    Nintendo Switch

    In the platform agnostic world we're heading to its probably too controversial to say the wild popularity of this and similar ilk seems to be largely confined to PC gamers, certainly these types of games numbers are much smaller on other platforms and those that migrate across seem to have much less impact than on the PC.

    Sacred had horses in it didn't it....and Nox was meant to have a slightly superior storyline back in the day....but the game play in all of them was fairly similar from what I recall and left a lot to be desired. I somehow foolishly thought from the name Diablo, the prominent demonic logos featured within the game art, combined with probably confusing some completely different game footage with the original Diablo that I'd end playing something that was like sort of cross between king of monsters crossed with dungeon keeper crossed with an RPG. My first switch purchase I've actually regretted and a lesson in doing at least some cursory research before taking the plunge solely on the back of prominent franchise with great fan impressions.

    Made the mistake of purchasing Diablo on the basis of it being pretty much universally highly rated and not actually researching what sort of game it was......only to discover it's a typical PC mash the same button continuously snoozathon that's no different to Nox / Baldur's Gate / Sacred. All games that I found so tedious when I played them back in the day.

    Thanks hadn't thought of that. However Google search only seems to show a PS4 version with no indication that addams family is on the disk...I'd want it on PC, Switch.

    After the joy that 1 has brought 2 is a definite purchase.

    Purchased Guacamele last week as was on offer and finding it absolutely fantastic. The term metroidvania usually puts me off in 2d games as I can find cavernous backtracking / exploring can be disorienting and frustrating (looking at you hollow knight) but this treads the perfect path for me between limitation and unlocking new areas as new abilities are gained. It's held together by a very nice combat system that's easy to pick up but has added depths for those that don't like simple button mashing and an Art style that is pretty unique but looks great in motion.

    Can I play Adams Family anywhere other than on my phone as yet (pinball arcade)?
  8. Gold and Silver's were introduced in The New Tetris on N64. Exact 4x4 composed if 4 identical shapes (4i, 4t, 4squares, 4L) forms gold nugget Exact 4x4 composed of a mixture of shapes yeilds silver nugget. Clearing lines that included bits of gold or silver yeilds bonus. Makes for more interesting risk v reward mechanics and none of the tomfoolery of Tspins, in fact T spins would actually be punished in the game as certain combinations using Tspin would cost you existing gold/silver you'd built.
  9. There should be customisable rules...my preference would be: T-spins off Gold blocks on Silver blocks on

    Anyone played that balloon battle game that just went up this week, looks pretty tempting...
  11. Looks amazing. http://www.indieretronews.com/2019/02/pinball-dreams-cpc-fantastic-amiga.html?m=1
  12. Do perfect clears / all clears do any bonus damage?
  13. I clearly need to practice more and treat the game less as an abstracted tangram exercise. Hopefully they'll introduce an option to choose between rule variants at some point in the future
  14. Physical blocks cannot be rotated past each other the way a t spin does.... I think even in the game I don't think any of the other blocks can be rotated through adjoining blocks to complete lines in the same way that the t spin is allowed to which is completely inconsistent. The New Tetris ( best version by far ) added a whole extra layer of strategy with its gold and silver blocks but did not resort to rewarding a t spin gimmick. You could say the game rules allow it but official rules can ruin gameplay as I discovered how much I hated the official rules of scrabble when I played against the AI on my DS and encountered its endless use of Scots/yank/any language you care to name slang words
  15. I'he nothing against the hold but I really don't like t spins feels like cheating and not in tune with the basic gameplay of arranging shapes to naturally fit together. A t spin rotates a block in a way that would be impossible in real life.
