Games that you'd be willing to accept a dumbed down port of on Switch

With the Switch proving to be a success, out of the gate, I've heard rumblings that third parties are giving the console a second look. Some developers have stated that their IP's simply won't work since it would run at specs far below what they're comfortable with. There was, however, a rumor that ...

Re: Switch off to a strong start

I'm honestly shocked at the rate of success that the Switch has been enjoying, but I do think that people are jumping the gun on this a bit. Come back to me in a year. Nintendo was on to something with the Wii U, but they made the mistake of having it tethered to a hub (I so wanted to take it to the...

Re: 2017/5/9: Nintendo Switch: 1-2-Switch, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Now that I've finished the main game (having plowed through 92 of the shrines), I can say that it is in the top three of the entire franchise! Having said that, I did have some issues: 1). The stupid rain/lightning that rendered climbing impossible! This wouldn't have been so bad if the developers d...

Re: Nintendo 2ds xl

I wish they'd stop with the constant revisions of their hardware and start refocusing on releasing games for the friggin' thing! Honestly, at this point, I'd be happy if they put all of their handheld efforts into reviving the 3DS Virtual Console! Come on, they're still releasing VC titles for the W...

Re: Worst Songs From Your Favorite Bands?

THIS should be interesting. It's tough to rip your favorite artists, but which songs from your favorite bands just suck/are weak in comparison to the rest of the catalogue? Smashing Pumpkins-Tales of a Scorched Earth: Mellon Collie was a classic album that took a lot of risks, but this song is just...

Re: 2017/4/27: Lynx: Baseball Heroes, Ninja Gaiden III

Good reviews, but----how did a massively pixelated port with awful music and mushy controls get a better review than the NES original which, if I recall correctly, scored a C-? Shouldn't the better version get the better review?

Re: Lynx Vs. Game Gear

I didn't own, nor play, a Lynx until Christmas of 2010. Honestly, I immediately fell in love with it, and regret ignoring it in favor of the gameboy. Looking back, I would have loved to have been able to take games like Ms. Pac Man, Dirty Larry, Pit Fighter (I know, shut up), Toki, Klax, Dracula, an...

Re: Nintendo Switch Game Wishlist

If the rumor is somehow true, that From Software has managed to get Dark Souls 3 running on Switch, I'd kill for the rumored trilogy! Dark Souls on the go?! Yes, please! I'd buy the system tomorrow! I don't want the Switch to be a dumping ground for lazy ports and iOS games. I would like to see Nint...

Re: Ninja Gaiden 3 (Lynx)

When I still had my Lynx (God, I miss it!!), I managed to make it to the final boss in this scaled-down port. They actually did a pretty commendable job, even though the game was pixelated beyond belief and the music was pretty god-awful! What really hurt the game, though, was the mushy controls! Th...
