    Anyone else felt underwhelmed with the FF XVI reveal?

    in Sony Discussion on 17 September 2020

    Xxain said: ARamdomGamer said: I would whine too given how average the Bravely Default games are. True. It could be the best FF ever and they'd still bitch and whine because its not turn based. Soooooo, I assume the opposite is true. As long as its turnbased but avaerage everywhere else, that should be enough to appease them. In fairness, with the exception of...

    Anyone else felt underwhelmed with the FF XVI reveal?

    in Sony Discussion on 17 September 2020

    Ironically, I think the setting is one of the best parts. Maybe a bit too close to The Witcher / Game of Thrones which throws me off, but not too bad. It also reminds me a bit of FF IV in some way, especially in terms of some plot devices (from what it seems). My big complaint would be, as always, no turn based system; except this time it's even worse as there is not even a full party of...

    Over 3 years in, Switch is still missing basic features.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 28 July 2020

    Wman1996 said: Nintendo is my favorite video game publisher of all-time. They've had some very enjoyable consoles as well. I'm not merely here to spread doom and gloom. But Nintendo can use humbling and constructive criticism. We're over 3 years into the Switch's lifespan, and we still don't have basic features that were on the Wii, 3DS, and Wii U. That isn't even mentioning simple...

    If the Switch failed, where would Nintendo be right now in 2020?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 27 July 2020

    Player2 said: Running the business in damage control mode like the 3DS/Wii U days, but this time making money because the Switch was designed to do so since day 1 on the market. This is a very interesting point. Let's say the Switch failed, and sold between N64 and Gamecube numbers;around  30 million lifetime, which would be a disaster. (No matter how bad it went, the Switch...

    What's Your % Usage of Switch in Portable/TV Modes?

    What brand was your first console?

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 July 2020

    My first console ever was a GBA with FIFA at like age 6 lolThough I got Pokemon FireRed only a couple weeks later.My first home console was a PS2 slim 1 year later. Can't remember my first PS2 game though (I think it was F1 2004? Maybe Gran Turismo 3?) To be honest I am kind of surprised so few people started with handhelds before a home console, I would have expected it to be closer to 50-50 ...

    Did Nintendo save gaming with the NES?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 10 July 2020

    To be honest, my point is more so that the argument that it saved console gaming ignores the rest of the world and pretends it does not exist.In Japan, the Famicom was already a thing in 1983. So we can safely assume the Japanese would have still played consoles like they did.In Europe, the opposite was true, and there was no real console market. We can relatively safely assume that the Master...

    What age did you Graduate at highschool?

    in General Discussion on 09 July 2020

    18 (really 16 for mandatory education, the last 2 years before college are technically optional) To be honest I feel this is a better question for college, as in when did you finish college (if you went to college of course); since repeating years and dropping out is much more common in college than high school ...

Nintendo happened to be at the right place at the right time and capitalized on a vacant market. The crash wasn't this long dark ages.

    Did Nintendo save gaming with the NES?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 July 2020

    In the US? Yeah maybe. Worldwide? Hell no.In Japan consoles were just keeping business as usual. So there would certainly be tons of consoles being released in Japan, and I imagine at least one of them would have been sold internationally and exported. If Nintendo had decided not to export the NES to the US for some reason, maybe Sega would have and instead we'd have threads about "Did Sega save...

    Thoughts on 69.99$ games for Next Gen Consoles?

    in Gaming Discussion on 06 July 2020

    Video games have costed roughly the same since like the 90s, so really it is not that bad that they went up slightly with inflation. I don't like it but it is an unavoidable reality. 60$ in the 90s is worth more than 70$ in 2020I will also say that I have already seen some 70€ games here in Europe several years ago. They were not common and if you looked for other retailers you could usually...

    What are the main reasons Why Xbox One Sold Far Less than PS4?

    in Sales Discussion on 26 June 2020

    The reveal was absolutely abysmal, and a contender for worst reveal ever of a console. Yes, the reveals of the Sega Saturn and the Wii U were still somehow better than the Xbox One's. Let us recap what a disaster the start of the Xbox One was:-100$ more expensive-Less games (even if PS4 did not have that many exclusives early on either)-Used games are banned (even if that got rectified, it left...

    PS5 will far outsell Xbox Series X, predicts analyst - what's yours ?

    in Sales Discussion on 20 June 2020

    I wonder if the Xbox Series X could have a Wii U problem in that the name leads to confusion about it being some sort of revision of the Xbox One X. Even my friends who are into gaming barely know the name of the new Xbox lol (while PS5 everyone will understand is the next Playstation). Anyways my prediction is 60 million for Xbox Series X (so slightly above the Xbox One) and 100 million for...
