    "Video Games Are Too Expensive To Make!"

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 06 November 2017

    An interesting video popped up in my youtube feed for once: I always figured it a lousy, unfounded argument made by people who attach their favorite games to a greed fueled company.  Perhaps some hard numbers will make it make sense now?...

    Predicting the Nintendo Switch revision!

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 10 July 2019

    Nintendo can't keep the little guy on store shelves, yet someone's predicting they'll revise it next year?   Well I'm hoping they do.  I'd really like to get to some of the exclusives they have coming up.  The thing is, the design is too flawed for my tastes at the moment: the battery, storage, online(friend codes in 2045?) and a few other smaller things just aren't up to par for...

    Theory on why Monster Hunter World isn't coming to Switch(yet).

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 24 June 2017

    Monster Hunter Stories and Monster Hunter XX. While it's a spinoff game, Stories didn't do as well in Japan as Capcom would have liked.  I think, even though Worlds would be a Switch title if anything, Capcom doesn't want the big boys stepping on the toes of Stories in the west.  MH isn't a kid friendly franchise, and I think they'd like to push the spin off that welcomes young players...

    WTF is a "Day One Edition"?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 22 July 2016

    Being a relatively skint twenty-something in the year two thousand shitty, I adamantly refuse to purchase games for 60$ dollars.  In the curent market where games release unfinished at full price, only to drop to 45$ in a few months in a finished state, what am I gaining from buying early besides some busted online play with the rest of the suckers?  This isn't even bringing up the...

    I was wrong about Pokemon GO.

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 04 November 2016

    I thought this topic was thread worthy simply because I express so much negativiy about fad like things and felt I should give my thoughts about it after some use.  Also, my opinion is more important than anyone elses. If anyone here has read my posts about this app you'd know I was quite skeptical and negative about it.  Well this was before I actually got the thing to work properly...

    Best Playstation 4 Game Out Right Now

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 11 July 2016

    What games are you guys playing on it right now?  What do you recommend? Currently I'm looking to pick up a PS4 around Christmas time, though I'd like to have somewhat of a backlog to choose from when I fork over 400$ for a thing.  Right now I have a few games safely placed so I don't forget they exist("Save for Later" at Amazon cause lazy). Having not played a single game on the...

    Is it just me...

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 27 February 2016

    Or does Fire Emblem Fates have a lying RNG?  I'm currently playing Birthright on Hard/Classic, doing the first Paralogue and I've had desensitize myself to knowing that my opponent's hit rate % is a lie.  It's happened in every chapter thus far but it's particularly bad here as none of my units have dodged a single attack.  I'm talking 41%s, 34%s, even 16%s.  On the flipside,...

    Will New 3DS ever have an exclusive?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 08 July 2015

    The New 3DS is a hard upgrade for a lot of people so I'm wondering, is it in Nintendo's interest to release at least one exclusive game for it?  It slightly enhances games like MH4 and Majora's Mask but it's extra horsepower is worthless right now.   When I heard about the new Fire Emblem I expected it to be N3DS exclusive.  Some games could use that extra power, like Federation...

    Best Storylines/1P Experince in FPS'

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 10 February 2015

    First person shooters have never really been my forte; I have issues with first person view in general, it's based on real life yet feels like I'm in a box, giving it a closterfobic feel and ultimately ruining many interesting games.  I enjoyed the original Medal of Honor games back on PS1&2 though the shooter genre at the time was slightly different than it is today(most shooters...

    Most Challenging Monotype Pokemon Playthough

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 08 January 2015

    A monotype playthough is using only one type of Pokemon for your entire team throughout the game, though the Pokemon can have secondary types.  I'm planning on doing a Grass type run with Pokemon Y soon so I was wondering what people thought was the most challenging type to try this with, in any particular gen.  What about the easiest type? Typically Bug or Grass seems to have the most...

    What's the Most Overrated Game You've Played and Disliked?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 07 January 2015

    Idea taken from spemanig. Check out his thread here: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=196033 Overrated in terms of general concensus.  Ex: reviewers of Skyward Sword laud the game and believe it to be a masterpiece, many going as far to have it rated 10/10.  Meanwhile I dispise the title; I'm one of the folks that has no issues with the controls but dislike SS for...

    For this holiday my stepdad asked my sister what she'd like for Christmas.  She proceeded to make a list including the Wii U, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Tomadichi Life and Minecraft.  So, being the great dad he is, he brought her essitally nothing on her list and insted got her a used PS3 with Call of Duty: Black Opps.  ...yeah.  There's now a paperweight in her room with CoD...

    Will Third Parties Try with the Wii U After Smash 4 Releases?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 12 August 2014

    It seems the Wii U has been in Catch 22 stasis since release.  No install base = no third parties = no install base. With Mario Kart 8 moving units and Smash 4 being the biggest Wii U release from this point on, the console will shift units.  But will it matter? Will 3rd party publishers give the Gamepad a second(or in most cases first) chance?  Or is it too little too late? I...

    Pipe Dreams: Games You'd Buy Any Console To Play

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 03 August 2014

    There are lot of new games that are going to entice people and batter at the gates of their psyche to get them to buy a console.  And while eventually we'll all be won over by our respective console(s), there are some consoles that just don't have the games we desire - or at least enough to warrant a purchase. But what about those games that we know will never happen?  Those nostalgic...

    How good is Dark Souls II?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 06 July 2014

    When it comes to games with true atmosphere, Demon's Souls is one of the best.  I genuinely felt immersed in the world, that I was alone and was genuinely afraid.  When I first saw the message "***** is invading your world...", I was terrified.  Call me a chicken, but the game had tremendous presntation and thematics.  Now, when I played Dark Souls, while the game felt fresh,...
