    Metroid Prime Trilogy REPLAY

    3-5 years have passed since I last replayed the Trilogy and now with some free time around the holiday season, I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to get my Metroid fix. I'll be playing it on Wii w/ the superior controls through component cables on a CRT TV. I've already played it...

    New games are too cheap and it's plaguing the medium

    I firmly believe that if games were say $80 (just an arbitrary price), developers would take more risks and express themselves more freely. Ultimately leading to better games. The medium would greatly improve, potentially passing PS2 / SNES levels and entering a new golden age. There would be...

    Sonic Mania featuring blast processing - Official Thread

    Downloaded this game right before leaving the house this morning and I'm at a loss for words. In terms of Sonic games, this is as good as it gets. The attention to all of the little details is much appreciated. There are crt, sharp and soft, filters for the purists. I'm personally using the CRT...

    Upgarding PC, Need CPU Help

    As the title states, I'm upgrading my Alienware Alpha console. For those not familiar with the Alpha, it's a Steam Box. Meaning that, it's like a gaming laptop in the form of a console. I have to say that I've been extremely satisfied with the purchase. Initially, I purchased the base model...

    Metroid vs. Zelda

    So, @CitizenOfVerona and I had a pretty deep conversation late last night in the chat about which series was better which prompted me to make this thread and see what our community as a whole feels. Both games are very similar to each other. It was said that when Mario was being developed a...

    Metroid

    I think that we need a thread specifically dedicated to Metroid and I'm hoping that this thread will become just that. It's a place for fans of the series to talk Metroid. Aside from that, there's no real guidelines or anything. Just say whatever you want about Metroid. I'll start . . .

    Worst Game Purchase?

    So, I'm sitting here at my desk backing up my PS4 saves and I stumble across the save for MGS: Ground Zeroes which gets me to thinking that game might just be my worst game purchase ever, beating out a used copy of GTA Double Pack on XBOX that I paid $60 for. MGS: GZ is literally a demo disc...

    My Farewell Message

    I've always been a direct person, so I'm gonna get straight to it. I've decided to leave the board for an unknown period of time. I don't want to say forever because I may come back, but I don't see myself coming back in the near future. The decision was pretty hard to make because I've met a...

    What was your favorite gen in gaming?

    ^^^^ and do you think that this current gen (PS4/Wii U/X1) can surpass it? Mine was probably the previous gen. When I was initially debating on this, I figured that I'd go with the PS2/GCN/Xbox gen because I feel like all of those systems had stellar game libraries. However, I soon noticed that...

    My Thoughts on Nintendo's Handling of Wii U

    I'm getting really annoyed, not at this place, but at places like IGN and My Nintendo News, about all of these threads trying to justify what's going on, downplay it, or even point fingers as to whose fault this is. There's no one to point any fingers at aside from the incompetent leadership at...

    [Rumor] Nintendo to Release HD Remakes of 7 N64 Titles

    I'm not sure how credible this is considering that the original source is some website that I've never heard of, but if this were true, it would be fucking awesome. I've always been in support of remakes and I'm glad that Nintendo has been doing them the right way so far. Just imagine if they...

    Wii U VC Games Thread

    Do you guys think the Wii U's selection of Virtual Console games will be as good if not better than Wii's? Do you think that Wii U will retain all of the games and expand or will it drop some titles? Does anyone have any tips or rumors about upcoming VC games? I know that ALttP was either...

    Will Pikmin 3 & Wind Waker HD Have Pro Controller Support?

    Miiverse and New Super Mario Bros. U recently received an update for Pro Controller support and the other games like DK, MK, Smash will all support the pro controller. It seems to me like Nintendo is finally starting to support the Pro Controller as a legit second control option. These are the...
