  1. No worries here - hasn't impacted on Haxchi or CBHC. Also in case it helps anyone in the future, I have managed to mostly answer my own questions: --------- 1 - I've bought my WiiU second-hand - is there anything I should look out for in terms of a potential failed softmod causing issues, or is as I suspect, not an issue? I didn't have an issue 2 - Why are folks choosing Haxchi over Mocha (with Indexiine)? Is it for the ability to choose a cold boot install? I still suspect this is the case - I've just gone with normal Haxchi for now 3 - Can I co
  2. Super Bell Subway - I don't normally like the tracks with moving obstacles but the fixed traintracks make it easy to plan ahead and play the risk/reward. Some nice variation of routes have folks criss crossing in nice ways: Also the music!
  3. Hello - I've just bought a WiiU and I am going to do this soft-mod so I can continue to play Wii and GameCube games online. I have a bunch of questions though before I start (the WiiU is a very confusing system so it seems natural that I have lots of questions!) 1 - I've bought my WiiU second-hand - is there anything I should look out for in terms of a potential failed softmod causing issues, or is as I suspect, not an issue? 2 - Why are folks choosing Haxchi over Mocha (with Indexiine)? Is it for the ability to choose a cold boot install? 3 - Can I copy and run ripped Wi
  4. Crap news. Easily my favourite Sony studio but after Toyama followed Ueda I thought this might be the direction of travel.
  5. Just to echo I think Phoenix Wright is a great starting point. I've seen a debate online recently that we shouldn't be calling these games visual novels, due to the history and how the genre developed, and instead should be japanese adventure games. I do think that the current usage can be difficult to cover the variation between titles like @Wiperoutlined on the first page of this topic.
  6. Splatoon 2 has sold 11.9 million copies and is the 9th best selling game on the Switch.

    Boom Street

    This week started with me looking at videos of Boom Street, then hoping that it might be miraculous announced for the Switch at the Nintendo Direct. It wasn't (I understand that this was such a massive flop I'm not sure we will ever get another version in English ever again). So I picked it up on Friday and learned the mechanics over a couple of games against CPU. Tonight though, I managed to organise a game through Wiimmfi and played a 3 hour game online! I came last but it was certainly a lot of fun, and learnt a lot from watching and talking to veterans players:
  8. I've heard it described as Phoenix Wright without the courtroom scenes and has scenes which are quite dark for a Nintendo game. Game scenario was written by Yoshio Sakamoto of Metroid, Wario Ware and Rhythm Heaven/Paradise fame. He is consulting on this remake. Personally, having a new old game with such history is really special and hopefully captures similar vibes to other 80s adventure titles. Not sure on that price tag though.
  9. Worth mentioning here as well - the Famicom Disk only games Famicom Tantei Club Parts I and II are finally getting English releases. These games came out in 1988 and have never been officially translated, and only the 2nd game has a fan translation. That's a 33 year wait for a Nintendo game to be localised for the west! The games are being remade by Mages/5pb of Steins Gate fame. It's only been mentioned as a digital release currently and £50 bundle on the eShop. I do kinda wish it was closer in style to the box art of the original though!
  10. I think it all looks great! I'm very much interested to see what they do with the single player campaign this time around as they have so much of the world built-up I could definitely see them going all out this time.
  11. They announced a new Crayon Shin Chan game on the Japanese Direct that totally looks like a My Summer Vacation/Attack of the Friday Monsters. Would not be at all surprised if some of those folk are involved.
  12. Totally! Pretty sure it was the original, unlike that shit annoying cover of Have Love Will Travel I hear in that insurance company adverts. Most jarring part in the entire Direct - the music mixed with these characters playing a game that I can't tell if they are parodying something? Are those characters even in the game? Weirdly bland even with all the superfluous presentation efforts they made.
  13. DING DING DING! No More Heroes is probably coming this year now, but still feeling good on all my other game release/announcement predictions.
  14. Yes! Although I used Revolution it works with Nintendont aswell. You must play w game from an ISO dump in order to utilise the Wii WiFi adapter: https://amp.reddit.com/r/PSO/comments/d8ih7k/nintendont_bba_support_for_all_versions_of_pso_gc/ The other benefit of this, is that there are ISO patches that offer improvements. I've patched my PAL copy to enable progressive scan, widescreen, increased draw distance, and most helpful of all - utilisation of the C-Stick to switch between 4 custom button pallets increasing the available slots from 6 to 24! These patches can
