    Hey man were you playing smash ultimate just now? I just ran into a tak13 using Isabelle and I instantly remembered that username from vgchartz

    Hahaha
    I would be playing if I had an NS!
    No, it wasn't me,
    My username is from a gba game, so it's not surprising that there is another person who uses the same with me, or he is a vgc lurker and I inspired him... Hah
    Me using Isabelle? Not, by in any stretch of imagination!

    on 13 December 2018

    Oh OK I thought it was a quite unique username and I've never seen it anywhere else. I had no idea it was from a game. Anyways I guess it's good for you that you weren't him because that guy really sucked lol

    Hahaha
    No surprise, he uses Isabelle!
    I suck too, unless I play with a pro controller.

    Why vacations in the middle of September?
    Anyway, it's never late for some rest from console/company wars. :P

    Vacation in September because pesky kids and students are back to college. Plus it's not too hot like in summer. And yes I need to recharge the batteries before returning to war :)

    < naruball posted something on tak13's wall:

    Yup. We let's just agree to disagree.



    As for your other question, yes I am Greek. Was born in Athens but moved to Cyprus at some point. Can't say I'm loving it here.



    If memory serves, you mentioned that you play volleyball, too, right? Even on national league, I think. That's all sorts of amazing (if that isn't you, sorry, my bad).

    Also, I liked your MC/Famitsu thread title. Sure, it could have been shorter, but I found it rather refreshing.

    on 14 December 2016

    All these are true... Soyou're just greek? Not Greek-Cypriot?

    Thanks forappreciating my title, I have edited it and made it somewhat better I think.
    As I said a thousand times, I make these titles to attract more peopleviewing an interesting thread,...
    MD Threads were basically dead, okay FF XV and its sales surelyis very interesting topic to follow but my titlesmust have a significant effect too.

    on 14 December 2016

    Hahahahaah, Naruball are youmy stalker? Most of the timewe discuss you mention things that I have saidanytime...

    on 14 December 2016

    What the f@ck is going on with my posts, random weird letters appear...

    on 14 December 2016

    I have the weirdest memory ever. I remember the stupidest, most insignificant things you can imagine, so yeah.
    (I know what you're thinking: "that's exactly what a stalker would say!!!!")

    But volleyball is my greatest passion in life, so as soon as saw you mentioning that, there was no way I'd forget it. I'm not that good at vball myself (I play second division), but I do absolutely love it and have great respect for people who compete on such level.

    I guess technically I'm half Greek half Cypriot, since my dad is Cypriot, but I'd like to pretend I'm 100% Greek :p

    Where are you from? Do you still live in Greece?
    (and the stalking continues...)

    on 14 December 2016


    From Messolonghi, I live in Athens, me and other 3.5m people. hahah

    I can't really trust you about not being that good. because many players  underrate themshelves, you don't have to be so much great at this level, unless you have a strict and an extravagant coach. 
    By second division you mean A2? If yeah, that's a high one, also my skills befit A2 more not A1...
    I wish was in A2,,,


    Don't be so enthused, do you really think that at this age I have a very active participation?
    Do you remember my position? What's yours?

    on 14 December 2016

    Microsoft edge what are you doiinggggggggg? :@

    on 14 December 2016

    Haha. For a second I thought my laptop wasn't displaying things properly. Thankfully I can understand everything.

    Oh, you can trust me alright. You see I'm a benchwarmer. My coach has so much faith me, he feels bad for the other team getting destroyed; when we have a match, I spend most of the time sitting on the bench. But training is fun, so I don't mind it all that much. It beats playing recreationally.

    I'm not sure what the correct term for my position is. In Scotland we used to call it "power". Basically, I hit from 4. I tend to score a lot of points, but I don't hit high enough (mostly because of my height) for the hit to look impressive.

    As for A1 and A2, I've no idea. I think in Cyprus we only have 2 divisions and nothing else. The level is not too high. There are a lot of guys who are around 5'9'', so yeah, as you can imagine, pretty low.

    What position do you play? Even if you did mention it, I didn't notice it, as I read your comment right before I left for uni or something. I assume you get a lot of court time. Being 18 must be a great age for volleyball in terms of performance.

    Next time you're in court, kill a ball for me too!
    I promise I will accept Jesu... I mean Ninty in my life.

    How are you Tak :P? It's been a long time :). Did you watch yesterday's Eurovision semi-final :)?

    ahahahahahahaha ! No, ( I mean not fully) with such a shitty song by us! I loved your country's song, you must got a heart attack since you were announced last, albeit you shouldn't if you have seen Eurovision odds and perceiving how great is your repsentative's perfomance! ;)
    Personally, I wasn't expecting us to be qualified, so I'm not sad! My mom and bro had a last hope even till the disclosure of the last remaining finalist! I were saying them,: No, guys, with Malta outside don't anticipate to hear Greece, you will hear Malta!

    I'm Just exasperated because it's our first time not in a final...
    Plus that there is responsibility for this outcome in our current government and its choices for our public l tv! Our left government has damaged us even in Eurovision, which sounds absurd but trust me!

    They have put as a president in our public tv, one of those pseudo-cultural/art lovers non-commercial leftist singers, who had stated in an interview that he loathes Eurovision but he will we send an entry just for the tv ratings, since almost all greek tv viewers watch the show, and our public tv is highly profiting by the advertisments during the break! And what did he do? Direct assignment to a completely unknown group, with a farcical song ( with a message about refuges, like Eurovision is the suitable space for political messages, especially of this kind ), od an unfortunate and ludicrous mixing of pontiac with rap mucic which ridiculed us across all Europe'! Now, without a greek interest, ratingS will fall of cliff, what a success for this idiot... No final, collapse in ratings! It's like they did it deliberatelly!

    At least, they should have held a competition to let us to determine for our representantive or themselves send a skillful and beloved singer with a dignified song, and I wouldn't care if we again failed to pass in the final but what to expect from a leftist singer...
    They are ignorant and obsessional with these events!

    Done ^^




    hehehheeheh! ;) Thank you machina! I had sent it immediately after your ''repatriation'' !
    I was intrigued by seeing that a site admin was for so long absent ( I had assumed that you're friends with ioi, -eh UK, similar ages-, and by extension a co-creator of the site ), I discussed with mods for who you're, an considered your abstention from the site, a big surprise!
    What was the reason? Intense console wars in the forum? hehe that hasn't died out, and never will. Perhaps it's not in the extend of the past ( due to the by far domination of one home console this gen, while in the previous there was an unanticipated super-hit underdog in the beginning and fierce battle in the long run), I can't know, I'm only one year and a half a member here and never had heard of vgc prior to signing up!

    I knew that you weren't accepting much friend requests ( at least outside of your fanbase ) before but after sometime of you return, when I noticed that you added some people ( from all fanbases ), I puzzled over why you hadn't accept my request all this time, I had started worrying, so you had overlooked it! That's all!

    I feel that is behoove, to commend you and manifest my respect to you, prompted by my love for vgc and something else ;)!
    Keep up the good work, we will always venerate you for saving and sustaining the site! Ÿf course this can be told to trucks too! Nevertheless, you are responsible for the site center of interest/focal point, the sales, hence you might deserve it even more! Although, trucks fixes bugs, enriches, optimizes the site e.t.c , he keeps the it fuctional and relavant in a few wordsl ! I'm in a quandary, anyway you're equally worth the applause)

    You have to know that we hold you in high esteem and being grateful to you for shouldering this hard and risky task ( you have to deal with scathing comments at any time when there is a mistake, some people are so much strict and unfair) and your effort! Please, don't lose your passion, we support you! ;)


    P.s Would you be open to the eventuality of ioi assinging you the hardware tracking or you, ask him to take charge of it? I'm sad to say this but ioi by doing monthly updates and lately not making adjustments in glaring cases of mistakes, he demonstrates that his interest in vgc has vanished?

    on 10 May 2016

    Thanks. But woah, that's a long post!

    Yeah that's how I feel about Brett too. I'd gladly take over the HW tracking at this point, but dunno if he's prepared to do that.

    on 10 May 2016

    assign* hehehe! I wouldn't blame you if you didn't read the whole thing
    I'm glad that you're ready and willing to take over the hardware tracking too! It is a more challenging task! I like very much the fact that you hasten to do adjustments ( at least in the titles you're allowed to do, so to new/recent releases ) when there are news that imply a software tracking error! Simply as I have said, you're indurstious!

    on 10 May 2016

    Yeah I can't stand seeing incorrect figures up. Frustrates me no end that I can't automatically adjust stuff myself :(

    Instead I have to compile a list and ask Brett to make them.

    on 10 May 2016

    Yeah, it's frustrating especially when you take into account that you're so disposed to do the adjustment and our first vgc master isn't letting you!

    Specific cases are causing trouble, like bayo's 2!... ;) One person who doesn't know that it's fairly overtracked in the USA will come to celebrate for its sales, then someone will point out that is overtracked, perhaps in a provocative manner and a war might start ( at least this was happening in the recent past).
    And when you don't correct the blatant mistakes, people will be forgetting your successes... Which is a pity! You can do a lot of great thigns and one bad thing, some people will remember you for the second, that's life!

    I finally bought Woolly World a few days ago, I'm halfway through world 6, when I'm done ill go back and try getting all the collectibles, hopefully I can get 100% before Twilight Princess HD comes out on Friday

    I miss our discussions, both friendly and the intense ones... I have sent my laptop pc to dell (broken screen) for repair, so my current internet device is new 3ds, the browser is way better than old models' browser, but the fact that it takes some time to type a comment, irks me or getting bored to type, when with my laptop pc I was doing it blazingly fast by touch typing...
    I just realized that something keeps eluding me, that 3ds has word prediction (not at its best implementation, since isn't like the one of mobile phones). lol However, still saves time.
    Anyway, thus I hardly ever commenting and mostly I don't reply to others.
    Usually my answers aren't brief, I'm meticulous. :?)

    Great then... Late but better than never or even later lol, But already at 6th world? I don't like to proceed fast on games ( I will explain the reason why, later) Where did you play TP first, wii or gc?. Are you interested in pokken tournament?

    on 02 March 2016

    Hopefully it gets fixed soon so we can have more intense discussions lol

    But ya I kinda rushed through on the first playthrough and I will go back and take my time collecting everything the second time through.

    I played on GC originally (eventually played it on Wii a few years later) but I'm not really that interested in Pokken, it looks neat and I may get it eventually but not right away. Do you plan on getting it?

    on 02 March 2016

    And what have you been playing lately? How do you like the New 3DS compared to older models? I still haven't upgraded.

    on 02 March 2016

    Note: I don't have the money to pay the screen replacement lol... And frankly, I'm fucked up... I was planning to buy a wii u.
    So once I get money, they will be tossed to dell for fixing the device. And the wii u purchase, is once again deferred.


    hhhhm pokken? I would definately buy it if i had a wii u, it's my pokemon spin-off game dream. I like the genre (tekken are from my favorite non ninty games) and being combined with pokemon shooter, makes it a must for me. ( just like zelda with hyrule warriors, I had never liked a warriors game before or at least not so much as with hw.) Next I want a mario shooter... hehehe Splatoon super mario edition. hahaha
    Also pokken reminds me pokemon stadium charm, they have things in common.
    In addition I consider it the pokemon smash bros...;) Pretty competitive, I'm looking forward, to kick my cousin's ass who is a pokemaniac and my bro who is a tekken specialist.

    on 02 March 2016

    I always thought you had a Wii U, so you just play on 3DS or do you have other gaming devices as well?

    on 02 March 2016

    How did you surmise that? My posting style was exuding that I have one? lol
    Details for my gaming habits, new 3ds xl, e.t.c tommorow, I'm drowsy now.

    Nintendo should promote new 3ds xl effectively, it's sad that they don't do it, old 3ds pool is big, it would be a great benefit at least a modest proportion of them to jump to the new model... The sales declining rate could be lower.
    However, it needs an official price drop, to be more enticing, it currently costs 220$ on amazon which is money-grabbing for already 3ds owners and when it was being sold for 180 dollars it was dominating the video game best sellers amazon.us list.
    old 3ds owners must be informed for the superiority of it. Many of them think that an exclusive game can be only a reason for buying it, but it has tons of other things that justify the upgrade.

    For instance, the screen is ips, ... Or browser supports html5.... Well browser is the most improved thing, after system's speed enhancement, obviously thanks to stronger cpu/gpu (( browsing, loading, boot up, shut down, jumping from menu to other section and vice versa are all way faster). old 3ds browser was a mess. If you care for 3d, yeah, it's truly stable.
    You should have really upgraded, it makes the gaming experience much better. It is what 3ds should have been from the beginning.
    If Nx releases this year will you buy it trough the year or later?

    on 02 March 2016

    I don't typically buy consoles at launch but it depends on what NX is, launch games, launch price, etc. If it is appealing enough I may get it at launch but if its not than I will wait.

    I didn't get 3DS until Oct 2011, by then it had a price cut, OoT 3D was out and 3D Land/MK7 were just around the corner. I didn't get Wii U until March 2014, I waited until it had a handful of exclusives that interested me.

    So like I said it comes down to games, price and features.

    on 02 March 2016

    I have to go to sleep, if I stay posting while being somnolent, I will make more and more mistakes. lol

    Can I get your thoughts on these?

    I think NX 2017,might just be 3DS successor with Wii Us in 2018

    Wii U LT 18M




    No... All nintendo home consoles, have 5 years and a half lifitime, except wii which had more, viz 6 and a half, but for obvious reasons.... Nintendo is making enough money but their hardware sales are not in the Nintendo standards! Wii u sales are flat but soon they should start falling! Their brand reputation will be wounded even more, they need something that will have strong sales and create buzz/have positive ballyhoo, to boost their prestige, 2018 is too late... 2017 at maximum and for me it will be 2017, (mainly if it's about replacing wii u, 3ds could be replaced in 2016) since they release their consoles the year after E3 announcement/ one year and a half after E3!
    2017 release, means more legs for already released wii u games and more room for sales for the 2016 releases! I mean why releasing pokken tournament in 2016, if you plan to replace wii u? People will abandon the old console and focus to the new one, so that's not viable for the game! They teased NX in mid 2015, I think they don't have time to have ready big guns for new console launch, if this is about to be released so shortly.

    Also, 2017 it's one year after the middle of xboxone and ps4 lifitime, a year after both consoles possible sales peak (consoles that sell fast and get price drops early usually peak in their third year), especially for xbox one! Release in 2016 can be dangerous if nx is a home console, people's interest will be attached to 8th gen consoles, 2016 is the best year of xboxone and ps4 in terms of games! In addition, nx release in 2017 may force sony and ms to release their new consoles soon after it, 18/19, starting from scratch and giving to nintendo the competitive edge.
    Althougth, xbox one might not be forced by NX to get a successor earlier, but due to ps4 dominance, ms may want to pull the rug from under sony's feet by releasing xboxone successor earlier than expected, which would probably be more powerful than ps4, as a result stealing its thunder but hereupon sony could answer with ps5... xbox/ps2 -> 360/ps3 situation repeatition m, schedule-wise...
    Replacing wii u in its 4th year, can infuriate those Nintendo fans who acquired a wii u! Most of Nintendo fans are emotional people (of course there is a porportion of Nintendo fans that wanted all along a short death for the wii u, by dreaming that NX will fix everything that was wrong with the wii u, or those that love wii u but they await the greatness that nx may introduce, so the don't care for wii u close of day ), who commonly bond with their consoles!

    A 2016 wii u replacement could be seemed to soon! How else, when you're used to almost six years lifetime for Nintendo consoles, fans could feel like their favorite company cares fore thei wallet not them, even though, Nintendo is an enterprise not a charity institution someone may say...
    Nintendo has already done bad moves this gen, for which its fans 3ds/wii u owners are fretting about (like not providing them what they exactly desire or causing long game draughts), they can't afford to do more mistakes, risking losing even those who bought wii u and gave them generously their money!
    The aim is to bring back those fans (gamecube/n64) (not pulling a wii, which was out of ordinary for Nintendo) that would like to buy wii u but it wasn't an attractive product for them and some settled for just 3DS ( tablet controller-lets not forget that xboxone was selling like wii u before dropping kinect-being overpriced which is a huge problem when this console is for accompanying another console, and not a first choice for the most of the consumers cycle and not in the slightest third party support)!

    They have the leeway to give one more year to wii u, in order, wii u owners to take more lightly its inglorious funeral! Nintendo's making profit!

    They're not urged to replace wii u, at least profits-wise! Hardware sales are mediocre in general (but flat and decent) and give bad publicity, as gaming audience focus on sales and ignore profits.

    Anyway, this is the point of my aspect: If after all nx thing doesn't work , you risk to lose even this extremely loyal audience that dared and purchased the wii u (as I aforesaid, the aim is to retrieve those who would jump in wii u but eventually they didn't, and not even losing the ones that stayed faithful), which in the end was profitable?



    As for the sales... 15m-16.5m wii u without any price drop and with some luck 17-18.5m!

    Nintendo expects wii u to be at 13m as of March 30th 2016, gamecube sold 4m onwards, I can't see why wii u wouldn't sell the half of that to reach at least 15m...
    It depends on when nx will be released,,,

    P.s NX may be a hybrid.... Releasing both parts in the same year or first the handheld device and later the home one, and vice versa! Plus that nintendo could do regional release, like releasing first in Japan, and fairly later to the west! Ah, let me not to forget, I wish pokken tournament to be a sleeper hit, and make wii u to exceed my conservative and optimistic LT sales prediction! ;P
