Giving Mariokart Tour a bit of a go during my lunch break. Bye Bye iPhone battery!
Haven't played it myself but from what I've read, the whole lootbox setup is pretty grim.

Looks like it's time for a play through again 8-)

After playing the original I tried the Definitive Edition on PC a while back but the frame rate was terribad. This looks great :awe:
I think I read something engine wise was changed for this so it doesn't have those issues :think: , would like a physical release for this and not a lrg **** release .i dl the demo to see what it was like on the switch and so want to play through it again.

I see the snes controllers are finally released in europe ....26.99 and 8+ shipping ? :problem:

Ugh. I was okay with £26.99. Didn’t consider that shipping.

The screen shot won’t mean much alone but the hold box is empty because I just decided to make this more difficult by not once using it. 8-)

I bought a Switch Lite and I've been playing Mario Odyssey for a couple of evenings now. It makes me wish the Galaxy games were re-released as they were way more fun and even looked better. Not impressed, sorry.

Virtua Racing on the other hand is ace.

I only play Tetris 99. It’s brilliant.

I haven’t played enough to judge but the new style of both Mario and BOTW just didn’t grab me and keep me like the previous, more videogamey ones. They do look great though and I still mean to go back.

Cant remember if I’ve said this before but I was a little turned off when the reviews of Mario Odyssey praised the continuous play - as it didn’t “break the immersion” like previous Mario games. I like games that break the immersion. I like short bursts that come to an end.

:think: Best not assume too much when I’ve not played it much. I’m moaning about a game that looks very good.

Is Odyssey fully playable on the Lite? I seem to remember you had to use one of the daft joycon air controls to get enough height to reach one of the moons :think:

I played through Ori again. Really enjoyed it 2nd time around too. Looking forward to Will of the Wisps. I might have to play it on Pee Cee though if it's a MS exclusive on release.

Mainly playing Dead Cells on the switch still at the moment. Took a while to get the first boss cell but it seems relatively easy to reach and beat The Hand of the King on every run with no boss cells selected now. Reaching the Hand of the King with one boss cell is proving to be tricky but I'm sticking with it. Grt8 game :awe:

The worlds in Odyssey are way too big. I also like short bursts and tend to avoid open world stuff. There are also way too many power moons. Finding or reaching one is hardly special. Especially if you rack up 40 on your first go in just one world. I also wish the game was more vibrant. Some of the textures are downright iffy.

Doing some of the gestures with the Lite makes me feel dumb, and somewhat angry at Nintendo. The game keeps referencing the separate Joycons. Feels like it's taunting me. I can do some of the flicks and whatnot, but can't see what's going on when I do so... Hardly feels like a quality Nintendo product at this point.

Isn’t this like buying a 2DS then crying when the games talks about 3D :think: You can’t play 1-2 switch, that’s reason enough to by the lite

I thought Mario-O was really good to begin with, then got bored and it was an absolute chore to finish it.

Well, I can't imagine it would be too hard for the game to recognise which system it's being played on and stop pushing the joycons accordingly.

I enjoyed Odyssey a lot, felt like a sequel to Mario 64. Suppose it was a bit on the easy side apart from some of the final moons, but I liked the puzzle nature of finding them - similar to tracking down the shrines in BOTW.

Haven't played anything on the Switch for a while, been chipping away at some DS stuff. Ghost Trick is excellent.

yeah Odyssey is good if not overly challenging I actually need to go back and finish it :palm: and so is BOTW..... im never finishing that ! :lol: properly anyway , but I do agree with PJ in it didnt grab me in the same way as some other zeldas. either way 2d mario's > 3d marios ,I've always struggled to enjoy the 3d ones over the 2d.

and tetris 99 > everything else ....although I'm crap when up against good people at the end :problem: :problem:

I'm the opposite. Mario 64 is one of my all time favourites.
