Nah, the Switch is Mansun - much smaller and quirkier.

 

Switch relies even more on slightly recast old IP, is far too successful, and has the occasional quirk rather than being all quirk - so it's not really Mansun.

 

Coldplay?

which console manufacturer is Blur and which is Oasis during this debate, and whom, God tell, are Ocean Colour Scene? 


Stadia is definitely Ocean Colour Scene. I guess Oasis are Sony? People are embarrassed to say they like them except a small minority but they sell a lot to the mass market. Xbox are Blur, because they have more devoted fans with actual arguments as to why they’re good, but it doesn’t always connect with a wider audience. Nintendo are The Beatles, because they invented all this stuff.

Xbox == Blur, but less inventive.

 

What really sells the comparison is that they spent their second album (Modern Life is Rubbish) buying up big UK developers, and for their fourth album (13), they've decided to go big on American RPG makers who specialise in Pavement textures while releasing a second song that's small and sweet.

 

Woo Hoo.

You wash your filthy mouth out.

 

The Switch is definitely not Coldplay in that it has a catalogue of top quality releases that you can bear to play for more than two minutes before wishing you were deaf.

Switch is Pulp btw 

 

Exactly this.

 

 

 

 

Also, who needs news, comparing new consoles to Brit pop bands is infinitely superior to talking about the bloody price.  Again. :facepalm:

The Auteurs was really just one guy, who was a bit of a dick. Is that Sega? Probably.

Luke Haines, often credited with inventing ‘Brit.Pop’ (he didn’t) - absolutely not a dick.

So if Bugsnax is “Country House”, what is “Roll with it”?

Switch is Pulp btw 


I mean we all know Blur are better than oasis and Pulp are better than both...

 

Yeah, you nailed it!
