Does anyone have the link to that website that shows games on sale and their review scores? I think it was PSN specific, but then expanded to cover Switch as well? Ta. 

 

Trawling through pages of sale games and trying to work out if they are shovelware or mobile ports is a chore...


eshop prices does that now:

Deku Deals has metacritic scores.

Got NBA 2K20 for free essentially with gold points, so even if it is turd I don't feel short changed. 

I paid about £1.50 for it. It must be worth that!

My son is playing the demo of Moving Out and laughing his head off.  Has anyone bought the full game and can give me their thoughts on it?  It looks a bit like Overcooked which was fun but you seemed to hit a wall if you were only 1/2 players (or that was just us and we're a bit shit!)

 

In other news, AC is lovely and will probably cost me a Switch Lite or two as my wife & daughter are now addicted!  They've been on it so much that I've only just be able to upgrade from a Tent to a House.

I was thinking of getting 51 Worldwide Classics as a way to finally learn how to play Mahjong. How different is Riichi Mahjong to ‘regular’ (or to be more specific, Chinese) Mahjong.

 

I don’t want to learn how to play it and then end up being laughed out the room (and fleeced of all my money) if I actually play it against my friends.

Theres not really a wrong way, only the south area is blocked off; north, west and east are all open to you so you could try going a different direction and see if you fare better.

I started again on easy mode, and got on better. Also upgraded dash so I could run around like a lunatic. 2 bosses down now, still not really sure what's going on. I understand some people love this game, but I can't help but feel that it could be so much more, if it was just more generous. With the timing of dash chaining as well as with health (a lot of people reference Dark Souls as 'difficult game you learn from', but forget that Dark Souls actually started relatively gently, heavily nudged you in the right direction, and most importantly restarted you with full health and estus packs after each death (by the time curse came around the game already had hooks in you).

I’ve got 70 hours on it and I’ve barely scratched it. It’s got its quirks, but it’s fairly solid - it’s relatively easy to ignore the shitty “neighbourhood” stuff and just play a game of basketball.

Any good guides out there for learning best way to play? Been ages  since the last time. 

I've set play calling to full auto, with full play art. I also set shooting to real player %. But need a refresher on the high percentage areas for shooting and best ways to defend.

Never mind best - how do you defend? Any time I press a button I seem to foul. My only strategy has been to try not to do anything.

 

Close enough. You don't want to be stealing all the time. Stand off and try to force plays into low percentage areas. Or wait for them to shoot and block. You want to mak shooting as hard as possible, not just stop the chance to shoot. Do that each and every time and they get easier shots. 

 

One thing I learned was to control one player in defence and stick to their role. Don't always get touch tight either, as you don't get the time to react when they make a move.

I’ve had a lot of fun with it in both multi and single player modes. A few frustrations — odd clipping and obscure goals and the like — but I’m pretty happy with it. Video thoughts below.

If you do find any good beginners guides please let me know... I am pretty clueless. I did get one great moment where there were seconds left on the clock and I got a steal and chance to score to tie it up. The crowd went crazy. Needless to say I missed the easy shot and lost. Atmosphere is really well done. Handheld is where it's at.

I downloaded NBA2K also, as it was next to nothing.  Did not expect it to be so ridiculously massive in size.  What kind of compression technology are these guys using?

 

I had to archive 4 games in order to fit it on my MicroSD.  Be warned.

I know not a lot about basketball but as I understand the game, generally when people attack they score so what Bradigor says makes perfect sense, try and force them into an area where, when the shot clock gets low, they're going to have to take a punt from and make them miss more than you do.

 

(I've not gone mad right? Basketball has a shot clock?)

You are correct. It's the player selection that seems weird to me. Also I'll be doing what I think is a reasonable job and then they just run past me and dunk it in to an unguarded basket. Having fun though.

What the Golf is brilliant, probably the best thing on Apple Arcade.

 

EDIT: Very much a touch screen game though - can’t imagine what it would be like with controllers.

It’s much better with touchscreen. I began playing it on Apple TV using my PS4 pad and enjoyed it plenty enough, but when I started playing it on my iPhone it was even better. I loved having to rotate the phone around in order to change it from landscape to portrait depending on what was needing done. Very clever.

 

And obviously the aiming and power gauge are a lot more fun with the tactility of touchscreen as opposed to doing the same with sticks.

Yes, it’s such a tactile little game, pinging the ball never gets old. Presumably you could play it that way on the Switch as an option...I don’t imagine the Switch screen is nice to use by a long chalk, mind.

Interesting. I can’t help but feel they’re focusing on the wrong things though. The game already looks great and has the most solid frame rate on the switch. And it really didn’t need that update to let you fiddle with the car settings.

 

What it needs is a decent online time trial mode, more areas, more game modes, more cars etc.

 

Maybe some of those will be in this update as well. Fingers crossed.

Great update on the SNES Online app thing. First time I’ve played Panel de Pon and I immediately like it and also my first dabble with the original Wild Guns which is just as good as I remember the Reloaded version I paid too much for being. No playable dog but still solid.
