Re: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)

I'm seven hours in, and I'm actually going to admit that this is either the best Zelda since LttP, or the best game in the series! It gets rid of the hand holding that, in my opinion, dragged the series down, ramps up the difficulty, and brought back the sense of wonder from the first game! I was se...

Re: Switch Impressions

I was apprehensive about picking the game up for Wii U because I was nervous that they (Nintendo) would release a janky, bug riddled port. Thankfully, it turned out great! It runs very smoothly, for the most part, and it looks terrific! Had this game been a Switch exclusive, it would have been the b...

Re: Introducing the Nintendo Switch

It still boggles my mind that they didn't have a dozen games ready for launch, considering how much free time they have had with their lack of Wii U development. There is absolutely no excuse for having such a tiny launch lineup. Can anyone tell me how many games the Xbone and PS4 had available at ...

Re: Introducing the Nintendo Switch

Rerez put out a pretty solid review of this thing. Its worth a watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dn72uuvnSUY I just finished watching that review, and he touched upon some very valid points! I thought that the food court test was very interesting, and also very telling. Gaming has become a uni...

Re: Must Have PS4 Games?

Nioh is a really fun game, especially if you like the Souls series (the game has its own flavor, but the influence is there). Until Dawn is a really cool experience that is unlike anything else, especially if you like old slasher flicks (hold off until the Fall). Bloodborne was AWESOME (Dave was wro...

Re: The Switch won't launch with a Virtual Console

I may be in the minority here, but why are people so enamoured with virtual console with the switch? I'm not spending $400 on the newest console so I can play super Mario bros for the millionth time. Here's a much more pertinent question: As people do seem to buy VC games and do want it at launch, ...

Re: The Switch won't launch with a Virtual Console

I get what you're saying, but for some of us (myself included), VC is important because we simply don't have the living space to support so many consoles, games, etc. VC provides a filling of the traditional Nintendo gaps, and it's looking like the first year is going to be especially empty (unless ...

Re: The Switch won't launch with a Virtual Console

Maybe the lack of launch VC is to promote sales of their new (and way more expensive) games? I think it is much more simple. I think they have their heads firmly inside their rectal cavities. I think they are doing this because they are stupid. Stupid and dumb. Stupid, dumb, and out of ideas. They ...

The Switch won't launch with a Virtual Console

As strange as it sounds, this just about seals it for me. I know that I've been very hard on the Switch, for several reasons. I so desperately want this to be the console that the Wii U wasn't, but they seem to be making mistake after mistake with it. The lack of a Virtual Console service is a probl...

Re: Dormant Sega Franchises

A big sore spot for me, when it comes to Sega, is the way that they're jerking people around with the Shenmue remaster. I get that there are some hurdles to jump, in regards to different licenses, but every five months or so, for the past several years, the same news story crops up: "Sega inves...
