  1. 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.
  2. Brexit - UK negotiates a deal

    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.
  3. Brexit - UK negotiates a deal

    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.
  4. 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).
  5. Wonder if they'll have Pokemon running around in the wild as they did with Let's Go. But at least we have something on a new mainline Pokemon title, which is good.
  6. Your 2019 Gaming Diary

    Finished 2 games in February, the first being Pokemon Let's Go Eevee. Nice remake of what is basically Pokemon Yellow, had to play it entirely in handheld mode as i was getting annoyed with using one joy-con (and i didn't fancy buying a £40 Pokeball for one game (and Mew)). Taking the simple catching mechanics from Go, it serves as a good intro to the mainline Pokemon series for people who've only played Go. We know we're getting a new mainline Gen8 Pokemon game later this year, this sufficed. Beat the Elite 4 with relative ease, caught Mewtwo (and all 3 Legendary birds), cleared the challenging trainers across the map. Was decent, not rushing back to play a 2nd time anytime soon. However, the big highlight for me is this. After buying it initial release in 2011. and after buying it a 2nd time on PS4 in 2016, i've finally finished The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim. Played it on/off for 8 years though, probably would have cleared it sooner if i focused all my efforts on the game. The Dawnguard DLC was pretty good, loved being a Vampire hunter. Dragonborn was pretty good as well in terms of missions on offer, didn't finish this until i got the Drauger armour/weapon set. Hearthfire could have been better. Saw a video on YouTube the other day explaining that if they let you build a village surrounding your manor, it would have been better. Even though i owned a fair few houses, i kept my family in Whiterun as i felt it was home. A good central location, which favored my character. I did turn Nazeem into a set of clothes for hilarity mind.
  7. PlayStation Vita Console Discussion

    Got my Vita initially just after my PS4 purchase, loved that handheld. Very underrated, shame it wasn't supported as fruitfully by Sony directly with 1st party games. It could have been better and probably better received if you could use different memory cards than the ones that had the Vita logo on. It's a shame, but i'm thankful to have owned a Vita. Such good gaming memories from that machine.
  8. Shovel Knight

    If it means a better, polished game then that's more than fair.
  9. Hollow Knight

    That's not DLC, it's a sequel. More from Team Cherry can only be good.
  10. Nintendo Direct 13/02 10pm (UK time)

    Super Mario Maker 2. Never played the 1st, well never owned it but have played it. Probably will pick this up around launch. Bloodstained: Rituals of the Night looks interesting, i'll consider a purchase. Loved the Smash update. What's coming to 3.0, you'll have to wait. Assassin's Creed III. I'm already getting it on PS4 as part of the Odyssey season pass, but that looked terrible on Switch frame-rate wise. Unraveled two, already own it on PS4 on my backlog. Yoshi, i'm already getting. But a demo is good for those unsure. Tetris 99, It's addictive, got to the final 17 before being taken out. Deltarune i was not expecting anytime soon, but nice to see it on Switch this month.Link's Awakening, nice surprise. Getting used to how Link looks in the game, but looks nice overall. Will they keep the shopkeeper "Thief" in, who knows. That's what i got from the Direct, wasn't bothered too much about the rest.
  11. Nintendo Direct 13/02 10pm (UK time)

    Hopefully we'll get news on the SNES app for the Nintendo online service. I'm hoping to hear more on Yoshi and Animal Crossing. There are rumours of Mother 3 being localised.
  12. Hollow Knight

    Paid DLC for Hollow Knight, if it means more adventures in the world then i'm game.
  13. Nintendo Switch Online: NES

    I for one never finished Super Mario Bros 2 ever, and i'm partial to a Kirby game. And they (Nintendo) really should sub the Japan exclusive title with something else for the US and EU/UK player base. Having 3 released in Japan to only 2 over this way doesn't do the price much fairness (but then, it's still cheap none the less)
  14. General Switch Discussion

    For a change, my PS4 backlog isn't too big. Assassin's Creed Odyssey Skyrim (i'm determined to finish it) Spyro Trilogy SpiderMan DLC Assassin's Creed Rogue That's about it from memory, it's going up in March and April with the arrival of Assassin's Creed III, Liberations and Day's Gone The Switch however, that's a different story Breath of the Wild Shantae Half Genie Hero Pokemon Let's Go Eevee Super Mario Bros U Deluxe Axom Verge Celeste (i'll finish it) Undertale Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze I'm working on Let's Go, got 2 more gyms then the Elite 4. Then the end-game content.
  15. Your 2019 Gaming Diary

    First game of 2019 done, which was Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2. It's much the same as the first in terms of game-play, the story is a direct follow on and it's humor is typical for the game. Can easily get this done in a weekend, and if you've not played the first, can do that in the same weekend.
  16. Assassins Creed Odyssey

    I've just come back to Odyssey from RDR2, and to be fair i echo the comments from @dan-likes-trees in terms of how the game sometimes freezes when riding the horse into settlements. However, the controls are better than RDR2 in places. I did have to get used to where the dismount button was, and was pleasantly surprised when calling for my horse that it just appears, unlike in RDR2. Exploring the Islands at the moment, unlocking various fast travel points and opening up the map as i did in Origins. Once that's done, i'll get on with the game properly with missions and contracts i see dotted about.
  17. No main mission goes much further West of Beechers Hope, so explore away.
  18. Finished the Epilogue on Friday, now i can give my full impressions for the game
  19. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe

    Picking it up myself as i enjoyed it on the WiiU (was the first WiiU game i got as well). Never played Luigi U, so at least i can give that a go this time around.
  20. You're pretty much there, if you've not max'd your bonding with your horse, do that also. Finished the main campaign over the festive period. I'll delve into details once i've finished the final chapter. But overall, a great experience.
  21. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Spent many hours playing through Smash mode to unlock every character, i know there is an exploit which "can" work. However, that felt cheap so played close to 70 matches* to unlock them *Some characters including Chrom, Simon, Pichu, Little Mac and Cloud too multiple attempts. Others i got on my 2nd shot, because the 1st i messed up by falling off the stage.
  22. Can't view the video in the office. Well now i know it's online, perfect.
  23. PlayStation Classic Announced (3rd Dec 2018)

    Now it's been hacked (as Hero-of-Time) mentioned, it's going to be a better machine. They shown off it was playing Doom upon it, now should be able ot play other PS classics now.
  24. Hopefully they've added online to this, will be excellent if that's the case. Only debate is what system to get it on, PS4 or Switch.
  25. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    I highly recommend God of War, and Horizon: Zero Dawn (also get the Frozen Wilds DLC). Both are fantastic games 5 years today the PS4 launched in the UK/EU.
