Re: Gaming rumors that do/have annoyed you

Okay, I think that I'm writing this more out of frustration than anything else. The latest rumors that are annoying me, to no end, are the constant "Nintendo set to unveil the NX this week.....wait, no. NEXT week!" This is one of those strange situations where I'm annoyed at all parties. I...

Re: Gaming rumors that do/have annoyed you

When I look at my Google News there's always an article or two about the "latest NX Specs and release date" but it's always just the same old rumors and speculation that have been tossed around the last three months or so. Click bait is what it is. The internet sucks (except for this site...

Games That You've Beaten in 2016

Tonight, I finally finished a game that I have wanted to beat for over twenty-five years, and that game is Robo Warrior for nes (strangely, an old game that actually gets EASIER in later levels!). I always tend to keep track of the games that I beat, by year. So far, I have beaten the following game...

Gaming rumors that do/have annoyed you

Okay, like so many people I am very curious about codename NX (which, I believe, will end up being officially named the Nintendo Go). However, there is one rumor, that started just a few days ago, that listed the price at $450-500. For whatever reason, this rumor made me shake my head because it's i...

Re: Halloween Gaming

I'm personally excited about the upcoming Friday the 13th game! It looks like it has the potential to be a lot of fun, and seems very authentic to the source material! I love how they even had Kane Hodder come in to do the motion capturing! Besides Friday the 13th, I'm gearing up for my third playth...

Re: Nintendo NX Update

Nintendo would be stupid to launch the NX in March. They've done such a lousy job of hyping it, and they're giving people no time to decide on whether or not the system is worth their time/investment. I also think it's ridiculous that they didn't use E3 or TGS to show it off. The Directs are okay bu...

Re: Am I the only one who thinks that the Neo/Scorpio is a terrible idea?

To me, it seems suspiciously like what the 32X was supposed to be, before Sega beefed it up. Originally, it was supposed to be a souped up Sega Genesis with a wider color palette. The upper brass thought that was a horrible idea, as you were offering the same exact games and little else. It's alread...

Am I the only one who thinks that the Neo/Scorpio is a terrible idea?

It just seems to me that Sony and MS are pulling a Sega and competing with themselves by flooding the market with unnecessary hardware. Who is the Neo/Scorpio designed for? The people who already bought the XBO/PS4? Those who want the latest tech, most of whom would likely opt for a top-of-the-line ...

Re: Miniature NES with 30 built-in games

It's definitely cool, but after reading up on it, I'll definitely pass. The selection is good, though there are few games on the list that I don't already own on VC (for Wii, Wii U, or 3DS). They have announced that there will be no VC (that doesn't surprise me), nor will there be any slot for futur...

I think that I figured out what the main "innovation" of the NX will be!

And I sincerely hope that I'm wrong. Why would Nintendo jump into the mobile space, which is basically them competing with themselves, unless they were testing the waters for something bigger? The successful launch of Pokemon Go, which I haven't played, made me think about that bigger picture; the r...
