Switch vs. Switch OLED?

Upvotes

Hello all! My gf and I have been wanting to buy a Switch for a while but not able to afford it and wanted to go half-ers on it. With Christmas coming up I wanted to surprise her and buy her the Switch since I've been saving money to do so. My question is... which one should I go with and what are the differences?

Should I get her the Switch? Or Switch OLED?

On This Day On This Day in Nintendo History: Nakayama Miho no Tokimeki High School; Heisei Shin Onigashima: Kōhen; Heisei Shin Onigashima: Zenpen; Picross NP Vol. 5; 64DD and more

1 Upvotes

On this day (December 1) in Nintendo history...

  • Nakayama Miho no Tokimeki High School was released in 1987 for the Family Computer Disk System in Japan. In this dating sim game, developed by Square, you have transferred to Tokimeki High School. You befriend a strange boy in class called Sadakichi who confesses he is a fan of teen idol Miho Nakayama and he gives you a phone number to her fan hotline. After class, you run into a girl in the corridor who drops a small mascot toy. When she comes back for it, you realise she bears a striking resemblance to Miho Nakayama herself.

  • Heisei Shin Onigashima: Kōhen was released in 1997 for the Super Famicom in Japan. In this adventure game, developed by Nintendo with Pax Softnica, you play a series of side-stories to the Famicom adventure game Famicom Mukashibanashi: Shin Onigashima, telling the previously untold stories of Ringo the dog, Matsunosuke the monkey and Ohana the pheasant, as well as revealing the backstories of Donbe and Hikari when the Avatar of Darkness was awakened.

  • Heisei Shin Onigashima: Zenpen was released in 1997 for the Super Famicom in Japan. In this adventure game, developed by Nintendo with Pax Softnica, you have to make your way through the game by moving to different screens, talking to the various characters and taking part in timed or action scenes in order to progress.

  • The 64DD was released in 1999 in Japan. A magnetic disk drive peripheral for the Nintendo 64 developed by Nintendo with Alps Electric. It was originally announced in 1995, prior to the Nintendo 64's 1996 launch. The "64" references both the Nintendo 64 console and the 64 MB storage capacity of the disks, and "DD" is short for "disk drive" or "dynamic drive". New genres of games were developed due to the advent of 64DD's rewritable mass storage, real-time clock (RTC), and Internet appliance functionality. However, the system's commercial failure required many 64DD games to be released on traditional cartridges alone, ported to other consoles, or cancelled. Some of these standalone Nintendo 64 cartridge releases include the equivalent of the 64DD's RTC chip directly on board the cartridge, as with Japan's Animal Forest. The 4MB RAM Expansion Pak became a sometimes mandatory staple of Nintendo 64 game development, being packaged along with a few cartridge games. All subsequent Nintendo consoles would directly include RTC functionality.

  • Picross NP Vol. 5 was released in 1999 for the Super Famicom in Japan. In this puzzle game, developed by Jupiter, a Character Mode features 12 puzzles based on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Each of the picture crossword puzzles is a grid with numbers along each row and column, representing a solid line that must be filled in. More than one number means there is at least one space between the lines.

  • Tottoko Hamtaro Nazo Nazo Q Kumonoue no Jou was released in 2005 for the Nintendo DS in Japan. In this quiz game, developed by AlphaDream, on the day Princess Hantena of the Hams is due to become queen, a mysterious group of Dark Hams descends from the clouds in a flying castle.The Riddle Q Team kidnap the princess and fly away. The Ham-Hams give chase in their balloon. You have to answer riddles on the touch screen by uncovering the answer on a word grid.

  • A second wave of The Legend of Zelda amiibo Figures was released in 2016 in Japan and included Link - The Legend of Zelda; Link - Ocarina of Time; Toon Link - The Wind Waker and Toon Zelda - The Wind Waker.

"Wahoo" in the trailer: Pratt or Martinet?

Upvotes

At the end of the new trailer we get a nice Wahoo from Mario. We know Martinet is in the movie. Im wondering if that may be him, or if that was actually Pratt doing a good wahoo. What do you think? The more I hear it, the more I think it might be Martinet's voice.

Potentially stupid question.

Upvotes

If Nintendo were to bring back an updated version of the 3DS in 10+ years with better resolution, more power, and was backwards compatible, would you buy it?

If they did, are there any specific features you would you like to see on an updated 3DS?

Is this a switch pro controller design flaw? Joystick experiences tactile bump when pushed all the way up.

0 Upvotes

I just got a switch pro controller and I've been loving it. Except for the weird sensation where the left joystick experiences a slight bump or pop when I push it all the way forward/up. It doesn't affect the gameplay but messes with my OCD. Has anyone else experienced this?

If Mario Movie is Successful what Other Animated Theatrical Movies based on Nintendo Movies you wanna See?

0 Upvotes

That's basically the Question if Mario is Successful what Spin-off or Other Nintendo Franchises you wanna see Illumination tackle? Personally I wanna see them do Luigi Mansion film and probably Animal Crossing(imagine the voice cast on that one) maybe Kirby at some point? Who would voice Kirby or would it be Samurai Jack thing?

On a related note Illumination already said Mario is little different from there usual work and first 2 trailers kinda show that I wonder if Mario will make Illumination evolve a little because I up until now they been DreamWorks if they did bare minimum up until now with Mario well,... possibly but that's just me

So what Nintendo Franchises you want Illumination to tackle?

Could the 64DD have succeeded had it been released in America first? Consider: the N64 was actually doing well there!

0 Upvotes

They only released it in Japan and the Nintendo 64 did absolutely horrible in Japan in the first place because it didn't have games that appealed to Japanese gamers.

Meanwhile the N64 had a great launch in North America and was a cultural icon. #1 was that the 64DD failed to come out in time. The delays were bad news for the project. By the time it was rolling out Nintendo had developed cartridges that had similar amounts of space making the product redundant. Carts in 2000 hit 64MB with RE2 and CBF.

But what if they were able to roll out the product earlier? If you read about the online subscription service they had, It looks more fully featured than the switch's online subscription LOL. The Mario Artist games always looked so intriguing. I loved Mario paint and I always was so hyped for these games when I saw them in a magazine. It's a bummer I never got to play them!

I also ponder this: what if Nintendo released the N64 with a DD drive built-in for its media instead of a cartridge slot? It would support 64MB games right off the bat vs. 4-8 got the N64 launched with. Maybe the floppy disks would have increased storage as time went on just like the gamepaks did. Developers also might not have left Nintendo because the floppy discs were much cheaper to produce than carts.

A negative is that while they are faster than CDs by a significant margin, they aren't instantaneous like cartridges. One of the biggest reasons Nintendo decided to stick with cartridges was because one of the biggest bottlenecks in all video game platforms in those days was that there wasn't fast enough or enough quantity of RAM. The Nintendo 64 carts were so fast that they could be used as extra ram themselves. This is something I remember seeing Rare and Factor 5 raving about.

Thoughts?

So About The Trailer...

0 Upvotes

The Trailers for The Mario Movie next year has been released and you the celebrities playing these iconic characters. SO FUCKING WHAT?! They do not sound like the Mario characters at all! They just sound their plain run of the mill selves! This movie would have been alot more respected if they cast the regular voice actors from the video game not those fuckin imposters that are better off not involved in this! Plus I want Hollywood, Illumination and Chris Meledrandi to fuck off and never work with Nintendo again! And as for you toxic fanboys who keep saying they love Chris Pratt as Mario, Jack Black as Bowser etc, you heartless pricks are betraying Charles Martinet and all the other voice actors who spent MANY years bringing these beloved video game icons to life and you guys are NOT real Mario fans if you betray the man who brought you the voice of the two brothers who are beloved video game icons.

Fuck you guys!

On This Day On This Day in Nintendo History: Excitebike; Kaettekita Mario Bros.; Mr. Driller Drill Spirits; Final Fantasy VI Advance

5 Upvotes

On this day (November 30) in Nintendo history...

  • Excitebike was released in 1984 for the Family Computer in Japan. In this racing game, developed by Nintendo, the competition heats up fast! Face crazy curves, hairpin turns, and daredevil jumps as you race toward the chequered flag and the Excitebike championship. Race against the clock or challenge an opponent. You must keep your bearings as you fly through the air and avoid getting clipped by other racers. Stay cool under pressure, or your bike will overheat.

  • Kaettekita Mario Bros. was released in 1988 for the Family Computer Disk System in Japan. This platforming game, developed by Nintendo EAD, is a remake of Mario Bros.. In the late 80's, a food company called Nagatanien was producing "Mario Curry" for the Japanese market. The company sponsored this remake and their name appears throughout. Their sponsorship also meant the price of the game was lower than other Disk System titles.

  • Mr. Driller Drill Spirits was released in 2004 for the Nintendo DS in North America. In this puzzle game, developed by Namco, as the titular power-tooled miner, it's your job to dig through layer upon layer of colourful blocks, scramble for air capsules, dodge cave-ins and race to rescue fellow Drillers. Features precise Touch Screen control, three different game modes (Mission, Time Attack and the frantic Pressure mode), six playable characters and a wireless Driller Race mode for up to five people. You'll dig this game - literally!

  • Final Fantasy VI Advance was released in 2006 for the Game Boy Advance in Japan. In this role playing game remake of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System's Final Fantasy III, developed by Tose, the newly translated classic comes with improved graphics and sound - as well as a host of all-new features! True to form, the game is independent of other Final Fantasy episodes. However, players will encounter compelling similarities as they meet complex new characters with whom they will embark on spellbinding adventures.
