  1. Cool, that's good to know! I might have stuck with previous games if I knew they had fast travel. I love time-saving options in games, and since Let's Go streamlines other things, I would be very surprised if Fly or a similar ability was not present.
  2. It's quite possible I mis-remembered - as I said "from what I remember"... and what I probably should have added was "which is not much". That being said, I really did think I remembered it from the past. Maybe it was other people who mentioned the next gym? Or maybe it's all in my head. Anyway, the reason I asked is that I don't want to waste time. I don't think the game has fast travel, and I don't want to end up down the wrong path and have to backtrack. Also, if I didn't make it clear before, I don't have a lot of experience with Pokemon games. The most progress I ever made in this series is the first 3 or 4 gym leaders in a past game (I think Soulsilver or Black Version 2). Normally I play for a few hours and lost interest. So I am by no means experienced with the series. I don't know or care about optimizing my team, and I don't do anything competitive. That won't change with Let's Go, but hopefully I will actually finish the game this time... as a filthy casual.
  3. Cool, this worked for me. As was pointed out, Hitman Season 1 is actually smaller as DLC for Hitman 2. This will hold me over until I finish Hitman 1 and I'm ready to move onto Hitman 2. It works out pretty well to restart the Hitman 1 story, because I only got as far as one run through the story mission in Paris (i.e. the first level) in Hitman 1.
  4. Yeah, I tried playing docked when I first got it, and it works fine. Although you do of course need to use the Joy-con(s) since the Pro Controller is not supported. I think maybe what @Eyjabria was suggesting was that we can't assume that Pokemon 2019 will revert all the changes that Let's Go brought. Otherwise then it's possible that it won't support docked mode either, since the series has always been handheld-only prior to Let's Go. I think it's too early to predict what the 2019 game will have, feature-wise. Maybe it won't have random encounters after all. I have a question after Let's Go for those of you Pokemon vets. From what I remember of past games, when you beat a gym leader, they tell you where the next one to beat is. I beat the first gym leader in Let's Go and he didn't tell me that.
  5. That mask is pretty great - his red cheeks are reproduced in the mask, and I especially like the lightning bolt combined with the heart. He'll shock you, but he'll do it with love.
  6. Wait, is that like a luchador costume? If so, sign me up! I'd say that's fairly likely, given the 3DS game and the upcoming movie. I am partial to that kind of detective hat myself. Again, sign me up! I preordered Let's Go Pikachu myself. Eevee is cute, but as a relative Pokemon newbie, Pikachu is easily the most recognizable Pokemon to me. Also, I like the companion Pokemon riding on my shoulder versus my head.
  7. Is the game set in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania? Anyway, I picked up Pool Panic. I'll let you know what I think of it.
  8. Even worse, I'm one of those weirdos who liked BOTH TLJ and TFA. And even though it's supposedly not possible, somehow I like Star Wars AND Star Trek?!? Clearly I am FakeNews. Now that sounds like what I remember. I guess they would be better in a different format. I don't think I've ever seen a bigger improvement than between AC1 and AC2. And this is coming from someone who thinks Ezio is boring and overrated, and who thinks AC2 was outdone by its sequels multiple times once they moved onto other protagonists. But credit where credit is due - AC2 was a huge step up for the series. I actually managed to get the Platinum in Watch Dogs 1, because I liked the hacking gimmick. I haven't played the sequel yet, but it's hard to imagine it going anywhere but up from the unlikable protagonist in WD1. Thanks for the information. That sounds pretty good to me.
  9. Yeah, I knew Thimbleweed Park wasn't for me the moment I first saw it. What can I say, tastes change over time and eliminating genres is one way for me to manage my backlog and list of games I'm interested in. I think I can agree with that about "too much bother, not enough fun." Steve Purcell was closely involved with the first two Telltale games, but only did artwork on the 3rd one. Maybe it's just as well that I haven't played it. If nothing else, I think the Telltale collaboration was useful for renewing interest in the original media. I remember the comics being re-released and the TV series coming out on DVD as a result, and I bought both. I don't remember the games being toned down in insanity, but it has been a while since I played them. You could be right there. On that note, I think I'm due for a re-read of the comics and a re-watch of the show. I've only played bits of the 3D iterations of Ninja Gaiden, which are what I like to refer to as "balls nasty" difficulty. I'm not sure if the NES originals were super difficult since I've never played them. I'll watch some more gameplay footage and read another review or two. Since I haven't seen a guide yet, I don't know how tedious the Platinum in Starlink is, but I think I would get bored before that point. I'm just finding the gameplay to be very repetitive now. I got enough of those "cores" or whatever they're called (the items that show on the various purchase screens next to the main currency that I think is called Electrum) to upgrade all of the homeship stuff to the maximum (except the last few categories that require purchasing additional characters, and also the "puzzle" category that unlocks extra damage against Legion enemies). Leveling up Fox, my Arwing, and my weapons doesn't seem to make much difference so the upgrade loop is basically over for me. I still love the combat though, and the story is kind of interesting. Don't get me wrong, I still like the game a lot but I'm starting to see more flaws now than when I first got it. If Ubisoft makes a sequel, I hope they improve the formula with things like unique side quests, more "stuff to do" on each planet, etc. Still, it's definitely a good starting point and more enjoyable than Assassin's Creed 1 was, for example. Since the eShop updates tomorrow, I'm assuming today is the last day for the sale. Are the levels pretty short, and good for "pick up and play" gameplay? Have you noticed any difficulty spikes so far? Does the game have "shot timers" for making a shot (and if so, do you feel rushed in making shots)? I noticed the game site mentions "Panic Mode" being timed, so that's "right out" for me, but I'm not sure if that element crops up during the normal levels.
  10. Same. It looks like a lot of fun, and I've played bits of others games in the series. I have been moving away from the point-and-click adventure genre for many years. Tastes change. I'll always fondly remember playing Star Trek Next Generation: A Final Unity, the 3rd and 4th Monkey Island games, The Dig, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango, Sam and Max Hit the Road, Day of the Tentacle, and others I'm sure I'm forgetting. But the genre just isn't for me anymore. I never loved the genre in the first place, but I put up with annoying gameplay because at the time it was the most "cinematic" experience for me. For what it's worth, I still think A Final Unity is the most authentic Star Trek game ever made. But now that I'm older, I don't have patience for point-and-click gameplay anymore. And it's not just the inscrutable puzzle difficulty that turns me off, it's all the backtracking, inventory management, etc. It gives me a headache just thinking about playing another one of those games now. Now that I think about it, I think the last one I really liked was Machinarium, and that was probably due to its short length. I still had to look up the solution to some of its puzzles though. Sidenote: I'm not sure what your issue with the Telltale Sam and Max games is, but I found them funny (the first two, as I said I didn't play the third). That's the only reason I liked the original game - I certainly didn't like the point-and-click gameplay. I've since gone and read the comics compilation of Sam and Max, and watched through the animated TV series. I find them to be funny characters, and I wouldn't mind seeing them in new material - whatever form that might take. I did like Axiom Verge a lot, but that pre-dates the "last few platformer/Metroidvania games I've played recently". I played it when it first came out on PS4 back in March 2015. As for why I liked it, the game felt like a Super Metroid homage, while having enough original elements to feel like more than a cheap clone. Yeah, as I hinted at in my post, I suspected that it would be "the" first, but not the last. On that note, I am sort of hitting a motivational wall in Starlink. How are you finding it after putting lots of hours into it? I maxed out the flame weapon (on the Arwing - it appears that weapon XP is done separately for each ship), and I'm close to maxing out the ice missile weapon. My Arwing is like 2 levels from maximum, and Fox is level 12 I think. I'm sure I'll finish the Starfox side story, and the main story, but the game is getting more repetitive for me now. Have you found anything to keep you interested? I haven't played it since the initial level in Legend Mode, so I can't help unfortunately.
  11. That is my favorite Simpsons cameo of all time, even though it came after the "Golden" period of classic Simpsons. The whole thing is great, but Stan taking a personal hand in the Marvel vs DC rivalry is hilarious. Watching him force The Thing into the Batmobile is comedy gold, as is him putting Marvel comic books in the front of each stack. Anyway, RIP Stan Lee. I always looked forward to his cameos in the MCU movies, and I loved his involvement in the LEGO Marvel games. I'm bummed that I won't see him in those roles anymore, but maybe Marvel could do something cool as a homage going forward. Stan always seemed like a genuinely nice person who went above and beyond for fans. I never met him, but I'm pretty sure that Stan would want you to laugh. His many cameos showed he had a great sense of humor, and why can't we remember the dead for how they made us laugh while they were alive?
  12. Yeah I know. I should have commented earlier. I don't think point-and-click adventure games are for me anymore. I forced myself to replay Grim Fandango when it was remastered back in 2015 (on PS4/Vita, I know the Switch version was just released), and I had a rough time. I loved the story and humor as much as the first time, but I can't stand that gameplay all these years later. I don't know if I'll ever manage to play the 3rd Sam and Max game (which I think I should do in honor of Telltale Games going away), even though I loved the first two back when they came out. I think that genre was lost forever when I made the jump from exclusive PC gamer to exclusive console gamer about 6 years ago. I don't play RTS games anymore either (although Pikmin comes somewhat close). As for The Messenger, I think Shovel Knight was more of a fluke than a typical game for me. The last few platformer/Metroidvania games I've played recently haven't pulled me in (Hollow Knight was the only one of the bunch that succeeded for me), and I'm being more careful about which ones I buy now. Maybe I should watch some gameplay videos of the game. So far I've only seen the original Direct teaser, and read your praise for the game. I also read a review or two but they didn't convince me to buy it. Dreadnaught is an acceptable variant, which I would guess is an American spelling. Interestingly, Firefox considers it wrong in spell check. Even MORE interesting, "nought" is a less common form of the word "naught", so you would logically think Dreadnaught was the more common form of the word but it's not. Anyway, I'll admit that I didn't pay attention to how the game spells it, which would be correct spelling when discussing the game. It's probably with a "o", as you wrote. I'm fine with that too. I didn't take a screenshot of the "positive" part of Levi's analysis, but I remember it being there. And the game has shown that Levi is a reliable member of the team. Which if I'm honest, most Millennials I know do have positive traits. It's easy to laugh at generational differences, but at the end of the day, peoples is peoples. Well, I don't know how long ago my previous Facebook upload of Switch pics/videos was, but when I did it then, I could post the image location here and the pictures would show up. Now it no longer works, and it's probably a Facebook change not a PSNP change. I never got the Twitter option on Switch to work, which is due to the fact that my two personal email addresses on Twitter were both taken by spambots by the time I got a Switch and tried to create an account. I spent several hours trying to get my email addresses working on Twitter and gave up. I'm not creating a new email address just for Twitter, considering that I would only use it for Switch uploads. In fact, the only reason I have a Facebook account was because I wanted to upload videos from my PS4 before they added Youtube integration. I have no interest in social media besides sharing silly video game videos and pictures, and even then it's pretty sparse so I'm not spending much effort on it. Hopefully, one day Nintendo will add Youtube uploads to Switch. Now that there is a Youtube app, it's probably more likely. I'd still need something for picture uploading though.
  13. I find that if I play several rounds of NBA Playgrounds, I slightly improve just out of luck and/or practice. It's the same effect I have bowling in real life - I don't bowl enough to keep my skills, so it's always back to 0 XP every time I go to a bowling alley. Anyway, I normally do a 10-point match, to keep things quick. I think you earn more XP on two 10-point wins than you do on one 20-point win. From what I can tell, wins earn the most XP, and I think performing well earns more XP too. But losing, you earn next to nothing. My "mains" are what I think are my two best unlocked players - James Worthy (who I like because of his distinctive sports goggles), and some Epic player I don't recognize. To be honest, I know next to nothing about basketball - I have "heard of" Lebron James and Steph Curry but I couldn't tell you what teams they're on. I've seen Lebron in enough ads that I recognize him but I don't know what Steph looks like. Basically, the basketball players I know are Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, and Shaq. That's about it. And even there I don't know what team Shaq played on, I mostly know him from movies. Anyway, of those players, James is leveled up all the way, and the Epic Dude I Don't Know is close. My "player level" is at 4 I think, and the game just unlocked Online Mode. I won the first campaign match (I forget what that mode is called) and I think that's only my 2nd or 3rd win out of like 20 matches. I'll keep playing it some. Maybe if I play a match or two every day I'll get better at it. I don't even know how I would hack it to not use the patch though - I have the game digitally (not sure if it had a retail version). Let me know what you think of Pool Panic. It looked interesting to me, but more of a "sale price" interesting. But it's not like I NEED another game - your list reminds me that I still haven't started WoL or Yoku, despite buying WoL at launch and Yoku well over a month ago. Too many games! Still, that's better than not enough games. I spent a decent chunk of time with Starlink this weekend, and I fought my first two Primes, and once I fight this third one, I can take on the Dreadnaught (I'm not sure if it's "the" or "a" Dreadnaught - but right now it's "the" 😜). Also, the game seems to be poking fun of Millennials with the Levi character: Although Levi later redeemed himself: EDIT: Sorry about the links - I can't get Facebook pictures to embed anymore. I wish the Switch would let us use other image hosting sites.
  14. So I have to modify my previous comment about the Dual Shock 4. I tested it on my Surface Pro 3, and it actually connects via Bluetooth out of the box. I actually found my official PC Dual Shock 4 USB stick, but it's not needed. With Bluetooth it was recognized by Steam. So that will be convenient, since I'll be able to keep the Playstation control layout I'm accustomed to from FC and SC.
  15. Hmm, I didn't know that. But the PSP doesn't support WPA2, so it's not safe to use it on WiFi (yes, WPA2 has been hacked also, but it's still safer than WEP and WPA1). The Media GO app is decent, but if you still have a PS3, I'd just use that for downloading and transferring games to the PSP.
