  1. The lack of DK Jungle Beat is an absolute crime! You should be ashamed of yourselves! ASHAMED!! Still a good list overall though.
  2. Yup. I really hope this is an old demo; because it’s really jarring and offputting. It will affect how the game plays... That being said, Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2 got significant performance improvements mere months before they launched; so there is precedent for this on Switch.
  3. This game needed another year in the oven. I knew Game Freak were being stretched way too thin. Something had to give and it's a damn shame that it was Sword/Shield itself that bore the brunt of it. Hilarious to think that Pokemon Home is literally completely useless now; that was clearly never the original plan. And dynamaxing is blatantly a corner cutting exercise, since it's just the existing models being enlarged; super easy thing to add in comparison to Mega Evolution. Thanks for wasting everyone's time Let's Go!
  4. General Switch Discussion

    Kinda funny that E3 actually took away a first party title from this year’s lineup (and contained only a single new first party announcement; that probably isn’t coming out until 2021); and yet the lineup still looks packed!

    It's funny just how Dark Crystal's visuals absolutely blow away Fire Emblem Three Houses'
  6. Yooka Laylee And The Impossible Lair

    The game was just shown on Treehouse Live and it looks AWESOME!! I absolutely love the idea of having the final level open up right at the beginning; it's the one good idea from BOTW done justice! Also love the way they've nicked the Wario Land 3 thing where they have a link between the overworld and platforming levels; where things change depending on what you do outside the level! The actual platforming gameplay looks brilliant too! Very DKCR/DKCTF esc! Great showing! Really looking forward to it
  7. Coming out this year on Switch (and other platforms), it very much resembles Donkey Kong Country Returns/Tropical Freeze, but with additional top-down stages that resemble 2D Zelda! Looks really good! Colour me hyped!

    Yooka Laylee IL looks fantastic!! Great showing! Really looking forward to it!
  9. Seems like Konami remembered that they used to publish games, because they just announced a new series of classic game complications for Switch! https://www.konami.com/games/50th/ac/us/en/ The game lineup known so far... Arcade Classics Contra Collection Castlevania Collection From the website description. it looks like there might be more than one Castlevania collection coming? Going by the online chatter I’ve seen, these collections are apparently being made by Hamster; the guys responsible for the Arcade Archives series. So the emulation will probably actually be good here! eShop only. $19.99 (probably €19.99/£14.99 for us); and a lot of hopes and dreams!
  10. Konami 50th Anniversary Collection Series

    Nice!! The Contra Collection actually includes brand new 60hz versions of all of the PAL Probotector games! They all display correctly and play at the proper speed! Awesome! (You can also select the original 50hz versions, if you like worse gameplay). That’s really awesome! We finally have proper playing versions of robot arse kicking! Everybody wins! Also, screw the haters, I’m really looking forward to Contra Rogue Corps! The visuals don’t look amazing, but it looks like a proper sequel to Neo Contra and that game was awesome!

    Good thing that the Switch can run off its battery when the power is cut! Or else it would've completely ruined their demo playthrough!

    Last year had Donkey Kong Arcade and Sky Skipper being announced and released as ACA games that same day.

    I really like how Astral Chain is much more than a straightforward action game. It actually mixes in some really cool police detective gameplay; and some really cool puzzle solving! It's actually really genre bending and pretty unique! Really feels like a proper action adventure, rather than just stylish action. That's awesome! And exactly the kind of game Switch desperately needs! Can't wait! GOOD LORD THE COMBAT!!! THE BOSSES!!! EVERYTHING!! IT ALL LOOKS BONKERS AMAZING!!
  14. Nintendo at E3 2019

    I love how Astral Chain forces you to follow the law to the letter as a police officer. It's gonna be the best rubbish collecting simulator ever made!
  15. Nintendo at E3 2019

    Dunno. I think the last one was about 4-5 hours, so I'd guess that there's probably another hour or so left.
  16. Nintendo at E3 2019

    Ugh... Too many recycled games here! Come on! Show us something new!
  17. Nintendo at E3 2019

    I meant the original versions, not the DS/PS remakes (which were animated). The original versions of DQ1-5 had no animations for the sprites (and this 2D mode is meant to evoke nostalgia for that era of DQ specifically).
  18. Nintendo at E3 2019

    They weren't animated on 3DS, nor in the 2D DQ games (except DQ6). So that's not unexpected.
  19. Nintendo at E3 2019

    DQ11S is pure witchcraft! It looks like an amazing port! (and the orchestrated music is just amazing!) The new content looks very substantial too! Ahh... 2D switching isn't seamless... Looks like the game treats it as an entirely different game/save file. Interesting that 2D mode brings back random encounters!
  20. Nintendo at E3 2019

    I think that'll be post-release...
  21. Nintendo at E3 2019

    Going by past history, we should be getting something newly announced today as well... Could be tomorrow, as part of the indie block, though; but historically speaking, it's usually the second day when they show off something that wasn't in the main Direct...
  22. Nintendo at E3 2019

    Same, but they usually do this every year; so it's not new here. At least they're approaching SMM2 a different way this time around; kind of neat that they're showing off how the Invitational levels were built. Also highlights how there's an appeal in just experimenting with how SMM2 works, which is cool for newcomers
  23. Nintendo at E3 2019

    No they didn't... Dragon Quest 11 was developed by Orca, NOT Square Enix. None of the DQ games have ever been developed in-house (with the sole exception of DQ10). S-E have never managed to make a game of this kind of scale in HD (especially not an action RPG)... except for Kingdom Hearts 3 (which took them about 5-6 years to make). So it really is shocking to see it come from them! And it looks complete in a way that other S-E HD games just... aren't! I do wonder if Greezo are actually making this; considering that they made the original game when they were part of Squaresoft back in the 90s...
  24. Nintendo at E3 2019

    The Trials of Mana remake looks bloody fantastic! They've really nailed the look and feel; and the gameplay looks brilliant! Can't believe that we're getting this remake AND the original!! It's hard to believe that modern S-E is even capable of making something like this!
  25. Nintendo at E3 2019

    Bloody hell! I still can't believe that we have Seiken Densetsu 3 in English! It's just amazing!! God I hope that we see M2 go back and localise more classic titles... Would love to see the classic JPN only Fire Emblem titles finally get a proper localisation, HINT HINT M2!!!
