Re: Gaming Days probably coming to almost an end.

What's staved this off for me is a combination of two things: having specific, defined goals when I play -- for example, beating all the games in a series, or in a certain genre -- and actually logging all my gameplay time. The former puts limits on my play and creates a sense of purpose; the latte...

Re: Gaming Days probably coming to almost an end.

I feel ya. I’m 38 and I’m in the same boat. The harsh reality is that for me, solo gaming just can’t hold a candle to the joy of playing with family or friends. There’s a couple of games I’d still like to explore (Earthbound and Okami), but that’s about all I’m interested in. However, I’m always dow...

Re: Nintendo has done it Again, For the greater good.

I’m only a casual fan, but I admire the series. Wow, Ultimate is the right word. They’ve packed EVERYTHING into the games—fighters, stages, stage morphs, custom everything, new modes (I like that “smash down” one), Music. Part of me wonders if this will be the last one made. I haven’t been too tempt...

Re: Super Mario Odyssey vs. Breath Of The Wild

One could argue that the SNES has the best 2D versions of these games, and Switch has the best 3D versions.

Re: Playing consoles outside ?

I imagine those older consoles would tolerate the elements better than a new gen console.

Re: Great article...

Very cool. And I agree. When I see an “epic” games that takes tons of time to complete or tons of time to get skilled at (for online play), I have no interest in it. I grew up in an era when you could beat games in one sitting, and playing in 20-45 minute bursts is this most natural for me. Some of ...

Re: Thai Soccer Team

Yes, I’ve been following. The situation seems so scary, but I’m glad to see people coming together to think of some ideas the minimize the dangers. I’m a good swimming, but just the thought of having to dive in those conditions is terrifying. I feel like sedating them, and transporting them back in ...

Re: AVGN: Ready 4 Revenge (Blu Ray)

Big AVGN fan here. What’s interesting is that if you watch any of his behind the scenes stuff or older bio-documentaries, you realize that he’s super laid back and just loves making movies. He likes movies more than video games, but AVGN became his avenue for being able to make videos for a living. ...

Re: NES Classic Impressions

After my Best Buy waiting line experience, I vowed to never do that again. I ended getting one from GameStop online months later. But, aside from SMB2&3, and Ninja Gaiden, I never played it. Truth is, the SNES is the system I did most of my gaming on. I plan to borrow a SNES Classic soon, and th...

Re: Mario Tennis Aces

Is there a “no gimmicks” mode for online play? *by the way, I’m also a gamer dad who plays in 20-30 minute bursts. Most platformers are good for this, as well as racers (like Mario Kart). Our primary console is a Wii, but I got a lot of use out of my 2DS for this reason alone—easier to play while ki...
