  1. The Android Thread

    There is a distinct lack of Android love in the NE forums, with both iPhone and Windows 7 Mobile getting their own threads. So, lets start. The last few months have seen Android really take off, with HTC, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, Acer and Motorola - amongst others - jumping onto the Android bandwagon, and it has been predicted that Android could, by 2012, become the worlds 2nds most popular mobile after Symbian OS - more popular than iPhone. With Apples apparent by-proxy attack on Google (the Apple/HTC lawsuit), the next 12 months will certainly be interesting for the Android OS. Widgets, apps, skins and hardware - this is our place to talk everything Android, Google's stunning smartphone OS. And for those unfamiliar with Android, here's a link to an overview.
  2. General Switch Discussion

    Afternoon, has anyone picked up one of the new batch of the Animal Crossing Swiches? I have now had three, all need to be returned since the left Joy-con has a faulty join at the bottom resulting in the Joycon being uncomfortable to hold, especially for long periods. Anyone else had some issues?

  9. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

    Can someone remind me what the multiplayer options are? I vaguely recall co-op, was there also the traditional turn based multiplayer?

  11. Nintendo Switch paid online coming 2018

    There was a setting somewhere to reduce lag; apparently the visuals take a hit (?!). Played a few games with @dazzybee last night, and from what I recall the reduced lag option appeared to do, well, reduce lag.
  12. Nintendo Switch Update Ver. 6.0.0

    It's always your account playing, you're not sharing it with another persons account. It's no more "sharing" than handing someone your console and letting them play on your profile. As far as I can tell, every other platform holder lets you share your purchases across a family group (or similar) - that's peoples expectation of sharing digital purchases.
  13. Nintendo Switch Update Ver. 6.0.0

    It's not really "game sharing"; despite Gamexplain insisting it is. You have a primary Switch (on which all accounts can play, as they could before), you can now log into a secondary Switch where only you can play your digital games - other account holders/profiles are blocked from doing so. As a workaround, others could play on YOUR profile (allthough this blocks you from playing on your Primary Switch). You don't share you games library, which is a shame as far as I'm concerned; Nintendo wanted Switch to evolve to a personal device for every member of the family - something that will not be acheived if families cannot share a games library.
  14. Lightning Deal 400Gb SD £106

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/400gb-sandisk-micro-sd/s?ie=UTF8&page=1&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3A400gb sandisk micro sd An excellent deal. Sorry to make a post only for this, wanted to highlight. Feel free to delete once the deal has gone.
  15. Nintendo Direct: E3 2018

    They have nothing else to show! A lame Direct, a really poor showing. With Nintendo getting the big guns out last year, we really needed a statement of intent today. What we got was a couple of low tier announcements and a handful of reminders. Disappointing.
  16. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

    People really should have changed their expectations when the Go branding was leaked; you can blame no one for your disappointment but yourselves It was clear that this was going to be something different at that point. I think it looks a great entry/re-entry point to the Pokemon series; it's (perhaps) not aimed at the current Pokefans, but the Go audience of casual and lapsed players and plays to the strengths of that. That's a good thing, Go has invigorated the brand and there's lots of people who might welcome a casual experience on a home console. Year after year I have said i'll get the next Pokemon and never do. So i'll say it again, i''m going to buy this.
  17. Bayonetta 1+2

    Does anyone know what the discount is in these in the eShop? I can't find it anywhere!
  18. Splatoon 2

    Count me in for tonight.
  19. Happy NWii Year!!!!

    Dodgy puns aside, happy new year to one and all!
  20. General Switch Discussion

    Devastated for you. I'm pretty sure that if left on the plane staff would hand it in as lost property. General public will be too eager to get off the plane to look for forgotten items to half-inch. It demonstrates the need for save backups for Switch. This is something even the 3DS had (albeit a faff to use, but it's something). This should be a priority for Nintendo; we don't need cryptic comments from Reggie, we need a concrete answer as to why Switch didn't launch with save back ups and what they'll do (and when) to fix this. For most people the system is insured and could be replaced. The saves are not replaceable.
  21. Mario & Rabbids Kingdom Battle

    The rabbits look great in costume, but having official Mario in this just feels off.
  22. Super Mario Run (iOS/Android)

    Are we doing friend codes for this? If so, 2784-1349-5732.
  23. Rime

    @MindFreak You can't expect people just to buy it; people feel pretty cheated by the move. It's arriving later and at an inflated cost which has not been sufficiently justified. If people choose not to buy that's fine because that's their perogative as a consumer. I'll be picking it up, sometime, when it's discounted by £10.
  24. General Switch Discussion

    Worried about all this talk of scratched screens. Might pick up some felt to glue on the inside of the dock.
