Picked up NBA 2K19 for 2.99 on the eshop, I think it’s on sale across all platforms

I dunno how to feel about Xenoblade Chronicals 2. The graphics are fine and the gameplay is fun enough... But the voice acting and characters speaking over one another (with limited lines) is just bad.

man, I wonder what the pitch meeting for Mario + Rabbids was like.

"Okay, so what if we have a crossover. Mario meets the Rabbids."

"Will it be like a Mario game or a Rabbids game?"

"Neither. XCOM"

"Wooooooah. And what if we have a Rabbid that's dressed like Peach and but acts like a valley girl."

"YES. Oh, and we should have Rabbids that have Austin Powers fembot guns."

"I love our new drug policy!"


"We don't have one anymore."

"I KNOW RIGHT?"

Are Lets Go Pikachu/Lets Go Eevee the template for which the Pokemon series will play like on the Switch? I gotta say - I'm obsessed with this right now. My wife bought me Lets Go Pikachu this past weekend as a gift from my son for father's day and I in turn got her Lets Go Eevee as an early anniversary gift. She was not at all looking forward to playing, as she thought Pokemon looked dumb. She's now almost 20 hours in and is obsessed as well.

I hope the ball thing isn't going to be mandatory for Sword and Shield but... I think so.

Ah. Yeah, I can't imagine them phasing that out. I've just been using the single joy con. My three year old gets a kick out of being able to capture them with it too.

It has already been confirmed that you can't use the Pokeball Plus as a controller - it wouldn't work because you need a second stick for the camera controls and I assume more inputs than the Plus has. You can use it to walk around with a Pokemon however.

Sword/Shield will have Pokemon visible in the field, but it goes back to battling and throwing Pokeballs to catch them.

ugh, I actually like the non battle system for catching them. I can't even count how many times I've tried to catch them on the DS games and drained their energy to nothing.

I prefer the Let's Go system as well. The idea of a Let's Go version of Gold and Silver really interests me, more so than a mainline Pokemon game.

I prefer the Let's Go system for catching, but for levelling up I would prefer a more standard version of grinding and not having to rely on catching combination multipliers of the same Pokémon to get a decent amount of XP.

That and if you're as ridiculous about things as I am (LEVEL EVERYTHING UP EVEN IF I NEVER USE IT!) then you run out of money/balls far too quickly.

I've seen this and was curious. I think the pitch meeting idea has just sold it to me...

I'm getting it on Saturday because I didn't really feel like paying an extra fiver just to get it on release day (cheers, Amazon!) but I'm excited! :D

I broke down and got a set of vouchers since I'll for sure make use of them. I might even buy a second set, because originally I was going to use the other one for Fire Emblem: Three Houses, but now I want to get Ultimate Alliance 3 as well.

I am so unbelievably hyped for this game.

It arrived today instead, even better! Glad I didn't waste that £5 now!

Mario Maker 2 is fun. The course creator is a little awkward when you're playing in docked mode, but it just takes some getting used to.

I'm stoked to give this a try tomorrow. My wife is picking up our copy when she's at work today, but she won't be home until super late, so I won't get to play until the morning. That's okay though. Reviews look good, and most reviewers say that the course creator seems a bit wonky when the console is docked, but that after you get used to it, trying to do it handheld feels worse.

I love that there's a story mode to the game, also.

Like...I want it, but I doubt I would make much use of the course creator, as I'm not super creative in that regard, nor do I have Nintendo Online for the online maps.

Silly Ruki, you don't get Nintendo Online for maps or online play. You get it for Tetris 99.

Seriously though, reviews are saying that the story mode alone is worth the price of the game, and it's designed to teach you how to use the course creator while you play. I'm excited.
