  1. Mario Tennis Aces

    Honestly, if Nintendo announced a Golden Sun game for Switch you'd be able to hear my scream in the vacuum of space.
  2. Mario Tennis Aces

    I don't want to make friends just so I can play doubles in a non-torturous way. I want to play this game casually and jump on randomly for a few games and then jump off. If I want to play a game with friends I'd rather just play Overwatch tbh.
  3. Mario Tennis Aces

    Blocking is good and all, but screwing an attempt up shouldn't mean a fail state for the game. Especially when I'm co-oping with friends who has little to no experience playing the game. Considering the pick-up-and-playness of the game – to the point that you can only play Tie Break in online doubles (with a local co-op partner) and not a full set – this implementation is nothing but incredibly stupid. I genuinely had to tell my friend that when the other team did the super move to just leave it; the pros far outweigh the cons; I'd rather lose the point than risk THE WHOLE GAME. (Obviously he still went for it and failed and we lost...despite out reading the opponent at every turn) I don't really have an issue with tactics. I actually think this is one of the few games where you can read your opponents (and even kite them) pretty well, it's one of the best things. Yeah, you have a point with Boo. I started to cotton onto his schemes. Online doubles (with a local partner) seems to only let you choose between the normal and the simple rule set, but you can't change things like the number of rackets or if KOs are allowed. Edit: Also, how you select courts is atrocious. Why can't there be a normal stage select after the character select? Between this and the dumb stage rotation in Splatoon, I'm really starting to remember the inverse silver lining that comes with everything good from Nintendo.

    Played local Doubles online. The KO mechanic is the dumbest thing ever. Basically, if anyone's racket breaks, they lose the whole thing so it not worth the risk so every time someone pulls off one of those super shots everyone just runs away. Also, you can only do Tie Breaker. And you basically can't tweak any of the other options (so you can't switch the KO mechanic off, or change the number of rackets everyone has...which is set at 1 for no good reason). Genuinely terrible, all of this. And I know people have mentioned there is an option to reject bad connections, but you can't reject the people who have apparently good/fine connections that then turn to crap (and usually never recover) over the course of a match. It's frustrating, because if it works and none of the players are gaming the systems, then it's a hell of a lot of fun. Also, fuck Boo. Edit: As for single player... Fuck Boo AND Why can you only play as Mario? And why is Toad even there. And why can't I restart challenges straight away? And why do I have to sit through crap before a challenge AND AFTER WHEN I'VE LOST?! I can't play this game for too long. It both brilliant and driving me barmy.

    The lag online is absolutely awful. Edit: Second match was less awful
  6. Mario Tennis Aces

    They seem to have the multiplayer DLC locked down with a free character every month (if I've read rightly), which shows their intent to keep interest in this game ongoing. So I don't think single player DLC is too farfetched. Fingers crossed
  7. Mario Tennis Aces

    Any chance there might be Splatoon 2 like DLC for more single player?
  8. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    I really like how they've integrated trading. I think this makes it virtually pointless for spoofers while actually being quite rewarding for friends who play. Sadly it won't really be an issue for the multi--accounters who I have more of a practical problem with...but then the fact Raiding with one Best Friend gives you 4 more Premium Balls is great and helps alleviate their presence a little.
  9. Hollow Knight

    That's what I'm hoping for so that's good to hear!
  10. Hollow Knight

    I picked this up because everyone was singing its praise. I was a little worried that it would be too hard, or too unforgiving. But, I am really enjoying it. To me, it feels like Dark Sous meets Metroid. I think maybe because you get punished bad for mistakes, the enemies all signal their attacks, going back to pick up your dead body, etc,. I just fought the boss with the needle and thread weapon (for the first time?). I love the music. Love the art direction and the animation. I'm enjoying the enemy design. I love playing it on the TV and in portable. Yeah...hopefully it doesn't get too hard because I'm sad to say it only takes one incredibly frustrating boss to cock-block me from progressing through a game.
  11. Splatoon 2

    I may try and pick up a Pro Controller then. I'll dip back into it again soon.
  12. Splatoon 2

    I picked this up on the sale. Reached lvl 7 or 8. I'm a bit meh on it. I think the controls are fiddly, maybe that's just the tiny Switch sticks. I really don't like that you can't change weapons once you're in a game. It feels a bit unfriendly to beginners. It's enjoyable to play while watching something on TV but I could hardly say it holds my attention. Is there any skill based matchmaking in this? I came top of my team every game in a 10-game losing streak. I was usually the lowest level by quite some way. What am I missing? Also, sitting through a 'News update' every time I switch the game on is getting real old real fast.
  13. Nintendo Direct: E3 2018

    Yeah, I am very excited. And I love the returning old stages too. A perfect mix of nostalgia and newness!
  14. Nintendo Direct: E3 2018

    Look, I'm not here for reasonable discussion. I'm here to demand my boi Waluigi get recognised as the Nintendo royalty that he is.
  15. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — 7th December 2018

    Except for the absolutely heinous decision to not have Waluigi as a playable character, this looks great. I am super exited for it. And I actually pre-ordered it last week. I haven't played either of the last two Smash games, so this has a whole lot of new stuff for me. Can someone explain what everyone is talking about when they talk about 'tripping'? Also, what are Fighter Profiles?
