  1. I’m guessing most gamers like cult films, and especially when they intersect like this. Absolutely fascinating insight into “the making of” https://www.theguardian.com/games/2018/jul/16/inside-street-fighter-movie-jean-claude-van-damme-kylie-minogue
  2. Yeah, I loved my 360 but went for PS4 this gen. I was tempted to swap back, especially when the oneX was announced as I liked the idea of the best 4K experience, a really quiet console ( my PS4 like many can get ridiculously loud) and controllers with the funky triggers and a decent battery life. But then I looked at exclusives and found very few, and after getting God of War thinking how amazing it looked in just HD, and did I really need to upgrade my console and TV when OLED and HDR haven’t quite sorted themselves out yet? The answer was buy a Switch.

    i Think the planned support is just these tournaments with characters to unlock each month and not much more. What’s wrong with swing mode? I’ve not really played it much

    ONRUSH - A New Breed of Arcade Action

    Just over an hour of the free weekend and I’ve got to say it’s pretty good. I’m coming off the back of playing Mario All-Stars Tennis, and I thought if it grabs me i’ll sell tennis and buy this. It’s undoubtedly a better game, but I’m not quite sure yet. For its many faults, MARIO tennis has the ability to provide massively thrilling matches online. Of the dozen or so races of this I’ve not had the same from this yet

    Nintendo Switch

    Got these off Amazon today. Joycons slot in and out perfectly and makes them decent controllers. £9 the pair, highly recommended

    Most impressive use of limited hardware.

    Fantastic, Type 4 will be 20 yrs old in December, The original Ridge Racer will be 25 yrs old in October. In the 5 yr gap they managed to squeeze a lot out of the PlayStation. Given the anniversaries wouldn’t it be a nice excuse for a re- release?

    Velocity 2X coming to Switch in August apparently. A really good game this, is definitely a recommend

    Well I’m alternating between Spike and Bowser jr. Every Koopa Trooper I’ve come up against has absolutely handed me my arse but I can’t play as him for the life of me. Online mode is addictive as hell and when you get an equally matched opponent it’s insane. I’ve had some rallies over 100 shots with blocked specials and last ditch trick shots all the way through. If anyone is even mildly interested just buy it on cartridge, play a good few hours of online tournament then either keep it or sell it for about £5 less than you paid for it if it doesn’t click.

    Fighting Games that are not Street Fighter

    My finger was hovering over the buy button for “The Last Blade 2” on Switch. It looks really interesting. I must say it’s a bit bewildering with the choice, same problem with old Neo Geo Schmups - I look through them all for ages then end up buying something else so this thread is most welcome for insight and opinion. Also a shout out for ARMS - fascinating game and had (has) amazing support from Nintendo

    Nintendo eShop

    Seen that there fossil hunters in the e-shop. Anyone recommend? I was thinking of playing it co-op with my dinosaur mad young daughter.

    This game is a conundrum. One minute i’m having epic, sublime, nailbitingly close online tournament matches, next I get a laggy opponent or am trying to grind out challenges on adventure mode with no restart option. Having to listen to the repeated exclamations from the characters gets annoying real quick, and the music is pretty atrocious. Having said all that - When it clicks and you get a well matched opponent it is exceptional. After the finely honed quality of MK8, BoTW, Odyssey and even ARMS this feels a bit rough and old-fashioned and clumsy at times and I’m surprised Nintendo let it out like this.

    Yeah I mentioned it earlier in the thread after getting stuck on that one half way up the mountain and getting seriously pissed off at no restart option

    Adventure mode is interesting, some of the challenges are fun, but it’s a real shitter that if you fail you have to click through the same post challenge dialogue then restart and press another button to skip the pre-challenge dialogue before you can have another go. Why can’t I just have a simple “restart” option? you can’t even pause mid-challenge and restart from there if you know you’ve already fucked it up. Seems a bit of a faff and not as slick as you’d expect from a modern game.

    I’m still getting my ass handed to me regularly when I play tournaments, but if you go in free play then do singles online it seems the competition is a bit easier. my tips for wh they’re worth.. Bowser Jr seems the ideal starter character as he’s so wide he can get to most shots. You can hit it harder with a double tap, not just the charge mechanic. dont waste energy on special shots, rather use it for quick zone shots as they’re just as effective but u can power them up quicker. If you’re receiving serve remember to taunt on every serve to help charge up your power meter.

    Played a few tournament games this morning and had no problems with wobbly connections. I haven’t found a character to main yet but there are subtle differences that really play out in some rallies. Had some real exciting matches, I’m well into this. I think this is like ARMS in as much as it will just not appeal to a lot of people, but is a great game
