Does online Chess count?  I think that once you hit 35 and you're still playing video games, you live a sad existence.  No doubt about it once you hit 40yrs old.  I know I'll get flamed for saying that, but I ain't budging so save the drama for your mammas.

Why? It's just a hobby. You could say the same for movies or TV. Why the arbitrary age? Is it not sad when a 34 year old or an 18 year spends hours on end playing videogames?

Sometimes I do think that the amount of time I spend posting on a religious forum does, in fact, give me a sad existence. It'd probably be happier (and less monotonous) if I played more video games.

I really like it. The combat is pretty realistic (as far as fireball throwing dragon fighting can be anyways), the world is big, but kind of hard to get around, the monsters are tough (but not Dark Souls tough) and they story is ok (its a little...Japaneesey......). All in all, a good solid 7.5 or 8. A good game, not a great one.

In all honesty, this is just till Guild Wars 2 comes out Smiley

Nintendo's Initial E3 presentation for the Wii U. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UD1_st1cO04&feature=g-all-lik













In summary: more social networking stuff I don't really care about, more casual gaming *pukes*, samey looking graphics (though that trailer with Link and the spider looks pretty smexy), interesting looking new control features (kind of excited about that), hilarious little movie about a third of the way through (Right, Mr. Non-Specific Action Figure?)

All in all, it was alright. I guess I'll buy one.

Oh, I'm certainly not against simple graphics (I'll take good gameplay and story over graphics any day if I have to choose). In fact, simple graphics make me pleasantly nostalgic.

It's just disappointing that Nintendo isn't rising to the current industry standard for resolution for seemingly no good reason at all. It's turning developers away from a company that hasn't had a pleasant history with them as it is.

I'd like to take a bit of a straw poll. How many Pokemon fans here wish there was a main series Pokemon game (not a spinoff like Mystery Dungeon) where instead of turn-based combat, you could directly control your Pokemon?

How many want the ability to carry more than six Pokemon at a time?

Finally, how many wish Pokemon could have more than four moves at a time?

Just curious.

The first one would be nice, the second one I hadn't really thought about, but I agree, and the third one: DEFINITELY!

Anyways, I really wish Sega would introduce another awesome system...it's a shame they stopped their console design and production.

Yeah, but a modern game would need to come on like five of them that you'd have to switch out for another every five screens (assuming that the retention time after a cartridge is taken out could be lengthened), wouldn't it?

Yeah, but a modern game would need to come on like five of them that you'd have to switch out for another every five screens (assuming that the retention time after a cartridge is taken out could be lengthened), wouldn't it?
you always could adapt the type of technology we have for flash drives

i have saw 64 gig flash drives out there, as compared to a dual layer blu ray at 50gig

It is? I thought developers were saying it isn't up to snuff compared to the Xbox and PS3.
Where in the world did you hear that? Yeah it's native 1080p. Thank God.
Justin, I think. It's somewhere in this thread.
I'm going to beat him up.

I also wish that cartridges would come back.
Why?

ROM cartridges allow for near-instant load times and use less of the processing power of the console, and they are hardier (though disks are becoming  more difficult to damage, it seems).

You beat me to it.  Whenever I bring up my fondness for cartridges, everyone seems to think the technology stalled in the 90's.

DL'd a NES emulator for my phone and have been playing Destiny of an Emperor.  It's amazing how after 25 years, I still remember the details of the game.

I've got the Atari app for the iPod Touch. It has 100 games from the 2600.  Grin
