    Recommend me some Switch games!

    in Nintendo Discussion on 18 March 2019

    I'd like to underline the recommendations for Octopath, Xenoblade and Captain Toad but one of the great things about Switch is that you don't have to pay full price to get an amazing gaming experience. Of the shorter games that came over from PC do try Inside, Abzu and Gris which are wonderful little contained experiences that don't cost the earth and merit replaying. The best approach is to come...

    Sean Murray Teases New No Man's Sky Content

    I'd be surprised if it was coming to Switch but it would actually suit it very well so - if so - I'd be tempted to buy it again....

    Should The Political Discussion Board Remain?

    in Website Topics on 14 March 2019

    I don't like the idea of board reputation being linked to a debate about the Politics board: it seems to invite a situation where users could be “punished” for their political opinions in a way that would leak into other parts of their site use. Upvote/downvote systems are highly exploitable....

    Should The Political Discussion Board Remain?

    in Website Topics on 10 March 2019

    I think Gamersgate went a long way to show that whether or not we want politics in the videogame pseudo-community it's going to be there, having an effect, either way. Politically non-participatory minorities have typically been the ones that are most victimised by politicians, so it's as well to continue to have a place here for debate, whether it appears to be fruitful or not....

    Capcom Says They Might Consider Porting Devil May Cry 5 to Switch if Dragon's Dogma Sells Well

    in Nintendo Discussion on 09 March 2019

    I really enjoyed Dragons Dogma when I played it in 2014 but I'm not at all interested in Devil May Cry 5. What makes Capcom think that these two games command a similar fanbase?...

    Persona 5 S To Release This Fall?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 28 February 2019

    Update: 25m Players Now: Apex Legends Has 10 Million Player and 1 Million Concurrent Players

    in Gaming Discussion on 12 February 2019

    I never cottoned to Fortnite and just wasn't interested in PUBG. This one seems very good ... but although I've played many hours of it already they haven't got me to part with cash yet so it will be interesting to see how attractive I find the season pass. When I see some of the skills of other players I think that I may just fall through the skill floor after a couple more weeks....

    Civilization VI on Switch excedded sales target; Take Two plans more support for the Switch

    in Gaming Discussion on 07 February 2019

    Physical copies of this went out of the UK retail chain really quickly. I've been waiting to see them again before I buy ... I'm in no hurry to do so and I don't especially want this filling my memory card. The good news is that if they made some money they will support it with the major expansions....

    Would you kill baby Hitler?

    in Politics Discussion on 25 January 2019

    Consider some plausible consequences: no Hitler, no WW2, no nuclear weapons (or space travel), weak Germany, no checks to the westward expansion of the U.S.S.R. through Europe, no State of Israel, no checks to the expansion of U.S.S.R. influence through the Middle East, decline of U.S. power following the oil shock. And Stalinist Russia was no friend to its Jewish population so there's a...

    Digital Foundry: New Nintendo Switch: 6 Hardware Upgrades We Must See

    in Nintendo Discussion on 17 January 2019

    In my view people worry way too much about a Pro Switch. Sure, it would be nice to have XBox 1X specs on a handheld but there's always going to be a technical gap between a dedicated console and a handheld and that gap is smaller now than ever. Most of us are going use replaceable cards for storage anyway. (Sure, double storage space if you can do it essentially for free - more is better - but...

    Make a realistic January 2018 Direct

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 January 2019

    Some of these look like wishlists ... I can't see them giving dates or trailers for Animal Crossing, Metroid, Pokemon or Bayonetta since those will all be saved for later in the year. I think we'll get the next three months' NES games for Online announced. A feature on Yoshi. Something on Super Mario Bros. U: could there be DLC coming for that? Is it too early to announce the second DLC...

    Michael Pachter: "Switch is tracking to sell 13 million this year"

    in Nintendo Discussion on 05 January 2019

    Pachter actually has a lot of expertise: I feel that I've learned more from watching Pachter Factor on YouTube than I have from any other gaming channel. He seems like a nice guy as well, but his comments need a lot of contextualisation. For example, every year he predicts the release of the new Elder Scrolls game “because one year I'll be right”: it's not a serious prediction. Similarly he...

    A console made for girls. Would you buy it?

    in Gaming Discussion on 31 December 2018

    I'm not a girl so, no, I guess not, but I've noticed that a lot of games “aimed” at girls on, say, 3DS, appeared to be very unsophisticated, whereas girls who game want their games to be as good as the ones “aimed” at boys. Things like Animal Crossing or Tomodachi Life or Pokemon seem to have a universal appeal ... I'm not sure why you'd need a console targeted directly at one gender rather than...

    Best (Pre Nintendo Switch) Handheld Game of All Time?

    Shaunodon said: Sordel said: The right answer is Tetris. Looking back over the years, I'd also have to mention Bravely Default & Advance Wars. Persona 4 Golden is essentially a port from PS2 and therefore shouldn't count, great though it is.

    Amazon drops the price of the PS1 Classic...Are you MOVED to buy one?

    in Sony Discussion on 25 December 2018

    No, but not because of the problems with it. I bought the SNES classic, which was done well, and it's just clutter in my home, so. I think I'm done with micro consoles. I'd rather have retro games on consoles that I actually already use....

    VGC's Last 10 GotY Winners - Which is the Best?

    in Gaming Discussion on 24 December 2018

    Darwinianevolution said: Skyrim is still the best game of that list. Breath of the Wild is fantastic, but it loses steam at around the 100th hour, while I've gone passed 200h with Skyrim. I think I went past 200h in 2011 ... I must be past 1000h now. I voted for Skyrim but part of me was screaming that BotW was the better game so I'm happy with where the poll is. I'm staggered with...

    Which do you think is the better JRPG as a whole, Xenoblade 2 or Octopath?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 21 December 2018

    I finished XC2, then did some post-game and another quick run on NG+. That says a lot. Octopath I loved visually but I found that I hit the wall with it and I'm not certain that I'll go back ... I'll look for more from a sequel....

    Brexit

    in Politics Discussion on 15 December 2018

    At the General Election Labour and Conservatives both stood on a manifesto commitment to leave the EU. The party that stood on a commitment to Remain was the Lib Dems, who were wiped out. Now backbench MPs from the two major parties want to take back the promise on which they were elected to have a second referendum (which, as we all know, is only advocated by people who want to remain). So the...
