    Saying "I personally do not/would not get much use out of the handheld mode, so I'd like to be able to buy a cheaper TV-only Switch" is not the same thing as saying "Nintendo should have made a TV-only console from the start".


    I don't understand how TV only is silly but handheld only isn't. Just seems like an arbitrary distinction someone has imagined based on their own particular requirements and circumstances. 


    Lots of people would buy a TV only switch. I know two people have put off buying a switch cause it is expensive that were gonna buy Lites until they found out that it wasn't possible to get a dock at a later date and use it with the TV. Who wants to sit on a handheld when you could be looking at a 50" HD TV. And obviously some people play on their commutes or whatever and it's a great wee time killer, but not everyone commutes or has time to play games anytime other than when they're sitting in the vicinity of their 50 inch TV.


    It seems like the logical next step after the handheld only version. Call it a budget version. Pro controller instead of joycons, no screen, no dock. £150. How many of you "oh that's a silly idea" fuckers would get an extra one for the bedroom or wherever at that price? Be honest, you know you would. 


    Though I'm not sure they'll do it until the sales start to dip. Why give people a cheaper option when the mad expensive version is still selling well. Hopefully PS5 and Xbox series start eating into their sales soon and we see one in time for Christmas.

    It’s not an easy game by any means, what games has she played before? My daughter is currently playing Link’s Awakening and enjoying it, she’s 7 and likes stuff like Animal Crossing, Pokemon, Pikmin - think she would find BoTW way too challenging tbh. 

    Yeah she doesn't really have any base knowledge at all. She's played some Mario games and Kirby's epic yarn, but don't think she's ever finished any of them. 

  3. Can anyone recommend a good kid friendly YouTube video or videos, not a walkthrough, but like a really thurough quick start guide to the game?


    I got my wee niece it for Christmas, she loves it but hasn't a clue what to do. I guided her through getting off the great plateau and gave her a few quick general tips. But I don't see her enough to help her much more than that. She's 10, and doesn't really have any base of knowledge from other games. I've had a look for myself but they all seem to be geared more towards people who already have a solid base of gaming experience. 

  4. That doesn't quite come across how I intended it to. Like obviously you should feel like you know these people somewhat. What I mean is that it almost feels like they should know me too.

    I forgot his son had died a few years ago too. Tragic life he had. 



    Most I've been upset about a musician's death in ages. 


    The only famous people dying I've been properly upset about are Bourdain and DOOM. Wild how you just feel like you know some people even though you never met them once. When podcasters start dropping I'm gonna be in a bad way. 

  6. It was heading that way long before Netflix were involved, but this is the epitome of that classic Netflix (really just current) "stretch it" ethos. Where they take something that was good for X amount of content and make X*10 amount of content instead. Every little misunderstanding spinning into drama when everyone involved should know better given everything that has come before.


    I'm predicting 6 seasons and a movie.

    GAME really are utterly worthless. £10 postage. Completely shat the bed with their courier set up. No tracking number in emails or online, no customer support live chat/telephone lines. Just send us a ticket and we'll try to get back to you within 72 hours.


    Absolute shit show. Meanwhile, people who ordered from places yesterday already have their consoles.


    Yes, I'm 200% mad.

    It's baffling to me that they still exist. They needed to just go away like ten years ago.

    I don't believe there's any sort of embargo. People are streaming it on Twitch.


    Here's the start of the game in high quality footage, thanks to Gamersyde. This is the 30fps 'Cinematic' mode that I don't think we've seen before.

    Why did I watch this? 


    Need like five hundred pounds... and to remodel my living room now ffs. Also for stock to become available.
