  1. Turnip Prices Thread - Playing The Market In New Horizons

    Extremely but I've only got six rotten turnips.
  2. So I was half-watching, half-listening to this video after logging off for the day and getting some grub together. I nearly choked when I glimpsed this Mii out of the corner of my eye, which quite frankly, I'd recognise anywhere: @Mokong @Vileplume2000 @matty_gibbon @Tellyn N-Europe has been cited in this video for Gamecube games that were upgraded (?) with motion controls for the Wii! The sites coverage for New Play Control! must have been killer for the search engine algorithm to have seen fit to shine some light on this corner of the Internet. N-E woz 'ere.

Hard to believe it took so long for them to get Pikmin 3 out the door since it seemed like they were gearing up to have it follow the New Play Control! release of the first two entries. Anyone got any lasting memories of these games from N-Es heyday?
  3. General Switch Discussion

    Have you had any joy with matchmaking since posting? This is the first time I've heard of Aeolis Tournament but I see there is a demo so I think I'll put it on the list of things to try.
  4. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (March 2020)

    Sure, I don't doubt it. I remember last year reading that people were making decent bells off selling insects which wasn't something I'd been doing--for me it was shells and fish. It's cool that there are different approaches to how to tackle Animal Crossing. @Helmsly Well done, indeed. That's a nice milestone to accomplish!
  5. Argh I wish I'd seen this the other day. Think I need that one! It's news to me that not only does Saharah give stuff out, but she gives specific stuff out? I don't bother much with her as I always thought it was a lottery what you get.
  6. I opened and you aren't right here... Birthday boy is Klaus, over on the right side.
  7. No worries, let's see what happens. Jolly Redd is docked with: Wall fan Toaster Rock-head statue (fake) Academic painting (fake) Solemn painting (fake) Famous painting (fake)
  8. Got a birthday today if you fancy it, @Sméagol (or anyone)? Preferably I can open between 6-8 so let me know--I'll keep an eye here later for any takers.
  9. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (March 2020)

    For the daily bells, of course.
  10. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (March 2020)

    Just a heads up that the Nook Points feature has been added to the Animal Crossing section of the Switch online mobile app!
  11. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (March 2020)

    "Look! I dug up an earth egg!" Here we go again!
  12. That's really well done, @Helmsley (even if it's not yours)! I've seen some stables done like that on my travels but the use of customised brollies in this one is pretty cool indeed!
  13. Balan Wonderworld

    Totally get what you mean! I tried the demo the weekend it went up. Going in, I expected to enjoy some quirky platforming, then as I played it, that expectation changed to me trying to like the game and appreciate what they were going for but in the end, I just couldn't find anything to latch onto. I think I'd still pass this up if/ when it's on sale.
  14. No worries. I forgot about that one yesterday or I would have posted during the day as a heads up. There's another coming up before the end of the month so I'll let you know!
  15. I am opening now and will leave it idle for half an hour if you see this...
