I'll agree that it's not a solid piece of equipment. But, I think that it sucks they took out the functionality on systems that still have the same engine running in them. It actually deters me from upgrading to the X. It isn't without precedent, though. I remember when PS2 killed my iLink cable, making it to where I couldn't play Time Crisis 2 as it was meant to be played. Let's go even further back when Genesis killed the reset butt...
I finally saw this and am oh so pleased. The other ones that are out are gaudy as heck, and I love that the NES and Switch cases I have match like they do with this one. Mind you this one is grey and purple as opposed to red and black, but the zipper closes the deal for me. I like that these subtle things work, and hope they keep a theme up with any future "classic consoles."
I purchased BTTF on PS3 at the tail end of the system's life. I enjoyed Episode 1 but life went on and I never finished. I'm actually pretty psyched about getting that one.
It was worth it to buy one used for half price and get one of those two games for free. ;)
Kinect, for me, is easily worth owning for two things: Dance Central for me acting like an idiot and having fun, and Kinect Party for my kids when they want to have easy-access stupid fun at like a kid's party. Those were the only games I have enjoyed on it, and they couldn't be done any other way (well, I guess that KP is EyeToy-level work). But my hope is that when motion control falls away, we'll get a proper DDR again.
One thing that the Switch lends itself to is multiple units in one home. With my gaming family, a PS4 might need a few more controllers, but we already see the benefit of a switch for each player much like the 3DS.
I really do agree with that idea. I like the fresh aspect of new eyes on something with the backup support of others. Our site isn't a big one, and we all communicate via email and chat lines. When a review company sends a single code it's hard. These big places where they get to walk across the hall to each other's offices is a different thing.
As a reviewer myself, I have a strange opinion on this. Reviewers need to be able to work outside their comfort zones. If you have an FPS head review Doom, they might find the nuances worth pointing out, but a side scroll lover might just see things that bar newbies from getting in on the genre. It provides a fresh outlook. Game reviews are interesting in that it’s an interactive medium: you change the experience based on how you deal with it. News reporters can be biased, so can game reviewe...
Hmm...looks blue and black to me.
That may be your perspective. I'd rather have the NES than he SNES. In my 30s and the NES is what I grew up with. There may be "better" games on the SNES but that doesn't devalue the NES. Mind you I have a NES mini and plan to get a SNES if I find one, but if both were in front of me I'd get the NES.
The fine print in the GameStop app says yes, but it's only worth $75 credit.
The new ones have all features, but the reason the others are missing some parts is because they existed before the Switch. A recent update allowed the system to use them. Kind of a bonus for those who owned them more than being marketed for the Switch.
There's an Atari flashback that plays carts? I haven't seen that yet.
Maybe they can actually one up them by making enough for people to purchase.
I only got to play about 20 minutes, and loved what I saw, even though I lost every match! Looking forward to the next weekend. That night I had a dream I'd like to see to fruition. Unlockable Little Mac. No arms or anything, just makes up for it as a good dodger with moves that get him in and hit hard. It'd be neat to see that variation in a game based on long-range, even if it felt a little out of balance.
I don't sense a parental vibe in this article. Lol. The only one that ever got me was a cutscene in MGS3 that would skip if I pressed start, and it wouldn't pause. It's a balance between game fun and priority. "The house is on fire" vs. "dad where's this one particular hot wheel car." "My day was so boring" vs. "honey I'm pregnant." :) I've had to let go of a lot of these as time goes on. B...
Elite. Beat. Agents.
Good list, but I'm still holding out for Phoenix Wright. I don't care what "tier" he is....I had a blast playing as him! The one or two times I landed his super were worth every moment!
Heads up! I went through this and shared it with friends once I knew it worked. One of my friends is a GameStop employee. He says that this is coming out odd like this because it wasn't supposed to. GameStop is allegedly testing out their new rewards system that goes live next month, and it was supposed to be in-house, with a bonus that they test it with employees. They get a rigorous test, their staff get a free game. Problem, of course, because it's working for everyone. Th...
Neat. Is there a thing I'm missing why the animated version is 127 gamerscore? Also, slightly funny to see a site named after a Sony controller report on an interaction between Microsoft and Nintendo. ^_^
