Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

So, Cadence of Hyrule...

I had to turn on Fixed Beat mode because I guess I suck at carrying a rhythm. But for a gaiden game, this is amazingly addictive. I actually really like playing as Zelda and the battle is actually pretty interesting.

I picked it up because it's Zelda but I wasn't sure how much I was actually going like it. But it's actually pretty good.

That's actually fair. I will say though, once I turned on Fixed Beat mode (because I simply couldn't deal with the beat), it actually played close enough to Zelda that I've been having a blast with it. It uses procedural generation so you can't just look up maps. But it's also kept really simple so you don't really have to worry about it. There's no set order of which of the four dungeons you have to go to.

I've honestly spent more money on more regrettable Zelda purchases.

Got it last night and almost done with it. And I never got past the third dungeon on the original. :D

 

It's a delight to play and it's beautiful but for a time value it's kind of weak. If I wasn't such a Zelda fan I'd say to wait for a sale because as is I'm not sure 59.99 is a fair price. Hero mode may be something to try later to actually get more of a challenge.

 

But one thing that is definately an improvement is not having to remap your items for the base weapons and tools. Having a set button for the sword, shield and Boots make this so much less of a slog.

It’s a great game and i love it but I agree it’s not worth the 79.99 (CAD). It’s the same price point as BOTW and Odyssey but there’s arguably a lot less content. The only reason I picked it up was I got it for half off.

While I'm not saying you arn't justified in feeling that way.. Just remember that a lot more people probably worked on this version than the original GB version.

I played Link's Awakening as a kid and when I finished it, I was flabbergasted about the ending. Like, how could they end it there?

Er, it counts as a spoiler to talk about the ending, even though the game has been out for a long time, since there's a new game of it out?

I'm loving it so far. I played the original gameboy version and got it again on the 3DS. This is just different enough to be fresh but still very much the same game. Like the crane game is totally different. 8-way weapons are also cool.

At first I wasn't sure about the graphics style, but it works.

I had BotW on WiiU, so I never really got it on Switch. Cadence of Hyrule was decent, but hardly what I'd call a true Zelda game. So it is nice to finally own a Switch Zelda game.

So as I was playing through the second half of the game I came to realize my joycons have the dreaded drift on the left analog stick. So my quick question. Are pro controllers compatible with Links Awakening? Been putting off getting one but its looking like its going to be a necessity soon.

I'm playing it on Pro Controller. In fact, I can think of very few games that don't let you use the Pro Controller. It's a solid buy. I've rarely used my joycons since getting it.
