I have been gaming since I was six years old, back in the beautiful year of 1990 (man, I’m getting old XD). Graduated as an Industrial Engineer. Fan of anime, manga and comics. I’m partial towards the consoles and games from Nintendo and Sony, although I would probably play in every platform in existence if I had the time and money to do so. I’m a bit of a retro gamer, but without disparaging modern games. Unyielding fan of The Legend of Zelda and Mega Man, I will probably keep playing games from those franchises until I die.

    The surprising thing is how Sakurai managed to drop so many bombs yet still managed to be a tease, what with that obscured mode when he showed the menu.

    Hopefully it's something single player related. Smash Board was fun for the occasional reunion with friends, but I would prefer a new Adventure mode or something like that.

    I guess we'll have another Smash Direct between here and December.

    Now they just need to add Game boy as a playable character and we'll have the complete cast of the Captain N cartoon.

    Mmm... Does Saints Row IV count? Most side missions in that game (and several story missions now that I think about it) are technically mini-games or at least homages to other games.

    @lanmao It’s a quirk of Japanese phonetics and the Katakana syllabary. The last "u" is supposed to be pronounced so quickly that it’s for practical purposes treated as mute.

    For what is worth I always refer to it in conversation as “the 8-bit Nintendo” rather than by its abbreviation. Although in my mind I do read the abbreviation as “Ness”.

    For the sake of comparison, might I ask how much Steam and the Apple appstore take as their cut? I was under the impression it was on a similar ballpark as the Google Play store.

    This is shaping up to be a great Spider-man game. I hope Insomniac manages to stick the landing.

    Two things in particular that I like:

    1. The emphasis on Peter's scientific side. It's an aspect of the character that at times doesn't get enough attention. Say whatever you want about Dan Slott's run, one of the most fun aspects of it was Peter coming up with new gadgets and suits. I like that being replicated here, even if I'm not exactly fan of the Advanced suit design (thankfully you can get more costumes).

    2. The story focusing on his post-college years as a seasoned super hero. Too many adaptations go back to either his teenage years or his time at college and I get why (it's the golden era of the character after all, when he pretty much redefined super hero comics forever). But Spider-man history is incredibly rich and extends further, so they focusing on another period of his life is a nice change of pace.

    @dard410 Third party support hasn't exactly been stellar but that was always going to be a given due to the specs of the Switch.

    Still, I don't have much problem with it being primarily my indie and retro machine. I own only five games in physical form (Mario Odyssey, Xenoblade, Skyrim, Mario Kart and ARMS), but like 15 in digital format and have like 100 games on the e-shop wish list already (I would probably have bought more but I'm actively avoiding getting a backlog). Admittedly however, I'm likely in the minority there.

    Still, while the console continues the trend of relying mostly on Nintendo's own games to sell, and@SuperShinobi points out some valid concerns regarding Smash Ultimate and Pokémon Let's Go, I really find it unlikely that the Switch is going to lose momentum any time soon as those games are still guaranteed to move consoles. 2019 is also going to have the mainline Pokémon games, Fire Emblem and, hopefully Metroid Prime 4, so I can't picture it losing momentum there either. It's in 2020 when things become more nebulous with the advent of the next gen consoles and we not having any idea of what Nintendo might have in the pipeline by then.Edited 2 times.

    @SuperShinobi I’m not quite sure if it’s actually fair or appropriate to compare software attach ratios to its predecessors when the Switch is only one year and a few months old. One has to assume the ratio will improve as Nintendo continues to release more games.

    That being said, I do think that the recurrent issue with Nintendo’s consoles since the N64 is that most people pretty much buy them only to play a handful of Nintendo games and not much else.

    It’s funny, I like taking the sneaky/stealthy route in games that allow you to take it, but pure stealth games tend to be too punishing for my tastes. That being said, I do love the Metal Gear Solid series, especially Snake Eater.

    Honorable mention to the Predator sequences in the Batman Arkham games. I think those are the sequences that better convey the feeling of “being Batman and striking terror in the heart of the criminals”.
