I have Super Mario 3D All Stars digitally so the joke is very much on you.
Yeah I do as well. But it's not available anymore, I mean.
Played 10 minutes of Metroid, loved it so far. Has the right nostalgia feels with the music. Fun controls
Made it to the third zone in Metroid Dread. This is my first Metroid game. Enjoying it so far, I’ve died a fair number of times. Not sure if it’s gonna beat out Hollow Knight or Ori but we’ll see.
I almost envy the people who never played a Metroid game before this.
I've been playing Metroid since the original on NES. I've probably played and beaten Super Metroid a literal hundred times...and it's making Dread a hundred times harder as a result.
I have almost thirty years of muscle memory playing Super Metroid in me that can't just be switched off over night. Playing a 2D game with a control stick, free aiming with the L-button, switching to missiles with the R-button, parrying with X, sliding! Sliding! I've been at it for hours and I still haven't gotten the morph ball, but I can run, aim-and-shoot, leap and parry, land and slide like a shortstop...and sometimes do it all while looking halfway adequate. Sometimes I hit the buttons at the right moments and what appears on the screen looks as fluid and smooth as peak Bruce Lee. Most of the time, though, I looked like Michael Scott trying to do parkour.
Loving it though. So glad to have 2D Samus on the big screen again.
Yeah you could say that. The one hit kill from the EMMI things can get maddening
I actually deflected once (not counting the tutorial), felt like a god.
Metroid is more fun as you unlock powers. I think the aiming is clunky — feels like an outdated design.
Gotta say my favorite game is watching my OLED Switch do a lap around every FedEx facility in the Midwest en route to Florida.
Picked up Metroid today. Would love to see a Prime redux from GameCube.
Also hope to see Conker’s Bad Fur Day released online. That game was top notch.
On the last boss of Metroid Dread. It is kicking my ass.
Lucky you even got one. Haven’t even come close to getting a pre-order yet
so I am not sure why considering I grew up on nintendo, but metroid was the one 'big' game that I never really played or got into. may have to start at the beginning now
Well not the very beginning. That NES game is hard to enjoy these days. I played it to death as a kid in the late 80s but time has not been good to it.
IMO, play these games if you're trying to get into the 2D Metroid experience:
Samus Returns or AM2R
Though playing Super Metroid after Zero Mission and either Metroid II remake will be tough because there are gameplay additions and quality of life improvements that weren't there in 1994. Still, Super Metroid is the GOAT so have at it.
If you're just playing one old one, Super Metroid
I didn't realize there was a genre of games called "Metroidvania"
I did play the shit out of the first two castlevanias (and then symphony of the night a few years back when it was on xbox arcade)
It’s my favorite type of genre
Fucking $80 a year for Family online expansion pack? Jesus, Nintendo
Not defending it but put 6 people on it and it’s $13.33 per person, or a little more than $1 per month per person.
just got a switch, and wanted to find the cheapest 1-year individual online code, so went with cdkeys for $27, and i'll be damned if they're not on sale for $19.99 right on the nintendo store. damnit
It's about what ps+ costs now for an individual
Nice humble brag admitting that you’re friends with 5 people
I’m just going to hit my kids up for the money or something?
game recs and accessories for gaming on the go?
just realized that ocarina of time is coming with the first new online package
For the low, low price of more than double the current online package
Why would you not?
N64/Sega Expansion is available
Apparently the n64 stuff is terribly thought-out.
Works fine today. Think the issue was last night at ‘launch’.
It sounded like a lot of issues with button mapping and lagging gameplay. Don't see how the way buttons were mapped were fixable unless you got the controller.
Have only played Mario Kart and Zelda. Both felt fine.
I didnt notice any gameplay issues either really
I’m probably going to wait until more games come out to buy the subscription. For anyone that has the N64 controller does it have a USB end that plugs into the base like the switch pro controllers?
Is Luigis Mansion 3 a good game to play co-op with my girlfriend? She plays Mario golf and Mario Kart with me now.
I never played it 2 player but it is pretty fun with just me so I would guess it would be good
Yeah, I think she can play as Goo-igi or PortaPup. Played it with the kid but that was a couple years ago I think.
Started a co-op farm on Stardew with my wife at the beginning of the lockdown and it’s been fun as shit, just saying
Metroid Dread slaps. The controls are so fluid with the pro controller. Harder to play with handheld especially against bosses.
I was really nervous I wouldn't like it after growing up with Super Metroid and its slower pace and less dynamic control options. I was afraid it would be like jumping from Star Fox 64 to whatever the fuck Star Fox for the WiiU was trying to be.
Happy to report the game controls amazingly even for an old guy who is set in his ways. I finished my first playthrough with about 60% items found and 10 hours on the clock. It's a blast. Can't wait to run through it again for a better time.
I'm a PlayStation homer but my buddy is trying to buy a Switch for his kids, where are y'all finding them?
I didn't even know they were supply constrained, though of course it makes sense
Got mine from Walmart a few weeks ago. Shipped in like 2 days.
Got an oled switch from target this morning, and then a PS5 and another oled switch from Best Buy after that. Switch for my brother, the other switch for my friend, and the ps5 for a coworker. What a morning
look at the big bucks on this guy!
The friend was you, until your rude comments!
Finally ran out of storage space. Is there any reason this SD card won't work?
Limited-time deal: SAMSUNG EVO Select Plus Micro SD Memory Card + Adapter, 256GB microSDXC 130MB/s Full HD & 4K UHD, UHS-I, U3, A2, V30, Expanded Storage for Phone, Gaming, Tablet, MB-ME256KA/AM
that’s a good choice. Don’t spend extra on UHS-II because the switch only had a UHS-I bus.
