Re: More woe for nintendo

Nobody is buying a new system for an incremental update of Mario Kart. Every Nintendo system, handheld and home, has had Mario Kart since it started.

I think they'll have to accept that the hardware probably won't sell better than GC levels (price cut wouldn't do a mirracle either, just like it didn't for GC) and focus on...

Re: XB1 Owners / Collectors Thread

Crimson Dragon is rubbish - biggest disappointment ever. I love Panzer Dragoon, but this is just boring and dull with loads of in-game purchases.

Re: A period of time when you didn't own a console?

When the 3DO, CDi and all that s**t was out, I basically stopped buying new games and just played SNES and went Skateboarding. I was proper down on games for a few years, all that junk FMV rubbish. Thank god for Sega Saturn, PS1 and N64.

Re: Modern Ridge Racers

6 + 7 are different games - 7 is kind of a 6.5, different campaign mechanics, some new courses and some of the graphic effects are different too.

It doesn't matter how much money you splash into marketing spend if the console doesn't have what people want to buy - marketing is not the answer, you can't market something that no-one wants and make them want it when it's such a high cost product. First, you need something people actually want (i...
