    Yeah...bandits in the realm of Hokuto are kind of like storm troopers. You think they would have passed along the info to not shoot arrows at Kenshiro at some point but people always gotta find out the hard way. Man is driving an armored jeep and still has plenty of concentration to catch it and put it into your forehead.

    Tekken games have always sold really well, from what I recall Tekken 7 was actually a significant step down in sales from how well 6 did.

    thats not true!
    tekken 6 sold in the first 5 month 1,15Million Units
    http://www.siliconera.com/2011/05/10/tekken-6-was-namco-bandais-highest-selling-game-this-past-fiscal-year/

    while tekken 7 sold in the first one or two month 1,66Million Units.
    no one knows the current number not to speak from the final lifetime numbers in comparison to previous titles.
    thats something we have to see in the future.

    it already catched up with sfv on pc in term of units sold and there is still content coming which might lead to more sales.

    We are at an interesting time where AAA gaming budgets can't really support a 60 dollar pricetag, but gamers seem unwilling to spend more than that unless they get some really nice goodies at that price point. I have played some great small studio games on steam and have seen those same games break into the PS4 market.

    Or you know, they could scale back a bit, and make a few more Sonic Manias to fund the Sonic Forces and actually take time and do it right so people don't feel cheated spending $60 on a pretty paperweight...

    No one has any problem shelling out 20-40 bucks for a well-made small budget title.

    Didn't you skip on Axiom Verge and Hyper Light Drifter?

    I sure did. Because they aren't up my alley.

    I only like the Metroid style in Metroid, and select Castlevanias.
    I'm trying to wrap my head around how this makes any sort of logical sense and am coming up short.

    Yep. Lots of dumb motherfuckers falling for the pre-order smoke-and-mirrors magic show nowadays and then regretting that shit. Sales for most games are front loaded as fuck.

    Its actually kinda hard to get realistic sales data from any company out to the public.

    SteamDB, NPD, Media Create Sales, and weekly/monthly top 10 charts for digital/physical sales in US/Europe are a good indicator. Companies have always been very tight lipped unless it put them in a good place with investors and potential investors.

    I'm starting to find myself in the "hate that the genre is called Metroidvania" crowd because it's conditioned people to hold Super Metroid and SOTN on a grand pedestal and not accept that anything afterwards could possibly match or surpass them.

    I don't place Super Metroid and SOTN on a pedestal that anything else afterwards could never surpass them, but rather the Bar which other games in the genre gets measured.
    I found games like Axiom Verge, Hyper Light Drifter and others meets or exceeds that mark.

    "You embarrass me," said Shadow, smiling. Then Shadow took his penis out and picked Cream up. "Let me charge up for a super ejaculation!" Shadow laid Cream down on the ground and then took his penis with him, which was already huge and shaking with sex energy, and found Cream's Piggy Bank, which was full of coins and dollars and things to save up for money, so she could buy what she wanted when she had enough inside it. Shadow took it and using his muscular penis, smashed a hole right through the piggy bank so now it was sitting on top of his penis like a hat. Shadow's penis looked like it belonged in a fashion show.

    but yeah ff14 is crack. I remember i tried playing a realm reborn on ps3 but couldn't download it because my internet was so shitty and it was taking too long

    The 3DS library keeps getting better and better.... Monster Hunter Stories is so good. Take Pokémon, fuse it with Monster Hunter, and you get this masterpiece. It's a turn-based RPG, but the MH universe translated incredibly well into the format. It even has online PvP, apparently? Godlike.

    If you like MH, pick it up.

    If you like Pokemon, pick it up.

    If you like both, you should have it already.

    If you don't have a 3DS..... WTF is wrong with you?

    I was wary, guess I like pick it. :tup:

    I felt this guy was overthinking the original Metroid II.
    "Atmospheric storytelling" is always such a common buzzword when it comes to Metroid, but Mark Brown makes a strong case for it actually being present in Metroid II. You can see how compared to the original and AM2R, Samus Returns casually ignores the fact that you're committing genocide and ruins some somber moments by placing combat sequences and stylish action in areas that it shouldn't.

    I don't really agree with his points on the save stations though.

    I feel the original Metroid II casually ignores the genocide too. Samus doesn't bat an eye over all the killing she's done. It didn't seem to me she spared the baby Metroid out of guilt but because it wasn't a threat.
