    When are you buying the PS5?

    in Sony Discussion on 11 October 2019

    Depends how they approach the release of games; backwards compatibility aside, the PS5 needs meaningful exclusive games to make me dive in. I had to wait almost three years to decide to get the PS4, which had a very unimpressive launch line-up of exclusives (Killzone and Knack I did play on a friend's console and they were very average) as well as frequent droughts and remakes and remasters for...

    Sakurai: "No way" future Smash Bros. games will have as many fighters as Ultimate

    in Nintendo Discussion on 13 September 2019

    It's hard to believe, even though granted the quantity of characters is overwhelming, that people would rather have less characters, in a day and age we're living in with micro-transactions and loot boxes. ...

    Daemon X Machina scores 75 on Opencritic and 71 on Metacritic

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 September 2019

    This game I was very interested in when I first saw it in June 2018, as I like hectic over the top stuff that's akin to PlatinumGames with the massive bosses and enemies, lots of action happening around you and so on. But, disregarding the score, there's simply too many games that have come out since then that I'm trying to get through right now as well as a lot of other stuff coming up this...

    Luigiís Mansion 3 will have an achievements-type feature

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 September 2019

    I don't mind this sort of stuff for the most part, but I do mind them when they're used as replacements for the game actually rewarding you with something, thus artificially and superficially extending the playtime meaninglessly. Like the Firefly medals in The Last of Us, or the silver medals in Sonic 06, which serve no purpose but to give you a useless achievement/trophy; if they gave us stuff...

    Favourite Nintendo hardware revision (so far)

    Favourite Nintendo hardware revision (so far)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 25 August 2019

    Has to be the DS Lite. It was so much sleeker, refined and tighter in design compared to the original DS; remember how big the latter was? And yet despite the smaller dimensions, the screens were not only brighter but the DS Lite has had much better battery life. ...

    Revisiting Breath of the Wild

    in Nintendo Discussion on 22 July 2019

    I've been reading through replies on this topic and I'd like to chime in; for those of you, how much of the distaste in Breath of the Wild is down to being so used to the same formula for almost 30 years? Is it (and I really don't like using this word) nostalgia fueling it? Is it the resistance to change? There's valid criticism for sure, but would you still be complaining if it was more of the...

    Recommend me some Switch games!

    in Nintendo Discussion on 17 March 2019

    Oh man, where do I start? The usual big ones in Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Splatoon 2 are the good bets; solid, polished, and fun while still being challenging (for most of them). Splatoon 2's DLC, the Octo-Expansion is very good and more challenging than the main game's single player story mode. For other exclusives, Bayonetta II is a great one;...

    Why do you keep playing a bad game?

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 January 2019

    I've never played it, but I want to play Sonic 06, just to experience how absolutely terrible it is! I've seen a lot of playthroughs of it and there's so many new glitches each time in each run that I want to not just experience how bad it is but how else I can screw up the game! ...

    To me, 2017 wasn't as amazing for the Switch looking back

    in Nintendo Discussion on 09 January 2019

    In fairness, you could say the same regarding the PS4's and Xbox One's first couple of years, which didn't have a lot of new stuff worth playing for the longest time and was also filled with so many ports/remasters....

    Vita hits 16m

    in Sales Discussion on 11 September 2018

    People comparing sales of older consoles to the more recent ones is like comparing apples and oranges in a way. The PS2 and DS was from such a different era for their time when there was none of the stuff that exists now or were new for the time; there was no smartphones or tablets at the time for the DS to compete with, so of course the 3DS was going to suffer somewhat in an era of smart...

    Update: Looks like Torna the Golden Country's physical version is a proper cartridge release after all

    in Nintendo Discussion on 09 September 2018

    I'm not so sure the site itself has got it right Look carefully on this link, which has the details of the game on Nintendo's online store: https://store.nintendo.co.uk/nintendo-switch-game/xenoblade-chronicles-2-torna-the-golden-country-art-print/11858493.html It is the physical game, WITH a download code for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Expansion Pass, the latter of which DOES need the...

    Fortnite Nintendo Switch (undocked), Galaxy S9+, iPhone X Graphics Comparison

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 August 2018

    Pemalite said: AHYL88 said: Well, how much did your phone cost? A Samsung Galaxy S9+ costs more than THREE times the price of a Switch. An article like this has already cropped up before, when the OP compared the Switch to an iPhone X of all things. Many people get a phone on a contract and ultimately in their eyes, pay nothing. Very true, but sadly a lot of...

    What trophies and achievements say about you!

    in Gaming Discussion on 29 July 2018

    I'm not against Achievements and Trophies, but they should NEVER be used as a replacement for the game actually rewarding you with something. Otherwise, they're pretty much just artificial and superficial ways to pad and extend a game out. I'd rather a game actually reward me with something meaningful like an unlockable for doing a certain thing; like do this on X difficulty and/or without...

    Opinion: Nintendo need a SWITCH+ MODEL ASAP!

    in Sales Discussion on 21 July 2018

    I don't think we need a revision yet considering how well it's doing still and the fact that bringing a new one out so soon is gonna piss people off and confuse the casual buyers. But it's hard to take your post seriously when you're comparing a Switch that costs £279 to an iPhone X that costs £1,000, which is over THREE TIMES the difference....

    Games that Completely Changed a Developer's Reputation

    in Gaming Discussion on 02 July 2018

    Sonic Team is one that sticks out to me the most; they've flip-flopped like twice and they had a ton to prove after leaving such a bad taste in peoples' mouths due to Sonic 06. Unleashed was definitely not perfect for obvious reasons, as well as unrefined with strange game design decisions like mapping the homing attack button separately from the jump button and Sonic being tricky to control...

    If you bought Crash N Sane Trilogy on Switch or Xbox One?

    in Gaming Discussion on 30 June 2018

    I like the challenge of these games, if only to sucker-punch people who think games like this are easy cos they think art style is cartoony and kid friendly. Never judge a game by its cover and this trilogy is no exception. It's the first time playing these games in like 20 years, having only played 1 and 3 on other peoples' consoles and not owned a Playstation at the time and couldn't find any...

    This Friday's Switch releases: Wolfenstein II and Crash N.Sane Trilogy, which you getting?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 27 June 2018

    Pre-ordered Crash. I want to get Wolfenstein, but trying to save up at the moment for that and for other stuff like Octopath, Lumines, and YS VIII. There's a lot more in my radar for the rest of this year, much like last year but I won't be able to afford all of them. :P...

    Is Octo Expansion worth it if you haven't liked Splatoon single player in the past?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 26 June 2018

    I'll do my best here; the Octo Expansion still has the odd challenges like the main single player campaign such as just heading for the goal or collecting X items to complete the stage. But they're often mixed up in a way where you have to think differently on how to tackle the stages (some force you to use only a main weapon, sub-weapon, special weapon, or no weapon at all). While other stages...
