Just ordered the Nintendo LABO VR Starter Kit.

Mainly got it for the upcoming Mario & Zelda updates, but the blaster game itself is supposed to be really fun, and I'm sure I'll mess around with the 64 minigames at least for a bit, so I'll probably get my money's worth at least.

I don't at all expect it to stand up against my PSVR (it's aiming for something completely different), but I do hope at least they'll add support for VR YouTube eventually.

Bought My Time at Portia earlier, played about an hour so I’ll give my early impressions.

The pre-release warnings about loading times can be mostly ignored as the game has been patched now. The only long loading time is opening the game but if you’re like me and stick to one game and just use sleep mode you probably won’t have to go through it often.

The character creation tool is flexible but very hard to control, I got the hang of it eventually but it took waaaaay longer then it should’ve. Glad I only have to do that once!

The game itself is pretty. Having come from playing a lot of Stardew Valley it’s nice to have a similar game with a completely different, more ambitious graphical style. The world seems big but I don’t know much about that yet as I’ve not fully explored.

One thing I love is that the player isn’t a silent protagonist. They don’t seem to have a big personality but it’s so nice that there’s a dialogue rather than characters just awkwardly talking at you.

Performance is the only real annoyance for me. The main offender is laggy menus. It’s only a wait of a couple of seconds to open but it doesn’t feel right. There is also a little stutter when chopping trees, it’s not intrusive but I do worry that more stutters might happen during more intense moments like combat.

Overall I’m looking forward to getting more into it, even though there are a few areas it could be improved

Another indulgent pinball related treat to myself, bought the double-pack of Alvin G & Co. tables (Pistol Poker & Al’s Garage Band) for THE PINBALL ARCADE. Only the EM pack left on my wish list for this game.

EDIT: Thought what the hell, also bought the Gottlieb EM table pack. Have all the tables currently available now in THE PINBALL ARCADE on Switch with the exception of the FarSight original Dr. Who table as I’ve only ever heard scathing opinions about it. Oh and Stern’s FLIGHT 2000 is an anomaly that I don’t own as it is packed within one of the Stern table packs and I already own all the other Stern tables in the physical release of STERN PINBALL (was way cheaper to get the tables this way).

So unless FarSight release any more tables, I’ve completed my TPA collection. 👍

I have bought FF X/X-2 HD Remastered Asia English version for Nintendo Switch this afternoon.

I have kissed goodbye my PS4 version of FF X/X-2 HD and World of Final Fantasy. They have been sold quickly by my game shop owner and i traded them with FF X/X-2 HD remastered Switch version.

Next, i will kiss goodbye again for FF XII the Zodiac Age and Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 HD Remix PS4 version to be traded with FF XII the Zodiac Age Switch version and Metroid Prime Federation Force 3DS.

Not really my type of game, but little more than a tenner for a game as beautiful looking as Rayman legends on the eshop, well, it seemed impolite not to.

Currently playing: ACNL, Super Scribblenauts, Story of Seasons, Stardew Valley, Mario Tennis Aces, Overcooked 2, Minecraft

Looking forward to: Overcooked 2 DLCs, Luigi's Mansion 3, Pokémon Sword/Shield

Well my latest purchase is MK11. I plan on getting saints row the third and then bulletstorm. After that I probably won’t purchase anything else until the holiday season assuming there is something worth the purchase. Excited to see what E3 holds for switch gamers like myself.

Time to head back into the kitchen. Picked up the latest DLC ‘Campfire Cook Off’ for OVERCOOKED! 2. One of my fave games to play couch co-op with the other half.

Just ordered a physical copy of Onimusha: Warlords from Amazon Japan. I've always wanted to try the series since the PS2 days, and I've always wanted to import a game from Japan (just because I think it's cool), and since the this HD rerelease is budget priced and has an English option, I figured it was time to bite.

@RR529 Yep, I'm also drawn to the glamorous notion of importing cool **** from Japan, but most of the time the reality of shipping and customs charges is enough to dissuade me. Does getting Japanese imports second hand from a UK seller count, cos I've got a few of those (like Ouendan - all in japanese so bonus points).

Come to think of it, I did import a couple of the Smash branded gamecube controllers directly from Japan (via Amazon UK marketplace admittedly) in the Wii U days. So look at me, I'm a bona fide importer of (semi) cool **** after all!
