  1. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    That's it's only true spot. Roll the dice to determine the GP winner. lol
  2. I thought this game had so many loops to jump through cause all of the licenses that we wouldn't see this one NSO. But if we do, then that would be great. I've never been a huge FPS fan but I loved Goldeneye. Now if only that controller Is easier to get.
  3. I've been checking every day, I know it's useless to check like that but I hope it'll pay off one day.
  4. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    Don't forget Baby Park.
  5. Have no fear I sent one when I got home. Hope you like the colour.
  6. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Just the one match from this weekend but I think the was the best of the evening. If I recall, I was Lucas, @Glen-i was Sora and @Ike was Sephiroth
  7. Mario Strikers: Battle League Football (June 10th)

    I know no one seems to use it, but this does support the voice chat function in the NSO mobile app. Plus most the time we just use discord when we play MK and Smash now.
  8. Your Gaming Diary 2022

    Had the sudden urge to play through Mario Odyssey again. I didn't want to do 100% (don't even think I did that on my original save, but just felt like playing through the main game again. Well two sittings and around 7 hours later and Bowser was defeated. Didn't realise this was such a short main game. I pretty much just followed the story picking up any moons that I saw on the way and didn't really need to back track too much to find any extra needed moons. Still a masterpiece of a game and so much fun to play.
  9. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    One day it will be a theme night involving Hero only and the only move is down B, we all stand close together and just go for it. Last Man standing. alternative as @Glen-i just said over Discord, first person to lose all stock or life wins.
  10. The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

    Loved that game and this may make me play it again soon. I have however just restarted a game of Mario Odyssey so it may wait a bit. Will be interesting to see your progress on Hero mode.
  11. Mario Strikers: Battle League Football (June 10th)

    I managed to play a few games with my teammate being from here. @nekunando and @Londragon if I recall, and to be fair the games were smooth and ran perfectly. Now, I'm sure that the issue was just cause you had two human people controlling essentially 4 players on screen, but that was not ideal (and this seems to be a similar consensus that I've read elsewhere). It can be rather confusing over who is controlling who, and who will control the player that has the ball passed to them. Now I'm sure this will be a lot easier when you are either playing alone and essentially controlling all by yourself, or you have a team of four friends playing and you all know who you are controlling at once. But that needs some rectifying going forward. I've read people saying either reduce it to 3v3 or make the pitch larger. For me I didn't find either needed that. Yes it can be frantic and sometimes you couldn't always make out what was going on or who had the ball, but I think that is part of the game. It's a frantic free for all football game. I'm sure if you have one person controlling one character, then you will be able to tell. Controls weren't too bad for me. There is a lot more going on in this game that past games. Your basic passing and shooting, but then you have tackles, dodges, items, dashing, it does start to feel overwhelming mid match. Most the time I completely had forgot I had items in the two slots, and when I did, I just spammed X to get rid of them. I hardly used the dodge move, again just forgetting it. In the tutorial there is a team-mate take move where you can shove a team mate into an opponent for a harder tackle, yeah just try doing that in a match. Generally I liked it though, managed to score some pretty decent goals that weren't hyper shots that were actually pretty good team goals. I'm hoping enough here will get it that we can have a full team of four people which should make it easier on who you know you are controlling. Plus that may make strategy on defence come into play too. Most the time whilst I was playing there were big gaps that you could get into and have a free shot.

    I didn't see frantic items at first and thought this was a joke theme night. 😂 Also poor excuse for a week delayed theme, you had a whole extra week to come up with something. 😆
  13. Looks like a trip to Hollywood is in order. That Mario Kart ride looks awesome.
  14. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    We need more tracks where stuff like this happens.
  15. Mario Strikers: Battle League Football (June 10th)

    Anyone tried the Mario Strikers First strike demo thing yet? I know we can't do matches but you can go through the tutorial and get to learn the basics. Seems pretty good stuff, a lot of moves to learn and get down perfectly. Then there are items and straight up kicking other players. I think it\s going to be hilarious.
  16. It took over two year since Redd first visited but it is finally done.
  17. Disney+

    Nice, just seen that the new live action Pinocchio releases the same day on Disney+ too. Though none of the remakes will ever do that scene again, (at least I don't think they will) it's the one where all the children are drinking, playing pool and smoking and turn into ass's. I know it wouldn't be the right thing nowadays but that scenes is ingrained in my memory for how it was.
  18. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Here's a short clip from Saturday plus additional moment from a few weeks ago. The first clip is just an amazing finish to that match so I had to include it. This weeks highlights include possibly one of my greatest moves with Kirby to finish the match off, and easily the funniest self KO ever.
  19. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Great matches as always some really close ones and a nice variety tonight. I don't know if I should feel bad for breaking the "Samus always wins" rule at the end there, but it was such a great close match that I think its more than OK.
  20. Lego!

    So glad I've never been into Star Wars cause the amount of Lego sets would destroy my wallet. I did pick up Singapore Architecture set recently so now have all of them again (all the skyline ones, not the singular buildings)
  21. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    I was going to pick it as well, but hit random too soon. Awesome races. Some great finishes tonight. Hilarity all through.
  22. The Wrasslin' thread

    Think I may have just got lucky with a pair of tickets. Been checking TicketMaster a bit and noticed resale tickets are popping up now. Some costing more than others but just saw a pair of tickets for a little under £50 each. In the £112 seating area. So I've taken the plunge and gone for them. They are facing what will be the stage and are off to one side. Can't wait. Yeah it's far back and probably high up but I'm sure they will be fine.
  23. The Wrasslin' thread

    Didn't get presale, and am hoping I can maybe get some this weekend. I did notice that they seem higher than I imagined for the cheapest seats. £112 for the cheapest. I won't care that they are like right at the back as I think the atmosphere there is going to be insane no matter what, and I would love to be a part of that.
  24. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Don't worry, I'll be back this week.
