Is $43 US for a new Xenoblade Chronicles: DE (physical) about as cheap as it'll be?
I would guess so, it's definitely worth it though. I loved replaying and finally completing it a decade after the original release.
Probably one of the best remasters out there.

Kinda where I'm at.. Started it twice (Wii and Android emu), but never can get a good stride to complete.  Was hoping this would get me to; the quality and convenience of it.

Yeah, I did the same thing. Started it on Dolphin and then again on Wii when the US version was released, then finally beat it for the first time on the Switch.

Nintendo didnt emulate a memory card for n64 so you literally cannot save your game in winback or time trials in mario kart

You cannot remap controls

Online is bad

Input lag

Genesis seems aight tho

Does the N64 utilize the rewind feature?

No, but it does support save states.

I was looking forward to playing Sin and Punishment, but apparently it has input lag issues. I'll probably stick to the Mega Drive games while I wait for Shin Megami Tensei V.

Help me yall, I just bought Mrs. Nuff a Switch Lite to wean her off those garbage F2P match 3 phone games.

Mrs. Nuff loves slow paced puzzle games that don't have time limits, and bodyslamming people. What games do I get her?!

Crossniq+ and Tetris Effect Connected are worth checking out, although Crossniq is time-based.  Tetris Effect has some endless marathon mode options.  Don't know if there's any decent wrasslin' games on Switch, but if she just wants to beat up baddies, there's Fight'N Rage and Streets Of Rage 4!

Very cinematic and artsy

Seems like Nintendo has given up on their high QA standards in general. None of their games this year were as polished as say Tales of Arise.

It's only the 5th time they sell you those games, give them a break, I'm sure the Switch Pro will run them fine.

Reading the Twitter replies, the dude is a speedrunner and testing out a known glitch/exploit so I wouldn't really say that's indicative of how the game actually runs for most people.

Every few years I keep forgetting that Nintendo is a terrible fucking company because they make a good game here and there and NOSTALGIA

Then I remember oh yeah, they fucking suck  :maf


When can we get a well-emulated Saturn/Dreamcast/N64/PS1/Xbox 1 collection/mini-console? Why is everything post 16-bit so hard for these companies to get right wtf


Also there's a new Pikmin and it's a mobile game or something. Fuck Nintendo

breh, just emulate that shit damn. the emu's have worked well on a toaster for years, and have better features than anything they'll ever release. creating a separate piece of hardware for emulating 3d era consoles just seems dumb imo

The saturn one I'm down with because 1.) nice controller and 2.) weird ass library where I honestly have no idea what the must plays are.

I would be down with the 64 one, but maybe just better to buy the usb controller and just play on emu. the 64 itself runs like shit anyway so emu is way ahead of reality.

iirc they got N64 right on Wii Virtual Console day1. Then it's gotten worse each generation, like so many of their features.  :doge

Remember when Nintendo DS had built-in voice chat?

Get a Raspberry Pi 4, mini 'media' PC or PC stick, or one of the numerous handheld emulation consoles out there.

Or for the latter to be included, get an Xbox Series S or X and purchase developer tools to use emulators.

true. i mean, all the stuff that isn't on other systems are relatively obscure japanese games that only have fan translations, and the 3d stuff that looks interesting like burning rangers is not something i wish to subject myself tooo (non analogue 3d action)

retro-bit have a bt saturn controller you can pick up for $30

could be keen on it depending on emulation quality and library. always wanted to play hyper duel (thunderforce devs) and dragon force. i have also never played a panzer dragoon game.

Skimmed some of the SMTV reviews. Seems like good gameplay, weak story.
Which sounds a lot like SMTIV. I can't remember a single character or anything plot-wise from that game after the fantastic opening.

Should be good enough, but shame it seems like they can't pull off another Nocturne.


Fwiw, I did like the more story-driven SMTIV Apocalypse, but I am also ok with some anime in my SMT.

I liked the story in SMT4 (Chaos route iirc). :idont Absolutely loath the story in Apocalypse though, which I fear is closer to what we'll get from Atlus here on out.

Uhhh so I don't know WTF the situation is here in terms of dual language, I'd like to pick up a physical copy here in Japan but I can't find anything saying if the game is a universal ROM this time around with all the voices/languages included?

eShop says it's Japanese-only- the American version also doesn't have Japanese listed as a support language.  Guessing they're trying to stop Japanese players from importing it for lower prices. 

They did a similar thing with Persona 4 Arena-  IIRC it was the only game ever released on PS3 that was actually region-locked to prevent importing.

US version has Japanese voice DLC that is free. JPN version probably does not have English dub track DLC.

It's honestly the only way to play this thing portable. The joycons are absolute dogshit. They're basically permanently stuck in my OLED Switch.

My old switch has basically just become a regular console.
