Nintendo Switch requires weekly online check-in to play NES games

Daeltaja

Surely if you've been offline for >7 days and go online again, it validates your sub and you can play the NES games again? Are you sure this isn't what happens?

Dead Cells' glorious confidence trick

Daeltaja

1 month ago

Bizzare that this didn't get an Essential from EG. It's side-scrolling, roguelike perfection. Tell me one other 2D game where the combat feels this crisp and rewarding? The feedback is so on point and one its greatest achievements is that they actually managed to nail this across all of the different weapon types. I may have some favourites, but each feels useful and satisfying in its own way.

The movement... Like a knife through butter. I can jump and dodge-roll over a projectile and land exactly where I want, with pixel precision. It's flawless. I often get into "the zone" and find myself zipping around like a possessed ninja, jumping, rolling, ground smashing my way through large chunks of levels, butchering enemies before I can see them and it leaves me exhilarated.

The game structure is also a masterclass in design, I could talk about it for hours.

Dead Cells "game feel" is the new standard bearer for 2D action games. I must say the Switch is the perfect platform for it, being able to pick it up at anytime and play immediately has given me way more time with the game that I would have had otherwise.

This milestone really means nothing. How many daily active users do they have? How has they trended since launch? It's likely that the bulk of these registrations came at launch and are no longer playing. Nothing more than marketing hyperbole.

Detroit: Become Human review - clumsy yet effective robot-rights thriller

Daeltaja

Not one to get hung up on scores, but in both the written review and video commentary it's said that this is QD's best work yet, which kind of removes any credibility from Eurogamer's review policies when Heavy Rain scored a 9 and this doesn't even get a 'Recommended' (despite reading like it).

From reading into a bit more, I think it comes down to how much you are willing to embrace it's social aspects, which will seemingly make or break the experience. The game will have a much heavier reliance on immersion in the absence of more traditional game systems and I'm not convinced about the whole 'pirate legend' thing holding much interest beyond the first few weeks when everyone catches up.
