I played Brawlout at PAX South a year or two ago and everyone said the same thing back then.

Its a very beautiful game. Well done.

Nintendo sure didn't plan their eShop to handle Christmas Day.

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

My (ahem) Daughter got a Nintendo Switch this morning. Very nice system. I'm glad I downloaded Rocket League last night considering all that's going on with the e-shop.

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

Does anyone have Rocket League for the Switch? If so, how can you just play a regular offline game? Also, I thought RL for the Switch came with the Mario and Luigi cars? Is this something that's extra you have to pay for? Thanks for any help you can pass my way.

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

Apparently Nintendo released a version of Super Mario Bros. on the eShop recently as part of the Arcade Archives collection. Its called Vs. Super Mario Bros.. Not exactly sure what the differences are but Ive read some aspects are harder.

The VS series were the arcade versions of NES games. VS SMB is SLIGHTLY different than the NES original. Yes it is harder in the way Lost Levels is harder.

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

Yeah, I downloaded it. Its largely the same game with some changes to things like items in the question blocks and the difficulty does feel a tad ramped up.

I won Golf Story during a Game Awards contest and started playing it yesterday. My friend at work has been recommending it for awhile, and it really is entertaining.

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

It's a little bit surprising and disappointing that the Switch doesn't have Bluetooth audio feature. The Playstation Vita had it and that came out in 2012. And back then Bluetooth headsets were expensive and iPhones still had headphone jacks.

It's not the perfect scenario, but you can use the wireless Sony PS4 one since it uses USB.

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

My son was ecstatic to get the Switch on Christmas Day. It took a while for me to get it connected to my wifi, but once I did he was up and running. Now, I just need to buy a controller so I can play too, lol. A friend had told me there were 2 sets of joy cons in the bundle I bought, but he was mistaken. I'm just gonna grab a wired controller because they are a WHOLE lot cheaper than buying another set of joy cons.

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

You can use the left and right pieces of the joy con as 2 different controllers.

Anyone know of a website I can use to find out about my question? I paid 16 bucks for it and haven't been able to play it. Thanks.

I hate to be "that guy" but have you tried google?

I did. Mario, Luigi, and Samus are free unlockables. You can play offline against the AI.

But you already bought it, so maybe I'm misunderstanding your question? I bought it during the sale but haven't played it enough to answer directly, but I think the mario/luigi cars are specific to what team you're on when you play online.

You don't want a wired controller. Just get by with the left and right joy con for now.
I waited and watched and grabbed a "Like New" set of joy cons from Amazon Warehouse for $62.99. I'm now waiting for them to arrive. They go in and out of stock.

Rakuten (formerly Buy.com) has various colors of the Joy Cons on sale for $63.20, as well as the Pro Controllers for $55.20.

Can you post any links? They are having a 20% off sale according to their home page, but I can't figure out how to search for anything without turning up marketplace stores.

I don't know how different the interface is on the Switch, but on the PS4 and Xbox One, select "Play", then "Play Local".

AFAIK, the Mario, Luigi, and Samus cars are random drops. You don't get 'em out of the box.

I had Mario and Luigi right away but I didn't see Samus.
