    Polygon's Editor-in-Chief Twitter Tirade Against Nintendo

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 07 November 2017

    Feel free to close this thread if there was already one about this topic as it is fairly old news at this point (I think it happened a couple weeks ago), but I don't recall seeing one and it was pretty darn funny.   Anyway, Polygon's Editor-in-Chief Chris Grant had a bit of a Twitter meltdown after he believed that while showing his friend Zelda BotW his save data was overwritten. This...

    Embedded Golf Emulator in Switch Possibly an Iwata Tribute

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 20 September 2017

    This seemed interesting and touching enough to be worth sharing.  Basically, people digging through the Switch's firmware discovered a fully functioning emulator with the NES game Golf on it, complete with Joy-Con instructions for it, though there does not appear to be any way to launch it. This could suggest that old NES games are coming with updates to allow for new controls, but it was...

    Super Mario Odyssey (Very Likely) Has at Least 10 Kingdoms

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 05 September 2017

    I thought this was both interesting and exciting. As of this point we have seen four kingdoms via the E3 gameplay footage, which are The Metro Kingdom, The Sand Kingdom, The Wooded Kingdom, and The Luncheon Kingdom. While everything I saw suggested this was an awesome game, I was a tiny bit concerned that those four kingdoms didn't look large enough to meet the standards of a 3D Mario game, and...

    Don't Assume Nintendo Will Drop its 3DS/Handheld Line: Here's Why

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 26 June 2017

    This is something I've been considering writing for quite some time, but in light of Reggie announcing support for the 3DS past 2018 and the resulting, prevailing skepticism, I thought it was probably time to share my thoughts. Anyway, while I have no idea where Nintendo will go with their 3DS/Handheld line, I do feel that we are certainly in error if we assume Nintendo plans to phase it out....

    The Splatoon 2 Tournament Was Pretty Awesome

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 13 June 2017

    Did any of you happen to watch the tournament? That game is about as intense to watch as any I've seen, and the biggest surprise was that the Japanese team didn't actually win. I honestly assumed they'd sweep their way to the trophy, which they did through the first two rounds before coming up short in the final series. This is certainly one of the rare games, alongside Starcraft, that I enjoy...

    Downvotes on Article Comments

    in General Discussion, last active on on 11 May 2017

    This is something that has puzzled me for quite a while now, as it seems like the comment section beneath the articles is often awash in negative voted comments that were completely innocuous, including many that were actually hidden from view. I've experienced it myself and seen it happen to others who write the tamest of comments, sharing some opinion or observation. It's reached the point...

    17 of 30 NBA Teams Agree to Participate in NBA 2k League

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 04 May 2017

    I found this, as a fan of the NBA, video games, and the nba 2k franchise, to be fairly cool. Evidently Take Two, along with the efforts of a few NBA franchises, have established a League-operated esports counterpart (almost akin to their current D-League format). It works as follows:"The league will be structured similarly to the NBA; teams are operated by NBA franchises and feature five...

    Next January Will Be the End of Me; HBU?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 27 April 2017

    So it just ocurred to me that I may actually be consumed by the video game industry and all trace of me removed from society outside of the mandatory utility bills for months come the close of this holiday season. Why? I plan to get the following things:Scorpio: This reasoning mostly follows the same reasoning that I originally got the $600 PS3 when I already had the Xbox360: Back then I had no...

    It is Much Too Early to Worry About Switch 3rd Party Support

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 18 April 2017

    I just thought I'd write this thread in response to a few other threads recently posted that point to a few key AAA 3rd party games that have yet to announce any intention of supporting the Switch, thereafter implying that this is concerning. My intention here is to suggest that it's very much too early to worry about such things for the Switch for a variety of reasons, all of which I will touch...

    Will Sonic Forces Actually Feature Bubsy?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 15 April 2017

    This is something that went from a passing joke to actually being just a touch concerning as a possible reality. Personally, it still seems impossible to me, but as people have really slowed the image down and researched it a bit it doesn't seem entirely impossible. For those who haven't seen it, Nintendo recently released a trailer for the coming Sonic games in their recent Nintendo Direct, and...

    Who Would You Like To See Replace Spicer? (Fun/Not Serious)

    in Politics Discussion, last active on on 16 April 2017

    So I just saw another thread that seemed designed to prompt the community to tear itself apart, so I thought something a tad more lighthearted could be fun. The question I have is this: What character(s) (fictional characters included) would you like to see replace Sean Spicer were he to resign? If you've any photoshopping skills, feel free to employ them. I just whipped this one up myself, and...

    Is This Switch Upgrade Feasible?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 16 April 2017

    There is a new reality among the consoles, and that's the mid-gen upgrade. As someone who's actually rather excited to get the Scorpio (I don't have the xbox1 nor do I have a 4k player so it seems worth whatever price they slap on it to me personally, though if I had an Xbox1 I'd likely feel differently) I certainly can't claim to be totally against it, though I do wonder how they'll ever make a...

    Is There a Guide For How to Make Threads in These Forums?

    in General Discussion, last active on on 06 April 2017

    I feel awkward making this a thread so feel free to lock it as soon as there's an answer, but I really couldn't find an answer and wasn't sure where else to ask. I've no doubt it's literally staring me in the face, so apologies. Anyway, I wanted to start making my threads look more professional via things like font size, color, formatting and so forth, but while I used to know how to do so in...

    Repaired Left Joycon Test Shows Improvement

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 31 March 2017

    I should state upfront that I myself have not actually experienced any Joy Con issues, but clearly there were some people who encountered problems, including one of my favorite people at GameXplain. He sent in his Joycons to Nintendo last Thursday and just got them back (surprisingly fast turn around compared to when I had to get my Wii U repaired over a fucking fan that I could deal with in...

    There is Still Demand But No Supply of NES Classic

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 28 March 2017

    I doubt anyone around here is still thinking about the Nes classic, but I've been patiently awaiting retail availability of it since November. Every once in a while it occurs to me to look into the availability of it, where I (of course) find that it's not in stock anywhere. Step 2 of the process is to look at eBay and see if the price has come down, and instead find that they're still selling...

    Nintendo Should Right a Wrong: Star Fox Zero

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 15 March 2017

    I'm not going to pretend that with proper controls Star Fox Zero would be a masterpiece, but hidden behind those forced, clunky controls is indeed a great Star Fox experience... really, it's the one I've personally been waiting for since the N64 if the gamepad would just get the heck out of the way. The character designs were spot on, the atmosphere and sound design were excellent, the level...

    Share Any Zelda BotW Criticisms/Issues!

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 25 March 2017

    I know this sounds like a very negative thread from the title but I had limited space to explain lol Basically, I thought it would be interesting to share any perceived problems or minor issues with the content in the game itself, as there might be solutions that we're unaware of at the moment. To be clear, at about 70 hours in I love this game more than any I've played in ages, so I'm not...

    Should Switch Have Another "Sports" Title?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 06 March 2017

    For once I think I'll be able to keep a thread fairly short... I know a lot of people might react with hostility to this as it might be seen as heading in the wrong direction again, but I really think the Switch should have a new "Sports" title akin to Wii Sports. The thing is, those Sports titles were, for most who played them, undeniably fun (at least when played with friends), and when...

    Do You Prioritize/Care About Local Multiplayer?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 05 March 2017

    I thought I'd give an account of my experience with local multiplayer (so you can understand the context my opinion is rooted in) and then ask whether you've all had similar or different experiences and just how much local multiplayer actually matters to you. Early Experience With Local Multiplayer Early on local multiplayer was considered awesome when done right, which technology made quite...
