  1. Maybe I'm not understanding it but I can't think...

    Maybe I'm not understanding it but I can't think of many tech companies that have been consistent since 1996. Microsoft has been all over the place with the Windows versions (NT, CE, ME, 2K, XP,...
  2. I use all digital tools but I've made several...

    I use all digital tools but I've made several print publications that were designed to look like the analog era (not game related or I'd share). Adobe CC is a wonderful thing, I would never want to...
  3. Actually I didn't list any numbers for PC. I just...

    Actually I didn't list any numbers for PC. I just said a lot of games are available on Windows, and they are. So you don't have to buy any console if you don't want one.

    If Nintendo is run by...
  4. No it hasn't. The Switch has sold nearly as many...

    No it hasn't. The Switch has sold nearly as many units as the XBOne in half the time and there's still 75 million 3DSs out there (with tens of millions of copies of Pokιmon games alone). Not to...
  5. There are likely more Android phones in the U.S....

    There are likely more Android phones in the U.S. alone than global 3DS and Switch sales combined, if anyone's got a monopoly on portable gaming devices right now it isn't Nintendo. Also isn't Stadia...
  6. I don't expect any games console to be the first...

    I don't expect any games console to be the first device to introduce a new technology. That was what we had arcades for back in the day, and high end gaming PCs today. A console is supposed to...
  7. The Morphus X300 was a cool concept but again...

    The Morphus X300 was a cool concept but again zero support for games, I can hardly call that a game console. I don't understand how these devices can even be in the same conversation as dedicated...
  8. Yes the Shield has similar hardware but to me the...

    Yes the Shield has similar hardware but to me the key difference is that Nintendo actually supports the Switch as a gaming console with an entire ecosystem of hardware accessories and software...
  9. The Stadia is designed to kill traditional...

    The Stadia is designed to kill traditional consoles. I don't think it will but it is sold as a direct competitor to Sony/MS. I don't see how games being multiplatform can be evidence of a cartel. If...
  10. It feels better than the monstrosity that was the...

    It feels better than the monstrosity that was the Wii U tablet. But it can really feel like however you want, you can use the JoyCons separately, or get a Pro Controller, or a Switch Lite, etc. The...
  11. Stadia is one of the dumbest tech products to...

    Stadia is one of the dumbest tech products to come along this decade but the fact that it even exists shows that Google doesn't see a cartel, or if they do they think they can break it up. But...
  12. No it's not a cartel. If it were Sega and Atari...

    No it's not a cartel. If it were Sega and Atari would still be in the hardware business and Nintendo wouldn't have struggled against newcomers like Sony and Microsoft. The fact that a new challenger...
  13. That looks right to me. After reading the book...

    That looks right to me. After reading the book "Racing the Beam" I could never consider the 2600 in the same league as anything with real hardware sprites/tiles. The TIA chip is just so primitive....
  14. Lucky you then, I've never been so fortunate to...

    Lucky you then, I've never been so fortunate to see it out in the wild. But yeah I should have Googled first it definitely had an international release. Not to mention Gauntlet was out too.

    Games have to be made for the medium. It's like when mobile gaming was new some of the early titles tried to emulate console games and did so poorly, then games like Angry Birds came out that took...

    The only reason I gave it any hope was because this is Google, which I consider a very smart company, and they threw a ton of money into marketing this thing. Why do that if it's obvious it's not...

    Oh yeah duh I forgot about Warlords and 4 player pong games lol. Plus Tank 8 is 8 players and that's from the '70s.

    The PCE CD arcade cards also had 2MB RAM. The palette is impressive but not really necessary for the time, 256 colors is plenty for games like Gloom.
  19. The SMS has the advantage of 4 bpp sprites but it...

    The SMS has the advantage of 4 bpp sprites but it can't move or animate big sprites like a 4th gen console without a lot of flickering. You almost never see that many colors in one object either....
  20. The most impressive game I've seen for the CD32...

    The most impressive game I've seen for the CD32 is probably Zool. It's a mess with the busy backgrounds but at least it's fast paced and there's a lot of stuff moving around on screen. Reminds me of...

    It's just fun to watch a train wreck. That launch party was one of the most awkward things I've ever seen. How does one rent out an entire nightclub, hire MMA guys and a DJ, serve a buffet, display a...

    Congratulations. In the time since Project Y/Paprium was announced I finished my Master's and PhD degrees. So I know the feeling of working on something for years at a time when things aren't going...

    Good work, the TMNT game was a huge hit at the time, it really felt like playing a cartoon. Music is so catchy too. Was that the first 4 player arcade game in the U.S.? I know Sega released Quartet...

    Hey, that looks kind of like Arkagis Revolution! :)

    I hadn't seen this thread until today, I'm really impressed with that SMB port. Any word from the developer on how he made it so accurate? Is it...

    Your questions answer themselves, thanks to Fonzie we won't get to see most of the hard work that went into Paprium. I for one thought the music and background art was top notch, too bad I can't...
