  1. Multiple Toads got turned into paintings in Dark Moon, so not only Mario in the past.
  2. I've fallen into Elder Scrolls Online, on the PS4, with a side of Skyrim VR and Fallout 4 (still working on platinum for those, but NOT for ESO). Elsweyr and too long with no main series game finally got to me. On Switch I've got Dragon Quest Builders 2 and Link's Awakening, which I had halfway played on the 3DS. PSA - if you have an expired bonus code for ESO it may still work. I just got a mount and costume with a code that supposedly expired two years ago.
  3. I have one TV and a husband who plays a lot of (and only) PS4 games. So as the one willing to play PC, Switch, and/or 3DS games, I have to cede the TV most weekends. Now, when the Wii U gamepad got a better battery, I bought one and replace the old battery, which was wearing out at that point anyway. I do not like that I can't do that with the Switch. But I need those controllers. Go Gators! (with a blue one ) and Arrrr! Pirates with purple and gold! (I do not need more controllers, I do NOT need more controllers . . . .)
  4. Got a PSVR to prepare for NMS Beyond in a month or so. Now I'm a bit swamped with Moss (which I'd just finished when they expanded it), Astro Bot, Skyrim VR and Fallout 4 (not VR) which I'd only just finally gotten a chance to start. Since I'm having to do Skyrim in small segments to keep my stomach happy, it's not as bad as it could be. (I did not know you could get VR-sick after the fact - as in several hours after playing. It was NOT fun.)
  5. I've always wished the Pokedex would include method/level of evolution, even if you had to do it once to get it entered. The incenses should never have made it out of that particular generation; subsequent Generations should simply have had Munchlax hatch automatically from Snorlax eggs, etc. No explanation would even have been needed. Not sure why trade evolutions would be behind a paywall; can you not trade directly between Sword and Shield?
  6. Currently trying to platinum Ni No Kuni 2 on the PS4 and playing Hyrule Warriors on the Switch. Getting ready to restart Breath of the Wild when the VR comes out at the end of the month. (I 'd about decided to restart anyway as my game got bogged down somewhere and I don't even remember what I was doing int it anymore. I do remember the only really bad shrine I found I couldn't actually complete, so I'm not losing anything to restart.)
  7. Nintendo doesn't lower prices . . . unless a game gets declared a 'Nintendo Select'. I'm still rather annoyed that after my dogs destroyed my LEGO City Undercover, I rebought it at full price as a download on the Wii U, because all (out-of-print) disk-based versions I could find were way marked up - and three weeks later it was released with a red case for $20. Yoshi might have a chance at that, but it'll be quite a while. I just took my Yoshi out of the mailbox, so off to play!
  8. I've temporarily tabled Let's Go Evee! for Katamari Damacy Rerolled on the Switch. I only ever played the PS3 Katamari, so most of these levels are new. Having the sticks at different levels on the Joycons takes a bit of getting used to, though. Still No Man's Skying on PS4, interspersed with Ni No Kuni 2. My NEXT save (started for the NEXT update in August) in NMS has now passed 100 hours, while my original save is well over 200 now, and another 150 on Permadeath.
  9. Based on the Official site, yes. I lists steps to download one, then says "Repeat steps 2-8 to receive the other Pikachu.
  10. Hmm, so Ive just learned that there is a Recon mode and a Spectator mode. The costumes and decorations look great!
  11. Have you tried the second (Switch) one yet? They've replaced the Micross (where famous paintings are broken down into a series of Picross puzzles) with a 'clip art' series where certain parts of a larger picture are earned by doing the regular puzzles, each part being random sizes and when you finish the last one it gives you the rest of the picture. I just introduced my mom to these on my last visit (she has a 3DS), and I expect I'll be buying her a new game each time I visit - the change from 'I'm not sure I understand this,' to 'Just one more then I'll head up to bed,' was exceedingly fast. She's been repeating the Brain Age sudokus on the DSi forever, so I thought it was time to introduce her to something new. On topic, I'm working Captain Toad on the 3DS and No Man's Sky on the PS4. Community events have arrived if a bit unevenly, and I had a player actually wander onto my planet this week. Such a strange thing to have a spacesuited figure run up, wave 'hi' and go running off into the distance.
  12. Yay, you got ColecoVision on there! That was the only generation, to my mind, where the graphics truly mattered. People who came in and saw us playing Donkey Kong would say, 'Oh, Donkey Kong!'. People who saw our friends playing Donkey Kong on their Ataris looked puzzled and finally asked, 'What's that brown blob at the top of the screen?" (Yes I exaggerate, but not as much as you might think, who call Nintendo's recent graphics "unplayable" vs the equivalent Sony or MS versions.) My brother, a few years younger, bought an NES with his own money after they came out and that was the only game system we knew of at that time. I bought a Genesis after college (because of Sonic the Hedgehog), but fell out again during vet school and didn't return until late Gamecube -which I got because it had 'all' the Sonic games on it, plus I could now go back to Mario and Zelda. For the last two generations I run Nintendo and Sony, and all four consoles still get fairly regular use. (I wasn't DONE with my PS3 and Wii U games!)
  13. As I understand it, it isn't just Fortnite - Sony doesn't do cross play of any sort with other consoles (mostly meaning Xbox). Some games have PC/PS4 crossplay (or so I've heard on the NMS boards; I don't do much online gaming) but Sony won't cross with Xbox. So, MS and Nintendo are using this to their advantage.
  14. I'm going to end up with as many Splatoon amiibos as Legend of Zelda ones at this rate. But yay, for an early drop to the DLC!
  15. Having finished three playthroughs of Last Guardian and still not gotten the Intensive Care trophy (have to remove all spears from Trico immediately after battle, but in every case at least once when I load up a spear is suddenly present where it hadn't been, no matter that the last battle was 20 minutes before I left off and I'd searched all over the beast for any damage) I decided to table that until my husband finishes his new game, so I can maybe not have to reload the game every single night. So I went back to Tokyo Jungle(PS3) and decided to go for broke and storm the hidden lab to try to get the last two Archives and unlock the final part of the story. My last several attempts ended prematurely thanks to the labs being full of sabertooths, mammoths, cheetahs, and dinosaurs. So I battle my way as usually to the sewer entrance and through the sewers. Here's the lab! Get ready to die . . . . big empty room. Well on through the next door . . . another big empty room. I got to the penultimate archive without seeing a single foe. Hm. Well, let's go on and try for the last one, which will probably be better guarded. On through uninhabited corridors until I found a crocodile! Okay, the monsters are starting here, get ready for battle! Next room, two mammoths who completely ignore me. Next room, is the archive, unlocking chapter 14. I take the back exit of the lab and die; not certain if I fell prey to old age, hunger, or the ostrich that I had been trying to kill to relieve the hunger. So now I can finally get the trophy for completing the story, as soon as I play through the last chapter. On the Switch, I'm bouncing back and forth between Hyrule Warriors and Splatoon's single player (need to finish that before the expansion comes out) but Splatoon doesn't play so well on the go, and at home I have so many other things going on. Trying to finish up Miitopia on the 3DS and free my brother from being the Darker Lord.
