Has anyone got Alien Isolation? I might pull the trigger it's 30% off. 

I haven't played it on Switch but have played it on PS4. To be honest it's kind of dull, very atmospheric and scary but it's more like a walking simulator than a first person shooter. It's difficult and frustrating. If you like the idea of playing a game along the lines of the original Alien movie you may like it.

 

30% off? If the retail is £40 does that mean it's £28? Too expensive for me personally. It can be purchased on other systems for less than a tenner.

 

Edit: it's down to £21. I still think it's a bit pricey. I'd wait until it's below £12.

I wouldn't pay more than 15 quid for alien isolation and that's expensive. Nintendo sales are a bit shit. 50 quid game they will knock £1.27 off.

You can find really good deals, they may still be selling the turn based Mario game (Kingdom Battle) for £7.99. I'm sure that retails for £30.

I've actually been playing the NES and SNES through online quite a bit. It's just like going to the arcades and giving random games a whirl! 

 

The thing about modern games I just don't have the time to dig into them they take so long.

I bought my granddaughter a switch lite and animal crossing for her upcoming birthday. As I can't see her at the moment I had it delivered to my daughter's house and my granddaughter can use it straight away. 

 

I saw Pacific Wings is only 89p on the Nintendo shop and I loved that game, phoned the daughter to buy it and put it on the granddaughters switch, for when the plague is over.

Today was the first day isolation really made me fed up. So I bought mario kart and me and missus have cheered right up.

Mario Kart is just a brilliant game. It's so well put together, a 10/10 game. 

 

Have you tried online battle mode yet? It's a proper laugh.

I'm going to have to get on that more, I haven't played it for a while. It is brilliant though.

 

I've also picked up this little gem - it's like a modern take on Ghosts n Goblins and it's reduced for a few more days from £8.99 to 89p. Volgarr The Viking...

In case it's of interest, Alien Isolation is available on Steam for PC for £1.50. You can get all the content for £8.74.

Yeah I'll be waiting til it goes under a tenner on the Switch, don't really buy for anything else these days. The portability has spoiled me. 

 

Ghostbusters remastered is on for sale for £11.99. The Wii version was decent if a bit repetitive.

I remember when they were cutting edge graphics - that and Starwing & Stunt FX were seen as the pinnacle of graphics. 
 

Look shite now. 
 

I’m sure I read that’s part of the reason Nintendo aren’t doing N64 & Gamecube downloads the same as the NES & SNES.

 

The old 2D games keep a niche value, whereas the 3D games just look shite compared to today’s games.
 

That, and they probably reckon by tarting up the old 3D games and flogging them for £50 each, they’ll make more money.

Have you seen it run? It's smooth as fuck.

Beyond 'arcade perfect' - Virtua Racing is a triumph on Switch

It's a fantastic conversion. Are there any other games they have converted from the same period? (Space Harrier was a personal favourite, as was Outrun).

We bought our Son a switch Lite for his birthday at the beginning of the year, recently bought Zelda Breath of the Wild during the lockdown. 

 

What an incredible game and fascinating to see him roam across the landscape. Spending time watching videos on youtube about all the various quests and things to collect. Takes me back to the 90s and my old Nes & Snes. Amazing to see how engrossed he is in the world. No one makes games like Nintendo.

They need to get on with announcing some games for Q4. 
 

I’ve enjoyed Bioshock but I’d like to look forward to a few new games.

Is Paper Mario out this week?


Think so. Pretty sure I had it on the Wii. It was decent enough but not something I’m desperate to play again.
