    Is Rey from Star Wars a Mary Sue?

    in Movies Discussion on 14 January 2018

    Soundwave said: Neo isn't a weakling at the beginning of the Matrix. He fails the first jump but that's it. He only fails because he doesn't trust in his inate powers.  The very first time he spars with Morpheus it's clear to the audience that he's already more powerful than Morpheus who's presumably the most powerful of the "good guys".  The only thing he has to do is believe...

    Mom wants 'sexist' fairy tale banned

    in Politics Discussion on 28 November 2017

    This is the type of story that indicates the tipping point of the cultural war in the West. The result is not going to be some huge pushback towards conservatism, even though it is projected that Generation Z may be the most conservative since the Silent Generation, but that an increasing number of individuals simply aren't going to care about identity politics, virtue signaling and...

    And the Scalpers Are OUT!!!!!

    in Microsoft Discussion on 09 November 2017

    Scalping is generally a product of open markets (when demand exceeds available supply) and flaws in the provider's distribution system. So in most cases when scalping is rampant, it's not unfair to blame the manufacturer for failing to produce enough to meet demand, although this may be due to factors out of their hands. The manufacturer is dependent upon supply channels and OEM providers who...

    $349 PS4 PRO, vs $499 XBOX ONE X? Which one wins?

    in Sales Discussion on 09 November 2017

    I'm assuming we'll see a $399 PS4 Pro holiday bundle before a vanilla $349 SKU. As for the numbers predictions, it can probably easily be boiled down by looking at production numbers and availability of the respective consoles. I don't see PS4 Pros flying off shelves unless we see some great bundles. I would expect to see more shine behind the XBOX as the newest/bestest, so sales really...

    Convince me to get a Vita

    in Sony Discussion on 09 August 2017

    It's a 2010 portable platform with no future support in the Western markets. There is no impassioned argument to be made for such a device, but: 1. They can be picked up dirt cheap, offset by the fact that proprietary Vita memory cards not only remain overpriced, but are now overpriced far disproportionately to existing NAND memory market prices. The solution is to stick to chip/retail...

    Failed Switch predictions of analysts

    in Nintendo Discussion on 27 July 2017

    Nem said: Well... the switch did end up selling more than people predicted, but the recurring 3rd party problems won't be going away. Also curious to see what will happen and how long the hype effect will last. It seems the core Nintendo fans were still willing to forgive Nintendo for the Wii U, wich is surprising to me. I'd like to see a study to know wich segment they managed to...

    Which year will the next NEW Zelda game launch?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 27 July 2017

    Probably at least five years for a "proper" release, now that there is no dedicated, low power (withhold jokes about Switch being a glorified portable that VA outputs to HDTV) Nintendo development platform. I don't see 3DS consumers getting another major Zelda game, but who knows? With no dedicated handheld development platform, it would seem a bit odd for Nintendo to let the Zelda IP go...

    Your system sellers

    in Gaming Discussion on 18 July 2017

    Thinking back, if I define killer app as a specific game that compels me to buy a console or game device just to play it, and by extension, means I would not have bought said console/hardware had that game not been available, there really isn't a single one. I've used some games as an excuse to pick up additional platforms during a generation which is a habit I've dropped (no time to play...

    Do you ACTUALLY believe that Nintendo is creating artifical Switch shortages?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 22 June 2017

    It's not asking much to take a look at the monthly sales figures on VGC and compare those with Nintendo's production numbers to confirm/debunk the notion that Nintendo is withholding stock on any significant level. Realistically, Nintendo (or anyone for that matter) wants as many hardware units in the hands of consumers as possible, preferably in the hands of end users rather than Ebay...

    How Much Space is Left on Your Nintendo Switch?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 20 June 2017

    25.6 GB Only have Blaster Master Zero on it, making my Switch a portable remake of an 80s 8 bit game console rather than a Zelda console. Haven't given it much thought, but while most of the games I bought on the PSV were digital, despite the ridiculous memory card prices, I see myself buying all $60 MSRP Switch games on retail chip, even with the cheap price of Micro SD cards. eShop...

    Do you think a revised 1080p screen Switch could run Mario Kart Arcade GP VR?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 18 June 2017

    In 2-3 years the market will probably see a New Switch with the prerequisite SoC upgrade, possibly a memory bump and an updated display. I don't believe Nintendo is in any real hurry to rush new hardware to the market seeing as how the success of the Switch will likely have them scrambling just to keep up with demand for the next year or so. Of course, they do have the foresight to...

    Differences between PS4 Pro and XbOX reveal.

Because a $500 console isn't going to render every game in native 4K...

    Differences between PS4 Pro and XbOX reveal.

    in Gaming Discussion on 17 June 2017

    I'll start from the standpoint of a zero hype opinion as I really don't bother with the corporate salesmanship and marketing of hardware anymore. As much as I like reading about hardware specs as well as respected software developer takes on utilization, I simply don't get caught up hype anymore because I've been following the industry for too many decades. The PS4P came off as a hardware...

    Nintendo's install base shrunk from 250 million in Gen 7 to ~80 million in Gen 8

    in Sales Discussion on 16 May 2017

    Lot of overlap in that 250m figure. Given the undeveloped state of mobile gaming at the peak of the DS, Wii households typically had at least one DS. The DS itself became a collectible with all the special editions, further padding that install base figure. The prospect of the Switch taking back market share from mobile in addition to whatever is left of the dedicated handheld market (zero...

    How Nintendo could get all the third party support in the world.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 May 2017

    While 3rd party support is always relevant for a console platform, the license/razor blade model really hasn't been a vital part of Nintendo's business strategy since the SNES. It was clear by the N64, they lost that game to Sony. They make good margins on all their hardware, and with the Switch, the margins they are making on the huge array of accessories (always more for a portable platform...
