    "Why Did I Wait So Long To Play This?!"

    in Gaming Discussion 3 days ago

    Almost everything I play is way late. It is tough finding the time as an adult. I just finished up getting 5 stars on my profile for Super Mario 3D Land. Solid game, but probably my least favorite of all the 3D Mario platformers I have played so far. I just finished finding all the Boos in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. The 3D effect is fantastic on this game. Still, I think I prefer the...

Thanks.  I pulled up the genre on GameFAQs.  Most of the others sound like shovelware.  The only other two that remotely sounded like they could be good were Ghost Squad and Link's Crossbow Training. ...

    Will PS5 repeat the success of the PS4, and achieve 50 % marketshare?

    in Gaming Discussion 6 days ago

    Snoopy said: DonFerrari said: So will you show the sales and profits numbers from SoT to prove the point? The game had over 10 million players early this year, while DKC maxed at about 8 users at best. So that shows SOT if more popular by default and obviously they are making a killing with Microtransactions, game pass, and retail sales. Microsoft doesn't show sales for...

    Do you think Nintendo killed off the Wii too early

    in Nintendo Discussion 6 days ago

    Darwinianevolution said: DonFerrari said: If Nintendo had supported Wii even longer then WiiU would have even less games ready. Nintendo only took Wii out of the market when it was barely selling anymore, but SW support they removed long earlier and that is a possible cause for the sales of HW to plummet so hard. They didn't need to support it at 100% of their dev power....

    What's the last movie you saw in a theater?

    Parasite. After it won Best Picture, my local theater was playing it. My wife and I went and saw it knowing nothing about the plot. We both loved it. Amazing movie. ...

I have a nice size collection and with the exception of Twin Snakes and Ikaruga didn't think anything would be abnormally valuable.

    Symmetrical or asymmetrical analogue sticks?

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 July 2020

    Asymmetrical. On a Xbox controller, my thumb naturally lands on the thumb stick, which is what I use most of the time. On a Playstation controller, my thumb naturally lands on the D-pad. I am forced into an unnatural position to use the thumb stick. ...

    RUMOR - A NEW Hope - Decanonization of the sequels possible

    All I know, is I never want to see Kathleen Kennedy or J.J. Abrams name on anything I care about ever again, Marvel is so lucky to have Kevin Feige. I am always going to be pissed that they screwed up the last chance to have Hamill, Ford, and Fisher all together. ...

    Thoughts on 69.99$ games for Next Gen Consoles?

    Best looking Nintendo console (Design)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 24 June 2020

    NightlyPoe said: Personally, I'm a big fan of the North American SNES. I think I'm in the minority on this one, but I love its simple design and light-purple color scheme. It is close to just being a box, but the few extra elements they add with the small, slight concave top and the use of the light purple on the power and reset buttons, even the design of the controller ports add just...

    Greatest return to form for a franchise

    in Gaming Discussion on 12 June 2020

    For me, probably Super Mario Galaxy. Don't get me wrong, Sunshine is a pretty damn good game. Still better than most games out there. It just felt...not quite right. It didn't live up to the standard I was expecting. I think FLUDD was a mistake. I thought the best parts of the game were those little levels were Shadow Mario would steal FLUDD. Those parts actually felt great, and it made me...
