    Wii or N64?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 May 2019

    As much as I really enjoyed the Wii, during it's lifetime, the definite nod would have to go to the N64. Wii Sports was such a great system seller, but did it have the lasting impact of, say, Mario 64? Games like Mario 64, Ocarina of Time revolutionized 3D platforming/adventure, and they're basically the pioneers of much about modern gaming. Aside from the games, the N64 popularized analog...

    The cart limitations of the Switch is really starting to hurt the console.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 08 April 2019

    I'm less bothered by large, expensive games not being given a physical release than I am by smaller games that cost more on Switch than, say, PS4 and XB1 when there is no real justification. If you're going to charge $10 more for Resident Evil 4 on Switch, then why not offer it in physical form? That $10 made all the difference to me because I refuse to be milked. The fact that Capcom couldn't...

    Games you put down after a significant time investment. Have you ever successfuly returned?

    in Gaming Discussion on 03 April 2019

    Yep. Several, actually. In the past few years alone, I have put down the following games, only to pick them back up and finish several months later: -Fallout 4. Got bored after three hours, put it down for about eight months. Once I picked it back up, it clicked and I put several hundred more hours into it! -GTA V: It felt like a slog, at first, so I put it down. After about a year or so, I...

    Happy Birthday FF VI released 25 years ago

    in Gaming Discussion on 03 April 2019

    It's a shame that North America didn't receive Dragon Quest V or VI until nearly fifteen years later! Those two games came close to rivalling the likes of Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger! I would have also loved to see Star Ocean! ...

    Happy Birthday FF VI released 25 years ago

    in Gaming Discussion on 03 April 2019

    Still my favorite SNES game of all time, and tied for being the very best of the entire series (alongside IX). I will always love VII, but it always seemed like a step down from the perfection of VI. ...

    RUMOR: Persona 5, Metroid Prime Trilogy, and Zelda: A Link to the Past in Best Buy's Employee Terminal

    in Nintendo Discussion on 03 April 2019

    Maybe I'm too jaded for my own good, but I have started rolling my eyes at these rumors because they are so constant. How many times are we going to hear the rumour that Metroid Prime Trilogy is on the way before it actually happens? I would love to see Persona 5 come to Switch, but it's another one of those games that the rumor mill is constantly buzzing around and the mainline series hasn't...

    Which Post-90s Bands Deserve to be in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame?

    in Music Discussion on 28 March 2019

    Hmmm. I definitely think that all of the MOR post-grunge bands--from Matchbox 20 to Third Eye Blind--will eventually get in. What you're going to see, sooner rather than later, is a dearth of popular bands who are worthy of joining the Hall. My hope is that we start to see the incredible indie acts of the past twenty-plus years get their due: Grandaddy, Pavement, Neutral Milk Hotel,...

    Konami 50th Anniversary Arcade Classics, Castlevania, and Contra collections announced for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 March 2019

    One thing that I'm completely perplexed by (I've seen the demand for it on both Twitter and NintendoLife) is the demand that Castlevania Adventure Rebirth be included. Why would people want an average remake of a below average game over a fantastic, underrated game that has only been released ONCE (Bloodlines)? I remember playing through Rebirth years ago, and immediately forgetting everything...

    SEGA has another feedback survey available. Ask you to help on deciding the future of popular series.

    in Gaming Discussion on 19 March 2019

    No kidding? See, I thought they only lost the source code for Saga. Then again, I guess that makes sense since the only Saturn game to ever seem to get rereleased is Nights. It's a shame, because I would love to see so much of that library rereleased!...

    Easy: -Add Panzer Dragoon 1 and Zwei, Virtua Fighter II, Shenmue 1 and 2, and Dynamite Cop to the Sega Ages library! -Make sure that the next Sega Genesis/MD Classic matches the quality of the (S)NES Classics; take it away from ATGames, and give it to a team that actually cares! -F-Zero GXHD!

    Google GDC Keynote Official Thread

    in Gaming Discussion on 19 March 2019

    Eh. The marketplace doesn't need another gaming platform. If it takes off, great! With so many different options (Switch, PS4, XBONE, PC, 3DS, Vita, etc.), I can't help but wonder how much of an audience there is for this. Google may be a giant, but I don't see this being a huge success. Then again, they haven't really shown anything, and I've been wrong before. ...

    in Gaming Discussion on 19 March 2019

    Seeing as how there has never been a time, in the entire history of gaming, when more than three consoles successfully coexisted, one of the current three would have to be pushed out of the market for a potential Google console to be more than a blip on the radar (they stand as good of a chance of failing as anybody else). ...

    Apart from the obvious recommendations (Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart, Smash Bros, Splatoon), the two South Park games available are insanely fun/funny and are always on sale. Also: -Doom and Wolfenstein were ridiculously good, considering the limitations of the hardware -Do you like beat em ups?

    How much $ do you spend on gaming?

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 March 2019

    Up until six years ago, which is when I sold off the bulk of my total collection, I would typically set aside anywhere between $80-120 a paycheck to put towards my collection. During the Christmas overtime season, I would up it to $150-180, and that was usually when I would usually splurge on the rare games. Now? Eh, maybe about $60 or so a month, and it's usually towards digital titles, or...

    "Leaving Neverland": Do you think Michael Jackson is Innocent?

    I'm somewhat conflicted: Did he have an inappropriate relationship with children? Whichever way you want to slice it, yes! Even if none of it was sexual, sharing a bed with children who are not your own isn't okay......but why are we not making a documentary on the parents who allowed this to happen? As a father myself, my daughter is allowed to spend the night with four people, all of which...
