SF Redd posted a topic in The ArcadeAs most people reading this probably already know, Nintendo announced their new console recently: the Nintendo Switch. If you haven't already, I recommend that you go and watch the announcement trailer. Watched it yet? Great. I will say that when we were getting rumours about the NX and all the various aspects of it, I was a bit sceptical, but now that I've seen it in action, I'm hopeful. If I can play the Skyrim Special edition on the go as shown in the trailer, it's an instant sell for me. Even more so if it supports mods(side note, how likely do you think that will be?). One think I am wondering though is how using one half of the controller will work in multiplayer will work, or if it even will for some games. So what are your thoughts? This could make for a good discussion, I think.
I was at BestBuy today and out of the corner of my eye while walking past the 3DS demo station, I saw that SF64 3D was playable, needless to say I jumped on it immediately. They allow you to play two levels, Corneria and Fichina, yes, they fixed the translation error and called the planet Fichina instead of Fortuna. It's safe to say that this is the game we all know and love reborn. The graphics look beautiful and and the controls are easy to use. The gyroscope controls actually weren't that bad, though you'd have to turn the 3D off to play comfortably. Sadly a lot of the voice acting wasn't very good, the only two characters I actually thought were fine were Fox and Falco. But there are still all the other levels too. There are two control types and basically it just swaps out the boost and brake buttons with the laser and bomb buttons, pretty simple. And they give you the option to have the flight controls inverted or not. (THANK GOD, I can't stand playing flying games where the controls aren't inverted, it just feels so awkward without it.) I also spotted this when I finished the demo, it mentioned that the full retail version would have a Nintendo 64 mode in which "it will recreate the challenge of the original Star Fox 64." I think that means the the original Star Fox 64 will be included in this, which is fine with me! I have no qualms about my preorder for this game now, and you guys shouldn't either. I will definitely be picking this up on day one.
