This and Breath Of The Wild are going to be the first two games I get for the Switch when I get round to getting one! Straight on it with Mario Kart 8 too, that was by far the best Mario Kart game since the N64 version or Double Dash.

Looking forward to Metroid Prime 4 as well, praying they don't **** it up! Awesome that DOOM is on there too. Great game that.

All these games can be played truly on the go too. Talk about a selling point! The Switch does something that no other home console (ever) could do. 8-)

I have never had a modern nintendo console, i dearly love my gb classic and have a ds, thinking to buy 3ds because of its library and firmware scene, but man ! is the switch kicking ass with its softwares, seriously compelling titles making me consider buying a switch, too broke though :(

Like Microsoft are with AOE Definitive Edition remake Konami should do similar with undisputed cult classics WE9 Liveware Evolution or even WE8 or example.

I disagree, if anything I'd say that's true of PlayStation. Not Nintendo.

And I say this as a PlayStation guy admittedly, although I still love Nintendo it was my first and always will be. :lol:

The Switch is killing it right now, I only hope it continues. I'm extremely interested to see Metroid Prime 4! Just a shame Retro Studios isn't making it... :(

hmmm very interesting admittedly yes Ps1, Ps2 & maybe Ps3 too were solid as what do you thing about old school classics like WE9LE would you be interested in a ENG, HD remake of it?

The only way it'd work IMO is if they did what Double Helix did for the Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. Have proper updated graphics and assets over top of the original sprite work.

Also if they free up the game a little bit so you've more than 8 way control (therefor stick control) but not so much freedom of pass and move that the AI has a heart attack.

It'd also require lots of work on the audio side of things too. If it were to happen Konami of today would find a way to screw it all up anyhow - they used to hire geniuses and release pure quality whereas now they hire idiots and piss people off.

So under the right circumstances I'd be interested. Anything less and nah, not for me. Plus can get it on PC as it is pseudo remastered using any controller updated rosters any resolution and play online free - will have to Google how though.

What do you guys think of the handhelds ? I always like the idea of laying on bed and playing an engrossing RPG for hundreds of hours. I've been revisiting New Vegas again and i just wish there was some way to play it on a handheld, and what a game NV is. I could see myself buying switch near future as nintendo puts so much heart and effort into their games and haven't succumbed to pathetic lootbox culture which i hope they never will.

I need to get a Switch, and I hope BioShock Infinite comes out for it because that is a great game for me. Looking forward to Metroid Prime 4 too, I just hope it lives up to the particular franchise. The GameCube and Wii Prime games were awesome!

Regards to other handhelds I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 and I use that with a PS4 pad to play various emulators on the go. It's ace! Love it. 8-)

Not sure if you've got a Pro, I have and can honestly say performance wise it's what the original PS4 should have been. Boost mode makes all the difference.

Did you know the Switch is outselling the PS4 in Japan 3-1? Already eclipsed the Wii-U lifetime sales I think.

Nah haven't got a pro. Got my PS4 when Destiny came out (which was a fucking abomination of a game, imo). The whole slight upgrade of a console thing has put me off Sony and Microsoft's consoles.

The Switch has been a massive success which I'm actually delighted about. I always give Nintendo a hard time but glad to see their back to making actually decent consoles

Destiny was awesome in it's hey day, put like 3000 hours into it, was like one big social experiment so many cultures came together to raid do trials etc. had some amazing times.

Played D2 for a week, too much the same, nowadays it's all about that chicken dinner :)

Combat looks meh. But god what an eye candy the game is, and the setting is perfectly captured too. I hope there will be no downgrade because this looks unbelievably mindblowing.

The combat does look a bit weird but hopefully it's decent. Think it's out tomorrow, tempted to get it but I'll wait for the user reviews to come in

This game looks mental! Very similar to Shenmue....it's basically Shenmue mixed with Sleeping Dogs with a smidge of Japanese massage parlours with a happy ending! Nothing else quite like this out there.

Demo late Feb. Release April 2018. Screw it man I'm buying this! :lol:

Did you just discover yakuza ? Its an epic game, just in yakuza 0 ive spent over 150+ hours doing things. Was also lucky to play original yakuza way back when it first released in ps2. One of the reasons to own a PS.

No, I played Yakuza 3 on PS3 and I might have played briefly one of the earlier ones on PS2 via emulation.

Now is a great time to get back in to the series properly. I hope there's underground cage fighting/betting in the upcoming game!

I pretty much only play Shenmue for the mini games and sense of place because the voice acting and quality is awful, but Yakuza's is fantastic even though it's Japanese. And it has so much more mini games and from the looks of it a very gritty story.

Can see myself sinking a lot of time into Yakuza 6 for sure.
