  1. October 27, 2017 Nintendo's second GOTY in the first year of their new hardware. What a time to be alive.
  2. The switch thread is a bit of a mega-thread so seeing if we can carve the eShop part of it into its own chat - not going to create a new thread every week but hopefully this will move some of the traffic out the mega-thread. Can I buy from a browser from the eShop ? You need to access the eShop at least once from your Switch before you can buy online. Once you've done that though, yes you can buy online and it'll download automatically. http://www.nintendo.co.uk/Nintendo-Switch/Games/Games-1178441.html eShop Price Comparison www.eshop-prices.com/?currency=GBP How To Access Foreign eShops Specifically looking to set up a Japanese account? Eurogamer have a handy guide here, though the same method applies for all regions. I’m based in Europe… can I log onto overseas eShops? 1) Use a browser to go to accounts.nintendo.com 2) Create a new account 3) Set your region to the one you want, e.g. Japan. NOTE: This can be changed at any time 4) On the Switch, go to SYSTEM SETTINGS > USER > ADD NEW USER. 5) Set icon and nickname (anything memorable will do, but you might want to add ‘JPN’ to the end of the nickname for easy reference) 6) Link this to the account you created in step 2 You can either repeat this step for different territories OR simply use your second account as a floating region, remembering to change the region at accounts.nintendo.com and re-entering your password to agree to the country's specific EULA. NOTE: Any eShop funds you have tied to a specific store (e.g. Japan) will be erased if you switch the account region. ____________ How do I log on to an overseas eshop? Simple: click/press on the eShop icon, then choose the account you want to log in with. Do I have to swap accounts to play overseas games? NO (yippee!). All games show against all accounts Will Japanese/overseas language games show in my local language when I use my local account? Not so far. Game languages support is always on the 'disk' Can I use my credit card to buy from all European countries? Yes. This includes Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Russia, so be sure to check their prices. Can I use my credit card to buy from the US and Japan (and other international stores) ? Unfortunately, no (unless you happen to have a card from that territory). You will have to buy eShop cards from places such eBay, Japan Code Supply or Play-Asia, etc. or use an alternative method (Sorry, no PayPal either). Stocking up with eShop funds has it's disadvantages, however as they can not only be expensive, but should you change your region, any remaining credit will be erased. This goes for changing your main account, too, so please be careful to only top up with the correct amount or as close to that as possible.
  3. Hello! Hollow Knight is a platformer on PC (now), Mac (soon) and Nintendo Switch (sometime this year) and it's utterly beautiful & I'm completely in love with it. Release Trailer: It's a mixture between a metroidvania and a Souls-like; you're exploring a non-linear map which is gated by abilities that your character picks up along the way, while also unlocking shortcuts and collecting & spending "Geos" (souls) which you drop when you die and have to corpse run to get them back or lose them forever. The combat seems tailored towards slow, methodical timed attacks & dodging thus far (I'm 2 hours in, so this might change). I'm finding it difficult but fair, although I'm generally rubbish at video games. Here's a video of me ineptly tackling a mini-boss which I think is a good demonstration of how it mixes the two genres (spoilers for about 3 hours into the game): Up the top-left of the screen are my Geos (the numbered icon) and my Spirit, which you can use to either heal (hold B) or fire a projectile (tap B). You gain Spirit by damaging enemies and Geos by killing them. It's £10.99 on Steam at the moment which is an absolute steal: http://store.steampowered.com/app/367520/ The soundtrack is also very very nice, and you can buy it on Steam or stream it on Spotify. The game was due to come out on the Wii U but it's been moved to the Switch instead and comes out later this year, the release date hasn't been confirmed yet. I'm really enjoying it, there's a great sense of exploration and the combat feels brilliant when you get your timing right. The art-style is beautiful and there's also loads of scenery to smash, which I approve of. You should play this game!

  6. Turns out that wishing for a new Mario RPG is less succesfull when you try using the monkey's paw. EDIT: Right then, editing this because it looks a whole lot better then anticipated. Grant Kirkhope is composing for the game.

    Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

    It's a coming! Without the limitations of Flash I think it'll be amazing! Looks like they had fun making the teaser.

    Onimusha: Warlords

    First released on PS2 in 2001, Onimusha: Warlords arrives on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Steam on January 15, 2019 with a high-definition visual upgrade.

    Looks utterly amazing: It's got a little bits of Super Meat Boy, VVVVV, N++, Escape Goat, and of course Towerfall movement set and midair dash. Single player platformer adventures are still probably my favourite genre, and from the amount I played the single player challenges in Towerfall I trust that this will be another title to look out for. Release later this year.

    Yoku's Island Express

    This game came out recently across all platforms and is incredible. It mixes genres really well and is a: Metroidvania, Platforming game with pinball mechanics. The art style is lovely and the music is joyful. Despite being fairly short, it has fantastic pacing. Check out videos below then go ahead and buy it. It is already one of the games of the year in my opinion. Buy it Xbox Playstation PC Switch
  11. The audio design for this is shaping up to be excellent. I think I'm looking forward to the music more than the actual game... Some golden-oldies.. Roll on Friday!
  12. Most important bit currently: Switch version out on August 7, 2018! Should leave you with enough time to complete Hollow Knight.

    Yoshi's Crafted World - March 2019

    Nintendo finally provided an update on the new Yoshi game for Switch. Confirming the final name Yoshi’s Crafted World, the game launches Spring 2019. Yoshi's Crafted World will allow players to join up with a friend, which is a nice touch; and it also lets players walk backward, practically a sin for side-scrolling platformers. Other than that, Yoshi’s new adventure seems to be much akin to his previous one, except much, much glossier. Which should be alright. So, the game is a side-scrollingplatformer where 3D characters are moved on a 2D plane. Unlike most side-scrolling games, though, Yoshi's Crafted World allows the player to view the game from two opposite viewpoints, allowing the camera to "flip sides" to see behind objects. The viewpoint is changed when the player has the Yoshi character stomp on the ground. Outside of this new mechanic, the game plays similar to prior Yoshi games, where the player may use Yoshi's tongue to eat enemies or other objects, turn them into eggs, and throw them outwardly into the level. The game will feature a two-player multiplayer mode, where each player maneuvers their own Yoshi through the game's levels Screenshots: Japanese debut trailer: Latest trailer:
  17. Thought this game deserved its own thread since it's out of early access now on PC and is really quite excellent. It's also coming to the Switch (no release date confirmed, but 'soon' apparently). For those who don't know, DUSK is a 90's style first-person shooter, meaning no upgradeable weapons, no skill trees, no cut-scenes or dialogue, but rather an old-fashioned key hunt through a series of really well-designed levels filled with horrible monsters, big guns, health packs and power-ups. Combat is fast and brutal (play on the higher difficulties for even faster enemy/projectile movement) and the guns are satisfying to use - particular highlights so far (through most of episode 1 now) are the id-style super shotgun that tears through anything in seconds, and the crossbow that shoots bolts that pass through enemies and also has a kickback effect that can catapult you higher up when in midair. The levels often begin in fairly open outdoor areas that give you a bit of breathing room before things really kick off when you jump down e.g. a dark hole in the ground or a cellar, which is imho where the game really shines as you are forced to react, move and aim quickly when assaulted by a bunch of Quake-style chainsaw-wielding enemies and fireball-throwing cultists in really tight spaces. The game's really atmospheric as well, of particular note is the excellent soundtrack. Don't take my word for it, though, the game critics are loving it so far: Destructoid 95/100: Game Revolution 4.5/5: Twinfinite 5/5: Gamingnexus 9/10: Launch trailer:
  18. Ambition of the Slimes Price: £4.99 Available on: Switch, Steam, Vita, 3DS Metacritic: 70% Ambition of the Slimes is a turn based strategy game with an unusual hook. You play a group of low level Slimes who are extremely vulnerable. You can't really fight. You are weak to any attacks. But you can possess your enemies. It's an interesting idea with surprising depth. Both the Slimes and enemies have the usual elemental resistances (Fire/Water/Grass) and if you possess an enemy of the same element, it strengthens that elemental type. If you possess an enemy with the opposing element, it weakens both resistances. But it doesn't just end there. There are many different enemies to possess. If a slime takes over a female enemy, she can use her charms to lower a male enemies resistance. Why not possess a merchant and bribe other enemies? It comes down to an interesting, almost puzzle like approach to stages. A group of low level enemies will be protecting a high level, armoured Knight. How can you distract the low level enemies to get to the knight? I will admit, I was looking for another SRPG after playing loads of Into the Breach and I stumbled upon this. It's a fiver, so after checking some reviews decided to give it a go. It's very good. It's a neat idea that starts simple but quickly becomes complex with lots of planning required to succeed. And you will need lots of planning: it's not easy. The game can be tough, although never unfairly so and when you make a wrong move, to it learn from it. Finally, it's a fiver. Anyone with any interest in SRPGs should check it out.

    Splatoon 2

    OCTO EXPANSION KLAXON; RELEASES 14/06/2018 NINTENDO CONFIRM FREE UPDATES UNTIL THE END OF THE YEAR NEW AMIIBOS COMING IN 2018 http://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/splatoon-2-switch https://splatoonus.tumblr.com/ [official Tumblr, full of little tidbits of info] Trailers! Art! Splatoon-branded gear! Hooray an actual sequel Splatoon 2 - sequel to the finest squid-based multiplayer shooter in recent memory - releases worldwide on July 27, 2017 for Nintendo Switch. Featuring a singleplayer campaign focusing on the disappearance of Callie (one of the Squid Sisters who featured prominently in the first game) along with... some kind of multiplayer? I've not seen anything that confirms what modes will be present, though going off the recent testfire you can be sure that Turf War will be there. What are you talking about Splatoon is a multiplayer shooter on Wii U, released in 2015. Its main gimmick is that the game's arsenal of weapons all fire ink rather than bullets; while on ink of your team's colour you can turn into a squid and move faster and climb up walls. Whilst submerged in ink you also recharge your ink supply. Ink of the opposing team's colour is dangerous; running through it will slow you down and getting hit by it generally doesn't end well. Turf War is a game mode that lasts three minutes, in which the team who has inked the most turf at the end wins. What kind of weapons are there Buckets! Rollers! Brushes! Sniper rifles. Ones that fire ink.
  20. Announced for PS4 and 3DS! Details Two different games but with the same story Both games slated for 2016 release to coincide with series 30th anniversary. The two games will still have the same core staff working on them. PS4 version is developed with the assistance of Orca. 3DS version is developed with the assistance of Toy Logic. 3DS Version presents a classic 2D Sprite style on the bottom screen, 3D view on the top. 3DS version will have 2D sprite battles + random battles when playing with the D-Pad and 3D battles when playing with the circle-pad. NX version is a possibility - Additionally, we are also considering launching on Nintendos in development NX platform. First footage (from the 1hr10min mark) https://youtu.be/5Kgmb_k3q5U Western release? September 14 - http://www.hardcoregamer.com/2014/09/06/dragon-quest-producers-talk-nintendo-mobile-whats-next-for-series/102483/ [Miyake] "Were pretty sure that Dragon Quest XI will see some sort of western release. We would have loved to have released X as well, but in that case because its an MMO the operation part of it is very difficult to manage between regions. But yes, were hoping XI will be available in the western regions." July 15 - http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2015-07-28-dragon-quest-11-is-coming-to-3ds-and-playstation-4-and-the-nx We don't have a concrete plan at the moment," it reads. "However, we will consider it as we've done in the past for other Dragon Quest titles. We don't have further information to share at the moment."
  21. Any objections? Coming to PS4, Xbox One, Switch and Steam in early 2019.
  22. Will admit, I robbed whole parts of this off the thread on ResetEra. This looks incredibly beautiful. Eurogamer says: Endgadget: The platforming seems a bit simplistic, but I really does remind me of a 2D Journey, in that it's more about the experience than navigating tricky environments. It's out December this year on Switch and PC.

    Xenoblade Chronicles 2

    Sequel to the Wii game? Regardless, it looks amazing. No one does open world JRPGs quite like MonolithSoft. If they can cut out all the extraneous crap from X (and the godawful music), it will be amazing. EDIT: revlob has very kindly created a helpful manual himself:
  24. If anything can convince me to buy a new console it is RPG by Square Enix being developed by the team behind the Bravely games.
