Thanks - was thinking about Overcooked also.
And Snipperclips also!

My wife and I loved the demo but it seemed pretty expensive a game for what it offered. Am I wrong?


#3886

Im now sure how far the demo takes you, but i guess it is just more of that really.
I had a couple of my oldest mates over, some heady craft ales and 4 hours of Snipperclips that I would have paid easily twice the price for.
You can get a physical version now that includes the DLC for around 20 quid I think. Probably keeps trade in value pretty well too, so less of a hit than digital.


#3887

Overcooked, think it has a universal appeal in that ‘hey chaos in the kitchen, you can relate and understand the mechanics and orders I’m barking at you’ kind of way.


#3888

My son fell asleep in the car on the way to shopping, so set my phone up as a WiFi hotspot and having a couple of games of Rocket League in Morrisons carpark until he wakes up. What a time to be alive!


#3889

Got a voucher to spend at cex, their games seem very overpriced so thinking of going for a pro controller for £62 or splatoon 2 for £48. What do you reckon?


#3890

If you can be bothered you could buy the pro controller, wack it on ebay for about £55 and go on a pretty slap happy spending spree online / in the e-shop. could get a zelda physical online and rocket league on the eshop, for example


#3891

Anyone know why if I play Switch undocked in my bedroom, further away from the Wi-Fi box, the connection is fine, but if it’s docked, right next to the box, it’s a bit jumpy? Obvs i should/will just get a cable but still seems weird (I’m a novice online gamer)


#3892

Probably down to the angle of the antenna and potentially electrical interference from any other gadgets between/near the two.


#3893

Do you need a usb adapter to play with an Ethernet cable?


#3894

Something to do with aquariums


#3895

If you can get the xenoblade controller, hmget it, the dpad is better


#3896

Noted.


#3897

Lots of rumours of another proper Direct coming soon. One prominent journalist said she’d heard of many more imminent ports than were announced, plus a Reddit thread emerged pointing out that in 6 out of 8 previous instances of a Mini Direct, another followed within 3 weeks.

Couple that with literally no footage being shown of the Bayonetta duo due out next month and the leaked image today of South Park: Fractured butt whole listing, and I’m sure the rumour mill will go into overdrive again.

Time will tell.


#3898

Every direct mini has been followed by a direct. Doesn’t mean for sure it will this time, but would be unusual. Also there was nothing of that Yoshi game


#3899

It’s starting to catch on duders, can also get app for phone. You dont want to miss any hot multiplayer action would you?


#3900

£39.85 pre order offer


#3901

Well it worked. Also splatoon 2 has way more robust team making abilities than it did when we last tried this huh? We will probably be playing more splatoon 2 tomorrow if you want to join team dis! Only 4 per team so probably be best to be on discord if you want to join in but we will still post details here


#3902

I’ll be up for tomorrow.


#3903

Forgot how fun Splatoon 2 is, it’s been ages since I played it. Also seem to have become miraculously better without playing it? Maybe it’s the pro controller.

Apart from when I teamed with Jamos and his band of merry men who clearly know what they’re doing I always end up top in my team :raised_hands:

Also helps that Splatoon 2 is one of those multiplayer games where I don’t mind losing, so I find it super relaxing.
