#763779 Nintendo NX now Nintendo Switch

Posted by drunk_monk on 16 August 2017 - 12:02 PM

Pretty much everything CZK just said.

Any game I can play on Switch I likely will as it's a gorgeous screen and just wonderful to play on.

If you don't have a U then BOTW, Mario Kart and Pollen coming. If you do then dunno. Look at the library and decide if it's worth waiting.

HAHA You love making new threads palmania.


40/40 is crazy!  I have bought the 2 3DS games so they are on my to play list, so will have to smash them out before release as this seems too good to be true.

#762919 EU PSN dilemma, help a brother out

Posted by drunk_monk on 03 August 2017 - 01:12 PM

Damn that sucks, never had an EU code not work for me.


The region locking will be determined by the game manufacturer at a reasonable guess, which sucks.  It's likely to stop people buying it cheaper elsewhere and selling en masse, it sucks but it is what it is.  We are just at the wrong ass hole of the world.


I doubt PS support will be able to help but you could super politely appeal to the game devs via PM on twitter or something.

#762905 EU PSN dilemma, help a brother out

Posted by drunk_monk on 03 August 2017 - 10:51 AM

Wait is it PSN vouchers Or internal game unlocks? Because of they're internal then PSN will have nothing to do with it so you'll need to find out from the games side of things.

If they are PSN vouchers then they are DLC.

BUT I thought EU PSN codes work on NZ. Top ups like 5 buck vouchers won't but I'm pretty sure content codes worked.

Have you tried it?

If it doesn't work why not make an EU account and of you have to at it on that account, play it on that account?

#762504 How long Nintendo Switch will be last?

Posted by drunk_monk on 28 July 2017 - 11:40 AM

There's a lot there I'd you're interested in it. Of you're not that's fine.

The problem is priorities. You prefer the better version of games like I Am Satsuna the that will rule out multiplatform games. For me the portability means I will happily take a slightly cut back or graphically inferior version to be able to smash it anywhere.

As I say there is a lot of content there and a lot coming, including in the picture you've put in the thread. If your taste is super specific and none of that appeals to you then that's just unfortunate.

#761990 VIP Code Exchange

Posted by drunk_monk on 20 July 2017 - 03:33 PM

Geez calm your farm guys. I believe the idea was for XBox gamers and ps gamers to exchange their codes so they got double the prize for the one console they had etc.

Most people just give the stuff away because they got it free here and spread the love but I suppose each to their own.

But if I was looking to exchange for something other than the VIP codes I'd be looking in the trade section.

#761901 Horizon & Zelda - Love you both

How awesome would playing these for the first time again be?

#761723 Horizon & Zelda - Love you both

Posted by drunk_monk on 18 July 2017 - 01:09 PM

Between the two I would say my favorite is Horizon, but these are easily the two best game I have played this year, potentially ever.


BotW is my first Zelda, and I loved the living hell out of it.  Im genuinely worried that if my Switch dies I will lose the save.  I also bought all the Zelda Amiibo I could find, including importing some from Aus, and have the champions preordered because I loved this game so much.  Pre-patch it was flawed so criticisms are very valid, but I loved it.


HZD had me in love with the world, the story, and Aloy, I also didn't hate the name as much as others.  That's the first game that Is pent 40+ hours in and at the end, wished there was more content to buy immediately.  I just love, love, loved it.  Cant rant about HZD enough.  Bring on the DLC.

#761505 3DS: Games

Posted by drunk_monk on 16 July 2017 - 07:22 AM

I hate buying 3DS Games on the eshop as it's paired to the console not the user but have done once or twice.

That's interesting. I wonder why Nintendo opted to a model like that? Seems strange that you can't carry your purchases with you. I guess they expect you to buy a 3DS and never on-sell it?

That being said, I don't understand why the saves are stored on the cart. Nintendo methodology on things is strange. I guess that's why their games are always fun?

I'm guessing it's their crap infrastructure. It may be easier to pair a purchase with a hardware ID.

The saves on the cart were weird, but the switch is stuck between the two as you can't backup saves like the 3DS but save on the hardware like a normal machine, which is worse as if my Switch dues I'll lose my Zelda save.

Ha that's an interesting thought. Not worrying about infrastructure allows them to make/fund great games.

Personally I used the 3DS as a pokemon machine for years and that was all. Buy I played fire emblem awakening the other week and was in love with it so now I'm waiting for my copy of the new one to arrive.
