    Amazing scenes. Love that this was on terrestrial TV.

    Feel like one big over from India (15 or more) and they'll do it. A maiden or wicked from NZ and it's them. Nail biting!
  3. Hope it has the basic gyro stuff for aiming in stuff like Doom and Splatoon.
  4. Does Mario Odyssey require motion controls (flicking stuff)? What will happen with this?
  5. I have a question. How long do people watch streamers or let’s play-ers for? I watch short sections (1-2 minutes) of let’s play videos to see what a new game looks like outside of trailers, or to help me remember stuff about an older game I’ve played. Same for streaming, but much less often. The screen is cluttered with graphics, they’re often not playing the game, or they’re doing something really odd in the game. I’ve enjoyed snippets taken out of streams, like compilations of people reacting to the end of RDR2 etc. Some Limmy videos as well are funny, but
  6. Playing Super Mario 3D Land at the moment, and its almost annoying perfection, lacking in any hard edges, has had me hankering after the messier Super Mario Sunshine. For every camera nightmare in Hotel Dolphino, or frustrating blue coin, there’s a spinning catapult off a tightrope at the top of Noki Bay or a high-speed dash around Rico Harbour with your jetpack attachment. It’s just awesome. Shame there’s probably too much analogue nuance in the R-trigger control of FLUDD, that a remake wouldn’t work quite right on the Switch.


    Wish I’d watched that. Sounds amazing.
  8. I too have always thought this. With shooters (this genre seems to be where the argument has been made most often), the right stick is where you do all your aiming. Horizontal tracking, pin-point and super reactive adjustments etc. If that stick position is good enough for all that, it’s surely fine on the other side, where you’re controlling the much more imprecise character movement. Could never understand the ‘wrong’ argument.
  9. Does anyone else think the NES version of Star Wars is a stone cold classic? You explore Tatooine in you speeder, you have to find your lightsaber from Obi-Wan. You can play as Han Solo and Princess Leia. You fly the Millennium Falcon and your X-Wing in first person. You get stuck in the trash compactor. Only weird thing is the complete lack of Darth Vader both inside the Death Star and during the trench run. Still, loved it so much as a kid.
  10. What I consider retro. Played as a kid: Arcade/NES/GB/MD/MCD/SNES/DOS Played as a teen/young adult: Arcade/SAT/PS1/N64/DC/WIN95/98 Played in my 20s: PS2/GCN/XB/GBA/DS/WINXP And they’re all full of amazing games that still stand up.
  11. So awesome to see people coming to this game for the first time and loving it. The Mega Drive version specifically has been one of my favourite ever games since I first played it. (I remember getting a sub-38 second lap on Big Forest once) After the Mega Drive was succeeded by the 32bit consoles, it’s often been referred to as that £70 game that was a shit port of an arcade game that not many people actually played. I’ve always seen it as a bit of a miracle. A Mega Drive game that played very closely to one of the most technically advanced gaming experiences available a
  12. I keep making and tweaking endless lists of games I need to play or finish. Not as bad, as I’m only spending money on games I play at the end of the day, but it really is a massive waste of time.
  13. Obviously wasn't going to buy 18 games at once, Jesus. Just saying that 18 physical switch games cost over £700 pounds, an Amazon shopping basket is the quickest way of finding that out. Also, the games aren't all brand new, haven't dropped in price, so suggests those prices are likely to stay high throughout the year. An equivalent selection of games on PS4/Xbox/PC would be a fraction of the price right now, and probably cost even less a year from now. Basically, the Switch hardware and it's games are more expensive than any other platform, and anything to reduce the price would b
  14. Totally up for a handheld only model. As long as it still has the little kick-stand to do funny waggle games and local mp. Still won't deal with the issue of physical games being too expensive. Main reason I haven't bought a switch yet. Today out of curiosity I added 18 physical games I quite fancy to an Amazon basket, many of them a few years old. Over £700. Fuck. Off.
