Looks like no Direct, this week at least. Surely they’d save the story trailer and date for Yoshi for that?

Have you played Flower, Sun, and Rain? That's the closest other game I've played to Deadly Premonition

I keep meaning to pick that up. Is the DS version acceptable, or is it the PS2 version that draws the (polarized) praise? I do not have access to a PS2 alas.

I've only played the DS version so can't compare, but from what I've read the main difference is the graphical downgrade for DS (which was never an issue for me). The localisation (as somewhere here pointed out recently) was redone for the later US release on DS, so I don't know which is considered "best" (or if the European English is the same as the original PS2 game)

Thanks again. It seems like its dirt cheap at CEX (£4 delivered), so might as well take a punt!

It appears that Nintendo is trying to make a bit of a push towards customers downloading games rather than choosing to get a cartridge version.

Let's Go had three purchase options for gamers in Japan; the boxed cart version, the download version... and a boxed download version (a case with a download code in it!). All three options share the same price. This approach is to be replicated for the upcoming Yoshi's Crafted World, whilst for Travis Strikes Back only the Japan Nintendo Store will offer a boxed cart version; other stores will have a boxed download version and then the download version will be on offer through the eShop.

It feels like the move away from physical media is rapidly speeding up, even for Nintendo systems.

I'm not really arsed about having physical games for my PS4 now that I've got all the space in the universe on my external HDD, but I do really like having my Switch cartridges all lined up in my carry case, there's something nice and tactile about them. Quite irrational, I'm sure, but I just likes what I likes!

I find I play physical games much less, both on PS4 and Switch. It's a laziness thing. I like being able to flick through my library on-screen and decide what to play. I have Odyssey, Mario Kart and Mario Rabbids on cartridge and I wish they were all digital.

Yeah, on PS4 I've been totes digital for a few years now. On Switch I like the carts but recently I've started going for downloads.

I like seeing cases on the shelf but I kind a prefer the convenience (and, on PS4, less noise) of download versions.

Nah, physical carts all the way.

There's a tactility to physical media that digital can't recreate. There is also a mental commitment. The convenience of easily switching between digital games is also a source of anxiety and indecision over what to play. With physical media you commit to a game to play when you load it in.

It's why I prefer watching DVDs or Blu-rays to Netflix - with Netflix I can easily spend 15 minutes just scrolling through the library. Even if I spend time browsing a physical collection deciding what to watch (or play), that's a more enjoyable experience as I'm navigating a bounded, physical space of my own order and creation.

That's a good point, Orange. I love perusing my physical games and, yeah, scrolling through a digital collection isn't quite the same experience. Even so, the loss of manuals and rise of updates means that the physical experience isn't quite what it used to be. But - and I never would have thought I'd say this a few years back - I think I'm ready for a download-only console now. Pricing and monopolisation fears remain, though.

But, specifically for Switch, I do still love the cases!

I like to have physical everything for my favourite things, my favourite games, movies, albums and books are dotted along a book shelf unit in the living room for all to see and browse.

The only things I bother with digitally are things I don't care too much about like indie games or my Spotify playlist.

This *incred* StarFox artwork by WellsIllustrate is gonna be on display as part of an exhibition in Los Angeles. Truly awesome, and you can check out more pieces from the exhibition in this Nintendo Life article.

Seen a physical copy of Shaq Fu for £13.99, bit tempted to get it.
Is it that awful?

It's better than Mother Russia Bleeds but worse than Streets of Rage II.

To be fair, most games ever made are worse than Streets of Rage II :wub:

Have you played Streets of Red? That's my recommended Switch beat-em-up
