Meanwhile... the squares... the colours... there is a hidden message, I'm not sure what they are hinting towards, but could it be... something more powerful, too powerful to speak the name of it out loud? Some forbidden truth that can not be spoken?

I'm sure there is something, I'm certain, I just... can't put my finger on it.

Oh well here is a picture of the Windows Logo circa 1998.

The Game Boy survived a bomb in iraq I know, still runs even though the game is melted in. Not sure about the SNES. And I know a Wii might break if you drop it off a shelf.

Well, I think PlayStation and Nintendo 64 are in the same boat. The PlayStation 1 isn't a supergiant, its 'sequels' or whatever you'd call them are. Same with Nintendo. Wii and DS's are pretty big right now.

They definitely had a better showing than I expected.

Though it's a shame that the way they get their exclusives isn't by making them, but from stealing previously non-exclusive titles. (Bayonetta, Dynasty Warriors, was Xenosaga multiplatform?)
#113 to #48 - John Cena (06/12/2014) [-]
**anonymous rolls 9,615**

Bayonetta was actually dropped by the publisher and whatnot. Literally no company tired to acquire them aside from Nintendo.
#49 to #48 - John Cena (06/11/2014) [-]
Oh, also that wide open world Zelda might be the first time the series actually goes anywhere since OOT.
Though they just showed a still image and a scripted boss, so I'm not going to get too excited.

I dunno. Nintendo's e3 was good (great if you count the smash tournament too) but there was really only four games I personaly was interested in. Smash, Zelda, Splatoon and Xenblade Chronicles. I feel like Nintendo can show less and get more hype than other studios for some reason (although I agree Sony's and EA's announcements were pretty boring)

I kind of miss gaming back then.....everything was new and innovative, the generic FPS didn't claim the market, people thought that Mario 64 and 007 look realistic.....It was a golden age.

More innovative? No. Most games back then were pretty much generic. Sure, it comes down to a point when some revolutionary stuff was released, but most games produced were still pretty much the same. There is far more innovative stuff today, you just think about the AAA titles. Think about what we have today 2000+

Mount and Blade: Medieval quest for glory and power

Watch_Dogs: Taking advantage of hacking the city to overpower your enemies

Battlefield: Utilizing infantry and mobilized weaponry to take down the opposition

GTA: Freeroaming in cities with lots of possibilities

Papers, Please: Being a border guard in a communist regime

MOBAS: Teambased action where tactics and composition can decide a game just as much as skills

DayZ: Survival in a zombie-apocalypse

PAYDAY: Robbing stuff, utilizing stealth, taking hostages and so on

Total War: Mix of governing an empire as well as fighting battles on a huge scale

Hitman: Play as a hired gun to take down powerful men, using stealth and disguises

Goat Simulator: Play as a ******* goat and just wreck stuff

Those are just some examples out of hundreds. The early days of gaming built the core, and now come the indiegames as well as huge ones. Call of Duty may never change, but both big and small developers will try to make new stuff to get the extra oomph. Succesful series remain the same because people bitch about overhauls, but those games make up for less than 1% of the market. Look up Indie on Steam, that's where you are guaranteed to see some concept you've never heard of before.

way to jump on the bandwagon
#34 to #33 - comradewinter ONLINE (06/11/2014) [-]
I'm sorry, have you ever heard of a game that lets you remotely control a wide range of electronics? You're dense beyond lead if you think idea = execution. The game was mediocre, but everyone fell in love with the concept. Lots of innovation doesn't even make it to the market.
#14 to #1 - blancka (06/11/2014) [-]
"Everything was new and innovative"

Head to any rom site for games of that era. Randomly scroll up and down while moving the mouse erratically. Download the game it lands on. It will almost definitely not be innovative.

Shovelware is not new. The NES was basically the king of shovelware and that only continued onto the snes and n64.

You're wrong there, the NES at least had a shred of Nintendo quality control behind it, the kings of shovelware were the consoles EVEN BEFORE (hello Atari!)

So much for the "good old days when everything was bettur"
#85 to #43 - hauntzor (06/11/2014) [-]
You do realize how difficult Atari games are/were to program back then, right?  The language was complex as 			****		 and there wasn't anything like BASIC back then.  There were only about 70 people in the entire world who actually had the know-how to not only program a game on the Atari 2600, but were also able to make the games fun as well.   
   
Shovelware by today's standards?  Sure, but we're also talking about fitting the bare minimum of a game onto a 4kb cartridge.  Compared to today they don't even compare to the amount of content on an original Game Boy game.  To look at it from the standpoint of a person from the early 80's, I'd say Atari games were far from shovelware when you consider how much effort they actually took to code and produce.

It is not me calling them shovelware. Find ANY source at all speaking of the "Great Video Game Crash of 1983" that doesn't mention the overabundance of low quality games in that period in history.

There may have been many bad games in the NES era, but they sure as hell didn't sink the whole industry into a black hole like their predecessors.
#44 to #43 - blancka (06/11/2014) [-]
Go play any NES game by LJN and eat your words.

There was next to no quality control because there was no quality to control. 90% of games were utter **** that barely functioned. Everyone remembers the classics like mario, zelda, metroid, contra. What they don't remember is the other 800 games.

-Megaman Legends
-Turok
-Star Wars Episode 1 Racer
-Banjo Kazooie
-Hydro Thunder (So ******* cash, man....)
-Killer Instinct Gold
-Quake II

-Starfox 64
-Super Smash Bros
-Majora's Mask
-Super Mario 64
-Mario Kart 64
-Yoshi's Story
