    The human cost of Red Dead Redemption 2 (Eurogamer)

    in Gaming Discussion on 26 October 2018

    I'm glad that the game lives up to the hype, but I'm also glad that the working conditions in gaming are gaining more traction. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-10-25-the-human-cost-of-red-dead-redemption-2   I'm so mad at this, that I've decided to make a "promo" poster from the quotes: ...

    Nintendo Switch has become the fastest selling video game system of all time in the US

    in Sales Discussion on 04 January 2018

    nemo37 said: Do we know how much Switch sold in the US by the beginning of December? We can use that information to calculate the December sales in the US. The charts unfortunately only show regional data in the US up to November 18. If we conclude from the NPD data for November, it would put switch sales in December at around 1.4 million.   Edit: we didn't get NPD for switch,...

    None of the blockbuster 3rd party games coming to switch 2017

    in Gaming Discussion on 03 May 2017

    Nothing tragic about it, at least not of a magnitude that switch will sell below 30mil units as the OPs poll suggest. And I see it as a missed oppurtunity for 3rd parties rather than a great loss to Nintendo. I'm sure that even some very late ports, such as GTA V, would sell millions on the system. I also think that almost any AAA 3rd party game that would have been released in the period...

    Does the Public Know About the Nintendo Switch?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 03 March 2017

    I think nintendo counts on users/early adopters promoting it by simply bringing it to school or other events. The social component (local multiplayer) that they are heavily promoting in the trailers could bring the popularity with the right software (1-2 switch isn't it, maybe for the most casual users, but it needs propagation from the early adopters first or it should be a pack-in). So,...

    Should Nintendo Stop Innovating And Make A Traditional Console?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 09 February 2017

    PC is my main gaming system, because of the flexibility (KB/Mouse, Controller, wheel, VR, you name it), backwards compatibility which will remain for the forseeable future and easy library management with Steam. Had Xbox360, sold it after 3 months. Ain't interested in PS4 or Xbone. Still have Wii. Still have DS. Switch is basically first console I've preordered, and the first one I'll be...

    Switch Launch Feels Like a "Soft Launch"

    in Nintendo Discussion on 20 January 2017

    bunchanumbers said: I could see it as a soft launch, but I also see it as a mistake. Perception is reality and a soft launch means that the system will look bad. Youtubers will be showing the system in its imperfect state and it will cause casuals to look at it like they look at Wii U (if they looked at Wii U at all). When Nintendo lines up their ducks in the fall the damage will already be...

    Switch Launch Feels Like a "Soft Launch"

    in Nintendo Discussion on 20 January 2017

    While all indicates that Nintendo isn't fully prepared for the Switch launch, it's not a soft launch, but rather a full scale console launch (albeit an imperfect and probably improvised launch), with all the marketing behind it. I just cannot understand the disasturous PR - for some aspects, like online, they should've prepare all the necessary information or should've ommited some vague...

    Nintendo Switch and the main reasons it will be a flop W.I.P.

    in Gaming Discussion on 17 January 2017

    So far, it's indicating to be the exact opposite. The hardware concept is obviously liked by the public. The prospect of a relatively capable hybrid device is interesting to many. The price is a hard pill to swallow, but in return you get a very flexible device, it's by far more graphically capable as a handheld compared to last gen. The main launch game has all the indications of...
