Nintendo Switch


#81

Oh nice, cheers.


#82

It’s superb. Definitely play it. Both DKC Returns and Tropical Freeze are fantastic games.


#83

The worst part is that we’ll never get the game shown to us at the Switch unveiling. The new Metroid 4 will likely be a completely different game.


#84

It’s cool that Nintendo are being so transparent and just letting everyone know up front there will be a sequel to Metroid Prime from Retro, but not to expect it anytime soon. A Game Informer reporter offered some tidbits about why the initial version encountered some issues in development.


Apparently a Switch port of the original Trilogy is ready to roll, too!


#85

Not sure if serious… but what is this game you’re remembering? Because all that’s ever been shown of Metroid 4 is the logo teaser at E3 2017. :)


#86

You mean a logo?


#87

Yeah, hard to get upset about never seeing what was being worked on when we never saw anything that they worked on!


#88

Frankly, any fan of a game that’s acknowledged to be in development is already spoiled rotten. I wish some of my favorite franchises had a new game in work!


#89

Never got into Prime on the GC. It was my first MetroidVania and I hated the fact that there were areas I couldn’t get to “yet” and couldn’t wrap my head around that concept. I’m glad to hear they are allegedly being remade. Although I did buy the trilogy on the Wii and still never got around to playing them.


#90

Cannot complain about Nintendo’s customer service. Repaired my out of warranty joycons for free. Good as new.

I don’t have any idea what caused the drift issue in both. And both went bad at the same time, too.


#91

I’m surprised they’re not pushing this to placate fans over the MP4 delay, assuming it’s true of course.


#92

Maybe Nintendo’s about to host a January Direct and were concerned a Metroid Prime 4 no-show would upset people? If it’s true, I hope the restart doesn’t delay the Trilogy port, because it would suck to think Nintendo were just sitting on something that’s basically finished. I would totally be placated by two-and-a-half great games over a WIP sequel we know no details about.


#93

Makes sense to me, the first 2019 Direct was rumoured for the 10th but didn’t happen. Though there was a ‘Nindies Direct’ only a couple days ago so hopefully that wasn’t it.


#94

Okay, now I’m back on my PC I found this:

#95

I’m definitely picking up Wargroove for switch if we can get some async multi games going here.


#96

I am failing to pick up the excitement around Wargroove: Uniwars had already tried the multiplayer async Advance Wars thing and it was about as exciting as a rock-paper-scissor session that wouldn’t end. The real new thing seems to be having 4 players at once, which sounds great for dynamic alliances, but I have doubt over having that many players in async. If iOS told me anything, having over 2 players on a single async game means that much more chance for somebody being busy, losing interest, forgetting, or worse, dropping and ruining the game. I have never seen a game of Nightfall to the end because of that.
I’m grumpy today, I need to go get something to eat, I guess.


#97

I’ve been playing Solium Infernum and Chaos Reborn for years, both up to six players async! :-D

I never got a game going with Uniwar unfortunately.


#98

I played tons of Uniwar. It was my first and favorite iPhone game. Never had problems finding and finishing games and was ranked pretty high.

Wargroove has a campaign right? As much as I enjoy the multiplayer, I’d be getting it for that first.


#99

As with most multi platform games nowadays, Switch just wins. That flexibility of how to play, when, and where is just king.


#100

I was going to preorder Wargroove, but I pulled the trigger on Steamworld Heist instead. Will definitely get it if it’s a reasonable take on Advance Wars.
