Re: You know you're a retro gamer when

.....You drop $500 like it's pocket change on a crappy system from the '80's, but can't justify getting a Playstation 4 until it comes down in price. Oh dear....that seriously rings a bell. I remember having to explain buying a Jaguar like that one time. Some guy who went out with my wife's friend ...

Re: YOOKA-LAYLEE is a disappointment!

Atarifever, with all due respect, you might want to tone down the condescension just a tad. Guilty, as usual. Looking to see why my tone ended up there (besides me just being something of a tool), I think I way, way over-reacted to the "what's this nonsense" line. Hardly behaviour befitti...

Re: YOOKA-LAYLEE is a disappointment!

I apologize for misunderstanding and misconstruing your narrative; it is more internally consistent than I had thought. What's still missing is the actual financial incentive. First, regardless of what you say, the developers couldn't have failed to see the goldmine on their hands; only the most pa...

Re: YOOKA-LAYLEE is a disappointment!

Do you realize that this evil plan presumes that the user base of the least popular system since the Dreamcast is the linchpin to "release the Kickstarter funds" for a game that reached its funding goal in less than an hour and a million dollars in less than a day? Did all of that money c...

Re: YOOKA-LAYLEE is a disappointment!

Yooka-laylee did this with Wii U. Nintendo fans pitched the product everywhere. Nintendo fan sites posted every update. Places like Gamespot and IGN gave it extra coverage by putting it on Wii U specific pages. A bunch of money towards the goal was gathered by people aiming for that exact stretch g...

Re: YOOKA-LAYLEE is a disappointment!

end up being less than stellar to what they where promised/shady business practices/controversies that make you wish you did not donate money to the kickstarter campaign in the first place! The bigger concern for me,with regards to shady business, is having a platform as a stretch goal (e.g. Wii U)...

Re: Would you buy a disc-free console?

Interesting you should bring up books. eBooks had an air of inevitability about them too. Then the market started to speak long term. Turns out, what I always believed was true: Mot people who bought eBook readers or downloaded the apps weren't (wait for it) readers. It is interesting. I am a reade...
