  1. I wish they'd stop using the legendaries for covers. They're normally pretty ugly.

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. My Friend Pedro (2019)

    Hey now, Flash was great for animation and some fun games. It just shouldn't have been railroaded into websites. That being said, the animation in that launch trailer is amazing.
  4. *to the tune of 'what would she look like with a chimney for a head'*
  5. It's one of @Daft's too, so there's at least two fans!
  6. Report a Bug! [Read OP first]

    Yeah it's now the same for me. Paging @Shorty
  7. 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.
  8. Report a Bug! [Read OP first]

    I've only just gone on today and seems okay. Maybe a blip?
  9. Some of you are already familiar with Game Maker's Toolkit, a video series by Mark Brown that analyses different games, themes, concepts etc. He's started a new series analysing each major Zelda game (starting with ALTTP due to it being the first one that really sets up the core Zelda mechanics) in terms of their dungeon designs. He says it will take a few months as he'll play through each game before the video, but worth checking out!
  10. No More Heroes 3

  11. *adds George Michael to predictions*
  12. Shenmue 3 (Kickstarter)

    Technically? Little I imagine. But this is a money thing I suspect.
  13. We share points and I was pleasantly surprised. Mostly because I forgot what I predicted other than Rick.
  14. Shenmue 3 (Kickstarter)

    You need it installed on your PC. You just can't play it using Steam.
  15. General TV Thread

    Yeah it's better that they don't drag it out but it's a shame that 2019 is the year of two Kristen Bell shows and 2020 will only have one for a few episodes in January 😟
  16. Yooka Laylee And The Impossible Lair

    I basically meant new characters 😋
  17. Google Stadia

    They've never been able to replicate the success of Zune.
  18. General TV Thread

    The 4th season of The Good Place will be its last.
  19. Indie Games

    Dream Daddy is coming to Switch (and iOS and Android) some time later this year. I played it for a few hours and it may seem weird and corny at first but it's actually got quite a sweet story at its heart. Really must finish that off at some point.
  20. Yooka Laylee And The Impossible Lair

    When they first announced YL they said they want to create a series of games within the same 'universe'. I wonder if that's still the plan...
  21. Pokémon Direct - June 5th: 2pm

    You do make some odd points sometimes. Yeah, the first N64 Zelda game was going to be 3D. Not because Nintendo were steadfastly trying to break with Zelda convention at that point, but just because that was the console's selling point at the time. Would have been weird had it not been. But I know it wasn't your main point, it just struck me. Anyway, I see Pokémon as one of those franchises that it's okay to not get every time a new one comes out. Sometimes you might think "not enough new for me" and that's fine. It's like the 2D Marios, or Yoshi, or Kirby or Fifa or Assassins Creed or GTA or many other franchises. Yes, there may be unique things about those games compared to others in the franchise but the gist is largely the same so it's fine to sit it out and every now and then. The Pokémon franchise is what it is. There are some unique ideas within each game, some of which become staples and some of them are dropped quicker than Google drops apps, but the essence is never going to fundamentally changed between one game and the next. It's a slower evolution*. *yes I went there
  22. Pokémon Direct - June 5th: 2pm

    It was kind of a joke but the amount of Pokémon each with their own models, animations, the character animations etc has always been intense for whatever console they're working on. I don't think they're pushing it to the max, but they've certainly got a difficult challenge in that regard. BotW didn't have ~900 different creatures to contend with. At least the humans look less like bobbleheads this time! Thanks nerd. I skipped Sun/Moon so didn't realise that. I just assumed it was prepending 'Max' to the move name.

    Asked for a pay rise earlier and it's gone up the chain.
