Re: Time for The Critic to do a set of reviews based on post-apocalyptic scenarios...

Just picked up Metro Redux on the Switch for 40 bucks at Walmart.

I like the idea of a roll of toilet paper to signify the genre...

Re: My beloved Nintendo just gave me my first EA experience in gaming...

I forgot to mention that review bombing is specifically leaving a 0/10, perfectly negative review, in order to ruin the curve... No, it's a coordinated campaign of negative reviews by people who have not necessarily played a game (or seen a movie, etc.) but have some grievance against it. The "...

I'm excited to watch the new lighting engines - this may be the generation where we finally achieve the dream of real time cinematic results. Real time raycasting? That seemed impossible only a decade ago. Especially since, if we're realistic, simulating light bounces uses a lot of resources; how m...

Re: My beloved Nintendo just gave me my first EA experience in gaming...

Yep, do it. Submit a terrible review. Best case they come out with a patch for it. Does any of the content get saved to the memory card, ie you could buy X copies of it and share the single Switch or is it really and truly a 1:1 pairing between Switch and game? (I'm not suggesting it's feasible or ...

Re: My beloved Nintendo just gave me my first EA experience in gaming...

Hmmmm.... MetaCritic is only a click away... do I dare submit to my own hypocrisy? There's nothing hypocritical about leaving a negative review of a game that you have bought and played. That's not review bombing; it's just a review. I forgot to mention that review bombing is specifically leaving a...

My beloved Nintendo just gave me my first EA experience in gaming...

I bought Animal Crossing yesterday after getting my five kids (ages 6 through 14) all worked up about its coming release, telling them how much they were going to enjoy it. Last night, just before bedtime, they all sat with me on the couch and watched me go through all the opening decisions and expe...

Re: Favorite Resident Evil Games?

RE4 is in my all-time top 10, and it and RE5 are the only two I have ever played, so I'm the wrong guy to ask. :)

The timing of the Switch was perfect, and it took me out of the console market...

With all the news about the upcoming console generation that Google has been digitally bitch-slapping me with lately, combined with my love of the Switch and its library, I can't fathom how long it will be before I am anxious to buy a next-gen console. Think about the timing of the release of the Sw...

I will DEFINITELY be picking up that Switch version of Metro. Exactly what I've been looking for, a story-driven FPS on the Switch that ISN'T just a download code!

Re: Time for The Critic to do a set of reviews based on post-apocalyptic scenarios...

Glad I asked! A couple interesting looking possibilities for me there. Never even heard of the Metro series. Where should I start if I would prefer not to buy an old PS3 or similar older console? I'm always looking for a game to grab me by the seedless grapes and drag me I to a new world. So many ga...
