  1. General Retro Discussion

    Just got around to reading this. This sounds like Gourmet Race, one of the 6 main games in Kirby Super Star. It sounds like you didn't figure out how to actually run in Kirby Super Star. You need to quickly tap the D-pad twice, holding it on the second press to start running. That should make it possible. Kirby Super Star is a great co-op game. Gourmet Race is single player only, but the rest of the game can be 2 player co-op. It's not crazy hard like Contra, so it's a lot more fun. One of the best co-op games on the SNES. A lot of those games are available on the SNES app on Switch if you have an online account. Which means Kirby Dream Course (That Kirby Golf game) can be played online with someone on your friend list.
  2. @Kav one thing to mention is that you need to edit the first post in this thread in order to change the title.
  3. Logic Randomisers??

    2 Triforce shards down, Bombs, Deku Leaf and Bow acquired. Wind Waker is now an epic Robin Hood archery game due to having no sword. The lack of a Spoils Bag and Bait Bag is starting to become an issue. I have all this stuff I can't give to people because I can't set Joy Pendants to a bloody button! Anyway, after doing pretty much every platform now, the first wallet upgrade is finally found. You'd be surprised how much being able to hold 1000 rupees opens up. Gonna take a break there now because I wouldn't carry on while @Dcubed sleeps.
  4. Is 8pm (half an hour from this post) good for you?
  5. Logic Randomisers??

    Well, @Dcubed and I have started our second attempt on Wind Waker Randomiser. We've managed to get the three Goddess Pearls and the Magic Armour. Not got a single actual weapon, but we did get a Bomb Bag upgrade. That doesn't actually count as getting the bombs, mind you. So we can carry 60 bombs, but can't actually pick up any bombs. Why yes, that does make no sense. Anyway, we were running out of places and having to start relying on the dreaded platforms before getting the boomerang. (First one we tried had Nayru's Pearl, because of course it did) And then we suddenly remembered that Tower of the Gods has an accessible chest without weapons! So we go pick it up and lo and behold! The Grappling Hook! That's opened a lot of possibilities! Now we're Treasure Charting the crap out of this ocean! This is a very silly way to play the game!
  6. N-Europe Mario Kart 8 DX League 2020

    Next League Night: 29th October 8pm Room 1: @BowserBasher is host @Glen-i @BowserBasher @martinist @S.C.G @viceview51 Player's choice will be next week, because Halloween is closing in. As the picture suggests, you're free to choose either King Boo, Dry Bowser or Dry Bones. Anyway, they're all dead, so you can't throw items around. Poltergeists aren't real. Mushrooms only will help you get places quicker and haunt lots of different places.
  7. It's the Mario Kart League 2020! 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 a League, your score will be discounted from the final results. What are Team Nights? Once a month starting from Feburary, there will be one night where the players will be split into two teams. On these nights, 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 each GP, beating the 2017 Mario Kart League Champion, RedShell, will earn you 5 points. Beating the 2018 and 2019 Champion, Glen-i, will get you 10 points (Except RedShell, who will get 5 points for pulling that off) Beating both of them will get you 15 points. This bonus doesn't apply on Team Nights. What is the Loser's Gambit? Starting from the second night onwards, the current lowest placed player can take part in the Loser's Gambit. I will ask this player to nominate another player in secret that they think they can beat. If they beat their chosen player in a GP, they will get bonus points. However, the lower the chosen player is in the league the less points they'll be worth. 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!
  8. N-Europe Mario Kart 8 DX League 2020

    Lots of shenanigans for you!
  9. General Switch Discussion

    Pachter is notorious for being wrong more often than he is right. Whenever he claims something that must be done, it's a surefire way of knowing that the opposite must be done. The guy doesn't know jack about what makes consoles sell.
  10. It is, it's the best thing about the DLC, but I have limited funds and Hyrule Warriors has to take priority at the moment. If only I could join someone else's Dynamax Adventure (Kinda like how people without the DLC can join someone who starts a raid from Isle of Armour), I'd be all up for helping out, but...
  11. Redd is in my town on a day I'm online for once! There's a real Moody Painting and the fakes are the Basic Painting, Quaint Painting and Mystic Statue. I've already got a Moody Painting donated, so someone else can have it.
  12. Your 2020 Gaming Diary

    Because it's spectacularly funny. It's what TV Tropes calls a "Good Bad Bug". It's definitely a programming oversight because some bosses have a weight check that tells the game that moves like Suplex won't work. But that boss doesn't have it for some reason, which results in that. FFVI is a very buggy game. Mostly because of how ambitious it is for a SNES RPG, some of these bugs have the side effect of making the game more entertaining. (Of course, there's some bugs in the SNES version that have negative effects if messed with. The Sketch nonsense springs to mind. I imagine that mod fixes that.)
  13. I haven't actually bought it yet. Hyrule Warriors is higher in my priority list at the moment.
  14. 3DS Console Discussion

    I'm normally free every weekend, but @Dcubed's schedule changes every week, so he'll have to let you know later on in the future.
  15. Your 2020 Gaming Diary

    Here's a Pro Tip, @drahkon If you fought a Stray Cat along the way to Gau, then all you need is that rage. It's crazy useful. (Also flat out broken, in a good way, with the right end game setup)
  16. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Stamina Format tonight at 9pm.
  17. N-Europe Mario Kart 8 DX League 2020

    Promising start. @Dcubed and I got disconnected.
  18. 3DS Console Discussion

    @Vileplume2000, @Dcubed and I would be interested in playing Tri Force Heroes.
  19. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Shenanigan video from the Steve night last week. Includes really stupid looking animation, people playing Minecraft and a magical supersonic block of dirt. I'm Scottish Steve, @BowserBasher is Zombie, @S.C.G was Alex. @Sprout was default Steve, but switched to Isabelle and Kirby (in the three player fights) near the end. The non-Steves are @Nicktendo as Piranha Plant, @LazyBoy as Mega Man and Mr Game & Watch, and @RedShell as everyone else (Including Kirby on Big Blue and 4-player fights).
  20. By this point, if you're surprised that a Nintendo anniversary themed game is limited time only, that's on you. It's been a thing since well before the Switch. Don't fall down the "Mother 3 English release" rabbit hole. Only sadness lies there. It happened with Earthbound Beginnings. Don't let Fire Emblem reignite that fire. @Ike, it's certainly more effort, but there's no denying the similarities of "Old, unreleased NES game gets an English release" between the two.
  21. Argh! You beat me to it! I guess this is the Earthbound Beginnings of the Switch era.
  22. Are you the ultimate Games Master on this dinky little forum? Well then, you better prove it! What is this? Over the next few months, we'll be playing the 46 games in 51 Worldwide Games that can be played online (Except Hare and Hounds, the 47th game, which is too much of an asymmetric game and not completely fair). Once each game has been played, the points you've earned will determine just how good you are! Winner gets an imaginary drink. How do I sign up? Act quick, unlike the Mario Kart League, I can't use average scores to determine your placing. So the sooner you join in, the better. Just state your interest on this board and make sure you join in each week. Game night will take place every Saturday at 8pm (GMT). Try to show up about 5 minutes before hand. If you can't make a night and don't notify me in advance, you will be placed in last place for any game played that night. Depending on the availability of the other players, we may be able to tweak the time of game night to better suit your needs. Inform me on this thread as soon as you can to allow time for discussion. What do I need to know? As of now, there are already 4 people who have said they will be taking part. If you state your interest as the fifth person and no-one else does afterwards, you may not be able to join in most nights because of the odd number of players. In other words, there needs to be an even number of players at all times. If there is an odd number of players, the odd man out may be able to fill in for another player if they can't make a night, but won't be able to fully join in this tournament. I can only apologise in advance if this happens, but that's the nature of these games. Please allow around an hour of your time to take part. If you continually disconnect during a night, you may be penalised. Make sure your connection is somewhat stable. How are matchups determined? During the first Game Night, matchups will be determined randomly. After that, who you play against will depend on your current placing in the Tournament. (For example, 1st place will play against 2nd place in 2-player games) If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Thanks to @Dcubed for the great graphic at the top of the page!
