    Alternate history: N64 goes with CDs instead of cartridges

    in Gaming Discussion 3 hours ago

    DonFerrari said: I just think it is funny that most seem to be taking a very rose glassed alternative reality option. One where Nintendo having CD would make everything right.Where we could alternatively have a CD on N64, but the rest of the HW because of this decision end up being a Saturn equivalent... See Sega had established brand power, CD, but still couldn't outsell even N64.So Sony...

    Gamestop is dying a slow death: lays off over 100 people, nearly half of Game Informerīs staff

    It is bound to happen they will have to transition eventually into a Retro gaming specialized store that offers sale and resales of current gaming. The retro niche is important, it is the reason I still visit used game stores. ...

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

    in Gaming Discussion 16 hours ago

    The Wii was a gimmick that boomed with casuals, kids and elderly homes. It was a stroke of genius in terms of what they did (sell a roided GC, with cheap motion controls and make tons of money). Had they gone HD they would have faced a similar uphill battle as they did before because knowing Nintendo: they would have gone with a strange media format, would have lagged behind in online gaming, and...

    Alternate history: N64 goes with CDs instead of cartridges

    in Gaming Discussion 2 days ago

    The N64 had a record setting start in sales. Lack of games and pricey carts hurt the system sales afterwards. All of these could be blamed on Nintendo being stubborn and going with Cartridges. The N64 was a powerhouse of a machine, it delivered arguably the better more ground breaking games of that gen (Mario 64, GE, Ocarina of Time). FFVII was a big reason for Sony's success in the mid to late...

    What was your most played game for each generation?

    in Gaming Discussion 4 days ago

    NES era- Super Mario Bros 3. GEN-SNES era- I spent a lot of time on Sonic 2 and Chrono Trigger but thinking about it. I think the game I most played was Mortal Kombat 1-2. PS1-N64 era- Zelda Ocarina of Time (Honorable Mention to Final Fantasy VII) Dreamcast-PS2 -XBOX-GC- Surprisingly while not my favorite game it was probably Speed Devils Online for the DC (my high school grades suffered bad)...

    3D games of the 90s that have aged the best

    in Gaming Discussion on 15 June 2019

    If it is true 3-D I won't mention the FF series since those used pre rendered back grounds for the most part. Here it goes: 1. Mario 64- The first game that got 3-D right,has also aged incredibly well. Odyssey is the news platforming king and it plays mostly by the same rules Mario 64 established more than two decades ago. The colorful blocky graphics are passable still. 2.Ocarina of Time-...

    Xbox Head Phil Spencer Said "The Business isn't About Selling How Many Consoles "

    in Gaming Discussion on 12 June 2019

    This is the usual banter when you are sitting as a distant number 2 ...about to be number 3 soon in the console wars. Now obviously from what I gather Microsoft is slowly but surely going towards the third party developer/publisher route which is profitable especially if they get trashed again in the next gen race. It has been a tough road since that fateful E3 in 2013 where the brand took a hit...
