It is pretty odd that theres one JP game dumped in with the rest of the English games.

I took this screenshot last night, and I find it interesting we both have Tetris 99 as the 5th icon.

I think wonder if try and download the UK SNES app it'll let you? Im thinking it wont let you have the app in the same language twice?

Not that it really matters though. It's not like the NED where the Japanese app has the superior version of Xelda with the extra channel of audio.

I'm in the USA and had the same problem trying to download the EU versions. The Japanese versions downloaded just fine.

Best thing about the US controller for the SNES is the concave X and Y buttons. Really helped me as a kid to have a difference of feel for each button. Took me a while to get used to PS1 controllers when they came out because of that.

I do plan to get the official SNES controllers for the system, more or less "just because," but I recently got this 8bitdo controller that is Switch compatible that I'll likely use a lot more.

It's basically a combination of a SNES controller (including the concave X and Y buttons if you opt for the one with purple buttons shown below) and a modern controller with grips, etc. As I get older, I find that my hands tend to cramp up more with non-ergonomic controllers, like many older Nintendo and Sega systems, and even the joy-cons now on their own (I have a nice grip for the Switch in portable mode).

New Switch patent

Quote:
Couple interesting things about the new Switch patent images. One Switch has the big normal sized Bezels and the other has no Bezels shown. Remember that the Sharp IGZO Screen technology allows for much smaller Bezels? Just a patent for now, but fun stuff here

I bought the NES controllers mainly because they were "similar" to Joy-Con in how they functioned. Connecting to the sides, and being useable while connected. So I bought them to add to my Joy-Con collection.

But since the SNES controller acts more like a Pro Controller than a Joy-Con, I have no interest in it.

I have an 8Bitdo GBros adapter, and can use my SNES Classic controller if I desire.

Spent some time with some demos this weekend.

Really impressed with Dragon Quest 11s. Looks and runs better than I expected and I’ve had a blast with it so far. Played 2 hours or so and googled and saw the demo is around 10 hours! Shelved it for now to finish my current Fire Emblem run (though Gears 5 has pulled me away from that today), but I’ll definitely finish the demo and may get the full game at the end of the month (progress carries over).

Also played the new Daemon X Machina demo. It’s still just ok for me. Maybe a cheap pick up down the road if it reviews well. Lastly, Cadence of Hyrule just isn’t for me.

Out of curiosity, did you turn off the rhythm feature for Cadence? I hated the idea of that mechanic and turned it off immediately which pretty much makes the game a turn based combat. I enjoyed it that way. I do still think the game is over priced for a 5 hour game; it should have been $15.

I did. Just still didnít enjoy it. Just feels clunky hopping around and I donít want a turn-based Zelda. I hated the Necromancer game so I was pretty sure Iíd not like this either, but figured I should give the demo a go as a Zelda fan.

Kirby was a 5 hour game, and itís $60.

Can you turn off the rhythm in the demo, and if so then how?

Star Allies is probably the worst Kirby game I've played. Really really bad. I sold it a day or two after buying it.

Have you won a match? I've finished in the top 5 a few times but have yet to win. It seems like I usually finish higher when I leave it on Random and switch to KOs when there's 50 or less people left.

Top 5 is best I've come. Just pure luck I feel like, usually leave it on random usually as soon as I switch it I get attacked by everyone and die instantly.

One tactic I've tried is focusing my attack on 1 person. This way others set on 'Attackers' won't send me junk. The downside is if that person is really good the match can end really quickly.

I've gotten to #2, but still haven't won a match. I'd like to win so I can try out that new Invictus mode.

Maybe we can win a match once all the good players move onto that mode... lol

You can. If you miss a bunch of beats in a row it will pop up and ask if you want to switch, and there's a toggle that's always available in the options--I think it's called fixed beat or something like that.

The best I've done in Tetris 99 was 4th place. Did that a few times, can't get past 4th however. With the recent update, if you win a match, it unlocked a new elite* mode for the "best of the best" players.


*It's not called elite, but I forget the name of it. Elite is close enough.
