    What games do you want to see on the Switch?

    Are we talking about Nintendo-owned? Because those games will come out regardless. It's only a matter of time before we see a Kirby and a Metroid game (I truly believe we'll get a Metroid game within the next two years). However, I'm extremely concerned that we aren't seeing releases of the...

    Is Nintendo Making a Mistake by Releasing Fire Emblem Warriors on Switch and 3DS?

    I'm not actually sure what this post has to do with what I wrote. Not trying to be rude, just not understanding why you're quoting me. What you say about there being only one gaming division is all fine and good, but the fact is that there are still two separate platforms—the Wii U (as of...

    Wii U version or Switch version

    @Scribear I hear ya man. If I had more time, I'd drop the money for the Switch and Zelda. But I can't justify the purchase right now. Not for one game.

    Wii U version or Switch version

    I'm getting it on Wii U. Besides the fact that I won't be getting a Switch for the foreseeable future, I already own the Wii U. There's no point in getting the console for one game. Granted, as Spirit said, there will be more games, and eventually the console will be worth it (maybe), but if you...

    What concerns me about BOTW

    I'm in the camp that sometimes they show too much. All we need is a teaser. I know that in an age of short attention spans, they have to keep releasing new info in order to keep our tiny-and-ever-shrinking-brains captivated, but man, sometimes they show too much. Going back and seeing how much...

    Link is not a nice chap in Breath of the Wild

    They're also incredibly nasty-looking. I'm sure their meat would be tough and chewy, and not at all appetizing.

    Confirmed - It's Possible to Beat the Game Right Away

    But, aside from The Legend of Zelda, where the concept of the Master Sword wasn't even a thing (although I always considered it as the Master Sword, in my headcanon), you need the Master Sword to beat the game, regardless. You can't defeat Agahnim without the Master Sword, for example. So you...

    So if the game's map is this big...

    I'll chime in with the worry that this game's world will be too big. I said this about Xenoblade X, and there's the same potential here: the world in X was too big. However, I think the biggest problem in X was that I didn't really care enough about the world to explore it. It was beautifully...

    Nintendo Any of you hoping that the switch has a good internet browser?

    I only used the Wii U's browser sparingly, so I don't think I would miss it. However, it would be nice to have, because I did use it on occasion, when I was stuck on a level or something. It was just more convenient than getting on my ipad or something.

    Should console manufacturers ban very bad games from releasing on their condsoles?

    Absolutely not. If a console manufacturer wants to put a "Seal of Approval" on a game to show that they are backing it in terms of perceived quality, I'm okay with that, but nothing should be banned.

    Nintendo Switch Paid Online

    I had minimal problems on the Wii U with Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon. Both those games were fairly stable for me. Smash was better than Brawl in terms of connection stability, but still not good enough for me to play online. The hope is that now that we have to pay, the servers will be more...

    Switch damage protection

    I wonder if there will be some third party that comes out with some sort of case for it, like OtterBox or something akin to that. However, I do see a problem with any case, since you would probably have to remove the case to take off the Joy-Cons. Unless you only plan on playing with a Pro...

    Nintendo Switch Paid Online

    So here is my big question about the NES/SNES games. These aren't the same thing as Virtual Console, right? These are basically 1-month trials of games that come included with the one-year online subscription? I'm just trying to make sure I have my facts straight.

    Top 5 games you have the strongest nostalgia for

    Gotcha. I really really loved Manhattan Project when I was a kid. I only beat it once, but I remember it very fondly today. Nostalgia and all that.

    Is King Dedede a duck or a penguin?

    I always thought he was a pigeon, to be honest. But out of those two, I say penguin. Also, this glory:

    Will Nintendo's 2017 E3 be strong?

    Which developers? Aside from Capcom, I haven't heard any company outright say they aren't bringing their best IPs to the Switch, and even Capcom didn't scoff or poke fun. I do know that the Switch's 2017 game lineup is horrible. The only way it's better than Wii U's 2016 is that it exists, but...

    What Games Should be on the Nintendo Switch?

    Yeah, unfortunately, Capcom has said they have no plans to bring RE7, which I understand is getting incredibly high praise, to the Switch. It's a freaking shame.

    Which Game Has the Best Story?

    I agree with @Castle in that a story can turn a good game into a bad game. But to me, it can also turn a mediocre game into a more enjoyable one. However, gameplay is the most important part of a video game. Bad gameplay is always bad. Stories can add or subtract, for sure, but if the gameplay...

    Aonuma on the Possibility of a Playable Female Protagonist

    I would love to play as Zelda. I think it would be very cool to have something like early Resident Evil games, where you had to play through both Jill's and Chris's stories to get the full story. I think it would be awesome to have a game where you play as Link and then play as Zelda to get a...

    VikzeLink's Weekly Sunday Poll 238!

    I like the city ones, simply because they remind me of the better puzzling aspects of the game.

    The Switch is DOOMED

    As furious as it would make me, I think Nintendo would have been smarter just making the game a Switch exclusive, and thus sort of forcing people to get the Switch. The fact that I can play the game on the Wii U is a major reason why I won't get a Switch Day One. I know I'm sacrificing...

    Does the Timeline even matter for BotW?

    I wouldn't even mind if they kept it vague so that we (the fans) can still have theories. I think theorizing and having fan-made speculation was so fun. Have like a general story, but instead of telling us "this is the real story" just give us tiny bits and pieces throughout the game so that...

    The Switch is DOOMED

    The only issue with that statement is that that must-own game is also on the Wii U. As I told you in a different thread, I am very curious to see how many copies the game sells, Wii U v. Switch.

    The Switch is DOOMED

    I wasn't going to, but now I am. But it's a gamble, right? Because perhaps the game won't run well on the Wii U. I don't mind if the Switch version is better (because it will be), as long as the Wii U version is playable. But I can't justify to myself to pay $300 to only play one game that I can...

    Does the Timeline even matter for BotW?

    What I would personally love to see is a redo of the lore of the series. I mean, if they turned BoTW into a reset of the lore. Take all the things that have worked in other games, and adopt them into one coherent story that starts now. And every subsequent game builds from this game, moving...

    The Switch is DOOMED

    The handheld and console experiences are very different. That's the whole point. The console experience is far better. We've talked about this before. I believe I have even seen you say it. You've also said a game on the PS4 > Switch because of power. So how can you say the 3DS and Wii U...

    The Switch is DOOMED

    This is neither here nor there, but I am really interested in seeing which version sells more. I think more people will get the Wii U version than we all think. I think the Switch version will probably outsell the Wii U version, but I think a lot of people underestimate how many people are...

    The Switch is DOOMED

    Right. And as of today, right now, that I just checked the list, they don't have good 3rd party support or good 1st party games. Which is my entire problem. We got a lot of 3rd party games on that list, and they almost all shovelware. Not a single AAA 3rd party game in the first 5 months. I...

    The Switch is DOOMED

    Haha, yeah I think he misread me. I won't enforce the deal if he misread that. Though legally I could ;) Oh I absolutely agree that Splatoon 2 is totally a AAA title. In another thread I pointed to 3 games from now until summer that are "killer apps" (a term that has fallen out of favor, I've...

    Does the Timeline even matter for BotW?

    The Official Nintendo-backed The Legend of Zelda Timeline was indeed made up after the games. There was no official timeline until the build-up to Skyward Sword. And as for your second point, if they are two different stories, then why put them in the same timeline? And even further, they have...
  32. CrimsonCavalier

    Does the Timeline even matter for BotW?

    Me neither. The timeline doesn't bother me or make me angry. I just refuse to acknowledge it. To me, the games that follow a story line are the games that make sense. So, to me, Legend of Zelda — Adventure or Link are together, but A Link to the Past is its own game, not attached to any other...

    The Switch is DOOMED

    Arms is not a heavy hitter. In no universe is that game a heavy hitter. I'd be willing to bet you real life money that games doesn't sell over 100,000 copies. And as far as Dragon Quest, great, good for Japan. But when is the rest of the world getting the Dragon Quest games. Does Nintendo...

    Best Wii U Games

    Not really? I named 9 fantastic games, and there are a few that I haven't played yet. I haven't played Captain Toad or Tropical Freeze, for example, which I've heard are both really good. I'd argue that even if a console only has 5 true must-own titles, then it's a success. The Wii U has at...

    What Games Should be on the Nintendo Switch?

    I should have been more specific: I meant no AAA titles early in the Switch's lifespan. From launch to summer, you have Zelda, Splatoon 2 (and sure, I'll add MK8D), and Xenoblade. That will be a 5-month span with 4 games that are of the quality to attract the "core demographic" and they are all...
  36. CrimsonCavalier

    Does the Timeline even matter for BotW?

    How? It was literally made up after the games released. The games weren't meant to be on a timeline. The timeline was built around the games. But like I said, some of the games are obviously meant to be together (Ocarina of Time — Majora's Mask). But others are not. You can't connect Minish Cap...

    Link Will Be Link

    I never named Link anything other than Link, so it doesn't really matter to me. I was never against being able to name your save file though, I'm sure we'll still be able to do that. But Link is Link. He has always been Link. He has always been a character to me, never a blank slate. He always...

    Does the Timeline even matter for BotW?

    I'm firmly rooted in the "The Timeline is Bollocks" camp. I've never really adhered to it, and I've become even more against ever since the Hyrule Historia was released. Don't get me wrong, I own the book. It's an amazing collector's item. My problem with the timeline, and worrying where the...

    How long do you expect the Switch to remain active?

    I think people are stoked about Breath of the Wild on Switch, and that is definitely what pushed it selling out. However, unless there are new announcements soon that momentum will die very very fast. As someone who already decided to hold off until May to get one (because of school), I'm...

    A DK Country game for Switch?

    I haven't played either of the latest two 2D DKC games. I loved the first two DKC games for SNES (haven't played DKC3 yet). If find those games a lot of fun, with a good challenge, and lots of secrets. The series lost me with DK64, one of the worst games I've ever played (and still own, by the...

    Is Sega bad or just Sonic?

    I think there's something to be said for this argument. But the whole premise of Sonic is going fast. Mario never had that gimmick. You could go fast, you could not go fast, as long as in the end you reached the goal. But Sonic was always about speed. And that sometimes didn't translate well in...

    What Games Should be on the Nintendo Switch?

    I'm sure everyone is tired of me being a Negative Nancy, but out of the actual announced games in that graphic, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Splatoon 2 are the only ones that are even remotely a AAA titles. I am Setsuna looks interesting, and so does Disgaea 5, but that's because I'm into JRPGs. I...

    Best Wii U Games

    Nintendo Switch News and Discussion Thread

    They have promised us this before, and then immediately spat in our faces. I won't believe a thing EA or Ubisoft say unless I see real games. I want Dragon Age, not FIFA. And even if FIFA comes, I want real FIFA, not bobble head FIFA like they released on the Wii. It had better not be Motion...

    The Switch is DOOMED

    @the8thark The first few months will tell a lot of what will probably happen in the future. I think Switch sales from launch through June/July will really give us a clear picture of what's happening, especially if we compare those figures to 3DS sales during the same time. I'll be honest, right...

    The Switch is DOOMED

    If Nintendo is trying to get the average gamer—the so-called "core gamer"—then they will be looking to tap into a demographic that is 30+ years old, not college students. The average gamer is a 30+ year old male. Right, but they take it everywhere because it does everything. In my classes...

    What Games Should be on the Nintendo Switch?

    I'm not sure what this is supposed to imply. I mean, other than the Zelda thing, nothing here is surprising or even bad. Splatoon, Nintendo IP Warriors, and Xenoblade were all either new IPs or IPs that weren't really established. Now that Splatoon and the Xenoblade name are bigger, it makes...

    The Switch is DOOMED

    First mistake. It's not really a hybrid. It's not a handheld. It's like people are completely ignoring everything we've seen and read. This isn't replacing the 3DS because it's nothing like the 3DS. You can't put it in your pocket, you can't take it everywhere with you, and the battery life on...

    Is Sega bad or just Sonic?

    Well, to be fair, if you're going to quote me, you should actually quote what I said. I never said SEGA was NEVER good. But I was a bit vague. SEGA is no longer good. They were good. But that was decades ago. What's good about them now? Their old IPs that they have all but abandoned don't make...
