    Let's talk about Metroid

    in Nintendo Discussion 3 days ago

    Great thread. This is quite possibly my favorite franchise in all of gaming. No worse than top 3. I think my favorite would have to be Metroid Prime, but Super Metroid would be a close second. ...

    Are you buying Borderlands 3?

    in Gaming Discussion 3 days ago

    Funny enough, I just completed Borderlands 1 and all its DLC. I also just started in on Borderlands 2 with my brother and a friend. We really have no plans on picking up the 3rd. Maybe after a few years when it drops in price and comes to Steam. ...

    gamrConnect Presents: Their 979 Greatest Games, as of 2018

    in Gaming Discussion on 11 July 2019

    mZuzek said: RolStoppable said: Okay, it wasn't really clear what you were suggesting. In any case, the current system is fine because it's rigged against games with a low amount of votes. You said that any game without a vote receives 60 points from the given user, so that's a fine way to penalize less popular games. Don't think about turning the points system upside down. If...

    gamrConnect Presents: Their 979 Greatest Games, as of 2018

    in Gaming Discussion on 11 July 2019

    If people are worried about the end result, then they need to vote. That is the only thing that could possibly change the list. No change to the formula is ever going to change the fact that this is basically a popularity contest. Popular games will get a lot of votes. And Nintendo makes very popular games, so... ...

    When did you first notice that grafix had diminishing returns?

    in Gaming Discussion on 10 May 2019

    The_Liquid_Laser said: mZuzek said: You're not easily impressed, are you? Heh, maybe.  It might be that I'm impressed by different things though.  Part of the diminishing returns in generation 8 is that higher resolution can make things look worse.  Like I played Spider-Man last year, and the city looked beautiful but the people looked terrible. ...

    in Gaming Discussion on 07 May 2019

    goopy20 said: I haven't. Sure, there were a few games on the ps3 that still look great today like Uncharted 2. But that is just because developers like Naughty Dog are masters at working around hardware limitations and kept the level design simple. However, compare Red Dead Redemption to RDR2 and the difference is pretty obvious....

    When did you first notice that grafix had diminishing returns?

    in Gaming Discussion on 02 May 2019

    It was definitely the 7th generation for me. So around 2005 or 2006. Sure the games looked better than what was on the Gamecube or Xbox, but not by that much. And more often then not, the increased focus on graphics also seemed to come with less in game content. I want more game modes, more levels, more options. I don't care if the graphics have to take a hit to get that....

    The Blues advance and now they face Dallas. To be honest, I thought Nashville would be a much easier match up. I was also hoping that series would go the full 7 games. Should be a closely contested match up....

    Are exclusives anti-consumer?

    Intrinsic said: theRepublic said: I went with Other.First party exclusives are fine. It would not make sense any other way. Third party exclusives? Those suck. Especially if it wasn't a developer decision, and instead the publisher got money to make it an exclusive. Developer decision?  Publishers foot the bill for the developers. So the developers don't really have a...

    Kirby007 Reviews #2 Boom Blox

    COKTOE said: One of the games I would have bought with the Wii console had I been able to find one. Went to great lengths to secure one for about a year before I gave up for good. I can't imagine the shortages being any worse in other locations around the globe. Always wanted to try Bloom Blox but never did. Doubt I'll get around to it at this point. If you have a Wii U, you could...
