    Nintendo Labo VR

    Just after all these 'we've tried it & it's a little better than we thought, just don't expect PSVR or Oculus' Videos hit, I received a notification from Amazon that the Starter kit i ordered has been cancelled. It's no longer listed, & though the full kit is, trying to access it just brings you back to the main Amazon page. Not sure what's going on there, but i'm not that concerned. If Amazon don't sort it out i'm sure i'll be able to get it somewhere else.

    Kingdom Hearts 3

    Still making my way through this, & I'm finding it enjoyable to explore the levels, looking for hidden treasures & emblems, & upgrading my Gummi Ship to be more badass (it looks a little like a Tie-Fighter now )...until I reached the Frozen level. I didn't much like it as it felt 'off' in a way that the other worlds didn't, & was trying to put into words exactly why that was, but IMO this video does a great job of doing so & I'm also on board with its explanation as to why. Their theory of what the level was supposed to be was awesome, & IMO it's a real shame that this wasn't the version of this world & character we got.

    Switch - Too many ports?? (Ports Die Twice)

    I would say that NES Online is Nintendo at least starting to acknowledge that they can't sell you the older games over & over any more, & the next logical step in that direction IMO would be similar services for SNES, N64, etc, making it a true 'Nintendo online' service that could be migrated between consoles. What I really want to see however, is for Nintendo to allow you keep your digital purchases. This is possible via a convoluted process for the 3DS & I hope they refine it for the Switch 2/Pro/Plus that everyone thinks is coming, but I really want the WiiU/Switch transition to be the last time I have to rebuy/rebuild my Nintendo library just as I hope the PS3/PS4 transition is the last time I need to rebuild my Sony one. Because if it isn't. I may have to take... (cracks hacking knuckles) Special Measures...

    Switch - Too many ports?? (Ports Die Twice)

    I doubt it will happen because of the ties those studios have to Sony, but I would love the Metal Gear, Sly Cooper & Ratchet & Clank collections to come to Switch, as it's mainly those that are tempting me towards picking up that PS Vita in saw in my local CEX. I would say the Switch is superior to that machine except for battery life & portability, which for a portable machine, are definitely powerful factors.

    Switch - Too many ports?? (Ports Die Twice)

    They've still got a ways to go, but Nintendo do seem to have at least looked up the word 'sale' in a dictionary, & that's what I wait for for the ports I really want. That's how I got Tropical Freeze, though I decided not to get Captain Toad, even though the added DLC for CT was (& still is) tempting... perhaps the next sale on that will reel me in.
  6. In a way, Brie Larson did the manbabies a favor. If she hadn't had said something they could easily twist, they would have had to make something up.

    Nintendo Labo VR

    While i am of the opinion that VR software could really benefit from Nintendo's touch, I don't for a moment think that the sales numbers of the Oculus Go compare in any way to the Nintendo Switch. That's why I really hope that Labo VR is good enough & has enough to it to give Nintendo an accurate overview of how many Switch owners would be open to a more developed Nintendo VR experience.

    Nintendo Labo VR

    Every time I use the Oculus Go I think of what Nintendo could do with this kind of tech. VR that actually works with a 1:1 Motion Controller? Nintendo's absence from that scene is a crying shame, & while I don't expect this Labo Kit to be anywhere near that level, I would hope, if this does well, Nintendo might start thinking more along those kind of lines.
  9. I'm puzzled by the 'Go see Alita instead' narrative that some of these idiots are trying to push. I've haven't seen it, but none of the reviews of it made it seem that friendly to their kind of viewpoint. Or is it simply 'any port in a storm' & anything that stands any chance of dividing the audience is good?

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    It's 100 Rupees per entry, & as there are about 385 entries, it can get really expensive doing it this way, hence why i'm going for the high Rupee harvest you get from Gems. I think it's main purpose is just to fill in the couple you might have missed, like an obscure shield.

    Zelda BOTW 2 years on (and the Future)

    I would like them to revisit the Great Sea/Floating islands ideas from Wind Waker/Skyward Sword, only using the increased power of this generation of consoles to make them less empty & more like cohesive worlds. Having separated landmasses that Link needs some kind of craft to navigate between could also be how you introduce something like a sequel to the Master Cycle, perhaps a mechanical Loftwing that Link finds in a degraded state & it can't do much, & as he completes challenges he can repair & upgrade it so it can reach new areas.

    Zelda BOTW 2 years on (and the Future)

    I’d be very interested to hear what everyone thought of the Master Cycle Zero. Brilliant addition that should be in the next Zelda, if not from the start, at least much earlier than in BotW, or gimmick that didn’t really add anything? Imagine an open-world game where you need the MCZ to get around & complete challenges & even dungeons, like the Batmobile in Arkham Knight, only err... good.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Despite having plenty of other stuff to play, I've started a new game on this, but decided to do things a little differently. I'm not activating towers & I've changed the Sheikah sensor from Shrines to Rare Ore, & the game once again has shown a new side to me. By navigating via landmarks & map pins, It's like i'm really exploring a new land & being surprised by sights i haven't seen before, like when I climbed a cliff to locate one Ore Rock, & from there was able to spot a tunnel filled with Luminous Stones on the cliffs on the other side of the valley. I Paraglided over, only to find that there was a Moblin patrolling up & down the tunnel, & so I landed on some rocks above his head, waited for him to turn around & tried to drop down behind him for a Sneakstrike, only to be mobbed by the Keese I hadn't noticed clinging to the tunnel’s roof. This style of play also means I don't have much in the way of Spirit Orbs (& therefore Heart/Stamina upgrades) under my belt as it's quite possible for me to wander right by Shrines instead of having their location blared out to me via the sensor, but I like that, as having Link a bit weaker means I need to be a bit more cautious, locating Shrines doesn't feel so much like a box-ticking exercise & spotting one feels like an actual discovery. Also, mixing up the order I complete them helps to somewhat counteract the fact that I've completed them all already. The rupees i've raked in so far from Gems have allowed me to buy & fully upgrade the house, & I also plan to just buy the Hylian Compendium Entries (except the few you can't) so I don't need to mess around with photographing everything & can just focus on adventuring. I'm currently taking my trusty horse on a long journey up into Akkala in search of the Teleport Medallion, & then I plan to journey across to the Rito homeland so I can get Ravali's Gale. I estimate both of these powers should come in very handy for this new mountaineering/base-jumping style of adventuring i'm trying out.

    The 3DS Resurrection thread

    AFAIK, 3DS games file sizes average a few hundred MB, with the largest being a couple of GB, so if you intend to download from the eShop, a 128GB card should be plenty.

    Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. My favourite of the M&L series with not only the most refined version of the timing-based combat system but also pretty good writing for the plot & fantastic music.
