  1. That’s the most TNG of the TNG films, for at least getting the feel of the series tonally correct, even if it’s essentially just an extended bigger-budget TV episode full of plot holes. (Picard isn’t on Netflix? Bugger that, then.)
  2. All of the TNG films were embarrassing crap, though. First Contact was arguably the least-worst, but still crap.
  3. (Wasn’t there an unofficial sequel to Excite Bike 64 lacking the Excite franchise brand name? Or was that something else?)
  4. Same, sadly. Followed deKay’s (very useful) guide, but even then, it’s not fool proof due to the 3DS’s weird hardware design. (BTW, I have to correct my earlier post – lost my original AC:NL village due to the microSD card in my first New 3DS XL – my third 3DS – getting corrupted. Second village I made, and all my 3DS games data, got wiped on the move to another New 3DS XL after my previous one had gotten quite worn out.)
  5. *sigh* I lost two well-developed New Leaf villages with completed houses when I transferred to subsequent brand new 3DS systems. Always regretted buying AC:NL as a download rather than physical copy, at least I’d still have my village safe while the cartridge lasts. (After the second accidental wipe I bought a cheap Nintendo Selects reissue copy, still sealed, in preparation for when the 3DS eShop is closed down...)
  6. Just defeated the seventh gym... Getting a strong sense of S/S suffering from Wind Waker Syndrome; in so many places there feels things have been left out from the game world and story. All being said, I’m finding this game a considerably less satisfying experience than any of the 3DS ‘Mon adventures.
  7. Any anime series currently worth watching on Netflix? (I’ve already seen Angel Beats, Evangelion, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and Hi-Score Girl. Those are good anime.)
  8. General Reminder: Importing anything before 31 January will be as cheap as you’ll ever be able to import; once the Pound collapses and far more import duties are imposed, you’ll wish you’ll have bought stuff earlier.
  9. Thanks. Probably was over-thinking things a bit!
  10. Just started playing Sword at the weekend. The open wild areas throw me off – it breaks the familiar Pokemon game structure – am I meant to go about battling and capturing the powerful monsters there during the adventure, or is the area something to come back to in the after-game?
  11. Elite, Lemmings and Populous unquestionably deserve to be on portage stamps. The rest... not so much, really.
  12. Think how many classic British 8-bit and 16-bit games could've been commemorated in stamp form, and they chose Worms...
  13. I’m amazed how generally forgotten about NZS is. It was a big deal in this part of the world due to Ocean’s various home conversions, and I assume it must’ve made an impression in Japan as well due to its release on domestic formats like the FM Towns, X68000 and PC Engine. Yet nothing in the last decade, not even a western indie game or two paying homage. The nearest thing I can think of to NZS is the Kirby series, purely because of the similar ready availability of a flight power in a platform game, and Kirby’s ability to absorb enemy powers kind of parallels Tiki Kiwi’s balloon-stealing shenanigans. That’s only a vague set of similarities however, Kirby games not being particularly challenging, and the level designs lack the maze layouts of NZS’s later stages. (The DS ‘remakequel’ of NZS isn’t worth playing other than out of curiosity value, unfortunately. Still, it can be acquired fairly cheaply.)
  14. This is almost certainly what will happen, I expect.
