    Ever been totally hooked on one game?

    I put about 1500 hours into battlefield 3, which sounds like a lot to me now, but it was before I had a kid and I was working pretty nice hours. I think the game that most took me over was Phantasy Star Online, I was a student, had to pay for dial up on the Dreamcast to play online but to hide from my real life issues I obsessed about the game. After I sorted my life out and inevitably drifted away from PSO, I decided never to play a mmorpg ever again, it was just too all consuming.

    Nightclubs in Video Games

    Great thread! Tron 2.0 had a club called The Progress Bar. I still love that. It took ages to fill up
  3. Inexplicably I have lately been obsessed with Go, now this comes along and so I preordered the Eevee bundle, I'm so excited for that ball. Will it spin stops if I cycle past them on the way to work? The last Pokémon game I bought was Blue, on import back in the day and really didn't get on with it but this looks like it might suit me better. I just wasn't keen on those random battles. I'd love to play it with my son but he's only just about to turn 3 and I should probably wait a couple of years before getting him hooked on games. 42 years old and just getting into Pokémon, could be worse I suppose.

    I'd suggest Steamworld Dig 2, you could do it easily in a week. It takes an hour or so to hit cruising speed but then you are rewarded with steady progress. This game made me love the switch.

    Do get Heist one day though, it's just lovely. Relaxing and engrossing, that and Dig 2 really sucked me in.

    Games you should have played before

    Puyo Puyo (in the form of Puyo Puyo Tetris). I dabbled on one of my mum's apple macs many, many years ago but having bought PPT and playing adventure mode, I realise I absolutely had no grasp of how to play it beyond matching 4 and the occasional random chain. PPT's adventure mode brought this into sharp relief, and so some light reading into basic chaining has instantly boosted my game, and my appreciation of the title.

    Did wonder about those borders, seems odd that it would let you do a sub par layout.

    Come to think of it . . .

    I don't have them set up but do have Dreamcast, arcade stick, VGA adapter and a monitor that rotates. It does look so cool for Ikaruga and under Defeat. I'll buy a house soon and have space to do that stuff.

    It is done! I needed something in the genre for my Switch and it should do nicely. I do pine for Ikaruga though, there is something magical about that game.

    It feels pretty sturdy! I don't think I have any games to demo it but it is solid on the steeper angle.

    I've got a UK switch and splatoon 2 cartridge. Does anyone know what happens to online play if I take it to Australia? Also what eshop region is Australia linked to, USA?

    Splatoon 2

    If you want to win at splatfest, ask me which team I chose and simply go with the opposition.

    Splatoon 2

    It's not the main attraction but I enjoyed my play through. Also, it's a good source of meal tickets for leveling up faster online so if you are worried about time management this will offset it a little bit.
