    Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee looks much better than I expected

    in Nintendo Discussion on 13 June 2018

    shikamaru317 said: It looks good, but I'm really quite annoyed about the paywall they placed on Mew. You can only get Mew if you buy the Pokeball+ controller, and because it's a Nintendo accessory, you know that scalpers will buy them all up and sell them at 3x mark-up, so that's extra annoying if you're a big Mew fan like me. As if they would buy EVERY copy of the game that comes as...

    Team Sonic Racing gameplay footage

    in Gaming Discussion on 06 June 2018

    I will get this anyways but a few concerns: The early build will hopefully be polished a lot; my memory may be wrong but Transformed looked better to me than this. I hope they don't go too much Mario Kart clone with this one. Mario Kart has pretty much been killed on the arcade racing side, it's just rolling around and using items nowadays. The previous Sonic racing games felt very arcade-y...

    How many of you guys buy duplicate games?

    in Gaming Discussion on 21 April 2018

    I do this if: 1. I like the game a lot. Example: got Overcooked for X1, PS4 and Switch 2. I like the game a lot and play with different friends. Example: got Rocket League for X1, PS4, Switch and Steam 3. I like the game a lot and preserve a copy in case it breaks some day 4. I think the game might be worth more sometime in the future (not like a few days/weeks but years/decades) 5. I own a PAL...

    A Bowser Spin-Off?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 18 April 2018

    While I'd love to see some sort of adventurous platformer where you can spin around in the shell and stuff, I'd see a strategy game happening, placing your minions around the kingdom (groups, castles, bosses) to stop "intruders" (Mario lol) from accessing the huge castle in the center of the map....

    Are Nintendo fans more racist than PlayStation fans and Xbox fans?

    in Gaming Discussion on 15 March 2018

    I own a white, black and red Wii (couldn't find a yellow one; read: all Asians have to die!). So I guess if "every" Nintendo fan has to go to jail for racism, I'm fine....

    I want MarioKart to become into "nintendo kart"

    in Nintendo Discussion on 14 March 2018

    Just pointing out, the koopas are by no means just clones of themselves or other characters. Also, RolStoppable said: Your idea for unique specials will only break the game. The unique items in Double Dash!! sucked because they weren't balanced. It's only going to get worse if a greater number of specials needs to be implemented. Leave that garbage in the GameCube era. It...

    Why are a handful of VR users so adamant?

    in Gaming Discussion on 25 January 2018

    This thread is actually all about what it is trying to be against. People somehow managing to put themselves above others, in whatever way. Be it "I like VR, I can think ahead so me > you", "I don't like VR because reasons so me > you", "people who can't afford it are obviously against it so me/my money > you/rs", "I only buy games when they are on sale so VR is not for me, I don't waste...

    Why is Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze $60?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 25 January 2018

    I like how all my Switch games (most would be considered AAA/Must-have) have been around 45 so far. Even if DK is 60 in the end and not available any cheaper I don't see how Nintendo is the bad company (again) when the other platforms charge you 60+ for every game anyways and add GOTY, DELUXE, OMG to the titles to charge an extra 10-25 bucks....

    Which Is A Bigger Threat To Humanity? Science Or Religion?

    in General Discussion on 09 January 2018

    Both aren't a threat, it's humans who are and abuse those things. Even if religion isn't as important anymore, it still shaped society and life on earth and forever will. Some day us young lads will understand that religion is about everything and in no way just some words old people like to cite ;)...

    Why is German pop culture less popular worldwide than American, British and Japanese?

    in General Discussion on 14 December 2017

    The language definitely is one of the reasons. Most stuff can't even be translated properly without losing content. Porting stuff into German however is something people are capable of. Also, German "pop culture" is mostly just copying what's popular anyways. There's a great movie/story? Add 1-2 years and the Germans will come up with the same thing but less production cost resulting in a poor...

    I love short games

    in Gaming Discussion on 23 November 2017

    I love short games. But mostly when they have an arcade-ish feel, as in: make me beat the game over and over again (no story needed) offer something to shoot for (high scores, crazier difficulties) introduce advanced techniques (even if they are considered bugs and not features) that offer a deeper experience for high score runs (so no novel games, obviously, or small puzzlers that will have...

    Console gamers, why do you feel console gaming is better than PC?

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 November 2017

    d21lewis said:  I'd just like to know why you choose to be a console only "peasant", compared to the "Glorious PC Master Race". There could be many reasons and I wouldn't know if they count as real reasons for myself or anyone else. I guess it started with the easy plug'n'play which we could handle as kids. That moment when you plugged in the machine with 2 (!) cables,...

    I Was In A Car Accident *With Pictures*

    in General Discussion on 18 October 2017

    "So my insurance and the police have ruled I was not liable for the accident, so it is not my fault. Will the guys insurance fight that?" The insurance may not if the police delivers a proper protocol. But the guy may have his own lawyer who tries to fight it (if there's a chance; if he blatantly raced into you, you're good). "My mom said I need to get a lawyer to make sure my medical bills...

    I smashed my rebellious controller

    in General Discussion on 27 September 2017

    Reminds me of the good old console fights. The PS2 controllers would break (at least some parts inside) by dropping to the floor while a Gamecube controller had to be smashed into a brick wall at very high speed multiple times to crack open. I remember someone at a LAN trying to break his Gamecube controller. He ended up hurting himself with the controller that bounced off the ground without...

    Splatoon 2’s First Actual Splatfest - Mayonnaise vs. Ketchup

    in Nintendo Discussion on 21 July 2017

    fleischr said: Team Mayonnaise. +More delicious on fries +More versatile (you can add spices and flavors, make salads with it, bake with it) +When you put mayo on a tomato, it makes the tomato better. Put ketchup on a tomato and it's just plain repetitive. When you put Mayo on eggs/fat, it's so awful you are gonna puke. Not sure what's so great about fat on fat (mayo on fries) but...

    The Official Heavy Metal Thread

    in Music Discussion on 21 July 2017

    Nu Metal is like Djent. It's no real genre but a label. If you listen to bands that are put into those "genres", they are all pretty different which normally would mean another genre in metal. Singing style, guitar tuning, complexity and mood mostly differs but media will still call it Nu Metal/Djent. I'm into bands like Sybreed, The Interbeing, DVSR. And I came all the way from Black Sabbath,...

    How toxic are you on the Internet?

    in General Discussion on 18 July 2017

    If online gaming is any indicator, I am as toxic as the others. I will start of matches being nice, commenting positively and respecting all players (like saying "no problem" after a mistake on my team). But as soon as someone is starting to talk bad about anyone, no matter who (mate or opponent, "deserved" or not), I will act just like they do lol. The match is over anyways then because people...

    Zelda BOTW is the best-selling console game of the year despite a price of > $300

    in Gaming Discussion on 17 July 2017

    As soon as customers buy other games the price is just 70 for all purchases, future and past. It's not like 100% of Switch owners only got it because of Zelda. They are looking forward to other games already and paid 1/6 of the console's price just for Zelda at max....

    Which is the most significant (important) console in history?

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 July 2017

    While people tend to name the successful ones (not just huge sales but major jumps to previous generations), I'd also name the bad ones. Virtual Boy and Dreamcast are as important because they taught the industry how to not produce and market a device. Even if you are ahead of your time, don't do it that way. The masses only want small improvements so it's cheap and not too different from the...

    Will there be a market for a N64 mini next year?

    in Gaming Discussion on 30 June 2017

    It's too early, it needs generational hype (age 25-30 years) to print money. It's the same with everything (cartoon series, super heroes, ...), it gets a comeback when the once hyped generation is ready for the next hype. (some cartoons from the 60s/early 70s are the perfect example: revive in the 90s, revive now) What about the controller? Sticks get worn out today as well. In fact, my very...
