"with a lot of games". Sounds exciting. I wonder if it will not launch with Botw2? :baseballblob:

Yea DLSS will be huge for new Switch. The base hardware will continue being weak but with DLSS they will easily be able to upscale so many of the low res games to look really good on TV/Monitors. It will be a legit generation jump for most cases.

Nintendo has to set the example tho and get devs on board. They have to make the new Zelda and Pokemon have DLSS support.

Also people better prepare to pay for that premium Nvidia chip. Gonna be at least 400$ for sure now.

It will sell like crazy even with a 399 price tag. I only play Nintendo games and some Japanese console exclusives on Switch, but if there is a substantial disparity in performance I would pick this up asap.

I completed the second level in Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection. It only took 55 deaths and about 2 hours. Now that's what I call progress!

"with a lot of games". Sounds exciting. I wonder if it will not launch with Botw2? :baseballblob:

Hopefully devs go back and include upgrade patches for their older games. I'm almost somewhat dreading playing Monster Hunter Rise on Switch since the demo looked so rough and didn't have great performance. Also I think BOTW 2 was probably delayed until 2022 simply because COVID has delayed practically everything and Aonuma was so hesitant to mention it during the last Nintendo Direct.

But this is nintendo we are talking about, they never have anything other than old tech in their system.
Not that Nintendo believes in power first and foremost, but their previous revisions for portable devices have been beefy compared to the old models. Nintendo probably got a good deal out of this from Nvidia with a new chip.

This. Also, Nintendo doesn't shy away from new technology. They just don't value better graphics over everything else.

If anything, DLSS is an affordable technology that allows their system to do unexpected things, so it's right up Nintendo's street.

Nvidia are probably developing a DLSS Shield device anyway, so it may come from that.

So apparently Monster Hunter Rise is amazing, can't wait till Friday.
If I bite (which will be a bad idea for the budget) this will be my first physical game for many years. I just can’t with the digital price.

edit -
Waitwaitwait, PossiblyPudding has a switch too. I sense... I think I sense... co-op ?!

I'm really hyped for Monster Hunter Rise but since I'm buying it physically, I'll wait for a future re-release since Capcom is going to update the game with a proper ending. A shame since I wanted to play it in late March/early April but for now, I'll just put it elsewhere in my backlog.

I expected Botw2 being a 2022 game immediately after the direct, but after all these Switch Pro rumors, I am not so sure now... I think Nintendo will launch it with at least one big game, and that game is very likely Botw2.

Rise looks fantastic, but since I have yet to finish World and MHGU I might as well wait for the PC version.

The old PS web store has stopped working so now I and everyone has to use that new crap shit store goddamn I hate it.



I visited the old web store multiple times a week to check for sales on exclusive titles, I haven't bought anything on the new store in months. Have little overview of things.

I have 25€ in xbox store credit but never seem to find anything to buy.XD
Spare it. You never know when a game releases that you really wanna play that's not on game pass (I assume you have game pass since you have an Xbox), that moment will arrive at some point and you will be very happy you didn't use the money on something you were just semi-interested in.

It can be 2 week, it can be 5 months, it can be 9 months or more. So spare the money for that moment.

Then wait until the week before it expires before you decide. Write down a bunch of games your'e considering and eliminate the games you are least interested in.

I bought a console game for the first time in 3 years or so. And DLC too!

I normally really wouldn't do something like this but the power of Touhou + Hololive was too much for me. (I bought Touhou Spell Bubble + the Gensokyo Holoism DLC)

The Wirebug system in Monster Hunter Rise is really good. I love all the verticality it brings and how the levels suddenly feel a lot more fun to traverse. Sadly I haven't experience any sort of situation where it is used in monster fights yet, but it does make me hope future MH games have more vertical levels and implement it into fights.

I wanted a PS5 and a Series X with Gamepass. And games, like pre-2008 when we had money !
All I got are invoices, everything was invoices ! At least the masters will be happy, I paid for my heat, and my water.

I long for those simpler times.

MH strong as ever in Japan but I still doubt Rise can ever reach World's ww heights (and it's okay not to). I feel it's mostly for core fans, not those newcomers.

Also, by 22 we may be seeing the G upgraded edition for it, I wonder if the PC version will synchronise with that or just bring us the vanilla game at that point.

I'm really tempted to get MHR and would have if i didn't already have a ton of games to play in my library. It just means i have something to look forward to for later on this year when i've cleared out some of my existing games and saved some cash.

This game looks great. There's zero chance I'm paying $70 for a roguelite, but I'll rent it.

I don't know much about this game but I'm kinda interested for the cosmic horror. Then again, I would need a PS5. Then again, after Sony stunt with PS3/Vita, do I want a PS5 ?
Today is decidedly too full of what ifs for me..

After Sony decided to kill the PS3/Vita/PSP stores I'm out of their ecosystem. The value of their hardware and games bought on their platform plummeted for that reason alone.

I had a bit of cash set aside for a PS5 at some point this year, but now my new TV purchase is coming first.

The last Sony console I had was a PS3 and this just cements the fact that I won't be going back to that ecosystem ever again.
The absolute gall they had for putting that shitty "PLAY HAS NO LIMITS" slogan in the email I received was the last straw for me :disapproval-blob:

Do MS Rewards points expire?
Points dont expire. Once you exchange them for store credit, you have 60 days (i think) to spend it.

Yeah, I was thinking this as well. I'd like a PS5 but these signals of 'you better keep your hardware forever if you wanna continue playing these games' are horrible. I'm not going to stock up hardware and discs just cause Sony doesnt give a shit about their own games.

I still have some of the ‘I need the PS5’ hype but this damps on that a lot. I might as well wait for a price cut or Slim version.
Like say what you want about MS, the fact that you can play 50 OG Xbox games from 21 years ago on their new hardware is amazing.
