Re: Governments do not like loot boxes!

Not to get into too political a discussion, but I am not a fan of loot boxes, but am less of a fan of government handling something that should be left to parents and markets. It was not the law that removed loot boxes from Star Wars Battlefront; it was the market. It is not really the law that kee...

Re: Nier: Automata

Keep at it as this is ONE OF THE GREATEST GAMES EVER MADE. I say that with no hyperbole. I, too, loved the first NieR but Automata really is a superior game in every regard including story. Speaking of which, only endings A - E (the first five endings) are officially considered part of the story. Th...

Re: It took Axiom Verge on the Switch to get me excited about gaming again...

I played this on the Vita and it’s amazing. I’ve loved 2D Metroidvania games for the last 20+ years and Axiom Verge is one of the very best. I’m planning on getting the physical release on Vita for the Collection. Hopefully soon.

Re: Best game on every console you've owned?

My OCD nature means that I like organization, and therefore lists. Great choices; fun read!

Re: Emulated vs. Original format?

Most RPGs (and Strategy RPGs) from back in the day benefit from save states, no question. By the end of the 16-bit era, game devs had realized how tedious it was to grind for an hour, get destroyed by a boss and then have to grind that hour again and hope for a better outcome with the boss. Save poi...

Re: Best game on every console you've owned?

Oh wow... I don’t know if I can remember every console I’ve owned! Let’s see if I can do this off the top of the dome. Atari 8 bit computer - Oils Well NES - Mega Man 2 Game Boy - Donkey Kong ‘94 Genesis - Shinobi III Game Gear - Aladdin SNES - Zelda: A Link to the Past TG16/PCE - Soldier Blade PCE-...

Re: Best Wario game?

I’d give a third nomination to Warioland 4. Amazing execution and very unique in Nintendo’s bloated 2d platforming catalogue. ESauce already mentioned it, but I’ve always found Shake It! to be one of the most underrated games on the Wii. Continues Wario’s trend of unique platforming, it also has gor...

Re: Best casual games?

How about Tetris? The original universal (casual?) game! I don’t know that I’d classify Persona 3 as a casual game. JRPGs are something that really only core (or “hardcore,” if you will) type gamers play. I just can’t see someone who is only superficially into games spending 95+ hours on a very visu...

Re: Nintendo Labo

For people defending Nintendo’s pricing on this thing and telling detractors to reserve judgement before calling it a half-baked $60-ish game and $10- 20 worth of cardboard, remember that this is Nintendo. I don’t think it’s unfair to look at Nintendo’s history; even their recent history. 1-2 Switch...

Re: Sega Dreamcast/Sega Naomi emulation incoming for the Nintendo Switch!

While this is great, I certainly *hope* a modern system like the Switch is able to emulate 20 year old hardware...
