  2. How's it going guys?

    What up, ya'll?
  3. Wii U VC?

    Mario Maker was technically a gimped port on 3DS. It would fit perfectly on Switch. TPHD and WWHD were never on 3DS. It would be a shame to let those HD remasters die on a dead platform. I think your assumptions are off base. Nintendo has no issue repackaging their games so you buy them again, and again, and again. Look at how they have made people rebuy VC games over the years. They have no issue milking that cow.
  4. Wii U VC?

    I don't think those games will be ported because they were either already ports or were ported to 3ds. Same reason we won't get Mario maker on switch
  5. Buyers Concerns

    Welcome to the forums! Let me address a few things... I mean, it's cool if you don't want to play the games in the state they are on Switch... but I enjoy them. It's not like you can't play them elsewhere instead? Options my friend. I don't really understand this comment. Is the idea here that the Wii U games are really bad or something? Just curious, because the Wii U had oodles of really good games. To answer your last question - no. Based on the way you're talking and your own personal desires, you absolutely should not buy a Switch. Look at the way you're talking about the platform and it's shortcomings combined with your personal desires. You're a PC enthusiasts (as am I, but more so an overall tech enthusiast then just PC). You're not sitting there talking about how great the exclusive games look to be, or how impressive it is in the form factor Switch is to run certain games that really no other tablet has any business pulling off. You just talk about your personal disgust that such games even attempt to run on Switch. You also talk about overclocking and "upgradability" - these are not what dedicated video game devices are. That's not just a Switch thing - PS4 and Xbox One are the same way. Besides a hard-drive swap, you can't do anything else to those platforms. That is very much a thing with pc tech. Which is part of the reason you are a PC gamer first and foremost. You are an admitted PC tech enthusiast. And that is perfectly fine. The Switch was being made at time when Tegra X1 was among the best mobile gaming chips on the planet. It's not that anymore, but it's not way behind, either.
  6. Wii U VC?

    I mean, obviously we need to have Virtual Console in the first place. Without Virtual Console, there is nothing to discuss. At the same time, I sincerely doubt we would EVER get Wii U VC. Because, as has been proven so far, they can just rerelease the entire Wii U exclusive library for full price and makes lots of money. You mention how WW HD, TP HD, and Yoshi's Wolly World will "never get ported" - I'm curious, how did you come to that conclusion? Ports of Wii U games are cheap, simple, and easy to do and they have the entire lifespan of Switch to port them over. How do you know they aren't going to do just that with every exclusive? Also, explain this: Now, obviously I understand if motion controls are NOT your thing, but they really have no impact on most users. Very few games use them much, but they are still there for games that want to. Those controls have also made Nintendo Labo entirely possible, as well as the chance of getting Skyward Sword HD. Just curious, when considering that, how people can think it's unfortunate that Switch has motion controls. Arguably, part of Switch's brilliance is how they incorporated practically every single control option they have had over the past 20 years in a simple pair of joycons.
  7. Buyers Concerns

    Think of it this way: What other system is going to let you play Super Mario Odyssey ;D In a broader sense, the choice of a console really boils down to the games, because that's what they are made for. And if games are on multiple consoles, what system do you think will give you the best experience. Knowing what games you want to play will help make this decision easier.
  8. Buyers Concerns

    hey all, Reign here. I have been holding off on purchasing a Switch thus far. Ive never been one to early adopt any new tech since most new tech often comes with a revision to fix hardware etc after a year or two in. At first, it was the lack of game library the switch offered. Nindies galore that i have infinite access to on my PC, WiiU ports that frankly should have died with the console, and 3rd party games that, in my opinion, should never have been put onto a switch... looking at you bethesda.... anyway. Now that the Switch library is expanding and with the foretold release of several new titles, my interest has been peaked. ( i somehow did not see the megaman 11 release trailer until now, 3 months after the fact) Even with the release of new titles that are original to the switch and not just ports, im finding it difficult to purchase a switch still. Would i love to overclock it and actually utilize it for what it is? YES. do i want to do it by hacking into my switch? not necessarily. As a PC enthusiast for more than 20 years, of course i would like to see more open platform abilities such as improving cooling, RAM/CPU/GPU clock speeds, screen refresh rates, battery upgrades, etc etc. Honestly, i dont think nintendo will ever make a system that lives up to the potential it boasts and so deservingly craves. No, i do not own a switch yet, im thinking about finally purchasing one but should i? system crashes and failures, integrity issues with the physical system, its chipset, and nintendo itself to be frank... i WANT to want a switch... but so far its an out-dated, old gen box for 300 USD and thats without a game. Virtual Console is still non-existent. Online is "coming" and will more than likely be a buggy mess for at least a year based off nintendo's track record. The appeal of a switch to me is intensely great. A Ferrari looks great too doesnt it? but without the motor its just an empty shell. With nothing to drive the switch forward (other than tapping into nostalgia and promised features and games that have yet to be released), whats keeping it held back? the system being hacked isnt. i can tell you that much. im willing to bet that the number of willing modders for switch is less of a percent than those on other systems. will it happen? yea no doubt it will. but thats not as "major" of an issue as nintendo is making it out to be in my opinion. if they would simply do what they say they are going to do, no one would have a reason to mod/hack. same thing with nin prime's point about the dock. nintendo is creating its own problems by not delivering what the consumers want, need or are promised to receive. but i still want one. picking one up maybe this weekend not sure yet. What i am sure of is that NINPrime will be one of my main sources of information regarding the switch. TL:DR Switch = Meh so far to me and that's..... that's pretty darn upsetting. NINPrime = good
  9. Wii U VC?

    Well, first there needs to be a Virtual Console of some kind to begin with. We have the Arcade Archives, but that's not quite the same thing. If a Virtual Console gets announced, then maybe, but otherwise, I think they'll keep sticking with ports.
  10. Wii U VC?

    Just thinking out loud... I know lots of people want to see NES, SNES, N64 and GC but for me I would like to see Wii and Wii U games. I'm aware that they are getting remasters but games like WW HD, TP HD, Yoshi's Wolly World and others are never going to get ported. Also, the Switch is perfect for Wii VC! We already have (unfortunatley) motion controls, so I think it would be a no-brainer ESPECIALLY because they are already running on Tegra X1 hardware. What do you guys think?
  11. I see you've updated again

    And now I see you got rid of the scroll bar, but hey it was either that or the list, really. The list looks better though, having all the posts there in one place with a preview. All in all, this is looking good!
  12. I see you've updated again

    We're still making some adjustments. We arleady made it better on YouTube.
  13. I see you've updated again

    Looks like you've updated the main site again for the eleventeenth time Looks good. I like the scroll bar to go through the recent news, but it seems kind of redundant to have a long list of them immediately afterward.
  14. Nintendo Direct 3/8/2018

    Right on the money!
  15. Nintendo Direct 3/8/2018

    Yeah, Smash.
  16. Nintendo Direct 3/8/2018

    Any Nintendo Direct predictions? Looks like Mario Tennis has some leaks already from Japan!
  17. Mercenaries Saga Chronicles

    Mercenaries Saga Chronicles is pretty good from what I've played so far. I'm still on the first game for right now. It's 3 games in one. Pretty cool.
  18. Mercenaries Saga Chronicles

    Keep us updated on how well ypu enjoy it.Besides Zelda. I have not been spending money on Switch games, let alone indie games.
  19. Mercenaries Saga Chronicles

    I played the demo and that was fun. Good graphics and combat, though the diagonal control movement takes a bit to get used to, however. Never played this type of game before, but not sure if I'll get the full game.
