Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Yeah that's what I was thinking! Save scum my way through it more than likely, haha. Hmm I didn't realise Zero Mission was a remake of the first game. I'm sure I played some of that on GBA back in the day without realising so. Interesting. I'll give the old one a try on Switch first and if it's impe...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Is the first Metroid game on the NES still worth playing? I've read such wildly varying reviews (mostly from a modern point of view). I've never played a Metroid game for longer than a few hours, although I do like the MetroidVania (yeah, MetroidVania, deal with it!) genre. Just wondered if it was w...

Re: Videogame News

I don't find it uncomfortable. My only gripe, and it's nothing to do with the Switch, is that when I'm lying in bed playing it, my hands go numb after a while but I think that's just bad circulation as I'm effectively holding them above my heart. I have to put it down and dangle my hands down for a ...

Yeah battery life is awful. My Vita literally lasts days. Well over a week usually!

Re: Videogame News

Nintendo confirm new Switch model is incoming - only improvement is battery life. Will hit Japan around August time. Its not an upgrade really, just a new revision/model like you get with the Xbox and PS4.

Re: Videogame News

I never liked the Wii one for some reason but one on Gamecube loads, although I'm sure we spent more time on the mini games. Hoping this remake isn't motion control only, I'm sure it won't be.

Best shmups on Vita / 3DS?
Söldner-X 1 & 2 are supposed to be pretty good, although I haven't played them personally.
They're okay, but far too easy.

Firestick/Chromecast etc

Hey - in the kids room they've used my old 360 to watch Netflix and YouTube etc, but we're looking at replacing it with a USB stick in the TV and don't have any experience with these. Can anyone recommend a cheapish dongle that'll do Netflix, YouTube & iPlayer. If it also has the capacity to install...

I’ll probably cave and buy marvel ultimate alliance.
I wasn't interested in that till I saw a trailer. I don't know why but I thought it was some sort of card battler game! It looks like a Marvel themed hack and slash RPG-lite though, sound about right?

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Really enjoyed the opening hour of Mario+Rabbids on Switch last night. Very simple so far, but utterly charming and the Rabbids are genuinely slapstick funny in places. Looking forward to getting in to it more later.

There is a very high chance that's what I'm remembering rather than me wondering whether there would be a new game in the series. Anything past a few hours ago gets very murky :lol:

Oh wow that's odd timing, I was only thinking yesterday I wonder if a new Monkey Ball game would ever come out!
