Gamey Thoughts

Beyond Borderlands 3 achievements; thinking of a very Switch Christmas; wishing, and trying, to find time for my DS; thinking about how to play PC games on my Xbox; these are some things on my gaming mind lately. 

B3 to the extreme. I've finished every achievement in the game. Now I'm doing things that might be included in future achievements that might drop with upcoming DLC. I'm hunting down every last Crew Challenge and Red Chest and ticking off challenges related to specific types of weapons and gear. I'm playing exclusively in True Vault Hunter mode. I don't level because I'm at the level cap of 50, but I still get these tokens for doing the challenges which can be spent on slight upgrades to your basic stats. They also unlock new weapon skins and special abilities. I can't wait for the Halloween DLC coming in a few weeks. 

Switch on my mind. Every holiday season since this console generation started, I've been thinking of getting a new console. I got a Wii-U last year around this time. I'm really interested in a Switch this time. I'm wondering what kind of sales might happen. I think that a price under $200 might get me aboard the Switch ship. 

My DS stares at me every night along with its stack of games. When, oh when, will I have time for it. Should I quit reading? I don't think I can, really. There must be some half hour somewhere. 

A friend at work got me thinking about RTS games. They are hard to find on console but plentiful on PC. I believe I can play browser based games on my Xbox through Edge. I haven't tried it, but I think it might work. I wonder if the new Stadia will stream through Edge on Xbox. Wouldn't that be a thing. 

There are some thoughts of mine for the day. I'm also thinking of a Halloween costume. I probably wont do one because of money but it's nice to think about. My first thought is Gene from God Hand. I want that sleeve tattoo on my right arm. Not a real one though. I'm not that hardcore about it. Clothing would involve a trench coat, if I remember right, and other stuff I need to do some research on. But perhaps it isn't the right costume for me. I'm still mulling over other ideas.

The Switch is a damn fine System. As though you don't have enough games! Laughing

I have this Nintendo setup at home now, but I haven't had time for it. I probably should wait until I'm playing Nintendo systems again to think about a Switch.

It's got a lot of great jrpgs, man. I'm hoping for a next gen etrian odyssey for it. 


10/14/2019 at 07:37 PM

Ahhhh! Don't say that. Ok, if Etrian Odyssey comes out, I won't be able to resist. I hope it can play on Switch Lite. I read that only games that support remote play will work. I'm thinking, though, that that is most Switch games. Right?

No all games work.  Switch doesn't have remote play. That's not how the system works. But when you play games docked on tv, they have higher resolution.

Okay. I'll have to look up what games work on Switch Lite. 


10/13/2019 at 08:50 PM

Well if you're wanting a sub 200 dollar Switch then the Lite is your best bet. There's not much of a chance that they'll drop the price on the regular Switch any time soon.

It's still selling extremely well and they're set to surpass lifetime sales of the Xbone by  I'm guessing Christmas. No real reason to drop the price unless sales start to drop.

Switch Lite is very tempting.

If it works on switch, it works on the lite. But I think some games might have lower frame rate. I'm not sure. For two hundred dollars, there are a lot of games available. You will not be disappointed. 


10/15/2019 at 10:43 PM

I'll have to make a list of games I most want to play and make sure Lite can play them. Luigi's Mansion 3 for one.

I'd love to play that but I'm a little more hyped for Fire Emblem and Link's Awakening. Right now I'm playing dragon quest 11.

Hopefully you find that sub $200 Switch around Black Friday. It's such a good console even if I rarely (never) use it in docked mode, and it easily gets the most play out of all my gaming options.

I still haven't found the time for my Nintendo stuff yet. I'll still watch the prices anyway to see what sales might happen.
