  1. General Switch Discussion

    Because Nintendo. Hence why we’ve had DKCR:TF and NSMBWUD (lol) at full price. At least the online is only $20, amirite?
  2. General Switch Discussion

    How much did you pay for it? I haven’t bought it yet and now I kind of regret not jumping in last week. The problem here was that prices were generally in line with Europe, maybe a little cheaper. I guess Nintendo had too many people taking advantage of it and put a stop to it, which is a shame as there are better ways to tackle that than wholesale increasing the prices.
  3. General Switch Discussion

    Same thing happened on the Russian e-shop. It's funny, they sent an email round saying it was due to the increase in VAT (from 18 to 20%), but after going on the shop this morning it is only the Nintendo published titles that have increased in price, and in no way close to 2%. Pricing is now significantly more expensive than in Europe and the UK. Good job I'm physical only for retail releases.

    I don't know what we will get, but I'd love to see Xeno X, Tokyo Mirage Sessions and Mario 3D World released. Starfox Zero would also be welcome. Nintendo Land too, but I guess It'd be impossible. Skyward Sword HD while we're at it please.
  5. Football Season 2018/19

    Why are United even thinking about Southgate? Laughable. Thoroughly enjoyed that game as a neutral. As much as it pains me to say it, I'm kind of glad United seem to be back now. It was just depressing watching them play so badly for so long.
  6. Brexit 2019

    One of the best things about not living in the UK is not hearing about Brexit at all. I was on the fence and didn't vote. Both campaigns were disgusting and neither was based on fact, though I could see advantages for remaining and leaving. The whole thing is a complete joke and the UK is a laughing stock around the world. I was back home last year for a couple of weeks and the atmosphere in the country has completely changed. If my family didn't live there I would quite happily never go back.
  7. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Awesome! My control stick fell victim to the dog when I left it on the floor a few years ago, so I need to do the same. How simple was it on a scale of Walking Simulator to Dark Souls and does it require a special screwdriver head?
  8. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe

    It's probably the best of the "New" series, but I have absolutely no desire to buy it again. I finished it on the Wii U (but without finding all the secret exists) so unless it goes cheap, it's a hard pass from me. More interested in the kind of sales numbers it does though, whether it can push a few more console sales towards that golden 20 million.
  9. 2018: A Year in Gaming

    My top games of the year, games which I first played this year, regardless of release date. 1) Super Smash Bros Ultimate 2) Celeste 3) Fortnite 4) Octopath Traveller 5) Enter The Gunegon 6) Mario Tennis Aces 7) Vostock Inc. 8) Xenoblade Chronicles 2 9) Dead Cells 10) Death Road to Canada Really didn't play much new stuff this year as most of my time was spent playing some of the big hitters from last year. Still got a lot of games on my Switch waiting to be started as well...
  10. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    I had already resigned myself to the fact that the online would be poor for me. Living in Russia and sharing my connection with 4 other people I thought I’d have no chance, but playing online has been so smooth, I’m really surprised. Hats off to Nintendo for FINALLY implementing good online in Smash. I was playing with 2 guys in Japan and one in Ireland the other day and there was only onc small hiccup when my internet crapped out. We should probably get on the voice chat app next time, looks like they’re focusing on that rather than text chat.

    75M can die in a fire. Awful stage haha.

    I’ll be along shortly
  13. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Yes! I am. I may actually be able to join for MK8 as well tonight but I probably won’t know until about 7pm. So I’ll write in that thread if I can play.
  14. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    We were just messing about, it was an open room but I think it’s max 4 players playing at once. I’ve left now and they’re all still playing. I had loads of problems on WiFi, especially with Rocket League and Splatoon 2, despite having a fast connection. Got my LAN adapter back in March and it’s been flawless ever since. The release day models must have some really shoddy WiFi tech inside them.

    Honestly, I’m surprised you’ve had so much lag. My experience with online has been pretty smooth so far. Only experienced lag 2 or 3 times, but when it was bad, it was baaaaaaad. Are you on a wired connection?
