The Eshop sale has started and there are a few games I'd like to get.

Bleed
Crypt of the Necrodancer
Count Lucanor

as well as Sol Divide and Moon Patrol. I can get all those off the Norwegian Eshop for Β£31.Not bad! I'd like to get Bloody Zombies as well but it's 2.9gb and that would mean deleting some games to make room for it. Going to wait for that one to go on sale another time,once I've got a new SD card or moved stuff over to my 32gb card. Can't be arsed doing that just now. There's a few games on there I paid full price for and haven't got around to playing yet, Steamworld Dig 2 and Owlboy are 2 of them. I'm glad you can't see the discount it received once you've already purchased it.

I'm holding off on Crypt of the Necrodancer as I think it'll be released physically one day by LRG like the Vita and PS4 versions were. Count Lucanor already has a physical release, so I'll pick that one up one day as well.

Bought a bit more than I was planning to.
Moon Patrol, World Heroes 2 Jet, Sol Divide, but also Steamworld Dig 1 for 5€. I'll gladly pick it up again if it ever gets a physical release. Same why I held off on Steamworld Heist for now.
Both brilliant games.
Picked up Quest of Dungeons as I'm looking for something in the vein of Shiren the Wanderer and DragonFangZ is still 20€ sadly.

Just played a couple of rounds of Moon Patrol and I had forgotten just how great the risk reward system in this game is. Super simple, yet it adds so much tension.
The faster you finish a section, the more points you receive for every second you have left over the average time. Not only makes going full speed it much harder to avoid obstacles, but also the avoid incoming fire for which you need to brake once in a while, even though you want to go as fast as possible.
Still so much fun, even after 35 years!
I also now just realised that I (once again) had thrown 2 games together in my mind.
For the longest time I seemed to remember that when playing Wonderboy, coming out of the woods in the first section and when you start to go up the hill, there were the normal size boulders that came down, but also supersized ones. Been looking for a game, official or bootleg that might have this in it as it wasn't in the original. So I thought it might be something like Super Wonderboy or something, but nope... It was actually Moon Patrol in which you have small and large boulders roll down the hills.
The second I saw the first one, I immediately remembered how I had been mistaken one tiny detail of another game and added it into a similar situation from Wonderboy! lol

Had the same thing happen a month or two ago with Waverace 64 and Ridge Racer.
When the announcer said "Allright everyone, one minute to go, etc", I could have sworn that was in Waverace, but since I started playing the Japanese N64 version about 10 years ago after importing it since that one is 60Hz with smaller borders, I thought it might be something that wasn't in the Japanese version and was added in later in the western version, but nope. It was actually from Ridge Racer...
But enough of the easy days of dementia setting in for me.

I'm nr.2 in the worldwide leaderboards for now, but I'm sure by tonight I won't even be in the top 20.

I really wish that we'd get a classic arcade game every single week in the style of the Neo Geo releases.
These come out so slow.

Also I was just looking up the price for Urban Trial Playground since it comes out in May and the only physical version I heard about was the Japanese one.
But Play-Asia seems to have a preorder up for a EU edition as well as an Asia release.
Really hope this is confirmed soon as I'm really in the mood for a good Trials game after the last one let me down quite a bit.

SUPER BOMBERMAN R is discounted to Β£25 digitally. I bought it full price - physically - at launch and would say at that price it might be worth a punt. Plus, I need folks to play online πŸ˜‰

I really like the look of this game that's coming next week.

Gotcha Racing 2

The original on 3DS received an 8/10 on here.

"Gotcha Racing is a deceptively complex, addicting racer with a maddeningly addictive collection and upgrade system. Iterating on your car to make it the best it can be is an endless, joyful pursuit. It distills the most complex elements of sim-style racers down into a simple, enjoyable formula that works on every level."

The sequel looks to be even bigger and better and it has online racing and leaderboards too. Nothing about a European release yet but it will cost $9.99 in the US.

Anyone about tonight, fancies an online game or two?

I'll likely be on within the hour. So 9:30--10ish UK time.

[Edit] heading online now if you fancy playing anything like ROCKET LEAGUE, PUYO PUYO TETRIS, ARMS, MARIO KART 8 DELUXE, SPLATOON 2 (Turf War or Salmon Run is open), SUPER BOMBERMAN R or anything else. Let me know in here πŸ‘

@Lroy I've been lowered 2 pay grades in only 6 games. :-/
I wonder what some people are doing.
I mean, why charge into the enemy when you have fireflies around you on a dark night?
They should lead the enemy away so others can protect them instead of going on a suicide mission.

How does it look?

My marker pen slipped when I was colouring the wooden edges and put a small mark on the Switch logo. That will annoy me now. It is only on the white border though, I can take the sticker off easy and then cut round the logo, but getting the rounded edges will be tricky. The stickers are quite thick.
