diablo has online multiplayer? that sounds p fun...


diablo is fun but it is repetitive. it's perfect for me when i need to chill out. it's repetitive i guess if you do "adventure mode" and smash through neph riffs rather than "campaign mode" which has the lore/story/npc interactions. i figured if i was going to do a campaign mode game i would get one that is better for that than diablo?????

all i have for the swithc is botw, links awakening, odyssey, and mario kart 8

i didnt even know about that mana collection. always had a soft spot for final fantasy adventure, but i never played more than the first like 10 mins of secret of mana. is the newly-translated sequel supposed to be good? can i play these local multiplayer with My Wife?


yeah i feel like i'm not really utilizing this system, it's basically just a Zelda Machine atm. also should probably snag shovel knight, luigi's mansion (?), hollow knight, smash, and mario maker.


Yeah you can do local multiplayer on Secret of Mana (I don't think you can do online multiplayer.) I remember you found the spell casting annoying with two players, which it probably is, so if you still find it to be a struggle I suggest playing solo cause it's a great great game.

Also Mario Maker 2 is perfect. It's endless Mario. There's never been a greater price value in the history of commerce.

ah ha yeah, doesn't the menu pause all players gameplay, no matter who does it? so it's like constantly pausing?

yeah definitely seems worth it otherwise

lol, yeah, but when you're playing solo it's not an issue, and it's sometimes welcome during boss fights where you're strategizing.

Agreed that Tropic Freeze is an all-time great, but NSMBU is tragically slept on --- game has some fantastic level design. It's just too bad it has that dogshit recycled art style

My haul

Bomberman
Contra collection
Castlevania collection
Hyperlight Drifter
Killer Queen Black

Wish I had read more about those Konami collections before I picked them up, because they are not comprehensive at all. I’ll just consider them penance for all my years of pirating roms. Bomberman feels like they fixed a bunch of things that weren’t broken, but should be fun with a crowd. Killer Queen seems like it’ll be great, I just need more friends. Haven’t touched hyperlight drifter yet. Overall, instant regret with my haul :P

I've found the konami collections perfect for on-the-go-gaming
But there's no way I'd pick them up on xb1/ps4/pc

Playing and completing Final Fight with my daughter was fun, though I forgot how questionable some of the character designs are.

Also decided to fire up Breath of the Wild again after over 8 months of not touching it. Found the giant horse and the horse god with help from her.

Pretty good daughter bonding over the switch time.

yeah i just looked up those castlenavia collection today and was bummed it's not on physical

though

does anyone else find it particularly annoying to change cartridges on this? like way more than when i need to change a disc on my ps4 i'm like "ughhhh" when i realize i need to put a new game in. might invest in one of those multi-game cases like the club nintendo 3ds thing, or it looks like some etsy-ers make 3d-printed cartridge-slot-things that clip onto the switch dock (i mostly play docked fwiw)

Yep, it's a big reason why I just slapped a 128 gig SD card in there and just started downloading my games instead.

Yeah my kid is doing a playthrough of BOTW right now, it was a little too complex for him at 5 but he's almost 8 now and he's absolutely obsessed and has already discovered more than I did on my playthrough a couple years ago.

not surprising at this point, but crosscode has been delayed until sometime next year: https://kotaku.com/the-console-ports-for-crosscode-one-of-last-year-s-exc-1840172122
