  1. I'm unlikely to play the AC DLC for more than a year so I'll spend £17 instead of £22 I guess. Keen to play some Lylat Wars too. I think I read that you get to keep all the island improvements and features from the DLC even if your sub expires anyway. Just not the actual home designer island gameplay.
  2. Return of Gamesmaster

    Personally I'd rather see the return of Games World. Specifically Wednesday nights and Madam Pixel's Peep Parlour
  3. Paper Mario: The Origami King

    This was easily in the top 3 favourites games I played last year, I had a brilliant time with it. Hope you enjoy it too. It's also probably a good thing you don't have much experience with the series, you can enjoy this one on its own merits rather than compare it to the Gamecube instalment like everyone seems to.
  4. Metroid Dread

    Rarely do I 100% a game and immediately want to jump back in and keep playing but this has definitely done that for me. From what I’ve read online it sounds like they really stuck the ending too which is hard to do these days.
  5. The Star Wars Thread

    I dunno, seems a bit fan-servicy to me. Anakin talking to Ben I could maybe appreciate, to show how conflicted he was or something like that but I don't think it was necessary. Anakin talking to Luke just wouldn't have fit at all imo. The Yoda + Luke scene was perfect though
  6. The Star Wars Thread

    Force ghost Anakin conversing with Ahsoka?? Fans would lose their mind! It's a shame this leaked, would have been an incredible moment if it happened with no prior knowledge. I wasn't a fan of Anakin in the prequels at all but a big chunk of that was down to the terrible script. Glad he gets to come back and right a few wrongs.
  7. Darkest Dungeon II

    There's one new class for Early Access with more on the way apparently. It's a totally different gameplay loop outside of battles. They said they didn't want to just make DD but better, they wanted to make a brand new game.
  8. Darkest Dungeon II

    Time to get the hype wagon rolling on this one, literally because it's seemingly Oregon Trail meets Slay the Spire. Reveal trailer from 2019: Teaser trailer from 2020: Exclusive article in PC Gamer a week and a bit ago with the first gameplay info Summary: - New structure! Roguelite road trip with progression between runs (DD1 had you making lots of runs to the same 4/5 areas, but it was one linear campaign) - 2.5D visuals during combat, 3D visuals for overworld exploration in your wagon - 5 areas. Successful run would take 5 hours - "Every region is divided into branching paths, each hode a battle or ruin to investigate or an encounter with survivors who need your help" - 9 characters at launch, 8 returning, 1 new. Skills for each have been expanded from 7 to 11. More characters on the way. - You pick 4 classes and they're with you until you win or lose. - Permadeath, character quirks and stress level are still a big part of gameplay, but now so are relationships between characters. Gameplay choices you make impact those relations. - Combat similar but more strategic and less reliant on RNG stats like accuracy (I think that's what they're getting at at least) - Lots of upgrades - DD1 made by five people. DD2 a team of 20. There's tons more in the article I'm probably forgetting. Releasing in Early Access in Q3 2021, full release about a year later. Lots of updates planned for the game, similar to DD1. Screenshots:
  9. Darkest Dungeon II

    First gameplay footage: Looks fantastic.
  10. Metroid Dread

    Just beat and 100%'d this. What a fantastic game. Absolutely brilliant, I had a great time. what.
  11. The Star Wars Thread

    Nice The High Republic poster. Really looking forward to the third novel
  12. General Switch Discussion

    Today's the 10 year anniversary of the very first Nintendo Direct! Leave it to Nintendo to change how an entire industry does things, whilst simultaneously setting fans on fire or having a company present stare thoughtfully at some fruit.
  13. Metroid Dread

    This is a real joy to play, it's just so fluid and fun to run around. The only thing is the swinging is pretty clunky, but otherwise The EMMI rooms are genuinely scary.
  14. What Have You Bought?

    14" space grey, 4TB SSD. Sufficed to say I nearly passed out at the price, and yet, I still pressed order.
  15. The Legend of Zelda's 35th Anniversary

    I didn't know I needed an OTT hype trailer for a Game & Watch in my life... till now.
  16. 100%. They've got the pacing of Directs down perfectly these days. Their last main one was excellent throughout mixing big reveals with smaller headlines throughout.
  17. Meh, it's £17 per year for N64 + Mega Drive games. I can't get too worked up about it. Yes you do need the base game.
  18. Finally we get that official DOOM crossover
  19. I'll definitely jump back in because of this update. I like how the thing they used to advertise 2.0, Brewster, ended up being the most insignificant part of it! I might come in for coffee a grand total of one time
  20. Play N64 games "at a higher resolution" ??
  21. WOW, from £18 to £35 for the NSO expansion, I was thinking maybe a tenner extra at most. Hmmm.... like @Dcubed says they better add more to it over time and give us more stuff like Tetris 99 etc. I suppose we're getting the £22 Animal Crossing DLC for 'free', for a start...
  22. Wow, that's a big update! Great stuff, the DLC looks really fun too
  23. Reminder that this starts in 5 minutes
  24. Metroid Dread

    I played Metroid on the NES 30 or so years ago, but haven't touched any of the others since, and I'm playing and loving this. It gives you a recap of the story at the beginning.
