I feel like for $60, Links Awakening should have voice acting for all the dialogue. As-is, I'd probably pay $30 at most.

I don't get why the US is getting the art book but not the steelbook.

Well, that makes it much easier for me to just use a Voucher on that game.

I did pre-order that sweet Amibo though -- my first one purchased in over a year.

I'm a sucker and still preordered the US special edition with artbook. And the Link amiibo. And the other amiibos they just put on preorder.

Oh well, one less game to use a voucher on.

Damn that sucks. I totally would have been a sucker with those exclusives. Really disappointed we didn't get any info on Metroid Prime 4. How long has it been now with zero information?

What information do you want at this point? They just started over on it.

I thought at minimum they would mention Metroid Prime Trilogy on Switch.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

...especially because that trilogy has supposedly been complete for a long while. I wonder if we'll see it early next year (similar to the flood of Wii U ports we saw early this year), or if they're holding it back until Prime 4 is a little closer to feed on that pent-up interest while also promoting the sequel.

Knowing Nintendo, they're probably weighing the possibility of releasing each remaster separately for $60 each.

This kind of looks ugly and unwieldy and yet I really want it, if only for the sticks and dpad.

I learned long ago that non-first-party controllers are a waste of money.

eh, I have the hori dpad fake joycon and it works fine for what it's supposed to do.

Even MadCatz before they died tiptoed into legitimacy with their Street Fighter sticks.

Hori is generally an exception to that rule. BUT I logged in to post that they've disappointed a bit of late.

I must have missed that. Dang, didn't know they had to start over. Wow that sucks. So they had to scrap like at least a years worth of work?

That European exclusive Steelbook for Link's Awakening is awesome. Almost might consider importing that.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

The new Zelda game looked cool and all, but then I saw that it was a rhythm game. Ugh.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

The original is on sale for $4 right now. This sorta-sequel is $25. Try the first one now and if you enjoy it enough, get Hyrule some time in the future. Itís pricey.

10+ years after I first bought it, my (Round 1) MadCatz TE Arcade Stick is still alive and kicking.

It's not a "Zelda Game", it's a cross-over game with Zelda and Link guest starring in it.

And we bought it yesterday.

You know there's three different Zelda games right? The one you posted is indeed a rhythm game that just came out based on the necromancer title.

There's also a remake of the Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening the gameboy game that's coming out in September.

The third announced title is a Breath of the Wild sequel.

I'm only taking about something that was just released - none of the games you mentioned have been released yet, so I don't understand what you're trying to say.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

I would love to get The Legend of Zelda, Link's Awaking but I have no idea when I would get to play it. My daughter plays the Switch all the time now that her summer vacation from school has started.
