Amazing that Destiny 2 is that cheap a little over six months after release. I’d say that was a fail.
My take is that they botched the end game so much that it became a mainstream meme, so Activision/Bungie just killed it and put the resources into the 3rd game. If I were Bungie I'd want to get this crap trilogy wrapped up ASAP so their contract can end and they can jump ship. I have a feeling Bungie will never work with Activision again.
This is true. My point however is that by turning this into modern day Steam, it's actually MORE difficult to conveniently find quality games. All you have to do is look at Steam to understand what this eShop is slowly becoming. Nintendo has stated they want 20-30 games per week on eshop. That tells me they value quantity over quality - another Steam marketplace failure. I don't see how anyone could think that's a good idea for the regular gamer (unless you think the likes of the Apple app store and Steam are healthy marketplaces, of course).
I like the fact i can choose what I like, and not be told what is “good” and what shouldnt be allowed on the system.
What one person likes doesnt mean everyone likes.
It's a bubble that's going to burst and may possibly hurt even the most reputable of 3rd party developers. There is such a thing as too much, especially in this industry.
There's no denying that Steam isn't as healthy of a store because they have oversaturated the marketplace. Repeating this history would be an oversight on Nintendo's part.
And prior to the switch the complaint was nintendo wouldnt put many games in the store from 3rd parties..
All they are doing (nintendo/steam/apple/android/sony/etc) are giving people the ability to put their game out there for the masses to see.
I agree. Not trying to imply they are being nefarious as Steam has been accused of. I just think it's a poor business practice. There needs to be a middle ground, which would involve a healthy amount of curation. Nintendo has historically done a great job with this, then stopped halfway through the 3ds's life when they started putting horrible fodder on the eshop. I'm always up for new and inventive games, but since Nintendo obviously knows what the difference between a good and bad game is, they need to be more involved and more picky.
If you were looking for a tent in Wal-mart and there were literally hundreds of brands ranging from Coleman all the way down to every garage-dwelling small business, customers would have a more stressful time figuring out the best options. The bubble would grow, sales and consumer confidence falls, and some of even the best tent makers would go out of business. This is where Wal-mart comes in as a buyer-curator to ease the process. A little market research should be done before selling to customers. Nintendo does not seem very interested in this in regards to the eShop, and that's disappointing.
That's how it's come to having Astro Bears headlining every sale. It's gross and reminds me of the Apple app store from 5 years ago (idk what it's like today)
Minecraft- I think this is the new update that allows cross play with Xbox and pc, yes? Will have to try it out.
They totally should have launched the update alongside a livestream of Phil Spencer and Reggie playing co-op on their respective consoles.
...Mario rabbids, I loved it, thought it was a little long but decent challenge at times and a fun way to incorporate a ubisoft property I don't care at all about.
I agree it was long in the tooth. There are some missions I found to be purposefully difficult and my cynical self couldn't help but feel like it was padding. The mechanics themselves are solid, original, and best of all, fun, however the pacing needs work.
LOL BINGO?? So much for Wii being the center of entertainment in nursing homes.
Very tempted to pick up Owlboy and/or Mantis Burn Racing. Both look cool. Though I never liked the original $25 pricepoint for Owlboy; $17 is closer to an MSRP than a sale price for me :(
Mantis Racing reminds me of that Motorstorm RC game on Vita - what a gem! One of my very few platinum trophies too.
Thanks Frisky. I also apologize. The internet makes people appear less human and I resent it wholly because it gives us an edge to not be as polite as we would be in person. This is a systemic problem that we all need to deal with. Some are affected more than others (hint: me, as in I'm part of it) but we're all in it together nonetheless.
I appreciate the work that gets put into this thread however Im not sure what use it has for the grand majority of us since is YMMV. If you're coming here, then going to Target frequently in mere hopes they'll have the particular clearance game, you're wasting your time.
Everyone on that GoW kick. I still need to play most of the originals..........
IMO they haven't aged very well, and certainly aren't as mechanically sound as this latest one. 1 and 2 feel "floaty" today, as does 3 though not as much and it has a slightly deeper combat system.
Who cares? Seriously. Who?

I care about that more than care about what device you type your forum posts on xD
And TBH I looked up the difference between steel and metal because I was curious ("cared"). And in this context, no, hardly a difference. Since steel is a variation of metal, a steel book could conceivable also be called a metal book, but a metalbook cannot be called a steelbook.
The more you....know?
