  1. General Switch Discussion

    Bluetooth support, higher res and bigger battery would be my guess for the higher spec. Only thing I'd want is a bigger screen, but that's probably the most unlikely to happen.

    Halo trilogy on the switch wouldn't be a bad call. The portability would be great.

    If the question is who would we want to 'join the fight', then any character with a history and a potentially unique set should be welcomed. Theres no doubt that Minecraft is a milestone game, it's just it wasn't really part of Nintendo's history. Then again neither is persona. However Minecraft is the most likely by far, being that it's still a viable product for Microsoft, and they would only ever allow this if they could get something out of it.

    Does the Microsoft relationship mean we might start seeing some of the Rare IPs back on a Nintendo console? Just imagine how lovely that would be. Perfect Dark remaster on the eshop? Conker in Smash. One can dream.
  6. Surely F4 will be the first one to be shoehorned in? XMen will take years of scene setting - you'll have to some kind of crises event to explain the sudden appearance of mutants. F4 you can just slip right right in.
  7. The Google Console

    @Hero-of-Time so much I agree with there.
  8. The Google Console

    That's the read I got from it as well. Transferable save states may allow streamers to publish their builds for their subscribers to use as well. There's too many unknowns to reason how this will do, but at least they know their market. But putting the business sense of this behind and getting to whats important - fuck Google they aint getting my money. They got enough. The software will be bland as all hell - highlighted by the presence of Jade Raymond, helm of the blandest game series of all time, so I doubt I'll be missing out on anything. This bit really pissed me off (I'm in a bad mood today): "Someone could be watching a trailer for a game, click the option to play now and be playing within five seconds. “No download, no patch and no install,” Harrison said. “Stadia offers instant access to play.” He said it reduces the friction between being excited about a game and playing it." Fuck off with your friction bullshit. You know how impulse buying works, and you know the easier you make it to buy the more you can take advantage of people's weakness to it. Delayed satisfaction is a virtue, an indicator of self-control and a path to creating a good work ethic. This erodes that. Older generations give a lot of shit to the millennials and younger generations for how much we spend, but this is what we're up against, the power of big corporations, massive teams of data informed, elite educated sociopaths spending every last waking hour trying to figure out how to squeeze every bit of cash out of individuals who have never been more defenseless against their methods. /rant. Blood sugar low.
  9. Marvel's Phase Three

    And here we are in total agreement. With this movie in particular it seems Marcel forget what has given their Marvel heroes such an edge over the DC attempts over the past 10 years - that they are flawed, and therefore human. When they come together in Avengers or civil war it's these character flaws that create the drama. Captain Marvel in particular needed that grounding of humanity since the whole film centers around the curious alien nature of her backstory. Anyway, an easily forgotten bridge film and deserving of far less of our time than we've already given it. On to Endgame, which cannot possibly live up to the expectations I'm placing on it.
  10. Marvel's Phase Three

    I feel the need to separate out two things here, since I'm quoted in thread. This is a bad movie, but not because of the identity politics. Theres one, maybe two girl power moments that appeal to that market that really stood out to me, and of those one was a good song so I can't complain too much. Hell the problem with the movie was that there wasn't enough of the 'identity politics', cause that would have at least meant she had an identity. Instead she's just a bland generic superhero. They hint at a possible arc of her throwing off other people's expectations of her, of her not restricting herself a role someone else has determined for her (a positive message which fits nicely into the Zeitgeist), but it's a fart in the wind in terms of what you see on screen. Also, and sorry if this come across as an attack on you Grazza, I assure you it's not, but I don't get the victimisation thing with men and this movie. A lot of us on this board are English right? Well we've been the villains in every Hollywood movie for as long as I can remember. And they're normally white males. Does that not bother you (the royal you)? Why now with a movie quite obviously meant to make little girls feel good about being who they are? Surely our self-esteems can survive such a strike, play the villain if it teaches heroic values to the next generation.

    Yes. Absolutely. I'm playing a sonic at the moment I want to try out.
  12. Marvel's Phase Three

    I'm sorry to say I thought it was absolute crap. Really wanted it to be good. There were ideas in there that could have been fleshed out into something great, but we're just dropped half way through. The following things were lacking quality: script, pacing, plot, characterization (Marvel in particular, poor old Brie had nothing to work with) and more. Most disappointing is that it was obviously trying to push out an empowering message to a maligned portion of the community (which I think is a good thing, should I have a daughter in the future I want her to have a good superhero role model) but it almost couldn't decide on which message it wanted to go for. So instead of a story which underlined the importance of bravery or self expression or sisterhood it just came out as a bunch of empty asides. It felt like a bit of a gap filler, a box to tick, but instead of being down on it I'm looking forward to seeing what the Russo's do with her. There is a fun, jock of a character which we saw glimpses off, that I'm confident they'll be able to highlight.
  13. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Been playing Sonic a lot over the last week. In Ultimate he seems to be a lot more the character I wanted him to be when Brawl came out. He fights like I want a sonic to fight, all about speed, timing, movement - getting your opponents frustrated by how fast you move. A lot of fun, though I've got to get a lot more practice in on confirming kills. Generally this game has been exceptional in characterising all the move sets. Megaman and Mario feel like Megaman and Mario, heavy boss characters feel like boss characters. What a game.
  14. Football Season 2018/19

    What a game to visit Old Trafford. I knew we'd win even when we were down - it's a confidence I haven't felt since the Fergie days. Everything about the club and supporting it is a world away from what it was like under Mouriniho. If you haven't seen Pereira's goal I insist you seek it out - are their any better first goals anyone can think of? Martial's maybe.

    Nice, I'll give him a go. Thanks mate
