    Would have preferred an updated Alpha collection or even better, how about Alpha 4?!

    What happens when Mario ends up in the hands of a western developer?

    Of course he gets a gun!

    @MyNameIsMe The truth is in the middle. The motion controls worked just fine for me, but boss duels were hard and exhausting for me.

    Some people, like me, well, I am the sort of person that always dreads the scenario when a football or other sports ball of some sort would accidentally land near me and the other people would ask me to throw it back to them... lol

    @lonecow Have Nintendo switch out your wonky JoyCon. They are, in my experience, pretty fast with turnaround. Also, unless really unlucky since most units sold out, any joycons you find in store should be fine. Just check the serial number if you can, as the bad batch is concentrated on a certain batch.

    Also, don't take my previous comment as a doubt on you. More to the fact that if you are anything like me, you may not be the most graceful and dexterous individual ;)

    Only ask, because other previews plus hands on from fighting game enthusiasts, say they work well.

    Hmmm, you are the first person to say this. So far in the invitationals, the players and SF players have said that the controls are actually very precise.

    @MHWilliams So, I have never played a Disgaea game before. Looks utterly charming. My only experience with tactical RPG's comes from Final Fantasy Tactics, especially Advance, and Fire Emblem. Is this game as accessible as those for someone like me who is not the greatest SRPG player, but can still get the hang of it and still enjoy myself? Or is it overcomplicated "pull my hair out" because Japanese developers love complicated systems.

    @Roto13 I don't know, aside from crap like CoD, the third party games have gotten the updates and still do. Minecraft for Wii U which I play with my daughter still gets updates.

    But great drive by snark post for the sake of it!

    I played a good deal of Skyrim when it released and even went ahead and bought the PS4 remaster for 20 bucks cause it is a nifty game. That being said, I enjoy it just for the scope and how pretty the game environments can be, but the NPC and enemy designs are absurdly generic.

    And while exploring dungeons and finding ruins are cool, they all look the same.

    But my biggest gripe is the combat. After all these games, it is still so simplistic and dull. To the point where I just choose a stealth archer build.

    Also, I enjoy the skill trees, but I hate the leveling system. I am personally not a fan of level up as you use them as it can really bog things down. I'd rather just invest my own points and stats on my own.

    Skyward Sword is an amazing game with some flaws that could have been fixed through menu settings, such as how games offer a tutorial pop up option which you can enable or disable (in this case Fi) and some of the later game fetch quests.

    The game is gorgeous and I love the story. I also enjoyed the slow start because it sets up the characters and world very well, and I appreciate that as someone who loves the lore on Zelda.

    I understand the motion controls are divisive, with some loving it and some not. I fall in the middle.

    I think the motion controls worked great. They pulled it off. I also love it for aiming, and I used gyro aiming a lot in BoTW and Wind Waker HD.

    However! Motion controls presented me with a big problem and it is my secret shame. Skyward Sword is the first Zelda game I never beat because I found it too difficult. Weird, right?

    Not really, because with the meticulous one on one nature of so many of the fights, dexterity is key. And I have none of that! I do when playing with a pad, but not replicating 1:1 movements.

    You know how many times I failed on the first boss dueling him one on one? It was embarrassing! So I would welcome a remaster that have you options for both, especially seeing that BoTW pulled off fantastic one on one combat.
