Nintendo Switch - Fortnite DOES what Nintendont. Apparently you can just plug a headset into the switch for Fortnite and don't need a stupid phone app

Fucking hell, Ikaruga is NAILS. Makes Celeste look like a Lego game.


#6365

Ikaruga in being hard shocker


#6366

Tempted to buy this again - even though I have the Gamecube sitting in a box in the spare room and I don’t think I ever got past level four - because it’s sooo good.

In related hard gaming news, the stats tell me it took a bit less than six hours and a bit more than 2000 deaths to get past the Golden Ridge B-Side in Celeste. It’s probably time to give up and get stuck into the Dark Souls remaster…

On the other hand, on one screen I finally managed to pull off the dash-jump and dash again in mid-air combo, so I’ll probably break the world record next time…

Crikey, bailed on Celeste after I beat it so cannot imagine how much skill that takes. Even more baffled you got to Level 4 on Ikaruga. I put on infinite continues and still took about 50+ deaths to beat it. Look at this total wizard.

By level 3 my eyes are literally bleeding. Being honest, I love the first 2 levels so much, I can see myself happily playing them and trying to get better scores for ages to come, so £15 seems fair to me. It also feels great playing it in vertical mode.

Treasure made Sin & Punishment 2 on Wii, which is one of my very favourite games ever. Tried that?

Some games that the yoot like have been leaked - Fortnite and Paladins. Don’t really like shooters but get the urge to play one once in a while, so having a couple of free to play ones doesn’t sound like a bad


#6370

I played Paladins for a bit on PC. it’s the most shameless Overwatch clone imaginable.


#6371

LET THE SHOVELWARE BEGIN!!!

(Out next week)


#6372

Absolutely love that they appear to have been unable to get such a simple game to run on 60 fps


#6373

:joy: is it just one button for the throttle


#6374

the state of that


#6375

That was incredible. How he’s still keeping the chain going is mind-blowing.

Never had a Wii so not heard of that one but it sounds cool. Quite different in style but similar in substance, I really liked the Cave one Deathsmiles on the 360.

And thanks for the flattery but I think it’s more pigheadedness than skill on my part. Especially when you then watch a video of some guy clearing the same level in five minutes flat.


#6376

this is fun


#6377

was the demo of this any good? think it’s probably not for me, especially at full price, but you never know


#6378

I only got a chance to play a couple of games, but I thought it was good fun. will probably wait for it to come down in price too


#6379

Shovelware been about fora ages noob


#6380

I really enjoyed it. Couldn’t play the Simple rules mode on the demo, which I think I’ll ultimately prefer, but the mode with all the power shots, combos and slow mo was really good. Played like a fighting game at time, having to gain ground, counter and get direct hits in.

Within an hour of playing it I found it fluid and varied, having some almighty rallies. Did find that some people had gotten INSANELY good, INSANELY fast however, with some opponents not losing a point to me.

Only deal breakers for me are, A) the price. Wouldn’t pay £50 in the eshop for it. But sure when it’s £38 on Smyth’s I’ll get in. But a bigger issue, B), is online. Lag was horrid and made it unplayable. Once I realised you can see your opponents internet connection though before accepting a game, I merely only took on people with 5 green bars.


#6381

:smiley:

I know this of course, just couldn’t resit sharing such a shite trailer.


#6382

Not sure who is doing their marketing now but it’s so good to see them not being shit anymore.


#6383

I’m absolutely loving Disgaea 5. It’s fully mental, obviously, but also excellent.

Well worth the £30 or so you can find it for, if that style of game is your thing. Good thing there’s a demo, though - can imagine plenty of folk bouncing right off it.
