    I don't play much multiplayer anymore and a lot of my switch gaming is traveling and whatnot. Is smash Bros worth it as a single player? Is it even any fun?

    The RPG board game type like mode to unlock fighters and spirits with a rock paper scissors style spirits to make you stronger is awesome. A ton of variety on the 70 something fighters each match is different from the enemy being giant to the floor being lava.

    BoTW came today.

    It almost doesn’t matter what my expectations would have been, they’re shattered. I may not play another game until summer.

    I picked Shovel Knight back up after giving up on it for a long time. Glad I did because it’s pretty damn charming. It’s brutally difficult though.

    Went back and played a bit of the original Zelda and it’s amazing how many assets they’ve stuck with over the years (obvious graphical fidelity aside)

    I've never played Pokemon except Go on the phone. I really want Let's Go for some reason. Guess out of curiosity more than anything.

    It's probably good for novices. I'm waiting for the core RPG that will be coming in 2019.

    its like a mix of Go and Core right? The whole game is collecting, leveling, and fighting other trainers?

    I don't know what Core means, but it's basically Pokemon Yellow from the gameboy, with a lot of features from Pokemon Go

    Pro controller is similar to a standard console controller. One that comes with the switch is just a small handle for the two joycons

    My first Divine Beast was the Zora one, so I faced the one at the top of the mountain.

    Haven't had a rush like that after beating an enemy in years. Shield-smashing his charge like a boss was awesome.

    The boss battles in that game were incredible but not overwhelmingly frustrating. Like some games have hard battles for the sake of being hard to point it feels unfair. The Divine beasts were just all so well done.

    What I love about BOTW is how easy it is to say "this is a perfect game" and then immediately thing of a dozen things they could do with this engine to make it better.

    Wifey is getting Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and Kirby Star Allies from me for Xmas. I’d planned these purchases about a month ago when she was really getting into platformers and games with lots of collectibles.

    To my surprise, I come home from work yesterday and she’s on the couch hacking a boss in Hollow Knight to bits. Now I’m wondering if I should’ve gotten her Dark Souls and Diablo. :laugh:

    Smash being absolutely epic has solidified my opinion that the Switch is the greatest console ever made by far.

    An example of why BotW astounds me:

    I had finished the Rito Divine Beast, bringing me up to three, and went back to get the Master Sword, so I start thinking I’m hot stuff and have settled into the game. I happen along my second Great Fairy Fountain and try to upgrade my Champion’s Tunic, only to be told I need two shards of Farorn’s horn.

    “Who the fuck is Farorn?”

    To keep a long story short, I stumbled onto the Shrine of Wisdom dragon quest, which led me to realize the green dragon in Lake Hylia was Farorn (Green = Farore = Courage), which led me to the Shrine of Courage, which led me to now looking for the Power Dragon, and 10 hours later, I’m sucked right back into realizing that there’s still a ton I don’t know about this game :laugh:

    Is the power dragon the red one? If so that's the one near the giant dodongo skeleton, if memory serves.

    It is; I remember seeing him before, but I don’t remember the skeleton.

    I’m also trying to get the last few memories, then it’s gonna be Goron time baby.

    i know its like a year after it came out but its been hard for me to gauge from reviews if doom is actually good or not on the switch. im not a huge graphics nerd so having it lower res doesnt bug me much but if there are framerate issues and other problems with performance i'd like to steer clear. fwiw i thought skyrim was great on switch. should i buy or nah? i loved it on pc but didn't play it far and want something to do handheld.

    Yes, as long as you’re cool with the lower resolution. I recall reviewers mentioning some very slight frame rate dips but nothing that affects performance/experience

    I think I fell out of Zelda the first time because I was playing it hand held. Now that I’m playing it on the tv, the size and splendor of the world really come into play.

    I received undertale and katamari Damacy for Christmas. Both games are great. Undertale is a lot funnier than I was expecting. And katamari is pretty much a clone of the ps2 version with improved graphics. This console keeps pulling me back in.

    You just have to get used to them. I played a lot back in the day so it was like riding a bike. It was probably shitty when I first played in 2002
