I own it on PS4 and never finished it (pretty close to the end game), but I do love it. Great atmosphere, music, art, and oh that narration. I want to get it again on switch with all the dlc but I'm waiting for a decent sale as well as enough free time for it. It's certainly frustrating at times but it's also rewarding when you do make it through a dungeon especially some of the longer more grueling ones.

Best advice would be to come to terms with the fact that anyone you bring could die at any moment. Silly shit will happen and sometimes it's out of your control. You can certainly learn how to prepare and prevent most disasters in the future but in the initial learning process you need to just experiment and see what's best. Team order and synergy is very important. Think about your support roles (who can heal, is anyone provoking, consider poison and bleed damage over time) and who has good camp abilities that buff and also destress. There's so much more to keep in mind but that will at least help out in the short/medium dungeons big time.

A streamer I watch who plays the game on occasion likes breaking the game down into two stages - the planning and the exploring. Both are equally as important but planning shouldn't be rushed because it's going to influence how well the exploring will go. It's a good thing to keep in mind and make sure you double check stuff before jumping back in.

OK, I actually tried to go back through this thread to find an existing opinion on this matter, but there are just TOO many pages. So:

 

What are peoples' thoughts on the Pro Controller vs. The Official Nintendo GameCube Smash Controller vs. the off-brand (PowerA) GameCube Wireless Controller? I kind of want to have a GC controller, but I know the Pro Controller is well regarded, and probably more flexible in terms of usage. I thought briefly about getting the USB/GameCube adapter, but I don't really wanna be bogged down by wires where the Switch is connected (living room).

 

Also, might get the Labo Variety Kit, unless somebody has tried it and it totally sucks.

 

Sorry if this is a rehash of previous discussions, I am just a bit short on time nowadays.

I use a Pro Controller when possible and find that it's great. Are you asking for general use or Smash? I don't have Smash.

 

Wrapped up Shakedown: Hawaii tonight. The game gets bogged down by repetition. Still worth playing for the art, writing, and an excellent FM soundtrack by Norrin.

If you're like me and already have a Wii U pro controller, you can get this USB dongle for the Switch:

The official Smash controllers to me feel like exact recreations of the original GC controller. (Edit: That comment is based on the wired ones. Have not tried the PowerA wireless ones and don't think I would.) I wouldn't choose to use one for anything but Smash anyway, or maybe games where pretty much any controller can work, like Mario Kart...I just can't imagine where the GC layout would be more useful or more comfortable than something more standard.

I have the PowerA wireless controller and I'd buy one again if I were short on cash. Otherwise, no reason not to get the official Pro controller. The PowerA controller is comfortable (feels much like an Xbox One controller, though slightly larger) and works well. I typically use it over the JoyCons, unless there's a specific advantage to JoyCons. It does have motion support, but it can't do everything the JoyCons can. It also has no vibration so it's not good for anything that requires feedback. Other than that, worth noting is that it's incredibly light, and while I wouldn't say it's cheaply built, it's not Nintendo quality. I also wish the placement of the -/+ and screenshot/home buttons were reversed---I keep accidentally hitting the home button as it's in the location you might expect Start to be. But the Pro controller is the same, so yeah.

Oh yeah, it's AA powered, which personally I consider an advantage. Rechargeable AAs last WAY longer than the JoyCon batteries. Don't own a Pro controller so I can't compare that, but it sure is nice to be able to just swap out batteries if they're dead instead of waiting to charge.

Excellent feedback, dudes! That really helps to make my decision easier. Matt, good looking out; I thought I was good to go for a second, and then I realize I have an original Wii "classic" controller that I'm using for my Wii U. :D

 

I didn't realize at first that the "official" Smash controller is wired, so that's out. I'll get a Pro Controller and call it good. Still undecided on the Labo, but it seems like such a good learning toy to enjoy with my kids.

Anybody have any issues with the Pro-Controller doing random Up presses on the D-pad? It happens A LOT when I'm playing Tetris and if I'm not being SUUUUUPER ULTRA precise and slow, I will hit up while rolling my thumb, which will let my piece shoot down.

Yes, I think that is a fairly common problem with an older version of the pro controller. It's like the sensitivity for "up" is the majority of the arc between left and right on the d-pad.

Good to know! I wonder if there's a way to adjust this? Seems too granular to be able to adjust this from a menu or something.

Still undecided on the Labo, but it seems like such a good learning toy to enjoy with my kids.

We got Percy the first Labo Variety Kit last year for his birthday, and he's enjoyed it.  It takes a lot of time to put everything together - expect an hour or more per project.  And, I did most of the work because (as you know) everything is made of cardboard.  It's not all that hard to do, but you'll definitely want to be careful with it.

 

Admittedly, Percy only plays with it occasionally, but I can't help but wonder if he'd use it more often if not for his almost-2-year-old brother being on the loose.  Just be aware that smaller children are a potential hazard to the continued existence of your carefully-crafted Labo devices.  Everything stands up to regular play just fine, but a rowdy toddler could be a disaster.  Especially one like Benedict, whom we have nicknamed "Destructo-Baby."

 

With those caveats, I think that Labo can be both fun and educational (there's programming, music-making, uh...fishing) , and you certainly might have a great time together just building everything.

Third'd this game is a gut punch but really good. I really enjoy whatever the genre is of short, forward-moving, you-can't-really-lose type games like Brothers, Journey, Abzu, etc. Sometimes they are not very memorable but I still vividly remember things about Brothers from playing it like 6 years ago.

my younger brother, who is my best friend, and I played through it nearly at the same time when it was like $4 on XBL and we both got pretty emotional. especially since it seems to know the future
