Whoever claims that graphics don't matter wasn't old enough to remember the wonders a graphics boost did to SNES games, in particular 'Yoshi's Island'. Not just from a visual standpoint with its advanced 2D effects and rendering, sprites, polygons, etc, but from a gameplay one as well.
Please, I'd like to hear all about how that game would've been remotely the same on vanilla hardware.
I'm buying a Switch. But accept it for what it i...
It's the tired "Nintendo focuses on gaming first" argument.
Despite the fact that the inclusion of a Netflix app wouldn't take anything away from it and is a separate business entirely. No time or money is being taken away from game designers or network developers from creating a decent online service, in exchange for media apps.
As someone else mentioned bellow. Far Cry 3 did it better. And it had a better balance in tone and didn't take itself too seriously, so it doesn't feel so inconsistent and contradictory.
This. The moaning got annoying quick. The new games take themselves too seriously and feel forced.
Classic Lara knew what she wanted and was a thrill seeker of sorts. She had the right personality for the adventure.
Playing the more recent top-down Lara Croft games made me miss her character more.
Pretty much this. I was looking forward to Scalebound as well, but unfortunately that's no more.
And with a half decent PC i can play pretty much every XO game.
@Dan_scruggs and @343_Guilty_Spark
are the type of people here who think N4G is run by Sony fanboys.
Is that the one where they spent 20 minutes talking about the camera angles in Pokemon?
" if this were said about Sony or Microsoft, far fewer would contest it"
Nah, I've seen enough evidence to the contrary.
"Theyve been reserving wiiu games for the Switch"
People said that last time.
You could play as Diddy years ago without needing to beat the game at 100%. And forced motion controls were always a weak point in Wii games.
And yeah, the narrative in Other M wasn't good and once again forced motion controls were a thorn in a game with otherwise good gameplay mechanics. Pointing at the screen to find some random bit of info and coming to a complete stop in the middle of combat to use missiles was awful.
I'm gonna take a wild guess before I actually read it and say that the complaint with Chrono Cross is that it wasn't Chrono Trigger 2.
Battlefield has been selling 15 mil on average, whether you care for the game or not, is a pretty beastly number.
I see people still don't like to do the least bit of research.
I remember all those things fans said Nintendo would never dare do unlike the inferior two competitors.
But then ended up doing them anyway.
How do they absolutely nail the Hawaii feel?
It's just a sand castle which could represent any beach with nothing region specific about its design.
Also a stuffed animal and a crab. We've seen crabs before.
People want a proper Metroid game and we haven't gotten one in a long time. Instead we got a handheld spin-off.
StarFox Zero wasn't even supposed to be a full game. It was originally meant to be a quick pick up and play a mission type of game until Nintendo realized that fans actually wanted a full game. They didn't even know. THEY DIDN'T EVEN KNOW. And that's why it was delayed.
Nintendo remains clueless about what their fanbase wan...
Actually, with Microsoft putting more games on PC, leaving Xbox with less and less exclusives, there's even less of a reason to consider buying an Xbox One.
At least Sony and Nintendo give you reasons.
Apparently Rare Replay = all N64 games /s
With MS putting more games on PC leaving the console with less exclusives of its own, there's even less of a reason to get an Xbox.
There's a bundle.
Many people already have the camera, that's why they're not bundled by default.
I actually played with the PSVR and I didn't experience the issues he mentioned and/or other people have speculated on.
