Whilst browsing a list of eShop games for under 10 cents apiece the other day, I came to something of a revelation: time is worth more than money when it comes to leisure. It's like with streaming services: in a way, you have THOUSANDS of free movies and TV shows, but who's ever going to watch them all? Why should I buy ten games for a dollar when I'm already sitting on a backlog of titles that still haven't been played...that I know I like...and won't cost me anything extra to play them now!?

I love my Switch. It's an amazing system with one of the fullest, finest libraries in Nintendo history, and it's only halfway through its lifecycle so far! I've got an extensive collection of modern AAA titles like Mario Odyssey, high-quality third-party gems like Dragon Quest XI and Octopath Traveler, indie darlings like Cuphead, and legacy compilations like Mega Man Zero and Collection of Mana, ensuring that there'll be hours and hours of gameplay to enjoy for decades to come...

Hockey - NHL ' 94 (SNES) of course. I feel like in games before this game (and even many made after it) scoring in hockey games felt semi-arbitrary. Just get close and shoot and hope for the best. But this game made you earn it! One-timers, dekes, wrap-a-rounds, you name it. So much control!.. (more)

I was thinking a bit about how nervous I get when great franchises get handed off to new devs. A lot of times it doesn't seem to end well... (more)

When the Switch was announced, plenty of Nintendo gamers felt we'd be seeing the best of both worlds--handheld and console--on a single system. And while the Switch's library is fantastic, it doesn't quite have the quantity of games that would match the combined libraries of the past systems. Now, part of that may be because every game is being developed for a more powerful, modern-day system, but the other factor in the equation are Nintendo's mobile games... (more)

Saw this exact thread happening over on another forum, and figured I wanted to get the opinions of the Negative World members. What are some of your favorite games (or least favorite?) of the past decade? I tried to list mine as a "Top 10" but you don't have to if you don't want to... (more)

I have a sort of ongoing list of games in my head that I want to play through but for one reason or another never have. I'm sure a lot of you are similar... (more)

Based on their output, which company is your favorite developer for each Nintendo system, besides Nintendo themselves? Here are my picks: (more)

Retro is kind of a beautiful mess of a black box of a company. Nintendo's take on a homegrown 'mature' Western studio started as a semi-reincarnation of Iguana Entertainment, a studio which saw some success with publisher Acclaim Entertainment on many Nintendo (and other) platforms. They had some decent games, but it's kind of a weird fit, right? So they pitched some generic-ish concepts, including that car combat game, some football sim, and the sprawling vapoRPG, Raven Blade! A bit of mismanagement, strippers and cocaine on Nintendo's dime, yada yada, and Big Daddy N had to step in for some tough love. They cleaned the place up, cancelled pretty much EVERYTHING, and repurposed one of their concepts into Metroid Prime, a project doomed for failure if there ever was one. And THEN Nintendo upended the tea table again (maybe several times) during development!.. (more)
