    He just quit! Yes, really. Just broke, will edit in an article shortly. EDIT: Here you go. Naturally, he's claiming he's not at fault. He's clearly lying.

    Time to bring this thread back... eBay voucher code... SUNNY15 15% off, £15 minimum spend, max £75 discount, ends on June 12th, selected sellers only. Can be used on Switch games, and other platforms, including pre-orders. I decided to get Sonic Origins Plus as the Game Collection Outlet have a few copies on all platforms, Switch version is £30.56 with 17 copies left. You could also use it on the recently announced Everybody 1-2 Switch! if you prefer, as the pre-order price is already cheap, with the code it's £21.21 exactly. Of course, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is available, making it £48.41 which is reasonable now it's been out for a month and is still in demand. - - - - - Over on the NYXI site, the GameCube style Wizard controller is for sale again, this time not only in purple, but Black and Platinum colours as well. It's a pricey pad, as it's just over £50 after converting from dollars, but if you are ordering on the site for the first time, there's usually a voucher code. Also, if you're ordering £100 worth of controllers or accessories, and you're using Paypal, you can use the code PAYWITHPAYPAL for $10 off which should be £7.97 off. Here's the link in case anyone was considering buying a controller. I've been using the Wizard pad for a while now, it has been great for Mario Kart 8 DX and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

    Me again, eh? Guess I'm the only one finishing games, huh? How's that ridiculously massive open world treating you lot? Why is Raven (Bottom right) so white in this picture? That's iffy as hell, and it rubs me the wrong way. Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition is an expanded port of an action RPG that originally released for the XBox 360 in 2009. The definitive edition was released on various consoles in 2019. The game follows Yuri Lowell, a former knight living his life in the slums of Zaphias. The water source there busts a pipe and leaks water everywhere, eventually sending Yuri, and his faithful canine companion, and best character in the game, Repede, on a journey to find the person who stole the part that keeps the water flowing properly. It's an RPG, so naturally, things soon escalate. Boy, do I have some issues with this plot... I'm not kidding when I say the dog is the best character. Tales of Vesperia plays like a typical RPG, except that the battles take place in real time, with a control scheme somewhat similar to a fighting game. Different characters have different strengths and weaknesses, although you'll likely just play as Yuri, because he's far and away better then mostly everyone else. Considering that this game supports multiplayer, I can imagine all sorts of arguments over who gets lumped with Estelle, but that's part of the fun. The gameplay is solid, it's fun figuring out the best way to string together different attacks into combos as you progress, and the game has a cool system where you can gain different passive benefits from weapons you find. Yeah, it's ripping off that system from Final Fantasy IX, but that's fine. You shouldn't crush Eagles, they're endangered. The game runs smoothly on Switch. 60 FPS throughout. I mean, it's an XBox 360 game, so you'd think that would be a given, but after the shambolic state of the Tales of Symphonia port, this seems like a miracle port in comparison. That said, the sound mixing is all over the place. Some voices are at a very low volume compared to others in the very same scene, there are typos and incorrect dialogue throughout. It looks really sloppy. Still, it's not a bad game. I enjoyed it, but it's not as good as the other two Tales of games I played.

    Honestly? The Metroidvania approach is a good idea for Prince of Persia. It could totally work.

    Sonic Superstars announced for Switch Now up on the main page. Overview and trailer. - - - - This looks fantastic, classic Sonic, with the generations aesthetic, plus the 'Mania' and 'Origins' feel to it with the multiple playable characters. The drop-in, drop-out co-op is really what sets this apart though, as this could work very well indeed. New emerald powers were touted as one of the features, which could prove to be either interesting, or more throwaway... Those wisp-type transformations look fun, for instance, though the 'Sonic summon' at the boss might be a bit overpowered, though we'll see how it plays out. Sonic has definitely needed something new in the 2D games, with Sonic Frontiers providing that for 3D Sonic, Sonic Superstars looks like it'll do the same, in its own way.

    Thanks for the games. Well that was interesting... the first time in a while that I've changed kart parts, that setup seemed slower initially, even on 200cc, but it soon picked up. Neo Bowser City was predictably a train-wreck, though speaking of trains, it was cool to see the predictability of the train on Kalimari Desert go off the rails in the extra GP. The tracks with the most traffic were easily the highlights of the evening, with some very close finishes. Here's a link to this week's stream... - - - - - N-Europe Get Together! (08/06/2023)

    Looks interesting, hopefully coop doesn't make the levels too empty when playing alone. It's a bit random how a new Sonic and Star Trek gane were both announced on the same day.

    Welp, so much for that dream. Co-op is local multiplayer only.
