Re: What Constitues A "Great Review"?

theblackdragon

what constitutes a 'great' review? copious amounts of four-letter words. it's part of the reason I love the AVGN so much. :3

lol. seriously, though, i look for reviews that cover things i'm worried about with each individual game, which may be gameplay mechanics (as in 'did they fix blah-blah-blah from the last one?'), plot/story, length/complexity, or other things that may have piqued my interest from the trailer or the hype surrounding it. i never rely on one single review, though -- if something is actually a problem, it'll show up in more than one review; otherwise, it could be that the one dude that had a problem with blah-blah-blah was just having an off day, or they just hate games with whatever-it-was in it.

Re: The apocalypse of NL?

theblackdragon

wow, morbid thread. o_O

i've seen websites come and seen them go... usually it's because the people running it decide to give it up and then it falls into ruin under new management, or worse yet, the people running it decide they don't want to pay for hosting and bandwidth anymore, so they shut it all down. i'd expect to see that kind of thing happen long before this place were to be left and abandoned outright with no management present. :3

between DKC2 and DoReMi, I'd go for DKC2 every time. DoReMi is nice, but DKC2 is much more fun and has more to do IMO.

Part of me wants to drink for the occasional partying.

it's your choice, man. go with your gut... if you don't think you're ready to dive into it when your birthday hits, don't push yourself to do it just because your friends are. if they're really your friends, they'll understand your reasons for not choosing to imbibe along with them. :3

that said, those friends who are more experienced with alcohol may be able to recommend some lower alcohol-content drinks so you can enjoy your first buzz, if you decide you're interested in giving it a try after all.

Re: RUMOR: Wii price drop

theblackdragon

chill, Eugene. I'm pretty sure you're right, which is why I posted that -- i'm broke after paying bills and buying Mini Ninjas, so the chances of me buying a second Wii (other than as a replacement if my current one explodes or is infiltrated by an army of centipedes that gum up the drive or something) are zip to nil at the moment anyway. it would certainly be nice if Nintendo were to do that [allow us to link Wii Shop accounts between systems on the same local network] for us, but i won't be holding my breath.

i definitely agree that I wouldn't be interested in buying a second Wii at all unless Nintendo came up with a way for me to hook their Wii Shops together so that i could have all my VC/WW games on both systems.

I read through the Do You Drink thread and I only found one offensive post by the anti-drunk crowd. Perhaps I'm mistaken, but it seems to me that the thread was locked because of the over-defensiveness and overreaction of the people who do drink and get drunk in response to those who don't.

the 'do you smoke' thread was worse. there's been a lot of threads lately between smoking, drinking, Wii/DS homebrew, and other things where I've been seeing people fling around some pretty negative stuff and completely ignore the idea of being excellent to one another (in terms of homebrew, even though we're not supposed to discuss it anymore, i was putting forth the fact that not all people who hack their Wiis choose to also pirate games). with my prior post to this thread, i was trying to nip that kind of thing in the bud because i'm tired of seeing it happen.

the bottom line is that if you don't have anything to contribute to the discussion other than 'getting drunk is bullshit', 'being drunk is stupid' or, according to your example, 'buying collectors edition games is stupid', why even bother to comment?

Re: What new bundles should Nintendo use with the Wii?

theblackdragon

considering the Wii at the moment only comes with one wiimote, if Nintendo were to go with any of these bundles, they'd probably end up raising the price, which could be a turn-off for consumers who don't care about WSR. that aside, i could see #2 happening, though they would have to raise the price of the bundle even more to cover the included M+es.

and also considering that the Wii has not been sold at a loss yet and even with the PS3's price-cut, it's still cheaper, I doubt Nintendo would be willing to cut the regular price. if they can still make money off of it, they'll milk it for all it's worth, just like any other company would.
