Yeah trying the demo fro Dragon's Quest as well, seems enjoyable. Going to finish the demo first but might grab it.

All three games are pretty great, to be fair. All recommended ways to spend 100 hours while the world falls apart around you.

Finally, some good news...

 

https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020-03-30-sources-nintendo-switch-2020-line-up-dominated-by-mario-games-old-and-new

 

If you can’t be arsed to click it, it basically says to celebrate 35 years of Mario, they are remastering & re-releasing Mario 64, Mario Sunshine, the Mario Galaxies and Mario World 3D, there is a new Paper Mario coming and even though not in the article, a new Mario Kart is rumoured to be the big Christmas game. 
 

Have to admit, I’m pretty excited about some of these remasters. I won’t have played Mario 64 since 1997 or something and it was an unbelievable game, I’ll have forgotten most of the best bit.
 

I had Mario Sunshine on the GameCube but it wasn’t the best game, it was merely a 9/10 game rather than a >=9.5/10 game.

 

The Mario Galaxy games on the Wii were brilliant. I’m not sure how much more powerful the Switch is than the Wii so I’ll be interested to see how much better it looks. Also, it’ll be a bit of a different dynamic without the wand. 
 

Ive never played Mario World 3D on the Wii-U so I’ll be interested in that. Depending on when they all come out, I’ll be getting that one first.

 

In summary...

Excellent news. I'm assuming Galaxy may only work in docked mode though, to use motion controls?

 

Sunshine would be great to play again. 

I think there is some motion control on Mario Odyssey so I would assume they will change the game to limit the amount that is exclusive to motion control?

Wonder if there will be any remastered version of Ocarina of Time?

 

I could never get into Majorca’s Mask or Wind Waker.

 

A remastered Goldeneye or Perfect Dark would be prettay, prettay, prettay good. Although as Microsoft own Rare these days (or at least they did), probably unlikely.

 

Sure I read that while 4 is being delayed, they are remastering the Cube remasters of the Metroid Prime games.

Wasn't Ocarina of Time released on the 3DS?

Might have been. Dunno. A full remaster for the Switch would be unreal.

 

If they are doing the Galaxy games, they might do Twilight Princess as well.

Yeah, agree with all of that. I've never played Mario 64 so would love that. I've also never played Mario Galaxy 2 even though I own it. Never did finish Mario Galaxy 1 and now it's vanished. 

 

Still haven't finished Mario Odyssey though :/

There's a good sale on. Haven't pulled the trigger I keep wondering if I can be bothered starting a new game. 

Looks like there's going to be a load more added to the spring sale on the 9th, so you might want to hold on to your pennies til then. 

 

I've been playing the Mario Vs Rabbids game with my lad, great fun, I'd recommend it.

In the current Switch sale, just picked up Conduct Together 80/100 on metacritic (£17.99 down to 89p) and Serial Cleaner 75/100 on metacritic (£14.99 down to £1.49). Started Conduct Together and it's a great little train puzzle game. £33 worth of games for £2.38!

Got Conduct Together yesterday and had a great night with the daughter. Who would have thought a highly educated wonderful father would be unable to press three buttons in the right order repeatedly. I know where the X button is, and only use my left hand to press it, so why do I repeatedly press either A or B with my right hand ?

It's really tricky, many times I go to stop a train in a certain place then press the wrong button. Then panic sets in and trains are either stopping and starting everywhere or the dreaded train explosions! It's great fun and multiplayer must be a train hoot!

    • One of my favourite comedy movie teams.
    • John Barnes says he does believe Liverpool will regret missing out on the signature of Timo Werner because he was not fully committed to the joining them.

      Chelsea have agreed a deal to sign the RB Leipzig striker, despite the widely held view that the Reds were in prime position to seal the transfer.
        The news may have come as a shock as well as some disappointment to Liverpool fans who were looking forward to have another class forward joining the ranks.

      But it seems the only set of individuals not surprised were the club hierarchy themselves who were not rushed into reacting and engage in a bidding war with the West London club.

      John Barnes believes there is a clear reason for that as he explained to BonusCodeBets(via The Mirror).

      “Liverpool want players that want to play for Liverpool. I'm sure a lot of people were after [Virgil] van Dijk, but he wanted to come to Liverpool.

      "If they don't get a move on and Manchester City, Arsenal or Chelsea come in for him and he decides to go there, that's not the sort of player you want anyway.

      "Because he'll just go where they're going to pay him more money or he wasn't that committed to wanting to come to play for Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

      Jürgen Klopp does things in a very measured and strategic way, almost testing the nerve of the player regarding how much he wants to play for the club.

      Patience is the key and when they do sign on the dotted line, Klopp doesn’t just throw them to the wolves, instead he waits for the right time to bed them into the lineup.

      It could be the case that Klopp believed that Werner would grow impatient with that type of process, and therefore he was not the right man for the club.  

      Barnes believes that Werner may have failed the Klopp test and cited recent examples of World Class talents who were more than willing to join the Reds.

      "I don't think they have to get a move on, they didn't get a move on with Van Dijk or Alisson and a lot of people wanted them to, it's because they wanted to come. 

      “This is a test to see if he really wants to come and play for Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

      “Considering how things have panned out it seems Werner didn't pass Klopp's test, but at the same time Liverpool - who didn't meet the deadline - failed the forward's too.”

      Former Liverpool captain Jamie Redknapp agreed with his former club not purchasing Werner and questioned where he would fit in the lineup.

      “Who is going to replace. He’s a really good player, but we don’t know right now, is he better than Mane, Firmino, Salah?

      “It’s one of the best front three in the world right now so he doesn’t want to go somewhere and be a number two or a sub.

      “Will they regret it? You don’t know but that is what he has got to do. He has got to make Liverpool regret that decision, or at least make them think ‘I wish we had signed him.

      “For Liverpool, they have got to look at it and think, if you bring someone like him in it could upset the balance of them and maybe they might think, ‘would it be worth the risk to bring in another player.

      “They have three top-class players who don’t get many injuries, why risk upsetting balance.”
