  1. An hour of video is usually somewhere between 6-7 GB for me, which can then be compressed down to around 1.5 GB while still retaining good quality. I use a very old HDPVR2 and as I mentioned in the staff thread, the device can be a bit flaky now, meaning potential loss of some (or even all) footage. So yeah, it would be best if someone with a more stable capturing setup could take care of recording the gameplay ideally.
  2. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Hilarious stuff as always! Cheers for the games everyone.
  3. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Yep, I usually hear it whenever you pick that stage.
  4. Super Mario Maker 2 -- June 2019

    The play with friends online update has apparently arrived for this, along with some other changes/improvements.
  5. Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training for Switch

    Yeah! Nintendogs and WarioWare DIY next please.
  6. Apple Arcade

    It’s incredibly silly but pretty much guaranteed to make you laugh at some point, so yeah, well worth checking out. I’ve not played much of ChuChu Rocket yet, just the initial stages which seem to be more of a tutorial than anything. Will have to get back to it soon. It’s still all about Cat Quest II for me at the moment. Managed to finish The Pinball Wizard the other day though. The “ending“ was a bit anticlimactic, but the journey to reach the top of the tower was enjoyable. I see. Thanks for the info.
  7. Nintendo Switch Online: SNES

    I believe one of those tiny ZL and ZR shoulder buttons doubles as the capture button on that particular controller. Kind of strange/annoying that Nintendo won’t enable this for other controllers too (not even with SL or SR when using a single Joy-Con ) as I use my Wii U Pro controller and would love to have a capture button shortcut on that. Mario Paint! Yeah, I’m guessing that one is unlikely without some type of modification, but if they somehow got it working with the Switch touchscreen that would be glorious! Be fun to mess around with the music tool on there again. Other than that I’d like to see Mystical Ninja (especially as I no longer have access to my Wii Virtual Console copy) and if Konami wanted to be really cool (also unlikely ) the Japan exclusive Mystical Ninja titles! Oh, and Pop’n Twinbee!
  8. Switch eShop Thread

    I’ve finally picked up Cuphead. There are definitely a few more titles on sale that I wouldn’t mind getting too. What’s the verdict on the latest version of Rime? I seem to recall it was a pretty bad port at launch, but that it got mostly sorted out via a later patch.
  9. Ring Fit Adventure

    Looks like this will indeed have online leaderboards.
  10. Mario Kart Tour (mobile)

    I thought this at first too, but it actually is possible. You just need to tap (or swipe) the screen with another finger while holding the drift. So much for that one handed play concept.
  11. Mario Kart Tour (mobile)

    Interesting. Surely that means this game (or more likely a modified version of it) will come to Switch at some point then. Having spent some more time with it today, I have to say there are some interesting aspects to Tour. The combo system is actually very cool, and building up a massive chain of drift boosts, jump tricks, item hits etc. (each accompanied by a higher pitch of orchestral hit) is really satisfying and something I’d like to see in a console Mario Kart with decent controls. Levelling up vehicle parts and drivers adds a nice form of progression to the game too and although nothing out of the ordinary, it’s still somewhat more compelling than just the online rating thing that the recent games have. Add missions and challenges into the mix as well and it makes playing this game feel a bit more rewarding than previous games in the series as you’re pretty much always working towards some type of achievement/goal. At the very least I hope Nintendo will consider updating MK8DX with some of the content from Tour, although I’m still waiting for that Labo VR update too and so far that hasn’t gone very well.
  12. Mario Kart Tour (mobile)

    To those just starting this, make sure you check out the settings at some point. There’s some bizarre stuff enabled by default, including an option which automatically uses any items you currently have when driving over an item box. That’s right, it’s possible to pick up a Super Horn... use it pointlessly just by driving into an item box... and then get hit by a Blue Shell, if you leave that option enabled.
  13. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

    I kinda want it.
  14. Mario Kart Tour (mobile)

    I hope they add Pauline to MK8DX at some point. Her singing would be a hilarious mess in an all Pauline N-E League GP.
  15. Mario Kart Tour (mobile)

    Yeah, it’s insane. Going to be very interesting to see how that works out for Nintendo. I imagine not very well at all, but you never know when it comes to the mobile games market, there’s blatantly (not to mention worryingly) some people out there who will subscribe to it.
