  1. Past hour
  2. I seemed to hit a weird bug on Day 2. I sold things at the pawn shop only my wallet never increased by the (substantial) amount the postcards I handed over were worth. I actually didn't even notice until sometime later. It felt like too much of a chore to go back to an older save to try and make up for it (I'm not even sure I have a sufficient save to do so anyway). I pressed on into Day 3 and the game crashed on me for the first time, robbing me of about 45mins of additional progress. This sort of shit can honestly sour me on a game completely. Sony's refund policy is pretty shitty isn't it?
  3. I’ve been wanting to give this another try and I have the One X version so I’m quite excited to see this update play out so well on the Series X. Though, I’d love to see a 30fps “fidelity” mode with added resolution and tessellation restored.
  4. Today
  5. Saw it a couple weeks ago. I had a different reaction, but maybe it was my first impression: It seemed cheap to me. I don't love the white plastic / colored bevel. Then again, the current ones have a black plastic bevel so probably just me. I do love how low profile it is, and if there's a 30-inch one incoming with a similar design I'm 100% in.
  6. Switch at launch, then maybe Xbox if it hits a sale or I'm really convinced it looks any better.
  7. This looks like a Beserk-esque brawler: ....and this is from some folks that really liked Streets of Rage 4 but then I’m down for more 2D style brawlers so...
  8. I really don't think I walked away happier from any other announcement this past week either, and with RGG Studio/Nagoshi heading this up I'm very confident about how it will turn out too. I'm tempted to buy it twice, to have both on the Switch and PS5. The fact there is a PS5 version definitely leaves me hoping that there will indeed be some haptics put to good use there but I've still yet to uncover any confirmation.
  9. My most anticipated title announced over the last week. These are still the best games of the series, and it's probably best to have these released with a fresh coat of paint than get what would likely be another disappointing sequel. Pleased to see it's coming to every console.
  10. I have a leftover eShop voucher to use on a game before it expires in September (the old offer to Online members to buy two game vouchers are a slightly discounted price compared to buying two games outright). Tried using it for Metroid Dread but it turns out you can't use vouchers on pre-orders that post-date when your voucher expires. Certainly seems like a very VERY Nintendo way of thinking to impose such limits on something you've already handed your money over for. So I can basically use it on any released game or game coming out before the voucher's September expiry date. I'm thinking of narrowing my choices down to one of the following four: Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword Mario Golf Super Rush Paper Mario: The Origami King Super Mario 3D Worlds I'll wait for Mario Golf reviews but if they're good that'll make a nice summer game to dip in and out of I think, and may provide more replay value than the others which I can grab physically at some point and trade in when complete.
  11. It's fun seeing a lot of demons that I'm now familiar with from Persona 5 in the Shin Megami Tensi titles. I do fear that I'm just never going to have the time for this and the Nocturne remaster though.
  12. Game looks like a Halo game, is technically competent (plenty of detail, smooth) and is as liberal with modes and mixture of both on-foot and vehicle combat as you’d hope. Anyone spooked that their new Halo wouldn’t be Halo should be reassured, and that seems to have been their bar. A large part of me admires their decision to stick with well-lit open areas that make for good clarity on targets instead of slathering it in a tonne of grey grime like every “realistic” modern shooter. And let’s face it, if you don’t like it there are plenty of other options. Yes, it would have been great to see more single player - but I wouldn’t be surprised if that isn’t seeing a lot of work that they don’t want to show right now.
  13. I think that's precisely what's stopping me from being 100% enthused about the announcement. Having re-watched the trailer a few times now it's just not clicking for me visually to the point where it's something of a turn off (the HD Phoenix Wright remasters have come close in this regard too in abandoning their magnificent original pixel art, but they still fall within tolerance and at least stayed 2D). My GBA with a copy of the first game is in a drawer under my desk here, so it's not like I desperately need this in order to replay the game anyway, but still... Metal Gear Tactics shows how good something like this could look with a 3D twist while remaining utterly faithful visually.
  14. Yeah, Nintendo makes us bend over, that's for sure. I've played so many amazing games for free-$29. But almost every Nintendo game I've ever played was $39-$59. It sucks.
  15. I wonder what it will be listed at. I’ve seen it for $30 (down from $80) lately.
  16. Looks great. One of my most anticipated games. BOTW is one of the best games ever. Slap some longer, proper, dungeons in it and it would be near perfect. They can take however long they need.
  17. Yeah, I played it all the way through with the English dub. It was very good, IMO.
  18. I’m very interested in this, and it looks good, but there is something about this being the same price as a game like BOTW2 or Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart that is going to turn me off buying this right away. Similar to something like the Links Awakening remake, or their rereleases, they should be releasing this at a lower price.
  19. Yesterday
  20. My favourite thing from the direct: ”The Nintendo Switch is now in its 5th year and many people around the world are playing games on it” So understated. I also enjoyed Koizumi’s perfect snaps (do they have him on these just for that?) and BOTW2.
  21. This looks really good. I can't wait for work to install it on my computer in about five years.
  22. https://www.nintendo.com/products/detail/game-and-watch-the-legend-of-zelda/ This features The Legend of Zelda, The Legend of Zelda II and Link's Awakening. As a bonus there are also two Zelda themed clocks, and a Zelda version of the Game and Watch Vermin game. A cute novelty, and a much better offering than last year's Mario edition (and the price is the same as $50/£45).
  23. In a world where I hadn’t played 10 amazing Metroidvania games since Super Metroid, that video would have exploded my prostate. As-is though, a simple underwear change got the job done. This game looks fantastic.
