  • Hello switchers.
    Anyone fancy a fretboard mariokart bash? We could set up a room etc. for multiplayer. I've played a few friends online among a bunch of randoms but would be nice to play a bunch of knowns instead of unknowns. most evenings are good for me this week.

    Any of you guys good at Puyo Puyo?  I'm really really bad at it, but am pretty good at Tetris.  

    The thing with vs mode is, if you get a Japanese Puyo player you are going to loose because those guys are so good.  I was playing this guy last night and I was trying my best to hit him with T-spins but he built this 17 chain combo and knocked me out.

    I want puyo but it feels a bit dear at £35 when it's £25 on other consoles.

    It's amazing!  Worth the money for the online version alone.

    NBA Playgrounds is £2 extra on Switch compared to others, I know its only £2 but it irks me they would do this.

    £2 isn't so bad but a 40% mark up is a bit rich.

    So as much as I want it I won't purchase it.

    I'll add you mate. As for Puyo puyo, I will definitely get it at some point, its one of those games I will wait to be a bit cheaper though. I am actually pretty good at Puyo Puyo (at least, better than I am at tetris) because it is essentially the same game as Dr Robotnik's mean bean machine, which I played to death on the megadrive. On a similar note If they release a Dr Mario port I will be all over it. probably my favourite puzzle game from the NES days, and the wii version was very good too for online play.

    Also I was planning on checking out NBA playgrounds, hoping for an update on NBA Jam, but I read a few mediocre and one absolutely damning review (https://www.polygon.com/2017/5/14/15637954/nba-playgrounds-review), so will probably give it a miss.

    That does sound like a bad game.

    Might get a few patches though to sort it out.

  • Hi everyone, don't forget to check out the ARMS global test punch this weekend. you can download it now, it's essentially a free demo of the online multiplayer for a limited time. I'm seriously thinking about getting the game and I this will make my mind up for me.

    Also, I got snipperclips last week. It's a lot of fun! and the difficulty seems to ramp up nicely.

    I'm so gassing for a Switch right now. Needless to say, this thread really isn't helping.

    I got Street Fighter II and it's amazing!  Highly recommended.  The online mode is great also, I think I will pay the yearly fee for the online gaming service from Nintendo.

    Yeah, and it's OK, a bit fiddly for me as I have big hands and it would take some getting used to.  The best is playing it on a TV.

  • Anyone given ARMS a go this weekend? its just 1 hour slots, one in the small hours, one at 1pm and one at 7pm. I played it this evening and I was very impressed. Nice game modes, quick lobby system, surprisingly interesting gameplay. I will give it another go tomorrow but I'm pretty sold on it.

    @bingefeller download ARMS global test punch from the eshop (you can do this whenever). They turn the server on for those periods, if you try at other times it won't connect. There are quite a few more slots coming up tomorrow and next weekend i think. When it is open you do a quick tutorial, game versus the computer then you get put in a lobby and can try a few different game modes against other online opponents.

    What do you think?  Who is your favourite character?  

    I quite like Fei Long and Sagat.

    Had a quick go, plays really nice visuals are great. Normal difficulty is way too easy played through it with Ken with no continues and lots of perfects.

    I mainly play with Ken or Ryu but I am quite good with most of the characters

    Yeah I found the same, I changed it to tough for more of a challenge.  

    I didn't think much of the "classic" graphics though, especially the way in which they have a border around them.  I don't remember the classic graphics being as blocky as that.

    I downloaded Arms and didn't really like it to be honest.  I found it hard to play with the controllers detached and attached.  Splatoon 2 might be good when it comes out.  Hopefully you will be able to download a demo.

    I'm looking forward to Splatoon.

    I fancy getting Disgaea but I'm not sure I can manage another 100 hour game.

    I'm not an RPG fan because of the amount of time you have to put in to them!  100 hours is mad.

    Is Bomberman worth the £30 it's on offer at.

    It's been around/below £30 mark on eBay for a while now for the physical version which I'd prefer (easy to sell if I didn't like it!). If it was on offer for the download at a tenner it would be a no brainer, £20 I'd probably get the download but for £30 I'd want the cart.

    I didn't get it because there were lots of really bad reviews of the controls and responsiveness, might be worth it if subsequent updates have improved it
