  1. Metroid Prime Blast Ball

    I played three online matches yesterday, won all of them! And made quite some goals. It's good to not suck at an online game haha, I will however in a week when the rest had more practice and I get swamped by fanatic players... The online part reminded me a bit of Steel Diver, you get tossed randomly in a match and can pick a side. But as far as I could see you cannot create a game with friends online, which would be a big miss. Local play and download play (a bit strange for a free to download title) are supported. It at least feels like more of an action-oriented game than the aforementioned Steel Diver, and I will probably do some quick between playing other games.
  2. Metroid Prime Blast Ball

    Apparently in the US it is considered as a demo to the full Metroid game, while here in the EU it is standalone. But my guess is it will still be bundled. Maybe with more unlockable stuff in the full game version. Played the tutorial and a training match, plays pretty solid! Would like a MP Hunters touch control too though. But yeah, this could be a fun online competition game! Haven't checked how the matchmaking works, but would be nice to set up a N-Europe league for it! Nice surprise Nintendo!
  3. Monster Hunter Generations

    Yes, was good to hunt with you guys! Thanks @Glen\-i and @Ugh first aid! I needed to catch up since all were HR2 and I was still lingering at HR1 online. Luckily the good folks mentioned above helped me out tackling a number of quests. We did the prowler ones, and took down a R. Ludroth, Tetsu, Gypceros and Kut-Ku. The last one got slaughtered pretty badly, with all of us unleashing some rad Hunter Arts while Ku was toppled. Insta-death for the poor fellow. Can't wait to get to the higher online quests for a bit more challenge, those hyper quests sound intriguing.
  4. Monster Hunter Generations

    Just got off from work (bad day to have to work late) and still have to eat, so I hope I can still join soon but don't count on me too much!
  5. Monster Hunter Generations

    I will be around at 7 (so that is 6 London time if I'm not mistaken). Will gladly join!
  6. Monster Hunter Generations

    Wish I could join but I have band practice tonight!
  7. Monster Hunter Generations

    For the review I was in doubt about giving this game an 8 or a 9 (if we would do half points an 8.5 would have been good). Decided to go for a 9 because of the free DLC and the amount of quests. But it was a close call. And for the difficulty, even in MH4U I already found it easy to predict the monster behaviour. Nothing compared to learning MHTri's Barroth for example. And this is even easier, also thanks to stuff like the Arts. Although timing offensive Arts can be tricky. Guess we have to increase the difficulty ourselves by doing naked runs!
  8. 3DS Console Codes

    Thanks @S\.C\.G, will definitely add you if I haven't done already! And will do so for the fellow hunters. I do need to clean up my list though since I added a number of randoms in MH4U and they are carried over to MHG. But I don't know who's who. Will sort it out shortly.
  9. Monster Hunter Generations

    Ho wow you must have been playing full time the whole weekend! But yeah, it seems they are going quantity over quality with the quests, and the game is rather easy. Especially online with 4 seasoned hunters.
  10. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    Don't blame Nintendo, it's not their game! But yeah, today I was in a busy city with dozens of lure enhanced Pokéstops, but I got kicked out all the time in this potential gold mine. And it was in a time that USA was not even playing much. Got a Charmander though and hatched my 10km egg into an Eevee. Which gave me enough candy to evolve it, so I decided to try the naming trick: So holy crap, that worked!
  11. Monster Hunter Generations

    So, I would like to hunt with you guys sometimes! I am not sure who I have and who I haven't got in my friendlist though. Is it an idea to come up with a standard room name so you can always search for that? I saw you used N-Europe before as name, that sounds good. And make an N-Europe 2 when the first is full. Oh I am not playing now btw, but will probably be on tonight. So, I would like to hunt with you guys sometimes! I am not sure who I have and who I haven't got in my friendlist though.

Standard password 4444 if you don't want randoms. Oh I am not playing now btw, but will probably be on tonight.
  12. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    So my short experience yesterday. I walked around the neighborhood passing a number of stops to get some more Pokéballs. I saw a couple of kids on bikes who were taking over every gym in the area with their >CP800 'mon, very frustrating haha. Caught a Psyduck and some Magikarp near a little creek, and ran into some foreign students who were also playing. They chitchatted with me for a bit and another guy also joined, insane how this game brings people together. I continued to the city center where there are a lot of stops, so stocking up some serious items. I was going to meet my gf and some friends in a bar, but had to take a small detour since I saw a Pokéstop with a lure on the market place. Sat there for some minutes catching mostly Caterpies and then continued to get a well deserved beer! Yes, the game is rather simple and plain but maybe that is why it allures to the masses. I hope that The Pokémon Company can keep up the momentum with some added features in the future.
  13. Nintendo Classic Mini (NES) - November 11

    Wow, out of the blue! Nice collector's item, and fun to hook up to an old (although not too old due to HDMI) TV or screen. The controller looks to be a 1 on 1 copy of the original so that is great. Too bad that one is not USB otherwise you could also use it for Raspberry Pi and the likes. Shame for everyone who has bought all this on VC, since this sounds like a great deal for $2 per game including free hardware. Yeah Probotector 1 is much better, but I believe on the current VC also only part 2 is available so it is probably a license thing.

    Three options: 1) Create an Apple Id with country New Zealand 2) Throw away iPhone and buy an Android 3) Wait 2 or 3 days since it should release very soon

    Let me comfort you on this bugging issue. Area 10 is gone, and area 8 (the one with both shallow and deep water) is now mostly land. No swimming in MHG!

    Ha, I just saw 5 people aiming their smartphones in someone's garden. And I already saw multiple people walking around with their phone playing it. Like already said before, not even out officially and already it is ON! Too bad that in my town there are not many Pokémon. Luckily at work (where also already 4 or 5 people are playing) there is more to catch. Good reason to walk for a break!

  24. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    Just installed it today, and first impression was actually quite allright! I went to have a walk with a colleague, and we were both running around like idiots to catch a Magikarp haha. AR works good, GPS is accurate, only that battery drain though. I'll see how it plays in the long run, since as with Miitomo the novelty will wear off. And I also wonder if it can be played free without paying for a long time. Here's hoping to a more extensive version with normal evolution ways, levelling up by walking for example. And more in depth battling!
