  1. Hello! Hollow Knight is a platformer on PC (now), Mac (soon) and Nintendo Switch (sometime this year) and it's utterly beautiful & I'm completely in love with it. Release Trailer: It's a mixture between a metroidvania and a Souls-like; you're exploring a non-linear map which is gated by abilities that your character picks up along the way, while also unlocking shortcuts and collecting & spending "Geos" (souls) which you drop when you die and have to corpse run to get them back or lose them forever. The combat seems tailored towards slow, methodical timed attacks & dodging thus far (I'm 2 hours in, so this might change). I'm finding it difficult but fair, although I'm generally rubbish at video games. Here's a video of me ineptly tackling a mini-boss which I think is a good demonstration of how it mixes the two genres (spoilers for about 3 hours into the game): Up the top-left of the screen are my Geos (the numbered icon) and my Spirit, which you can use to either heal (hold B) or fire a projectile (tap B). You gain Spirit by damaging enemies and Geos by killing them. It's £10.99 on Steam at the moment which is an absolute steal: http://store.steampowered.com/app/367520/ The soundtrack is also very very nice, and you can buy it on Steam or stream it on Spotify. The game was due to come out on the Wii U but it's been moved to the Switch instead and comes out later this year, the release date hasn't been confirmed yet. I'm really enjoying it, there's a great sense of exploration and the combat feels brilliant when you get your timing right. The art-style is beautiful and there's also loads of scenery to smash, which I approve of. You should play this game!
  2. Out today! I’m getting it on Switch. I may have ordered 3 ships off amazon last night as well. Reviews have been decent for the most part.

    Or in slightly off-shoot related language-speak:
  4. The switch thread is a bit of a mega-thread so seeing if we can carve the eShop part of it into its own chat - not going to create a new thread every week but hopefully this will move some of the traffic out the mega-thread. Can I buy from a browser from the eShop ? You need to access the eShop at least once from your Switch before you can buy online. Once you've done that though, yes you can buy online and it'll download automatically. http://www.nintendo.co.uk/Nintendo-Switch/Games/Games-1178441.html eShop Price Comparison www.eshop-prices.com/?currency=GBP How To Access Foreign eShops Specifically looking to set up a Japanese account? Eurogamer have a handy guide here, though the same method applies for all regions. I’m based in Europe… can I log onto overseas eShops? 1) Use a browser to go to accounts.nintendo.com 2) Create a new account 3) Set your region to the one you want, e.g. Japan. NOTE: This can be changed at any time 4) On the Switch, go to SYSTEM SETTINGS > USER > ADD NEW USER. 5) Set icon and nickname (anything memorable will do, but you might want to add ‘JPN’ to the end of the nickname for easy reference) 6) Link this to the account you created in step 2 You can either repeat this step for different territories OR simply use your second account as a floating region, remembering to change the region at accounts.nintendo.com and re-entering your password to agree to the country's specific EULA. NOTE: Any eShop funds you have tied to a specific store (e.g. Japan) will be erased if you switch the account region. ____________ How do I log on to an overseas eshop? Simple: click/press on the eShop icon, then choose the account you want to log in with. Do I have to swap accounts to play overseas games? NO (yippee!). All games show against all accounts Will Japanese/overseas language games show in my local language when I use my local account? Not so far. Game languages support is always on the 'disk' Can I use my credit card to buy from all European countries? Yes. This includes Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Russia, so be sure to check their prices. Can I use my credit card to buy from the US and Japan (and other international stores) ? Unfortunately, no (unless you happen to have a card from that territory). You will have to buy eShop cards from places such eBay, Japan Code Supply or Play-Asia, etc. or use an alternative method (Sorry, no PayPal either). Stocking up with eShop funds has it's disadvantages, however as they can not only be expensive, but should you change your region, any remaining credit will be erased. This goes for changing your main account, too, so please be careful to only top up with the correct amount or as close to that as possible.

  6. OCTO EXPANSION KLAXON; RELEASES 14/06/2018 NINTENDO CONFIRM FREE UPDATES UNTIL THE END OF THE YEAR NEW AMIIBOS COMING IN 2018 http://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/splatoon-2-switch https://splatoonus.tumblr.com/ [official Tumblr, full of little tidbits of info] Trailers! Art! Splatoon-branded gear! Hooray an actual sequel Splatoon 2 - sequel to the finest squid-based multiplayer shooter in recent memory - releases worldwide on July 27, 2017 for Nintendo Switch. Featuring a singleplayer campaign focusing on the disappearance of Callie (one of the Squid Sisters who featured prominently in the first game) along with... some kind of multiplayer? I've not seen anything that confirms what modes will be present, though going off the recent testfire you can be sure that Turf War will be there. What are you talking about Splatoon is a multiplayer shooter on Wii U, released in 2015. Its main gimmick is that the game's arsenal of weapons all fire ink rather than bullets; while on ink of your team's colour you can turn into a squid and move faster and climb up walls. Whilst submerged in ink you also recharge your ink supply. Ink of the opposing team's colour is dangerous; running through it will slow you down and getting hit by it generally doesn't end well. Turf War is a game mode that lasts three minutes, in which the team who has inked the most turf at the end wins. What kind of weapons are there Buckets! Rollers! Brushes! Sniper rifles. Ones that fire ink.
  7. Did anyone else start playing this on the Switch the other day (Or indeed has played it on other platforms). I'm really enjoying myself. Combat is fast and fun. The plot can be a little talky and slow but I like the castaways idea and building up the base slowly as you move through the plot is satisfying. Currently I'm level 30.

  9. Seems like the seminal rhythm based action game that debuted on the PS2 way back in 2004 is getting a PS4/Switch release as well. In Japan at least. But as the Switch is region-free, we finally get the opportunity to join in the drum beating madness once again! Namco Bandai are actually releasing the game in the West as well!! Sugoooooiii!!! Gameplay sees symbols moving horizontally along a timeline showing what to hit and when. Most home versions distinguish single and double strikes, while arcade versions distinguish between hard and soft strikes. A drum simulating the taiko is played in time with music. Successful play builds up a life meter. If the meter is past a certain point by the end of the song, the song is passed. Despite the game's appearance, players may find the game challenging to master. Players need to accomplish at least a 65% clearance of a song which is determined by the 'tamashi gauge' to pass, and can become challenging on harder difficulties as players progress. Debut trailer: Latest trailers: Will be released in Europe for both the PS4 and Switch later this Autumn... !!! WARNING: Avoid buying the PS4 version if you want to use drum controllers. Apparently the build quality is lamentable, compared to their more reliable Switch counterparts !!!

    Kirby Star Allies

    The first Kirby game for the Nintendo Switch has finally been named: Kirby Star Allies is a platform game played from a side-down perspective. Players control the series' titular protagonist Kirby can be accompanied by up to three companions. Kirby can throw hearts at enemies to turn them into his allies.

Kirby Star Allies is being developed by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo. The game was initially teased under the tentative title Kirby during the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017. In September 2017, the game's official title was announced during a Nintendo Direct presentation. The game is scheduled to be released for the Nintendo Switch game console on 16 March 2018 Debut trailer: Launch trailer: Accolades trailer: Kirby Star Allies is set for a Spring 2018 release on the Nintendo Switch.

    Stardew Valley

    Shameless rip off, spiritual sequel or adoring love letter to a bygone era? Who cares! It's a new 2D, top-down Harvest Moon in all but name, made by one guy over four years, with utterly lovely art and tilesets, a wonderful, extensive soundtrack, loads of NPCs with a seemingly large database of dialogue, all the HM gameplay stapes we've come to expect (farming, fishing, cooking, wooing) and all sorts of new elements thrown in for good measure (dungeon crawling, levelling, mining, weapons and armour, decorating, collecting and goodness knows what else). Behold my paltry first crop of summer! Buy some seeds, plant them, water them for a few days, then reap the hot peppers! You know the drill. Either sell them for gold or shove them in your backpack for much needed energy on a dungeon crawling hike. Or give them to one of the NPCs in the hope they'll fuck you. It is taking more than a few hot peppers, I am finding. Die, slimes! I believe I was on a mission for the adventurer's guild here. Yes, the adventurer's guild. Yes, a mission. They paid me in gold coins and I spent them on a pair of sneakers. I am roleplaying a stereotypical lesbian farmer - I thought she'd buy sensible footwear. I have my eye on a girl called Leah. More on her later. Here is another mission I have not yet conquered: Mayor Lewis is a bachelor. He values discretion very highly. In addition to farming, I am pursuing another stereotypical butch pasttime: fishing. That's right, rllmuk! +1 Fishing Rod Proficiency, right here. I can now make a crab pot - or will be able to once I gather the appropriate crafting materials. What is a crab pot? I don't know. And we're talking Animal Crossing levels of fish action here. Not just fish, either - collectables gallore to donate to the museum. KK Slider is filing a copyright infringement suit as we speak. The NPCs all have daily routines and cycles: some serve at shops then bugger off to the pub at 5pm then don't go home until midnight. I waited outside Mayor Lewis the bachelor's home until 1am, hoping to give him a present he'd asked for, and he never came home. Where was he? What was he up to? I have my suspicions. There is a doctor, a publican, a fisherman, a tramp and others. Here is Demetrius the scientist, suggesting I get his wife to show me how to use my telescope round the back: You can build the usual chicken coops and barns and house extensions, but there are other intriguing buildings such as the Slime Hutch: Here you can create slime balls. This building costs 10,000 gold. As you can see, I currently have ... 83 gold. For now, slime balls are a dream. There is a day/night cycle (limited to 2am so far). There are seasons. There are festivals and special events. All the girls refused to dance with me at the summer dancing fair, but I think gay marriage is in, judging by the unisex array of weddable single people - if it's not I'm getting a fucking refund, but we'll soon see. That is all for now. I am trying to get into Leah's house. Updates soon.

    Yoshi's Crafted World

    Nintendo finally provided an update on the new Yoshi game for Switch. Confirming the final name Yoshi’s Crafted World, the game launches Spring 2019. Yoshi's Crafted World will allow players to join up with a friend, which is a nice touch; and it also lets players walk backward, practically a sin for side-scrolling platformers. Other than that, Yoshi’s new adventure seems to be much akin to his previous one, except much, much glossier. Which should be alright. So, the game is a side-scrollingplatformer where 3D characters are moved on a 2D plane. Unlike most side-scrolling games, though, Yoshi's Crafted World allows the player to view the game from two opposite viewpoints, allowing the camera to "flip sides" to see behind objects. The viewpoint is changed when the player has the Yoshi character stomp on the ground. Outside of this new mechanic, the game plays similar to prior Yoshi games, where the player may use Yoshi's tongue to eat enemies or other objects, turn them into eggs, and throw them outwardly into the level. The game will feature a two-player multiplayer mode, where each player maneuvers their own Yoshi through the game's levels Screenshots: Japanese debut trailer:

    Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

    New thread, to avoid mega-threads... A baffled Dinovaldo Glavenus, yesterday. Capcom recently announced Monster Hunter X (that's "cross"), an upcoming 3DS title that uses the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate engine and has flashy moves similar to the Frontier games. Since then, they’ve shared additional information on the game. The plans for Monster Hunter X began sometime around the production of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Capcom wanted to bring out more of a “festive” feeling that’s not in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, so they decided to bring back villages from past titles, and add four main monsters, instead of the usual one-per-title. Monster Hunter X is being developed with the concept of having your very own hunt that comes from the two features of “Hunting Maneuvers X Hunting Style”. Hunters will have access to new special moves and actions that look pretty flashy. Capcom say that these features will be the main attraction of Monster Hunter X. “Hunting Maneuvers” (or Arts) are special moves that range from being able to perform a powerful attack to a monster, to providing yourself with enhancements or buffs, and healing other nearby Hunters. “Hunting Style” is another feature that Monster Hunter X is adding to the game, that lets you turn moments of danger into stylish actions. This feature plays a big part in letting players hunt with their very own style. Capcom have prepared numerous "Hunting Arts" for each weapon, but there are also some “basic Hunting Arts” that can be used with any weapon, and you’ll get to choose from them all. This time around, the main village of Monster Hunter is called Verna Village. And the game will also feature various villages from past Monster Hunter titles, including Yukumo Village from Monster Hunter Portable 3rd (sweet!). While most Monster Hunter games have one flagship monster on the covers, it looks like Monster Hunter X will have four, as the ones shown in the above image are marked as the “four major main monsters”. The four main monsters won’t simply appear over time as you advance through the game with one being stronger than the other, but they’re actually all along the same rank. They’re called the “Elite Four” among the developers. They are Gammoth ( a fanged beast), the rather cool Glavenus (a brute wyvern), Astalos (a flying wyvern), and a still unnamed leviathan-type.

    Wasteland 2 - Director's Cut

    Latest update 30/3: Fargo has announced that when/if they get to 2,1 million, Chris Avellone and Obsidian will join the project!!! Update 15/3: Funding goal ($900,000) achieved and will continue to grow until the funding ends, April 17. So it's actually happening: we're getting Wasteland 2, a proper old-school isometric RPG, funded only by the fans, which means no meddling from publishers eager to please the lowest common denominator. The game is currently planned for release in October 2013. Original post: If you haven't heard yet, Brian Fargo and Inxile entertainment are planning on making a sequel to Wasteland, to be funded entirely through the Kickstarter website. Fargo has been wanting to make a sequel for 20 years but had no luck in securing publisher funding. But Tim Schafer's recent success with fund-raising for an old-school adventure game has inspired Fargo to go for the same approach. Here's what he told NMA about the lack of interest from publishers, shortly after the release of Fallout 3: So they already have some design and story material in place from then, but right now the game's future depends on whether they can achieve the same success as Schafer with the Kickstarter funding. UPDATE 13/3: Funding has begun on Kickstarter: http://www.kickstart...ile/wasteland-2 Be sure to check out this introduction video, which is both funny and informative (if you're unfamiliar with Wasteland and/or Fargo): From the Kickstarter page: Pledging $15 will get you a digital copy of the game, but If you pledge $50, you will get a full large boxed copy of the game, complete with worn cloth map and old school instruction book! However, you must add $15 to that for overseas shipping! (cheers Gerbik for this bit of info) And I see someone coughed up with $5,000 to get a statue of himself built in the game Official website. UPDATE 15/3: Funding goal of $900,000 - the highest ever on Kickstarter - achieved in just 2 days! Planned release in October next year.

    Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

    It's a coming! Without the limitations of Flash I think it'll be amazing! Looks like they had fun making the teaser.

    Celeste

    Looks utterly amazing: It's got a little bits of Super Meat Boy, VVVVV, N++, Escape Goat, and of course Towerfall movement set and midair dash. Single player platformer adventures are still probably my favourite genre, and from the amount I played the single player challenges in Towerfall I trust that this will be another title to look out for. Release later this year.
  21. Announced for PS4 and 3DS! Details Two different games but with the same story Both games slated for 2016 release to coincide with series 30th anniversary. The two games will still have the same core staff working on them. PS4 version is developed with the assistance of Orca. 3DS version is developed with the assistance of Toy Logic. 3DS Version presents a classic 2D Sprite style on the bottom screen, 3D view on the top. 3DS version will have 2D sprite battles + random battles when playing with the D-Pad and 3D battles when playing with the circle-pad. NX version is a possibility - Additionally, we are also considering launching on Nintendos in development NX platform. First footage (from the 1hr10min mark) https://youtu.be/5Kgmb_k3q5U Western release? September 14 - http://www.hardcoregamer.com/2014/09/06/dragon-quest-producers-talk-nintendo-mobile-whats-next-for-series/102483/ [Miyake] "Were pretty sure that Dragon Quest XI will see some sort of western release. We would have loved to have released X as well, but in that case because its an MMO the operation part of it is very difficult to manage between regions. But yes, were hoping XI will be available in the western regions." July 15 - http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2015-07-28-dragon-quest-11-is-coming-to-3ds-and-playstation-4-and-the-nx We don't have a concrete plan at the moment," it reads. "However, we will consider it as we've done in the past for other Dragon Quest titles. We don't have further information to share at the moment."
  22. The audio design for this is shaping up to be excellent. I think I'm looking forward to the music more than the actual game... Some golden-oldies.. Roll on Friday!
