    Loved what you did with that bastard ponce de leon there in your sig xP

    Ponce De Freon! He is the remixed version of the boss, so it's the version where you have a preset character who can only get hit 4 times at most and you always have the set abilities and gear to damage him.

    Thanks though, loved that game and loved putting the time into perfecting that boss.

    Rogue Legacy is hard as nails, it should have a bit more of health recovery on it xP

    on 12 May 2017

    It was hard as the get, but the thing about was... it was fair, almost all instances where I got killed in Rogue legacy I figured I could have avoided it happening by playing better, I love a game like that, where you can put in more time and nail the mechanics to the point where you can dodge everything it throws at you.

    Lots of games are hard, but few are fair about it I find.

    Are we friends on Switch?

    found you on the friend codes thing and added some people :) no one seems to bother adding others from there. ...

    Or just me, sad times.

    Having fun with MK8? It's kind of like deja vu for me but it must be pretty awesome for a first timer :)

    Haven't seen you around as much lately. Sayin' Hi.

    Yeah... I've felt that myself a bit too Coktoe, ever since I've split with the wife I've actually been spending a lot less time at the PC doing work and more time out in the world enjoying myself and dating.

    It's fucking weird... I thought it would be the end of the world... it has actually been one of the more liberating things I've had happen to me, realizing pretty soon after the break up that while I fucking hate the way it happened, I'm very much able to take care of and enjoy myself more now.

    Also 125 hours into Zelda on the switch.. so there is also the fact that I've been lost on a console which doesn't have a net browser hahaha.

    Appreciate my absence being noted though :) thanks for the message and hope all is well and ye been busy keeping the flaming weasels at bay :D

    That's great to hear man. Now that you mention what you've been up to, I haven't seen you on PSN much either.

    on 13 April 2017

    I'm now fairly certain that this is the best piece of gaming software I've played... and that is putting it over 2 years of PLAYTIME in world of warcraft.

    Just sheer joy to play, I've encountered 1 broken piece of texture in over 120 hours of exploration and just yeah... fun.

    It was worth the entry price of the Switch alone just for how good Breath of the Wild is.

    on 13 April 2017

    I don't watch many video game videos, but have watched BOTW for around an hour, It looks awesome for sure. It's probably not in the cards for me, but I would like to try it some day.

    How are you liking Zelda?

    I'm sorry it has taken me a while to reply to this... but honestly I think Zelda and by extension the Switch are some of the best parts of gaming I've experienced in 30 years.

    Since buying the Switch and Zelda I think my Vita has been on... maybe twice and my PS4 has actually not been used at all since, with my job involving a lot of work at PC's, moving around and basically a lot of short breaks where I get to play, the combination of the 2 things is just perfection for me.

    The way Zelda allows you to just go and do what you want when you want... the game literally never forces you to do anything in particular.. and because of that, it inspires me to want to do everything.

    So far I have yet to go and seek out Impa (basically the first quest off the plateau) but I'm 40 hours of exploring down... I've completed over 30 shrines, activated half the Towers in Hyrule and just... been loving every minute of it, the shrine system is great for me too, if I have 10 minutes to play I can focus on either just getting to a shrine and then the next time I have I can go in and complete the shrine.

    System is beautiful too, just have Zelda, Fast RMX and the demos of Snipperclips and Splatoon but wow... I am impressed so far, from the quirky fun of Snipperclips to the beautiful visuals that Fast RMX offers both as a handheld and on the big screen.

    I put it like this... GTAV I purchased for the PS4 for 30e when the switch came out... I played it less than 20 mins, putting the cost per hour at 90e per hour of game, the Switch so far I've spent 415 euros on have almost 50 hours in total of playtime on the system so weirdly it's working out at around 8e per hour of actual entertainment.. shockingly low compared to just buying games on the PS4 that I find myself playing just the beginning of but can't commit the time to sit at the TV and play through.

    Here is hoping for a long and fruitful life for the Switch!

    Bought a Switch seeing that I think 400 is a fair price to play Breath of the Wild, if I happen to get any other piece of software I'll be chuffed but for that title alone the Switches asking price just wasn't going to hold me back.



    Also the first thing I had to do when I got it out of the box was taste the cart, god fucking damn that tastes horrible. But awesome work Nintendo thinking of such a unique way to make people fear pre owned games... would you like a pre licked copy of Zelda?

    Bruhh, I got a Wii U for 200 euro 3 years ago and now playin botw as well, looks amazing

    on 11 March 2017

    Was playing it today for about 3 hours sitting at the side of a local canal enjoying the sun outside and the beautiful BOTW, I guess... you could do that with a generator as long as you had the Wii-U console sat next to you. But... really I think the Switch is well worth the asking price.

    As long as a handful of software comes to it, I'll be happy with my early adoption of it.

    on 11 March 2017

    I'll be getting the switch eventually, probably by next year when games like Mario Odyssey and Xenoblade 2 are out, but it'd be crazy to buy one now just to play 1 game I already have a console for.

    on 12 March 2017

    True enough but I could go into my logic for buying it at launch if you wanted, it's not the longest of tales.

    Basically myself and a rather large number of mates of mine all did not buy a Wii-U at launch, at the point where that platform had to be honest... really great Third party support, Batman, Mass Effect, Tekken, Assassins Creed, etc, but none of us both it then, As Nintendo started to produce some actual decent reasons to buy a Wii-U in the first party line a couple of friends started to buy the system, but by the time everyone of them (bar myself) had bought it, the 3rd party support had effectively dried up completely and all that remained was the (rather great) first party stuff.

    Now with the Switch I didn't want that situation to happen again, so from the get go All of us baring 1 have picked up the machine with Zelda at launch to show support for it from the start sort of in a "I'll do my part" to support it and then put faith that games will come later, rather than be a part of the group of people who hopes that others buy it and hopes it becomes a success on the backs of those willing to put faith in Nintendo to deliver.

    It cost me €420 so far and as someone who has never owned a Wii-U I'm looking forwards to getting my hands on Mario Kart 8 deluxe next month and hopefully any other ports of games from the system I skipped which come to the Switch. But yeah... you could be right, it would be nuts to sink cash into a system if you are getting nothing out of it but for me I think jumping on board and trying to support a machine after it has effectively failed as people did buying the Wii-U in its later years of life... that is the real madness.

    on 12 March 2017

    Yeah if you didnt have a Wii U I think its worth it with Zeruda and MK8 next month, still if u find a Wii U cheap u should get it, some games wont likely get ports like Bayo 2 and W101, which is my fave game on the system. I hope those games get sequels, then it's instabuy for me. Enjoy your Switch!

    Same spinning icon, that said I did also get a few pages not loading correctly the last week, with streams of Code down the page or else just the formatting all over the place because portions of the CSS must have have came down with the page correctly...
