Why did the Dreamcast fail?

<p>Dreamcast failed because Sega ran out of money. It is the Saturn that killed Sega, not the Dreamcast. Sega's finances were on fire after the Saturn failure. Sega wanted to make one last console so they wouldn't leave the console space on such a bad note.</p><p>The only way Sega could stay in is i...

Mega Man!

<p>Mega Man 8 is a 'hidden gem'? REALLY now? The atrocious voice acting, the 'gay' robot master, the terrible gameplay, you think this is good? And you think Mega Man 3 is the worst of the NES Mega Mans?</p><p>And you think the difficulty of Mega Man 9 is due to HD lag? REALLY? Tell me you are jokin...

2013/3/5: NES: Mega Man, Mega Man 2, Mega Man 3

<p>Critic, you have to play the games to review them. For Mega Man 3, you say Capcom got lazy. Why is Snake Man's stage 'repetitive'? You don't say, you just go on. (I always enjoyed the giant snakes. And a poster above me mentioned the music.)  You say a special weapon is needed to kill the gi...

Why Console Gaming is Dying??

Revenue is certainly not up. Game companies are falling apart left and right. THQ is about to implode. Interplay is nearly bankrupt.

Look at Nintendo's financials. They are selling 3DS and Wii U at a loss despite how expensive they are. Inflation is taking its toll.

Best 2-player games

I registered just to reply to this thread. 'Save New York' is a huge hidden jewel of multiplayer joy on the Commodore 64. Like Mario Brothers, the game can be played both cooperatively and versus... depending on the mood of the players! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMUvi6UIV3w Star Control 1 or 2 ...

What console is today's Dreamcast?

The Wii has sold the most games. Microsoft marketing is trying hard to make it seem that Microsoft didn't become the huge losers they are this generation by all the loud PR statements they make. Just like last generation, they've blown up billions of dollars with first the warranty issues of the Red...

Sorry state of on-line gaming

The worst thing about online gaming is how it is taking attention away from local multiplayer. Game consoles are about having friends over playing games together. Online gaming makes more sense on a PC since people cannot crowd around a desk and a computer.

How the pros mock Nintendo from Kotaku

[QUOTE=Orion Pimpdaddy]Honestly, as I was reading the article I got the feeling it was written by an upset 10-year-old kid.  Why was the author all sensitive about old marketing campaigns?  Of course if a company does well, it's going to be the target of negative advertising.&nbs...
