  1. Don't you lot ever accuse me of being unable to show impartiality. With the final article up, I'm now gonna thank everyone who nominated and voted for games and gave their thoughts on them throughout the past 22 weeks. Couldn't have done it without you and now we finally have a consensus on what are the best games for all eternity. Hooray for world peace! But big massive thanks to @S.C.G for being the guy behind getting the damn articles up in the first place. I might have written them, but I still don't know how to get them on the site. Also, he made those nifty game banners. Speaking of banners, gonna thank @RedShell for taking care of the article banners and sidebox images. Those sidebox images are worth looking at, there's some gold in there. And finally, thanks to @Dcubed for arguing with me over what restrictions should be placed on each console. You would not believe how much we disagreed on Link's Awakening DX.
  2. At some point you have to draw the line and punish people for being completely insane. I've finally made a new level. Weeks with no inspiration and then @Dcubed said something stupid and I immediately had the concept down. Oscar worthy story telling in this one. I'll wait patiently for my reward.
  3. Astral Chain -- August 30th 2019

    It's like the opposite of that "Can I pet the dog?" Twitter account.
  4. N-Europe Mario Kart League 2019

    Hope you don't mind the GP3 results being above the GP2 ones. Uses less space. Been a while since I pointed out that these results are before recalculation and don't include any Champion's Bonuses. Next League Night: 5th September 8pm Room 1: @BowserBasher is host @Glen-i @BowserBasher @viceview51 @martinist @RedShell Good news! I finally got off of my butt and redone all of the character squares. No more renders of characters on karts, slick face icons for everyone! I've even got seperate squares for each of the different Yoshies and Shy Guys for any future use. All the font has been homogenised as well, so no random white font for no reason. I've also done the same with the font for the vehicle part squares. Shut up, it totally matters! Sign up Now!
  5. N-Europe Mario Kart League 2019

    It's like you people love wasting Red Shells! Anyway, @Dcubed...
  6. Switch eShop Thread

    Well, at least it's not a September release.
  7. Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix (2020)

    @Ugh first aid is going to flip over this.
  8. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Finishing Touch probably isn't the best move to use in Stamina mode, seeing as it only does 1% damage. Thanks for the matches guys.

    Room's open now!

  12. That would leave it in the 700-ish region. Which is a ridiculously large amount of Pokémon to fit in one region. For comparisons sake. Sun/Moon had 385 different Pokemon you could catch in Alola. And only 301 of them had an actual Pokédex entry what with a full National Dex being unavailable for the player to obtain. I'd be amazed if Sword and Shield has more than 649. (The amount of Pokémon you could catalogue in Black and White) Especially if @Serebii's hunch about problems transferring Pokémon models to the Switch engine is right.
  13. I take it you're referring to the game telling you what's "Super Effective" or not? While I still think it'd be preferable to have that toggable for a story play through, I'm fine with it as a feature for when I play competitively. That said, information about the state of battle was low-key the best QoL feature Sun/Moon introduced. Not having to remember how long weather, terrain, Trick Room, etc. has been going on is really useful. The irony here is that Sword and Shield will almost definitely have less Pokémon available than Black and White did.
  14. Mario Kart Tour (mobile)

    Most mobile games are designed to be played with one hand.
  15. General Switch Discussion

    Sometimes, I just don't have the time or energy to commit to a long session on one game. Sometimes, I just want to boot up Hyrule Warriors and chip away towards 100% completion. I tend to have a selection of games I'm playing at any one time. Like, right now, the main big game I'm playing through is Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon for the 2nd time. But when I don't feel like pouring hours into that, I have a mixture of Hyrule Warriors Legends, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 and Theatrhythm: Curtain Call.
  16. Astral Chain -- August 30th 2019

    Get a room, you two.
  17. Astral Chain -- August 30th 2019

    Yep, that's the main reason it's likely to outsell Astral Chain. Despite me literally never hearing of it until two days ago.
  18. I was watching him play that level and remember saying near the start of it "Baby Face is gonna be right at the 1-up." We both might have done a little cheer when he found it.
  19. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    That Zelda finish was so slick, I couldn't help but have a big smile on my face. Not to mention that perfectly aimed Star Rod.
  20. Should also point out that you get a special spirit in Smash Ultimate for playing this demo.
  21. Tetris 99 -- Available Today

    The Fire Emblem event is on now. And yes, the songs don't quite fit Tetris, which is a good thing in my eyes.
  22. N-Europe Mario Kart League 2019

    Next League Night: 29th August 8pm Room 1: @BowserBasher is host @Glen-i @BowserBasher @viceview51 @martinist End of the month, so it's player's choice. With a non-traditional Coin Runners, Frantic Items thrown in at the end. Sign up Now!
  23. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Thanks for the one-on-ones. Some proper tense matches in there once the connection improved.
  24. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Well, that was certainly something!
