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

    I've collected as much information as I can about DLC for the Nintendo 3DS. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ioPTxLk8uAoOF_8rFKSQzKEL0ghpzSYRzh6CjXm26Tk/edit#gid=0
  2. 3DS and Wii U eShop purchases to end March 2023

    Yeah I don't think I'm going to strike any VC off the list, even if it's on the NSO, but it will fall further down the list. Behind 3DS games and DLC. Unfortunately there is no central place for this. I did exactly what you did and went through every game, I guess I should have thought about this and took notes for people as I did so. That's a missed opportunity. Here are some scattered websites that do have some info though: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/3ds/174915-7th-dragon-iii-code-vfd/faqs/76033/dlc-quests https://bravelydefault.fandom.com/wiki/Bravely_Second:_End_Layer_downloadable_content https://etrian.fandom.com/wiki/DLC_(Etrian_Mystery_Dungeon) https://nintendoeverything.com/fantasy-lifes-origin-island-dlc-fully-detailed/ https://fireemblemwiki.org/wiki/Downloadable_content_in_Fire_Emblem_Awakening https://fireemblemwiki.org/wiki/Downloadable_content_in_Fire_Emblem_Fates https://fireemblemwiki.org/wiki/Downloadable_content_in_Fire_Emblem_Echoes:_Shadows_of_Valentia https://www.ign.com/wikis/mario-golf-world-tour/DLC_Packs https://koei.fandom.com/wiki/Hyrule_Warriors_Legends/DLC https://www.ign.com/wikis/new-super-mario-bros-2/DLC https://personacentral.com/persona-q-dlc-schedule-prices-announced-north-america/ https://personacentral.com/persona-q2-dlc/ https://www.serebii.net/dungeoninfinity/dlc.shtml (Thanks @Serebii!)

Where it's not part of the eShop?
  3. 3DS and Wii U eShop purchases to end March 2023

    It's worth remembering that if you link Nintendo Network ID to your Nintendo Account, you should still be able to add funds until 27th March. This is the only way you've been able to use a credit card for a while in the UK/EU but it should work for gift cards too. Still think it's crazy they're just happy to shut the store, I'd rather it lived in the zombie state of not being able to add funds directly like it will be after August. What are people's final buy lists looking like now? I was hoping we'd have GB/GBA announced for Switch Online by now so I could strike some of those VC games off my list.
  4. Ubisoft Delisting

    Ten years ago, I don't think anybody would have ever thought EA would be making the better choices.
  5. Ubisoft Delisting

    Yeah in Germany and Austria (so far), Studio Canal are pulling movies and shows completely from the Sony video store. It's a massive precedent so I do hope the EU pick up on this. The legalities are grey at best, but I still refuse to buy digital movies where I can't strip the DRM out and store elsewhere. Hell, I'm currently going through my PS3 and Vita catalogue dumping all the digital and physical games I have. Losing online multiplayer is understandable because that requires a connection to their servers. Though even that I wish they'd still do dedicated servers like they used to in the past, so that the community could still play without the matchmaking servers being online. It's also frustrating that this is becoming an issue purely because they used their UPlay DRM instead of the Steam DRM. Yes Steam DRM has it's own problems, but at least that's at a shop level and not a publisher level. I guess really I shouldn't be surprised at their behaviour, they've been gunning for that spot which EA held onto for so long for a while. Only problem with this way of thinking is if there's big monolithic publishers, they have even less reason to ever do anything in our favour. It's a shame really because there's definitely something broken in the executive level at Ubisoft these days. From their cookie-cutter games to their business decisions, it's all bad. Even Starlink, which I know didn't review that well, had something their other open-world games don't have. I think that game just came five years too late. I just hope people don't let them just get away with this. So many people just saying "well the game is a decade old", and? I paid for Command & Conquer almost 30 years ago and I can still play that, even if it requires a few work arounds. The DLC for these Ubisoft games is just completely gone to the best of my knowledge. I don't pirate games, so perhaps there is something in that sphere that will help me keep the DLC I've paid for. But I don't know where to begin looking. Another thing I'm seeing is discussion about it on any official channel being locked down.

    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.
  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 3DS and Wii U eShop purchases to end March 2023

    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.
  12. 3DS and Wii U eShop purchases to end March 2023

    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?
  13. 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...
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. Virtual Reality

    Then I do not recommend 😂
  17. Virtual Reality

    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!
  18. Virtual Reality

    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.
  19. Virtual Reality

    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.
  20. Virtual Reality

    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.
  21. That makes a lot of sense. I mean it's not a massive issue or anything but it does feel like a lack of polish. Like you said though, there was very tough time lines on a dev studio who's never lead on a project before. I hadn't spotted that one! Another partner Pokemon issue, that I found really amusing, involves the beach. Just before you get there you can talk to a man who says something about leaving footprints in the sand and how Pokemon love to do it too. Except when you actually arrive, your Pokemon just floats above the sand leaving no footprints. It felt like a big "d'oh!" moment. They should have at least cut that line. I've had that weird no interaction bug again a few times. I thought it was something to do with the day/night time turning over but yesterday it happened well before then.
  22. This hadn’t even occurred to me. Good call! More things I’ve noticed. They’re not terrible or anything but it seems to show a lack of polish: The message boxes seem to change between filling the entire width of the screen to only being in the centre of the screen. It’s been done on purpose but I’m not sure why. Maybe Sword & Shield did it too but I’ve only noticed it here. It’d probably have been a better idea for partner Pokémon to return to the Pokeball when on the marsh land or on those bike only paths. As it is they seem to float on the top which is weird.
  23. Played up to the third gym so far. I'm enjoying playing it so I'm glad I picked it up. What I'm not enjoying is how it's a tilebased map but the analogue stick allows for analogue movement so it feels really awkward to line up. Thankfully the DPad allows for the 'correct' movement for the map. Also don't like that at points performance takes a massive hit for seemingly no reason. I've had points where I just can't click on anything because the game is busy doing something else. It's very bizzare. I can still run around but I can't click anything. Oh and what is with that really strange depth of field effect? Where the top third and bottom third of the screen become overly blurry. It's not a nice effect at all and it's applied at random. It's so annoying I'm thinking of dumping the game and switching over to an emulator to disable it. I commend them on allowing the touchscreen for the Poketch! I just wish they'd carried it over for all the UI, but that's an annoyance with Sword & Shield too. My final thought, this is probably on me though, no Pokemon on the overworld is something I'm missing a lot more than I thought I would. I believe these games have been built from the ground up in Unity so it's a bit of a surprise that so much Sword & Shield-ness is in them. The battles, the Pokemon/Box UI, the partner Pokemon, etc all act like how they did in Sword & Shield as far as I can tell. I wonder why ILCA had to start from scratch. What's with the lack of support for Pokemon Home too? It wouldn't be too bad if it was free but Home is a paid service.

    The price for Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion is crazy. Edit: Sorry that pricing took me for surprise. All the stuff getting added in the Version 2.0 patch is awesome!
  25. Metroid Dread

    I'm onto the final boss fight now. I've enjoyed this game so much. MercurySteam have really nailed the Metroid formula.
