  1. Some of the games are only on sale in the US eShop, including Firewatch.
  2. N-Europe Mario Kart League 2019

    Yeah, kinda forgot that you still only get coins 99% of the time when in first place, even with Mushrooms only. I think @Glen-i got a good view of me trying to take a shortcut on the first lap of Sweet Sweet Canyon... with a coin. Also, all I can hear at the moment is Toad and Toadette screaming. It's like the worst form of tinnitus ever.
  3. Yoshi's Crafted World (2019 - Switch)

    Damn. Cheers for the reply though. BTW, who are you reviewing for, if you don't mind me asking?
  4. Yoshi's Crafted World (2019 - Switch)

    How's the soundtrack? Seems to be an area that's inferior to Woolly World. Also, is the music at the beginning of this trailer in the game? That groove is slick! Has got to be the work of Kazumi Totaka. Anyway, I wasn't so impressed with the demo version. There's also something about the look of this game that doesn't quite sit right with me. It's difficult to pinpoint, but I think it's the lighting. The game obviously has a cute and colourful style, yet somehow it appears kind of dark at times or too contrasty.

    They just toned it down for the direct. The game is still violent and gory as seen in the latest trailer. As for whether it'll have an option in-game, or that less violent footage was specifically created for the direct by the dev, we'll have to wait and see. Personally, I'm not fussed either way. As long as I get to kick basket balls at people's faces, I'm good:
  6. Cadence of Hyrule (Spring 2019)

    Slight difference between giving their IP to an indie dev compared to Koei Tecmo and Capcom.
  7. The Google Console

    True. But at least with the way things are now (regardless of physical or digital) as long as the hardware survives, the games and their patches do as well. With something like Stadia the consumer doesn’t have ownership of the games or the hardware! Whenever Google or a developer decide to pull the plug, that’s it.
  8. RAD

    Here’s hoping this really will be rad. Off to a good start with the 80s vibe/soundtrack.

    New trailer: I neeeeeed this!
  10. The Google Console

    So I really don't know what to make of this. On the one hand (if it truly does work as intended) it's an incredible technical achievement and very clever. But it's also... kind of terrible... and actually a bit scary. I mean if this were to take off in a big way, well, it pretty much feels like the beginning of the end for the video game industry we all know and love. And although we've known that this type of all-digital future was inevitable, seeing it start to materialise like this is still kind of jarring. When Dylan Cuthbert appeared on the stage I was once again reminded of what happened to The Tomorrow Children and how Sony just one day decided to delete it. A game that never had a physical release, was only playable online, completely wiped from existence! What's to stop that kind of thing from happening with titles on Stadia? Nothing at all, that's what. Game preservation is basically completely down the toilet once we reach this point, and that is not cool at all. Anyway, it's all very intriguing and I'm interested in exactly how Google plan to handle the business side of things, whether it'll be purely a subscription service or if games can be purchased individually. I'm guessing it'll require both though, similar to how all the console makers now charge separately for online play. I suppose we'll find out at E3.
  11. Blaster Master Zero 2

    Duuuuuuuude! You don't know what you're missing... Nothing at all like that. But it is good.
  12. Konami 50th Anniversary Collection Series

    Where the Mystical Ninja Collection at!?
  13. Blaster Master Zero 2

    Well, if I wasn't currently playing through Guacamelee 2 right now I'd probably join you, but yeah... definitely want to finish that before I start something else. I did very much enjoy the first Blaster Master Zero on Switch though, so this is on the watch list. The first game had some awesome HD Rumble implementation, so I hope they make good use of it in this one too.
  14. I know, right? Get the feeling that the success of Sonic Mania might have been very influential here. But yeah, great stuff if it means potential for more of this kind of thing going forward. Get those franchises that Nintendo don’t want to revisit themselves in the hands of developers that most certainly do! With proper curation and control it should be win-win for everyone.
  15. I gave the original a go, just didn’t (or rather, couldn’t) finish it. Hopefully this version will be more playable to me, it’s certainly going to look and sound better at least. Pretty amazing just how open Nintendo have become with their IP though.
