I only buy digital downloads these days


This is also me, but with certain stuff (e.g. first party games I know I’m likely to play only once), I allow myself to purchase a cartridge that stays in my Switch until I’m done, so no real difference to a digital download. Then I sell it for not much less than I paid for it.

 

Sometimes I’ll replace it with the digital version if I decide it’s something I’ll want to keep forever (I did this with Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild), and I’ll usually wait until it’s on sale.

I loved Diddy Kong Racing, but I bet the framerate will be painful. Plus I always wished the karts etc… were faster.

 

Mario Kart 64 was awful. The tracks felt like they went on forever, and who thought that having to wait for a train to pass was a good idea.

Perfect Dark is Rare isn’t it, no chance of that happening. 

 

One of the rumours for the increased cost is that Nintendo are paying to license these games from the third parties and it hasn't come cheap.

Wave Race 64 is still utterly fantastic, and one of the best racers ever.

That’s good to hear I look forward to that one. 
 

Don’t get me wrong I can’t wait to play these games, but their pricing model with bits of DLC added in, and no clear path forward, is all out of whack.

Replayed DKR few months back,  no issues with frame rate at all.

just watched this with the sound off so couldn’t hear any of the chat/criticism, but that looked bloomin’ impressive. 


I’ve got a copy coming tomorrow!

 

I meant to message you - simply games offered a £10 part refund or return for the bashed up Metroid dread box. I did the latter but if you’re keeping it they’ll give you a few quid back.

I thought I saw both Donkey Kong 64 and Banjo Kazooie on the new advert for Nintendo Online.

 

EDIT: Yep, Banjo Kazooie was in there at least.

 

Banjo was published by Nintendo, as was Donkey Kong 64 (And while we're at it, Goldeneye)

 

Perfect Dark was published by Rare.

 

I suspect this makes a big difference.

Same, £10 was a piss take. I told them that so they offered £15. Sent it back and ordered from Nintendo.

A rather incendiary video from Jim, and tbh I agree with him about Nintendo Online being a bit of a rip off, but I don’t agree with everything he says. It’s not an easy subject to just be for or against, there are good arguments both ways, but the idea that Nintendo shouldn’t charge for old ROMS because it’s easier and more convenient, not to mention cheaper, to just pirate them is, weird. 
 

I mean you could argue that with literally anything; books, movies, music etc. 
 

And no way are Kotaku innocent here either, with comments such as “thank God for pirates” in their “news” article on Dread emulation. 
 

Anyway, here it is.

Dying Light looks to run pretty well based on a 5 minute go - I haven't hit the open world yet though so let's see. Not as blurry as Witcher 3, that's for sure.

 

Very tempted to buy it, would be keen for further thoughts once you've managed to play a bit more.

I'll give it a few hours this evening, hopefully. I've never played it before so hoping it will be good fun! Also comes with some stickers, a journal and a fold out map, all in a box (like Witcher 3, really). None to these extras should influence your purchase, mind because I don't really see the point!

Is Dying Light physical only, or a staggered digital release or something? It’s nowhere to be found on the eshop, not even in the coming soon section or by searching. 
 

edit. Ah :hmm:

Quote

Dying Light on Switch is unavailable to buy digitally in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, meaning players in these regions can only purchase the game physically if they want to play. That's because Dying Light is banned in Germany, where the Nintendo eShop for Europe, Australia and New Zealand is registered, meaning that the eShop can't sell the digital version
