  2. Animal Crossing: New Horizons

    It looks like there's plenty to do after the upgrade! Had my first stretching session yesterday with @Glen-i and @BowserBasher, and did a couple of things already on my island. Ordered a bunch of new items plus all the things from the Nook Miles, went on a boat trip with Kapp'n and spent 100,000 bells to get Leif on Harv's island, hoping he brings the veg. Redd will be next! Got some ideas for restructuring my island, with the vegetables on the way, but also a bunch of cool new items to get from Nook Shopping. Still on the fence about the DLC, curious to hear your impressions if it is solid and fun and justifies the 25 euros.
  3. Logic Randomisers??

    Well, that was fun! Finished my first randomizer ever. Axiom Verge now has one included in the game, with a variety of options to set. I chose Normal and Default seeing as it's my first randomizer experience, plus I only played through Axiom Verge once before. The biggest difference between Default and Advanced is that the latter relies on certain glitches. Putting the rest in spoilers for those who never played Axiom Verge before: Now I know the game's layout again, I'm tempted to start another run and see how fast I can do it now, and how different it is to my first random playthrough. One thing's for sure, I'm digging this and would love to play some more randomized games. Too bad that most require ROMs to do so, so it's great to see Axiom Verge have it included.
  4. Pikmin Bloom (mobile)

    Installed it myself and plucked my first Pikmin. Not sure if this is going to be interesting for the long run as I think it has less of the collectability appeal that Pokémon has, but at least the Pikmin are charming. Also: my friend code is 0864 0948 6112
  5. Metroid Dread

    Boss Keys has a pretty interesting video up about the linearity of Dread, and what mechanisms it uses to accomplish this: Spoiler warning for those who have not played the game, but if you have this is a nice one to watch. I also felt that Dread was far more linear than other Metroidvanias, but it's cool to see how the devs did so. Although so many one-way routes does feel a bit cheap.
  6. So, the plug got pulled and it's a flatline for Dr. Mario World, which is quite ironic considering he is a doctor. Not even Dr. Goomba Tower could save this! I can see why as it didn't generate the revenue Nintendo may have expected, but I wonder if it is really that expensive to keep a server in the air for it? I can imagine them stopping putting in new content, but for players who are playing this still and may not have finished it it is quite sour. I really wonder what the upkeep of a game like this is.
  7. Monster Hunter Rise

    Played this game again after not playing for several weeks. Did some online hunts with @Mokong, @Glen-i and @Londragon and son, and a couple of online quests with randoms. It has rekindled my love for the game, and further confirmed that this is definitely going to be my GOTY, seeing as not much more will be releasing for me. At the moment I have an awesome hunting horn support set, despite it not having the greatest defense. I have a good lance set as well, and I'm currently upgrading a bow set. What I'm looking for now is to build an overall capable set for the other weapons, one I can use with Switchaxe, Hammer, Long Sword, Dual Blades. Preferably one with high affinity/critical hit. Thinking of just building the set of one of the stronger beasts like Valstrax, Narwa or Teostra/Chameleos. Any advice here?
  8. Three iconic cities, three epic stories. Play the genre-defining classics of the original Grand Theft Auto Trilogy: Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas updated for a new generation, now with across-the-board enhancements including brilliant new lighting and environmental upgrades, high-resolution textures, increased draw distances, Grand Theft Auto V-style controls and targeting, and much more, bringing these beloved worlds to life with all new levels of detail. Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition includes: Grand Theft Auto III: It all starts in Liberty City. With the revolutionary freedom to go anywhere and jack anyone, Grand Theft Auto III puts the center of the criminal underworld at your fingertips, if you have enough guts to take it. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City: Welcome to the 1980s. From the decade of big hair and pastel suits comes the story of one man's rise to the top of the criminal pile. Grand Theft Auto returns with Tommy Vercetti’s tale of betrayal and revenge in a neon-soaked tropical town full of excess and brimming with possibilities. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas: Five years ago, Carl ‘CJ’ Johnson escaped the haze of Los Santos, San Andreas...a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs, and corruption. Now, it's the early 90s. CJ’s got to go home - his mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart, and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster. On his return to the neighborhood, a couple of cops frame him for homicide, forcing CJ on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets in the next iteration of the series that changed everything. Developed by Rockstar Games, adapted by Grove Street Games.

  14. General Switch Discussion

    The two Lara Croft co-op games are coming to the Switch next year, Square Enix just announced. I wonder if that means that there is a chance that the reboot trilogy is also on the way.
  15. Can be claimed on the Game Mania website for the Dutchies in here (like @markderoos).
  16. Weird, this sounds a lot like a game I'm playing on the Switch at the moment, Super Kazuma Ball. Then again, Super Sonic Ball sounds much more plausible so I'm afraid I bought a knock-off or counterfeit game. I mean, why would a Yakuza character roll around in a Green Hill Zone?
  17. Pokémon Legends: Arceus (28th January 2022)

    Mystery solved, good guess @Julius!
  18. PC Gaming Discussion

    Not with the 9 wireless, but I have the wired Arctis 3. Quite happy with it, of course you lose some functions with the cheaper model (like 5.1 dolby), but I really like the build of it which is similar to the 9. The elastic headband is very comfortable and the retractable microphone is nice for when you just use it for audio.
  19. good stuff thread.

    We planted an apple tree in the garden in the beginning of the year, and I'm currently eating our full harvest (one apple). And it's delicious!
  20. Metroid Dread

    Going to throw my impressions into spoiler tags as I'll be talking about bosses and items and whatnot.
  21. I know my brother is in the market for one, so I'll check if he wants to take it from my hands. If not I'll try to sell it second hand.
  22. So the DLC is €24,99 standalone, or included in the NSO Expansion Pack which will cost €39,99 a year (how cheeky of them to drop the NSO Expansion Pack price in this!). That's pretty steep, both for the DLC as for the NSO+. Edit: Edited in euro signs. In pounds it's 22,49/34,99.
  23. Yep, this looks like it'll draw me back into the game. Looks like plenty of new stuff to justify calling it a version 2.0 update! The paid DLC looks like a Happy Home Designer+ kind of game, pretty interesting! Curious to see what it costs.
  24. I really like the one where they use a different artstyle (or the artstyle from the game they are referencing). So I really enjoy the likes of Little Mac, Palutena, Byleth and Min Min. Some epic ones all over, and my favourite one (everyone is here!) is not even in the list because no new characters were revealed, but what a bombshell that was.
  25. Good job bumping this thread, I almost forgot about this despite already rewatching about 2/3rd of that list. Do you need arguments why in the PM, or are we going to discuss here afterwards?
