#Steam May Be Losing Me: Bait and Switch #NintendoSwitch #RCRDX #Bayonetta3 #RS2 #Gungeon #NeoGeo #MonolithSoftware

Gungeon is Entered, A SaGa is Romanced a Second Time, I am Rampaging Retro…..with all that, Neo Geo Classics and it’s own in house games, it’s Team Ups with Monolith and it’s Bayonetta 3 promise. Just add a game card with Party Hard 1 and 2 on it.
It’s like the best of Steam and Nintendo with a painfully bad X-Boxish Controller, with the Start (+) and Select (-), Home and Picture Buttons in the worse place and right analog stick on too low.
Man I took so many pictures with the intent of hitting select, hit home seeking start (+). Yes, the Pro Controller, the Joy Paddles are too small.
Oh if it just got an Amazon Prime player.
The Switch has a great OS, best ever on a game system, although wouldn’t mind smaller icons. It’s got most of what I want to play, some I rebought despite having it on Steam and Retro City because it went hard copy.
Yes it’s better than the nightmare (after buying the Pro Stick on the side) I thought it would be.
Although still could use some Street Pass and more sequels, less DLC. Also realization by the market, people will end up buying and not buying due to time, 1 player games will Triumph if the system lasts long enough. But multi-player will suffer more from a deluge of games entering the market.
Which may not do Nintendo favors on the online service area.

If You Don't Have #LANoire It's Not To Late... #NintendoSwitch

It’s a relatively well put together story (sure looks a little disjointed while asking questions, not sure bad cop is understood in pre-Miranda era.).
It ends, I mean what goes on with the main character looks so typical you wouldn’t be sure of the ending. The cases are nice not cleaned up in the name of “Family Friendly,” only shame is the video update doesn’t work with it, and it doesn’t auto tag the game when images are posted. Also no fast travel is a bitch even with vehicles.


Another little annoyance is they aren’t really attempting any visual artistry in the sense that characters are a series of character actors given a cartoonish filter.
Also may have been nice to play in Black and White.
It isn’t stunning, and some character movement can be awkward (in other words nothing changed in that area from first release).
It will be worth playing to get to that Hanger, and I don’t want to spoil that.
It is more True Crime than Noir, and that doesn’t kill it, and many people may like the idea of paying it more now that this is made clear.

It’s more worth the money I spent on that then Super Mario Odyssey.

*You need 14 internal or mSD card space for extra downloaded material, so you know, for me it was annoying nothing in any sales material said this.

The Full Size Photo

What a Hilarious Collector’s Edition. Only annoying thing is the Government’s highway robbery at the post office, but that’s NAFTA for you. Only Individuals and small outfits pay.
It’s nice to see a real booklet in a game case again, VBlank.

Steam Direct: Lack of Improvement, Backfire.... #steampowered #steam #greenlight

Now in the deluge of single syllable or just symbol based posts, there is a larger and larger outrage on the Steam Direct announcement comments over said Greenlight replacement.

Why Videos Can Be Sold For Consoles #Nintendo #WiiU #NintendoSwitch #PS4 #XBox

Some times the issue is playback, the other is it’s a game machine.
Nintendo itself claimed (calling it’s first US incarnations, “Entertainment Systems”) that it’s a gaming system. Fair, but really if you distribute old tv and films you know that your DVD and Blue Ray interfaces are filled with frilly nonsense and introduction.
Basically you can build that for any game medium if you have an SDK, all the menus and shit are basically like game UIs now.
So there has never been a reason on the console end why a game could never be played on a console, but distribution is.
It never took video playback as a native function. Ask distributors to do this, not console makers.
