Man, I know it's like another Wii U port but Mario Kart 8 works really well on the Switch. Not sure if I like the fact that *everyone's* unlocked from the start rather than having to win a cup to get a random character, but it's kinda nice to have the full roster without having to win your way through all the koopalings before you get someone you actually like. Think you really need the joycon straps with the shoulder buttons for local multiplayer, though. You'll get proper hand cramp bending your fingers around to reach them without the strap :slol:

EDIT: If you've got two power-ups banked, can you press a button to swap the backup out to be the primary power or do you have to use the first one before you can use the second?

No, annoyingly so, particularly when it always gives you a golden mushroom followed by a bullet bill and never the other way round

What do you think this is, double dash?

My problem is that I play my Switch in public and in view of my housemates

There is a level of embarrassment I won't stoop to

I got it as a Christmas present, meaning that I was playing it in front of my family.

There was a lot of explanation required.

My god does it make the Switch feel more comfortable in handheld mode. Had a quick go of Flinthook with it and it and my hands felt less cramped, i’ll see how it works over a longer play session over the weekend.


Nice! I just ordered one.

Yeah I absolutely do not play Xenoblade if I know anyone else is going to be in the room! :slol:

The outfits are ridiculous but, for the most part, they don't obsess over them in the way that some anime does . There are a few occasions where they deliberately choose a camera angle to get some massive boobs on screen, and there are some ridiculous poses that a few of the blades can use at times, but for the most part it's just a "normal" looking game where some of the characters happen to be wearing ridiculous outfits.

The actual game is strawberry floating sublime though, easily up there with BOTW and Odyssey for me.

What a week! The Octopath Traveler package is gorgeous, sturdy too. I'm surprised at the reviews for Shining Resonance Refrain (also a nice package; not quite what was advertised though), it's currently hovering at 71 on Metacritic, and honestly I expected lower. I can't wait to finally try it, but I'll have to wait, because nothing is getting in the way of Octopath.

That special edition does look really nice, sadly it's getting to the point where I opt for the non special edition as they take up so much less space. Likewise my copy turned up today, can't wait to start it over the weekend.

I think it's a decent size for a LE, it'll fit on my shelving unit at least, which the likes of the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 LE, and Fire Emblem Echoes LE don't. :x I didn't get it, but the BotW LE looks insanely huge too. I hope Fire Emblem Switch's LE will be comparable to Octopath's.

Your image isn't working for me, Baka, but - holy heck. :shock: That is much more of a step up than I expected.

I get the feeling that's what people want the Pokémon games to look like on Switch, which I'd be with fine with as it looks rather nice!
