    Alternate history: N64 goes with CDs instead of cartridges

    in Gaming Discussion on 25 August 2019

    DonFerrari said: Except we have the very big evidence that even during SNES era they lost a lot of exclusiviness and some even jumped ship to Genesis. So it isn't far fetched to imagine that Nintendo would still have lost majorly even with CD. Just look how much fuck they gave to third parties in N64, GC and Wii. We keep pretending Nintendo sole mistake was to chose a...

    Alternate history: N64 goes with CDs instead of cartridges

    in Gaming Discussion on 24 August 2019

    DonFerrari said: I just think it is funny that most seem to be taking a very rose glassed alternative reality option. One where Nintendo having CD would make everything right.Where we could alternatively have a CD on N64, but the rest of the HW because of this decision end up being a Saturn equivalent... See Sega had established brand power, CD, but still couldn't outsell even N64.So Sony...

    Alternate history: N64 goes with CDs instead of cartridges

    in Gaming Discussion on 15 August 2019

    People saying Playstation would have still won are using hindsight. I bought a PS1 (and every iteration afterwards), but the fact was that Nintendo was the king before that generation. It had 3rd party support from all the big publishers (usually having the superior iteration if comparing a multiplat to Genesis' console). All the games that made PS1 so great would have probably been on...

    Hardware First, Software First, Services First: How The Big 3 Sell Their Brands, As I See It

    in Gaming Discussion on 29 July 2019

    I can agree with most things here. I would disagree with the idea of Sony being hardware first/software last. I think they took that approach the last generation and it killed them. This generation, they've been more focused on delivering a balance of all these things (hardware/software/services) which is why they are at the top of their game. While Nintendo constantly focuses on...

    American Animation

    in General Discussion on 29 July 2019

    Jaicee said: Is it possible to delete a thread? I feel like I can already see how people are going to collectively take the OP and that it was a mistake to post it. I wish you didn't delete the initial post, because I think comparing American animation to Japanese animation is a fantastic idea. And even if what you said has a lot of detractors or doesn't make a lot of sense, people...

    Would you have sex with an alien?

    We Need A More Mature Spider-Man Movie

    in Movies Discussion on 23 July 2019

    NightlyPoe said: As you say.  I thought the movie got so much praise because of the experimental animation, artwork, vibrant supporting cast, and cohesive world-building. You'll have a hard time convincing me that the movie would have been hype if it had been forced to rely on Mile's story of the power of believing in yourself mixed with a fun uncle vs. responsibly...

    Snoorlax said: danasider said: Also, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse should be in the poll. It's the best Spider-Man movie, imho, but it doesn't get the type of attention, because it's animated, and it's main protagonist is not the original Spider-Man (although his relationship with the Peter Parker iteration is central to the plot so we get the best of both worlds). Blows away...

    We Need A More Mature Spider-Man Movie

    in Movies Discussion on 21 July 2019

    After seeing screenshots for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, I checked the movie out. I wasn't only pleasantly surprised, but I was blown away. If they made the MCU Spider-Man with this combination of heart, action, charm, and freshness, I could be behind a young Spider-Man. But now, I am pretty much sick of the reboots and high school stories. Also, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse...

    What happened to Sports games?

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 July 2019

    I think as the average gamer age went up, the expectation of sim like sports games became more prevalent. And when companies got the sole right to make a league's sport, all the players were consolidated. Just look at the numbers for Madden, 2k, Fifa, etc. They sell a crap load each year (with secondary games for soccer doing pretty good too, and a mix of results coming from other sports games...

    What was the Greatest Launch Title of all Time?

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 July 2019

    I get that BoTW is probably the best game on the list, but in terms of a launch title, its impact is nowhere near what SM64 accomplished. I lived through both launches. It's not even comparable. So the conundrum is what do we measure "Greatest" by? The best game on the list or the launch title that had most impact. I gotta give it to SM64, because after that game, everything changed. ...

    Can Avengers: Endgame take the #1 spot beating Avatar? ...It just did !!!!

    Yeah, now that it's being rereleased with new footage, it's a matter of when, not if. Avatar, your move (don't think it would have the same impact to be honest with a rerelease like Titanic had or this will, though). ...

    Why haven't they made this obvious game yet?

    in Gaming Discussion on 25 April 2019

    Why haven't they made a good Superman game yet? I'm not even being sarcastic. I know the answer for the most part...bad history with Superman 64, hard to develop a game for super hero that is basically a god, and the DC extended universe (games and movies) have played second fiddle to Marvel for years now. But with the right developer (take Insomniac and how they pulled off Spider-Man), we...

    Is the market ready for a $500 console yet?

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 April 2019

    Zkuq said: It's pretty interesting to see this thread just shortly after seeing a discussion (elsewhere) where people were seriously almost demanding and defending a $700 launch price. I'm sure there is a group of people who would rather pay more money so that the tech used in the next generation of consoles isn't so far behind. That's a fair stance, except that in order for...

    Is the market ready for a $500 console yet?

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 April 2019

    People may make bad comparisons and ignore inflation in some situations. But when purchasing people don't go straight for comparison of previous system plus inflation, they compare to other items they are buying at that period. That is why NES @100, SNES @ 200, PS1 @299, PS4 @ 399 and PS5 @499 could be considered reasonable prices at the time they launched even if PS4 is 4 time more...
