Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

My brothers got me a PlayStation Classic for my birthday last week, and I’m very happy with it so far! I’ve got it running on a small TV in my study (sharing HDMI and power with my C64 Mini), and Super Puzzle Fighter 2, Destruction Derby, Twisted Metal and Ridge Racer - which are all I’ve put seriou...

Re: Videogame Deals

There’s been loads of good stuff on sale on Switch this week, but just spotted Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove has been added, which is the game plus all the DLC, at 50% Off, which is about £11.50 - I didn’t pay much attention to the exact amount in my excitement to buy it!

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

After listening to the C&R Pilotwings podcast a few weeks ago, I’d been meaning to pick it up on 3DS Virtual Console, then noticed it was 50% off with My Nintendo the other day, so got it for £3.50. Never played it before but it’s still very playable, though I’m not entirely sure what’s going on wit...

Re: What's Out This Week?

There's an Arcade Archives release of Ninja Gaiden out on Switch tomorrow. Which is my birthday so I have the perfect excuse to treat myself!

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Just interjecting to say that whilst Overcooked is playable with one person (you get cooks you can swop between), it really needs to be played with other people to be properly enjoyed - a wonderful return to couch co-op Thanks for that. Unfortunately I think one player is as far as I'll get with a ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I downloaded What Remains of Edith Finch today, one of this month’s PS+ games, and enjoyed the family-free few hours after work that it’s taken me to play through it, whilst not being especially blown away by it. It was a cleverly told and mostly engaging story, but I found it a bit predictable and ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

All sorts on the go on the Switch at the moment... Final Fantasy 7: Been playing for over 10 hours but get the feeling I’m only just getting started. Definitely looks dated but it’s still playing just fine. Cuphead: Finished the first island. It really is brilliant! Mega Man 5: Got to Proto Man’s Ca...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Aside: has anyone tried Pinball FX3 on Switch? I'm a big fan on PlayStation, however the Switch version seems fundamentally broken. You cannot activate both flippers at the same time!? I’ve played for 10+ hours on the Switch and probably double that on PS4 and I’ve never noticed that! I’m also not ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

After getting through one of the routes on Out Run af the weekend, I’ve now done all five, unlocked all the Sega Ages version cars and buffs, and the original arcade version. I’m going through every route on that now. Not sure what the difference is if you were only using the original car in the oth...

Woah Dave! was free on PS+ (PS4/Vita) a few years back. It’s quite cool I think.
Thanks Leon! There it was in my library. It is very good and is definitely a one more go type game. Very similar to Super Crate Box in single player at least.

.Did you ever try Woah Dave!?
I’ve heard the name but didn’t know what it was. Just saw it’s available on 3DS (as I don’t have a PC) so will put it on my wish list. Thanks!

I reckon about £6.99 on Switch - the Nintendo equivalent of free!

No way I can resist having Super Crate Box on Switch. Just take my money now.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

After decades of trying, I finally got to the end of Out Run today! I’ve come within touching distance a couple of times on the Sega Ages version on Switch but this time, apart from a brush with one other car, everything went right and I had seconds to spare. In all my years of gaming, I think this ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I’ve been playing Zelda II: The Adventure of Link a couple of evenings a week since January, and I’ve finally finished this obnoxious, hateful, but occasionally lovable excuse for a game! I’m not ashamed to say I completely spammed the Switch Online version’s quick saves and regularly checked guides...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I’m quite enjoying what I’ve played of Cuphead so far. Much like Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, etc, I doubt I’ll ever finish it, but I’m sure I’ll get my money’s worth out of it. I also picked up the Konami Arcade Collection on Switch this week, mainly for Scramble which I’ll always love, same for Nemesis, but ...

Bit of a slow start to 2019, and I really wish I could include Out Run here because after decades I’ve now seen the finish line on one of the final stages.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Baba is You on Switch is now taking up most of my gaming time, as well as starting to haunt most of the rest of my time! Don’t think any game has ever had me in such deep thought, working out what needs to be done then how to do it. It’s such a clever, unique concept! Also been having a good time wi...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

For someone that doesn’t like puzzle games, I’ve been playing a lot of puzzle games! I finished The Witness on PS4. I did like the logical nature of the puzzles but in reality there wasn’t much variety and by the end it was dragging. And I’ve still no idea what any of it was about! I’ve also done ab...
