    What should Nintendo have done instead of Wii U?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 December 2019

    I agree with what most people have said already, but I think the thing that really put the Wii U beyond any hope of recovery was the hardware choices. They could have recovered from the confusion over the name (which, as many people seem to forget nowadays, they did with the 3DS), and possibly even gotten away with producing a gamepad-less version, but when the basic system architecture was so...

    haxxiy said: Domestic only, though, which makes the original trilogy uniquely strong in this comparison since it grossed 50% - 60% there. But even adjusting for inflation makes up for a poor metric since that takes into account average ticket price, but blockbusters nowadays are so much more oriented toward full price weekends, premium screenings, 3D etc. than the average. Either way, I...

    Tracking The Rise (Or Fall?) of Skywalker

    in Movies Discussion on 29 December 2019

    Okay, I won't actually be seeing The Rise of Skywalker until tomorrow night, so I can't claim anything with regards to its quality or what it does or doesn't retcon from The Last Jedi. However... thismeintiel said: I suggest you get up with Disney, then.  Tell them to stop looking at it as a disappointment that needed to be retconned and made fun of.  They're just the ones that...

    Tracking The Rise (Or Fall?) of Skywalker

    in Movies Discussion on 28 December 2019

    All this talk of The Last Jedi somehow being this massive financial disappointment is doubly hilarious to someone who still has vivid memories of Star Trek: Nemesis failing to defeat one of J-Lo's lesser romcoms in its opening weekend, and then experiencing what at the time was the absolute worst second weekend of any major movie release in history. And people want to crow about how The Last Jedi...

    haxxiy said: To land below Rogue One in the box office in the end could potentially - although we'll never have more than rough estimates for this, considering studios don't divulge the number of tickets sold - make ROS match or go under AOTC as the least watched of all the nine Star Wars movies. Adjusted for inflation, AOTC's gross works out to about $925m. I think ROS should finish...

    When including international territories, Rise of Skywalker's opening weekend was about $373m worldwide. Meaning that it didn't [i]quite[/i] outgross the entire theatrical run of Solo ($392m worldwide) in its opening weekend, but it wasn't far off - and its rest-of-world gross ($198m) is already above Solo's ($179m). ...

    thismeintiel said: Well, at least we can put away the silly argument that was franchise fatigue. We can also put away the silly argument that Solo's poor performance was purely the result of fans boycotting the movie over The Last Jedi, and that the fact that it was released up against Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool 2 had absolutely nothing to do with it. ...

    The greatest loser; which console that lost its gen in sales do you love most?

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 November 2019

    Either the Nintendo 64 or the Xbox 360. The former for its amazing line-up of exclusives, and the latter for being probably the best all-around console from its generation. Honourable mention also to the Wii U; I've made no secret that I consider it to be probably the worst-designed console from any major manufacturer, but I can't deny that it had a great game line-up, and the off-TV...

    in Politics Discussion on 22 October 2019

    While the Conservatives were probably hurt by things outside of their control - Doug Ford tanking their popularity in Ontario, the Bloc's unexpected comeback - I think Andrew Scheer really screwed this campaign up. It often felt like he was more concerned with neutralizing the People's Party than tackling the Liberals head-on. Gotta feel for the NDP as well. When you look past the fact that...

    I think the same thing's going to happen as happened with Trudeau's father - he'll lose his majority, but be able to fall back on the NDP (and/or the Greens, if they win enough seats to make any difference) to stay in power. Scheer might get close to, even slightly ahead of him in seat counts, but the Bloc aren't going to prop up a Conservative government, and unless the polls are hilariously...

    I think it's one of those things that comes in peaks and troughs over the years. Yes, nowadays the slightest hint of any bigotry from a person can be leapt on and used to ruin them... but I don't think that's a whole lot different to how in the 1950s (and arguably even as late as the 1980s) saying that you thought the Communists might have a good idea or two was a good way of instantly losing...

    Least liked console from each of the big 3 and why

    in Gaming Discussion on 08 August 2019

    Nintendo: Wii U. Actually a close call between this and (please don't hurt me) the Gamecube, as both systems had an 18-month spell with tons of great games, and then absolutely nothing. However, the Gamecube was at least a well-designed system that was never going to have any prayer of competing against the juggernaut that was the PS2; by contrast, from a pure hardware design standpoint the Wii U...

    How did AMD make Zen 2 faster?

Right now, Intel are getting absolutely slaughtered in the server arena, and are able to compete in a few desktop situations but on the whole are behind, with their main saving grace being a mobile CPU design that looks to have a lot of potential if they can get it...

    Are there any years worse for Nintendo than 2015 and 2016?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 July 2019

    TheMisterManGuy said: I terms of the 3DS, I'd say Nintendo also made the mistake of assuming third parties and developers will blindly trust them with the 3DS because of its predecessor's pedigree, so they decided to cut corners on Launch titles, so that third parties can take the spotlight. But when it became apparent that third parties didn't have much ready either due to them still...

    Any news for future Ace Attorney stuff

    in Gaming Discussion on 26 June 2019

    Unfortunately, I think the Ace Attorney series is pretty much dead at this point; Spirit of Justice apparently only barely broken even, and Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2 was a colossal bomb. There'll very likely be an HD re-release of Apollo Justice at some point, as they already remade all the artwork for the iOS/Android release, and maybe an HD remaster of Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice, but...

    Digital Foundry Analysis: In Theory: The Witcher 3 on Switch - Is A Port Actually Possible?

    in Gaming Discussion on 06 June 2019

    Part of me wonders whether it's actually The Witcher II which is being ported to the Switch, and it's being misreported as III. Considering that II already has a 360 port, it'd probably be easy to bump its resolution up to 1080p, maybe make a few other graphical improvements, and slap it on the Switch. (Then again, they said the same thing about Saint's Row the Third, and look how that turned...
