The Praise Nintendo Thread

Nintendo is the greatest video game company of all time.  I don't even think this point is really up for debate. Nearly every major game developer agrees with that statement.  From Donkey Kong over 30 years ago all the way up to Mario kart 8 released last month, no developer can come close...

How do you fell about all the re-releases these days?

[QUOTE=Weekend_Warrior]<div class="mceContentBody " id="tinymce" dir="ltr">I absolutely HATE the fact that these companies sell a game, make a ton of money on DLC, then turn around less than a year later and repackage the same game WITH ALL DLC for a nice, new affordable price!  </div><div>&nbs...

The Next 3d Sonic (Sonic Boom) is looking pretty terrible.

A gameplay video of the next sonic game, Sonic Boom, has been posted on youtube.  Take a look.  <br /><br />https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXgXF2t1Psc<br /><br /><br />I don't like judging something by simply a 5 minute video. But this time, I can't help it. This just looks terrible.<br /...

Retron 5 Review

[QUOTE=videogamecritic]<br /><br />I think the biggest flaw is the buggy save game system.  Hopefully that is something they will be able to patch.<br />[/QUOTE]<br /><br />The joy of playing old cartridges is that they just work out of the box.  I think I'll pass on this system if it requ...

Generation is off to a lousy start!

To get this conversation back to its original track, I'd agree with the critic. The Wii U currently has the best library of all three systems, but noone is buying it.  In that sense, the Wii U feels like this generation's Dreamcast. I just hope it has a longer lifespan than the DreamCast does. ...

GameStop no fun?

The only time I go into gamestop is if a cord or something breaks, and I need it right now. In essence, I treat them like RadioShack.  Their prices in general are insane though.  Usually, I can find games new cheaper online than they sell them used.  <br /><br />Here is last year's mo...

Kinect Sports Rivals is a disaster.

I bought this game a few weeks ago and completely hate it. It feels like a game made by a marketing team, not actual game developers. The game starts out with about 2 hours of forced tutorials. You can't pick up and play this game. You have to go through a ton of tutorials before you can access "qui...

Could Nintendo offer a Wii U for $200 without a tablet controller?

<div>Currently the Wii U is $300 retail with a tablet controller included.  However, the Xbox One recently lowered its price by offering a Kinect-Free version.  That got me thinking.  Could Wii U sell a lot more systems by making a cheaper tablet free version? They could include a pro...

MS to offer Xbone without Kinect starting June 9, remove paywall for apps

This is a good strategy for Microsoft. It will make it so the Xbox One is much more competitive with the PS4.  This change in strategy is probably because the PS4 was running circles around the Xbox one in sales, despite having a pretty equal quality game library at this time. Microsoft forced ...

Is split screen or single console multiplayer going away?

I remember the first time I was introduced to a game with no split screen multiplayer.  I rented 50 cent Blood in the Sand years ago for Xbox 360. I know it sounds like a stupid game. However, the reviews made it sound like a great arcade style coop shooter.  I could care less about 50 cen...
