@KratosMD The Joy-Cons are the reason I just don’t play the Switch that often. They really cramp my hands in handheld so I mostly play on TV holding them like the Wiimote and Nunchuck. FPS games are hard enough with the tiny inaccurate sticks and the digital triggers take all the weight out of firing. At least the HD rumble’s cool, I’m really looking forward to the DS5’s adaptive triggers and improved buzzy thingy.

It might be an important release to you, but I don't really care about it. Thus, I feel no need to talk about it. The system has already received a number of far more demanding and improbable ports of games like DOOM 2016, Wolfenstein: TNC, Divinity: Original Sin 2, Dragon Quest XI, and The Witcher 3, so Metro is something to just toss onto the pile. I'm not saying it's wrong to be excited for it, but it's hardly some sort of massive, game-changing release that you'd expect people to be gabbing about on here. Besides, what counts as an important release differs from person to person when you get to random third party stuff. Shantae and the Seven Sirens is a highly anticipated release for me, but just some random indie platformer for other people. It won't surprise me if I don't notice a lot of other people talking about it, even if, to me, it's a "notable release." You dig?

@Ralizah Well much like the buzz around various other games, I figured I'd drop it in here, see how people would react to it's announcement.

Evidently with the sarcastic excitement of the deceased. Makes me wonder why I bother

@Knuckles-Fajita Hmm, is an old port of a remaster collection that notable? It's certainly nice for Nintendo-only gamers who may want to experience the series, but otherwise it's a genuine shrug. As @Ralizah notes there have been far more impressive ports.

@KratosMD I haven't actually played an FPS on the system, but the digital triggers could potentially be an issue for some games. In any case, my feelings are that if I play on the TV I may as well play on the PS4, and in handheld mode I find the console uncomfortable enough to hold as it is, especially when both sticks are used.


Anyhoo, who does everyone think might be in the next Fighters Pass in Smash Bros.? I'm not that fussed about Byleth and have no idea who she even is. While I feel that Fire Emblem as a whole is a little overrepresented, some of the characters are among my favourite fighters - especially Marth and Corrin.

@mookysam Dante would be fantastic. The whole styles setup would work well plus he’s been in fighting games before. I’d personally love to see someone out of left field such as Chibi-Robo or Viewtiful Joe.

Don't most games still use different triggers for aiming and shooting? I don't know why analog vs digital would matter with regard to the joycon sticks in shooters.

IMO I find aiming in any game without gyro fine-tuning to be inaccurate and uncomfortable. Which is probably why, if I ever did get Metro on console, it'd be the Switch version.

@nessisonett Chibi-Robo would be pretty great! Aside from an electric attack his cord could be a whip and help him reach ledges. Plus he's so darn cute. I think Dante could be an interesting character too. Perhaps like a heavier Joker given the mix of sword and gun usage. I'm still hoping for Tetra from Wind Waker. Rather hoping for something quite random and unexpected. Just scanning my shelf quickly Red from Solatarobo stuck out. Wouldn't say no to Master Chief (however unlikely) but have no idea what his move set would be. 😂

@Ralizah Some games do utilise analogue triggers to determine fire rate, depending on how much pressure is placed on the trigger.

@mookysam I've never played the game and I doubt it would ever happen, but I think Spider-Ham would be a good fit!

@nessisonett Yeah I don't like using the Joy-Cons either. Maybe if I were playing a turn-based RPG where I needed to grind, those would be comfortable to use instead of holding an actual controller. But right now, the Switch Pro Controller is definitely my favourite way of playing Switch games and I'm so glad that I bought it even though it was really expensive. It's worth it though because it's supported with pretty much all Switch games compared to the Wii U Pro Controller which wasn't integrated into most Wii U games.

I even played the old DOOM games with the Pro Controller and it felt so much better than with the Joy-Cons.

@mookysam Yeah that's the reason why I only bought DOOM 1 and 2 on Switch, while I got DOOM 3 on PS4 simply because of the difference in triggers. Sometimes you want the added precision because maybe you just want to fire off one shot, or a couple of shots. I want to have that option available to me basically.

In terms of characters in the next Fighter's Pass, I just hope they keep adding ones outside of Nintendo's franchises like the previous ones. I personally want to see Sora, Leon S. Kennedy (we need more gun fighters!), 2B (don't think it'll happen though since she's already in Soul Calibur), Dante and Crash Bandicoot. Even the article on NL the other day about Sam Porter Bridges from Death Stranding would be cool. I know the tweet about that wasn't a hint at all, but it wouldn't surprise me if Sakurai actually added another Kojima-made character since we already have Snake in the game.

A lot of topics today!

Thanks to the skip travel I figure I'm probably good, but is there a point in Torna where you get locked out of visiting past areas to complete quests/level up? I'm holding on to all my extra exp (last time I checked I can make everyone in my party jump 10 levels if I want, but I want to build even more up first), but am nervous about closing in on the end and loosing access to the campfires.

When it comes to the next Smash fighter's pass Sora (Kingdom Hearts) is my number one choice, but due to the Disney connection I just don't see it happening. Sure, they could give him a neutral keyblade like Oathkeeper, use a KH original world for the stage (Destiny Islands, Twilight Town, etc), and feature only KH original characters (or the KH versions of the FF characters) as spirits, but that wouldn't really be true to the spirit of the series, and since Sakurai loves going all out when it comes to accurately representing a series, I don't think those are sacrifices he'd be willing to make.

Other than Sora, I'd love to see Shantae, Rex & Pyra/Mythra (XC2), Paper Mario, Akira Howard (Astral Chain), and Amaterasu (Okami).

Also, It's interesting to see the aprehensiveness here about playing FPS on Switch, if only because on NL there's a community of players who swear they can't go back to playing FPS on other consoles due to the lack of gyro support (which apparently even most notable 3rd party shooters support on Switch). Different perspectives and all that.

@RR529 I too would love to see Sora but seeing the atrocious support the FF series has in Smash (only two songs!) makes me very anxious that even if they did add him, they just wouldn’t do him justice. Plus, as you say, the ties to Disney would prove rather awkward to implement as they couldn’t just ignore a massive part of the series, including Donald and Goofy.

I am all in for Bioshock on Switch as I am a sucker for rebuying those games!

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

@KratosMD @RR529 Ameterasu would be great. The majority (all?) of the non-human characters are anthropomorphic, so a four-legged fighter could bring a really interesting dynamic. Plus I'd love to see what the stage would be like.

Sora feels like a pretty good bet. I can picture his final smash being a fairground attraction from III. Definitely need more gun-based characters though!

A four-legged fighter already exists.

He throws clay pigeons and shoots people

Finished up defeating all the Unique Monsters (optional bosses) in Torna tonight! By far the toughest was a level 48 deer monster that was absolutely kicking my butt even though my entire party was nearly 20 levels higher than it at level 66 (I think it had a bucking attack that would nearly one-shot anyone positioned behind it). It's difficulty really suprised me because none of the other Unique Monsters gave me nearly as much trouble (including a giant level 55 Manta Ray, that I managed to easily defeat even with an incomplete party after someone fell off a cliff early on in the fight).

Anyhow, now that I've done that and have completed all the sidequests as well, I think I'm going to take on the final boss. The only extraneous activity I haven't done is fight the Golden Monsters.

Some ball bustin sales figures for Switch, overtaking XBO. I wonder how it will eventually compare to PS4 sales when they are both finished?

@JohnnyShoulder Probably on par if you ask me. 50 million in three years for Switch, around 100 million for PS4 in six years, so Switch should reach around the same number.

But yeah it's absolutely incredible numbers and really puts the Wii U to shame, lol.

At this right, Switch should overtake 3DS lifetime by 2021.

Pretty crazy, coming off of their worst-selling home console.
