    Is the fighters pass worth getting for Super Smash Bros Deluxe, only bought the game yesterday so not really had a good go on it yet?

    Cheers all

    The first character has been announced, but no release date. No details on other characters yet.

    Darksiders 1 is coming, 24.99 (too much imo) and getting a physical release too.

    Great game if you haven't played it



    2nd of April. Have to imagine DS2 will come too as it was out on the Wii U

    Thinking of picking up snipperclips but not sure how many levels there are and how many hours you can get out of it.

    Looking to play it with a 8 year old as she loved the demo

    Hi all,

    hopefully going to pick up a Switch this month. From looking around the best deal I can see is £310 for the console and Zelda which is the first game I would like to play. Has anyone seen any better deals around? Buying the console and game separately is more expensive (cheapest console is £280 and cheapest Zelda new is £47).

    Thanks :)

    Be sure to check the members market if you have access. I got Zelda for £28 there from a fellow member. That seems to be the going rate for Switch games second hand

    I’ve been keeping my eye over the last few weeks for games to see what prices they are selling for. Haven’t seen Zelda pass through yet though. Someone sold a Switch on the MM on Monday for a fantastic price however I was too indecisive and it was snapped up.

    I’m really keen on picking up a switch!
    Just a little worried if Nintendo will be bringing out a updated version this year?

    As there’s rumours flying around.

    What do you guys think?

    Doubtful, if anything a cheaper handheld only model.

    These things are selling very well.

    I backed out because the bundles are really poorly priced. I saw BT had the grey + Mario Odyssey case for £259 but someone bought the last one while i slept on it. That would of been with Mario from Amazon at £39.99.


    What beefs me is thats not the real price of a bundle either because you need Nintendo online and an SD card and a lan adapter and now were at the £350+ range easily with maybe a single game? Thats the reason they just said they are not going to hit 20m units this year. Its because of the rubbish bundles taking up half the internal 32gb and the Nintendo online patches filling the rest.

    I would say now wait until the 3rd March to see what anniversary deals pop up. But for sure there is another model in the works thats what gives me hope maybe a 1080p LED or AMOLED? And they need to revise Tegra anyways because not only is it running at half speed and underclocked but it keeps getting cracked. I think this is why they said thier focus was on the Switch for now but now they will not hit thier target and 7.00 being cracked withing hours might leave them in the position to upgrade. If it were me it would be on either the second or third anniversary so 3rd March 2019 or 2020.

    So handheld March 2019, Switch Pro March 2020 sound about right?

    The latest rumor I had seen with regards to a 'pro' console was that it wouldn't be released this year now. There were rumors it would be as early as the summer however that looks to have changed.

    That is just speculation. It's a fantastic console as it is. If you want one, just get it. :)

    I'm using one because I have an earlier Switch with a rubbish WiFi chip. So I got it to reduce latency for Smash Bros online. The difference itself isn't so much in connection speed (unless your router is very far away!) But more a reduction in packet loss and latency.
