ZeroCorpse:
Why are there still books? Hasn't reading evolved since the 5th century?


And books in the 5th century actually looked better, like they were hand penned with care. Now a days, it's all mass produced crap, and even the alphabet is smaller. :(

thisiszombocom: Britney Spear's Speculum: Yes, this totally is worth the 349.99 + 69.99 for the game.

why are there still side scroller games? seriously. hasnt video game play advanced since 1984?


Why are there still FPS games? Jeez... I played my first FPS in the mid-80s on my Commodore 64, and the first one was developed in the late 1970s.
Why are there still RPGs? Hasn't video game play advanced since the mid 1970s?
Why are there still puzzle games? Hasn't video game play advanced since the late 1960s?

styckx: Doc Daneeka: I see the Nintendo-haters are out in force in this thread.

As for the WiiU, I'm not going to pick it up in the launch window. But I'm certain I'll get one by the time it gets its Zelda.

I hate
anyone that still uses the word "hater" in 2013.. Even Juggalos don't use that anymore.


By that way, that makes you a hater-hater.

And that ladies and gentlemen is Nintendos entire marketing campaign summed up in one sentence.


Their marketing strategy is having a stable of renowned and iconic gaming franchises for which they put out new installments that are of consistently high quality, usually among the best titles on their console, which will in turn induce people to buy said console?

You're right, that's quite a marketing scam they have running there. Putting out great games in beloved franchises that people want to buy. But you can see right through them and their trickery.

Not to take a side in this, but "hater" in that context, "BLANK-hater", isn't dated. It's normal, everyday English that has been in use since the word "hate" was developed.

Even in 1880, if one hates the theatre, they're a theatre-hater, and if one loves the theatre, they're a theatre-lover.

Now, you'd have a point if he just said "I see all the haters are out in force" because "hater" by itself is a fairly recent development in English (the earliest I heard it was the mid-1980s, but it seemed to get pretty popular in the 90s). However, he didn't say "haters", he said "Nintendo-haters", which is a perfectly cromulent use of a hyphenated word string. Complaining about people saying "subject-hater" is kind of like complaining if someone says "fan" instead of root word "fanatic".

And if you're going to complain about "hater" in any sense, then I'd better goddamn never see you use the word "cosplay" in a sentence.

Because 2D games can focus on design and mechanics over adding another layer of texture to some rocks? Some of the best 2D games came out in the 90's, and there have been amazing ones released in just the last year. You don't have to like them, but that comment is retarded.

OriginalGamer: Wii.Tard: styckx: I agree.. Nintendo has been dead since the N64.. Ever since then they went full Apple and EA sports.. The ut-most minimal hardware upgrades, then repackage the the same shiat in a new case w/ one over priced feature.

In other words, Apple.

Only Apple as seen by farkers. iPhone 5 benchmarks completely show that it's the fatest smartphone, hardly an "minimal hardware upgrade". But please, feel free to ignore reality.


Oh yeah well The Jerk Store called and they're running out of you!
