  1. Nintendo Switch paid online coming 2018

    I've played some games with @RedShelland yeah there was definitely lag. Noticed it during Balloon Fight and RCR the most. Was fun to play Ice Hockey, never played it before so had to find out controls on the go! Luckily NES controls involve a hell of a lot less buttons. RCR I never played as well but recognized the style from Crash & The Boys Street Challenge. Hope that comes soon as that's great in 2p mode! Currently playing SMB3 with @Sméagoland aw man I am sucking big time! Either I am very rusty or the controls seem less tight, because I die a lot.
  2. Splatoon 2

    Haven't played this since the update and I might as well get my money out of the online subscription. So anyone up for some post-MK8 League splatting tomorrow?
  3. Will set up my Online subscription tonight so I should be IN tomorrow.
  4. General Switch Discussion

    Well, the box says Full Game download. Which is an empty statement for a free game. And of course the full game of Fortnite includes Save The World as well but the Switch only has the Battle Royale part. So Save The World confirmed?
  5. August N-E Game Club: Wario Land 4

    I'm aiming to get an article online this thursday, so if anyone wants to contribute please do! Just a small impression or a highlight of stuff that stood out for you (positive or negative), all is welcome.
  6. Arena of Valor

    Just going offline, have to get up early in the morning! Yeah Krixi is a bugger, her moves remind me of Lux from LoL.
  7. I sucked so hard, but it doesn't bother me because everyone was so Fresh tonight!
  8. General Switch Discussion

    For the USB to ethernet adapter a lot of them work, but I think this one is used a lot as it's cheap on Amazon: For a cable I think a Cat5e cable is good enough, unless you will have a lot of them running alongside each other, then go for a Cat6 cable. Don't know brands of these, there is difference in quality but I used the one that came with my modem/router. Finally the network hub. I've got a Sitecom 5 port switch meaning 1 in and 4 out. I've got a gigabit one. Other good brands are TP Link, Netgear or Linksys. I think this is the one I have, sorry for the Dutch website:
  9. IN! And will be Hillary again. It will be Hillarious.
  10. Arena of Valor

    Yep, got mine this morning so I quickly used it in the eShop before I went to work. So should be all ready and downloaded when I get home tonight!
  11. Gaming FOMO

    No. But I do have FOMO. Not so much with new games, but more with weekly events, limited time unlockables and the likes. There are a lot of games nowadays that have weekly login bonuses, weekly or even daily objectives. Often they reward you with stuff like gold or extra XP and I don't care if I miss some of that (well maybe a little). But timed events with exclusive unlockables are when my FOMO kicks (or at the moment luckily kicked) in. Some examples I can think of are for example Pokémon Go. Getting a 7 day streak at Pokéstops rewards you with a rare item. I remember getting very frustrated when one day I broke my 7 day streak on the 6th day. Lately Battlefield 1 had a bunch of exclusive skins unlockable if you played some weekly missions. I didn't really want to play the game, but this was the only time I could unlock these! Stress! I remember a surprisingly frustrating weekend when there was a Splatfest in Splatoon 2, a special tournament in Rocket League (with exclusive unlockable items) and I think either a beta weekend of some game or an event in Battlefield 1. I could only play for a couple of hours, and I was stressed about what I had to play because it was all tied to only that weekend. It's an issue with online games, you have to keep playing them if you don't want to fall behind or miss out on exclusives like this. But there are too many to upkeep them all. Lucky for me I got my mindset reorganized and I realize that 1) most of the items you get are purely cosmetic and nobody is really going to notice and 2) it is impossible to get it all anyway (especially now more and more games introduce season packs with even more unlockable content). My solution is put more focus again on single player titles. There I can at least go for collecting it all on my own pace, instead of being tied to timed events. Because I think that was my problem, FOMO combined with Completionism. And it's still a struggle as I often only have half an hour to play in one session, and then it is easy to just boot up Paladins/Rocket League and play a couple of matches, instead of diving into a more meaty single player game. But in the long run I get more satisfaction out of the latter. Edit: I was just reading this thread and I saw similar situations mentioned there about online games and their incentive of dragging you back in on a weekly/daily basis. And yeah it did have an exausting effect on me as well.
  12. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered (2019)

    Back in GC days I borrowed it from a friend but I remember not getting very far. We played it co-op as well but also didn't finish it. And I really did not remember that co-op was with GBA link only, oh those days! But I really loved the art style (still do) so yeah this will be a buy if it does have online co-op. The mechanism of combining attacks is great.
  13. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

    Well, we were onto something in this thread, colour-wise. Missed chance not doing the fur covered Joy-Cons! Dock looks great btw, but those Joy-Cons, no.
  14. Nintendo (re)Direct(ed) (13/09 11pm UK)

    Adding some fuel to the fire, I found this "leak" which looks pretty plausible: *Only click if you want possible spoilers!*
  15. General Switch Discussion

    It had the Funky Kong mode.
