Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

The frame rate on hyrule warriors calamity whatever it’s called isn’t great, at least not in undocked mode. It’s bad enough to seriously detract from the game for me.

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I’ve been recently re enjoying the GameCube! It’s a real great experience. Most of these games haven’t aged a day.

Re: I am vexed by the fact the gameboy advance and DS second hand market is saturated by fake games.

Japanese carts have a notch in the side and won’t turn on without that because the power switch slides in, like on the original gameboy. Western ones don’t have the notch, but the shape of the cart viewed from the bottom is different, you can’t physically fit a Japanese one into the slot of a weste...

Re: I am vexed by the fact the gameboy advance and DS second hand market is saturated by fake games.

You see it a fair bit with Megadrive stuff on eBay as well. They tend not to care to hide it that well though, obvious things like US Genesis artwork but on a Japanese shaped cart shell etc... But yeah, for some reason the Nintendo handhelds suffer incredibly badly for it. I had no idea US and JP m...

Re: I am vexed by the fact the gameboy advance and DS second hand market is saturated by fake games.

Never even realised this was a thing until recently. I suppose spotting fakes when you have them in your hand is easy enough if you know what you're looking for, but how can you tell if something listed on eBay is a counterfeit? It depends, some are real obvious. To go back to Pokemon cartridges, t...

I am vexed by the fact the Game Boy Advance and DS second hand market is saturated by fake games

I am a big pokemon fan, and a big fan of the GBA and DS libraries in general, like a lot of people on here. I am attempting to build/rebuild my personal collections of games, particularly Pokemon, but also first party Nintendo in general. Lots of the GBA games in particular have never been re-releas...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I have been playing Ratchet & Clank into the nexus! Which is the last PS3 R&C game, that got released during the PS4 launch for some reason, and its very fun. Has some real interesting ideas I hope are worked into a rift apart or whatever the PS5 one is called, seems like it will be.

Re: Videogame Deals

I enjoyed it a lot when I played the PS3 version back in the day, but 7 years is a long time, so maybe it’s aged a lot.

Re: PS3/360 games I shouldn't miss

You can skip resistance 2, but resistance 1 costs just 50 pence from Cex, so I think it'd be a shame to skip it.

Re: Are you genuinely excited for Xbox Series X|S & PS5?

Very much so. New hardware always excites me, and it’s a light in this otherwise dismal year for me. It has indeed been a shitter of a year! Hope you're doing alright! I'm not sure viruses have an understanding or appreciation of the Gregorian calendar, so I'm not expecting a miraculous turnaround ...
