  1. The Team Star Grunt theme is amazing too. I know Toby Fox wrote the main overworld theme, but I feel like this one has to be by him too. Just a shame that by the time it really kicks in at 1:02, you've probably beaten the puny grunt lol.
  2. She won't care, my 6 year old has been on it all morning and hasn't once mentioned LOD issues or stuttering. It is a bit on the rough side, but it's only grumpy old gamers who'll let it spoil the game.
  3. Nice. Looks like a new long range shooter, a super wide roller, and a multi-shot sniper rifle. One brand new level and Flounder Heights coming back. And a Splattershot with Splat Bombs, so I can finally hang up my trusty old Jr. Big Run at last too. The new shooter looks like an old Super Soaker, with the pump on the front, so I wonder if it has some sort of charge ability? Might be a variation on the Squeezer?
  4. I've trained her well I know you can attrition your way to both, but she's actually not bad considering it's her first non-pokemon game.
  5. Splat Zones has always been my favourite, I guess because it was the only ranked mode available at first in Splatoon 1, so it always feels like the 'main' mode to me.
  6. Whew, just had a 5-0 series in S rank Splat Zones! That was intense.
  7. What's the highest number of splats anyone's scored in a match? Mine's this from a few days ago. We then had this ridiculous match where I got 22 but one of the team had 32! We had 88 between us, I'm not really sure how there was even time to kill them that many times.
  8. It's called Pro because it calculates a power/skill level after a few matches and matches you with similar players, Nintendo publishes the top 100 Pro players based on power level at the end of the Splatfest so it's something to aim for for the really top players. I somehow engaged beast mode tonight and had 12 straight wins for Gear in the open queue, still haven't seen a bloody tricolour match though! We finally lost against those Team Fun bastards in a 10x match of all things.
  9. I could do pretty much any evening after 9, except when Bake Off is on lol.
  10. I'm hoping that there'll be some sort of option to play the dual stick controls with 2 joycons. The controls for for Sin and Punishment are heavily customized towards it compared to the controls for the other N64 releases, so it's the sort of thing that's possible.
  11. Players who really know what they're doing can be useful with pretty much any weapon in Turf War, but generally you want to stick to simple shooters like the Splattershot, Splatershot Jr, Aerospray, NZap etc, or rollers. Most of the weirder weapons have their niches in the various ranked modes, the .96 Gal is a murder machine in Tower Control for example, but not that effective in Turf War. Personally I just use the Splattershot Jr for pretty much everything though, at least until they presumably add the Wasabi/Tentatek Splatershoot with Splat Bombs in at some point.
  12. A nice detail I just noticed is if you angle the camera right you can see that the holograms in the lobby are actually being projected from projectors on the roof.
  13. Splatoon 3, and Pokemon Scarlet/Violet in November. I've been told that I'll have to get Bayonetta 3 for Christmas instead of at launch because of the cost of everything at the moment Thanks for reminding me about Mario and Rabbids, hopefully it turns out crap so I don't have to figure out how to buy that too haha.
  14. Yeah there's a load of totally made up stuff in there, e.g. a sprint button, open world single player, playable Callie and Marie etc. What an odd site.
  15. Really, where did you see that? Splatoon has never had split screen before, the closest was a balloon popping minigame on the Wii U where one person could play on the gamepad, and I think that ran at 30 FPS.
  16. That'll be because you're in the Pro league, it unlocks after 10 games. You can pause being in it in the options, that should put you back on standard lanes. I only know that because it was on one of the loading screens, seems like a lot of useful information is only shown there!
  17. Just want to thank @LaveDisco for talking up Dusk in the B category. I bought it on sale on the eShop and it's fucking amazing. Thought I'd give myself 5 mins off work to try it out and an hour later I'm struggling to turn it off.
  18. Before reading this thread I barely knew what Returnal was, now I find myself actually wanting a PS5! Oh well, maybe in a few years time. Game of the Year 2021 A1. Metroid Dread - I do wish it had been a bit less linear and more like Super Metroid, but the minute to minute gameplay is just so slick and fun to play and the overall presentation is fantastic. It helps that it looked amazing on my new OLED Switch too. Some great boss battles too, really hard but always fair so you get a bit further each time. I agree with @Wiper that the controls could have done with some options though, my old hands were pretty fucked by the time I finished it. I don't remember exactly what was wrong with them, too much reliance on L and R for things that should have been on ZL and ZR I think. I could have remapped them at a system level, but...I'm lazy. A2. Game Builder Garage - I put over 100 hours into this in the space of a few weeks, which with the amount of gaming time I get is neither easy or advisable! It's a really accessible way to make simple games, but the restrictions do start to grate when you try and make something more complex. It's a shame there's no in-game sharing hub like Mario Maker, but it's not hard to see why given it's a lot easier to just draw a cock and balls texture than make one out of blocks. A3. No More Heroes III - I love that this looks like crap, and it doesn't give a toss. The important bits are really fun to play anyway. A4. Neo: The World Ends With You - Been playing this since Christmas, it starts a little slow but it's starting to pick up now, and it's just so stylish and fun to play. The original is probably my favorite DS game, so it's amazing to finally be playing a sequel that really stays true to the original. A5. New Pokemon Snap - Another dream sequel that expands and improves on the original in so many ways. Game of the Year (premiered anywhere pre-2021) B1. Quake B2. Streets of Rage 4 B3. Baba Is You (Level editor expansion) Biggest Disappointment of the Year Z1. The usual wankers still being wankers Z2. NFTs Z3. Not playing Returnal, apparently Sound Design of the Year S1. No More Heroes III S2. Neo: The World Ends With You S3. Deltarune Chapter 2 Visual Design of the Year V1. Metroid Dread V2. Bowser's Fury V3. New Pokemon Snap Writing of the Year W1. No More Heroes III W2. Neo: The World Ends With You W3. Deltarune Chapter 2 Format of the Year F1. Switch (OLED) - Love that screen so much. Publisher or Developer of the Year P1. Nintendo
  19. Haha, those MOBA guys should have done a bit of research before splashing 4.5 million on that place, it's already in the process of splintering and falling apart and this will finish it off. Shame, it started with good ideals but it's just such a hellhole now. I've joined the new Nintendo focused offshoot https://famiboards.com/ and it's much nicer, for now at least...
  20. Daaaamn I just tried Sayonara Wild Hearts on the OLED, just insane...
  21. Couldn't resist setting it up, the screen is lovely. It's amazing how suddenly my perfectly ok old switch transformed into a scuffed up, wobbly old piece of crap once I turned the new one on! One slight design flaw with the new dock though, the old one has rubber feet to stop it sliding around, and the new one doesn't. Because of where everything plugs in, the wires are almost at full stretch and it wouldn't take much for one of the kids to catch them and slide the whole thing off. The old one had the same issue with the wires and it never felt like that was a risk. It was a bit sad going through my massive list of eShop games and deciding to what to redownload to the new Switch, I've spent a lot of money on stuff that's not even worth the effort of redownloading haha.
  22. Ivan from DPD has come through! Now, how much of my 'work' time this afternoon can I justify using to set it up...
  23. Woop, got my delivery slot for this afternoon now. Looks like I could have just gone to Smyths and bought one this morning anyway though haha.
