Nintendo Switch

Do you also play with non-PlayStation devices? Do you enjoy playing as a plumber saving a princess? Or some bald marines? Or maybe you want to play using the touchscreen?

do you plan on buying Switch in the foreseeable future?

mario kart makulit laruin, first time ko sya laruin dito sa switch and ok naman - naninibago lang ako sa mechanics pero keri naman.

Pero mas masarap pa rin mag adik sa zelda lalo na pag inaabot ng hanggang 2am tapos naka online pa rin kakalaro. :bigmouth:

wala pa balita kung magkakaron ng 3ds virtual console para sa switch. Kung magkaron man baka matagalan pa kasi buhay pa ang support sa 3ds mismo maski pa tinigil na ang production for the new 3ds XL unit itself.

Kung siguro puputulin na ng tuluyan ng nintendo ang lahat ng support at production sa previous handhelds nila tapos mag focus sila purely on switch then baka dun magkaron ng kahit man lang backwards compatibility sa mga 3ds titles nila FOR the switch unit. Ang problema lang magiging saturated naman ang library ng switch kasi puro ports na lang ang makikita natin at baka maging madalang naman ang mga exclusives for it. Magiging matrabaho pa to sa side ng developer dahil dagdag trabaho sa kanila in recycling ports to accomodate the features of the switch unit which may include, but not limited to, hardware compatibility issues that could arise.

The closest thing we got for virtual console FOR the switch is yung mga retro games na binebenta ulit. Not that there's anything wrong with them pero sana gawin man lang nilang mas current tulad ng mga sumikat sa 3ds noon.

Hindi tol...yung earthbound kasi snes virtual console lang naman...kaya naisip ko na sana tulad ng sa 3ds,umabot din yun sa switch. Pero tingin ko hindi magiging backwards compatible ang switch with 3ds games, magkakainan kasi sila masyado ng market pag ganoon eh.

Well, kung yung mga sobrang luma umaabot sa switch then may chance na yung title na gusto mo eh bigla na lang lumabas sa eshop. Tsaka once nag activate na yung paid online ng switch meron daw rental for older titles, so baka dun mapasama yun. I dont mind paying for the service, it's my way of showing support to nintendo para ganahan sila mag improve ng services nila.

Sa mga may switch na, be happy that you already got one..di tulad sa japan kelangan pa magpa raffle para lang makabili.

Ano kaya gagawin syo dyan kung pumila ka tapos naglalaro ka ng switch habang naghihintay? :sweat:

Looks like the Switch's online app (for in-game chat) are about as half-baked as you'd expect :lol: What a terrible solution to voice chat, which I really can't take seriously.

https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2017/07/ ... -chat-app/
As Nintendo points out in the app's official FAQ, voice chat cannot run in the background while using your phone for other purposes such as "texts, social media, etc.":

"The voice chat will disconnect while you're talking on the phone or using another application, but your voice chat will restart in the same room once you open the Nintendo Switch Online application again as long as the game session is still ongoing."

What's more, early testing confirms that the app won't work if your phone goes into power-saving "sleep mode," with the screen inactive. And don't bother trying to use the app to chat with your Switch friends while away from the system, either: you can only join chat rooms with people when you're actively playing a specific, supported game with them.

This is all in sharp contrast to Sony and Microsoft, which have allowed simple party chat directly on their consoles—across games and at the system level—for years.
Here's a demo of using the switch app:



Man I hope they fix this shi*. How are they going to expect me to take online seriously if basic functionality like creating parties and voice chat is so cumbersome and stupid. Whhhhhhhhhhhhyyyyyyyyyy nintendo, whyyyyyyyyyy.

NAPABIli na din ako ng Splatoon...ngayon ko pa lang kasi ito malalaro kaya curious ako kung abkit maraming nagsasabi na maganda siya.


Also, bumili ako ng pair ng extra yellow joy cons even though i overpaid (retail niya talaga is $80 but i paid $104) kasi walang regular stock at third party seller meron. Anyway, gusto ko kasi talaga yung yellow and in demand sa bahay ang extra controller para sa Mario Kart kaya ok na din.

Also went and bought bomberman para naman may ibang malaro after MK8. :)

Haha oo...inubos ko na yung mga naipon ko na amazon points kaya wala naman out of pocket. Pero sayang kasi dahil malaki discount for being a Prime member, eh paexpire na. Pati tuloy Mario Odyssey at Rabids nag preorder ako para sa discount....ang importante, points lang ang pinambayad. =)
