  1. General Switch Discussion

    Sorry but that is poor reasoning; people were doing this because the games were prohibitively expensive (costing more than physical copies in many cases). It wasn't about paying full whack, it was because the games were priced at more than full whack. As stated above, the eShop prices in these countries are now more expensive than the UK shop. Which makes no sense. And if Sony are doing it, doing so well as they are, at the very least we can say it mustn't have been hurting their bottom line too much or they'd have patched it back in the PS3 days.

    Why not? It's what Sony does. You can still buy games from any region's shop you want on PS4. IMO it was extremely useful for Switch as a way to mitigate some of the "Switch tax" common to much of the pricing.
  3. General Switch Discussion

    Ah, so the cheap eShop prices workaround might be coming to an end then. A pity.
  4. I think he meant the publishers/shareholders rather than the developers, because he quoted "the real customers are the investors".
  5. Assassins Creed Odyssey

    Perfectly valid criticism, but I must confess I'm a little surprised about the RDR2 comment - I also came from RDR2 and man, I don't think I've played a game recently that controlled as badly as RDR2. It felt like the game actually hated me at times and didn't want me to do things like easily get behind cover, walk where I wanted to or aim weapons consistently. AC: Origins is far less realistic in the animations/controls/horse controls but I was really grateful for it, as it meant I could pelt across a landscape without dying, even if it sometimes looks goofy. I really do think this is one of the most stealthy games in the series yet just because as soon as enemies spot you in a reasonably populated place, you get fuuuckked. Brazier lit, mercenaries on your back, and enemies with lots of health that take time to whittle down outside of assassinations. Upping your assassination abilities and equipping assassin damage+ gear I have found while playing stealthily is the most efficient way to play, and running away if you're spotted to try again. Not sure why they added bows as it never seems worth it - regular arrow shots don't seem to kill and you have to waste adrenaline on arrow abilities to actually kill. I have had some glitches in forts though - my game dropped to like 1 FPS with periodic freezing on a couple of occasions and required a save reload. And I do find there's a lot of stuff, but I've come to learn what's worth bothering with. Most of the small camps and such aren't worth dealing with.
  6. Assassins Creed Odyssey

    Odyssey is far more weighted towards stealthy assassinations - it can take a while to take elite enemies down unless you assassinate them and when there's lots of enemies surrounding you it's a real pain (complete contrast to say AC Brotherhood - remember how killing an enemy started a chain and you could then one shot every enemy around you, one after another?). I really like it. There's a lot of ways to level up and the main character is much more fun to control. They've got some really good side quests too like the cult and mercenaries, and naval warfare, all rolled into one game.
  7. Assassins Creed Odyssey

    I've been playing this a fair bit over the weekend and absolutely love it. It feels like Black Flag again in terms of the exploration, I really do like having the proper ship back. It's amazing how making your character into more a superhero has made the game much more fun to play, like taking no fall damage at level 20 and being able to launch your spear (and chain) to assassinate at range. Really like the Witcher-lite take on branching decisions too, makes the story feel more meaningful.
  8. Job woes/wins

    Have to agree with this. The common factor in all of your recruitment woes, EEVIL, is you. When reading your recent post I don’t see why you waste time typing these responses when arguing with certain people like recruiters will achieve nothing good. Obviously they will put you forward for nothing now. It also wouldn't surprise me if your name became semi-blacklisted somewhere now due to the way you are talking to these people - it's often a small world in these circles. Always think "What am I going to get out of this?" when you're tempted to say things like this in a work setting.
  9. Mario & Rabbids Kingdom Battle

    Been playing this and really loving it. More games should make tactics-style spin offs.
  10. Mario & Rabbids Kingdom Battle

    So this game is on sale at £15 right now on the eShop, until 7th Jan. Or £12.79 if you buy it from the Russian eShop. I smell a bargain! I'll be getting this for sure.
  11. Dragon Quest XI

    Man, just hearing you guys talk about this game makes me want to play it. Roll on Christmas!

    If it's an old joycon then it sounds like the usual blocked/weak signal issue (e.g. a character will carry on moving after releasing the stick). Even though you're likely out of warranty try contact Nintendo and explain the issue. They fixed mine, albeit that was in warranty way back when. You can fix it yourself with conductive foam.
  13. I’ll be getting this for Christmas I reckon. Just hoping it holds a candle to DQVIII!

    How much do you value party chat and being able to invite friends?
  15. Let’s be honest, nobody can ruin his life any further than what he has done, and continues to do, off his own back. It’s easy to chalk it up to stupidity, but in truth he must know what he has done but refuses to actually admit to it and apologise. It’s less stupidity, and more plain being a jerk. I won’t say any more on the matter, as obviously his career is pretty much done and he suffered for it, but this guy seems to be a sucker for punishment. It would be good for everyone if he took a break from t’internet.
