    Did anyone mention that PC Game Supply promotion is back on - runs until 4:00pm BST, 30 per cent off $10 eShop card: http://www.pcgamesupply.com/special_promotion/
  2. You gonna buy it or download the torrent?
  3. You can't buy it from the developer website as far as I can see: http://www.darkwoodgame.com/ I don't know, it feels like such a weird thing to say at this stage - given you can't buy it direct, there are no journalist or industry keys, for example, on G2A (https://www.g2a.com/?search=darkwood), it seems really strange to push that angle given it's unlikely.
  4. How can there be key re-sellers for a digital-only title that hasn't been in a bundle yet?

    Sonic Mania

    Okay, to clarify: Some things you can hit and then you lose rings, other times you can be hit by a moving platform and die instantly. That's not consistent, and not fair. On occasions I've been genuinely confused about which way to travel, and in some instances been sent back the way I came if I fluffed a jump. Given the strict time pressures, this also felt unfair. Re: inertia - some sections require such precise leaping across moving platforms that failing doesn't feel all entirely down to limited skills. In fact it felt unfair. Thanks for patronising me re: checkpoints - of course I know they are. What I meant was if you *run out of lives* in Act 2 - at the boss, let's say - it doesn't feel fair having to repeat Act One. And I am a fan of risk/reward - The Swindle is one of my favourite games - but the time limit should stop as soon as you hit the boss. The game allowing you to attempt a boss but then run out of time during it doesn't feel fair. I wasn't trying to spoil anyone's enjoyment of the game, and certainly did not call anyone wrong for doing so - I am sad it's not for me as you all seem to be having a blast. But please feel free to correct my opinion point by point.

    Sonic Mania

    I just can't get on with it. Antiquated mechanics, insta death, confusing levels, awful inertia, having to replay act one if you die in act two, fucking timers which end mid boss battle. Never had a Mega Drive so clearly I'm coming to it cold but I genuinely almost slung my Switch across a train carriage this morning. Such a shame because you all sound like you're having a blast.
  7. Next Splatfest is the first weekend in September: Flight or Invisibility? Flight, obviously.

    If this hasn't resolved itself, try flipping the USB C lead round. I've had this issue before and despite the fact it shouldn't make a difference, it seemed to fix it
  9. This looks absolutely wonderful. Have you had any conversations with Apple / Google? Send them early builds if you know anyone there. If not, PM me and I'll see if I can introduce you to the Apple guys.
  10. I think I may keep my sword at 40 then in that case.
  11. WHAT TIME IS THE DLC GOING TO BE AVAILABLE?

    Nintendo Switch

    My left Joycon will now pop out of the Switch during play - clearly the pressure of tense bouts of ARMS has taken its toll. Any idea how I can tighten it back up? Have tried my wife's Joycon and that's pretty solid so it's clearly an issue with the mechanism rather than the rails. Bloody annoying, though.

    ARMS

    Update: I appear to have got worse at it again.

    ARMS

    Feel like I'm beginning to find my feet* now. Have finished Level 4 GP with Mummy and Kid Cobra and progressed to Level 2 ranked. Am beginning to unlock more ARMS - (potentially stupid question alert) how do you know whether they are light/normal/heavy? * Arms.

    ARMS

    I am very bad at this game. Loving it, though.
  16. Was looking forward to playing this around two sets of friends' houses this weekend but we were plagued by connection errorsors in wireless multiplayer. Anyone else experienced this? More importantly, has anyone found a way of reducing them?

    It's a bit of a hassle to pull it out from behind the TV to be honest, but thanks for the advice.
  18. The random enemies thing is an appalling design decision.

    Nintendo Switch

    I'd be interested to hear if anyone's managed to find a way around this - had the same problem when I took the Switch on holiday.

    Nintendo Switch

    LEGO City takes maybe a couple of minutes to get from the Switch laucher to playing around - and from then on it's not too bad. A few frame rate issues here and there, and some fiddly platforming at points, but overall very playable. 80k sales for Blaster Master is a very strong start.
  21. A have a quick question re: one of the Sheikah Slate upgrades:

    I had this - the green light would blink on and off briefly and that was it. Do you have another TV? I moved my Switch Dock to the spare and plugged that in and it worked straight away. Then pulled it back to the original TV and it was fine.
  23. Argos Twitter support now saying "they *try* to deliver on launch day but can't guarantee it". What an utter joke. Three days out and it looks like I'm not getting one.
  24. Haha literally just received a text from Argos saying Good News 1-2 Switch is being dispatched. Nothing about the Switch order itself. Epic trolling.
