Re: 2019/5/30: Game Boy: Super Mario Land, Duck Tales

With all due respect, SML has never been an A+ game. When I think of games that are deserving of that score, I think of Mario 3, or Link to the Past, or Resident Evil 4. The games that were so memorable that they stick with you! Even years after playing them, you still have the memories of having pl...

Re: Terminator Dark Fate Trailer

I think that part of what has plagued this series is the very thing that made T2 such a spectacle: the CGI. People seem to forget that the CGI in T2 was used at a minimum (less than three minutes, if I recall), with the rest being practical effects. Maybe I’m in the minority, but practical effects ...

Terminator Dark Fate Trailer

Was anybody as let down by the trailer as I was? With the return of James Cameron and Linda Hamilton, along with the decision to retcon every post-T2 film, I had high hopes....but this looks more like an extension of Terminator Genisys! I think that part of what has plagued this series is the very t...

Re: Favorite console gen graphic leaps.

Sonic, I know that I often challenge you on your posts, but this one was genuinely great! Mad props on a well-researched, interesting post!

Re: Move over, ATGames. M2 is here to save the day!

I think the reason why we're not seeing equal support on Switch is because Nintendo's success is far more complicated, when it comes to third parties. If PS4/XBONE are successful, a lot of that is predicated upon third party support. Games like Madden, FIFA, and the like will always sell best on PS/...

Re: Move over, ATGames. M2 is here to save the day!

When it comes to any business, there really is no such thing as “backstabbing.” Why would EA continue to support the Wii U? Simply put, third party games sold poorly, so why invest the time and resources? The same goes for the Saturn/Dreamcast. How well would a game like Madden have sold on a consol...

Re: Another 3rd paty dev jumps on the Switch bandwagon.

He was merely the chairman, so I doubt he had much of an influence. I know that he said what he said about Night Trap, but it's not like he made those decisions. It would have fallen on Arakawa in the West, and Yamauchi in the East.

Re: Another 3rd paty dev jumps on the Switch bandwagon.

I've always thought that the 3rd party discussion, relating to Nintendo, neglects the Gamecube era. That particular era was more akin to the SNES era, when it comes to third-party support: -Capcom: Resident Evil Remake, O, 4, ports of 2, 3, and Code Veronica. Also, we got Viewtiful Joe (amazing game...

Re: Book Review: SNES Omnibus Vol 2 N-Z

Good review. Now that you have the book, check out Konami's take on Prince of Persia! It's one of my all-time favorite SNES games, and also my favorite port of the game! I'm amazed that it has flown so far under the radar of so many gamers!

Re: Nintendo exposes Sony with this game.

Wait—are you looking for genuine discussion, or are you fishing for replies? Admittedly, there were a lot but if you read through most of them, they weren’t necessarily part of a growing conversation. Most of the comments were of a questioning nature, wondering why you let this petty, inconsequentia...
