I’m buying the new upgraded model Switch in August. Who should I main in Smash Ultimate? Never played but picked it up.
The only reason I have a switch is because the early models are hackable and I can pirate all games,other than that,is not really worth it.
dang nintendo still has that?>>46282
god 3d printed stuff always looks like shit. i bet they are charging $20 for that.
A family person got a second one to crack and is letting me use the other. I bought myself Genso Wanderer and he's not permitted to play it. I'm going to steal the switch when I move out
any thoughts on the new model? i've heard the screen is a bit worse, but otherwise looks like a better deal.
the main draw for me is a mobile slay the spire, being able to play that game in bed and such would be amazing. i never understood why they don't put it on android, it seems like it would be a perfect fit.
it would be cool to finally try out breath of the wild too, after hearing so much praise for it the past few years.

Controls and it probably wouldn't run well on avrage phones and tablets. Plus most android ports have to be built from the ground up which takes money and time, which due to the difference in market isn't financially worth it for most games.
you think slay the spire isnt suited for android? to me it seems like a perfect fit
the controls would translate perfectly to touch, its not exactly a graphically demanding game. and im not sure but it might be built in java. it has a linux port and people have even got it running on openbsd
Softmodded CFW on my switch. Any singleplayer experiences worth pirating? Already have BOTW
no, all your work for nothing
>>46791>all your work
it was just dragging and dropling a folder with a $2 thingy plugged in
more like the nintendo bitch
Just use the fucking emulator.
Is super Mario odyssey any good?
i bought a switch for only four games.
rune factory 4 special, rune factory 5, animal crossing new horizons and monster hunter generations ultimate.
i desperately look around for other games worth playing but everything else looks like shit and piss. it's probably the worst game library i've ever seen, not counting joke consoles like the Tiger Hyperscan.
but, these farming games that you can play for 500000 hours will make it worth it.
me again. i ended up selling my Switch after how horrible New Horizons turned out to be. i bought a pet hamster with the money.
for me it's stardew valley, puyo puyo, wargrove, baba is you and automachef. waiting for battle brothers
i like new horizons
It's the only reason I bought the switch. Although the experience was kind of ruined because I played the whole game on the stupid tablet; too lazy to connect it to my dusty old TV. >>49922
How's your hamster doing wizzie?
It's my primary gaming device, because I'm a casual. Playing Valkyrie Chronicles 4 at the moment
What games are best on the Switch?
I don't have one yet, but want to get one. Thinking of stocking up on Jap games I can get for retail price now from Amazon, before the price for them will probably skyrocket. Anyone here like switch for Jap games like JRPG/visual novels? Is it good experience, I had xbox one and traded it in for xbox series s, but I'm starting to regret it, western games bore the hell out of me now, last time I played JRPGs seriously was good ol ps2 era.
Thinking of doing surveys to earn wizbucks to buy games off Amazon, figure if I do enough to get 10 dollars a day, thats enough to buy a full price game a week easy, as games are 60-70 here in Australia. I just need to find the motivation to do surveys for five hours a day. If I had a job I could just buy them, but I'm not sure I want to waste money on games anymore, I feel better if I just waste my time doing surveys, I have two laptops anyway so I can watch anime on one and do surveys on the other, I'm just lazy.
See if you can get a hackable switch on ebay, it might be a bit more expensive, but you could pirate all the games and save money on the long run, that's what I did.
And most Jarpigs and VN's are already on PC, I don't know why you should play them on switch.
Pick a character that you like. That's how I do it for every fighting games.>>48091
It's cool but worse than every other 3D Mario games imo. You're rewarded for the simplest tasks like groundpounding a slope or talking to an npc.>>51945
I really liked Lugi's Mansion 3. Bayonetta 2/Mario 3D World if you haven't already played them.
I own a switch. not sure about the model but I think it's the standard one (with the blue and red controllers?) I mainly play Pokemon on it atm. is the pro controller worth the money?
I hate myself for having wasted money on one. Bought one to hack it and have never played on it.
The pro controller is expensive but worth it if you play docked a lot.
I think the switch is great, it’s probably the console I use the most. Currently playing a ton of Slay the Spire on it. That game is addictive.
Really? Isn't buying pets pretty much the same as burning money?>>52685
I changed my mind, I'm gonna stick with my xbox series s for now, I don't really care much for Japanese games nowdays, besides some like octopath traveler are coming to xbox. I think collecting physical games is kind of a waste of money/space, I plan on selling my physical games collection, I have hundreds of mainly ps2/xbox 360 games I no longer play might as well get some money from them, but I'm lazy and its a pain in the ass to list all the games.
>>52932>Isn't buying pets pretty much the same as burning money?
As opposed to buying videogames, a sound investment.
splatoon 2 and fire emblem three houses are good.>>48091
One of the most boring games i've ever played. Go play galaxy instead.
I just got one and hacked it. Touhou spell bubble is fun and relaxing. Mario odessy is fun in short bursts
All 3d marios are collectathons mixed with platforming, but odyssey has the least enjoyable platforming of all of them. The city world was cool tho
I beat Pokemon Sword recently and was pleasantly surprised at how many deeply established Pokemon tropes the game broke. They made a hundred changes from older games and they're universally positive
Currently NEO the world ends with you, fun as fuck game.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is getting 48 more tracks over the course of two years starting this March. It'll cost $25 and they're all remakes of past tracks but they'll be playable online so it should breath some life in to the game. This means MK8 will have been the "current" Mario Kart game for 10 years when counting the Deluxe release as just a port of the WiiU version.
Games as a service..
Mario kart 8 is an awful game. All the weird gravity stuff makes tracks confusing to race on. It would be fine to drive up the walls on big curves but many of them are total changes you can't really see coming. All the boat, flying and whatever shit is just a mess too. They should make Diddy kong racing if they want to do all the different vehicles and cut the bullshit.
>>56587>Games as a service..
What has that got to do with anything? "Games as a service" refers to games that can be rendered completely unplayable at the whim of the publisher. When you buy MK8, you're paying for a functional singleplayer experience that can be played on any Switch. The global online servers may go down in the future, but local wireless will still work whoch is the same experience. The map packs are just DLC being dished out over time.
>It would be fine to drive up the walls on big curves but many of them are total changes you can't really see coming.
Any racing game requires the player to memorize the track and to know how to read signs. The areas that switch to hover and water mode are marked with different boosters. Also hover mode doesn't handle different, it's just an artistic choice needed to explain why the karts don't fall off the track when going inverse.
>cut the bullshit.
Mario Kart was always about crazy obstacles, weapons, and tracks. "bullshit" is why it's so fun. Get good.
that's his real name?
No, his real name is K. Koopa
Games as a service doesn't just mean online only. It's the entire model of making a base game and padding out content as a constant update with season passes and drip feeding DLC.
>Mario kart has always been about crazy X
No it hasn't. It didn't become a gimmick fest until the Wii. It doesn't need 15 different vehicle modes, customisable karts which slowly unlock and fucking with the gravity. In every other Mario kart you could see the track ahead of you and how you had to turn. In 8 you don't because it can go any where it wants to. Which makes it more about autism than skill as a racer.
>>56592>It's the entire model of making a base game and padding out content as a constant update with season passes and drip feeding DLC.
No, that's never had anything to do with "games as a service", like at all. What you're complaining about has its own name, but even that doesn't really apply here because MK8 Deluxe was a fully finished and functional game at release that didn't advertise any future content. This is just an optional expansion pack. Nintendo stated, at least where Virtual Console games are concerned, that they release new content on a in small increments on a set schedule so they have time to fix bugs and focus on a small handful of games instead of dropping dozens of releases and then scrambling to fix things. Most of the 48 promised tracks are probably not even complete yet as they're full-scale remakes so they can't release them all if they wanted.
>In every other Mario kart you could see the track ahead of you and how you had to turn.
I can do this in MK8 as easy as I can in any other, if not easier than all of the 2D games. Plus a good bunch of the tracks in MK8 are from the past games…
MK8 was not released fully finished. The deluxe version wasn't even fully finished if they're adding more content on afterwards.
>Nintendo rehashing more stuff and charging you for it.
>Quality virtual console
Literally worse emulation than the gamecube had. They released garbage and spread it as thinly as possible because fanboys will let them shit in their mouth if they put a nintendo seal of approval sticker on their ass cheek.
Please don’t post like you’re on /v/.
I haven't played a lot of virtual console shit, but I remember something about how Mother 2 VC isn't playable on a 2DS and I know that is complete bullshit because I put Mother 2 with an emu skeleton on my hacked 2DS and it played fine. Just one little example of artificial gating by Nintendo. Looking at the mountain of accessories for Game Boy is a bigger case.
I wish they (not Nintendo, emu developers) would figure out how to emulate the HYP mic already. Miss yelling expletives at that little rat and lost all my original N64 shit from my parents divorcing.
So i want to get a switch oled…. can i run custom firmware to run pirated games or am i SOL and too late
last time i checked only the first generation units, and not all of them at that were hackable, which is why many used to recommend to buy a used one
OLED is a gimmick unless you're playing in sunlight. If you're playing on a TV especially there's no point. Like anonabove said only the first generation, and the first few hundred thousand serials, have a direct hardware root to the read-only boot manager which guarantees eternal CFW support with zero-detection if you still want to play online (with purchased games). They can be found used for the same price as a new OLED model.
I can't wait for Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and Splatoon 3. Probably the only games I'm looking forward to this year. XC2 and Splatoon 2 were games I could just play to chill out and get comfy so I hope it's the same here. Something about the aesthetic just really did it for me.
I'm honestly kind of worried Splatoon 3 won't have enough new stuff…
So excited 1 and 2 were amazing.. the ost and story I can’t wait
I feel like playing Xenoblade Chronicles, anyone tried the Remastered switch version on an emulator?
Xenoblade Chronicles 3, anyone getting it this Friday? I can’t wait it’s my favourite series of all time and the only game I am about to buy and play on launch day.
Thanks. The faces do look worse but I don't think the second pic is such a big deal? The QoL features are the only thing keeping me from just emulating the wii version on dolphin, I can't really be bothered to keep up with what switch emulator is best and messing around with the settings and what not. I do believe I have the hardware for it but it's too much of a hassle for now.
oh snap is that andrew? xd
