  1. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD

    I'm enjoying this game so much! Now I want them to port EVERY ZELDA EVER to the Switch!
  2. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD

    I've done the first two temples, I then spent lots of time exploring and farming stuff to upgrade/purchase everything I could. Now I'm just exploring the desert. Really enjoyed this a lot so far could be my personal game of the year (since I've never played it before :P).
  3. Nintendo Switch Online: SNES

    I just want them to add Super Bomberman 2. xD
  4. General Switch Discussion

    I know this is a bit out of the blue, but I've been wondering about the Nintendo Switch's battery. Is it a special "Nintendo Switch battery" that's specifically designed for the Nintendo Switch and no other device uses it? Or is it just some standard battery that Nintendo uses? I can see that the battery is called a HAC-001, but from Google I'm unclear which of the above it is? I'm also wondering, should the battery run dry, would the console still work when plugged in? Obviously if the battery is dead no more handheld mode, but would it still "make a complete circuit" and thus be able to be powered on when plugged in?

    Little hint for early in-game Rupees. Best I can tell Bamboo Island is the fastest way to farm Rupees. I'm sure there are better ways later in the game but if you want to upgrade all your stuff as much as you can early on this worked for me. I tried just roaming around collecting Rupees the old fashioned way (including digging around the volcano), and playing that other minesweeper-like minigame, and in the end Bamboo Island's minigame was the fastest. I managed to get from 300 to 1400 Rupees in about 20 mins this way. Just repeatedly play the minigame, pay the 10 rupees, spam the B button to get past the dialog quickly, and do about 8 upward slices, then rightward or leftward slices until you're between 15-19 slices. Spam the dialog again, earn 30 Rupees (or 20 profit), and repeat. Also, if anyone else is new to this game, Seed Satchels and Bomb Bags are repeat-buyable. I kept buying them thinking at some point I would hit some kind of maximum (like 3) lol xD. You can sell them at the place where you store stuff though.

    Well I've just completed the forest temple and at this point I've enjoyed every minute so far. I don't get why this game is so divisive? It's a Zelda game that plays like a Zelda game and it's great fun! xD

    Ah okey dokey, thanks!

    Hey all, does anyone know what it means when that smurf woman says "You are XX% prepared for this area?". Is it telling me that there are more pieces of heart, weapons, bottles etc I can still find at this point before proceeding? Or is it just telling me how full my inventory or health is or something?
  9. PC Gaming Discussion

    I think it looks cool, is a good combination of price/specs, and I really like how they're sort of bringing a "console experience" to a ton of Steam games. Plus it lets you install your own OS, so there's a lot of opportunity for gaming, but not JUST gaming, it's powerful enough that you could probably install Windows (or a Linux distro), attach a mouse/keyboard/monitor and use it as your main PC. I'd probably dual boot myself, use Steam OS for the most part and have a Windows on there for anything that wasn't compatible. I think it's gonna sell well. If I had money coming out of my ears, I would buy one, and probably also see a doctor. But, in the end it's not for me because it doesn't really give me anything new. I already have a PC decent enough to play the games I want, and I don't really bother with handheld gaming. Even during the GB/GBA days, I'd rather use my Super Gameboy or GameBoy Player, so yeah. I also think the button placement looks really uncomfortable, and the console is quite large, even quite a bit larger than the Switch. So that's a bit off-putting. Maybe in the real world it's not so bad. In conclusion, Steam Deck looks really good and I like it, I think it's gonna do well, but in the end it's not for me. Also it can't hurt for this to be on the market, might keep Nintendo on their toes a bit. xD

    Played it for a few hours already lol. Never played before, seems great so far, no complaints! I also laughed when...
  11. General Switch Discussion

    Was never really into Nickelodeon. There was always something better on Cartoon Network. Although I won't be buying it, this game is definitely great for fans of those shows though!
  12. I wonder what's going to happen to the normal Switch in terms of selling/making them? If you're buying your first Switch now, and you want to play on your TV it kinda seems daft when you're already spending £280 to not just pay the extra £30 and get the nicer/newer model. So I'm thinking there might be a price drop on the normal Switch, or maybe they'll stop making them and sell the ones that are left?
  13. This sums up exactly what I was going to say, except I rambled on for ages. So I'll just quote this instead. xD
  14. Breath of the Wild 2 looks excellent and glad it's out in 2022. Metroid Dread looks pretty good, good chance I'll buy that at some point. Advance Wars... I usually enjoy it for a few days and get stuck/bored lol so I might skip that one. Nothing else really caught my attention. Sad that no Switch Pro, no Mario Kart 8 DLC or 9, no classic Pokemon on Switch, no BDSP, no Arceus, no GB/GBA/N64 for Switch Online, no Prime trio and no Prime 4. Sooooo my takeaway from Nintendo E3 is: I'm glad BOTW2 hasn't been delayed. xD

    I must admit, and this is someone who loves their Switch and uses it a lot, the lack of achievements is annoying. What's even worse is that developers don't seem to bother implementing them AT ALL even though they have on other platforms. They could put a menu in the game that shows what achievements you've got, even if they're not part of the Switch eco-system. With regards to the Switch Pro, I think £400 is kinda reasonable if it's reasonably more powerful than the current Switch. I'm thinking roughly half way between the current Switch and the PS5/Xbox Series. This would open the doors more more third party games on the system *cough* FF7 Remake *cough*. Sure, there'd be compromises, but the PS5 and Xbox Series are currently so much more powerful that many devs are just not going to make their games for the Switch. If the Switch Pro can bridge that gap a bit, well by golly that'd be pretty darn swell.
