Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

$40 is the slimmed down base price. That just gets you the headset and gun. $80 gets you the full set. An extra $40 for a few sheets more cardboard! :shock: That's a lot of money to throw at a kid on a disposable toy. Is it really?? Wow - I hadn't seen that. I wonder what the sales are like for Labo?

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

I like the concept, but personally I think it's way overpriced. They could be offering the cardboard at a much lower price point with a download. The target market doesn't care about cartridges, and the destructive nature of the cardboard means it can't be a long term object that holds the value th...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Google cardboard = £1 Switch equivalent = $40 :shock: In fairness, you do get games, via a game cartridge. I keep seeing people posting "its XXX for just cardboard" - which it isn't. Of course, whether its value to you personally, is another matter - especially given a target market of @10 year olds.

Re: What are you currently playing?

I flicked my Xbox360 on last night for the first time in..... ummmmm... 6 months. Decided to play Bad Company 2, my favourite game of all time. Games of 2 aside. Seems BC2 is finally dead. Quite sad really, as I had such a great time on that game. I live in hope that we will see a HD remaster at som...

Re: What are you currently playing?

BFV - I love the series - this is good, however they shouldn't have released it until it was finished.

As my mate put it, by the time its actually finished, I'll have lost interest.

Fair point.

Re: Paul Woakes tribute

As a result of the C&VG preview, I used to visit my local computer shop, The Micro Shop, and ask when it was coming out... and I mean every week. Eventually, I was offered a Saturday job there and had some amazing times during the 8 bit heyday, including bunking off school to work there. Without Pau...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Yes that's my thinking. Big cards will be cheaper by the time I need one.

Great thanks for eshop recommendations.

Looking forward to seeing what the switch can do.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

I was thinking 128gb, as costs rise quite sharply after that. I have zelda special edition. Also two pro controllers I forgot to cancel at lauch! Yes that's the games on my list, doom is interesting but I have it on the xbone... although I'll probably get it when it's on sale, just cause it's techni...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

I've bitten and ordered a switch today. I kept holding out, but the Game deal with Mario and Mario v Rabbits for £330 seemed OK. and the missus will pay some of that for Xmas.

Looking forward to get stuck in now.

Any game and memory card recommendations?

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 170

Heard back from subscriptions. An odd email claiming I'd said I'd not received the issue but it had been sent out.

There are no replacements to be had, so extending subscription by one issue.

Grateful for that but it did look like my email wasn't read.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 170

Pages 46 and 47 are completely unreadable. Grey print on black paper? I'm assuming this is a misprint.

Annoying because it's an artic game.

Can I get a new copy please?
