Re: Where does the time go?

I was just thinking about this the other day, but with my more modern console options. I was thinking about how I would no doubt be getting an NX in a couple years, and how that'd be the fourth Nintendo console in my life since I started having careers. The Gamecube I bought in University, but start...

Re: VR and Console Stagnation

and now its 4k...a resolution boost that I have read will have little or any improvement at common viewing distance. But if I have to read one more tech fetishist write something gross like how "silky smooth" those "sweet 4K resomulutions" are, I'm going to throw up. Seriously, ...

Re: New Improved XboxOne Console in 2017

Many consumer goods have different models, such as car companies with brands, models and then upgrade packages - all refreshed each year with minor changes, and major changes every half decade or so. I think MS and Sony want this for consoles. These mid gen updates are pushing prestige features lik...

Re: New Improved XboxOne Console in 2017

Then I guess that makes me the "glass all the way empty" guy. I think that never before has console gaming needed to differentiate more on lifespan than now. With mobile games, Facebook games, cheap computers, free to play, Steam, etc. The consumer choice is already huge. If it doesn't com...

Re: Help! Game room ideas?

Now that we finally sold our old house and have bought a new one, I'm back to having a game room again too. I got a great shelf from my uncle. It's a literature rack (like they have at the library). You know the ones where the front is for magazines and they store all the back issues under the flip ...

Re: New Improved XboxOne Console in 2017

I absolutely hate this. I am finally not the person consoles are being sold to I guess. This does nothing but make me decide I don't want either system, and ensures I won't early adopt EVER, as early adopters are basically being told they are morons. If you early adopted one of these consoles, congr...

Re: Nintendo needs a subscription service

I dont think a Nintendo sub service would work as I dont feel their systems are marketed towards "gamers." Yes, there would be people that would jump all over that, but I dont think there would be enough to justify the service. But that's just it. Casual fans are even more comfortable wit...

Re: Nintendo needs a subscription service

There is the unveiled Nintendo Account system. Here is an article from a few months ago: http://kotaku.com/nintendo-introduces-a-new-account-system-1739331768 Its account based to tie together their mobile offerings too (and the article says PC, but what does Nintendo have on PC?) and maybe tie int...

Nintendo needs a subscription service

This past Christmas I got a PS TV, specifically so I could stop missing out on the amazing console game deals Microsoft and Sony are tying to their consoles (and Vita). I hated on these subscription services when they were announced (notably PS+) as I saw it as a fancy kind of DRM that would eventua...

Re: Dads/fathers: when do you find time to play?

I'm 38 with five kids 10 and under. You, Sir, deserve a medal. I'm 34 and have 2, and have no idea how you are managing to keep up with that. Simply amazing. I think a supportive wife is definitely a plus. Mine both plays some games (notably Animal Crossing) and enjoys watching me play some of them...
