  2. Starlink: Battle for Atlas (do a barrel roll!)

    It was the only game I played at EGX that I didn't enjoy.

  4. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled 21st June 2019

    I only got to play a tiny bit of this on the old ps but what puts this above or at least on par with Mario kart? Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
  5. General Retro Discussion

    Nah, I've never played it, or owned it. I just know a little about it. Though if I do get a Super NT... that would probably change! Haven't bothered buying cartridges for years because playing original SNES consoles on a modern display isn't really a great experience (and I've been spoiled by the Virtual Console with its myriad of extra features and goodies too!) In the absence of an ongoing VC service though, and the introduction of the Super NT? Original carts have become a much more interesting prospect now for those games that never got VC releases! (and I'd love to try out some of the randomiser stuff and the cool mods with a flash cart like the SD2SNES!)
  6. Starlink: Battle for Atlas (do a barrel roll!)

    Its been an absolute bomb on all fronts. The starter pack dropped in price very quickly and now all of the extra ships and accessories are half price at various shops. Ubisoft must have lost a lot of money on the project. Honestly, I'm looking forward to playing it. I think I'll fire it up once I'm done with the World of Light mode on Smash Bros.

    It's such a standout technically impressive title isn't it? I can't believe that I didn't even try the game cartridge until now but in a way I'm glad I waited as it's great on my current setup. Have you played the game much at all? I found it a bit tricky to get to grips with the controls but I could see how the game could be fun once you get used to how it plays. Yes, It certainly sounds like it helped to leave quite the lasting legacy, especially bridging the gap between SNES 3D and N64 3D graphics. I can say that the Analogue Super NT is one of the best purchases I've made this year and I don't regret putting down a pre-order for the Mega SG at the same time. Though largely thanks to that, those two consoles and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are my last purchases of the year and I'll be cutting back on the game purchases now. Heck, I only lucked into getting Resident Evil 2 when I did thanks to my brother getting the game cheap and then offering it to me for a trade which was more than fair. I can definitely say that I have most of the games that I want now, so it's about time that I put in the effort and played some of them while I can.
  8. The Game Awards 2018

    I'll admit my first impressions of him were not good. I just thought he was a weirdo wearing a mascot costume for some reason. Once I found out he was a furry, it at least explained it, but it was his enthusiasm and happiness that won me over. He seems like a genuinely happy, awesome guy. I think it speaks volumes about someone if they hate someone so happy. Disliking, sure, everyone's different, but I don't know how anyone can actually hate someone like him.
  9. Starlink: Battle for Atlas (do a barrel roll!)

    In hindsight (well, not really), Ubisoft were about 5 years too late for a toys to life game, especially one that doesn't rely on brand recognition like Nintendo, Disney etc. The Star Fox connection definitely got it more sales, but this sounds like an absolute disaster otherwise. Seems pretty fun from what I've seen of it, with a surprising amount of depth.

    Nah. However, last year we had a high magnification X-Ray machine in the lab that was originally used for inspecting PCBs. I wanted to get a GameCube off of eBay and stick it in to see if I could find the hidden Dolphin logo. Sadly, I never got around to doinh it and the machine was no longer any use to us, so we sent it back.
  11. Cheers, after what felt like the 47th attempt I finally beat them, only to be met with a blocked path. D'oh! I'll look around some more get skill points etc.

    https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2018-12-09-uk-charts-super-smash-bros-ultimate-is-the-fastest-selling-smash-bros-of-all-time Ultimate is over 300% up on Smash 4! And even more so when you take digital downloads into account.
  13. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — 7th December 2018

    It's hard to give specific advice as you can customize your fighter to how it suits you. Have you been spending your points to upgrade your skills? Also, if a certain element of the fight is troubling you then try switching support spirits to help even the odds. You could also leave it and come back once you're leveled up some more. Early on I struggled with a fight that had me tackle numerous metal Mega Man fighters. I came back later and destroyed it with a better setup and stronger spirits.

    Vortex is a really interesting little game. You can clearly see how a lot of the tech would eventually find its way into Starfox 2 (especially with the transforming mech/Arwing!).. Even more interesting when you consider that Starfox 2's engine would end up becoming the basis for both Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time (and of course every subsequent Nintendo EAD/EPD release from there). BTW, I still need to get myself a Super NT and a Mega SG... And the N64 version of RE2! Always wanted to try it! It's such a bonkers mad port! That's super cool! Do you guys have any stripped down game consoles by any chance? I bet that the kids would love to see a stripped down Game Boy, or a stripped down Sega Saturn with its monstrous architecture and board layout!
  15. How the F do you beat the Andy spirit from Advance Wars in World of Light, I must have tried about 30-40 times
  16. General Retro Discussion

    @Hero-of-Time and anyone else who loves Resident Evil 2, check out the latest DF Retro which goes through every single version. I'm definitely going to play that N64 version at some point soon.
  17. I just beat him was struggling for ages probably close to an hour, in the end after I exhausted a number of fighter/spirit combinations I gave in and switched difficulty down from Normal to Easy I have no shame!!!!! The Yarn Yoshi spirit was also a tough one I did today. I was talking with someone yesterday who was having trouble with it and I thought I beat it already...but I must have been thinking of the Yoshi fighter unlock I guess
  18. getting To the stage now where I basically can’t go any further with WOL as I’m stuck on every single stage. The yoshi one where there’s 4 of them and all fighters are easy to launch is pathetic. No spirit that actually does anything and whichever character I choose can’t get a hit on edge ways against any of them. Think I’ll stick to classic mode. lol.

    For anyone purchasing PowerA Gamecube controllers, don't buy the silver or gold versions. I've heard they've used a really bad quality paint on those, and they start to get worn down almost immediately. Go safe with gray, purple or black!
  20. General Switch Discussion

    I was in London visiting friends actually. I had a lovely time, and it's nice of you to ask. I'm glad you had a good time. I do kind of want one of those GameCube controller converters though as I have like six controllers somewhere.
  21. Crazy numbers, especially considering I suspect digital sales will have been pretty high. Switch software sales remain an absolute beast. Nintendo made a console that people want to play games on.

    I think GAME have the grey as an exclusive. Argos do the purple and black.
  23. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    I love how I keep losing matches by jumping off the stage... Thanks for the games! Will be back online later tonight (around 7:30 UK time).
  24. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Great fun all round @ArtMediocre and @Vileplume2000. I'm still around until 7 if anyone else wants to join, just give me a shout if the room is closed by then.
