There are still 80 odd games installed on my 360 that I can’t play anywhere else, including several Cave shmups.

New Smash Direct:

New characters announced for Smash:

Simon Belmont, Richter Belmont, King K. Rool, Chrom and Dark Samus. They are all getting amiibos.

New stages include New Donk City Hall and Dracula's castle from Castlevania.

Dracula will appear as a stage boss, randomly.

Rathalos from Monster Hunter will show up as BOTH a boss and an assist trophy.

Shovel Knight is in Smash.....as an assist. So are Grey Fox from MGS, Knuckles from Sonic, Alucard from Symphony of the Night and...the moon from Majora's Mask.

There's a Super Smash Bros Ultimate LIMITED EDITION being released

-Copy of SSBU
-Ultimate Edition Nintendo GameCube Controller
-Nintendo GameCube Controller Adapter

There are roughly 800 music tracks for the new Smash and 103 stages.

34 of the music tracks will be from Castlevania.


This really looks like a hell of a game.

I’m actually thinking it’s worth getting just to have all those lovely music remixes in one place...

I gotta be honest, after that opening I was convinced we were getting a new Luigi’s Mansion.

I think the Luigi abuse is really going too far. Someone at Nintendo hates him with a distressing fervour that has only grown over the decades.

Daisy scoffs at the idea Luigi gets the rough end of the stick.

Quick question: How many of you have both a Switch and a WiiU hooked up / ready to use?
*Shows hand*. Aside from all reasons mentioned (including a handful of VC games) I have a thing for that odd machine and the unique game experiences it offers. Games like Nintendoland and Game & Wario are still in regular rotation for low entry bar multiplayer gaming. Plus it's our device of choice for Netflix, with the gamepad functionality.

At least he's had a FULL YEAR dedicated to him., Shame he couldn't really capitalise on it.

I really liked the Grandia games, if you’ve played Child of Light you’ll be able to see where Ubi ‘borrowed’ the combat system from :)

I love the first one, like the second one, though I probably haven't played the second one since about 2004/5.

Haven't played Child of Light but now that you've made that comparison, I might try and track it down!

I am honestly looking very forward to the Nintendo Cease and Desist classic.

Looks fantastic! :D

So I've been following a dude called Furrtek that's been doing some wizardry with the display output settings on Virtual Boy's.

He's come up with a solution called VirtualTap. So far, he's manged to get a clean crisp RGB output onto a CRT, which looks stunning.

Currently, it's only outputs are VGA and NTSC RGB.

He's also programmed the display so that you can alter the display colours, if the red & black output of the VB is a bit harsh, then maybe you'll go for a teal and black, or blue and black.

Either way, hopefully, soon, there'll be a simple plug and play box you can use to finally play these games without breaking your face, eyes and head.

I want one of these. Bad.

So far, it's just down as 35 minutes of upcoming 3DS and Switch games.

I reckon we'll hear about the online service and all the complicated issues surrounding that too - surely.

Who knows, maybe something cool too, something that's a long way away but in development.....

I have a good feeling about this one.
