Re: Nintendo Is Being a Little Too Quiet

I don't think they're being quiet. I think, given their news feed and the online talk around it (much of which they must... encourage), I think they're pushing Nintendo Labo as their next "big" thing. Having put out Zelda, Mario, Mario Kart, and some Twitch friendly fighters, I think they...

Nintendo Is Being a Little Too Quiet

So, they came out of the gate swinging, right? Granted, their first two big games were also on Wii U, but they also had a steady stream of great exclusives. There always seemed to be at least one big game right around the corner. ....and then it stopped. Yes, we’re getting Yoshi and Kirby, and we’ll...

Re: Celeste (Switch)

Having just beaten the game on Switch, my opinion essentially echoes yours. It’s a great, engrossing game with a really good story, likeable characters, and a positive message. My only real complaints center around the controls. It probably has more to do with the joycons, but I found that, far too ...

Re: Nintendo Labo

And this is another thing that annoys me about many of the Nintendo diehards (a continuation of a previous rant). This is clearly designed for children, and for parents of young children (I am so stoked to play this with my daughter), but the complaints remain the same: -"When are they going to...

Re: The depressing reality of some Nintendo fans (a rant)

I think some fans' expectations can be a little unrealistic. I mean, the Switch hasn't even been out a year yet! And, there's been already been a Zelda and Mario game released. Yes, this Direct was a bit underwhelming for 1st party stuff, but it was just a "mini" Direct. Wait until future...

Re: The depressing reality of some Nintendo fans (a rant)

I always love a chance to rag on the group of over-obsessed Nintendo fans out there; they're unbearable to listen to. But unfortunately, I can't say that I blame them this time. "Good third party support" does not entail a bunch of ports and remasters of old games that Sony and Microsoft ...

The depressing reality of some Nintendo fans (a rant)

Okay, so I was genuinely impressed by the Mini Direct this morning. I like seeing that third parties are now giving Switch some decent support. Though the news of Dark Souls Remaster was generally met with praise, there has been a quite a bit of—-well, here are some examples of what I’ve read: -imag...

Re: Dark Souls Remastered

I know that it is a remaster of an older game, but this is the game that makes my purchase of a Switch 100% justified (goodbye, buyer's remorse). It's in my top ten favorite games of the past ten years, and having it on the go has been something that I have wanted since I first bought a Vita! Such a...

Re: I got a Switch . . & I like it!

Im going to disagree with that. When you look at the games that have been released, you can see that big 3rd party devs are testing the waters with the Switch. Bethesda with DOOM, Skyrim, and Wolfenstein 2. Rockstar with LA Noire. EA will most definitely release a Madden coming up. Yes, not much ha...
