  2. Formula 1 2020 Season

    Thing is when Lewis is in front of the race, it's race over. When Bottas is in front, Lewis is going to be pushing him all the way, like he did last weekend, pressured Bottas into a mistake, overtook him, and that was practically Bottas' chance of any revival over. Compounded by the MGU failure. I'm a Lewis fan, and I know it's boring for some, but I love that he's breaking records, and taking them away from Schumacher.

    The start of my complete playthrough of Paper Mario: The Origami King. Won't be putting these every day, but about 2-3 a week. [Lee Plays] Paper Mario: The Origami King (Part 1) Old Nintendo Gamer starts the adventure of a lifetime. Does he fold over and die, or triumphantly stick-out. Find out in Part 1.
  6. Pikmin 3 Deluxe

    I have, there's basically two versions of the motion controls. Pointer, just tries to duplicate the Wii Mote pointer, but in my eyes is a bit of a disaster, the amount of recalibration required is crazy. Every 5 seconds you're pressing the R button to recalibrate. However, and fortunately, the stick control to line up the majority of the direction, and the gyro used as a fine tuning pointer, works much better. Part 1 is us playing with the gyro as a pointer. And Part 2 we changed to the stick, and fine tuning gyro.

    I have another one for today, seeing as a demo was released in short order. Quite a lengthy demo, too. [Lee Plays] Pikmin 3 Deluxe Demo (Part 1) Old Nintendo Gamer throws the Pikmin around to see what the game offers and how the gyro controls hold up.

    [Together] NintendoLand: Metroid Blast (Part 3) Old Nintendo Gamer & Son blast through the 10 Advanced missions of Metroid Blast (missions 21-30).

    Last episode of The Messenger has rolled. Great game, with hugely frustrating sections, made worse by an imprecise double jump mechanic that often felt random. [Lee Plays] The Messenger (Part 36) Old Nintendo Gamer plays the Music Box for its last time, and watches the credits roll. It’s all over!
  10. A Japanese retailer were quoted as saying there is an additional download for the cartridge version, not fully confirmed though.

    Tried the demo of Cake Bash that popped up on the eShop, my son is quiet in this video, as he says he was really concentrating, as usual I'm blabbing away far too much. [Together] Cake Bash Demo (First Look) Old Nintendo Gamer & Son give all the modes and fun mini-games a run through in this first look at what the Cake Bash demo’s got baking in the oven.

  15. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit (16th October)

    If I had a younger son, and the space for this, this'd be a day one purchase. However, I will look admiringly at this 100 pound plastic racer.

    [Together] Super Mario Bros. 35 (Part 1) Old Nintendo Gamer & Son take a first look and play of Nintendo’s newest addition to the 2D platforming Mario family. 35 Marios, there can only be one! Who will it be?

    I got given an Indie developer code for the soon to be released Shmubedi Boo. At first glance it looks a little un-interesting, but it controls well, and gets very difficult, very quickly. Here's my first look, and over the next few days I'll have a few other videos with my son, too. 2-player is more competitive. [Lee Plays] Shmubedi Boo (First Look) Old Nintendo Gamer takes a very quick look at the upcoming eShop title Shmubedi Boo. A quirky 2D platformer that tasks you to collect many apples.

    We were initially going to concentrate on Platformers, but you can talk about any game that has featured Mario, and we'll include your thoughts.

    We are going old-school and traversing the attractions of NintendoLand, starting in Samus' Arena. This game still looks and more importantly plays amazingly. Reworked Switch Port, please. [Let’s Play: Together] NintendoLand: Metroid Blast (Part 1) Old Nintendo Gamer & Son take it to the Geemers as they blast through the first 10 missions of Metroid Blast (missions 1-10).

    It's been a while again since I last posted, and my The Messenger playthrough is up to Part 25 today, and our Borderlands co-op playthrough is up to Part 20. As for what else I've been up to, how about tackling the longest ever track in a trials game, hypnotically mesmerising. [Lee Plays] Trials Rising (Part 1) Gigatrack Old Nintendo Gamer tackles Trials Rising's longest and biggest track, and the biggest that has ever appeared in the franchise's history. Can he even make it through to the end?
