  1. Splatoon 2

    I'm on team trick.
  2. N-Europe Video Game Club

    Castlevania, because I have never played either it or my NES classic
  3. Yoshi's Crafted World (2019 - Switch)

    But how can you like Ash? He is "ResetEra, the person". Unsubscribed from the podcast because I couldn't stand him. Also, Derrick's Christams videos with his Gran are the sweetest content available on YouTube. You have no soul. Of all of the them, Derrick clearly has the most love for Nintendo games, I would have thought that would be right up your street? Each to their own I guess.

    Wrong. Derrick is the best GX member, followed by Andre >>>>>>>>>>>> John >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Ash.
  5. Nintendo Switch paid online coming 2018

    Yeah, if you're in Holland then there's a good 2,000km between us. Sucks for me I guess, I'm not geographically close to anyone on this forum. What does low latency do? I really do hope that Nintendo invest some of this money from the online into servers, or is that wishful thinking? In 2027, when Xbox games are running exclusively via the cloud, I guess we can at least hope to be playing NEW Mario Kart 8 DX on Nintendo servers instead of P2P.
  6. Nintendo Switch paid online coming 2018

    Hahaha. Oh god, it really is NeoGAF 2.0 over there.

    It really is incredible how snappy the app is. More games of course would be nice, as would more options (button mapping, borders etc.). For 20 quid a year, I think it's worth it. There's something very novel about playing NES games online with someone.

    I just went online and saw he was playing a game, clicked join and I started watching his 1P game. When he saw I'd joined he backed out and we started 2P. Then I got the notification in the app for voice chat. Very smooth. You can opt to play offline or onilne. If you're online, any friends can join the game you're currently playing. The app is great, very slick experience.

    Dived in to a game of River City Ransom with @Nintendo Fan, absolutely hilarious, but mostly because the game runs at 10fps in 2 player mode Was a good laugh even though we both died at the first boss, the clapping thing is pretty funny too. I got a notification from the app to start voice chat but I didn't bother. This service has a lot of potential, especially if SNES and N64 games are gonna hit soon. Just a shame that RCR runs so badly...
  10. I'm inclined to agree with everything you've written here, but I actually consume basically all my gaming content on YouTube. It's geniunely sad that written-form game journalism is all but dead, but there is still a load of fantastic content out there. If you can avoid the shitty clickbait stuff, I think we're almost in a golden age of gaming content. I don't have a TV connection these days, and almost everything I run through my TV is gaming stuff either with the Switch or gaming discussion on YouTube. I know you already know about Easy Allies and Jim Sterling, but I feel their content is just as good as anything that was in written form. Colin's videos get a watch every week, as does Spawn Wave, which is a daily YouTube gaming news channel, everything you need to know in 15 mins or less. He also has a weekly podcast with interesting guests, a few let's plays of newer releases and a LOT of cool tech breakdowns and stuff. Worth a sub. I'm sure most people are familiar with Digital Foundry, which consistently produce incredible content. DF retro is one of the best series on YouTube, take a look if you haven't already. The Gaming Historian is also great in a similar vein. His recent hour-long documentary into the origins of Tetris is one of the best YouTube videos I've ever seen. An immense amount of work was clearly put into it and it's every bit as good as any long form article could have been. CleanPrinceGaming is another YouTuber who does weekly "essays" about current topics, DidYouKnowGaming is great for trivia and interesting, little known facts about popular games, Metal Jesus Rocks and My Life In Gaming focus on retro stuff and collecting. Arlo? Arlo! Basically, the content is there and plentiful, it's all a matter of carefully curating stuff to your specific tastes, and while it can take a while to find everything you want, once you're settled on your favourites, you'll wonder how you managed before. It is a shame that the written word has taken a back seat, but I guess it's just a changing of the times. It seems people would rather consume content while they're cooking a spagetti bolognese or driving to work, rather than find 30 mins to flick through a magazine or sit at the computer.

    +1 for Link's Awakening
  12. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

    Definitely wasn't me! I've actually never played a Monster Hunter game before...! *hides* I met another Nicktendo on Splatoon 2 a while back and spent the entirety of the match hunting him down and splatting him. Unacceptable levels of Filip Miucin like behaviour.
  13. General Retro Discussion

    I've got issue 16-60something still stored in my parents' loft. Try to go through them every once in a while when I'm back home and they always bring a smile to my face. I subscribed back when I was at school and when it was delivered it always felt like such a massive event. Agree completely that we have too much news these days, dunno if it's simply age or the fact that info was so scarce back in the day, but the magic of getting a new game and discovering everything has definitely worn off for me.
  14. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (2017)

    Wrong! XCX has the BEST soundtrack of all the Xenoblade games.
