  1. Football Season 2019-20

    Im obviously feeling both very excited and nervous this season. Especially after seeing Liverpool smash Norwich last night... Every pundit has written us off and placed us at 20th place. You never know though, we could escape relegation. In Wilder we trust. Maguire going to Man Utd is obviously massive for him. He was brought up and his family still lives in the same village as me.
  2. Super Mario Maker 2 -- June 2019

    I've been enjoying this and its great fun playing through user created levels. The quality does seem a lot better compared to those created in the first game but that may be due to the increased numbers. The online multiplayer is just absolutely dire. Really frustrating that it the lag just makes it unplayable. I haven't got a creative bone in my body so i'm looking forward to trying out all of your levels!
  3. Football Season 2018/19

    Hi Premier League
  4. Yakuza 0 (PS4)

    Majima is such a bad ass in this game. That first scene with him is so good. I've not played the other games but I hear he is a bit of a joke character. Which is an odd and absolutely different direction as a character from this game.
  5. Final Fantasy XV

    This game was a huge disappointment for me. The story was a confusing mess and the side missions were full of pointless fetch quests. The more I think about it the more I think that I wasted so much time playing it in the first place.
  6. Yakuza 0 (PS4)

    Im enjoying reading people's opinions on this. It is probably the biggest surprise of the generation for me. I loved it. I really need to buy the others.
  7. Horizon: Zero Dawn

    I have now played through the entire game and also the DLC. I have very mixed feelings towards this game but I have come away thinking it was fantastic and actually want more. In my view, the game started off pretty strongly but became lost in the middle. I felt that the story was weak and woolly. The gameplay was very strong throughout. I also thought some of the side missions were a bit dull. I couldn't help comparing the game to Witcher 3. It uses so many of the ideas that game has. In my opinion the main story, the connection to the characters and the side missions are a lot stronger than HZD. I remember when this game was first released and a lot of people made comparisons to BOTW. I think I really benefited by playing the two games at completely different times as in my opinion they share very little and aim to achieve different things. As I said, I do think a better comparison is to W3. The fighting with the machines in this game is where it absolutely shines. I remember starting and feeling intimidated by a Watcher but then as the game went on I became more confident and skilful that I could easily take down a Thunderjaw. I loved it. The story became into its own in the final third when you find out why the world was the way it was etc. This was quality story telling. However, I feel that there was a case of too little and too late. They really could have gone to town on it but left it to the final third of the game. I was a little disappointed. Overall though it was a cracking game and these observations are just minor issues in the grand scheme of things. The DLC was quality - nice little story, great setting and fantastic new (and more difficult) machines.
  8. Metroid Prime 4 (Switch)

    Not necessarily, the Switch is not even 2 years old. I think it will definitely be released in the last few years of the Switch's life, maybe its swan song with a port released for the successor to the Switch. Wii U was not chucked in the bin until after 4 years, I imagine the Switch will have similar lifespan to PS4 and 3DS.
  9. General Switch Discussion

    To be honest, I am impressed with Nintendo's transparency on the issue with MP4. Just give me the HD Trilogy and i'll be happy. I'm not concerned about the Switch's schedule at all. There are lots being released and also we dont actually know what else that is currently unannounced being released. Personally I have a huge backlog and also not bought half the games I want to play for both Switch and PS4 due to lack of time.
  10. Nintendo Switch Online: NES

    To be honest, I don't care about NES or SNES. What I want are N64 and GameCube. I mean I wish Nintendo broaden their horizons a bit in regards to their back catalogue. It especially makes sense now we have moved to a netflix based service.
  11. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe

    I picked this up despite having it on the Wii U. I really enjoyed it on the Wii U and after SMB 3 and World it is my favourite 2D Mario game. I don't want to put the Wii U on again. Switched this on and completed Acorn Plains. I am enjoying the game all over again.
  12. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    This game is just fantastic. Reminds me when I was younger playing through Melee. Everything about it - characters, stages and the modes make it all seem fresh. I missed out on Brawl but played 4. I hated that game as I found the single player really dull with hardly any substance. Ive been playing classic, world of light, spirit board and online. Having fun with this. The comparison with Smash 4 is night and day. I'm pretty average at the game but getting better. I managed to 7.5 on classic with ganondorf - an achievement!
  13. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Received this game for xmas. Still not managed to play it due to xmas
  14. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    A week to go and I will finally have the game. Its been a little painful reading all about it on here and on twitter.
