Amiibos?

Seeing commercials for Amiibos working on tbe WiiU gamepad and the New 3DS. So with the Amiibo we begin to see integration of Nintendo console and portables. It is also a neat way to encourage upgrading your 3DS but not dependent on the small install base of a new portable. On the other hand, does h...

I re-registered to test, but I thought it was just beta and that new registration would be lost or reset soon? Is that incorrect?

I also had to re register. Worst case I can drop the numeric suffix but I like having the user history retained if possible.

Guardians of the Galaxy (NES)

Yeah, just a jest. Our friend's comments on the differences in comics points to a difference in storytelling preferences in the medium, such as anthologies, and kids comics getting more complex storylines in Europe...such as Smurfs being fluff in the US but seems to have more complexity in Europe (f...

Ratings Systems: ESRB vs PEGI

A few years ago the UK went with the European PEGI instead of its own system or the American ESRB. There are differences, such as violence getting higher suggested ages in PEGI, and gambling being a factor in PEGI (gets an automatic 12 and a warning content icon).

Guardians of the Galaxy (NES)

I seemed to do better on this game than I did with Software Creation's Silver Surfer, but then again brawlers are generally easier to begin with.  Using Marvel characters in a Double Dragon clone does add to the fun, although its not quite the same team lineup as from the recent movie. &nb...

Capitalism killing games?

[QUOTE=ptdebate]Basically, shareholders in game companies need to [continually] see big numbers [/QUOTE] Its not capitalism writ large, but an investor tactic called short termism.
