    Silly question - is there a way to purchase any of these digital games on sale before, you know, the boy opens the Switch on Christmas?

    I assume you have a Nintendo account of some sort to set up - but can you do so without the console? (My last console was a Wii about 10 years ago)

    You sure can!

    Edit: Though it's been a while, you may have to have your Switch linked to your Nintendo account.

    Do you have the console right now though? It would certainly be to your benefit to open it up now and get everything set up, download system updates and all that jazz.

    be sure to actually power it off before you box it up again by holding down the power button for 3 seconds and selecting "power options" > "power off" from the menu, just pressing the power button normally puts it in sleep mode and it might drain the battery out before xmas.

    It was a great Diablo-type Marvel game back in the day that we all assumed everyone had forgotten and would never see another sequel to.

    I recently setup a Switch that will be a Christmas gift. I opted to use my joycons and cell phone charger (you could use your Switch charger too) so the only thing I had to mess with is the packaging holding the Switch itself.

    It also wouldn't be a bad time to apply a screen protector.

    Man I didn't even think about setting up the Switch before wrapping it. We got one for our kids for christmas, it's the MK8 bundle. I should get it downloaded and ready to play.

    Thanks for the tip!

    EDIT: Should I set it up with my NID or will that cause weird issues? Maybe I should set up a family account and figure out if/how to link them so I can monitor it?

    I wonder if they'll port over Mortal Kombat 9 and 10. That'd be nice.

    Persona chars for Switch, that's cool.
    Crazy that they have DLC chars already. Doesn't the game come with like 70 fighters? Wild.

    So I really hope this means we'll get a port of Persona 5 at some point.

    So I don't really follow awards shows, but these were the games up for GOTY tonight at the game awards

    Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
    Celeste
    God of War
    Marvel’s Spider-Man
    Monster Hunter: World
    Red Dead Redemption 2

    One of these things is not like the others, and I mean that in the best way possible. I was absolutely blown away by Celeste and even though they didn't win, those guys and girls should feel damn proud about what they accomplished and that they were able to even be in the same category with those massive games.

    I am marginally getting a kick out of the Nintendo e-shop servers being hosed up right now? I was thinking of trying Smash out at Midnight, but it looks like that's simply not going to happen. Not sure it's actually unlocking at midnight regardless, no matter what the ads during the Game Awards seemed to indicate.

    Edit: Fucking nevermind. I'm in bitches! Smash is go!

    They announced a planned slate of 5 characters bundled with stages and music over the next year. Plus Piranha Plant as a standalone 6th char you can get free by registering in the first month of release or so (well, you get it when it's finished and released if you registered).

    So Reggie said the DLC characters are all new to Smash and ones you wouldn't expect to see. Oh man... what if they got Commander Shepard in there?

    They're already starting from "everyone is here" so by definition, any DLC character has to have not appeared before. ;P

    ...unless he means all new, as in they never even appeared as an assist trophy, in which case RIP my dreams of Isaac.

    Oh brilliant
  • The Dude With HerpesThe Dude With Herpes Registered User regular
    I'll be beyond baffled if a XC2 character doesn't make the DLC list.

    But aside from that, I would imagine any outside Nintendo characters that make it in would have to be in some way beneficial to Nintendo or have some history with them.

    Shepard, I would say, would not be on that list. Not to mention that for many people it wouldn't be their Shepard anyway, even if they did both the male and female defaults.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there were some more SE characters in there. DQB2 is coming out soon in Japan, I could see a DQ character show up. Any number of FF characters, particularly with SE pushing almost all the FF games from the past few decades on the Switch. Bethesda has been a super big Switch supporter, so maybe the Doom Slayer or BJ. If they managed to port FO4 there, there's any number of FO characters, even maybe just the Fallout Guy. Steve/Alex from Minecraft? Or if Microsoft wants to dump on Sony some, Master Chief? Nah, probably not. :lol:

    I could totally see "Generic Dragonborn" if Bethesda got a character in there, they pretty much use the same guy for all of their art + merch anyway.

    It could work, but it'd be hard to incorporate putting a bucket on another players head and stealing all their brooms and cheese wheels.
