  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic How do you use your Switch/SteamDeck?. on the General Discussion board

    I flip flop. I used to bring it on all my commutes, but now that I have a car and a job a couple of minutes away, there's no need. I'll still bring it to work for dinner breaks from time to time. And...

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic How do you approach dialogue choices in narrative games?. on the General Discussion board

    I always go off of what I would do in the character's shoes. I find it makes things much more interesting and affecting for me.

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic So...wanna talk about 3.0+1.0 (NGE Thrice Upon A Time)? Warning: Spoilers abound.. on the Anime board

    I haven't watched it, but as a big fan of how Eva originally ended (End of Evangelion), I'm more than a bit peeved to hear that Shinji is allowed to just wish up a happy ending for everyone.One of my ...

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic did anyone reserve a Steam Deck?. on the General Discussion board

    @cornfed40: @elby: Thanks for the advice, guys. Maybe I'll put down a pre-order for the lowest price. Can't see myself spending more than PS5 money on this, too rich for my blood.Though now I'm hearin...

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic did anyone reserve a Steam Deck?. on the General Discussion board

    @cornfed40: They do say that there will be a general sale though, and they'll let you know when it's available normally if you put it on your wishlist. Is Valve known for having supply problems? I've ...

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic did anyone reserve a Steam Deck?. on the General Discussion board

    I was this close, had it in my cart and everything, but once I calmed down and thought about it rationally, I decided against it. Pre-ordering proves to be more of a fool's errand than not these days,...

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic Yep, the Steam handheld is a thing. on the General Discussion board

    I'm super tempted to pick this up because there are so many AAA and lower games I didn't get to play that I don't have the console for and can't run on my old Mac. Plus the 3DS and Switch have reaffir...

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic What are you playing at the moment?. on the General Discussion board

    Juggling two games right now: Super Mario 3D World on my Switch and Dragon Quest 8 on my phone of all places.Mario is great as always, having a great time running through as Luigi while collecting abs...

    @gundato: I didn't say nobody cares. I said the VAST MAJORITY do not care. Speaking of people thinking everything is a YouTube comment, do you honestly believe Mom buying her teen GTA 6 is pulling out...

    @gundato: Next big thing, remember? If anything, that just proves my point. They're not doing it because "Wow, 60 fps is an innovation I just can't live without!" They're doing it because it's the big...

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic OLED Nintendo Switch Announced. on the Nintendo Switch board

    @gundato: You have WAY more faith in the gaming community than I do. Won't fly? We're freaking famous for letting stuff fly. You wanna talk online multiplayer? How about people still paying a premium ...

    @av_gamer said:@norm9 said: Reading online at all the heart broken people who are describing emotions akin to nintendo shooting their dog is pretty hilarious. How are people disappointed in a company...

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic OLED Nintendo Switch Announced. on the Nintendo Switch board

    @alanmckinnon: Now that I can agree with. The fact that Nintendo hasn't taken the opportunity to fix their dang Joy-Cons is baffling to me. I have a pretty foolproof fix for mine, but they're literall...

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic OLED Nintendo Switch Announced. on the Nintendo Switch board

    @gundato: First off, I hope you aren't expecting the 60fps grace period of next-gen machines to last. Once we exit the cross-gen period and developers start to push the hardware, they'll all go back t...

    @alanmckinnon: You and I had very different BotW experiences lol. The only place I can remember the frame rate tanking is Korok Forest.

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic OLED Nintendo Switch Announced. on the Nintendo Switch board

    @alanmckinnon: The vast majority run just fine for most people. Only enthusiasts are crying about 60 fps for every game they play. Most people do not care. The Switch's sales prove that. As long as th...

    @mindbullet: People have been pushing this nonsense since the day the Switch hit the shelves.If it does exist, great (as long as we don't have the PS4 Pro problem of games running like trash on the or...

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic OLED Nintendo Switch Announced. on the Nintendo Switch board

    So glad we FINALLY have clarification. Now all these nonsense rumors can die and I can look forward to new games without every other comment being "Not buying, waiting for Switch Pro!"It helps that I ...

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic Hot take: Cyberpunk 2077 was not more busted than a number of recent games like Watch Dogs: Legion and Outriders. on the Cyberpunk 2077 board

    I have no dog in the Cyberpunk fight (filed that one under "Stay away!"), but your larger point is precisely why I've stopped pre-ordering games, usually buy them on sale, and only buy them after copi...

  • nicksmi56 posted a message in the forum topic Do you plan on buying a Series X, S, or PS5?. on the General Discussion board

    PS5. It can play the few PS4 games I own, and its library of games interests me far more than Xbox's.
