  1. General Switch Discussion

    Don't know if this should have its own thread? But well, Kingdom of Amalur: Re-Reckoning comes to Switch on March 16th (my birthday!)
  2. General Switch Discussion

    4K? Pff. How about a stable 30-60 FPS in all games? You would actually notice the difference there...
  3. Indie Games

    Moving Out is getting some new, free content - "Moving In"
  4. Hitman III - Cloud Version (Coming Soon)

    Out next week - January 20th!
  5. Switch eShop Thread

    The same developer released Down to Bermuda yesterday which has a 60% discount as well, running until February 12th.
  6. New Pokémon Snap (30th April 2021)

    I had expected that to change when the game was shown again but sadly, no. Snap2 would have been better!
  7. Indie Games

    Finished The Last Campfire just now. While I did like the game initially, I think many of the puzzles were too easy and obvious. The joy of a good puzzle game is the satisfaction of solving a tricky puzzle, and I know it's a hard balance to get byt sadly, many of the puzzles in this are just trivial, the solution obvious and the way to get there was set in stone with only a few possible ways to start them. Moving a box around to make a path, light a candle with a box with fire, make the water sink. Yeah, sure, there were good puzzles but only a handful. It's not bad but if you are a pro puzzler, then there are better puzzle games out there. The story is good, it's telling a tale of death and acceptance in a good and light manner, I liked that.
  8. Pokémon 25th Anniversary

    Here is the full announcement, explaining what Katy Perry is doing here as well as outlining some non-gaming initiatives:
  9. Is that still true here? I hope it is... Edit: Yeah, phew, it's still there. Then the Amiibo is just a fast way to get to it. https://www.imore.com/super-mario-3d-world-bowsers-fury-everything-you-need-know
  10. So Cat Mario is basically Assist Mode behind an amiibo paywall? Yikes.
  11. What Do You Want From Nintendo In 2021?

    I'm on the more new stuff-boat. While I've had plenty to play in 2020 due to indies, I would love a bit more to play from Nintendo themselves.
  12. Was all the footage in the trailer from Bowser's Fury or was there some SM3DW in it as well? Can't remember the levels.
  13. It's not often that we get an announcement of when a new trailer will drop. But excited, I'm looking forward to seeing if Bowser's Fury can warrant another buy from me - I did enjoy the core game very much on Wii U.
  14. The Exercise & Fitness Thread: The Struggle Is Real

    Marathon is 42.2 because, well, 42! But yes, in the US, they don't do science properly so have kept miles, while we here in Europe swear by the metric system. It's a common discussion.
  15. The Exercise & Fitness Thread: The Struggle Is Real

    Experience doesn't matter, it seems. But then you kept 400m - I assume that doesn't mean 6*600 miles? And your goal is still in metric - 5K. Sorry, couldn't help it. But it seems like a good programme, even though it's for very experienced runners - running 6 days a week is tough. I know my feet would be killing me (I have a high arch in my foot - slightly supinated - and thus land with a lot of weight on the front of the foot, causing pain on longer runs and very hard skin that hurts).
  16. The Exercise & Fitness Thread: The Struggle Is Real

    What does 5M, 6M etc. mean? Miles or?
  17. Bravely Default II (2020)

  18. Indie Games

    I'm currently playing The Last Campfire. About 3/5 into the game now and it's chill, relaxing. The puzzles are on the easy side, never spent more than a few minutes and almost always clear them first try. The overworld puzzles are a bit less obvious at times and require a good bit of exploration, which is nice. The game looks good and Ember controls fine (though I could have used that the dash was more a constant run). It shows some technical hiccups, though. It's funny, I've just played Doom Eternal where there was absolutely no frame drops or slowdowns despite being incredibly fast-paced. This, however, has some issues with some stuttering and a second of freezing every minute or so. It doesn't matter but it does seem a bit sloppy. The game is not really good but it's a fine game and I feel it's worth going through it, especially since I got it when it was discounted in December and it's a short game.
  19. Immortals Fenyx Rising (December 3, 2020)

    I regret this decision. :/ Really could have used a good adventure game now.
  20. The Danish government has just announced that everyone who wants to get the vaccine here in Denmark will have got the second dose by June 27th at the latest. That's great! Soon we will have a normal country again (with a new massive debt to mink farmers and other people).
  21. Ouch, a steep price... It's a good game but not worth that much.
  22. This is out on January 14th. A physical edition has been announced, courtesy of Limited Run Games. https://limitedrungames.com/collections/scott-pilgrim-vs-the-world-the-game/products/switch-limited-run-94-scott-pilgrim-vs-the-world-the-game Do they ship to Europe? Or is there a European vendor?
  23. The Exercise & Fitness Thread: The Struggle Is Real

    You do 20 burpees, rest for a short amount of time, then do 19, rest, 18, rest ... All the way to 1 burpee after which the clock stops. It'll be a total of 210 burpees. The other one is also a good one. Suicide burpees. You could do that with any exercise; squats, swings, lunges, running... I think you'd better aim for 200 and then go as far beyond as possible once there. I know someone who did the burpee year challenge. The last couple of months were terrible, I figure. You need to go beyond 300 burpees every day, it would take half an hour every single day. It was impressive following him.
  24. The Exercise & Fitness Thread: The Struggle Is Real

    Got inspired by the burpees and did the famous challenge of 20-19-18-...-2-1 burpees for time. Rest as needed between, I took about 30 seconds between each set in the 10s and then just went with the flow for the remaining sets (between 1 second and 20 seconds I believe). My time was 18:36. When I did it last time it was 19:26 so a nice improvement.
