    It looks garish and brilliant!
  2. Those cat things look GORGEOUS! Like 90's CG in a good way, love it. Also the pre-order plushes look nice but god knows I don't need any more so I'll be going for that gorgeous looking steelbook
  3. This is my fear, I think the new content looks good even if it is more Odyssey than 3DW but it's hard to tell if there's much content or if it really is just one giant level like you said. I'll be waiting for p/reviews to see how substantial or not the new content is.
  4. Paper Mario: The Origami King

    All the music in this game is great but yeah I absolutely love that battle theme! I finished this last week, for the most part I thought it was incredible, I especially loved Bobby as a character and thought the desert area was so fun to explore. I was against the notion that battles were pointless for the first half of the game as they give you coins needed for better weapons but it does become really apparent later on that there is no point as you get showered with coins eventually. I generously bought loads of weapons and collectibles and still had something like 60,000 coins at the end of the game. I really started to drift off in the spa and felt it was quite a slog to finish, especially with that bloody gameshow, though I'm not sure if that's because I wasn't into the area or if the game had just overstayed its welcome. It did redeem itself on that epic last section though. Overall it was a joy to play and I'm glad I got it as I was on the fence due to previous entries.
  5. Drunken thread ftw!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Had a tipple, ended up playing Cher Christmas songs to my folks. Going to bed now!
  6. Super Mario Maker

    How many nails can Nintendo actually get in the Wii U coffin?? Anyway, this seems like a shame, I'm sure it's a very low number of people still playing on Wii U but with Nintendo's vast reserves of money is it really necessary to shut it down? I think the writing is on the wall for online gaming for Mario Kart 8 on Wii U with this news too.
  7. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    That could be the case but I don't see a big need either side for it. Nintendo already has plenty of great recognisable characters in Smash so it's not like Nintendo would have to go begging Microsoft for it and MineCraft is the best selling game of all time so it's not as though MS are desperate for exposure either. To me it really is a celebration of gaming, if you want to point to suits pushing for characters then I think Byleth and Hero are much more up that alley. And honestly as long as stages like this continue to be in then I don't think MC looks out of place but I'll shut up about it now
  8. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    I don't think it does any more damage than the fairly hideous looking N64 stages
  9. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Steve and his comrades are a great addition. I got madly obsessed with Minecraft in 2016 after buying it on a whim on WiiU and carried on the obsession in a much healthier way when it came onto switch. This seems like a perfect fit and the only thing that would have made me happier is a Tokyo Mirage Sessions character but I guess that would fall under Fire Emblem territory and that has enough representation to last the entire Smash roster for eternity. I'm digging the multi-level Mario Maker type stage too. Banjo boomers and Minecraft kids can all be happy! And this was initially shocking but makes perfect sense now, The Super Mario pack exclusive to WiiU and Switch is one of the best to ever grace MC and it's consistently at the top of the Switch charts, or it was when that's something I paid attention to a year or two ago
  10. Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros.

    I don't think I'd play much Mario but I'm damn tempted to get this as a clock.
  11. General Movie Thread

    Glad to hear you liked it! I try not to read any opinions/reviews until after seeing a film so as to not skew my initial judgement but it was impossible not to come across the many different instances of outrage and disappointment aimed at this film lol, I will give it a shot soon. At what point did it change to an online release? I know the original release date got delayed due to covid but when cinemas re-opened there were still posters for it and I assumed it just got delayed. I wonder what made them skip theatres instead of just waiting it out like Bond. The main two Disney remakes I remember from last year are Lion King and Aladdin for good and bad reasons, Aladdin because I loved the cast and music and Lion King because I thought it was the most boring and soulless drivel I've seen from them yet So will be interesting to see where this one lands.
  12. General Switch Discussion

    Yesssss boy! I can't wait for Hot Shots Racing, hope it plays as well as it looks!! And I'm secretly hoping for some mega cheesy Daytona-style music too. As for me, I only just recently finished Mario64 again so probably won't bother with that for a while but it would be lovely to play through Sunshine again. I'm not getting 3D All-Stars day one but I will pick it up at some point, saying that I'm not desperate for it or willing to jump through Nintendo hoops either so I'll just get it if I can but I'm not gonna chase stock store to store or haggle with scalpers.

    I cba to do the research Ashley lol but from memory it does seem like Nintendo are always top heavy, GameCube, Wii and WiiU felt like they had a pretty similar path with a lot of first party releases their first 2 years, a major slow down in year 3 and then basically nothing but Zelda in year 4 with Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword and BOTW. Also I'm out of the loop with this Namco stuff, what exactly happened in 2017?? Let's be thankful the Switch is the switch, just imagine Nintendo supporting a console and handheld right now. Pokémon Sword and Shield was arguably the big Christmas title last year which would have been for the handheld as well as the likes of 51 Worldwide Games and maybe Animal Crossing (that ones hard to judge). Their output really is unbelievably low, the failure of WiiU is almost a blessing because at least to the layman things look fine with the likes of 3D World, Pikmin and Xenoblade despite us all knowing it's a console version of Weekend at Bernies.
  14. These look really cool and is the kinda product I'd have loved as a kid. Just like Labo this looks really inventive and is a nice departure from games but not something I'd personally want (or have room for!) I wonder if they'll ever release a mobile companion app to use with it instead of just using the switch to broaden its toy appeal/make multiplayer easier
