    Battletoads Gamescom Gameplay (Looks God Awful!)

    in Microsoft Discussion 1 day ago

    Gameplay looks slow and easy-ish, but the art style is almost perfect as far as I am concerned. Makes more sense to me than a “realistic” tae l8ke killer instinct, we are talking about beating people with anvil fists and ram horn heads. ...

    How does the Switch's third party support stack up to other Nintendo handhelds?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 August 2019

    Darwinianevolution said: It's good, but it could be better. It's definitively shaping up to be a great library, but it still lacks the amount of big JRPGs the 3DS had, not to mention the sheer variety the GBA and certainly the DS had. It's at least better than the GB at this point. You are surely right, but as a casual JRPG fan, all I needed to hear was “Final Fantasy 7, 8, 9,...

    Bold Predition Achieved: Zelda has outsold Mario! (BotW vs. Odyssey)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 August 2019

    I think both games are pretty amazing in sales, I did not expect Odyssey to surpass 15 million based on past 3D Mario sales. I am not as surprised to see BOtW surpass Odyssey, Nintendo got it really right with that game.I believe those expecting BOTW 2 to cut the first game’s sales are right, but let’s not forget that it was a one minute teaser. I don’t expect it to release...

    Nintendo quarterly results (Switch 36.87 million)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 July 2019

Also, senior moment: Super Mario Party sells 7 million and after 9 months, I can’t find a physical copy anywhere. You kids and your digital, consarnit, maybe I’ll have to try toys r us. ...

    When an interviewer asked Canadian comedian/political pundit Rick Mercer’s opinion on Trump he said (roughly) “He takes all the attention away from everything else, I wish we were talking more about Canadian politics.” Trump is an attention magnet. People who understood were warning the media during the primaries: all he had to do was Tweet something “stupid” at 3:30 AM and the entire news...

    Kid cries as his base is raided and his loot plundered in Rust videogame

    New Business Model for console

    in Sales Discussion on 19 June 2019

    Do we have a source for console makers getting $20/game? I find it hard to believe. I think AAA publishers would rather pay fees bc it makes all the extra DLC crap look more reasonable. I am seeing many games trying for deluxe packs or “season passes” at $120-$200 Canadian. It already looks crazy as it adds 50% to 120% to the price, but it would look that much worse if the manufacturers...

    Rumour: Sony's PS5 is definitely more powerful than Microsoft Project Scarlett

    in Sony Discussion on 17 June 2019

    Instopped caring who was more powerful with Xbox 360 and PS3 and the difference becomes more irrelevant with each new gen as far as I am concerned. Everything looks amazing to me. Here is a different prediction: without knowing anything else about them, I believe PlayStation will be the clear sales winner. I don’t think Microsoft cares anymore, hence almost all their exclusive games appearing...

    Breath of the Wild 2 will take place in the same Hyrule.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 14 June 2019

    It is a concern, but it could be perfectly fine: Fill world up with new enemies Fill world up with caves / dungeons Update locations like Tarrytown and Hyrule castle and the divine beasts To me the world is big enough that I will hav3 forgotten most of it...in fact I think BOTW is too big and I hope there are more options for faster travel. Anyway I’ll reserve judgement until we see way...

    Official Nintendo E3 2019 Thread!

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 June 2019

    I thought the first party content was kind of disappointing. Breath of the Wild 2 is nice, but at probably two years away give or take 8 months, and Animal Crossing only available in 2020 is not what I was hoping for. The Smash reveals were cool but how excited should we get for the chance to pay to add two more characters on the already gigantic roster? Is the mecha game first party.? I guess...

    How long until the House of Representatives begins Impeachment Hearings against the President of the United States?

    in Politics Discussion on 31 May 2019

    I don’t love Trump, but what is the worst thing In the Muller report*? I keep hearing there are “many” impeachable offences but nobody has come up with anything really juicy. When the process started, didn’t we hope to hear they found a bunch of emails showing Trump and Putin outlining their plot and signing off with, “Let’s screw America hard, HAHAHA”? As for re-election, I think the...

    Mortal Kombat Developer Diagnosed with PTSD

    in Gaming Discussion on 13 May 2019

    I guess I should read the damn article, but what I could see being the “shocker” here is finding out that many of your coworkers are ok with or even excited for watching real life reference content to get a fantasy Mortal Kombat fatality to look better. As for personal responsibility vs. company responsibility I think there should be a balance, and I don’t know enough facts to debate it...even...

    Star Citizen. Finally someone calls a spade a spade. Scam.

    in PC Discussion on 08 May 2019

    I think kickstarting any game to the tune of hundreds or thousands of dollars is foolish for ordinary folks. If you’re wealthy, that’s a different story, but I’m betting we have more than a few people who hurt themselves financially for this game. If it’s your life’s dream, put in 200 bucks and have faith that enough other nerds will help. AI combined with a small team of visionaries will...

    On the Social Construction of Sex

    in Politics Discussion on 02 May 2019

    There is an element of social construct of course, but the phrase “simply a social construct” seems to imply zero recognition of the biological differences which are also an element. There is evidence that this point of view may be causing harm, e.g. lower academic achievements for boys, or the nearly literal book burning mentioned above. Is a book burning is okay as long as the books don’t...

    The PS4 Won The Console Generation By Being Boring: Can The PS5 Do The Same?

    in Gaming Discussion on 30 April 2019

    Article: sort of right, but maybe not for all the right reasons. Microsoft took risks, but forgot about gaming, just see the supercut video of the XBox unveiling where the presenters say “TV” 500 times followed by a trailer of COD with dogs. Kinect always on was a disaster, and nobody wanted to pay $100 extra for all that. Also, don’t forget that Sony tried to be the be-all end-all set top box...

    Sony to crack down on sexually explicit games |Update: Specifically Japanese games containing underage characters

    in Sony Discussion on 24 April 2019

    I question whether Sony is implementing a broader anti-sexualization campaign and trying to obfuscate it behind the “only underage” banner based on Devil May Cry...or is the female character in DMC “supposed” to be under 18? I can’t totally argue with the underage stance, Japan’s permissive stance on media depicting sexualized young girls is disturbing to me and I don’t like how it is even...
