Re: Japan and the Xbox One

I don't think Americans are as nationalistic as Japanese and many other countries. To compare the two in contrast isn't realistic since the cultures are very different. Japan embraces American products as long as the products are distinctly American. When they have options such as electronics &...

Re: Japan and the Xbox One

I don't know if I would go so far as to say all of Japan's video games system are inherently "better" then western ones. I wouldn't say that either, but I guess I have implied it through flippant, uncharacteristically hyperbolic language. :) (Sorry guys; six month performance review tomor...

Re: Japan and the Xbox One

Recently, the country was a late adopter of US trailblazing smartphones. Why? . Because the U.S. was so drastically behind in Smartphone adoption compared to the rest of the World that it took pretty much everyone else in the world turning away from their long established brands for Apple and Googl...

Re: Japan and the Xbox One

So perhaps it's not a case of not buying American it's a case of only buying Japanese. . But I still don't see how that explains why American consoles don't win in America either. If these American consoles were so great, why can't they even win in their home market? And why is it a surprise that J...

Re: Japan and the Xbox One

Sorry, this is a pet peeve of mine. It is NOT nationalism. If it was, the Japanese would not love Coke, baseball, Apple, Hollywood celebrities, McDonald's, and even Windows from the same company. It is, if I may say so without judging you in particular (as this is a common argument in the game's med...

Re: The Final Fantasy VII Remake Thread

Today is last day of the Steam summer sale, but FFVII is $6. I've been considering this game. For someone with no nostalgia for that game, zero nostalgia for the Playstation brand or the PS1 specifically (I actively dislike the system), and little love for that entire generation, is there any good ...

Re: E3 time!

Timed DLC exclusivity doesn't elicit emotions either way for me. If I did care it'd be more directed at retailer exclusive DLC. People shouldn't have to buy games from Gamestop, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart just to have access to to whatever stupid bonuses each one is getting. I don't see how one ...

I doubt that would ever happen. Expect a platform from them for PC and mobile before they build for someone else's console ecosystem. That lets them maintain control, get bigger profits, and reach more family type gamers.

Re: Sea of Thieves Pirate game

Yeah, I'm not quite sure how this game lives up to Rare's past legacy of great games. But at least Microsoft is letting Rare try something new. And who doesn't love pirates? I always start out loving Rare games, and end up always hitting a part I hate that I have no patience to deal with and then q...

Re: E3 time!

Refocus from the TV to the game pad while doing a barrel roll. Shudder. Agreed. However, they did mention a feature they're working to include that I really like the sound of: 2 player mode. One player will fly the Arwing using a wiimote or pro controller and the other will play a first person gunn...
