The worlds are getting more interesting as I progress, but don't quite have the same wow factor as the first time I played Mario 64 or Galaxy yet.

 

I'm actually surprised at how much it is invoking those feelings of playing Super Mario 64 back in the day, which is impressive considering it doesn't have the novelty of trailblazing 3D gameplay going for it.

 

Tried using split joycons as the game recommends, but wasn't feeling it and switched to pro controller which is so much nicer to me.

 

Up to New Donk City at the moment (just spent ages hanging out in City Hall taking photos/video for those that have made it to that part). The whole game has been a delight so far. I'm never usually into collecting everything, but will definitely be going for all purple coins and moons. And I also never get into Photo Modes in games, but have had a lot of fun with the one in this game - the filter options are so good.

My son and I kinda took turns playing through the story mode since friday night, he played while I was doing grown up stuff so between us we reached end credits around 7pm last night. Looks like there's plenty to do post-game so will crack into that tonight.

I'm super tempted to get this to play with my 5 year old. Did you give co-op much of a go? 

We've been playing Rayman together lately and she can get a bit frustrated with that so trying to find something that she can progress with on her own but also be able to join in too.

Yeah we did try co-op but honestly I hated it. We took turns being mario / cappy and it just never seemed for feel right. We had a far better time when we just passed the controls between us to play certain parts. Admittedly he played most of it but I really enjoyed watching and seeing him experiment and finding his own solutions.

Sounds good - cheers for that! Everytime we go into EB she picks it up and asks me to buy it. She hasn't even seen any gameplay clips so I will have to show her! I'm trying to teach her to persevere etc and just give things a try. From what I've seen I imagine she'd have fun just running around picking up coins haha

I'm really considering selling my Xbox One and buying a Switch instead. Nintendo seem to be doing much more interesting stuff than Microsoft.

I did sell my PS3 and Vita in order to put money towards it but i dont know that i would go as far as to ditch my primary gaming console. Definitely see the Switch (At least for the time being) as my secondary console. This may change though with time.

I wouldn't blame someone who has a Xbox ps4 and switch selling the Xbox.

There hasn't been enough exclusives to bother turning mine on for a while, but yea agree with coffee because good multiplat games come out.

I might wait and see until after Christmas for some deals. I got some Football money coming in and I might get some from family during Christmas.

A switch is $299 here in Los Angeles,  I have been humming and harring about getting one here.  If i do it will have the american ac adapter.  I assume I could  play it with a travel adapter, but not 100% sure if the voltage will be ok?

 

Basically works out to be about $110 cheaper than buying in NZ but not sure its worth the hassle if I have to buy an AC Adapter for $50 in NZ
