that looks bad. The stuff you build doesn't even look cool. I got the vehicle kit for my kid and putting it together was extremely fun, just the steering wheel section had all kinds of cool levers and shit that used rubber band tension to spring back when you pulled it.

I was thinking about Goldeneye and I'm not sure they could do it because of the IP.

Who owns the rights to Bond now?

I think if the MS rumours are true we're more likely to see Perfect Dark.

when the xbla update of goldeneye was being put together 11 or so years ago everyone was in agreement over rights and then nintendo pulled out at the last minute and we got perfect dark xbla instead. if nintendo's the only limiting factor it could happen this time.

Sounds like it was being put together by MS/rare if it was just gonna be an xbla port no? Being the least involved studio who declined doesn't tell me it places them as the front runners to bring it back. Knowing Nintendo they would just ask to use their already made perfect dark port lol

You guys are jumping the gun thinking Turok, which got steam ports in 2017, is signaling the arrival of N64 games when we're still waiting on 1st party snes games lol.

it was joint agreement to allow rare to do the xbla port while the original would hit the wii virtual console. nintendo pulled out at the last second. i'm not saying it's likely we'll ever see it just that i don't think the IP rights are holding it back at this point

there's also a MAR10 sale on march 10 - https://www.nintendo.com/games/sales-and-deals

can get mario party, odyssey, kart, tennis, or new super mario bros u for $40 digital at amazon, target, best buy, and walmart

just bought steamworld digs 1 and 2. i'm almost at the end of dig 1 and it's fun but relatively short and easy and feels like some old flash game i played.

Yeah dig 1 is very much an extended flash game's worth of content tbh. Worth a play for $3, wouldn't pay more than $5

Aces is the only switch game I've traded in. It loses its appeal pretty quickly

Better to leave Aces to the side and hit up that Mario/Rabbids Gold Edition sale, my dude

Hope you're using a pro controller


I beat the game playing entirely handheld, dunno why a pro-controller would be key for DS?


the joycon joysticks are absolute shit and really made it impossible for certain parts of the game (anor londo plank walking while getting shot at, sen's fortress, etc). Granted, my left joystick was worn the fuck out after BOTW but still. Pro controller made all the difference.

What makes Steamworld Dig 2 better than most Metrovanias (e.g. Hollow Knight or Guacamelee)?

it is definitely not better than hollow knight but it is very solid

Steamworld Dig 2 is nowhere as deep or challenging as Hollow Knight but it is a lot of fun

I sort of think that the devs benefited by being 3DS and Wii U developers and so were early on the switch so they did well with a smaller game pool. I wonder how they will make their games really stand out when they aren't one of the only third party games on the eshop

steamworld dig 2 is a lot of fun but while it's not necessarily a short game it does seem to abruptly end at some point that felt off.
