Yup. The Switch does not feel in any way outdated to me.  I hope they keep it around.  If they do make a new one, I hope it’s 100% backward compatible and that all your games transfer over - because the Switch has one of the best overall libraries off any console and it would suck to re-start from zero.

You ask too many questions. It’s Space Jam! We’re all going to watch it and enjoy it anyway. (even if it is bad)

The names of some of these games are so nuts - it makes me wonder if the names are picked by some bigwigs that barely speak English and no one else has the guts to tell them that they sound very dumb. Read more

I remember being super hyped for this game when it was Dinosaur Planet. Rare had a way of taking Nintendo’s greatest hits and reworking to something as good or even better (e.g. Mario 64 -> Banjo-Kazooie, Mario Kart 64 -> Diddy Kong Racing) and this was going to be their take on Ocarina of Time, one of the best games Read more

You might try them again. I actually thought the Divine Beasts were pretty great - better than Wind Waker’s dungeons IMHO. The puzzle box element makes them interesting - the whole dungeon changes dynamically as you control the beast.  The first time I realized that I was blown away.  However, they’re a bit too simple Read more

That’s fair.  Personally I really liked BOTW’s dungeons but they could have been a little meatier and more varied.

They essentially stripped all exploration elements away and replaced them with more dungeon puzzles. I play Zelda to explore the world, so this wasn’t my jam. Some of the dungeons were neat though.

I can’t believe Ari didn’t include a pic of the Transistor tattoo. I feel cheated somehow. Read more

I *love* 3D platformers, and there are so few of them.  This looks right up my alley.  So I may pick it up.

Well, yeah. I meant I hope it isn’t the start of a trend for Ghibli.  I don’t want them to go the way of Disney.

Well, this movie looks like a good time.  But I hope this isn’t the start of a trend...

This is fascinating.  OoT is one of the best and most important games of all time, and it’s amazing to be able to see it in an early form.  It’s like going back in time to watch the Pyramids under construction.

Has to be Mario (any 3D one.)  Just lovely.  As for 2D... no mention of Super Meat Boy?!  That game gives you more air control and speed than just about anything, and once you get the hang of it, it feels godly.

I love the idea of a pitch-black horror game relying on the controller, and sound of course, for feedback. That would be a unique experience, if done well, it would be just as accessible to the blind as it would be to anyone else! Not sure if somebody has done this already, but probably the PS5 controller would help a Read more

I feel the same! I’m kinda tired of games with so much killing. I can’t empathize with the main character at all when (s)he’s just killed dozens and dozens of dudes without any qualms. I do appreciate games like Spider-Man where you can’t kill anyone (although realistically you’re just giving them all concussions and Read more

I don’t really care about where you put your PS5, but I do want more shots of all y’alls cats.

For authenticity, I hope they gave it a truly terrible translation.

It’s a very special game. Even aside from its gameplay elements, I just love inhabiting that world. There’s a mix of childlike joy and real gravitas to the story. Hyrule doesn’t have a fleshed-out history like, say, Skyrim, but it has elements that make it feel like a real place - like all the leftover symbols of Read more
