Nintendo's quality output as a third-party developer

So if it wasn't for best selling games, 3DS software sales would be terrible? Huh. Good thing for the best selling games then?

Leo, you were so worried about Nintendo's losses and now they gained back 3x as much as they lost last year. I thought you would have been pleased by this news.

Nintendo's quality output as a third-party developer

http://fortune.com/2014/11/21/nintendo-holiday-sales/<br /><br /><em>“There hasn’t been much good news to report regarding Nintendo’s financial situation since the company’s historic annual loss way back in the 2011 to 2012 period,” Pachter said. “That may be changing.

What did you think of Black Friday for games?

I thought it was pretty blah again.<br /><br />Really only the games that you would expect received a kind of 'good' discount, and that is nothing special. I suppose hardware bundles were ok, but that was more of buy an expenisve bundle and get a couple of games, rather than any deep price cuts. I d...

Blood, Gore, Vulgarity in the Current Gen

[QUOTE=ptdebate]SegaT, Once again, you're allowing your myopia to blind you from the variety that exists right under your nose. I'm getting pretty tired of listing things only to have you ignore them because they poke holes in your cherished assumptions, but The Unfinished Swan, Dreamfall Chapters, ...

Blood, Gore, Vulgarity in the Current Gen

* "So, many games fit into the same mold, have the same look, have the same feel, feature essentially the same controls, and often the same general concept." - Your weakest paragraph, because when I read it I thought of Mario platformers. Please correct me in a different thread.<br /><br />But the i...

Blood, Gore, Vulgarity in the Current Gen

Well, Vexer, I do think it is a form of laziness, and also complacency, to rarely stretch yourself out of your comfort zone, as a person, or as an industry.<br /><br />The goal of the game often shapes the narrative, which leads to the sameness. And the goal of the game is overwhelmingly killing thi...

Does the VGC aparent(?) media black out make him a better reviewer?

It is fairly common to see the VGC make a comment about a game in the Now Playing section, or when posting  a review, in which his opinion and take on a game is 180 degrees from what you are seeing from most every other site. Furthermore, it often seems that when you read a  review or prev...

Blood, Gore, Vulgarity in the Current Gen

It is the worst thing about the game industry and really just about any medium present day.<br /><br />Trying to use 'shock' to cover complacency, sameness,  and flaws in games. It is laziness.  Nothing annoys me more than being cursed at constantly by a game, book or movie.<br /><br />And...
