  1. I'm absolutely all in for this. The original is the best Resident Evil 4 that isn't Resident Evil 4.
  2. I thought Virginia was absolutely fantastic, and Last Stop looks interestingly different in style and theme. I'm not expecting an awful lot of interaction or choice but if the ride is as good as the first game we're in for a treat.
  3. I'm still in at the moment, but I do think I may cancel if I don't get in the first batch. Part of the appeal of the machine is the steady release schedule with everyone dropping on the new game at once. I'm not all that optimistic this thing will be around for years.
  4. Yeah, it's definitely been widely derided and the reaction surely goes some way to explain why Breath of the Wild is so drastically different. Of course, those of us who loved it on the Wii are painfully aware anyway because we've spent the last decade being told how wrong we are and how tired the format was and how motion controls don't work and how the text is a bit slow and how it repeats itself and how the text is a bit slow.
  5. Realise I'm in a hell of a minority here, but it's so nice to be back in a 'normal' Zelda after Breath of the Wild. I do hope they make some more traditional ones in tandem with the modern version.
  6. They're going to be well embarrassed when they realise they've forgotten to put a crank on it.
  7. And the phrase 'Arrivederci, it's one on one' a perfect summary of the final.
  8. Yeah, I played through it on the Switch last weekend in basically two sittings and absolutely loved it. So pleased I managed to avoid too much of the noise around it apart from 'it's good'.
  9. I'm not finding him particularly engaging, but his level is cool and I do like the throw animations. Nice to have Tekken rep in the roster.
  10. I think just Solo Challenges are where this is at for me. Quite happy to just try and better my own scores (NOT TIMES!) on the courses because that bit is actual, proper fun. It's all the weird bullshit they've smothered it in elsewhere that's the problem.
  11. Speed Gold in Adventure Mode just doesn't work for me at all. For a start, I'm not entirely sure if I'm supposed to be trying to play quickly or well. The actual process of running is piss poor boring. But worse of all, because you've got to control your character whilst the ball is in mid-flight you don't actually see it land - robbing you of both the satisfaction of watching a cracking shot and also the opportunity to learn when it goes pear-shaped. I've had fun just playing a normal 18 holes on my tod (perfect kind of thing for when you're half-watching the football), but some the decisions made in this game are proper bizarre. It feels like it's trying to fill a hole in the release schedule, but then I'm not even sure that hole exists, so fuck knows what they're playing at.
  12. I actually really enjoyed Tennis Aces but this definitely feels Super Rushed* *struggle to imagine I'm the first person to make this joke but then a lack of effort or originality seems to sum the whole thing up rather nicely.
  13. I also found this confusing. It does have a single, static screen to explain it but given that the whole process of a 'normal' shot involves two button presses anyway and a power bar that overlaps itself it's pretty poorly described.
  14. Ooh, ooh, ooh! I bloody love a list. 15. Mario Golf 14. Donkey Kong Country 3 13. Virtua Racing 12. Banjo-Kazooie 11. Mario Party 10. International Superstar Soccer Deluxe 9. Street Fighter II Turbo 8. Ocarina of Time 7. 1080 Snowboarding 6. Blast Corps 5. Dance Dance Revolution 4. Metal Gear Solid 3. Secret of Mana 2. Super Mario World 1. Link to the Past
  15. Absolutely loving my time with this so far. I've dabbled a little in Novice but found the lack of purple neutered the game a bit so went back to Original. But will definitely give Novice Ultra a go as Marlew suggested above. Is the leaderboard option greyed out because they need to turn it on or do I have to unlock it or something?
