Topics I've Started


Today, 08:30 AM

Kind of a general topic, but personally I really only have experience in Switch games so..


A bunch of Switch titles have a Ranked online option and I'm really enjoying playing each of em. 


Splatoon 2 (currently hovering around C rank, second from the bottom) 


Pokken Tournament DX (I think like E3.. very low, and only a 29% win ratio, would be easier if I changed to another main my DAMN I love Scizor) 


ARMS (rank 5 out of a max 15) 


It can be heart-breaking losing rank, particularity since the WiFi is quite weak on my Switch and on the odd occasion I get a communication error and get d/c'd + lose rank. 


Note: I am by no means highly ranked in any of these games, maybe if I were to persevere with just one I'd climb the ranks a little higher, but I just find the added competitive aspect just that little bit more rewarding. 


MK8DX also has a ranked mode but I've barely touched the game. 


Anyone else frequent this mode in your chosen game(s)? 

Stardew Valley

Launches on Switch this Friday, $17.99 on the nz eshop.

Super Mario Odyssey

With less than a month to go, time to thread up. 





I've not watched a lot of vids, certainly not extended playthroughs, but short previews like this are perfect. The feedback so far has been phenomenal; gameplay and exploration harking back to Galaxy, and freedom and experimentation akin to Breath of the Wild. 


Release date is 27th Oct.


So who's grabbing, and from where? I'm preordering for Day 1, at this stage most likely from Mighty Ape. 


2DS XL announced

28 April 2017 - 01:48 PM

Ok so this kinda came outta nowhere!




Good to see it has added grunt that the 3DS XL has so newer games run better (I understand Pokemon SuMo runs terrible on the old 3DS / 2DS)
