I'm hearing over the top reviews of the new Zelda game. Will you be buying a Switch?

I'm sort of an unrepentant retro gamer.  I'm allergic to buying anything new.   ;)   But I heard that game by itself is reinvigorating Nintendo stock.

Lots of 10/10s but it's new and it's really the only game for the system right now. I've never been a superfan of the series but it looks fun, if you're into a world exploring game. I'm with you though. I'm more interested in getting a Raspberry Pi 3 and installing RetroPie on it.  8)

I'm still not sure I'll be hopping on that bus or not. I'm leaning toward not though. Like I said, I'm really more interested in getting a Raspberry Pi 3 for way less money, anyway.  ;)

If you're lazy, there are pre-config'd ones on ebay that come with controllers etc.  Just add games.   ;)

Thanks, I'll look into that. What are they going for?

I saw 'em for like 99 bucks.  I'm tempted to pick one up myself, then just plug into my hdtv.

No, and certainly not in current form. Seems to be having a lot of launch issues:



Personally I think Nintendo have been going downhill since the N64, and the fact that they are constantly releasing the same rehashed games shows that. They really fucked up by not buying Rare when they were at the peak of their game.

Another option for Retropie-style gaming:

I have a Gravis-style USB gamepad hooked up to it. Plays DKC and Mario RPG like it's nothin'.

In other news, the Switch joycons look super duper cramped. This does not appeal to someone like me, with large hands.

I would at least like an Ace Combat remastered collection. Most of those games would actually benefit from the improved graphics and physics, plus some of them had no Western release.

Great series! Did it endure beyond the PS1?

I'm always down with more flight combat games.  :)

Yep, there have been probably 5 main series games + a number of handheld games since the ps1. There should be a new one out in the next 12 months:

Cool! When you say handheld I assume you mean the games released for the PSP, right?

I'll have to look for the GBA one. I'm not crazy about playing games like this on mobile devices though. Need sticks.

I can't imagine that'd be any good. Assault Horizon is on PC, but that wasn't that great a game.
List of games with what platform they're on is here:
