  1. Dragon Quest Builders or Minecraft?

    I want to add a 'creative' game to my Switch collection. I have never played Minecraft, but obviously it is the biggest game in the genre. Yesterday I played the DQB demo for about an hour and I enjoyed it, but as it is story based I am wondering if it will have the replay ability of Minecraft? What about a Lego game? I see the Switch has a couple, and I have never played a Lego game either... Recommendations?
  2. Planet Alpha announced for Switch

    This just popped up on my recommended YouTube list. The trailer doesn't give a lot away, but I like the art style.
  3. My best friend surprised me with a switch today. I'm part of the family now fellas.
  4. Blizzard are just being a bunch of dickwads with their coyness.

  6. Nintendo Labo - coming 4/20

    So this was on my Facebook feed... Any ideas? Nintendo Labo https://labo.nintendo.com/ WTF!! Looks cool! With thanks to AndrewDean84: http://nintendoeverything.com/nintendo-labo-kits-apparently-not-mandatory-cardboards-pattern-will-be-offered-for-free-cartridge-still-needed/ THE TEMPLATES ARE FREE TO DOWNLOAD.
  7. Switch Online service (what's going on???)

    One of the things I was hoping to hear about in a January direct was the Switch's paid online service - which we know pretty much nothing about. Wasn't it supposed to start around this time? I liked the stuff we saw in the "Mini" Direct, but that can't be "it" for January, surely? There are so many things left unanswered. Netflix, Youtube, Browser, Virtual Console, Paid Online.... I hope we get a "Proper" Direct to clear some of this up soon - we will right? Another "Nindies" Direct would be good too. Some of my favourite games on Switch are indie titles.
  8. Mario Tennis Aces

    Trailer is here: Looks great, highlight of the Direct for me.
  9. This version includes all content from the Wii-U and 3DS versions of the game.
  10. OK, raise your hand if you thought that it was gonna be a Switch case with a hammer & sickle design on it? Go ahead and admit it - no one is gonna laugh at you! This is the most unusual article about the Switch that I've read so far. As someone who has more than a cursory knowledge of Marxism, the author didn't exactly convince me that Nintendo subverted the capitalist dialectic, but I give him points for effort!

  12. Since launching on March 3, 2017, the Switch sold over 4.8 million consoles in the U.S. In comparison, during the Nintendo Wii’s first ten months, over 4 million consoles were sold in the U.S.
  13. As we come to the end of 2017, what games did you pick up this year for Switch? Are you happy with what you have? What is on your wishlist? I got my Switch at launch, and since then I have got the following... Zelda Fast RMX World of Goo Splatoon 2 Graceful Explosion Machine Mario and Rabbids Sonic Mania Stardew Valley Golf Story Steamworld Dig 2 Of those, my only regret is World of Goo. I bought it because I loved Little Inferno on Wii U, and this was from the same devs. I just can't get into it. I thought I was going to get Mario for Christmas, but I got eshop credit which I am using for other stuff. I want Mario physical, not on eshop. I also want to get Skyrim and Doom, but I am in no hurry. I still have plenty to play.

  17. **UPDATED** Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda has made a number of remarks regarding the company's ongoing Nintendo Switch support. This thread will be used to track all such remarks, and will be updated each time a new piece of information is revealed. Quotes from Square Enix StaffFrom a quote in MCV magazine (Dec 2017): Yosuke Matsuda: "The Switch is a very attractive and important platform for us. As a games company, having that breadth in our portfolio is very important, with the Switchbeing such a unique piece of hardware." Yosuke Matsuda: "For gamers, Nintendo is very closely attached to the JRPG, because so many of them came out back in the Super Nintendo days." Yosuke Matsuda: "One of our other big initiatives is to get as many of our past titles available via digital releases. Among theyounger generations of gamers, you've got lots of people out there who may have heardof our past titles but have never had an opportunity to play them. So we think that programmer of porting and transferring the older titles over to newer platforms, such as the Switch, is very important. So that people get awareness of our back catalogue. Just straight ports isn't cutting it, we need to update those and modernise them to make something that works for modern gamers too." From first half financial results Q&A(Nov 2017): Q: Where do you intend to prioritize allocation of your development resources going forward? Yosuke Matsuda: We base our development resource allocations on the unique attributes of each platform. In particular, Nintendo Switch makes it easier for us to leverage our back catalog of assets and expertise, so we want to be proactive in creating new IP and rebooting past titles for that platform. Q: What do you think of Nintendo Switch, and how are you approaching development efforts for it? Yosuke Matsuda: Nintendo Switch is seeing rapid uptake, and we welcome the arrival of such a platform. We intend to be proactive in our development efforts given that it’s a platform that is well suited to the mid-sized titles at which we excel. A Summary of Square Enix's Switch Strategy Be proactive in creating new IP on the Switch Use Switch to facilitate the development of mid-sized titles (Octopath Traveller is an example of this) Be proactive in "rebooting" past IP and bringing older games to the platform Modernize these older titles wherever possible to help introduce them to new users No restrictions on what IP can be used for these mid-sized games and Switch development Develop multiplatform games on Switch wherever possible Switch Games Announced / Released Thus FarReleased: Dragon Quest X, I Am Setsuna, Spelunker Party, Dragon Quest Heroes 1 + 2, Lost SphearAnnounced: Dragon Quest XI, Dragon Quest Builders, Dragon Quest Builders 2, Octopath Traveller, Romancing SaGa 2 RemasterNote: Square achieve their mid-range output by collaborating with a number of external development studios in Japan. These include: Hexadrive, Matrix Software, h.a.n.d., Silicon Studio, and now PlatinumGames, Acquire and two new Square Enix subsidiaries: Tokyo RPG Factory and Studio Istolia. https://issuu.com/newbayeurope/docs/mcv931_11th_december http://nintendoeverything.com/square-enix-interested-in-bringing-past-games-to-switch/

  20. https://gonintendo.com/stories/296473-steamworld-dig-2-sells-nearly-ten-times-as-much-on-switch-than-st Jim Sterling has been reporting for a couple of weeks now how Indie devs are falling out of love with Steam, due to the poor handing on Valves part, and the introduction of Steam Direct. You can state the gamers are starving for games on the Switch, but it might also be because the eShop is packed full of bullshit like steam is, so gamers can easily find games they're looking for.
