You don't need to win to get the outfit or even play online. When the tutorial is done at the menu it gives you the option to play online or practice vs the cpu. If you play a practice match vs the cpu you get it also.

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

The lag in this game was bad. It easily can swing a match. If this is how Nintendo's online service is going to be, I won't be buying any game that is mostly online. I was going to definitely buy Mario Tennis, but after the demo, I'm not so sure anymore.

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

Because of the game itself or the network? I'm pretty sure that's one of the purposes of this stress test.

Is the Mario Tennis thing already over?

A little of both. I'm going to wait for reviews about how bad the lag is, because this is a game I would like to play online, not just against the CPU.

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

I had a few matches with lag but the vast majority played great. I was on the fence but the demo blew me away and can't wait to play it at the end of the month

Shaq Fu is free if you bought NBA Playgrounds early. Still haven't tried it out though.

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

After Nintendo's E3 Presentation, what is everyone excited for?

Honestly, I'm really looking forward to Daemon X Machina!

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

Awwww, where was Yoshi?

It's weird to think that the Wii U had a trickle of software but I bought a ton of stuff. The Switch has a flood of software, and for whatever reason, I'm not buying anything. I haven't picked up anything since Super Mario Odyssey, and while I may get the urge to grab Kirby (especially if it's on sale), not much else on the slate for 2018 is really grabbing me. I do have Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on my Christmas list, though.

I thought for sure we would get an Animal Crossing game.

Fire Emblem looked great. Can't wait for that one. Downloading Fortnite now. Guess I do need it on a third platform after all. Smash can suck it, don't care.

Day one for sure! I'm also sad they failed to mention Dead Cells in their indie showcase. It's getting a retail release in August.

Amazing but true : Nintendo eshop is having an E3 Sale with digital copies of first-party games like Splatoon 2 and Zelda Breath of the Wild.

The pedigree involved for Daemon X Machina is so awesome:

Directors: Ken Awata (Blue Dragon) & Ken Karube (Panzer Dragoon Orta)

Producer: Kenichiro Tsukuda (Armored Core 2 & 3)

30-minutes of Gameplay were shown off at E3:

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

Mario Tennis Aces reviews are out. 78 so far on Metacritic. Seems like it's fun for multiplayer but nothing too special or amazing.

I might back that. I have all the classic Arcade Archives releases by Nintendo but they arenít exactly the easiest to play vertically and as highlighted in the video thereís a lot of wasted screen space playing horizontally.

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

Kind of crazy to see Nintendo advertising Cross Play with Xbox straight up, even if it is with a Microsoft owned game
