Re: I love Switch, but....

Nintendo has created this weirdly-complicated legacy for themselves. Don't get me wrong, Doom and Skyrim were day one purchases for me, but----I could have picked them up for PS4, where they looked better, ran better, and were cheaper. The portability aspect was a huge selling point for me, but mos...

New Icon Idea - can the game be beat in one sitting?

So, I usually have 1 main game that I play at a time, and this is a game that cannot be beat in one sitting. Anything with a password, or is saved to a memory card/hard drive. However, if I need a break from that one game, I'll play a game that doesn't require a continue, like any of the super mario...

Re: High Score Book

This is great! I used to do this as a kid, but I think I'll start up a book again. This will motivate me to play more 2600 games.

Re: 2018/5/14: Playstation 3: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Alright... so I finally reset my password to post again to post in this. Those of you taking a guy with a family who runs a review site as seriously as you are really need to chill the **** out. Seriously, as you get older you spend less time on games and those fun side projects and more time on wi...

Re: Capcom releasing Resident Evil 7 on Switch, In the Dumbest Way Imaginable

I don't see why this is such a horrible idea. I know many people who don't keep their old games, they basically play them to completion and trade them in. To them, they will never replay that game again, so why keep it? Is this any different than renting/streaming a movie? Imagine you always had to ...

Re: Terrified of a Digital Future

i don't know about music and spotify, but streaming movies and tv has several issues. First, they are being parceled out among many providers - Netflix, Amazon, HBO, Hulu, etc. So its not a single subscription, its many. Second, content may only be there a limited time. A hit movie is on Netflix fo...

Re: Terrified of a Digital Future

For the record, I wouldn't characterize Netflix as taking away your ability to own movies on physical media. It's just a streaming service more comparable to television networks. Likewise the most popular medium for music is streaming, which is more akin to listening to the radio. Digital downloads...

Re: No quality control

Critic, I think you have become so scorned about "online" that you are connecting dots that aren't there. We have had TV programming "as a service" (Netflix, Hulu, etc.), but the quality hasn't suffered. Have you seen Stranger Things? Modern games have bugs because they are comp...

Re: VentureBeat article "Consoles need to ditch discs and embrace digital downloads"

I disagree with this point. All you need to do is look at the music industry. Cds are no longer in Best Buy, and there's very few now in Target, Walmart, etc. Has this hurt the record labels? Not at all. They have embraced the streaming model and record labels are making record (excuse the pun) pro...

Re: VentureBeat article "Consoles need to ditch discs and embrace digital downloads"

Like everyone else here, I completely disagree with the article. But it does hint at a notable point -- it's likely the retailers that will keep physical releases going for years to come, more so than consumers. It's all about the money. Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo don't care much what we all thi...
