I hope the call from Andy and myself proved this statement wrong. Laughing

Cracking weekend, although I paid the price today. Rough as hell!

Here's some snaps from the weekend:

Top stuff and as fun as I hoped it would be. Cheers for coming, gents.

Aye it was good fun and those are some decent pics as well, after I botched my train home by getting on the wrong 10:26 I ended up travelling back with Mr-JRPG (aka TCK) and I was saying it'd be good for the Scottish half of the meet up to sort a night out soon rather than waiting another year for a forum meet up.

It was a good weekend, next time I think I will drive overnight on the way up as traffic was horrendous in Bristol which was by far the worst area on the motorway heading north, south was fine part from the roadworks which is on both sides to make the M6 a smart motorway (whatever that is).

The barcade was okay but did seem lack games but might just because I have an arcade 20mins up the road with 50+ games in it, that if we go Manchester again we could maybe organise to go to that arcade outside of town Cappa mentioned.

Out of the games, we played I really enjoyed Pac-Man Vs but I do think it would have worked better on Wii U as you need two Switches.

When you say Pac Man Vs. you don't mean the Gamecube freebie do you?

Yeah, that one, which I never played on Cube as you needed three GBA's for the ghosts and the Cube for Pac Man using a controller who uses the TV.

On Switch it's in in the Namco bundle but works the other way around, so you don't need three Switches for each ghost as the ghosts use the TV instead with the Switch being docked and using 3 controllers this time to control the ghost but you still need a second Switch for whoever is Pac-Man as they play undocked.

Where on Wii U the gamepad comes with the console, so Pac Man would use the gamepad and the 3 ghosts would use 3 controllers on the TV making it much easier to get a game as you need less stuff.

That needed for the GameCube version is 1 Cube, 1 TV, 1 game, 1 controller, 3 GBAs, 3 link cables
Switch version needed is 2 Switches, 1 TV, 1 game, 1 game app, 3 controllers for ghosts (they used 3 joy-cons), some sort of control method for Pac-Man (I used my joy-cons attached to Switch), 1 dock
Wii U version if a thing would have needed 1 Wii U + Gamepad, 1 TV, 1 game, 3 controllers

To answer treesmurf: no, it wasn't the GameCube freebie, it was the updated port on Namco Museum for Switch. Bloody hell, masofdas!

Just giving context why I said it would have been better on Wii U than Switch.

Also I thought Smurf was asking if it was a port of the GameCube game seeing I said we played on Switches.

I quite enjoyed that Pac-Man Vs. game, although I wish we hadn't been plagued by sudden lag spikes. Aww!

With the meetup moving into the rear view mirror, this is now unstickied. Thumbs Up!

I do quite like the idea of an updated Pac Man Vs. so good to know it's possible in Switch at least, I never played it but it seems quite similar to Luigi's Mansion Nintendo Land gane which was brilliant.
