I'll be interested to hear if you think it holds up as you get further in. I quite liked it at the beginning too but the levels get so sprawling and directionless I just started finding it a chore. It's incredible how compact and dense the levels in Odyssey are by comparison.

 

Yeah, I’m not expecting it to get anywhere near the dizzy heights of Super Mario Odyssey. I didn’t enjoy any of it on the PS4 though, but I’m finding it a lot more palatable on the smaller screen. Maybe the levels don’t seem as big on the handheld, or because I have the benefit of putting it into standby whenever I fancy.

Besides Project Octopath 2018 is looking like 'The Year of the Ports', for me at least.

Street Fighter, Bayonetta, rumours of Burnout Paradise. All good.

 

Sorry, Burnout Paradise? An EA game? One worth buying?

I bought Yooka-Laylee last night from the South African store (it was £27ish). I’m happy to say it continues the tradition of games just being better to play on the Switch, as I’m enjoying it so far - a lot more than I did on PS4. It just suits a handheld much better. I’m also very happy about the new ‘short speech’ option as the voices made me want to kill things.


Nintendo Life are incredibly positive in their review.

 

Quote

All told, Yooka-Laylee is a worthy modern tribute to the collectathons of yore, and it is highly recommended for Switch owners. This feels like a game that belongs in 1996, but with all the quality improvements of a game made in 2017, making for an excellent blend of new and old. Though it can be a little uneven at times, the game as a whole manages to succesfully achieve its goals.
 

Do yourself a favour and give this one a go; it may not have been too well received to begin with, but Playtonic has polished it up quite nicely; it is a worthy addition to the Switch library.

Christian Donlan's review of this made me want it. Looks like a cross between The Witness and Yellow.

it being free on PS+ was the bargain of the century, but £11.28 is a close second.

 

Did anyone else get Human Fall Flat? it looks a bit like Grow Home

 

Another email from Nintendo saying I have points that are going to expire. Then when I log on to their website everything you can buy with them is crossed out? FFS Ninty get it together.

If I buy a second switch can I download all my current digital games onto it?  I am thinking about taking back the DSXL I got my daughter and just getting her a switch instead as she is never off it, got a feeling the DS will never be used.  Ideally I want to share all the games I have already, and also be able to play together on rocket league etc?

 

Would that work?

Yes and No.

 

You can transfer everything from your current Switch to a new one, but it will *transfer* so you won't end up with the content on two machines no. Your account (and the content tied to it) can only be active on one Switch at a time.

Thats rubbish :(  

 

Do I need to download again each time, or is ok as long as we arent playing the machine at the same time?

You need to do a full transfer from one to the other each time.

Oh well, DSXL for her then!  Annoying I hadnt foreseen this and went with physicla copies that could be easily shared between machines.

Damn the Yooka Laylee port is pretty top notch. Looks great in portable mode. DF analysis of it shows that quite a bit of care and attention was put into it, altered settings, reworked geometry etc. Not a quick job by any means.
