Re: A question for those of you who successfully camped out for an NES Classic

I'm going to have fun with it. I'm going to take my 3DS, some coffee, water, a sandwich, etc. I think that I'll have a chance if I show up the night before.

I'm glad to see these places offering one per customer! The idea of one person showing up and buying the entire lot is infuriatingly obnoxious!

Re: Can the Nintendo Switch emulate the 3DO Interactive Multiplayer hardware?

It could, but it would be pointless: EA, the strongest supporter of the 3DO, has never supported the Virtual Console, so you would never see Road Rash, Need For Speed, FIFA, Madden, etc. Samurai Shodown is already available, Way of the Warrior (junk game) is a Naughty Dog-owned property, Gex and The...

A question for those of you who successfully camped out for an NES Classic

Okay, so I decided to use PTO and camp out at Best Buy the night of September 28th. I thought, like so many others, that the shortages for the NES Classic would be short lived, and I am not making that mistake again! I will camp out, only because (unlike with the NES), I would likely be willing to p...

Re: SNES Classic Announced

I didn't get roped in by the NES Classic, mainly because I refuse to play the scalpers' little game! Also, I owned the majority of the NES games on VC, so it was pretty low priority. This is different. Final Fantasy III (VI) is my all time favorite snes game and, to be honest, every poet that I've p...

Re: SNES Classic Announced

This should make the scalpers happy!

Seriously, though, that list is absolute dynamite! I fully intend to use some PTO to wait outside of Best Buy! This, unlike the NES Classic, is worth waiting in line for! They had me at Final Fantasy III, Starfox 2, and Secret of Mana!

Re: Sega making some moves. Subscription service?

I knew they'd screw this up, the moment that the rumors started circulating! I mean, how hard would it have been to put together a somewhat comprehensive service acknowledging your ENTIRE history? How have games like Virtua Fighter been ignored for so long? How many times can they port Virtua Fighte...

Re: Skyrim on the Switch

Yeah, this release is just not exciting. Don't get me wrong, if you've never played it before and this is your way in, that's cool, but it's a six year old game. You know what would've been exciting from Bethesda? If the new Wolfenstein or The Evil Within 2 was coming out this fall for the Switch. ...

Re: Skyrim on the Switch

Sarcasm noted. I'm sorry if I was less than impressed with Nintendo's bare-bones presentation (and pretty much all of E3). I guess that it takes more than a "hey guys, Metroid Prime 4 IS being worked on" to get me excited. Return of Samus looked off, and I can't figure out why Nintendo dec...

Re: Skyrim on the Switch

Eh. I'm sorry, but this is another half-hearted safe release by a company that will give Nintendo yesterday's table scraps for the price of a full course meal. What rubbed me the wrong way, and it is a depressing reminder of how Nintendo is seen by the third-party community, was how Skyrim was also ...

Re: Keep Politics out of video games

It depends on the game. Just as I don't want to be preached to when I see a popcorn muncher, I don't want to see political statements in AAA gaming. If developers want to do smaller scale indie titles that delve into politics, then I'm all for that. Game companies need to know the how, why, and when...
