Finished The Promised Neverland...wasn't expecting Ray to be Isabella's kid was thinking it was going to be Emma. Is Isabella now going to be a decent person?
If you wanna know
we still don't know exactly what happened to her just that she's not at grace field any more

Yo Trigger made a movie? And it's art style is good? Totally getting a ticket even though the nearest theatre is 15 miles away.

They're approach to anime works insanely well in movie form. I remember seeing GL for the first time in movie form and being blown away.

okay what the fuck were people expecting from a switch 'light' in the first place? i mean damn did you think a handheld only switch would have every feature that a regular one would have just without a fucking dock?

I dunno, this is exactly what we were lead to expect when the rumors first started coming out.

Very thankful that most people on era don't work in professional advertising/branding/business in general, because "WHY CAlL It A SWitCh iF it CanT sWiTCH hoW cAn yOU fUCK ThIs Up" that is 80% of that thread is causing me to think I have a brain tumor

My only complaint is that I wish it was $50 cheaper so I could order one today with zero questions, and that they address how 2 switches can exist with one account if I buy one to be my main switch but want to have the option to use my old one

I'm only conflicted because I really want a Switch, and this drops the entry price and would make it easier for me to get one. However, I don't like the feeling of missing out and I worry about that, especially without the dock-ability.

Right now there aren't any docked-only games (that I know of). The fact they added that this is only handheld-only makes me think some Wii games might be getting ported over. The joycons have way better motion control than the Wiimote+ did, so I could see them doing that.

Then... just buy the normal Switch? If you wait till Black Friday, you will be able to get the original Switch for $250 at at least 1 retailer.
And a lot of the features that people are complaining about like "you can't take the joycon off and play 2 players on one switch".... I want receipts that anyone over the age of 25 has done this more than once as an owner of a switch just to prove that it can happen, because in all practical terms, when the fuck are you going to be in a situation to do that?!?
Having a system that actively prevents players from making poor purchasing decisions like 1-2 Switch or Mario Party is also a good example of a corporation doing right by it's customers. It's like constantly raising taxes on Ciggarettes to the point where it's $10 a pack now, or banning all flavored Juul pods from physical stores- You shouldn't be doing this, but if you are an adult who is consenting to this while knowing all of the factors behind it, you may buy it, but there will be a premium attached

i always expected it to have pared down features to make it more affordable, and to me that means things like no tv-out, but for some reason people seem to have expected that feature to still be there and i don't understand why

As we were talking about yesterday, these are the same people who once complained about paying for 250 channels when they only wanted 6 specific channels, and who are now furious that they are being asked to pay for every specific streaming service that has content they want instead of paying 1 low price and getting everything

I use two Switches with one account right now. The secondary account just needs to check in online to play the games.

While not docked only, no joycons means that 1-2 switch and super mario party are basically pointless. The latter is probably gonna be the biggest issue for switch mini owners.

It may actually be why super mario party strangely got no updates or dlc. Perhaps a sequel will be announced that only uses traditional controls.

Edit: I forgot about Labo, but I think Nintendo has too

God this is the stupidest thing. A different name for the device would basically be an equivalent but reciprocal problem that the Wii U had. (Different name for same product family rather than same name for different product family)

Yup. Switch Mini still plays Switch games. A new name would just confuse the hell out of people.

I feel like the Wii U gave a lot of people the impression that Nintendo doesn't know what they're doing, especially those who were saying that it was only a matter of time before Nintendo slipped and went third party

I worked enough in retail to know these questions would plague store employees.

'Wait what is the Nintendo NewName? Is that their new system?'
'No it just plays the same games as Switch'

or

'I don't want the Nintendo Whatever, I want a Switch that I've heard about'
'That is a Switch, just a new model'
'Why does it have a different name?'

etc

Exactly. Anyone who has ever worked retail knows what a shitshow it would have been if they gave it a new name.

Right, that's why I said it's equivalent but reciprocal. The opposite problem.

Not to mention ALL the branding they would have to put up with if there were two names for the system. Boxes, commercials, trailers, etc.

All I know is, WTF WHY DOES THE LITE HAVE AN ACTUAL D-PAD, SELL ME AN OFFICIAL JOYCON THAT HAS ONE.

Also all the people complaining are probably the same people who were all "so what's the point of a 3DS without the 3D, all you have left is a S!!". Of course they were going to remove stuff to make a cheaper, handheld only version after seeing the data of people who were mainly using it in handheld most of the time. Granted, this will be more annoying compared to 3DS & 2DS since Lite won't work with Labo, it'll suck for some parents to learn some games need extra controllers for specific games, but oh well.

Nintendo: "Rumors of us working on a Switch Mini are inaccurate."

Also Nintendo: "YO, WELCOME THE NEWEST ADDITION TO THE SWITCH FAMILY - THE NINTENDO SWITCH LITE!"

In weird news I think we missed?



Huh. Wonder what two fell through, and why?
If I had to speculate, maybe Fire Force and MHA S4. Like, it's weird that My Hero got pushed back to the very back of the block out of nowhere. Even if it wasn't getting bomb ratings, it would still make sense to air it before Gundam and Lupin.

I'm guessing Funimation probably doesn't want to their delay their simuldub premieres anymore so that they can "debut first" on Toonami.
