The sheer magnitude of the post-launch support for Bomberman is the first good news to come out of Konami in years. It's the complete antithesis to everything they've become in recent times. There was a post in another thread that said his segment this week should literally just be him staring at the screen speechless.

No it isn't. Even if you don't care for their mobile and arcade offerings, they are still great and have been for years.

Hopefully their console offerings improve as well, if only to silence the insanely annoying Jim Sterling Hashtag Militia.

I want this but the price is too high, and I'm all digital so that makes things harder.

Nah, they picked the right one. :P The original/Parodius Viper is the best.

Now that he's in it I might actually have to get this game at some point.

Between this and the patch, I might just have to pick this up!

One thing I'm not sure I understand though is the gem system. Are there a bunch of micro-transactions involved to get the gems needed for the shop, or is it all earned exclusively through gameplay?

Konami have really redeemed themselves with Bomberman. Everything about the game itself and post release support has been great.

Far from it. Temporarily getting a few of their devs off forced janitor duty to put out some extra content for their little game does not make up for their shit.

At least they're doing something with their IP's...
Still, the chances of us seeing a new Castlevania, Silent Hill or Gradius are slim to none.

Nintendo needs to convince more publishers to bring their multi-player classic to the Switch and keep feeding them with free updates ala Splatoon.

Next stop: Capcom. Gimme Power Stone 3. Maybe convince Sega to give us Anarchy Reigns 2. And go throw some money at Crytek for a new Timesplitters.

To be fair, much of the hate comes from abhorrent business practices and openly moving away from gaming after saying they wouldn't (IIRC). Their actual input this gen has been pretty small across the board, even if they aren't putting out shit.

Will we actually be seeing this on the Switch though? I know that the 3DS has some games with patches on the cartridge, but those are more the exception than the rule.

I've said this since day 1 too, thinking they'll add them and then port the arcade game to Switch!

I've been on the fence about picking this game up. On the one hand I really wanted it for the multiplayer craziness of the gameplay. On the other hand I couldn't justify buying it at the price, and the technical problems that people kept mentioning didn't help either. But now I may buy it after the improvements they've made. But probably not right now with Puyo puyo tetris and Mario kart 8 deluxe coming out next week (RIP wallet). Gonna wait for a dry spell period of major games where by then it should hopefully be much cheaper.
