Re: Why do people like RPGs?

Personally, my experience with RPGs - JRPGs in particular - has been mostly negative. Nevertheless, I try and play at least one or two RPGs a year, hoping that something will click somehow but it hardly happens. One thing I dislike is that, to me, it feels like I am playing the same game over and ov...

Re: Does Nintendo hate money?

I don't know what's the matter with them but the strategy seem to be working. With the NES Mini selling out in a blink of an eye, they have basically made sure that every Mini console they make is going to fly off the shelves, because these things are now perceived as highly sought after, valuable t...

Re: What Franchises Need to Return

Arcade sport games. I'm european so when I say "sport" I actually mean football. And when I say "football" I actually mean soccer. You know, like SuperSideKicks or even the late 90s Winning Eleven games. I think it's about time we go back to making football games where your playe...

Re: Wii games to play with your wife

+1 for Kirby Epic Yarn. My ex girlfriend was a non-gamer and she loved it. You can play the whole game 2-players and you can actually cooperate. You can't die so there's absolutely no frustration, and it's just the cutest thing ever. I think it's really good if you want to play a 2-player game where...

Re: The SNES mini is Nintendo's last chance for me

I'll never understand the unconditional "love" for Nintendo. They make good games, fine, that is the minimum that a videogame company is required to do. But when it comes to every other aspect of videogames beside the videogames themselves, they are really the worst company in the business...

Re: I Like Short Games

Not sure I agree with this. Of course I dislike games that take hundreds of hours to complete - mostly because I know that these games are based on repetition and grinding. But I would never say I prefer short games. As an adult, I am extremely concerned about how I spend my hard earned money, and I...

Re: What are the most overrated and underrated consoles???

Underrated, I dunno. It seems to me that almost all consoles have been re-evaluated and have developed a cult following now. Probably the WiiU has good chances of becoming the most underrated console of our times in the next decade. It has a very good library of games. Overrated, easily the 3DS. It ...

Re: The Decline of Electric Guitars

I do agree with the above statement - there hasn't been one TRULY GREAT guitar band in ages, and by truly great I mean one that could mean something to people from different countries and different social classes. There is a number of big guitar bands, like Muse or Foo Fighters, but their appeal is ...

Re: The Decline of Electric Guitars

With hindsight, Jay-Z headlining Glastonbury in 2008, making fun of Wonderwall with a white Strato around his neck, was a very bad sign of things to come. Now, rap and pop have always dominated the charts, but at least up until a decade ago, there was a huge presence of guitar based music, people wh...
