  1. How noisy is this with the drum? I mostly only get to play games when the kids are in bed and if it's anything like Rock Band it'll be out of the question with all the clickerty-clacking.
  2. I fell into Argos this afternoon; money flying out of my pocket onto the counter; and when I stumbled out I found I had a copy of this in my hand. Clumsy clumsy.

    Nintendo Switch

    I've had a fault in all three sets of Joy Con controllers I've bought (grey, neon, Splatoon ) and have a scratch on the screen. It's a testament to how good the software has been that I haven't launched the machine out of the window in a rage, quite frankly.
  4. I thought exactly the same. My children are six and eight and have been interested in playing but I'd been reluctant due to the PEGI 16 on the box. Couldn't really figure out what the big deal was until I got to that bit and it suddenly decided to ramp up the harrowing.

    Yoku's Island Express

    I also struggled with the slugs until I realised it has to be a 'fresh' button press. You can't just be holding it down from a previous use of the flipper. You have to flip then suck

    Death Stranding - Kojima at it again

    Can't help but think that those demanding clarification and something concrete are missing the point a bit. I'm absolutely loving not having a fucking clue about this.

    The Arcade Ten

    Interpreting this as they have to be actual machines that live near the sea and eat money. Dance Dance Revolution Galaga Scramble Hang On Time Crisis Crazy Taxi Daytona USA Ridge Racer House of the Dead Ghost Squad Told this story a million times on here but I'll tell it again because it's cute; my grandparents used to have a static caravan in Maldon (no, I don't understand why either). Whenever we used to go down there my auntie would take me to the arcade, but I was so small that on the walk I would drag a milk crate on a bit of rope behind me so I could stand on it to reach the controls. Pretty sure playing Galaga down there is when I fell for videogames. Also, when I was in my teens, my Dad used to have a bit of money and live an hour down the road in that there London. I used to visit for a weekend once a month and he'd want to take me to the theatre or the museums or to an exhibition to make memories. I just wanted to go to the Troc' and watch all the dudes on Dance Dance Revolution. Man, they looked so cool!

    Nintendo Switch

    Me too. Loaded it up for a go last night and it's pretty wonky on the whole but THAT MUSIC!!!

    Nintendo Switch

    Found the experience of signing up for a family sub remarkably painless this morning. Was expecting it to be all very Nintendo, but it was pretty simple.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    It is a bit annoying to not know the full lineup, although I suspect they've made a quick announcement today to try and grab the headlines over the launch of the Switch online service. Think PaRappa is a given. Would love to see Bishi Bashi Special or International Track and Field.
  11. I absolutely love drawing up a top games list. The last time was when @Benny did his top 100 for the forum last year. I don't tend to update it too regularly; once every couple of years or so; but I am fairly obsessed with my top ten of whatever the current year is. I basically spend the entire 12 months jiggling around every new release I play in a little mental list until I settle on it just before Christmas and write it in a notebook that I keep by gaming shelf. No, I don't have many friends, why do you ask? (20. Digidrive 19. Overwatch 18. WipEout HD 17. Splatoon 2 16. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe 15. Virtue's Last Reward 14. Metal Gear Solid 3 13. Nex Machina 12. Super Meat Boy 11. Resident Evil 4 10. Super Mario 3D World 9. WarioWare Inc 8. Super Mario World 7. Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan 6. Portal 5. Link to the Past 4. Frequency 3. Bloodborne 2. Rock Band 3 1. Rez Infinite)
  12. It doesn't matter if the Y axis is inverted or not.
  13. Smash Bros Ultimate Unimaginable distances are travelled to bring together a group of heroes from impossibly different universes and when they all arrive they realise that the only thing they have in common is the urge to kick the shit out of each other.
  14. Incredibly good first impression of this. Seems to take everything that was good about Infamous (traversal, feeling badass) whilst fixing everything that was bad about Infamous (combat, a total lack of anything that even approaches charm)

    Forgotten bangers

    YES! Endlessly inventive, effortlessly charming, completely forgotten. I think it came out around the same time as Sands of Time and Beyond Good and Evil and just got a bit lost and never really recovered.
