    Well done, Nintendo fans!

    in Nintendo Discussion on 02 October 2019

    Only thing I'll 'take credit' for is buying more 3rd-party games. Dormant series - Advance Wars. Back in the day this was more popular than Fire Emblem, but it skipped the 3DS entirely and shows no signs of ever coming to Switch. Wargroove is a spiritual successor, but I'd like to see the real thing come back. Also Star Wars Rogue Squadron. Release that finished Wii compilation on...

    I just don't get why silent protagonist's are still a thing in video games!

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 September 2019

    Do the player characters in Bethesda games like Skyrim and Fallout count as silent? They have no voice acting aside from grunting but have a ton of dialogue options. Also, a game like Metroid is probably better off with Samus remaining silent. Prime 3 had voice acting, but not a single line from Samus, and it worked so much better than Other M. The isolation and first-person perspective...

    Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition announced for Switch (2020)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 09 September 2019

    XBX has one of the best open worlds in any videogame ever made. Exploring and navigating the world is as enthralling as it gets, especially as you unlock the mech and later the ability to fly to cover more ground faster and reach previously unreachable locations. The game suffers in the story department though. Xenoblade 1 has by far the best story. It's world is incredibly unique and...

    Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition announced for Switch (2020)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 05 September 2019

    I kind of wish they waited another generation to remake the OG Xenoblade. This has fixed the weaknesses in the original's visuals, the character models and the textures up close, but it doesn't seem to be improving the vistas anywhere near as much as I'd like, and overall it still seems to have the worst visuals in the series. I guess it's to be expected that a remake wouldn't match up to a...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 September 2019

    For all the talk of Nintendo having bad relationships with third parties, they have a pretty good track record in terms of letting other developers play with their IPs. In the 90s there was Rare with Donkey Kong Country. Then there was Capcom with 3 handheld Zelda games. I think Next Level Games is also technically third party and they've done 2 Luigi's Mansion games and Punch Out. It doesn't...

    Alternate history: N64 goes with CDs instead of cartridges

    in Gaming Discussion on 26 August 2019

    Like I said in my first post, the cost of the system would be a factor, but the fact that the games would be so much cheaper would largely negate that. N64 games were ridiculous in how expensive they were. It seems to me that Nintendo could have gotten away with using cartridges instead of CDs if they hadn't screwed over Sony with the SNES disk drive. If there was no Playstation third...

    Witcher 3 impressions

    in Nintendo Discussion on 25 August 2019

    I'm still shocked a game like BOTW was able to run at all on a system with as weak a CPU as the Wii U. Yes, it was designed with the Wii U in mind and used twice as much RAM as pretty much every other game on the system, but still. I was under the impression that these massive open world games were harder on the CPU and that was why games like Skyrim couldn't come to the Wii U. Maybe they...

    Is Dragon Quest XI S gonna be the best multiplatform game released on the Switch?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 23 August 2019

    Compared to the other versions of the game yes. It's not often at all that the Switch version of a multiplat can be said to be the best version. Witcher 3 will be downgraded no matter how well it runs, and it has no new content. Doom and Wolfenstein were wizardry, but half the framerate and Doom was missing some content. This is the first time I can think of where there are advantages to the...

    Alternate history, 7th gen: Clash of the HD dreadnaughts

    in Gaming Discussion on 23 August 2019

    Again, it wasn't like 3rd parties were going all in on making multiplats for the first couple of years of the generation. Bioshock 1 was exclusive to XBox. So was Mass Effect 1. Assassin's Creed only went multiplat because of the 360's success in its first year. It took several years for most of the big third parties to settle on making everything multiplat. A Gamecube 2 with hardware...

    Ori and the Blind Forest Definitive Edition announced for the Nintendo Switch!

    in Nintendo Discussion on 19 August 2019

    This and Superhot are very big. Also, Microsoft seems to be rather smart about what games it allows to go to the Switch. I know some people are clamoring for Halo, but Ori and Cuphead are jut perfect for the system in a way other (non-Rare) Microsoft franchises could never be. ...

    Witcher 3 impressions

    in Nintendo Discussion on 19 August 2019

    Gaming journalists were brought in to play Witcher 3 in handheld mode. Seems like it holds up impossibly well despite how weak the Switch is compared to the XB1 and PS4. 720P docked. 540P handheld.  Both dynamic. The framerate seems to be on par with the other console versions, with similar slowdown in the swamp area but mostly keeping steady.  And even with the downgrades it...

    Alternate history, 7th gen: Clash of the HD dreadnaughts

    in Gaming Discussion on 19 August 2019

    As others have noted, Nintendo had significant problems with HD development with the Wii U which they would have had with a 2006 version as well. So games in general would have taken longer to make. There;d be no Wii Sports, Wii Fit, or Wii Play. Twilight Princess would be a Gamecube exclusive. I'm not even sure the system would get that many more 3rd party multiplats. Mass Effect 1 and...

    Alternate history: N64 goes with CDs instead of cartridges

    in Gaming Discussion on 12 August 2019

    The question is how the CD format would have affected the games the N64 had in real life. Long load times would be a real detriment to games like Mario 64, and big open areas like Hyrule Field also benefited from the cartridge format. Another question is how much the N64 would cost if designed to play CDs, but the games themselves would have been cheaper, so that would even out. Square...

    Are Nintendo games held to an unrealistic standard?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 July 2019

    The need for a compelling story varies from game to game. A game like Mario would not benefit from having a truly compelling story, as all it would do is take time away from actually playing the game, so having such a story would hurt the overall experience. So the absence of a compelling narrative is no reason to lower the game's score. A game like Fire Emblem, on the other hand, where the...
