I disagree with what was said 100%. I can see myself playing Galaxy when I'm 90 years old, without feeling like I'm being insulted. And that applies to the Rachet and Clank series as well.

mikeslemonade5344d ago

I agree with Morgan Webb cause she's hot. How can you disagree with her? I don't really care bout either game. I'm going to play them and not really give a damn.

Valay5344d ago

Woah, woah, woah. Just because someone is attractive doesn't mean you have to agree with anything someone says. And I don't agree that Galaxy is an insult at all.

HDgamer5344d ago

Morgan isn't hot and I disagree with her. I like super mario and ratchet and clank.

Marceles5344d ago

I think mike was being sarcastic. *kinda*

EvilTwin5344d ago (Edited 5344d ago )

Feeling "insulted" while playing Galaxy?

What, playing some of the best platformer level designs yet created is..."insulting"?

A lombax and a robot with outlandish weapons out to save the universe versus a plumber in space...she's actually trying to call one of these "mature"?

They're videogames. Incredibly good ones that have fun with the genre and medium they're on.

She can go read Tolstoy for her fix of "adult" entertainment. Or she can realize she makes a living playing games.

mikeslemonade5344d ago

I think Morgan is more sexy than Olivia Munn. They both got bodys but Morgan's face is way more appealing than Munn's.

HDgamer5344d ago

Well Mike she does have strong male features in her face, maybe thats what you like.

Smacktard5344d ago

Morgan's comment is everything that's wrong with today's gamers. People used to play video games for fun, and now it seems people play them for "HURR GUNZ I'M MATURE" No surprise, either, she's a GURL GAMURR

Not that you could tell when looking at her gigantic manjaw.

starvinbull5344d ago

Both are excellent, who cares?

FiftyFourPointTwo5344d ago

I agree with your posts Valay. SMG and R&C are both fun to play.

@Morgan Webb = Disgaree(1) from me.

RememberThe3575344d ago

She is saying the Ratchet games are aimed at a more mature audience then Mario. That is fact. Weather you feel like a kid when your playing Mario or not is an individual thing.

She seemed to be saying that for the more mature person Ratchet is a better fit. That does not mean that the game is not silly or fun, it just means that the context and dialog are more mature, which is true.

There really is no grounds here to get as butt hurt as you guys are getting. She said what she said bluntly, since when did gamers care about being politically correct?

Tony P5344d ago

I think it's definitely more aimed at kids, but it's not y'know, insulting to an adult mind. Not anymore than any other simplistic title out there anyway.

On a completely unrelated note, how does anyone claim to be a mature fan while insulting another person superficially, N4G users? I guess this is why mainstream thinks gaming is only for kids. You guys surely fit the bill with comments like those.

darthv725344d ago

i can say i enjoy mario as well as r&c games. I grew up on mario/sonic and my kids are doing the same. I dont feel insulted to play a mario game no matter how new (galaxy) or old (super mario bros). There is fun to be had by all ages.

NoBias5344d ago (Edited 5344d ago )

When even a SOLID Mario game get's hated on.

I miss the good old days... Fanboy haters make me sick. You're turning your backs on the plumber we grew up with?!

StanLatMarveldotCom5344d ago (Edited 5344d ago )

Morgan has some nice tits even if they are a bit lopsided but in this case she doesn't know tit. Mario Galaxy is not for kids. It's a game for everyone and I'm not embarrassed having played the sh*t out of it and still consider it one of the best games this gen.

EvilTwin5344d ago

RememberThe357 -- She implied being "insulted" by playing Mario Galaxy from an adult's perspective. That's an argument on intellectual maturity.

R&C is as "adult" as a movie like Star Wars. And Mario has never been about the story. It's about the gameplay and always has been. As an "adult gamer," I can say Galaxy had some of the best level design and gameplay this gen.

She probably didn't mean for what she said to come out the way it did. But it's kinda pointless to be arguing that the intergalactic lomax is more mature than the space plumber.

heroicjanitor5344d ago

"plumber we grew up with" kind of says it all doesn't it? Not that I agree with her. I can see where she's coming from though, mario has a very simplistic plot where you have to save the princess again, but whether you feel embarrassed to play it is individual, as RememberThe357 said.

sikbeta5344d ago

I don't know about mario, but Ratchet is a HERO XD

n4f5344d ago

people talk sh!t and they dont even know what they are talking about.
video game now is too mainstream.

asdr3wsfas5344d ago

"I agree with Morgan Webb cause she's hot."

Morgan Webb has a man jaw, man shoulders, and man height.

She has a degree in rhetoric. The idea of her being sexy for liking guy things fails when you look at this video while considering it. How to build an ultimate gaming pc:

http://forums.techgage.com/...

This thread tore it apart and I want to assist them. As you read realize that you can build a better *gaming* PC for under 1k but not wasting money on stupid parts.

As the original poster noted DDR3 ram doesn't even work in that motherboard. The ram doesn't have to superfast for gaming and expensive ram is ONLY worth it for overclocking or tweaking ram timings, which they don't even mention (1t or 2t or cas timings are the only ones you need to worry about). Otherwise the max RAM speed is determined by the busspeed of the motherboard - the only reason people get RAM that fast is to handle the speed increase when they up the front side bus speed, which the ram speed is a multiple of. This ram costs 700 dollars and at most would add a couple FPS in gaming. Then they picked midrange graphics cards they could have used that money on that would have let them run insane resolutions with no slowdown. It is possibly the stupidest building advice I've ever seen and shows a total ignorance of price/performance and what matters in a gaming pc.

You can skimp on the cpu in a gaming pc with a good graphics card, talking about the cpu being "fast enough" to handle crysis is a joke seeing as you can skimp low on that part and compensate with the gpu. In fact you don't want the fastest cpu if that takes money from the gfx card, and in this case they chose two medium range GFX cards instead of a high end on and wasted money on the good processor that matters little in comparison.

She spends more time maxing sexual innuendo about "sticking parts in" the excellent case than discussing the cooling. It is a good case but stock fans suck and if you want good fans you buy Silverstone or Vantec. Former has high CFM air output and the latter is very quite. In fact you can skimp on a case like this if you're not overclocking and just get an ok one. On top of that the case sucks for that purpose and the P180 demolishes it in every way. All to the detriment of the gfx card.

The motherboard is again wasted money if you aren't overclocking it. High end motherboards are MADE to be overclocked - they contain BIOS options that allow you to do it and aren't always present on other board and are much more stable at higher speeds. This motherboard is made to be overclocked and sold for this purpose. You can buy rock solid motherboards with enough expansion ports and features for cheap if you don't overclock and the speed difference in models is typically 1-2fps. More money taken away from the gfx card, which makes huge differences in power.

That power supply is absurdly overpowered with those GFX cards. Total waste of money given that the gfx cards in SLI leech a large chunk of energy. That power supply is for two high end gfx cards running in SLI and several hard drives more and overclocking, during which you increase voltage for stability at higher speeds. The good PSUs are made for supplying this voltage with maxed out specs.

3rd part heatsinks are completely unnecessary without overclocking unless you want silence. If you want improvements wipe the thermal glue off the stock heatsink with alcohol and replace with arctic silver of your preference - costs 5 dollars for a lifetime tube. A waste of money that does nothing compared to gfx cards.

Lastly, someone on that forum posted on g4 asking why they recommended RAM that doesn't run on that board. They deleted the topic.

ape0075344d ago

smg is without a doubt one of greatest games in this gen no damn doubt but some places just feels so kiddish imo,like when rosalina tells those little things a story,the way it tells the story,the music in that room is obviously for 5 year-old or at the toy galaxy but it's an amazing game and a true gem nonetheless

I think WII just made nintendo kiddier,mario kart wii feels more kiddy than its past games every character just yelling "WIIIIII",baby mario,baby luigi,"wiiiiii",even wiluigi became gay,on a single race you are gonna hear"wiiiiiiii" 100+ times

what is that,the core gameplay is amazing,don't spoil it nintendo

Sevir045344d ago

it's really a silent gameplay, and very very kid friendly, the universe as awhole and the naritive mario follows, Is always, a plumber goes after a kidnapped princess from her magical kingdom., thats very fairyale and aimed at children.

ratchet on the other hand, is a total departure, yes it may sport a cartoony artsyle, but thats like saying a gory Anime with hentai is for kids just because it's not like action... Ratchets narritive is filled with dark undertones, and it's dialog is far more mature. i have never seen profanity in any Mario Game ever released. while in rachet every iteration has some sort of profane word that makes it totally geared for a more mature audience than say the 5-10 year olds that moms and dads are buying nintendo and mario for.

So she's right in that Ratchet is a far more mature game in it's narritive tone and dialog than mario is, the Great thing about this is though is that It's fun for both those games. but I'm sure some 40 year old guy who rarily plays video games, if he were to pick up Ratchet and start shooting the sh!t out of things and then be asked to play mario galaxy and listen to it's fairytale story i'm sure he'd stick with ratchet for the fact that Guns are more precieved as adult. and he may feel a bit insulting. so she's right. most of you, grew up with mario so you have a soft spot. as gamers, but you also have matured which is why you also find enjoyment in the ratchet franchise as well. so Morgan is right. you gotta think about what she said before you all jump all over her. there is some merit behind what she's saying. eveing if it doesn't nessessarily applies to you.

raztad5344d ago

No offense to the kids, but I would NEVER play any Mario, it's like playing Pokemon. You just CANT do that in front of any other adult. Olivia is a hot girl she knows how hot girls think, you have a very low probability of score with someone bragging about playing Mario.
