    Starting a GBC collection. Looking for recommendations.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 August 2019

    Unfortunately, I doubt that many GBC carts (whose games require saving) are playable anymore unless you are willing to change out the save batteries. Even if you do change out the batteries, you will likely be back to having the same problem in another 8-10 years because the batteries just don't last that long.Unfortunately, GBC was the last Nintendo generation that didn't use flash memory for...

    This place is getting deserted, and we have to do something about it

    in Website Topics on 13 August 2019

    Given that the console wars really hit their peak in the 90's with the Genesis and SNES camps fighting it off, it is actually quite amazing to me that a website like this can still stake its existence on the idea of of brand loyalty and console sales in 2019. I think that it's amazing that the site is still going and is still fairly vibrant and that the concept of comparing console sales is even...

    Why can't Dems presidential hopefuls pull this much people for any of their rallys? <20,000+

    in Politics Discussion on 22 June 2019

    Because the Dems don't have >90% of the mainstream media, Hollywood, the heads of intelligence agencies, the big tech giants, the fortune 100, the Bilderberg billionaires, all the war-mongering establishment "never-Trump" Republicans, the elitist Universities, JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs and pretty much every big bank decrying their every move. On the contrary, the Dems get re-sounding...

    Wii or N64?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 May 2019

    curl-6 said: Illusion said: motion controls which were basically a fad Fads burn out quickly and disappear. Motion controls are still around 12+ years after the release of the Wii and show no sing of disappearing any time in the foreseeable future. They're not a fad, they'd be long gone by now if they were. It was adopted (like the rumble pak) as being a...

    Wii or N64?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 May 2019

    Oh no, you too? We already have colafitte telling us that motion controls are a fad because he wants it to be that way while ignoring every counter argument and evidence against this ridiculously false claim. It has elements of being a fad.  The N64 introduced force feedback and that was something similar.  Of course, every single game uses force feedback but that...

    Wii or N64?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 May 2019

    One of the things that made the N64 such a hit was that it was such a great party machine. It introduced 4 player multiplayer (in the modern context of today's consoles) and had some of the greatest multiplayer games of the generation: Goldeneye, Mario Kart, Mario Party(s), Mario Golf Super Smash Bros, etc... The reality is, though, that the Wii does everything that the N64 did in terms of...

    Switch Close to Passing Sales of N64 (UPDATE: Now Passed!)

    The_Liquid_Laser said: Well it is true that the N64 sold better than the Wii U.  Obviously more people were playing the system.  But I never saw a young kid that didn't like the Wii U.  I wasn't going to buy a Wii U, but my daughter begged and begged for one.  Her friends didn't get one, but they were always happy to come over and play.  Games...

    Switch Close to Passing Sales of N64 (UPDATE: Now Passed!)

    The_Liquid_Laser said: Illusion said: The difference is that, at least in North America, the N64 succeeded in achieving massive mainstream appeal.  If you were a kid in 1997 and you had an N64 in your house, every kid on the block wanted to come over.  If you were a kid in 2013 with a Wii U, most of your friends would roll their eyes and go back to their smartphone....

All of the other "contributions" you listed actually helped Sony more than Nintendo.  They solved 3D camera and combat...

    Reggie Fils-Aime Retiring, Doug Bowser to take over as new Nintendo of America President

    in Nintendo Discussion on 22 February 2019

    Reggie took Nintendo of America through very a prosperous as well as a very challenging era and I thought that he did well during both in terms of giving Nintendo a public face for the hardcore gamer crowd. He knew how to make fun of himself and step outside of being an office suit, which I do not really recall seeing from Nintendo before Reggie and Iwata. Reggie and Iwata really complimented...

    Update on Metroid Prime 4: Development restart. Retro Studios + Tanabe now working on it

    in Nintendo Discussion on 25 January 2019

    I think the good news that we can take from this is that Nintendo is finally committed to making a decent Metroid Prime game and that they learned their lesson from the Federation Force disaster. I think almost every Metroid fan out their would rather just not have another Metroid than have anything less than the best effort from Nintendo. To me, this broadcast indicates that Nintendo now...

    Regarding Nintendo Handhelds, was the Switch concept inevitable?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 January 2019

    I think that it is more of a response to smartphone gaming than the failure of the Wii U where Nintendo needed something to differentiate its handheld gaming experience. The docking feature does this very well. I am sure that if Nintendo could they would love to have kept their handheld and home console business separate. For over 2 decades Nintendo basically had a near monopoly in the...

    Global Hardware 15 December 2018

    in Latest Charts on 07 January 2019

    Great showing for the Switch. It's so nice to see Nintendo back on top even if it is just for a month. In the Wii U days, so many people were saying that Nintendo was finished in the home console business and if it were any other company, they would be. The Switch has got to be one of the most impressive turnarounds for a console developer in gaming history....

    What if Microsoft made a super smash clone? Would you buy it?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 29 December 2018

    Apart from Master Chief, almost every other well-known character in an Xbox smash game would be better known for their entries on a Nintendo platform. In my opinion, it would make a lot more sense for Microsoft to just collect royalties from Nintendo and offer the following additions to the next Nintendo smash game or as DLC for the current Smash: - Master Chief - Joanna Dark - Jet Force...

    If exclusives sell consoles, how come the Wii U failed? Also, why are few youtubers saying exclusives sell Switchs/PS4s but not Xbox Ones?

    in Gaming Discussion on 25 December 2018

    Honestly, exclusives do sell consoles and is probably the reason why the Wii U managed to outsell the Dreamcast and Saturn and pushed 14 million units despite being the worst console hardware to hit the market possibly ever from a major console developer. If it wasn't for games like Mario Kart 8, Smash 4, Splatoon, Mario Maker the Wii U probably would have sold half of what it did. The Wii U...

    What JRPG has the best soundtrack you´ve ever heard?

    in Gaming Discussion on 25 December 2018

    I haven't played many Final Fantasy games and so I can't comment on what seems to be the popular choices on this thread but I honestly found Earthbound to have one of the most unique and memorable soundtracks in any game that I have ever played. It's one of the few games where I will just be listening to classical music years later or even just the regular radio and a track reminds of Earthbound...

    Donald Trump is Finished | Super Deluxe Super Cuts

    in Politics Discussion on 17 December 2018

    Really the lesson of this video should be for people how fake the mainstream media really has become. The lies have become next level since Trump took office and I am amazed that Americans still view CNN, et. al as having any kind of legitimacy as news organizations. You were told that it was an open and shut case of Russian collusion and that Trump would be gone from office in the first 100...
