    the best game of the last 10 years

    Honestly worth Bying a Wii U for this game. And Smash Bros at the end of the Year and Then Zelda soon after.....

    I think that Nintendo games are hyped enough but they are not in your face as much, every year a new cod is at E3 and your forced to pay for it to keep getting the same multiplayer experience.... Mario Kart 7 lasted nearly 4 years for me, Nintendo are one of them publishers that make games that people will still play in years time.
    How many "hard-core" gamers have actually played Metroid Prime, not too many i reckon and I think the hard-core level on this is near elder scrolls.

    That's the kind of attitude that will kill a business and has been killing this forum for the past several months. What OP is getting at is that Joe seems to be driving his business into the ground by not providing his fans with the type of content that originally attracted them to his channel. Ironically the status of the forum seems to reflect this "no one is making you stay" mindset.

    I could not agree more. I've purchased almost all of those Nintendo games (still need to get Mario 3D World) and have enjoyed them so much. I regularly play all of them. I honestly think most of the Wii U's failures can be attributed to its marketing; a lot of casual gamers are unaware the system is even a new console and not a peripheral for their existing Wiis even two years after launch.
     
    I own a Wii U and play it regularly, but I do wish there was a dedicated party chat system akin to the 360 (best party chat system on last gen in my opinion). As I've grown older, gaming has become more social for me and the party chat system is the most convenient way to stay in touch with a lot of my friends. If Nintendo were to implement a full party chat system, I think it could quickly become the preferred console between all of my friends and I. It would also be a step in the right direction for Nintendo to embrace the internet just a little more. They already have a far more pleasant community with Miiverse (in my experience only of course) than Xbox Live, the PSN or Steam. I think if they added a party chat system, I may possibly get more use out of it than I did the 360 last gen and that was my preferred console. 
     
    The edge that the other consoles have lies in third party support and better hardware. While the big AAA publishers often fail to innovate with yearly sequels, there's always that hope and potential that the next big one will be worth it. Right now for me it's the Witcher 3. I already have a strong PC so the PS4 and Xbox One don't offer me anything there, but for the console gamers Nintendo doesn't have an answer for it. While I'm always looking forward to Smash Bros and the new Zelda, I also like more mature games at times. To be clear, I'm not knocking Nintendo right now. Majora's Mask is my all-time favorite game. It's just that aside from a few publishers like Ubisoft, there's not much third party support for the Wii U to speak of. To be fair though, the better hardware on the other systems only matters as far as third party titles go. Wind Waker HD is 1080p and 60fps because Nintendo can program for just their own hardware and are comfortable with a cartoony art style.
     
    I disagree with the notion going around lately that since Nintendo doesn't make new IP, the games from them are stagnant or that they lack creativity and innovation as a result. The rest of the industry is more than content with yearly sequels of Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed. Ubisoft recently said that they have no intention of making a game that can't be made into a franchise. EA rushes developers and pushes games like Dragon Age 2 and Battlefield 4 out the door. With the universal acceptance of regenerating health and two weapon limits in almost all modern shooters and the slow corrosion of games through season passes, day one dlc, and exploitative micro-transactions, I find it difficult to be angry with Nintendo for not creating new IP.
    Each new game in those IPs are well polished. They're complete, full games with no content cut out. The Zelda's all bear that name in the title, but they're unique and independent in their own identities. Majora's Mask may use many of the same assets from Ocarina of Time, but those two games are worlds apart. The same can be said of most of their IPS. Mario Sunshine is not the same as Galaxy and Wind Waker is not the same as Twilight Princess. If I buy a Nintendo game, I can expect it to be money well spent.
     
    A lot of this quality in the first party games may come from the sort of closed ecosystem Nintendo has fostered by neglecting the third party support, but that's more of a condemnation of the company as a whole and doesn't, or at least shouldn't, reflect the quality of the first party titles Nintendo puts out. I don't think Nintendo can afford to release a buggy dlc ridden mess like many other publishers can year after year and for that I'm somewhat grateful.

    I got about 20 seconds in before stopping the video.  "Nice job big blue".  Who was saying that!?  Is there an off screen narrator in this game?  Does he have support from a fellow reploid?  What's with the awkward zoom outs and zoom ins?  Was that a thing they started doing after Sonic Adventure 2?  Too many questions.
  9. Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by SGTthunder82 in Sonic Boom Gameplay E3 2014   
    Ummm....no? It could be an okay fun game, it just doesn't look to be SONIC fun. For starters, it just moves way too slow to be a Sonic game. It actually looks like it may end up being more frustrating than fun. I think the last real fun Sonic game was probably Sonic Adventures for the Dreamcast.

    That's not the point dude, it comes off like you guys have nothing better to do so you nitpick stuff that could just slide. This place is at a crawl in terms of posting, you should be encouraging any type of posting as long as it's not vial or anything of that nature. People won't post for hours on end and when someone finally makes a new thread; BOOM you guys are there to let them know they did something wrong.
     
    You shouldn't have a 'no one is making you stay' kind of view, a lot of people ARE and have moved on from this place because certain aspects have become overbearing. I'm not calling you guys out or anything, this is just a dialog, I personally think you guys should ease up a bit, it's becoming a bit much.
     
    This thread has now turned into something else because the previous moderator had to say something he really didn't need to say, he could have just moved it which takes a total of 5 seconds or just let it be, and that be the end of it. A remark doesn't need to be thrown out for everything, it derails discussions and makes people angry.

  12. Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by DoctorEvil in Where are the reviews?   
    I can't comment on GameGrumps, but as a managed partner with Polaris, TotalBiscuit doesn't have to worry about combing through his reviews and hiding game music or other clips, so TB was spared the wave of content claims on his videos.  Joe and the majority of Polaris content makers were made "affiliate" partners, which lead to to the mass of claims and having to be super careful about what goes into their videos.  
     
    Now to address the rate of Joe's reviews let's look at the actual numbers, from a period of March to the end of May (before E3) for the last 4 years:
     
    2014: 7 Reviews (8 if Watch Dog's gets in before E3 -- 9 if you count Edge of Tomorrow, which Joe took down because of movie studio copyright claims)
    (Rambo, South Park: TSOT, TItanfall, Metal Gear, ESO, Amazing Spider-man 2, Godzilla)
    2013: 9 Reviews
    (Metal Gear Rising, Tomb Raider, Walking Dead SI, Bioshock Infinite, Defiance MMO, Injustice, Star Trek, Star Command (indie), Metro: Last Light)
    2012: 6 Reviews
    (Asura's Wrath, Mass Effect 3, Star Wars Kinect. Mount & Blade: NW, Risen 2, Dragon's Dogma)
    2011: 8 Reviews
    (Dragon Age II, Total War: Shogun, Homefront, Michael Jackson Kinect, Mortal Kombat, Thor, Brink, LA Noir)
     
    So what does that tell us, Joe's reviews are dropping? The AJS is dying? Cats are living with Dogs? The end of the world?
     
    NO, it tells us that even within the same time period across years, video game release rates are variable, and even with that, Joe has kept up with his average for reviews, WHILE at the same time for this year he started streaming 3 nights a week (which gives people a inside look at games he will be reviewing), launching a new gaming community, and having to be more careful about what goes into his videos because of YouTube.
       
    So please, show the man some respect and research before posting your groupthink ideas about what is an acceptable rate of FREE content that he gives you.

    Well since you haven't played Nintendo since the Gamecube, and Wii U can play Wii titles, you need to round out the Zelda collection. I see you already got Skyward Sword which is a Wii title. You also need to pick up Twilight Princess(Wii) and Windwaker HD(Wii U). Remember, Nintendo + Zelda = Gold. The Legend of Zelda has always been like that one friend that I can always go to, because she will never let me down.
  16. Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by CookieArcher in Just bought a Wii-U! Awesome games?   
    Wii U can play also Wii Games.
    i suggest the best game (trilogy) of the last  game decade played with nunchuk.
    10/10 BAD ASS - best gaming experience  after ocarina of time
    the metroid prime  trilogy is realy my TOP TOP TOP favorite of all times; nothing can beat it - nothing.

    He also did a Jimquisition on it this week. Really, Steam needs quality control. This game may be a contender to Day One Gary's Incident.

    That new Galaxy client sounds awesome if they can get it working. Full party chat would be a plus too. I hope GOG becomes more and more popular to the point where I don't have to use Steam. It's a long ways off but I hope they'll get there. Going digital is not synonymous with DRM and I'm so glad that CD Projekt Red is championing that.

  24. Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by Variloh in Nintendo lives up to its hype   
    I just wanted to shed light that it seems IMO the only company whose games are living up to its hype is nintendo. Titanfall didnt, Watch dogs apparently didn't, and there are really no trully intresting games out on Xbox one and PS4 yet (exclusives)(IMO AND YET READ THOSE TWO THINGS). Yet Nintendos latest hyped games: pokemon x/y, Mario Kart 8, fire Emblem Awakeining, mario 3d world, animal crossing new leaf. etc are all living up to there hype. Yet it seems all people can say about nintendo is how big a failure the wii u is.... on  a related topic, are youtubers/streamers partially responsible for this?  http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/topic/19454-are-popular-youtubers-and-twitch-personalitys-adding-to-the-hype-problem/
