    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    Thank you all for this. It’s like a prison release!!!

    Without massive spoilers is it essential to complete the third trial at the colosseum? It is getting me angry and ragey beyond belief - to the point where I might start disliking the game.
  3. I agree on the mismatch from the editorial piece and then having percentages on the reviews. After all - what is the defining quality or calculation that puts a game at 89% to 90%? One percent in this case makes a massive difference to the impression of the game. I would be happy to not have scores.

    I’m not a Pokemon fan in the slightest. Looking at the trailer Pikachu looks more like a plush toy which has come to life a la toy story rather than an animal. Is this intentional?

    Why would it need to be physical release over digital? edit - unless you were meaning in case you want to trade it. Doh!

    Arghh.....the third trial in the colliseum is a bugger. I can’t leave it until it’s done!

    Waits for insertion of a deadpool pikachu meme..... it seems something along those lines already exists:

    Crikey...didn’t realise my comment would touch a nerve or be inflammatory. I was merely meaning that for a lot of people the addition of YouTube would not be that enticing. I don’t think I’ve ever picked up the switch and felt it needed anything like that. Each to their own of course but I still imagine that most people reach for their phones for YouTube etc. If you could stream games live then I could see it being a more enticing development. However, I can see that apps like Netflix could be useful when docked and viewed on TV. I’m not complaining but in my household my TV can already view most of the mainstream media apps. My Blu-ray player also does this, my phone can do this handheld and can also mirror on a TV, I have an Amazon Fire which does this in some form also. I have an old Chromecast knocking about somewhere too. This doesn’t include desktop or laptop PCs either. For me none of these devices are good for gaming though. Perhaps I am getting old - I don’t need any more devices to access media. All I need the Switch for are the games but I don’t begrudge any further functionality the Switch can offer.

    I take your point and I don’t think it is necessarily a bad thing but a lot of phone screen sizes are probably quite comparable in size (and not as bulky in comparison to the switch or a tablet).

    I dont understand what the big deal is with YouTube on consoles? I can’t remember the last time I used YouTube on anything other than a phone (or tablet I suppose).

    I really hope we get a SNES equivalent of this kind of thing. Pop N Twinbee is a game I had completely forgotten about until this post.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - December 7th

    Honest question - why is that pad potentially better for this game than the joycons or pro controller?

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    You know, I love this game. It’s punishing and taxing but usually by your own mistakes. For example I have just beaten This guy is relatively simple to dodge and hit. But the quick timing makes it very difficult (for me anyway) but not impossible. Perfect for obsessive one more go urges. However, something that is starting to annoy me is the use of foreground imagery which obscures enemies. The Hive seems particularly bad for it. In other areas such as Deepnest you get ambush attacks from certain creatures but they don’t just appear at your feet. In the hive I constantly get hit by stupid bee things who are just sat behind a foreground piece of decoration. It just feels like the game is taking cheap shots at me rather than sticking to its firm but fair platforming/combat “rules”. Still an an awesome game though.

    I think there is a skill that has to be found to get past them...I had yet to find it. Im now in the hive which is a fun area. The boss is quite tricky though and the journey back from the bench seems quite a way. In in terms of the endings am I correct in thinking that depending on when you “finish” it depends on the number of endings you can get? I don’t want to miss out on a good ending by holding off for too long.

    Why have I never played this with headphones on before?!? Bloody amazing even compared to a decent speaker set up. Just exploring Kingdoms Edge - the score there sounds very similar to Luke’s theme in StarWars.
