    WarioWare Gold - Out now!!

    It arrived today, a wonderful swan song for the 3DS! The back of the box suggests another interesting feature with Amiibos...

    A critical take on the Nintendo Switch

    ‘Likewise, I’ve played more games than ever but my PS4 is now a Netflix machine. My Xbox is unused for months. The last non-switch games I’ve gotta onrush (rip) and god of war, both I loved. Both I’ve played got 2 hrs tops.

    Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

    That Donkey Kong DLC looks like a proper expansion. Great stuff. . Might even get the season pass now.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    This is beautiful. and it is also the better game.
  5. Fantastic casting! but this is worrying; “(hdm) is written by National Treasure and Wonder writer Jack Thorne.” Edit: wait, wait. Not the national treasure cage movie, something else. His past work looks great. Eg. This is England. Phew! im so excited!

    Koji Igarashi's Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

    Aye, I've enjoyed the game more with each subsequent run. Popping to the pub soon to visit a friend, and theres bit of a commute, so I'm looking forward to diving back into it.

    Thats exactly what I what I was trying to say. Then veteran comes into it's own down the line. So bloody good.

    No, there are no penalties or bonuses specific to playing in casual/veteran. Anything unlocked can be played in either 'style' and you can switch at will. I'm just recommending Casual as a really great fun mode to play. Rather than to be dismissed as not the proper game. I've moved on to 'veteran', But I'm glad of my 3.5 runs on casual first. If you are used to the old Castlevanias then, yeah, veteran first makes sense.

    Koji Igarashi's Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

    Agreed, its a masterclass in how to make a game dense. It's got all the benefits of being short game, every gaming session can be both the complete game, and a new challenge. Fantastic design. I don't know much about the 'proper', 'bigger' game, but it's got at lot to live up to now

    Koji Igarashi's Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

    This is just fantastic. I've always wanted to like the old castlevania's (pre-SotN), but bounced off their physics (bar Castlevania IV, due to the Snes-mini). But this is a masterpiece. One thing that is often forgotten in modern games, is how fun it is to repeat levels and get to learn them. Retro games access that via balls hard difficulty. Veteran mode in this allows that experience, but the master stroke is 'casual mode' it gives the same experience because the modes unlocked 1) are super good and 2) motivate you to play again. Play it first in casual. It's just brilliant. After completing the game three times, and having one more casual run to do, I've reached the point I could switch to veteran, and completed the first loop that way. It's just a fantastic piece of game design and short enough that I can see myself playing it for years to come. Genuine GoTY contender for me.

    Nintendo Switch

    Think I'm going to get a Pro Controller finally (even though I adore the joy cons). I think I read something about a dpad update coming to them. That true? Any way to check I have the updated version?

    Nintendo Switch

    Emulator screen shots and runs OCR on the images then pipes that info to a hiscore overlay? it wouldn’t even need to know when to screen shot the hiscore table. I suspect you could take images and process them regularly without impacting emulation...
  14. If a tree falls in the woods, and no one is around to hear it, should it still cost £50?

    Nintendo Switch

    I'm a big fan of PS+ and Games with Gold, but looking long term they done incredible damage to the smaller indie game publishers. Far too much of the user base just waits for the inevitable PS+ release and sales suffer. Thats why the uptake on Switch for 'Nindies' has been much better.
