    Official 2020 US Election: Democratic Party Discussion

    in Politics Discussion on 11 March 2020

    Biden is just a boring, slow version of Trump, he cannot win. Bad choice, DNC. Hopefully the VP choice can differentiate him, but do Americans really vote for VP? I was skeptical of Bernie’s chances too, but at least it would have been an interesting fight with more opposing policies rather than a, “My opponent’s policies go not too far enough!” ...

    How do you feel about the new Xbox One UI?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 04 March 2020

    Did this just come out? I played more than usual the last few weeks and I was not a fan, maybe I will have to check it again. For several years it feels like the Xbox one Ui has been trying to sell new games and community when all I care about is the game I want to play right now. I respect the community part since Xbox is a very “online” console, but it should be easier to find my games than...

    PS5 build cost more than 450 USD , Sony probably having a hard time deciding the retail price

    in Sony Discussion on 14 February 2020

    Only Sony knows what the game lineup will be like for the first 3 months. If they are very confident in it, go for $500, the economy is good. If the lineup is a bit weak, go $450 or even lower. edit: maybe they should care about the first 6-8 months...depends on launch date, which I assume will be Novemberish? ...

    Do you own a VR Headset?

    I am here to accept the golden calculator award for guessing 83! Better late than never, right? Of course a broken clock is right twice a day, and I had the go make a prediction about user score. my user score guess was way too high at 78, I guess the review bombers are strong with this one, I will see if I land any closer in a month or so., but I thought it would start out higher, not...

    N64 vs Wii U

    in Nintendo Discussion on 14 November 2019

    KungKras said: N64, no contest.It was a bigger strategic disaster for Nintendo, because back then Nintendo had more to lose. But gaming-wise, it brought so much more lasting innovaton. OoT and SM64 are more important to gaming than anything on the Wii U, even BoW. Woah there! N64 was the bigger strategic disaster?  Nintendo lost around 90 million customers with Wii U, from its...

    N64 vs Wii U

    in Nintendo Discussion on 13 November 2019

    Interesting arguments, seems like we have a lot of “n64 revolutionary” vs “N64 aged badly” (both are true). I could definitely see RPG fans picking Wii U. I could definitely see local multi fans picking N64. I would like to see a lot more HD remakes of games from n64 era - not to mention nes. I think a lot of 64 games are just a dozen FPS short of glory ( plus a lick of HD paint would help). ...

    What if google stadia were to fail?

    in Gaming Discussion on 29 October 2019

    They won’t do anything that drastic in my opinion. Just pay for a couple of timed exclusives or put a couple of big games in the “free” service. Google does a lot of different things, but it fails often and doesn’t seem to mind. They are about failing gracefully and inexpensively...normally. But if they did I would bet on Ubisoft or a company close t them, bc Jade Raymond. ...

    Expectations don't matter

    in Gaming Discussion on 28 October 2019

    Expectations are impossible to ignore, I am reading thinking fast and slow by Daniel Kahneman and it proposes (with stats and scientific experiments to back it up) that your brain has basically two modes: the “fast” mode is biased, oversimplifies things and can easily be influenced by others. The “slow” mode is more unbiased but it uses up a lot of brain power and is prone to handing tasks right...

    Nintendo's game output is improving but still pathetic compared to Wii/DS era

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 October 2019

    I am with you, fine sir. Nintendo needs to pump out a few smaller games (at reasonable prices, none of this Link’s Awakening @full price crap), and they especially need to experiment with new IPs. I bet you are not a fan of Labo? That lineup actually produced 4 or 5 games, but I think it is “invisible” to many of us because we don’t want to go through the construction process and the software...

    Mario and Luigi RPG developers AlphaDream declare bankruptcy

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 October 2019

    If a big HD game is what killed them, I gotta say, that’s kind of fascinating: HD gaming, killing off small devs for 13 years. That said, tons of tiny indies have been pulling off HD games for a long time now, I would love to hear what “happened” over there. I guess maybe too many resources into remakes just prior to this project, too.... Hopefully Nintendo picks up the torch in some fashion. ...
