  1. I've had an original model Switch now for a few months, and I have to say I haven't looked back. The first game I ended up with was Breath of the Wild, then followed up with a few more as time has gone by. I am most impressed with this system, and I love the fact that I can take it with me, then plug it back in to it's dock and play it full screen (Pokemon on the big screen? Awesome!) I miss my 3DS at times, due to the game line up, but the Switch certainly compares to that now (from the perspective of a new owner). I'm looking forward to having the Switch for a long time to come, and building up a great library over time.
  2. I'm still undecided on who I want in my team of 6. Pikachu for me is a must (spunky little mouse), but rounding out the other members I always seem to have difficulty deciding on. Any advice or team members you recommend?
  3. I picked Shield up on Friday, and I haven't looked back. The similarities to all the other Pokemon games was expected, and I do enjoy playing it on the big screen then taking it with me wherever I go. I haven't "Dynamaxed" yet, but am focusing on catching different Pokemon and trying my hand at rounding out my current team (Yes, I have Pikachu in there...and Scorbunny...I couldn't pass up Pika). I did play Pokemon Sun on my 3DS when I had one, so the graphics and whatnot seem similar (seems faster paced, though).
  4. Well, with two games pre-ordered for November...that's a "no" for now. Luigi's Mansion 3 and Pokemon Shield are priorities right now. I've played the demo and did enjoy it, but I've never been a huge DQ fan, anyway. Perhaps later on.
  5. I personally love my Switch. It has the glass protector on the front, and I picked up a BotW case for it (since I'm a huge Zelda fan). I disagree about the portability function...works well for me personally (not for everyone though), as I was looking for something versatile that could go from the dock to being carried around and played whenever I want. I also recommend a $20 online membership, granting you access to the NES and SNES games I personally love. Many of the games I loved on the 3DS look stunning on the Switch, and I just picked up Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening and have been playing Octopath Traveler and a ton of Breath of the Wild.
  6. Wow, new site format looks stunning. Great job, folks. Glad I paid a visit!

      Gotta agree. Like most people, I resist change, and I didn't care for it at first. But it has really grown on me and I can barely remember what the old site was like.

      I agree. I've forgotten the old system, but it's been awhile since I've been here.

  7. Well, yes, I pre-ordered one and yes, I paid it off in it's entirety. Not having an original Switch had me wondering if I wanted a portable or hybrid. I'm looking for just the portability feature, thus the Switch Lite was a no brainer buy. Already pickup up BotW to play on it once I have it in my hands, and am thinking of the next game or two I want to get (probably Octopath Traveler and Mario Odyssey). This will most likely be my last buy of "new" consoles, and I will attempt to focus on collecting for it down the road.

  9. I love Activision titles for my Atari 2600, in particular Pitfall and Laser Blast (two of my favorites). Nary a flicker from what I can see. I could play both of these for hours and was always impressed by the way they programmed for the Atari 2600.
  10. Nostalgia and memories of a time in my youth where things were a lot different in the gaming world than they are today. This console has been in my household for years. I think I've gone through many consoles and PC systems, only to come back to Atari 2600 time and again. The games required a certain level of imagination, and the artwork was amazing for it's time. Games today don't require too much thought to imagine their worlds, but Atari games certainly did. Pac-man was and still is well-liked to this day, plus many others like Asteroids and Space Invaders. Classics that are different from the arcades they were born from, but still are awesome translations. Sometimes I become disillusioned with today's modern games and step back, plug in my favorite Atari games from yesteryear, and feel those tingles of good times from the 80's kick in.

      Well well, thanks folks. Good welcomes. Glad to be back with my Atari family.

       

  13. I have this game in physical form, and I have to say it's VERY enjoyable. The many aspects of the game are really appealing to me, more so than Elite: Dangerous (which has now taken a back seat to this game). I was miffed at first that it was on PS4, but I'm more than ecstatic that it came to Xbox One. This game is so easy to get lost in and completely lose track of all concepts of time...
  14. Hello, folks. Been awhile since I've been hanging around the AtariAge Forums. Good to see this topic! I've been playing two games consistently: No Man's Sky NEXT and State of Decay 2. These games consume a good portion of my gaming time. The SoD2 game is pretty good. Still filled with particular glitches, but this one always captivates me. no Man's Sky NEXT was my "need" for exploration in space after Elite: Dangerous. The next game I'm planning on getting is Doom Eternal. Looks friggin' sweet! -Unbeliever
  15. I have an original Xbox One (the big black box) and have had no issues. But then again, my internet connection is very stable and the Xbox seems to like that. I also have my Xbox 360 nearby that's plugged in in case I want to play some games that I have for it that are not BC with my Xbox One (namely, Kingdoms of Amalur, which I absolutely love). I'm not saying that the Xbox One is perfect, but I have never had any issues, including freezing up, with it. The updates went smoothly the last time it was required, but it wasn't a really "old" model that had one of the first iterations of the operating system. I actually enjoy the controller over the 360 one, and the wireless feature seems to have no issues. I actually prefer a wired controller since the Xbox One is very close to where I play, so I'm not worried about how far away I get (I usually sit near the TV and system, anyway...great for the eyes). The BC functionality of the Xbox One is awesome. Some games I really just want to play on the Xbox One, other games I can't (as I mentioned), so I am keeping my 360. Besides, both machines compliment one another on my gaming shelves. As far as retro games go, I have a few (Pac Man, Ms. Pac Man, Galaga, Dig Dug, Asteroids) and they all work just fine with no issues. I am far from saying the Xbox One is perfect, but my particular system is fine and everything (knock wood) is working as it should. The most enjoyable game I've been playing so far is Elite: Dangerous.
