  1. What Have You Bought?

    I saw a page on Facebook posting screens of this game and the enjoyment they were getting so I decided to get it myself. Got a new years resolution to get more exercise to shed some of this excess weight I gained over the years, I got this to help my Smash Bros. game. Can't beat a classic Gamecube controller when it comes to Smash. Only downside is that it needs batteries. Since I got an Amazon Echo for Christmas, I decided to get some Smart plugs for the radiators, I imagine saving money on the energy bills this way. I needed a new coat, so I decided to get this one. And finally these for that GameCube controller I posted further up.
  2. Ring Fit Adventure

    I ordered this game today, I hope it will help me lose a little weight in the long run.
  3. Football Season 2019-20

    I was highly encouraged by the performance today, we didn't deserve to lose that game and Jorginho shouldn't have been on the pitch to equalise for Chelsea and turn the game ultimately in Chelsea's favour.
  4. Football Season 2019-20

    I'm calling it now, stick a fork in this title race, it's done. The 30 something year old meme is dying this season. Congratulations to Liverpool for their first league title in the Premier League era.
  5. What Have You Bought?

    I got this one too, finally saved the moneyto get one this year.
  6. Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield (2019, Switch)

    So after my loss of my shiny Purrloin, I decided to take some time out shiny hunting a Wooloo during play sessions because the whole Black sheep aesthetic was highly appealing to me and Wooloo is cute af. After 105 battles I finally got one and I'm feeling redemption.
  7. Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield (2019, Switch)

    I'm super gutted right now, I found my first shiny in Sword yesterday, but due to turning off auto save and my own stupidity, I didn't save when I closed the game and lost it and an extra hours worth of grinding and Pokedex completion. Only now do I find out it was actually that new ultra rare shiny with the gem like sparkle effects which is roughly a 1 in 65000 chance of appearing, if I didn't feel bad enough last night I certainly did tonight at this revelation,
  8. To be honest, I'm sure the West sees it as a more kiddy RPG that fits most peoples image of Nintendo which has the likes of Pokemon and Yokai Watch, I'm sure they would have seen more sales on Switch than Playstation if they released on the same day. Didn't Dragon Quest Builders 2 sell a lot more on Switch than Playstation 4?
  9. What Have You Bought?

    I read this game was a 3DS classic so I figured I'd give it a go. And of course for Halloween
  10. What Have You Bought?

    Cheapest I got them for was £62.90 from ShopTo with a silver member discount (£61.61 if you are a gold member)
  11. Nintendo Switch Online: SNES

    I started playing Super Breath of Fire, pleasantly surprised it was the original version of the GBA game I loved playing back in school. Pure nostaglia trip, just recruited Nina and now just wandering around because I forgot where I need to go next,
  12. What Have You Bought?

    Watched Vinny Vinesauce playing the game and decided to take the plunge, only £1 more expensive than physical and with the extra 200 gold coins, works out cheaper.
  13. What Have You Bought?

    Only shame I felt is paying full price for it. It doesn't feel like a £34.99 priced game to me, £19.99 at most.
  14. What Have You Bought?

    The Switch has fast become my console of choice. Sadly, my PS4 controllers both failed on me, I tried repairing them but I ended up making them worse, so I figure why not get on of those v2 controllers and see how it's better.
  15. Switch eShop Thread

    So I bought the game pass double pack a couple of months ago, rebought Splatoon 2 with one so I could do the Octo expansion. But I dunno what to use the other one on, I'm torn between Fire Emblem Three Houses, Links Awakening remake and Astral Chain.
  16. Gold Coin Collection 2019

    So half a year later, I did spend 500 points recently so it was more at one point..
  17. Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield (2019, Switch)

    To be fair, when it comes to visuals, we have to remember that the game comes out in 5 months time, I'm sure if they pulled resources from their new game for the final push in tidying the visuals up, it will look much better by release. What they showed at E3 is by no means the finished product.
  18. Football Season 2018/19

    For a player with a year left on his contract, that fee is incredible (Including the £50 mill in potential add ons), Chelsea have done well on that one. I expect Chelsea to spend big in next years transfer window.
  19. Pokémon Direct - June 5th: 2pm

    Why are these Pokemon Directs always right as I finish work? I would love to be able to sit down in a comfy seat to watch these on my TV rather than in the locker room on my phone.
  20. Team Sonic Racing

    Wisps were a mistake, I can't tell what half of them are meant to do and with items that is half the fun of a mascot kart racer. Another issue is the restrictive nature of just Sonic themed tracks, with all the different franchises and characters in All Stars Racing there was a lot more variety and potential. I do think it's a huge downgrade overall. The team Mechanic is the only redeeming feature of the game, but it just makes the non team racing even less substantial and dull to play. They should just (And I know some people would be against this) port All Stars Racing Transformed to Switch
  21. Football Season 2018/19

    Well Chelsea made that difficult, great saves from Kepa in the shootout. It's the first time in history that all the final places in European competition have been filled by a single nation.
  22. Football Season 2018/19

    I can only hope the defensive changes are made this summer, if the teams swapped centre backs I'd wager Arsenal would have won comfortably and this is a team that barely survived relegation this season, the stats are damning, after having on paper the easiest run in, we are dead last in the table for the last 5 games, that is simply not good enough. The only upside is that the Europa League is still very winnable but we have to repeat the performance in Naples to make the final.
  23. Football Season 2018/19

    Are Spurs gonna "Spurs it up" right at the end yet again? Sons red card was surprising in the fact you don't expect to see him do that...But Foyths red was just unnecessary which says nothing of how Dier didn't get sent off, 3 yellow card challenges, one of which should have been a penalty, yet only got one. I honestly thought Bournemouth weren't going to score. The door has well and truly been left open for Chelsea, Arsenal and Man U.
  24. Switch eShop Thread

    Well when I sold Mario Oddysey that price is what I got for it plus shipping. Picked it back up.
  25. April's Switch Lineup: What Will You Be Buying & Playing?

    To be honest, I've already opened it and invested most of my Thursday and Friday into it, it's not a great game but I've still been enjoying it, all those cards with all those new forms and art preys on my collector instinct and Dragonball fandom. You can build a pretty powerful deck early on so most maps are a doddle, got a load of Saiyans in my main deck that clean up most battles. The premise and dialogue almost feels like a meme game. You can't take it seriously.
