    Merry Christmas

      almost christmas doesn't mean it's christmas

  2. This is straight up false. The brand awareness being raised by Pokemon Go directly translated to sales for other, main-series Pokemon games, including Sun and Moon.
  3. I don't even really know what to say, Kintor, besides that I think you're completely overreacting. I'm not about to deny the necessity of Nintendo stepping into the mobile space (one of several ways they've been increasing their brand awareness lately) or that the 10 dollar price point was probably a mistake. Those are givens, and they have been for quite some time. But to call a game that saw 21 million dollars of gross revenue in the first 4 days a "dismal failure" is completely backwards to me. It's clear that their release strategy was flawed. How Nintendo adapts and reacts to this remains to be seen.
  4. Honestly, the interest in Nintendo's products on mobile is still there; the fact that Mario Run received a record number of downloads should prove that. To say that they're paying for their "arrogance" is an unusual spin on things for several reasons. Nintendo misread the market, which isn't unexpected, since they're still getting their feet wet when it comes to mobile gaming. I don't think Mario Run's price point was deliberately deceptive, but it was poorly communicated. I don't expect one game to have a long term effect on Nintendo's shares. Investors are notoriously fickle, especially Nintendo's, because every time the company manages to catch lightning in a bottle (pre-release Switch hype, Pokemon Go) they expect them to do it again and again, which is never going to happen. Underperforming game =/= failure.
  5. Happy Birthday.

      Sorry, but politics do not expand my dong.

  11. To be honest, I don't think the character-swapping mechanic would fit Red Dead Redemption nearly as well as it fit GTA5. RDR is much more character-focused.
  12. To add to this, several reports I've seen mentioned the game being held together by "digital duct tape" when describing how poorly programmed it was. Definitely hoping this new game comes to PC at some point but I'm content playing on consoles like I did with the original.
  13. I'm not about to disagree with that, but you're either waiting for more details to make a call or you aren't. I'm not prepared to call it a gimmick, or say that it's probably uncomfortable to hold, or that it's "basically a Wii U" because we really don't know at this point.
  14. I will concede that I am a strange and fussy individual when it comes to bringing electronics anywhere, so please take what I say with a grain of salt. :V
  15. And yet here you are, complaining about the things we haven't been shown, and talking about how other people are getting suckered into the Nintendo hype cycle. I'm personally really skeptical. A "hybrid" console, as we've come to call it, sounds nice on paper, if only because of the merged libraries, but something about the portable aspect of the Switch doesn't sit right with me. It almost looks fragile, and setting up the little controller doohickeys to go play games on the go sounds like a pain in the ass. I thought the DS/3DS worked for a reason; they feel very portable, fitting easily into a pocket, with a clam shell design to protect the screens from damage. I'm not one for portable gaming but I couldn't envision myself taking this to a park, or doctor's office, or wherever else people are actually supposed to play handheld games. At least I'm excited for its potential library-- mainly its first party efforts. As someone who mostly plays games on PC the hardware aspect of consoles is never mind-blowing for me.
  16. Reinhardt has the best voice actor.

      When you're a big lovable german grandpa Crusader with AMAZING hair, what's not to love about your role?

       

      There's only one voice line I'm waiting for from him.

      "LET'S RESOOOLVE THIS PROBLEM IN A WAY THAT BENEFITS US BOTH!"

      If you get the reference. They both came out in the same month.

      Guts has his shitty 2016 anime and Lara has The Angel of Darkness, so if anything, they got played.

      At least it keeps in mind that Guts is the sexiest man to ever grace the PS2 with his presence

    No. And that's probably for the better, at least with regards to PC/consoles. I think the really important thing about Ana is communication. She's much better if you're playing with friends or using a mic, because then you can coordinate strategies much more easily. Even being able to ask one other player "do you want ult?" rather than surprising the hell out of them makes a pretty big difference, IMO. Also to Ana's credit, she's the best support character when it comes to healing tanks. You can put them back in the fight way faster than Zen or Lucio. I definitely agree that she's not good as a solo support, but 2 supports has become the standard in the "meta" for a reason. It's great to have a second healer in case your first one gets picked off. I want to practice with her more, because I am currently terrible at using her tranquilizer.
  20. Console versions run poorly, by all accounts I've heard. This is a problem with Telltale. Their in-house engines are embarrassingly bad and they can never be given enough shit for it. They're the Bethesda of point-and-click adventures, except somehow worse.
