    WHATS YOUR FAV GAME EVER AND WHY?

    in Gaming Discussion on 13 July 2009

    Super Mario RPG. It was fun. It was funny, the graphics were amazing, its spawned two RPG series (Paper Mario + Mario & Luigi) totalling 6 games. There's really nothing else to say about it other than it was a blast to play, and loved every moment of it....

    Your gaming regrets thread

    in Gaming Discussion on 13 July 2009

    In my teens, I had a real thing against stylized and cel-shaded graphics, despite being a big Nintendo fan. Because of this, I didn't play though Wind Waker, Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door and others. I've since bought them, though.These days, ironically, I think I prefer stylized graphics, and seeing the unique graphic style has been a big factor in a number of my recent game purchases,...

    If Activision pulls support on the PS3, how much will it affect the console

    Is Flower, Sun and Rain(DS) Any good?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 July 2009

    :( I came in here thinking it would be about three separate titles, one of which was Flower for the PS3.Flower on the PS3 is, however a very good game, and is the only game that actually makes half-decent use of the Sixaxis....

    Must have GameCube games?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 July 2009

    Paper Mario: Thousand Year DoorMy younger brothers bought it a few years ago, and played it. I didn't because I was going through the whole teenage anti-stylized graphics thing, and thought the concept of a Paper Mario was stupid.Now that I'm older and love stylized graphics, I've been playing through it, and it is awesome. Not terribly difficult, at least not yet, but a hell of a lot of fun, and...

    Could DQIX and/or DQX make a breakthrough in NA?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 July 2009

    I know almost nothing about the DQ series other than they are crazy-popular in Japan, but virtually unknown in North America. I've never played a DQ game, and my jRPG experience extends to the 2D Final Fantasies, FF7, Pokemon and Tales of Vesperia. Can a fan of the series or anyone give any reasoning for why they are virtually unknown in North America? Is there any chance of either of them making...

    Dragon Quest IX First Day Sale:

    Best Scene in a game.

    PS3 getting a 360 favorite

    in Gaming Discussion on 11 July 2009

    Even if something is believed to be under an exclusivity deal, there's always a chance someone found a loophole, the deal wasn't as strong as was led to believe, or some other legalish way, such as how Phillips ended up with the legal right to make Mario + Zelda games for the CD-i after their SNES-CD deal fell through.While I highly, highly doubt it would be Gear of War, I'd love for that to...

    Why Wii Sports Resort will FAIL!!!

Second of all, you haven't shown a first party Wii gimmick game that has sold less that its predecessor (Excite bots....isn't Excite truck). Wii Sports Resort may not sell as much as its predecessor, but it will sell like a bleeding MF'er. The majority of the people who own the Wii, want games like...

    Was the DS the N64 reborn and has it lived up to or passed N64's potential?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 11 July 2009

    txrattlesnake said:  After over a decade of maintaining the Gameboy and later the Gameboy Color (based off of NES architecture) as the dominant handheld console, Nintendo released the Gameboy Advance in 2001.  And this handheld seemed to capture all the excitement and spirit that Nintendo had in the 16 bit era with SNES (it may have been a little more powerful than SNES -- it is supposed...

    Name the 10 games that you consider to be DS Essentials.

    In no real order:1. NSMB2. Pokemon Platinum3. Final Fantasy IV4. Mario 64 DS5. Nintendogs6. GTA Chinatown Wars7. Brain Age8. Tetris DS9. Mario Kart DS10. Dragon Quest IXThat list would cover most genres, have something for almost everyone, and generally be a pretty decent 10-Game collection, if a bit eclectic. That being said, there are so many good DS games, one could come up with a completely...

That's actually a possibility, if its legs end up matching the legs of even, say, Mario Strikers Charged, and Killzone 2  doesn't get much of a boost from holiday sales.   I don't think it will happen, but there is the possibility....
