Errkal bringing the burn :lol: .

The thing is I am seriously thinking about holding off from the game at the moment. I need to “get real” as I have barely played Mario 64, Mario Galaxy, 3D World etc so there seems little point in splashing out on Odyssey until I have played them. We’ll see.

Odds are you will never play the old ones, see OOT for details, why not wipe the slate clean as it were and start from Odyssey playing the game and not getting new gooseberry fool until it is done with as odd are going back to old stuff isn't going to happen with the lore of the new.

True, Errkal. I don’t like the idea of admitting to myself that I’m not gonna go back and play some of the older games but, realistically, I’m not.

If you dont want to cut them completely you could just deprioritise them, so do Odyssey as the latest, once done go back and do one of the older ones, when a new one comes jump to the and when thats done pick an older one, that way you are't spending years making your list longer and you get to the player the newers stuff as it comes out and fill in the historical as and when as backlog.

They're always going to be amazing games Jawa, they can be played at any time in any order and you'll enjoy them just as much. Get odysee and enjoy being part of the buzz along with everyone else.

Guys, yeah, I do want to be involved in the launch buzz really. I will probably get it, play the opening thirty minutes and then keep it for returning to “one day”. Press A to add to backlog etc.

Jawa mate, start properly playing Breath of the Wild now and you'll be done with it just around when Odyssey comes out. It'll be a brilliant bit of gaming for you.

At the mo I’m starting a phase of full Pro Evo addiction, Karl... not much else is gonna get a look-in :lol: . Possibly a wee bit of Lego Worlds to chill with.

Oh, and I believe you’re proudly donning a new avatar image :toot: . What character is it?

If I wasn't getting it from Tesco for £11.50 thanks to Clubcard points I'd be all over the digital version. If they were the same bloody price of have all mine digital.

That will do me just fine, like Zelda BOTW. I simply cannot wait for this and the Champions DLC for Zelda!

Where's the best place for pre-ordering for delivery on the day?

I usually order from ShopTo as they always get games to me on time... and often earlier.

Amazon are selling the digital version of the game for the same price as the physical (£41.99 or £39.99 if you have Prime).

No need to wait for delivery and always have the game available to play.

Obviously you lose the ability to trade in and there are some other draw backs, but I think I'm going to switch to digital for this game.

Anyone know what the download size is going to be on this? I prefer going digital but have terrible internet so can't be dealing with anything too big otherwise I'm looking at multiple days to download! :cry:
