    What should Nintendo have done instead of Wii U?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 January 2020

    RolStoppable said: The GC to GBA connectivity as well as the Gamepad fall into the category of Miyamoto enjoying it to create products that are more toy than game. In hindsight it's undeniable that Miyamoto had not enough good ideas to justify the Gamepad's existence. It was a controller that was put out in hopes that other developers would figure out something great to do with it. It...

    ...we hate him BECAUSE of all the things he does, the lies he tells, the complete lack of qualifications he has, and the petulant, childish behaviour he exists. Nobody's out to get him becuase the meanie republican got elected, we hate him becuase he's an abhorrent human being who has no place being in a position of power. He did all of this to himself by being racist, bigoted, ignorant,...

    Nintendo's success with the Switch both a blessing and a curse?

    in Gaming Discussion on 18 December 2019

    Nintendo has shown again and again that they are nothing like Sega and that they will find a way to survive and flourish regardless of how the way people play games changes. The fact is that Nintendo is successful for one reason and that is their focus on gaming. Enough people are attracted to the innovative approach to fun that Nintendo makes its focus in gaming. The more that Nintendo's...

    Starting a GBC collection. Looking for recommendations.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 August 2019

    Unfortunately, I doubt that many GBC carts (whose games require saving) are playable anymore unless you are willing to change out the save batteries. Even if you do change out the batteries, you will likely be back to having the same problem in another 8-10 years because the batteries just don't last that long.Unfortunately, GBC was the last Nintendo generation that didn't use flash memory for...

    This place is getting deserted, and we have to do something about it

    in Website Topics on 13 August 2019

    Given that the console wars really hit their peak in the 90's with the Genesis and SNES camps fighting it off, it is actually quite amazing to me that a website like this can still stake its existence on the idea of of brand loyalty and console sales in 2019. I think that it's amazing that the site is still going and is still fairly vibrant and that the concept of comparing console sales is even...

    Why can't Dems presidential hopefuls pull this much people for any of their rallys? <20,000+

On the contrary, the Dems get re-sounding...

    Wii or N64?

    curl-6 said: Illusion said: motion controls which were basically a fad Fads burn out quickly and disappear. Motion controls are still around 12+ years after the release of the Wii and show no sing of disappearing any time in the foreseeable future.

    Wii or N64?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 May 2019

    Oh no, you too? We already have colafitte telling us that motion controls are a fad because he wants it to be that way while ignoring every counter argument and evidence against this ridiculously false claim. It has elements of being a fad.  The N64 introduced force feedback and that was something similar.  Of course, every single game uses force feedback but that...

    Wii or N64?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 May 2019

    One of the things that made the N64 such a hit was that it was such a great party machine. It introduced 4 player multiplayer (in the modern context of today's consoles) and had some of the greatest multiplayer games of the generation: Goldeneye, Mario Kart, Mario Party(s), Mario Golf Super Smash Bros, etc... The reality is, though, that the Wii does everything that the N64 did in terms of...

    Switch Close to Passing Sales of N64 (UPDATE: Now Passed!)

    Reggie Fils-Aime Retiring, Doug Bowser to take over as new Nintendo of America President

    in Nintendo Discussion on 22 February 2019

    Reggie took Nintendo of America through very a prosperous as well as a very challenging era and I thought that he did well during both in terms of giving Nintendo a public face for the hardcore gamer crowd. He knew how to make fun of himself and step outside of being an office suit, which I do not really recall seeing from Nintendo before Reggie and Iwata. Reggie and Iwata really complimented...

    Update on Metroid Prime 4: Development restart. Retro Studios + Tanabe now working on it

    in Nintendo Discussion on 25 January 2019

    I think the good news that we can take from this is that Nintendo is finally committed to making a decent Metroid Prime game and that they learned their lesson from the Federation Force disaster. I think almost every Metroid fan out their would rather just not have another Metroid than have anything less than the best effort from Nintendo. To me, this broadcast indicates that Nintendo now...

    Regarding Nintendo Handhelds, was the Switch concept inevitable?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 January 2019

    I think that it is more of a response to smartphone gaming than the failure of the Wii U where Nintendo needed something to differentiate its handheld gaming experience. The docking feature does this very well. I am sure that if Nintendo could they would love to have kept their handheld and home console business separate. For over 2 decades Nintendo basically had a near monopoly in the...

    Great showing for the Switch. It's so nice to see Nintendo back on top even if it is just for a month. In the Wii U days, so many people were saying that Nintendo was finished in the home console business and if it were any other company, they would be. The Switch has got to be one of the most impressive turnarounds for a console developer in gaming history....
