  1. This is fantastic - really oppressive and heavy-going, just like Bloodborne - and I'm a huge fan of the sengoku-era dressing and environments. It's also ridiculously difficult, much more difficult than I remember BB being, but then that was a long time ago and I think I've just forgotten how many sodding goes it took me to get headless blood-letting beast down. I've just done the bit mentioned above involving an icy ravine and So good Combat hasn't quite clicked yet tbh, and I miss the tightness of Nioh's interplaying systems, but it's made a hell of a first impression. Can anyone give me some tips for the spear-wielding shinobi hunter you meet in Hirata? He's not even a boss... Kicks my arse handily and I can never tell if he's going to go in for a thrust or a one-shot rising upper. Probably been discussed before, but I'm trying not to read too much of this thread!

    The 3DS Resurrection thread

    Don't forget GB Virtual Console! Making my way through Warioland and it's still got it. Spritework looks so crisp when playing at native resolution on 3DS.

    Shenmue 1&2

    Still such an epic climax after all these years. And then the entirety of 'Disc 4' which serves as the ending... Mind-blowing stuff.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    You'll realise when you get to him that he unfortunately doesn't have much more of a family-friendly name, no.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Any tips for (World of Light first boss spoilers): I seem to do better against him with sword characters but still can't get him past a third of his life bar after an evening's play.

    ARMS - Ninty's Fight Club

    I was on this post-pub last night and can confirm that lobbies were healthy and bustling, with loads of people dropping in and out. A good time was had by all but me, who was thinking it would be a good idea to go with motion controls after four pints...
  7. I absolutely loved this as a kid. Completed both R-Types and then the DX remix over a long holiday and was really proud of myself! I have absolutely no idea how accurate they were to the originals though. How is R-Type Dimensions on the Switch? Are the games arcade-perfect ports?

    Yes Twinkle Star Sprites! If you ever wanted to know what Puyo Puyo would be like were it a shmup, now's your chance.

    Metroid Prime Trilogy (Switch) *unconfirmed*

    It's better than the first. Unparalleled atmosphere, and the feeling of getting stronger and gudder as you make your way through the game predates Dark Souls by seven years. Best bosses in the series by a Chywhuxuyux-approved mile too.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    The best thing about that Fatal Frame stage is that you're forced to play as white Kirby, who looks like a little tubby ghost, which is why all the camera obscura shots are aimed at you!

    Fighting Games that are not Street Fighter

    No way! Split joycon works wonderfully. I haven't played it any other way, and have no problems with besting L6 difficulty arcade mode (haven't tried it any harder to be fair). It's not just waggle, despite appearances; it's all very reactive and satisfying.

    Capcom Beat-Em-Up Bundle, Switch, PS4, Xbox One, PC.

    Niiiice! No Switch patch yet though as of tonight, hope it's incoming.

    Diablo III - Eternal Collection out on Switch

    I don't understand this. Each time I start the game I'm asked to download a language pack that is listed as 'English (UK)' for 4GB, but I ignore it and play the game in english (UK) anyway. I assume it's for if you want to play in Spanish or Russian, but I can't seem to turn the notification off.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 - Single Player, NO SPOILERS thread

    On the saving and loading in a random location thing - it seems to be a device to maintain the illusion of this living, breathing world that you can never hope to have 100% control over. E.g. Arthur himself is still alive and conscious when you turn the game off, and may well get up to his own thing while you're not looking. I saved just outside the stable in Valentine, and woke up slouching against the side wall of the saloon, my hat pulled down low to get some decent sleep. Fantastic idea, I love it!

    Ok, that's interesting. It's my first time with the game, so I naively assumed the slowdown was straight from the MVS game - obviously not! I won't lie and say the slowdown hasn't saved my arse on quite a few occasions with bosses, but I'd much rather an arcade perfect port. Hope it gets fixed. Thanks for pointing this out too!
