Re: Last Call: Wii Shop closing - What should we download?

Here's a Virtual Console list I made a while back to show what VC titles were exclusive. http://www.nintendolife.com/forums/wii_u_virtual_console/wii_u_virtual_console_games_missing_between_regions?start=580#reply-581 Thanks for sharing this. I found it really useful for trying to decide from VC ga...

Re: Axiom Verge (Switch)

Figures that after I order a Pro Controller I finish the game before it arrives! Looking forward to this review. While I already bought the game, I haven't had a chance to play it yet. It'll probably be awhile before I do, unless your review inspires me to bump it ahead of my current backlog. Even ...

Re: This months's free PS+ games

Thanks for the heads up on Trackmania. I downloaded it and played a few rounds. Seems decent enough so far. I haven't tried online yet, because you have to create a Ubisoft account, which is very annoying...

Re: Let's play Fortnite?

We should figure out a night to try it out. Wednesday or Thursday night of this week would work for me. My work hours are weird. I work from 3pm to midnight, and the mornings, usually 9am-2pm, is my free time. I have Sundays and Mondays off, though, so I can definitely get on those nights! A Sunday...

Re: Let's play Fortnite?

It's a miracle, DaHeck! After multiple topics, and hours of us ranting and raving about this free game, we finally convinced one other person to download it. (Side note: I forget if I mentioned over and over in all my other posts that Fortnite Battle Royale is FREE and a must-play game??.. but just ...

Re: Confess Your Unpopular Video Game Opinions

More unpopular here than other forums, but 2017 was one of the absolute best years for gaming ever. 2017 was unreal. Absolutely true. Great year for Nintendo in particular, but there were tons of classics for other platforms as well. I haven't thought about it enough to say whether 2017 is the best...

Re: Working out while playing games?

It's a great thought in theory, but the reality is that both are active activities, so you sacrifice the quality of both when you pair them together. If your goal is to have a good workout, you can't pair it with reading, playing games, or other active activities. Pair it with some passive activity ...

Re: Should box sets be reviewed together or separately?

My thought is that a game should be reviewed as it stands -- meaning, if it's a compilation then it should be reviewed as a compilation, rather than reviewed on its individual parts. This is how every other review site does it as well. I agree, however, that Portal is a great game that could have go...

Re: MICROVISION (1979) - World’s First Handheld System - Review of System and All 12 Games

The overlays could differ, mine had the rounded holes for Connect Four. I recall playing the square hole version once and finding it more difficult to tell which piece was which than with the rounded. I have the same version of Connect Four that you show there, with the round holes. I wonder if the...
