    Awww dang, are you no longer considered an official writer here? That sucks. I really enjoyed reading your stuff. By the way, not trying to rub this in your face, but I really wish you were right about the whole "Nintendo is going to focus on new ips" thing. Although I shouldn't speak so soon, I wouldn't be surprised if in 2020 we get a lot of new stuff.

    Yeah lol it's totally my fault for being so inactive. Once I get my external stuff finished, I'll try to post some articles up once in a while. I had a massive Pokémon article finished a few months back, but I got sidetracked during the formatting phase and never managed to post it. Maybe one day I'll ask if I can get that up!

    As for new IP, I'm honestly not holding my breath anymore.

    Yeah, I'll be excited to hear that! From the perspective of someone who's only finished two titles, I'm curious as to what ideas you have regarding the series.

    Also, just saw that you finally saw ShayMay's video a few months back. I can't believe I saw that reply so late. Glad you enjoyed that video! It's a great channel, it's too bad he doesn't make more videos.

    Have you seen ShayMay's video on Samus Returns? You might like it(although maybe not)

    I'm not familiar with him, but I'll give it a watch! Thanks!

    Yep! It's called "ShayMay Returns" on Youtube!

    This is way late, but I finally got around to watching a ton of his stuff - SO GOOD!!

    Just to let you know, you're in a losing battle on the Dark Souls difficulty thing. I agree with you obviously and I wish I had the willpower you do to go to great lengths to explain it. The thing is, people usually associate multiple options for a product, or ideas that on a surface level seem "pro-consumer" , with greatness immediately, without thinking of the consequences. I can only imagine what this kind of logic would do to a David Lynch film, god forbid.

    < Cloudman posted something on spemanig's wall:

    Oh yeah, I've been wanting to say this for a lil while, but I started watching DB Super, despite saying I had no interest in it, and I gotta say... it's quite great, but not for the reasons I expected. As someone who loved Z, this just turned that completely over its head. It's so quirky and light hearted. It's weird to see, especially with some characters becoming comical. The fight scenes are on the bottom of the list of why I love the show, which.. seems weird to me. I don't really mind it though. The show is still pretty great, though still with some issues I ranted about before with friends.

    I really just can't get into it, but as a dragon ball fan, I'm obligated to follow these character.

    I can see that. Fighting sure does suck overall in Zuper, and the only tricks used that are new aren't very well developed either. The villains kinda suck as well. Seeing as Gohan and Vegeta are your fav characters, I imagine it's not very pleasant to see what happened to them either in the show.

    on 17 July 2017

    Vegeta's development is actually the one of the best things about Super because it's the conclusion to his character arch and shows development. Gohan is too little too late for me.

    on 17 July 2017

    Really? I didn't expect that. I thought it was weird how comical he became in Super, but I didn't mind it. It made him more likable and interesting. Gohan's character after the Cell saga just makes me pretty sad....

    Is the market ready for a $500 console yet?

    in Gaming Discussion 2 days ago

    I think $500 for a console is definitely market ready. $600 and $700 is where people will get angry. ...

    PS5 Confirmed Backward Compatibility

    DonFerrari said: spemanig said: I feel like you're misunderstanding my OP; I wasn't asking for information - I was wondering aloud. I know we don't have much info on the PS5. Individual component parts don't directly correlate to hardware price. Just because the parts are cheap doesn't mean the effect it has on the price of the console will be that same number. $50 less is plenty...

    PS5 Confirmed Backward Compatibility

    in Sony Discussion on 17 April 2019

    DonFerrari said: spemanig said: I only know certain specs, enough to know that it's significantly more powerful than the XBO X. I was musing on how it compares to the PS5 specifically, which isn't known. That's not hard to follow. I don't know how much it would save, but if the box is going to be more expensive than last gen, and digital is overtaking physical, any attempt by Sony...
