  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Received this game for xmas. Still not managed to play it due to xmas
  5. 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.
  6. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    @Animal Witcher 3 is a must apart from the combat its a much better game than Horizon imo.
  7. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Obviously looking forward to this but it will have to wait for xmas for me :(.
  8. Sega Ages (Summer M2)

    Is there much point in these Sega Ages when the Mega Drive Collection is being released?
  9. Final Fantasy XV

    The game was average at best, in fact looking back it was a disappointing take on the RPG open world genre. I wanted SE to move on straight away but obviously the cancelled DLC is disappointing to those that wanted more FFXV.
  10. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

    @Ronnie good to hear you are enjoying it. Its so much more special playing it with nostalgia glasses. Its a shame you never played the originals! I'm not very far into the game myself (just finished Mt. Moon) but every time I switch it on I remember how amazing it was seeing the battles in Pokemon Stadium and how I wished that the gameboy games looked like that...and now they do
  11. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

    So only played about 3 hours of this due to life but my thoughts: Its brilliant! Im loving it and it is so addictive. I have not been this excited to play a Pokemon game for years. I know it has nothing on BOTW or XC2 but the game looks great! It is clean, crisp and HD! Its decent to look at for Pokemon standards anyway. I love the Pokemon Stadium like battles. Really enjoying the tunes too! I think it is great that the Pokemon appear on screen rather than random battles. I am enjoying the Go catching mechanics. There is a surprisingly level of depth with this game. I have been playing Pokemon games since Red/Blue and its a shame to see the Pokemon community being so negative towards these games. I am finding them so much fun. I have never been into IV or natures etc. Maybe this is the game to get my head round them. I'm so glad I decided to pick this up. I was not going to due to all the negativity. Good job I decided to ignore.
  12. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    I really enjoyed the Direct. I'm having the game for xmas. First time i've been excited for Smash since Melee. I had the Wii U version and didn't play it very much. I found that the single player stuff was dull to be honest. This looks much better! Piranaha Plant made me laugh. It actually looks to be not a bad character. I'm happy that Walluigi didn't get announced - such a pointless character, who doesn't add anything. Excited to get the game! So much content. I have no idea how I will pick my main, there is so many characters to choose from.
  13. General Switch Discussion

    For me it is a lack of time. My daily routine involves waking up at 5:30, gym then work. I am a lawyer so it is pretty long hours and I often work in the evening. For example I had a trial to prepare for last Friday and literally spent the evenings beforehand preparing. I am also currently studying a masters via distance learning. Being married also takes up a lot of time and together with spending time with friends and also networking for work. It all results in less time for hobbies. I have not fell out of love for gaming at all. I dedicate the majority of my free time to it. Disappointingly, I no longer have a lot of that free time. I prioritise the little free time I do have to gaming. 5 years ago - I was single and barely started my career. I had a lot more free time which meant gaming every single day. The lack of free time means that I am behind on current gaming. I am playing Horizon at the minute together with some Cities: Skylines. I could post in the Horizon thread but whats the point? People have moved on. I think that is partly the problem. If I am not playing a game on release then obviously I can't talk about it as im not playing it. When I do eventually play it the discussion had finished months ago. The issue is that we are all older and i'd say there is a large portion of the forum's user base just do not have the time to play the todays games upon release. I honestly do not think that it is people not making time or moving on from gaming rather its that people (or more specifically, I) no longer have the time I did before to game.
  14. Looking back at Pokémon spinoffs

    I really enjoyed both Pokemon Snap and Pokemon TCG. Particularly with TCG, as at my school I didn't know anyone who played it with the actual cards. Instead kids just collected them. As a result, I had no idea how to play. The gameboy game taught me how and gave me the experience to play which was great. I wish for an updated game.
  15. Gamecube

    Gamecube by far is my favourite console. I have so many good memories playing it when entering my teens. Playing SA2: Battle, Monkey Ball, Star Wars, Sunshine, Wind Waker, FZero GX, Prime and Eternal Darkness were all just amazing at the time. The quality was great and it was all the better that I had the time to play them all too.
