Tim is clearly a dickhead, but let’s be honest, is anyone here not going to subscribe because of the price hike? 


I won’t. I only pay the current sub out of habit and the fact it’s peanuts, I’m not going to shell out 50 bones for essentially the same thing.

 

If I desperately wanted to play N64 games I already played 20 years ago it might be different.

I hadn't realised that the expansion pack is only available as a 12 month option. I had just assumed it was going to work like the current setup where you have the option of signing up for a shorter period of time. 

I suppose that's the smart option from their perspective if they are going to be adding stuff like DLC to the service.

It’s £35 for the enhanced sub, isn’t it?

With regards the online expansion pack. In the grand scheme of things £35 isn't bad for what's on offer. I can see new Switch owners and new people to Nintendo getting value out of the package. However I think if you've been around gaming a while its a different proposition. What amazes me is how Nintendo can keep releasing the same things over and over in different guises. Got to give them credit for that! :D 

 

I guess well designed and crafted art should be kept on modern platforms. Shame they don't give options to enhance the visuals a bit and give them a brush of paint to sweeten the deal really. N64 graphics will look pretty dated these days. Although Mario 64 still has a certain charm about it TBH.

It would be great if they gave all the games the same treatment as Mario 64 in the Mario 3D collection. 

 

Or indeed, the same treatment the community have given the Mario 64 port on certain Anbernic device firmwares. It’s a port, not emu.

Did they enhance it on that collection? (never really read up much on it - although lots of people seemed quite moany about the collection in general)

Not really bar a resolution increase but what they did do is made it play like the original in terms of controller input and low lag. It’s pretty much the most accurate conversion you can play. That’s all I want from these games short of a complete remaster, which they’d obviously charge more for. 
 

(they redid some textures too I think, but when you play it just feels like the original)

People gotta people I guess.

 

Upset because the new Monkey Target isn’t a pixel perfect recreation of the original.

I'm sure this has been asked asked a hundred times before, but can anyone recommend any games to play with my three year old? I've got a Switch dock downstairs now, so it's fun to play games with him in the sitting room. He can barely hold the controller the right way up, and gets easily distracted, so anything that lets him feel like he's taking part and doesn't require me to constantly take control is what I'm looking for. Mario Kart 8's assist mode is perfect, as he just needs to press A and it steers for him. Any thing else like that?

I give up.  After what's now my forth attempt at getting into BOTW, I still find it bland, dull and uninteresting and I know its very much against the popular opinion but it even *looks* pretty poor to me visually in particular character design.  I really cant see what all the fuss is about.  Having levered myself away from the amazing Hades on the other hand, I find myself stuck as to what game I should buy next.  I only buy digital downloads these days and as much as I would like to buy Metroid, I am not sure its worth £50.  I have Mario Odyssey which was brilliant.  I do feel like something new though, any recommendations for single player Switch greatness before I just settle for a replay of Skyrim instead?

Have you played Hollow Knight?

Looks interesting, I will have a closer look.   I bought also Dead Cells which is largely unplayed which also looks decent.  At this stage of life (47 yo family man) games need to quickly grab me, and Hades did that to a huge degree and I would say I became quite addicted to it too, being able to pick it up and instantly be in the thick of things fits well into my lifestyle.

While it plays completely differently Dead Cells is a run based roguelite with background progression in the same way Hades is. There's a good chance you'd like it. I prefer it to Hades.

Kirby Star Allies. He can just faff about while you take charge. It's ideal for little kids, my almost four year old loves it.

Well you mentioned wanting Metroid, and Hollow Knight is a more than worthy substitute if you don't want to part with £50. It's not the easiest of games, but if you enjoyed Hades then I doubt there's nothing you can't handle. If you're looking for something shorter, but no less essential, then check out Inside.

Which two?

 

Animal Crossing and Pokemon Let's Go.

So it's 5$ (not sure about the UK pricing) for the N64/Genesis games & $25 for the Animal Crossing DLC with no option not to have the DLC?

 

I was on the fence about the DLC but I guess i'll go for it.  I'm very curious now what happens when it comes time to renew.  Are they going to offer something else worth $25 or are you just going to be locked into the higher tier with no option to downgrade?

 

You don't keep the DLC if they sub expires though.

Yes, unless I see a deal. It's not worth that to me.
