• BigSocrates posted a message in the forum topic Multiple Sources: Super Mario Remakes Coming to Switch in 2020. on the General Discussion board

    I would buy all of these, though not if each is $60. I wonder if they're going to do a full remake of Mario 64 or just do an upscale and HDification. I think a full remake in the Odyssey engine wou...

    @purpleshyguy: I tend to try to give games a chance because I have a history of giving up too soon. I've played deeper into Doom Eternal now (just started the 4th level so not super deep, but since t...

  • BigSocrates posted a message in the forum topic Going from Doom 2016 to Doom Eternal. on the General Discussion board

    I haven't gotten far at all in Doom Eternal yet (been mostly playing Animal Crossing) but I'd go further than this. I finished Doom 2016 on Ultra Violence and really loved it. There were some encou...

  • BigSocrates posted a message in the forum topic Why would people cheat after 2 days?. on the Animal Crossing: New Horizons board

    People cheat at everything.Also I find it weird to say that people are playing Animal Crossing, of all games, wrong. I personally haven't cheated and my museum is scheduled to open tomorrow and I ha...

  • BigSocrates posted a message in the forum topic Is Shadow Complex responsible for the Metroidvania boom?. on the Shadow Complex board

    @cikame: I agree with most of this, except SOTN was released in March 1997, which was squarely in the middle of the Playstation era, not the tail end. By comparison Final Fantasy VII was released in ...

  • BigSocrates posted a message in the forum topic Is Shadow Complex responsible for the Metroidvania boom?. on the Shadow Complex board

    I don't think so. I think it was more part of the vanguard of something that was going to happen rather than the 'cause' of the boom. There have been booms in a lot of older genres over the last 10...

  • BigSocrates posted a message in the forum topic Which are you getting - Doom or Animal Crossing?. on the Doom Eternal board

    In for both.Animal Crossing is not the kind of game I'll binge (maybe the first couple days just learning everything) but I want to get started on my town ASAP. I really liked Doom 2016 and am excit...

    @shiftygism: To elaborate on what I said about it not being a sport so there being no need to simulate it; first of all I was only really talking about my personal tastes. If other people want a simu...

  • BigSocrates posted a message in the forum topic What's your favorite wrestling game?. on the Wrestling board

    I liked the Aki games on N64 a lot, and probably spent the most time with them, but my favorite is WWE All Stars.Wrestling isn't a sport so there's no reason to simulate it. That game doesn't have a...

    Have you been capturing fairies? They can help a lot if you're struggling and dying, though obviously so can potent foods (though you need to be somewhat selective in what you cook to avoid having a...

    They ranked all the fighters. They're done. Everything else that hasn't been ranked yet is not actually a fighting game. More seriously, there have been breaks in the show before and I'm sure it w...

    @stephen_von_cloud: Final Fight Streetwise came out a year after The Warriors. To say it did not learn the lessons of that game is...putting it mildly. I think that another potential way for the Fina...
