Re: Let's Talk About Final Fantasy XV

I bought the game over the weekend for Xbox One for $30. I would've preferred to play on Playstation since I associate the franchise with it, but I'm not gonna complain getting it half price. Reviews are looking great, with most negative talking points revolving around the half-baked story. I read t...

Re: Let's Talk About Final Fantasy XV

I'm a reformed Final Fantasy fan, loving FF4-9, and being lukewarm on everything since. FF10 was great at the time, but after playing the remastered version and not being able to stomach more than three hours of it I can't say I enjoy it anymore. Both online titles (11 and 14) didn't move the meter ...

Re: Legend of Zelda BOW possibly delayed again?

Would this even be considered a delay technically? I remember them saying it would release in 2017, but not the Switch launch. I read somewhere that a new 3D Mario may be a launch title, and if that ends up being the case, maybe it's best they not blow their load at launch and save some games for la...

Re: Browns vs Tide. Who would win?

49-9 Browns. How many college players make it to the NFL on average each year, even on the best teams? Not too many, and the Browns have 53 players who are good enough to play in the NFL. In the NBA it would maybe be a closer game, since one or two great players can make a huge difference, but gener...

Re: EA's Exclusive deal with the NFL

How is it unlawful? There's no monopoly over making American football games, but EA is the only company that can use the NFL license. And no one is "forced" to buy anything. Is this a consumer problem or an NFL problem?

Re: Nathan Drake and the Bad Review

What evidence is there that any reviewer has ever been paid off? https://youtu.be/PgOnyIt9_ic Remember Driver 3 ? Magazines in the 80's and 90's notoriously gave better reviews in return for advertising revenue and it's unlikely to have improved much. There's one...out of thousands. I think Steve h...

Re: Nathan Drake and the Bad Review

If there's a review problem, it's reviewers getting paid off to write rave reviews - often before a game is even released This isn't the only problem. I think just as big a problem is reviewers (or sites) getting paid off to write poor reviews. Whether it be Uncharted in this case or any number of ...

Re: SNES on 3DS: Not All That

There's homebrew SNES emulators on the old 3DS, and I don't believe they run very well. The New 3DS is a stopgap and SNES games aren't some hot commodity that's gonna convince the general public to upgrade to the new model. The New 3DS's CPU is quite a bit stronger than the old model's.

Re: Your Desert Island Albums?

I'm gonna set parameters for myself and only pick five, otherwise I would just take everything in my library. I'll also not choose greatest hits albums. 1. Paul Simon: Graceland - I'm not a huge fan of Paul Simon's solo career, much preferring his work with Garfunkel, but this album is perfect. Love...

Re: 2016/3/5: Playstation 4: Street Fighter V

This review seems inconsistent with your general gaming philosophy. There are only 16 characters, with more slated to be added as DLC either through real money, or in-game currency; no arcade mode; numerous features of the game aren't even present yet and will be added in later - am I missing someth...
