    Dragon Quest XI S will have new stories for each party members, and more

    in Nintendo Discussion 9 hours ago

    Wasn't thinking about getting this again so soon, played it on PS4 and PC...twice but with the added content (especially the orchestrated soundtrack) I have to triple dip. As if that wasn't enough the new stories actually fit perfectly into the main game being based off of that cataclysmic event. Never seen a definitive edition add so much content. ...

    Anyone else notice a lot of gaming news channels tend to avoid Nintendo talk?

    in Gaming Discussion on 12 July 2019

    There are channels that talk about Nintendo content and are monetized. One of the bigger ones being Spawn Wave, Yong Yea (just did a video on National Dex with hundreds of thousands of views) and ReviewtechUSA. Hell, Inside Gaming(Formerly known as The Know) just did a video about Nintendo's microtransactions in Dr. Mario World. There are just gaming news networks much like normal news networks...

    Will you switch from Switch to Switch Lite?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 10 July 2019

    Nah, I'll keep my standard Switch. This really does nothing for me but I fully understand why they're doing this. It's going to sell like crazy. I'll just wait until the Pro. ...

    What was the Greatest Launch Title of all Time?

    in Gaming Discussion on 06 July 2019

    Has to be Breath of the Wild for me. Still my 2nd favorite game of all time. I think in terms of innovation, Mario 64 is the easy choice but in terms of overall presentation, playability, etc. Breath of the Wild beats it out. ...

    Has Sony made PlayStation "too Western"?

You do understand that Nintendo didn't just make up the term 'blue ocean'? It's not a PR term at all, it's a specific business strategy term, it has a Wikipedia page explaining how it was invented by French business professors, and is a real...

To say that it isn't 100% in competition with other devices in the same industry is quite foolish. There is overlap. They're game hardware manufactures, by default they're in...

    Has Sony made PlayStation "too Western"?

    in Sony Discussion on 05 July 2019

    Definitely. I don't have an issue with it, it's working out quite well for them. Its how they built their brand. And...because of this yes, they're losing Japanese influence. And I think this is why Sony isn't acknowledging Nintendo as a competitor. However, Nintendo is indeed a competitor westward so I don't know where they're going with that, but in Japan I can see why they'd say that. ...

    I'm glad Nintendo took down Mario Royal. Real fans should just be happy Nintendo cared so much to do it.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 25 June 2019

    http://www.infernoplus.com/royale/#main Welp, looks like Nintendo took down the entire game for good, even with the original assets. Don't know how to feel about this one. There's clones of their games that use original assets that cost money on their eShop. Now this is kind of dodgy. ...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 25 June 2019

    I really have no care what Nintendo does with their IP. They're within their right to protect the use of their IP. Getting angry about it literally does nothing and only makes those complaining about it look childish. The creator of Mario Royale handled it better and more professionally than those who played it originally. I mean if what Nintendo was doing was legally wrong and Super Mario...

    Which early 3D "look" stands up better to you?

    in Gaming Discussion on 24 June 2019

    I don't know but for some reason I prefer the sharp textures that a wealth of PS1 games and Saturn games had. Most notably the RPGs. Grandia, Xenogears, Dragon Warrior VII, Breath of Fire III, IV, Wild Arms 2, etc. had 2D Sprites, but the 3D environments to me benefit more from the clarity of the sprite work than the newer texture style spearheaded by the 64. I'm not necessarily the biggest...

    Should Nintendo use Unreal Engine 4 and Unity in more of their games?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 23 June 2019

    I don't think Nintendo wants to pay royalties to Epic any more than they have to. Their in house engines seem to be built efficiently enough to where games are coming out at a rapid pace so I don't think they need to use these engines. It might save time to learn and use the engines but again Nintendo likes to keep as much profit as they can. ...

    Will Cyberpunk beat Skyrim sales?

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 June 2019

    I don't think so. If we're counting Skyrim as a 360/PS3/XONE/PS4 combined unit we have to remember people HAD to buy upgraded versions on newer hardware. With these upcoming consoles, they'll be backwards compatible out of the box, so no need for remasters of Cyberpunk on the PS5 and Xbox Two. Also, Pokemon RGB I think just edges out Skyrim in sales if we're talking about the genre of the...
