  5. My Nintendo ( Club Nintendo Successor )

    I always check the Japanese Nintendo site for the stuff they add to their Club Nintendo and just general merchandise they make, because they always seem to make really cool or interesting things. Recently they added a bunch of stuff I figured some of you might like to see (these are from the merch side of the store rather then club Nitnendo but I figured they're just nice to see:

  8. General Switch Discussion

    The Switch version of Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed has a release date now (for the US at least, but I assume the UK is the same): October 19th. Digital version cost $19.99 and can be preordered from this Thursday on the eshop. The psychical costs $29.99 and has an alternative glow in the dark front cover. Edit - It was added to the eshop today for pre-order and is £17.99

  10. Same here, I placed 2nd once and I have no idea how I did it lol. Other the that I generally place in the top 50 as well. On the one hand I am enjoying this, just as you said it's been a nice surprise. On the other hand, i have no idea how to improve and get better
  11. General Retro Discussion

    I think some of you might like this, someone has made a website and a magazine that covers old video game magazines that a lot of us grew up reading: https://www.forgottenworlds.net/ one of the most recent articles is about Ngamer, which was the follow up to N64 magazine with an interview with the editor at the time. It's quite interesting hearing about being in games journalist during the height of the Wii and DS and also making a magazine as the internet side of game coverage becomes more established: https://www.forgottenworlds.net/ngamer-magazine
  12. TMNT: Shredder's Revenge (Switch, PS4, Xbox, PC)

    Hey that was fun, it seems we ended with a glitch with Karai. I kept trying to revive her but it wasn't working. GG though
  13. TMNT: Shredder's Revenge (Switch, PS4, Xbox, PC)

    I’ll try and be on at that time
  14. General TV Thread

    Trailer for the new series of Frasier
  15. I’m Very happy about this, this game was awesome
  16. Yeah I can't make my mind up if they will say a single thing about the Switch 2. It stands to reason that they wouldn't want to effect sales of the Switch 1 this holiday season by announcing its follow up, but at the same time there's a chance we'll see something, like a small teaser of some kind at the very end of the Direct, but nothing major. I don't know what to expect from the Direct itself regarding Switch 1 games, outside of the obvious stuff. Such as I think they'll probably show more of Mario RPG since that is out soon. More details on the Princess Peach game that they revealed last time, as well as the Luigi's mansion 2 port. I think LM2 will have a date attached to it. The final set of tracks and characters released for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's DLC/Booster Course Pass Ghostbusters: Spirits unleashed is due out on switch this year but we don't have a date for it yet, I assume this Direct will have announce the date along with some footage. Maybe those Wind Waker/Twlight Princess HD ports we kept hearing about get revealed. And Star Fox Zero port with normal controls with Star Fox Guard included. Some new games added to NSO
  17. TMNT: Shredder's Revenge (Switch, PS4, Xbox, PC)

    Totally agree, it's much easier to know who to go for when its just a few players, but yeah, you also can't beat the sheer chaos of a full team. This was from a game I was in just before I joined you guys for example: I was worried you didn't get the reward for beating the boss (that red gem), so I'm glad it still counted. I ran to save you just as Shredder died and said "Noooo" out loud when I couldn't make it in time lol ^A random snapshot I took of the three of us.
  18. TMNT: Shredder's Revenge (Switch, PS4, Xbox, PC)

    Hey @Glen-i and @BowserBasher I just saw the invite and can join if you guys if you are still in a game Edit - That was fun, GG guys
  19. My Nintendo ( Club Nintendo Successor )

    For all these years, I had no idea that Platinum points expire. I also never payed too much attention to the psychical rewards you could get and just used my points on avatars, but since my points were about to disappear, I had a look at the store and ordered a bunch of random stuff. Finally, Wario masking tape lol:
  20. General Switch Discussion

  22. TMNT: Shredder's Revenge (Switch, PS4, Xbox, PC)

    I'll try and join if I can. I've played the new mode for an hour or so already and its a lot of fun. I didn't think I would enjoy a survival mode this much but it seems to be a decent challenge and I keep wanting to go back for one more go. My only issue is it's quite difficult on some of the later Dimensions, which isn't a huge issue if you are online with a group of people, but on my own I have found them close to impossible. Because of this, I worry a little how this mode will be in a few months time when it will be harder to find a team of random people to play it with when you can only play it by yourself. That said, I've not fully leveled up so maybe it'll be a lot easier once I had. I've also had Survival mode crash round 4 times already while playing online, which was an issue this game originally had back when it came out a year ago before they fixed it. Hopefully that'll get sorted out soon. Aside from that, the two new character's are great, I've mostly used Usagi who he might be my favorite character out of the whole roster already.
