  1. 3DS and Wii U eShop purchases to end March 2023

    https://www.resetera.com/threads/wii-u-3ds-eshop-shutdown-exclusive-games-dlc-and-features-list-thread.553420/ This is a nice list of 3DS/Wii U eShop exclusives and games with DLC. I don't believe it's an exhaustive list but it's the most complete one I've found so far.
  2. 3DS and Wii U eShop purchases to end March 2023

    I'm not scrambling to buy games but I am building up a list of games to buy in the last week of it being up. Hopefully there'll be a few closing down sales, but I doubt there'll be many beyond what we usually see. I do worry we'll have a sitaution like with the PSP/PS3 stores where games start to disappear well before the closing date. Games that didn't return when it was announced they weren't closing.

    Shin'en are doing a closing down sale https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2022/03/shinen-kicks-off-everything-must-go-3ds-and-wii-u-eshop-sale-up-to-80percent-off
  4. Pokémon 25th Anniversary

    I don't know what the general feel about the TCG is here at N-Europe, but did anybody manage to get an Ultra Premium Collection? I tried so hard but missed out every time.

    Wow I actually have that Fire Emblem Fates Limited Edition, didn't even realise. I have the New Super Mario Bros. 2: Gold Edition, which I think has the DLC. Theatrhythm DLC is definitely one for me to look into. I think I have most of the Atlus games and Nintendo eShop only games. I have some of the Ace Attorneys so I'll double check on that. On the VC Front Going to hide this in spoilers as the info comes from data mining.

    I had totally missed this, so thanks. VC games will have to be added to my list. Thanks for those two recommendations, already have those. They're great. Yes Pokemon Bank is compatible with the VC releases of Yellow and Crystal. Is there any standout DLC that's about to lost to the mists of time?
  8. 3DS and Wii U eShop purchases to end March 2023

    Just writing up my list of to-purchase and now stuck trying to decide if I should risk Nintendo eventually bringing GB/GBC/GBA to NSO. I know there were rumours of GB/GBC when we got the Expansion Pass, but hmm...
  9. 3DS and Wii U eShop purchases to end March 2023

    Damn it. I have a huge backlog of things to pick up from here. Was even planning on getting a Japanese Wii U to pick up some exclusives but that's a no go now. Hopefully people start to share their final purchase lists like we all did when the Wii Shopping Channel closed down.
  10. Nintendo Direct : 09 / 02 / 22 (10pm UK time)

    Chooo choooo! I think we'll see more of Advance Wars and the Kirby game as they're the next in line. I think we might get a Kirby Game & Watch with it being his anniversary. Maybe some Pokemon Legends Arceus DLC? Something Metroid related after how well Dread did? Or perhaps they'll do a surprise announce of another sequel for a franchise which has been away a while? Or is that too close to Advance Wars coming out.
  11. Virtual Reality

    Then I do not recommend 😂

    So I had typed up a massive post about the games I've tried on Quest 2 and what games I'm after next. Then one of my cats decided I didn't need this page open anymore so closed it. I'm not typing it out again today! To summarise: Really enjoying the Quest 2 in portable mode. The games I have that are cross buy don't offer enough differences for me to want to play them using Rift Link rather than portable. Quest 2 in Rift Link mode looks as good, if not better, than my original VIve but a little bit more closed in than the Index. I bought Lone Echo for PCVR, because it was a Rift exclusive that I've wanted for a while, but it crashes randomly every few miniutes for me. Resident Evil 2 Remake VR mod makes the poop shoot out, very recommended!

    This is why I was expecting the PSVR2 to be an extension of their now-unused portable gaming line. Could have even had it like the Quest where you could connect it up to a PS5 if you wanted to.

    I think I keep trying to kid myself by not calling it Facebook I do only have a Facebook to use this device though so what information they want to hoover up from me should be failry minimal. So the original plan was to just use it as a standalone device and use the Valve Index on the PC. I have tried it with a Rift Link and AirLink. Rift Link worked with the USB-C 2.0 cable that came with the device though it was very short, but it ONLY worked in the single USB-C 3.1 port on my PC. It doesn't make a huge amount of sense when it's a USB 2.0 cable but I couldn't get USB-C to USB-A converters to work in any of the other ports. Which is a shame because that's on the back of the machine and the included cable is only about a metre. AirLink was more trouble, even sitting right next to the WiFi access point with the PC wired into it. It just wasn't good enough at the moment but it's definitely getting there. My experience with Rift Link now has me thinking that I might use the Quest 2 for sitting experience PC VR games. Plug a single cable in and away I go. This might change when I have the spare room setup for the Index, but for now the only real difference I could feel was a slightly more goggle-like view. No worse than my HTC Vive was though. Also means I can play Rift exclusives now without ReVive. With VR being new there's always something exciting on the horizon but, like I mentioned in my original post, the wireless nature of the Quest 2 (combined with the good performance, nice controllers and acceptable visuals) felt as "Wow" as the first time I put on the HTC Vive headset back in 2016. If your worry about Facebook is the privacy aspect you can always create a new account so that it's only used on the Quest... but they still have your location data, cameras and microphones so that's never fully mitigatable. But enough that I feel more comfortable about having it in my home. If your worry is how long they support it for, that's anybody's guess. The Quest (2019), the Rift (2016), Rift S (2019) and Go (2018) have all been dropped in favour of the Quest 2. From a business point of view it makes sense because the Quest 2 is basically the combination of all those products but from a consumer point of view not so much. Thanks for the recommendation! Turns out I don't already have this on Steam, so will have to give a think about which platform I'd want to play it on.

    I bought myself a Meta Quest 2 for Christmas. I tell you I am blown away almost as much as the first time I tried VR. The lack of a tether while still having fairly nice looking games is great. For a bit of perspective here are the VR headsets that I own: HTC Vive, PSVR (Ver 1 & 2, Camera Ver 1 & 2, PS4 & PS4 Pro & PS5), Valve Index and now the Meta Quest 2. When I first got the Vive it was mind blowing but the screen door effect became more and more noticable over time. The PSVR has never impressed me, I can never get the tracking to work properly, I've tried pretty much every combination of PSVR devices and it's been in two houses now. I still can not get the tracking to be as spot on as I feel it needs to be. Visuals are nice but, again I have a Vive so my PC could push better visuals. I then bought the Index as my new pro VR headset and it is beautiful. The controllers are awesome too. But I'm still yet to install the lighthouses in my spare room so it's a faff to use. Initially I was reluctant to buy a Quest 2 because I expected the tracking to be off like the PSVR and the visuals to be more Google Cardboard than anything else. But I saw some reviews of Resident Evil 4 VR and I couldn't say brush it off anymore. Published by Oculus so it's an exclusive, made by some of the guys behind Metroid Prime. The ease of use is great, headset on and away I go playing. The tracking is impecable. Not quite lighthouse tracking but close enough that I really don't care. I'm still yet to play RE4VR but everything else I've tried is great. My only negative about the Quest 2 is that it all seems a bit RyanAir. The better headstrap is another £50. Another two hours play time is £50. Rechargable AA batteries for the controllers is another £10 say. The official Link Cable to use the Quest 2 on PC is £90 and requires a USB-C port. I don't have any of these (except the AA batteries) and I don't feel like I need them but it's worth mentioning the extras.
