  1. This is now available to pre-order on eShop. It seems that you can use a Switch online voucher and still claim the bonus x2 gold points, effectively making it £37. I was going to get the physical version, but might go for digital now instead.
  2. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    New event tourney starts on Friday based on the original N64 Smash Bros. *EDIT* New DQ spirit on the way too:
  3. Mario & Sonic at the 2020 Olympics (Switch)

    Yeah, makes sense. And I quite like how they’ve mixed the sprites. They could always go with the SMM amiibo sprites for Yoshi and the rest of the Mario characters.
  4. Sega Ages (Summer M2)

    Oh nice! Looks like that’ll be my next Sega Ages purchase then, if indeed it makes it to Europe.
  5. Finally got a new level finished/uploaded, don't expect much though as it's pretty short/basic:
  6. Astral Chain -- August 30th 2019

    GotY confirmed!
  7. Indie World Presentation on 19/08/19

    Yeah, great game. That said, I’m hoping they’ve got a bit more in store for the sequel than what was shown yesterday. Apart from the multiplayer thing it might as well have been footage from the first one it was so similar!
  8. Mario & Sonic at the 2020 Olympics (Switch)

    That is amazing! Hell, I don’t need any of the 3D parts of the game, would seriously buy it just for the 2D stuff.
  9. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    This doesn't surprise me, after all Diddy Kong is a top-tier character (along with R.O.B and any other character that can materialise items ). The banana peels, obviously. Anyway, having finally summoned the remaining few spirits that I needed and collected the LABO ones, I now have the complete collection of 1336! Was stuck at 1335 for a while which was annoying, before realising I was missing Dracula. Seems that particular Spirit can only be obtained via WoL, so once you enhance it to Soma Cruz the only way to get Dracula back in your collection is to re-obtain it from WoL. Still working on getting them all to Lv.99, but have run out of snacks. So Doc Louis is going to have to help out a bit with that. Having spent time looking through the spirit list recently though, I'm really surprised that they're not also usable as profile icons for your Smash Tag. Seems so strange to have a limited selection of images for that purpose when the game already has thousands of varied icons that would be perfect for it.
  10. Yep, here's video evidence:
  11. N-Europe Mario Kart League 2019

    @Glen-i @BowserBasher I won’t be able to make it this week now (and potentially next week too, will let you know) so I’m out.
  12. Indie World Presentation on 19/08/19

    The new game from Shin’en seems interesting, kinda looks like mini BotW Shrine puzzles, which I can definitely dig. Some lovely visual elements too, as is always the case with Shin’en. Will be keeping a close eye on that one.
  13. You’re clearly not familiar with any of my “formidable” Pokémon teams. No evolved/ugly Pokémon allowed! I loved the special message for his friends and family too.
  14. So I tuned into this after seeing you lot chatting about it, didn’t really get what was going on in the battle but glad I stuck around for that interview, absolutely hilarious!
  15. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Yay! And it only took me 48 attempts.
  16. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Let us know when you’re actually ready to join, save me from staring at an empty boxing ring.
  17. Nice. Shame Twitter videos always look like complete turd though, absolutely atrocious compression!
  18. Nintendo Switch Online: NES

    Man, it's about time!
  19. I did like it. Well, apart from the brutal cruelty towards poor Yoshi. I've kind of lost my Mario Making mojo at the moment unfortunately... Have several levels on the go, but just can't seem to focus on, or finish any of them. Probably best to take a bit of a break from the creation process and play other people's stuff instead. Hopefully the multiplayer with friends update will arrive soon too.
  20. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Really enjoying the online tourney mode in this. Yet to win a tourney (probably never will ) but it's a lot of fun taking part. The only thing that's not so great is how you can't spectate live and have to wait for replays to become available, but even so it's been a fantastic addition to the game. Anyone else getting into tourneys, or managed to win any?
  21. General Retro Discussion

    Thanks for the heads up. Yeah, that was very interesting indeed! I wasn't familiar with Tant-R before now, but having seen it in that video (and some others on YouTube) there's absolutely no doubt in my mind that it heavily inspired WarioWare. Hell, some of the games are pretty much a direct copy! I'd love to play that at some point. Would be great if it made it to Switch as part of the Sega Ages series.
  22. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Yeah, cheers for the games last night. I was absolutely cracking up during one of the earlier fights against @Glen-i (he was Zelda and I was Dr. Mario) where I managed to fluke 2 fully charged Home-Run Bat hits (one of which was completely blind) from the secret area of my custom Pikmin stage! 150 HP to KO in an instant. *EDIT* That moment:
  23. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Any interest in some more “hardcore menu action”, at say 8pm?
