Re: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

That’s a sticking point for many, myself included.
You have to stealth it 100%.

Stick with it, it’s not very long.

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I do understand people coming to 64 new not getting on with it, but as someone who was there at the time (PAL anyway), I can always enjoy going back to it, quirks and all. Sunshine remains by some distance my least favourite Mario game however; A frustrating, padded, rush job with nowhere near 'Nint...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Speaking as a big Mario game fan, and very much 'a part of the problem' (i.e. I preorded on the eShop for £49.99), I don't think there's much doubt that Nintendo could have done a better job with this, even if it was just a few more basics such as: 16:9 and 60fps for Super Mario 64 60fps (and no dub...

Hades

Currently the best-reviewed game of 2020 so far (source: OpenCritic), just ahead of the likes of the Last of Us Part II, MS Flight Sim, Crusader Kings III and Half-Life: Alyx. As such, it probably deserves its own thread. On Switch, I've just got beyond the first boss once and am having a good time ...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Yeah! I used to love those games back on the Megadrive. Just a heads-up that this shares no DNA with the old PGA Tour games - it’s a totally different golf game that has secured the PGA license - by all accounts it’s not bad though. The old PGA games were what became Tiger Woods and then eventually...

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

As discussed previously, 360 games on Xbox One S do not look any different or better than they did on 360 in terms of pixel count/resolution or graphical effects, however the increased CPU/GPU power can improve frame rates in some cases. Perhaps the Series S will do some sort of hardware upscaling t...
