  1. Nintendo Treehouse Live: 10th July 2020

    Disappointing this is just Paper Mario and a WayForward title. Nintendo must be sitting on more stuff that would've otherwise been getting the Treehouse Live treatment in June...
  2. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    I swear I had absolutely no idea that was a thing, I'd only modified that stage recently (it used to be setup in a way that obscured the characters) and so hadn't done any testing on it. When I noticed that you and @Glen-i couldn't get out of Isabelle's attack though, well, I just had to take advantage of the situation.
  3. Got some catching up to do! Day 7 - Favourite ranged combat: Time Crisis II. Played the hell out of this game back in the good old arcade days and it was always a great laugh, especially when playing with others. Day 8 - Best musical moment: I am Impact! from Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon . The finest musical moment in video game history! Day 9 - Scariest moment: The entirety of Alien Isolation. Played this game in surround sound and it was absolutely terrifying! Day 10 - Credits sequence: Man, this is a tough one! There are just so many, but I think it'll have to be the credits for MadWorld.
  4. Not me either, I only had time to shop and water flowers.
  5. Day 5 - 3D platformer: Super Mario 64. Lazy copy and paste from the N-E Top Ten N64 Games: Day 6 - Most relaxing navigation: Endless Ocean. Not played this in quite some time now, but I remember it being unbelievably relaxing to play (apart from those eerie sections in the abyss of course ) and the navigation was a big part of that. Slowly swimming around underwater alongside a plethora of different sea life, it doesn't get much more relaxing than that.
  6. For favourite villain I think I'll go with, Uncle Rupee: A conniving and unbelievably greedy character who also happens to look hilarious. Although I'd also quite like to use him for best boss battle too, so I may have already failed on hard mode unless I can come up with something else for that category. BTW, for those not familiar with Uncle Rupee, please enjoy this 12 year old YouTube video presented in glorious 240p quality:
  7. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (March 2020)

    Oh poo, no I didn't. Hang on, can you still do that with Nook Miles stuff?
  8. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (March 2020)

    I’m actually in tears right now. Anyway, have ordered the Godzilla statue for you and @BowserBasher, will post ‘em tomorrow.

    Heads-up fellow Villagers, be sure to check out the seasonal section of Nook Shopping as there are some additional items to obtain there. The Summer-solstice crown and Winter-solstice sweater, available until next Monday. And an otherwise exclusive item for Japan, Bamboo grass, available until the 31st.
  10. Local multiplayer for me is undoubtedly Wii Sports. What it managed to achieve in that area is nothing short of miraculous! Literally anyone could play it. A local multiplayer video game revolution.
  11. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    So for those with the fighters pass, what are your initial thoughts on Min Min? Having played quite a few matches against her now, she seems like a very strong character, but also very technical. The way she can edge guard is particularly interesting, but there’s definitely some vulnerability there too when charging strong attacks, I managed to connect with several Falcon punches in the N-E games yesterday that I don’t think I’d have got away with against other characters. Also, do all of her moves allow you to adjust the arm angle, or only some of them? When I was using Kirby, it didn’t seem possible to bend the arm on the neutral B attack, is that the same for Min Min?
  12. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (March 2020)

    Slightly better conditions on my island: So happy they added this feature back. I also have Gulliver today! And not in pirate form, which is interesting. Perhaps it’s random as to which version shows up. Anyway, I’m glad, as it’s another chance to get a Lucky cat!
  13. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Wow! Min Min is tough! The fact she can edge guard from the middle of the stage is pretty damn scary too. Anyway, thanks for the games.

    You wouldn’t need to wait until tomorrow as the island rating is constantly being updated, so you can check with Isabelle right away, any time you make changes. As I said earlier on when visiting your island though, I think there’s a good chance you will be on 5 stars (once you clean up) as you have lots of flowers around, and they definitely seem to be one of the most influential factors for a perfect rating. The first time I reached 5 stars I used A LOT of furniture to do so, but now I have very few outdoor decorations and instead have loads of flowers (all over the highest level of my island) keeping the 5 star rating in place. But hang on a second!... I’d completely forgotten about this, but a while back I read about how it’s possible (but also very rare) to get a lily of the valley on your island while still at a 4 star rating. In which case that’s almost certainly what has happened on your island too, Sméagol!
  15. I’m going to go with The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for opening section. Was completely blown away by the atmosphere when I first played it, the rain/lightning, the music, sneaking into the castle... soooo good. That entire segment (up to the Sanctuary) is an absolute master class in how to commence a game.
