Nintendo Switch - ninty direct edition


#7024

People I trust and regard highly all say this is great, and it’s out soon:


#7025

Was getting a bit frustrated with not knowing where to go on Hollow Knight, but just done the Soul Master fight which was great so all is forgiven.


#7026

Sent my joycon in for repair today. Hope it fixed and fairly quickly.
Definitely getting Octopath next week. Okami Hd out on 8th August for £15 :blush::pray:


#7027

Sure, there’s the odd bit of grainy texture, glitchy hair or soft round the edges face, but on the whole, I’m spending these opening hours of Wolfenstein II with my jaw agape and wondering how the hell this is running on a handheld machine.


#7028

That’s a great price for that game. Tempted to double dip for that!


#7029

Well tennis is fun. I doubt I’ll use swing mode unless we’ve got people round, standard mode is where it’s at. Wife is on board with that too, we’ll get some miles out of it. Also got a mate further away who’s got it so we can play online.

One think, why isn’t standard tennis score (0, 15, 30, 40 etc} used in multiplayer, it’s first to 6? Odd decision and can’t seem to change it. Single player had it when I played.


#7030

Yeah I don’t get it either myself…

But at least the game of tennis it delivers is fantastic, oddly it’s like 50% metere management.


#7031

Well you can always turn off the meter shenanigans. We’re still getting used to the meter, went back to the tips section to study all the shot types and it started to make more sense


#7032

Oh the game is much better with the meter shenanigans, makes it feel more like a fighting game and adds several levels of strategy. It’s satisfying to get the upper hand and start bullying down the opponents meters and then blowing them out with zone shot after zone shot is super rewarding .

Boo’s spin shots and Bowser Jr’s reach are OP though, they need to fix that.


#7033

Loved smashing the TVs racket (ooh-er) to win the game :smile:


#7034

My tennis just turned up and my sister and niece are staying all weekend so but going to get near it… Aaarrggfhhh


#7035

Just played my first twenty minutes of hollow Knight. Got really deep down and then died. No idea if I was heading in the right direction. Loved it.


#7036

The game Destiny wants to be ‘Warframe’ is coming to Nintendo switch and the port is being handeled by the team that did Doom and Wolfenstein 2. Its a great game and free to play. Its a loot n shoot game for those 1who havent played ot before and has quietly been becoming one of the best free to play titles since 2013.

This is great news as i think itd be a great game to play docked whilst having something on the tele/listening to podcasts.


#7037

I’m up to a boss and they’re kicking my arse and it’s a long way back each time but this is a great game


#7038

so would you recommend? is it a fun game, or more just a technical marvel?


#7039

It’s a really fun blockbuster movie and I would recommend it if you have no other system to play it on. Otherwise it’s probably best enjoyed on a beefier machine on a large screen. The gameplay is serviceable, not as fun or fluid as Doom and pretty darn difficult in places.


#7040

The bosses are tough, but it’s really satisfying when you get them down.


#7041

Late to the party, but just got Mario Kart. Are people still playing online?


#7042

@profk, your dreams have come true


#7043

YES YES YES
