Do you hear that? It’s the echo of the market crash that almost killed gaming back when everyone and their dog was making shitty Atari games and they buried tens of thousands of copies of ET in mass graves.

Somehow I don’t think what this generation needs is 10 consoles to choose from. [conspiracy theory]Maybe it’s a false flag operation from PC giants like Valve and nVidia to devalue the console market, crash it, and pull people back into PC gaming so instead of needing a new GPU every 8-12 years, they start needing one every 3 years again… [/conspiracy theory]

    To clarify… The no. 1 seller isn’t the only success in the console wars. For instance, the DS and PSP were both successful, viable, profitable systems even if the DS won out for total sales (when I last saw…) However, making the big assumption that all these new Android consoles actually draw enough of the market to them, there’s a theoretical point where instead of a million consoles sold by each company (just a sample, not total sales lol), there’s 100k here, 100k there, maybe 50k for …

    I loved all the Mario Bros games, before they were even “super”, but 64 killed it for me. It was insufferable. 3D platformers are an awful idea. That’s one reason there’s such a return to 2D platformers now. I’ve tried some later Marios like Galaxy too, but… it’s just a chore.

    That’s why I didn’t get a WiiU and sadly can’t play Splatoon… They dropped the Wii so fast and hard it was still on shelves (they’d just launched a refresh!) when they killed all the online features. I mean, if its shelf life turns it into such a rental, then just lend me the hardware for free or fee and I’ll pay to use the software. I’m not buying it outright for a quick fling.

  • Virtual Reality: “Come Explore Edo Japan!”:
    I’m so curious why Ooishi there has a black eye…

  • Virtual Reality: “Come Explore Edo Japan!”:
    Yeah… Granzella(?) had a nice Edo village with games and everything. Run around fighting oni with your cheap starter shinai etc.

  • Urban Legend in Limbo Trailer Introduces Inaba:
    As I understand it: Kaguya calls her Inaba, and maybe Tewi and any other bunny girl the same. Udongein or Udonge is her most popular name, but is just a pet name Eirin uses. Reisen is her only real name… which of course makes it confusing later when Reisen shows up. I’m guessing Rift isn’t a bit familiar with Touhou characters, saw the usual “Reisen Udongein Inaba” and went “ok, Japanese name order would make the last word her given name…”
