  1. Afraid not, but treat yourself to a record player; it'll sound incredible, I promise!
  2. What would have been the outcome had they not prevented the further explosion of the reactor? What impact would it have had on the planet? We released this soundtrack and I can tell you there will be a vinyl on 6th September!
  3. I owned a Master System II for about eight months before I realised Alex Kidd was built in.
  4. This will be my most played game of all time. Calling it now.
  5. If you're set to fuck up KOs and you notice you're getting barraged with shit I'm guessing this is because you're targeting someone good who is keeping their well high and fucking up people who are targeting them, right? But am I right in thinking that instead of switching straight to Attackers at this point, it makes sense to flick to Random first, then switch to Attackers? Because if you switch straight to Attackers, and the person who was fucking you up is also set to Attackers, they're still going to be fucking you up. Hitting Random will move your reticule to someone else, and the original attacker will switch to someone else (unless choosing manual opponents) saving your ass. Is that right?
  6. Holy shit I won the competition shit! Just checked and I have an extra 999 points on my account.
  7. wen u get distracted by the side quests
  8. Picked this up last weekend. The man in GAME looked delighted when I revealed it was for me and not a gift as he had first suspected, because throughout the entire transaction he looked like he was holding in some kind of top secret information regarding Russian collusion, and couldn't wait to spill it, and so upon learning this information he immediately lost his entire shit and started talking about how great the game was, asking whether I'd played the demo (no), and asking if I wanted a furry little Yoshi egg to put the game in (yes). I slipped both into my drawstring holdall and skipped back down Oxford Street to the tube (but not before picking up a latte from Pret in excitement). Got home and realised I couldn't play it because I had to go and watch Dulwich FC play Billericay (went 0-2 down but came back and scored a 90+4 minute equaliser to finish 2-2) and after the drama of all that I decided I was too excited to be able to do it justice so I got drunk instead. So I waited until Sunday morning, AND WHAT A FUCKING TREAT IT WAS! It's probably in my top five Switch games. I'd rate it higher than Donkey Kong at this point. The entire thing is glorious. The presentation, the collectibles, the replay value, the extra missions, and all the little graphical touches. It's like a form of therapy designed for children. I love placidly making my way through new levels exploring as much as I can just as much as I love replaying old levels, brutally annihilating the environment in an attempt to find everything. It's just so relaxing and joyous. It's like the videogame equivalent of sitting cross legged in a field on a summer's day listening to Brian Eno and Wu-Tang and occasionally suckling the sweet nectar from a surreptitiously pocketed hip flask. And to top it all off, NEG hates it, further solidifying the game's status as fantastic.
  9. FUCKING HELL FINALLY A sudden wave of calm washes over me. And after 300 games of no wins at all, I win my first two games in a single evening, literally about four games apart.
  10. Almost certain I saw @utopastac on the Victoria line this morning playing Switch, although I had no idea what game it was (looked kinda dark and medieval). Anyway, if it wasn't you then you have a doppelgänger running about North London. At the moment I am: working out what the hell is supposed to be happening in Undertale, getting drunk and rolling the fuck out of shit in Katamari, losing to everyone in the world at Tetris 99, cleaning up the final few boss rushes in Hollow Knight, finishing the time attack challenges in Captain Toad, and playing through New Super Mario in Luigi mode. Awesome.

    Thanks! Luke Howard's album is beautiful and a much different vibe than FLOEX and Tom Hodge. And Ólafur Arnalds's new album is fantastic and sort of a mix between the two. I feel like you'd like those.
  12. OK, so I've hit 103%. I have no idea where to go now to reach 112%. I've heard and read so much about secrets that are not signposted at all, and there's stuff I'm doing which I'm sure isn't even contributing to the completion percentage. But I still need five charms, so I guess I should work out what I need to do to get those. Work out. I mean, I have no idea how to work that out, but whatever. It's the same criticism everyone else has talked about a hundred times, and it was what I suspected when I first got the game. I hope the sequel does a better job of telling the player what and where tasks are, and also has a better map system. It's such a beautiful and compelling experience. I just want a way to make sure I can see all of it. That doesn't mean removing the challenge, either. My favourite map systems are ones which colour code rooms and areas, so you can see when there are still items remaining, or things to do. Axiom Verge did a great job of balancing this. I don't want to be told what I have to do, but I'd quite like to know if I should be exploring an area because I haven't fulfilled everything it offers.
  13. I have *almost" unlocked all the levels in the Star Road shit. I need one single Yoshi coin in the main game, and it's on one of the lava levels in the final world. It's definitely after the checkpoint, but I have no idea where. There's an up arrow drawn in coins at one point, but I don't know what it means, going up at that point doesn't do shit. Can't look at a guide or hints or I'll commit Seppuku so I gotta keep grinding ideas. Great game though. Turning off the second button spin jump has made things about 400 times more fun. Gonna beat the main game, then go for Luigi's mode, then all the challenges.
  14. I meant to numerous times, but I had to commit to a credit card and student loan repayment scheme and never had the spare cash to to do it. It meant I missed an entire generation of games since the Wii, which makes me glad they're remaking a lot of those games, but it was a dark time. Although I ended up replaying a lot of my favourite GameCube and Wii games, which was a lot of fun. I think I might have been one of the first people to upload a deathless Kaizo Mario run on YouTube, like, ten years ago!? I'm going to need to brush up on those shell jumps ...
