    @mickerty We're dodging votes for retail games as they're a bit easier to find. I'll add your vote to Celeste, though!

    @TSR999 this is really good. Would be cool if the titles were hyperlinks to the meta critic or official game page (or even the EG review if existing?).

    This is such a good idea.

    @DangerousDave_87 makes perfect sense to me!

    Thanks!

    thanks so much - tbh i've been slowly (slowly) working away at it - partly to bone up on some slightly stale skills.

    I really need to get v0.2 out :)

    So.

    Here's v0.2

    http://tsnert.alixandalex.com/games/

    I've updated it up to this post.

    I'd like to extend it for other data driven threads (eg 50 games etc), but there's a fair bit of work still to do. I may even implement forum search....

    Ideas and suggestions more than welcome. As I said before it's as much about me keeping my hand in.

    @DangerousDave_87 - i've sent you assorted stuff.

    Probably a bit late to suggest, but would be interesting to see the total number of votes as well as the overall score. A 0 with no votes would be different to a 0 because of 5 +s and 5 -s that way.

    @Duffking if you click on the row you get that and all the comments (many of which are yours :)) .

    I'm also updating it to show that on the front page
    (and it's sorted by score and number of votes)

    I also have the workings of a marmite sort (score closest to zero with most votes)

    Next bit is some of those things, general game info, sorting out the admin pages a bit more. Search, filtering by platform etc...

    @TSR999 Cheers again. I haven't had much of a chance to look yet, but I'll try and get to it tomorrow. :)

    @TSR999

    I think you may need to access it via a PC to get all that functionality. Using my phone I have a list with 3 categories to sort by and there are no links within the table.
  • Deleted user 24 September 2018 14:13:12
    @PazJohnMitch it works on my phone (and on desktop) - atm there are only 3 columns, but each row is a link:

    Maybe it is just iOS that is rubbish.
  • Deleted user 27 September 2018 12:46:07
    It wasn't - It's my crappy code.

    Either way. I've updated it, and it should now work better.

    +1 for Picross S2

    It does not offer much different to S1 but the puzzles are a bit more challenging which I like.

    @TSR999 Right! I've not been using the laptop and haven't been giving this thread the attention it deserves. I'll update the original post with a link to the web project tomorrow and remove the Google doc link. Great work with putting this all together! This is awesome!

    Dead Cells is superb, isnít it? I havenít been able to put it down.
  • Deleted user 2 October 2018 11:24:29
    @DangerousDave_87 cool!

    I've gone and got a domain:

    http://www.egds.org.uk/games/

    so can you use that?

    Also i've updated it with the latest comments / votes.

    once i've sorted out ssl i'll open it up so people can add their own.

    @TSR999 The link has been updated. It looks great, both on the laptop and mobile! This is so much better than what I tried doing. I know how big an ache it'll be, but if we can get links to trailers in there, it'll be pretty much perfect!

    Cheers again for doing this. I'm glad you stepped in. I've been incredibly distracted lately and haven't been giving the project the time it deserves. I'm really hoping things settle down at some point soon.

    Great work bud. You have Fast RMX twice though (it was also Fast Racing Neo - one is Wii U title, pretty sure itís latter.)

    Iíll have a look through what I said before later and add my ratings. Yokuís definitely getting a chuck up, it was glorious.

    Hoping you eShop experts can help: I'm looking for a new Switch game for dipping into sporadically on holiday. I REALLY want Hollow Knight but feel like I might want a game that isn't too tough, as it's going to be the definition of casual play...

    Has Dead Cells been patched yet? I heard it runs awfully on Switch - but love the look of it

    Hollow Knight would possibly suit you more casually than Dead Cells to be honest, which hasn't been patched yet.

    What do you already own? Favourite genres?

    @Duffking Sorry, I really could have been a bit more specific with my post!!!! Love all the usuals like Zelda and Mario Kart. Celeste is one of my favourite games in years - I do love platformers on the Switch (except for Donkey Kong - I've no idea why that was so popular) - and I've really enjoyed Yoku and Flinthook.

    Shame about Dead Cells. Maybe I will get Hollow Knight after all - it looks wonderful.

    Dead Cells has been patched.

    It ran absolutely fine before that too (there was just the occasional odd judder when it was loading in music or something).

    I really reccomend it as a 'dip in and out for a quick blast' game.

    There is no performance patch yet, it's slated for November. The only patch has been to fix some bugs.

    It really doesn't run just fine - it's playable, sure, and I've beaten it a few times. But in every zone after the first, it hovers inconsistently from 40 to 50 frames per second (which is the problem - not that it's not 60, but that it fluctuates so bloody much). There was also the random semi-freezes where from one frame to the next it would teleport you about 2-3 meters.

    Actually, they did at a 30fps lock option for now which probably helps with the inconsistency thing.

    Hmmmmm, decisions..... Wish Dead Cells were a little cheaper - then my tight self would just buy that and Hollow Knight

    @Duffking

    Fair enough. I saw there had been a patch. I haven't completed it, so don't really know about any issues later on in the game.

    First 3 or 4 levels seemed to run great to me, apart from maybe a little slowdown when things get really hectic (I can live with that).

    (It is a really good game anyway. Hollow Knight is great too, but it is much more of an epic endevour in the Dark Souls mould than a "quick blast" game.)

    Honestly, though I personally prefer HK, I would say DC is the better 'dip in and out' type game. HK benefits from being really focused and absorbed in its world.

    DC absolutely doesn't run *awfully* on Switch. It could be better, for sure, but it's still incredibly playable and has a great feel. That said I've only got maybe halfway through it, as I dropped it for HK. :)
