Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

The near straight ports of wii u games is a problem. That could well alienate wii u owners.

Mario Kart 8 deluxe feels like that to me, I don't feel the need to buy that, given I have the wii u version.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Tell me, why do people consider the switch and the games too expensive? Isn't the RRP of PS4 and Xbone games £60? And paying for online, PS4 and Xbone both do that? I'm just curious to know why similar prices as to the competition is perceived too much. Sure, I'd be delighted if the Switch was £200....

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Ive never picked up a console at launch. I've pre-ordered the switch, based purely on the fun I've had (am having) with the wii-U. But I'm underwhelmed. The launch games are very disappointing. Zelda looks impressive and I'm sure will be a good game. The rest? Nothing of particularly interest, sure ...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Fire Emblem Awakenings for the 3ds, £24 as part of an amazon flash sale so much for not buying any games this month, as I have enough to keep me busy with my Xmas goodies.

On the toy shelf, I spotted a new and sealed Barcode Battler for £3.

Re: Where does "Retro" end?

Retro is a personal perspective. Having said that, the 360 is nowhere near retro. If the mag started covering it, it would have no credibility. The wii isn't retro either. pages 28 and 29 of the current issue feature content that is far newer than early stuff on the 360 and PS3, I don't see any iss...

Found an elite plus manual on a book shelf in a charity shop.

Had to pick it up for a quid. Some really art work in it

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Prices seems to be really important to folk with the Switch.

I don't recall similar discussions around the PS4 and Xbone - but feel free to correct me.

It does seems like there is a perception that Nintendo should be more budget, than perhaps Sony or Microsoft.

Re: Nintendo NX Reveal Coming Tomorrow!

Skyrim on the go is perfect for me... I commute for 4 hours each day.

I wonder what impact this will have on the 3ds?

If I get as much fun out of it as the wii u, then I'll be happy.

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Paper Mario Colour Splash - a very relaxing game. Great music and graphics. I'd forgotten I'd pre-ordered this, until I got an email telling me it had been dispatched!
