    I think the appeal is that you can play with others online. And of course it’s on your Switch system along with your other games that you can conveniently take on the go with you should you choose to do so.

    The general gaming public doesn’t really pirate old games I don’t think. Maybe they do ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Yeah basically just the Zelda and Mario games would be the only ones I'd have any interest in on Switch. Honestly I try to limit my video game playing time because it does take away from the music making, so I'm cool with what I have.

    But I certainly do have fond memories of playing the first Luigi's Mansion on the Gamecube and we even bought my sister in law the 3rd one for Christmas and I was like fuck yeah, dig that shit. So if I ever came across a Switch for like absurdly cheap, I'd consider it just to play those few games I'd want to.

    Keep your eyes peeled dawg. FB Marketplace and all that. Could probably get one later on this year for round $100 or less!

    Hey, at least you get your Mario Golf and Animal Crossing DLC. I was hoping for any Zelda except Skyward, but I knew deep within that Skyward was inevitable. Oh well, there is always the second half of the year.

    Haven’t touched AC in yonks. After 300 hours, I’ve moved on. I know that the game is meant to be casually picked up every now and again, but I just exhausted myself over first lockdown. Loved the game. The new updates don’t entice me enough to jump back in.

    Really bummed we got no BotW 2 info at all :(

    I am slowly playing that game, I don't get much video games in these days so I do like how I can just pick it up for a few minutes

    yeah considering how long ago they had to tease us about BOTW2 they sure have kept quiet about it...or could pull a metroid and cancel it completely

    I’m in the process of building a new gaming PC. Literally impossible to find GPU’s right now due to the pandemic.

    Yeah, thankfully I live like 10 mins away from a Microcenter. I’m shooting for a 3080... I’ve come across a few 3090’s, but they’re just too expensive, even at MSRP.

    I’ve been waiting since 2016 to get a 1070 class card. Down the line when new gens come out. Shit has held steady for almost 5 years now

    Best I could do is a $90 rx 580 off eBay from a miner dumping a haul of them

    They said it’s going smoothly but who knows. Nintendo needs to get their shit together. Simply porting old games and dropping generic ass anime hack and slash shit isn’t going to be sustainable. We need some quality new IP and some AAA Titles soon.

    I’m also talking about Retail and used value. Cards have been maintaining MSRP for years

    I agree, though it seems like the general fan base is happy with mostly ports of old games and DLC for already existing games.

    Don’t get me wrong, the ports are great. But it’s not a sustainable business practice.

    I had been playing The Forest until Valheim came out. Now I'm unexpectedly addicted to that

    Finished the Valhalla story. Was not expecting it to be so…I didn’t even know the word to describe it. Grand I guess. A story that spans millennia like that. Wild stuff. Ended up being really well done despite its ambiguity.
