  3. Which handheld is better?

    The Switch has obviously been a success, selling 3,407,158 consoles at the end of 2017, while the Wii U has sold 3,301,555 in its lifetime. The Nintendo switch will cost you $300 dollars while the 3ds XL costs $200. Or, if you want a cheaper option, you can get the 2ds XL, which costs $150 While this hot console can be handheld, can you really say that it can replace the 3ds? Nintendo claims that the Nintendo Switch will be alongside the 3ds family, but will people stop buying from the 3ds family because the Switch has more processing power and better graphics? Only time can answer these questions, but which handheld console would YOU buy if you didn't have any of them? I'm eager to hear your opinions!
  4. Ok, Nintendo made this little cardboard array called the Nintendo Labo. You put your Nintendo Switch in one of the cardboard gadgets and then you get a piano/bloodthirsty robot/fishing pole thingamajig. What major titles would the Nintendo Labo effect, and does it make the gameplay entirely different? Also, what are your general thoughts on this thing? Here's a video of the Nintendo Labo.
  5. A little gem added to the Switch console for about 30$. https://www.destructoid.com/wild-guns-reloaded-will-open-fire-on-nintendo-switch-in-april-492115.phtml
  6. I myself am not that bothered about it because the Xbox and PS4 have it but some people may feel differently. I also think of the switch as more as a at home multiplayer console so this is where mostly my indifference comes from too. What are your guys opinions on it? Paid online will be coming some time around September 2018. https://strawpoll.com/3p1b8frs
  7.

  9. I have delayed this review for way too long. You see, I wanted to write a review on Stardew Valley, but every time I thought of things I could write, I felt the need to play this game. So here it is at last, ladies and gentlemen. A review of Stardew Valley. Let me clear up a misconception about this game. This is not just a farming simulator. If you were to only farm, you wouldn't be wrong. However, there's much more to see. The main "activity groups" are farming, foraging, fishing, and mining. There are other things to do as well, but I'll start here. Farming is the moneymaking option that is the most accessible at the start of the game. That being said, farming isn't your only option early on. The idea is, you buy seeds from your town's local general store, plant them, water them every day, and harvest them once they've fully grown. The crops available vary from season to season, and you can get better crops every year. you can buy accessories like scarecrows, sprinklers and seed makers to make your life easier, but they're not mandatory. In the beginning, you'll find that farming is a decent source of income and leaves you with plenty of spare time. As the game progresses, however, you'll find that watering your plants takes up more and more of your valuable time, to the point where you can't even water them all in one day. This is where tool upgrades come in. You can upgrade your watering can, so you can water more tiles with less stamina and all at once, upgrade your hoe to do the same, or build better sprinklers to make sure more crops don't have to be watered. If you decide to get married to one of the game's NPCs, they might occasionally water all of your crops before you even wake up. Buying crops isn't always simple, however. There's a travelling merchant in the game who might sell you special and profitable seeds at a steep price, or festivals where you might be able to buy the best ones. You shouldn't just buy the cheapest ones because they will give you quick money. Seasons don't last forever, and you want to make each day as profitable as possible, so you don't lose any money. Then there are the animals, which I find to be a very interesting mechanic. The idea is, you buy a coop or a barn to house chickens or cows and then upgrade your buildings to house a wider variety of animals such as ducks, rabbits, goats and more. This requires minimal effort, as you only have to put hay on the animals' troughs and let them outside when it's not raining. In return, you get different animal products which can be sold or turned into artisanal goods for more profit. This will most likely be your main source of income in the winter around your second in-game year because crops won't grow and you only need a heater or two. And that's pretty much the farming aspect of this game. The other things to do aren't as complicated, and it's clear that they weren't made to be your main focus. That being said, you can make just as much money as you would farming if you focused on any one of these other groups, and they're all available since day one. Fishing is pretty easy. All you have to do is purchase a fishing rod from your local fishing shop and cast your rod in the water. There are different fish to catch depending on where you fish, and you can buy bait and tackle to be used with better fishing rods. I focused only on fishing during my first winter, since I couldn't farm, and I was rolling in a decent profit every day towards the end of that season. It can be a bit slow and it's easy to get bored of just the same mini-game over and over again. I would say this is a good idea for a game like Stardew, but It was just a bit lacking, and you always seem to catch the same fish. Mining is a bit harder. Just like fishing, you can start this at any time. You go in a weird looking hole in the mountains, and down the ladder. You'll find "slime" enemies and break rocks with your pickaxe, trying to uncover the next ladder. If you go down far enough, you can find minerals like copper or iron, which you can use to build new things for your farm or upgrade your tools. It works well enough, and I assume that once you go deep enough in the mines you could start to turn a profit, but it takes too long. It's discouraging when I only need an earth crystal or a copper bar to build my mayonnaise machine and I have to go all the way back to the mines and spend a good thirty minutes finding that one rock. It feels like mining is a pointless sidequest that I need to complete to build my tools, and I usually just end up buying the ores from the blacksmith. Foraging is simple. You walk around and collect the things you find on the ground. You'll find different things in different seasons. It's not very useful, but it's a great way to find gifts for the townsfolk. That's all I have to say about it. To answer @Buzz's question, there is an end goal in this game. Very early on, the town's mayor shows you the community centre. It's a run-down building that the town has abandoned. By speaking to the valley's resident wizard after reading a scroll, you gain access to various "bundles" that you can complete by sacrificing some of the items that you've collected. These bundles range from spring foraging to an adventuring bundle. You have to play at least two in-game years to complete it, so you've pretty much beaten the game if you finish it. You get some cool "post-game" content and a nice cutscene. There's also a surprise at the end of year 2, which I won't spoil, that is impacted greatly by the community centre's completion. Overall, I like Stardew Valley a ton. It does a lot of things right that make the game seem just perfect. It makes this game feel truly open-ended and like it's yours. My one complaint is that, when you don't really know what to do, it might get overwhelming, even though some of the gameplay isn't up to par with the rest (although that might just be because farming sets the bar pretty high). For someone like myself who enjoy "life simulation" games, this is a must-have. If you're not really sure, give it a chance. It might just surprise you. But hey, I left a poll so you can read what others think about this amazing game. You're welcome. I rate Stardew Valley four and a half duck eggs out of 5. Live long and prosper, Fiscus OUT.

  11. Breath Of The Wild

    Anybody else only have to find Korok Seeds for Breath Of The Wild? Lmao which I recently found out is actually poop? Anyone else find that out? Or did I just read dumb articles?
  12. A new Nintendo event has been scheduled for this evening/tonight. “Tune in to discover a new interactive experience for Nintendo Switch that’s specifically crafted for kids and those who are kids at heart.” Not exactly the quote I was hoping for, but let’s stay optimistic.
  13. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2K0dHQ8P8M Possible Switch Version 5.0 Is it real? What do you think?
  14. NBA Playgrounds has relaunched on Nintendo Switch as a $9.99 Enhanced Edition (on sale for 50% off until until January 18th, then the price returns to normal). This new version replaces the original May release and it finally brings Challenge Mode, the game's online mode which has been available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC all this time, to Switch. Developer Saber Interactive promised to patch in online play but has opted to release a new version of the arcade basketball game instead. You can download it now via the Switch eShop, and is free for those who purchased the original game. Not only does Enhanced Edition include online play, it also features all of the game's post-launch content as well some new additions, like a revamped rebounding system and a hundred new players. This new edition of NBA Playgrounds is a standalone title separate from the original version of the game and must be downloaded independently through the Nintendo eShop (the upgraded edition can be identified by a golden frame around the game’s icon in the eShop). Players can safely delete the old version of NBA Playgrounds after downloading this upgraded edition but should be careful not to delete their existing game saves, which will be automatically converted and playable in the upgraded version of the title after installing. Back in June, Saber also promised to offer Switch owners who had already purchased the original NBA Playgrounds a free copy of . The developer has reassured fans they will still receive their free copies.
  15. Morning guys (from UK), hope you're doing well! We all have game franchises that we follow closely; some Nintendo based, some not. I was just thinking about which games I'd like to be ported to the Switch, so I thought I'd ask you guys! Which game would you most like to see on the Switch? I'd personally love to see some old Crash or Spyro games on the switch (Like when they used to be on GC). Nintendo specifics, now Odyssey has just come out, maybe we could have a Super Mario Sunshine remaster? What do you guys think?
  16. Sad days indeed for those of you holding out for a PS Vita 2 as Sony remains adamant they have no plans to jump back into the handheld market. When asked about a potential Switch competitor, that line of discussion was swiftly shut down by Sony CEO Andrew House. House said It's odd that Sony have adopted such a stance as it was recently revealed they had already filed patents for a Vita successor: Sony launched the Vita in 2012 off the back of its older more successful brother the PSP which over its lifetime sold 84 million units, but sadly the Vita just couldn't compete selling a poor 10 million units down to Sonys lack of support, poor third party and multiplayer offerings and funky weird control scheme all of which contributed to its demise whereas it’s competitor the 3DS went on to sell 69million units. Some would argue that the Vita laid the groundwork for the Switch by wetting the appetite of gamers who wanted to experience home-console like games on the go. And while the Vita may not have been a success, that’s not to say they couldn’t be successful in the future. Just look at the Switch; it’s off to a great start selling over 7 million units thus far and had there not been any availability issues that number may have been even higher and going into the holiday season the Switch is looking to be a hot ticket item with an impressive games lineup and a sweet price tag so we can see it being under many a Christmas tree this year! Would you like to see a PS Vita 2? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
  17. Take Two the publisher of GTA and the NBA 2K series made a point of commenting on how well NBA 2K18 has done on the Switch! During their quarterly earnings the company made it clear they are 'very pleased with the title's performance on this new platform". Their CEO Strauss Zelnick also commented about how optimistic he is saying "The installed base for Switch has grown rapidly and it’s potentially an exciting platform,” “We’ve already put out a title for basketball. So, we are supportive of the platform corporately." In addition to NBA 2K18, Take Two will be releasing Rockstars LA Noire later this month on November 14th and with any luck we may see more from Take Two in the near future! What games from Take Two and Rockstar would you like to see make it to the Switch? Let us know in the comments!

  19. I've been wanting the Nintendo Switch for a while, and I've heard lots of things about it. I've heard about bugs, games, and the overall quality of the system. So I just wanted to ask; what do you guys think?
  20. Switch 2 player?

    My son says that some of the switch games you have to use both joy cons for one person, and that you would have to have a second console to get the joy cons to play 2 player. Surely this is not the case. I have seen some of the 2 player games preview each player holding one. If you have to have more can you buy them separately?
  21. Wondering people's opinions on whether they're planning on getting Fire Emblem Warriors on Switch or 3DS. I've only ever played Awakening, Fates and Echoes- so I don't actually know what it's like in a bigger format. What does anyone think is going to be better?
  22. We have been looking forward toon getting a switch for my son, but when they first come out we heard that there were a lot of glitches withthe systems. Have those issues been fixed? Are people still having problems with them?
