Most indie developers use retro-themed art as a necessity, not as an aesthetic choice. Simpler art is less costly to produce, and less costly to animate. (animation is a HUGE time-sink) Small teams or individuals simply don't have the budget to produce Call-of-Duty levels of detailed graphics. Many of them are driven to such art styles out of desperation, as opposed to active choice.

Yea, and that's fair, but personally it destroys my interest in otherwise great games with interesting mechanics. If I had it my way I'd say 16 bit should be the minimum : Still easier to make but far more versatile and not limiting, especially for games using mechanics popularized in that era but drawn in 8 bit.... If you're making an 8 bit game then its weird to me having dash and other movements I've never used in an 8 bit game? 

I sympathize for why to go 8 bit but at the same time I find them ugly and it's kept me away from at least a dozen or so games.

The Nintendo tax is still a thing I see.

As long as we pay it, yea....?

I find it more reasonable than the Apple tax personally, so count me in for Overcooked 2.

Two weeks in a row with a price match available on a game bought at launch for Elite Plus members after not having one for a while. Far Cry 5 for $40 plus the $10 pre-order rewards cert is a pretty nice deal.

I've caught them offering deals right outside the normal return window for launch date purchases, I wouldn't be surprised if they time it that way : Only a few weeks ago did they drop Scribblenauts on the Switch in half 15 days after it released. Good incentive to keep you on Elite.

... Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell? They're never gonna stop making these are they? I don't know how to feel about that.

 

 

 

Best Buy deals have been consistently underwhelming especially as of late. Horrible.

Speaking for yourself, maybe, but have you ever checked Best Buy's actual website such as daily deals? Everything from TVs and batteries to video games and movies constantly have amazing deals. Best Buy may not advertise weekly deals in the outdated format of paper ads that speak to you but their online deals are great.

Edit : I'd also double-down and wonder what it is you expect... Are Target and Wal-Mart's ad deals blowing you away? 


In Topic: GameStop Offering SAME Cash or Credit Value on Trade-Ins (Offer Expires 4/22)

Your right, they are seedier and shadier

You're : You are
Your : Possesive, like "your post is ridiculous"

Gamestop is optional, you don't even need to walk in there doors if you don't want. Gamestop saves you time listing on ebay or craigslist, effort driving to a meetup or post office, money on gas and packing materials... You walk in, they offer money, period.

Blind Gamestop hate is stupid, I profit most the time I deal with them... I bought an iPhone last year offer Craigslist for $150 and walked in a Gamestop minutes later to get $230 credit. You're doing something wrong.

Thanks for stopping in a Gamestop thread to bash Gamestop - Great use of your time, A+.
