I’m about a third of the way through LM3. I pick it up twice a week and play a floor or two. It feels less stale that way but it’s structure is pretty shallow.

I liken LM3 to something like Captain Toad. Beautiful but simple puzzle lite platforming games branded with Mario assets. I think they’re cute and fun, but there’s definitely no challenge there or long term engagement potential there.

They’re not essential games but they definitely have their charms. It’s just like playing an episodic cartoon. Not great for long sitdowns.

I’d love to play Metroid Prime again on Switch. I have such a fondness for that game’s mood and aesthetic. A release of it some way has to be coming at some point. It just makes sense!

Nintendo seriously has a goldmine of games from the GC/Wii/U/DS era they could remake and charge full price for.

no metroid stuff is maybe my only disappointment with the switch so far. at this point i don’t really have much faith in anything cool happening either

Has anybody had the regular Switch and the Lite and knows if it makes the resolution better on the handheld side for some games on the Lite? I am sort of thinking about a Lite because I like handheld gaming but if the quality is still kinda muddy on some games (DQXI, Xenoblade 2 etc) then it's not really worth it

Let the person who has never wasted money cast the first stone.

I'm not buying one unless it's better for my experience. I like playing handheld and would sacrifice the tv if it meant the handheld looked better, otherwise I won't buy it.

Anyway I'm mostly idly wondering, definitely gonna see what the XL or whatever version is first before buying a system

I think if the Switch Lite could dock it would have been an instabuy just to be able to go out more comfortably with it

like more comfortable to hold? normal switch still fucks with my right hand badly in handheld mode and im much too prideful to get one of those 3rd party attachments for ergonomics

I kind of shudder when I think about how awful my hands are going to be in another 10-15 years from now since I've been typing and playing videogames basically my entire life

yeah it's still a child's toy in adult hands but I haven't been cramping. it's also a lot lighter which makes a difference.

ughhhhh wtf

so I originally bought my switch off my old roommate who impulse-bought it on launch day with botw then decided he didn't actually want to keep it after playing thru. he had created a new nintendo acct to buy the digital v of botw; I just set up a new profile, started my playthru of botw and continued on my merry way buying everything else under my own account

this worked without any issue until the other day when I stupidly decided to remove his profile because he's never going to use it again and I didn't want to keep clicking through the user selection screen

apparently this disabled my botw download, which I guess makes sense in retrospect. the weird part tho: I bought and installed the DLC under my own account. and now I just got his login info and re-added his account, and it still won't let me play with my profile. I can start a new game under his profile, and it shows the dlc content under his profile too (even tho this was bought with my profile), but I cannot access my own save. I was one divine beast away from completing the dirtbike dlc :cry:

Yeah the OG feels so cheap and bulky in handheld mode compared to the lite

I watched the Kotaku/Tim Rogers stream of Pokemon and it was a lot prettier and funner looking than I thought... the previews didn't really make it look good

"Pokémon sends a network discovery packet to each device on port 26037. Roku also listen on that port for LAN based updates so that multiple devices on the same network can update each other. It was an obvious decision. Saved Roku around a quarter million dollars in CDN traffic costs. Roku is popular in the commercial space where it’s often used as a media source to control sometimes 100s of TVs on the same network. It just so happens that Pokémon’s network discovery packet shares the exact same bytes as Roku’s signed bytecode to reboot."
