  1. General Switch Discussion

    This worked! Funnily enough I actually started getting drifting joycon drift the day before you posted this. What a coincidence.
  2. General Gaming Sales/Charts Discussion

    That really is extraordinary. Will another game ever achieve that? No wonder we didn't get a new GTA game this generation. I'd still love to see that game on Switch.
  3. GT7 would be a fantastic launch game, especially as the series has such global appeal.
  4. Started doing some regular exercise in the garden during lock down which has done wonders for my mental health. I don't think I've lost any weight but 3-4 sessions a week has definitely gone some way to countering all the weight I likely put on drinking 2-3 beers every day when lock down started. We don't have any weights here so generally speaking it's just been body exercises and HIIT work outs whilst listening to music.
  5. General Switch Discussion

    This is quite timely as I've noticed my joycon drifting UP during Animal Crossing. Thanks for sharing.
  6. Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition (29th May)

    Just pre-ordered. Can't wait, especially after listening to the soundtrack. I never played the Wii version, but I did try the 3DS port but struggled due to the low resolution screen. Hoping that the combat matches XC2.
  7. Your 2020 Gaming Diary

    Your feelings on AC: Origins pretty much sum up why I'm not touching the franchise anymore. I get that some people want really long games but they seemed to have become slowly paced adventure/RPG's and that's not why I play Assassin's Creed at all. Apparently the next game is going to be significantly more streamlined and shorter so I might try it out on PS5. For now, I'm happy to just jump back into Assassin's Creed 2 again and again.
  8. Paper Mario: The Origami King

    3DW was critically acclaimed. I don't recall a single review or in-depth critique where comparison's to Galaxy were used to criticise it. It was never meant to be a big, epic single player game and instead was tailored to Nintendo's family audience. It's a brilliant game and perfect for newcomers. Very few people I know who played Colour Splash actually enjoyed it. From memory, the combat system, extremely easy difficulty and the generic characters were the main problems. You make it sound like the only complaint ever aimed at CS was that it wasn't TTYD and that's why critics and fans didn't like it as much? Don't get me wrong, I'd love a proper Mario RPG, but this game doesn't have to be a sequel to TTYD to be a brilliant game.
  9. Pretty much. The most consoles Microsoft ever shifted was with the 360, which despite all the momentum it had over PS3 still finished last in that generation, was outsold every year in terms of WW sales and for the final years of its life needed a gimmick like Kinect to give it some additional momentum.
  10. I honestly think Microsoft are making a big mistake by making Halo a cross gen game. It should be their system seller that pushes the boundaries of the new console in a way that the older consoles couldn't do. We're getting incredible leaps in CPU and SSD speeds and yet their flagship title is also going to release on Xbox One S :/
  11. I think we've reached a point where AAA titles now taken around 3 years to make, beginning to end, at the bare minimum. That's before you take into account that Horizon 2 will be launching on new hardware. I guess the new hardware thing could go either way. It could pose additional challenges or it could actually make things easier as they aren't hindered by the consoles limitations as much. I definitely think either Spiderman or Horizon 2 will be coming in year 1, but not both. Of course, then there's also the covid situation, which will no doubt delay games to an extent.
  12. JUST GIVE ME DEMON SOULS! Or Bloodborne 2. I definitely think Sony will show off at least one game that shows off the speed of their SSD. Spiderman 2 or Horizon 2 seem likely. If I recall, the latter was originally intended to have a flying mechanic but was scrapped.
  13. Ghost of Tsushima (PS4)

    It's pretty crazy that we're getting both The Last of Us 2 and this game so soon. It's an incredibly strong end to the PS4's lifecycle. I'm tempted to jump on board as the game looks fantastic, but a part of me is tempted to wait until the PS5 comes out so it looks a bit prettier and I don't have to worry about my PS4 sounding like it's about to take off.
  14. Paper Mario: The Origami King

    I'd settle for this and a HD remaster of TTYD.
  15. Paper Mario: The Origami King

    I hope it's got more of a TTYD / PP64 feel to it. Trailer looks decent though. Atm, my only concerns are the generic looking partners (Colour Splash had this problem) and the battle system.
