  1. 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. Wii Shortlist
  2. Yeah, kinda forgot to do my last day reminder. So I'm gonna delay the deadline one more day. @GenericAperson, @Vanilla, @Dcubed, @Vileplume2000 and @killthenet are the people who nominated games but haven't voted yet. And a casual reminder that anyone can vote, even if they didn't nominate any games.
  3. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    OK, I need to swap to handheld, so the room will be disconnected for a bit, but I'll open it again straight away.
  4. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Room's open now.
  5. N-Europe Mario Kart League 2019

    Yeah, sorry. There was no internet where I was yesterday, so I couldn't post the theme and tell everyone I couldn't make it.
  6. It's the Mario Kart League 2019! What is the Mario Kart League? Simply put, it's a weekly meet-up of N-Europe members to play some Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and then shout at each other afterwards. I suppose we could also find out who the best racer is as well. The League is split up into two halves throughout the year. How do I sign up? Post a comment declaring yourself IN! for each week that you'll be able to play. League Nights generally take place every Thursday at 8pm (GMT). Please try to enter the room 15 minutes before that time if possible. If you have declared yourself IN! but then can't make a night, please inform me on this thread before the league night starts. People who frequently pull a no-show with no notice may be penalised. There is an "Always IN!" List for people who don't want to bother declaring themselves IN! every week. Please mention me (@Glen-i) in this thread if you want to be in this list. What do I need to know about League Nights? There are generally two types of League Nights. Player's Choice nights allow players to freely choose what vehicle they use and what tracks are played on. Even though you can choose the track on these nights, please try your best to not choose a track that has already been raced on that night. No-one wants to do Rainbow Road 12 times. Theme Nights dictate a specific vehicle setup and track order that must be followed. Each night consists of 3 GP's, making for a total of 12 races. Please allow 45 to 60 minutes of your time to take part. It is advisable that you add mine and @BowserBasher's friend code before taking part. (Glen-i - 3034-9087-7910 BowserBasher - 8313-9234-5620) How are the points calculated? After each GP, the points you earned will be recalculated by me using this formula. (Total points divided by Number of Players multiplied by 12) Your grand total is divided by the number of GP's you've taken part in, giving you an average score that will determine your placing in the league. This means that even if you miss a night, your score will not be affected, but your placing may change depending on changes in other people's scores. In GP's that utilise Battle Mode, the points you earn are determined by your place, not the amount of points you got. If your total attendance is below 50% at the end of the year, your score will be discounted from the final results. What are Team Nights? Once a month (Except January), there will be one night where the players will be split into two teams. On these nights, the current top two players will be designated the Team Leaders. Everyone else should send me a Private Message saying what team they want to be in. Your choice must remain secret. If one team has way more members than the other, I will ask the leaders to choose who gets moved to the other side. Your points are still mainly determined by your placing, so you still want to come in 1st. The team that has the highest total score on each GP will get an extra 10 points. What is the Champion's Bonus? In an attempt to level the playing field, I am introducing the Champion's Bonus. In each GP, beating either of the two previous Mario Kart League Champions (Glen-i and RedShell) will earn you 5 points. Beating both of them will get you 10 points. This bonus doesn't apply on Team Nights. Any other Rules I should know about? Theme Nights must be followed. However, if you don't have the right vehicle part, let me know as soon as possible. I will try to find an alternative part that has the same stats. During Player's Choice nights, please do not choose a track that has already been raced on that night, it's only polite. Do not rage quit, if I start to notice people "disconnecting" regularly, you may be penalised. If you do disconnect, rejoin the room as soon as possible. You will earn one point for that race. But I'd be willing to discount that GP's score if it would result in lowering your average score. But don't take the mick. Be aware that discounting a GP will affect your total attendance. Remember to let me or the host know if you can't make the night as soon as you can. Have fun! And feel free to show off your hilarious (Or skillful) moments with the Switch video capture! Theme Night Suggestions If you have a suggestion for a Theme Night, please send me a PM with the details and I'll try to implement it. Thanks to @RedShell for the new logo!
  7. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Who's up for Smash? Stock at 8pm?
  8. Resident Evil 4, Remake and 0 heading to Switch.

    There you go, now you get it.
  9. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    My guess is that it's because Garchomp is close to the most popular Gen 4 Pokémon ever. Also, do the likes of Dragonite, Salamence or Tyranitar have a similar cost? Because Garchomp is in the same family of base 600 stat Psuedo-Legendaries.
  10. Switch eShop Thread

    If you didn't know what game it was, how the hell would you know what it is just by looking? It's the cardinal sin of Switch icons. It's also a lazily grabbed screenshot of the title screen, the brief moment before the title appears. Have a look at the middle, where Leon's stomach is. See how it look's a bit singed? That was a kind of visual effect that reveals the title in-game. Here, it looks crap. What makes this even worse is that other Resident Evil games have really nice Switch icons. Geez, they couldn't even bother to capitalise the title above it! Ewww.
  11. Yep, dreadful game. Monkey Ball deserves better.
  12. Switch eShop Thread

    Even if they added gyro control support, I wouldn't get it because of that icon. It's actually gross.
  13. Literally one point clinched it. If it didn't get that, the number 2 game would have won through my tie breaker. Number 3 was only two points behind EBA, if I could vote, that would have won instead. It was crazy how close the DS list was.
  14. Not sure I should make a new thread for this and this seems the most appropriate place for it. Here's a BBC article looking at examples of parents getting blindsided by kids buying exploitative microstransactions. It's all too easy for less tech-savvy parents to fall victim to this. Tom Watson has stated that games that use these microstransactions are a "Gateway to Gambling" and I agree with him.
  15. That's precisely what these kind of games aim for. Did you watch a recent Jimquisition where it somewhat focused on a presentation by a game developer into how to invest people into a free-to-play game? Honestly disturbing.
  16. Rocket League

    Sorry, I probably won't be able to. The Switch I play Rocket League on is being commandeered for other games tonight.
  17. Tetris 99 -- Available Today

    I'd be amazed if there wasn't a future opportunity to get it.
  18. Tetris 99 -- Available Today

    Splatoon theme get. Never actually got to top ten this time, but that's cool. I'll still probably use the Game Boy theme the most.
  19. Damn straight. You haven't lived until you've gone through Other M on hard mode.
  20. Didn't realise you were so adverse to fun.
  21. Any game/app that involved drawing (Especially the Art Academy series) was infinitely better on the XL screen.
  22. Nominations are now closed Our Wii Shortlist consists of 19 games. Voting must be done via Private Messages sent to me. This will help to prevent any possible tactical voting. You must choose 3 games and order them from your favourite to least favourite. 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. Voting closes on the 20th of July
  23. Tetris 99 -- Available Today

    BTW, the Splatoon event has started now.
  24. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    It's the last time I put amiibo's on, that's for sure.
