If you've ever wondered, "why does Mario Odyssey have motion controls?!", Exhibit A: a small kid at my hospital only knew/had the dexterity to throw Cappy by shaking their Switch. Suddenly my least fav part of Odyssey... was still my least fav part

 
 
 

I'm playing OG Pokémon Snap and the requirements to unlock the next levels are more stringent than I would have imagined. I have to imagine there are kids out there who only ever played the first two levels (and also loved them to death)

 
 
 

Just beat Super Mario Bros 2 (USA) for first time. Thoughts in comments. Spoiler: a pleasant surprise... not quite GOTY every year

 
 
 

Prediction: Just as farming coins in Super Mario Odyssey was a pain before Luigi's Balloon World, some free update for Kirby will come that will give ample Rare Stones for weapon upgrades

 
 
 
 

Someone just used my BestBuy account (but not my credit card because I don't have it saved to my account) to buy shit... what's the point of that? They used their own credit card and shipped it somewhere in Oklahoma. I can only assume it's a stolen card

 
 
 

The Nintendo Switch Sports Soccer is Rocket League for dummies and I love it

 
 
 

Was just compiling a list of my favorite games per year for as far back as I can remember (so 1997 onwards). It's incredible to me that like... 80% of the games I have played, I played between the ages of 13 and 17. Before and after that it's slim picking

 
 
 

There ain't enough platinum coins to furnish my stupid Switch icon-collecting addiction

 
 
 

Did anyone else find Squid Game to be... ok?

 
 
 

As always with NSO, I don't have real complaints - just questions. Today they put up Earthworm Jim 2, but not the original Earthworm Jim... why?

 
 
 

March has almost come and gone and no new Scott the Woz which can only mean the "Nintendo Switch - 5 years in" must be at least 8 hours long

 
 
 

BestBuy worker today holding my preordered copy of Kirby: "I can't give this to you. It comes out tomorrow. I'd get in trouble." Me: "Is there someone here who could give me it and not get in trouble?" No early Kirby :(

 
 
 

For anyone on the fence about the MK8 DX DLC, GameXplain has a Let's play online for all the new tracks - it looks awesome. Link in comments

 
 
 

Toying with getting Animal Crossing: New Horizons now that the game finally seems "done." But how do holidays work now? Do they happen as expected? If I change the clock to Christmas will it be Christmas?

 
 
 

Anyone else have a long "active backlog". Not the regular backlog of shit you buy and have never touched, but like a backlog of games you played for a decent amount of time, dropped, but do want to finish? Put mine in the comments, this year Imma clean it

 
 
 

Wanted a quick palate-cleansing, backlog clearing game after Earthbound Beginnings so cleared Balloon Kid. Worth it for the current price on the eShop. Imma leave this masterpiece of a song here



 
 
 
 

Was halfway through a grand prix in MK64 and realized my heart was racing. Not because of the gameplay or difficulty, mind you - the lack of music is so unsettling. EDIT: turns out this was a glitch in NSO's emulation. All good now

 
 
 

PSA: no earthbound yet EDIT: NOW EARTHBOUND

 
 
 

5 Takeaways: 1) Nintendo finally got me to jump in on the expansion pass with now the MK8 DLC 2) Eagerly awaiting Earthbound - will be first playthrough 3) Klonoa 4) Chorno Cross 5) Kirby = day 1 purchase

 
 
 

Why has no one has mentioned that we could get a new look at Chris Pratt Mario tonight?!

 
 
 

So it's really gonna be called "Triangle Strategy"?

 
 
 

Sure, there's the Moon Theme from Ducktales and the entirety of Mega Man 2's soundtrack, but in terms of music I'd actually relax and listen to, Kirby's Adventure has the best soundtrack on the NES. Truly sounds at least 16-bit in its complexity

 
 
 

Every day as the dawn of the 3DS eShop's closure draws near I wonder, "maybe today's the day Nintendo will have a closing sale!" And each day I resign myself more to one day paying minumum $40 to play OG Luigi's Mansion (or tons more to play on GameCube)
