Its dangerous to go alone. Here, try this:

Anyway, as an older gamer, I am a bit tired of all these twitch and reflex based games that are in realtime.

A return to turn-based mechanics, so at the very least you could appreciate the graphics everyone is so overly focused on, would be nice.

I don't play many games and the few I do play I play them on hard to make them last a little longer. I only care about online when it comes to fighting games and nothing more so those often last me the longest. I mean, I've been playing MvC3/UMvC3 for years now and still play it online in between games.

But if I were a reviewer playing multiple games a week I would play them all on easy or normal to beat them fast to write the review. But based on age I really don't know what to say... Adult gamers often have lots of games since they have the money to buy tons of them and playing them all on high difficulty while having a huge backlog, that must feel like work and not fun at all.

But the reason why Nintendo has so few Shareholders is because of MICROSOFT trying to do their Hostile Take-over.
(In the days, right before X-box, when Microsoft was trying to buy Nintendo.)

They re-bought the bulk of their stock and only re-sold it to people who could not be swayed.


He shouldn't be so hard on himself. Some games kick your butt for a number of reasons. I know when it has happened to me- if I put the game down and then come back to it later- sometimes I do waaaaaay better.

I think this is because:
-You stop psyching yourself out.
-You discover something new as you think about it during cool-off.
-The Force is with you on the 2nd Game play set.

If you only have a weekend however, I can see how this could become an impossibility.

Is it me or does Adam move and seem ultra hyper like a crack addict. Has ever been addicted to drugs or anything or been in rehab?

This is one of his more docile videos. Funny you bringing that up, eh?

Can't tell you how many times I've thought this exact same thing, glad I am not the only one.
