    How do you feel about Link and Zelda appearing in an Indie game?

    This is absolutely, very very cool. Indie Developers get tons of exposure and sales because it uses Nintendo IP Nintendo gets an exclusive game using their IP, without using a cent of development cost or resources on their part(and likely make royalties as well) Fans get more games set in...

    Switch 2019 better than 2018?

    They are running out of Wii U ports as well. I expect 2019 and 2020 to be quite strong considering that we have all of those titles. And, the developers of Breath of the Wild, Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, Mariokart/ARMS, would have plenty of time to make games for them. I even think that a new...

    Breath of the Wild Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has sold over 10 million copies, is the best selling Zelda Game

    With the financial meeting today, we learned an excellent tidbit. https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/finance/software/index.html The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has sold over 8.48 Million units on the Switch. Which, wooo boy, that is an accomplishment within itself. However, the story...

    What Other Games Should be Remade for 3DS?

    Would you like to see the dark side of Hyrule?

    You are absolutely wrong. Zelda was based on Western Style adventure stories. Hell, the name Zelda actually came from Zelda Fitzgerald, wife of a very famous American author.

    A 2D Zelda Switch

    So, now that I see a bright and shiny new board for a Zelda Switch, I see people are very excited for the successor to BotW. However, I think we should hold the reins back just a bit. At the very most optimistic timeframe, we won’t see a successor until at least 2020. But I think we may see...

    Nintendo want to support Switch for 7-10 years

    Just like how the Vita stomped down the 3DS to the ground right? Or even just like how Sony and Microsoft are stomping down Nintendo so they have bad sales, despite the Nintendo Switch already selling over 14 million units. Whatever Sony and Microsoft do, they will not be able to compete with...

    What DS/3DS Games Should Be Ported to Switch?

    They literally just took and uprezzed the textures, and lighting also, in modern gaming, is not hard to implement. Let's take for example, Wind Waker HD. 3DS and GameCube have a very, very similar power level, so it is apt for discussion. Wind Waker HD only took 6 months, and it was a complete...

    What DS/3DS Games Should Be Ported to Switch?

    Particularly for 3DS, it does not take much work at all to get them to HD. Most developers actually use High Quality Models and textures, and then down scales them for the 3DS. For example, when Ocarina of Time 3D is uprezzed via an emulator: *Starts at 2:30 It looks pretty good, and this is...

    Best Video Game Soundtrack

    Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Still has the best soundtrack of all time.

    Ever bought a console just for one game?

    In what way is the Switch version remotely the worse version? It actually is objectively better than the Wii U version(I say this as someone who didn’t have a Switch until May, and played BotW all the way through on Wii U first). The Switch version has: A higher resolution(900p versus 720p) A...

    What DS/3DS Games Should Be Ported to Switch?

    What if these ports didn’t take away any resources at all from the original games? If anything, remakes and ports fund new original experiences. For example, The World Ends With You could potentially get a brand new sequel if the Switch remake does well enough. And ports take minimal effort to...

    What DS/3DS Games Should Be Ported to Switch?

    I would love to see a good deal of 3DS games come to Switch: First off, A Link Between Worlds will probably come, and it will be total hotness. Nintendo has reached out to journalists and actually asked them to add an addendum to their reviews. Kid Icarus Uprising, with both Gyro and twin...

    The Nintendo Direct News And Discussion Thread

    You and Spirit do not at all sum up "how most Nintendo fans feel". Not one bit. If you are looking for proof, just look on Twitter. This is quite like saying that Doom or Skyrim wouldn't sell on the Switch..... Which they did. They all sold very well. Because Switch didn't sell its console to...

    Wii Switched them up for U

    People didn't buy Wii U games because the Wii U was a badly misunderstood console with terrible marketing and an identity crisis. People buy Wii U Switch games because the Switch solves a fundamental problems a lot of busy gamers have, and all titles have the extra function of portability. They...

    The Nintendo Direct News And Discussion Thread

    Regarding Dark Souls, this is something that a lot of fans are clamoring for this, and it is going to sell really well. And this is the very first time you can play Dark Souls on a portable console, which gives it even more extra incentive. As for the direct itself. It was okay! Nintendo has...

    2018 gaming wishlist

    1: Octopath Traveller Demo was absolutely amazing, I want this game in my veins now. 2: Smash Switch It is Smash, on the go, without the pretty crappy 3DS version. It is perfect for multiplayer, and multiplayer on the go. 3. A Multiplayer 2D Mario(or something akin to 3D World). You know, this...

    Will ARMS be an annual IP?

    Nope, not at all. Nintendo really doesn't do annual games, with the exception of Pokemon. They may have games in the same franchise come out, but they would be vastly different gaming styles and what have you. Nah, the main reason ARMS is ending adding new characters is simply that, making new...

    Star Fox Switch

    I could see it happening, but not for a while. I really think that the SNES Classic was a gauge of reception for Star Fox in general, and it was well received to get a brand new(old) Star Fox game. I think it will happen eventually. Whether or not it will actually be good..... Well.... We will...

    Breath of the Wild OMG I'm bored of BOTW.

    I don't know :P It's okay to not like the game, but to say the game is just about collecting Korok Seeds(of which the game was designed to not collect them all, only about 200 is really necessary), is a fallacy. There is: Finding 120(Now 136) Shrines that each have their own puzzles and...

    Equality in video games (Not sure what to call this topic honestly)

    Diversity is important in many ways, not really on a social justice angle, but just in character variety. Breath of the Wild actually does this perfectly, in which the 3 human races, the Gerudo, the Sheikah, and the Hylians look like and analogous to people of Caucasian, Middle Eastern, and...

    Breath of the Wild [Interview] The Future Content of BotW and/or Zelda

    If you could read Japanese, you would see the same thing from the pages. It's the same book called the "Master Book" that detailed very early enemy designs that took more of a lovecraftian style All source gaming is also a refutable translator. They do not make anything up, merely translate...

    Breath of the Wild [Interview] The Future Content of BotW and/or Zelda

    Actually it is. It was translated from the most recent Legend of Zelda art book, that showed off lost designs, development, and what's next. Source Gaming merely translated it.

    Should The Legend of Zelda Come to an End?

    So by appealing to "the masses", strictly means not "appealing towards you" in this place? We can go over the many reasons over how you are objectively wrong that BotW is mediocre and the fallacy that it "hasn't done anything new". However, it's clear that BotW doesn't appeal to you. That's...

    Should The Legend of Zelda Come to an End?

    If it was just a game of the year show, perhaps I would agree. However. BotW is one of the highest rated games of all time. By developers in the industry, within reviewers and with users. It is a lengthy feature, however, you have one of the developers from Bioshock and Rez really explain...

    Gaming hopes wishlist

    Your wish is already in development, and it's demo was fantastic. As for me.... Most of my wishes have been taken care of. I'm pretty good to be honest. If there was one thing I would like, it would be Smash on Switch. But really, all my gaming needs have been met astoundingly this year.

    The last greats

    Zelda: BotW is inevitably great, with its unique perspective of applying traditional game design to open world games. It's not for everyone, however, it oozes quality throughout the entire adventure. Mario: Odyssey, that's an easy one. Final Fantasy: FFXll, fight me. Pokemon: Black and White...

    Nintendo Xenoblade 2 - Worth A Switch?

    If you loved Xenoblade for the Wii, you will love Xenoblade 2. 2 takes everything that Xenoblade did, but better. There is a lot better pacing, better character involvement throughout the plot, better QoL changes(doing sidequests doesn't make you OP automatically), a way better combat system...

    Video game sequels you're worried about

    Hate to break it you, but XC2 will be linear. Just like the first game. Being linear is what made the first game so damn good. It still has the wide open fields and emphasis on exploration, but it will be linear and plot driven, just like the original. Also, the artstyle may not be for you, but...

    Video game sequels you're worried about

    That is: if they even make an Elder Scrolls 6. You need to buy Skyrim again at least 3 more times to get Elder Scrolls 6. As for me. I have many worries for Final Fantasy 7 remastered. Not only have we not heard a peep of the game, it seems to have a pretty troubled development ala FFXV. I...

    What's the first Playstation game you played?

    Still absolutely one of my favorite games of all time. Especially Spyro Year of the Dragon. I loved this series so much, and it was one of my first as well. It's a shame to see where it is today. The PS1 was my very first Videogame console, and this was one of my very first games, and boy did...

    Your first lootbox

    What's with Loot Boxes?

    That is not true. Online games are already being paid through the $60 a year subscription to PSN or XBOX Live. So players are already paying for that "subscription" to online services.

    What's with Loot Boxes?

    So, one of the most popular modern gaming series released last year, in May 2016. That was Overwatch, and it provided players with completely cosmetic digital goodies, of which you can either level up in Overwatch, or buy lootboxes. Overwatch was a $40 game.... But Overwatch completely blitzed...

    Best Year in Gaming

    2017 by a long shot I think. The Release of a console that would start a renaissance of Nintendo, one which would give a lot of people more time to play games. Plus there were the games themselves, which everyone seemingly was firing on all cylinders(except for you M$, you did good with...

    If you could only play one console, which will it be?

    If you chose the Wii however, you would get all of that, + Wii Virtual Console + Wii games. I would probably choose the Wii. The backwards compatibility with the GameCube. Yup, that's completely what I would go with due to sheer enormous amount of games, plus the back catalog of every major...

    Stardew Valley Switch

    Stardew Valley, unlike a lot of other farming sims games, has a lot more to do than farming. For example, there's even a light dungeon crawler tucked away inside of the game. Combat doesn't have an incredible amount of depth, but it still is there. Plus there are things such as fishing...

    Xbox vs PS4 vs Switch

    The PS4 and Switch are on equal footing in my opinion. The PS4 has an already established, and a really solid library of first and third party games. However, current games are currently going through the wringer with "AAA", $60 games with microtransactions. Now, this isn't for every game...

    Best RPG Game?

    Chrono Trigger hands down. It is one of the only games that I can say is perfectly paced. It's battle system is completely unique, and the story, characterization, and settings are on cast. The sheer amount of variety that occurs throughout this is insane, plus this game lets you try and beat...

    Wii U question - urgent as I'm damn stressed

    What's a Wii U? In all seriousness however. I think if you are going to spend $300 on a Wii U, you might as well get a switch in my opinion. More Wii U games are likely going to get ported, and it's a better investment for third party support, first party support, ect.

    Nintendo Switch News and Discussion Thread

    Wolfenstein 2 has not released yet bro. Also, I have a feeling DOOM will do well on the console. Because, it means that you can take DOOM on the go. That has a ton of leeway within it right away, as seen with current game sales of other third party games.
