The new Mario game on switch is fun as hell
Is this the cat mario with bowser's fury? Cat mario got a lot of multiplayer action back on the wii u for us, worth the double dip huh?
The switch is my first Nintendo since the SNES so I can’t compare, but this game is fun as hell

Speaking of Nintendo, just saw they are releasing Skyward Sword HD on Switch.

I'm pumped for this. I own it for the Wii, but honestly never got to it. So I've never played this. I'm going to pick it up upon release and play it on the swtich. It's the only non-handheld Zelda I never played/beat.

Is Among Us any good for kids that are 8 and 10? I've never played the game, but my kids and their friends play "Among us" in real life where they are playing otu the characters. I don't know WTF they are doing though.

Yes, it's good for kids that young. It's available on just about any portable device and crossplay too. My kids loved it for a while - but you may want to keep their games limited to only their real life friends/family.

You can occasionally come across a toxic lobby. The game has a "censor chat" feature but I believe by default it is off. Even if it isn't, it's very easy to turn censoring off in-game. For the most part, though, public lobbies aren't too bad. I agree with DG that keeping their games limited to real life friends/family would solve that problem. It's also just more fun to play with friends. You don't have randoms quitting if they're not the imposter, not doing tasks, cheaters, or weird ass game settings. The majority of the public lobbies won't be toxic, though, so if that's your fear I would say it's safe.

I liked it a lot... certainly better than Twilight Princess. There is some really cool stuff in there. Unfortunately, it has stealth collection areas like TP, which is the biggest thing I disliked.

It's kind of interesting that it mentions a buttons only mode because the motion controls were pretty integral in the game... like raising the sword to power it up (i.e. skyward sword), needing to adjust your swings to match the enemies' defenses, and so forth.

Not sure if I will get this, but any Zelda fan who missed out needs to play it.

Yep, you can use the joy cons for this or switch it to button only

Yeah, this will be a plus for me. I have the procontrollers, (the joycons suck ass for these games due to drift). But I'd rather use buttons only than the Wii controllers.

So apparently the right joystick will be used for mimicking the sword motion controls. I guess that means no way to control the camera then? Guess we'll have to wait for more information.

Yeah, the right joystick will do the sword.

I'm interested in the Capcom Arcade game. Is that going to be released in the US? I couldn't tell by the Direct video because it was all in Japanese.

I have been enjoying the NES/SNES games on Switch.

I just replayed Link 2. It's funny, I didn't have much of an issue with the game and felt it wasn't as hard as I remembered, all until I got to the run-up to Ganon's castle. Absurdly difficult. Those bird knights that jump all over the place and shoot swords are psychotic. I definitely saved states about a dozen times getting through the castle. :lol:

I thought the same. When I was a kid, I thought it was a difficult game, and I remember dreading having to go through Death Mountain. I replayed it a few months ago and breezed through it, Death Mountain was pretty easy overall, but where it got difficult was the last temple or whatever you want to call it. I definitely did some rewind/save on that.

I made it about half way through Crystalis, a game I never played on the NES back in the day, but then got side tracked with BOTW. I need to pick that back up.

And then I always enjoy the gold ole classics like Punchout, the Super Mario games, etc.

I just finished Wolfenstein The New Order. That was a damn fun, intense game. That said, it was REALLY intense.
The scene before the end with Deathshead and the brain removal....yikes

I tried getting into Witcher 3, but the game just seems lame. Couldn't do it.

Sorry to hear that man. It's one of my absolute favorites.

I have actually struggled to get into the first two, I think bc of the linear nature.

Edit: Looks like it's just applying to the $100 GC on my account, so YMMV.

I know there was some talk about the NES Lego set in here late last year/earlier this year. Well my wife and I took the plunge and got it this past weekend and put it together. We had to wait in line at Ross Park Mall to get into the Lego store on Saturday, but it was worth the wait.

I know it's expensive ($229), but it's worth every penny and the details are incredible. It legit looks like a real Nintendo and old CRT Tv. Spring loaded cartridge slot and everything. Crank on the tv to move Mario throughout the board as the screen rotates.

It took us about 8 1/2 hours of active building to get it all together. Honestly my wife could have probably shaved an hour off the build time if she was doing it herself and I wasn't slowing her down. :lol: :lol:

Put the pics below in a spoiler cause I wasn't sure how big they would show up.
