That Blosom Tales stream was pretty solid.  I skipped around in it just to get a feel for the game but that looks like something I'd enjoy.  Thanks for picking something lesser known.

Blossom Tales is a must own.


And a couple weeks ago the same was said about Ittle Dew 2 (yet another Zelda Lite)...it did not dew it for me. Not bad though. "Must own"? No way. Blossom Tales needs to have a far steeper discount than 30% IMO as it's a small unknown indie released in 2017 and with so much competition. Guess it's banking on being a Nintendo darling in order to make sales. Maybe I'll try once it's dirt cheap (if that ever happens)

I also bought Ittle Dew physical a few months ago and returned it. A better game in my opinion is Cat Quest.

Too late, the game sold well enough on the Switch to keep the company solvent. This was a successful game on the Switch already at regular price.

It’s a good game but I’m not going to tell you it’s must own. If you like 2D Zelda that’s what it feels like except a bit faster. The puzzle elements are good but I would say they rely on the same type too much.

Anyone recommend Moonlighter? I've been tempted by it on PC but would love it likely on the Switch.

I've been enjoying it on the PS4.  Not a bad game at all to pickup.

It's pretty fun. I have it on Switch and ps4. I honestly have as much fun loading up on items and selling them as I do everything else in the game. It can get repetitive at times though

Minute is being sold for almost the same price as the the entire Humble Bundle for March, which includes Minit. Just an FYI for those interested but not willing to pay premium price for an old unknown.

Uhh, Humble Monthly is $12, which is twice the price of it on Switch right now.

 

I'm not saying it's not a good deal (3 other known games included, plus other unknowns), and you can probably get it for $10.80 with minimal effort, but I wouldn't call twice as expensive "almost the same price."

I liked it, but it's not the best. A solid 8/10 or so? I played on PS4 though, and I don't know about the frame rate on Switch. It's definitely a bit Racetear.

I vote for blossom tales. Btw, when you do these streams, I don’t see a link or embedded video in your post. I’m on CAG on my phone 99% of the time so maybe it’s because it’s CAG mobile? All I see is your text saying the stream is live, and a whole bunch of blank space.

Sorry about that, but I think it's a CAG issue since I just post the link to the page itself. You could also follow so you don't have to worry about CAG's weird embed stuff.

I have it for both Xbox One and Switch. I really enjoy it. It took me a while to beat it but when you get more into the game you can speed things up once your store is big enough to hire a helper. Then you can go to the dungeons during the day and still make money during the day without being at the store. They also added some new updates to the game that add companions, new mini bosses and new game plus.

What does everyone else feel about the Wall Street Journal article about the 2 new versions of the Switch rumored to be coming out?
I can't link the WSJ article because it is subscription, so here's The Next Web.

 

This could be interesting!

Make a $200 console that comes preloaded with Tetris 99, and I'll buy at least 2.

A Vita-sized Switch would be amazing and I could finally take it out of the house.

I started looking into this game, it looks interesting and would like to get it at some point.
Now to figure out which will be cheaper, the eshop or cartridge version and when to get it.

I'd love an actually portable Switch. The current form just isn't practical for anything but lounging on a sofa or bed.

I think if they go with a portable switch and a powerful switch. I might upgrade to the fancy one if they make it worthwhile.

All I've wanted since the NS was first shown, was some form of lite/mini, as almost everything that makes the Switch a Switch, I could care less about. I have zero interest in connecting a handheld to my TV, no desire to remove the controllers, or scan Amiibos or HD rumble. All of these "features" comes at a cost and why I have refused to buy an NS until it reaches $200 or less.

 

I think if they go with a portable switch and a powerful switch. I might upgrade to the fancy one if they make it worthwhile.

If they do offer a "pro" of some time, I really don't see what they may have planned, especially since the base unit is $300, so a pro I would guess would fall in the $400 range. At best it may match the base PS4/ONE, but with new versions of those systems on the horizon, this doesn't seem a great idea at the moment, but who knows?

 

Now if they just offer a "new" version, like they did for the 3DS where they give you some extra bells and whistles and discontinue the previous model, then it's a great idea(keeps the same $300 price). But some have guessed this may be a way for the NS to keep getting the ports it has been, as the divide is only going to get bigger the next gen, and ports to the NS may fall off if it becomes to hard to downgrade PS5/Two, etc. So in this situation, a pro may help them to continue getting proper support, but only time will tell.

I think you mean couldn't care less.  If you could care less, then you wouldn't have zero interest in those features.

 

 

Anyways, I can't really imagine Nintendo removing the docking feature, at least.  I feel like that's the main draw of the Switch - the ability to use as a handheld or a console.

  Why would tetris being preloaded be a draw? It's free, and unlike the fortnite edition, there are no microtransactions tied to the game.

Yeah, I could say the same about the "3D" of the 3DS, as it's in the title of that system, but that was removed, as many didn't want or need it, especially to the higher cost of a feature some couldn't even use(due to health issues).

 

 

  Why would tetris being preloaded be a draw? It's free, and unlike the fortnite edition, there are no microtransactions tied to the game. 

Technically it's not free, as it's a part of their online service. Which is another feature I have no plans to pay them for anytime soon, as I see zero value in old NES games(or online play). Tetris 99 is pretty cool, just not something I'm willing to pay an annual service fee for.
