Town is going to be an eShop only game. And an interesting one at that, but I can't imagine it has too much in the way of resources allocated to it so I wouldn't expect it offer clues to how Pokemon will look.

I'll be surprised if they're not using the same engine as Town for the new Pokemon game tbh.



So many off those animations look like they're from a Pokemon game.

That’s the first time I’ve watched that trailer in ages, I thought it looked loads worse graphically from what I remember, a slightly nicer/more polished version of that could look very nice in my opinion.

I like the look of TOWN, looks like it could be an interesting side project for GF.

Picked up Windjammers today in the sale and just played some multiplayer games in tabletop mode. It’s a lot of fun, it’s like air hockey down the arcades.

If nobody else posts in this thread for several days, could we get them done for multiposting?

Anybody know if there is a particular trick to getting the Switch to connect via ethernet? Either I'm doing something wrong of the Switch is not compatible with my adapter - in which case is there a recommended one that I can pick up? I see there is an official one but that comes with the Official Nintendo Seal of Overpricing!

I just use a regular one from Maplin, so I don't think you specifically need an official one. I don't remember any particular problems or tricks when I plugged it in. I sometimes have to run the connection test if I unplug it from the dock to make it recognise it again. Don't know if that helps.?

I've tried the connection test with no joy sadly. I suspect I just have an adapter that doesn't play nicely with the Switch - I get no link light when it's connected so I think it simply doesn't recognise the connection.

It was a cheap adapter I bought years back so my Chromecast could use a wired connection as the WiFi reception on that was terrible, but I was hoping it would work on the Switch as well since the TV is now in a bit of a WiFi blackspot in our new setup.

I’ve got the HDE one which works fine, but I think that might be one of the overly expensive ones you’re referring to. I know that you’re not the only person on the web to have complained that their LAN adapter doesn’t work with the Switch: think it needs to be a Nintendo-‘permitted’ one.

Sucks to hear that your current adapter doesn't seem to be working, Jenuall!

If you need a cheap alternative to the official one, I bought the cheapest Amazon Basic USB 3.0 adapter and it worked fine -

Thanks for the input folks, it's frustrating that the Switch seems to be a bit picky about what it will talk to but there you go.

Having looked back over my Amazon order history it looks like I bought another adapter a while back (which probably didn't work with the Chromecast!) so I'm going to try and find that one and give it a try, and if that doesn't work I'll grab that Amazon one cheers Heskimo!

That's the one I had with my previous Switch which worked fine, did buy one before that which was like yours and wouldn't work.

strawberry floating hell, that final boss of the "Back to Origins" levels in Rayman :dread: I think I'm done with this now. It's had a good run.

I try not to get too mixed in with rumours but the ones that have been circulating for this supposed upcoming direct have me a bit excited.

Yeah I suspect it’ll get announced tomorrow if it is indeed on Wednesday, or they could just drop it on YouTube. Still wouldn’t surprise me if these latest rumours are a load of rubbish again though.
