Is this worth playing? disappointed I was hoping for Twilight Princess HD. A lot of people are hating on Skyward Sword mainly due to the motion controls from the Wii version. But is the story engaging and any good?
Yes especially now that you can use the right stick for the sword controls

Don't remember the story much haven't touched it since the wii but I enjoyed it even thou it felt bloated (it's about the master sword and prequel to oot iirc)

would say it the longest story wise Zelda game

Switch "Pro" or Switch 2 won't come out until 2023/2024 at the earliest.
6-7 years, that seems fairly brave. I do wonder sometimes when innovation takes too much priority over pure specs (I'd love Nintendo to go full on Tim Allen "MORE POWAH!" but I get the feeling they've never known how).

(Yes I know how I sound like a douche)

GameCube was their last console where it was able to compete with the likes of Sony and Microsoft in terms of hardware power

They need to make the next switch a beefy machine if they want 3rd party studios AAA games other wise 3rd parties won't bother

Average console lifespan is 6-7 years.

Next Nintendo console/switch will be the power of a PS4 at minimum. Probably a bit more powerful.

I can wait a few years for a upgrade I don't really care about most third party games nowadays I mostly just play Nintendo's and Sony's first party games.

I don't see the need to rush for a Switch Pro. Power isn't going to speed up how fast their first party games come out. We are coming out of a pandemic and Nintendo has historically always had these game droughts so the pandemic doesn't help. Think the end of this year and next year will be big for Nintendo games.

I don't care for 3rd party games on my Nintendo, that's what I have my PlayStation for. Although I do want my Nintendo to have good specs for the AAA titles

How great would it be say you start a file of your game on your ps5/Xbox and then you can continue that save file on the go with the switch that would be the ultimate

You can do that with Rise of Phoenix you can continue your save on what ever platform you own the game on

It doesn't even start at AAA titles. Some smaller developers don't bother optimising their Switch versions or performing basic bug/performance fixing.

Picked this beauty up today, along with buying picks 1, 2 and 3.

You can download the cabinet with 1943 and Ghosts 'N' Goblins for free. Like how there is an option to play both Japanese originals and the English Exports of the games/time.

I have mixed feelings about Skyward Sword. It has some of the best Temples in the series, a great Zelda story and generally pretty good gameplay. It also has more Groose than any other Zelda game ever.

I hated some of the motion controls (particularly swimming), hated the repetitive, boring and forced sacred tear collectathons in each area and I disliked the restrictiveness of the three re-used 'open' areas in the game. Despite these issues, it is a great game and I'd be interested to see how it plays without motion controls.
