Super Mario 3D All Stars (SM64!!!, Sunshine, Galaxy) - Switch - September 18. LOL. Because I needed more games to play this month apparently.
Super Mario 3D World Plus (Remake with new content) - Switch - February 2021.
Super Mario 35 (It's like Tetris 100...but Mario) - Switch - October 1. Included with Nintendo Online subscription.

Then there was some VR-type game and a non-Switch, throwback handled release also.

Pretty sure you pre-ordered already, but wanted to note Nintendo said they’re only printing 3D All Stars through March 2021 as a limited time release. So if anyone is on the fence, just buy it now or regret it later when it becomes a collectible.

I installed an emulator to play T-Hawk 1 earlier the summer and the tricks came back within minutes due to muscle memory. Just gonna say that doesn't mean **** in the remaster. I'm awful.

I haven't played in like 15 years, so I chalked it up to that. But the controls have also changed slightly, and some new moves are included that weren't last time I played (I don't recall reverts).

It took me a couple of hours, but am hitting some pretty big combos now. If you’re struggling, going for the skill points in each level helps immensely. I was killing myself unnecessarily trying to clear gaps and hit jumps, but I came back later after upgrading and had no issues.

Also, if the new tricks aren’t your thing, they let you switch to just the originals in the options.

I finally broke 100K+ on a trick (which I know isn't that special). I forgot that rail grinds are where it's at, so I'm going to pump that stat now. My biggest problem to this point is just landing the tricks. I am always tempted to land with my player facing forward - meaning with the board sideways - so working to break that habit.

My thing is my go-to in the warehouse isn't possible because I can't ollie that high. Normally I'd start every run with a vert through the top room, do a trick or three, and land a grind that took me around the entire room. Can't happen with my **** dude.

I've been practicing on Coolboarders 3. Will this help me? :D

I've got close to 200 hours in 2 and I'm excited to start playing 3 fresh from the beginning. The new UI seems to be a lot better.


I've got maybe 500 hours in 2 and don't see the point in upgrading to 3 as it stands. They'll release a **** ton of more DLC, so I'll grab it when it's $30 for the base game and DLC pack.

Same here, logged a billion or so hours of CK2, will wait for the DLCs to come out before purchasing the new one.

I might be putting Wasteland 3 aside for a while until they do something with these load times. I reload in games like this a lot, as I like to try different strategies to battles, etc., and it is just rough sitting through 30-45 second load times, especially when you have like a $2k computer.

ETA: Updated load times - I actually timed it and it's worse than I estimated.

Nothing like dropping a Zelda Warriors game with BOTW graphics on a random Tuesday.

I've never been a fan of the Warriors games, but my ears are perked here. I know people liked the original Hyrule Warriors, too.

I'm only interested because there are supposed to be Zelda like puzzles in the game.

Anybody here played any Spellbreak? I played some this weekend with friends but the game is already super sweaty. I either run into people booting the game for the first time or pre-alpha testers who crush me.

So, I'll just say that I tested Amalur Re-Reckoning, cautious after seeing reviews and learning it's basically just a port with better lighting. And wow that game does NOT translate for 2020 in anyway whatsoever. Glad I didn't buy it.

Might have to get one of these Xbox Series S deals, to basically be the PC hooked up to my TV. Stick with PS5 as the main console for the exclusives I greatly prefer, but still think it'd be awesome to go from PC to TV with game pass and pick-up right where I left off.

Finally beat 5BC. I went away from Dead Cells for a hot minute and came back a couple weeks ago.

Anyone else do any sim racing? I've been toying around with a reasonably basic setup and I greatly enjoy it when I'm really into but there's so much setup and tinkering and adjusting before you get to that point. Plus, I'm on my Xbox One and I keep learning about how everything is better on pc.
