    I like quiet exploration, so Breath of the Wild is right up my street. Sure, the rewards are not necessarily super exciting, but they add a sense of simple purpose that makes it interesting. I suppose future titles will iterate on this style, but I like the sense of not necessarily having a definite end goal and just heading off the beaten path when you're supposed to be somewhere else. It's also nice to be able to just figure stuff out.

    I gotta get back into BoW. I beat it on WiiU without the DLC, and it's the only port on Switch that I took the plunge on. It's kinda nice to be overwhelmed with too many things to play, as a poor person. Not too much time goes by and your backlog is huge, plus stuff goes on sale.

    I was immediately turned off playing MM11. I will have to give it another try before writing it off for good. So bland. And the music...is also so forgetable? How did this happen??

    Still need to beat Minit and Gris, both of which I fell in love with but got pulled away from. Oh and Downwell I will need to rebuy when that arrives...so cool.

    So question - How often do these sales come about?

    Because Splatoon 2 and Mario K8 Delux are big "I wants", but i cannot easily justify the money for them right now (Now with other, competing purhchases i want to make). On the otehr hand... sale. And 25% off (here in NZ land at least), is preddy good by nintendo standards!

    Any recommendations/comments?

    Here in NZ land the sales do not come around too often. Now and e3 times are when the big nintendo first party games usually go on their big sales. Digitally anyway.

    It is my favorite 2D Mario game right after SMW and I want it portable.

    Plus my GCU discount will make sure I don't actually spend 60 bucks on it. (I am going to miss GCU when mine expires :( )

    If portability is what you're after, I'd strongly advise against getting rid of your Switch version. ;)

    Three comments and a question:

    3) It's 2019. WHERE IS MY TERRARIA?!?!?

    Look at the joycon stick and you'll notice a little plastic hat covering that can be flipped up with a toothpick. Try either blowing in it with some canned air, or take a qtip soaked in rubbing alcohol and just swirl it around in there. That worked for me, just some dirt or dust that snuck in.

    I started reading these instructions and thought for a split second that they were the secret method to unlock Terraria

    So I got Dynasty Warriors 8... again. And it's sucking up a bunch of my time. Again.

    Although this time I'm going through Ambition Mode with someone other than Zhurong, so that's different for once. I've also managed to not buy Hyrule Warriors again.

    So, you know, it's cool. It's fine. I got this Musou thing under control. I don't have a problem.


    I also picked up DW8, despite owning the complete edition (there's an awful lot of DLC for a "complete" edition) on PS4 and still playing it. Also, I'm nowhere near finished with Orochi 4. I picked it up so I can play Ambition Mode while listening to podcasts. Started with Flute lady (her name escapes me...) since I don't think I've ever tried that weapon before, and it's dumb and awesome. Not only thwacking mooks around with a flute, but also using the power of flute music to send them flying.

    I bought Hyrule Warriors for the third time the moment it was available, though. So I don't have an ounce of control over my musou thing...

    Everyone has a price. Throw enough gold around and someone will risk disintegration.

    Is this version of Hyrule Warriors worth getting if you only spent like ~20 hours in the Wii U version?

    That depends on how much you loved those 20 hours I think. It's largely the same, but with the minor improvements and fairy dress-up game from the 3DS game. Definitely worth it if you didn;t play any of the DLC content. There's like, a million billion adventure mode maps.

    Like being able to one-cycle The Imprisoned's WPG. And damage taken for your rank is really fucking lenient now. You can buy item cards after you've acquired an item, so if you need a compass/lantern/bomb/whatever you can get one without waiting for them to respawn or replay a mission.

    And it has the Legends content if you never played the 3DS version.

    Have you tried other joycons or a pro controller? Sync your friend's joycons with your Switch and see if you don't have any trouble then. You might not have to send your whole Switch in if you can confirm it's just your joycons.

    Sorry, I should have included some more details.

    We tried the following combos:
    My Joy-Cons on my System (disconnecting)
    Friend's Joy-Cons on my System (disconnecting)
    Pro Controller on my System (no problems)
    My Joy-Cons on friend's System (no problems)
    Friend's Joy-Cons on friend's System (no problems)

    We only tried it docked, but I don't think it's the dock since we swapped the actual Switch tablet out.

    It works ok if I'm careful to hold the Joy-Cons level with the system and sit a bit closer than usual, but I think we ruled out it being the Joy-Cons having a problem.

    I haven't been this thorough but have the same issue with my right joycon on my system which is also a launch one. If you do get this resolved, please let us know.

    I'm playing Lu Lingqi, because she's new and I didn't really use her much in the Complete Edition. Her cross made of halberds looks ridiculous, but does do some neat stuff once the combos get going.

    Too bad her personality boils down to "I am the Daughter of Lu Bu (and also my relationship with Diaochan is never, ever explored, because Koei doesn't want to touch that subject with a ten foot pole)!"

    Was it a non-consensual encounter or something? Probably don't want Koei touching on the subject regardless if we get gems like Hattori Hanzo telling one of the female characters in Orochi 4 that she can't go on an intense mission because "you're a girl and you can't handle it" =/


    Though, I forget who exactly he was talking to. It might have been because he thought she was too young and it got lost in translation.

    No, it's not that.

    Diaochan didn't have any children, so she is not Lu Lingqi's mother. One of Lu Bu's other concubines was Lu Lingqi's mother.

    So either Koei pretends that Diaochan is Lu Lingqi's mother anyway (even though she wasn't), or they admit that Lu Bu had multiple concubines, which might get tricky age-ratings wise. Better Safer to just ignore the whole thing entirely.

    Three comments and a question:

    1) I think I need to get a new right Joycon at some point - intermittently, the analog stick drifts downward (not actually physically, but the system interprets downward analog stick motion). Recalibrating doesn't work. Sometimes disconnecting it and reconnecting it fixes it. Sometimes just shutting the Switch off completely and then turning it back on fixes it. It seems to crop up every few weeks. I've had it since launch; I'm assuming Nintendo won't fix it for me at this point.

    2) I just finished a run of Rogue Legacy for the first time! I'm in NG+ now! Whee!

    3) It's 2019. WHERE IS MY TERRARIA?!?!?

    Look at the joycon stick and you'll notice a little plastic hat covering that can be flipped up with a toothpick. Try either blowing in it with some canned air, or take a qtip soaked in rubbing alcohol and just swirl it around in there. That worked for me, just some dirt or dust that snuck in.

    If you are looking for something to scratch an Advance Wars type itch I highly recommend at least checking out Into The Breach.

    Completeling the various challenges in the game is extremely rewarding and its very much a series of punishing puzzles.

    Edit: And it might still be on sale?

    That's a terrible stand, though. Too tall, too easy to tip over (what with all the weight on top and by the sides), the joycons are in a tray, those cartridge slots are stupid...
