Coffee Talk is fantastic. I played on PS4, but imagine the Switch version is just as good. http://www.mentalhealthgaming.com/coffee-talk-mhg-review/

 

Also, one of our team just reviewed Arcade Spirits and really liked it. http://www.mentalhealthgaming.com/arcade-spirits-review/


funnily enough the reason I asked about Visual Novels was because I just played the Demo of Coffee Talk and I enjoyed it so much I’ve pre ordered this -

While it's a great game, the Switch version is massively fucked. It crashes my Switch every 5 minutes or so and looking online it seems that it's happening with all copies. 

 

The game itself is great, just play it elsewhere. 

It's best suited to phones. It works perfect there.

Can anyone recommend me the best visual novels available on the Switch please? I’ve never really played gone, bar The Park which I loved 

I enjoyed Eliza a great deal if you haven't played it (Edge 9/10)

Burnout Paradise is out on the 19th of June for £44.99. Ooooof! Definitely waiting for a sale to pick that up.

 

Who is dumb enough, and lives in a big enough bubble to think this is in any way a good idea? This is a Trump-level of stupid.

Indeed £25-£30 is the right price point. 

However this is designed for someone at EA to prove a point that their games aren't right for the Switch and that they won't sell.

£25 to £30 is still too much for a 2 year old port of a 12 year old game.

 

It does include all the DLC as well, so have to take that into account l guess. How much does that add up to on other platforms (rather than just the base game cost)?

 

It's, obviously, a mental price that's going to pretty much kill it until it's on sale - I think £25 would have been reasonable though (and I bet when it hits that in a sale sometime it might sell a few more).

It's all included in the remake version, so whatever the PS4 and Xbox One ones retail for.

 

I get that this shit just doesn't walk to a new platform on it's own, but whatever we can theoretically price this game at making it £44.99 is just sending it out to die, so the effort won't have been worth it anyway.

It’s £10 for everything in total on PSN, but has been less than that. And was free on PS+.

Bang on.

 

EA are just odd with all this - I mean surely a version of, say, Plants vs Zombies or Madden would have done well, and been easy to port over from a previous gen. It just feels like easy money left on the table that they are justifying internally with this pricing nonsense.

It boggles the mind, that with the worldwide, record breaking success of Animal Crossing, EA haven't ported The Sims over to the Switch. It would do gangbusters.

The Sims is very much a PC game, though. The PS4 version of Sims 4 is horrible and I doubt they'd be able to make it any better on the Switch.

I'd gladly take an NHL game. Even a retro styled one. Can't see it happening though. 

 

Based on the last few, I'd only accept a 94 styled one.

The other day I fancied some tower defence and enjoyed the demo of Xmorph defense but didn't feel like paying the full 18 quid. Today it's 4.50 so I have to have it. 

 

From the demo it seems really cool, tower defence crossed with a shmup.

I hope lots of people buy Gals Fighters as its ace and hopefully if they do, SNK will do some more Neo Geo pocket games on the Switch. The Emulation and options are great.


I hadn’t realised that the NGPC version of samurai shodown was available as a gift for people who ordered the new version of SS.

Picked it up yesterday, maybe worth a cross-post in the fighting games thread to raise awareness! 

 

Really impressed with the emulation and customisation options available - I've got my charcoal black NGPC overlay just like old times. And I love the zoomed in, filtered look of the chunky sprites. 

 

And it plays a mean fighting game! Responsive and great fun, with everyone playing just like they do in their arcade counterpart games. I never played it back in the day, but here's hoping this fuels further NGPC emulation on the system.

 

Match of the Millennium next please. :hat:

Yes, I think they did a real good job with those options , the different handheld surrounds is a nice touch, it even has a slim version. 

It looks so nice on the Switch screen, the only thing that is missing is the amazing clicky stick.

28th March - Itta. Switch, about 4 hours.

 

I reviewed it for MHG here http://www.mentalhealthgaming.com/itta-review/?fbclid=IwAR3sgqtQa-EBlML0W8jCzpDYoxmGahAznQx94svig21gYtbsUMpvy2GkAZA

 

TL;DR - It's short, but intriguing. The gameplay seems a bit incidental, like the developers wanted to tell the story more than make the game. I enjoyed it, mind.

 

 

Meant to share this in here as well as the finished games thread.
