    Nintendo Switch

    I'm heading to New York for work next month, thinking of picking up a Switch game or two if I can find any bargains. I'm right in assuming anything I buy in the US will just work, with no downsides? Will there be issues with things like DLC codes?

    Edge #325 - Settle your scores here ;)

    People get very emotionally attached to skinner boxes.

    Stop being facetious, you know full well the point he was making.

    The main problem with Destiny is that it's a game that relies on slot-machine gameplay and The Numbers Are Getting Bigger.

    Microsoft buying Obsidian Entertainment?

    Not really, I'm not bagging on the Xbox specifically, just that there's no meaningful reason to own one. PC - customisability, best versions of multiformat games, etc Switch - best exclusive games, portability, can play on the commute PS4 - Sony exclusives, blu ray, weird Japanese games, solid third party support Xbox - 360 games I guess?

    Alright mate I didn't ask for a list. None of that is reason enough to get one if you have a good PC.

    There is still absolutely no reason to own an Xbox if you already own a PC.

    A gear gated raid? So far, so 2007. There is an inherent problem with fusing FPS and MMO mechanics, in that not being able to see your character ultimately massively simplifies the tactics and the strategies that can be required of players, hence why Destiny's raids all feel simplified compared to pretty much any MMO (which has the luxury of being able to see your character, each character having far more abilities, and slower paced combat in order to make the encounters vastly more tactically complicated). That's without even mentioning the lower player count. This is besides the fact that raids and MMO gameplay (such as gear gates!) are a mirage and are ultimately dated.

    Destiny is fundamentally a mirage of a game, a semi-decent shooting game with a compulsion loop and an ever-increasing numerical system built in to hook users who haven't got bored of ultimately manipulative tricks used for decades in MMOs and loot games. It's properly grim.

    Get a monzo or a Revolut card and pay no exchange fees.

    Yes you lose existing credit, so don't do this if you have credit in your account!
  12. The first one doesn't have coop right? I think I'll wait for the second, I was looking at this as a coop game for the switch more than anything else.

    You can only play Mario party with single joycons, one per person. Yeah, it seems the bundle is EU exclusive, which is a shame. The switch is region free though so you could import it?

    Joycons are ridiculously expensive, but if you need more, it's worth getting the Super Mario Party bundle so at least you get a decent game for cheap too. Some people aren't into it, but me and my girlfriend played and completed the entirety of Mario Odyssey in coop.
