    A Lumines Thread

    Funnily and sure enough, since making that post I did indeed go on to set myself a new high score, only to have the game crash and bring up the error code. Shat it. I exited back to the Switch home screen, then re-opened Lumines. While the error screen pop up was still visible, the game refreshed behind the window and went through to present my new high score, which saved thankfully. I wasn't sure if this would have happened had I not exited and re-opened the game, but it's something to bear in mind if it happens to you. There's been an update since I first made the post about getting the error code, but it still persists. Nerve-jangling. It's like you especially doubly don't wanna die in the game. Stressful as flip.

    This is Hip-Hop.

    Muggs is in a rich vein of form right now. It's pretty amazing to see a guy from his era getting back involved, and making really some impressive underground shit. Will be checking this out.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    It was probably the weakest section of the game, but the Yiga’s ninja chat was spot on. Sounds like something you’d hear sampled at the end of a Wu-Tang track! Also, in the grand scheme of things, it probably took me 15 to 20 minutes max, out of a 235 hour play through. I feel you can’t really complain about such a short slightly dodgy section when the rest of the experience was hundreds of hours of the best thing you’ve ever played.

    From what I hear, the Zenit game was mental tonight. 4-0 down from the first leg, won 4-0 at home tonight, went an away goal down in extra time, then went on to score four more goals

    Third movement in that new track is fucking gorgeous, with visuals to match in the video. Lovely stuff.

    Nintendo Switch

    But, aye. Glory days for fans of the Metroidvania. To think Nintendo themselves spent something like three generations believing that nobody could possibly ever want to play games in that style

    Smash is balletic roll dodging, picking openings and charge smashing. GTFO with "button mashing." It's a fucking dance, and I'm shite at it.

    Stevie May concussing the shite out of Ryan Jack with his elbow was a disgrace. Plus whatever cunt it was launching the ball at our player when he was upset he wasn't awarded the throw-in. Neither got booked, while Goldson gets booked for fuck-all, a minor foul, perhaps his first of the day. Red card was soft, the guy antagonising Morelos should have been booked as well, plus if he's given the penalty, Dom Ball has to see red. Not saying it's a conspiracy at all, but that was some painfully shite refereeing from Clancy yesterday. But, yes, I think it's just Stevie G creating the siege mentality. I'm up for it! #LETSGO

    A Lumines Thread

    Quite frequently of late I’m getting a crash and error code when I die in the Switch version. Anycunt else? Worried I’ll end up setting a high score and the shit won’t end up saving. Not that my high scores are actually high. I don’t feel like I’m particularly bad at the game, but my completion rate is just 34% on Challenge Mode. It all starts going to shit on the icy blue / white tile, and I tend to eventually succumb on that pink and white blobby stage. Got past it once or twice, but I annoyingly seem to have plateaued around that stage. I’ve only unlocked 25% of the skins. WTF.

    Nintendo Switch

    Not exactly sure why it's in this thread, but FWIW, I'd definitely be delighted with Prime 4 running at a similar visual standard to the Switch version of Doom. Obviously with a slightly different stylistic aesthetic, but I reckon looking at Doom probably gives us a decent idea of what Prime 4 might be capable of.

    GTA Online: Gay Tony is back!

    Yeah, Mario 64 really imagined the camera being operated by a camera man, and I think that mindset has stuck with me. Imagine you were a camera operator and you wanted to pan in order to show the background over the actor’s left shoulder. You’d have to pan right around the front of him in order to capture this. Kinda difficult to explain, but that’s what’s going on inside my head when I’m playing a game. I don’t even really think about it. Just seems weird I can’t do it in GTA which has such a massive audience. I remembered another western 3D game that I played for the first time recently, Arkham Asylum. That allowed for inverted X-axis.
