Have Any of you Ever Came Up with an idea for a video game?

I know that some of you are actually game designers, but this question is mainly directed at the average gamer who has no experience with development. Every now and then, I'll think of an idea that seriously makes me wish that I had the tools, the knowledge, and the education necessary to bring an i...

Re: R.I.P. NES Classic (Thanks, Nintendo!)

I have a feeling that I'm getting really tired of how difficult they are, as a company! It's like they go out of their way to p*** people off! I can almost understand artificial supply to create an artificial demand, but to create this shortage to drive up demand but yet never intend to satisfy said...

R.I.P. NES Classic (Thanks, Nintendo!)

Welp, after five months of not being able to buy one without being raked over the coals by scalpers, Nintendo decided to pull the plug! How many of you even saw one of these in stores, because I never have! I'm actually a bit irked by this! At least, in the past, when there were shortages of Nintend...

Re: RIP 3DS/PS Vita 2011-2017

I've honestly considered the 3DS to be dead since they chose to discontinue the VC in favor of supporting the service on their sinking ship (Wii U). What really stinks is that they've killed the service TWICE, first when they pulled the plug on releasing any further NES games (seriously? I understan...

Re: YOOKA-LAYLEE is a disappointment!

All of the nontroversy surrounding the metacritic scores of Yooka-Laylee illustrates everything that is wrong with the gaming community's over-reliance on review scores. Did you read the reviews? I did and, for the most part, the biggest knocks against it are that it is everything that they said it ...

Re: New Sega Genesis beat 'em up: Paprium

An 80 MEG cart?! My God! For a 16-bit cart, that's absolutely huge! If I remember correctly, the biggest Genny cart was Super Street Fighter II, which clocked in at 40!

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U, with spoilers)

I've been holding off on reviewing BotW until I could digest as much of it as possible, dissecting the game's strengths, and debating it's flaws. After pumping twenty-five hours into it, I'm now able to offer my semi-definitive verdict: First off, this game is HUGE! I'm still finding new areas, and ...

Re: The Disney Afternoon Collection announced for Everything but the Nintendo Switch!

Sorry for the double post, but I feel like it needs to be addressed. No system has thrived, on a global scale, without meaningful contributions from third parties. Nintendo makes some of the best games in the industry, yes, but they can't succeed by themselves. Even the Wii, through the mountains of...

Re: The Disney Afternoon Collection announced for Everything but the Nintendo Switch!

I just looked up the sales of DuckTales Remastered and it sold better on Wii U than on any other platform, so i don't think your theory holds up Banjo No offense, but how, exactly, did you obtain the figures? VGChartz? Their numbers have been proven, time and again, to not be the most accurate. Als...
