    What makes a RPG's Class/Job System interesting to you?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 02 May 2019

    I was reminiscing about many of the great RPGs of yore' and all the interesting approaches that developers have had in how to make different character classes interesting to play. From stat growth/progression, to perks/skills/passives/abilities/etc., to class specific equipment, to backstory, to class specific speaking styles, to even the specific visual styles/movements/animations of each...

    Capcom just released a game on Nintendo Switch on a 16 GB Game Cart for $30 MSRP

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 15 May 2019

    ...and Dragon's Dogma does not require a download to play the physical game. This certainly sets a precedence going forward, now that Capcom themselves really really really do not have an excuse to not ship a full game on the dang physical cart anymore (especially if the game costs more than $30 MSRP and is smaller than 16 GB), because based on their own actions it is no longer a cost...

    Nintendo Switch's home menu takes up LESS than 200 KB

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 24 August 2018

    As it turns out, Nintendo's focus on OS Speed is the reason they went so light on system features (compared to Wii U and 3DS), and why they didn't even include Home menu music.The inspiration was from how fast the NES used to get people playing games so they shaped the OS design philosophy around that idea. Referenced...

    Diablo III took 9 months to port to Nintendo Switch

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 05 September 2018

    https://kotaku.com/the-diablo-iii-switch-port-took-nine-months-1828400479 Just so people have an idea as to just how long it takes to port a big game to Nintendo Switch.This also means a lot of late ports coming to Nintendo Switch this fall/next year probably weren't even started being worked on until sometime after December 2017......

    Nintendo's E3 Direct may be longer than last year's

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 12 June 2018

    Looks like the Nintendo Direct this E3 will probably be longer than 30 minutes! So, at the very least, there is a lot of room for more game announcements this year. :D Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3GgV6dsL18 Alternate Reference: https://gonintendo.com/stories/310625-twitch-reveals-their-e3-2018-streaming-schedule-show-nintendo-di...

    Games/Genres That Need More Clones

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 05 May 2018

    Whenever I see a ton of high quality FPS games, GOTY Action games, or excellent retro 2D Platforming games, or any common genre of video game, I appreciate it for what it is, but there is so much more variety of under-served specific gameplay types that developers could be making.Whether it is a unique spin or even straight up cloning and refining an already fun game. It seems some games have...

    Handheld Consoles always felt like a compomised experience before the Nintendo Switch.

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 30 March 2018

    Handheld Consoles have always felt compomised before the Nintendo Switch and it was never because of graphics. Not that the Nintendo Switch has zero compromises, but that there are few enough that the overall experience feels true to home console gaming.The Gameboy, Gameboy Color, and Gameboy Advance, While good for what they were, always felt second rate compared to the SNES, N64, and GC along...

    How do you feel about certain games coming to 3DS that are not also coming to Nintendo Switch?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 12 March 2018

    I have noticed more and more comments about discontent with 3DS getting games that are not also going to Nintendo Switch.People are fine with games like Treasure Tracker and Sushi Strikers coming to both 3DS and Nintendo Switch, and 3DS games being ported later to Nintendo Switch, like Azure Strikers, Code of Princess EX, etc. As well as 3DS franchises getting successors on the Nintendo Switch:...

    Nintendo Switch SP could be possible with just a Tegra X1

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 03 March 2018

    There has been some discussion about a Nintendo Switch Mini coming in the future, when Nintendo is able to get smaller, cooler Tegra chips from Nvidia that will allow Nintendo to construct a smaller more portable Nintendo Switch that can handle the heat constraints of this powerful system.However, it is possible Nintendo will want to have something to market sooner, in order to compliment Pokemon...

    Idea: Steam Curation Tool - Community Blacklists

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 03 February 2018

    The idea would be similar to say Ublock Origins or AdBlock Plus, where you subscribe to 1 or more community curated blacklists to clean up Steam's storefront making genre browsing much more viable again. Also, Whitelists would be cool too, as it would allow for advanced search of compiled lists in a more organic way (storewide). What do you guys think of this idea? Also, is there a browser...

    Hypothetical: Nintendo 10 Year Plan 2017-2027

    I was writing a response to this thread about Kimishima remarking that the Nintendo Switch’s life will be longer than Nintendo’s usual cycle:http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=234567And, it ended up a bit long winded in response, so I decided to make this its own thread, in discussing what Nintendo’s hypothetical 10 year plan may look like.   Early 2017 - Mid...

    Possibly Another Nintendo Direct Before February

    PS Vita: What could have beenů

    I am sure Sony has seen how well Nintendo Switch is selling, with Sony’s very own PSP/Vita pioneered concept “Console Quality Games On The Go”, they probably now have reflected on how they missed the mark on they market they aimed for, which Nintendo has hit so squarely.Seeing just how fast this gaming concept can actually sell, I think PS Vita is one of the most squandered...
