- Actraizer!
- Triangle Strategy is still looking good
- This might be the first time I buy a Kirby game
- I'm not nostalgic for N64, but I'll consider the higher subscription if they add titles that are not easy to come by (F-Zero X expansion for DD, Ogre Battle 64, Sega-CD games)
- Is the 6-button Genesis controller available outside of Japan?

Thanks. Big family changes the last year resulting in me upending my entire life. Don't really have the time for games and movies currently but I poke my head in from time to time.

Enjoyed the show. I'm okay with throwing another $10/yr for the NSO expansion pass as long as they have a better release schedule. They like dropping 8-12 games day one and then drip feed. Good to see Genesis but too many of those games are already available elsewhere on the console. The controller pricing is pretty high and at odds with their other two releases.

Actraiser is something I'll look at at some point. The art style didn't wow me. A new Kirby in 3-d is nice and I bought the Castlevania Collection last night. As previously stated, no idea when I'll play it.

They'll show up on Amazon for sure. Not sure if it's possible to buy one from Nintendo and have it shipped. There's always the officially licensed Retro-bit alternatives which I hear are good quality.

Finally watched the Direct this morning. Well...that was a big fat nothing burger. Nothing appealed to me except Metroid Dread. Even Bayonetta 3 I thought looked kind of meh. The game looked so bland and colorless. The Switch hardware is really starting to show it's age now. I wish Nintendo would hurry up and announce a Switch Pro or a Switch 2.0.

How would I add a database entry for a game? Cause the current standard edition of the physical Hotline Miami release isn't on this site, I would make my own full post but it isn't letting me.

I wasn't expecting to see Dracula X, not as good as the PC Engine source but a decent SNES game.

I'm sure Bayonetta 3 will still be fun, but it definitely does look a bit drab. Here's hoping the 1080p/60 trailer is an indicator of the final product, but I kind of wish Platinum/Sega could put it on modern hardware...
I wouldn't expect a Switch Pro/2.0 until after the OLED version is in stores. Probably closer to the release of BotW2 so it doesn't impact holiday sales of the available products.

Anyone know if Nintendo is releasing a white version of the pro controller to match the new white OLED Switch?

I don't know when the OLED will be readily available and don't really intend to use that screen anyway (it'll be docked for 99% of the time) so it didn't really seem worth the wait/trouble. The Steam Deck seems quite nice but as noted I don't really need a portable feature and my One X (hopefully a Series X when supplies settle down) will continue to be the center of my gaming universe. And obviously the Deck doesn't solve the Nintendo first party content issue.
Welcome to the club. I too bought a Switch having had the GC as my last Nintendo console (we're going to exclude the 2 weeks that I owned a second hand Wii...). I also didn't want to wait for the OLED model because my Switch is pretty much always docked.

I assume the OLED will largely cover the main mid-cycle update for the Switch? And that could keep any sort of next-gen "console" from going into production for at least a couple years I assume.

For sure! Since getting it, I have yet to even test the mobility mode.

Hope you enjoy yours.

Employees at 11 game companies said their teams were in possession of Nintendo's 4K development kit for the Switch. The companies span the globe, ranging from large publishers to small studios and include at least one that has never made a console game before, Zynga Inc., according to the employees, who asked not to be identified because they weren't authorized to discuss their projects publicly.

But a system capable of handling 4K games isn't expected to be released until late next year at the earliest, people familiar with the plans said. That leaves Nintendo at a technical disadvantage to rivals, whose shares have soared this year while Nintendo's have lost 20%. It also risks alienating developers who have spent months tailoring their games to take advantage of upgraded hardware capabilities.

Nintendo responded to a list of questions by saying Bloomberg's reporting is "inaccurate" and declined to specify which parts of the information it was referring to.

The fact that it's still selling as well as it is, is reason enough for them not to rush out a more powerful version. Once those numbers taper off we'll start to see more than rumors about an upgrade.

I saw that. But they also said the same about Lite and OLED lol

Also pretty funny that Nintendo had 2 4K patents denied on the same day lol sure Nintendo we believe there’s no new 4K console coming. Just apply for 4K patents for the fun of it

Wonder if the patents being denied affects the timeline for release.

Looks like there could be another new Pokémon game in the works if this employee profile is to be believed. Although I guess there’s always a new Pokémon game in the works to be fair, as soon as ones finished the next ones already in the works.

Let's be honest, there's definitely going to be a 4K Switch, but it won't be out for a while. The standard Switch is still selling well so Nintendo obviously don't want to harm sales, especially now the OLED is out.
