  1. Football Season 2017-18

    Only saw the first half so can only comment on the Kane challenge but that definitely should have been a red card. I was hopeful that Spurs might do something tonight but after a promising start the quality and confidence of City clearly showed. Their 3 fixtures before the end of the year are totally winnable so it's entirely possible they could finish the year with 19 wins in a row - that's a half season winning streak. I think Mark Hughes will lose his job overnight, Stoke have been dreadful this season and with the resurgence of Palace and West Ham it looks like they're going to be in a relegation battle if they don't change something soon. I think Rafa might be given the boot soon aswell, Newcastle haven't won in the league for 8 matches now and as much as they seem to worship Benitez on Tyneside I feel like the only reason he's keeping his job at the moment is because Mike Ashley is desperately trying to sell the club so isn't being too hands on at the moment.
  2. Switch eShop Thread

    That's great news, I'm glad it's running until the 28th as I doubt I'll be able to spare the cash until after Xmas but definitely want to pick up a few. Will probably take a punt on Rocket League too.
  3. I thought the music was one of the best aspects of the game. I felt it gelled really well with the rest of the soundtrack, playing Skyrim at the moment and it's quite jarring having this rousing score always on while just walking through empty fields. Both Zelda and Mario seem to have been criticised for their soundtracks by some outlets but to me they have offered some of the best aural experiences of the year, the sound design and music in both games was frequently impressive.
  4. Sadness

    Ha, incredible. Let's hope it lives up to the high quality of the original game, definitely one of my fondest Wii memories.
  5. Indie Games

    I think I saw the same trailer on another platform at E3, it looks great but I don't think I'm smart enough to figure out the puzzles.
  6. Super Mario Odyssey

    After beating Bowser I only expected to get to 500 moons, but I kept unlocking things and eventually on Friday night I had bought every outfit and maxed out the moon counter. I can't imagine I'll be going back to the game anytime soon unless they release DLC for it but the 80 hours i've put into it have been an absolute joy and it has to rank as my game of the year, even putting it ahead of Breath Of The Wild.
  7. General Switch Discussion

    That's ridiculous. It would be a huge surprise if it doesn't surpass Wii U's lifetime sales by March now. What a crazy turnaround this year has seen for Nintendo.
  8. I enjoyed it for the most part, there were definitely some frustrating moments but I really enjoyed most of the new Shrines and the final trial was pretty cool too, especially that boss battle. I think it's worth playing through if you enjoyed the main game but it's definitely worth lowering expectations. I think I'll probably get all of the Divine Beast armour and then take on Ganon one more time to give the game a fitting send off. My play time clocks in at 210 hours now and it's fair to say I've enjoyed most of that time immensely and I'm sure i'll revisit the game again in future.
  9. Football Season 2017-18

    Most of the English clubs got good draws in the CL, obviously Chelsea and Spurs have the toughest. I'd expect Spurs to beat Juventus over two legs though, they have been pretty impressive at Wembley in Europe this season so it should be a huge advantage to have the last leg at home. Everyone is already writing Chelsea off but anything can happen in the knockout stages so it's not impossible. It's a great draw for Ostersund getting Arsenal in the Europa League, the club were only formed in 1996 so Wenger has been at Arsenal for longer than their opponents have existed. They have written history in every round so far so I'd expect them to give Arsenal a tough tie. Celtic have been drawn against Zenit so it's a pretty big ask for them considering they haven't won a European game at Celtic Park for a few years
  10. Your Switch moment of 2017

    I don't really have any personal, unique moments to share but my favourite moment of the year was probably the final sequence of Super Mario Odyssey. Never before have I felt so much unbridled joy, every aspect of it was so perfectly weighted and that final cutscene capped it brilliantly. With the console itself I didn't really experience the hybrid aspects of it until Mario Kart came out (I played Zelda almost exclusively on my TV with the pro controller) and it's only really with Mario and Skyrim that i've been taking full advantage of the dual nature of the Switch. This year has been spectacular, and I can't wait to see what there is in store for 2018.
  11. Death Stranding (PS4 Kojima)

    It definitely posed more questions than it answered but at least we know why the ground is covered in dead and dying sea life. If the gameplay is anything like MGSV then it'll be great but it seems like it's going to be a long time before we see any actual gameplay. So far it's great but it's basically just a series of short films
  12. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    I think I'll just try and avoid any news and watch the EZA stream when I wake up. I'm not expecting any major reveals but do expect a more in-depth look at the new From Software game, there'll probably be a new trailer for Days Gone aswell seeing as that skipped Paris and Tokyo.
  13. Bayonetta 1+2 Hitting Switch In Feb

    Never got around to buying them on Wii U so I'm really happy they're coming to Switch. Sucks that we don't get the first one physically but at least they're on the way.
  14. The Game Awards 2017

    Josef is great, Geoff's patience was really tested though. I don't think EA will be letting him back on stage at E3.
  15. The Game Awards 2017

    Death Stranding might well never come out but all three trailers so far have been pure art. If Kojima and his team can deliver on even a fraction of the potential for the story for this game while delivering a gameplay experience similar to MGSV then it could really be one of the greats. But even if it fails to deliver on every front then the trailers have been worth it anyway. This show has been insane!
