I'm an early riser and like to play video games around 5-7AM. The Animal Crossing game for the DS had the Early Bird option, where you could change your town to be active early, with stops open earlier and villagers active. 

 

Does the Switch version have anything like this? Posting my question here to avoid spoilers on other websites.

Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse - $19.99 - 33% Off - Ends 4/13

I wish the DLC was on sale too. They probably forgot about it.

I don't think I've ever seen 3DS dlc go on sale. Although not like it's easy to check for that kinda stuff since it's not on the eshop.

3DS DLC is not only rarer, but also tougher to find, since most of the time, you have to access it within the game itself, or announced elsewhere to find out if they are on sale. Atlus in the past frequently placed their DLCs for SMT4 and SMT4A on sale, and usually would find out through their newsletter. (Cannot recall the last time I've seen it.)

In case not mentioned, or anyone interested...
I got Sonic Mania and the Genesis Collection. Bought the Retrobit 6 button controller.
It feels amazing. No issues there.
The problem lies with the button mapping. And since you can't fully customize controls in the Genesis Collection, you're stuck with a weird configuration that doesn't feel like a Genesis game anymore..
Buttons are mapped like a Switch.. So in Streets of Rage, you're using A and B for punching and kicking, Y for specials. Can't use Z or C, as they're ZL and ZR, rewind and fast forward. And unfortunately there's not many choices in the emulator for controls, and with the emulator controls being busted, of course in game will be too.
Simpler games I imagine would be fine.. But anything that can use the six buttons, I don't think this is a very viable option as is.
Just a heads up..

Not that I ever saw.

 

You could permanently set your clock to be 3 hours forwards though.

Anyone have any opinions on volgarr the Viking? It looks punishing which I’m not too interested in right now.

I got yesterday and played a little. It does seem pretty hard, but also seems surprisingly polished for a buck. Also seems to be heavily inspired by the old arcade game Rastan, which I used to love.

Would be a great game to play with friends and take turns to see who can get the furthest (when people are allowed to have friends again, that is).

Overall, for a buck I'm satisfied.

What a great idea. I'll try it! Not sure if the Switch checks time by internet.

It has an option to sync with the internet for the time. All you would have to do is unselect the option and set your clock ahead 3 hours.

Yes! It works! That's so great. I haven't been playing as much as I wanted, because the game wasn't fun to play at 5am real time. I adjusted the time, turned off internet time sync, and now I can have my town be active when I want to play.

 

Thanks guys!

After you posted this, I remembered that the developer made the Sega Dreamcast version free to download several years ago.  If you have access to a Sega Dreamcast emulator and feel so inclined, here's the link to the developer's website.

I've had it a while on XB1, think it was a Game with Gold at some point.  Tried it last Fall for the first time and yes it is very punishing.  Think Rastan with a Dark Souls type edge.  The first stage is practically a clone of Rastan's first level.  You can do it, but expect to die.  A lot.

 

It is pretty high quality though and plays great.

I am discovering this as well with the 8bitdo M30. I am having trouble with the Sega Ages, where you can remap the buttons. I can’t even get Lightening Force started. Pressing start takes you to the Emulator menu and I can’t find a button that will actually start the game.

It’s great for Sonic games, I guess.

The M30 doesn't work so great with my Switch Lite. The input lag is out of control; we're talking a half second delay here. I'm using Hyper Sentinel as a test game.

Have you updated the firmware for the M30?

I think I remember reading somewhere that you can switch the input mapping for some of the buttons in the M30 directly by holding some buttons down, but it might have just been switching A and B. Not sure.

Info below pulled off the top review for the M30 on Amazon: 

 

 

Here's how you swap buttons and change what stick/d-pad the d-pad counts as

UP+MINUS: DPAD
LEFT+MINUS: L JOYSTICK
RIGHT+MINUS: R JOYSTICK

DOWN+MINUS: A-B/X-Y

Hold 5sec swap layout

This isn't in the manual for some weird reason, but is extremely helpful.

As for the controller itself, it's great, the d-pad is wonderful, buttons feel nice, no complaints now that we know how to swap buttons and stuff. Now A/B/X/Y do the same thing as the pro controller, Z=L, C=R, L=ZL, R=ZR, this stays even after swapping buttons

Thanks! I need to play with it a bit. Admittedly, I haven’t messed with it too much. I have the 2.4 G version, not the Bluetooth, so I’ll have to see if it works the same.

Has anyone seen Dillon's Dead Heat Breakers and Inazuma Eleven go on sale recently?


Dead heat breakers has never been on sale. Last month club Nintendo had a 40% discount for DRW: The last ranger that could be bought with platinum coins. I’m hoping for a sale too as I’d like to complete the trilogy. I think inazuma eleven has been on sale before, but that was a long time ago when level 5 sales were frequent.

I grabbed Rise: Race for the Future and while it's got a steep learning curve to it, it looks gorgeous on Switch and is the best-looking racer I've played in portable mode. Fantastic deal at $12 and change.

Can anyone give recommendations from the Atlas 3DS games on sale? I turned my 3DS on for the first time in probably 3 years and thought maybe I'd buy a couple of the 9.99 games if there are some that stand apart from the rest.

it's 19.99, but my strongest recommendation of that bunch is Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology

Can anyone say anything about Invisigun Reloaded? It's on sale for a buck (usually 20).
