  1. Been a while since I posted on here, but this is one list I feel the need to add some input to, as the Wii got so unfairly labelled as a casual and/or shovelware machine when there are many overlooked gems on there! I nominate the following, deliberately avoiding some of the more obvious games that will no doubt receive enough nominations anyway: Xenoblade Chronicles Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure Muramasa: The Demon Blade Pandora's Tower A Shadow's Tale Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  2. 3DS Console Discussion

    So, I have finally upgraded my 3DS xl to a New 3DS xl (Metroid Edition) and did not take into account the switch of SD card format to Micro SD, so now I do not have enough space to redownload all my games. Any recommendations as to which card to get? I’m guessing 64gb should be enough as that’s what I had in my old 3DS. Also noticed there is only 1 model of 3DS on Nintendo’s official uk store now, the animal crossing one - could it be that it’s finally going to be discontinued now the Switch has proven a success? Still plenty of 2DS models on there though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. 2018 Wishlist

    I’d like to see a new Wave Race and F-Zero as it has been far too long since there was a new game in either franchise, but most importantly I want to know what Retro have been working on... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Ok, I don't post much here but I love a good list so here goes: 10. Splatoon (not picked up the sequel yet) 9. Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest 8. Waverace 64 7. Metroid Prime 6. Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door 5. Super Mario 64 4. Pokemon Gold/Silver 3. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe 2. Xenoblade Chronicles 1. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. 1-2 Switch (March 3rd 2017)

    So I ended up picking this up as my girlfriend said it would be something she'd like to play. Having agreed with the opinion that it seemed a bit expensive I can actually see this being well worth the £35 I paid. Most games we tried were good fun even without any alcohol being involved and we have good friends that live no more than 5 minutes walk away so meeting up of a weekend and bringing this along could be quite a regular thing. Some of the mini games seem to be scored randomly though (specifically the pose matching and air guitar ones come to mind) and I think plate spinning could very easily lead to things being broken around the house!

  6. General Switch Discussion

    So, Switch arrived 2 hours ago. Smaller than I expected but feels well made. I didn't order a pro controller yet but the joycons in the grip are more than comfortable enough until I have some spare funds. Now, back to Zelda... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Zelda just arrived via Royal Mail, now just need DPD to arrive so I can play it... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. DPD time slot get, 14:57-15:57, gonna be a long day.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Switch order shipped, Zelda order still not.... I guess worst case scenario I will download Shovel Knight to have something to play as never got around to getting it on Wii U and it's on my list to get eventually Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. My Game order (Switch with neon Joycons, Zelda limited edition) has been in packing since Tuesday but no dispatch yet. The money has been taken from my account though so I am confident it will arrive tomorrow. Also tomorrow booked off so fingers crossed for a morning delivery, even though will probably turn up when I would have been home from work anyway! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. To answer the question about where the line is, for me there isn't one. If a game is delayed by 10 years then whether or not I still buy it depends on the quality of the finished product and whether or not I have the relevant hardware at that time. It may be frustrating when a game I'm anticipating is delayed but there's always other things to keep you occupied in the meantime, it's not going to impact on a purchase decision for me.

  12. Xenoblade Chronicles X (4th Dec)

    Oh dear, really that bad? Xenoblade Chronicles on Wii had an awesome soundtrack, how could they get it so wrong this time! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Xenoblade Chronicles X (4th Dec)

    So, finally I'm getting around to playing this! Loved the Wii game but just haven't found the time for this one until now! I've only done the first few chapters so far (got to the point where I pick my division) but surprised at just how different this feels to the previous game despite the mechanics being pretty much the same short of long/melee range weapon switching. Also the beginning is very slow paced so feel like I've only just started to actually play the game. So far though I can see me enjoying this, the only thing that I have found disappointing so far is the music, which to my ears isn't anywhere close to the standard of the Wii title (of course I'm open to the fact that there could be some great music to come as I'm only just starting out) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. What was your first Nintendo console?

    Another NES kid here, remember getting it for Christmas with Dr Mario (pack in), Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest and Turbo Racing. I can remember playing Simon's Quest for years without having a clue what I was doing and only being able to find the first mansion, it wasn't until I found a book that was based on the story for the game and contained tips for it in the mobile library that I managed to finish it! Despite all the hate that game gets and even the frustration I had with it I have so many fond memories of playing it. Have been a Nintendo person ever since, owning just about every Nintendo console and handheld except the virtual boy, and still own all of them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Wii Appreciation Thread

    Whenever I mention the Wii at work I still get people saying the system was just full of shovelware and had no games worth playing, and yet my Wii is the system I have bought most games for. Despite being underpowered it still produced some graphical masterpieces (I still think Muramasa: The Demon Blade is one of the best looking games on any system ever), and as always even if the graphics were not up to the standard of the 360 and PS3 it's the gameplay that counts, and games like Xenoblade, Mario Galaxy, Monster Hunter and many more were more than worthy of anyone's time. Needless to say I love the Wii, and I agree with the sentiment that it could arguably be the greatest console ever!
