If you are going remake Actraiser, at least make it look nice.

Kirby looks good though.

I haven’t played (or been excited for) a Kirby game in over a decade. But with this new game looking like Kirby in a Mario 3D World setting, I dare say this is preorder material.

Yeah I'll be getting that Kirby game too. Give me a few of those N64 controllers, too!

The consensus is mixed right now, folks on Steam are giving some good reviews. I've wishlisted it and will pick it up when it goes on sale.

Oh boy :rolleyes: If cloud gaming is indicative of how AAA studios will treat the Switch, stick a fork in it because it's done.

Monthly services like Xbox Game Pass? That's all well and good, it's a good value to get a decent library of games. But one-off, cloud-based collections? I hate it.

That's cool.

Via the cloud, not so cool.

A nice upgrade to be sure, but Nintendo just has a very bad track record with customers with all their terrible decisions. If the OLED model had just replaced the base model, no one would've batted an eye.

I won't buy a new Switch unless there's a substantial hardware revision. Nintendo would have to come back with another year's worth of titles like 2017-18 (Mario Odyssey, BOTW, Smash Bros, etc.) before I'd seriously consider a new system.

Even then, I'm really on the fence because of the Steam Deck. I use my Switch for indie and third-party games, which the Deck will have absolutely no shortage of.
