    Best one hit wonder of all time

    This counts surely For reference the album is fucking awful just in case anyone was wondering - but I still love this track And as far as the UK goes this was a one hit wonder (although its not even the bands best song)

    New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe (2019)

    I'm confused - relative to the user base this sold incredibly well - its less well recognised mainly because it appeared on a console that well failed miserably to set the world on fire. For anyone in doubt this has probably the best level design of any 2D Mario full stop. Anyone who like 'old' style Mario games and skipped the WiiU needs to buy it...

    I have this one and have road tested it on more than one Trans Atlantic flight Works a treat https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00VJSGT2A/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Xbox One backwards compatibility - Server Runtime Error

    Number of games released on the 360 - 1010 according to this wiki link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Xbox_360_games Number of games currently backwards compatible 533 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_backward_compatible_games_for_Xbox_One Got a way to go yet...
  7. That doesn't seem to come up for me anymore - sure it used to but no just checked again and its not there. Sad to see The Division is leaving - was considering giving that a spin given the sequel is coming out

    New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe (2019)

    I think they kind of are though as you just demonstrated as we're buying them I still have my WiiU set up in the lounge with this game freely available and yet I'm buying it....so I can play it in bed (and play the Lugi stuff I never got too)

    Microsoft Rewards

    The offer was double points for a month so maybe that’s elapsed? I’m still getting double but only had it for a couple of weeks.

    What games did you complete? 2018 Edition

    Right a year in gaming - this year I'll endeavour to actually update this in real time but for posteity 1. Hellblade - Senua's Sacrifice - an amazing audio and visual experience. Yes there is a game in there too which is actually more than half diverting but its what the game does with narrative and audio that makes it memorable 2. What Remains of Edith Finch - I loved and hated this and ranted about in about 3 other threads. A fantastic experience rather undermined by the lazy ending but not to take away from what I experienced whilst playing. 3. Inside - overrated - I could say more but I'll leave it there. The ending was interesting I'll give it that 4.Bound - WTF. Strikingly beautiful but what did I play? 5. Celeste - crazily infectious, unexpectedly moving story. Played it every second I could thanks to the Switch 5. God of War - fuck me. An achievement in every sense of the word. Narratively clever, visually mind blowing and visceral to play. My pick for the year. The only game I've played this year where I veered of the main story path, slayed a dragon, explored a castle and found it was all but a side story. 6. Kirby Star Friends - its a Kirby game and it just got better the more that was added. Magic 7. Tomb Raider - Xbox One remaster - one of my favourites of the last gen. Its not quite what I remembered but still such an experience and probably the best third person combat I've played in recent years 8. Sunset Overdrive - long overdue play though given I love pretty much all of Imsomniac's output and superhero open world games. Visually spectacular, clever in all so many ways and well hot lava the game works far better than you might expect. Its got a learning curve that some might resist but basically its fucking fabulous. 9. Yakuza 0 - Shenmue meets Streets of Rage in 80s Japan. Pretty much as good as that sounds without the shit that those games carried. Oh and a crazy mafia themed soap opera for a plot. Fab 10. Destiny 2 Forsaken - well despite my reservations it dragged me back in for at least 2 months (yes thats daily for 2 months). When Bungee get the mix right they create magic like no one else. I maxed 600 and thought I was done - pretty much certain I am until something more significant lands content wise than the series pass, but it takes little for me to slip back into a little Crucible... 11. Marvels Spider-Man - possibly my favourite developer taking on my favourite comic book character. You guess the rest. Maybe it does owe too much to the Activision games of the past but no one nailed being Spidey quite like this. And that last third is hand on heart the best thing I've played in a decade or more. 12. Darksiders III - many thoughts expressed elsewhere - so its a much better game than its performance on console suggests - when it works its more Darksiders and its all the better for that. 13. Abzu - its Journey underwater. Only not as good, but still quite the ride. Its on gamepass so if you have an Xboxone you really should play it 14. Strange Brigade - the love and care that went into this horde shooter belies its commercial success. It looks fabulous and plays compulsively - no one bought it but you can at least play it on Gamepass. Old fashioned yes but it rarely puts a foot wrong.

    Nintendo Switch

    Amusingly I agree - Nintendoland is in the very select group of games that my wife actually likes (Ocarina of Time and Myst being the only other exceptions) and the hilarity that the four of us have had playing is worth the purchase of said device But sadly one game does not make a console and so whilst the WiiU will be hooked up for a few years yet I suspect (at least until we move beyond the Skylanders obsession), I can't really feel nostalgic for the WiiU when the Switch basically takes the principle and perfects it.

    The Wind Waker remake for WiiU - not just HD

    I still adore this game and the remaster was just so beautiful. Best Zelda, don’t care if you think I’m crazy, it’s just so pretty I’d honestly buy it a third time to have it on the go, are you listening Nintendo? I guess it’s true what they say about your first Zelda...

    Nintendo Switch

    Okay more logical points, I miss Miiverse too and Nintendo’s treatment of the VC is indeed bizarre - I crazily would pay (more) real cash money just to play the GC games and earlier on Switch that they released for the WiiU. The current situation is literally leaving the nostalgia credit on the table. I’m less bothered by the omission of activity log and themes though to be honest, if you really want play times the parent app does it and I kind of like the clean interface of the Switch OS. I guess what I’m saying is in almost every way the WiiU was a Switch prototype and i can’t really see how you’d miss what it had over what the Switch added. But they remain leaving cash on the table for idiots like me that would spend 40notes on the ability to play Wind Walker or Twlight Princess on the go, or indeed Skyward Sword with normal controls

    Nintendo Switch

    Hmmm okay maybe but no real logistical way that would be possible on any device that didn't have an independent screen whilst being attached to a TV so on balance I'll take being able to play the Switch in bed as opposed to the WiiU gamepad losing connection the moment I stepped foot outside my living room. But maps - seriously are we going for maps? I think my point stands...

    Cuphead. Classic cartoon inspired side-scroller

    I'm reman both amazed and infuriated that this isn't on Gamepass Seriously Microsoft sort it out (I want to play it but I'm cheap)
