Sweet!

Now got this on preorder from Toys R Us. My wife managed to get one from Game, but that was after 90 minutes of webpage crashes etc. So not confident that it won't get cancelled due to selling more than their allotment.

@Haar I can hold off for a while. Ninty reckon the Switch will sell another 10 mil this financial year. So those numbers are possibly only a year away.

But damn, I loved this game when I was 12/13 20 years ago what the nostalgia buzz!

Not a cool move by the devs. As someone who can buy it on xb1, ps4 or switch it leaves me pondering what console to get it on...

Was all for the switch version, still prefer that to the other two, but might prefer not getting it until a digital sale pops up now.

Nintendo says Switch dead pixels "normal", not a defect

DakeyrasUK

1 year ago

@the_ewan the headline says nintendo says switch dead pixels normal.

Their terms and conditions say that for lcd screens as do many companies.

No one has said if you arent happy with dead pixels tough luck. Maybe nintendo want to, but they cant thanks to consumer law.

My point is this dead pixel thing is far from being shown to be more prevalent than normal in lcd products...

DakeyrasUK

@Fourfoldroot Fair enough, but i havent seen nintendo make a press release saying as such.

What is quoted is stuff in their terms and conditions.

Who goes to the effort of getting a dead pixel fix directly with the manufacturer?

Much easier (and quicker) to get a replacement/refund from the marketplace it was purchased.

On another note the only picture i have seen is one of a screen that was blatantly damaged, prob by a drop of some delivery man. And that will deffo go down as faulty equip as it was hundreds of pixels. Not 1 or 2, which i wouldnt accept either, but is the luck of the lcd draw. Which results in only a delay in getting the product desired.

This is such a non story....

Those who have dead pixels will no have problems getting a refund. What is more a story is why with every console launch do all journalists jump on any little story and report it as a condemming feature.

Nintendo havent released a console with large numbers of screens being defected and burying their heads. This "response" is not a new statement.

They have an issue with the left joycon, sure. And maybe the dock design if it really does scratch screens.

But seeing the bbc say thousands of people have defected screens.... where does that figure come from? Mister (not nintendo) fanboy saying they have on the internet?

If their was a clear issue, fine. But I'm yet to see evidence of such despite many news outlets reporting this who all point to a single reddit thread...

Still to this day one if my proudest gaming achievements was unlocking the no radar cheat by completing the frigate (?) Level in under 2/3 minutes and completing all tasks and saving every hostage.

No one else I knew managed to do it. I was about 13 at the time.

And playing 2 vs 2 with a large piece of card dividing the screen into the two teams with no radar was one of the greatest rewards - no radar meant nothing when you knew the maps off by heart!

Nintendo confirms Switch launch lineup of games

Hang on? XC2 is coming out this year? Ok now I want this console sooner.

Zelda, xc2, mario, rime, i am setsuna are all games i would want on it for sure.

Granted 3 of those i could experience on consoles i already own, but i do want xc2 and mario day 1. So why wait fo the huge console expense? Only going to save 30 at most on an xmas deal and 30 quid is worth experiencing those other 3 games on the portable switch.

I was feeling glum following the lacklustre reveal, now feeling more excited. But damn it is expensive...

Nintendo's precarious reveal runs risk of Switching off fans

DakeyrasUK

1 year ago

My main issue isn't with lack of 3rd party games. Nintendo are the only hardware manufacturers I particularly care for the exclusives. I have Forza Horizon 3 and it is good, but I'm happier playing Project Cars and I have Uncharted 4, but it was given to me at Christmas and I am yet to start it (ok FFXV has hogged my time), and I am more interested in getting Tomb Raider completed or Witcher 2 (never played it on the 360) done due to the xb1s backward compatability (only got the xb1 at xmas also).

So I will get this console, but probably not at launch. Will wait to see what xmas deals there are for it when Mario Odyssey is released (assuming it doesn't get delayed).

But yeah, the joy con price is ridiculous and I doubt I'll be buying an extra set. Instead it will be a wishlist addition!

Tis a shame, I really wanted to play Breath of the Wild out and about. But when I have a WiiU version on order for £40, why would I pay another £280 now for that extra perk?

So definitely need a switch for mario odyssey, xenoblade chronicles 2 and all nintendo 10/10s. But yeah, they have not convinced me 3rd party support will be anything different... from the wiiu...
So my question is how well will Zelda run on the wiiu and can I therefore wait until xmas deals to get a switch with mario odyssey?

Happy christmas Eurogamers. Though i do dislike this period (not christmas, low eurogamer news days). Makes me feel stupid each of the 10 daily times i load the front page to see if any thing cool has been announced/teased/reviewed etc. Then i realise I do so normally....

Anyway, I anticipate much more ffxv play. As im due to open an xb1s on sunday i'll probably fire up some fifa for the first time in years and zoom about in some cool cars in forza horizon 3.

Enjoy your holidays we have earned them!

2. W3 Blood and Wine
3. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
4. FFXV
5. Rise of the Tomb Raider (PS4)

These are my favourite 5 of the year, but there is a hell of lot I am still to play. Dishonoured 2, Watchdogs 2, Uncharted 4 are the ones I somewhat expect to replace entries 3-5 of my top 5.

Honestly don't see any other game getting near the top 2 though.

Ellie is the lead character in The Last of Us Part 2

It is an unpopular opinion, I know. But for me the ending did show Joel to be a dick. Either that or ND decide to ignore all his character development throughout the game and return him to being the broken man he started the game as.

I played through the game shortly (3 months) after the loss of my baby boy and loved the journey of joel's recovery. But the end sort of suggested to me that he didnt ever get over his daughters death and to the hell of humanity for it. Left me feeling pretty raw...

Will give this a go for sure as the story telling of the first had me about as hooked as any game ever has!

The Wii U a failure? Far from it

DakeyrasUK

1 year ago

Lets ignore the console for a second and just consider the games it plays.

Zombiu, mario 3d land, mk8, smash bros wiiu, splatoon, bayonetta 2, lego city, xenoblade chronicles x, captain toad and super mario maker are all games that every person who is a fan of gaming a variety of genres should own and play.

All of which are (or were) exclusive to this console. Sure it doesnt have a lot the big 3rd party games. Games such as witcher 3, rise if the tomb raider, shadow of mordor, deus ex md, uncharted 4, until dawn, mgs v, broken sword, life is strange are the games (admittedly this is so far) id miss if i only had a wiiu.

So only having a ps4 would leave me missing 10 games vs a current 9 on ps4.

In short, i dont regret purchasing a wiiu by a long shot.

The number 1 game of the last few years (witcher 3) was not on wiiu so if i could only choose 1 console in hindsight of my experiences im left not knowing how i would choose at this moment in time.
