Just got 13 Sentinels for the Switch. I already bought and played the game on PS4 previously but I couldn't resist picking it up a second time.

So… Nintendo Switch Sports without Switch Online is a scam. You can technically play the single player mode against the AI but you can only earn 2 items a week, and they rotate weekly. So yeah, we can only really have progression on one profile. Nintendo are getting really bad for this.

The may the 4th hype has got me, I've just bought lego star wars: the skywalker saga on switch. I'm looking forward to some handheld antics and hopefully some family coop, even though I suspect it will push the switch hardware to the absolute limit! Cheers again @RogerRoger for the cracking review

@R1spam Aww, thanks for the tag! Am certain the Switch port will be perfectly playable, and really hope you and your family enjoy the game!

Am enjoying Mario Golf: Super Rush so far, though I don't think I'm a huge fan of Timed or Speed Golf, which seem to run counter to the vibe of Golf.

I'm in Balmy Dunes now (in the story mode) and have to say I really think the hub areas are really charming and surprisingly large (not sprawling or anything, but I thought they were all going to be as small as the Ridgerock Lake hub. Again, not a huge fan of the Timed or Speed Golf (which seem to be the only varieties explored in story mode, other than Cross Country Golf, which is only ruined because they put a timer on that too), but I do like the optional Driving, Approach, & Putting target challenges that open up in each area, and they can get surprisingly tough (it took me about 20 tries to clear the approach challenge in Balmy Dunes).

Standard Golf is super relaxing though & it's fun to hit the links with your Mario favorites. The New Donk City course may be my favorite so far (it seems like they simply imported the map wholesale from Odyssey & slapped some greens on it, instead of making a golf course first that happens to be NDC themed which makes it really interesting to play), though I like the chilled atmosphere of the more plain courses as well.

@Ralizah nice, I had seen some switch footage but not handheld, it looks solid! My copy arrives Saturday, can't wait to try it out

@Ralizah Oh sweet, that does look surprisingly stable! No offence to the Switch, of course, and it's not like the game runs perfectly on PlayStation either, but Traveller's Tales have clearly made an effort to ensure that it's playable, and retains enough of its visual flair. Good to know, thanks!

Finished up Golf Adventure in Mario Golf Super Rush today. Mixed opinions on it overall, mostly because I don't think I'm a big fan of Speed Golf and almost every round was some variation of it (even with Cross Country Golf, I think the biggest problem is that they put a timer on it), however I did find myself enjoying the target challenges in each area (though most were optional), as well as the boss fights. The hub areas were cozy as heck, too.

I thought I was going to get a bit of a break in Wildweather Woods when one of the Toads said they don't play Speed Golf there due to things being so wet, then (other than the three hole practice round) it was all freakin' Speed Golf!?

@RR529 I'm right with you for speed golf, I traded the game in within a week of purchase as I really wasn't a fan. You would think that the moments between shots would be the most boring bit (for a golf party game anyway) but losing you watching the shot removes any stakes, with the stamina limit for running making time between shots actually seem more drawn out and slow.

@R1spam, yeah, luckily you can still play regular golf outside of the story mode, and it really is fun & chill to do so, so I'm still getting mileage out of the game (they've added 5 more courses since the game launched, so it has a total of 11 now, with two of them having "amateur" & "pro" variants, so you could possibly count it at 13 if you wanted to).

I think they added a "Target Golf" mode as well (in addition to the Standard, Speed, & Battle modes), though I haven't tried it yet.

Saudi Arabia acquiring 5% of Nintendo is particularly worrying. They literally banned Pokémon in 2001. Not to mention that they execute people like me. It’s fairly horrific for Nintendo Life to censor any comments pointing this out given that it’s about as on-topic as you get considering they’ve acquired shares in the very company the website is named after.

I'm surprised to see largely whatevs coverage of the Saudi Arabia buying 5% of Nintendo thing. Like, shrug, Saudi Arabia is buying 5% of Nintendo and next the weather. When it should be more like murderous, anti-human rights, anti-woman, anti-gay etc. regime buys 5% of Nintendo and that sucks.

@nessisonett Of course it's on topic. It makes me feel ill, actually. I don't really care about Saudi Arabia's stance on Pokémon, but the country's appalling human rights record and how gay people are executed should repulse us all. When people suggest topics like this have no place in gaming, what they are really saying is they don't want to be reminded of the existence of gay people; and so silencing gay people and allies is really just pandering to that mentality. Also sick of homophobes acting like my existence is some kind of political statement that is up for debate.

@mookysam The Pokémon aside was more pointing out the baffling nature of the investment as it’s hardly like anybody can say that they’re big supporters of Nintendo. Obviously that doesn’t compare to journalists being chopped up.

The Persona games are coming to Switch as well.

Hopefully people will finally shut up about it now.

@Ralizah I can’t believe that Persona fans are finally able to play their first main series Persona game. Whoever would have thought we’d see the day.

@nessisonett I'm just excited that P5 will be playable on a portable device now. Also, this will be the definitive way to experience P3P, IMO.

How is this a thing, but S-E apparently can't get some remastered PS2 games running natively on the system?
