Unlcokable costume stuff that is built into the game and not payable DLC is all the single player incentive I need personally. Sounds great!

And Street Fighter 4 had naff all single player content yet got praised to the heavens.

I am attracted to one of these, but I am put off by the thought of having to transfer my current system(new 3ds). In 5 years time when I want to fire up the 3ds to remind myself of past glories it will be lacking a key feature that makes the street pass pictures etc. so cool and unique(3d). Which leaves me with the rather shitty option of having to rebuy everything on the new system. No thanks!

Yooka-Laylee review

Nuts and Bolts continually being hailed as a high point of the series is puzzling to me. The critical reception at the time was lukewarm (7/10 from EG) with the exception of giantbomb who loved it.
This game looks fantastic to me. I will definitely be picking it up. The first BK game is right up there with my favourite games of all time.

Surely having 1000 comments on a Reddit thread is meaningless? It simply means the OP posted a subject controversial enough to spark debate. It doesn't mean thousands of people actually have the issue.

Why on earth have they gone for NES graphics and not those of the arcade original? The NES version was not great. The Arcade original is a stone cold classic.

Nintendo's precarious reveal runs risk of Switching off fans

jonsaan

1 year ago

I was really hoping for the impossible. .....Nintendo as a service....pay 9.99 a month for access to all of Nintendo's historic archive of games across all systems. Instead we get the same old same old...a new system (GameCube) on virtual console with games drip fed over the lifespan of the system, always dangling that carrot of your favourite old games on VC..but never actually delivering. I think I'm out to be honest. I get more joy from retro gaming these days :(

Nintendo has just snuck out one of the best 2D Mario games in years

jonsaan

1 year ago

The trouble with supermario maker on the wiiu is that the vast majority of user created levels are terrible. The best levels were always the Nintendo ones which unlocked character sprites. The fact that the 3ds one has more stuff like this makes it sound brilliant to me.
I think you would have come to hate your train journeys pretty quick if you'd loaded up on user made levels only Duff!

Nintendo hardware sales in the Americas are worse than you'd expect

jonsaan

How about a steam like service that makes Ninty's entire back catalogue available to play on anything? Even their own hardware would be a start. It's very possible too. We can already do it through nefarious means. Make it legal and stable.

The 3ds is poorly supported on the software front. In fact a massive games show like egx didn't have a single 3DS game or system on the entire show floor. Hardly surprising sales are poor right now. The fact that Nintendo still insist on the ancient model of drip feeding first party content onto the equally ancient format of the eshop doesn't help either.

Games of EGX 2016

For me.

Snake Pass was the game of the show

Also liked:
Tokyo 42?
Super Arcade football
Unbox
Aragami
Black and White Bushido

Maybe it was the no show from Nintendo but I really noticed a massive reduction in street pass hits. Last year I must have got 100. This year about 20 :(

@Nadimalam the problem with Bluetooth is that you can't use your headphones at take off and landing on a plane. At least not yet. With wired you can stay plugged in all the way.

Gaming is not an exclusive club for fringe nerds anymore sadly. It's mainstream. Much like the music business. Therefore streamed music on ps4 reflects mass market appeal. Moaning about it, is a bit like moaning about prime time Saturday night TV.

Ah security. Necessary because of this kind of stuff, but sadly almost crippling the IT industry now. Logging in to bloated, encrypted, triple factor authenticated, vulnerability scanned systems makes for slow, unresponsive experiences.

Dead or Alive Facebook page says Xtreme 3 won't head west

jonsaan

2 years ago

The lack of understanding of what these games actually are is amazing really, given the heavy opinions. If you like collecting games like Animal Crossing you would absolutely love DOA Xtreme series (not played this one).

You don't have to dress the characters in next to nothing. That's down to the persuasion of the individual player.

The truth is that Tecmo like to ride the controversy, much like the general assumption that GTA is simply mugging prostitutes and beating them to post sex death.

The Vita is dead - or is it?

jonsaan

3 years ago

I've been a big fan of the Vita since day one. I have three of the things and they are all very dusty these days. What it really needs now is custom firmware. It has the potential to be the best machine for emulators ever. Add that to the stellar line up it already has and it will become legendary.

And no...I'm not a dirty pirate I have spent well over a thousand pounds on Vita games at a guess.
