Re: Tetris 99

8th seems to be my best so far.

Re: Is the Wii U still worth getting in 2019?

If you're not going to get a Switch anytime soon (There are rumors of a new model coming this year which could be a mini handheld only model at a cheaper price) then you can get many of the games that were ported to Switch for much less. There still the odd exclusives like Xenoblade Chronicles X (Wh...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

So what did everyone think of the Nintendo direct last night? Wasn't much for me but it was great to see so many games going out for the switch this year, Zelda links awakening looked amazing and I will be picking that up. I was disappointed that they didnt show off Bayonetta 3 which must mean its ...

For the final Star in Mario 64 (The Second Slide one) and for what the heck the key was for in Diddy Kong Racing.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

But again, depends on what they can salvage. I'm sure at least the story will be used unless it was based around a gameplay mechanic or a story element really wasnt working.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Its a good sign at least that Nintendo want to do Prime 4 right to do this but a shame we're probably going to look towards a 2021 release date or possibly longer.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

They'd get more excitement for their service if they had Super Mario Kart with online multiplayer that's for sure.

Pity the multiplayer is friends only but I'm sure online Battle Mode will be popular among retro gamers.
