I don’t think Hamster have any Atari IP, so you won’t get an ACA version of Pit Fighter.

Re: What's Out This Week?

I am looking forward to Dr Mario on mobile but the trailers make it look very free to play. I really hope it’s not just another matching game with a Nintendo veneer.

Re: Game that defines the console?

I love a list! Based on games I’ve played, in the order I’ve owned the console (or thereabouts)... Hope I’m allowed games on computers too!

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I think Game Boy Castlevania Adventure gets a bum rap. Then again, I think that about Pit Fighter and the Spectrum version of Out Run too! Anyway, I remember being hugely impressed with it on the original hardware, and have really enjoyed playing through it again in the Konami Castlevania Collection...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Mario Kart 8, Breath of the Wild, Gris, Minit and Hollow Knight have entered my top 50 this year. Some older games have too, thanks to the NES Classic Mini and the Switch, including the original Zelda and Balloon Fight. And Out Run has jumped a long way up the list too. 1. Feud (Spectrum) 2. Kick Of...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I’ve played a lot of this and literally had one go at the medium and expert tracks. I just love that first track and have been obsessing over times. I’m not great at racing games but I’m having a great time trying to shave tenths or seconds off my times, which is something I haven’t done in a racing...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Just two days after the above acts of rage, which Nintendo’s excellent UK store has already delivered replacements for, I’ve finished Shovel Knight! Like another game with Knight in the title, it haunted me and there was no way I was letting it beat me, so I reinstalled it and finished it. I got str...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Further to my last post about nearly finishing Shovel Knight, I’ve now binned it. What seemed like a tenner well spent has turned into £70 of replacement joy-cons after mine had an accident with a wall on what turned out to be halfway through the second-to-last level. Having looked at a walkthrough ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I’ve been playing a level on Shovel Knight every now and then for a few weeks, since I bought it in the Switch E3 sale, and seem to be right near the end without really realising I’d gone that far. Not sure I’ve played it right because I’ve got a ton of item slots and only a couple filled, and I’m j...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Very much enjoying Virtua Racing, however online is completely unplayable! It's just awful, awful lag. Frame rate drops to about 15fps and input delay means you literally cannot steer the car! Bizarre. Yep. I had one game online and it was awful. Hope they can patch that. I saw you playing when I w...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finally got my hands on Virtua Racing for Switch. On,y time for a quick go so far but wow! Resident Evil 2 Remake is really, really good. The tension is incredible (especially when the big dude starts following you about), with great plot balance that gives you just enough freedom to make you have t...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I fully intended for Mega Man 11 on PS4 to be my next instalment in the series whenever the mood took me, but when it did I had my Switch turned on and through sheer laziness I fired up Mega Man 6 to get my fix instead. I guess finishing 1-5 almost back to back has improved my game, but this feels a...

Starlink, with toys, is now down to £12.99 for all platforms on Amazon. And I thought the £17 I paid on Switch was a bargain!

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

My original Game Boy died last year, and more recently my GBA SP’s backlight has gone, so I’ve been in the market for some kind of replacement. In May I eventually ordered the new BittBoy Pocket Go with £28 of low-risk birthday money, and it’s arrived. It’s a similar form factor to the original GBA,...
