Switch storage is a total mess

So, I read that the physical release of Starlink will require a 12GB download upon release! It’s crazy, because so many of these titles require downloads that eat up precious space on my memory card (maybe I should have sprung for the 400GB card). My question is this: what’s the point of reverting b...

Re: NES Classic best selling console

I doubt that a mini PS1 would ever happen, for one reason alone: the cost. Unlike Nintendo, Sony doesn’t have a wealth of top-tier first party titles to rely on. The best titles for the system have always been the games released by third parties, who would be entitled to a royalty. So, if you had a...

Re: Mega Man 11 destroys Mighty No. 9 on Metacritic!

Eh. I see it as apples and oranges. One game had the backing of a major studio, not to mention the license and history to draw from. The other game was crowdsourced and it simply wasn’t a very inspired game. Even Mega Man 11, based on the demo, was so-so. I would rank it as being better than 7, 10, ...

Re: Halloween Games Suggestions

Easy suggestion: Hollow Knight. Not only is it a strong contender for my favorite game of the year, but I also think that it’s my favorite Metroidvania since Aria of Sorrow! The game is vast, always interesting, challenging but fair, beautiful, and the music is stellar!

Re: Gaming Days probably coming to almost an end.

I’ve been experiencing something similar to this myself. I’m thirty-seven, and any time I boot up a game and invest time into it, I almost get depressed because....well, life just seems to be moving at such an accelerated pace, and I feel like I should be investing that lost time into something more...

Re: NES Classic best selling console

And I love my Switch also, but the success of the NES Classic isn’t predicated on the pending failure of an entire industry, because sales figures do state otherwise. When people, en mass, get tired of something, that something stops selling. It happened with disco, with MC Hammer, with the entire v...

Re: NES Classic best selling console

I'm glad Nintendo is finally pumping out the NES Classic in reasonable volumes, so people can actually buy them. But I have to admit I was shocked it outsold all the modern consoles in June! https://www.theverge.com/2018/8/2/17642236/nes-classic-npd-sales-data-june-2018 How is this possible, and wh...

Re: A biased articles on why people should get a PS4 and Pro over the Nintendo Switch!

Yep. The difference between Nintendo and Sony is that third party developers will take the occasional big-budget risk on PlayStation. When is the last time that happened on a Nintendo console (Bayonetta doesn’t count)? Probably Mondter Hunter Tri, or Dragon Quest X in Japan,and I remember reading so...

Re: A biased articles on why people should get a PS4 and Pro over the Nintendo Switch!

Man, even though I am a fan of the Switch, I would still recommend PS4. Switch has a few great exclusives, but don’t kid yourself by thinking that it trumps PS4, which has: -Bloodborne -Uncharted 4 -Horizon: Zero Dawn -God of War -GT Sport -Until Dawn -Infamous: Second Son -The Last Guardian -Ni Nu ...
