  1. Finished the game this morning. Hero mode is more difficult (kinda obvious), I often had to leave the dungeon to heal up. The Chamber stuff sucks, really boring and they sorta force you to play it. Should have been entirely optional. Overall I think it's a fantastic remake, but at the same time doesn't really add anything, other than some QoL, or replace the original which still holds up.
  2. They're adding Fire Emblem characters to Dragon Quest!
  3. I was worried there were only 19 hearts in this game, but I found the last heart container. Phew.
  4. Apple Arcade

    Isn't it because of the fee Apple charges to list apps?

    Oh, look. Google just announced their version. https://www.androidpolice.com/2019/09/23/google-play-pass-pricing-release-date/

    Nice, that was fast. Where'd you order from, Play-Asia? My case arrived today. Makes me want to get one for the other Mini consoles/ Don't think there was any as nice as this though.
  7. Nintendo Switch Online: SNES

    Just beat Super Ghouls 'n' Ghosts, with the best ending, although the question mark makes it feel like it's not. Props to anyone to beat it without saves states/rewind, not sure how you were meant to know the requirement to get the Goddess Bracelet, unless it was in the manual? Although a lot of deaths were caused by the rather siff physics I found. I thought it was pretty good, it wrecked stuff and destroyed projectiles.
  8. Well there's the official case: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nintendo-Switch-Carrying-Screen-Protector/dp/B07V5JKSQ1 Hori does a shell that only covers the back: https://www.amazon.co.uk/DuraFlexi-Protor-Clear-Nintendo-Switch/dp/B07W3QM1YR/ I always have back luck with screen protectors so I don't think I'll bother.
  9. Ahaha, I'm not doing that again. I don't like it that much to be honest. I'm sure @Serebii will be picking it up though.
  10. Tetris 99 -- Available Today

    The Kirby theme is great, really cute.
  11. If it's anything like the mushroom one, it won't give out much light. Still looks cool though. My copy's not arriving today, not sure if I should just get it digital since it runs better or just wait. Looks like it's going to either be Saturday or Monday now, and Saturday isn't looking too likely.
  12. Yellow reminds me of the old Gameboy colours. Kinda fitting since it releases the same day as Link's Awakening. Almost as if they planned that.
  13. Apple Arcade

    For mobile, I kind of think this model kinda works. I see mobile gaming as more throwaway/time killers though. I wish Android had something similar, but it probably wouldn't be as good.
  14. My Nintendo Store order has dispatched yet. Only noticed late last night they couldn't charge my order due to it have old payment details on it. Hope it arrives tomorrow.
  15. Are you doing New Game+ or a fresh run? I'm gonna take a break first before trying it, play Link's Awakening first.
  16. Switch Online - Twitch Prime

    Yeah, I linked them and there's a button to "Activate Twitch Prime" which ends up with the same error.
  17. Switch Online - Twitch Prime

    Yeah. I think it might be because I'm not the main Prime account since I'm using the family one.
  18. Switch Online - Twitch Prime

    This ends soon (the 24th?) so tried claiming it, but it keeps erroring out with an unhelpful error message. Anyone get this to work?
  19. I have a feeling it won't be very good, though I hope I'm wrong because the design is great.
  20. Shantae and the Seven Sirens

    Do we have a time frame when the Switch version is supposed to be released yet?
  21. Tetris 99 -- Available Today

    Shame they seem to be avoiding giving out gold coins these day, that was a much better prize.

    Popful mail looks like a Ys game... "Developed by Falcom" Ah, that's why. I only had Batman and Sonic from that list. I wasn't a big fan of the Batman game back in the days though, I think I found it too hard.
  23. Nintendo Switch Online: SNES

    As great as Super Metroid is, it does have some finiky controls sometimes.
  24. General Switch Discussion

    I liked everything but the battle system in Ni No kuni. Try the Dragon Quest XI demo and see if you like that, it's a bit more of an old school JRPG?
