  1. Metroid Dread

    Going to throw my impressions into spoiler tags as I'll be talking about bosses and items and whatnot.
  2. Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) - 8th October 2021

    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.
  3. Animal Crossing Direct October 15th 15:00 BST

    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.
  4. Animal Crossing Direct October 15th 15:00 BST

    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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) - 8th October 2021

    For those who find the OLED colours a bit too bright and saturated, there is a setting in your Switch menu under system where you can change it from vivid to standard. Makes it look a lot more natural but still bright and shiny.
  8. Dumb algorithms

    One thing that always annoys me is that if I'm looking to buy something, it pops up in advertisements. Even after having bought that product, it keeps popping up in an advertisement. There should be a "I've already bought this, get it out of my feed" button.
  9. Windows 11

    Unfortunately my PC has a 6th gen processor so no update for me. My work laptop is 10th gen, but knowing ITs speed it will take a while before they will roll out W11 in the company. It's too bad, I always like trying out the new OS but don't have a chance yet.
  10. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Are they all cloud versions? I thought I saw that only KHIII is a cloud version? Would love to pick up the 1.5 and 2.5 game, but not if it's in the cloud.
  11. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Well, that's one character that was high in the polls debunked!
  12. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    No doubt it'll be a funky announcement, although it will make a lot of people cranky. I know I'm sitting ready with my big bowl of candy for the ride!
  13. Favourite Switch experience (so far)

    To me the Switch has been a great console so far. As I play mostly handheld (has been the case since the Game Boy), having one machine for both handheld and TV play is a godsend. I'm excited to get my hands on the OLED for the better screen as I think I will get a lot of enjoyment out of it. Plenty of highlights to talk about. Breath of the Wild obviously is one of the greatest games ever made and it is such a joy to play. But Splatoon 2 is one of my favourites. I just love the whole setting, vibe, and mechanics of the game. Another highlight has to be Astral Chain, such an impressive game. The Switch has been the machine to make me love Platinum. Never owned a WiiU, so I finally got to play Bayonetta 1 and 2, plus The Wonderful 101. Next to that there are a lot of great games available, from lovely indies such as Hollow Knight and Axiom Verge 1 and 2, to fun third parties such as Immortals Fenyx Rising and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 Remastered. There really is something for everyone and looking back I've already played so many great games on it. It's also a lovely pinball machine. But my most favourite thing about the Switch is that it has brought back community gaming. I joined the Mario Kart League again which was amazing and fun every Thursday. Dropping in random Smash Bros. nights is always good, and recently Monster Hunter Rise has been an amazing multiplayer experience. Playing random games online with N-E and Discord people like Rocket League, or the Beat 'em up Collection. Having parties and trading sessions or just random visits in Animal Crossing. And finally the Mario Maker 2 building challenges here on N-E. It's a shame a lot of that community play has dwindled a bit now, but they have been great and I would love for it to be more active again.
  14. Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) - 8th October 2021

    I know there are at least some games that don't use cloud saves, such as Animal Crossing and Splatoon 2. I'm also not sure what is transferred in regards to play times, different profiles et cetera.
