Re: The SNES mini is Nintendo's last chance for me

Very interesting if it's truly the main reason. That would mean Nintendo would actually be frustrated by this instead of feeling clever. I was thinking yesterday about the difference between the Wii, the Wii U, and the Switch, and how they started off, especially after reading that old thread someo...

Re: The SNES mini is Nintendo's last chance for me

I just picked up a Switch a couple days ago. I had already accepted the fact that I would have to wait a few months to get one, but while in the game section of my local Fry's in Las Vegas, I approached the employee behind the little counter and sheepishly asked if, by some crazy chance, they knew w...

Re: 2017/7/22: NES: Ninja Gaiden, Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos, Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom

I'm delighted to respond to these reviews as these are among my all time games. First and foremost, I honestly think Episode 3 should lose AT LEAST two grade points for its combination of difficulty and limited continues. As a kid I looked forward to that game like no other and was so discouraged by...

Re: I Like Short Games

Perhaps I know how to manage my time better. Think of all the other lengthy behaviors people engage in, such as time online, time staring at their phones, time binge-watching TV shows. Sorry if you feel shamed. Don't feel sorry that he decided to feel "shamed" instead of automatically thi...

Re: Should nintendo drop the gimmicks?

Hi Everyone, I think we are all skirting around the real issue here. Nintendo is putting out consoles that are lower specs than their competitors. I remember back in the 16 bit days when graphical horsepower was the rallying cry on Nintendo fans. They were right. The SNES was, in most categories, b...

Re: Should nintendo drop the gimmicks?

Why would they want to get rid of "gimmicks?" Why not try to push the envelope a little? You only consider it a gimmick because you don't like it. But "gimmicks" can sometimes bring. Good gamers new ways to play. In case you weren't aware, not all gamers are "hardcore shoote...

Re: Should original Xbox review be updated to reflect its poor reliability?

Poor reliability relative to what? An optical disc-based console that is multiple generations removed? Are we comparing it to solid state, cartridge-based consoles? If you ask me, lasting until now, after running hours and hours on end through years and years, seems fairly respectable. To me, poor r...
