  3. I really wish Sega had a throwback Genesis console that wasn't made out of literal poo.

      To be honest, the Nintendo ones are basically just passable. It kinda leads me to believe if we ever do get a mythological N64 or Gamecube mini that they'll just be missing huge swaths of fantastic games from those respective libraries.

      The SEGA case isn't too surprising though. SEGA has proven all throughout history that they're lousy custodians of their own history. They're content shoveling out these older titles as a quick buck, and take no pride in their own history.

      The titles and content isn't bad in most of the Megadrive mini-consoles, just they're placed into a cheaply made console with appalling emulation. The sound is nearly always tone deaf and the frames and graphics are often choppy. What's more AtGames seldom even try to improve with every billionth rerelease, I think only the most recent one doesn't have out of key music in every game (though the sound still isn't exactly good).

      Which really sucks, because you know what? Damnit I might want a portable SEGA Genesis clone. That's such a cool idea. It's just that AtGames is such shit.

  4. >watches Infinity War's special features

    Russos: "Audiences are smart, they find out one detail and instantly figure out where the plot is going. So we had to be very secretive. We worked very hard to make sure there wouldn't be any leaks."

  5. Thinking about what's really going on at the end of Infinity War is chilling, to put it mildly. Spoilers ahead, just in case anyone still hasn't seen it.
     

    Spoiler

     

    I'm betting it's more than just half of humanity that bites the dust. The end credits scene shows now-driverless cars and helicopters losing control, smashing into buildings and other vehicles.These accidents are bound to be injuring and killing yet more people and this is happening on a global scale. And because hospitals around the world have now lost at least half of their work force (possibly more, depending on how the 50/50 life or death lottery turned out) a lot of injured people likely aren't going to be treated and could die from their wounds.

    Also consider what kind of crapsack world it will be once the initial panic is over. Half of humanities workforce is suddenly gone, so say goodbye to functioning economies. Many people are now left with little to no family, including children. You can't even really say there will be more food to go around like Thanos intends, because wiping out half of all life is bound to affect livestock. So really, not too much changed there. I guess there's more veggies to go around at least, so that's something.

      Yeah, the more the I think about it, the more Thanos' plan doesn't really make sense, but that's probably the point given his back story.

      The whole universe has been affected and yeah things will get worse before they get better.

  6. It's kind of a shame Nintendo's crackdown on roms had to happen right as I got an NES Mini and want to load it with more ga- UH I MEAN

    Thank god Nintendo's finally cracking down on scummy, illegal, unethical roms. Anyone who says otherwise should DIE. Yep. That's what I meant to say all along.

      Just put a pirate hat on while you download things online... that makes everything ok. 👌

      In the wake of their average-to-disasterous online service, and dropping their original way of releasing their older titles (plus still no GCN VC), this'll only make them look more vulnerable those hackers.

      Even my big brother's SNES has the whole lot of titles from NES to Genesis.

    3. Bobnik

      I wouldn't care too much about this if all the older games were more accessible/preserved without pirating. And I don't just mean games that came out before 3D era. For example, Fire Emblem Path of Radiance and I think Radiant Dawn at that time sold so poorly, it's prrtty much impossible to get the game at a reasonable price, people ask for hundreds of dollars, which is just absurd. The only other way is to download a ROM illegally and play on an emulator. Same with NFS Most Wanted PC version or any other NFS game before Undercover, purely because there's no other way to get the game (not related to Nintendo, but the point is pretty much the same).

      If preservation wasn't a problem, this wouldn't have been a big problem. But, while it certainly is a bit better, it's still a pretty big issue in my book.

      There's many games from ye olden days I love and don't have a chance of hell of getting re-released due to licensing issues. The Konami TMNT games are my favorite examples of this. Even something like Sunset Riders, which Konami probably still holds the rights to, sure as shit isn't going to resurface under modern Konami. Even if they cared enough to bother re-releasing it, it would inevitably be mobile only and stuffed with microtransactions so why even bother?

      And then many other games are so fucking rare and expensive that trying to get your hands on a copy in 2018 is unrealistic for most people, to say nothing of the potential hassle of getting an old console properly running on a modern TV.

  7. You ever let your digital movie codes pile up and up and up until one day you decide to finally redeem them all and you wind up shocked at the vast number of movies you've bought that you never even opened? I expected to redeem maybe two or three movies, I wound up with sixteen.

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      Also it's a good thing the "expiration dates" on these codes are apparently bullshit. I left one movie unopened for so long that the code had supposedly expired at the end of last year. It ended up redeeming just fine though.

  8. It took a year and a half (or maybe longer at this point) but I finally snagged an NES Classic. I'm really enjoying it. I especially like how ridiculously easy it is to add your own games to it *whistles innocently*

      I mean I'm just saying, I used to play a lot of TMNT 2 on my NES and having a throwback system without it felt a little incomplete ;)

      Just let her know I have a legal TMNT  2 cartridge in my closet. The ROM on my computer is a backup. The one on my NES Classic is a backup of the backup.

  9. Another thing that worries me about Switch's online: what happens when kids start going to their parents asking for $20 so they can keep playing Splatoon or Mario Kart 8 online, despite those having been free up until now? I get the feeling Nintendo's gonna be getting some angry phone calls soon, maybe even some media attention depending on how many parents they piss off.

    1. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      That is actually is a bit of a concern. The Switch to my knowledge is the first console that started free then charged for online. Then again I don't really think many will actually complain about this, maybe the parents who themselves are Nintendo fans. If it does happen, it'll be news, Nintendo says something then business as usual next week.

      As sad as it seems, kids these days will treat it as a non issue. If they are will to spend up to $80 on Fortnite V-bucks just to get weapons or all those microtransactions on mobile games and parents say yes, then $20 is no issue for them.

    2. Speederino

      Speederino

      It's not the kids I'm worried about. I just know people don't like having to pay for something that used to be free, regardless of the actual cost. The vast majority of parents who are about to be asked for money aren't going to understand why. Either they refuse to fork over the cash (thus blocking little Timmy from playing Splatoon) or they do understand and aren't happy. No matter how you slice it, this is a recipe for bad things.

      Also, given the number of stories out there about parents getting obscene bills because their kid spent money on microtransactions, I highly doubt many parents out there willingly fork over more than a few bucks for microtransactions. Especially when so many parents simply fork over their phones to their kids and don't even supervise them.

      thank god i'm never having kids

    4. Wraith

      The low price point is their attempt to mitigate that I'm guessing. 

      I feel like we live in a generation where parents are used to being asked to pay for subscriptions/microtransactions anyway, so a lot of them probably wont look that deep into it. There's gotta be some parents like my mom that keep track of every dime and are probably gonna be pissed though

    5. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      It's been nearly a year since the outbreak over Battlefront 2 and how a franchise popular with kids is exposing them to gambling. So I can see at least some parents still on high alert over their kids spending "more than a virtual toy really needs to." 

      Nintendo's cause is harmless in comparasion, but still will be label a suspect by the parents.

  10. Nintendo’s making a big fuss over how the Switch’s online subscription gives access to online enabled NES games. While that’s not necessarily a bad idea by itself, telling me I can  simply watch some random guy take his turn playing Super Mario Bros. 3 doesn’t really make me excited. At all. It’s not even that exciting by couch co-op standards, let alone online.

    1. Sean

      Sean

      It's also not the superior GBA version so it's irrelevant

    2. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      $20 a year is fine, for the online aspect alone. But I'm afraid that the content that comes with it do nothing to justify it.

      You know how overly savage fans can get from changes like this. While I find $20 inoffensive, I know for certain that the most vocal Switch fans will tear it a brand new face.

      This service is becoming a big weakspot for Nintendo, and the media will make sure not to let them live it down.

    3. MegasonicZX

      MegasonicZX

      @SupahBerry It's more the principal than the price for me since it just seems forced, as if the had to come up with reasons to make it paid rather than for any good reason. I don't buy the better servers narrative for a hot second either so i'm inclined to think the online is just held ransom to make 20 dollars seem less dumb for the incredible amount of nothing we're getting.

    4. Speederino

      Speederino

      My one hope is that they eventually add (at least) SNES and N64 games and make some of THOSE online-enabled. While I don't know if online versions of Super Mario Kart or Smash. 64 would draw huge crowds when the Switch already has more appealing versions, I can at least see the merit to making games like those online.

      I just can't think of any first party NES games off the top of my head that I'd really want to play basic multiplayer on at all, let alone online.

    5. DiamondX

      DiamondX

      Honestly, I would be okay with it if it broight at leadt N64 or GCN games.

      PS+ gives PS4, PS3 and PS Vita titles and some of them are amazing like inFAMOUS, Heavy Rain & Beyond: Two Souls, Telltale Batman and others.

    6. JezMM

      Honestly as well, bigging up their constant re-releasing of the same NES games over and over and over again isn't a great look when everyone is mad at them for shutting down rom sites.

    7. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      Most NES games to be honest aren't exactly right to show off online play because they are mainly 1 player or take turns playing. The ones that are more exciting for couch co-op such as Contra/Super Contra, Double Dragon 2, any of the 2 player sports ones (e.g. Super Tecmo Bowl, Blades of Steel, Nintendo World Cup/High School Kunio Kun Soccer) aren't going or unlikely to be in the service. You get your Urban Champion and like it is what Nintendo would say.

      Still I think the online service is going to be a joke. Old NES games aren't really appealing for many people and people find them too much in price for what they are for most games. Online Melee though and people will flock in droves.

      @Speederino There's only Joy Mech Fight that I can think of and even then that's Japan only.

    8. Speederino

      Speederino

      I can think of several third party NES games that could benefit from online (any beat em-up, really. Especially the TMNT games) but yeah those are never ever ever going to show up on this service so fllllllppppppppppppttttttttttt
