Re: Should nintendo drop the gimmicks?

What has really hurt Nintendo more than what I've mentioned is how they have refused to let the Fans "Suggest" Video game ideas, I'm not denying that the fanbase of Nintendo can be annoying but many I've talked to have many unique ideas that Nintendo could've turned into games. What compa...

Re: Japanese main console equilvents from 3rd to 8th gen

Oh, I think I get it now. It's going off some idea that each generation has consoles embodying the same archetypes. Except these archetypes basically amount to "this one sold a lot" and "this one wasn't as popular", plus some speculation about whether they were for "dudebros...

Re: Metroid Prime?

All right, I played through the opening spaceship level and the desert temple level and... how many crucifications can I look forward to if I say I'm not impressed? I've said before, story is a huge thing, but Metroid Prime has me has so little. You blow up a spaceship, and then run around on a pla...

Re: Polybius

So this awesome video came out today for the new NIN song of a woman playing Polybius (or at least what the director conceptualized Polybius to look like) and I searched for an appropriate thread to put it (slightly NSFW for one instance of the f-bomb): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDV-dOvqKzQ I...

Definitely looks like a malicious ad.

Re: Metroid Prime?

Haha, saying it's Super Metroid in 3D doesn't mean much to me since I never played Super Metroid (hopefully that'll change if I get hold of a SNES Classic!). Anyway, I just went ahead and downloaded the Prime trilogy on Wii U, so I'll get to try it out first thing tomorrow! Super Metroid is on the ...

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

Of course it can, regardless of architecture. My x64 laptop can. As for whether or not the Virtual Console will ever have 3DO games, I don't think it's very likely; the 3DO was such an unpopular system with such a paltry library that it wouldn't be commercially worth the trouble.

Re: Metroid Prime?

It's Super Metroid in 3D. Apart from the strange (but completely functional) controls, it's perfect, an absolute masterpiece of both design and sheer atmosphere. One cool thing about it is that everything you see can be scanned for more information - not that you'll ever take the game up on that (if...

Re: New Music Thread

I've mentioned the reunited Swans before in another thread, but there's no reason to not bring them up again. I'm trying to avoid older acts in these recommendations, but this is pretty much a brilliant new band that happens to have the same name and leader as a brilliant old band. Recommended album...
