    Pokemon Sun/Moon PLUS ULTRA (Alola Region Games)

    Based on the Official site, yes. I lists steps to download one, then says "Repeat steps 2-8 to receive the other Pikachu.

    Splatoon 2 (Summer 2017)

    Hmm, so Ive just learned that there is a Recon mode and a Spectator mode. The costumes and decorations look great!

    What game are you currently playing?

    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.

    Whose side were you on as a kid? (Retrogaming)

    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!)
  5. 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.

    Splatoon 2 (Summer 2017)

    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!

    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.

    Splatoon 2 (Summer 2017)

    I had the worst luck I've had so far with the internet yesterday. I got kicked out of the lobby four times and once out of a game in the last 10 seconds, which it appeared the other team had already been evicted from - my teammates and I had painted blue all the way to the other base, with almost no hint of an opposing color, let alone players. And what have they done to the Turtles? Leo looks like a treefrog!

    Got the Platinum for No Man's Sky, and am about halfway through Aven Colony's trophies while 2/3 of the way through the (nine) missions. Got the Labo Variety kit yesterday and teased the dogs a bit with the RC 'cars' - and drove one around in the pantry a bit to try out the IR camera. Then I built the house and have been having fun playing with the basic keys (you start with three but there's apparently one other set based on an off-handed reference and the fact that there are pieces left to punch out of the 'house-D' page) and the critter. The instructions are done a bit tongue-in-cheek, very clear, and you can stop/start, rewind, and speed up the progress, as well as rotate the pieces on the screen if you can't see well. There's a section on each completed item to explain what it does and how it works, and suggest some other things to try, and I haven't gotten to half of the stuff yet, even for the two pieces I've built. I'll probably do the fishing game next; there's an aquarium associated with it evidently.

    Finished getting the Platinum trophy on Ni No Kuni (I despise gladiator tournaments, particularly when that's a completely added on bit of the game!) on the PS3. Need to destroy 5 more ships to get the platinum on PS4 for No Man's Sky, and then I can start Aven Colony. I've already got the extra trophies for NMS (added with an update), just need the last one for destroying ships - which I will probably get by blowing up a few more crashed ships, since getting attacked by and fighting 6 pirates who can make maneuvers that I can't is a good way to get killed. Thankfully when I can locate a mission to fight pirates, it's a single ship; but like all missions, they tend not to turn up when I want them. On the 3DS, I'm mostly Miitopia-ing, and on the Switch I'm alternating between ARMS party crashes and Splatoon 2.

    Splatoon 2 (Summer 2017)

    Wow, 80 missions? That's a LOT more than I was expecting. The trailer looked fabulous.

    Super Mario Odyssey (October 27, 2017)

    Ah, that explains why I saw a video where a secret path that I knew went to one kingdom seemed to go to the wrong place. Interesting.

    I've been doing some eShop games on the Switch between Arms and Pokken online matches (Arms is fun even though I'm lousy, it feels like I'm loosing because I am lousy, but have a chance of getting better; Pokken's not so fun because I can't even get started, not even a lucky hit in and it feels like both the computer opponent and actual online opponents are pulling moves/ blocks/ dodges that I don't have access to - like the way I can NEVER land a Boost attack, and the opponent's I can never avoid, and once they land an attack they have me, but if I do get a hit it's only one and then they demolish me with an uninterruptable string of attacks.) Anyway, I've played Koi, and am working on The Bridge and Picross S. And Stardew Valley. I'm back to Ni No Kuni on the PS3 and not playing PS4 right now since my husband's taken it over with his new Sniper Elite game (which I gave him for Christmas). The 3DSs are finishing the Dex in Pokemon Sun and Setting out in Ultra Sun.

    Arms! (Nintendo Switch, June 16, 2017)

    Having a lot of fun with the Party Crash this weekend. I got on last night just in time for a Bonus Period of 'one-hit wonders', and won 5 of the 6 matches during that period by landing the first (and only) blow. Generally, I don't win at all, but the playing is fun (I think I won one other match in the whole thing; nothing went more than a single round). Got up to level 10 last night and will be back later today to try for at least 15. Unfortunately my husband is sick, so he's got the TV. Playing ARMS with the Switch perched on a shelf at eye level is really not the best method.

    What game are you currently playing?

    Layton's Detective Agency on the 3DS, but I need to choose a game to finish to alternate with it. (Just 100%ed Hey Pikmin.) I've got Ultra Sun and Moon, but not starting them yet. Will do the standard play one far enough to transfer the starter out and rest to get three new starters. PS4, just simultaneously earned trophies for reaching the Center of the Galaxy in Permadeath (which I was playing) and Survival (apparently Permadeath is Survival with just one modification, so it counted for both). I shall now take a break before I return to normal mode to finish the platinum; I have all the DLC trophies but still lack two golds from the base set. I may play the Last Guardian first, or not. Switch is overloaded. I'm done with the story of Odyssey, but still have plenty of moons to collect. I've also got Skyrim, Stardew Valley, and Sonic Forces and Mania, etc. I just snagged a pair of Splatoon joycons for only $10 over the price of a US-available set; a lot better than the prices that were up earlier for European imports. So I now have four different colored sections and a replacement for my release-day blue con, which doesn't always work properly. (Not bad enough to return the unit, but sometimes if my leg or a dog gets between the control and the console, it won't read. But sometimes it will. So I'll be interested to see if the green one works more reliably.) And I'll be picking up the DLC for Snipperclips, now that I have enough cons for a 4-player match with my brother and nieces.
