  1. Switch eShop Thread

    thatgamecompany's latest Sky: Children of the Light is apparently coming to Switch with support from crossplay. Really good news, I loved Journey but haven't checked this out because it's only been on iOS and I would prefer to play it with a controller. No word on when it'll be coming though.
  2. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Interesting news about Horizon, it must be on the back of Death Stranding coming over - they've seen how to optimise the Decima engine for PC. I doubt that we'll get any brand new Sony releases coming out on PC for a while but I can see them bringing the PS4 Spider-Man and God of War over in the next couple of years
  3. Cyberpunk 2077 — 17th September 2020

    Everyone is stepping aside to give us more time to play Animal Crossing.
  4. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    I think we know why they didn't reveal it at the game awards. Would have been an even bigger disappointment then.
  5. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    My wildest dream is Ryo Hazuki. Slightly more realistic is BOXBOY! but it's probably going to be Dante.
  6. 3DS Console Discussion

    Just tried to order Pikmin and they don't offer it for delivery. Only available for in store pick up if the specific store has stock and it isn't in stock at my local one. Oh well, wasn't desperate to play it anyway just thought I might as well at that price.
  7. 3DS Console Discussion

    I haven't looked at 3DS games for a while but I followed @Dcubed's link to the Argos site and browsed through them. Hey Pikmin is £2.49 and Metroid Federation Force is only £5.99. Will definitely get Pikmin but I'm not sure about Federation Force. Is it designed to play single player or is it a bit clunky unless you have other people to play with?
  8. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Mine was accurate, reminding me that I only played 4 games on PS4 all year. Apparently I spent longer in Shenmue III than I had thought, it was my most played at 39 hours. Next was RE2, then Life is Strange 2 finally followed by 11 -11: Memories Retold.
  9. E3 is obviously fading but I thought they would definitely show up this year given they've got a brand new console to promote. Shows how fractured the promotion side of things has become that they don't feel it necessary anymore, most people thought it was just Shawn Layden that didn't want to show up to E3 but it's obvious now that it's a company wide strategy. Will be interesting to see how the effects third party presence at the PS5 reveal event and other shows going forward. This whole generation Playstation has managed to secure the marketing rights to a slew of massive games but this could change things.
  10. Switch eShop Thread

    After finishing Pokemon I played through SUPERHOT this week and really liked it. I'm not that into shooters but it really felt like more of a puzzle game, it runs really well on Switch too. It's obviously hard to judge the framerate due to the nature of the game but in terms of resolution at least (I played it exclusively on my TV with the pro controller) I only noticed a couple of dips. I can't imagine what it would be like in VR, must be a real trip. I finally started Bayonetta once I'd wrapped up SUPERHOT and it's as bonkers as I'd hoped. I played through all the mainline God of War's in 2018 and I can definitely see the influence on this but it just takes things to the next level.
  11. General Switch Discussion

    I'd love a copy if you've still got one to spare @Goron_3. Would I need to set up a US account to redeem it?
  12. Thank you @Ashley! I remember fondly you Kristen Bell blowing bubblegum avatar when I first joined way back in 2006, you've been an ever present staff member over all these years so I'll be sad to see you go but I hope things improve for you in your life outside of NE. It's absolutely ridiculous that NE is 22 years old. I remember stumbling upon it during an IT lesson when I was in secondary school, several years before I dared to join the forum, and I can't believe that I'm still visiting pretty much every single day. Props to all the staff members who helped to make the place what it is over the years, can't think of a better guy to take over from Ashley than you @S.C.G. Here's to another 22 years!
  13. I'm close to the end now and I've barely touched the wild area. It's the first new Pokémon game I've played since Sapphire on the GBA (although I suppose I did play Soul Silver so DS is technically the last gen I touched) so a lot of it is new to me. It feels almost perverse not to have HM's and the experience system is a lot more generous than I ever knew it to be. Pokémon was never that hard to begin with but this game has been absurdly easy - I haven't lost a single battle - but I've mostly enjoyed myself. The core gameplay is still fun and engaging but Game Freak could definitely do more to spruce up the presentation. It's really disappointing hearing the majority of Pokémon sound like they would on the GB.
  14. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (March 2020)

    Just 10% so I've got it for £44.99 instead of £50.
