HAs anyone figured out a good place to pre-order the Switch online?

Amazon has preorders.  And they tend to be reliable and have preorder price matching.

Quote from: Bullwinkle
The 2.5 hour minimum remote playtime is deadly to what they're trying to accomplish.  Sure, it can go as high as 6 hours, but you know that's not for any game you want to play for extended periods.  At least they've got normal USB charging options this time, so that helps.

Honestly that doesn't sound too bad to me.  I mean, my Shield tablet can barely read Twitter for 6 hours on a full charge (if it can even go that long?) so to expect this to do better than that while playing games seems odd.

6 hours would be fine.  I expected most games to be in the 2.5 hour range.  That seems quite low to me for something you'd want to pull out on a plane ride, for example.

It might seem low, but I don't really know of any other tablet or device that can do highend gaming for longer?

As for the hardware and games, it's an interesting concept, but unless you do a lot of gaming on the go, which I don't, the appeal isn't quite there. I'm going to sit out the launch and wait and see.

Yeah, other than the obvious Zelda and Mario there wasn't much too interesting.  And I don't think the weird little controllers are appealing at all. 

What kills me is that I keep seeing people saying this is Nintendo returning to "no gimmick", when this whole system seems like gimmick on top of gimmick.  Maybe it will work out...it seems every time I think Nintendo is on crack they are successful, so that would be about right.

Unfortunately, it looks like the game is selling poorly. A damned shame, as the developers put their heart and soul into it, and created an excellent addition to the genre. I doubt we will get a sequel or DLC.

What makes you say that?  Their sales aren't amazing, but I think it's doing relatively well for a niche game of their size.

This looks like fun, is BJ the only person who played it all this time?

I tried it out when they had a free weekend quite a while back (or did I buy it and get a refund?  I don't remember).  It seemed cool, but at the time I didn't really like the feel of their guns and shooting.  Which was kind of a nonstarter for an FPS game all about killing.

I have considered checking it out again now that it's done, but I have so many other games it'll probably wait until another free weekend trial.

Quote from: rittchard on January 10, 2017, 06:18:50 PM

Do you prefer the DC movies?  Did you like Deadpool?  Are you a comic book fan in general?  Just curious.  I'm sure there are plenty of other people who are kind of burnt out on superhero movies in general; they are certainly saturating the market between the 2 Marvel factions and DC.  As much as I love the movies and the genre, even I'm feeling a bit burnt out.  It doesn't help that there's a whole new set of Star Wars movies, and then all the different "book" series, it's like every other movie is an "event."  Then add a dozen or so TV series and it's kind of crazy.

Other than the Nolan Batman movies (particularly the first two) I don't like the DC movies much better in general.  I thought Batman vs Superman Extended Edition was decent but had some issues.  I thought Suicide Squad Extended Edition was OK but very flawed and not great by any means.

I loved Deadpool, even though he's a character I have never liked before.  I'm really afraid of the inevitable sequel, though.  If they run it into the ground, and try to add too many other characters, and lose the focus.

I enjoyed the first Iron Man a lot.  I thought the first Avengers was great.  I really liked Ant Man more than I thought I would.

I know it's another studio, but some of the X-Men movies were alright, but I never liked them as much as other people seemed to (though I also didn't hate some as much either).

Similarly some of the Spider-Man stuff has been decent.  A lot of retreading the same ground, though.

I read comics in the 90's, so I'm familiar with the main Marvel stuff.  I think the problem they get into is that as time goes on they try to pack too much shit into them.  Every sequel they just add more characters, more enemies, more magic, more chaos. 

And when it gets too far into the mystical otherworldly stuff I think it just loses it's grounding in general.  I understand that's part of the comics world, and they feel like they have to keep upping the scale in the movies, but it just becomes a little too goofy with purple space weirdos conspiring against Nordic gods and all that crap. 

We'd probably have to get more talking about individual movies to get more specific about what I do or don't like in them, but in general I like when they keep things more grounded (though clearly still comic-book crazy).

I have the problem that I'm only really interested in one game at each tier, so it feels silly to get them all.  But it also feels silly to complain about 7+ great games for $10...

I feel like I'm the only person who has really worn thin on these movies. 

Similar to watching one of the new Transformers movies, they are mostly just nonsense in between big fights that lose my interest by being even more boring somehow.  Didn't care for the Thor movies.  Didn't really like the 2nd Captain America. 

I saw Civil War and can't even remember anything in it beyond the fight at the airport.  And it just seemed similar to Age of Ultron for the most part.  They all just seem to blend together and kind of bore me for some reason.  Introducing more and more crappy side characters certainly doesn't help.
96  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1] Scalebound on: January 10, 2017, 04:17:28 PM
I wonder if the semi-failure of other Microsoft-published titles had any effect on this.  Recore was another very promising game that seemed to get shoved out the door too soon and got raked over the coals for having an unfinished second half.  Quantum Break was the remnant of the old "TV first" management and suffered from it.  I wonder if this was similar, with too much past baggage to recover from.
97  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (January 8, 2017) on: January 09, 2017, 04:47:04 PM
I find it really strange that after the success of the Xbox Live Arcade games of last gen, so many new games release even on consoles these days and if I didn't pay attention here I would never know they even come out. 

The modern consoles are so terrible at surfacing new releases (other than a single paid-promotion for a AAA one or Sony/Microsoft published something) that I'd be shocked if any smaller games on there sell worth a damn these days.  I guess that's the price to be paid for a more open platform, but I don't think it has to be that way.

Just for clarification, note that Camper Jumper Simulator also includes jumping school buses. Not jumping over school buses, actually driving and jumping with them. Just so you know...

Oh, I thought it was simulating the different sweaters you might wear while on an English holiday in your caravan.

And it looks like anything but a simulator.

Two more games for the final Day 31: The Blue Flamingo and Small Radios Big Televisions.  Not exactly going out on a bang, but so it goes. 

It still baffles me that they put in DLC for two games that you have to own to even redeem those keys, but didn't include the games themselves.

Day 30 arrives and it seems like they're running out of steam, giving another piece of DLC for which you need to own the game. 

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare and Battlerite DLC: YogYog Bear Mount (must own game) for this next-to-last day.

Coming up towards the end of this month of games, Day 29 brings another couple games I have never heard of: Gunmetal Arcadia Zero and Bohemian Killing Soundtrack and Art Book DLC, which won't activate without owning the game so that's a terrible and weird inclusion.

Well, I ended up getting sucked into Guild Wars 2 due to a friend's urging and it being included in the Humble Bundle.  Cripes, like I needed another game to steal my time.  Never thought I'd be going back to another MMO, but I'm having fun here.
