  1. Remembering the Nintendo GameCube

    The GameCube was the last console i had bought for me (well, partially as i had money from my first paypacket and they topped it up). Got the console around my birthday from Virgin Megastores, they had an offer on where i got the console, memory card and 2 games for about £200(ish). Was the perfect console, and the one machine that i played consistently (well, as much as i could outside of college and work). Then the GBA/GC adapter came about, and that meant big-screen Gameboy games. Playing A Link to the Past and Minish Cap on the big screen was great, especially as batteries were not needed. It's a shame that Nintendo didn't carry on with the online play until the Wii days. Smash Melee and Mario Kart could have been epic online.
  2. Tough to pick just 5, however for now i'm going for Super Mario World A Link to the Past Super Metroid Donkey Kong Country F-Zero Bound to be edited before closure
  3. Brexit 2019

    Enough is enough, 3 times it's gone to MP's and 3 times it's been rejected. MP's don't want a No Deal, they don't want her deal. They don't want to give us a 2nd vote, they don't want to revoke Article 50. Just what do they want, maybe it's about time they listened to the people again. But they made it clear they don't want to do that either.
  4. Brexit 2019

    So MP's can't decide what they want Just bring it to the people, who are speaking quite loud and clear at present. Then once that's done, call a General Election.
  5. General Switch Discussion

    The way Sony and Microsoft have handled their more powerful PS4's and Xbox One machines, everything worked on any PS4/Xbox One right down to accessories. So it didn't matter which version of those machines you got, everything worked. Games were more optimized for the more powerful machines, but they worked on the lower tier models. Which is perfectly fine and it won't alienate the install base. However, they did replace the OG models with the Slim and S respectively, so i'm expecting the Switch mini to replace the current Switch. Maybe a lot of 3rd party accessories won't work on the new Switch models at the start, but i'm almost guaranteeing that 1st party stuff will work no problem. So Joy-cons, Pro Controllers, Docks and the GC adaptor will be fine. I'm guessing they'll provide iterations or updates to allow the 2nd and 3rd party accessories to work.
  6. General Switch Discussion

    As long as all current and future Switch games work on all models of the Switch, i can't see an issue. It does sound like it will, so that's a good thing. Making a Switch-lite and a Pro model, and discontinuing the current Switch is the most logical way forward. keeping the current model about will just confuse things.
  7. 3DS Console Discussion

    8 years today, the 3DS launched in Europe. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2019/03/anniversary_nintendo_3ds_launched_8_years_ago_today_in_europe
  8. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    I'm quite fortunate still with Newport, most people go in after the raids are done and only a few remain out. And as it's mostly an Instinct town (the area i'm in anyway), it's quite easy to get coins still.
  9. I never played a lot of the NES library, until the Virtual Console came about that is. However, i did own a few titles on the original hardware. So, here's my Top 5. Super Mario Bros. 3 Paperboy Kirby's Adventure Tetris The Legend of Zelda
  10. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    New Sprites are out on the board, Green themed until 6am Monday morning. Busy gaming weekend ahead between this, Splatfest and the special raid on Pokemon Go.
  11. Brexit 2019

    Oh boy, here we go. The only way the EU will extend will be if there's a 2nd referendum or an election as you said @Kav. Going to be an interesting 24 hours again.
  12. Brexit 2019

    The saying "You'll vote, and keep voting until we get the right answer" gives meaning after yesterdays vote. I'm pretty much sick of Brexit now, either we'll extend Article 50, withdraw it or leave with No Deal. If we extend or withdraw, there will most certainly be a General Election to follow. The Tories don't know which end their heads are these days.
  13. Playstation Plus Free Games

    It does feel like a slap in the face, seeing as basically 4 games have vanished from PS+ and now we only get PS4 titles (ok, 2 or 3 of the Vita/PS3 titles were cross-play with PS4, which bumped up number). And the price remains the same. On the opposite side, Xbox has 4 games all compatible with Xbox One (and the service is £10 cheaper a year).
