    I have it on switch, should I play it portable with touch, or with joy Cons / pro controller on a big screen?

    Played it on my commute this morning and it was absolutely brilliant.

    Something we agree on! It is fantastic! But yeah, the input lag and loading is pretty unforgivable if true.

    I totally get get what you are saying. And there is a truth to it. But at the same time, as a huge fan of single player games I’m not sure, whether endlessly reducing pricing - first by inflation alone but then by huge discounts just months after release is actually good for my hobby. Sure in the short term, but long term? You just end up with horrendous ‘monetisation strategies’ like single player fucking Loot boxes. I mean I remember when the ds was dead and that the future was iOS games. Cheap, novel, mechanically rich and just so exciting. But the race to bottom killed the perception of value and killed the platform. I want Nintendo games to keep perceived value because I want Nintendo to stay around. That said, with Nintendo’s fantastic industry leading internet account platform and friends code system it would go a long, long way, to give an ‘upgrade discount’ for owners on a prior platform.

    I thought the same thing when Simon and Schuster re-released Catch-22 for the for the kindle. They had nothing new to justify my repurchase and it was just so stingy. It’s like it was just for the people who haven’t read it before. I heard a few people loved it so much they wanted it again portable on a digital device so much they bought it again. But those people got no extra plot no new characters no new DLC or anything. Ridiculous.

    Catch 22, is an absolute classic of a book. Life changer. But do you know they port it to a new format, every couple of years. Sure they might commission a new cover, or choose a different font. If you're lucky, it might be better quality paper. But regardless, it's the exact same book. Simon & Shusters, the publishers, are taking the piss. Don't they know we've read it? They don't even reduce the price! Basically the same price since the 60s. They should just be publishing, brand new, all time classics, multiple times, every year. I mean what are they thinking, each new generation deserve access to this book or something? Absolute nonsense.

    This is exactly Nintendos plan. They make games that are good forever. Not whilst they are graphically cutting edge. I played Super Mario 3 on the NES, Wii, Wii U, NES classic and now the On-line service. Each time they re-released it, they added just enough to justify the purchase again, but very intentionally nothing more. Damn right that in 202X, 203X and no doubt 204X, Nintendo will be re-releasing games I already own, and I will be buying them. And loving them. I've no doubt I will want to play this game at least once a decade from now, and Nintendo will find away to get me to buy it again, rather than plug my retro consoles in.

    Gamers fume because their brilliant games come out so slowly. So nintendo respond by making games quicker with smaller teams. Artistically it's dryer, but the gameplay is as good as ever. So Gamers fume that these more frequent games aren't more polished. They've the same graphics! So Nintendo spend longer to polish the games and gamers fume about the no-games again. So Gamers don't buy the WiiU (to the extent that would have killed sega) but Nintendo survives. Why? By not discounting their games and being very fiscally sensible. Gamers buy the switch at the fastest rate of the generation play incredibly polished evergreen wonders of games and then start fuming that they aren't churned out by the second, whilst still demanding the polish. Nintendo responds by releasing games no one played on a console no one bought to fill the gap. Gamers fume because a company that survived by being fiscally sensible, continues being sensible. TL:DR Everything we hate about Nintendo when they are the flavour of the month, is why they survive when they aren't.

    I bought Donkey Kong again, I completed it again whilst lying in bed. It was worth the money. And in in the official units of Fun per unit Pound it was one of the most worthwhile games I've played this year despite having finished it on WiiU. I've just bought this as well. I'm certain the same thing will happen.

    Music that was too good for the game it was in.

    The ultimate chip tune answer. Tim Follin is the composer. Just incredibly music, for pictionary.

    Bros: After the screaming stops

    This is just spectacular. Found the thread, after Athletico Mince briefly mentioned it. A fantastic start to 2019. Thanks all.

    This is a criminally overlooked game. So many people missed out on the best 2D mario because the art style wasn't updated. Which wasn't entirely fair, as it is a suprisingly prettier game than you expect* - but most importantly the platforming is just the best. It is in a different league to the NSMB2 3DS gold one, and the dreadful (and rock solid) NSMB Wii. If you like platforms and you skipped this because 'its just the same' - you need to right that wrong. I've just set up my Wii U in my spare rotating HDMI slot, so I've no need to double dip, but I want it portable. Maybe after I finish Monster Boy (another incredible game)... * than you expect, but still not great.

    Looks so much better than SNES and 64 though!

    Yeah, DS is one of my favourite of the MKs (Double Dash for lyfe bro) but the snaking was tedious. It is was possible to do, but so tedious and made your hand hurt. Glad it got dropped. Talking of DS, wish they brought back the mission mode. It was so good.
