    This’ll be fun. Can’t see Trump admitting he lost, wonder how he’ll frame it.

    But also, my trial of the Control: Cloud Version Test for Switch streaming. Not good in my opinion, game and lag both bad.

    Finished off the ascent, yet more to do. [Lee Plays] A Short Hike (Part 3) Old Nintendo Gamer climbs to the very highest of the peaks, and finds that it only starts the journey. There’s a lot more to uncover, and stories to be told from the island’s inhabitants.

  9. N-E Café Podcast

    Our 50th Mario extravaganza is here. And before posting it, a big thanks to all who took part in making this last year, and in particular this podcast happen. The three hosts, of course, the stuff in the background that doesn't get seen still happens on a weekly basis. It's been a continuation of what we did in the past, but that doesn't detract from the fun us three have on a weekly basis sharing our stories about our passion through its ups and downs. So, thanks @Nicktendo and @nekunando, here's to the next 50. Thaks also to @S.C.G who allows us to produce the podcast in the N-Europe name, a fact that I've never taken lightly, and for his, getting more regular appearances, on the show. Always a delight to hear from his knowledgeable background. In this episode alone, we had contributions from our forum members, and I'd like to thank all for taking the time out of your busy schedules to make this podcast the nearly 4 hour behemoth that it is, @Will, @Vileplume2000, @Jonnas, and @WackerJr. Hope you like your inclusion, your segments are timeline tagged in the description, if you want to listen straight away, or skip over, Will . And the last huge thanks, goes to all who listen, give us feedback, we accept both forms as a way of growing, and we'll continue to produce the same carefully crafted content on a weekly basis from November 10th. Yes, that's right, as I said above we're taking a week's respite. A time to breathe, and let the 4 hours of the 50th sink in. Enjoy! N-E Café [050] The Forum is in Another Castle is now available at all good podcast providers. Recorded on the 25th of October, 2020.

    It was a long one, and that’s before Nick edits in all the extra chats we had with our forum members here. So, a big shout out to all the hard work that Nick puts in all year round. The 50th episode should be going up at the regular time, but as Greg said it is a long one, so long in fact it’ll do for 2 episodes. And, because of that we are going to take a week off to recuperate after a first successful and rewarding year of podcasting for N-Europe. You’ll have plenty to listen to with all our Mario reminiscences, and a fun little quiz at the end. We’ll be recording back in 2 weeks, so episode 51 will be up on the 10th of November.

    Thanks for taking the time to answer those Sam. Looking forward to recording the 50th, too. It's going to be fun, and different.

    [Together] Grood (Part 1) Old Nintendo Gamer & Son blast through a few games of GROOD to see if the smooth framerate holds up under local co-op conditions. Spoiler: it does!
  17. Tetris 99 -- Available Today

    It’s a returning theme, but the good news is if you didn’t get it before, it’s only 50 points to unlock now, instead of the usual 100.
  18. I haven’t tried co-op yet, but will try to get around to it this weekend. If I can prise him off of Borderlands and Armello that is.
  19. Yeah, I was using visual cues, and the jump bar is/doesn’t feel like it’s in the right place. For me, the jump bar looks like it’s a whole beat after when it should be, and by that time I should be swinging in mid-air. You basically have to jump over the bar and not jump when you reach it. I find that incredibly off-putting, when he attack is co-ordinated with an ever decreasing circle to time the attack, I found it odd that they didn’t provide an additional timing cue when to jump. It’s even more evident that the shadow of the jump bar is under it, and that feels like the time to jump when you reach the shadow, ie the base of it, but it’s not, I just can’t get around it, and jump a beat too late. It is cluttered, but I suppose with extra play time your eyes adjust where to look. It feels, at first anyway, like there’s too much going on, and the superfluous enemies that die to a ‘crystal shard’ x button attack, just clutter even further. Proud difficulty did in fact own me, [emoji23]
  20. For anyone who can't be bothered to download the demo.
  21. @Glen-i I'm just posting my Let's Play of the demo of KH: Melody of Memory. I loved the Theatrhythm game on the 3DS, but this feels different, in a bad way for me. The game feels slower, and the jumping mechanic doesn't feel timed, and it's difficult to know when to jump with a good accuracy. Disappointed.

    [Lee Plays] Paper Mario: The Origami King (Part 2) Old Nintendo Gamer gets in his first fight and learns the battle mechanics from Olivia.
  23. Monster Hunter Rise

    All that we know so far is 4 player hubs. The single player and multiplayer are completely separate like in the 3DS games, so your character levels up separately in each. No voice chat in game, or on the NSO app, just the messaging of set dialogue, emojis, etc. That’s all we know so far. Drop in, drop out, seemless multiplayer quest joining would be an excellent addition, keeping my fingers crossed for that.

    Drageus Games gave me an eShop code for their upcoming side scrolling shoot'em up 'GROOD'. They said share some videos of the game, so here's the first, a first look at what the early game has to offer. [Lee Plays] Grood (First Look) Old Nintendo Gamer takes a first look at what the upcoming game Grood has to offer. Heavy Metal, side-scrolling shooting action, in a retro or modern flavour.

    A streak, think that's about 4 in a row already, isn't it? Haha.
