    I have a lawn to mow, you can make that in a weekend, tbh, IMO.
    Compelling offer...

    Damn Metroid Prime 4 just got a huge delay, at least a couple of years. Nintendo just announced they're having to restart development of the game from the ground up, that their work from the past two years or so was garbage and had to be thrown away.

    this is crappy news though. It was the game I was looking forward to this year. I guess I need to go back to Mario Odyssey. Started it and then switched to BOW.

    It always seemed like a stretch for a 2019 game when there was absolutely no game play shown. Makes me also worry about Shin Megami Tensei V, although at least we have gotten in-engine trailers for it.

    Is there anything else I should think about playing instead of Mario? Looking for something that will take some time.

    Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild are definitely the class of the system. Smash Ultimate and Mario Kart 8 are fun for a few minutes at a time and Bayonetta 1 & 2 have some pretty cool action, but nothing comparable to SMO and BOTW. New Super Mario U Deluxe is kind of disappointing; Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze is a much better 2D platformer. I haven't tried either of the big JRPG on it yet (eg Xenoblade Chronicles 2 or Octopath Traveler) so I can't comment on them.

    That pretty much answers my question. I've got Super Smash Ultimate, Mario Kart, and Tropical Freeze but I get tired of them pretty quickly. I wish I hadn't just quite Odyssey right in the middle to switch to BOTW. I feel like I'll have to start it over. Which isn't a big deal I guess. Was only through the first 2 levels. Thanks.

    Pretty bad news for Nintendo. They really need to knock it out of the park in 2019 because everyone is going to be waiting for and then buying the PS5 and the next XBox in 2020. But Fire Emblem Three Houses, Yoshi's Crafted World, and Pokemon aren't going to be enough IMO. They might be stuck having to do a price cut to the system if Pokemon isn't a 9.5/10 level game.

    I don't keep up with the hardware sales but I'm sure you're right. Along with BOTW and Odyssey, Prime was the other game that helped me justify buying the system. And I figured there would be enough good indie games to fill in. Which so far, I haven't found anything I really love. Pokemon doesn't really do anything for me.

    What was the studio previously doing this? Was it Bandai Namco? They fucked up

    That's the rumor. I wonder if they fucked it up or if Nintendo just has extremely high standards for this series. Either way they should have had Retro Studios develop it from the beginning. Supposedly Retro Studios made a demo for Prime 4 that Nintendo was impressed by.

    I gave up on Octopath. Maybe I will try again later, but that last boss is too goddamn time consuming.

    Modern Vintage Gamer claims mupen64 in RetroArch gives full speed Nintendo 64 gaming on a hacked Switch now. I'll have to check that shit later.

    Started back on Odyssey. It really is fantastic.

    I also bought a game called, "Velocity 2". Fastplay game that alternates between side scroll platform and top down space shooter. It's a lot of fun. Controls are excellent which makes the game. I'm through level 26 which is maybe halfway. Most of the levels take about 3-5 minutes. But I'll probably go back and replay them when I'm done to shorten the times. Lots of checkpoints so when you die, you usually start back just before that spot.

    Very enjoyable.

    Started fucking around with my Switch again and RetroArch is a pain in the ass. Constant crashing. I don't even want to bother with trying N64 on this with how unstable the program is. I'll stick with playing N64 games off WiiWare using my Gamecube controller. Probably wait until N64 is supported in the official builds instead of dicking around with the nightlys.
