    Nintendo Switch Sales Super Thread

    Considering pre-orders were sold out, the Switch is seemingly off to a good start. Let's up Nintendo can keep up the momentum in the coming months. The first year's game line-up alone is pretty awesome looking. Finding the right combination of good games coming each month/quarter and good...

    Heed the call!

    Greetings again, TNE and Merry Switchmas! It has been quite awhile since my last visit here, but it's good to see some familiar faces are still around. I'm not sure if any of you remember me, but I used to be a somewhat active member a few years back. I hope you guys are enjoying your...

    Halo Enthusiast

    Though I've only recently picked up my first Xbox, I've always quite liked the Halo series. The universe and characters were interesting, and the multiplayer was loads of fun. I remember going with my brothers to their friends' house and playing LAN matches in Halo 1 or 2 with some of the other...

    Would you get hyped for a Star Fox: Assault 2?

    I didn't care much Assault's campaign mode, it wasn't bad but it wasn't really great either, but the multiplayer was fantastic. It seems to be the inverse of SF64, which had a great single player mode, but just an okay multiplayer mode. If they did make a new Starfox game, I would really want...

    Getting Ready for Donkey Kong

    I was ecstatic when the DKC series was brought back to life with Returns on Wii, so I'm really looking forward to Tropical Freeze. I love the old Rare games, and Retro has been doing a pretty good job with the series. The game is already pre-ordered and paid off, so now I'm just waiting until...

    Thoughts on suicide?

    ^Listen to this man. I'll just leave this here for now.

    Nintendo Direct Expectations and Wishes

    I completely agree on release dates, or at the very least narrow it down to a quarter or a month. Although I don't think we'll see any price drops. As for games, I think we can definitely expect to hear about DKCTF, Mario Kart 8, Smash, and Bayo 2, possibly even something for X or Yarn Yoshi...

    Wii U / 3DS sales thread

    I'm interested to know why you think this would work. While the system itself does sound incredible, the timing is way off. By 2016, the PS4 and Xbone will be reaching three years old, and should already have incredible libraries to entice most of the gamer demographic to make the jump to eighth...

    Which Games Are You Planning On Purchasing Or Do You Already Have?

    Games I own so far: Nintendo Land Super Mario 3D World NSMBU NSLU WWHD Pikmin 3 W101 Sonic Lost World Batman Arkham City Armored Edition Note: While I don't own them yet, I've already paid for DKC:TF, Shantae Half Genie Hero, and Mighty No. 9, so it's simply a waiting game until they release...

    What age were you when a Nintendo console came out?

    NES (1985) - Wasn't born yet. My family had a NES before I was born, so most of my earliest gaming memories come from games like Super Mario Bros, Duckhunt, and Excitebike. SNES (1991) - I was born the same year as the SNES. My parents got us one for my fifth Christmas, the same year the N64...

    Can PS4 keep this up?

    Given that it's only the first year of what is supposedly going to be a near decade long console war, anything can happen, so I wouldn't count anyone out just yet.

    Perhaps that may be the big surprise at VGX. If not, then hopefully we'll hear about it in an upcoming Direct.

    Wii U / 3DS sales thread

    I don't understand why everyone writes off the N64, and to a lesser extent the GCN, as failures. They were profitable platforms that had a decent amount of market share. There were plenty of failed consoles in the fifth generation, such as the 3DO, Jaguar, Pippin, and arguably even the Saturn...

    Wii U / 3DS sales thread

    A game console is only as good as the games that are made for it. The N64 was a fairly popular system, despite only having sold a fraction of what the PS1 did, and while it didn't have as many games as the PS1, the games it did have were phenomenally good. Many were the best of the generation...
