  1. Don't buy the Switch version, controller lag is terrible, I had to delete it. Has anyone tried another console version?

    Ok, who be playing this and what's your highest placing? I managed to get to 6th on second go but haven't got anywhere close to that after. That was before I knew there was any strategy with targeting Attackers, KOs, Badges or whatever the other thing is.

    Thinking About Selling Mega Drive Stuff

    I might be interested. I'm thinking of selling a few things at the moment as well and keep meaning to put a list together. Have been saving up boxes and stuff from deliveries.

    What, there was no spelling mistake
  5. This came out yesterday having been out in Japan for a few weeks. M2 are doing their usual nice job with their 3DS and now Switch ports. This has two versions, old and new though I haven't worked out what the differences are. There's remixed music from the Master System version of this as well as the music they added to the 3DS version.

    So... I keep starting this and not getting through it for some reason. Who has seen it, what did you think to the idea of choose your own adventure? Am I being cool and edgy calling this a game?

    Mass Effect 3

    I didnt notice anything, was this on standard Bone or an X? Yeah my games time is severely curtailed. I've been getting the odd session when my 19 month old is asleep in the day, but it's mainly in evening, sometimes until late. Man, I wonder what my 2012 self earlier in this thread would say...

    Mass Effect 3

    I read our thread yesterday and listened to podcasts at the time. It can only be let down to go so quickly in to even a mediocre game.

    Mass Effect 3

    So whilst others were looking forward to new 'massive game' Red Dead Redemption, 2 I've been back to replay the Mass Effect series over the last few months - maybe 40-50 hours in each game. Originally got in to it after Alex & Vinny stated playing though this for Mass Alex on GiantBomb and like many others was inspired to play along - I soon found myself playing way past where they were up to, partly to avoid spoilers but also because it's just so damn good. This is the first time I've been back to play this since finishing ME3 (April 10th 2012 according to this thread). Playing them back to back has been an amazing ride. It's been so long that I'd forgotten the majority of the story, so it was like playing through them as new games and this time I just bought ALL of the DLC so there was plenty of genuinely new stuff too. I used to prefer ME2, but I think the passage of time and playing them together gives a bit more objectivity (we are years past the ending controversy)... so now I think 3 is the best, mainly due to the refined combat and also some of the incredible moments in the game. I was enjoying each game so much that I tried to do and see as MUCH as possible, not because to hit a completion number but because it's just so fucking good - trying to absorb as much of it as possible. This time I went with a female Shepard and holy cow, Jennifer Hale's performance is incredible. As I came towards finishing 2 and same with 3, I was genuinely feeling sad that this would be the last time for several more years that I'd play this (I know I can play anytime, but realistically). Maybe I'm just a soft shite now I have a kid but I shed a tear on two occasions. Endings wise, ultimately I ended up going with Synthesis rather than Control or Destroy. I think I went with destroy originally and wanted to try something different. Synthesis is a genuinely happy ending, resolving the reaper (and synthetics vs organics) problem altogether and doesn't result in lots of death. Also, the changes made improve the ending were definitely good. So what they hell do I play now? There's nothing really like this... I Iove the futuristic science fiction but not interested in medieval fantasy style. A really nicely improved version of Phantasy Star just came out on the Switch for the cost of a couple of beers so maybe I try that, they made an auto-mapping system and a nuber of other quality of life improvements!

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch) Shaq-Fu A Legend Reborn (Switch) ShantaeHalf Genie Hero (Switch) Mass Effect (360) MassEffect 2 (360) Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (3DS) So this has been in my 3DS for months and have been playing it off and on. I love the two component series so bringing the two together was great. It starts off alternating between the two styles and then starts to mess with it towards the end. This is one of the longer games in either series, I clocked up over 34 hours on my save. At one point near the end I was annoyed with the story but it managed to redeem itself. Roll on more PL and PW games!

    Happy Christmas!

    Hope everyone has a good few days, chance to relax etc. What's everyone up to? My lad is 19 months now so is enjoying new toys without being a little turd (this is our last Christmas before he knows what what it is!). Had dinner at my wife's mums. Visiting family in a few days. My bro/sis in law get me games stuff but my mother in law was very accommodating and bought me the Taiko no Tatsujin set on Switch so I will have a crack at that later.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch) Shaq-Fu A Legend Reborn (Switch) Shantae: Half Genie Hero (Switch) Mass Effect (360) So I started playing this after watching the Alex and Vinny from Giantbomb play it and was reminded how awesome this is. I had forgotten how epic this series is, for me the stand out story moments for me are the Sovereign reveal on Virmire (my god that voice) and talking with Vigil on Ilos. I played on an Xbox One X so it's nicely upscaled but there's great mode for the PC too of course.
