  1. Try and give a vague indication as to the type of level it is. With screenshots if you like. Google Doc done by @Vileplume2000 showing all the levels posted here so far: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1aSHgT7Zt5npKsmLTe0oJ0V0WPLup0ZCTtOfB1kp3hio/edit#gid=0
  2. Indie Games

    Every day there seems to be a new indie game announced for the Switch so I figured this would be a good place to group some of the "smaller" titles together (though obv feel free to start standalone threads should you so choose). Thought I'd start off with this game just announced coming to Switch in Spring: TumbleSeed Looks great!
  3. Death Stranding (PS4 Kojima)

    Why did he put his own logo in the game like that? I guess I just don’t “get” the Kojima worship
  4. The art style is really nice, and the scenery looks lovely. It's just a little weird how NPCs are always so static. No one is walking around! I assume it's a technical challenge for them?
  5. Indie World Presentation on 19/08/19

    I played Ori for the first time a few months ago and fell in love. It might be more linear and straightforward a Metroidvania compared to something like Hollow Knight, but it's still a beautiful game. What a shame that moron on twitter felt the need to spoil to surprise for everyone. Hope those few extra follows were worth it. Great showing for me personally, The Touryst from Shin'en looks amazing. Very interested in Earth Night, Roki and Eastward and possible Youropa + a few more on that sizzle reel. That's what I love about these Showcases, showing us brand new indie games the majority of people will have never seen before. I guess Silksong and King of Cards belong more in a proper Direct so in hindsight were unlikely to show up here.
  6. Indie World Presentation on 19/08/19

    Silksong is my most anticipated game too, if we get a release date today that said, let them take all the time they need, a month a year, two, whatever. Otherwise, I'd like to see Spelunky (and the sequel) coming to Switch, it's about time really. Steamworld Dig 3 would be great but Quest just came out so probably a long while off. Shovel Knight King of Cards surely has to be ready by now? Also it'd be nice to see another Nintendo IP given to a big name dev.

    Another vote for spoiler tagging leaks and rumours. We did that during E3 I think
  8. Indie World Presentation on 19/08/19

    Yeah I get that, it just seems so lame to me. These are hard working devs putting their all into making a game and waiting for the right time to have their big reveal, and some well connected guy or girl on twitter just ruins it for them, all for 5 minutes of fame. It takes away from the delight gamers would have watching it live, and it takes away from the devs/publishers wanting to reveal the game on their own terms.

    I hate leaks. What’s the point?
  10. The Jimquisition Thread

    I had no idea there were controversies and pitchforks being grabbed about Borderlands 3. I guess it had been a whole 5 days since the last time gamers got up in arms about something.
  11. Indie World Presentation on 19/08/19

    I'm thinking Indie Highlights is NOE, Indie World is Japan and the Indie Showcase is NOA. It always struck me as weird that NOA and NOE had completely different broadcasts, so close together. Glad to get a unified one now.
  12. Indie World Presentation on 19/08/19

    Interesting, first time they've used the same Indie World brand as NOE. Did seem strange they called it different things and had it on at different times before now.
  13. Indie World Presentation on 19/08/19

    Cool, though I'm more looking forward to NOA's Indie showcase probably in a couple weeks.
  14. So not "Disastrous" "Unnacceptable" or "Slipping quality standards" then? Nintendo games always improve from a technical pov closer to release, glad to see that seems to be the case here too.
  15. Nintendo Switch Online: NES

    If there's the usual September Direct it could be they talk about it there. I'd be surprised if they didn't just throw SNES in with the current price, maybe N64 and over they'll introduce tiers.
  16. Nintendo Switch Online: NES

    12 months after NES seems pretty intentional.
  17. Nintendo Switch Online: NES

    Are you purposefully being obtuse, that's the third time you've misread what I wrote. We were talking about previous Nintendo consoles. Not Playstation. A typically simplistic way of looking at things, that misses the point. Releasing say, 1000 extra games a week doesn't = more money. It doesn't work like that. Maybe in the quieter Q2/Q3 of 2020, who knows what their release schedule is like after Animal Crossing. That's a possibility too, sure, but after three Virtual Consoles on their previous platforms, it's unlikely. Some might, some won't, some will buy a cheap VC game and play it for 30 hours instead of buying Astral Chain.
  18. Nintendo Switch Online: NES

    It wasn't worth considering, to you. I've already told you that other consoles didn't have the same volume of high profile releases (be it first party, third party, or indie) of the Switch, and needed titles to pad the release schedule out. The Switch isn't lacking games at the moment. Doesn't matter how short VC games are or aren't, the point is they take mindshare and marketing away from new releases. The Switch is selling insane numbers of software, truly incredible figures, there's no need to release old games when their new games are selling like crazy. Come on, take the shovelware out of the equation and the Wii suffered from huge sofware droughts. And it makes up for that with six first party releases in the second half of 2019. Unless of course little Timmy decides to buy Ocarina of Time for £10 instead of spending £50 on Fire Emblem or Astral Chain..
  19. Nintendo Switch Online: NES

    When you keep shifting the goalposts to fit your own arguments, like you always do, and like you did in your second paragraph, then dismiss any argument that doesn't line up with yours as "not worth considering" then expect a bit of push back. What does time and effort have to do with anything? My suggestion has always been about mindshare and knowing what to push to consumers, when. And by the way, that's all it's ever been, a suggestion. @markderoos asked what possible reason Nintendo could have for not giving us Virtual Console. I came up with one potential answer. I'm not saying it's right or wrong, just a potential reason. When you have multiple big games coming out every single month for their hugely popular console that's flying off shelves, why would they try and shove old games into our lap? It's just a thought, that's all. As an aside, I very clearly remember the vast majority of this board were telling Nintendo to release Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild on the same (launch) day of the Switch a few years back. "More games = better" was the reasoning. I think we can all agree now with hindsight that spacing games out was obviously the right way of doing things. Showering consumers with new and old at the same time isn't always the best way to go about things.
  20. Nintendo Switch Online: NES

    What are you on about? I'm talking about any new software on the Switch, first party, third party, indie. I never said they were against making older games available, I'm saying one reason could be that it's not a priority for them and they'd prefer to promote and push new software, especially when there's tons of it coming out. They said themselves they released the NES classic in the gap between the Wii U and the Switch and it was timed purposefully for the software drought. And don't be your usual condescending self by saying an argument "isn't worth considering", thanks.
  21. Nintendo Switch Online: NES

    You give Nintendo too much credit. There are obvious reasons why Nintendo should do lots of things yet they never do them. And you give them too little. It’s a business decision/strategy, they have their reasons, I’ve suggested one. Might be wrong but it’s something.
