  1. Pikmin 3 Deluxe

    Definitely think all of these great games deserve a second chance, especially Pikmin 3. Hell, give me decent controls and I'd give StarFox Zero a second chance. The problem is the complete and total lack of new games, not helped by the complete lack of any news. It's always ports of relatively recent games or 1.5 sequels. Disappointing doesn't cover it. The Switch has so much promise in 2017... So much I know I sound like a broken record at this point, but I'm fed up. Hello, my name is Nick. I am a proud member of the (paid) Nintendo Switch beta test community circa 2012-2016. This is me, on the left, addressing Nintendo (right) on the question of what (paid) Switch beta testers can look forward to from Nintendo in future Nintendo Switch releases: No...?
  2. Pikmin 3 Deluxe

    2020 and Nintendo's attitude to stuff like moblie gaming, the Joy-Cons and now this is really starting to turn me off. They simply don't give a shit about the 14 million people who actually supported them during the worst period in their history with the Wii U. They had some great games during that period and it was a great little console, but the fact they are using these remakes, not as tentpoles, but as major releases is dumb af. Their pricing is also hilarious and completely disrespectful to the consumer who has continued to support them. They are living in a dream world if they think I'm going to continue to fund this idiocy. I'm voting with my wallet, won't make a difference, but Nintendo have seriously dropped the ball after an amazing start with the Switch. Is Brain Training (for £30 ) really what Switch owners want? I hope they get eaten alive in the next gen and that their arrogance and complacency comes back to bite them hard.

    Pikmin 3 has been de-listed on the Wii U eShop. Nintendo are having a laugh.
  4. What Have You Bought?

    Very sleek. Love the separate compartments.
  5. What Have You Bought?

    At that price I hope it is a somewhat exotic material or has a unique hand-crafted shape. Maybe it's a smart bin? Otherwise, I think you've been had Pics please!
  6. Pikmin 3 Deluxe

    Jealous of you not having played this AMAZING game. I'll definitely be skipping though. Bought it for Wii U along with everyone else who stuck with Nintendo during that console. Now being faced with dropping another 50 bones on a game I already own, no doubt with worse controls. Coming out in October and up for preload already. Big warning sign that Nintendo has nothing big for this year. More ports rumoured, direct still absent... With every full price port Nintendo release, they push me further away 2017 is never going to be replicated until it's time for Nintendo to actually make an effort. The new consoles can't come soon enough.

    That's the one I was on about! Remember having a lot of fun. Think I must've rented it a couple of times because we definitely didn't own it.

    That's not correct I'm afraid

    Loving how Red Dead Redemption 2 looks.
  10. Halo Infinite (November 2020) (XSX/XBO/PC)

    If the core gameplay remains the same and the battle pass goodies / micro-transactions are purely cosmetic, it seems sensible to make it F2P. People who just want to play can ignore the cosmetic stuff. I'd prefer it if that stuff wasn't there too, but it's not difficult to ignore. I think it's pretty clear what the most lucrative multiplayer model is now, so ignoring that seems silly. This is pretty much what they have in MCC. You can't spend money or buy a battle pass, but the more time you play, the more cosmetic stuff you unlock over various seasons. I don't think it detracts from the experience at all. It's still classic CE / 2 / 3 / Reach multiplayer. A lot will depend on how it's implemented of course.
  11. Halo Infinite (November 2020) (XSX/XBO/PC)

    The thought of playing games at 120hz is very appealing to be honest. Especially for FPSs and stuff like Rocket League. But I've always held off on upgrading my monitor as I have a feeling it will ruin other games (particularly 30fps) for me. I can't imagine going from RL in 120hz to Dark Souls or BOTW on Switch, for example. Would be jarring as hell. Good to see it getting support though. I feel 60fps is enough for me and I will never be good enough at any game to feel the tactical benefit of 120fps. F2P multiplayer is a good move. It means the player base will be huge. However, I'm sure it would have been anyway, and this does open the door for shady mechanics. This gets a wait and see from me.
  12. Haha, @Ronnie that is great stuff. To be honest, I would be perfectly OK with Wind Waker taking the best game of all time N- Europe. Also, we finally have confirmation Banjo-Kazooie > Mario 64. Glad we have finally, after 23 long years, come to our senses.
  13. Formula 1 2020 Season

    Apparently his mum was in hospital which is why he flew home. Feel super bad for him to be honest. This virus can do one, so tired of it now.
  14. Formula 1 2020 Season

    I'm sure he will have been tested many times since two weeks ago. I find it quite unlikely that he already had it in Hungary and that they took two weeks to find it. Reading reports that was he photographed with fans in a restaurant in Mexico during the break and he likely picked it up there... Pictures on instagram seem to confirm it. Pretty silly really.
