Im not a fan of Smash Bros. but I’m a huge fan of Persona 5, and this looks cool as fuck. Loved Futaba in the corner yelling “beat em up”, the splash screen for an all out attack, Morgana being ace and Ann in the panther costume etc. For a game that’s basically all about fan service, this is all fan service and it looks fan-tastic.

Baba Is You is easily the most inventive game I've played in a while.

It's also the only game in as long as I can remember that regularly makes me feel like a complete fucking idiot, yet in such a way that I can't stop going back to it.

Looks like I'll be buying Flashback again.

I got this for £3.50 in the recent sale plus using some coins. It’s really good! I never got past the jungle on the Amiga, but with the new rewind system it’s a bit more forgiving. It opens out a lot once you get past the jungle and becomes a bit more of an adventure game than just shooting and platforming.

It looks great, the platforming is good but the combat is a bit fiddly. Unlike say Another World, there is actually a decent game here under the nice graphics.

Another World was an okay adventure game, but the controls were God-tier awful.

I'm sure we've had this conversation before and we both agreed that you were wrong at the end of it.

That it was a good game or that the controls were fine?

Yeah AW is dogshit. Flashback on the other hand still holds up today. I’m actually surprised given it’s 25 years old.

All the gaming news sites are teasing me with details on Virtua Racing today but it's only available on the Japanese store... I hope it comes out over here soon!

The same here. I don't want to complicate things by having two accounts.

I actually tried this. It looked to be doing fine but it gave me some japanese gibberish after entering my creditcard nr

Hope the wait won’t be too long...

Remember I told you that my joy con was experiencing the stick drift problem? And that my wife's cousin works in an official Nintendo repair centre?

Well, these turned up today.

Two brand new official analogue sticks. They're tiny!

After a bit of fiddling and squinting (these things are tiny) I managed to change it over and it works like a dream. I'm pleased!

Virtua Racing is already very well emulated in MAME, I was playing it last night and it's spot on.

That said they do seem to have worked very hard on the Switch conversion, if it turns up on the UK store I'll buy it, simply to support this sort of project as much as anything else. (It gets 1080 and 60FPS, which is nice.)

Kinda fucked up that they're requiring a subscription to share levels you've made and play levels other people have made.

I don't understand why they'd want to create a barrier for people to upload levels.

I thought their online subscription was for online multiplayer.

No, it’s also for cloud saves and NES games. I suspect they’ll want to push this as much as they can and SMM could be Nintendo’s Halo when it comes to getting people to pay for online subscriptions.

Yeah, Nintendo like making money. You can't blame them and at only £20ish a year, the subscription is worth it for Tetris 99 alone.

But this even negatively impacts people who have the subscription. Because they can't play levels by people who don't have a subscription. It's reducing the pool of people who can create/share levels.

This is why LBP/Dreams have no such restriction.

I can't think of any game that requires a subscription for sharing player produced content.

Fans of emulation on the Switch (which may just be me), may be interested to know there's been a couple of breakthroughs recently.
Firstly, a new version of Lakka (Retroarch running in Linux), which now has sound, and doesn't mess up your battery. The downside is that there's no Bluetooth support, so it's handheld only. Allegedly it can run Reicast/Dolphin at full speed (for some games), although I tried Windwaker, which seemed to be playable, apart from really annoying audio crackles that made me want to turn it off. Which brings me to the next disadvantage, as you can't actilually turn it off. There's no sleep mode, so if you want to turn the screen off, your only option is to reboot to RCM and then hope you're holding the power button down long enough to actually switch it off.

The second development is a bit more exciting, as a native build of Reicast has appeared. Apparently not running as well as it does through Lakka, it still seems to run a lot of games at full speed and has taken up big chunks of my Saturday. Shenmue is interesting though as the textures are messed up leading to characters wearing other people's faces as clothes and vice versa.

Well, it's rather changed it so that I'm no longer at all interested in buying it, so...
