That's certainly part of it, but not the whole equation. Another important factor is time and interest. There are wayyy too many games to play, so I need to narrow down what I play. The easiest way to do that is to look what interests me, what I have time for, and what I can afford. I am a collector, but only so far as I collect games that suit my interests. I support Limited Run Games, but will only buy games from them that I actually want. I don't actually hope the NX is bad. I suppose it was added flavour to my point. What I meant to say is that even if the NX turns out to be everything I don't want (i.e region locked with no F-Zero, Metroid etc) it won't matter to me because I simply won't buy it, thus saving me money to buy things I do want that I might skip on since I bought an NX and don't want my gaming budget to balloon. But if the NX does turn out to be what I want for it, then of course I will buy it. What I won't do is dwell on what could have been.
I concur. In a way, I hope that NX is region locked, doesn't release the games I want, is idiotic how it handles details like storage, controllers, etc. That NX turns out to be something I don't care about at all.
It will save me the investment. I know for a fact there will be future PS4 and Vita games I want regardless of whatever the hell happens with NX. If NX turns out to be something I want, then great! but it will be hell on my wallet. If not, then great! I won't buy it.
kinda neat, but the Ouya is way better. That appears to be an NES/SNES emulator in a box. Probably will sell for $60. I guess it will be better than Nintendo's plug n' play, but it doesn't dethrown Ouya. Ouya simply does way more and is more verstile.
1. Operation C - My absolute favorite Contra. Only 5 levels long, but offers stage select, classic gameplay, and combiations of weapons like the Super Spread Gun or the Homing Spread Gun. I love this game even to this day. 2. Hard Corps Uprising - I only discovered it recently, but it's REALLY good. There's an RPG mode that lets you level up and stuff. 3. Super C - Superior to the NES Contra in every way, yet people ignorantly seem to think the original is untouchable. Those people are wrong. 4. Contra Shattered Soldier - PS2 hidden gem. It's hard, but stunning and fun to play. 5. Contra - Perhaps one of the only games in history that the inferior console downport is actually superior to the arcade original. Contra didn't work especially well tate. 6. Contra Re;Birth - Not as good as Gradius Rebirth, but it's still a good Wii romp. Wish it was on PSN though. 7. Contra 3 - I never played Contra 3 back in the day so I don't have the attachment to it some do, but it's still a whole lot of fun. Mode 7 stages are not as bad as people think. 8. Contra Hard Corps - Fuck yeah Megadrive. This game does some amazing things with the hardware. Too bad it's also nearly impossible. 9. Contra 4 - Wayforward does amazing stuff, but I felt it was hampered by the DS, not enhanced. The dual screen design was a mistake. 10. Contra Force - a weird game. It's more like the Taxan GI Joe games than Contra, but it isn't as bad as maybe it's reputation.
Ultimately my interest in NX will depend on accessibility. Will it be region locked? Will it have extremely limited storage? Will it reset the virtual console yet again? Will it offer any sort of backwards compatibility? Will the system offer F-Zero, Metroid and other games I want that Nintendo has been ignoring for over a decade now?
If Nintendo repeats the same mistakes as the WiiU, I will not buy an NX until the system is dirt cheap.
Been playing Pokemon Liquid Crystal for several hours despite Fairy Fencer F being here. The most intensive hacks like Liquid Crystal make officl releases mundane. I'm quite certain that Sun/Moon won't offer half the amount of content. The crazy thing is, I talked to the author and he told me that the game isn't actually even finished. He plans to add three additional islands complete with gym leaders, lengendaries, meet ups with evil teams, and conclude with a Pokemon league challenge against level 100 Pokemon in a natrual progression. The game is long enough and large enough with three regions that your team will reach level 100 without artifical grinding. That has never happened with any of the offical games and I doubt it ever will.
All told, I've put in about 200 hours so far. Liquid Crystal is offically larger than Persona 4 Golden.
How many of you guys have played Hard Corps Uprising on PS3? I said it already, but it totally wasn't on my radar at all until I randomly saw it on a flash sale just a few weeks ago and bought it without knowing anything about it except that it was an anime themed action platformer. Turns out that it's goddamn Contra, and somehow I never heard of it despite it being almost six years old now.
I concur. I have many opinions and tastes that differ from most people, but so what? Some people like Madden or Halo or League of Legends or Mario Kart. I happen to like different games to those. What difference does it make? Ultimately you need to be true to yourself if you want to find happiness. Being offended by others opinions is a lousy way to go through life.
Besides, it doesn't matter what other people think as long as you know the true glory of Totodile.
