I didn't realise Elechead was out! That and Blade Runner are getting added to the list, at the very least.

Not only is it out, I've finished it - to completion Jas. Winky Face (It's nippy enough that doing so wasn't a grind in any way, happily.) Still deciding on what to fill its slot with.

Does it have unnecessary collectibles though? Winky Face

It does indeed! Or, well, depends on your definition of unnecessary I suppose.

It's all unnecessary, we shouldn't spend so much time on children's computer games.

Big Tournament Golf (AKA Neo Turf Masters) is down to half price on the eShop for the next few days.

https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-Switch-download-software/ACA-NEOGEO-NEO-TURF-MASTERS-1207830.html

It’s got no right being as good as it is – with how appealing, immediate and utterly gorgeous it is to see and hear, it’s nearly perfect. Absolutely the best golf game of all time, get it bought!

I’ve been enjoying Kirby’s Dream Buffet these last couple of days. It’s not just Fall Guys for porkers, although the general idea and it’s set up is pretty similar. It’s got that same intensity and competitiveness too. I’d imagine there’ll be debate about whether it should be free to play or not, but I’m happy with what I’ve bought for £13.49. To me, it feels quite premium.

I'm certainly interested so I'll probably take the plunge soon, I've been a slack on Nintendo's eShop only efforts on the Switch and I really shouldn't as they were always enjoyable on previous consoles.

Apart from this (obviously), The Stretchers (don't), some largely shrugworthy Pokémon Company stuff, and I think Dedede's Drum Dash, what else has Nintendo released eShop-only on Switch? I'm drawing a blank. Eh?

There’s a fair few, like Boxboy & Boxgirl, Part Time UFO, Snipperclips and Kirby Fighters. Of Nintendo’s recent eShop stuff Good Job is an easy recommendation from me, I thought it was really creative, well-made and overall great fun. Conversely, Flip Wars is the sort of thing that they shouldn’t be charging money for – fair enough if it was a freebie with a Switch Online subscription, but I reckon it’s the most missable Nintendo game ever.

Boxboy + Boxgirl is the one for me, I loved the 3DS games and Part Time UFO is another I'm eager to play, Good Job too.

I did remember Snipperclips, and I guess it's in the same boat as The Stretchers (and I think Little Nightmares 2?) where Nintendo published a smaller company's work. Same with Part-Time UFO, although obviously they added in some Kirby bits to that so it feels more Nintendo (also it's better). Boxboy is one I totally forgot after the original game left me cold.

LN2 is Bamco and would say it's an AA game with a physical etc.

My second game of the sixth year of the Switch is getting DLC. This is tremendous news.

...c'mon gents, somebody else play Nobody Saves the World. It's really good! Gents?

It's called Nobody Saves the World for a reason.

Second-best game I've played in this, the sixth year of the Switch!  Then again, it's not been the best year for me...

...which is why I'm strongly considering picking up the GBA Castlevania collection.  Anyone got any suggestions as to which games are best, which I should start on?  I feel like Rum did a rundown, but Forumotion's search function is horrible.

I'm not sure how good Vampire Kiss is, as it's a version of Rondo and only thing I've played in anyway.

I've got that collection just not got around to playing it yet and I'd say just focus on the GBA games and play them in order of release. (Vampire kiss seems like a bonus game they just chucked in tbh)

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance

Cheers folks, will crack on with the GBA titles. Thumbs Up! Er. Maybe. I just bought Tinykin. So might try that first. Shifty

One of the low-key things I’d been looking forward to was the rumoured console port of Clap Hanz Golf from Apple Arcade. It didn’t appear in yesterday’s Western Nintendo Direct but it shadow-released here all the same:

What's eShopping about? - Page 25 Watch?v=7NMIMBb2lck

Easy Come, Easy Golf? Easy Purchase. Everything I’d heard about this was that it was essentially Everybody’s Golf in everything but name. My first impressions are exactly that, albeit with some optional touch controls and an interface that truly tells that it was formerly a mobile phone game. The gameplay is familiarly great though.

The three GBA ones are all good, but if you're only fancying jumping in on one of them then Aria of Sorrow is easily the highlight.

Eh, I've begun at number 1, which the in-game menu confusingly just calls 'Castlevania'. We'll see how it goes! Is there any way to access the manuals in-game?

That's the right way to do it if you plan on checking them all out at least - going back to the first two after Aria would be difficult!

I genuinely can't remember - I've got it on PlayStation and pressing the big middle button seems to stick out in my mind, but I could be wrong.

Circle of the Moon was just called Castlevania in Europe, little surprised in the collection it isn't called CotM as in the states it was

Fire Emblem also comes to mind, the first here just called Fire Emblem or I've seen it called Fire Emblem GBA where it's actually The Blazing Blade.
