    Nintendo Switch

    This muddies the water somewhat, unless it is also added to the NESflix collection? I think that risks compromising the value proposition of the service - people will begin to focus on what is not available, rather than what is. Heh, NESflix! That’s a keeper.

    And a kick in the bum is better than a kick in the balls.

    £6 for Sega AGES (née. Megadrive) titles can get tae. I’d be willing to part with £3 per title, Sega, but come on.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    It did indeed, and it was a great soundtrack. Not a reasonable line of defence in the playground, though, when having the piss taken by Sony fanboys for owning the Sega Sad-turd. No licenced music! Can’t do translucencies! No Fifa! Sticking with Sega at that time was a challenge to say the least. All is forgiven now though, I’ll definitely be getting one of these!

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    I’m playin this now based on the very strongly positive word of mouth here and I must say I have not been steered wrong. The way the game system neatly pitches the vulnerability of the player, where taking a hit from a quick enemy hurts just as much as accidentally walking into a spiky piece of scenery, with a very response and satisfying combat system that empowers the player, means from moment to moment the game maintains an enjoyable level of excitement. It’s also very moreish - both through the discovery of beautifully designed new areas and the need to get more geos to buy nice things from the various vendors. Yea, definitely enjoying it!

    Edge #323 25th Anniversary Edition

    Thanks for the suggestions, chanced my arm on the Smiths in Victoria on the way home and got a Guile cover.

    Does anyone know a place in central London that stocks this? I feel like I’m on a wild goose chase.

    Shenmue 1&2

    Very interesting article, I never knew the head and hands changed to higher detail models for the cut scenes!

    You mean Bob’s Pizza, inexplicably owned and operated by a guy called Mario? I mean, what’s that about?

    Just a note of caution when buying using other region’s eShop - my bank (Santander) charged me a £1.25 non-sterling transaction fee the one time I did this. A quick Google suggests this is a flat rate, although the rules are a bit more complicated. Your mileage may vary but obviously with the above example the initial saving would have to be bigger than the transaction fee to make it worthwhile. Edit - writing all that out has encouraged me to link my Monzo card to my Nintendo account, since they don’t charge fees. The advice still stands though.

    Shenmue 1&2

    Yes it has happened to me. Annoying, but you can just quit the game (quit the application) and load it up again, the problem will be fixed.

    Team Yu needs you!

    Without meaning to pick on one post in particular, this has got to go down in history as the wrongest prediction since Michael Fish said everything would be ok.
