  1. What Have You Bought?

    Back (essentially) by popular demand. However, remember some purchases can warrant their own thread. Don't be afraid to make new threads and all that! Along those lines we may thrip from time to time.

We have moved across the post-launch discussions about the machine and intend for this to be the general general Switch thread going forward. We have also closed the Other Switch Thread in the other console forum. That topic was created because people felt they couldn't openly and honestly discuss and criticise the NX/Switch and while it was not what we felt was necessarily best, we understand members felt a need for it. We are now asking that as the console has launched and we know about it more and what its pros and cons are, any discussions are done in this thread. Be courteous of others when discussing and ask for clarification if something seems wrong or 'absurd' to you. Please respect that others may think differently to you. Those that are being obstructive or insulting will be contacted and if it continues will find themselves banned from the thread and, if necessary, further action will be taken.
  3. Shenmue 3 (Kickstarter)

    Wow you must have put in a lot of hours at the harbour for that.

  6. good stuff thread.

    Cuberatulations @Cube
  7. Welcome to NTCOMR! Catchy, no? Anyway, people tend to PM one person (or sometimes all of us) when they want a name change, or a thread title changed. Figured it would be easier if there could be a place to request it and whoever spots it first can change it, as at times I don't get around to looking at my PMs for days on end.
  8. Suggestions

    Okay we're getting a lot of suggestions in various places so the neat freak in me decided upon this topic. Suggestions Ones im aware of: 1. Forum is too small for big displays so see about centering/stretching/whatever 2. Retro schemes 3. Arcade Answers 1. Will talk to Jan and Lammie, not sure whose hands it should fall in (coder vs designer basically) 2. It will happen, just in time. Christmas is round the corner 3. Need a hack, and to do that I need the license holder. Im pretty sure its Tim whose moving counry at the moment so again, patience. I will update this post with all new suggestions and answers when they're posted below.
  9. I want him in battle. But not be hurt in battle. My heart couldn't cope.
  11. Languages

    So this was talked about a fair bit in the Self-Improvement thread from a while ago but it deserves its own thread because I felt like it Just a general place to talk about languages you speak (other than your mother tongue) and what you're learning. I'm currently plowing through Italian. Starting to feel more confident in certain aspects, but I really need to at some point address grammatical issues. My vocab is at ~1800 words/phrases I have been through, although obviously not all of them come to mind easily. However, grammar is something I'm somewhat picking up through repetition but I know I need to really focus on it at some point. I started primarily with Duolingo but find myself favouring Memrise more lately. I don't know why, I think it's in part the way they test your memory (Duolingo tests it on a per-category basis with a strengthometer whereas Memrise lumps together all words/phrases and tests 10 at a time). I just find it better for me personally, plus I like how there's a lot of different courses you can join. Obviously they vary in quality, but there seems to be a group of 'official' ones that are pretty decent (Italian appears to have 7, although the number of words/phrases between them seem to vary significantly). I'm hoping to plod on with this for a little while longer and build a good base and then learn some more of the other romance languages.
  12. Job woes/wins

    Remind me where your new job is based...
  13. I don't know whether it's just because I'm more familiar with the region its riffing, but is it me or is this region much more reliant on lazy stereotyping than previous ones? Also, do carnivores really just throw sausages on top of a curry?
  14. They blew their load by giving away Yoshi in a lab coat for free.
  15. Knights and Bikes (PS4/PC)

    Finally got round to downloading this earlier (family were down last weekend and I've been at the coal face all week) and played a little bit and it is charming. Wish my housemate hadn't moved away though, I feel like part of the charm would be the multiplayer aspect.
  16. General Movie Thread

    How dare you. Go watch Halt and Catch Fire as your penance.
  17. General Movie Thread

    The 😋 was intentional. Yeah I don't watch them but fill your boots.
  18. General Movie Thread

    You realise several on your list of original Hollywood films are adaptations, right...? And I know it's not an exhaustive list obviously but that spans 40 years. Although yeah, I could do with less Marvel films 😋
  19. General Movie Thread

    I hear Malala has. Hollywood has been remaking/adapting things for literally a hundred years now. It's just overall they're putting out more content and the media tends to focus on the most popular (because clicks) but the growth of digital filmmaking has meant there's plenty more original work out there than there ever has been. Go spend a day on Vimeo or get a Curzon Home membership.
  20. What Have You Bought?

    Can we request anything from your bedside table?
  21. What Have You Bought?

    I bet he just sends a shopping list with "Fast and Furious 8" on it.
  22. Mario & Sonic at the 2020 Olympics (Switch)

    It's a complete nostalgia grab but I'll be dammed if it's not tempting
  23. Pichu is just ride or die for Birdo and honestly I respect that.
  24. Pichu hurts himself in Smash though. Pichu is an idiot.
