  1. If you end up going Nintendo, definitely buy a full-fat Switch so that you can play the likes of Mario Kart and (next year) Super Mario 3D World together on the big screen to negate the ‘just playing on his own’ problem of the Lite. I would say that the latter in multiplayer will be an unbelievable experience for someone of his age. The Wii U version was how my now 8 year old learnt how to do 3D platformers when he was of a similar age to your child, and playing with his dad just made it even better!
  2. While I semi-agree with this, unfortunately the game doesn't sound very good either. I do wonder if Dontnod are starting to make the classic Telltale mistake of spreading themselves way too thinly and saturating their own market to the point where everything comes crashing down around them.
  3. The controls weren't inverted... for me, up aimed up and down aimed down. Really annoying.
  4. Last night I tried out some titles in Rare Replay, as it's what the Series X is all about, clearly. Jet Force Gemini has aged incredibly badly. It's not unplayable by any means, but it looks so ugly and feels so janky these days. Disappointing, as I remember loving it back in the day. Perfect Dark Zero still isn't any good, though it has some interesting ideas. Seeing one of the first iterations of a cover system in action was quite funny - the pop and shoot gameplay (with massive lock on auto-aim) when in cover works OK, and I like how the view switches from first to t
  5. Anything operating with dynamic resolution should in theory look better even without a patch.
  6. Has anyone got Walkabout Mini Golf? I picked it up yesterday and it's delightful. Seems to have slipped under the radar a bit, but it's much better as a crazy golf game for me than Pro Putt/Topgolf. Would be cool to play some multiplayer with anyone else who has it.
  7. Look at the front page of this thread. People saying it was a massive scam over 5 years ago! And still no actual game.
  8. Wasn’t expecting that to get to me, but it’s exceptionally well done. Someone here must be chopping onions.
  9. I’ve listened to 2 gaming podcasts this weekend where people went on at length about the tricks system in Spider-Man: Miles Morales as if it was some big new thing. Er... tricks were an early unlockable in the skills tree in the last game, chaps. Just had a more annoying button combo to access.
  10. I’ve had a look at the dev’s forum and Twitter, and there’s total radio silence on whether this will ever get a next gen patch. Day One for me if it does.
  11. Mate, this is nothing special - we’ve all been through lockdown.
  12. My 8 year old loved it. The so long and tedious wheel spins were his fave bits.
  13. Coincidentally I was reading Chris Schilling’s Edge article about the making of Ori and the Blind Forest earlier today (written over 3 years ago!), and the devs said pretty much exactly this in his interview with them. They mentioned Prince of Persia 2008 as the absolute nadir of this direction, in that you couldn’t even fall to your death... in a POP game! Ludicrous.
  14. And thought Cuphead should be higher. A billion times.
  15. If it’s not the Ultimate Edition then this is a weird one, as surely Remedy want as many people to buy that version as possible for the next gen upgrade. Releasing the game on Game Pass (probably in standard edition form) before the upgrade is ready seems utterly bizarre to me, as it will surely reduce sales of the Ultimate Edition on Series X by fuckloads. But if it is the UE, then money in the bank, I guess... although it would be so weird to release it before the console can take advantage of it. Ugh, this makes zero sense as a business decision by Remedy. Need more
