Feedback, Fallout and Contributions
The (re)learning curve has been executed brilliantly well to get back up to scratch with functions. It’s very pretty but very childish. The enforced 5 minutes at the start is annoying having to wait and read and watch all the clap-trap before you get to actually play at all. The constant text pop-ups are annoying too. Hopefully they go away in time and as you get further in. The gameplay though is super. I got through the first castle now. The controller is a bit annoying using the Switch Lite as the right raised joystick thingie is in the way of my thumb hitting multiple buttons on A, B, X, Y like I used to on the SNES controller. Overall though it’s fabulous, fun and 2D nostalgic. A masterstroke by Nintendo. I think this will sell huge for xmas, especially for Japanese kids.
Jeremy Harpham on Google Chromebook Update Extension
This was mentioned on a recent Tech Addicts podcast, that Google was extending support of various Chromebooks with up to 10 years of Chrome OS updates. I’ve now seen this appear on my Chromebooks under SETTINGS > About Chrome OS > Update Schedule. My Lenovo Duet is now June 2030 and Lenovo Duet 5, the same. My Duet 3 is also showing June 2030
