Friendly critique: FP seems to have adopted the IGN model of posting 20 micro articles on every facet of a new game. It must be a successful model or else why else use it, but it's annoying when you're not interested and it's most of what's there


Pouring one out tonight for Cutie the Elephant


The best trailer Nintendo put out today


So I truly dont understand... Overwatch 2 like fully released, yes? Like it's out and it has just been released in a broken state?


Hoping for GB and GBA games today. I need something new to hang on a drip feed for.


I've started and stopped Paper Mario like 5 times in my life... but this is the first time I realized you're supposed to use your badges. Makes the game a joyous romp. Love that after a while you can't gain any more XP from weak enemies - incredible game


Anyone else a fan of bustin' out the ol' old pen n' paper to keep notes etc. while vidya gaming? Currently unnecessarily mapping out Dry-Dry Desert and generally keeping track of enemy stats in N64 Paper Mario.


Not looking to argue or explain why I'm right and you're wrong, just want to know if anyone else out there did not like the new Dune movie (note: this was my first exposure to anything Dune).


I was digging What Remains of Edith Finch... a Gone Home-style walkin sim... but then I became an owl and I said, "Oh... it's one of these kinds of games!"


If you've ever wondered, "why does Mario Odyssey have motion controls?!", Exhibit A: a small kid at my hospital only knew/had the dexterity to throw Cappy by shaking their Switch. Suddenly my least fav part of Odyssey... was still my least fav part


I'm playing OG Pokémon Snap and the requirements to unlock the next levels are more stringent than I would have imagined. I have to imagine there are kids out there who only ever played the first two levels (and also loved them to death)


Just beat Super Mario Bros 2 (USA) for first time. Thoughts in comments. Spoiler: a pleasant surprise... not quite GOTY every year


Prediction: Just as farming coins in Super Mario Odyssey was a pain before Luigi's Balloon World, some free update for Kirby will come that will give ample Rare Stones for weapon upgrades


Someone just used my BestBuy account (but not my credit card because I don't have it saved to my account) to buy shit... what's the point of that? They used their own credit card and shipped it somewhere in Oklahoma. I can only assume it's a stolen card


The Nintendo Switch Sports Soccer is Rocket League for dummies and I love it


Was just compiling a list of my favorite games per year for as far back as I can remember (so 1997 onwards). It's incredible to me that like... 80% of the games I have played, I played between the ages of 13 and 17. Before and after that it's slim picking


There ain't enough platinum coins to furnish my stupid Switch icon-collecting addiction


Did anyone else find Squid Game to be... ok?


As always with NSO, I don't have real complaints - just questions. Today they put up Earthworm Jim 2, but not the original Earthworm Jim... why?


March has almost come and gone and no new Scott the Woz which can only mean the "Nintendo Switch - 5 years in" must be at least 8 hours long


BestBuy worker today holding my preordered copy of Kirby: "I can't give this to you. It comes out tomorrow. I'd get in trouble." Me: "Is there someone here who could give me it and not get in trouble?" No early Kirby :(


For anyone on the fence about the MK8 DX DLC, GameXplain has a Let's play online for all the new tracks - it looks awesome. Link in comments


Toying with getting Animal Crossing: New Horizons now that the game finally seems "done." But how do holidays work now? Do they happen as expected? If I change the clock to Christmas will it be Christmas?
