    The greatest loser; which console that lost its gen in sales do you love most?

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 November 2019

    Hard question! It's funny, when I think back it's definitely the N64 as I adored that console and was so hyped playing Mario 64, Starfox and the two Zeldas. But it could also be the Gamecube for me. I have fond memories playing Mario Sunshine when I was ill and stayed home for a week. The PSP was also amazing. I got a PSP Go late in the console's life cycle for 99€ with 10 free games....

    Famitsu Sales: W44, 2019 (Oct 28 - Nov 03)

    in Sales Discussion on 08 November 2019

    So, Ring Fit Adventure is following the trajectory we saw with many casual / mass market games during the Wii/DS era: Relatively slow start but strong sales for weeks afterwards due to word of mouth. According to Iwata back then, the casual games mostly started selling hardware around 6 weeks after their release if I remember correctly. That means Ring Fit Adventure could boost Switch hardware...

    Brain Training for Switch announced

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 September 2019

    Soundwave said: The 3DS Brain Training flopped hard. People have moved on. There are a million of these types of things available on phones for $0.  I figured you would say that but as I've been telling you since these discussions began, the Switch cannot become wildly successful without the mass market customers on board. For the holiday season we have Pokémon, Ring...

    Dragon Quest XI S reviews: Meta 90, OC 91

    in Nintendo Discussion on 28 September 2019

    Don't know why people are complaining about the score. Switch owners got the definitive version of the game and things like better soundtrack, more content and speedier battles (thank god!) are way more important than resolution. Why the complaints? If this version released on PS4 I'd be perfectly fine with it scoring higher than the original release and I'd be happy for PS4 owners that they can...

    Should we ban older films for being too offensive? (The satire "The Last Temptation of Christ" - 1988)

    Jumpin said: CrazyGamer2017 said: Banning/censoring someone else's opinions/ideas/artistic works is for weak minds What if these "ideas/artistic work" are both wholly unoriginal and a blatantly offensive mockery? This "Jesus Christ" character is clearly only meant to disparage and sneer at Monty Python's Life of Brian. There is little originality or inherent value to...

    Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition announced for Switch (2020)

    Nintendo Direct Announced September 4th 2019 @3pm PT/6pm ET

    in Nintendo Discussion on 05 September 2019

    Some good announcements.  - SNES games are nice, but to be honest they are not much fresher than NES titles. They've been getting rereleased since the Wii days. But I'm not going to complain, it's nice to have A Link to the Past and some other games on the Switch. - Assassin's Creed 4 is the only game in the series since 2 that looked interesting to me... maybe I'll get it. - Xenoblade is...

    New Staff Writers Wanted [Applications Now Closed]

    in Website Topics on 24 July 2019

    This sounds interesting and I wish you great luck in finding good writers! A few questions of my own: Do you use a wordpress-based CMS to submit content? Is there a minimum requirement for the number of articles / words / characters one has to write in a given week or month? Are there any guidelines regarding minimum / maximum word count and media integration (a minimum / maximum number of...

    Are Nintendo games held to an unrealistic standard?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 22 July 2019

    The problem with games like Pikmin is that they are high budget titles but don't sell well and don't sell hardware. That's why Nintendo shouldn't focus too much on them. A Pikmin 1-3 collection for Switch, made by a third party developer? Sure, I'll take it. But putting years of effort and millions of dollars into Pikmin 4 just for it to sell 1.5 million units? They could spend their money and...

    Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 tracking very well, on track to be the 3rd biggest Switch launch this year

    High profile third party games have always sold well on successful Nintendo platforms. This is not actually a surprise, the Switch just didn't get many high profile third party games / exclusives yet. ...

    Upgraded Switch model announced: Same price, battery life of 4.5 to 9 hours - Launches in August (Americas, Japan) and September (Others)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 17 July 2019

    Oh, this is tempting. And the new Joy-Con colors as well. My Switch is perfectly fine as it is but better battery life would entice me to bring it with me more often. Maybe 64GB of internal storage, Nintendo? On a less personal level it is great to see that Nintendo is continually trying to evolve the platform. It irked me back in the Wii days that they never updated the console (well, they...

    Super Mario Maker 2: Are you a Maker?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 18 May 2019

    Creating levels is the best part of the game for me, but I know most people want to consume and not create of course - that's what game developers are there for after all. I enjoy creating stages and letting my friends play them, looking at their reactions, at what works and what doesn't. I'd love to create my own Jump 'n' Run at some point. Mario Maker 1 had too many strange and super hard...

    Mario Kart Wii (Yes, Wii) sells 100k in the FY ending March 2019

I never understood the hate it got, it's the best in the series after MK8 in my book. That was because of "the casualz!!" Mario Kart Wii was criticised for being a casual game by many gamers, just like...

    When did you first notice that grafix had diminishing returns?

    in Gaming Discussion on 03 May 2019

    On PS3 and 360 to be honest. I remember the graphical leap from the N64 to the Gamecube was huge and I couldn't believe it. But the jump to Xbox360 just didn't feel that big anymore. My first Xbox360 game was Oblivion and while it looked great, I didn't feel the better graphics helped me to get more immersed. Of course, an open world game like this would have hardly been possible on PS2 oder...

    On the Social Construction of Sex

    in Politics Discussion on 30 April 2019

    Sex is a biological fact. It is not socially constructed. "Gender" is also only partially a social construct as there are behaviours and characteristics that are overwhelmingly shown by only males or females. These behaviours and characteristics are based on biological sex. For example, some women are tall but most women are short compared to men and this is not caused by society but by genes and...

    At what point is this child abuse? Trans kids.

    in Politics Discussion on 21 April 2019

    I think there are some weird notions going around in this thread. 1) People overestimate how much agency children have over their opinions by a lot. As a parent, you can tell your child pretty much anything you want and your child will copy that belief. A child's life depends on their parents. Even children who are being sexually abused will side with the parent who abuses them, which is the...

    Now, About A Switch Pro...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 22 March 2019

    If there's a Switch Pro at all it will be a version of the console that plays the current "docked mode" on the go. Nintendo likes to release more powerful version of handhelds after around 4 years. But it's not going to get exclusive titles (well, maybe on or two so people have a reason to buy it) and it won't be a big step up from the current Switch. ...

    Your biggest wow moment of each gen you've lived through

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 March 2019

    NES - The NES was the first generation I played as a kid. I don't remember one particular "wow" moment, but I do remember I was wowed by Super Mario Bros, Adventure Island (2?), Duck Tales and StarTropics. It was like the gate to another world for me and those memories (I never owned a NES, played at a friend's house) just sort of amalgamated in my head into a very special and adventurous...

    pikashoe said: Why is the switch doing so well without big releases. Imagine what it'll be like when the heavy hitters start coming out this year. Probably because there is a large number of games on the system which target the mass market (Smash, Splatoon, 2D Mario, Mario Party, Minecraft, even Breath of the Wild, which is more like classic Zelda). It is very reminiscent of the Wii...
