Have we done this before? Regardless, let's do it again!
How do y'all currently feel about mobile(/tablet) gaming? Do you prefer playing games on a phone to playing on a dedicated handheld? Has the best of iOS impressed you more than the best of the 3DS/Vita/PSP? Is mobile really the place where the most interesting innovations in gaming are happening? Name names.
Bonus Question: Why is the gaming press collectively gaga over this stuff, when they never gave half a shit (collectively) about handhelds? Is pocket space really at such a premium?
edit - Seriously, though, did you read what you posted? I didn't right away come out and say this because I knew you'd annoy me about it, but I think some of these "games" are not about fun but addiction. Skinner box, once again. People play them, they are addicted to them, but they don't know why and they aren't having fun. The comments section of your article is full of them.
I definitely prefer gaming on devices with tactile controls, most of the time I just refuse to use virtual analog sticks and buttons and/or gyro. I definitely prefer the DS/3DS to my Droid RAZR or iPad for gaming.
That said, a friend of mine did talk me into trying Galaxy on Fire 2 and it's really fun so I have been playing that on iPad, and it uses virtual sticks... but I guess there is an exception to every rule.
I think that sentiment is perfectly valid (although I think addiction is too strong a word). I consider it a real victory that I finally got Nathalie to stop playing Farmville. But I don't think that means they're not games.
Anyway, I don't mean to annoy you, so let's just move on.
Yeah, phones cost WAY more than the 3DS. But the argument is that many people are going to buy a phone anyway to use as a phone. Anything else it can do (apps, games, etc) is just gravy. And since he's already going to have a phone, and it has games on it that suit his tastes/budget, then it's the better option.
Nonono. The current NEQ is a *sequel* to the original. Actually no, it's more of a remake.
But to the record!
Old school Neg Worlder's remember fondly the experience quest. I decided to remake it. I actually had this ready long ago, I just wanted to get some more stages going, but I've been pretty busy and thought WTF, it has 10 stages already which isn't a bad start. I'll work on more stages once people need them.
