  1. Can you use any stylus on Switch, or does it have to be an official one.

    Edit: Had a look, most rubber tipped ones you can use with mobile and tablets should work, so ordered one for later

    Been playing the level creator for a few hours, already made 1 level that's impossible to beat (for me).  Too many Bowsers and Squids.

    I'm seeing a techno remix of The Final Countdown.

    I'm pretty sure we're all seeing different videos in @Jimbob's post based on our Youtube watch history, must be some error with either forum embedding or on Youtube's end.

    I see a cover version of Massive Attack's "Teardrop".

    Maybe this is the joke, that we all see something else. :confused:

    Weird, no idea what went wrong with the embed.  Especially as everyone saw something different.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

    So after the indicative votes we now know that there’s:

    No majority for May’s deal.

    No majority for a customs union.

    No majority for a 2nd referendum.

    No majority for revoking Article 50.

    No majority for no deal.


    A General selection is looming more than ever. A change in Parliament may give a majority for one of the above and seems to be one of the only ways to resolve Brexit now.


    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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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).

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.
