    Not for £23. I can find a second hand Mario game for not much more.

    It's so much better than Mario deluxe, it's right up there with rayman legends and donkey kong tf if you like platformers.

    I grabbed it after being interested years ago but not fancying the price at all. Only played a bit and it is clearly really well made, looks great and controls very well. I dont have much nostalgia for this era of platformer of which it takes its inspiration from so not sure how far I will get but so far it's good fun

    I've never played on a NES for more than 30 minutes as the games all control horribly, but this plays nothing like them.

    True. Just a lot of the praise I heard around this stemmed from reviewers etc comparing it to NES Era games, so I wasn't sure if I would enjoy it as I've never really enjoyed those. Like yourself I've now played this more than I ever had any of those so that's a good sign.

    Picked up Steamworld heist too as that sale ends today, probably wont play for a while

    That's a brilliant game. Don't save scum though.

    PLUGIN15 gets you 15% off on eBay today so I went ahead and got a Switch with Mario Kart for £237! Bank Holiday weekend though so probably won't land until next week.

    Realm Royale has dropped for the switch, yes another BR game but if you’ve been put off by fortnite/building then this could be for you.

    Played on PC and enjoyed it, looking forward to giving it a blast on the go!

    I did the same, was surprised to get the dispatch notification through an hour afternoon I ordered. Mines due to come on Tuesday.

    Anyone able to recommend a case and a screen protector? And anything else that’s useful to have?

    Take a look at ORZLY on Amazon. Their stuff is pretty good value, e.g. £6.49 for two glass screen protectors, £9.68 for a case, or £21.99 for a bundle of accessories.

    The official cases are decent too, but expensive when not on offer.
