Nintendo Switch - ninty direct edition

Mario Tennis is pretty good fun. Match making is currently fucked though. I keep breezing round 1 then coming up against people with 10,000 points in round 2 and getting annihilated.

Also, don’t ever accept a match with someone with a slow connection - it’s impossible to play due to the lag and they basically win by default.


#6325

Match making is random isn’t it? Obviously with the likelihood of better opponents the deeper you progress. If someone is Rosalina I’m going to get crushed.


#6326

It’s a little bit annoying that you can’t see their points/level when accepting a match. Clearly if someone’s Rosalina or one of the other hidden characters it’s better to back off, but I just got ruined by a Yoshi with about 8,000 points vs my 300.


#6327

I just play anyone. I guess I’m just a maverick!


#6328

I too am appallingly bad.

Yeah - It’s really nice. Will happily buy it on sale at some point in the future, but as you say it’s priced way above what I’d happily pay at the moment.


#6329

I think it’s going to make a brilliant alternative to DiS Mario kart.

What’s Lorne Malvo’s favourite switch game


#6331

Had a go of mario tennis. S’alright. Would deffo buy if it was £20-£25.


#6332

yeah, i’m not sure there’s 60 quids worth of game there tbh…

gonna hold off buying it for sure.


#6333

Don’t think I’ve ever paid 60quid for a game ever. Smyths are doing Mario tennis for 37 click and collect. Enjoying the trial. Would have liked a bit of the story mode too.
P. S. Chain chomp players are tories.


#6334

Cant get past the tutorial. can’t do the trick shot . what’s wrong with me!


#6335

A lot becauae a trick shot is largely automated


#6336

Ps really like Mario Tennis. Really starting to improve and having some real nailbiters. Still not made it to the semifinals. But gosh it feels good to play


#6337

I od love this intro movie doe, also yeah there is clearly pet collecting/evolving etc.

HYPE! Want so much


#6338

Went from getting properly, constantly thrashed this morning to winning a tournament! What a feeling.

Wasn’t really that interested in the buying it but think the demo’s won me over big time.

Been getting stuck into Xenoblade too (bit late to the party there). Took a really long time for it to click, but just finished Chapter 3 (I think) and now that the combat makes some sense I’m hooked. Some of the voice acting is shocking, but the music for Uraya was pretty god damn amazing huh?


#6339

All of the music in XC1&2 is pretty epic. The very best tracks from both games rank amongst my favourite ever.

Definitely hits it’s stride in Chapter 3. Enjoy!


#6340

Xenoblade is amazing. Put 175 hours into it so far. You should try Japanese voice with English subs - so much better IMHO.


#6341

Did anyone grab SF 30th Anniversary?
Plays surprisingly well with the faux d-pad (better with a fight stick though…) and the history/museum elements are the best I’ve seen in a game collection.


#6342

Saw a preview of this that said the combat is systems-heavy and hard as balls.

Yessssssss!


#6343

I struggled with the demo initially, which I’m taking as a plus point.

If the story can get anywhere near the impact of the visuals, this could be one for the ages.
