    Nintendo Switch - Official Thread

    I'm happy with that overall idea, so long as they provide the option to play online free. See PS+ on the PS3 for an example. I'm fine with subscriptions, I have plenty, I just want them to be for reasonable things.

    Nintendo Switch - Official Thread

    I might be able to see theMightyME side of things, however, his argument appears to rests on the cost of game development going up. The $20 subscription fee isn't going to support developers, don't kid yourself. Servers are still payed for by the developer/publisher, not Nintendo (unless it is...

    The Unofficial Thread Of Free Games

    Amazon is about to start giving away a collection of games every month to Prime members via Twitch starting March 15th. Not really free per se since you need Prime, but if Amazon Prime is already a set sunk cost like I'm sure it is for many of us than it kinda is. Looks like they are giving...

    The Unofficial Thread Of Free Games

    Over on the IGN PC Forum there is this awesome thread, - The PC Freebies Thread - created and maintained by Alexaras1991 (kudos). I've benefited a ton from the thread and have gotten at least 20 games for free I otherwise would have missed due to it, so I figured I should spread the benefits to...

    I could see EA trying something along those lines, but I can't see PC gamers falling for it. There's a reason we call ourselves the master race *trollface* Though seriously, the beauty of PC gaming is that it isn't a walled garden. There are a lot of different platforms in competition with one...

    Nintendo Switch - Official Thread

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I ended up picking up Splatoon 2, I absolutely love the series and I figure half a year of online play as well as the offline mode is worth the $44 I paid for it. It's really disappointing the singleplayer DLC isn't free though, the base game is going to be...

    Nintendo Switch - Official Thread

    So I finally bought an NS! eBay has a 20% off coupon right now so I managed to pick up it up for $231.99. What games are must haves? I own SMO already as well as the Wii U versions of all the ports. Splatoon 2 is what interests me the most so far (even though I'll only be able to play online...

    Nintendo Switch Sales Super Thread

    It sold out so the scalp purchase was unfortunately necessary if you wanted it. I was just including the Climax Edition's sales last week for the -74% drop. Thanks, it's good to be back on this forum.

    Nindies Highlight Thread

    Thanks for posting this. I haven't been tracking the Nindie scene recently, I'll definitely be looking at this again whenever I finally cave in and get an NS.

    The Stock Market Thread for Great Justice and Profits

    I set up a Roth IRA this month. I'm staying away from single stocks for my IRA and just investing in no transaction-fee mutual funds trying to use the core and satellite approach--I'm trying a bit of everything as long as it has a good strong history, simply trying to diversify as much as...

    I think I'll try to start making a special TNE exclusive monthly Media Create report, I think it'd better fit the size of the community and provide a better overall look at the market. In the meantime here is a copy of my weekly Media Create for this past week (Feb 19 - Feb 25): Numbers are...

    The Great CT - Community Thread

    It's been awhile since I've posted here. How is everyone and everything doing? I've been doing great. Been fairly busy working and doing my hobbies. In terms of gaming I built a new PC (and entire set up) over Black Friday, very happy with it, I'll need to post some pictures of it soon (it's a...

    THE SUPER MEGA E3 PREDICTION COUNTDOWN THREAD

    Pretty average E3 this year so far, but thankfully average is pretty darn good these days. My predictions for tomorrow with Nintendo and their 25 minute spotlight about 2017 games: Mario Odyssey Rabbids + Mario Arms Splatoon 2 Xenoblade 2 (the one 2018 game shown) Fire Emblem Warriors The...

    What this shows is that they need to work on price control mechanisms. In 2013 in Canada total healthcare costs totaled $211 billion with a population of 35.16 million (just 3.98 million less than California currently has) averaging just $5,988 per person. If California can even get close to...

    Nintendo Switch Sales Super Thread

    At launch, yes. However sales (e.g. shipments) in April dropped off a cliff and May is shaping up to be even lower as instead of increasing new shipments they are decreasing them dramatically. True. I have no real idea how these negotiations work, but I have to wonder why Nintendo didn't plan...

    Nintendo Switch Sales Super Thread

    Nintendo needs to get their act together with NS unit production. Being sold out this long without the massive sales to back it up is ridiculous. I have no idea about ARMS popularity in the west, based off available information (such as COMG pre-orders, which provide a very narrow yet useful...

    Nintendo Switch Sales Super Thread

    Some charts: Thinking about replacing the PS4 with the PSP. The PS4 was actually pretty boring in its first year selling worse than the Wii U, but currently the PSP is neck in neck with the NS when you align launches having sold 66,543 in the seventh week (675,449 LTD).

    All The Things You Aren't Supposed to Talk About : Politics, Religion, & Money! && Grammar!!

    Thanks, an interesting read. Subjects of this sort are a challenge to talk about in a truly "scientific" sense. Direct evidence is hard to come by and experiments and the testing of hypotheses are are more or less impossible. The theories discussed are forced to rely primarily on indirect...
