Capcom Games that could come to The Switch… Maybe?

Capcom has said that they are willing to put games on The Switch that might not have ever been released on Nintendo platforms before due to the immense popularity of the console handheld hybrid. Below are 10 games I think deserve to be on The Nintendo Switch, with no reasons justifying my choices. Fight me.

Dead Rising (Xbox, Xbox One, PS4, Steam)

I’m sure Switch will get games like the umpteenth port of The Gamecube exclusive title Resident Evil IV, and that Resident Evil V might come to the system because hey… it even has motion controls from the PS3 version… but I thought it would be fun to dream on possible ‘future’ titles.

If Switch doesn’t get KHIII, then what was the point?

khIIIArielandSoraKingdom Hearts is coming to The Xbox One this console generation, and since I do not own a Playstation 4, this is awesome. I remind people of this, because it is rare when a properly numbered entry crosses over from Sony to another platform. Thus far… this is… the first? Really? Huh.

So, thus far there is no PC port of any of The Kingdom Hearts game, and Switch is well…less likely than PC. Nomura says that they are focusing on the versions that are already announced thus far.

The Switch came out last year in a generation where Nintendo Wii Existed. If Switch is not powerful enough to run Kingdom Hearts III well, than I just do not get why I should buy one? I told myself ‘No KHIII on Wii U? Okay… but wait, Nintendo is releasing a system literally right before the new Kingdom Hearts game? Surely it will be powerful enough for it… right?’

KingdomHeartsIIImagicFinal Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata said that The Switch really can’t handle The Luminous Engine so as of last year they were looking into Unreal Engine 4 and Unity. Kingdom Hearts III uses Unreal Engine 4, which is compatible with Nintendo Switch, and Epic Games has released Unreal Engine 4 source code for Nintendo Switch for developers for free, so in theory… Switch should be able to play Kingdom Hearts III… in theory.

kh3SoraMonstersincI think the major bottle neck in a switch port might be processing power or memory, as Switch uses 2015 Nvidia technology similar to The Nvidia Shield. Nomura thinks that it is possible though, so here’s hoping that he is correct.

I feel that Nintendo needs Kingdom Hearts more than Square Enix needs their game ported to Switch. I also feel that if Kingdom Hearts III does not hit the console in any way shape or form… that wont look good to fans and 3rd party developers.

CloudSmashWhat if the PS3/4’s KH collections hit Switch and in 2-3 years Nintendo releases another console that gets Kingdom Hearts III while Switch fits the 3DS’s place, maybe getting it’s own Kingdom Hearts spin off. That would be, to me, terrible. Even if Nintendo had exclusive content, it would be a major failure to not have the game on Switch, and I’ll leave it at that.

Today is Sunday, and while for many it is a boring and useless day, for me… I’m about to go to work. Before I started getting ready though, what was I doing to fill my time, since Chick-fil-a is closed today. Well… I’ve been doing Twitch a lot lately… which games though?

Deadrising_boxartDig Dig? Well… no. that was a terrible idea, and I got no one watching me. I think I made it to level 8 once yesterday? So what is better? Dead Rising! It is a great game for a useless Sunday… and well… it was the only one I’ve played so far that got an audience, although it was just a couple of die hard Dead Rising fans.

Now that Dead Rising is on Steam, why not stream it, right? My new motherboard/processor is doing really well streaming this game.

What other titles have I tried? Dragonball FighterZ, Pac-Man Arrangement via Pac-Man museum.

FFX-2_boxIn the coming days, I’m going to try and play some more games on twitch casually. I do not have a capture card so nothing from Nintendo right now or Sony… but it turns out that I have a bunch of Sega games that I legally own on Steam that I bought on sale via Amazon a long time ago. Maybe I should take on Phantasy Star, Sonic, or Toe Jam & Earl? Definitely not Ristar… that game is too difficult.

So, with what’s left of today, I highly suggest playing some old games, even if it isn’t streamed on Twitch. Maybe Final Fantasy X-2? But not XII.

Anyways… I have to Pants-Up™ and go to work. Later!

Bulma was the hero we needed

bulma_wallpaper_jclpa-800x600Just imagine where everyone would be if Bulma had not found Goku’s 4 star Dragon ball using her Dragon Radar and going on a world changing adventure. The Red Ribbon Army would have probably conquered the world, most likely beating the would be savior Krillin who did not have Goku there to train with when he trained with Roshi.

Then of course Raditz comes along, destroys farmer Goku and The Red Ribbon Army and yeah… ultimately the world… until I guess Gero’s androids come online maybe?

I accidentally came across this video from Treesicle, and he points out how awesome Bulma actually is.

20180126123211_1When I booted up Dragon Ball FighterZ, Bulma was the first character that greeted me. Chi Chi? Goku? Heck even Piccolo would have not been a surprise, but Bulma? I was shocked to see her, especially after her voice actress had passed. It was bitter sweet and shows how important she was. *sigh*

I miss you Bulma.

I wasted $50 buying even more virtual console games on Wii

zeldaswitch_610The Wii store is coming to an end. March 27th, 2008 will be the last time to add Wii Points, and you will have until March 27th, 2018 to use those point on either Virtual Console titles or Wii Ware games… but it’s more than that. On that day in 2019, it seems that you will no longer be able to transfer your data from The Wii over to The Wii U, and you will also loose the ability to re-download purchases as well. That… is terrible.

I get that Nintendo wants to put their previous best selling console finally to bed, and kill off their Netflix-like-service for old game’s biggest competition, your old library, but making it no longer possible to re-download games that you paid for?

fatI thought a company would literally have to go under for something like that to happen. Imagine if this happened to The iTunes store. ‘Sorry folks, but that music on your old iPods can no longer be re-downloaded, and if we ever re-release those songs again… well… you have to re-buy them… maybe at a discount?

I only transferred my Wii virtual console games after it’s disc drive broke. The idea that the much younger Wii U, a system that died before it’s time, will be a tomb to these old games is really depressing.

Doremi_Fantasy_coverSo what games did I buy? Blaster Master on NES, Sonic 1 & 2 on Master System, Wild Guns, Donkey Kong Country 3,  DoReMi Fantasy: Milon’s DokiDoki Adventure on Super Nintendo, and Bomber Man on N64.

I bought a lot of virtual console games on Wii. Wii had a drought several times, and I used classic games to fill the void. I was the only one to reserve a Wii classic controller at the GameStop me and my friends worked at. A long time ago, my Wii’s virtual console library was worth more than the Wii was brand new! I feel justified being mad that if my Wii U ever breaks I wont be able to buy a new or used Wii U and transfer the data from The Wii channel! Hell.. once the shop goes down, if you never downloaded the Amazon, Netflix, or Hulu channels, you wouldn’t even be able to use the thing as a media box! This sucks!

xbxo-ss-blkIf only there was a service that made games from other systems backwards compatible, even if it was one at a time, and if you already owned the game… you could just download it for free. Sadly… I do not believe such a technology exists.

17 RPGs better than FFVII

rpgscover610‘(according to Game Informer)’ is what should have been in that title, I suppose, as I do not want to take credit or flack for this one.

Game Informer last year did a Top 100 RPGs of all time, and I going to my local Half Priced Books today bought it. Why? LOOK AT THAT ART! Chrono looks like a bad ass!

Final Fantasy VII is one of those games that has to be in the Top 25 of one of these lists, contractually. Let’s see what Game Informer thought was better, last year. Ultima Online, Secret of Mana, Pokemon Red & Blue, Deus Ex, Planescape: Torment, Fallout 3, Bloodborne, Final Fantasy Tactics, Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn, Diablo II, Starwars: KOTOR, W.O.W., The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Mass Effect 2, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VI, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Foto+Pokemon+BlueWOW! Shots fired! Some of those were on the list, I feel because they were the first to due whatever the did correctly, but ouch… The first Pokemon was a better RPG? I could believe lifetime sales wise, sure… but on the RPG part? I… just… really? Now I am a fan of Pokemon Blue… but come on. Since the list did not include Yellow which followed the anime more closely, I’m guessing that it was not the story that gave it the place of 15. It obviously was not the graphics either, and it could not be the music. I’m sorry, but FFVII had CD quality audio done by a much larger team! I’m guessing that this one was the first like it, made a huge splash sales wise, etc. and that is why… but WOW.

Final-Fantasy-VI_GBA_US_ESRBSecret of Mana, Final Fantasy Tactics, Chrono Trigger, and Final Fantasy VI… I feel like that is saying 2D FF’s>3D FF’s… or almost Nintendo>Sony. Do not get me wrong, these were some juggernaut games that just WOW… amazing on SNES… but the PS1’s Final Fantasy Tactics being there just… it’s a head scratcher. To trick people into buying this one, Square put Cloud in it. Is that why this is there?

pennyarcade3Screw Skyrim. There, I said it… and I feel like we can move on with out lives now. I also think that the third Penny Arcade episode should be on this list in general, especially since Undertale is in at #70. Weirdly, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild made it into the top 50, but no Ocarina of Time or A Link to The Past?  Is Persona 5 deserving of being #19 to FFVII’s #18? I have no idea… but apparently Game Informer did?

Whatever. For their entire 7 pages full of ads counting down to #1, they put it on their site on the first, and you can click here: http://www.gameinformer.com/b/features/archive/2018/01/01/the-top-100-rpgs-of-all-time.aspx
