    Do you own a VR Headset?

    in Gaming Discussion on 29 November 2019

    Virtual Boy, yo! I think technology needs to go beyond the headset before it will go mainstream. Maybe when Elon Musk or some other tech geeks get the “direct-to-brain” implants going. ...

    I am here to accept the golden calculator award for guessing 83! Better late than never, right? Of course a broken clock is right twice a day, and I had the go make a prediction about user score. my user score guess was way too high at 78, I guess the review bombers are strong with this one, I will see if I land any closer in a month or so., but I thought it would start out higher, not...

    N64 vs Wii U

    in Nintendo Discussion on 14 November 2019

    KungKras said: N64, no contest.It was a bigger strategic disaster for Nintendo, because back then Nintendo had more to lose. But gaming-wise, it brought so much more lasting innovaton. OoT and SM64 are more important to gaming than anything on the Wii U, even BoW. Woah there! N64 was the bigger strategic disaster?  Nintendo lost around 90 million customers with Wii U, from its...

    N64 vs Wii U

    in Nintendo Discussion on 13 November 2019

    Interesting arguments, seems like we have a lot of “n64 revolutionary” vs “N64 aged badly” (both are true). I could definitely see RPG fans picking Wii U. I could definitely see local multi fans picking N64. I would like to see a lot more HD remakes of games from n64 era - not to mention nes. I think a lot of 64 games are just a dozen FPS short of glory ( plus a lick of HD paint would help). ...

    What if google stadia were to fail?

    in Gaming Discussion on 29 October 2019

    They won’t do anything that drastic in my opinion. Just pay for a couple of timed exclusives or put a couple of big games in the “free” service. Google does a lot of different things, but it fails often and doesn’t seem to mind. They are about failing gracefully and inexpensively...normally. But if they did I would bet on Ubisoft or a company close t them, bc Jade Raymond. ...

    Expectations don't matter

    in Gaming Discussion on 28 October 2019

    Expectations are impossible to ignore, I am reading thinking fast and slow by Daniel Kahneman and it proposes (with stats and scientific experiments to back it up) that your brain has basically two modes: the “fast” mode is biased, oversimplifies things and can easily be influenced by others. The “slow” mode is more unbiased but it uses up a lot of brain power and is prone to handing tasks right...

    We are not asking for new “IP” we are asking for new worlds. Can you remember stepping into the Mushroom Kingdom for the first time?

    Nintendo's game output is improving but still pathetic compared to Wii/DS era

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 October 2019

    I am with you, fine sir. Nintendo needs to pump out a few smaller games (at reasonable prices, none of this Link’s Awakening @full price crap), and they especially need to experiment with new IPs. I bet you are not a fan of Labo? That lineup actually produced 4 or 5 games, but I think it is “invisible” to many of us because we don’t want to go through the construction process and the software...

    Mario and Luigi RPG developers AlphaDream declare bankruptcy

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 October 2019

    If a big HD game is what killed them, I gotta say, that’s kind of fascinating: HD gaming, killing off small devs for 13 years. That said, tons of tiny indies have been pulling off HD games for a long time now, I would love to hear what “happened” over there. I guess maybe too many resources into remakes just prior to this project, too.... Hopefully Nintendo picks up the torch in some fashion. ...

    What Went Wrong? Wii U Edition

    in Nintendo Discussion on 27 September 2019

    I cannot quote on my iPad, but jumpin and rolstoppable covered most of the points. From the day of the revel you could see that Nintendo had rejected the exact premise of simplifying the controller and gaming in general that made the Wii a hit. How can you blame da casuals when the system wasn’t even made for them? One thing I would like to add is, Nintendo made a terrible misstep relying on...

    Rumor: Sony plans to launch the PS5 and PS5 Pro at the same time.

    in Sony Discussion on 26 September 2019

    I don’t like multiple personally, business-wise I question it at launch. It could work this time, but it didn’t seem to help Wii U or Xbox 360 particularly. Wild predictions: if this is true the cheap sku will be an internet-only console with lower specs and an assumption that the player will stream...or one sky will be portable to combat Switch. ...

    The Fall of Xbox - Video by Videogamedunkey

    in Microsoft Discussion on 20 September 2019

    I haven’t watched the video yet, but my 1 minute analysis of Microsoft Xbox one is: - focused too hard on set top box and Kinect advertising instead of games at the reveal - after about 1.5 years on the market, began retreating back to pc - now focused on cloud; next Xbox if it exists will be designed to serve cloud/game streaming, MS will focus on this battle 99% ...

    Battletoads Gamescom Gameplay (Looks God Awful!)

    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,...
