  1. Nintendo Direct 04/09/2019, 11 pm

    Sakurai’s Smash Bros direct was excellent, and he comes across so humble & genuine. His comment on buying an X-Box was great and makes sense for him to be repaying the favour given by Microsoft in allowing Banjo in the game. It was also nice to hear him praising Grant Kirkhope, who has provided so many memorable video game tunes in the past. While it’ll be an enormous amount of work, I’m so glad they’ve decided to give us more DLC characters. There are still so many popular characters that could be added (plus Waluigi 😁) that this will certainly help. Finally, how good is Sakurai at using two controllers at once!?? That ‘two-player’ Sandbag demo was ridiculous!
  2. 22 weeks!? Wow! A huge thanks to @Glen-i and everyone else for all the work (& arguments!) that went into producing the whole series of articles. It was a lot of fun to be part of and to read other people’s opinions. Great stuff! 😃👍🏻
  3. Oops, thanks for the reminder! All done now!
  4. Football Season 2019-20

    Thanks @Space I’ve added myself to the growing League list. I was already planning on using the fact that I’d be a week behind as an excuse, but @Eenuh‘s performance last season has ruined that excuse already! 😂 An exciting start to the Premiership yesterday with plenty of goals, and of course plenty of VAR discussion already! The best news of course was Exeter continuing their winning streak (2 matches...) in League 2! Maybe this year will be our year!
  5. Ghostbusters

    It seems a strange choice for a remaster, but I’m not complaining. I didn’t play the originals, but from what I read it wasn’t a bad game and, like already mentioned, the story was effectively another film. They did incredibly well to get so many of the original cast involved, and I’m looking forward to seeing the finished product come October!
  6. One of my most disappointing console generations. At least we had a few good original games: New Super Mario Bros. U Pikmin 3 Super Mario 3D World The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild The Wonderful 101 Am I right in thinking that New Super Luigi U is not counted as a separate game as it’s DLC for New Super Mario Bros U?
  7. With the high volume of great games that were actually ports / remakes, this list didn’t turn out to be as tough as I was anticipating: ~ Mario Kart 7 ~ Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice ~ Super Mario 3D Land ~ The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds ~ Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward
  8. Sega Ages (Summer M2)

    I’m revisiting Alex Kidd in Miracle World for the first time in nearly 25 years. The damn music is still in my head after all this time! I like the added bonus of the few extra features they’ve added in, such as the time trial and leaderboards for certain stages, and I wish they could actually have expanded upon this to really add more longevity to the title.
  9. Despite my large catalogue of games I’ve struggled a little to identify the best ones. Many good, but in my opinion there weren’t a lot that I found truly great, especially in comparison to other consoles. Anyway, some nominations: Little King’s Story Pandora’s Tower Super Mario Galaxy 2 World of Goo Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure
  10. Wow, now that’s been pointed out, it really does seem a little too much of a coincidence and I can’t believe I missed it! Like @Sckewi pointed out, so was among those who only found the village around 2/3 of my way through the game. Regarding the weapons breaking, I thought I’d find it frustrating, but actually with enough weapons to pick up from enemies & chests I actually enjoyed this aspect.
  11. Visual novels on Switch

    Thanks for those titles mentioned so far. The Switch has a larger library of visual novels than I realised! I prefer those where there is a bit more gameplay, even it’s just in the form of puzzles, and where my decisions matter (i.e., a more involving ‘choose your own adventure’ game). I love the Phoenix Wright and Zero Escape games. I have been burned on 3DS with titles such as Time Hollow, which was just reading a story and was a real letdown. I’ll have for look into some of the titles mentioned so far in this thread.
  12. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

    Thanks BowserBasher, request sent. My code is 6312 7525 3290 for anyone interested. I've only spent a little time with it. It does seem more involving than Pokemon Go. I’m impressed with the graphics & detail, although this is having an impact on my battery life. I need to invest more time in it to really understand what the goal is and all of the little nuances.
  13. Games Done Quick

    As with every time they run it, it’s a great watch! There are some inevitability dull runs or poor commentaries, but when you find a good one it’s a real eye-opener and amazing to see players who are just so much better than me! 😃 The Mario Bros 3 All Forts race was excellent & I wanted to see whether Mitch could make up for last year when he lost the hammer suit seconds before facing Bowser!
  14. I like this category! I’ve struggled a little to whittle it down to 5 as there are so many I could easily nominate! Here goes: Phoenix Wright: Trials & Tribulations Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass The World Ends with You
  15. I love my GameCube library, although looking back over the games there are a lot of really good games, but not as many as I remember where I’d truly consider them G.O.A.T. material. For me that’s true for that whole console generation. Anyway, here we go (note: may well be edited before the deadline!): ~ Metroid Prime ~ Beyond Good & Evil ~ Pikmin 2 ~ The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess ~ Eternal Darkness
