    List of Games You've Beaten 2019

    in Gaming Discussion on 15 October 2019

    Just over a month from my last update. Finished the Black Eagles route on Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Astral Chain and Link's Awakening. Three brilliant games back to back. I'm currently using a Gamepass trial to play through Gears 5, and I also splurged in the recent eShop sale and bought Turok 2, Dragon Quest 3, Hellblade, Gorogoa and Transistor, so my Switch backlog is even bigger. I'm hoping...

    Nintendo's New Fit Game (Ring Fit Adventure™)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 September 2019

    I think this has a better shot than Labo. It exists at the intersection of stylish, family-friendly game that Nintendo do so well and the peripheral-driven exercise games of a decade ago - so my guess would be there's an existing market Nintendo can target with this to help it gain some traction and gain positive word of mouth. It looks like a good quality product, too, with an appealing visual...

    Nintendo Direct Announced September 4th 2019 @3pm PT/6pm ET

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 September 2019

    I thought that was pretty decent, but obviously not up there with the last 3 Directs. Feels like Nintendo are keeping their powder dry (announcements wise) for the Game Awards and then a January or February Direct. Return of Obra Dinn, Doom 64, more DLC fighters for Smash all nice little surprises. 2019 was already packed for me, so it's nice to have a few more bits and pieces like that, the...

    List of Games You've Beaten 2019

    in Gaming Discussion on 04 September 2019

    A month or so after my last update - not much progress in some senses, but Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 goes into the 'Finished' pile, as does Three Houses after a meaty 75 hour campaign with the Golden Deer House. Fire Emblem is my game of the year so far, but Astral Chain will give it a run for its money. I'm playing that and my second Three Houses campaign alternately, with Link's Awakening...

    Astral Chain Debuts at No.1 in the UK

    in Nintendo Discussion on 03 September 2019

    This isn't the "WAH NINTENDO'S SOFTWARE PRICING" thread, it's a thread about Astral Chain being number 1. Aren't there any mods around these days? People should stick to the thread topic. If you want to discuss Nintendo's software prices that's fine - just make a thread for it. On topic: I've really enjoyed Astral Chain so far so I hope it does well. Unit sales for number 1 in the UK last...

    Officially-licensed Overwatch themed carrying case listed for Switch (Overwatch for Switch leak?)

    melbye said: Gotta wonder if that means a Direct might be close Pretty much guaranteed to happen in the first two weeks of September. Between this, the new SKUs added to GameStop databases plus Doug Bowser attending the Gamestop Manager's Conference, and the filing for SNES controllers for the Switch all pointing to some new announcements being imminent. I've seen other rumours, like...

    Japan Sales Week 31, Jul 29 - Aug 04 2019

    in Sales Discussion on 07 August 2019

    Yeah, the Japanese market is going to be soft until September. The combination of Switch Lite, Zelda and especially Dragon Quest XI S should give things a significant boost. Three Houses' success in Japan is also difficult to gauge without knowing what the digital figures are - we're only going to have a good idea of that when Nintendo's next set of results come in at the end of October. ...

    Microsoft should put Halo on Switch

    in Gaming Discussion on 02 August 2019

    There have been rumblings that some version of Master Chief Collection is coming to Switch for months on Resetera - some of it based on a reliable source. As much of as a curveball as it may be, seeing Halo on Switch isn't super far-fetched at this point. ...

    Japan Sales Week 30, Jul 22 - 28 2019, Famitsu

    in Sales Discussion on 01 August 2019

    Looking at Nintendo's shipment figures for Super Mario Maker 2, it seems the voucher programme they're running is likely pushing digital sales in Japan - I've seen estimates that Super Mario Maker 2's first week sales were 33 to 40% digital. As others have pointed out, if Three Houses has a similar digital ratio, you're looking at a combined physical/digital first week of around 200,000....

    List of Games You've Beaten 2019

    in Gaming Discussion on 01 August 2019

    I haven't updated this since early May! Bolded are the new additions. Finished with Game of Thrones, BoxBoy and Final Fantasy 12. The latter took up most of my playing time for May and June - somewhere over the 60 hour mark. I've sank 20 hours into Mario Maker 2, 12 hours into Ultimate Alliance 3 and 13 hours in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Bought Friends of Ringo Ishikawa and Cadence of Hyrule and...

    What Do You Think to the Nintendo Switch Lite?

    in General Discussion on 13 July 2019

    Good idea, especially for the Japanese and North American markets. I have no personal interest in it because I like having the option of playing on the TV, but I still think Lite is a good idea and I expect it'll do well. ...

    Which of These PlatinumGames Fan Favourites Should Receive a Sequel?

    in General Discussion on 05 July 2019

    At first I was going to go for Vanquish, but the poll reminded me of the wonderful Infinite Saga - I'd love a sequel or remake of that. I'd like to see sequels to Vanquish and Wonderful 101 - I'm yet to play Nier: Automata, but I suspect I'll love that, too. ...

    Fire Emblem: Three Houses puts an end to Nintendo's DLC nonsense

    in Nintendo Discussion on 05 July 2019

    It's good to see the change, but I likely won't buy the expansion pass until the content is all released. Bar the Conquest and Revelations campaigns for Fates, I've avoided buying any Fire Emblem DLC precisely because of Nintendo's pricing strategy - so I'm glad to see this change. Hopefully these extras turn out well. ...
