@Ralizah The game had frame rate issues on PS4, how are they going to make it run decently on Switch? So weird.

@LtSarge The Switch port of 13 Sentinels actually runs better than the PS4 version, so who knows? There was never a reason the game should have run poorly on PS4 to begin with. Maybe being forced to optimize for a weaker platform will actually lead to a more stable-performing version.

Not Switch related, but...

Since I'm on a bit of a 3D kick after my last several trips to the cinema I decided to dig out my old 3DS, until I realized I can't find the charger (it's not turning on). I figured what the heck, it's a crusty old launch model anyways, maybe I should just snag a newer model, it may be discontinued but it shouldn't be rare or anything since the system sold 60-70 million units...

...why in the holy #€¥π are these systems going for $400-$500 used! With that kinda money I could nab an Oculus Quest & save a couple hundred!

Maybe I'll try harder to dig out that charger...

@RR529 Old gaming stuff has been going up in price since the pandemic.

Unfortunately, the 3DS library is composed mostly of exclusives that won't be ported to future consoles, so that's a gigantic library of games that'll become inaccessible until this bubble bursts.

edit: In fairness, though, they're still accessible on sites like ebay. After reading your post, went to ebay, and watched an auction for a "very good" condition XL model tick down in real time. Ended somewhere around $155, which is obviously still expensive for a used model of an old handheld, but still. Also saw some listings for the New XL model for a little over $200.

Where are you trying to find one?

edit 2: Also, you could always... buy another charger.

@Ralizah, @nomither6, I'm so dumb...

Done. I should have the charger by Friday (hopefully that's what the issue is).

I finished Super Mario 3D World the other day for the first time since I played it on Wii U and it hasn't changed my opinion at all. It's still for my money the most underrated 3D Mario game.

(And it's better than Odyssey)

Anyway, I had a proper urge to play Breath of the Wild which I also haven't played since it first launched. Playing it again I'm surprised that my feelings on it haven't changed at all. I still love it, mostly. The weapons still suck. The climbing is a double-edged sword that I don't think really improves the fun of the game at all. The shrines are still mostly excellent. Combat is still rough. Exploration is still fantastic. Atmosphere is top notch. Love cooking. Good.

Picked up Cuphead on Switch about a week ago and I am incredibly excited to play the DLC later today. It's going to be carnage but it'll be an absolute blast. I can't wait to see what new weapons they've added!

Also picked up Death's Door and have played for about an hour so far. Really liking the combat. It's very simple and fun. Will hopefully play some more tonight as well — depending on how long the Cuphead DLC takes me.

Can usually be found doing something. Often seen wearing clothes.

Just wants to play Silksong...

@Ralizah, @nomither6, as a follow up, the good news is that the new charger arrived and did the trick.

Now, the rubber around the circle pad crumbled to bits when I started playing, but the button itself seems to still work fine, so other than that (and that I need to clean the screen), it looks like I can start diving back into it.

I do hope we get some kind of switch pocket eventually. Our crusty old hand held aren’t going to last forever and a chunk of the switches library is suitable to play on the smaller screen.

In a bizarre but pretty cool move, Nintendo essentially recognise gay marriage in Japan while completely bypassing the government. Mario says gay rights I guess.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

@nessisonett This is very neat, can’t say I’m Nintendo’s biggest fan but this deserves huge respect 👍

@nessisonett The fact that such a move is indeed a little bizarre says it all, really. This is a brilliant move on the part of Nintendo, and the same wording should be adopted as policy by all companies, worldwide. It's such a tricky balancing act to strike the right tone, but Nintendo's nailed it here. Respectful without being preachy, cautious without being restrictive. It's a perfect statement.

Next step: some form of representation in their games

To be fair, same sex marriages/relationships are already possible in recent Fire Emblem games (& I believe Miitopia), and anyone can wear any clothing in Animal Crossing New Horizons.

Most Nintendo games (like Mario, Kirby, or Yoshi) are light enough on narrative/characterization in general that I can't think of anything else they could possibly need to do, outside of having an LGBT+ character in a Xenoblade (or possibly Zelda).

@RR529 Well, a gay couple/person in a Mario or Zelda game would go a long way!

And it's cool to hear that Fire Emblem has the option for gay marriage. I don't really play Fire Emblem, so I never knew!

@Kidfried is paper Mario the thousand year door Mario enough for you?

@Ryall Vivian’s only trans in the Japanese and European language versions I think. Good old NoA ‘localised’ that for us.

@nessisonett And let's not forget that Vivian's preferred gender wasn't really acknowledged in-game.

(Some Zelda NPC representation shouldn't be that difficult.)

@Kidfried Yeah, it wasn’t exactly handled great but she’s still a bit of an icon. But then it’s often not handled great across Japanese devs. Atlus games are abysmal for it, even Kanji from Persona 4 relied on tired stereotyping even if the messaging was dead on. Zelda would be an ideal place to start given how diverse the NPCs in BotW are across the different areas of the map. Unless Groose counts as some sort of flamboyant man-child in denial.
