    All things Yakuza! - Start with Yakuza Zero

    She has no problem with the fast food and street fighting (although the street gangs are a bit tedious when just wandering through the streets) - although strangely, in 2 Kiwami they've dropped all of the random rescue encounters - I used to get a small kick out of coming to the aid of innocent civilians. Plus it justified the violence a bit more than another random gang of bad guys turning up and kicking off. But yeah, some of the other - uh - activities might do it. Although I've seen nothing quite as embarrassing to play as the battling bugs in 1, or the 'wrestling' in 0. Oh, I was forgetting the gravure idols in this. Yeah, that might do it. Mainly because it does seem a little out of character for Kiryu.

    Splatoon 2 - Octo Expansion AVAILABLE NOW

    Jeez, I'm not sure what I'm hating most right now - inkbrushes, rollers or clash blasters. But there's something especially irritating about having an inkbrush player explode into a frantic, ink-splashing frenzy right in front of your nose. Just stand still and get shot, buddy.

    OK, so I just (Yakuza 2 Kiwami spoiler): This series is officially, in my house, the most amazing thing ever. I'm lucky Kiryu isn't real, or my wife would be emigrating to Japan around now. How can I live up to that example of masculinity?

    Nintendo 3DS

    I think I managed to get one of the last few available small new 3DS back in the day - as part of a 'fashion designer' pack Argos had in. That was a couple of years back. The New XL was still available at the time, but I had the first XL version.

    Booyah! During my lunchtime Splatoon session, this happened: So I joined the ranks of the starred - I'm now Level 1*
  7. C'mon - this has to be a sneaky Wiki edit from that list: No. It's legit: http://www.sternpinball.com/games/whoa-nellie/whoa
  8. But no Bally or Williams tables on PA, right? What decent tables are left there?
  9. So which is better for Switch, then? PA or FX? Kinda hard to follow the recommendations in the thread. My preference is for emulation of 'proper' pinball machines.

    Splatoon 2 - Octo Expansion AVAILABLE NOW

    Yeah - if I see a booyah going off for our team, I usually lob a bomb in or near it to either hit the bad guys as they scatter, or to get them on their return. Had a Turf War game in the skatepark Stage where the bastards camped on the central tower with long range weapons - I was running a Splash-o-Matic so I could only lob grenades on top from range, but kept getting splatted down immediately after for giving my location away. Would have loved to have had a Booyah Bomb to shift 'em (but even a sticky grenade would have helped).

    Nintendo Switch

    I know, I have a copy. And now I know it's worth 50p. Or less.

    Nintendo Switch

    The GBA game is actually pretty good - Digital Eclipse designed it, as I recall.

    How are you finding the Booyah Bomb in use? At first I thought it was too slow to be useful - but the range on it is huge, so you can plant it exactly where you want from half a Stage away, as long as you have a clear arc of flight to the target. It also pulls you up out of an immediate danger zone. Good for covering your team-mates approach in clam Blitz - they can fire out of it. It looks like you don't drop the ball in Clam Blitz when you trigger it, either, unlike a Splashdown.

    Crimson Skies is ace!

    WTF? You can buy and play Crimson Skies on the Bone!? Man, I really don't need to spend a few hundred quid just to play this game, do I?
