  1. I'm dead against using alternative store fronts not for our region. Feels scummy but not quite as scummy as G2A. I saw Kero Blaster is half price currently at £4.50. Excellent run and gun, great world building and characters - highly recommend.
  2. The small issues (sound emulation and lack of decent CRT filter) are a bit of a shame but I don't think I can really pass the opportunity to buy new Sega hardware in 20 years. I'll probably finally play through Bloodlines and Light Crusader and I can continue to practice chipping away at Dynamite Headdy.

    Kirby Super Star 8 games in one!

    Those SNES pads that Nintendo are selling (at some indeterminate time) don't seem to have a home button?That's a bit rubbish.

    That fills me with confidence! Spend £55 on a controller that has a deKay/10 chance it works properly or take it apart and fix it myself with sellotape.
  6. I'm hoping there is a way of getting the themes I missed, specifically the Splatoon one. I decided to unlock the Donkey Kong one and it is rubbish

    I'll have to try it out again on some SNES games. When I played Tetris 99 with it, it was utterly terrible. Never had a problem with the PS4 D-Pad.
  8. Some might even say, perfect for Switch. I hope it's a success and is ported far and wide because that looks really lovely.

    Decent and responsive D-Pad. I'm never using an amiibo. HD rumble is pretty nice but not essential.

    The Switch has made me suffer from the worst analysis paralysis in decades. By having so many options, and ridiculous built in faults I have dedicated far too much effort already into minutiae: - No screen protector but applied felt strips from eBay to the front inside ridges - Bought a USBC charger and cable after a ridiculous amount of research because I haven't kept up with the last 5 years of tech and thought I could buy something from Poundland - Still haven't 100% decided on the pad to play in docked mode but leaning towards 8bitdo stick + PS4 pad because I already know that it will do everything I need (unlike the Pro controller). Caveats are no good for tabletop mode so probably need another compact controller at some point, possibly M30. - Bought a case but still haven't decided if I want a stand (want one to let me setup vertically ideally) and a power bank. I am hoping I can forget about all this pointless stuff now and enjoy the fact that I have a new console without the ridiculous choice paralysis I have elsewhere.
  11. I did my first win last night - turns out I just needed to keep my cool for a bit longer as the 1v1 went on for much longer than I anticipated. It was a ridiculous win too as I only managed 5 KOs and basically nicked 3rd places badges. Trying to weave T-Spins into play but it's hella- difficult at the moment. Using this video below I can now spot the opportunities but getting the set-up eludes me. Most of the time I seem to either not make the well wide enough (I think I need to visualise the setup as a 3wide kindaof) or I don't build up the lines fully on the offside. Currently managing about 2 T-Spins in a game and it feels a little pointless but will persevere! Only opening I've memorized is the one with L-Shapes in the corners and the straight flat down in the middle.

    Yeah - just for charging it when in handheld mode in my bedroom. I thought any USBC cable would be fine but searching the internet came up with lots of detailed advice on USBC standards.

    Apologies - another super dry question. Does any USBC charger work for this? I don't have anything USBC yet but assume a cable hooked up to a USB socket will be fine.
  14. Yeah, that's pretty much how I'm playing. Switching to KOs when I have Tetris lined up and then switching back to attackers. I generally keep the stacks low. Combos seem to happen pretty naturally for me and I tend to keep on those when I have the opportunity and have seen how easy it can be to almost over to clear board. I have not yet learned to T-Spin nor do I think I can visualize how to give myself opportunities for them.
  15. So after a first day of playing this I can make it into the top 3 and get a bunch of KOs along the way - but struggling to get that top spot. Any tips apart from keep your cool and the stack low?
