About Me

  1. Hey fellow Patchers, Animal Crossing Question here? I've always wanted to find a game my wife could really get into and enjoy playing. She can't play any "Games" where there are quick movements, shifting cameras, bosses, anything technical in anyway! I was looking at Animal Crossing for Switch. She loves those mindless candy crush games, games like fishdom, and clock maker, most all of those jewel quest games, stuff like that! CCrush being her most played game. Of course to me, non of these games are gaming, at least to me. I would love this boards opinion on weather or not you think she could get into this game? She does love simple games where you design your own town and property, moving lamps, adding fish tanks, planting trees etc. What game was in on facebook where you did all that? Townsville or farmville? something like that, she loved that game. I've also read that it takes a lot of time to really be able to build what you want, though this might fall into her own hands because she needs time to learn how something navigates right? This seems like a perfect fit but I'm unsure. Is this way more complicated than say Farm Ville of FB? It can't be complicated in any way though...lol this dragon game on her phone from the play stor that you drag stuff with your finger and collect eggs to merge into dragons with a tiny feel of civilization as in layout of land? She seems to enjoy things require daily tasks if in moderation. Like how Farmville had her harvesting tree stuff in a timely fashion. She did love to show me hew farm all the time, she was proud of it. so to end this! Simple, run around and build, collect, vision and creation must be very easy to understand. Thanks guys really so . . Is the THE GAME for here or what? Recommend or not? Thanks, if it's a yes I'm buying it right then for her and have my fingers crossed!
  2. Nintendo Direct To Air Tomorrow, Wednesday 17th February WWW.NINTENDOLIFE.COM And it's 50 minutes long! - Nintendo has revealed that a brand new Nintendo Direct will air tomorrow, and this time it's a... Almost an hour long! Hopefully get some news about Smash DLC. Maybe new amiibo? And some Prime 4 info, damn it! LOL Link to the YouTube Stream:
  3. SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium rated for Switch in Korea - Gematsu WWW.GEMATSU.COM The Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea has rated SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium for Switch. SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium is a Neo Geo Pocket Color title… Had no idea that NGPCS was a thing. 🤔
  4. The Good: Higher resolution for all three games and widescreen for Sunshine. Joycon pointer support for Galaxy. The Bad: Only available until March 2021. Sunshine isn't 60fps when it shouldn't have been difficult. (see emulation patches) No AI upscaled textures, or a widescreen mode for Mario 64. The Ugly: No Mario Galaxy 2. Arguably, the best one.
  5. So it was announced / discovered that Nintendo is replacing their multiplayer servers that run on a nearly 18 year old system with a new one starting with Monster Hunter Rise Nintendo Is "Replacing Its Multiplayer Server System" Dating Back To The Wii U And 3DS Era WWW.NINTENDOLIFE.COM A long time coming - Let's be real, Nintendo's online service hasn't always been the best. While it's always worked, it ha...
  6. #1 handheld of all time! Topped the list of 19 other competitors. Check it out: CLICK! The greatest handheld games consoles – ranked! | Games | The Guardian WWW.THEGUARDIAN.COM During lockdowns, handhelds have come into their own: here’s our Top 20, from Gizmondo to Nintendo PSP and Vita also ranked high on the list. Have y’all played all or any of these systems before? Which is your favorite? Agree or disagree with the placement of Switch? I probably would have ranked Game Boy higher, but that’s likely my nostalgia talking, haha.
  7. This just popped up on YouTube. Interesting for those that enjoy this stuff.
  8. Why do we give Nintendo a pass for not making a powerful console like Sony and Microsoft? Why do we let them be different for the sake of being different? A triangular wheel is different, but that doesn't make it useful. If Nintendo wants to get third party support, they need to make a powerful console. It's as simple as that.
  9. Does it have a service similar to Game Pass or Playstation Now? And can I sign into my profile from my Nintendo account that's on my son's Switch?

  11. Can anyone recommend some good Switch point and click adventure games? Got my mom a switch snd she loved the Professor Layton games on the DS, so I’m looking for something along those lines. She doesn’t play a ton of games, right now just a ton of Animal Crossing, so nothing too complex. I know there’s a Grimm Fandango Remaster but it’s been forever since I played it and I can’t remember has accessible that game is. Any help is appreciated, thanks guys!
  12. How is Nintendo still successful when they're consistently behind the times? Has any other company been so behind the times and still been so successful?
  13. Like all Nintendo fans, I was interested in the Switch from the first announcement trailer, but I've never been one to get a console at release, so I initially planned on waiting. Then, due to a wedding, returning to higher education and having a baby, the idea of getting one kept being pushed back in favour of more sensible things (a new bathroom, fixing the car, paying for the dogs vets bills etc). But it finally felt like the right time to get one - now I have a full time job, the house is in a reasonable state, most things are taken care of - and I was hoping there would be a few Black Friday deals to help out. Well, in the UK at least, that didn't happen. There are a few games, but for the console the only thing that was reduced was the number of console actually available. In fact, due to national lockdown, there wasn't actually anywhere within 50 miles that I could go and collect one after buying online. So, I've opted for the classic next day delivery and tomorrow I should hopefully be the recipient of a Neon Switch, Ring Fit Adventure and Super Mario Odyssey. Now the main point of the thread, what games should I be looking at straight away? I've already played (and nearly finished) Breath of the Wild on Wii U and I have my eyes on Smash Bros, Mario Kart 8 (despite playing a huge amount again on the Wii U), Luigi's Mansion 3 and maybe Splatoon 2...but what else should I add to my list?
  14. https://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1srfu4r Several competitive Smash players have verified these claims.
  15. Nobody: Absolutely no one: Not a single soul: Me: "Did someone want to talk about the Nintendo 3DS? Let's talk about the Nintendo 3DS! Alright!" So. It's 2020. Nintendo has officially discontinued their stereoscopic 3D handheld system, the fairly successful Nintendo 3DS. I really dug this portable, and it had a pretty good run! Sold around 75 MILLION units over its lifetime, had a ton of great hardware revisions, and most importantly, tons of great SOFTWARE. Both games and applications, but I wanna talk about games. And while the 3DS library has many, many great games on it, I feel like it was missing a small handful of titles that would have made it feel really complete. (I mean, it IS complete already, but these would have been nice feathers in the 3DS's proverbial cap) What games are those, you ask? Here's my list of games I feel the Nintendo 3DS SHOULD HAVE had (and almost did!): 5.) Advance Wars I think this goes without saying, but let's talk about the elephant in the room. The 3DS needed an new entry in the Advance Wars series. It seemed Nintendo was pretty much laser-focused on making sure Intelligent Systems made the Fire Emblem franchise as successful as possible last generation. And while that worked (definitely worked!)...what cost did it take to make that happen? Apparently, the silence (or death?!) of the Advance Wars games. Which is a shame, because the series was such a great fit for the handheld platform. It worked fantastically on the original DS (twice!) but apparently it was not in the cards for the 3DS. And unfortunately, no third party or indie developer would make an Advance Wars-style game until Wargroove, which came out after the 3DS was really a "thing" anymore. It's a bummer, but at least 3DS is backwards compatible with Dual Strike and Days of Ruin. By the way, if you guys get the chance, check out Intelligent System's other turn-based strategy game, Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. - it's actually pretty good! 4.) Assassin's Creed Yeah, this would have been a fun handheld game! And for anyone out there that thinks, "Well, the 3DS is kind of a kid's system, would an M-rated game like this really work on this?" First of all, shut up. And second? There were already TWO Assassin's Creed games on the 3DS's predecessor! And don't tell me it wouldn't have been COOL AS HELL to climb up a big building or tower and look down on the city in MIND-BOGGLING STEREOSCOPIC 3D! The sense of height and scale would have been incredible, I think. Funny enough, Ubisoft was actually developing a game in this series for the 3DS (called Assassin's Creed: Lost Legacy), but apparently the size/scale of the game got "too big" for the handheld, and eventually a lot of the ideas got reshaped and then used in Assassin's Creed: Revelations. So...I guess the silver lining here is, we may not have gotten the game on 3DS, but at least a version of the game did come out (on consoles) so it's not like we missed out on the game entirely. Glass half full! 3.) Call of Duty It's really odd how few FPS games actually came out on 3DS. The stereoscopic 3D seems like it would have been a shoo-in for the system, but...apparently NOT! Which is really a missed opportunity for Activision. A 3DS-specific Call of Duty game would have been an ENORMOUS fish in an incredibly small pond. And again, anyone saying a game like this wouldn't "fit" on 3DS...first of all, look at all the CoD games on the original DS, and also, look at all the other M-rated games on 3DS like Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, Splinter Cell and Ghost Recon (though that last one might be T...but whatever). Really strange this never happened, and I'm still a bit baffled as to why. 2.) F-Zero Of course, of course. We're all waiting for the next entry in the F-Zero series. It kind of goes without saying, but I figured I'd say it anyway. This should have happened. Either a port of F-Zero GX, or (preferrably, IMO) a remake of the N64 game, F-Zero X. That game needs a face-lift, and the 3DS would have been a PERFECT spot for that to happen. I'm not entirely sure what developer GREZZO was doing between the release of Ocarina of Time 3D and Majora's Mask 3D, but is it too wild of an idea that they could have spent some time doing a remake of ONE more N64 game for the 3DS? Or maybe Monster Games? Or heck, let Shin'en make it. They clearly WANT to make an F-Zero game, and they clearly had a firm grasp of the 3DS architecture. Ah well, another missed opportunity, IMO. 1.) Grand Theft Auto Alright, if any of the previous suggestions didn't cause too many "pah! how outlandish!" remarks, this one might. It may seem like the most controversial, but when you think about it? It's not, really. The Grand Theft Auto series doesn't *seem* like it has much history with Nintendo, but that's usually because people only think of Nintendo CONSOLES. But on handhelds? The truth is, Grand Theft Auto has a LONG history with Nintendo. The series had appeared on EVERY. SINGLE. NINTENDO. HANDHELD. As far back as the original Game Boy, all the way up to the original Nintendo DS. The 3DS had the horsepower to make a game like this (open-world, free-roaming games like LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins and DRIVER: Renegade are proof of that) and it wouldn't have been too out of place for Rockstar to release this. So why didn't it happen? My thoughts are multifold. A: The company just pretty much gave up on handheld systems. I mean, they didn't even bother to put a GTA on the Playstation Vita. B: Rockstar had basically put the GTA series on hold during this era. Think about it; a new GTA hasn't been made since Grand Theft Auto V - TWO generations ago! (yeah, two generations, the new Xbox and Playstations are out now, it counts!) And finally, C: By the time Rockstar got around to making a portable game in the series, they put it on the always-online mobile platform where...I guess they felt they could make more money. Which probably is true, if I'm being honest with myself. Still, would've been cool to see an entry of this series on 3DS. SO! Those are my thoughts. What are yours? And thanks for indulging me and letting me talk/vent about the 3DS...a system that may be in the back of everyone's mind at this point. But hopefully not forgotten. Cheers, everyone!
