Re: I think that I figured out what the main "innovation" of the NX will be!

I was wondering something similar to this, and my big hangup was wondering what Nintendo could possibly do with that idea that couldn't be mostly imitated with just a phone and an app? i feel like, if they are going to make anything portable, it can't be just a tablet of some kind because that will ...

Re: Why does emulation garner so much hate?

I had a client in Oregon who was 78 and played Halo online for a few hours a day. And he was a very classy old guy, too. He wore golfing clothes alot because he spent alot if time golfing, he drove a classic Cadillac, he had a nice house with the usual old-person mix of antiques and fancy furniture....

Re: Why is Ocarina of Time on the 3DS so expensive????

Nintendo doesn't understand supply and demand. (Secretary at Nintendo hands a memo to the president of Nintendo in the middle of a huge quarterly meeting) "Hang on, gentlemen. Someone calling himself "Tron" says he wants to explain something called "supply and demand" to us...

Re: Why is Ocarina of Time on the 3DS so expensive????

I must be mistaken in my assumptions about Pikmin 3 then. I thought it sold so poorly that they quit production of it early and so prices immediately skyrocketed, which is why I have been anxiously awaiting some sucker to sell it for really cheap on Craigslist. Maybe it did better than I thought...

Re: Games so bad you have to shut it off

These days I'll literally lunge for the power button if a game does anything I detest because I can't waste my gaming time. But as a kid in the pre-NES and NES days, I truly believed that if a game wasn't fun, I either didn't understand how to play it, or it just wasn't my kind of game. I never cons...

Re: 2016/1/16: Xbox One: Rise of the Tomb Raider

I think making this game an Xbox Exclusive (for a year) was a bad move... It would have sold much better if it had released A ps4 copy... Doesn't that go without saying? I always assumed that Microsoft would have to pay a premium to the developer if they wanted a game to be an exclusive, otherwise ...

Re: Rise of the Tomb Raider (Xbox One)

First of all, Sonic9x, that post was too freakin' long both times. Not sure why you needed to post the same thing twice. Second, just knowing that Tomb Raider has enough language to spur a response from people tells me all I need to know to wait and buy this game used and cheap. Recently on this for...

Re: Case For/Against Buying a Wii U?

I have a PS4, PS3, Nvidia Shield, Ouya, and Wii U. The Wii U gets, by far, the most play because of the great games it has and the backwards compatibility with the Wii. This makes its library stellar. My favorite system.

Re: Dads/fathers: when do you find time to play?

I'm 38 with five kids 10 and under. My two boys play a LOT, every waking moment if we allowed them, and occasionally I'll play with them, but often I prefer to use the time to get other stuff done so I can have some free time when they are all in bed. My wife is very easy going not emotionally needy...
