How have we reached a consensus internet opinion that ports that run better than the original, at 2 to 4 times the resolution, are bad ports.

It's just continuation of the argument from before the reveal that 3D All-Stars cannot exist and anyone claiming to know that it is real is lying. After the reveal it morphed into "it's limited, see there are just 10 copies made haha it's the same as not existing" which morphed into the current "the games are bad" also anyone getting it will just want to sell it but it doesn't matter because no-one will pay anything for it. It's a weird long grudge.

Bloomberg's new article says Nintendo is expected to release more games. But, what stood out was that Nintendo intends to release many games, and is planning to not stop after next year.

They also straight up confirm that the hardware guys are still working on hardware which feels a little unbelievable but it's big if true.

You probably can't even skip cutscenes. I know it still pops up a save dialog box when you get a blue coin, instead of just doing it.

donkey kong country isn't good, it was never good, you were just 12 and it had 3d looking graphics. donkey kong 3 and 64 have worse reputations because the people who seeded the internet's opinions about that era of games were old enough to realise they were playing some real poo poo by then

The only good parts about DK64 were the arcade machines where you could play Jetpack and the final boss where a big tittied chimpanzee cheered you on as you shot a rocket at a lizard man's ingrown toenail.

If I'm not mistaken DK64 has the Donkey Kong arcade game hidden as a bonus, which is notable as one of the very few times the arcade game (not NES version) has been made available

I haven't played it myself but there's a romhack for DK64 that allows you to freely switch between all Kongs without needing to jump into the tag barrels over and over again.

I think this could make the game infinitely better.

I posted a 7 point defense of corporate wage theft because my brain is full of worms.

Waltzing Along posted:

ME2 is among the most overrated games of all time.
ME3 is among the worst games of all time.

I've seen everyone one of those opinions attached to each one of those games at some time or another.

ME1 is extremely RPG heavy and tons of pregen stuff for any exploration missions. Planet travel in the mako(car) loving sucks. Overall pretty good and a ton of world building and lore detail went in to layer the foundation of the series.

ME2 is "Let's do Gears of War, but Sci-Fi" with the typical Bioware touches. DLC was significantly better then the base game, and the main story hit some high points despite some truly questionable design stuff (ex. Subject 0's bra belts, the fawning counselor character)

ME3 is everything to the extreme, this is a BIG DEAL EPIC game with a phenomenal multiplayer game. Got a river of poo poo for a pick 1 of 3 ending options rather then guided by previous player choice. DLC is much better then the base game, expands much more on the ending, and the Citadel DLC is basically a fun celebration of the franchise.

The whole point of the franchise from day 1 was "everything carries over" so even decisions in 1 have some line of text or a returning NPC. It's entirely likely that most people missed 3/4 of the "player choice" content because no one besides crazy people wanted to play all 3 games multiple times for different encounters.

Dragon Age fixed this by setting up a site where you could create a profile of choices in the first 2 games and import that world state into DA:I.

Yes, but the real bullshit is that when you finally beat it and get the banana, you find out that you have to beat it a second time on a harder difficulty to get the Nintendo Coin which you need to beat the game.
