    2. Buy Nintendo Switch now or wait for new release?

      I'm in no rush to buy but I am considering getting a Switch. From my brief bit of duckduckgo-ing, it appears that a new Switch is on the horizon, either a newer version (Switch 2) or a mini-Switch and the current release may drop in price.

      Any thoughts? What would you do at this point? Most of the shops around here that sell them are out of stock anyway so unless I was to buy online, it's not necessarily an option.

      Thanks all!

      Update: I bought a Switch. With Mario Kart and Zelda. It's brilliant!

    3. Can someone explain the hype around Super Mario Maker 2?

      I don't understand what makes the game appealing. It looks like it takes forever to make a level, and why would I want to play levels from random people on the internet?

      I like games that you build stuff like KSP but just wondering what the appeal of SMM2 is.

      Looking for some new games to play. This is my list of liked games so far

      1. Worms WMD. This style of game just never gets old for me
      2. Mario kart. Looks really nice in 60fps and a ton of fun
      3. Golf story. Surprisingly fun golf RPG game, also great 2 player multiplayer
      4. Arms. Quite a bit more fun than wii sports boxing
      5. Baba is you. Really fun puzzle game with a unique idea
      6. Korg gadget. Not a game but I love playing with synths

    5. List of motion-control games for Nintendo Switch

      Just as with the Wii, I think the motion controls are a big and fun feature of the Switch.

      I have already searched online, but could not find a list of games that have motion controls (and in what way). I did see some attempt to put it on Wikipedia, but it was removed due to being too specific to be on Wikipedia itself.

      If anyone found anything or is willing to help out, we could collaboratively write one up. What the best place for it would be, I do not know yet, but WikiData pops to mind.

      I see votes, but I see no comments ...no idea how to interpret that.

      Metascore 93

      Summary: Inklings from the Splatoon series, as well as returning Smash characters like Mario and Link will be making appearances in this classic Nintendo franchise's Switch debut. Faster combat, new items, new attacks, new defensive options, and more will keep the battle raging whether you’re at home or on the go.

      Developer: Nintendo, HAL Labs, Bandai Namco Games, Sora Ltd.

      Despite that a lot of the old content isn't as hard-hitting seeing it the second, third, fourth or even fifth time around, the fact that it's all here, and in a manageable file size, is more than enough.


      IGN

      Super Smash Bros. Ultimate lives up to its name, offering the most comprehensive game in the series to date. It has an absurd amount to play, fight, and unlock – though that can be to its detriment at times. While the World of Light adventure mode isn’t reason alone to get Smash Bros., it’s still a consistently amusing and shockingly large campaign, and a worthy compliment to Ultimate’s incredible multiplayer core.


      Edge Magazine

      It's harder than ever to resist embracing the chaos, because with so many ingredients its bound to surprise you more often than not. As its title suggests, this is a sequel that pulls out all the stops, as you sense that Sakurai is going all-out to indulge his inner nerd for maybe the final time. It's a rapturous celebration, not just of Nintendo, but videogames as a whole. Now for pity's sake, let the poor man have a rest.


      Telegraph

      For dedicated fans, though, such a challenge will doubtless prove appealing. Super Smash Bros Ultimate, for all its accessibility and riotous multiplayer fun, may be one of the few mainstream Nintendo games that isn’t necessarily for everyone. But that’s okay. Because in pursuing its more technical elements and providing its most substantial solo adventure yet, it's hard to see Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as anything other than a series’ best.


      #In Progress


      Ars Technica

      Smash Ultimate earns its name not by piling on the content, but by understanding what an adjective like "ultimate" means in the context of a fighting game. Gamers want an essential, badass combat experience no matter which characters square off. Even this early, it's settled: Smash Ultimate nails this expectation. Thus, it is the best fighting-game package to ever land on a Nintendo console.


      GameSpot

      [Provisional Score = 90]

      Ultimate is a comprehensive, considered, and charming package that refines and builds on an already strong and enduring fighting system.


      Kotaku

      It’s difficult to imagine the type of gamer for whom Smash Ultimate has no appeal. This is a big game, and with the fat skimmed off, a remarkable one. Its core attraction—fighting on a platform—is as polished and brilliant and sharp as ever, its fighters the most unique and deep.


      Polygon

      Because I can fine-tune the options I want, and pick the characters and stages I love from the franchise’s whole history, I’m almost guaranteed to be able to craft a fun match with whomever I’m playing with. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s gameplay is so snappy and fluid, its characters so rewarding in their variety, that it feels destined to dominate living rooms once again.

    7. Does the Expansion Pass for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 improve or break it?

      I just got Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and am wondering if it makes sense to get the Expension Pass already from the start or rather wait before I finish the game. What I am concerned about is that it...

      I just got Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and am wondering if it makes sense to get the Expension Pass already from the start or rather wait before I finish the game.

      What I am concerned about is that it makes the game too easy or that it adds some unneeded items that stick out of the original story/feeling too much.

      Is that the case, or is it rather just ironing out some small nit-picks and the DLCs make it better?
