  • Re: Nintendo Switch (formerly codenamed NX) and mobile gaming

    We found one in our local Target. Purchased immediately. I can't help but feel like Zelda and the form factor transitions alone have entirely changed the way I consume the games.

  • Re: Rent or Rent to Own?

    The only reason we didn't rent was because we could get a mortgage + assumed maintenance on a house that was cheaper than renting. About the only time I can imagine its a good idea.

    Pretty sure America as an Icrontian looks like this...

    A Norwegian Coast Guard member wearing an American Flag after being scared by tornado siren tests?

    Same as prime on all counts.

    Aunt May, tho...

    I'm not going to complain about staring at Marisa Tomei though.

    I think Valve made it pretty clear what good business sense it makes to give a game a decade-long lifespan, and the way they did that was with third-party servers they didn't need to manage and innovative pricing models. Just because EA and Blizzard want to stick with buy-it-and-done games in this genre doesn't mean the market has evaporated.

    I present to you Diablo 2. Released on June 29, 2000 by the same company making Overwatch. Diablo 2 still has servers operating. If Blizzard does one thing it's support successful games for a very long time.
