    EA: "There isn't much room for other titles than 1st party on Switch"

    in Nintendo Discussion 6 days ago

    Haven't read the whole thread yet. Why does EA like leaving money on the table? Their investors can't be happy with that. I've found myself buying a lot more Ubisoft games lately, just because they are available on Nintendo consoles. The last EA game I bought was Mass Effect. This was just last year, 2019, on Steam for $4.99 on sale. Before that? Either Boom Blox or Tiger Woods PGA Tour...

    in Gaming Discussion 6 days ago

    HylianSwordsman said: This list is so full of great recommendations, and reminders of all the games I wanted to play but never got around to. Some of the top games are games I started, and enjoyed, but never finished so I didn't feel right putting them on my list. Others are sitting in my backlog, literally just lying around in unopened game cases. I'm sitting on a hoard of treasure like a...

    The Evergrowing Backlog of 2019

    in Gaming Discussion on 21 December 2019

    Ugh, my backlog is getting a little ridiculous. I still have Wii games I need to play. Hell, there are still a few Wii games I want to buy. Still some Wii U games. Still some 3DS games. And an ever expanding list of Steam games. Most of those are games I missed from the last gen, so when they go on sale for like $5, they are hard to resist. Being an adult sucks.  No time to play. ...

    Star Wars Episode 9 currently the 3rd lowest reviewed movie in the series by critics

    in Movies Discussion on 21 December 2019

    My take away? Holy shit, The Force Awakens got a 93%? That movie was hot garbage, and I can't believe they went back to Abrams for the third. I haven't seen the new one yet. I will probably wait a few weeks for when the crowds die down before I go see it. ...

I havnt checked but i throught Metacritic did as well.  Thats a shame, Maybe Metacritic can gain access to Gamerankings archives and use the missing info into there own site. I just checked some SNES games I know...

    Best Luigi's Mansion game

    in Nintendo Discussion on 26 November 2019

    Tagging.I haven't played the 3rd yet, so I can't vote. I am interested to see how this turns out though. The first 2 are definitely solid little games. I enjoyed both a lot. It has been a long time since I played the first, so it might be a bit of nostalgia, but I do think that the first is a bit better than Dark Moon. I enjoyed the large interconnected mansion a bit better than the separate...

    Would you pass on a game due to its art style?

    in Gaming Discussion on 13 November 2019

    When I was younger, I probably let that affect me. I never got around to buying Wind Waker for the GameCube. That stuff doesn't bother me any more. There is typically a reason a game has a particular art style. I will trust the developer on that. I care WAY more about how a game plays. ...

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

    in Gaming Discussion on 13 October 2019

    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
