7:52 PMkratos3821Nintendo “thinking backwards since 1996”

7:53 PMkratos3821Nintendo fans “damage controlling since 1996”

7:54 PMjordan thompsonas you were sitting down Nintendo all I could imagine Infront of you was baby versions of Reggie and iwata sucking from pacifiers, playing with blocks and giving dumb looks

7:55 PMTheRiverAnduinsome japanese Switch games have english subtitles because of region free, maybe more developers will include them and only release one version worldwide

7:55 PM13UcubeNintendo doesn’t understand the INTER in internet. they thought we wouldn’t find out

7:57 PM13Ucubein a way, dragon warrior 1 is in 2

7:58 PM13Ucubethank u for answering my question

7:59 PMMax thebirdcagehiv

7:59 PMMax thebirdcagehi

7:59 PMScottyJayManLooks like they’ll be a Megaman collections 2, with 7-10 in it. PS4, xbone and Pc, but no mention on switch or 3DS

8:02 PMMax thebirdcageIs that they replace the lack of imagination with vulgarity

8:02 PMTheRiverAnduinandrew did you play The Twin Snakes on Game Cube?

8:03 PM13UcubeThe reason emulators have a Fast Forward. Silly prologue!

8:05 PMjordan thompsonhe’s a theory what if this was reality, let’s say videogame characters where real and we’re like extreme actors and when not working on games they lived in our society and when there series dies cont.

8:06 PMkratos3821Nintendo “where big aaa 3rd party games has no place”

8:07 PMTheRiverAnduinps1 lacked a z-buffer, what the n64 had that helped the system render 3d better

8:07 PMeathdemonstill better than a system with 40MB carts. j/k I loved my n64

8:08 PMjordan thompsonif the 4ds was a thing “using the 5 sences as a selling factor” who would you promote it ?

8:30 PM13UcubeDid you prefer shadowgate over deja vu, Andrew?

8:30 PMeathdemonits a big deal becouse conflicts in eve take months

8:31 PMkratos3821the rdr ending was too predictable , you can see it coming after a few missions

8:31 PMeathdemonthats part of eve btw. truolling, scamming, steal is a ok so long as you dont hack its do what you want sandbox
