  1. General Retro Discussion

    Digital Foundry have put up this really good mini-documentary talking about Donkey Kong Country and Killer Instinct for the snes and what went into making those games:
  2. I had very mixed feelings on the film. A lot of the things they set up in Force Awakens didn't seem to go anywhere or went in what I felt was a disappointing direction. I noticed that too
  3. The sexy brutale

    That's a shame about the load times and frame rates, hopefully they'll improve them with a patch at some point.
  4. Very happy about this, I absolutely love Street fighter 3 and Alpha 2, and pretty much like all of the others.
  5. Splatoon 2

    Yeah I think most of the games I played were Film vs Film.
  6. General Switch Discussion

    You're right, that is pretty insane and it probably does signal these games coming to Switch at some point. I'm not familiar with the Shield but unless that remote works like a Wii remote, I have to assume they have a version of Mario Galaxy running without motion controls, which is interesting to me.
  7. Mega Man 11 (2018)

    Since they already did two recent-ish Mega Man games with 8-bit graphics ( 9 and 10), I'm glad they are not going for an 8-bit look again. I would have preferred 16-bit era graphics but I like the way it looks.
  8. General Switch Discussion

    I have had to set up profiles for PSN and Xbox Live for myself and my nephews in the past year or so and most usernames I could think up where taken, so I ended up having to compromise and add numbers or extra letters to the end of them or use one of their suggested alternatives, which I find just as hard to remember as a Friend code. So I don't personally mind FC's, but ideally with the Switch, they should let us search for users via username as well as by Friend code. Similar to how you can search for a user by their profile name or their user ID on Steam. Another thing Nintendo could do is set up a hub site similar to the Mario Maker Bookmark site they made a few years ago for that game, so we can just copy and paste the URL to our Switch profile page and people can add you from there. Also some form of communication between friends would be nice too, because right now it's all a little pointless if you can't even send an invite to a friend for a game of Splatoon 2 or something through the console itself.

    He's a former WWE Wrestler although I think he's been reviewing tech for quite a while between wrestling gigs. It still messes with my head when I see that wrestlers are into video games, even though... of course they would be, but I'm mentally stuck thinking about wrestling from the late 80's early 90's. It would be like finding out Macho Man was really into Chrono Trigger or The Ultimate Warrior was a Bobble Bobble fan. All that said, It's pretty common to see wrestlers talk about their other interests and set up their own YouTube channels about them now, like Xavier Woods has a popular gaming channel on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwi2PtiKDhg

    Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap is 30% off
  12. Super Mario Galaxy

    Yeah if they ever did a HD port of this game and its sequel I guess they'd have to. They could map the spin attack to a button but I'm not sure how they could handle the pointer controls for shooting and collecting Starbits.
  13. Super Mario Galaxy

    I hope its ok to bump this topic but this amazing game is 10 years old today: Not sure where the time went, it doesn't feel like 10 years at all to me but I plan to replay this game again to celebrate it lol And I think this was one of my favourite moments in the game:
  14. Super Mario Odyssey

    I collected all 880 moons today so I am pretty much 100% complete, as its unlikely I will grind away trying to get the coins i need to buy the remaining 120 moons to max the counter to 999, unless someone finds a super easy way at some point but the reward doesn't really seem worth the effort. I thoroughly enjoyed the game from start to finish but I still prefer linear Mario games to the open world/ Mario 64 style games like Odyssey. So I have to say Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 and 3D world were better games for me. This game was so much fun though and I especially loved the post-game stuff as well. It was like completing the game the first time was only half of what the game had to offer. I loved the New Donk City festival, the extra kingdom they unlock after you beat the game, how great some of the costumes look and how much fun it is just too explore at your hearts content. A few minor things: I wish New Donk City had been a little larger. You can pretty much run from one side to the other in no time at all and I was hoping for a larger city to explore there. I also think it would have been nice if costumes had some actual gameplay perks to them. For example if Mario is wearing the snorkel costume he should get slightly more oxygen when he's swimming underwater or the Snow costume should make him slip less on ice, since those boots have studs on them. But overall, I had a lot of fun playing this game and I am actually hoping it gets some kind of DLC in the future.
