Reflections/Opinions etc

DBQhams – What’s next? Does it matter?

Osiris Prime – No more Club Nintendo but a new rewards program will come about with the help of DeNA.

Zeux – It’s a neat little thing, but Nintendo continues to be my “just another gaming platform” and in fact runs 5th or 6th fiddle to Android gaming with the nVidia SHIELD Pro

Greylock3491 – Does the NX need to be BC? NES turned 30 – Contra Rocks!

Osiris Prime – Disney Infinity 3.0 and Mario Maker with my family. A little bit of BLOPs 3 but mostly Ark Survival Evolved (game preview Xbox One)

DBQhams – Super Smash Bros and Jackbox with the family, Saints Row IV, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD

Zeux – Played => Star Wars Battlefront (PC), also bought Black OPS III and Rainbow Six Siege for PC but haven’t played those two yet

Greylock3491 – Madden 2016 :-P, BF Co-op, Fallout 4
