As someone who like playing there switch in handheld….I’m not that impressed.
Things I like:
- I don’t have to worry about the joy-con slipping off.
- equal weight distribution.
- The heat vent is WAY larger.
- The smaller controllers look easier to cup my hands around (That extra 2cm of wasted space on the joy-con is very noticeable in handheld mode).
Things I don’t like:
- joy-con plastic feels flimsy (I don’t know how I feel about having an entire console encased in it).
- “If a game supports Joy-Con functions such as HD rumble, IR Motion Camera and Joy-Con motion sensors, some features will not be available using Nintendo Switch Lite alone.” Is this referring to the gyro? If so, Splatoon (a game I play a lot in handheld) is going to be difficult to play.
- Replacing the sticks is going to be a nightmare.
Those are just my quick thoughts.
I have played though ‘super mystery dungeon’ and i’m about to beat ‘mystery dungeon explorers of time’.
I was really worried replaying these games due to the fear of them not living up to how I original viewed it.
super mystery dungeon: It had good ideas, too bad that the game was poorly programmed. Don’ get me wrong, this is by far the best game when it come to engagement with the game play. The problem stems from the game having horrendous power balancing issues along side nonsensical RNG (random number generator).
Just like the original ‘mystery dungeon red/blue’ this game feels like it could have been cable of so much more.
It felt like it was hampered by:
- what the 3ds was capable of.
- The size.
- Time constraints
There are loads of world destroying Pokemon, have some fun with the many different stories you could tell (Instead of giving me a tree of friend dungeons create a tree of expletive stories). You could even tie it all together with a story like:
A human collected every Pokemon, but they were treated as nothing more then trophies in there collections. You must now journey out and meet every Pokemon you mistreated in order to return back to your world.
Plot twist, by helping each Pokemon with there problems you are setting them free in your world. This creates conflict in the main lead when they have to set a legendary free into help his new world expand.
You could even work in the building mechanics from ‘gates to infinity’.
I could easily write a story for this game!
mystery dungeon explorers of time: After playing this again I can see exactly what ‘super mystery dungeon’ was trying to copy with its story. I think the reason why this game stands out from the two 3DS games is that it feel like it was the complete vision of ‘mystery dungeon red/blue‘. Unfortunately for the first game ‘mystery dungeon red’ had to be playable on a GBA (gameboy advance), while ‘mystery dungeon blue’ is a DS game.
I found myself getting more into the story thanks to the sprite being so simple, it forced me to imagine what was going on. With the 3d games that’s a a lot harder to do thanks to the emotionless models, they still show to a small image of what there feeling in a box…. but you can clearly see from the models that nothing is actually happening.
My next game to play is ‘gates to infinity’….at least the music is good.
I want to talk about this from the side of someone who like games.
Do I think the graphics look good? no, it looks really bad at times.
The shadows seemed to have a mind of there own.
Even when the girl leaves the house (15-17sec) the shadow on the ground looks like it’s having seizure.
Plus you have to love that poor Photoshop background during fights.
How could we leave out the beauty of the trees.
If it wasn’t for the detail of the charterers models, I could easily confuse this for a ps2/ xbox 360 game.
The only section that looked good was when they were doing the rotation shot.
This definitely feels like they just tweaked the 3ds engine.
I hope that a lot of these things are just stand-ins and will be fixed in the final product.
I’m honestly confused about this.
I have been getting ‘let’s go’ garbage turning up in the news feed? It wouldn’t be so annoying if ‘let’s go’ didn’t have its own channel.
O_O I don’t care who Liam and or bird man are, stop filling my news with stuff I didn’t subscribe to.
There not even reviews!!! Anyone can just pull a random fan off the street to talk about how grand a game there obsessed with is.
If your going to do that Nintendo can we please have a name that holds some weight.
At the moment you may as well say Stevens mum loves the game.
mum: “It was a magical experience”
Can someone please tell me why I need two copies of the game to play this one game?????
O_O Isn’t it enough that there are two switch’s in the house!
Y_Y NINTENDO, just put out a free download code for that one game (only need one copy). They can’t play it unless they have the game anyway.
Am I just meant to find people who have the game and say, “Can I just borrow your switch to match up some bananas.”
IT’S A ONE PLAYER GAME!
The problem with Pokemon games (my problems with ‘let’s go’).
XD I have a lot of frustrations with this game series.
^-o That dead line actually motivated me to reach my goal (I wanted to double my word count). one can easily loose focus when trying to compile all there thoughts into one document.
^-^ Think I’m getting close to doing the final draft!
Hope someone will want to read it when i’m done.
Additional: Going to be taking a weeks brake from this project (the next sections that I will be tackling is going to be a pain).
This project is moving slowly, I need to keep up my motivation in order to complete it. It’s hard to come up with ways to describe curtain topics at times.
I have had to go on long walks some days in-order to ponder over how to write it down.
^-o To make my life much easier I added a contents page.
Guess I could update (anyone who is interested) this blog on my progress every 2 weeks (might make me work faster).
Name of document: The problem with Pokemon games.
let it be known that I have a problem with ‘lets go’ and I have no problem writing a book about it.
Are they going to be redoing all of the monster voices or are they using beeps?
I only ask this because Pikachu is the only Pokémon in game that uses its anime voice.
This ball will be useless if they are using the game cries (all the Pokémon from Kanto and Johto sound the same).
It’s not until you get to Hoenn do the cries start sounding unique.
I wanted to get down all my thoughts on the game.
XD My word count is currently at 1500 (I’m not even near done yet).
Dose anyone have any suggestions towards topics (around this game) I should look at?
*This has to be the biggest post I have ever done for this blog. *
I’m finding that when I answer one question another turns up.
