  1. Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy

    Physical delay! Sauce
  2. Dicey Dungeons

    I took the plunge on this too! Enjoyable for the short amount of time I've played, really wanna dig in more but also really wanna sleep so will hopefully get some proper time with it over the weekend

    Man that played Mario Kart 8 on launch day for WiiU relives the good old days on Nintendo Switch
  4. Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy

    I'd like to see the sales numbers on this and whether or not the big negative online reaction has trickled its way down to the casual buyers who would pick this up on nostalgia that don't have much exposure to the gaming world other than the respective online store front they occasionally buy from.
  5. Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy

    It has been saved! And I don't know about Pokemon but this at least makes Sonic look like much less of a disaster. Colours Ultimate seemed awful on Twitter but my personal experience with it was great with just the odd audio glitch. It gave me a false sense of security thinking many of the GTA problems/glitches were rare or infrequent so I was really disappointed to play it and actually feel as though the Twitter response was forgiving - It is absolutely awful on my Xbox One S. I'm sure it's not as bad on Series XSPS5 but the frame dips and awful shaders make it feel like I'm playing on a Wii U.
  6. Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy

    Deary me, that rain is dreadful! Between this, Sonic Colours and Pokémon DP, 2021 seems to be the year of remakes that seemingly should be simple get spectacularly messed up.
  7. Shin Megami Tensei V (Switch)

    I'm getting PTSD from this gif It didn't help that the last save point before him was a few corridors away from the actual battle so I always had to slog through enemies before getting there. In defence of SMT3 they did have the option to lower the difficulty but I didn't out of stubbornness having spent the first 10 hours on normal, alas I had finally lost steam by the time I thought maybe I should drop down a level. And thanks I will, after the fight with the TMS Shadow Dragon in the arena I know how obsessed this series can be with buffing and debuffing lol I most likely will still pick this up but I think I will wait a bit until it's a bit less than the standard 49.99!
  8. Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy

    Matt has found work post Wii Sports at least
  9. Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy

    It's a shame it has ended up in quite a state but I did start to get suspicious when we got closer to release with no new Switch footage. I would say I'd wait for a sale but given this is Rockstar and Nintendo who knows if/when that will happen so for now I will make do with San Andreas on GamePass!
  10. Shin Megami Tensei V (Switch)

    I'm surprised to see they kept the Tokyo Mirage Sessions UI, I definitely thought that would just be a placeholder. In regards to the game I'm really on the fence havingg loved TMS but I got SMT3 a few months back and enjoyed it initially but hit a road block pretty early on (some pirate skeleton) and it has put me off a bit.
  11. Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania

    I completed Story Mode last week and it was a great time! I wish they had an equivalent story mode for Monkey Ball 1 as honestly I can't see myself doing the 3rd challenge mode of Monkey Ball 1 in one sitting even with endless lives lol. Unless I just keep putting my switch to sleep and commit to not playing any other games for a week or something. I unlocked the DX levels from Monkey Ball Deluxe and I'm having a fun time but I noticed something with the design of these stages. In Monkey Ball 1 and 2 you'd get extra bananas for going harder ways but it's to the extreme in the DX levels - The harder ways have so many bunches of bananas and in literally every level! And some levels are super easy just going the normal way but insanely hard going the optional banana way, it's a very different feeling to the levels from 1 and 2 but then again the DX levels from Deluxe are just levels from the cancelled 3 AFAIK? Like they got that far into development and the merge with SEGA happened and they slapped them in a DX bundle instead. From what I've seen so far, EVERY level has an optional way with tons of extra bananas, unlike 1 and 2 where it was just an occasional level giving you that option. It got me wondering about the cancelled number 3 and I found the only image from the cancelled game which is a patent. It has the subtitle Banana Crazy and this was before the Banana Blitz/Mania naming convention so it makes me think they were central to the gameplay. I wonder what the gimmick was? My best guess is unlocking levels with a certain banana count as the amount of bananas is just so excessive even in levels that aren't hard that it makes me believe there must have been something besides 1up's attached to them.
  12. General Switch Discussion

    It's still my favourite rendition of Call Me Maybe. God I was so hyped about the Wii U back then that I was genuinely so excited to get Wii Karaoke U. It was great fun to be honest, hundreds, maybe even thousands(?) of songs on that service. Nintendo definitely doesn't feel the same since Iwata left but arguably have much more output and third party support. It was like a monkeys paw trade off to lose all personality in favour of great sales and lots of software. Obviously the latter is better but still, what I wouldn't do for more Non-specific Action Figure and Miiverse in my life. And that kick ass internet browser with the cosy red curtains! And Tokyo Mirage Sessions! Man, they barely appealed to anyone back then but fuck did they appeal to me.

    Stumbled across this new release and it looks incredible - Like if Monkey Target, Pilotwings and the gliding levels from Spyro had a baby. To top it off it has a City Pop soundtrack! I've added it to my wish list and will pick it up soon, I'm just too swamped in games atm to justify another purchase!
  14. I don't know how to feel about this. A lot of the additions look cool but it all feels so disconnected. I wish they'd have given us more land mass and had the caravan park as part of the existing island and also allow you to move in these new designed houses to your island instead of that archipelago. As is it just feels like there will be so many loading screens and aeroplane/boat trips which is an especially harrowing thought knowing how bothersome some of the Animal Crossing load times can be. Price wise I would not be willing to pay for the standalone DLC, it definitely seems a bit too steep. It is a much nicer prospect as part of the NSO Expansion but then there is also the caveat that you have to subscribe for a minimum of 1 year meaning this would cost a minimum of £35 if I went that route. I'm really not sure what to think atm so I'll leave it on the back burner, I have plenty of other things to be getting on with anyway. Perhaps I'll see how much the free DLC engages me and make my decision from there.
  15. I just noticed that too, it's a real shame. I'd have definitely tried this for a month or two to play some N64 classics and get some mileage out of the Animal Crossing DLC but doubt I'll pay for the year as I just know that given their track record the N64 releases will be small and slow and I also doubt I'd get knee deep in AC long term other than perhaps a nice few weeks checking out the new stuff.
