@Agent721 Perfect! @oorwullie and whoever else is joining in. What we gonna do? Some racing and some battle mode. Is that easy to set-up? Again, not been online with buddies in MK8 Deluxe for a while.

@Lroy

I’ve only played the multiplayer online races, but I can do battles as well. I’m not sure how you set it up with friends, but I assume it’s easy to do. Probably a code share or something similar?

@Shiryu wow that's some serious score, I'll have to catch you up!
BTW, did you/anybody notice any crash playing Steredenn? I've experienced a few ones (3/4) in the last couple of days... well it could be my luck as always

I was just going through Rami's Twitter posts to see if there was any mention of Switch support yet and...

OMG OMG OMG!

@meppi64 still a little dubious about a switch port of NT, but it would be RAD (bad pun intended )
But just look at the plethora of cool GM games that could be ported... man, it's amazing...

@RetroGamerAndrew It is not you, it only happened to me once when I picked up the Super Shotgun. The devs are aware of these random exits to the Switch OS and a patch is on the way.

@Shiryu Good to hear, those middle-of-the-run crashes aren't nice.
Just grabbed a copy of DU3 after your review, can't wait to play it later today

I played it for an hour this morning, and it seriously rocks. Looks amazing in handheld TATE mode, too.

I also picked up 1945 Strikers II, and man do I suck. Couldn't even finish it on Monkey difficulty on one continue. I need to practice!

@ArtheXavier Yeah Strikers is pretty difficult IMO. The whole aircraft seems to be the hitbox, which is quite a big area. For an easier Psikyo game try Gunbird.

I will download it once I get home from work. Thank for the recommendation!

Still haven't started playing Blazing Star yet for the competition. And now Danmaku is out as well...
Way too many games to play! I can't even keep up with the Switch releases that I want, let alone other systems.
I think I should be good to play some Mario Kart tonight as well.

I was just thinking how I missed a good Nintendo magazine after NGamer was closed.
Then I remembered about Nintendo Force. Went to look on their site and you can but all the previous digital magazines now for $25. That's 31 magazines for €25. http://www.nintendoforcemagazine.com/product/the-five-year-me...
Went to their patrion page and subscribed as well for $3 per new magazine.
Gonna have a look at Switch Player as well since it's only $2 per magazine on patreon.

No Blazing Star for me either, been sick for two days and mostly played a little bit of Steredenn and a pinch of MK8. I won't be able to play that much untill friday either (band reharsal on Thursday and I have to get on par with our playlist) but I'll definitely be up for some MK8 after (starting from 11PM GMT+1).

On a side note, if somebody was looking for an AMAZING book about good old NEO-GEO times I'd like to report that Bitmap Books' wonderful work (https://www.bitmapbooks.co.uk/products/neogeo-a-visual-history) will be back in stock in April. I'll definitely grab a copy myself!

@RetroGamerAndrew Oh I really want that one as well.
Had to let the first print pass me by as I had to be careful what to spend at the time due to some health issues as well as my Switch addiction.

@RetroGamerAndrew

I saw that they’re republishing that book as well. I own the C64, NES & SNES books they put out and they are superb. After playing so many Neo Geo games with our arcade challenge crew, I think I will pick it up this time around.
