Never heard of those! I pretty much only use the Pro and have the Switch hooked up to my TV permanently though.

This morning I caught the AGDQ run of someone playing Puzzle Bobble, haha. I love that game and was excited to hear the Switch has the NeoGeo arcade version! Played some of that tonight.

I'm impressed with how many NeoGeo titles are available. Some of the sci-fi shmups in particular look really cool to me. Anyone dig into any of the NeoGeo offerings? I'm pretty impressed with Puzzle Bobble and all the options/configurations available.

yeah when docked it's Pro Controller for sure. I love the Pro Controller hard. But off TV play, I'd definitely like a nicer dpad. I might pull the trigger. I'm tempted.

Puzzle Bobble is fantastic. After playing Bust-A-Move Universe last week and being totally disappointed, I might have to just give in and get the NG game instead.

I got one! It's really nice for playing 2D games in handheld format actually. I haven't tested it with any proper 'hardcore' fighters or anything, but it's great for games I refuse to use the stick to play.

I've only picked up Twinkle Star Sprites for that sweet sweet charm and versus shmup action. I want alot of these releases though. I wish they would do an snk collection of the 90s and put a bundle of these on there.

This reminds me, has anyone played Rival Megagun? It's a new indie game that is also a versus shmup. I believe it's also on Xbox and Ps4 as well.

I guess I'm going to have to start buying all these limited Switch releases, despite the fact that I don't have a Switch. Katamari reroll is going for insane prices, and I imagine Super Meat Boy will be the same...

I don't know about Katamari, but Super Meat Boy is up for pre-order on Best Buy right now. It's part of their partnership with LRG.

Katamari Reroll is getting rolled by predators online? Crap. I was wanting that, but later because I've got enough going on more than I'd like right now. I grabbed up a week ago about Starlink for Switch as Target last Sunday put it on sale for $30 ($45 off) and I've been totally surprised how much I'm sucked into it as it eats hours without realizing it (a rarity.) And then the six month old preorder I had for Tales of Vesperia DE showed up yesterday too, and I haven't even unwrapped that yet. :(

I also have over a dozen blu-rays plus the 3 DVD sets of the 3 years of G1 Transformers we never got in the US to watch too subtitled. Time is going to be hard to manage, probably not going to buy anymore Switch stuff for a time, but if Katamari is now into wallet rape territory by jerks I'll have to just keep at Gamestop to get one for what it retails at which sucks.

Wait are you guys just talking like this thing?

I thought you literally meant "only" the d-pad itself, lol...

Yes that. It's excellent.
