    Nintendo set a precedent to release a more powerful version with its own exclusive games when the New Nintendo 3DS was announced but it wasn't nowhere near the rumored jump from barely 1080p to some form of 4k, yeah.

    I don't know if actual hardware specs have been posted anywhere, but if literally nothing was improved other than the slightly bigger internal memory then what a joke. Sure the ethernet port, which should have been a launch feature, is nice. But otherwise it's really bizarre to me for Nintendo to go "hmmm, what's really holding the Switch back... ahh! The fact that it has an LCD screen instead of OLED! Definitely that!"

    4k is one thing, but kinda figured they'd at least boost it enough to get decent framerates on their own existing games.

    No 4K upscaling? And only 64 gigs of of storage

    Ouch.

    At the very least I hoped they redesigned the dock so that it makes it near impossible to scratch the screen. Has a battery life that’s not shit, and doesn’t have drift issues.

    Yeah, I thought it was just going to be "the system you need to get so BoTW2 doesn't run like garbage".

    The Switch still has many years of life left and now isn't the greatest time to launch a new model so I don't think the Switch Pro dream is dead yet.

    Edit: spoke too soon, heh.



    Now I can definitely see Nintendo releasing a new system in 2023, with Breath of The Wild 2 releasing on both it and the Switch.

    Zelda hacker arrested by police in Japan for selling modified Breath of the Wild save data:

    Thoughts about this? Should have he gotten arrested for such a thing, even though it was single player? Curious on other's opinions about this.

    Nothing new Japan has had this really dumb law on the book for years.

    I actually read on the IGN preview that they redesigned the dock, to make it's corners smoother and doesn't scratch the screens. Nothing about the drift though.


    I've been thinking of investing on a Switch for the past year or so, and I actually had some hopes for the rumors about the Switch Pro but after Nintendo said they wouldn't show anything during E3 my hope went away and I started thinking about the regular Switch again. But then they announce this new model so I'm thinking about getting it, either on release or Christmas.

    I guess Nintendo was trying to avoid the hype, they just wanted to put out a new model of the existing console but rumors got out so they maybe changed their plans of showing it during E3 and showed it a month later.
    Maybe if they had announced it a couple of weeks before E3 that would deal with the hype. Fans would still get a surprise and they would know not to expect anything more, before rumors got out of control.

    I think this is meant to be something like a DS Lite style of upgrade.

    And for those complaining about the current dock, it seems the new improved one is also gonna be sold separately, so people have the option to "upgrade" their system a bit.

    I've been playing Super Mario 3D all stars and...I now this is sacrilege, but I bailed hard on Super Mario 64. The aged visuals are one thing, but the controls, and the controls in the context of the level design did a number on me (No stop SLIDING Mario goddammit that slope was MINISCULE AAARGH ok lets do a midair kick to cancel the momentum NO DON'T DO A DIVE). By the time I had to look up how to get the giant eel to move (swim close to its face...then up to the surface...then down again???) I pretty much gave up. An important game, but not one I enjoyed playing.

    But to be even more sacriligious, I've moved on to Mario Sunshine and...I'm enjoying myself a quite fair bit? I't reminds me a lot of Odyssey in its construction, and much like with Cappy, I'm having a blast doing flips and using fludd to platform all over the dang place. And cleaning stuff up provides an Okami-like sense of Zen satisfaction for me. I cleaned up the goop and now a lighthouse reappeared! How nice! Good for them!

    You think that's bad, try playing the DS version. Actually it has been a while since I played 64 so maybe the controls really don't hold up.

    Hell yeah man. Sunshine is awesome. People just rag on it I guess cause it's not as good as the other Mario games.

    Well, that and the pachinko puzzle.

    Try getting all blue coins and your feelings on Sunshine might change. Outside of that, I would agree it is a very solid game and was probably my favorite of the 3D marios until Odyssey came about.

    That said I'm also the type of person who had a PS1 and then moved from that to Gamecube and skipped most early N64 games altogether. So for me Mario 64 has always been a pain and a half to revisit and I've never bothered completing it. Sunshine was my first real go at 3D Mario games, so even the painful moments are covered by nostalgia.

    Mario 64 is generally praised by the community (especially speed runners) for having incredibly tight and responsive controls, and being fast-paced with the movement while remaining precise. More so in all these aspects than pretty much any other 3D Mario. That said I agree about the slope physics, but otherwise I think the actual experience and camera holds up super well. I had more issues with the camera in Sunshine lol. Sunshine is great though; people just rag on it for, well, probably what I said. It’s generally slower and less about precision platforming than FLUDD gimmicks.

    I'm one of the few people who will openly admit to not liking Super Mario 64 I tried with the original and the 64 port and just couldn't really get all that much into it. Whereas Sunshine I can fucks with (don't know if it'll hold up especially after plowing through Odyssey).

    Animal Crossing direct coming next month. Looks like they're adding something called "the roost," a coffee shop. It's coming in November. I've been over Animal Crossing since last July, but I'm sure fans are going to be pretty happy since I've been eharing about the Roost for a while.

    KOTOR is coming to the Switch!

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Nintendo Switch Online is getting a new Membership tier that comes with N64 games. Makes sense, but I'm not interested in any of the games.
    edit: They have wireless N64 and Sega controllers for sale and other games are coming including Pokemon Snap and Majora's Mask, which makes it more attractive to me.

    holy shit! They have sega games too!! That's more attractive, lmao. I see Sonic, Eco, Streets of Rage. Pretty damn cool. They're calling it an Expansion Pack and it's coming in Late October.

    An old game called Actraiser Renaissance is coming and it looks pretty cool. It's an HD remake of an old game.
