  1. Ring Fit Adventure

    I knew you'd end up picking it up afterall @Hero-of-Time.
  2. Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE (24th July)

    I still don't get the uproar about it.
  3. You can't evolve them so they are even more useless. I do think Meowth's transformation is funny though.
  4. It's not your fault, they are really badly named.

    Looks like a site about wallpaper (?) jumped the gun a and posted an article early. Handheld that plays GB/C/A and others. https://www.wallpaper.com/lifestyle/analogue-pocket-vintage-handheld-game-boy#pic_1

    I preordered mine from Blockbuster. You got a promotional VHS tape for preordering with trailers and stuff on. Still have it the tape but no way to play it.

    Today is the Dreamcast's real birthday a.ka. the European release. It was a long wait for Christmas in 1999. Will play some Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi during the weekend. Got a soldering iron so might attempt to fix the reset bug.
  8. The level growth is just based on class. Not sure how I feel being old, but does that mean I'm wise?

    CEX only gives £2 cash or £3 trade in. Probably after buying the envelope and eBay fees I'll probably only get about that anyway. I've noticed GAME's trade in checker doesn't give prices for 3DS games so it looks like they don't even expect it either. Yeah, maybe. I need to work out what I want to part with though. It's kinda hard, but feels a shame for some of them to just be sat on my shelf unplayed. I don't think I have the time or energy to play everything. Want to get rid of some One Piece DVDs I imported from America, but not sure how easy they are going to be to sell since we got the large sets and they are region 1 DVDs.

    Good point. Have your Russian cards worked before, you can't normally use cards from outside the region of the eShop?
  11. General Retro Discussion

    Yeah, I think I'm going to start getting rid of some games I either haven't played or am unlikely to play again. Problem is I'm not sure what to do with some games that don't really have much value, like Tetris on the 3DS. Donate to charity maybe?
  12. General Switch Discussion

    There's been some new rules and regulations with card payments introduced recently to prevent fraud, could be related to that.
  13. Remove Sonic Spinball and Columns and it's perfect (well, better). Only played Spinball and I hate it. I don't really like pinballs games so not played Super Mario Pinball.
  14. General Switch Discussion

    Maybe they rate limit purchases or something? Or your bank blocked it, but weird that 3 cards didn't work.
  15. General Retro Discussion

    Hoping it's the Gameboy hardware.
  16. Nintendo Switch Online: SNES

    Mine hasn't shipped yet.
  17. Your 2019 Gaming Diary

    Yeah, that's a really terrible attitude, I was going to post about it in the thread, but I bet that really damaged Alphadream releasing SuperStar and Bowser's Inside Story and people ignoring it because it was on 3DS. I was surprised to see Hey! Pikmin was released in 2017 though, felt a lot more recent than that.
  18. I think a lot of it was down to how unbalanced Rhone was and you could get wiped out without being able to do anything about it. I think they finally balanced it for the mobile version but I've not made it that far in that version.
  19. Your 2019 Gaming Diary

    Hey! Pikmin When I tried the demo, I wasn't that keen so I waited picked it up when it got a price drop. Got the sudden urge to play it and I ended actually quite enjoying it. Felt like a good Pikmin-lite without much of the RTS elements. Each stage gives you a maximum of 20 Pikmin (you get more if you lose all of them though), completing it without losing any gives you a gold statue, although there doesn't seem to be any reward for getting them (expect bragging rights). In a couple of stages you actually got some Pikmin a little later so you have to survive as Olimar alone, these were actually probably my favourites stages. The localisation is great and some of the descriptions are funny, which I'm sure many of which were posted online. The little interactions/scenes with the Pikmin where nice and at times funny as well. I'd say it's worth checking out. Now where's Pikmin 4?
  20. Only really if you have the tougher monster and less EXP Draconian Quests enabled.
  21. What exactly are you having trouble with?
  22. Ghostbusters

    It's happened to me on the 360 version a few times, mostly on the higher difficulties since the ghosts can kill in 1 hit. I wouldn't say they "never" did though. I watched the first movie again today in preparation for playing this again.
  23. Ah, yeah. That's a really obscure event flag.
  24. Sega Ages (Summer M2)

    Something about having more parallax scrolling for the backgrounds. I think there's more stuff but I don't really know. The PAL version isn't an option though.
  25. Ghostbusters

    I didn't even though they had that! My (Switch) copy arrived today, gonna play it inbetween stuff I think. It looks pretty decent upgrade judging from that video even though it's not supposed to be remastered the same was as the PS4 or Xbox One version are.
