I agree and disagree. Yes rose tinted glasses have burned me many times but quality is still quality.

To this day Jaws is the best film I have ever seen and Resident Evil 4 is the best game I have ever played.

This game looks like trash though, so may be a drunken purchase!

@Brainflowers

Yeah the game probably is amazing but sometimes a game is not for me no matter how good it is eg Persona 5.

That is why I am willing to wait and see how gamers react over next few months to it as I am in no rush and I am willing to give a game a chance if word of mouth is good.

For some reason I can't reply to your message below (well above now) directly.

I agree how you got the required moons on Mario was open to the player but the actual progression was pretty strict and linear and there was some moons you had to get in each level to progress the story. Also you had to unlock each stage in order, unless you found paintings to the other worlds which showed a glimpse of them in advance. But you had to meet set targets to get to complete the game.

Either way my point stands that EA has been the one doing all the backtracking lately, and everyone knew they were full of shite.

That is true haha. But the thing with the Last of Us is after being out for a year and a half already the praise for the game from the community just seemed to grow to the point of me deciding I needed to get the game.

I think for GoW it is worth me doing the same and seeing how it fairs with the gaming community generally. Word of mouth is a powerful thing and something I would pay more attention to than reviews.

The reviews say the game is incredible, and that is great and all, but from all the footage I have seen I am just not feeling it no matter how good the graphics are. The gameplay just looks very samey and plodding to me.

Maybe when it goes down in price I will pick it up, after all I held off on Last of Us until the PS4 version and it is now one of my favourite games of all time.

Sonic Generations on the 360 gave me a headache because of the blur effect they used mixed with the 30fps and I was amazed more people didn't seem to have that issue as I never saw anyone complain about it.

60fps would be an awesome update for Xbox One players, or even just an option to turn that blur effect off!

Firewatch announced for Nintendo Switch

@FilthyAnimal

As a Wii U owner I think you are remembering the games releases on that system with rose tinted glasses. The Wii U would go months without first party titles and towards the end the quality of the first party titles was awful with the likes of a bare bones Mario Tennis and Animal Crossing party game.

All third party games arrived at the start of the Wii Us life then dried up wehereas on Switch they are still getting announced as the Switch is a success so far. The Switch eshop is already leagues better than the Wii U eshop and yes there is shovelware but that applies to Steam, Xbox One and PS4 so that point is moot.

Plus the portability of the console is its USP and a very good one at that. Anyone at this point surprised that the Switch doesn't get the same third party offerigs as the other consoles hasnt been paying attention for the last 20 years and that is their own fault, but itnis already better than the Wii U in that regard. The 3DS had a slow start but now has an outstanding catalogue of games exclusive to it and considering Nintendo will soon be uniting its forces to make games only for the Switch I think it is going to get better and better.

I would consider cameos fun surprises that add to the enjoyment of the first watch of a movie and therefore consider them spoilers, can't imagine I am the only one. And yes I didn't expect to see any spoilers for a film that won't be released until 28th March in the UK actually on a videogame website regardless of the genre of movie.

First of all, the spoilers for Ready Player One are not appreciated.

Secondly, the reason why I would play a game based off a movie is I would get to interact with something I previously only got to watch so it would get me more involved in that experience. Games already provide me with a way to interect in their world and therefore a movie is only ever going to be a step back.

To this day the only great videogame based movie I have seen is Street Fighter 2: The Animated Movie and that was because it's the only one I have seen that fleshed out the characters I already knew and loved.

Nintendo's new spring eShop sale features some of the best Switch savings yet

SBandy

@robfielding

You edited your post again to add a whole new paragraph. Not exactly correcting spelling errors as you have claimed but at this point I don't care, I know your type.

Here is my first (unedited) response:

"Nintendo don't price the game as it is a third party game. Why in the world don't people with an IQ over 1 understand this yet?!"

So my very first line is as I said it was so you are incorrect....again. I take back my IQ line against that poster (just them).

Your stock response is to say wait and see if it is in line with PSN in 6 months but I have pointed out examples that have already happened or are happening right now. Also you don't consider that third parties may look at the Switch userbase and maybe decide that they are willing to pay more so why apply the same sale prices as on other console online stores. There are many reasons why sale prices don't tally up with others rather than just the evil Nintendo overlords.

Either way I am done now as life is too short. Plus I will be blocking you as soon as the option becomes available for obvious reasons so we shall not revisit this. And if in six months or whatever you think of my username and want to have a go at me about an argument this petty, well that is just a bit sad isn't it?

A direct quote from one of your older posts:

"Nintendo will not let 3rd party "AAA/Retail/Whatever" prices undermine their own, hence the really stingy sale prices which would be laughable on every other store front going."

Does that not contradict what you said in your last post:

"YET AGAIN you haven't even touched upon, aside from rinsing your weaksauce fifa 50% off shite. FIFA is weak as a comparison because its not directly competing with anything from nintendo's ip."

What are the rules here? Whatever suits your narrative perhaps as all of a sudden it has to be direct competitors to Nintendo's own games who they won't let them have a decent sales price on? I can't keep up.

This all began because I said Nintendo don't choose the prices of the third party sale prices and gave a couple of examples, Oxenfree and Fifa 18 which are polar opposites but had very decent sales prices.

It appears to me that seems to indicate Nintendo let third parties do what they want.

Please tell me what part of your argument I should pay special attention to.

Also we do not agree on anything so don't spout that again.

The original post I was notified of from you:

"@SBandy For starters it seems impossible to block on this new site(to my horror)as it stands, secondly you never got into anything in the first place you spent all of 20 odd posts ignoring 99% of everything, and cherry picking 1 or 2 things you want to tunnel vision on. As for your one notion of "nintendo dont tell them how to price etc" i'll simply repost what i said previously for the 3rd time:

I guess if i'm wrong we will see PSN style prices before long, what with publishers "free to charge what they want", as its getting to the time where lots of stuff has been available for a long time now on switch...i suspect however, we wont.

Alas though, we established ages ago you take only want you want from posts, and are either too stupid to respond accordingly, or you know you cannot give an adequate answer to most points made, so you do what all stupid people do and sidestep everything.

Nevermind peace out."

You have issues, seriously. If someone annoyed me to the point where I declared I was going to block them, if I wasn't technically able to I would still have nothing to do with them and I certainly wouldn't go back to them to continue this stupid argument a day later. You have anger issues.

Call me stupid all you want but you are the idiot here. For starters don't use quotation marks if you aren't quoting what people actually said you dolt. Also that thing you keep repeating is not proof of anything, and like I said previoulsy Fifa 18 is 50% off and that is very similar to a PSN sale price for a big third party game so there is some proof to what I have said.

We clearly won't agree so I shall simply end by saying jog on you wanker and you can take your "peace out" and shove it....but wait you edited your post again because you are a dick. Fuck off.

My main point was Nintendo doesn't tell third party devs how to price their games in a sale. Prove me wrong with evidence or shut the hell up.

I can't reply directly with this new system.

Here was your comment:
"skyrim needs to be much cheaper...4k remaster was recently 15 on psn."

Are you seriously telling me that you were not implying Doom on Switch should also be 15 during a sale?

Any normal person would read that as I did. Also do not pretend you want a discussion you just like having a few digs at people. I like a fool reacted to your initial dig at me.

I also note you still haven't responded to the substance of my replies and instead try to just insult me. A clear sign you have no answer to my points.

You are correct you said 15 rather than 10 for the Skyrim 4K remaster. A massive difference for sure.

The point is....what is your point? Are you telling me you know that Nintendo goes to all these other companies and threatens them not to have a good sale price as it devalues their games?

As I said above EA currently have Fifa 18 at 50% off, Doom and Skyrim are both a third off and their own game Arms is a third off which is quite unusual for Nintentdo.

Other games have been as much as 75% off so what is your point?

Oh you said "fully fledged not paired back". Nevermind just another muppet who can't understand the Switch is not trying to be a PS4 or Xbox One.

To sum up, you're still talking gibberish.

Well, while you ignore my reply to you above, why would Bethesda for example reduce the price of Skyrim or Doom to 10 quid? They don't treat those games as extensions of the PS4 etc games they treat them as brand new Switch games and they won't reduce their value by 80% after 6 months on the market. It is just common sense.

Also your ridiculous comment earlier about Nintendo not letting third partys undercut their prices just shows you haven't a clue as that would mean there wouldn't be any bloody sales as Nintendo just does not let the price of their mainline games drop until years later. Good luck finding Mario Kart 8 or Breath of the Wild discounted in the near future.

To sum up, you're are talking gibberish.

Miyamotosan admits themselves they actually don't know so in essence have a baseless complaint. Just like you do.

Oxenfree had a 75% discount about a month ago and I bought it as a result and it shot up to No.1 on the uk eshop.

Fifa 18 is near 50% off right now. You think Nintendo is putting the pressure on EA?

Doom is awesome, incredible. I mean that just generally too, no matter what console/PC you have, make the effort to pick it up as it has the most satisfying singler player campaign in any FPS since Goldeneye. Replayability is off the charts too just from how good the combat feels.

Might bite on Arms finally.

The sea in this game looks absolutely fantastic from the videos I have seen. Unfortunately that is the only compelling thing I have seen or read about the game no matter how many people try to convince others of how great this game is. But each to their own.

I maintain this game would not be getting this much focus if Xbox One had anything approaching a decent level of exclusive games.
