Toad Treasure Tracker was awesome! I loved it and plan on double dipping via the 3DS for the 3D effects.

@Lroy It can happen sometimes that team mates vote to forfeit the match but if you don't vote then they'll need to keep on playing or force quit which gives them a temporary ban. I'm not sure what the benefit of forfeiting is, other than not getting a defeat on your records I'm pretty sure it affects your rank,which is much more important in my opinion. I was playing 2v2 the other night and we were losing 2v1, my team mate voted to forfeit the match with 5 seconds to go. I think it's someone from here actually, F2Skipper. If you're reading this can you tell me the benefits of forfeiting?

I'm not totally innocent myself, sometimes you're getting absolutely pumped after a minute or 2 against a much higher ranked player and its frustrating continuing with the match. It's rare I do it though.

As for what I was talking about earlier, there is a Spring Event started yesterday. It runs for a couple of weeks. You can earn flowers just by playing and use them to purchase the Spring gear or Decryptors, which are basically keys for opening crates. There are 5 Decryptors available for 50 flowers each. Aim for those first as they take the longest to get. Use them on any of your crates and you may snag yourself a nice car or some cool wheels. If you were to purchase 5 keys they'd cost you Β£3.75 so it's not a bad free gift. I'm ashamed to admit I've spend Β£37.50 on key bundles. No more though, happy with what I've got and over the summer, Decryptors will randomly drop after matches.

@Agent721 Impatiently waiting for my arcade cabinet to arrive today,will be here by 8pm. My stickers won't arrive though until the end of the week or beginning of next. Once I have those on it I'll take some pics and show it off on here.

@OorWullie @Lroy Thanks guys! Kinda wish it was a daily thing without limitations, although I can understand them wanting it to be something special to get enough players playing together when it's live.

I'm a bit clueless on Rocket League.
Is it possible to unlock everything without needing to spend real money on it?
I guess special modes and such are DLC? But when buying the physical edition, does it include all that?

Arcade cabinet? Oh my! Which game is it? Or is it one to be used as a MAME cabinet?
I'm actually thinking of buying a pinball machine myself.
Really want Ghostbusters, but it's 9000€ or so and I don't have that kind of money to throw at something like that with all the work needed on the new home.

@Agent721 I'm gonna wait for the Switch release to play it, but I'm much more looking forward to playing it now.
Might even pick it up on 3DS somewhere down the line if I can find it cheap as well.

@meppi64 The special edition comes with some cars, wheels, decals, rocket boosts and trails that would otherwise cost money. I'm pretty sure when added up, you've saved money from buying it all separately. Not sure if there is any exclusive stuff in there too.

Really it's all just cosmetic though and has no bearing on the game other than looking good. All game modes are there for everyone in the base game. The crates which you earn just from playing contain snazzy gear but to open those you need keys which cost money, or if you earn them they can be opened with Decryptors. Again though, it's all just cosmetic.

I really like customising my cars,there are so many variations you can choose to make your car unique.

When you play online matches, you unlock random gear. Mostly stuff like toppers and sometimes banners,all cosmetic. But you can trade these with other players or trade 5 items of the same worth for 1 item of higher worth. It's all fun, sometimes you get good stuff, sometimes you don't.

It's one of my all time favourite games. Spend some proper time with it and you'll see it open right up and the possibilities of it.

@meppi64 I meant to add, the arcade cabinet is just one of those cheap wooden ones off Amazon to put my Switch in. Going to customise it myself with stickers I've ordered. I'll probably hardly use it but it'll look good and will be fun to play the weekly challenges with it.

@jbs-dad Thanks for joining me mate for an impromptu session of ROCKET LEAGUE just then. Was a good laugh. Had my baby girl on my lap and then my wife and son came back from the school run. Hence why my car barely moved at the back end of that last match, lol!

Omg! Lumines!
One of the very best PSP games ever!
That's such a huge surprise!

@OorWullie Ah, yes. Now I remember that cardboard cabinet for Switch. Totally forgot about it!

From what I'm seeing everything sounds fine with Rocket League.
I like some nice customisation option, but I'm not a fan of micro transactions.
You can blame EA and Activision for that, especially EA for giving me PTSD.
Then again, if a game is really worth it and the devs don't take their audience for granted and don't exploit us, I'm fine with paying a little extra.

@meppi64 I bought ROCKET LEAGUE digitally for whatever price it launched at - Β£10/Β£15 approx. I've no intention of paying any money for purely cosmetic customised cars or what not. I've now played it for 15hrs, so in my book, the game has already repaid its cost in gameplay value. Totally worth it considering many folks end up pumping hundred of hours into the game.

@Lroy I'll probably have it sometimes next week as I'm expecting Base to ship it tomorrow or the day after.

Have you played Lumines before?
This might sound a bit weird as there were 5 or 6 versions in total of Lumines released over the years but seeing Lumines Remastered, I'm hoping it'll be the very first game, with the exact same songs, skins and content, just in HD.
It's literally perfect and the sequels never really felt as perfect, even though being terrific overall.

@meppi64 I am aware of LUMINES having owned a PSP in the part and still being a Vita owner but I never put much time into them. I know they are very, very highly regarded puzzle games.

@OorWullie Thanks for taking the time to outline a bit more the wider aspects of ROCKET LEAGUE. Noticed you'd played for over 200hrs!!! So you know what it's all about for sure. I did shoot you over an invite for a match this afternoon but no worries.

How's OUTLAST by the way? You're into your Switch horror games, I saw some gameplay of it earlier today and it did pique my curiosity.

@Lroy Oh, you're in for a treat then.
It's the perfect game to put on, either with a good stereo system of headphones and then wonder where the past 4 hours disappeared to.
One you get in the zone, everything else just seems to melt away.
One of the very few games where synesthesia is not just a buzz-word used to try and make the game sound cool. Rez being another.

I've heard quite a few good impressions from Outlast. Haven't played it myself though. Word of mouth certainly is positive and it seems to get really scary as well.

My pre-sticker cabinet

Untitled

It's made with cheap plywood and was covered with saw dust when it arrived but I knew that already from the reviews. Put together though and it looks pretty good I think. It has a good viewing angle too. I'm going to glue round the connectors and then take the edges off with a Dremel. The exposed wood edges I'll just colour in with a permanent marker. Can't wait for my stickers to arrive now haha

This is how I'll be playing the weekly challenges from now

@OorWullie do you have any decent spare goal explosions you would trade? Don't know if I have anything you would want but could be worth a go??

Very coo! I see your using an 8 bit do joystick. I use them quite a bit as well, own the NES & SNES versions, as well as one of the pro versions.

Let us know how you like gaming on that cabinet.
