  1. Nintendo films

    I think the saving grace behind this is that Shigeru Miyamoto (I'm sure he is) is so involved that surely he won't let this be a complete failure. I have hopes that it will surprise people, though I assume there will be a group of people that are gonna hate it no matter what.
  2. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Rough night but some fun games. Chair to the head for a sudden death win was pretty nice from me.
  3. Lego!

    Amazing piece of kit, I don't normally get Technic sets but this was a must have. Only issue is I couldn't get the front nose to fit as it was described in the booklet. It's supposed to rest lower at the front but the connectors just didn't want to fit as they were so I did a minor alteration and it fir a little higher up.
  4. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    Some great racing tonight. And some very close GP's too.
  5. Marvel's Phase 4

    So how long before someone is able to lipread that second trailer and give details of what was said?
  6. Lego!

    Decided to make a start of the McLaren F1 car today. Engine and rear wheel suspension done. That's just bag 1. 60 pages! Bag two has a total of 110 pages of instructions. I'm assuming that being Technic building instructions are longer. Steps are more detailed and cause of some of building it seems that there are only a few parts per step. Looking good already though, the engine all moves and that suspension is looking solid.
  7. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    LOL nope. Great matches as always some very fun times. My favourite was getting @Glen-i with Bayonetta's FS off screen.
  8. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    @S.C.G I usually just skim your stream but sat and watched it today in full. It's interesting to see other players driving style like that in full, how you handle items and your line through the courses. Have a tip though, not sure if you do it to be safe, but your starts could be much better. Press A when the second light comes on to get the full boost off the line. I notice you tend to wait for the countdown to hit 1 before you press it. Maybe you know that just thought I'd mention it. It's a very tight margin between full boost and fluffing it though.
  9. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    A few from me tonight. Some great races and some close stuff.
  10. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Good work @Glen-i, seems this game can still throw new things at us all the time. I'm sure there was something I did and we both started asking what happened over VC about it. Oh yeah, Bayonetta walking up the steps at the end of Mushroomy Kingdom. There was the warp star above them so I just started holding right hoping something would benefit me, and well she just walked up the stairs.
  11. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Some great games there last night. I made one a lot closer than it should have been, I think against @Ike. And that run of two of us having the same character for like 5 games at the end there. Worst was my ZSS against you two Minecrafters, I just had no way to stop you both mining. I hope @Glen-i has got that match saved where Ike died through some odd means (or so it looked like on the Nintendogs stage.
  12. Gratification of returning to defeat games

    I have similar experiences but it's more newer games that I'm in the middle of that get put down when a new game is released and I Neve go back to them to complete them. Last one was Luigis Mansion 3. Never got round to finishing the first time I played it, but pick it up again about a year ago and played through from start to finish that time. I think Bayonetta 2 is like that too. Older games? I'm sure there are lots of my SNES ones that I never finished and I know I never finished Prime 2 and 3. I bet there's loads I could go back to a complete.
  13. amiibo (NFC)

    Smash Amiibo Steve and Alex finally on Nintendo UK store £25.99 These seemed to take a while to arrive but anyone still wanting them, they are on Nintendo's site now.
  14. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    Great racing tonight.
  15. Obviously fire would mean it takes place under Hyrule nearer the earths core with loads of Magma and underground volcanos about. There, I've already mixed it up a bit for the third game.
  16. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Since it was a win for me I just enjoyed it even more. Sorry @Ike
  17. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    I wholeheartedly agree with this. I used to get so frustrated when I''d make a tiny error that put me mid pack in the league and it would ruin the whole evening. Now I can just say "that's Mario Kart", cry/laugh and go on about it. I don't get annoyed and still enjoy the rest of the evening.
  18. amiibo (NFC)

    Also finding it odd that there is no sign of Steve/Alex double pack yet it is supposed to be released today. I've resorted to Amazon just to be sure to get one.
  19. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    That was awesome racing @Glen-i. Some amazing close racing tonight, and some great item usage. This finish wasn't needed for me to win the GP as I was ahead of @viceview51 but through a tiny bit of luck and some skill I pulled of a great win.
  20. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    That was mental.
  21. N-E Mario Kart 8 DX Get Together

    I wondered who that was. Don't forget we play till around 20:50ish depending on the last GP so feel free to join whenever.
  22. The Orville: New Horizons

    So I was looking for something to watch and noticed this was on Disney+ so decided to start watching it. I think I'm 6 episodes into it and have been enjoying it so far. Was never a huge Star Trek fan but always seem to like these more comedic/spoof type shows of it. Only trying to watch one a night and that seems to be a good way to go.
  23. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

    Found this and thought it was an interesting watch.
  24. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    I knew I came last but that was a lot closer at the top than I thought. At least I had fun and thats all that counts.
  25. AEW Fight Forever (Spiritual Successor to No Mercy)

    I like the look of this but I've had no interest in AEW so far. It just hasn't clicked with me, so not sure if I'll pick this up but it is great that we are getting a decent looking wrestling game on the Switch and not those reskinned 2K WWE games that I would loved to have bought. I remember one of the first that came to Switch, you needed an extra SD card for the 32GB of data it needed to install before you could play. (or something like that)
