  1. Should We Board The Atari Hype Train?

    You mean Tempest 4000 is not a console mover for you?
  2. Should We Board The Atari Hype Train?

    It doesn't matter if the system is the most impressive thing to ever be called a console. If developers don't embrace the new VCS (seems like everyone forgot that the 2600 was called the VCS before 1982) this will be another failure for the Atari name. I think we need Atari to be successful. We need more competition in the console space to drive innovation. But I really just don't see a reason for developers to jump on board with the VCS and I don't think Atari has the resources to float it on their own like Nintendo can do. Atari also doesn't have the resources to entice developers to bring out games for this system. I may still buy a VCS, but I expect it to fail.

    oh man the hype train is starting to move..... https://www.facebook.com/atariVCS/videos/453958355042086/
  4. No virtual console for switch :(

    The exact quote was: “There are currently no plans to bring classic games together under the Virtual Console banner as has been done on other Nintendo systems.” ... “There are a variety of ways in which classic games from Nintendo and other publishers are made available on Nintendo Switch, such as through Nintendo Entertainment System – Nintendo Switch Online, Nintendo eShop or as packaged collections.” To me this sounds like they may still have retro games, but they won't be under a "Virtual Console" name. Look at what Hamster is doing with Neo Geo games or Nintendo themselves with the "Arcade Archives" series. There is no technical reason that the same can't be done with other console games. By moving away from "Virtual Console" I think they remove some confusion that might exist in the market, and it gives them a leg to stand on for why they want to charge me $20 for Super Mario Bros. yet again rather than the $1 upgrade fee I was charged on the Wii U.
  5. On July 13th Nintendo will release its official Adjustable Charging Stand for $20. Functioning as a travel stand, this will be able to take the place of the kickstand while offering you the ability to charge the Switch as you play. The design is essentially moving the bottom USB-C port into a side port and providing a better kickstand. My only wish is that it also included HDMI out so it could be used as a portable dock. https://www.nintendo.com/switch/buy-now/#adjustable-charging-stand
  6. Such a great game, hopefully moving it to other platforms will inspire more people to check it out on the Switch as well. Konami has done such a great job of updating it, it's a much better game today than it was when it launched. It was a good game at launch, but most of the complaints reviewers had about the game no longer exist in the current version so I think many people who research the game before purchase may not have a true idea of how good this game is. I do like the idea of console exclusive characters, especially if they could get crossplay going on it. I think Nintendo is so protective of Mario that while he's clearly the best choice it's doubtful he would be in this game. Apparently it was a huge deal for him to hold a gun in Mario + Rabbids. With that in mind, I think the two obvious choices would be either Link or Samus.
  7. Should We Board The Atari Hype Train?

    Alright let's get back on this train! It's no longer the Ataribox, it is now the Atari VCS and you can preorder it on May 30th! Allegedly. I won't be holding my breath. We still have no idea what it is, or what it does, but it can be yours for $200 if you pre order it! One thing that stand out to me on it is they say it will output 4k at 60hz... that's better than the Xbox One X. That's right! You read it here first! The Atari VCS is more powerful than the Xbox One X!!!1! Although maybe if it only plays Asteroids, Breakout, Centipede, Gravitar, Missile Command and Yars’ Revenge maybe 4k at 60hz isn't that impressive. https://mashable.com/2018/05/01/atari-vcs-preorder-date/
  8. No More Shells! - dbrand skins are safe now!

    I'm going to be really curious when the reviews start coming in on these. I remember them saying that they and 3M tried hard to find an adhesive that worked without causing damage. As I recall the joycons had an outer coating that would peel off with the skin and on the console itself all the markings would come off as well. At the time they said the switch would not be compatible with an adhesive of any kind. Their decision to pull the Switch skins makes me think that dbrand is a stand up company and wouldn't release a subpar product, but I wonder what has changed. I'm assuming they found an adhesive, but will it stick as well as their other products?
  9. Have Miis Been Forgotten?

    I was messing around on my Switch the other day and went into the Mii editor. I was thinking about how prevalent Miis used to be back on the Wii and Wii U. I really did enjoy the Wii U home screen with all the Miis running toward what game they're playing, and comments from Miiverse popping up. But on the Switch I believe the only place I ever see my Mii is Mario Kart, and I suspect that is only because the game is a Wii U port. Are Miis slowly fading into the annals of history? I'm a bit sad about this. While I didn't enjoy Miis in game so much, I liked them as an avatar and I collected quite a few of them on the Wii. Are there any other games that use Miis on the Switch? Will the Mii Fighters even be relevant enough to make a return in Smash?
  10. Labo Review

    Not free, but you can buy replacement parts https://store.nintendo.com/ng3/browse/subcategory.jsp?categoryId=cat960195 But they did publish PDFs of them so you can cut out your own replacements. https://www.nintendo.co.jp/labo/parts/
  11. Labo Review

    How is the durability of the cardboard? Is it heavier than say your typical Amazon box? One of my concerns about labo is that within a week the cardboard will be broken in some way.
  12. Which game should i get next for the switch?

    Oh man @Shawn Marcy if you got the budget for it, Breath of the Wild (still typically $60)... Odyssey ($48)... These are some top rated must play games. Splatoon 2 is great fun if you can play online and is currently $53 most places (was $50 the other day), $48 through best buy's gamer's club. If you order any of these games from express.google.com there's code SPRING20 that gives you 20% off for first time buyers. If you're not familiar, express.google is sort of like Amazon but you are buying from retailers, like Walmart or Target. Google often offers first time buyers a 20% off coupon code to get people try their service. But that should get you Odyssey for about $38.40 plus tax. Often shipping is free through express.google. And of course Labo just dropped today....
  13. Which game should i get next for the switch?

    What do you have so far? I'm actually facing the same issue. Need to burn some gold coins that are going to expire at the end of the month so looking for a digital download that's affordable, yet fun. I'm thinking maybe Golf Story? I dunno.... I have The Fractured But Whole coming on Monday. Been playing a lot of Lego City Undercover recently. My list so far, in just the order as seen on my homescreen. Lego City Undercover Mario Kart 8 Deluxe NBA Playgrounds Super Mario Odyssey Namco Museum Splatoon 2 ARMS Super Bomberman R Fast RMX Monopoly Pinball FX3 BOTW Puyo Puyo Tetris Overcooked Stern Pinball Arcade Stardew Valley Mario + Rabbids Jackbox Party Pack 3
  14. If you missed Off the Hook performing at Polymagna last month you can catch a replay on YouTube! If you just want to see the Squid Sisters they come on stage at 16:15
  15. Have you ordered a Switch carrying case?

    Same here. Pro controller is the best thing I've bought for my Switch. I would be sad if I went somewhere with my dock and didn't take the pro controller with me.
