@JohnnyShoulder Yeah it does indeed suck since Nintendo games are too expensive to begin with. At first I thought Nintendo was going to price their Switch games around €50 as a middle ground between console and handheld prices (€40 for 3DS games, €60 for Wii U games) since the system is a hybrid. That does not seem to be the case anymore now.

Well at least I got those bonus gold points to cover the increased costs.

@KratosMD Well done on the unexpected win. I would never win anything. Unless it is rage quitting Bloodborne DLC. I am doing well at that.

With regards to Nintendo pricing, to be honest, digital prices are horrendous and there are never really worthwhile price drops. My biggest annoyance though is 3DS prices. Apart from their Select titles, other games just don't drop in value, even second hand. Majora's Mask 3d is still over £30. Moan over.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

@KratosMD I just remembered that BOTW was always €69.99 on Switch. I got a physical copy for the Wii U at launch for €50...

@Rudy_Manchego I dunno I think there has been some good sales in the UK eshop. I picked up Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze and Mario v Rabids for decent prices.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

@JohnnyShoulder Sorry to clarify, I mainly mean first party. I haven't seen Donkey Kong drop much over £30 though I might have been unlucky.

@Rudy_Manchego Can't think how much I paid for it, but I may have used some points to bump the price down a bit.

Anyone else getting into Mario Maker 2 on the Switch? It’s great fun! Would be cool to swap some courses on here...

@Wesker I dunno, like Dreams I don't know if I have it in me to make stuff. I'd have loved it as a kid though. It does look good, though.

If Mario Maker 2 is like the original, 90% of the levels will be troll levels, gimmick levels, or poorly designed levels that spam enemies as a way of hiding the lack of skill on the creator's part.

I'm good. Three Houses launches in a month or so, so that'll be my next Nintendo-published game.

@Wesker I'm sure there will be plenty of level sharing on NL.

@Wesker been playing for hours now and it's so fun, some very very creative people out there. My kids are trying their hand at building courses and it's awesome to watch!

@kyleforrester87 I played Little Big Planet 1 and 2 a lot, but never created anything. It astounds me the amount of talent and creativity out there amongst gamers, and I love to see what they can come up with. I will buy Dreams day 1.

@redd214 I look forward to you sharing your kids’ creations. I will post mine when I can! It’s very inspiring!!!

@Ralizah the standard of the ‘hot’ and ‘popular’ courses are high at the moment in my opinion. I will check NL for sure, but I prefer the community over here.

@Wesker That's what I'm hearing. My nephew is also excited for it.

I decided to just go ahead and use one of my vouchers to download it. Might as well. I sold the Wii U version anyway.

As someone who is pretty terrible at creating levels, I'm really enjoying Mario Maker. The new features add so many new possibilities to the level design, and both the Story Mode and user-uploaded stages are very creative. I'd recommend the game to anyone who's a fan of 2D Mario, whether they intend to build stages or not.

The quality of the user-created content online so far is quite a bit higher in general than what I encountered in the first game.

On the other hand, building levels is a pain, no matter which mode you opt for. Say what you want about Nintendo's Fisher Price-esque GamePad, but the thing was perfect for Mario Maker.

@Ralizah I think that was why I loved Super Mario Maker so much; it was the perfect game for the Wii U hardware.

Creating on your pad, while others in the room could watch and discuss about the level design happening on the telly screen was just brilliant.

Why are people so up in arms about the new Pokemon not having all the Pokemon in it? I get it’s not ideal but is it really that big of a deal? The game looks like a bunch of fun.

@kyleforrester87 I think people are mainly upset due to not being able to transfer most of their Pokémon from the older games to the new one since they won't exist there.

I honestly don't give a crap about all that stuff. I've been playing Pokémon since gen 3 and I don't care about "catching 'em all" or transferring my Pokémon. I already caught them all once in gen 4, I've proved my dedication and if the developers are going to keep adding new Pokémon then you won't really "catch 'em all" ever. I can see though why people would be upset about not being able to transfer their favourite Pokémon. But I don't think people will honestly care once this has become a standard with Pokémon games. There will still be hundreds of Pokémon, just raise some new ones.

People should just stop taking video games so seriously. Everyone in their right minds would've seen this day come, it's simply not sustainable to keep including new monsters in addition to all the old ones. Might as well break this formula as soon as possible, people would rage regardless if it was broken this gen or in five gens. Greediness precedes common sense.
