They're gonna keep adding more modes to it, so right now it's a lower-value proposition than it'll eventually end up.

I don't care though, I need Marathon Mode (and also that sweet Game Boy theme. :drool)

They're only looking for a 'few' positions.

Such as:
Art director
Lead character artist
Lead graphics engineer
Lead cinematics artist
Lead External Environment Artist

Once those are filled in they can start pre-production on this thing for real.

Yeah uh, look forward to playing this in 4 years

I bought this just for the marathon mode...even though I have Puyo Puyo Tetris and it already has the same mode available.  :P  You can just get the Puyo Tetris free demo and do marathon mode, IIRC.  :lol

Saint's Row The Third is out today- some people got it early and have cited framerate issues (although video I saw looked fine), but it's supposed to have a day one patch today.  Hoping it turns out to be a good port.  Would totally play this all over again as a portable game.

Hmm... :thinking

I see some replies to it saying the game runs fine though (basically the same as it did in 2011), so I may still take a chance and open it.  It appears that the patch is more to address some bugs.  There's some reports of crashes here and there, missing subtitles, and some people who got it digitally can't play it yet. :lol

Is Smash ever going to go on sale in the digital store or will it stay $60 for the entire life of Switch based on past Smash games?

I've decided to go 100% digital on Switch because sometimes I wanna play a few rounds of smash but I don't want to walk over and put the game in. So I'm gonna double dip for the digital copy but I'd like to get it on a sale since already bought it physical...

You'll see the price drop down on the physical copies way before the digital price ever does.

Isn't that why most people are going all digital these days?

On Switch it's mostly because I do all my switch gaming in bed at night and I like to play 20 mins of this game, 20 mins of that game, a few matches of Tetris 99. Last thing I wanna do is get out of bed and go grab the cart and put it in just to play a few rounds of Smash or one run in classic mode.

On consoles I'm still rocking the physical because if I'm gonna sit down on my gaming tv setup and play a game, I'll probably play for a couple hours and that's the only game I'll play. But I buy all my fighting games on PS4 digital so if people are over and we're flipping through fighters we don't have to be constantly changing discs.


Anyhow, it sounds like Smash ain't gonna go any lower, so I'll just double dip digital and then try to sell the physical. I'm guessing it still goes for pretty decent penny since the game never goes on sale.

Because they're lazy?  :thinking  :P 

Convenience is a part of it, sure.  I would assume that and another big reason is to de-clutter and not have more stuff lying around.

So get a little game storage case and put it next to your bed for the carts you already own?

Nintendo might be the worst when it comes to digital price drops, but I guess they can get away with it.  There were still some Wii U games that were priced too high on the eShop last time I checked.

Resale value :rejoice

Resale value on games that you paid $30 for that now sell for $300+ :phil

But yeah, I dig the convenience of all-digital- it's not like I give a crap about buying physical copies of PC games.  Putting collecting and reselling aside, PS4 is useless for physical releases since you have to full-install all the games.  On Switch there are a lot of games that are either complete on cart or mostly-complete on the cart and it helps to save a lot of space on micro SD cards.  I realize that I'm one of the crazier ones who buys too much shit, however.

Whenever I feel like I'm done with the collecting thing, I will also be going almost all if not completely digital, too.  Might start doing that with the next round of consoles.

I agree on the convenience, but the price has to be super low or it has to be a game I know will be fresh forever (Civ6, D3).

Otherwise I buy everything physical for that resale value which is especially good with Nintendo games. Like I know that I will bw able yo sell Smash in a few months for close to what I bought it for.

Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well.

Iím currently spending time with the family and having a break from everything. With the passing of Saber itís made us realise we need time out.

The last 8 years of Building, renovations, moving house, building, renovations and then finally losing both dogs (family members) within a year of each other has taken its toll on us all.

Since last week Iíve lost the passion for well.. anything. Video games, tv, cars even working so this break is long overdue.

I canít get on camera and act like everything is ok as thatís not how I work.

I ask you to please hang in there and let me spend time with my family.
Thank you for all the wonderful support.

Then he came back and found out his father is terminally ill.  :(

It apparently needs another patch. When undocked it's fine, but when docked, the framerate tanks into the single digits.

I think the day one patch for SR3 actually ended up being delayed a bit. What they're offering for $40 is $15 digitally on PC base price and often goes on sale for like $3.74. :doge It's cool that it's on Switch and I don't have all the DLC for it on 360 so whenever that version drops to $20 I may bite. :-[

SMM2 is going to be insanely huge for them, they've added a lot to what could have just been a straight port and still sold/done well due to having a significantly larger user base than the Weeoo had. Kids could get just that for the year and be more than set gaming wise.

Welp, that vouchers thing was the discount I was looking for to double dip on Smash digital. Between using point cards off Amazon for the $100 and getting 5% back there ($5) and the 500 e-shop points you get ($5), it brings it down to $45/game instead of $60, which is alright for stuff Nintendo never puts on sale I guess. Not great deal but better than nothing. Pre-ordered Super Mario Maker 2 & Smash. Hopefully Mario Maker 2 has as good single player campaigns as the original, which I've still never bought, did. No interest in making levels or playing user levels, just getting it for the official Nintendo campaigns because I heard they were quality in Mario Maker 1.

:mindblown

There's some incredible user-made levels out there that people are still playing and making even now.  Anyway, check out the direct on it.  Shitloads of new content including new levels and item sets based on 3D World...in 2D.  Has co-op and competitive multiplayer, too.



Good example of a creative user-made level:

Got that theme after playing some matches- was pretty easy to get 100 points.  Really didn't play this very much until the DLC for offline play came out- I'm good with just marathon, but online is pretty fun.  Had the same thing happen where some matches just seemed fucked right off the bat.  :lol
