    A critical take on the Nintendo Switch

    The one thing that annoys me about the Switch is that I can not connect my Bluetooth headset to it. I can with my Vita, and that is several years old. It would be awesome to be able to play on the train (yes, it is portable) without wires trailing. AFAIK there is an issue with the maximum number of simultaneous Bluetooth connections possible meaning there would be issues if eight players were to want to play and use a BT headset simultaneously. But with a portable console released in 2017 it feels like this is an oversight.

    All things Yakuza!

    Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami are £11.99 each on PSN. If, for whatever reason, you have yet to learn what a burusera girl is then you must purchase Yakuza 0.

    Sony Blocking Accounts Between Devices

    It is a shitty practice. I can understand, even if I dislike, blocking cross-platform play. But preventing linking accounts, which include purchases, is bollocks. At this stage in the console cycle, when (I expect) quite a few households have more than one console, it may drive a good number away from Sony's machine for one of the biggest games on the market. And I hope it does. When Nintendo's online strategy is better than yours, then your company has screwed up.

    Is "Game" finished?

    I have no love for Game, but I am mighty tempted to pop in on Friday to replace my launch PS4 with a new slim model with an extra controller for £100 (link). £100 for a more efficient, new console with an additional controller and 12m warranty seems all right, no? Being Game I half expect some ludicrous twist, but the T&Cs seem legit.

    Worst game names ever

    I quite like this title. It is a bit blunt but it does a good job of emphasising the two key relationships in the game, between the boys and with their father, underlyin underlining the motivations of the protagonists. Edit: Snap!

    OK, I need a chain of games.

    Maybe worth tracking down some old Stream classics which can be picked up for peanuts. To the Moon, World of Goo and Braid perhaps, which are pretty much impossible be to fail, have a smooth learning curve, and feature a gameplay-driven narrative.

    Team Sonic Racing

    They have to restrict themselves to Sonic characters because if they used the best Sega characters then everybody would just pick this guy the whole time:

    Fallout 76 - Prepare Your GaaS Masks

    Fallout + Rabbids Wastelands Battle.
  9. BC is a big deal IMO. If the XB1 had it from the start then I would have been more tempted to buy it (although its other 'features' would still have put me off). By not supporting the previous gen there was no real advantage to buying the XB1 over the PS4, so there was no need to be loyal to the ecosystem into which I had bought. That said, the XB1's card was marked from the disastrous E3 showing. It was the death of a thousand decapitations, many of which would have stood out on their own as a reason to not buy it: More expensive than the PS4 Mandatory Kinect connection, always watching and listening, even when switched off Mandatory constant internet connection Severely restricted second hand games market Less powerful than the PS4 Don Mattrick's creepy gurning face By the time Microsoft had backtracked on some of these, Sony was already running ahead, with a more powerful, cheaper machine and some frankly brilliant marketing. Microsoft was a laughing stock at that point, and even mainstream news outlets were reporting the problems with the reveal. How do you possibly come back from that? Microsoft ditched as much as they could, and were left with a more expensive, less powerful machine bundled with a peripheral that the market did not want. And at that stage what was the XB1's selling point? Forza and Halo, as far as I recall. It is to Microsoft's credit that they soaked up the problems and gave it a go this generation, but they must have sunk so much cash into a generation when they were planning to make their gaming division profitable. And do not forget, Japan is still a huge market and Microsoft have never managed to get a foothold there. But I am pleased that they got spanked this gen. It will hopefully stop them and Sony from trying any more of that anti-consumer bollocks for another decade.

    The Bridge

    Anyone else watching this? After a strong first episode I was disappointed by the second:

    Babylon 5

    Excellent news. Whenever I see this thread being bumped I always open it expecting news of the death of another of the actors. Clearly this is much better.

    Nintendo Switch eShop

    Only £15 as well, of you buy it from the S.African eshop.
  13. I expect them to cancel all orders. I guess that there is an error on their systems - should they not stop taking orders when they hit their allocation, which I can only imagine has been far exceeded by this point? I would be perfectly happy if orders are converted to standard editions though at this price.

    All things Yakuza!

    It is an amazing game. I would recommend not coming back to this thread until you have completed it though, to avoid plot spoilers like:
