Re: Nintendo Switch: Boom or Bust?

Having said all that, perhaps they are saving a lot of reveals for E3 and really blow everyone away. Perhaps. That would be a pretty bad idea since E3 is 3 months after the release of the console. They certainly will give a few more details before release date but to anyone holding out hope that th...

Re: Nintendo Switch: Boom or Bust?

$300 might be a bit at the high end, but I don't think it surprised too many people nor is it too far off the mark since there wasn't a prayer for $200. The best case I felt that we could hope for was $250 and we're only $50 away from that. Do something surprising like bundle in '1,2, Switch' if Ni...

Re: Nintendo Switch: Boom or Bust?

I'm pretty worried for Nintendo honestly. I think they are pricing themselves out of the market. The Wii U launched for $300 for the core version, and it's price point was part of the reason it couldn't pick up steam in the early days. People felt that an underpowered console shouldn't be nearly the...

Re: Pac-Man unlicensed for the NES?

Yeah the black cartridge version, like all the black cartridge Tengen games, is unlicensed. The gray cart version is licensed. I might be wrong because I don't own both, but I think the game is identical outside of the packaging.

Re: Best/Worst Sonic Levels

Sonic 3 Least favorite: Marble Garden Zone - I just can't wait for this level to be over when i play it. You summarized the problems with it well. Actually, I was referring to Marble Zone from the first Sonic game. I actually love Marble Garden despite how mixed its reception is. Oops. I forgot tha...

Re: Super Mario Odyssey.

Really the only thing I have faith in Nintendo to do right anymore is making solid first party games. I'm sure this Mario game will be incredible. I actually enjoyed Mario 3D World quite a bit but I'm not upset to see them go back to a less casual approach to 3d Mario.

Re: What's your soundsystem like for gaming?

I've been using just the standard tv speakers for my gaming. I have a 5 year old Sony Bravia and while the sound isn't perfect, it gets the job done. If I upgraded I would probably go for a sound bar, because we don't have great places to put surround speakers and I'm certainly not able to afford wi...

Re: Best/Worst Sonic Levels

We have pretty similar tastes, except I'm not huge on Oil Ocean. It has one part where I always end up going backwards and getting confused, and I'm not big on the overall atmosphere. It's not in my bottom list, but certainly not my favorite. Metropolis might be the worst level. Way too long and tho...
