    The Quest to Find a Nintendo Switch Thread

    There's an ad on craigslist where I live of a guy selling a Switch with Zelda for $275. That was the most tempted I've been to buying one so far, but I'm determined to wait for a bundle with two games included for $300 or a ridiculous exclusive bundle like Metroid Prime 4.  I'm willing to be...

    Super NT - Upcoming Retro SNES

    The Super NT appeals to me as someone who is interested in playing old games on modern TVs with as little lag as possible. There are many routes you can take with software or hardware emulation, and the Super NT is a good example of highly precise (and expensive) hardware emulation.  I think if...

    Uncharted 4: A Thiefs End

    I recently replayed through 1-3 of the series and while I'm really looking forward to 4, I think I'll wait until there's a sub $30 bundle of the main game and the stand-alone entry that came out recently. You know it's going to happen.

    Dragon's Crown for PS3 (49.99) and Vita (39.99) - 8/6/2013

    I'd love to pick up Dragon's Crown, but Masamune on Vita is still a smoldering check on my gaming pile of shame list that I haven't played yet.

    Nintendo 3DS - General Discussion Thread

    That seems like a good price, though I'll admit, for whatever reason I haven't gotten into the monster hunter series. I tried a bit of the Wii one a friend bought me, and a bit of the 3DS demo but it didn't click for me. Maybe I should give it another shot if another demo or something comes along

    What's a game you've played multiple times?

    You sir, have good taste in games. Objectively. I replay games a lot, 1) to re-experience them and see how my thoughts about them change, and 2) because I'm a cheap ass and at this point I have a big back catalog of games. Every year I replay Super Metroid and Link to the Past to be reminded of...

    Stupid question about the nintendo switch

    I'm in the same boat as you bud, waiting for a good deal on a Switch, but if the supply and demand have been any indication, I don't think we'll see any price cuts or good bundles for some time. It's still printing Nintendo money faster than they can make them.

    Zelda Breath of the Wild - gameplay discussion

    I know what you mean, I recently dug up my Wii and have been replaying some of the greats (Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, Metroid Prime Trilogy, House of the Dead Overkill, etc). I'm playing these on a 4k TV, but I was surprised how well the art style holds up on a lot of the Nintendo Wii games...

    Zelda Breath of the Wild - gameplay discussion

    Hard to say, though so far Nintendo remastered Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, so I wouldn't be too surprised if Skyward Sword gets one on the Switch as well. We can dream!

    Zelda Breath of the Wild - gameplay discussion

    Thanks for your thoughts! Since this game's release I've tried to avoid as much video coverage/reviews. With games or movies that I know I'm going to buy, I try to not spoil as much as possible before seeing it. I've been replaying Skyward Sword on my Wii and enjoying it, but I'd be curious to...

    I'm excited to play Persona 5, particularly given your high praise. I can think of few games that were as impact full as P5 was to you, though Final Fantasy X and the Last of Us would rank among them.

    Nintendo Switch - General Discussion Thread

    I'd be very interested in getting a Switch, but as I've said elsewhere on this forum, I think I'll wait til a really killer bundle. I've been dying to play Zelda, Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon 2. Just upgraded my PS4 to a PS4 Pro so I think I'll wait a bit and enjoy Ratchet & Clank.

    Official Mass Effect: Andromeda Discussion (Hype/Speculation/Anticipation)

    Man what a bummer to hear you say that not a single mission in ME:A is of the same caliber as previous entries in the game. I *might* play the remaining five hours of the trial just to see if it gets better, but I get the sneaking suspicion this game will be relegated to the dustbin of history...

    Thanks for the advice, I remember being very excited to play CC:FFVII when it first came out and then I never even put it in my system! With the remake coming out in the next 2+ years, now might be the right time for a stroll down memory lane.

    is psp vita really dead?

    To quote the bard, "In me thou sees the twilight of such day, as after sunset fadeth in the west." The Vita may not be dead, but its sun has set and only the faint glow over the horizon remains.

    Official Mass Effect: Andromeda Discussion (Hype/Speculation/Anticipation)

    I downloaded ME: A for the free 10 hour trail and I couldn't get five hours in. The opening was bland and uninspired, the characters uninteresting. The gameplay, particularly the car in the open-world sections on planets just wasn't fun for me. Not sure I would pick this up even for free. How...

    gamecube is nintendo second best console

    My Wii recently bit the dust after 11 years. I sent it to the shop so we'll see, but I was thinking the other day of what a shame that there are so many great GCN games that the further we go out and as Gamecube's become more rare, will likely be shuffled into the dustbin of gaming history. I...

    So I probably got about half-way through Ghost Trick when it first came out, and even though I was really enjoying it I think I got lost in a puzzle somewhere and let it drift to the back of the game shelf. I recently played one of the phoenix wright games and really enjoyed that, and it...

    Thanks man! I agree Jeanne D'Arc is criminally not well known. It's like a pre-French revolution take on Final Fantasy Tactics or Tactics Ogre.
