    Tracking The Rise (Or Fall?) of Skywalker

I know certain people here that are still holding grudges over TLJ can't be convinced that they're ever in error, but I thought you could. I gave you plenty of examples of data backing up my argument. I even...

    Game of the decade: The 1990s

    in Gaming Discussion 1 day ago

    If I had to make a Top 5 of the decade, it'd be:#5: Final Fantasy IV #4: Super Metroid #3: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past#2: Super Mario 64 #1: Super Mario Bros. 3I count SMB3 because even though it came out in 1988 in Japan it wasn't released in North America until Feb. 1990, so as an American it counts as a 90s game to me.Each of these games are absolute standouts, among the greatest...

    Here's how the next gen is gonna play out

    in Gaming Discussion 3 days ago

    I think the PS5 and XSX will be closer in sales than the PS4 and XBO were. The XBO was less powerful than the PS4, yet cost $100 more at launch because of the forced bundling of Kinect. Between that and the PR debacles in the months leading up to launch, they lost significant market share this generation. I think they've learned from their mistakes, and the XSX, even if it costs $100 more than...

    And then there's the "Legs only matter when I say they do" arguments.Jumanji 4 had a Week 4 drop of 51.9%, worse than the vast majority of major summer blockbusters released outside of December. Looking through the top 50 films of the 2010s (adjusted), the only non-December releases that had a worse drop in Week 4 were Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and Batman vs....

That's less than my initial projections as I expected both a larger weekend and a ROTJ/ROTS-level second-to-third film increase. Still, that would be...

That's a good question. Why don't you ask them? Maybe studios care more about the first week or two than they do about the long tail, especially for December releases considering they've long...

    Cyberpunk 2077 delayed until September 2020

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 January 2020

    Well, if there is indeed a next-gen version, I'll just wait for that. That's a hell of a delay, though. On the plus side at least the March-April period isn't as crowded. ...

    If anything, TROS, and Disney-era Star Wars in general, is an excellent example of the importance of the calendar, especially for films released in December. I know some people are dismissive of the effects of the calendar, but it's just a simple fact of the matter. Christmas Day, Memorial Day, New Year's Day, MLK Day, President's Day, Valentine's Day, Labor Day, and Columbus Day are all days...

    Game of the decade: 2000s (2000-2009)

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 January 2020

    Halo: Combat Evolved was my GotD for the 00s. It was not only one of the most revolutionary FPS titles ever, but the campaign remains my favorite single-player FPS experience ever. I still play it on a highly regular basis. The multiplayer hasn't aged nearly as well (though that could just be the MCC), but the campaign still holds up very well for me. And just for the hell of it, here's the...

    Did Breath of the Wild live up to the hype for you?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 15 January 2020

    Not quite. Don't get me wrong. It's a good game. It just felt lacking in several key areas, namely: - Instead of a good selection of thematically unique full dungeons, we got the four Divine Beasts, which were too similar to each other, and a bunch of mini-shrines that followed a few similar themes and were aesthetically the same. - A limited enemy roster compared to most other Zelda games,...

    When will the switch outsell the ps4?

    Amnesia said: If this Switch 2 belongs too the 9th for you, this means that Nintendo kills the current Switch, at best this Switch 2 can be retro compatible but it will be a really different machine with specific games not usable on the current Switch/Lite Well, yeah, they'll drop support for the Switch at some point.

    Amnesia said: Nu-13 said: That's easy since it will be the only 9th gen console. But you're free to compare it's sales with the 10th gen systems. Could you just remind me what are gen 8-9 and 10 for you guys ? For me it's this: Gen 8: Wii U, PS4, XBO, SwitchGen 9: PS5, XSX, Switch 2 The NPD Group defines the Switch as "current-gen," and since Nintendo tacitly...

    Sorry for the late reply. I've been ill lately. The_Liquid_Laser said: I certainly don't think that sales nosedive the week after a competitor launches.  Competition doesn't mean that one system immediately "falls off a cliff" as soon as a competitor releases.  The effects of competition are not immediate.

    Last Of Us Game Of The Decade - According To Metacritic Users

    in Gaming Discussion on 10 January 2020
