  1. Starlink: Battle for Atlas (do a barrel roll!)

    Its been an absolute bomb on all fronts. The starter pack dropped in price very quickly and now all of the extra ships and accessories are half price at various shops. Ubisoft must have lost a lot of money on the project. Honestly, I'm looking forward to playing it. I think I'll fire it up once I'm done with the World of Light mode on Smash Bros.

    Nah. However, last year we had a high magnification X-Ray machine in the lab that was originally used for inspecting PCBs. I wanted to get a GameCube off of eBay and stick it in to see if I could find the hidden Dolphin logo. Sadly, I never got around to doinh it and the machine was no longer any use to us, so we sent it back.

    It's hard to give specific advice as you can customize your fighter to how it suits you. Have you been spending your points to upgrade your skills? Also, if a certain element of the fight is troubling you then try switching support spirits to help even the odds. You could also leave it and come back once you're leveled up some more. Early on I struggled with a fight that had me tackle numerous metal Mega Man fighters. I came back later and destroyed it with a better setup and stronger spirits.

    I think it's absolutely fantastic. It's easily the best single player mode in a fighter that I've played.

    @Aneres11 if you open up the menu and select party you can change your spirits. Your primary spirit will have a total power level. If you look at the bottom you will see orange and blue bars. These are attack and defense stats that both add up to the total power level. As you level up these bars and your total attacking and defensive power will increase. For example, my level 99 Geno spirit has 5250 attack and 4750 defense. This gives a total of 10,000 power. When picking a primary spirit some will be attack based ( red sword top left corner ) and others will be biased towards another stat, depending on the icon in the top left. Your primary will have slots on it. The more slots the better as this will allow you to equip more support spirits. Depending on how good these supports are, some will use multiple slots, while others may just use one. Usually the better the ability they grant then the more slots they use. This is how you really go about customizing your fighter for each kind of scenario. Fighting in poison? Then equip a support that negates that effect. Hope that makes some kind of sense.

    @S.C.G I use that SNES game a lot at work. When I first started the job ( 6 years ago now ) I was tasked with finding an interesting PCB that we could X-Ray and use as a show piece. I wanted to use a game cart and ended up buying Vortex off eBay, mainly because it had the Super FX chip on the board and I thought it would be interesting. To this day we still use it when we get schools visiting the lab. Lots of the kids find it fascinating that the PCB I show them ( it's stripped away from the cart ) is in fact an old Nintendo game.

    Yeah, I unlocked him this morning. My setup for most matches is to use Kirby ( I never changed ) and equip Geno ( level 99 ) for a big attack boost, Deep Breathing ( attack up on down specials ), Hal Emmerich ( start with Beam Sword ) and Bonus Fruit ( extra stamina ). I've been able to clear most stages easily with this setup. Abusing Kirby's down special makes short work of a lot of enemies. Sakurai you sly dog... There's certainly plenty of content in this mode, that's for sure!

    Play on normal. I struggled with the Pauline spirit battle this morning. It's a toughie and I spent ages on it. I only managed to beat it because the AI killed itself.

    Good luck playing them all!

    An online meet up thread has been created for those wanting to organize matches and for pre and post match banter.
  12. I figured I would create this for those who are looking to play online. This will stop invites and session times getting lost in the main thread.

    As expected, the session with all the lads was absolute chaos. 8 player smash starts as a laugh but eventually the novelty wears off when winning a match comes down to just pure luck. It was still a decent evening and plenty of laughs were had but I was glad to get back home and play Spirits. I can actually see what is going on in this mode!

    I'm intrigued to see why they are in that situation and how they get out of it....or something like that. Yeah, I was wanting a fighter that would have lots to do. Heroines is supposed have plenty stuff to unlock and Blade Strangers has a decent sized campaign.
