    Which console shall take the Iron Throne?

    in Gaming Discussion on 05 April 2013

    I'm sorry but your associations of consoles to GoT families don't make sense to me. How can Nintendo be Lannister ? GoT is basically about power, and the different ways of gaining it. For Lannisters, power comes from money, for Starks it comes from integrity and loyalty, for Dothrakis it comes from strength, for Targaryens power is just what they deserve, for Varys it comes from information, for...

    Wii U for 199 Euro

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 April 2013

    Actually there's more to the Amazon.de offer : - You get the white WiiU for 198€ - You get AC III or Zombi U for 25€, or Fifa for 29€, or Tekken for 34€ (20€ off) - They ship outside of Germany (got mine shipped to France for 5€ P&P) A few days ago you could also get the WiiU at 198€ + a free 32GB USB stick + New Super Mario Bros U for 35€ or NintendoLand for 30€. So you could get a bundle...

    To save Africa it shoud be re-colonized! - You have a better idea?

    in General Discussion on 07 December 2012

    Africa will get better when the rest of the world stops interfering. Europeans arrived there and exploited the land and the people, ruined everything, then left them with stupid institutions, arbitrary countries' borders and huge debts. Imagine you're used to work in a village and get food and a roof, and someday people you don't even know claim that you owe them more than you could ever produce...

    HMV London stores have stopped pre-order for WiiU

    in Nintendo Discussion on 23 October 2012

    That's not how economy and marketing works. People have a finite amount of money they can spend. You can work on marketing to convince people to spend a greater share of their money on your products than they normally would, and the most effective way to maximize sales is marketing where the sale takes place. But whatever you do, there's a limit to what people can spend. Problem 1 : If the...

    Pachter: Wii U won’t be “as popular as probably Nintendo thinks”

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 March 2012

    teigaga said: Jereel Hunter said:I'm not sure saying they "Dreamcast themselves" would be an accurate critique. The Dreamcast was succeeding, but Sega didn't have the money to keep it going. The problem with selling a high power console at a loss, your business model only works longterm if you can survive the initial losses.... which Sega couldn't. If Sega had the money to keep the...

    Pachter: Wii U won’t be “as popular as probably Nintendo thinks”

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 March 2012

    "if in fact it’s a lot like an Xbox 360 in terms of graphics, frame rate and control scheme" Control scheme is completely different and makes most of the added value of the WiiU over the 360 or any other console. In terms of graphics, it will be between marginally better and sensibly better, so it's not the same, but anyways graphics alone don't sell a console, as history has proven every...

    Best Buy Europe goes under!

    in General Discussion on 07 November 2011

    I've been living in London since january and was living in France before. Best Buy is actually the only electronics shop where I bought something here, as there are so few electronics shops in the UK and they're all overpriced and there's zero competition between them since they're all owned by the same group. Best Buy actually had good deals and I got my AV receiver 30% cheaper than it was at...

    anybody else get Rabbids travel in time 3D

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 April 2011

    I have the game (that's actually the only 3DS game I have so far). Not sure if I'll recommend it. The game is not that bad and has good elements in it, but it definitely lacks polish and balance. Some controls are not very well thought (for example, when you're suspending on  the green balls trying to balance from left to right, if you move the stick down even the slightest, the rabbid...

    Now that ME2 has settled around a 96 on meta, do you think it will be GOTY?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 05 February 2010

    ME was a good RPG with only a few technical flaws. ME2 is an average TPS with no genius. Of course the game is not bad, it's nicely polished and smells high budget, but still, it's definitely lost its way from the first one. Despite the US praising the game because they love shooters, it's definitely not a GOTY contender for me.About Heavy Rain and the 6/10 it got from Gamekult, that's really...

    Wii Ramblings

    in Nintendo Discussion on 10 January 2010

    The gamer community (by this I mean people who know and buy many games, not just the few names they've heard about) has always been a small part of the public. Almost every people I know who has a gaming console don't know anything about videogames, and only buy a game from time to time, generally the "game of the moment" that is advertised everywhere. And this includes Wii owners of course, but...

    Capcom leaves wii?

    in Gaming Discussion on 06 January 2010

    Well actually it's the french website Gamekult that interviewed some french representatives of Square-Enix, Capcom, Activision/Blizzard and Elecronic Arts about 2009. I've read the 4 interviews and all of them had a lot of sh*t to say about the Wii, except the EA guy who seemed quite pleased by how EA games performed on the Wii this year. But when you read the full interviews, it's like with this...
