    Man, I'm glad you pointed that one out. Because that one's almost as bad! You can't convince me for one second that the target audience wouldn't be able to recognise Zelda's N64 model! Nuh-uh! Not buying that!

    I can't be the only one who's bothered by Ness being there? He's about as relevant to the N64 as Samus is!
  3. Not everyone wants to catch the train to Floozyville.
  4. Thanks to @Dcubed for this logo, and @RedShell for the original design! It's the N-Europe Mario Kart League Get Together! With the upcoming Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Pass dropping in less then a week, I'm sure those of us getting it would love an excuse to put it to use, and what better excuse then to play online with other N-Europe members? The idea is that once a week, we'll get together to have some good old fashioned races, and some battles now and again. Unlike the previous League, scores will not be kept track of, so you're free to take part without worrying about your performance. For obvious reasons, you will need a Nintendo Switch Online account to take part. However, you do not need the expansion pack. You also do not need the MK8DX Booster Pass to take part, as only one person in the room needs it (I have it). As of today, it's not certain whether people without the pass can vote for any of the new tracks it has. I will update the thread once we get that information. You also need to add me and BowserBasher as a friend on your Switch, if you haven't already. Friend Codes are as follows: Glen-i - 3034-9087-7910 Simon (BowserBasher) - 8313-9234-5620 A few general rules to keep in mind: Unless stated otherwise, each session will take place on Thursday at 8pm, GMT. Each session will consist of 12 seperate races/battles. This normally takes around 45-60 minutes, so take that into account. Players Choice Nights will allow everyone to vote for whatever track they want to race on. The format will be 150cc, Normal Items. For the sake of variety, avoid voting for a track that the group has already raced on that night. No-one wants to do Baby Park 12 times. Every 3-4 weeks, I will impose a "Theme Night", where everyone must stick to the tracks that have been pre-selected. The cc format and item pool may be changed as well. I will post a graphic showing this information before hand. Discord group for voice chatting purposes.

    It's nice to see that talk of focusing more on multiplatform releases bearing some fruit so quickly. Now come on, Square. Golden opportunity here. Get those on the Switch 2 launch window and you'll make bank! That one's free. In fact, I'll pay you to do that!
  6. Anyone else seen this game making the rounds lately? It's gotten quite a few great reviews, and after playing through 3 chapters, I can see why. Utterly intriguing, and I can't wait to delve deeper. It's a narrative-driven game, with some light puzzle solving elements. Kinda? I'm not entirely sure, it's strange, and trippy, and has people who previously worked in Theatre and Performance Art working on it, aiming to tell a story that only the medium of games can tell. Runs great on Switch too! 60 FPS with only slight dips from time to time. I know I posted the trailer above, but if this remotely interests you, I'd recommend trying to go in blind. It's £16.75, but it's 10% off at the moment.
  7. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Sorry about the last match, that was on my end, internet just went down randomly. Still, got one Terryific match in there at least.
  8. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Just missed out. It's joint 19th alongside Snake and Banjo. Here's a page with the full list.
  9. Yes, yes, yes, and hell no!
  10. Doctor Who

    I'm not sure if I prefer it to The Devil's Chord, but it's damn close!
  11. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Right, theme time! Super Heavyweight Tier I wanted to name it "Super Heavyweight Class". but there's only space for 22 characters in Arena titles... Much like that time I made a theme based around the lightest characters in the game, this time we're playing with the 18 heaviest characters in Smash Ultimate. It's based on the Classic route for King K.Rool, which is odd, because he's actually the second heaviest character. Miis are not allowed, and if you play as Pokémon Trainer, you're only allowed to use Charizard. Remember, you can press Y after selecting them to choose which Pokémon you start with. Stages generally match games the characters appear in, except Ike and Incineroar, who have no appropriate stages, so I just gave them the more vague Fire Emblem and Pokémon stages there. Items follow a similar philosophy. Except Sandbag, because that has an actual weight, and it's actually heavier then most of the characters pictured. Format - 3 Stock, 10 minutes FS Meter - On See you at 7:30!
  12. Any game that rewards preorders with being able to play the game a week early? Also, shout out to the Duke Nukem Forever: Special Edition, for having the gall to include Duke Nukem Forever in it.
  13. Report a Bug! [Read OP first]

    Well, I clicked the thread on that sidebar thing, and it took about 10 seconds for me to get here, so there you go. EDIT: And just to make sure, loaded ResetEra, and it was practically instant. Something's up.
  14. Your 2024 Gaming Diary

    Theatrhythm Final Bar Line: Premium Digital Deluxe Edition is a rhythm game developed by indieszero that released on the Switch and PS4 last year. It's the fourth Theatrhythm game to focus on the Final Fantasy series (There's also a Dragon Quest and Kingdom Hearts one). Effectively, it's an enhanced version of the Japan-only arcade game "Theatrhythm All-Star Carnival". Theatrhythm's gameplay is pretty similar to most arcade style rhythm games. A bunch of icons fly towards 4 circles on one side of the screen, and you need to input button presses and stick tilts in time to whatever song is playing. It's pretty standard stuff, but the thing that differentiates Theatrhythm from similar games is that the game asks you to build a party of up to 4 characters from the Final Fantasy series. You see, while you're playing the game, these 4 characters fight monsters in the background. The better you do, the more effectively they fight. Just like most RPG's, these characters can level up, and learn skills to make your life easier. This is kind of the brilliant thing about Theatrhythm, no matter how bad you might be at rhythm games, the party system provides you ways to clear songs other then just "Getting good". If you're struggling, you can just put healers in your party and use their healing skills to help you survive through the whole song. Contrary to what 8-Bit Theater claims, 4 White Mages will work! That said, the game has a scoring system, which the party system has no effect on, so you might be able to brute force a clear, but your score will only be good if you're good. It's genius and serves to make it very accessible to all players. This is helped by every single song (Over 400 in the base game, over 500 if you get all the DLC) having at least 3 difficulty settings, from "Anyone can do this" Basic, to "Some dexterity required" Ultimate. However, some songs have a fourth difficulty called Supreme, and yeahhh... That's the easiest song! Proper spaghetti fingers going on there. I can't believe I pulled off 9.8 million points here! Speaking of, the game has a bunch of "Feats". Basically they're achievements, except some of them are way harder then the crummy trophies on the PS4 version. This is why it took me 600 hours to pull it off. A rhythm game obviously needs good music, and well, this is Final Fantasy, it's kinda known for amazing music (And Final Fantasy XIII is also there). It also has songs from some of the spin-off games, like Mystic Quest! The DLC then introduces songs from non Final Fantasy games like Octopath Traveler and Chrono Trigger. An absolute treasure trove of music is here, and it's insanely good value! This game's amazing, and despite reaching 100% completion, I'll still be playing this for a long time.

    6 is the best one, and that's that.
  16. General Switch Discussion

    Hopefully, they fix their horrendous mistake and make Boo playable again. It's endlessly funny!
  17. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    Player's Choice tonight at 8pm.
  18. Mario Land is still the weirdest Mario game. As Brawl In The Family demonstrated so well.
  19. A bit different when it has the subtitle "NES Edition", though, isn't it? If they weren't at least floating the idea around, surely, it would've just been called Nintendo World Championships?
  20. Vampire Survivors

    Ah, right. Something I realised yesterday is that Weapon Power-Up, while not using up a slot, still needs a passive slot to be free. So you have to wait until it shows up before filling all 6 passive slots. Also, it only appears if you have a Contra weapon in the first place, but I'm sure you knew that already.
  21. General Gaming Sales/Charts Discussion

    Rebirth's lukewarm sales seem to have finally got it in S-E's head that "Hey, maybe exclusivity deals will be unprofitable in the long run?" Now we just need to convince not to cop out on Nintendo consoles by lumping them with cloud versions of games the console can easily handle. (Yes, I'm still salty about that Kingdom Hearts collection)
  22. Vampire Survivors

    BTW, I highly recommend Emergency Meeting. The weapons there are way wackier then any other DLC. Kill enemies with Crappy ID Cards, Airvents, and Counting! Oh my!
  23. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

    I can't wait until I get hit by this feeling when the next mainline Pokémon comes along! That one's gonna really sting for me...
  24. Glover - All N64 Games

    Today, I learned that there's people out there who, despite being alive during the N64 era, were not aware of the Buck Bumble title theme. Best fix that, just in case you're not the only one. Wait, what? Hang on... Huh. So, when going to get this theme, I just found out that the composer uploaded the full version to YouTube. A month ago... Creepy timing, that.
  25. Vampire Survivors

    Welp, I've done it. I became so godly powerful during a run, the poor Switch couldn't handle it, and the game crashed! So which character did it? Was it that super secret one that's purposely overpowered? A strong one hocked up on thousands of eggs? Nope, Sheena from the Contra DLC, with no eggs what so ever! So, a bit of context. Sheena's gimmick, apart from the one all Contra characters have, is that if you upgrade her movement speed, her weapon cooldown also decreases a bit. This gets ridiculous when you combine it with Empty Tome, giving her 90% cooldown naturally! Halfway through Mad Forest, I got to the point where I could've easily stood still and nothing could touch me, but where's the fun in that? Yep, this was me But yeah, it crashed shortly after the 30 minute mark. A bit annoying because the run didn't count, but still, I feel accomplished now. Probably won't stack Wings with Empty Tome with this character again though...
