since I have posted anything new so I figured.... I would do exactly that! This post concerns my newest obsession: Hollow Knight. Man, oh man. What a game this is! I am a major metroidvania fan, so games like Axiom Verge and Owlboy already appeal to me, and Hollow Knight is no different. There isn't a ton to mention as far as what makes this game special to me or stand out in a major way, but it is special and it does stand out. I like everything about this game. The art style is simple and unique. The gameplay is very simple and easy to handle, however, the enemies and bosses are anything but. This game challenges me in the same way I am challenged by a Dark Souls title. You fight, you die. You fight again, you die again. You try and level up, return to fight, die again. It's really a smashing good time. Something about the lore of the story has me drawn in as well. This underground kingdom of bugs, that has this tragic and mysterious past, is tons of fun to explore and master, searching every nook and cranny for new things. The other bugs you meet all have distinct and engaging personalities and voice acting, although they are speaking "bugish" and we cannot understand them without reading the text on screen, that somehow just fits perfectly and sounds right 100% of the time. My favorite bug voice is of the cartographers wife, Iselda, and her bored sounding sigh of "bafanada..." This game is hard as hell and super engaging. I highly recommend it for its playability and the way it translates from big screen to handheld. Some metroidvania games are best viewed on a smaller screen(Axiom Verge is a great example of this; on my 66" screen the game looks silly), but that does not apply to Hollow Knight. I love the way it looks on my TV and it is perfect and cozy in handheld mode. I bought this game while it was on sale for around $8 and I had a few hundred points, too. It cost me maybe $5 in the end and I have enjoyed it far more than Octopath Traveler(which I was SUPER excited for) that I paid $59.99 for.

    • So now that Smash Ultimate has been announced and EVERY SINGLE Smash fighter ever (and some extras) are a part of the roster, I'm curious to find out who everyone's main might be.

      Personally, I'm excited to try out Little Mac now that air dodges improve recovery. I hope that might help to balance out his attacks without occasionally falling off the map with no control whatsoever. I also want to try out the Ice Climbers and how their two-in-one combo fares against some of the newer fighters.

Possible Switch Bundle Leaked

Recommended Posts

The official Nintendo Russian website leaked the above image earlier today and then it was quickly removed. Is this the first possible Switch bundle?

Finally, a bundle! And this is going to be my choosen one; my last Mario Kart was the one from the 64 ;(

 

That would definitely boost sales but only if neon colours were there too.

I bet there's another version of this bundle with them as well!

This is literally perfect as this would be the first game I'd get anyway. I agree with Fiscus though and would prefer the Neon Switch.

I would buy the crap out of that bundle. The Mario kart 8 deluxe looks amazing! The colors, the modes, the characters! I just about had a mini heart attack seeing a Zelda themed race track in there. Sign me the eff up please.

Very nice, I don't see the point in bundle myself considering I have the system now. All it is is the console with a game thrown in. Will make a Switch purchase all that more sweeter though for people who don't already have one

What is the price of the Switch-only package in Russia? It would be interesting to see a comparative.

About $400.21, per that website. I don't know how their tax system works so I'm not sure if out the door cost is higher than that.

Meh, I've almost never bought a console with a bundle as the games they bundle don't really interest me. This one doesn't either. I consider Mario Kart a party game, and nothing beyond that. Since I'm past my partying days, it's a giant load of 'meh.'

Good

I absolutely hated that 1-2 switch wasn't bundled at launch

Yeah. I always thought that was a huge missed opportunity.

It's not really the $50 (or how many $ it is) game that you would go out of your way to purchase. Wii Sports is a prime example, you played it because it came with the console (and it was fun) BUT if its aim is to show off what the console/ controllers can do, again, like Wii Sports, include it .

Some people wanted to buy bundles with the Switch so I think this'll definitely work out for Nintendo.

Even a little bit of the console and game price is still something off the price

This is awesome! A fall or Christmas bundle would be very welcomed to consumers. Its also a way to keep the momentum going after their E3 presentation. But fingers crossed...

That bundle looks sweet, but I would rather have a Breath of the Wild (or at least Zelda) themed Switch bundle honestly. It would be also cool if the console, dock, and joycons had some special decals like the Wind Waker Wii U gamepad but even better.
