    How bout dat Blizzard!? UPDATE: Blizzard responds with "China isn't involved please believe us!"

    in Gaming Discussion 6 days ago

    It is going to be easy for me because I don't really buy many Blizzard games. I was kind of looking forward to the new Warcraft III and maybe Diablo III once I got a Switch, but I think I will just pass on those. I have so many other games to play that there is no reason for me to support a company that pulls bullshit like this. ...

    What's the single best game Nintendo has ever created?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 October 2019

    curl-6 said: For me it's got to be Super Mario Galaxy. As others have stated, it's one of those games that's sublime to the point of near utter perfection. Everything from the tight controls, to the incredibly creative level design, to the wonderful music, to the beautiful visuals, it's superb in every single aspect. But tying all these brilliant components into a cohesive whole is this...

    d21lewis said: *malfunction**malfunction**system overload* 100% this. But back to the OP's question, I guess if I have to choose, I am going to go with The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. I was 15 when that game came out.  Ocarina of Time had just come out 2 years before, and was absolutely amazing.  It just blew my mind.  I couldn't wait to see what the follow up to...

    Nintendo's game output is improving but still pathetic compared to Wii/DS era

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 October 2019

    I expected to see a lot more evidence in the OP. Like charts or at least numbers on games released in each year of each consoles life. Instead, we got vague assertions. Vague assertions that are likely true, I just don't know how true without the actual numbers. And no, I am not going to do the work for you. And why are you comparing the current output with the Wii and DS? It would make...

    Favourite Gears of War Game?

    in Gaming Discussion on 06 October 2019

    I voted for Gears 2. Gears 1 was a great game, but 2 just polished everything up to make an even better campaign. On top of that it added Horde mode, which was a ton of fun, and much better than the standard multiplayer. I think I only played a little bit of 3, or was it 4? I am not really sure anymore. I've stopped playing the series. Once I was out of college, I didn't really have...

    What Went Wrong? Wii U Edition

    in Nintendo Discussion on 29 September 2019

    Mr Puggsly said: theRepublic said: Launch titles matter.  Where was the Wii U's Breath of the Wild?  If it came out in the first year of the console's life instead of the last, it could have made a difference.  Not to mention Super Mario Odyssey followed up as another hit title only about 7 months later.  That was just in time for the Switch's first holiday...

    Let's talk Metroid ( New Poll Added: Samus goes to Hollywood? )

    in Nintendo Discussion on 17 August 2019

    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 on 17 August 2019

    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. ...

    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...

    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. ...
