They're making Splatoon, a pretty crazy-looking third-person shooter:

There was also The Wonderful 101 which wasn't made directly by Nintendo but is a new Nintendo IP regardless.
Also that Codename Steam game for 3DS coming this year too.

they also have 2 games in development as well, provisionally titled project Guard and project Giant robot.

also secured Devils third as an exclusive.

perhaps but he really does keep derailing threads with his PC master race rubbish.
Can you point to one where he's been the instigator then? I can't readily think of any.

All of them. The only reason you can't see it is because you agree with every single nonsense thing he says and that is also the reason you are trying to defend him. In fact the main differences between you both is that you only post PC master race twaddle every third or fourth post instead of every single post.

No, You should. Its people who insist on having to try and prove something they like as the best in every conversation to try and valdate their own viewpoint is the one with inferiority issues.

My personal viewpoint is that PCs are awful as a manin gaming platform, luckily I am happy to acknowledgde that people have diffrent tastes and I can accept some people prefer PCs.

Only difference is I am comfortable enough with my choice to not squeeze in anti-PC posts from out of nowhere. I will however respond to little children who have confidence issues and try and bash console gaming to somehow make themselves feel better.

As somebody mentioned earlier I'll be looking forward to the next Gears game, at which point I'll have to get an Xbox One.

Have they announced a new Gears Of War game?
I only played number 2 but it was great fun in co-op.
Maybe I should give GOW 3 a try.

Since when have I ever said anything like that at all?

I can't speak for outdated_gamer, whose main crime still appears to be feeding the trolls, but I'd think anyone who's paid the slightest attention to what I've posted on here ought to be able to figure out that I enjoy both console and PC games and that any division between the two is largely artificial.

Its annoying, and its massive hypocrisy to boot.

There is a thread about PSN being down over christmas, now this had the potential to spoil a lot of peoples christmas, especially kids.

I don't own a PS4 but I dont need to, to feel annoyed on their behalf. Yet what do we get within a few posts. A PC owner claiming that This is proof that everyone should move to PC gaming. Then Outdated gamer proclaiming that he feels sorry for all those console gamers while he is quite happily playing on Steam.

There was 0 need for it, it was pathetic and uncalled for. Not to mention Hypocrisy of the highest order. To mention Steam after all the eraly problems that had. With the half life 2 debacle, PC owners were up in arms and proclaiming steam as the worst thing to happen to PC gfaming and signaled the death of the PC as a gaming platform. Yeah so a bit of selective history there then, lets just pretend there has never been any issues on PC while mocking issues with PSN. Like I said, Pathetic.

should we mention the likes of Sim City, Diablo III etc. No I thought not.

To be fair to Matt_B he comments on a lot of systems, both positively and negatively.
He has never struck me as an elitist and shouldn't be labelled one just because he likes PC games.

Outdated_gamer has derailed threads recently with his whole PC is better thing.
Whether he is just trying to be funny or not he needs to stop. Talk about the pros and cons of the threads subject instead.

Matt_B did say that IK+ was better on Atari ST than Amiga though, for which he should be flamed to hell and back! :twisted:

It's fairly obvious to most people... but Matt can't see it...

In all fairness Matt is nowhere near as bad as you-know-who. Not even close but the fact that he can't see you-know-who's twaddle is very telling.

Talking about gaming on the PC I wonder when SteamOS is coming out? I've got windows 10 installed on a partition at the 'mo but the free preview runs out in April. I was gonna put SteamOS there, but it's all gone a bit quiet on the SteamOS front.
Scott me up beamie!

assuming your not joking, I posted it another thread but shadowrun dragonfall directors cut is an amazing game, its playable on most pc platforms including tablets. hearthstone is also getting great reviews, if you like card games like magic the gathering ,you could try that, its also free.
