Re: Critically Acclaimed/Popular Video Games you have little to no interest to own/play and why?

So you hate shooters, MOBAs, MMOs, sports sims, racing sims, open world games, PC sims, and stealth games, and you mention that there are more? You must have a hell of a time finding anything to play.

Re: Rise of the Tomb Raider (Xbox One)

I've played a a handful of hours and haven't noticed the language at all. The deaths are violent, so I could see the argument there, but comparative to other games that are widely praised here (such as GTA, or Until Dawn) and elsewhere it doesn't move the meter at all. The one thing that is souring ...

Re: Dads/fathers: when do you find time to play?

Is is bad that I worry about this as a married 30 year old with no kids? My wife wants kids (2) and I don't care if we have any at all, so we've compromised at one. The thing is, we're both getting settled in our careers and are planning to get a house, so we've put the kid thing on hold. However, s...

Re: 2015/12/12: Xbox One: Halo 5: Guardians

I think if there were more evidence that people played local co-op, they probably would've included it. It's also why I believe that some recent FPS's have removed the single-player campaigns. That's not a popular sentiment here, but if THAT many people cared they wouldn't risk alienating them by el...

Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake News

David, Square Enix has made missteps lately to be sure, but they did back then too (see FFII NES). They've always been dividing their fan base by aggressively evolving the series. Sometimes it works out and produces something brilliant (FFX, Vagrant Story), and sometimes it causes derision (Dirge o...

Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake News

Ptdebate - What about Square-Enix's history in the last ten years leads you to believe that making FF7 supposedly even larger is a good thing? I know you liked FF13, but a lot of people did not, and I think most fans agree that it wasn't the same as the classic games in the series. Then they had Fin...

Re: What video game system's success shocked you?

That is a great option... I own both of those and they GB Player is awesome. Why Nintendo didn't make a DS Player for the Wii U is baffling. The Wii U is the perfect console for it and realistically the only one that could pull that off (for most games anyway). It's probably because they planned on...

Survey (US) - Women own more game consoles than men

Re: Yoshi's Wooly World (Wii U)

I've played through the first world only, but so far it's awesome. The one negative I have would be if you're not planning on getting all the collectibles, the levels might be too short and easy. That may change though in late stages.
