It’s not quite the dog days of summer but that doesn’t mean it’s not too hot to do anything outside. That’s okay though, your Nintendo Switch console is just as good at entertaining you inside.
Screw those games. When is The Messenger out this summer for Switch. That's the only game on my radar at the moment.
What about DEATH'S GAMBIT?
Loooool ... Happy I'm no more a switch owner. WTF !!! So much crap in a single month
emphasis on crap
@michellelynn0976 A lot of non-exclusives, and some of them were awesome: Forgotton Anne, Owlboy, Unravel Two, Banner Saga 3. And great exclusives: GoW, Detroit. But your question isn't fair, we don't talk about "last three months". Compare the same month, Ps4 and Switch september for example.
Dunno about you, but I'll probably be dropping a couple hundred hours into Monster Hunter.
MHGu will steal your life away, the amount of content it has could last you a generation
Still sitting here upset, waiting for NEW Switch games. If i didnt own the Wii U I would think I am happy with the Switch as well.....
wait so a good chunk of those games aren't new games?
5 out of 10 games on the list are ports. Did you not read the article or does 50% not count as a good chunk for you?
@Gameseeker - meh, I welcome more games. They are new to the Switch, and depending on what systems you own, might be new to you as well. to each their own I guess.
Those are actually mostly decent to good games for what they are but nothing huge. I play games on everything so Switch is just a part of the equation for me. I get to play Smash ultimate later on this year and that is going to be huge. I get to play Dragon Quest XI on PS4 in a month....I get to play Shenmue 1&2 HD on XB1 in a few weeks, and Fifa 19 & BFV on XB1 in a couple months. Not every console is going to have a strong month, and August is usually a weaker gaming month, September is when it really starts up. Most already know that though.
Some really good games in there!!!
Not sure if ill just wait for a price drop on mhgu, still need to put in much more hrs in mhw lol.
It's always been hot for me, ever since 2017 March. The only problem is I don't have enough time to enjoy them.
come onnnnn, where the fuck is METROID, man? That or Bayo3 and I'll finally get the damn console
If you had a Wii U, as I did, your choice to wait was a wise one. Odyssey was quite good and I enjoy M+R:Kingdom Battle (Golf Story was super meh). After the early months, my Switch has just sat unused. I played the Octopath demo and it seemed fun, but it didn't seem worth a $60 day-one pickup. I'll likely pick it up down the line though. And the recent E3 didn't give me much hope for the extended future either. If you're a Smash or Pokemon guy I guess you've got those coming at some point but, sadly, they aren't for me. I would definitely recommend continuing to hold out for a while longer and see where they're going. I got barely enough out of the Wii U to be worth the purchase. I had believed they learned from their mistakes from that generation and would really capitalize on the popularity of the Switch. So far, that mostly hasn't come to bear. Again, the Switch is great if you never owned a Wii U. But so much of its value is from ports from its neglected forebearer. Hoping Big N has a nice chunk of surprises coming soon, and that they start tasking those 3DS devs to some Switch games. Doesn't seem like anything has come of that yet. Just...kinda frustrating at the moment lol
I'm upvoting because your assessment is spot on.
I hate to say it but this is exactly why I did not purchase a Switch. I feel like a burned WiiU owner, a burned Wii owner, a barely satisfied Gamecube owner, and a fairly satisfied N64 owner. Nintendos pattern has been exactly the same for the last 4 consoles. Come out with a console thats completely new aesthetically and release Mario, Mario Kart, Zelda, and Smash Bros. by default. This is what I've been pointing out for years now. Their consoles are nothing but new ways to play their same franchises. To their defense all the other 2 do the same thing but Nintendo does it in a carbon copy way. Once the WiiU was cut off I said, Im done with them. I'll pick up the Switch when its price drops or when its dead, whichever comes first. I enjoy their 1st party titles but Im an OG gamer that's been playing their franchises since the Atari and NES so the need to enjoy them day one has been worn out.
Only thing I would want is Dead Cells
Monster Hunter XX for me
Seriously, all of these games are available on other consoles. Why do developers continue to think that all we want to play are old ports? That doesn't show ANY faith in the Switch. I wonder what they know that most people are missing? You would think they'd be willing to take larger risks given that the tech is older. Hey, but we can play it on the go!! Once that novelty wares off, the reality is we're literally given left overs with a couple exception.
Which has been the same pattern for Nintendos last 2 consoles. First party hits (although they're really familiar) and third party ports.
Yeah, there are gamers that demand more from companies than that. The Switch pales in comparison to the 3DS even. You would think people would see that the Switch is Nintendo getting something for nothing.
Seriously!! And they've been doing it time and time and time again, generation after generation. They primarily appeal to a new generation of youth not burned out on Mario, Mario Kart, Zelda, and Smash. Then they rely on the nostalgia of older players to back up the new generation. Then throw in revamped under powered (day one profit) hardware, mixed with the only thing that holds it all together, solid 1st party IPs. Outside of that Nintendo has a business model that's designed to keep selling the same stuff for the next 200 years. Emuparadise is a threat to a company like that.
As of now my Switch will continue to collect dust until SMTV, I'm afraid.
And I am still looking for the reason to buy NSwitch. Nothing. But I will be on the boat as soon as there will be new Prof. Layton, Phoenix Wright and real, normal major Pokemon game.
Jeez so many great games there! Not enough money :( being an adult sucks! I want dead cells and rocket league for my switch quite badly! I think I may bite on dead cells, that game looks epic.
I've got about 60 hours on rocket league such a great game for quick matches when u have some time to kill. I hear ya on dead cells but theres too much other Indies I have to play through. Still gotta finish YS 8 and then hollow knight
What!? This list is just indy crap. Dead Cells looks cool, but I’ll be playing that on PS4.
@doggo84 not really. The gameplay is pretty dry, the level design is eh and it did nothing new. But, will it be nominated for GOTY? Yeah, undeservingly, it will.
What example of a great game have you played this year, if God of War is undeserving? People floor me, when does your game come out so you can show Sony how it's done? Nothing new, lol, get out of here.
No I will keep speaking. Octopath for one. Dead Cells is another. Spiderman looks great, but I haven't played the whole game. I mean GOW is not bad, but it's just another western game that favors style over substance.
So basically, anything that garners to your bias, gotcha. Octapath is the only Switch game that has gotten me to play over an hour. It's funny because a game with substance often has the community wondering what's next. This scenario is fitting for GOW, Horizon, TLOU, etc but because Sony also includes style their games are dismissed. Your bias is too deep to form a bipartisan opinion so why speak one at all if it is skewed? I know, because you have the right to. Do you own all the systems, with healthy libraries on all of them?
I'm not sure I'm ready to dip into okami again I played it twice all the way to the last part just because of the ridiculous end boss that I was not willing to torture myself through lol Im not into monster Hunter and the other games are ok but I have other things to play right now, not mad though there's already too much stuff out on switch I have octopath sitting on the side till I finish the other games I have.
