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

When I read this, I was irritated by the news....but then I thought about it, and it makes sense, in a way. When you go on Nintendo forums, and the topic of third-party releases pops up, there are countless "I buy Nintendo consoles for 1st party games only" comments. I think that developer...

Re: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)

The more I play the less I like exploring a huge world to find brittle weapons that break in one fight against trash mobs and then repeating. I thought it was one of the best design changes to the Zelda formula. It forces players to explore even more for rusty weapons or at least seek out enemies w...

Re: What I would have done with the Switch if I were Nintendo

I have been a skeptic of the Switch since the presentation. When I saw the reveal, I was optimistic, but couldnt help but feel the big N was pushing more gimmicks. Upon its release, the reviews are mixed. I am still skeptical and dont feel it will have the longevity needed to be a successful consol...

Re: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)

I'm seven hours in, and I'm actually going to admit that this is either the best Zelda since LttP, or the best game in the series! It gets rid of the hand holding that, in my opinion, dragged the series down, ramps up the difficulty, and brought back the sense of wonder from the first game! I was se...

Re: Switch Impressions

I was apprehensive about picking the game up for Wii U because I was nervous that they (Nintendo) would release a janky, bug riddled port. Thankfully, it turned out great! It runs very smoothly, for the most part, and it looks terrific! Had this game been a Switch exclusive, it would have been the b...

Re: Introducing the Nintendo Switch

It still boggles my mind that they didn't have a dozen games ready for launch, considering how much free time they have had with their lack of Wii U development. There is absolutely no excuse for having such a tiny launch lineup. Can anyone tell me how many games the Xbone and PS4 had available at ...

Re: Introducing the Nintendo Switch

Rerez put out a pretty solid review of this thing. Its worth a watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dn72uuvnSUY I just finished watching that review, and he touched upon some very valid points! I thought that the food court test was very interesting, and also very telling. Gaming has become a uni...

Re: Must Have PS4 Games?

Nioh is a really fun game, especially if you like the Souls series (the game has its own flavor, but the influence is there). Until Dawn is a really cool experience that is unlike anything else, especially if you like old slasher flicks (hold off until the Fall). Bloodborne was AWESOME (Dave was wro...

Re: The Switch won't launch with a Virtual Console

I may be in the minority here, but why are people so enamoured with virtual console with the switch? I'm not spending $400 on the newest console so I can play super Mario bros for the millionth time. Here's a much more pertinent question: As people do seem to buy VC games and do want it at launch, ...

Re: The Switch won't launch with a Virtual Console

I get what you're saying, but for some of us (myself included), VC is important because we simply don't have the living space to support so many consoles, games, etc. VC provides a filling of the traditional Nintendo gaps, and it's looking like the first year is going to be especially empty (unless ...
