  1. Nintendo Switch (new console)

    I download everything now but I have cartridges for Zelda, MK8 and ARMS.
  2. I think this team merged with the leftovers of the Seraphim and I left also
  3. Dragonball Fighterz

    I'm sure this open beta would be fun if I could actually play against somebody. How has everybody else got on with it? The username I created for it Xbox One was NB96. Comes out January 26th.
  4. Dragonball Fighterz

    I think SonicFox made a tier list on YouTube with 16 and Cell as the best, with Hit close too.
  5. What games are you currently playing?

    I heard it was good too but also has lots of bugs and is very dialogue heavy. Also a very long prologue. I barely got out of the cave in Skyrim at the start before I got bored and didn't play it again back on Xbox 360. Also I got stuck at a glowing green ghoul in Fallout 4 which made me quit that too so maybe those open world RPGs aren't my kind of game. I just downloaded Bayonetta for Switch and it gives you a 37% discount of Bayonetta 2. I didn't get to play either but I liked Devil May Cry as a kid so hopefully this will be just as good. They are level based games as far as I know so hopefully that will lend itself towards playing portable as well if the evels are no more than 15 mins or so each.
  6. Super Mario Odyssey

    Releases worldwide October 27th, 2017 on Nintendo Switch. Trailer from E3: Sand Kingdom & New Donk City Gameplay: According to the Express, it got a perfect score from Edge, and 39/40 from Famitsu (some Japanese publication). The Express also describes the Sand Kingdom boss as one of the best ever in a Mario game (source: http://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/gaming/858944/Nintendo-Switch-games-news-preview-Super-Mario-Odyssey-boss-Sunshine). http://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/gaming/868378/Nintendo-Switch-update-news-Super-Mario-Odyssey-video-capture-pre-order-Zelda-4-0-0 This game needs a thread. It is going to be special, I can feel it. I simply cannot wait, I was thinking of asking for this for my birthday in December but I don't have the strength to resist so I will have to get it on release. It's a slightly rushed OP but w/e.
  7. Super Mario Odyssey

    I spent an hour or so getting the last 60 moons I needed to reach 999 moons since I heard you got a reward for doing it. What a shitty reward it is, though. Oh well, still a great game.
  8. Black Panther

    Looks to be a pre-Civil War setting to me. I think it looks pretty good although I'm not too sure about their choice of music.
  9. UEFA Champions League 2017/18

    The UEFA Champions League draw for 2017/18 season takes place today at 17:00 BST at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. The managers of each of the 5 english sides in the competition have now completed a minimum of one season at their respective club, meaning that managers like José Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, Jürgen Klopp and Antonio Conte will no longer have any excuse for a poor showing after having had a chance to build their team with two summer transfer windows. With the astronomical amounts of money now in the English game, English clubs are expected to perform better in the competition now moreso than in the last 5 years or so. Below are the seedings for each pot and the country the club represents. Pot 1 contains the title holders and the champions of the top seven associations based on their 2016 UEFA country coefficients. As the title holders, Real Madrid, are one of the champions of the top seven associations, the champions of the association ranked eighth are also seeded into Pot 1 (regulations Article 13.05). Pots 2, 3 and 4 contain the remaining teams, seeded based on their 2017 UEFA club coefficients. In each group, teams play against each other home-and-away in a round-robin format. The group winners and runners-up advance to the round of 16, while the third-placed teams enter the 2017–18 UEFA Europa League round of 32. The matchdays are 12–13 September, 26–27 September, 17–18 October, 31 October – 1 November, 21–22 November, and 5–6 December 2017. A total of 32 teams play in the group stage: 22 teams which enter in this stage, and the 10 winners of the play-off round (5 from Champions Route, 5 from League Route). Qarabağ and RB Leipzig will make their debut appearances in the group stage. Pot One: Real Madrid (ESP) FC Bayern München (GER) Juventus (ITA) Chelsea (ENG) Benfica (POR) Shakhtar Donetsk (UKR) AS Monaco (FRA) Spartak Moscow (RUS) Pot Two: Barcelona (ESP) Atlético Madrid (ESP) Paris Saint-Germain (FRA) Borussia Dortmund (GER) Sevilla (ESP) Manchester City (ENG) Porto (POR) Manchester United (ENG) Pot Three: Napoli (ITA) Tottenham Hotspur (ENG) Basel (SWI) Olympiacos (GRE) Anderlecht (BEL) Liverpool (ENG) Roma (ITA) Beşiktaş (TUR) Pot Four: Celtic (SCO) CSKA Moscow (RUS) Sporting CP (POR) APOEL (CYP) Feyenoord (NED) Maribor (SLO) Qarabağ (AZE) RB Leipzig (GER) Arguably it is preferable to be in Pot Two rather than Pot One this year. Who do you support, and what would be your ideal group stage draw?
  10. UEFA Champions League 2017/18

    Wonderful comeback by Spurs. The Premier League is easily the best league in the world right now.
  11. Black Panther

    I think this is out now (at least in the UK my local cinema has it on screen today). I've heard the film is good (and has a high Rotten Tomato score fr what it's worth) but that it has some SJW/politically correct elements to it (much like Star Wars The Last Jedi). Has anybody seen it yet?
  12. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    Bournemouth 3-0 Chelsea, now Watford 4-1 Chelsea. They are in free-fall and at serious risk of losing their top 4 position.
  13. The Premier League 16/17 season saw Antonio Conte’s Chelsea run away with the title but the competition is sure to heat up this year with all top 6 managers having now completed their first full season with their squad. Who will win the league this season? Signings: Arsenal: Alexandre Lacazette, Sead Kolašinic Chelsea: Ethan Ampadu, Tiemoué Bakayoko, Willy Caballero, Álvaro Morata, Antonio Rüdiger Liverpool: Mohammed Salah, Andrew Robertson Manchester City: Bernardo Silva, Ederson Moraes, Kyle Walker, Danilo, Benjamin Mendy Manchester United: Victor Lindelöf, Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matić Tottenham Hotspur: N/A 16/17 Season Review Antonio Conte’s Chelsea side marched to victory in the league after making a change in system accelerated by the 3-0 defeat at the Emirates which exposed the frailties in Conte’s initial 4-1-4-1. New signing and 15/16 league champion N’Golo Kante helped Chelsea’s counter-attacking style by acting as a ball-winning midfield alongside Serbian Nemanja Matić to initiate counter-attacks quickly. A rejuvenated Victor Moses and new signing Marcos Alonso functioned as the essential wing-backs to make forward runs in behind defenders, or make space for Pedro, Diego Costa and Eden Hazard. However, an inability to sign key targets such as Alex Sandro as well as the sale of Nemanja Matić to Manchester United have left Conte disappointed at his club’s transfer activity so far. Mauricio Pochettino established himself as one of the best coaches in the league this season after leading Tottenham to a second place finish, and the first time the club has ended the season above bitter London rivals since the 94/95 season. The brilliant pair of Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweirld formed the backbone of the strongest defense in the league, while full-backs Kyle Walker and Danny Rose allowed Spurs to move their play wide and make overlapping runs for Cristian Eriksen and Son Heung-min, who were given freedom to make runs inside. However, the club has made no signings so far this Summer, and with most other top 6 clubs strengthening it may become more difficult for Tottenham to challenge this coming season. Pep Guardiola's Manchester City were the favourites going into the season. Signing Claudio Bravo, Leroy Sané, İlkay Gündoğan, Nolito, Gabriel Jesus, and Oleksander Zinchenko (who subsequently left on loan), Guardiola transitioned City's style of play into a possession based team using passing channels and slow build-up play to help dominate and break down the opposition. After a disappointing league campaign finishing 3rd, as well as losing in the FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal, fourth round EFL Cup knockout against bitter city rivals Manchester United and a Champion's League last 16 defeat at the hands of Leonardo Jardim's brilliant AS Monaco, Pep Guardiola will be sure to reinvest heavily this Summer to ensure a more successful season. Guardiola has fuelled further speculation by stating that his squad needs a “little more” to compete on all fronts after an initial five signings. Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool have once again finished in the top four after doing so in 13/14 thanks to the heroics of Luis Suárez. Klopp's exciting "heavy metal football" resonated with the Anfield faithful who seek return to the glory days of the 80's. Playing fast attacking football with a high line and high press, Liverpool would win the ball further up the pitch and quickly overload the opposition. Liverpool showed they are as good as anyone in the league with an excellent record vs the top six, but a potential title challenge was halted by inconsistent form against the lower half of the table. Following the sale of Neymar to Paris St. Germain, Barcelona have a large transfer war chest to spend on Borussia Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele and Liverpool’s Phillipe Coutinho who has reportedly already agreed personal terms with Barcelona. Arsène Wenger remains in a job after a horrendous 16/17 season which saw his Arsenal side finish outside Champion's League qualification for the first time in 20 years. Despite an FA Cup win, the season was one of Wenger's worst and calls for his resignation had been louder than ever. However, having signed a 2-year extension it would seem Arsenal fans have become resigned to another season under his leadership. Having signed left-back Sead Kolašinac and striker Alexandre Lacazette, Wenger may turn his attention towards Leicester City's Algerian winger Riyad Mahrez who has requested a transfer from the club following a disappointing season when compared to his 15/16 performance, or OGC Nice’s Jean Michaël Seri. Mahrez, however, has also been linked heavily with a move to AS Roma. Despite strengthening, Wenger may still find it difficult to keep talisman Alexis Sanchez who seems determined to leave the club and move to Manchester City. A horror contract situation whereby Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Özil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all have 12 months or less left on their contracts has also been described by Wenger as “ideal” for generating competition in the squad… Manchester United - now managed by José Mourinho - enjoyed a successful season, winning the EFL Cup and Europa League to qualify for the Champion's League's Pot B. Despite a disappointing league campaign in which a plethora of draws stalled his side to a 6th place finish and an FA Cup last 8 defeat at the hands of Antonio Conte's Chelsea, Manchester United fans are satisfied with the season and feel the rot has been stopped after three painful seasons following the Sir Alex Ferguson era. The pressure is now on for Mourinho to mount a challenge for the league title thanks to the financial muscle of the club which has allowed them to spend upwards of £75m on former Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, and £35m on Swedish Benfica centre-back Victor Lindelöf. A failure to sign French striker Antoine Griezmann following Atletico Madrid's transfer ban this Summer, as well as Internazionale’s Ivan Periŝić had held up Mourinho's transfer plans. However, the recent signing of Nemanja Matic (£35m + £5m) will surely add balance and discipline to Mourinho’s midfield, allowing Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera to play in more advanced positions. 17/18 table predictions: 1 Manchester City 2 Manchester United 3 Chelsea 4 Tottenham Hotspur ------------------------------------------------------- 5 Liverpool 6 Arsenal ------------------------------------------------------- 7 Everton 8 Southampton 9 Leicester City 10 West Bromwich Albion 11 Bournemouth 12 West Ham United 13 Stoke City 14 Burnley 15 Newcastle United 16 Crystal Palace 17 Watford -------------------------------------------------------- 18 Swansea City 19 Brighton & Hove Albion 20 Huddersfield Town What are your predictions?

  14. Korey McDuffie has died

    Wow didn't this guy win a NAWCQ 2014? What happened?
  15. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    Virgil van Lovren has made literally no difference to Liverpool's defense. I think they might have gotten rinsed by Southampton... 6 years going on 7 without a trophy now, I think. Lol
  16. Dragonball Fighterz

    Wow I didn't know about that. Also I heard their season pass contains 8 characters and is like £30, shockingly expensive. If you're going to ask that kind of money then I want to know exactly what will be in the season pass first so I can decide.
  17. Dragonball Fighterz

    This comes out tomorrow will anybody buy? My Xbox name is zappynick9000 but I don't know if i will buy it because i got upset that I couldn't find a match on the open beta and said I would not to buy the game as revenge but now I don't know if I should break my word or not
  18. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    Congratulations to Alexis Sanchez for joining the biggest club in world football. Best of luck to Henrikh Mkhitaryan on your future endeavors.
  19. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    Spurs lack creativity without Eriksen. Much like us, they sorely need another playmaker imo.
  20. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    He's been plaing for Arsenal though who have been terrible in the last 16 for ages now. Saw images of the double leg break of Everton's McCarthy. Rondon was in tears, I feel sorry for both because it was a freak accident.
  21. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    City are obviously the best in country right now but I think things can change quickly. Chelsea won the league then finished mid table, Leicester fought relegation then won, Real Madrid conquered Europe and are now battling for top 4. Maybe he just wants to work with the manager with the most accolades currently in world football. After all he already worked with Guardiola once and didn't get the best out of him. This is Manchester United after all it's not easy to turn the club down.
  22. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    I've seen so many Arsenal fans say Sanchez left for the money. Go offer him the same wages as us and we'll see who he chooses.
  23. Nintendo Labo

    It's a lot of money, those games ought to be worth £20 each.
  24. Nintendo Labo

    It looks really cool but it should be very cheap to get parents to buy it for their kids imo. They will also need to make plenty of games based around using it too. It may end up being like the Xbox Kinnect if it doesn't entice the kiddies. In fact I think they should sell the compatible games with the Labo itself in a bundle.
  25. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    Looks like Liverpool have ended City's bid to become the new Invincibles. Very entertaining game.
