    Now that FF7-R is Real, a Wish List

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 17 June 2015

    Square Enix has a tough job ahead of them. I think everyone has a vision in their head about what FF7-R should be, and trying to satisfy all of them is not going to be easy. For myself, I'll be content to just get a great game. To that end, there are a few things I'm looking to see Square do with this. 1. Ditch the fixed camera perspective. It's pretty much a given that the environments in this...

    Where are console sales baselines going to settle in 2015?

    in Sales Discussion, last active on on 05 January 2015

    2015 is shaping up to be quite a year. Coming off what some consider a disappointing year all around, we're supposed to start seeing a lot of interesting releases over the next 362 days. Something I think we all welcome. Still, I think a lot of us are wondering how things are going to shake out now that the first full year has passed for each console. With the holidays come and gone, consoles...

    The Problem of Standard Pricing, Non-standard Value

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 23 April 2014

    Video Games are an odd medium. It's new, and still trying to find acceptance and identity in the mainstream. Unfortunately, standardized pricing is really holding this industry back. In the US, prices are pretty standard.With few exceptions, $60 for a new console game is the magic number. But for that $60, what do you get? 5 hours of content? 10? 40? 100? Despite having a standardized price, the...

    How Will the Gaming Industry Crash?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 01 March 2014

    For several years now, people have been talking about the next "video game crash." That the out-of-control budgets and general stagnation of the industry will cause the big companies that define the industry to fail, taking much of the edefice down with it. Or something like that, I've heard a few variations. I'm...skeptical about this idea, but I don't think it's out of the realm of...

    So how are your predictions?

    in Sales Discussion, last active on on 18 February 2014

    It occurred to me recently that, since I'd started posting here, I hadn't really paid too much attention to the various predictions I've made. I liked to think I had a pretty good track record, and I'd laughed at some of the more ridiculous soothsayers, but I'd never really thought about how well my predictions had performed. So, in the end, I did some digging, and... Total Number of...

    What makes a good rumor?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 14 February 2014

    There are always a ton of rumors floating around, and it's hard to know which ones, if any, are worth considering. And people have different standards, there's no doubt, with respect to what they'll believe. The question I ask is what factors contribute to your willingness to invest in a given rumor, short of confirmation? Or better yet, what makes a "good" rumor? ...

    It's Been a Few Months: How is the 2DS Doing?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 30 January 2014

    Looking at Nintendo's shipment figures for the 3rd quarter, the distribution of sales during that time (Oct-Dec), in the regions the 2DS launched in ("The Americas" and "Other"), appears to be thus: 3DS : 370,000 units sold 3DS XL : 2,820,000 units sold 2DS : 2,110,000 units sold So, the 2DS outsold the 3DS quite handily by a wide margin, but couldn't usurp the 3DS XL as the best-selling...

    Seriously, Nintendo is not THAT Important

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 17 January 2014

    Because I suspect it will be an issue, let me preface this before I begin in earnest. Yes, Nintendo is an excellent publisher. They make quite a lot of great games. They've done a lot to advance the industry over the years. I'm not attacking Nintendo fans or Nintendo itself with this post. But seriously, can we admit that maybe they're not as important as some make them out to be? Let me break...

    Actually, Nintendo Knows Exactly What They're Doing

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 08 December 2013

    So, Nintendo at the VGX. There's been quite a bit of discussion about this, and while there are some who seem content with the announcement regarding DKC:TF, there seem to be as many, if not more, who are disappointed. Already, we're hearing calls that Nintendo is out of touch, that they don't get it, that they have no idea what they're doing. I disagree. I think they know exactly what they're...

    Will the PS4 weekly sales top the 360's best sales week in the US?

    in Sales Discussion, last active on on 25 November 2013

    Already, reports are coming in about Ps4 sales, more than a million units in 24 hours, making it (if I've heard right) the fastest selling video game console ever. From what I can find, according to figures on the site, the highest sales for any system during a single week in the US was the Xbox 360 the week of November 26, 2011, where it sold 1,040,452 units. Do you think the PS4 debut is...

    Is the FDA justified in banning Trans Fats?

    in Politics Discussion, last active on on 15 November 2013

    So, it looks like the FDA is gearing up to restrict the use of PHO's, or trans fats, in the United States. Studies linking it to heart disease seem to have broken the back of this particular camel, and lowered intake over the past few years seem to show consumers don't have much taste for it either. So...should we care? Is this the kind of thing they should do, or is this overreach?...

    United States of America 2.0?

    in Politics Discussion, last active on on 15 November 2013

    Looking at what's happening right now, and the conversations that have been taking place in recent years, I have to wonder if it isn't time for a change. It's an idea that has been rattling around in my head for a while now, but now I think it really needs saying...with an analogy. The United States needs a new operating system. The current version, Constitution, is slow, overly-complicated,...

    Does Video Gaming Need a New Name?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 27 September 2013

    Last month, I posted a thread that asked people why they play video games. There were a lot of interesting responses, but one of the more interesting things I noticed was that the majority did not vote for "Fun." Whether this says anything specific is more than I can say, but it did lead me to wonder about something. Is "video gaming" really an appropriate name for the industry? I'm not...

    A Problem of Exclusivity and Kingdom Hearts

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 12 September 2013

    This will probably come across as petulant or entitled to some...and maybe it is. For that matter, I'm probably not the first person to say it. But I still feel the need to bring it up. Because exclusivity has pretty much ruined Kingdom Hearts for me. I like Kingdom Hearts a great deal. I'll shortly be starting my second play-through of Kingdom Hearts 2, and I expect to have fun with it....

    What Part of Gaming Keeps You Coming Back?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 25 September 2013

    Seriously, why do you play video games? What aspect of the experience do you seek out to maximize your enjoyment of a game? Is it the challenge, pitting your mind against the system? Is it the satisfaction of grinding flat each obstacle it tries to put in front of you? Or maybe it's the sense of discovery you get from exploring every nook and cranny of the world? For me, it's the exploration of...

    Wii U Basic Disappearing From Online Stores

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 02 August 2013

    Apparently, the Wii U is being delisted at a bunch of online stores. Gamestop, Walmart, Best Buy, etc.. I checked some of these myself, and it seems to be true. Which means we're probably witnissing the end of the Basic Bundle as we know it. ...well, is this a good thing, or a bad thing?...

    Wii U: If You'd Designed the Wii U, How Would You Make it More Appealing as a system/SKU?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 14 July 2013

    The Wii U is in a tough situation right now, and most would agree that it's a lack of quality games currently available. While I'd say this is definitely true, if the Wii demonstrated anything it's that a system can be made compelling out of the box. By contrast, when I bought an Xbox 360 years back, it was to play other games than what came in the box (Marvel Ultimate Alliance). The question,...

    Has A Game Ever Grown On You, Or Won You Over The Second Time Around?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 02 July 2013

    While I was sitting, thinking about what to start playing next, I was struck by how often I've been forced to change my initial assessment of a game. Whether I'd jumped the gun and simply written it off early, or I simply "didn't get it" when I played it the first time, there have been times where I've gone back to it and found that I'd been completely and totally wrong. Not always, but enough...

    Is There Really A Need for Serious Gaming Journalism?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 27 June 2013

    Simple enough, really. When it comes down to it, most of the people reporting news in this industry are simply very vocal fans. There are exceptions, of course, but even at places like IGN or Gamespot, there can be a stunning lack of professional standards. Places like E3, which are ostensibly for industry professionals, are sometimes viewed as playgrounds by rookie reporters. And the credibility...
