What was your gaming past like? What was your first console? Your first game? When did you really start getting involved in the gaming community? These are just a few questions to think about while talking about our personal gaming history... (more)

I read an interesting article by IGN that I thought would make for a good roundtable. While I hate IGN's bashing of anything Nintendo, I can also see the logic behind the argument. However, is history enough to determine a products future, or are new factors such as the Ambassador Program, the 3DS Virtual Console, and Sony's PS Vita being $80 more enough to evade history. How will Sony respond to all this? How does Apple factor into all of this? is Microsoft smart for staying away from the portable business? Discuss... (more)

Nintendo recently announced that they will be giving away 10 free NES games and 10 free GBA games to 3DS early adopters. They have already announced 5 of the NES games and 5 of the GBA games. However, what no one seems to be discussing is, what are the other 10 games? I present to you my guesses for the rest of these games and hope that you will join in with yours. I believe that all these games will be first party so I'm limiting myself to that... (more)

It's roundtable time! I was thinking about game economies today, for whatever reason. So many of them are poorly-balanced. Some to the point where finding additional currency/orbs/whatnot means almost nothing (if you can even hold them in the first place). Most recent Zelda games are somewhat guilty of this, as with Twilight Princess's endless treasure chests of fail (Phantom Hourglass added an infinite amount of ship tchotchkes to combat this, but it wasn't the most elegant solution - ditto for the Malo Mart, armor-that-used-money-as-fuel, and literal bridge-that-you-had-to-buy in TP). Others to the point where it feels like you have to grind forever to get that spiffy new item/ability. (Read: Dawn of SORROW.) In fact, I would say most games kind of screw up the economy aspect in some major way. And you could even say that the main appeal of CoDs and Diablos are their economies... maybe?.. (more)

In the last five years there have been four Mario platformers, across the DS and Wii. New Super Mario Bros. (2006), Super Mario Galaxy (2007), New Super Mario Bros. Wii (2009), Super Mario Galaxy 2 (2010). Super Mario 3DS could be the fifth Mario game in five years, if it releases this year... (more)

And let's throw in Zangeki No Reginleiv, Earth Seeker, Disaster, and, what the hell, Takt of Magic. What are your genuine predictions for sales for each title, assuming a modest ad campaign and decent reviews?.. (more)

Nintendo made their strategy pretty clear RE: the 3DS. Make some room for third-parties at launch, let them get some sales and bring in a new audience, etc. I'm not sure that Nintendogs underwhelming performance was a part of that strategy, but STILL... (more)

As of Tuesday, June 7th at 10:30 AM Pacific, all Press Conferences of 2011's Electronic Entertainment Expo are over. Of course, we'll be seeing tons of game demos and interviews starting there, and continuing all through Wednesday and Thursday, but we already know all the major announcements, reveals and games we can look forward to. So, with that information in mind, join me in my E3 2011 Recap, in which I'll be giving my personal thoughts of the show, entailing my in-depth analysis of all three major Press Conferences (sorry for discriminating, Ubisoft and EA, it's just that... well, yes, you are less important), and ending off with a conclusion saying who won and why. I hope you enjoy!.. (more)

I got to thinking about this earlier. There really isn't a universally accepted way to save progress in games- you'd think that would be the first thing that developers nowadays could get right. Is it even necessary to have a ton of different ways to save?.. (more)

Much like every other entertainment medium in the planet, every video game save for a few exceptions I could probably count with my two hands, has a consensus attached to it - everyone either loves it, hates it, or something in between. That's because gamers usually expect something specific out of video games, and products either deliver or they don't. However, at the end of the day, we're all different, and sooner or later we're all bound to not follow the general consensus at some point, and video games are no exception... (more)
