Mario Party: The Top 100 invites you to January release date

Buenos_Estente

I always enjoyed an epic drunken Mario Party back in the day

Practically had a callous from some of the swirling the directional pad on the N64 games.

Pipping mates to stars they have been trundling towards and the emotions when in the last go someone lands on a square that totally changes everything rendering the last two hours relatively meaningless.

Can see why people hate it but me and my friends always loved a Mario Party. The newer ones where everyone had to travel together lost some of the tactical play and I'm aware I am recalling the past games through beer tinted spectacles.

Nintendo Switch's handheld mode more popular than playing on TV

Buenos_Estente

7 months ago

I am probably about 60/40 towards un-docked

Like to take it into the kitchen while knocking up dinner, slob on the sofa while the TV is occupied or while watching a bit of footy. handheld is perfect for a little bash of an indie game/sneaky game of FIFA.

When left to own devices stick it on the TV.

It is damn easy to pick up and play at any time either way I find

Rime on Nintendo eShop now costs the same as other digital versions

Buenos_Estente

1 year ago

I assume its down to appeasing physical shops that the prices have to be the same digitally. This is a fair enough workaround but a shame it has to be done at all. Not all developers will bother/be able to which means comparable switch digital prices will be higher than other formats if there is an identical physical release a fair amount of the time.

Comparing predicted Switch sales to actual Wii U sales you can see why the pulled the plug so quickly

Is a Switch on its own enough to cover the 3DS sales too? I am not so sure so I think there will be another dedicated handheld - interesting to see how they go about it - with a Switch Mini or something else unique and nintendo-y

Nintendo investigating Switch Joy-Con issues

I have started to have problems with mine - which is strange as was fine for hours before hand. It is intermittent and very frustrating when it does happen and occurred even when 1-2 meters away. Other times will work perfectly from 4 meters and with hands behind back, annoying.

Took my chance and grabbed whilst free was expecting it to be revoked sooner.. just had a look on the store and now you cant purchase the DLC/Pass even if you wanted to as license has been revoked and cant repurchase.

Watch Dogs is Ubisoft's last mature game for Wii U

Buenos_Estente

4 years ago

Its hard for Wii U customers to choose a game over other consoles if they aren't released at same time! That must hurt already marginalised sales - new gamepad features and similar performance would have been more of a temptation if released at same time.

Its Catch 22 they wont invest on getting it to same state to release at same time because it wont make as much money.

It wont make as much money as it isnt released at the same time and people have other means of playing it when they want
