#13721991 How old does a game or console have to be to be called "Retro"?

Posted by KillerRamen on 23 May 2017 - 04:09 PM

VR has a place, but I'm not convinced that it's the future of gaming. They've tried it many times before and this current iteration is cool, but it's still not quite there yet. The biggest problem I see is motion sickness from prolonged play.

As a training and engineering tool, VR is great and I don't see it going anywhere.

I know people have been saying that Jinder has the stereotypical foreigner gimmick, but his current run reminds me more of JBL's WWE Championship run. He may not be the greatest wrestler on the Smackdown roster, but he is a pure heel and he's certainly paid his dues. I certainly didn't expect him to actually win, so being surprised is actually kind of nice. It would be interesting if they haven't made his plates yet if for no other reason that it would give him something to complain about for a couple of weeks.

The Maharaja's real test will be how people react to him on Tuesday.

Braun also has a very different role that he's trying to fill. As a giant/strongman type, I think he's doing as well as can be expected given how little time he's been at it. He's being booked as a new Big Show or Mark Henry, not the next John Cena.

anyone invested in a usb type c to a adapter for charging purposes? Any suggestions?


I ended up just picking up the Nintendo one. There are cheaper options, but USB-C is still relatively new to the point that I just don't trust the offbrand stuff. I don't want to risk frying my new device.

GameStop sells a Nyko charging cable for $20, you can get the Samsung cable off Amazon for $25, the Google Cable is $35 and the Insignia cable is $25.

I keep getting sidetracked in the game, so I guess I should try to rescue Zelda now. I was able to beat one dungeon and I've opened up most of the map. I've also gone horse hunting and I think I have the good ones minus the Amiibo horse.

I also got a few of the Great Fairies opened up along with the

I've also found this is the one game where I actually use the Amiibos for something other than decoration. I don't think it hurts the game, but it is pretty funny seeing meat and fish fall from the game. 

 

Also, am I the only one that finds the shrines without beating them right away? I want to find as many as I can since I can just fast travel them when I want a power-up.

I know I'm supposed to go to Zora's Domain or whatever the first dungeon is called, but I'm too busy exploring the world and getting weapons that I probably shouldn't have at this stage in the game. Also I'm too busy trying to catch

The pre-sale numbers have been pretty strong. Before Amazon sold out, Zelda was the best selling game there. The GameStop by me pre-sold their initial allotment of 40 systems and they got more for the launch. Best Buy stores seem to getting pallets of them and they sold out online pretty quick.

We don't know how they'll do, but it seems like they're going to have a good day tomorrow. It's easily going to outsell the Xbox One launch. Definitely enough to justify a midnight launch.

I'm glad it was just a firmware issue that was easily solved.

No mandatory installs makes me very happy. Being able to pop in a new game and just play it is very appealing to me. The 50 GB patch for the Halo Collection is a big reason why I keep dragging my feet on the Xbox One.

I know this was a couple of pages back, so VC isn't available at launch, but Fast RMX and Shovel Knight will be??

Wanna make sure I got it right, cuz I'm looking forward to Fast RMX.

Anyone know if they have a price on it already?

They're not Virtual Console games, so they should be fine so long as their respective developers don't delay them between now and March 3rd.

The launch could have been worse... You could have been forced to spend an extra $100 to buy a stupid camera and have a bunch of ports that played better on the cheaper/superior console.

If Zelda is awesome, then I'll personally consider the launch a success. I'll be taking the 3DS with me for a business trip this weekend and I'm looking forward to replacing it with the NS.

The mistake I often make at launch is that I tend to buy a bunch of filler games just because the system is new. This time it's Zelda and Bomberman in March, Mario Kart and Puyo Puyo Tetris in April and Disgaea 5 in May. Then it's E3 in June. I personally don't think that's bad for the first three months and it's not like I don't already have a giant backlog.

My local V-Stock (a regional new/used video game/music/movie/book store) had a sign saying that they will be getting Switches at launch. However, they won't be taking any pre-orders so it will be first come, first serve.

I wasn't going to take the Friday off for the launch, but now I'm thinking about it... Getting a new console is a lot of fun! :whee:
