  1. Dragon Quest Builders 1 & 2 (Switch)

    I'd say Builders 2 is the better game, there's a lot of QoL improvements and I prefer not having to build walls around the town all the time as I felt like that's all you do in the first one. I'll post more impressions later.
  2. I don't think Nintendo ever commented on it, but it could have been to deter making third party docks. Or they just screwed up, I think the final USB-C spec was still fairly newish around that time. I'm probably wrong about that. Quick Google showed that it's using a different charger on the dock that can cause issues.
  3. Ah, OK. As long as your using a reputable brand it should be fine. The original Switch evaluated to cost $257 to manufacture though according to a strip down by a Japanese company. Source: https://tech.nikkeibp.co.jp/dm/atcl/column/15/363874/032700069/?rt=nocnt (it's pay wall'd though). Component prices may have dropped since then, but if the new chip is custom then it'll keep the cost high.
  4. Nintendo didn't follow the USB-C spec correctly, so it is potentially dangorous to use third party cables. Third party docks where bricking consoles. If it affects charging I'm not sure, but I think some power banks don't work? If you 2 want to bicker then take it to PMs please, I think it's time to stop the current discussion here if you're going to start getting personal.
  5. Yeah, been reading that the new CPU has a higher maximum clock rate, but it's hard to tell if Nintendo will make use of it at this point, they didn't even mention it themselves, but it would be nice for games like BoTW2, and even the first one if it helps the framerate to stay smooth. Makes it hard to decide if it's worth the upgrade.
  6. They managed that just from improving the CPU, or is the battery actually larger? Is this also to patch the security flaws with the original hardware?
  7. Splatoon 2

    I'm up for playing. It starts tomorrow, right?

    Saw this interesting article on how an interview or tweet gets mistranslated and it spreads like wildfire without anyone actually checking the original source themselves. https://legendsoflocalization.com/viral-and-memorable-mistranslations-of-japanese-game-news/

  10. General Retro Discussion

    Found a decent condition copy of Phantasy Star II! Also picked up Japanese versions o DQI&II, DQIII, Dragon Quest Monsters 2: Tara's Journey and Pokemon Green. Should make some good Japanese practice. Someday. They also had a Japanese copy of PSO Ep 1 & 2 Plus but it was £45, if it was cheaper I would have picked it up.
  11. Honestly, the school setting kinda killed my hype somewhat but I'm still looking forward to a new "home console" Fire Emblem. I'm a little surprised about the positive previews.
  12. Tetris 99 -- Available Today

    It's a great theme, the music fits really well as well.
  13. https://www.wsj.com/amp/articles/nintendo-to-launch-two-new-switch-models-11553494773 The article is pay wall'd.
  14. That's a lot more clearer explaination.
  15. Glad that wasn't just me then. Sounds far too convoluted for no reason. Dynamaxing doesn't sound that great if it replaces your moves with generic ones, gonna make the gym battles pretty boring.
