  1. Well I was replying to someone who was saying that the cover legendaries from Gen 4 onwards were not good. I forgot to clarify that Zekrom is the best out of that lot. Which is true. Reshiram would be up there too if it didn't have the unfortunate "Questionable Blaziken Hair" Nothing beats Groudon. @RedShell, because it's a cute cover legendary. That big lug is adorable!
  2. READ THIS BEFORE POSTING! So @S.C.G pretty much came up with this idea, I'm just refining and organising it. It's time to find out what N-Europe thinks are the absolute must-have games for each of Nintendo's consoles. Over the next lot of months, I'm going to be asking you all to help me with this very important task by nominating and voting for games to come up with a conclusive agreement that will be set in stone for the rest of time. Or until another person decides to make a top 10 list, but that never happens! Here's how it goes down. Each console will take up two weeks, one for nominations and one for the final votes. Week 1 - Nominations All you have to do is select 5 games for your nomination. You must select exactly 5 games, no more, no less. Do not order your games from best to worst. Just list them. There's no need to explain your choices here. Once a week has passed, I'll tally all the nominations and the ones that get the most nominations will determine the shortlist for the following week. Week 2 - Final Voting Voting must be done via Private Messages sent to me. This will help to prevent any possible tactical voting. Everyone will get a number of votes to choose their favourite game(s) from the shortlist. The number of votes will be determined by how many people took part in the nominations. It'd be great if you could explain why you chose a game in the PM. I can then use these in the article that will go up on the N-Europe front page. I will abstain from these votes and act as a tiebreaker. If two games tie, I'll decide which game comes out on top. Once a week passes, I'll put up an article with the results on the front page and we'll move on to the next console. Have you got it? Great. Then let's get started. Here are the articles for the completed Top Tens.
  3. Cadence of Hyrule

    Yep, gonna agree with @Hero-of-Time on this. Use fixed beat to get a handle on how enemies move and then when you understand it a bit more, switch it back and try it to the beat. The hardest part about this is remembering how to tackle enemies while constantly moving. Still try to move to the beat in fixed beat when you feel it's safe to try it, but pause when you need more time.
  4. Rocket League

    They can, in fact, @Sofiz plays on Steam and it works wonderfully. The only downside is that you can't see Switch players profile icons, so you can't look at my beautiful Mii whenever I score. You'll have to register Switch owners as friends in-game to join their parties though. Get to the main menu and open the friends menu, it's an icon of two people at the bottom right. Somewhere in one of those tabs is an option that says something like "Register Friend via RocketID" Once you do that, you'll need to add that persons RocketID. I think you need to get your own ID first, that can be done from the friends list as well. Mine is Gleni#5212 (Make sure you let me know your ID, I've already got a few people trying to add me and I generally don't add random people on online games) And once I've accepted it, I can invite you to a party just like any of my Switch friends.
  5. Back before E3 started, I wrote an article about some common criticisms Pokémon faces nowadays. In the process, I inadvertently revived a long missing aspect of N-E articles, so I present to you... N-Eaction: Pokémon Gotta Criticise 'em All! Thanks to @S.C.G for helping get it up and @RedShell for the um... appropriate images. I'd like to hear some of your thoughts on what I cover in there. Well, maybe not that particular topic. I think there's been enough discussion on that one.
  6. Cadence of Hyrule

    Credits just rolled for me. I can imagine that final boss being really hard for people who never played Necrodancer. It demands a lot of attention. Great game, would play again. Gleeokenspiel is a marvelous punny boss with sweet music. Although it's a shame there's no way to play through the whole thing as Cadence... At least the shopkeeper from Necrodancer is in it and is still the best character in the game. But I think I preferred him when he sang to the tune instead of singing harmony. So good.
  7. Yeah, that's a strange case. They're originally GBA games, but those GBA versions were Japan exclusive. So for this console, I'm allowing them. Because that's the first version that got released over here.
  8. Rocket League

    I second @Sofiz's idea of naming that sport "Explodey Squareball".
  9. Rocket League

    Be thankful I made the ball large.
  10. Rocket League

    OK, one more match for me. EDIT: I call that one "Super Bouncy Ball"
  11. Rocket League

    After this game, we'll play some silly modifier matches.
  12. Rocket League

    Ok, seriously who am I and what have I done with Glen-i? 7-0, wow!
  13. Rocket League

    I'll go ahead and open a room now.
  14. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Here's my third video of people from my local community centre faffing about in Smash. Includes 5-player matches, a kid who really likes playing as Zelda and a glitch!
  15. Rocket League

    Yeah, go on then. Might have to be 8:30 for me though. Still need to eat dinner.
  16. Funny Stuff Thread

    Your image link is broken. I need to know how purple it tastes!
  17. Oh right, here's a list of DS games for you to look through. Be careful not to pick a game that's banned from nomination.
  18. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    What, immediately? I thought we had to wait a while for that to happen.
  19. General Switch Discussion

    You're not playing Kirby & The Rainbow Curse with that.
  20. God damn it! I thought this was some sudden announcement! Disappointment draws near...
  21. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Let's just say I have a newfound hatred for Abra.
  22. Right, here are my nominations. Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky Pokémon Black/White Pokémon Black 2/White 2 Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story
  23. Voting is now closed. Nintendo DS Boy, that original DS sure was ugly. Yet, that didn't stop Nintendo's first dual-screened console from absolutely dominating the handheld market during its lifetime. The double screen nature of the DS provided a variety of new possibilities for games, whether it be quality of life improvements or imaginative new gameplay mechanics, the DS has some of the more unique titles in gaming history, but are any of them good enough to get into N-Europe's Top Ten? Here are the restrictions. Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team is not eligible for nomination because it's a simultaneous release with the GBA title Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team. Pokemon Clause applies (Pokemon Pearl/Diamond/Platinum, Black/White, Black 2/White 2, etc.) Nominations for any of the three Pokémon Mystery Dungeon titles made for the DS (Not Blue Rescue Team) will all be counted as a nomination for Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky. Explorers of Sky makes the other two completely redundant. Remakes/Ports are banned. (Kirby Super Star Ultra, Super Mario 64 DS, Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver, Four Swords Anniversary Edition, Chrono Trigger, etc.) Remakes that are radically different include Final Fantasy IV and Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals Resident Evil: Deadly Silence is the first time that the original version of the PS1 version of Resident Evil was released on a Nintendo console, so is eligible for nomination. Retro compilations are banned. Four Swords Clause applies to Contra 4 and any other games that include retro games as bonus. DSi Ware games are eligible for nomination. Applications are not eligible for nomination. (Flipnote Studio, Art Academy, Electroplankton, etc.) Nominations close on the 29th of June List of Nintendo DS titles

    OK, I'm tired now. Thanks for the games!
