The Mario Kart 8 Friends List Thread!

I usually get home around 8:30 pm PST, so that's 11:30 pm for VGC.  Hopefully I can get on and dominate, tilt-controls style.

2014/6/17: Nintendo 3DS: Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, Centipede Infestation, Star Fox 64 3D

[QUOTE=David]I'm not a Star Fox fan, though I did finish Star Fox 64, but it's weird seeing the 3DS version get a C while the N64 version got an A. Did you play the N64 one at all before reviewing this one?[/QUOTE]<br /><br />I usually don't believe in stupid questions, but that was a stupid questio...

Why does emulation garner so much hate?

Two words: save states<br /><br />Not that I have any problem with them, but from a purist standpoint, especially from hardcore speedrunners/no-hitters who like to broadcast their achievements on YouTube or similar, save states taint the achievement of such things or even completing the game at all....

Jaguar vs. SNES (2d capabilities)

[QUOTE=TheLastNightmare]The Jaguar had more colors, and larger sprites, plus sprite scaling...at a higher resolution. Even with the Super FX 2 chip, the SNES couldn't compete with the colors and higher resolution.<br /><br />But the Jaguar competing with a Dreamcast? Not even close. It had a cr...

Wii Classic Controller (Farce)

Nintendo's market cap and cash reserves are so ridiculously high that they could make the next Jaguar and then the next 3DO and still survive to make another console or portable.  <br /><br />Nintendo is in much better financial shape than Sony is; the PS4 is the one thing that's keeping t...

Goodbye for now

I ran into an old classmate at my high school reunion a few years back, and like you, his life revolved around internet surfing, videogames, and waking up at 1 pm everyday.  He ended up enlisting in the Army, and at the time of the reunion he was working for the FBI.<br /><br />While I think jo...

Jaguar vs. SNES (2d capabilities)

Donkey Kong Country.  Good night, Jaguar.<br /><br />Obviously, the Jaguar would've had no problem run DKC after some very diligent tweaking of tools, but with Donkey Kong Country, Rare and Nintendo revolutionized game development in the second half of the 90s and early 2000s by chang...

All the way through?

From my most recent memories, I've beaten Mass Effect with four different characters, Mass Effect 2 and 3 with two different characters (carried over from the MS1), I have a platinum trophy in Jak and Daxter (HD remake), I've beaten A Link Between Worlds in normal and hero modes and found every...

Mario Kart 8 (Wii U)

Here are few more things I'm picking up after playing the game a ton.<br /><br /> I've heard from some that "fire-hopping" technique is the new "snaking", but so far, I'm only seeing it affecting time trials significantly.  The opportunities to use the technique are so few that I don't see...

First Madden 15 Screenshot

Gamers say they hate EA, but all is forgiven when they see current-gen screenshots like those from FIFA, NHL, and Madden.  Is NBA Live beyond redemption, though?
