  1. Mario & Rabbids Kingdom Battle

    Got a 10 hour return train trip to France coming next month so this'll be a great way to pass the time.
  2. Project Octopath Traveller

    Great news. Captain Toad debuted at 17th on Wii U in the UK, so that's gotten a great bump as well.
  3. Indie Games

    It's fantastic, I just wish they lowered the difficulty a tad.
  4. Hollow Knight

    Finally beat the final boss, you were right Unbreakable Strength was a big help, and actually I didn't use Up-A as much as a lot of people were suggesting. Stopped using Joni's Blessing too, it was handy being able to focus soul during a couple of breaks in the fight. The game is a masterpiece. I'm not sure I'll be able to play another Metroidvania after this. I have some major annoyances with it but they don't diminish the overall package (too much). The amount of polish the game has is just outstanding, so many little touches. Anyway, highly, highly recommended. Wow. EDIT: having seen it again and reflected, I take back what I said about the ending.
  5. Hollow Knight

    I'd love to use (Fragile) Strength but I have no charm spots left. Using Joni's Blessing, Shaman Stone and Lifeblood Core. Tried spamming Up+A and manage to get to the fourth phase with the platforms, but man, only with 3 or 4 masks by that point and not much soul. I'll do it eventually but it's not easy. I'm also wondering whether I made a mistake going straight to the true ending and bypassing the regular one, which I've not seen.
  6. Hollow Knight

    The true final boss is impossible
  7. Hollow Knight

    I'm pretty sure this is the best Metroidvania I've ever played, and better than any 2D Metroid I've played at least. Not sure I'll be able to play another game in that genre after this.
  8. FIFA World Cup: Russia 2018

    I live and breathe rugby, normally can't stand football but there's something very pleasing about Southgate and the team he's assembled. Not full of the usual egos and big personalities. Makes watching them (as I do every world cup) much more intriguing. The success helps too but I would have watched England even if they'd crashed out at the pool stages. I don't mind if people look down at me as some sort of bandwagon jumper, I'm just enjoying the tournament. That article was hilarious though, it takes pretty much the entire length of it to finally get to his point.
  9. Star Wars Episode IX (December 20th 2019)

    Fair enough. I still sort of think a film should be able to stand on it's own merits but maybe Infinity War is the exception to that. I'm not the biggest Marvel fan so didn't really see what all the fuss was about.
  10. Star Wars Episode IX (December 20th 2019)

    I thought Last Jedi was excellent, especially on second viewing. I think people had expectations what they wanted to happen so when it didn't happen, uproar. I enjoyed it 100 times more than Infinity War which I thought was as forgettable as most of the Marvel films. Two hours of pretty much exclusively battle set piece after battle setpiece, with little in between. Back to TLJ... Snoke getting no backstory. Nor did Palpatine? Rey being a nobody. Great, way better than some convoluted, shoehorned in nonsense trying to fit her in. Makes me like her even more. Luke... I can understand the annoyance, but Rian Johnson wasn't exactly left with much to work with after the storyline Abrams left him with. The time for Lando was in Force Awakens? Uh no, just as it wasn't in A New Hope. Now would be a good time to bring him back, especially after Carrie Fisher's tragic passing. Obi Wan, Yoda, Darth Vader, Made Windu, Padme, Qui-Gon, people are killed off all the time in Star Wars.
  11. General Switch Discussion

    Mine's fine. No cracks or warping or anything.
  12. Nintendo Annual General Meeting Q&A

    I'm not really sure what needs clearing up to be honest. If it's to vocalise the fact that people need to start paying soon, then sure, but details wise, we know the price and what it offers. online play, cloud saves and legacy content. The only detail we're missing is the other 10 NES we're getting, in addition to the first 10 they announced.
  13. As others have said it's literally your own adventure, make it as you wish, that's the beauty of the game One suggestion I do have though would be to not rush unlocking all the towers, take it one region at a time. Tower > explore fully > move on, repeat. That way there's always the mystery of what the rest of the world looks like and you don't experience the whole map in one sitting. But then again that's just personal preference so feel free to completely go against that!
  14. Detroit: Become Human

    Yeah Markus's storyline was an absolute bore, but I loved the Connor and Kara stories. I did everything the "right" way to get them to be mates at the end with a mid-credits scene but I can absolutely see your point @Aneres11 that you would think going after deviants would ingratiate yourself towards Hank. The thing is Hank is supposed to be a good guy, or at least become a good guy and more pro-android as the game goes on. So first you save his life, then you let two in-love androids go.
