    The old games are a fun action romp through Greek mythology. I too grew up believing that they were shallow gore games, but when I actually went through the first last year, I was surprised by the amo...

    R.I.P.So sad to see someone pass away so young. I'm sure he's happy up there and I'll be praying for his family and loved ones.

    I'm not behind this at all. Either port the game or don't, but holding it hostage behind the online service is just scummy practice, especially if you only get to keep it for a limited time.

    Sonic Mania is a super fun and replayable platformer. Perfect for mobile play.

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic Games to get?. on the Nintendo Switch board

    If Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate plays like 3 Ultimate (and it does from what I hear), I'd recommend that as well. That game is slowly sucking my life away and I'm loving it! It's basically the ...

    I can't speak for the Pro Controller, but I can say the Joy-Cons work perfectly fine for me in different types of games. I personally don't feel the need to get a Pro at all.

    Now that I'm working a new full-time job, I don't have nearly as much time to sit and play console games as I used to. So I decided to regulate console gaming for Fridays and the weekend, and try out ...

    Thanks, guys! I guess I'm off to watch a walkthrough of the first game so I can get some context for these choices! Or maybe I can snag the first game off the summer Steam sales and play through it be...

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic Released today, any impressions?. on the Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire board

    Not to hijack the thread, but I know this is a direct sequel to the first game and the first doesn't seem to be coming to Switch. So would I be fine without playing the first or should I just forget a...

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic Online Service Details. on the Nintendo Switch board

    Honestly, the thought of paying for online in general makes me cringe, but Nintendo's is so cheap that I just might go for it if they put out enough interesting multiplayer games. If not, no big loss ...

    I haven't played a lot of games on my Switch (curse you backlog), but I'd say Sonic Mania and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe are great choices.Mario Kart 8 is the best playing Mario Kart and has a surprisingly b...

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic Buying, renting, trading in. How do you go about it all?. on the General Discussion board

    I keep pretty much all of my games, since I find myself going back to older games when I'm in the mood. I'll only sell games when I know there's no chance of me going back.

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic This question again: Do you buy console games digitally or retail?. on the General Discussion board

    I do both (digital has awesome sales), but given a choice, I'll pick retail every time. Love the box art and the feeling of a game in my hands.

    I have absolutely no desire to buy a new console right now. Considering that "next-gen" has become a synonym for "slightly prettier" instead of "better games," I'll stick with what I have. My backlog'...

    I can't say I really care. The last Call of Duty I seriously tried to play was Modern Warfare on the Wii, and I fell off of it pretty quickly. I just feel that there are too many better shooters out ...

    I mean, you don't HAVE to play anything. Generally, if you're done with a game, you're done with it. If you wanna drop it for God of War, go ahead. Ubisoft's feelings won't be hurt, they already have ...
