  1. I’m regards to your worries about games being developed exclusively for the newer model, this is most certainly an inevitability. If Nintendo wants to keep up with the PS5 and Series X they need something that can keep up with higher end PS4 and XBone at least. I heard Alien: Isolation on Switch was a great port but had a few graphical downgrades and the Switch port of Witcher 3 is the most unoptimized version by far. These games are 5 years or older. So if they want to keep up the third-party support they need something that can handle at least a decent port. So yes, I’m betting a lot of the higher end big-budget games from major studios will no longer be putting games on the OG Switch, but I’m sure Nintendo will support it alongside the newer model, along with other publishers. It’s important to note that while the New 3DS did have exclusive games, they were console games that had to take severe downgrades just to get it running on a 3DS. The gap between the New 3DS versions of those games are so far away from the gap between, say, the PS4 and PS4 Pro. Essentially, I’m sure third-party support will shrink on the original Switch, but I don’t think it will die and Nintendo will continue to support it for a long, long time alongside the new Switch. I’m actually betting the reason we haven’t heard about the Outer Worlds Switch port is because it can’t run on the existing Switch and will be a launch title for the new one.
  2. Yup, that’s the most generic Japanese F2P mobile game you’ve ever seen. Having DQ imagery in doesn’t make anything different. In fact, that’s how most of these same-y mobile games get so big, literally just the name recognition.
  3. ...and I’ve now resumed Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. It took a moment to get my bearings but I’m back in it. Man, I forgot how satisfying chaining attacks are. The camera in dungeons is ass though.
  4. You know what? I’m seriously considering swinging back to my Wii U version of TMS. It’s a damn good game and I hope the Switch version gives it a second wind.

    Amiibo Discussion

    I forgot Richtor and Dark Samus came out yesterday. Definitely wanna get that gorgeous looking Dark Samus Amiibo tomorrow. Also, apparently Piranha Plant is getting a restock soon woot.
  6. I’m 10 hours behind on podcasts so I’m listening to those while I play a session of Sleepy Dogs, trying to finish everything in the game. I’ve polished off the main game stuff long ago. All that’s left is the repetitive side content in the DLC. They scaled some of these things really poorly. In Year of the Snake, I need to arrest 200 criminals, and generally, they spawn 3 at a time in random locations all over the map. But this and maybe two more side missions are all that’s left in that, and then I’m basically done.
  7. They got some legit names for Weathering With You but GKids frequently gets known actors for their movies. Netflix may or may not try to do the same but experience shows they probably won’t. They simply do not have Tom Holland money, at least not for some anime movie they’ll dump on their site. One thing’s for sure; Stephanie Sheh and Michael Sinterniklaas will be probably play major characters haha.
  8. It’s the littlest finger on your hand. I’m not playing Animal Crossing but since we’re doing friend codes, here’s mine: 6754-5811-1898.
  9. I’ve heard of someone having a “come to Jesus moment.” But if someone was going to someone, as the teacher, the student goes to you. I’m just being willfully difficult at this point haha.
  10. Shouldn’t Jesus have gone to you, since you’re the teacher, not the other way around?
  11. A lot of video game YouTubers have been talking about XI and how much they love it. That’s the benefit of previous games not being required to understand the story or being directly tied to it. I think I even saw BeatEmUps went to Japan and was specifically seeking out Dragon Quest stuff, which resulted in a video where he talks about Dragon Quest stuff, of course. It’s honestly almost like a strategic, targeted strike. A Switch port of a lauded PS4 game that has enough features to make it worth it for those that played the PS4 version, timed with Builders 2 and the Hero’s introduction in Smash. That crazy long demo went a long way in producing goodwill and excitement and, it’s length being so irregular for a demo, it got in the news just for that. Then they through up the original trilogy of games. And now a movie on Netflix. Within the span of a few months of each other.
  12. Legacy of Goku II and Buu’s Fury were my favorite versions of the DBZ story. I actually experienced the entire Cell Saga through Goku II, I didn’t know about anything that happened beforehand it was great. Still love those games and the soundtracks are strangely memorable for licensed GBA games.
  13. Hasn’t the DBZ story been told a million times? That’s what got me not caring about this new game; there’s only so many times a person can experience the same story.
  14. Dragon Quest has reached peak saturation. If it doesn’t finally find a bigger audience after all the stuff that we’ve gotten in the last year, it never will.
