  1. Have you bought the 'Special' lures from the bait shop in Lagras? You need to be using the relevant lure (Lake/River/Swamp) in order to catch them. I think I only ever got the notification the first time I was in the area and it was added to the map, don't recall it popping back up when I returned to catch them. Having said that, I keep meaning to check if mine is bugged, as I've caught 4 or 5 of them now and only ever had a reward in the mail from the first one I sent off.

    Ever been totally hooked on one game?

    I was addicted to Championship Manager/Football Manager when I was younger. Spent 100s of hours on them all from CM97/98 up to about FM2010 before I started losing interest in all the new features. I think CM01/02 would have been the most played, had several save games that ran for 10-20 seasons. Plenty of 'just one more game' moments playing it til 4 in the morning on a school night! Quite a few friends played it too, so tactics, signings and achievements would be discussed during lessons the next day. Although I don't play it these days, I really wish I'd kept backups of some of the saved games. It'd be great to load them back up again.
  3. I got a Master System for Christmas when I was around 6 or 7 (so 1990/91). I don't remember if I'd expressed any sort of interest in games before that point, as I'm not sure I'd have played any. I distinctly remember opening up one of my presents and it being a game, and being slightly baffled as I didn't have the console to play it on. Turns out they'd hidden the console itself behind the couch. My playing time was definitely restricted to a certain degree, it was hooked up to the living room TV so I always had to ask permission before turning it on and would be told to turn it off when somebody wanted to watch something. I don't think they were too worried about me spending too much time on it at that point though, as I'd be far more likely to be kicking a ball about outside. They were also fairly lenient on what games I was allowed, though I think it may have been ignorance on their part that I got away with Mortal Kombat 2 when I was only 10. I don't recall my dad ever being interested in playing anything, but my mum was pretty good at Alex Kidd in Miracle World and loved playing Teddy Boy as well. She played a fair amount of Dragon's Fury on the Mega Drive a few years later, but that's the last game I remember her having any interest in. It probably wasn't until I was 13 that I really got 'addicted'. That was all down to the fact my Gran had bought a PC, and I'd spend most weekends there playing Championship Manager. In fairness, I'd also have been playing two games of football and meeting up with mates over the course of those weekends, but that's definitely when I'd have started to play stuff for hours on end, staying up half the night to finish a season. The release of CM3 a couple of years later is basically what put me onto my eventual career in IT, as I needed to upgrade the PC in order to run it properly. I've now got a four-year-old daughter, and although she's had a few goes of running around in Mario Odyssey or playing Mario Kart 8 with all the assists turned on, she usually gets bored and hands the controller back after a few minutes. She'll play the odd game on her tablet, but she's usually more interested in watching stuff on Youtube and dancing along to Baby Shark so it's that we try to limit, rather than gaming time.
  4. Those guys are just looking for the total number of Pokémon you've caught, rather than how many different species.

    @Jamin You don't necessarily need to move your base in that case. You can build multiple bases, so just construct a new base computer on the planet you want.

    Mario Tennis Aces - Get Served

    The main problem with swing mode is that the motion control is just a substitute for the normal button presses. It also still has the 'charge shot' mechanic, so drawing your racquet back too early hinders your movement. Basically if you try to play it like Wii Tennis, it won't work. I'm also not sure if it's just my memory playing tricks on me, but it feels much slower than Wii Tennis was.

    Mario Tennis Aces - Get Served

    I think @Stanley is referring to the stage before that (it sounds like you're talking about the boss stage). The bit with the cogs got me a couple of times because for the smaller ones you actually need to aim where they're going to be, rather than directly at them, as they move a bit faster.

    Nintendo Switch

    I've used the charger from my Nexus 5X to charge my switch fine, as well as a bog standard USB-C cable connected to my power bank.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    For the 'White Bird' one.

    Does it still show 'First played x days ago' instead? It only starts showing the actual time played after 10 days.

    Pocket Card Jockey (3DS)

    If that's 'Fire Boy' you're both referring to, I managed to get him up to level 9, with stats of 95/102. Only done a few races with him in Mature mode so far.

    Football thread 2015/16 season.

    There's also the fact they were only in the CL because of the new rule that gives Europa League holders a spot.

    Having just rewatched the 'Skytanic' episode last week, I appreciated the not so subtle callback to it in the latest episode. Hoping Babou makes a comeback soon too.
  14. Isn't it that he's not actually going to be at any of them, he's just the person behind them all? I thought I'd read there were events around the world organised to take place at the same time.
  15. Wait, so this 'Roosh' thing is at 8pm on Saturday? The Edinburgh one could be just as interesting as Glasgow, given that Scotland play England at Murrayfield earlier in the day, and the Grassmarket will be rammed full of pissed up rugby fans.
