Re: Should nintendo drop the gimmicks?

Hi everyone, I think we are all skirting around the real issue here. Nintendo is putting out consoles that are lower specs than their competitors. I remember back in the 16-bit days when graphical horsepower was the rallying cry for Nintendo fans. They were right. The SNES was, in most categories, ...

Re: Should nintendo drop the gimmicks?

If the Switch was $100 cheaper, I might consider it. Too expensive for what you get IMO. Hell, I got a solid "off-brand" tablet from Amazon with similar specs that is comparable in size, and it was less than $100. I just see it as a WiiU 2.0, much like the Wii was a GameCube 2.0. So far, I...

Re: Sega making some moves. Subscription service?

I downloaded 4 of the 5. Dont care about phantasy star. I figured the controls would suck, never been a fan of the touch screen stuff, but its not too terrible I guess. I played altered beast and kid chameleon with no issues. Comic Zone was pretty rough though. Super laggy which resulted in cheap hi...

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

I waited in line for Episode 1 for 13 hours, and was disappointed. Never again will I wait in line for anything. No reason anyone should have to stand in line over night for one of these things. So stupid on Nintendos part if you ask me.

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

3DO was a cool system, I had one and just sold it with all the games. I never played it. 99% of the games you can get for the PC, and they are much better quality. So its really not worth it I guess. The Road Rash port is supposed to be the system's killer app. Honestly, it was no better than the P...

Honestly, I think im going to keep them on my CRT. They look really nice on my flat screen, but look amazing on my CRT.

Re: Metroid Prime?

I need to pick up the trilogy collection for this franchise. I have only played the first one on the GC, and I really enjoyed it. It did feel a bit repetitive at times, but the tight gameplay and immersive atmosphere is what makes it so much fun.
