    Looks/sounds pretty good to me. Proof in the pudding etc, but still

    Nintendo Store have charged me.

    I kind of wish this was on Switch, rather than 3DS, but ne'ermind.

    Debating picking this up as I have a long flight coming up and need a couple of handheld games to get me through it.

    But starting to think that the Vita version of Rabi Ribi might be a better pick. Already played it on PC and the cutesy-anime art-style means EG will never review it, but it's an absolutely fantastic hardcore metroidvania and I think the console versions get some extra content.

    I remembered to check my emails, and I have a dispatch note from Nintendo that was received about 1pm today. They say to expect delivery between Saturday and Monday...

    I just did a quick Google for Rabi Ribi as I love a good Metroidvania, but all the images looked like creepy hentai for weeabos. Is the whole game like that?

    @minky-kong It has the cutesy-anime style, yes. But you'll also note the PEGI-12 age-rating. It's not exactly "creepy hentai".

    It's a pity the art style closes a lot of people's minds, because it really is the best 2d metroidvania I've played for years.

    My order from The Game Collection is still awaiting stock/release. Should have stuck with Nintendo, who have already dispatched my Metroid amiibo. Oh well.

    Yep, got my LE \o/ Love that the art book is double-sided.

    Quite impressed for my first hour.

    That said, 3D at 30FPS I don't recommend. Play with it off IMO.

    Quite impressed with the fact the postman decided to blow on the door instead of knock on it and leave me a card, the sack of shit

    @Duffking Different experience from EG's reviewer? Or do you recognise the shortcomings he mentioned?

    @quadfather Generally that means they didn't even have the item in question on them.

    @Ror

    It's in the sorting office down the road. The one that's owned by a guy that opens and closes when he fancies it.

    Ah the joys of village life and country fucking bumpkins

    @quadfather Ah, well hopefully you can get it today. I don't even know where my local sorting office is, as they closed the nearest one a few years back. Ah, the joys of city life.

    Is it 60fps without 3D?

    Nope. 3D just doesn't look good at 30 to me is all.

    Having ordered the LE and both amiibo from the Nintendo UK Store I have been let down by them yet again. Had part of an order with some Smash amiibo cancelled, then an order for MM Link, then a second order for MM Link when they put them back in stock and now they've failed to get this to me for launch day. Checking the tracking information, Royal Mail apparently received it Wednesday evening and then... nothing. Wouldn't be surprised if they didn't actually give them anything to send.

    Mine was sent by RM48 tracked it seems, so if yours was sent Wednesday it should have arrived. Especially if RM received it. Sounds like it's their fault to me.

    @the_milkybar_kid

    I bought both Amiibo's but have decided I only want the squishy metroid one. Willing to part with the Samus Aran figure for what I paid for it + postage if anyone fancies it? Still in the packaging.

    @DanoFNG I was after the squishy metroid one, but thanks for considering me. Cheers mate.

    I'm literally ten minutes into this, but I feel comfortable saying it's fucking amazing.

    Played a couple of hours. Latest unlock was the spiderball. Am now busy getting lost exploring all the ceilings for sneaky secrets!

    Loving it mostly so far. Am finding the combat a little annoying at times due to all enemies doing a dash attack that you need to counter. Small gripe that imnfast adjusting too.
