I've got video game madness again I don't want to stop thinking about video games

I’ve got dollhouse madness

I ordered a second console so I can play again. And (theoretically) my kid and I will get to use local two-player on our own screens. Really looking forward to it.

My nephew was over this weekend and introduced me to Splatoon. Rules!

make sure you get the new revision that just came out with the much longer battery life, if you can

ciderpress, Sunday, 25 August 2019 12:01 (five months ago) link

Oh I did, memorized the different model numbers to be sure

hmm astral chain getting really positive reviews

ciderpress, Monday, 26 August 2019 13:24 (five months ago) link

Have any reviewers called it "off the chain?" I need to know so I can either shame or congratulate them, I'm conflicted

OK, fwiw just got a tracking number that my Joy-con is on its way back, so that's a pretty fast turnaround.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 26 August 2019 18:07 (five months ago) link

every reviewer has called it that, by sheer coincidence

ciderpress, Monday, 26 August 2019 18:07 (five months ago) link

xp to Josh,
I imagine that there must be a good rpg (with more story than zelda) that your daughters would eat up

or adventure game. My little sister eventually got into games like Monkey Island, Paper Mario, and Chrono Trigger

ilm jive mind (FlopsyDuck), Monday, 26 August 2019 18:13 (five months ago) link

switch should have a paper mario game, hopefully that's in the pipe

I think they're just not that interested, tbh. Sometimes these things skip generations, and they have plenty of other distractions. I just hope my younger one (not that young anymore) is still interested in Animal Crossing by the time it finally releases for the Switch.

Curiously (or not) they do seem to enjoy watching me play games. Of course, I (and obviously countless others) enjoy watching others play games online, so that's not unusual. Another random data point is that when I was playing Mario Kart with my nephew this weekend, he was really into watching the instant replays at the end, whereas I never gave a poop about that.

yeah i'm gonna pick it up next week if i finish judgment this weekend

I haven't played Super Mario Odyssey yet but the Dr. Mario app loads a close-up picture of the new Mario and his eyes are kinda creepy. They didn’t need the hyper-realistic lines in the iris. A blue gradient is good enough.

Transferring my user data to the new Switch: painless

Re-establishing my kid’s ability to play her favorite games on the old Switch now that mine is the “primary:” hard brexit

The lack of qualified negotiators is going to lead to food and medicine shortages at my house. Some industries are already looking for alternative locations

El Tomboto, Thursday, 29 August 2019 01:21 (five months ago) link

Really mistook which Switch to ditch in this sitch

El Tomboto, Thursday, 29 August 2019 01:25 (five months ago) link

yeah that stuff is very arcane

ciderpress, Thursday, 29 August 2019 01:29 (five months ago) link

Completely corrupted her Minecraft save. Had to blow it all away to get it working again; if she had anything important on local that wasn’t in the Microsoft cloud, I may not survive tomorrow

I feel like I’ve been working on an old car for the past two hours

El Tomboto, Thursday, 29 August 2019 02:42 (five months ago) link

you may have hit the point where your best move is to buy your child’s love back by rebuying all the games.

president of deluded fruitcakes anonymous (silby), Thursday, 29 August 2019 02:45 (five months ago) link

Oh that happened too. Spending another hundo on things I thought we already owned was the easy part

El Tomboto, Thursday, 29 August 2019 03:00 (five months ago) link

just noticed that Bulletstorm has appeared on the eshop, wasn't there someone around here that was crazy about that game?
got Astral Chain today, just need to finish up Gris first

( X '____' )/ (zappi), Friday, 30 August 2019 23:16 (five months ago) link

anyone else playing AC ? I still need to finish up FE and RE4 before I can justify it

самокритика me, daddy (||||||||), Tuesday, 3 September 2019 08:49 (five months ago) link

Going to have to insist on Astral Chain being typed out in full I'm afraid, AC already means both animal crossing and assassin's creed, which trips me up on a surprisingly regular basis as it is.

JimD, Tuesday, 3 September 2019 08:59 (five months ago) link

самокритика me, daddy (||||||||), Tuesday, 3 September 2019 14:22 (five months ago) link

I'd be happy for more Mario Maker 2 content

ilm jive mind (FlopsyDuck), Tuesday, 3 September 2019 14:50 (five months ago) link

Deus Ex whatever? What are the big more or less imminent Nintendo games already announced? Luigi's Mansion, Link's Awakening Redux and Animal Crossing?

the announcement says "focusing on 2019 games" but they always say something like that. I'd say there's an acceptable chance they're going to announce a game for December.

president of deluded fruitcakes anonymous (silby), Tuesday, 3 September 2019 15:56 (five months ago) link

which would probably be a port of some kind

president of deluded fruitcakes anonymous (silby), Tuesday, 3 September 2019 15:56 (five months ago) link

they always use that language and then show a few further out games anyway

ciderpress, Tuesday, 3 September 2019 16:25 (five months ago) link

it's like a magic spell against online pisskids
