  1. Metroid Dread

    So an hour and a half and I don’t know how many retries I just beat the final boss. Great game, thoroughly enjoyed it, even when the bosses gave me grief.
  2. Metroid Dread

    So as many Metroid players know the game is a great one for expert players to sequence break, getting items early and getting to section early. Well it seems this game is no different and people are already doing that. However the best part Is that the developers put something in the game for those that are finding this. Gonna put it in spoiler tags just in case.
  3. Metroid Dread

    So I’ve made it to Raven Beak and he kicked my butt so I’ve gone back through the areas collecting as much as I can, going to the places I haven’t been and basically “painting” the whole map (as in covering every inch of it). I’ve found some of the boost puzzles to be challenging, but I’ve managed to pull them off. Samus with all her abilities somehow seems over powered compared to the start of the game, the screw attack pretty much makes her invincible but this is great for exploring every inch of the planet. I’ll be covering more of the maps before I head back up to have another go at Raven Beak again. Hopefully he doesn’t put up too much of a challenge.
  4. And the controllers are out of stock. Hope they put more up. Really would like one.
  5. Animal Crossing Direct October 15th 15:00 BST

    It will be able to be used on the main game if you’ve bought the DLC. I’m guessing you may have meant standalone. I personally loved the updates. Some nice new features, a few good little updates and two major changes in the visitor island and DLC. Cooking added just means I need to find a place to plant the veg. The first person camera mode looks cool, permanent ladders, new characters, new emotes, some new items. Shame they said it was the last major update but I’m going to assume this was planned over a longer timeframe but didn’t happen cause of the pandemic. So it’s all come now. Oh and also still playing every day here Also a little confused over the DLC and NSO sub bit. Hope they clear that up a bit.
  6. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Oooh pick me! I’ll take Timeless River (that’s the black and white old timey one right). And yay, @Ugh first aid will be here to school us in the ways of Rosalina.
  7. Metroid Dread

    Think I’m getting closer to the end, or at least two thirds though.
  8. Metroid Dread

    I thought that at one point too, but it seems the game does have a somewhat linear route through the game.
  9. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Villager just chasing a butterfly is nice too.
  10. Metroid Dread

    Right some more play in and more impressions.
  11. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Love the details. Wario and King Dedede reactions and Dr Mario and Game and Watch down in the corner there.
  12. Metroid Dread

    Mine are slightly bent too but nothing to complain about. Been playing a few hours and I’m getting both frustrated and loving the game. I am; enjoying what I have played so far as it’s satisfying which you defeat an E.M.M.I
  13. Metroid Dread

    I love that the game is in a bigger box than the Switch OLED Model. It really is a nice special edition. Just had a flick through the art book. 191 pages and lots to look at. It looks very impressive.
  14. Metroid Dread

    Yay. It’s surprisingly heavy.
  15. Metroid Dread

    Me too woohoo
  16. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    How else are you supposed to read it? Lol
  17. Metroid Dread

    I’ve had a pretty much 100% black out of this game and can’t wait to play it. I’m not a huge Metroid fan, never got into the older games, but the Prime games on GC really pulled me in and were great to play. I even ordered the deluxe set thing from the Nintendo store. I expect them to be shipping them real soon as I’ve still not seen confirmation that mine has been sent but it was like this for the last game I ordered there. It was sent Thursday evening and arrived the next day.
  18. Favourite Switch experience (so far)

    The first thing that really comes to mind is the whole aspect of the Switch being both a home console and handheld and that switching from one to the other is simultaneous. I mean I’m playing on the TV, I take it out the dock and I’m instantly playing again. No delay or anything. This also makes it great when there’s a power cut as it just switches to handheld mode and no loss to the game I’m playing. As for games, Breath of the Wild and Mario Odyssey are up there for me. I was never into open world games and liked my games to have some kind of linear progression. But BotW really did change that. You can do the game in any kind of order and however you want, and even now, people are finding new things, new ways to kill enemies, and funny exploits. It’s amazing how many different ways I’ve seen people complete a shrine or certain parts of the game. Mario Odyssey was just the perfect Mario game for me at least. Visually stunning, controls were tight and perfect, and cappy was a nice new addition. Plus you get to go to the moon. (Yes Galaxy was in space too) I guess that’s why I love it so much, as Galaxy was my favourite Mario game before this. Oh amd you get to turn into a freaking T-Rex. I’ve also found that I’ve bought more indie games on the Switch than on any other console. Favourites include Oxenfree, Limbo, A Short Flight to name a few.
  19. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Another fun night of Smash with @Glen-i and @Dcubed who joined in for the last 30 minutes or so. (Why is it so convoluted just to get the dang link for the video to paste here)
  20. Animal Crossing: New Horizons

    They were a pain for me. We should have less tree bugs this month so they may spawn a bit better. I’d usually go round my island from 5:30 till 7pm amd usually only see 3 or 4 if I was lucky. Definitely walk by trees slowly, they scare easily and you’ll miss them. Best time was the first hour as the sunset makes it a bit easier to see them. Closer to 7 and it seemed a bit darker to see them. Otherwise just walk round and round
  21. Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) - 8th October 2021

    The white variety looks awesome but like has been mentioned, I just don’t play in handheld enough to warrant buying it. If there was more addition than just the better screen maybe I would
  22. Mario Golf Super Rush (25th June 2021)

    Yup, whilst the two new courses have layout like the Rookie course, do not be fooled, they are much more hazardous in the terrain. That special shot on NDC was just odd. I pretty much helped you on that hole it seems. And I still can’t tell what happened.
  23. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    6 minutes of myself and @Glen-i from Thursday nights smash. Mostly KO’s from the matches with a couple fun bits. The final clip is possibly my best ever comeback and an amazing finish to that match.
  24. Nintendo Direct : 23.09.21 (11pm UK time)

    Nah. We’ll just get a cake for that like this year.
  25. Nintendo Direct : 23.09.21 (11pm UK time)

    Surely they have to make some mention of new Animal Crossing content, we know they mentioned that we will get new content but they need to let us know what’s happening, (and not just Halloween stuff) brand new stuff.
