I don't know anyone who cared about Smash when we were younger, we used to play Goldeneye and Mario Kart



Yeah we had factions. Everyone was into Goldeneye and Mario Kart, but beyond that there were pockets who liked Smash Bros, some were more into the wrestling games (Royal Rumble on Wrestlemania 2000 remains an awesome multiplayer experience). I think I was pretty much alone in being obsessed with Wayne Gretzky's 3D Hockey. 
 
I'm still gona get butchered on this new Smash game. Not played since Melee on the Game Cube.

What kind of flaws do you see in Red Dead, Noc?


The controls, for a start. There’s no reason for a game with that kind of budget to feel so clunky and sluggish. You get used to them after a while but you shouldn’t need to.

A lot of the missions and side quests are essentially pointless too. Some of them don’t even give you any kind of reward. Riding right across the map to watch a 90 second cut scene play out, sick.

The in-game economy is fucked as well. As soon as you do your first bank job you’re basically minted for the rest the game and can buy anything you want.

Still an incredible narrative experience overall but I’d rate it below God of War, Astro Bot, Dead Cells and possibly Spider-Man for Game of the Year.

I agree with some of that, the controls were never an issue for me really but I can sort of see what you mean. Part of me feels it was intentional though to encourage slower movement/pace of play rather than legging it about all over the place like you do in most games. The game is meant to be taken at a slow place but this isn't to a lot of people's taste (me included, to a certain extent). It is the perfect game to just get blazed and wander around hunting squirrels admiring the views etc for hours, but these days I think I prefer a 10-20 hour game with a tight, well-written story rather than a 200 hour sprawling epic that takes over your life for a month!
 
Not played Astro Bot or Dead Cells but I would certainly rate GoW higher than Red Dead. Not Spiderman though, that got boring for me way quicker than Red Dead, and when you compare them both in terms of open-world-ness Red Dead is on another level!

God Of War would be my game of the year too.
 
Do love Red Dead 2 and in ways prefer it more but yeh the controls in RDR2 no matter how you dress it up are clunky and at times unresponsive and some the missions , gameplay and gun controls feels a throwback to older gen eras and hasn't really changed much since old GTAs.

The reward is the story, its not an RPG and i still have loads of stuff I can't afford 120 hours in. Below Spiderman and Dead Cells? Come off it lol. Personally I think it's an almost flawless game and the perceived flaws are more personal preferences and design choices.

God of War was a great game though so I can't complain with that winning, the gameplay was definitely more fun in that game.

Yeah it is definitely personal preference. Rockstar took a risk and it was never gonna please everyone but it definitely is a classic, even if you don't agree in terms of gameplay, what they achieved on a technical level is pretty impressive!

Nope, I was surprised as it's usually a Kojima love in. All Nintendo showed was Joker in Smash.

So Epic games have launched a store with the aim of replacing Steam, they only take around a10% cut compared to around 25% on Steam. The best thing is they are going to be givin away a free game every two weeks. Its annoying not having all your games in one place but this can only drive down costs for everyone.

The first free games are Subnautica and Super Meat Boy.

It’s starting to look pretty much inevitable that I’m gonna pick this up before Xmas. I have zero will power with well reviewed games.

Monolith - 8 bit style rogue lite twin stick shooter with superb gameplay, can be had for a couple quid. Do it.

Never really played it before but I've got the Wii U one which is pretty much the same minus some characters but I just can't get into it
 
Starlink starter pack on the switch is down to £25 at Smyths toys already if anyone is interested? Sales must have been dismal

+1 for not playing Smash until Wii U and not really being able to get into it. I do like it I just can't be bothered to learn to play it to a decent standard.

Epic games shop probably won't replace steam imo but the more competition the merrier really.

I'd say it's worth it if you have friends to play against.

Playing Smash on Wii U, I really don't get it. Barely any moves and it's hard to see whats going on most of the time and there's very little feedback for your attacks so it's hard to know if you're landing, doesn't help that there's no rumble in my Gamecube controller. It's not a terrible game or anythjng but GOTY talk seems crazy to me.

Mario Kart on Wii U is still surprisingly busy online, obviously there's lots of other people who don't think it's worth paying 4 times as much for the same game but at 1080p instead of 720

Can you still find 200cc matches on that? I started having problems finding lobbies with a decent amount of people about a month or so after the update.

tbh I have a feeling my account or console might have been banned for using custom firmware anyway, I haven't intentionally used the online services since I did it but I have a feeling I saw a message pop up saying that at one point.

I think I've only done 150cc but there's always been at least 7 players each time.

I was watching a video about modding the Wii U the other day, it looks like a pretty decent emulator system
