    Let's talk about Metroid ( New Poll Added: Super Metroid vs Metroid Prime)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 15 August 2019

    The first Metroid Prime is my favorite game of all time, and was also my introduction to the series. In my earlier days as a fan, I spent my time playing through Prime 1 & 2, and never actually knew 2D Metroid even existed until checked the Wii Shop Channel one day and subsequently found out about Super Metroid. That opened the door to the rest of the series for me. I started playing through...

    How much would you pay for the game of your dreams?

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 August 2019

    super_etecoon said: To be fair, I don't really want Prime of the Wild.  I don't need a map that expansive at least.  But I would like some room to shinespark and some areas to cover with screw attack.  But by it's nature a Metroid game needs to feel more cramped and have more convoluted paths.  I just want the expansiveness of a new gen game when it calls for it. ...

    How much would you pay for the game of your dreams?

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 August 2019

    super_etecoon said: I paid $200 for Metroid Prime. That was all I needed to play on the Game Cube to make it worth it to me. I would pay $400 for the Switch 2 with a Metroid game that was as expansive or as ambitious as Breath of the Wild, even if there weren't going to be other titles released for it. ^ This, this, and THIS. Though, as much as i'd like to see a "Prime of the Wild,"...

    Revisiting Breath of the Wild

    in Nintendo Discussion on 23 July 2019

    Jumpin said: Apples and Oranges are both fruit, that doesn't mean they should be compared the same way. What you are presenting here is typically called the "No True Scotsman" fallacy; that is, you're not assessing Breath of the Wild for its own merits, but rather criticizing it for its differences from older Zelda games - even if by its own merits it is a far greater game. Don't...

    Revisiting Breath of the Wild

    in Nintendo Discussion on 23 July 2019

    Jumpin said: I think you should appraise a game by its merits. It seems like you are judging the merits of Breath of the Wild by the expectations of what other types of Zelda games do. It's like appraising an apple by the norms of an orange. I appreciate the response, and you've made some good points, but I think I need to reiterate. I'm comparing it to other Zelda games because...

    Revisiting Breath of the Wild

    in Nintendo Discussion on 22 July 2019

    Yeah, I have my issues with it as well. I don't find it to be the "masterpiece" that everyone else says it is. The story isn't as good as previous entries, since it's mostly told through flashbacks. It was fine at first, but then I slowly came to the realization that there's nothing more. The dungeons are lackluster, and there are only four of them in the game. Majora's Mask had four dungeons as...

    Astral Chain previews are coming out and things are looking very good

    in Nintendo Discussion on 22 July 2019

    Nice to hear! Been excited about this game since the initial announcement. I'm typically not a fan of hack and slash games, but this looks fantastic! I especially love the detective and investigation elements. I haven't played a single game made by Platinum, so this may be my first. ...

    Worst director of all time?

    in Movies Discussion on 18 July 2019

    To be honest, I don't even know. Out of all the ones you've listed, it probably has to be Uwe Boll. The only movie of his that i've seen is House of the Dead, and it sucked. Needless to say, I don't intend on watching his other movies. Michael Bay and Roland Emmerich rarely ever make objectively good movies, but even their worst ones are still fun to watch. Armageddon and 2012 are guilty...

    Spider-Man: Homecoming vs Spider-Man: Far From Home... Which is better?

    in Movies Discussion on 07 July 2019

    A few days ago I watched Spider-Man: Far From Home, and I'm still thinking about the movie. I thought it was fantastic! Tom Holland and company are great as usual, especially Jake Gyllenhaal. He just nails it as Mysterio. The action is far better than anything we saw in Homecoming. I also thought the story was a lot more interesting. In my opinion, Far From Home is a big step up from Homecoming,...

    Best year for a Nintendo system?

    Donkey Kong Country vs Yoshi's Island

    in Nintendo Discussion on 26 March 2019

    DK Country without a doubt. The visuals, music, and gameplay are all fantastic. Yoshi's Island is a very well-made and polished game, but it never quite clicked for me. Oh... and I absolutely HATE crying Baby Mario with a passion....

    Subspace Emissary or World of Light?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 25 February 2019

    I personally prefer Subspace a tad more for its story and platforming gameplay. However, I REALLY enjoyed World of Light, especially the second half. I love that they're both very different, which makes them special in their own ways. For me, there's certain things one does better than the other. For instance, Subspace had a much better story, and the character interactions were the best!...

Glad to see another fan on the site! I'll also be buying the movie on Blu-Ray when it comes out. I'd love it if they released a boxed set that...
