Which is a better game in general if I have no preference for 2d or 3D?
Probably Odyssey. If you're interested in 2d you'd be best just getting Mario Maker IMO

Amazing how much Sunshine is going for these days. I sold mine for £15 a few years ago :(

Also, CEX as a retail outlet tends to inflate its prices because they know people typically set the cost of traded-in products against new products. It's why brand new traded-in games usually cost the same (or more!) as they do brand spanking new - they know you're not paying the same price.

It's also the case for older games because they're usually the only place on the high street selling them.

GAME is their only rival but GAME has higher overheads, hence why it's usually a total rip-off and CEX seems cheap (it's not really).

Can’t wait to get 3D Allstars. It’s not good value in the sense that I’ve played and owned all those games but I WILL sink at least 40 hours in across them all (if not more) and to have them portable will be a huge plus. Galaxy 2 is my favourite amongst those games though so it’s a shame we aren’t getting that

I think it's actually a good thing they're emulated. It means they have gone to the effort of building new emulators for Switch for three consoles. I would hope the reason for this is to make it easier to bring over N64, GameCube and Wii games (particularly when I think we'll see a lot of Zelda re-releases soon).

Suggests we might get VC in the future. Still not holding my breath though. This was probably done so they can port Zelda games next year for its anniversary.

Yeah, I still think it's a much bigger effort to build the emulator than outright port the games. I would think that they have more planned than just a Zelda collection, but yeah, it is Nintendo...

Nintendo do have some quality standards so them building an emulator is more likely just so 3d didn't run and look like shit on HD TVs as thay would affect sales.

Hagi is likely an updated version of Dolphin. Emulators aren't as tricky as people imagine, I've worked on one or two in the past myself, in fact I still have the all the source and SDK for Dolphin here somewhere, it wouldn't take a huge effort (apart from trying to remember after 15+ years :lol:) for me to do the same.

Unless they full remaster, porting games is a similar technique anyway, so building a new emulator in prep for more games released this way (like Zeldas you say) makes a lot of sense.

My 3D all stars is arriving today. I am getting the digital version. Just keeping the disc as maybe one day it might be worth something.

As the PS5 pre order fiasco is taking all the news, ShopTo actually cancelled peoples preorder for it as they did not get enough stock. Did you get yours @esmufc07?

Mine is allegedly too.

However it says by 11pm and even though says it was dispatched yesterday, it's not saying it's out yet today. Going by past performances, that could mean trouble.
Yeah did that to me with the Resident Evil 2 remake so I won't hold my breath.

I'm starting Until Dawn tonight anyway so no rush for this one.

I've also got a couple of glass protectors for phones coming today, and both are pushed to 9pm too. I'm hoping it's to move the packages together, but in reality I know better. That dumb arse depot has fecked it again more likely.

Yeah, not always, but most of the times I've had that with anything it's become an issue.

Mine says the same, and I'm now not confident it or my other packages are coming today.
Just had an email saying out for delivery

I have the same time showing on the app but had an email saying my copy has been delivered so might just be a problem with the app.

I'm using the web, but yeah hopefully it's just the system.

I've had a fair few things go wrong with them lately though, and this is always what happens first. However for so many of us to be getting it, gives me hope.

I’m so excited to play Mario 64 again later, comparing it to Odyssey is a prime example of how no matter how much more polished a game is, it doesn’t make it a better game. It’s incredible how 64 still stands on its own as a great game even today.

I hope it brings you a lot of joy Snowy.

Fingers crossed for you!

I think with mine they've tried to put all orders into one delivery now. I'm getting a time (2-6) but it's all over the place for changing. Like I say, through experience that isn't a good sign.
I've had that problem in the past. I think the amount of deliveries depends on whether its being shipped from the local warehouse or the the national one.

Finally decided to get Xenoblade Chronicles and I’ve really been enjoying it thus far. Happy to see that there’s a part two as well when I get done with this.
