  • NickBasile posted a message in the forum topic Did you pick anything up during Black Friday?. on the Games Discussion board

    I actually never get games new -- the cost even on Black Friday will still be $40+ typically. I can usually find games 6 months-2 years after release for $30 or less (obviously there are exceptions). ...

  • NickBasile posted a message in the forum topic What is your Android brand?. on the Off-Topic Discussion board

    I have the Samsung Galaxy S9 and I love it. I used to have the HTC phones and I loved them as much if not more but I got this one free. In between this and my previous HTC I got an LG Stylo and was no...

    Thank you for explaining -- I will be more careful. What is the time limit before a thread may no longer be bumped? (sorry for all the questions)

    Bumping means you resurrect an old thread that hasn't been up top of the forum for a long time, that's bumping an old thread means. You hit post comment, the thread goes to the top of the forum

    Thank you for the warning regarding old thread comments. What is a "bump"?
  • NickBasile posted a message in the forum topic What's So Great About Assassin's Creed Odyssey, and Why Change Is Important [Analysis]. on the Games Discussion board

    I was not a fan of it either -- far too forgiving. On the hardest mode, I'd hide in bushes, get people's attention, and stealth kill entire camps. If I alerted someone, I'd gallop away and come back s...

    @Macutchi: I remember that haha good reference. I lol'd during that part. Too bad we haven't seem a new Splinter Cell for a while :(

    Good cliches -- unpredictable twists, brave and humble protagonists, strong takeaway messages, fast travelNot good cliches -- final bosses having more than one form after you "defeat" them, grinding, ...

  • NickBasile posted a message on the post Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 Review - Gotta Go Fast.

    Respectfully, I would be surprised if many are playing the game for the plot. Anyway, seems like a good family fun game for the Switch to complement Mario Party and other similar Nintendo options of ...

    @dante7804: I agree man -- same thing with Mario Kart. I can't believe that game got such good reviews.

    @ives74: Dude not trying to tempt you, but Mario Odyssey is SO good -- hopefully you play it some day, great game that I feel was mildly overshadowed by the release of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

  • NickBasile posted a message on the post Nintendo Switch Lite: A New Model That Can't Connect To TVs.

    Not a perfect product by any means but I somewhat dig this. I own a Switch happily, but this is a nice option with a few minor improvements as well as some (obvious) shortcomings sacrificed for the p...

  • NickBasile posted a message on the post Street Fighter Is Promoting The Cops And It Doesn't Make Sense.

    I mean even if we're taking the fictitious popular characters to promote cops seriously, it is a game of martial arts more so along the lines of sport. Yeah there is some Shadow Law stuff in there bu...

  • NickBasile posted a message on the post Stranger Things Season 3 Review: Summer Vacation To Remember.

    This threw me off -- I thought there was a Stranger Things videogame for a minute. I'm not sure that people go to Gamespot for their reviews of TV shows or movies, but more power to them I guess.
