Let’s Talk

Switch continues to receive new games, but older titles are being brought over as well. We’ve seen this with third-parties, and even Nintendo. Although in Nintendo’s case, their “ports” have some extra bells and whistles – like the revamped Battle Mode in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and new arcade fighters for Pokken Tournament DX.

Capcom recently announced Resident Evil Revelations Collections for Switch. That could be just the tip of the iceberg, as the publisher seems to be preparing more titles for the system as well. So I thought this could pave the way for an interesting topic to discuss: third-party games we’d like to see ported to Switch.

I’ll get the discussion started here. There are two clear games that come to mind when I think about third-party games I’d like to see brought over to Switch. With rumors about Okami being released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year, a Switch version would be lovely. I’d happily buy the game for a third time if it meant being able to play it on the go. I’d also really like to see Persona 5 on Switch. I played through the entirety of Persona 4 Golden on the PlayStation Vita, and having that handheld experience would be fantastic.

But how about you? Is there any game – or games – in mind outside of Nintendo that you’d like to see make the jump to Switch? If not, that’s completely fine as well. Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: What are you playing? – August 2017

A new month is here! We just entered August last week, so that means we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Have you started up something entirely new for the month? Are you trying out Hey! Pikmin or Miitopia? Or maybe you’ve been giving some of the new Switch eShop games a look. Whatever the case, let us know in the comments below!

Highlights from last week’s topic: Splatoon 2 impressions

Splatoon 2 has been out for just over a week. Nintendo published the game last Friday, and many Switch owners likely purchased the game. One thing is for sure: it’s selling like hot cakes in Japan.

How many of you have picked up Splatoon 2 thus far? If you did, have you had a chance to play it? What do you think of it so far? How do you feel about the new single-player campaign, Salmon Run, and everything else the game has to offer? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: Miiverse memories

Nintendo issued a new Wii U firmware update this week. The system hasn’t seen the addition of any new features in quite some time, so normally this wouldn’t be big news. However, it ended up being fairly significant after dataminers apparently found text that mentions the end of Miiverse.

First thing: we can’t say with absolutely certainty that the datamined text is accurate. Second, assuming it’s true, it may take time for Nintendo to pull the plug on Miiverse. For all we know, it could be a year, two years, or longer.

However, we can’t deny that Miiverse isn’t as prominent these days as it once was. It’s not a part of Switch at all. Wii U is still used by many players, but it’s not in the spotlight now. And the 3DS does feature Miiverse as well, though you could argue that it isn’t as significant there as it is on Wii U.

So let’s take a moment or two to look back on Miiverse. How do you feel the community as a whole? Do you think the original idea was good for Nintendo to put in place? How active were you on Miiverse, if at all? Do you have any memories in particular? Let us know in the comments below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: What are you playing? – July 2017

A new month is here! We just entered July last week, so that means we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Have you started up something entirely new for the month? Have you given Ever Oasis a shot? Or maybe you’re trying something on Switch like ARMS or the new Zelda DLC. Whatever the case, let us know in the comments below!

Highlights from last week’s topic: Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Master Trials impressions

The first of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s DLC packs launched this week. Nintendo began distributing The Master Trials on Friday. While the big DLC we’re all waiting for is coming this holiday with The Champions’ Ballad (featuring an original story and new dungeon), this is a nice way to return the game and hold us over until then.

Probably the biggest addition in The Master Trials is the challenge that has players taking on room after room and defeating enemies without dying. Completing the challenge lets you power up the Master Sword even further. Other highlights include the tougher Master Mode, Korok Mask, and more.

How many of you have tried out The Master Trials? If you have, did you beat the Trial of the Sword? Have you given Master Mode a try? Share your impressions with us in the comments below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: E3 2017 reactions

Just like that, another E3 is in the books. After weeks of hype and speculation, we now know of everything Nintendo had to show between its video presentation and hours of Treehouse streams.

For all of the talk about how long the presentation would be and how Nintendo would mainly be sticking to 2017 games, we arguably saw quite a lot. Not one, but two new Metroid games were announced. A core Pokemon title is in development for Switch. New Kirby and Yoshi titles are coming, not to mention Rocket League as well. Super Mario Odyssey looks fantastic and launches on October 27. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 releases this year despite speculation about it being pushed to 2018, and Fire Emblem Warriors is slated for the fall. 3DS saw some new announcements as well during the Treehouse stream between Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions and Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido.

So what did everyone think of this year’s E3? Did it live up to your expectations? Do you have any personal highlights? Let us know in the comments below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: E3 2017 hopes and dreams

E3 is by far the biggest gaming event of the year. It’s true that Nintendo Directs often deliver significant news, but E3 tends to be where the most important announcements and reveals take place – at least across the industry as a whole. All eyes are always on each of the major platform holders to see what they have in store for the months and years ahead.

After a slightly nontraditional – but still successful – E3 in 2016, we’re getting a more standard format from Nintendo this time around. Nintendo is returning to video presentations with its broadcast on Tuesday. Treehouse will be back as well for three days of streaming (up from two days last year). And if that wasn’t enough, three separate tournaments are happening: one for Splatoon 2, another for ARMS, and a final one for Pokken Tournament DX.

E3 is always where people can dream big. And since we’re just a few days out from the expo, we want to hear from all of you. What do you want to see Nintendo announce at E3? What are your realistic expectations, and dreams that are a bit further out there? Even if you simply want to bathe in the hype that is E3, that’s fine as well! Be sure to share your thoughts with us below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: What are you playing? – June 2017

A new month is here! We’ve just entered June, so that means we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Have you started up something entirely new for the month? Have you given Fire Emblem Echoes a shot? Or maybe you’re trying something on Switch like Disgaea 5 Complete or Ultra Street Fighter II. Whatever the case, let us know in the comments below!

Highlights from last week’s topic: How do you feel about ARMS?

Nintendo had a big blowout of ARMS this week with its own dedicated Nintendo Direct. It really touched on almost everything we’ve wanted to know about the game. New characters were revealed, new modes were shown, and we even found out about ARMS Global Testpunch – an opportunity to try things out before launch.

Has Nintendo sold you on ARMS now, or were you already skeptical? Perhaps you’re waiting until the ARMS Global Testpunch until you really make up your mind. Who’s your favorite character? What mode interests you the most as of now? Share your thoughts about ARMS with us in the comments below.
