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!


Thursday, it would seem.

My Friend Pedro is more fun to watch than it is to play. I think I ruined it by playing Katana Zero first.

How does the Switch online voice chat app work? Specifically, where does the game audio go? Does the phone output only chat audio, or does it mix in the game audio?

I've only used it a couple of times but the game sounds still come out the Switch with just the voices coming out the phone... Just like making a phone call while playing a game.

Probably a pretty canny move, I suspect there are people who're only really interested in having something like the Switch for travelling and would prefer to use a 'proper' console or PC in the house and so would be attracted by the idea of not paying for functionality they don't want. If my commute was longer than ten minutes I'd almost certainly be snapping this up.

That's going to sell incredibly well. Especially for the Pokemon and Animal Crossing crowd. Probably not for me, though.

Hmm. Although I was just reading a thread on Reddit about it and loads of people mentioning issues with the analogue sticks then pointing out that having that happen when you can't swap the controller out for a new one would be pretty awful. The internet would have me believe it's incredibly common, but what's the general Beex experience been?

I believe Mr Dave and Vision have had to replace theirs. Maybe Gaz too. Mine has been fine.

I always expect second hardware revisions from Nintendo to be more reliable, tbf.

That’s confirmed? (Btw isn’t that a software issue anyway?)

I replaced mine. It wasn't too difficult to be honest, but I don't think I'd fancy doing it if I had to take apart a whole console.

Presumably in response to a threatened class action suit, Nintendo are now allegedly repairing drifting Joycons for free:

Made for summer! Great for playing on the beach! Unless it happens to be sunny outside, in which case you won't be able to see a damned thing on the screen.

Taito, not Nintendo. But yeah, that looks a bit of a mess. I do like me a bit of Bubble Bobble though, so if the price is right, I might still get it.

That doesn't look as bad as it could look I reckon.

I was thinking of comparing it to the Wii version but according to YouTube, that looks ok. Maybe it was Rainbow Islands I was thinking of?

They tried to fuck up the artwork in the Gameboy Advance release as well.

It had a “New” mode or something as well as the “classic”. Suffice to say I played New Bubble Bobble about twice and Classic BB for the rest. Still couldn’t get off level 99 though. Cunty bullshit level.

My sister brought Just Dance with her to mine recently & my daughter loves it. Looks far too active for my tastes, which probably sounds like I'm taking the piss given what I normally get up to, but these days if I have gaming time I just want to sit and chill.

That game looks amazing, I'd love to play as a naughty goose that goes around irritating people. More potential for being an annoying jerk than even Sneak King
