Re: Overwatch

No, turrets should only be placed in-between engagements, ideally switching between different locations in order to set up your next ambush. Look at it this way: any time you spend building / repairing turrets during a fight is time you don't spend either attacking the enemy or protecting yourself. ...

Re: All things Fire Emblem

Yes, Flabyo. I understand very well that it all comes down to calculated financial risk and that Nintendo aren't just trolling and spiting their fans for kicks. Money's everything. The point about constitutive elements still apply, however. And it's only natural that those who have kept any given se...

Re: All things Fire Emblem

Oh, it's definitely worth buying if you enjoy classic FE. Just be aware that the map/encounter design is the low point of the game and set your expectations accordingly. The art style is also really nice, more grounded and less opulent than in Awakening or Fates, although that's more a matter of tas...

Re: All things Fire Emblem

Okay, I've found two more. This one explores the pros and cons of the randomized elements in FE and how/if they're doing more harm than good: http://thephilosogamer.blogspot.de/2015/02/side-quest-5-probability-in-fire-emblem.html That one addresses the topic of "constitutive elements", and how conce...

Re: E3 2017 - Conference times and general chat

To be fair, a simple VC release wouldn't be the end of the world for me, even though I'd prefer an HD remaster if given the choice. The game still looks great and has a built-in widescreen mode. It's not just nostalgia talking btw, I've played it as recently as yesterday.

Re: E3 2017 - Conference times and general chat

Don't get me wrong, Wipeout is great in its own right. Fantastic presentation and all. But F-Zero's depth and responsiveness is on another level. Have you not played GX? That's a shame, but the GameCube was hardly the most popular console of its day. A port would certainly make this gem available to...

Re: Overwatch

Ana's hitbox is indeed really generous when scoped, so you're not imagining things! And of course, there is the thing about your targets usually not trying to dodge your shots. Usually. :P Symmetra is great on Assault Defense. I love playing as her and setting up some nice TPs and Shield Generators,...

Re: E3 2017 - Conference times and general chat

I like Sonic Transformed as much as the next guy, but you'd really trust a western developer with this kind of arcadey, immensely high skill ceiling IP? Not trying to get all political or to rub anyone the wrong way, but I've never seen games of the pedigree of GX come out of anywhere other than Jap...

Re: E3 2017 - Conference times and general chat

...Who would be developing this "new F-Zero" of yours? A recreated Amusement Vision with a proper budget? Then I'd very much like to have that, please. But I have a nagging suspicion that Nintendo knows they wouldn't be able to top GX if developed internally, which is why the series has been dormant...

Re: E3 2017 - Conference times and general chat

I mean, I operate under the assumption that even if a new F-Zero were to ever be released, it just couldn't match let alone surpass GX. So with that out of the way, I certainly would like to see Nintendo give the series some much needed attention! Hard to believe that GX is already 14 years old... H...

Re: Overwatch

The issue I have with queueing up with large (3+) groups is that you're significantly more likely to be matched up against highly experienced 5- or 6-stacks. Groups of 2 or 3 are a good middle ground. I just make sure to be ready to communicate with my teammates when solo queueing. Proper communicat...

Re: Overwatch

How come this thread's such a ghost town? Have you all given up on the game? I'm still playing this regularly, despite the usual multiplayer nonsense you're bound to run into from time to time. It's a fantastic feeling when everything clicks and your team is coordinating properly. Definitely more of...

Can't wait to witness the inevitable wave of hardcore Splatoon fans going camping or holding conference calls in trains and airplanes with their unlimited-battery-life-smartphones and magic reliable high speed portable internet. Such clarity of vision, Nintendo. Truly leading the market.

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Have they even listed one clear advantage of doing all this as opposed to just plugging the mic directly in the console???

Never mind that not everyone has a smartphone, even among video game enthusiasts.
