    @Roto13 Fans be crazy. Like, I admit some games had features I liked more than others (I got a lot of mileage out of the mining mini game in Gen 4 even though I never got to try the social aspects of the Underground), but Pokémon is constantly evolving. Like, Gen 1 had tons of issues when it was new, and will likely come off as really slow and bad to anyone who started with the Gen 3 or later. Gen 2 holds up better, but it's still like caveman paintings compared to the Renaissance of later games.

    @Godots17thCup Wario is wonderful and I miss the WarioWare series and the quality of the pre-DS era of Wario platformers.

    Posted in USgamer Community Question: Who's Your Favorite Game or Game Series Mascot?

  • Avatar for MetManMas MetManMas 5 days ago

    Nintendo's got plenty of great mascots, but one of my favorites has always been the Boo enemies. Simple li'l cartoon ghosts as easy to draw as Kirby, yeah, but that's what makes them great.

    They've been in practically every Mario game since their debut in Super Mario Bros. 3, and have had haunted mansions, kart tracks, party boards/mini games/spaces, various playable appearances, and even a Mario power-up. They also serve as the main antagonistic force for the Luigi's Mansion games.

    Kinda odd to see Pokémon go back to the "third version" well again after Gen 5 gave us an honest-to-Arceus sequel and Gen 6 went straight to Gen 7 after a brief return to Hoenn, but seeing that I haven't played Gen 7 yet I don't mind this too much.

    My (old) 3DS still works but I don't play it as much as I used to, and while I'd like a new 3DS I know my money would be better spent on a Nintendo Switch at this point 'cuz I know it'll be good as gone once the Switch sees a permanent price drop. Heck, they already killed off Miiverse.

    I'm still kind of a VR skeptic, but I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought about buying the Skyrim VR bundle when it's on sale. Even if it ended up being too annoying for me to actually play, it would give me a window into the PS4's indie VR scene.

    Probably just gonna go for a Switch or PC tower, though. Playing Skyrim portably and playing Skyrim (and also Morrowind, Oblivion, lots of stuff) with the real mod scene interest me more than a gimmick that'll probably make me throw up, and I already know how things will go down if I play Skyrim in VR.

    @InexactQuotient Yeah, definitely. Dunno exactly how they're handling the monsters in a death-free SOMA (Do they disappear except when the plot needs them? Are they there but they can only K.O. you?) but there were things in that game a lot more horrifying than them.

    @chaoticBeat I would totally buy Dark Souls 1 on the Switch, but I'd also like to have the game in some form on PS4. The 360 version's playable on Xbone, but I'm surprised this game still hasn't received a current gen remaster.

    We'll probably never see Demon's Souls again though, not even on PS Now, and that makes me sad. It's a PS3 exclusive, so that already makes it a challenge to port due to the differing architecture between the PS3 and anything that's not a PS3. But the bigger problem is the inevitable licensing issues due to how it was published by different companies in different countries. Sony Computer Entertainment published it in Japan, but Atlus handled the US release, and Bandai Namco did the same for Europe.

    This is a smart move for Frictional Games. I don't mind the cyborg boogeymen trying to kill you, but they felt a lot more like a vestigial element in SOMA than they did in Amnesia. Like, they're one of the reasons all the shit got fucked, but the game's still perfectly horrifying without them being a major threat to the player.

    Might give the game another run whenever the update hits PS4.Edited 6 days ago by Unknown

    @humblebison Yeah, the only Shadow of War that saw release in September was the iOS/Android title, which is a completely different experience.

    Let's not forget that Middle Earth: Shadow of War and Assassin's Creed Origins are both on more platforms than Super Mario Odyssey, not to mention platforms that have been around for longer than the Nintendo Switch, platforms people are more likely to already own. Super Mario Odyssey scoring third place, without counting digital sales, is pretty damn impressive under those conditions.
