    As an older (37) gamer, I continue to be boggled at his cosmetics and other pointless frivolities have become both big business and reasons to stop playing a game.

    Don't get me wrong, I like my Imp Mercy skin, but I thought we played games for the game, not to play dress up.

    Well yes, have you seen how much they charge for the iOS versions of their back catalogue? Ouch!

    I don't need a proper controller enough to be willing to suffer with a handful of games vs my real favourite as that never seem to make it. For what it's worth, I logged the overwhelming majority of my Genesis/Sega CD addiction on an ASCIIPad SG-6, not an official Sega one.

    As an aside: the dpads on newer Nintendo systems just don't feel right vs the old NES and SNES controllers. I think the N64 is the last one I have that feels good - the Wii, WiiU and 3DS all feel clicky and off.

    I feel the same here... I wanted to love Stardew Valley but it felt like being pulled in ten directions at once and the seasonal nature of it all made it feel like you didn't want to miss your chance to get certain items (like for the community centre stuff) but that wasn't always compatible with what was being asked of you elsewhere, never mind just making money to expand your farm.

    After a bit of this, I just gave up. It didn't help that I had a farm going in the SNES original on the Wii, another in the spectacularly grindy New Beginning on the 3DS, the far more realistic Farm Simulator 2017, the hardcore Wurm Online, AND Starbound. I guess I was being pulled in too many directions in real life, too.

    It would be fun if there was a way for the Switch to work as the WiiU Gamepad when playing WiiU games on your TV... I mean, maybe this is already a thing, but it's essential for many of the WiiU's games.

    Also, hope you can transfer saves in Minecraft from WiiU to Switch.

    Microsoft's support is absolutely superb. Due to Forza Horizon 3 on PC being a buggy piece of crap, I wasted hours getting it working and dealing with the issues. After one crash too many (during a video cutscene, no less!) I applied for a refund and it was granted. I immediately put the credit towards Gears 4. Microsoft are really trying and it is really appreciated in convincing people!

    Uniforms in looking uniform non-shocker.

    Also, whining about "there's more holidays than Christmas" with the amount of stuff Lunar New Year got? Really?

    Tales from the Borderlands bored me. As an avid, old school adventurer (Sierra and Lucasarts and Infocom) I found that I was sitting and watching cutscenes filled with mediocre writing and animation. The few sequences where you could actually walk around and look at stuff were over almost before they began.

    That it's held up as the best just convinces me to not bother with any of the others - I've tried a few demos and in every instance it seems like Telltale can take any franchise and make it *boring*. Wallace and Gromit, Sam & Max. Guardians of the Galaxy was one of the best and most fun films of recent memory and I'm sure they'll find a way.

    Life is Strange was vastly superior in my opinion.

    @Nazo That would be true, except I was sufficiently switched off by the Xbox One to buy a gaming PC again instead. Would not want to pay almost a grand just so I can play in Microsoft's walled garden again as opposed to with my nicely modded PC games.
