  1. Thank you both very much for that! But it's okay, I'll have another dig through my emails just in case but if I can't find it I'll just give it a miss, since it will just end up perma boxed anyway haha! xD
  2. Are we supposed to have received our Zarude codes via email yet? 🐵

    Last time I tried to exhange Platinum points for a "free" prize it tried to charge me for postage. So I didn't bother. xD
  4. General Switch Discussion

    I really like the Mario themed Switch. If I didn't already own a Switch and was buying one now, I'd get that one.
  5. Just saw a video of this game on my Switch. Looks good and I've never played it before so I think I'll get it on its Febrerere release day.
  6. General Switch Discussion

    Random Switch-related thought, but I wish they'd put the original RBY and Stadium on Switch as some kind of single purchase/collection and with working Dodrio mode. Same for GSC and Stadium 2 for that matter.

    Merry Christmas everyone! ❄☃⛄🎅🦌🎄
  8. What Have You Bought?

    Bought some games for my Switch! In the last month or so I've bought... - Super Bomberman R - Bust a Move 2 (called something else on Switch but is the same game, I forgot already what it's called) - Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - FF7 - FF8 Remastered - Smash Bros Ultimate I already have FF7 and FF8 (not remastered) on Steam, but I'm well overdue an FF7 play through and my Switch has really made me re-appreciate console gaming again, so I bought it for that. I'm certainly not "Mr Hate PC gaming" now but often now if a game is on both PC and Switch I go for the Switch version. The Switch has just reminded me how nice it is simply to have zero compatibility issues, driver issues, hardware issues etc. You buy a console game, you know it (usually :D) has been tested and works on your system and your controller. Simples. Local split screen and playing on a TV instead of PC monitor, while possible with PC, is just easier on the Switch. With the Switch you can also play on the go, I'm probably never going to do that but it's nice to know the option is there. In conclusion, some pretzels. 🥨🥨🥨
  9. Oh yeah! Can't believe I missed that link. xD 😵
  10. I've just gone to... h t t p s:// And ticked the "I would like to receive marketing communications" box. Am I all set for a Zarude now or is there some different newleterry thing I need to tick? xD
  11. What Have You Bought?

    The unofficial Switch Pro controllers I ordered arrived and they're very good quality, much better than I expected. A third of the price, about the same size/weight as an official one, comfortable, comes in professional packaging (I know that doesn't matter in itself but it's a good sign), came fully charged and they seem "well built", as in, they don't feel "cheap" for a better word. I haven't tried it yet but apparently they work on PC too. Oh and they worked with the Switch with zero hassle. Obviously I don't know how long they're going to actually last, but they've ticked all the boxes they can so far. Slight catch: the USB wires they come with are really short, so they're only good for charging and no good if you like playing with your controllers connected. Luckily I switched to wireless play ages ago. Anyway, if you're looking for a decent extra/replacement Switch controller, currently I'd recommend one of these: Zexrow Switch Controller Wireless Switch Pro Controller: Electronics

    No way, on my first try, I actually found an online game of Super Bomberman R on Switch! Took a few minutes, but considering how old the game is, and that I've never found a game on PC that's pretty good! Game's a bit slow to respond to input online tbh (although that might be cause I'm using a wireless connection for my Switch :P). But it's playable.
  13. What Have You Bought?

    Well it was Black Friday today so I bought two more Switch Pro Controllers (well, unofficial ones but they have good reviews and look decent), Super Bomberman R and Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze. I already own Super Bomberman R on PC but I'm trying to get some local split screen multiplayer going as per my prev post, although I admit as a fan of the original Super Bomberman 2 it is nice playing it on a Nintendo console and a TV instead of my PC monitor. xD I played the first level of Donkey Kong Tropical freeze and I already think it has some of the nicest controls of any 2D/"2D" platformer I've ever played. I also really like the whole atmosphere of the game (so far), think they've done a brilliant job. Shame Smash Bros wasn't included in Black Friday. Although to be fair I think I'm set for games to play for a while now (still have Luigi's Mansion 3 to play, and still need to finish The Crown Tundra dex), so I'll get it later.
  14. What Have You Bought?

    Anyone member Bust a Move 2 for the PlayStation? Well... I found it on the Nintendo eShop! It's called ACA NEOGEO PUZZLE BOBBLE 2 on there. So I bought it for some local multiplayer fun. Now I just gotta buy a second controller. xD So I'll sort that tomorrow haha.
  15. Strangely so far, playing Sword, I haven't seen a single Shield Dyanamax Adventure exclusive, despite playing online, and I've caught 15 Legendaries in Dynamax Adventures. Not sure if the game prioritises the ones from your version or not. Or maybe you have to join someone with the other version via a Link Code or you just get paired up with your own version. I also haven't seen a single duplicate Legendary yet, despite that apparently being possible. Perhaps you only start seeing duplicates once you've already caught them all? Anyway, I think it's actually good fun using the rental Pokemon. Although the RNG can be really unlucky sometimes, it's a chance to use Pokemon you haven't yet used, gets you using different moves/strategies/etc. EDIT!!!! Okay so the very next Legendary I encountered was Kyogre, which is a Shield Exclusive and I'm playing Sword. After the first three battles going very well with no fainting it proceeded to wipe out our entire team with its Surf attack in two moves lol xD. BUT, the good thing is the game let me note it down so I can get it again. This confirms it is both possible to encounter the other version's exclusives without a Link Code, and that if you fail to catch it, you can easily have another go. SUPER EDIT!!!111 If you think you're up against Kyogre, try and catch a Pokemon with Wide Guard along the way, it's a life saver! ULTRA EDIT!!!111Oneoneone I have now seen a duplicate Legendary. I guess the game doesn't wait until you've got them all to show you duplicates after all. Guess if the RNG gets too bad I'll have to use my Shield save to get all the Shield exclusive ones and transfer 'em through Home.
  16. Are Legendaries found in Dynamax Adventures really 100% Capture Rate if you defeat them?
  17. Sorry about that I messed up my post! Fixed now. xD
  18. Had a quick go - done the first battle, caught a couple of Pokemon, done a Dynamax Adventure (not sure if I was lucky or if you always get it on the first one but I caught :D! After that I saved at Freezington Town. Seems like a decent start and enjoyed it so far (although I've not played it much)! Looking forward to playing the rest of The Crown Tundra.
  19. Super Mario 3D All-Stars (It's a out now)

    Q'APLAAAAAAAAAAA! For the first time in my life I have all 240 Blue Coins. But I'm not trading them for Shines after all that. They're MINE now! I had to use a guide/checklist to get them. And even then some of them were frustrating to find. I know it's a bit late since Sunshine is so old, but the Blue Coins are really dumb imo. If they had some kind of hint system and perhaps showing you how many coins are exclusive to specific episodes and I wouldn't complain, but some of them are so hidden and obscure and episode exclusive that it would take forever to find them all, without a guide. Next person's reply: "I found them all in an hour without a guide and I've never even played a video game before!" WELL GOOD FOR YOU!!! xD Anyway, all that's left is the 100 yeller coins and the final battle. Oh and Blue Coins aside, I still think it's a really excellent game!
  20. Your 2020 Gaming Diary

    Alright so I've gotten all Shines in Super Mario Sunshine EXCEPT: - The 24 Blue Coin Shines - The 8 100 Yellow Coin Shines - The final Shine for beating the game I've decided to go for the Blue Coins next to get them out of the way so that I'm not accidentally running into them while I'm collecting 100 Yellow Coins. But, I'm keeping the darn things. I can watch the 120 Shine video on YouTube whenever I want, and after collecting them all I don't wanna get rid of them lol. xD Anyway after that I'll get the Yellers and defeat Bowser.
  21. Super Mario 3D All-Stars (It's a out now)

    Just playing some Super Mario Sunshine. I've competed it a couple of times (minus the Blue Coins, I'm going to get my revenge on them this time lol). Could you always not long jump in it? I don't remember noticing not being able to do that last time I played it. O_o
  22. Super Mario 3D All-Stars (It's a out now)

    I reached 120 on Galaxy yesterday! Never played it before, really enjoyed it a lot. I'm gonna save continuing playing Galaxy for a while now. But I do hope they release Galaxy 2 sometime for Switch.

    Nice one thanks!
  24. General Switch Discussion

    Hey all, quick question about Luigi's Mansion 3? Is it a complete single player game? I'm about to buy it but I seem to remember something about it being really designed for two players or something? I'll be playing it on my own and I don't want to buy it if it turns out you can only play it two player or that if you play it single player you only get access to half the levels or something. Any help much appreciatedness!
  25. Super Mario 3D All-Stars (It's a out now)

    Just wondering if other people's interpretation of Galaxy's story ending is the same as mine. I found the cutscenes a tad confusing but I think this is how I see it.
