  1. You are my brother! I played about 3 hours, which I did enjoy, but then moved on to whatever-the-hell-else-I-decided-to-play-instead. Take comfort in the fact you're not alone, and it's probably more than just Nintendo doing it to you.
  2. "Input lag" exists on every controller for every system, even your mouse+keyboard on your PC. This is just an inescapable consequence of those bloody annoying laws of physics that govern the universe we live in. I have no idea what anybody else considers acceptable, normal, or horrendous. What I do know is that feels like I'm playing videogames on a console. 130 ms is ... what, 6-7 frames? If you're routinely reacting faster than that to on-screen prompts, then you'll most likely notice and care. Meanwhile, we mere humans will continue to just not see any problem.
  3. It's £34.99. That gets you 4 curated collections, cloud saves, online play, Tetris 99, Pacman 99, and the Animal Crossing DLC. And that's just today, we already know that there will be more N64 games added. Is it value-for-money? You decide. But is it £60 for N64 emulation? No, stop saying it is.
  4. I never played Mario Tennis without having at least 2 other players around, so was surprised when Luigi absolutely battered me in an exhibition match. My N64 was basically a permanent multiplayer machine.
  5. I have mine. The email said it would be 3 or 4 days, but the actual tracking link showed Next Day, and Steve from DPD was here about 1:30-ish. A Facebook friend of mine is in the same boat as you, though. Sadly, Nintendo support is SERCO, even though stock comes from The Hut Group, so they will most likely tell you they can't check up on it for 72 hours.
  6. Sin & Punishment alone makes the expansion worth every penny. Hoping they also add Body Harvest along the way
  7. Not necessarily his WiFi, actually. Presuming the game, which contains 0 netcode, is just syncing between all online consoles. Any of them could be causing the judder. I wish more people realised how shit WiFi is.
  8. https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/sport/football/man-united-player-ratings-liverpool-21955785
  9. The only surprise in that match was how close the scoreline was.
  10. Salah scores goals. Scholes sucks toes.
  11. Hoping this gets as big as it might do!
  12. Looks like Klopp wants this one done and dusted by half-time! Still showing them a little too much respect, in my opinion, but maybe I'm underestimating how much of an attacking threat Milner carries these days?
  13. Ugh. There might be a good game in here, but it seems determined to make me hate everything about it before revealing any actual joy that it might contain. I got an hour through before quitting, and during that time I was far more annoyed than entertained. From the endless hurling of new information, through the awful personalities, and the stupid teleportation mid-cutscene, it's a very jarring experience. It's like there's a fear of letting the player breathe. At one point I somehow missed a checkpoint and had to backtrack while on the Snowmobile I had been given to allow exploration... What it needs is to respect the player more, and not just assume that everyone's a 12-year old with ADHD. Give me a bike, let me mess about on it a bit, show me a race and then leave me the hell alone to work stuff out. Here, when what I wanted to do was ride over there, I was suddenly flying face-first into the floor. I would much rather run out of time having not seen everything than be force-fed to this degree. And it's a shame, because 1st-person downhill biking was pretty good. Such a pity I have to fight through so much other crap. It is SO Ubisoft! Everything that pulls me away from AAA games is thrown at you, and piled on top of you, because "content" is more important than "experience." I'll be avoiding it.
  14. Let's do them mighty at Anfield, and then roll over for Porto! Bunch of twats, absolutely loved beating them.
  15. Peter Walton is such a bellend. Tying himself in knots to agree with the on-field ref who then makes the correct call!
  16. And now we need to keep ball for 15 minutes.
  17. Athletico absolutely reverting to type, here. Someone does this in a Premier League match and he's in the stands. European refs allowing it pisses me off no end.
  18. If nothing else, this group is definitely showing how good the ESL would have been. This is an utter madness!
  19. Oddly, there are both in the Weekly time trial, but not in this. Bit of a strange oversight, in my opinion.
  20. 34.014, which means nothing here but is now a good 3 seconds ahead of my son. I can't quite work out why going wide-right on the final straight adds time, surely it's adding distance? Whoever started this needs to find Jesus.
  21. Never let it be said that I fear last place! I fully intend to improve, but let me post my ONLY completed lap time of 44.053 for now. Currently taking turns with my son, and he's just as terrible as me ... EDIT: 38.846 now, which included a 1.5 time penalty for adding distance on the final straight! This game needs a handbrake. On Xbox.
