    Splatoon 2

    Yes, it's the same - though the maps vary by game type - so turf war will have 2 maps, ranked will have 2 different maps, and league a further 2 different maps - so at any point 6 maps will be on offer between the different modes. Plus Salmon Run. And then it's 3, including one exclusive, when there is a spatfest on. Just you wait until you hit lvl 10 and open up ranked. It's like crack, the desire to play just one more 3 min round to try and push that bar up more. The desperate feeling when you're almost there but have 3 cracks already. The joy when you rank up, followed buy the 'oh shit' at how good some of the new players in the pool are lol
  2. There's a quote for the box.
  3. Digital Foundry are in an interesting spot with this - they usually jump all over anything that's not perfect - it's skipping frames, it's stuttering, it's dropping resolution at this point etc Yet here they are, right up front on a system that's going to have to hug these kinds of things to it's very bosom if it wants to deliver content to a good chunk of homes. It's going to be really interesting - bravo to them for trying, let's see where it takes us.

    Baldur's Gate finally gets confirmed:

    Clam Blitz is all about being on the offensive - building up pressure and then taking the chances that open up. If you try to play too cautiously, it doesn't often work. You need to be on the front-foot and trying to force an opening. It's really important to remember that if you break open the opposition basket, your own is then protected - so strike first. It is tricky though, it requires a bit more team co-ordination than the other modes I find.

    How on earth has it taken you this long!? Brace yourself, it's bloody glorious. Just make sure you get to at least level 10 - that way the ranked stuff will unlock alongside the standard turf war mode.

    It's kind of decent actually - the demo (which features Turf War, Salmon Run, League Battle, and Ranked Battle) also gives you a free 7 day trial of the online sub and also 33% off Splatoon if you do then decide to buy during the demo period (which you really should, as it's ACE). Be RUDE not to. RUDE.

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

    I guess what people feel is what people feel, but to me the ports aren't anywhere near as bad as people are saying. Here's the list I posted earlier in this thread: Smash Bros, Pokemon, Zelda, Mario Kart, Mario Odyssey, ARMS, Octopath, Donkey Kong, Fire Emblem Warriors, Hyrule Warriors, Kirby, NSMB, Xenoblade 2, Pokken, Mario Party, Splatoon 2, Labo (multiple), Mario Tennis, Yoshi, Captain Toad, 1-2 Switch... That's 21+ titles, of which only 6 (MK, DK, HW, NSMB, Pokken, Captain Toad) are ports. It's a relatively small proportion of their output overall still. And we know we have Fire Emblem, Animal Crossing, Luigi's Mansion, Mario Maker, Astral Chain, Daemon x Machina, and another Pokemon coming this year already. Plus Link's Awakening (which treads the line so not sure where that falls). With E3 still to come. They do need to pull their damn finger out on Pikmin though

    You have heard correctly. It's peak Nintendo.

    At this point I'm legally and morally obliged to say: SPLATOON, BUY IT.

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

    They've not been 'sparse' at all. Might not be releasing what you specifically want, but to say Nintendo exclusives have been sparse when in 2 years we have all of the below already published by Nintendo on Switch is a bit OTT: Smash Bros, Pokemon, Zelda, Mario Kart, Mario Odyssey, ARMS, Octopath, Donkey Kong, Fire Emblem Warriors, Hyrule Warriors, Kirby, NSMB, Xenoblade 2, Pokken, Mario Party, Splatoon 2, Labo (multiple), Mario Tennis, Yoshi, Captain Toad, 1-2 Switch... I've not personally bought anything for a while as I don't like Pokemon or Smash Bros - but that doesn't mean they haven't released them and they haven't done well (phenomenally so with Smash Bros).

    Can't ever really see more choice as a bad thing - if nothing else, they are making all of the games portable for the first time. Metroid Prime and Resident Evil 4 in my hands for a sun terrace hipster party, YES PLEASE TARQUIN.
