  1. Splatoon 2

    Havent played much of this game for a good few months but upon seeing the direct last week I had an urge to pick this up again. In the normal online game I've been impressed with how quickly I got back into it and how little time you have to play it to feel satisfied. Just a couple of matches is all that's needed to scratch the itch. Even better is, apart from the above posters pretty rare problem, it's generally family friendly. Nintendo really do know how to make games all inclusive. This, along with Mario Kart, is what makes Nintendo great. I can play it, I can let my son play it (as long as he doesn't lose!!) I and everyone has crazy fun.
  2. Bayonetta 1 & 2 - Nintendo's Witch

    I know what you mean. My playing time has to be reserved to when my son is in bed as well as having the energy after a hard day's graft (yes I'd love an easy job). I'm playing the long game with these though and savouring every moment. Normally I like to rinse a game before buying another, as to not create a pile of shame, but in this circumstance if I have to buy Labo and Dk tropical freeze and whatever else somewhat more family friendly comes along, then so be it. But I will get great at these games!

    I guess it went badly...
  4. Bayonetta 1 & 2 - Nintendo's Witch

    Just completed chapter 4 of Bayo 1. Good god. Was I sweating. I really do need plenty more practice at this game to get good but it's so much fun trying. I'd love for my son to see this but I am somewhat reticent in allowing him to see some of the more graphic scenes in this game. Shame really cos I think he would truly enjoy watching me destroy angels that look like demons. And that God damn music...
  5. Bayonetta 1 & 2 - Nintendo's Witch

    I reckon im really getting the hang of this now. I've got my first pure platinum medal that felt like it was down to skill rather than just mashing buttons and hoping. I'm not able to play a huge amount on this so I've only done chapter 1 so far but I know I want to go back and improve my previous scores. I do now understand why people love it and how the outrageousness fits in with the whole game. Just a shame I can't play it with the kid as he'd bloomin love it.
  6. Bayonetta 1 & 2 - Nintendo's Witch

    Phew... Well this is a bit exciting isn't it. It takes a bit getting used to the combo system and the controls but there's so much going on and it certainly is invigorating playing. I think I'm going to invest in a pro controller though. The dinky joy cons feel a bit clicky and flimsy for playing a riotous game like this. Not sure the wife enjoyed it all that much. Shes just fallen asleep on the sofa next to me. Oh well. Never mind.
  7. Bayonetta 1 & 2 - Nintendo's Witch

    I don't know when I'm going to get time to play these games but someone in the switch megathread told me it was better than a load of other games I've not played. I've ummed and ahhed all week over it. How will I keep it away from my child? How do I explain the ridiculous clothing and sexuality to my wife? Nah, il never get time for this even if everywhere says it's amazing. So I've just got up. Checked the Argos website. £40.99 shorter later. Appears I've bought it now. I will pick it up after work. In stock in argos click and collect for £40.99. Argos is always a good bet for games as the in store copies are only available on the day of release but are put on the website before the store opens and are separate from the preorder for delivery ones. So to summarise. I've bought Bayonetta. It's going to be great!
  8. Nintendo Switch

    I need to be persuaded as to why I should buy this game as I will only be able to play it when the child has gone to bed. Why does it score so highly? Usually games that have this kind of gratuity are rubbish. Why is Bayonetta great? Sell it to me
  9. Nintendo Switch

    This Bayonetta game looks like something I would enjoy in principle but am I right in thinking it wouldn't be the most appropriate thing for a five year old to be witnessing. Please bear in mind that he's slowly ploughing his way through zelda and is not fazed by the challenges involved within it.
  10. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Fantastic stuff! The art direction in this game is wonderful. Such beauty from a relatively low powered device. I do have a couple of other questions. Im currently getting close to filling up my heroes path. What happens after it does? Does it just stop tracking me or does it forget the earliest bits and carry on. Also what's the strongest weapon you've found? Yesterday I happened upon a lovely moblin with a weapon that when it hit me took away 15 hearts in one swipe. Once this happened both my son and myself knew we had to get this weapon. Once destroyed it turned out to be a Royal Guards Claymore with a massive attack up on it making it a total of 110. We were amazed, our faces beamed. Looking at each othe, in unison, we both went "Ooh! We'll have that!" I've not had anything else above 100 yet. I've not dared use this weapon yet.
  11. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    I love this game so much. I've put 200 hours into it myself. My wife, a complete non gamer watched me play it for most of those hours, started her own account and is now up to 90 hours play time in about 3 months. I have been letting my son play using my profile and saving it beforehand so he can go around using all my bomb arrows and my precious lynel gear without a care. As the Christmas holidays came around, my 5 year old pestered my wife into making him his own Zelda profile so he could play it from the beginning. He's now got 3 towers and about 10 shrines. Mostly on his own. Just now as we were putting him to bed he asked me to put on some calming music. The sheikah tower music. I know I have rambled on but how will we cope after this game. Everything about it, the vistas, the surprises and especially the music evokes such wonderful memories. Opening towers, seeing all those orange glows in the distance and wondering what is out there. Then finding, after 200 hours, something completely new, just there. I am so in awe of the people who made this game. I can barely put it into words.
  12. Super Mario Odyssey - ALL CAPS

    @JLMthat is exactly how I felt x 100 cos my 5 year old son was pulling moves just like Mario, dancing along, to a beautiful homage to Nintendo history. I dont think I have ever been so happy playing a video game. Really over the moon happy. This is why it's my game of the year... Maybe my game of the forever. I've loved Zelda for its technical prowess and complete ability to absorb me in its world but this game has made me almost... Almost cry with joy. So truly wonderful. I can't think of anything else that's done that apart from Mario 64 and Mario World.
  13. Im sat in a muddy car park waiting for my loved one to complete a horse exam thing. If I'd had ordered from Simply I might have got it already and happily playing Odyssey right now in this muddy car park. Unfortunately for me I ordered from Amazon, digital. So I'm having to play Zelda instead. Flipping Zelda. Only the best game ever as voted for by Rllmuk. Woe is me! Life's really shit sometimes.
  14. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    What is so fantastic about this game is that even after all this time of it being available I am still amazed by what it can do. That clip above is testament to that. My wife. Who really doesn't play proper video games is in love with this. It's going to be a tough battle between me and her over the switch when she wants to play Zelda and I want to have a go on Mario. This game is that damn good.
  15. Super Mario Odyssey - ALL CAPS

    I desperately want this game but I just know that if Id have ordered it from simply then my week off would be even less productive than it is going to be Friday onwards. So I have forced myself to wait til Friday so I can get some proper jobs done before I sit down for 3 days and do nothing but play mario. Curse you real world.
