  1. I have only played through the first level and spent most of my time trying to figure out a good control setup. I had an idea for what I wanted to do with it but quickly realised it just wasn't possible πŸ₯² Like you, I had went with 'normal' due to being able to press a button to jump but then you can't move your character when aiming your weapon, as far as I can tell. I'm not sure how much of an impact that will have on the game overall!
  2. Only now seeing that Brad is leaving EZA.. Those guys are finished! They have definitely lost their most important, and entertaining, voices over the last few years and I feel like they have effectively lost Huber too with how life has been treating him for the last couple of years. Brad was the strongest ally remaining and while Blood has come out of his shell a little more over the years, so has Isla to the detriment of the few things that I watch or listen to from them now. I think her style of humour just doesn't quite gel with me Interesting to see what happens next, I guess, but the writing has been on the wall for a long time. The early days were fun.. but it's over!
  3. Metroid Prime Remastered

    I love Metroid Prime Remastered but would genuinely be more excited for Other M to come to Switch than I've ever been for Metroid Prime 4!
  4. Yeh.. I already liked it a lot before but I went back for all of the gold ranks and collectables over the weekend and it was amazing I'll definitely be back to set a score in the Arcade Mode if I ever get a free evening and maybe even attempt to see how far I can get in the Yolo Arcade!
  5. I'm never much interested in these but having fallen for Sayonara Wild Hearts all over again I'd love a sequel to that.. ..though I've just checked and those guys are working on Lorelei and the Laser Eyes, which was due to release in 2023. I guess we may see more of that..?
  6. Tears of the Kingdom is the only one of the nominees that I have cleared.. and I absolutely wouldn't vote for it. The other game from the list that I have played (up to the end of World 4 at least) is Super Mario Wonder so I guess that would have to get my vote!
  7. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    I thought any sort of redesign would be drastically different and more likely to fit comfortably in a media unit below the TV. How hilariously wrong I was! I haven't had much interest in the console in the last couple of years but while I maybe didn't expect to be drawn in by a new model, I thought it may at least be a little more appealing to make it tempting in some small way.. but I'm good πŸ˜…
  8. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

    I spent the last few years expecting Tears of the Kingdom to strike it.. but the only thing it struck consistently was a nerve!
  9. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

    The map of the depths tells its own story..
  10. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

    I thought I was entering the final battle only to find out there's more. I haven't felt this upset for a while I was certain this was ending tonight. Just please let it end! I'm too far now to walk away.. but I do quite want to..
  11. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

    Starting to question if I even wanna see this one through at this point πŸ˜•
  12. Planned Purchases for the rest of 2023

    Pikmin 4 arrived today but I'm busy with Metroid Prime Remastered so I'm not sure when I'll get to it πŸ˜… Tears of the Kingdom can continue to rot on my shelf along with Advance Wars until I'm feeling the desire to return to the relative tedium 😐 For the rear of the year, I have the following games on my radar: Ghost Trick Pikmin Pikmin 2 Super Mario Bros. Wonder Metal Gear Solid Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater Wario Ware: Move it! I may also pick up EA FC 24 if the improvements over FIFA 19-23 are substantial enough give the move to Frostbite and, though I'm not really in need of adding any more RPGs to my life ever again, Super Mario RPG might sneak into my collection. EDIT I'm gonna let the spelling error slide..
  13. There's almost certainly variation between what is possible, what I want and what it will eventually be but I'll try to outline something within the realms of possibility πŸ˜… Name: Nintendo Switch Plus Release: October 2024 I envisage a console very similar in style and concept to the Switch OLED with capabilities similar to but hopefully slightly beyond that of the PS4/XBOX One. I feel like I want it to be capable or playing almost anything and everything, including acceptable ports from rival platforms and also all legacy content. Part of this will be possible due to the new Joy-Con Plus which will be a lot like the current controller but with slightly improved sticks and, preferably, analogue ZL and ZR buttons. The other difference will be (and I'm not sure how necessary or feasible this is) a pointer at the top. I can only really see this being achieved by making the R button about half the length it currently is and having a small camera directly beside it. Would your fingers get in the way? Quite possibly.. Anyway, that would bring with it the possibility of Wii ports or versions of the games on NSO along with GC games too which make nice use of the analogue shoulder buttons. Am I going to be able to play Nintendo Land and Starfox Zero on this thing? Absolutely The dock will have greater significance than ever before this time. Just as how the Wii U Gamepad communicated with the console, the Nintendo Switch Plus will be able to communicate wirelessly with the dock to not allow those Wii U type experiences as well as offer the opportunity for dual screen gaming with the eventual DS and 3DS inclusions on NSO Plus! OK, genius.. you haven't even considering Virtual Boy. Haven't I..? A separately purchasable headset dock will allow for the Switch Plus console to slip into it to give a just about functional VR option, albeit primitive compared to much more expensive alternatives on the market. Not only will it finally give us the Virtual Boy games that should have made it to 3DS, the wireless communication with the dock connected to the TV will allow for other players to interact with the player wearing the headset by playing on the TV. All purchases made on the current Switch will carry forward, as will all of the access to the NSO apps, but the on board storage will still only increase to 128GB. The dock will also have a seperate Micro SD port the allow for even more storage beyond the internal storage of the system and Micro SD inserted into the Switch Plus. It will make it easier to transfer games between the dock storage and handheld storage without having to keep deleting and downloading games when the fridge is full! Ultimately, it all sounds like wishful thinking stemming from a desire to be able to access everything all from one place and not be limited by performance or control input. Do I think it will happen..? Unfortunately not. I do think the next console will be similar in form to the current Switch but I also believe Nintendo will hit us with the sort of twist that none of us had even contemplated. I'm excited either way. It feels like it's time!
