  1. Nintendo Switch Online: SNES

    As great as Super Metroid is, it does have some finiky controls sometimes.
  2. 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?
  3. Helps if I actually look up prices first, I see it ranges from £3.99 to £10.99 a month which makes more sense. For some reason I assumed it was like £40 a year or something.
  4. How does Gamepass work, do they rotate games out? Considering there were deals to get gamepass for a £1 or something, unless that was for the Windows one only, I can't imagine them making a lot of money from it.
  5. This week's Dr. Stone chapter was really good.
  6. General Switch Discussion

    The sprites are weird scales on the overworld and towns. It actually looks like they've applied a filter on these versions which makes them look worse actually. DQII & DQIII have missing music, unless they got restored. Not sure about DQII but DQIII has missing content. DQI is probably the best version.

    I just pre-ordered the Asian version as well. Sounds like these are digital only though, but glad we are getting an official EU release. This is the first time these games have been made available in Europe on non-mobile devices.
  8. General Retro Discussion

    OK, so curiosity got the better of me and I went to dig up my Dreamcast. Couldn't find the power cable but I noticed it uses the same one as the PS4. Hooray for non-proprietary connectors! Hooked it up to the Framemeister, crossed my finders and turned it on. My Chao are still alive! Sorry for not feeding you for probably 8 years. It's hooked up using s-video so I'm not getting sound and it didn't like 60hz. I'm going to have to buy an RGB cable, aren't I? It still looks good though, I must say. The console itself hasn't yellowed much, but one my my VMUs and the Rumble pack has. The console is really noisy so it might need cleaning. Could do with a clean anyway.

    Shame my launch unit Dreamcast died. The replacement seemed to be going the same way as well sadly. CEX had one in for £45 which I was sorta tempted by, but I'd rather get a new boxed one if possible. Not sure if I would use it enough t justify though.
  10. It's a bit weird considering the game is pretty dark already. What's worse is they just half-arsed it, it wouldn't be as bad if they put a bit of effort in.
  11. I'd be surprised the PS4 version releases outside Japan.
  12. Nintendo Collectables!

    Couldn't find the non-Nintendo collectables thread, but it's kind of Nintendo-y... Cor blimey.
  13. Ring Fit Adventure

    It's showing as £59 on Shopto for me?
  14. There's an update available with a new difficulty level. You don't need to buy the DLC or anything to get it.
  15. Tetris 99 -- Available Today

    Oh, thought those were part of the DLC for some reason. Adding the themes makes it more and more like Tetris DS, which was my favourite simply because of the Nintendo themes.
  16. General Switch Discussion

    The alarms thing is weird, seems you can only set one using supported apps??? Probably for Animal Crossing to wake you up before Joan leaves on Sundays. Seems awfully specific though. But, they finally implemented a use for the home button LED!
  17. General Switch Discussion

    Not very interesting.
  18. Just seen an advert for this on TV. Nice to see Nintendo actually prompting the game unlike SE.
  19. Nintendo Switch Online: SNES

    Wow, Starfox is pretty difficult.
  20. General Retro Discussion

    Bonus points for the Road Avenger shout-out. That game was hard, even though I beat it a number of times I still sometimes couldn't finish it. I think The Simpsons might have referenced it, or might be a coincidence since that would be pretty obscure. That video taught me that the mega CD can read burned CDs, which may not have been their intention.
  21. Cheap Switch Lite with eBay code. Other colours are available.
  22. Nintendo Switch Online: SNES

    Just feels wrong not too. I kind of know them off by heart (no pun intended) at this point. I got lucky with the random ones from the digging mini-game and treasure chest game and got them really quickly. Plus I like having the full set of hearts, nice and symmetrical. I hated in BoTW where you can't get a full set of hearts and stamina
  23. Nintendo Switch Online: SNES

    Yup. I had 4 deaths though so you got me there.
  24. For sure list: Tetris 99 (Although I think it better suits being digital but it comes with a free(?) year sub which is tempting) Link's Awakening Dragon Quest XI (EN and JP) Ghostbusters Luigi's Mansion 3 Pokemon Sword I think Blazblue Cross Tag Battle version 2 is due out in November. Maybe list: Ni No Kuni Layton's Mystery Journey Two Point Hospital (do want it, but I think it's going to have be sacrificed due to the amount of stuff coming out in September) I slept on Astral Chain but might pick it up at some point. Gonna pick up a Switch Lite, the normal Switch hurts my hands so hoping this might be a bit better, plus hoping the d-pad is good for fighters. Picking the the LA Amiibo, and Chrom for definite. Maybe the Pokemon ones as well.
