    To all the Battlefront Haters....

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 24 April 2015

    I am simply going to try and adress all of the main points of critisism being thrown at Battlefront right now.  It's not that I think this 100% without a doubt will be a perfect game, but I have never seen so many silly complaints.  So without further ado:   1) This is NOT Battlefront 3 I think this needs to be said right off that bat.  Battlefront 2 is a decade old...

    Sadly, I'm Just Not Sure Nintendo Can Impress Me Anymore

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 28 March 2015

    http://www.psxextreme.com/ps4-news/2945.html   ^This article almost hit the nail on the head for me.  My first console was an N64, and while I never thought it was better than my cousin's PS1; I didn't feel like it was worse either. Then the PS2 came out and the contest was just over.  PS2 had more games, and they were far more diverse too.  Same goes for PS3 and PS4...

    POLL: Most popular game at your midnight release?

    in Sales Discussion, last active on on 18 November 2014

    Since far too many games came out today (11/18) pretty much every Gamestop on Earth did a midnight release.  So what game did you notice most people were buying around you?   For me it was surprisingly GTAV - well actually that wasn't a surprise.  But it is crazy that a rerelease of a game may outsell all of its NEW competitors....

    Xbox One's biggest problem is gonna take more than a price drop to fix.

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 30 October 2014

    First off I want to say that this isn't meant to be some "DOOM Thread."  The X1 will certainly sell well enough to reach 30 or 40m and it is not about to fall into a black hole.  Also, I never owned in iPod or a Zune.   Simply put, the X1's biggest failure was losing the "It device" fight with the PS4.  I say this is the biggest failure because it is one that is going...

    I think the R9 290X doom was premature.

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 26 October 2014

    So the 980 and 970 came out and everyone acted like the sky was falling.  However I think a few things need to be pointed out:   1) The 290 series is around a year old at this point.  They went a full year with no price drops (Which is unheard of).  Of course the 900 series would look good! -Before you shout "BUT LITECOIN MINING" remember that the $700 780 Ti wasn't exactly...

    Disclaimer:  I am not a fanboy of either AMD, Nvidia, or Intel.  I have and currently do own parts from all 3 as they all make decent products, and sometimes not so decent as well ;). While I do think that this mentality is going away, I can't help but notice some people (Including oblivious console gaming websites) say the most rediculous things I have ever heard like "Hey as long as...

    Now I know doom threads have been done to death latily, but I really don't see that many people bringing this up:  Nintendo is about to face a massively uphill battle in the next 10 years due to a complete failure to lay any groundwork for the future: Terrible Online:The evidence is everywhere!  I have seen about a dozen polls on VGchartz asking Sony/MS fans if they would buy a Wii U...

    R9 390X details leaked: 1024 bit stacked VRAM!!!

    in PC Discussion, last active on on 12 May 2014

    I thought the 390X would be a 290X with the full 3072 SP's and a 15% overclock, but nope apparently it will also feature double the bandwidth!  Look out Maxwell: http://wccftech.com/amd-feature-generation-hbm-memory-volcanic-islands-20-graphics-cards-allegedly-launching-2h-2014/...

    AMD R9 295X2 Specs Out: GTX Titan Z Killer!

    in PC Discussion, last active on on 10 April 2014

    So I will some up the main points quickly: -Stronger than 780 Ti SLI, and so likely stronger or comparable to a Titan Z.  (Though at this point Nvidia will update their design some way to counter this I am sure) -Yes it is faster than 2x290X.  It is clocked higher and has better scailing. -Likely price of $1500 instead of $3000. -Built-on 120mm closed loop cooling system.  Yes...

    Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes getting a 73 on Meta.

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 18 March 2014

    First of all I am a massive MGS fan.  It is by far my favorite game series.  However it is getting a 73 on metacritic (As of 5am Eastern Time), and honestly I am not surprised or saddened.  This game was clearly a rushed glorified-demo that could have opened the floodgates for other big series to cash in by dividing their games in two. I think this will spurn Kojima to work even...

    What ND should do about a TLoU sequel...

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 16 February 2014

    So it seems to me that a lot of people want Naughty Dog to let The Last Of Us be a solitary Gem of a game with no forced sequels (I am in that camp).  Other people will take any excuse they can get that allows them more TLoU brilliance (Hard not to be in this camp). But what if Naughty Dog did a sort of...compromise.  While I do feel like a full game would be a little forced; I do...

    The other day I was out with some friends and a couple of them said they couldn't wait to get SSB on the 3DS.  The rest of us said we were basically done with handheld consoles, but that's not the point.  The point is not one of us knew of anyone getting a Wii U for SSB because either: a) The people who would buy it already had a 3DS that would play the game fine. or b) They just...

    Final Prediction for PS3 and Xbox 360 Total Lifetime Sales.

    in Sales Discussion, last active on on 26 May 2014

    I have just spent some time extrpolating data and I think the "HD Twins" will end up with: PS3: 95-105 million 360: 84-90 million   -Slim chance as of now that the PS3 will reach that 103m and beat the Wii, but it is possible if they released one more big exclusive along with its eventual $150 price. -The 360 will be lucky to get to 90m since its sales have just been falling off a cliff...

    Why Nintendo's software can no longer carry their home consoles...

    SImply put, they have been innovating in the software department less and less every generation.  Here is a list of great new IP's or at least massive series overhauls that have come out every generation.  I am not going to count predictable upgrades like BF3 -> BF4 situations.   I am talking about big overhauls like GTAIII -> GTA V:   N64 (8): -Super Mario 64 -Mario...
