Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

The switch pro controller is a thing of beauty. Highly recommended.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I have been playing Wipeout Omega Collection! I'm not a fan of racing games as a rule, but I've always loved the wipeout games to the extent I will put the time into them to get good at them. They play really well, great music, spectacular visuals, I just love them. If I may criticise omega collecti...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I was able to grab Persona Q2 for a not unreasonable £40. I’m trying to finish my ears 3DS games collection before they become even more expensive.

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Even on the places that had it in stock, it is now out though. I shall keep my eyes peeled for a reasonably priced copy.

I wish I'd put a pre order down on Persona Q2, cos it now appears to be out of stock basically everywhere.

Re: E3 2019 - Conference times and general chat

I'm really gonna miss Sony's conference, even if it saves me staying up till 4am. It's been a ritual with my friend for nearly 10 years now that we hang out, get pizza and play video games on the night, then watch the conference. Hope its back next year.

I have been playing 3D Dot Game Heroes! Which is a lot of fun, doesn't take itself seriously at all, and I would highly recommend it.

Re: The more I go back to last gen, the worse it seems (PS3 and 360)

So, I've been playing a little more, and I've somewhat softened my opinion further. Let's go through Sonic 06 - Nooope. This game was always a nope, but 12 years after release its just.... its shocking a game this unfinished even released. Whats even worse is the amount of affection I have for this ...

Re: The more I go back to last gen, the worse it seems (PS3 and 360)

It all depends on what you play and what you prioritize in games. For me, technology should serve creative expression (be it in terms of gameplay or narrative). For a lot of players and developers, it's the other way around. I take your point about performance issues. Playing Halo CE again a few mo...

Re: The more I go back to last gen, the worse it seems (PS3 and 360)

The visual difference between last gen and this gen is quite remarkable though. Feels like night and day. I didn’t include Wii games in my thoughts because they don’t feel like they’ve aged badly at all. Like the best first party Nintendo games, they’ve aged like fine wine. Mario Galaxy is an outsta...

Re: The more I go back to last gen, the worse it seems. (PS3 and 360)

I think it holds up just fine to be honest. I can't really say I have any sense of nostalgia for the PS3 or 360 though, they're far too recent. Although I suppose it's all relative and depends on your age - and that's not supposed to sound patronising in any way. Maybe affection is a better word fo...

Maybe we've been spoiled by so many remasters of last generation games, but going back to the last generation consoles and the games that didn't get remasters is not an experience to help your nostalgia. A lot of these games seem to run very poorly, at least on consoles. I don't recall them running ...

I’d like resi 4 on switch, but the price is outrageous so I’ll wait.
21 quid via the Russian eShop if that's any sweeter a proposition. Was just enough to tempt me.
How do you do that again? I've completely forgot, last time I did it was for sonic mania.

Re: If you could only pick one console...

I can’t believe no one has said the DS yet. The DS library is so outstanding, varied, I think I could play it forever and never get bored.
