[quote]Whats everybody's favorite gun type? [/quote] Tentatek Splattershot and Roller. I like the Sloshers too, but they are situational, and I only pull them out when a couple of different maps are in play. I want to unlock the Gatling gun and better Blasters...I like those as well....

[quote]for better or worse, and fanboys don't want to admit it, but Christopher Nolan was the absolutely worst thing that happened to the DCEU. He was the best and worst thing that could happen to the DC Movies as a general film group as well. The tone of the Dark Knight trilogy is what gave...

re: Star Wars actor John Boyega wonders why there aren't notable black characters in fantasy - Freauxzen
[quote]The overwhelming whiteness of fantasy and sci fi isn't a new topic. It was a big topic of conversation in geek circles in the 80s as well, it's just now the conversation is going more mainstream. These aren't new complaints. The biggest problem is that so much of fantasy is based on an id...

[quote]And I feel they owe their hardcore fans so much more than the effort they put out. If you paint a picture of how they view their fanbase based on how they operate, it's pretty insulting. Like, I still can't get over the gall it took to slap the "Metroid Prime" name to that 3DS game. Or the bu...

re: Guys, we need to talk about Nintendo's voice chat app - Freauxzen
[quote]I think the answer is Nintendo needs to start thinking big picture, because all of this seems like a work around to the limitations the switch had at design. They created this phenomenon with Splatoon....and it's MP. MP that is team based from what I gather. Teams "generally" like to communic...

re: Guys, we need to talk about Nintendo's voice chat app - Freauxzen
[quote]The big problem I see is that Nintendo is pigeon-hole'ing the experience I can have with them in such a big way.

[quote]1) This is joke? [/quote] ? This is precisely why they keep selling games and systems. People decide to put up with their weird decisions. This isn't like Xbox/Sony where I can go to the other platform and get largely a similar experience shunning the company who made dumb moves. You ca...

[quote]I really love how you fanboys justify this garbage. Nintendo has two of the more popular MP games out there, and it's crazy they still can't come up with a decent chat solution.[/quote] A couple of things: 1) I think typically those who prefer Nintendo games over other styles of games w...

[quote]There's a lot of speculation that Nintendo really doesn't want to offer a VC option, wanting to maintain the family friendly experience of their consoles, but why don't you leave that in the hands of your consumers. Maybe realize that we are smart enough to protect ourselves. [/quote] It's...

re: Guys, we need to talk about Nintendo's voice chat app - Freauxzen
It's a stupid, stupid decision and setup. But it isn't surprising from a Japanese company pretty much focused on the Japanese market first. I hear that the Japanese market are not VC-centric like the American market, so maybe there's a difference? It still sucks, but again, what else are pe...
