  1. Wish Fez and Spelunky were both on Switch. Will be getting Touryst at some point but only in a sale I think.
  2. I'm not finding the weapons as fun as I remember them being. The DMR is still amazing but the assault rifle just feels a bit naff and most of the energy weapons don't seem as fun to use as I remember. Also trying to take out a shielded enemy takes too long with kinetic weapons; I know using energy weapons is supposed to be better but I don't remember kinetic ones being this ineffective. Maybe Destiny's gun play has spoiled me, with the upgradeable weapons and the wide variety of them? I don't mind so much picking up weapons as I find them, it forces you to adapt, it's just that they're not that satisfying. I know there's a separate issue with the sound quality of the weapons, it's not just that. they just don't feel accurate or particularly interesting? Still loving the atmosphere and story, and the gameplay systems in general are great, I'm just not enjoying the moment-to-moment play. Which is kind of Halo's thing.
  3. Can recommend Flinthook if anyone's after something a bit Rogue Legacy-ish, it's only £11. Great fun swinging around levels and there's a lot of nuance to the controls. You unlock stuff for future runs so every go is worthwhile too. Had to turn the music off, though I do for most games these days...
  4. Best one I've seen for OG Switch (with better battery) was on HUKD, comes with pokemon and MK8 for £300 https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/nintendo-switch-2019-version-pokemon-sword-mario-kart-deluxe-29900-3345737 Or if you prefer Lego https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/nintendo-switch-improved-battery-3345023 Think there was a Lite on for under £200 as well but really they're not discounting the hardware much.
  5. I kind of like Celeste but I do find it very fiddly. Like I feel I'm doing the right button combinations but it's not quite natural to me. Also because you move on from a screen and never really come back to it unless you're backtracking, it lacks that feeling of improving since it's a new set of challenges on each screen. The great thing about Rogue Legacy is that although it's procedurally generated, it's essentially just randomising defined room layouts so you can actually get better at them. Also each run will probably make you stronger every time so there's always something to gain. I avoided doing bosses out of fear but after a few hours you can basically just stand in front of them and whack em to death. Lovely game, very relaxing.
  6. I love Ringing Nail too, it's great at a bit of distance so it pairs well with my Trackless Waste (another gun people never seem to mention, though I mostly play PvE to be fair).
  7. Have you seen Juicy Realm? It's similar to Enter the Gungeon except the difficulty is kind of inverted from that - I finished Juicy Realm the first time I played it (and I'm not that great at EtG) but that's just normal mode; finishing it then unlocks hard mode and there are apparently other kinds of modifiers on top of that that can make it more difficult / interesting. It's more relaxing than EtG though maybe not as satisfying. It's £10.79 at the minute. EDIT: The controls confused me at first but I remapped them to be the same as EtG and that was much better.
  8. Just watched the SwitchUp review after your recommendation and bought it, only £12 something.
  9. Yeah I'm (not) hoping for a Black Friday sale too! Bought a new winter coat for £300 last week though so money's a bit tight this month. Katana Zero is on my list as well - if you want a kind of 2D demake of it then Akane is a fun distraction for less than £2… As is Jumping Joe & Friends. Was hoping to be playing Breath of the Wild but they'd run out when I got my Switch Lite so really hoping it comes down a little for BF (not likely I know).
  10. Comes out 20/11 on the Switch so think I'll wait for that one, looks great though.
  11. I haven't played Banana Blitz but to be honest I like the sound of it being easier I played the originals on the Gamecube too and I know they're objectively better. Not worth anything like £35 to me tho, more like £15ish. Too much competition on Switch for that.
  12. I tried to like it, but it always felt like a much naffer Polaris Lance to me, so I just started using that again.
  13. Love that white case I'd have to get that one Just waiting for a parcel to appear in my nearby Amazon locker and then I might have a see-if-I'm-tempted wander...
  14. It's a tiny, tiny bit of of a faff undocking it and putting it in its case and taking it to work / on trips and then putting it back again when I get in. That's it really. Bit bulky to play on a train I guess? Yep the Lite is just smaller and lighter, though I can just keep it in my bag. Oh and it means I don't have to quit a game I'm playing on my main Switch if I fancy playing something else. I really genuinely don't need one, I live alone so it's not like I'm ever unable to play the main one. I'd also have to get another memory card & case...
  15. Yeah, like you I don't think I'd have bought a Switch if it didn't have the account system. I'm working from home today and I made the mistake of a) checking my bank balance which isn't as bad as I thought it'd be and b) looking at Lite deals at Currys which is 10 minutes away from me. I have a normal Switch already and I really really don't need a Lite. But also I definitely do. You get 6 months Spotify free as well so that's like actually saving me money right since I already subscribe? Right?
