Re: Gaming Days probably coming to almost an end.

Interesting perspectives in this thread. I'm 43, married with 2 kids. I still game, but only a few hours per week. I know some people mentioned that they feel they are wasting their time, but I don't see it any different than watching tv. Sometime you just want to veg out on the couch watching tv or...

You can tell the people running GameStop are not gamers.


They are gamers, they''re just not collectors

Re: GameStop selling comics...

This is probably smart. Even if video games are more mainstream and popular, I often notice that mom & pop stores for comic books, cards, and collectibles (without video games) seem to survive longer than similar stores that just focus on video games. So there's probably something to that, and ...

Re: GameStop selling comics...

I don't understand why their game inventory is so small? I mean, the 3DS has hundreds of physical games available, yet I usually only see around 50 in any given store (I'm in Canada, so it's EB games here). Same with Switch, maybe 15 or 20 are in any given store, yet there's easily more than 100 ava...

Re: I love Switch, but....

I just got the Switch this week and I absolutely love it! The screen looks amazing! I got Super Mario Odyssey and it's a ton of fun so far. I've been playing on the tv, but last night my wife, me and my 2 kids were hundled around the portable screen on our bed before bedtime taking turns playing Mar...

the dock holding the Switch is really flimsy!

I finally got myself a Switch last night, and I love it! However, one thing I noticed that I'm surprised hasn't been brought up too much in reviews is how flimsy the tablet is when sitting in the dock. It doesn't click in and is not being held in any way by the dock. Any tiny little bump will knock ...

Re: I love Switch, but....

Nintendo has created this weirdly-complicated legacy for themselves. Don't get me wrong, Doom and Skyrim were day one purchases for me, but----I could have picked them up for PS4, where they looked better, ran better, and were cheaper. The portability aspect was a huge selling point for me, but mos...

New Icon Idea - can the game be beat in one sitting?

So, I usually have 1 main game that I play at a time, and this is a game that cannot be beat in one sitting. Anything with a password, or is saved to a memory card/hard drive. However, if I need a break from that one game, I'll play a game that doesn't require a continue, like any of the super mario...

Re: High Score Book

This is great! I used to do this as a kid, but I think I'll start up a book again. This will motivate me to play more 2600 games.

Re: 2018/5/14: Playstation 3: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Alright... so I finally reset my password to post again to post in this. Those of you taking a guy with a family who runs a review site as seriously as you are really need to chill the **** out. Seriously, as you get older you spend less time on games and those fun side projects and more time on wi...
