Maybe he should replay the intro level of Super Metroid (the space lab). That should be more his speed. 😂

Maybe they should introduce a "Jaffe Mode" it would be the Metroid version of the hand holding mode they put in one of the New Super Mario Bros games. Hell I can be petty. If I was a game developer. I'd rename easy mode in all my games to Jaffe Mode.

@RSG3arr any of the 3DS and/or Switch SMT titles dlc worth it? Or what are they even? I’m heading to bed right now so I don’t really wanna look them up. Lol

I actually don't know I haven't purchased any of it except for SMTV.

 

SMTVs DLC is 3 or 4 extra fights that can be summoned upon defeat for 5 bucks a pop. You can also spend like 2 bucks to be able to toggle the Mitama's spawn rate, SMTs Metal Slime variant. For free is a super easy mode and languages.  

 

SMTV is the first time I bought Atlus DLC. I bought the fights but not the Mitama thing.  Using that as my baseline I would say I enjoyed the DLC fights and the Demons I got from them. Artemis I boosted into a late game monster and Cleopatra was a cool fight and fantastic healer. I haven't done the Mephistopheles (I think that's him) fight yet so i haven't  used him yet. I liked them but would say they really weren't worth the money honestly. 5 bucks for 1 fight and 1 summon is pretty steep. I just had the money to burn after buying it so I scooped. 

 

I don't know if that tracks to their other 3DS stuff but it does line up with their Persona DLC which is all expensive as fuck costumes and extra Persona so I would bet the DS SMT games are probably the same. Stuff you want cuz it's cool and quality but over priced regardless.

Yeah it lines up. I can't speak for all the games but usually on the games that have DLC, there are stages that make it easier to grind for money or experience, some special demons, harder post game style fights and sometimes extra story.

I'm flipping through the eshop looking at some of these deals before they end (alot of them end in 2 hours) and I feel like I missed out on some of the announcements.  Eshop is really trying to make me go broke on stuff that I hadn't planned on buying.  That Megaman ZX collection for 19.79 is super tempting. 

 

Edit:  Also Mario+Rabbids with the DLC is 15.99...might be a good idea for those interested in the sequel to jump on that now.  Deal is up for another 4 days.

Took a bit too long to grab FFXII and FFX-X-2 on sale for half off so kinda disappointed with that but I ended up buying MMX collection 1, Hades since I've heard nothing but amazing things about it from people here and elsewhere, Transistor even though I have it for free on my PS4...it was like 3 bucks and something so whatever, and finally dropped money on River City Girls since that was on sale, aaaand went ahead and bought that Megaman Zero/ZX collection.  Dunno when I'll get to play some of these but I got em for when I'm ready.

I've been using the OLED for like a week now and this is pretty nice. I wasn't really expecting to like it as much as I do. Bigger screen, better looking screen, kick stand is way better, Wifi connectivity is better too.

 

Really the only concern I have is I know OLED tv had an issue with burn in years ago. So it'd be interesting on how these OLED Switches will age (unless they've fixed those issues).

They have not fixed the burn in issues with the OLED so I'd recommend making sure your auto shutdown/auto sleep options are set pretty early.

OLED technology has gotten a lot better with the burn in issue.  Here's a video of a stress test on the OLED Switch:

 

 

I don't think you need to be overly concerned about it. Just make sure to put it in sleep mode when you're not playing it.

Looks like the OLED is holding up better than expected so I'll take the L on this.  Hadn't heard that OLEDs had gotten any better so this is actully good to hear.

My brother was home for the holiday, so we've been on a Streets of Rage 4 kick. Probably one of my favorite Switch titles. I haven't done much online play to see how well it works. With the DLC (highly recommended), my two favorite characters are Shiva and Estel. 

How much dlc is there and is it pricey? I bought the game but I haven't cracked it open yet

No need to hold an L, as they haven't fixed the issue completely. There is still a risk of burn in with OLED. It's just gotten a lot better over the last few years. I've done a bunch of research on it before buying my OLED TV and the consensus is that "normal" use shouldn't be an issue, as long as you aren't watching the same cable news network 24/7 so the logo is permanently displayed. Varying your content apparently goes a long way to protecting from burn in.

 

There's also image retention, which is like temporary burn in that goes away. From what I've read it seems like that will happen before any permanent damage is done so if you see it start happening it might be time to change the brightness or play a different game for a while. But it seems even the temperary retention only happens in extreme use cases.

 

To me, the positives of having such a beautiful display with perfect contrast, whether it be on an OLED TV or the OLED switch, outweigh the relatively small risk of burn in. There's a reason why the LG C1 is widely considered the best gaming TV of last year.

I think it was only $7 when I bought it around Christmas. You get three additional characters (Estel, Shiva (SOR4) and Max (SOR4). Regarding modes you get a fleshed out Training mode and a survival mode. Again solid add-on.

Good deal, as soon as I finish up Jamestown, I'll probably get started on that one. Would probably be a good game for my bro and I to play online

It's a great game for you and your bro. I was playing with mine till about 4 AM over the holiday and no regrets. Note he only comes out from Vegas 1 - 2 times a year, so we had to make due 🤣.

Finished South Park took like 24ish hours. I don't feel like this game is fully optimized for the Switch. One area of the map has some pretty bad slow down for some reason, the game crashed on me twice and soft locked another time. It's still a fun game. Also the end part has a Sonic Adventure 2 Battle reference which is pretty funny.

Ugh. Shorted out my 3DS. I ended up losing all of my save data on my downloaded games including Radiant Historia. I loved that game and was a solid 40-50 hours into it. It’s so good, I bought a physical copy so when my new 3DS gets here, if something happens to it, the save data is on the cartridge. First time I can recall where I’m willing to replay a game after losing dozens of hours of progress.

I'm starting to think Three Houses is low key garbage.

I mean the graphics outside of cutscenes do look a little low quality but for just the srpg aspects of maps, customization of characters and such I can't see where else that could be.

Nah, the graphics don't bother me. It's just a bunch of little things that add up.

 

Hard is piss easy. A bunch of auxiliary battles are harder than most main story maps. You're constantly outleveling and rolling through mooks with better stats *and* skills.

 

Maddening on the other hand vaults straight into bs.

 

A bunch of units are mixed. When do you have access to legit mixed units instead of mages with swords nuking your Str growth? Lv. 20 *with* DLC.

 

Classes are a mess, a bunch of random gender locks and the master requirements are just stupid, shoutouts to Mortal Savant.

 

The plot is turbo stupid too. CF was the biggest pumpfake I've seen in a minute.

 

There's some other nonsense like maps being lame af in general and the monastery exploration loop getting repetitive and tiresome very fast, especially with 4 routes of the same thing.

 

Whole game boils down to a bunch of weak execution mistakes bogging down an otherwise *really* good game.
