    Nintendo Switch

    Not actually sure what "generation" actually means anymore... seems to be only Sony and MS keeping up with each other at the moment to what ends I'm not really sure. Nintendo backed out of the power game a long while ago. So Nintendo have a console out which has been very successful for them and has great games on it.... Personally its the console I've spent most time with this year... think its because its so accessible and just plays games. Its like a new generation old school console if that makes sense. I like its purity.

    Nintendo Switch

    I'd say £299 (or the same price point as the current Switch). Think it will be a while before Nintendo release one though... Think they have a great formula with the current Switch and just need to refine it a bit if anything. Better analogue sticks on the joycons for example and perhaps a more stable kickstand....
  3. Well I personally sold my entire retro collection and just bought the Nintendo micro-consoles (SNES and NES). Reason is they are nice and compact, have the classic games for each system inbuilt and pretty much have the same controllers as the originals. Not really fussed about modding them but can understand why people want to... its all about the experience with the convenience and saving space. Great having an option to put your favourite games on there too.

    Bought Puyo Puyo Championship the other day on the Switch. I've been playing nothing else since!!! Insanely addictive and a great pick up and play game. Also picked up Thimbleweed Park and Pang Adventures. Although neither have had much of a look in really. Nintendo are doing a great job on the sales too... Feels very un-Nintendo like
  5. Same for me... been in the new house for 2 months now... haven't even unboxed the PS4 Pro or Xbox One... Just been using the Switch.... Although I'll want to play TLOU2 when it comes out so probably dig it out for that. At the moment not really interested in the PS5 at launch either - Sony will have to start showing me something interesting to get me hooked.... At the moment its looking like a Switch and PC future for me....

    Gears 5

    Same here except it'll be this and some SNES gaming for me!
  7. Just play on my PC these days...My PC isn't particularly high spec either GPU is still a NVidia 970. It does have SSDs though which make things a bit smoother. I do have an X though but likely this will be going in the near future as game pass is on the PC.

    Great news on the SNES games - suddenly my mini-SNES is looking a bit redundant ...

    Gears of War 4

    Yeah enjoyed Gears 4 too great blast... The thing I like about it is that its not pretentious about being something it's not. Big guys. Big guns. Aliens. Shoot! Particularly enjoyed the last few levels. Also played this through mostly on the PC. Enjoyed it more at 60fps .. Lovely.
  10. Anyone had a blast on this? Reminds me of a cross between trailblazer (c64) and F-Zero (although no competitors so not racing). Great old school fun although infuriating at times! Essentially its a twitch racer/puzzler... just you against the clock and track... Switch https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/racedierun-switch/ Demo on PC:- https://store.steampowered.com/app/818140/Stay_Safe/ And Switch version is cheaper at £8.99. Worth a look if you like to play twitch games..... PC version has more levels and I think probably a few more bells and whistles (not tried that version yet). Controls are very twichy on the joycons (not unplayably so) however looking forward to giving this a shot on the pro controller.
  11. My sentiments exactly! I think it's because we've experienced a broad range of games over the years and a lot of "new" games are just old concepts with fresh visuals and sounds. Very selective about what I play today enjoy games that I can pick up and play or that can be easily broken down into hour or two hour sessions. Most of all I just like to switch on and play. Without too many patches or system updates etc. Why I'm gravitating towards the switch for most games these days (my other consoles are still boxed after my recent move and haven't really missed playing them). Going forward think I'm just going back to PC and having a Switch as that feels more console like than anything else. The PC will give me variety, provide a cheaper option at times and allow me to play deeper games or more leading edge games should I want to play them (particularly driving games which I love).

    Nintendo Switch

    Finally got an internet connection in the new place so Switch has downloaded #RaceDieRun which I pre-ordered a while back... anyone else been playing this... really addictive....
  13. Agreed takes space and has no value to you (other than possibly monetary). Use it. Or lose it.
  14. Just be brave and sell them... then with the money you earn spend it on something you will use (or an experience of some kind)! I got rid of whole bunch of retro stuff recently. Got some money in the bank. Not missed any of it one bit TBH. I did treat myself to a NES microconsole to go along with my SNES one. Between them and the PC have enough options to scratch the retro itch if I feel the need whilst having some nice physical machines to have on my shelf that are loaded with some of the best games made for the system. So they don't take up much space and have lots of content.

    100% would be quite nice to play this on the Switch again in HD.... it's been a long time since I completed this... (thinking back 2002!!! )
