    @bigsocrates oh don't worry, I was never going to defend Nintendo as a business for their practices, I was specifically talking about the current generation of consoles (well, Switch/Xbox One/PS4) for...

  • OSail posted a message in the forum topic The Push and Pull of Nintendo. on the General Discussion board

    @bigsocratesThat's fair, I've introduced and set up the Switch and Xbox One to a fair few people, and the Xbox has always been more of a nightmare (a poor UI even in it's current form, slow loading o...

    @bigsocrates said: @osail: I have no idea what you mean by the Switch being "less confusing." I think it's arguably the most confusing of the consoles, especially since it has two models with radicall...

    The Vita was a niche handheld system that unfortunately but understandably died on it's arse despite it being a lovely bit of hardware with a few nice games and a decent digital library. The Switch is...

  • OSail posted a message in the forum topic Why is the laughing scene so looked down upon?. on the Final Fantasy X board

    The direction of the English language voice acting is pretty poor across all of Final Fantasy X and it's easy to highlight it within that scene. The performance of the voice acting isn't great either,...

  • OSail posted a message in the forum topic I don't know how to define Bowser's Fury (DLC? New Game? Expansion?) but I love it.. on the Super Mario 3D World board

    I just 100%ed Bowser's Fury a few minutes ago and it is a very good 3D platformer, but the flaws do speak to the benefits that 3D World has several years after it's initial release.The free camera ca...

    Yep, played it last year on the Wii U again and it's still the perfect 3D Mario game, way ahead of any of the others including the brilliant Mario 64, it's maybe the best Mario game full stop, beating...

    It's the A-Team thing, where people get killed left and right but it's minor/nothing characters so viewing eyes don't see them as important. It's perspective.Similar reasons why when a close friend di...

    Ignoring the graphic decisions on display in the trailer this is another case of art from a specific time, by a specific person/team, not being able to be re-made in a way which carries the soul of th...

    From the dying embers of arcade racers time, Ridge Racer Type 4 is still something I revisit every year. The best Ridge Racer ever made, and while it may not live up to the standards many have for dee...

  • OSail posted a message on the post Game of the Year 2020: Day Two.

    I think the Final Fantasy 7 Remake soundtrack being dropped is fair, and even if it wasn't, far better arrangements of the pieces (original and re-interpretations over the past 20 years) exist that h...
