    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - December 7th

    I’m trying to trigger muscle memory of 15 year old me by sticking with Fox. It’s sort of working but of course the buttons feel different. He will always be my fave.

    Part of me is a bit scared to switch it on - it sounds equally overwhelming and amazing!

    This thread was doing just fine until you made a pointless inflammatory comment that had absolutely no contextual basis in the discussion. Own that at least.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - December 7th

    Also in fairness to Zok, I have to admit I didn't expect to find an entirely unnecessary dig about women's salaries nestled in the Smash Bros thread of all places.
  6. No idea! I’ve not fired it up yet. But for £25 I felt it was worth a punt. I may get a couple of weapon sets or something. I don’t care, I have an Arwing The digital base back contains a lot more stuff but I’m not sure how much that costs as not had a chance to check.
  7. Nope it's all available digitally. I've not checked myself yet but apparently there's a "Digital Pack" of all the extra stuff, or buying things individually. The individual price of stuff on the store is apparently half that of the physical so, at the moment, Smyths' price for physical packs is the same as the digital pricing. Hope that makes sense. I looked it all up as I wasn't sure if I should buy a couple of guns or something whilst there, but I don't feel the need to have the physical bits. Except the Arwing, obvs.
  8. I was in Smyths this morning to pickup my Smash Bros order and THAT SONG was playing out of their little demo station for Starlink. I bought Starlink as it’s only £25. I’m such a sucker for Starfox. No extra toys coz I don’t know what I want or need. I don’t need anything - I have an Arwing.

    Yeah I think I got caught up in the hype as it seemed it may be quite hard to get hold of. All the reports coming in here make it sound genuinely epic though, sounds like there's so much depth in there...

    So I've got this pre-ordered at Smyths ready for collection today... I do go and get it today right, rather than wait for Christmas or something? I have already asked for a couple of other games for Christmas...
  11. I was all set to post that you have no soul etc, but then you wrote that
  12. We were really left to it, which was nice. I guess the kids we played games with, we also played outside with, so to my mum it must have seemed a good balance. We must’ve self regulated to an extent, I have a lot of memories of both being glued to games all day and being outside climbing trees and exploring and stuff. I really think playing games gave me an awful lot as a kid that I took into my life as a grown up. It’s not a coincidence I’m in a very technical job, or use good spatial awareness, problem solving etc. The ability to see the big picture... I was playing Final Fantasy 7 when I was 12 years old, the intricacy of the systems in that with materia etc all counts for something. I guess that’s the thing really - if kids aren’t playing games, what would they do instead? This is why some of my work colleagues baffle me - they act like video games are the work of the devil but happily let kids watch as much TV as they want. To my mind, at least games are interactive and are involving more brain power than just watching moving pictures.

    The Lion King (Live Action)

    Something that is bugging me about this is the music. I mean, I love the music. Circle of Life is epic. But are we just going to get the same version on this film, so it's basically the same intro except realised in 3D instead of 2D? I assume the character-led songs will be different... Also, I've seen The Lion King musical as well, and whilst it is amazing you are watching it knowing every single line that'll come (although Circle of Life in the musical is without doubt the "ultimate" rendition). It bothered my brother somewhat. So are we getting the same script a third time over on a different format, even with some of the same voices (don't get me wrong, anyone but James Earl Jones as Mufasa would just be wrong)? At least with Beauty and the Beast, you did get something new from it, even if it was Emma Watson's auto-tuned wailing. I'll still love it, don't worry
  14. I’m not sure you can always get the circle to be green either? Rarer Pokemon seem to have tougher circles. When my Chansey spawned, the circle was a dark orange and a berry took it down to yellow.

    Bit late to the party but I've just pre ordered Smash from Smyths as there's one near me, an extra £5 off to collect in store
