  1. So this seemed as impenetrable as always for newcomers, my 9 year old daughter was keen to try it after the amount of promotion its had on CBBC etc but from 9:01 everyone seemed to have better weapons somehow and we couldn’t last for more than 10 seconds at time against seasoned players. I get that it’s a fresh start with the match making but it needs to do a better job of welcoming brand new young players rather than appealing to the same obsessive elite players from previous games I’ve always like the idea of this game and own both Splatoon 1 and 2 but it’s just impossible for new players to get into
  2. Yeah me too, very odd as I’m normally the same as everyone else’s until today
  3. Anyone with kids (or even those without) I recommend Making Fun - Jimmy Diresta and 4 of his mates get challenged by kids to build their weird inventions - like taco spitting dinosaurs & guitar boats Good mix of interesting building stuff and humour - the group are all really likeable characters and the things they build end up really good, my family all loved it and sad we finished them all - hopefully Netflix give them a second series
  4. Ffs My WiiU automatically updated to 5.5.5 and now I can’t run RetroArch or Nintendont, get a 199-9999 error Have noticed the CBHC isn’t running on boot up anymore which I believe just runs the Haxchii automatically, but I don’t have a Haxchii icon to run it manually instead Very new to all this Have I borked it all? EDIT: doesn’t matter sorted it now, pressed the “Do Not Touch” icon to manually boot HaxChi
  5. So I’ve just bought a Wii U which is hacked, I know little about this scene but when it books up it mentions CBHC and it has WUP Installer GX2 tucked away in a safe folder, the guy I bought it from told me not to touch that Its got RetroArch installed which a tonne of GBA, SNES and MD games Am I OK to go online with the machine and use it as normal and use the eShop and everything without risk of bricking it? Can I do system updates? Reading online says it should be safe but just nervous

  7. I’ve ordered an AV cable which should come tomorrow so we’ll see Yeah pictures don’t really show it, basically on the boot screen the blue dot & spiral animation is a yellow white colour with only little patches of blue, and in second pic the top section is the same yellow Fingers crossed the new cable sorts it and I can start building up a collection again
  8. Have dug my remaining gaming collection out of the garage to setup a little games room, and after crying for days at the amount of stuff I’ve traded in for pennies over the years I plugged in my Dreamcast for the first time in 15 years to be amazed it still works However the picture is partially washed out looking like the below. It’s just with the standard RF cable. Is this likely to be a fault with the machine, or cable? I haven’t got a controller or game to get past this point
  9. Not for their theme tunes - which are also great - but I loved these growing up
  10. I was naively hoping it would be a bit like Mario Maker where you can see a rotating selection of islands to visit, including stuff like Nintendo created or specially themed ones, maybe even with rating systems etc As much as I put tonnes of hours into it and loved it, Nintendo have been incredibly lazy with so many missed opportunities to draw people back in who inevitably drop off after the first few months (like me). Decent events, new items (how have they not updated the nook miles item list yet?), interesting features etc.
  11. Anyone got anything remotely decent over 100? Ive given up on the turnip game but my Mrs and daughter have a few to sell but only 60 on ours Thanks
  12. Are the villager relationships individual to each player profile or only based the on the lead player? Im the lead player and don’t really interact with other villagers but my wife is giving them all gifts every day but nothing really seems to be changing, no quests to catch bugs or fish etc, so wondering if it’s my fault?
  13. Thanks Lighthouse - white & blue Climbing frame - red & yellow Vending machines - both black Any good? Will post any to you
  14. Hi, let me know if you open and will pop over, what do you need in return? Thanks
  15. Thanks, you still open, not finding you? No probs if not, can try another time thanks
  16. Does anyone have 1 spare large star fragment and 3 old tyres I could buy? Had a good run on Celeste items lately so building a space room in my house but just need these 3 last bits Let me know how much £ or anything else you’d like in return Thanks
  17. Id like to visit for that price if possible? Thanks
  18. Don’t worry about it thanks, happy to finally spend some Miles that doesn’t involve repeatedly requesting bell tickets one at a time
  19. I have a green so will send it to you shortly
  20. Open now if you’re around, will be away putting kids to bed Nothing to water though thanks jamesh - Ellijess
  21. Maybe a stupid question but can never tell with Nintendo and online so thought I’d ask So at the moment it’s just me who has an online account, but my wife and daughters all share the same island on 4 profiles So at the moment any island travelling is only on mine, and I’m the lead player on the island My daughter now wants to be able to visit her friend, so if I just upgrade to family membership can she then visit islands and have people visit our island independently of me? Thanks
  22. Does anyone else have a 50” wall mounted TV which switches off on its own every time you leave the house? Mine does, my small wall mounted one and big standing one stay on fine but the big wall mounted one switches off - I have a table with stuff on underneath so if I want it back on I have to move all the stuff underneath out of the way each time Annoying bug or another usual obscure Animal Crossing intentional thing?
