The biggest problem in games down is simply functionality, they don't work, it's not about art or any of those other things.

It's press this button to do this, and you press a button and it does that.

That is literally the core of Nintendos 900 million video games sold or whatever, and the entire video game industry, it's that it works, pure and simple. It's not all those other things although they can be sorta cool, just can it be something that works.

If it comes in a box and you put a CD in, are you able to, effectively, play the actual game? It's stuff like that which is at the heart of so many problems in modern gaming. Because 97% of the time, it simply, does, not, work.

Oh uh gaming news

Yeah well basically gamestop has sucked and always sucked and I literally got like 2 games from them ever, and one of them didn't have the game in it.

Everything else has been like Toys R Us or maybe it was EB Games or any number of other, much better things.

Those fuckers in Texas and are just greedy shits to be honest.

Sounds more like the store managers or other employees were overstepping their boundries. Maybe. That Kotaku article is just poorly written in general. Why do people keep taking them seriously when Kotaku doesn't even take their own articles seriously?

Its the end of the road folks. All those WiiWare titles will soon be dust in the wind, while everything that got a second life on the VC is about to be lost to the ages all over again.

Keep circulating those tapes.

Well, the SNES classic launched today, and all can say is screw you preorder poachers! I got mine at Toys R US.

Even though most people have probably either already heard or (more than likely) don't really care... I feel like I have an obligation to mention that The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 has been confirmed for a Western release early next year.

The gameplay of the first one was pretty meh, enough so that I didn't bother getting the PS4 version. But I really liked the story and characters (duh), so I'll probably get this one and hope the new cast resonates with me even half as much as Metallia did.

Well apparently this is happening. Looks like Capcom is ready to unseal the Megacan after nearly 6 years. Jack In! Megaman.OG!

(And thank god they're moving away from fake retro again. 10 proved that they only had enough in the E-Tank for one NES style MM game.)

Probably not.

Paragon is closing down April 26th. Goodbye to a game that consistantly entertained me for 5 straight months...and probably two more on top of that, because I don't let go that easily...

Necroing? For great something or other....

Yep. Somebody's under the illusion that everything Cavia did was an underappreciated gem like NieR 1. That, or poor XSeeD's so hard up for cash right now that they're willing to bring out this kind of dreck just to keep the office lights on.

You are talking about the same company that is localizing a Senran Kagura molestation simulator, so...

As well as the, up until recently, handler of all things Falcom including Trails of Cold Steel. Given how much losing Ys VIII to NISA has hurt them as well as casting doubt on further dealings with Falcom, they're probably casing every vending machine's change return and turned over every sofa cushion within a 50 mile radius by now.

Not that this wasn't a problem before NISA's dickmove. Case in point, the Akiba'sTrip series and pretty much every other SK game. It can't all be ponies, rainbows and Stregas.

Probably not.

Mega Man 2 was reason I spent monies on other mega man games. With the exception of MM Legends I was often left underwhelmed.
