Well I think Asphalt is great. Can't all like the same thing. Been playing a lot of multiplayer and its a really good laugh. 

 

I am under lots of medical attention to be fair but I didn't equate it to the switch 

 

I'm a fan too - i think the price point helped a lot, but there are worse racers on the switch, and they actually cost money.

On this topic, what actually IS the best arcade racer on Switch?

 

I want one, but don't know if any of them are any good. What's Rise: Race the Future like for example - that's on sale at £12 at the mo - any good?

 

Why the fuck haven't NAMCO pushed a RIIIIDDDGGGEEEE RACCCEEEERRRRR out yet :mad:

Rise: Race the Future, the best arcade racer on the Switch that doesn't have '8 Deluxe' in it's title, is on sale for two weeks. £12.80 which is a ridiculous bargain.

 

I've already written far too much in the games own thread so tl,dr: it's flawed (tiny dev team with no budget) but has an amazingly satisfying and deep handling model and some of the best track design I've ever seen. Buy! Buy! Buy!

Yep, recently bought Rise and been playing it quite a bit. Gotta have bumper cam to make the handling feel right - but great racer for 12 quid. Thanks DukeofEarlsfield for a number of recommendations in threads.

I started Celeste yesterday. It's one of those games where you realise a few minutes in that you're playing a masterpiece.

Just finished Celeste. Admittedly I'm very late to this party, but it really is incredible. You continually face sections that you initially have no idea how you'll ever pass, and then five minutes later you're nailing them with ridiculous muscle memory dexterity. The balancing, mechanics and expanding difficulty/toolset are all perfectly judged.

 

Also, huge credit to the story, which works perfectly alongside the gameplay, each complementing and enhancing the other - I'm not sure I've ever seen a story so naturally embedded in a game. I especially loved the way the final level was actually easier, rather than harder as you'd expect, which also underlined and supported the narrative.

 

I'm blown away. 

 

Ps. 2,229 deaths. 

Agreed. The story works perfectly with the gameplay.

Tumblestone is currently £1.79 in the sale. It's sort of an inverted Bust-a-Move puzzler and is great fun for couch co-op. There's a demo for it, too. Recommended!

Whoever it was who recommended Heave Ho for local multiplayer was absolutely correct. Spent a few hours playing it last weekend with some old friends and it was hilarious, simple mechanics but great fun.

This [loving homage/rather blatant clone] of Locoroco was supposed to be out on the 31st Oct, saw it as a recommended purchase on a weekly eshop video and tweets that it's down to £2.69 (though it's only £4.50 full price).. But it doesn't seem to be on the store..?

Finished PictoQuest this weekend. 

Was really good, tore me away from Picross S, which I need to get back to now. 

The RPG elements were light enough to not mess up the Picross gameplay but made an enjoyable change to the formula.

Crack on, there's 3 mainline picrosses to get through.

I respect the right to charge prices I know a lot of people balk at for old games (I bought Grandia HD, the Mana Collection, picked up the Disney games etc) but that seems a particularly bold level to pitch Romancing Saga 3 at. And it's 20% off! I've always been intrigued by them but does it have any fanbase in the West at all?

Anyone bought Kunio Kun Melee Mach?  Might be called River City Melee or something on western stores?

Downloaded Yaga on a whim this morning when checking out new releases. Was sold by the trailer instantly.

 

Its charming as hell! I’ve already spent two hours with it.

Well, Kunio Kun Melee Mach is fun if you like the combat.  It's a bit like Smash Bros with Kunio Kun characters.  Not as good as River City Girls, but still fun.  Quite cheap on the eshop, although I imported the Korean version, which plays in English.

Looks a little like Jotun from the trailer which should be a good thing...but having bought that twice and still not finished I am reticent to get something that will be very similar.

LocoRoco is on the Switch!!!!

 

Spoiler

I mean.. it may as well be. This has to be the most unashamed 'homage' to another game I have seen. It is LocoRoco in all but skin. Even has a very similar music feel to it. 

 

 

 

Of course I'll buy it at some point.

They’re similar in so far as they’re both beautifully hand drawn and you wield an axe, but Yaga is filled with humour and life whereas I found Jotun to be quite a cold and lonely experience. I’ve not played much more of it yet so I don’t really know what I’m talking about, but it’s putting a smile on my face.

I don't suppose anyone has ever pre-ordered a Switch game from the Japanese eshop? What time do they generally unlock? 

 

I know on the UK store, some people say they unlock at midnight and others say it happens around 9am later that day. 

 

I actually live in Japan, so if Pokémon unlocks at midnight tonight Japanese time (i.e. in about 9and a half hours) I might go pick up a download code from 7/11 after work. 

 

If not, might just wait until tomorrow as I won't be able to play it before work on Friday anyway.

Trials Rising is down to £9.99 in this week's sale. This was supposed to be the one where they made it good again, right? Anyone played the Switch port?

Actual game is great. But the progression and World Map make it a chore to play unfortunately.

Hmmm, Spintires: MudRunner - American Wilds is on sale for £14. That's the lowest it has been I think, if that is of interest to anyone.

Thanks for the tip on this btw. Picked it up yesterday and had loads of fun with it last night. A steal at that price.

Aye, it's a good laugh. Couch multiplayer is the way to go - I haven't actually played the single. Had some mates over a few weeks back and this was by far the favourite. Puyo Tetris, Smash and Mario Kart hardly got a look in! The rubber-banding is pretty transparent, but it makes for some tense battles, and I think you can turn it off anyway. Things got pretty profane, pretty quickly, which is always a good sign.
