Have you played Tetris Effect on PS4/PC?

Whoah, that looks amazing!  I like the aspect of battle Tetris at the moment but I might check that out if it gets a decent price drop

Watch some speedruns of the game, and the different game modes makes it highly replayable (even more so than Tetris naturally is)

14th!

It'll be tricky choosing which game to commit to in the next couple of weeks tho. The 11th will be the 20th anniversary of System Shock 2, and the 15th will be when Ion Maiden Fury is finally complete and out of early access. And I recently restarted Mutant Year Zero and figured out how to play it correctly and am getting quite into it ATM.

I just have the SF30 without the thumbsticks. It's great for Mario Maker and other 2d games. They make good stuff, I want their Saturn pad.

Yeah. The sn30 pro is great with mario, I don't regret buying it I guess. Pro controller is great but the pro plus just looks really good. Maybe in the future I'll buy that as well.

Breath of the Wild is amazing and totally worth buying a Switch for.

some of the colors are off, and those mutated turtles look much different in the arcade version. also- the music is somehow different. 

the atari lynx had the closest port of the arcade game

I had the Lynx version! Chip's Challenge and Slime World were my faves (oh, and California Games).

If this works well in psvr I think I will be lost to the world for a while.

The original has its charm, and you could always just use an AC adapter in lieu of rechargeable batteries

you kind of have to use the ac adaptor unless you own a battery manufacturing plant. don't know how much the new battery improvements work but i like the new lcd modifications

i used to have a sega game gear and it pretty much made portal gaming impossible

Yeah, the Game Gear, the Lynx, Sega Nomad (LOL), and the TurboDuo Express were all battery munchers - the Game Boy (and it's successors) were all really good on batteries I remember, until the rechargeable built-in batteries became the norm.

How to tell which Switch is which (the newer one on the left with better battery life vs the old model):

dl7bhros1gzyestgmbic.jpg

Switches with the expanded battery will have serial numbers that start with “XKW,” and the following model numbers:

HADSKABAA for units with blue/red Joycons.

HADSKAAAA for units with grey Joycons.

or HAC-001(-01)

The model number for older Switches is HAC-001—note the lack of the (-01) suffix, which is only included on models with better battery life.

Pretty much what I did, but Mario Odyssey has been a lot of fun too.

Initial reviews of the system are very positive - sounds like SEGA/M2 really put their heart into this little guy, even more so than Nintendo or SNK did (Konami with the PC Engine Mini TBD), although SNK gets my nod for best hardware (making it a mini arcade unit instead of just a mini NEO·GEO was a stroke of genius, although not perfectly executed).

I finished Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden last night, after nearly 30 hours. My first two days of playing it I was about ready to quit because I kept getting my ass whooped. But once I took a step back and researched some gameplay tips, I jumped back in, restarted, and it finally clicked. Had a similar experience with the new RE2 last February.
While the combat is basically the same as XCOM's, there's much more emphasis on stealth and guerrilla warfare, as you're limited to 3 squad members at any given time. But you also have much more freedom in the way of exploration and reconnaissance. And like the Fallout games you can travel anywhere on the world map and return to locations at any time. And the Ark is right at the center, which is the game hub where you can resupply and buy upgrades.
I like the overall aesthetics more than Fallout also. I get that in Fallout they were going for the retro-futuristic Atomic Age look for all their technology, but in MYZ some of the weapons, robots, and machinery look outright alien. More..."IDM", if you will.

Ion Fury (formerly Ion Maiden) is out of early access tomorrow, after a year and a half. A brand new game made on the original Duke Nukem 3D (Build) engine. Can't wait.
