    @RyviusARC: That employee needs better training or should get a new job.

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic New Nintendo 3DS Might Have Double the RAM and VRAM. on the System Wars board

    Had this come two years from now, I'd be okay. Actually, if I hadn't re-bought a 3DS a few days ago (I sold mine earlier in the year for needed cash at the time), I'd be on board as well. The disappoi...

    @speak_low: It launched with the 3DS, so of course it doesn't have the characters that came in the expansions. The 3DS version was well-received. Think I may get it, though I stink at SF4.

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic *New* Nintendo 3DS / LL Announced. on the System Wars board

    I just re-bought a 3DS (Midnight Purple version) a few days ago, and now Nintendo unleashes this? I don't like the move. I'll stay away. But if they start making new Super Mario, Zelda, or Metroid ga...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic Best atmosphere in a game ever?. on the System Wars board

    If I had to pick just one, I'd go with Metroid Prime. Shout out to Zelda: The Windwaker, Resident Evil (mainly 1-4), Super Mario Galaxy (both games), Halo, Last of Us, and Half-Life 2. Oh...and Cave S...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic Favorite Resident Evil?. on the System Wars board

    @delta3074: Good points. However, truth is, Resident Evil has evolved/changed in different ways, especially since 2005. What "feels" like a Resident Evil game probably varies from person to person now...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic Favorite Resident Evil?. on the System Wars board

    @Lulu_Lulu: I just can't agree. Sure, RE4 had a lot of action, and it's what I remember/love it for. But the atmosphere was haunting, and there were more than a few moments of eeriness that rivaled an...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic Favorite Resident Evil?. on the System Wars board

    Resident Evil 4, definitely. It was absolutely perfect--the ideal blending of action and survival horror. Capcom just took it a little too far with the over-the-top action in Resident Evil 5 and Resid...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic SW VOTE: What is the greatest game franchise of all time?. on the System Wars board

    @Ballroompirate: My comment was mainly alluding to 3D Mario games. There have been a total of six of those. As far as 2D Mario...eleven of those, I think--ten if you do not count Yoshi's Island, thoug...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic SW VOTE: What is the greatest game franchise of all time?. on the System Wars board

    Complaining that Mario games are the same because you jump on enemies or "collect" things is like saying Tekken is repetitive because you kick people, Metal Gear solid because you hide behind projecti...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic What is the appeal to Half-Life franchise?. on the System Wars board

    I thought that Half-Life 2 was overrated for a while myself, but another play-through and a bit of reflection on my experience helped me see the light. Others in this thread know more about the game's...

    @Ballroompirate: I don't understand how Mario and Link's clothes are relevant considering the evolutions within those respective series and the video game industry at-large that those franchises have ...

    @charizard1605: Well, it may have been divisive, but it is still critically acclaimed and loved by many. It is a good entry in that regard for the series. I thought it was fantastic. Doesn't mean I wa...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic SW VOTE: What is the greatest game franchise of all time?. on the System Wars board

    @Ballroompirate: Love Zelda, obviously. But think about the world surrounding Mario in his games--all of the amazing, diverse gameplay mechanics in each Super Mario game. Galaxy (and its sequel) shook...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic SW VOTE: What is the greatest game franchise of all time?. on the System Wars board

    @Ballroompirate: Why? Ever since its conception on the NES, nearly each core installment has been a top-notch, Game of the Year contender. And I think it is hands-down the most influential, innovative...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic What is your favorite PlayStation handheld?. on the System Wars board

    I don't game as much as I used to, so I will likely never get a Vita. If I do, it'll be at the end of its life cycle, dirt cheap. I didn't buy a PSP until it was essentially dead. Shame I has to sell ...

    4) Gameboy - Pokemon, Link's Awakening, Oracle series, Tetris, Super Mario Land series...great handheld. It was like having a pocket NES when NES was still cool.3) Nintendo DS - The concept of the DS ...
