are you going to pokemon mystery dungeon: etrian odyssey edition?

Probably not. Randomly generated dungeons are lame.

So investors are on board, and kowenicki has a made a thread approving of the mobile thing.

Proof positive that this is the worst idea ever?

It didn't look like kowenicki understood Nintendo's motivation, so no, I don't think it's a bad idea.

Did you actually read Nintendo's announcement or are you relying on hearsay?

on 18 March 2015

Primarily hearsay, been busy. For what it's worth, I'm not freaking out about it myself, based on what I understand. I'm just reflexively ...hesitant... when I hear accolades from certain quarters.

on 18 March 2015

In a nutshell, Nintendo's stance hasn't changed much. They won't port any of their existing games to smartphones and they will be careful to not devalue Nintendo IP.

The significant difference is that what was previously assumed to be simple apps for smartphones will actually be simple games, but those will go hand in hand with a unified account system that encompasses dedicated Nintendo hardware as well as extends to smart devices and PCs. So there will not only be more exposure to Nintendo IPs, people can invest into Nintendo's ecosystem before they even own dedicated hardware (and if they don't buy Nintendo hardware, it won't hurt Nintendo either). The idea is that smart devices are not competing, but rather augmenting the world of Nintendo. Iwata likened them to TVs, so the equivalent of the old days would be TV shows based on Nintendo IPs.

And presumably DeNA is handling most of this development, I presume?

on 18 March 2015

Nintendo will handle the core of game development to ensure quality, DeNA will be mostly focused on the service side of things, such as post-launch support and all that.

But given that above all Nintendo doesn't want to devalue their IPs and their core business (dedicated hardware), it's hard to imagine that the games they develop would qualify as anything more than what gets launched on the eShop for $5. I can't imagine that those games will be capable of being substitutes for the software that is developed for Nintendo's hardware, because that is what Nintendo obviously wants to avoid. I am thinking it's going to be more along the lines of what Nintendo has included as minigames in various DS and 3DS titles, so simple stuff that can be played in very short bursts.

What reason do u have for not wanting Nintendo to unify their platforms?

in Nintendo Discussion 2 hours ago

First off, the price of the hardware (Wii U and 3DS) is a problem because Nintendo messed up badly. This could be rectified by not making braindead decisions for future hardware. Nevermind that people had no problem to put down $400 for a Wii and a DS, so price isn't really such a big issue as you make it out to be. Secondly, the reason why Nintendo should not entirely unify their platforms is...

Should Majora's Mask have been a GC launch title?

in Nintendo Discussion 3 hours ago

Given how Majora's Mask was received at its time ("It's not like Ocarina of Time, so it's stupid and I don't care."), it wouldn't have been that big of a deal as a GC launch title. There's the benefit of being a new Zelda game for a new system, but if the game fails to meet the expectations of the audience, it's not going to motivate said audience to buy a new system to play said game....

Because I am going to be able to play said game this year. I don't need more detailed information about something that is over a year away, because there is so much time left to give me said information....
