    Remastered GTA Trilogy?

    Feh. Gimme Bully.

    Bully was awesome too. Man, I'm just being reminded how rockstar is a shadow of their former selves. They used to be awesome. Now we get the same game over the span of 3 console generations.

    I'd say releasing the same work over and over again is completely in keeping with the idea of a rock star

    I was working at EBGames when GTA3 launched. We had 1 preorder for it and received 6 copies. That morning, the preorder guy was waiting for me at the gate and was fucking psyched about picking it up.

    In retrospect, that game flew under everyone’s radar and then picked up steam via word of mouth. Also that guy was way ahead of the curve.

    For the past two years i have been uploading my screenshots into a folder on my PC from my switch and apparently after curiously looking at it i have taken 56,190 screenshots.

    I uh.. i think i have a problem.

    Yep, need 43,810 more screenshots.

    No no, they only need 13,230 more.

    Actually you need 8,619,119 more.

    i'm not doing any of this math! I assume it makes the calculator say boobies though

    If so the number is off.
    Should be 5,261,818. Yeah, I was bored and used a calculator.

    Meanwhile we had 350 pre-orders for San Andreas. I drove over an hour to pick up my store's copies from the airport so we could get it a day early. Even then, the publisher wouldn't let us sell it until 7pm.

    I sat down and finally gave Disaster report 4 a try and uh.. that game is a god damn fever dream.
    I started out crawling out of a bus after an earthquake toppled it and ended leaping from a shiprun by human traffickers attempting to kidnap survivors after rigging it with a makeshift dynamite bomb and also somehow managed to swindle the USD equal of around 180 million dollars in yen from people along the way.

    I worked in two different game stores over the first few months of the GTA3 release and it was drilled into us: don't sell to kids!

    The game had a BBFC 18 age rating that didn't apply in Ireland anyway, but no one wanted the associated angry parents or bad press.

    "I can't sell you this game you're not old enough."
    "WHY WON'T YOU SELL MY CHILD THIS GAME YOU AWFUL PERSON" *Buys game and storms off*

    Next day

    I worked at a Blockbuster when Gta 3 came out. I had no idea if it was any good but I'd go look at the pictures on the box and thought it looked neat.

    It sat there for weeks not checked out before all the sudden it was all anybody was looking for.

    I assume it's gonna be some combination of GTA3, Vice City, San Andreas, and GTA4 (with the three GTA3 games making the most sense to me)

    Edit: I'm pretty sure they know literally no one wants to play GTA before GTA3 :P

    NGL, I never got into the 3D games, but I did have plenty of fun fooling around in the original.

    GTA 3 was great when you used the cheat to get all weapons and money and then just run around blowing stuff up. Back when games had cheat codes.

    I remember playing through Vice City when I was clearing some backlog a few years ago. I really enjoyed it until the last few storyline missions or so, when I was done with it and just wanted to complete a GTA game for once :biggrin: . Having the three GTA3-engine games on Switch sounds cool.

    I played Retro City Rampage on the 3DS, and thought it was pretty fun, and I hear it's similar to the old GTAs.

    I'm very interested in seeing what my hours played this year is. I know they have a thing they send out at around December to find out... But this year has been pretty bad for me. I've been mostly playing PS5 and PC so far. If they'd let me play the old Metroid games on my Switch (GBA, DS, etc) then I'd certainly have more.

    You just reminded me how amazing the "no friction" mod for Vice City was. The city just slowly descending into hilarious chaos with cars sliding all over the road and up buildings and such. I hope the remasters keep those text files...

    Not a personal experience but an observed one:
    EB Employee [To two kids trying to buy Doom (like, the original one)]: "Okay, how old are you?"
    Kid [after a long pause]: "Uh... fifteen!"
    EB Employee: "Nope, you had to look at the age rating on the box."

    (they were thirteen, max)

    I know it'll never happen and this will probably end up being for the currently known games and other non game related Pokemon things, but would it kill them to make a new Pokemon Pinball game on Switch?

    Nintendo games having very long tails on sales, some of the major Western franchises not being popular, and just I guess the timing of what's come out recently?

    The actual top selling game on the list is Minecraft... on Switch.

    I'm assuming the other major factor is this is probably physical sales. Edit: And the comments on the tweet bring another good point about portable gaming being bigger, and well... there's no competition outside of mobile games (which aren't going to be part of the dataset) for Switch there.

    Ya'll missing the point, which is that playstation is moribund in Japan. It's really more about the utter collapse of TV-bound consoles there, and Nintendo likely picking up most of those people still too old-fashioned to just get on with the mobile market like most of the country.

    Minecraft on Switch is so bad that even my kids would rather play it on GPU-less PC's than on the Switch anymore. :rotate:

    It's fine for just basic playing, but as soon as you want to do anything creative or that pushes the processes, boy howdy it's a mess. Not being able to really back up your worlds very easily (that I am aware of anyway, with the cloud saving it seems it's all or nothing) made my kids lose more than a couple worlds that would crash the Switch on loading.

    Anyway, that tweet bugs me simply because it says "since at least 1988 when..." That is not a statement where "at least" makes any sense. If that was the last time one console had all slots, then it isn't at least, it is. :lol:

    But if they have records of it happening in 1988, that would be the last time, so the statement would stand without the "at least". Whether or not it happened prior, doesn't change the fact that 1988 would have been the last time it happened.

    JRPG players tend toward wanting physical releases when they're available, and of the upcoming Switch titles that one's at least coming this year. It makes sense.
