    Mega SG - New FPGA Console from Analogue

    I have high hopes for that 8bitdo pad too. I have very fond memories of the mega drive 6 button pad in that style.

    Thanks @Matthew Kenyon - order placed! You must be proud of working on this - the product looks class.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    Purchased this tonight on switch. Need to make space so that it can download and install though! You guys are making it sounds epic.

    God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    I finished this (the main story) a few weeks ago now. Must say it is one of the best games I have played this generation. It gave me something that HZD seemed to lack and I felt compelled to finish it (must be the story I guess).

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Once you’ve beat him the gam loads with you standing outside the castle. Nothing in the world has changed so you are free to ‘dick around’ all you like. You'll notice a star is placed next to the game save name to denote that you’ve beaten Gannon.

    Nintendo Labo - What's in the box?

    We struggled with this until we realised that you tilt the whole thing side to side to steer. I guess it makes sense when I think about it as that how most turning is done on a motorbike when moving.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    I’d suggest buying the amiibo cards instead. I know they’re dodgy but it saves paying over the odds for plastic tat and they function exactly the same as the amiibo themselves in the game.

    8th Birthday Party - Ideas Please

    Thought I'd report back on the party in case anyone else has a similar challenge in the future. Here's a summary of each game that was played and the reaction from the party attendees: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - 4 player races with 6 kids meant a bit of waiting around for 2 kids at a time. I'd say this went down well with those who had played MK before but the newbies struggled a bit. PS4 Sportsfriends - A few rounds of joust (2 x wand controllers) but the kids were too timid to really get involved. We then tried the pole vault type game (2 player) which they thought was funny but to be honest they didn't get to grips with the controls. PS4 Minecraft (4 player) - The kids all really wanted to play this so I gave in. Split screen on different maps, sometimes creative and other times survival. This was on for around 45 minutes with the kids swapping controllers every now and again. Nintendo Land (Wii U) - Mario Chase was a hit. 4 chasers on Wiimotes all chasing the player with the gamepad. Really positive reaction to this, lots of shouting, laughing etc. Quick games (max 3 minutes) and a very simple concept = winner. Nintendo Land (Wii U) - Fruit picking game (sorry, I can't recall the name). Similar to Mario Chase except the gamepad player is the chaser. Another hit. Nintendo Land (Wii U) - Pikmin mini-game. I think we had lost a child or 2 by this point so the remaining 4 were happy to play this for quite a while. I've probably missed a few things we tried (which were likely not much of a hit). In the end the Wii U and Nintendoland delivered in spades. Easy and fun games to pick up and play with interesting dynamics of teamwork and asymmetric play.

    8th Birthday Party - Ideas Please

    Just thought myself about a track and field type game. I think I have a Mario Olympics game somewhere, is that any good for this audience?

    8th Birthday Party - Ideas Please

    Game and Wario (Wii U) or Smooth Moves (Wii)? I would need to buy this as I don't own either (but that's not a problem).

    8th Birthday Party - Ideas Please

    My son turns 8 in 2 weeks and wants a video game themed party. There will be around 8 children in attendance, aged between 5 and 8 with varying ability / experience with games. I'd like to put on a selection of games, some competitive and some just 'fun experiences' that are suitable for this audience. Here's what I have so far: Wii Bowling (maybe the mini-game where you get 10 or so goes at the ever-increasing sets of pins) - max score wins a prize Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - 4 player races Something from Nintendoland? Super smash bros. Wii U - 4 player matches Minecraft - some kind of build contest? Not sure how this would work Mario Maker - a funny level that I create and a prize if you get to the end? I have access to a PS3, PS4, Wii U, Switch and if needed a PC. I could setup 2 stations (console + TV) to keep things moving / everyone playing. Can you suggest any games (or ideas for games within games) that may be suitable? Thanks
