    First console you bought for yourself, and why you chose it

    in Gaming Discussion on 27 June 2020

    Mine would actually be the Wii U in May 2015; the reason being that for the past year I was seeing games like Splatoon, Super Mario Maker and the like on it and hearing good stuff about them that I wanted to give it a shot. Plus I was off gaming for like a good three years (was watching and hearing playthroughs and news but not playing games) at that point so I was hungry to get back in. Plus,...

    Series milking old games and dependant on nostalgia way too much ?

    Can we agree Nintendo should go third party, now?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 08 June 2020

    They won't go third party in our lifetime to be honest. Many many people who keep imagining the doom and gloom thing don't even realise how powerful a position the company is in behind the scenes; since July 2018, they've got like something around $4 Billion cash on hand (likely a lot more now!) to spend on general developement projects, production, literally anything they want. So they're...

    Name ONE unannounced game that would make you instantly preorder a next gen console

    in Gaming Discussion on 01 May 2020

    A new WipEout game would be my choice; there has not been a new WipEout console game since Fusion back in 2002 during the PS2 era. Yes we've had HD and HD Fury but those were mainly HD remasters of the handheld games as they featured the same teams and tracks (but not all of them) from WipEout Pure and WipEout Pulse on the PSP and the Omega Collection was just a compilation of those (in effect a...

    Switch owners, did you have a Wii U/3DS?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 22 February 2020

    I got both Wii U and 3DS, both pretty late into their lifecycle. The Wii U was a fluke in that a store in the UK called Argos was doing it at a good bundle and discount back in May 2015; it was £180 for the Legend of Zelda: Windwaker HD special edition console and bundled game, with a £20 voucher, a Wii game in Metroid Other M and two Wii U games in FIFA 13 and Mario & Sonic: 2014 Olympic...

Oh right, now that you mention it! Almost forgot that one. I wonder if he learned from that or if he continues to be dick if his game doesn't meet...

    I quit The Last of Us after 5 minutes

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 October 2019

    Wow, and I thought Colin Moriarty had terrible judgement of arguing against reviewers (who completed the story and played a a great number of hours akin to RPGs) giving Breath of the Wild high scores by saying it's not that highly rated based only on two hours and not completing the tutorial area. It's very ignorant, but then again being a former IGN staff, can't spell ignorance without IGN. ...

    When are you buying the PS5?

    in Sony Discussion on 11 October 2019

    Depends how they approach the release of games; backwards compatibility aside, the PS5 needs meaningful exclusive games to make me dive in. I had to wait almost three years to decide to get the PS4, which had a very unimpressive launch line-up of exclusives (Killzone and Knack I did play on a friend's console and they were very average) as well as frequent droughts and remakes and remasters for...

    Sakurai: "No way" future Smash Bros. games will have as many fighters as Ultimate

    in Nintendo Discussion on 13 September 2019

    Daemon X Machina scores 75 on Opencritic and 71 on Metacritic

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 September 2019

    This game I was very interested in when I first saw it in June 2018, as I like hectic over the top stuff that's akin to PlatinumGames with the massive bosses and enemies, lots of action happening around you and so on. But, disregarding the score, there's simply too many games that have come out since then that I'm trying to get through right now as well as a lot of other stuff coming up this...

    Luigiís Mansion 3 will have an achievements-type feature

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 September 2019

    I don't mind this sort of stuff for the most part, but I do mind them when they're used as replacements for the game actually rewarding you with something, thus artificially and superficially extending the playtime meaninglessly. Like the Firefly medals in The Last of Us, or the silver medals in Sonic 06, which serve no purpose but to give you a useless achievement/trophy; if they gave us stuff...

    Favourite Nintendo hardware revision (so far)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 25 August 2019

    Has to be the DS Lite. It was so much sleeker, refined and tighter in design compared to the original DS; remember how big the latter was? And yet despite the smaller dimensions, the screens were not only brighter but the DS Lite has had much better battery life. ...

    Revisiting Breath of the Wild

    in Nintendo Discussion on 22 July 2019

    I've been reading through replies on this topic and I'd like to chime in; for those of you, how much of the distaste in Breath of the Wild is down to being so used to the same formula for almost 30 years? Is it (and I really don't like using this word) nostalgia fueling it? Is it the resistance to change? There's valid criticism for sure, but would you still be complaining if it was more of the...

    Recommend me some Switch games!

    in Nintendo Discussion on 17 March 2019

    Oh man, where do I start? The usual big ones in Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Splatoon 2 are the good bets; solid, polished, and fun while still being challenging (for most of them). Splatoon 2's DLC, the Octo-Expansion is very good and more challenging than the main game's single player story mode. For other exclusives, Bayonetta II is a great one;...

    Why do you keep playing a bad game?

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 January 2019

    I've never played it, but I want to play Sonic 06, just to experience how absolutely terrible it is! I've seen a lot of playthroughs of it and there's so many new glitches each time in each run that I want to not just experience how bad it is but how else I can screw up the game! ...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 09 January 2019

    In fairness, you could say the same regarding the PS4's and Xbox One's first couple of years, which didn't have a lot of new stuff worth playing for the longest time and was also filled with so many ports/remasters....

    Vita hits 16m

    in Sales Discussion on 11 September 2018

    People comparing sales of older consoles to the more recent ones is like comparing apples and oranges in a way. The PS2 and DS was from such a different era for their time when there was none of the stuff that exists now or were new for the time; there was no smartphones or tablets at the time for the DS to compete with, so of course the 3DS was going to suffer somewhat in an era of smart...
