  1. General Retro Discussion

    The 8Bitdo controller was also delayed.
  2. Regular copy just dropped through the letter box. Enjoy your vinyl (?) for those who got the CE.
  3. General Switch Discussion

    Because every tweet has to be a meme, for some reason. It's supposed to line up with the images, I guess.
  4. I was going to point out they are bringing it to more than 1 console, plus online but just realised they announced it 2 years ago.
  5. He meant for him. Good grief.
  6. Your 2020 Gaming Diary

    Hah. That's perfectly fine.
  7. Picked up my Golden Deer Maddening Mode playthrough, apparently right before the Battle of the Eagle and Lion mock battle. I felt like the battle was on par with hard mode which was also difficult due to the other units being so much stronger. The Pegasus Knights that start nearby your position are really strong and can kill you in one round. I had to let Raphael and Hilda go down because I don't think I could have done it without losing a unit (it's a mock battle battle so you don't lose them anyway). Tried the Tales of the Red Canyon paralogue because I wanted the gem even though I was under levelled and ended up getting a game over. I was really close to beating it but my units were just too worn down. The auxiliary battles are really easy so it's a bit jarring playing a story mission and the difficulty is higher for them.

    They're about all 3 (the 2D games in particular anyway, but not necessarily all at the same time. The classic Sonic game stages are designed so you have 3 layers, the higher one which is more difficult to navigate but gives more rewards, the middle one gives a balance and a lower one that's a bit easier and less rewards. The special stage entrances are hidden usually so there's some exploration to do there. Once you learn the level layouts and enemy placements then you can go for speed (tip: press down once you gain speed). Just being about speed is a bit of a misconception, probably because of the way the games were marketed originally. Sonic 1 isn't really all that fast. Sonic CD isn't fast and focuses more about exploring. it sounds like the game style just isn't for you more then anything else.
  9. Phantasy Star Online 2

    Well switching regions was a breeze. All installed. You don’t get locked to a ship do you? Seems strange you do that before creating your character.
  10. I didn’t mind weapons breaking in BoTW, but tools breaking here is really annoying. I just started buying replacements rather than crafting them.
  11. Thanks, ordered it and it arrived today. I'll give it a try in a couple of days.
  12. Shantae and the Seven Sirens

    *flips table* noooo! Ah well, plenty of other games to play until then.
  13. Your 2020 Gaming Diary

    Think they spawn around Gleeba, but can't remember for certain or if they are only accessible in the post game.
  14. Phantasy Star Online 2

    Preload should be up @S.C.G I can't really check at the moment.
  15. Getting into Competitive Pokémon

    They are also giving out different Pokémon via Mystery Gift. Currently you can get HA Mr Mime and a Like all set.
  16. What Have You Bought?

    Inadvertently bought a bunch of Pokemon related stuff recently. Dropped in price so I picked it up, wanted it since it was released but not willing to pay full price. Not entirely sure what's so "limited" about it though. 3-in-1 "collector's edition" of the Pokemon Adventures manga (it's good - check it out). Again it was cheap so picked it up. Watched it yesterday and I enjoyed it. Think you need to be a Pokemon fan to get the most out of it as the story is pretty standard. Pokemon Unqio t-shirts.
  17. Phantasy Star Online 2

    Window 10 version comes out on the 27th (in the US).
  18. Your 2020 Gaming Diary

    You can create new party members but they'll be level 1.
  19. Your 2020 Gaming Diary

    The game is more about each individual town's vignette rather than the overall story arc, it's pretty similar to DQVII if you've played that. The main story backs a back seat most of the game from what I remember.
  20. Did some digging and apparently you can play your uploads in the background. https://support.google.com/youtubemusic/answer/9716522 Guess I got caught up in people's knee jerk reactions who didn't actually know this. Still, I'll wait until I can transfer my library until making any further judgement. Although I was eyeing up getting a Sony NW-A55L https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07X3XD1BW/ MP3 player which seems quite nice.
  21. It worked for me, just caught one!
  22. Tetris 99 -- Available Today

    Yeah, the relaxing nature of Animal Crossing doesn't really mix well with the stress of Tetris 99.
  23. I've only seen 1 and it decided it would rather fade out of existence than get caught.
  24. General Retro Discussion

    8Bitdo Corefx mini wireless controller is up on Amazon. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B0872RB7K9
