    • 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.

How many Zelda games have you beaten?

Recommended Posts

Apart from BotW, which I am stretching out as far as possible, I have beaten all of the console games (I haven’t played the portable ones except Minish Cap).

Zelda II, I feel, was my best achievement. I did it with minimal Internet searches.

OG Zelda and Zelda II. And sigh...reading that people beat Zelda II with minimal Internet searches makes me feel old. I beat Zelda II before there was an Internet :P

Don’t feel old; I played Zelda II long before the Internet (at launch), but I didn’t care for it. About ten years ago, I played it again and beat it.

 

 

Edit: By the way, if you are saying that you beat it without help, that is seriously impressive.

While I agree, I feel it is important to note that (at least where I grew up) no game was completed entirely without help. Even in the days before Nintendo Power, there was always word of mouth. Whether it was the pattern for getting through the original Lost Woods or watching for Tyson to blink before he punches, information was always shared. Games like Zelda 2 were designed with this information interchange in mind.

I’m not sure if I have mentioned this before on NR, but this seems like the right thread. As I alluded to above, the only Zelda game I have played that I didn’t beat was Minish Cap.

I bought a Japanese copy of it, and I was able to get through the entire game without understanding the dialogue. The whole game that is... until the final boss. I just couldn’t figure out what I was supposed to do.

 

btw, this is not a plea for spoilers; I am just venting my frustration. I do want to get the English version one day and try again.

Only Legend of Zelda, Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time. Others I have played but never actually defeated.

I could not do the original without internet assistance of needing directions. I may have needed a promting or two with the others as well though come to think of it.

the four swords

Ocarina of time

And 1 other I forgot

 

And I only played these four Zelda gamesI'm awesome

 

But I needed internet help for all

 

I think that minish cap was the HARDEST You would have to shrink and expand to solve puzzles

 

When you are small you cannot go through grass!!!! Which is irritating but u can talk to animals

 

When you are big you cannot go through small holes or talk to animals but can TALK TO HUMANS

 

Making it tHe HARDEST ZELDA GAME

I’m jealous. I’m beginning to think I will never get the chance to beat that game. I just bought a 2DS, and I was excited about getting it again, but it’s not available on that system after all... it’s not available on any of the systems I currently own.

Oh well, at least I’ll get to play A Link between Worlds and Link’s Awakening.

Honestly I've only been through Ocarina of time, Majoras Mask and Breath of the Wild. Hoping that the virtual console will bring at least wind waker to the switch so I can play through that.

I’m hoping for WW as well. I’ve never played the HD version, and my daughter hasn’t had the chance to try it at all.
