I switched?

Switch_SuperSmashBrosUltimate_illustration_02I’ve had the newer model of The Nintendo Switch for less than a month, and have 2.2 GB left, and that depresses me. I own: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and it’s fighter pass, Super Mario Maker 2, Blazblue’s demo, Crypt of The Necrodancer, Garou: Mark of The Wolves, The King of Fighters 2000, Revenge of The Bird King, and Youtube.

Switch_ACANEOGEO-TheKingOfFighters2001_03Some of the games that I own were because they were as cheap as a penny, others I discovered when I learned that buying games got me coins that I could use to buy more games, and another just a sale this week. It’s depressing how small the storage space is of The Switch.

Getting rid of photos and Blazblue makes me have 4.9 GB. I thought getting an 8bitdo pro+ controller would be great for games, but I returned it in under a week because the left analog stick was messed up, which is a common complaint. I learned it though… playing Dead Rising on PC.

n64The Switches buttons on the Joycon controller is bad. The ▲▼◄► / YXBA buttons are too small. I didn’t like using the C-Buttons on the 64 for Mortal Kombat Trilogy, and I don’t like using their modern equivalent to do Ryu’s hadoken move in Smash.  The offset analog sticks guarantee that I pick up the system upside down… since The Switch it self is just a small black tablet. The joycons cramp my hand because they are too thin. In other words… I really wish that the 8bitdo controller had worked out. Playing the Switch for extended time hurts my hands, and while I’m playing a game, I often feel clumsy on it’s buttons compared to older consoles.

I tried to get a new controller today, but I don’t think I’ll like a $70 Pro controllers D-Pad, and I hear they have problems on PC, which is important to me given how small the storage space on The Switch is. Cheaper controller options lack features… so one day I will get to a point where I need X feature, and I wont have it. I basically have to either plan around what game I want to play today, or take the hit in case my next favorite game requires HD rumble, gyro controls, or Amiibo support. I feel bad for parents who are confused why their daughter’s new Pikachu controller isn’t good enough for whatever game they also just bought.

Breath of the wild expansion

Getting The Switch late might have been a problem. I know I can get an SD card… but a 1 TB Micro SD card costs $430 on Best Buy right now vs. a 5 TB external HDD for $110. I guess I’ll keep Breath of The Wild on my Wii U for the time being? 32GB internal HDD isn’t a lot of space.

All of the games are still kind of expensive… which is what is to be expected on a Nintendo platform. If I bought a game on a cartridge, most of the game probably wont even be on the cart though. *sigh*

I should have waited until next year to buy The Switch pro, which we all know is certainly going to be a thing… eventually? Right?

Making Them’s Fightin’ Herds

Youtuber Hold Back to Block made a 41 minute documentary about the story about the developers Mane6 as well as their game Them’s Fightin Herds, as well as the introduction towards them discovering My Little Pony.

I need to spend more time with Them’s Fightin Herds. Maybe I will play some and stream it on Mixer?

switchWhen Switch was coming out, I joked that they should just include an NES classic pre-loaded onto it and everyone would buy that. Then they basically did that with their online service having NES games. A year later, SNES games. Awesome, I suppose… but it’s not the Virtual Console. The games that you purchased before aren’t all on this paid service. Still no N64, Sega Genesis, etc. and we should be happy? Eh… I’m good still.

zelda lttp screen shot heartI can play old games on my classics, Wii U, or phone… so the thrill just isn’t there. I’ll still get Switch eventually, but not because I can play Super Metroid on the go… because I’ve been doing that for a decade play on a tablet using a wii mote w/ classic controller. Seriously… the wii mote was blu tooth, after all.

I might get a Nintendo Switch sometime soon… after all, Terry Bogard is coming to Smash in November.

Terry in Smash!

I, and many others, were right that the SNK representative in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was Terry Bogard.

He will be coming out in November of this year. thus far in the fighter pass we have: Joker from Persona, the Hero from Dragon Quest, Banjo & Kazooie, and there still is one more character in this pass that will be later revealed.

Below it the… umm… Mr. Sakurai direct about everything new coming to Smash soon/today? A better look at Terry Bogard as well. best thing revealed? You can play as Sans Team Rocket Grunt via a costume for your Mii! Awesome!

SNK in Smash?

Me KOFApparently there has been a Smash Bros. leak, and the next character DLC has copyright on it from SNK… so you know… the people who created Athena, Fatal Fury, Samurai Shodown, and King of Fighters.

Some people are predicting Haohmaru from Samurai Shodown, which would make sense considering that the latest entry in that series will be getting a port to Nintendo Switch in December of this year.

Note that in the trailer, they use the Japanese name Samurai Spirits instead of Shodown.

DSCN0057While Haohmaru makes sense, I would like to remind everyone that SNK’s first game on the switch was SNK HEROINES Tag Team Frenzy. I could totally see them releasing their gender bent Terry Bogard alongside his typical male self as an alternate character model for the DLC.

Why am I so sure that it will be Terry Bogard with his Fatal Cutie form? That game came out in September of last year on the 7th, and it’s a weird coincidence that we are finding out about DLC from SNK right before that date.

Terry would not be the first character to have male and female forms in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and given how many alternate models they used for the hero from Dragon Quest, I argue that it is not outside of the realm of possibilities for Male/Female Terry inside of Smash. Also, if they do, they will have a trailer pitting him against Ryu from Street Fighter.

SNKCapMatchGroupNow, I am not saying that they, [SNK, Capcom, Nintendo]  are going to use this as an opportunity to drop a new Capcom vs. SNK announcement on the world. That would be crazy.

What I am saying is that they might use it, and I stress might, use it as an excuse to drop the trailer for SNK vs. Capcom: The Waifu Warriors! Have a bunch of female brawlers duking it out from both the Capcom and SNK side as a sequel to both the Vs. series as well as SNK Heroines.

Okay. That idea might be way way way too far out there… but it would be amazing if I’m right about my predictions. I guess we will find out soon if I’m right.

Or hey, maybe there will be some Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) DLC, and they used the SNK used the abbreviation to throw people off.
