    Hey all

    Yep, the game has been awarded a perfect 10 from Edge. Certainly never an easy feat, especially if like me you've been a reader of the magazine since the 90's.

    Here are a couple of quotes from the review.......

    'Odyssey already feels like the spiritual successor to Mario 64 we never quite got, before a thrilling final throwback'

    'Odyssey is a new entry in a long running series that belies its age with sprightly invention, taking big risks with an established formula and having them all pay off handsomely'

    Must admit I've been holding out on purchasing a Switch since it was released, think this will be the game that changes that :D

    I think the question that everyone is really asking is when are we going to get another Gex game?

    Seriously, buy a Switch. It's a great games console. I use mine more than any other system and I own.

    I'm very close to selling up the PS4 now. It'll fund another Switch to keep the Miss away from mine.

    @Devilligan

    Hi fella, I'm definitely going to! For the last couple of years, me and the wife have been saving up for a deposit on a property. As a result my gaming needs have been shelved. Tbh, I don't think she wouldn't have been impressed much if I'd rolled in one evening with a new gadget....

    Must admit, the Switch is the first Nintendo console I haven't picked up since the Super Famicom. Mind you, that will be put right very soon :lol:

    Definitely be worth it just for this game alone. It's the main reason I bought one as Im not a massive Zelda fan. I can't wait to start crying as I play it.

    @HarryB Yeah, they're not great trade in items, but I hardly use the thing anymore. I've not bought a full game this year, I don't think. Is still handy as a Bluray player, but I'd rather have complete access to my Switch. My Miss has clocked 25 hours on Stardew Valley already. That's 25 hours in which I couldn't play on it.

    Zinio don't have the latest issue yet. I wish I hadn't bought a 2 year subscription this summer. They aren't usually this bad though.

    That has got to be hands down the worst video game song I have ever heard. It makes me want to tear my ears off and shove them up my own arse.

    Itís so miserable. Usually they put a bit of effort in. This cover just looks like something they found floating around the art department.

    It mentions that it's better on the TV with the joy-con separated. Personally, I don't want to go anywhere near motion controls or the like, so hoping the controls are just as seamless for normal controller set up/handheld.
