Rumor: More talk of why some games cost more on Switch

Much has been made of Rime’s price on Switch. Unfortunately, you’ll have to pay $10 / £10 extra for the game on Nintendo’s console in comparison to other versions of the game.

So what’s going on here? Well, Eurogamer reports that it comes down to how “the cost of manufacturing a Nintendo Switch game is higher than the cost of making a PS4, PC or Xbox One game, because the cartridges the Switch uses cost more to make than Blu-ray discs.”

The size of the cartridge also may impact its cost. Cards come in varieties of 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB. Eurogamer says: “At a high level, the bigger the cart the more expensive it is, although the price may vary according to print run (lower the volume, higher the price, for example – an issue that may affect indie developers who don’t expect to shift a huge number of copies of their game).”

You might be wondering why a Switch game would also cost more on the eShop since they’re only digital downloads. According to Eurogamer, Nintendo requires that eShop releases cost the same amount as their physical versions “in a bid to keep bricks and mortar shops on-side.”

The site further writes that the whole situation has caused some smaller publishers and developers to go the eShop-only route. In the case of Snake Pass, which is a digital download on all platforms, Sumo says “we have no issue keeping the price the same across all platforms digitally. Indeed, it was important to us that people wouldn’t be penalized by which platform they decided to purchase.”

If there is one tricky thing here, it’d be Puyo Puyo Tetris. The game will be $30 on the eShop, but the retail edition is $40. When going physical, you’ll also receive a set of two keychains as part of the Launch Edition – something not offered on PS4. In Europe though, Puyo Puyo Tetris will be £34.99 regardless of physical or digital.

Shock Troopers Review – Review

Run, gun, and fun.

Shock Troopers was originally released in 1997 for Neo Geo arcade cabinets and home consoles. Players choose one of eight characters to run, shoot and dodge their way through an army of terrorists to save a kidnapped scientist and his granddaughter. The game doesn’t look like much sitting on the eShop next to Zelda, but it’s still a great way for a pair of bros to kill time.

Each of the game’s three paths (mountain, jungle and valley) offers five unique levels leading up to the same final showdown. Levels fit their themes while still looking different from each other. Most levels simply scroll in one direction, but a few levels will put you in a vehicle or have you climb a mountain. Every level end with a showdown against a giant military weapon.

Players choose between using a single character or rotating between three. Characters all have different speeds, health, specials and personalities. Each one feels badass enough to star in their own game, but I quickly picked favorites: the chubby Maru and the deadly Marie Bee. The cast is impressively diverse for a game from 1997.

Holding the fire button allows for strafing in one of eight directions. Quickly releasing the button to spin around and fire in a new direction took a minute to get used to but was satisfying after getting it down. A dodge button helped me roll under enemy attacks but often rolled me into bigger attacks. Attacking near an enemy executes a melee attack and drops items.

Enemies don’t drop until you stop shooting them, so big waves of enemies require thoughtful releases of the fire button in order to take out the enemies behind. This was a brilliant move that kept the near-constant shooting engaging. A limited number of special attacks also helped spice things up. Power-ups are scattered throughout each level and push the badass level to 10.

Enemy bullets come fast, and I died a lot. However, dropping in more coins took a press of a button. Pressing the wrong button will decrease the “Continue” timer, so make sure to study the buttons before starting the game. The emulator has a built-in save feature that confused me at first but

The game offers both the original Japanese version and the original English version, but I have no idea what the difference is. Both had English text and Japanese audio. There are also two score-attack modes. Score-attack modes don’t allow for pausing, so hitting the pause button will force you back to the title screen. I couldn’t find the leaderboards, but I did upload my scores after each playthrough. (My initials are ASS, if you want to compare scores.)

As a co-op game with single Joy-Con support, Shock Troopers is a winner. It may be simple and silly, but I’ll probably find myself breaking this game out on plane rides for years to come. Shock Troopers was totally worth creating a European Nintendo Account for.

R4 DS Slot 1 – Nintendo DS Homebrew Game Player And Nintendo DS Lite

For new readers, here’s a quick rundown of just what the R4 DS is. You may also wish to read my other article about the R4 DS Slot 1 Device. In my previous article I went into the details of exactly what the R4 DS is, what it can do, and how it works. I will not re-write all of those details and features here once again for the sake of saving readers who’ve read my previous article. I would suggest that if you’re not quite sure as to what the R4 DS is, and what it can do, that you do go back to reading my article on this truly unique Nintendo DS accessory.

In brief, the R4 DS is a slot 1 device that allows you to play homebrew games as well as Roma and MP3 music, read e-books, watch movies, etc … on your Nintendo DS console. It turns your Nintendo DS system into a whole entertainment center; all for under $ 50.00

there are some quick and easy tips to follow. While some of these tips may seem obvious, it even took me about a week and a half of using the R4 DS before I came up with some ways to make my life (and game playing) a little bit easier.

1. Store your game files in a directory on your microSD Card. Make a folder called games, and ONLY store your games in this folder. It makes browsing to them in the menu much easier, and all your game save files will also be organized.

2. Store your MP3 Music files and video files in separate folders too, and in the case of multiple music albums on the memory card, you should make a sub-directory of each album. This is a MUST for anyone that has lots of music, with all of the track names labeled 1.mp3 TRACK, TRACK 2.mp3, etc … You’ll avoid conflict with file names by putting them all in one directory, and because you can name your sub-directory the name of your ripped the CD, you’ll at least know that TRACK-1.mp3 ABBA in the directory is from the ABBA greatest hits album.

3. Try to backup your game saves to your PC hard drive on a regular basis. Not because they could get corrupted on the microSD card in the R4 DS, but because you may want to go back to an earlier save point later in the game. It’s also good to get into this habit because you may erase a game (and it’s save game file) and not have a backup in case you want to play that game once again sometime in the future. While this one really seems like an obvious hint, you would be surprised to know that most of our technical support emails for the R4 DS deal with how to get back erased or deleted game saves that were not backed up. I recommend doing this at least once a week, more if you play your games more frequently.

4. Do not take out the R4 DS from the Nintendo DS console each time you want to add files to the microSD Card. Simply push the microSD card with your finger and it will ‘pop out’ of the R4 DS card slot. You can then quickly put it into the included microSD card reader / writer in order to change games and files or add music or video.

5. This is my final (and quite possibly the most obvious) tip. And it deals with the microSD card in the card slot of the R4 DS. When you put the Nintendo DS or DS Lite into your pocket or pick it up. Do a double check on the microSD card in the R4DS slot 1 card. Make sure that the microSD card is in the card slot of the R4DS and it’s not loose or ready to pop out. The chances of it popping out without you pushing down on the card are slim, but it could happen while you’re carrying it in your pocket. There would be nothing worse than losing your microSD card somewhere, because it popped out and fell on the ground. MicroSD Cards are small and tiny, and once lost, you would have a hard time finding it anywhere else except at a store, where you’d be buying a new one. If you carry your Nintendo DS in a case, then the chances are much smaller that the card will get dislodged from the R4 DS card slot, but it’s better to check on a regular basis anyway. Make this something you do before you even power on.

The R4 DS is a Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS lite homebrew and Roma player. It also allows you to play MP3 music as well as watch movies on your Nintendo DS. In essence, it turns your Nintendo DS into a full fledge multimedia hand held console, allowing you to play games, listen to music, watch movies, read e-books and much more.
