If you haven't already been using this site, it is very helpful. But can kill your wallet. Which is sorta ironic I guess.

I bought Retro Bowl on Switch for like $5 and it's basic as hell, but I've played over 20 hours. If gameplay is addicting it can make things worth it, even if the presentation is meh. I'll keep an eye on it for sure!

The Curling game got an update with minor improvements.

I just pulled off this killer shot.

Nice shot! I'm curious, is there a way to sweep behind the tee line after hitting a rock or anything like that?

Sports Story finally shown off, and it's coming in December! Looks awesome. This was one my list of long awaited indies it felt like were never coming out, so please buy it.



And also play it's predecessor Golf Story if you haven't yet, awesome game.

No. I should contact the devs about that.

I’ve been trying to finish Triangle Strategy but it keeps crashing on me. Has anyone else had issue like this in the later chapters? I already reinstalled and that didn’t help.

I tried Triangle Strategy on my old switch and it plays without issue. I'm afraid it could be a hardware issue with my OLED switch.

Which Zelda game is better, Links Awakening, or Breath of the Wild?

Links Awakening if you like Zelda Link to the Past, Minish Cap, or that type. Breath of the Wild if you like any of the recent 3D open world ones. Personally, BotW is better with a lot more value. But the simplicity of Links Awakening is nice too. Just a much shorter game.

That seems strange, I thought they were basically the same. Just a different screen.

I meant an issue with defective hardware. I think it was the micro SD card. I moved the game to system memory and haven't had a problem since.

Breath of the Wild -- Link's Awakening is quaint and pleasant, but it's still ultimately a Game Boy game at it's core and maintains a lot of the limitations of its original platform. I'd even recommend Skyward Sword HD to most people over Link's Awakening.

If you want to play an old school 2D Zelda on Switch you're better off going for Link to the Past on SNES Online, and it's free if you have Switch online.

That pause music went hard.

Every song in that game was an absolute banger.

Good pause music was a Rare trademark back then.

I can't see Goldeneye holding up too well anymore but I'll probably give it a shot anyways.

Personally, I think the GBC Zeldas (Oracle of Ages, Oracle of Seasons, and Links Awakening DX) are the best 2D Zeldas, period. The only 3D Zeldas I prefer over those three is Majora's Mask, and I'd put them on par with Wind Waker and Skyward Sword on my favourites list.

I'm not a huge BotW fan for a plethora of reasons on the other hand. Visually beautiful game with an awesome physics engine, but lacking a lot of the soul and core gameplay that makes me a Zelda fan in the first place.

I think you're about the first person I've ever seen say that -- and I say that as someone who completely agrees. I've given it two tries of 10 hours each and it just never holds my interest.
