Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I agree, there is something in the idea that Nintendo’s output has become more ‘safe’ and focus-tested, although for my money things have improved considerably in this respect since the Wii era.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I agree with everything Eric says, the ‘nuclear whitebread’ was an absurd thing to say, and quite insulting to the millions of people who don’t subscribe to that demographic but who continue to embrace Nintendo’s output.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Nintendo have often made games "for adults". From Animal crossing to, Xenoblade Chronicles to Zelda. May I introduce you to Metroid Prime, F-Zero GX, Wonderful 101, Bayonetta 2, Breath of the Wild... Bit of a silly thing to say. I'm assuming you meant "mature themes" as I've enjoyed Nintendos libra...

Let's just make Tetris the default 'GotY' every year from now on.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Depends upon the mission scenario I think but certainly some of them involve one or both. There are some YouTube vids certainly.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

“As of 2018, the Ace Combat franchise has sold over 14 million copies, making it Bandai Namco's sixth best-selling franchise, behind Tekken, Pac-Man, Gundam, Tales, and Super Robot Wars.” It is really quite popular indeed, it’s just the slightly niche genre and subject matter stops it being a ‘house...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

If you’re assuming they’re on the list why are you adding them to the games to go on the list thread..?

Re: Our next Final Fantasy podcast recording (16.2.19) - Issue 357: Final Fantasy VIII

Of course we will continue to cover JRPGs (in fact we have Persona 5 this year too) just perhaps not a rate of one every other month!

Leah is already campaigning for FFX-2 in 2020 in fact...

I was going to say Pilotwings 64! There are definitely others worth considering though. A few off the top of my head:

Space Station Silicon Valley
Body Harvest
Mischief Makers
