  1. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Ah, yeah, that really sucked, it was a really good match. I couldn't do anything even after getting hit by the explosion until it was too late. Makes me not want to use the air dodges but in the heat of the moment I kinda forget. I did under-estimate how big the blast radius was going to be though, I should've aimed for the ledge, didn't think my controls would still be locked after getting hit. I do seem to have The Knack™ of falling off the stage and not being able to recover though.
  2. Nintendo Switch Online: NES

    Zelda II does not deserve the title of black sheep, really good, if hard as nails, game. Mario 2 does a bit since it was a reskin of another game.
  3. What Have You Bought?

    Some recent and not-so-recent pickups. Fire Emblem Premium Arrange and 2 Fire Emblem Extra Drama CDs. Fire Emblem If (Fates) artbook and NES Encyclopedia. Dragon Quest X All-in-One package for PC and Ys Memories of Celceta. My Vita is becoming more redundant as it was mainly a Falcom machine. Dragonball Super: Broly steelbook.
  4. Wario Ware: Twisted Metroid: Zero Mission Fire Emblem (Blazing Blade) Mother 3 MegaMan Zero List might not be final.
  5. General Retro Discussion

    I've seen preowned copies of games that have just been released that week where the boxes are in terrible condition and/or the manual is missing in the past.
  6. Amazon Preorders

    I've been trying to buy less from Amazon so this just further makes me want to buy elsewhere. I don't buy games from them unless there's a good deal, they tend to ship late and have sent the wrong item in the past. They seemed to have a lot of issues getting Switch games late. I hope Amazon Japan don't also adopt this though as I use them for imports.
  7. Amazon Preorders

    Is that just for video games or does it spply to everything?
  8. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    I''ll play if I don't fall asleep before then.
  9. Happy Console Gamer also had it in his top ten Mega Drive games video he released recently. Reading the thread shows me how much of the story I either didn't pick up on or forgot.
  10. General Retro Discussion

    eBay is doing a 15% code starting the 24th if anyone is thinking of picking up some retro (or not-so retro) games: https://pages.ebay.co.uk/coupons/2019/Q1862/index.html
  11. Dragon Quest Builders 1 & 2 (Switch)

    Boxart: Digital version is available to preload and the season pass is up.
  12. General Switch Discussion

    June and July are pretty packed for me. Will be picking up Dragon Quest Builders 2, Fire Emblem and Mario Maker 2.
  13. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    A lot of people were worried new consoles would be streaming only because of the Google Stadia.
  14. Yes! That game was great, been wanting to replay it. The ending was really messed up if I remember right. Took me years to beat that game as well when I was younger, a really good Zelda clone.
  15. Selling Games - Yes or No?

    I've trimmed my collection a bit, games I've either never played or won't ever be likely to play again - there's far too many games and I don't have the time (or energy) to play them all. They're just sitting on my shelf taking up space and the thought of having to transport my game collection scares me. I'd never sell games I've enjoyed or have attachment to though. I could do with trimming my collection some more, but not sure what to do with certain games that don't have much value (Tetris on the 3DS for example). Selling on eBay is pretty stressful though. Last Window was a CING (RIP) game so probably got a low print run, also it never got released in America. The fact CING are defunct probably also pushed the price up, maybe. Surprised about Ghost Trick, but probably also had a small print run. And the terrible mobile port probably made the DS version worth more.
  16. General Retro Discussion

    That was the reason I created a Japanese PSN account. Never got round too playing it though, was hoping they would release it on PS4 but that never happened.
  17. General Retro Discussion

    Nice! Been wanting that myself as well. The main games are in English, but not the text adventure games.
  18. Looks like trainer customisation is confirmed:
  19. Languages

    Not sure if I'm missing something obvious, but where does Duolingo actually teach you the word? You start a lesson and it immediately asks you what the translation is or asks you to pick the pairs. I know you can click the word at the top sometimes and it gives you the translation, but I feel like it misses a lot of context. For example, they teach Sayonara for goodbye, but apparently you're only supposed to use it if you aren't going to see the other person for a while.
  20. Team Sonic Racing

    I got a communication error, shall I start a new lobby or are you guys done? Edit: never mind, just saw Hero's post. Yeah, the team aspect is really fun and gives you something to do when in the lead or get help from you team mates when you're behind. Wouldn't be surprised if Mario Kart 9 copied the idea. There are some other rules, like boost and vampire so maybe we can try those next time.
  21. Team Sonic Racing

    Well that game felt more difficult and I didn't change the difficulty.
  22. Team Sonic Racing

    I'm guessing the other teams are bots though. If you want me to increase the difficulty, just let me know.
  23. Team Sonic Racing

    Not sure if playing in teams pairs use with randos.
  24. Team Sonic Racing

    My FC is 5669-7479-4863, I made a room.
  25. Team Sonic Racing

    9pm is fine with me. @Hero of Time /anyone else are you around for some games?
