Was there ever any update for the 3DS ambassador GBA games? There's no save feature on the emulators, right?

No to both, just a ROM dump.

You know what the worst thing about a drought is? That when it ends, you'll drown in games. I expect a September that is stuffed with four to five games that I am interested in. Retail-wise, I know of Hyrule Warriors and Shin Megami Tensei IV (okay, that's not physical in Europe, but you know what I mean). When it comes to eShop games, there should be at least one Mega Man and one new title.

I know what you mean, and never really understood why Summer (when kids are free all day, every day) is not filled with more releases. I get that Summer games don't sell as well, I just don't get WHY.

On the flip side, some of those September releases can be blazed through relatively quickly, like Mega Man. SMT IV will take quite some time, though... Surprised to hear you're getting Hyrule Warriors: I know you like brawlers, but I didn't take you for a Dynasty Warriors fan.

on 02 August 2014

I haven't played any Warriors game, but Hyrule Warriors has a lot of playable chicks. Besides, what else is coming out for the Wii U?

on 02 August 2014

Xenoblade! ...in 2015
And Splatoon! ...in 2015
And Wooly World!... in 2015
And Rainbow Curse! ...in 2015
And Treasure Tracker! ...in 2015 for you.
And Fire Emblem x SMT! ...in 2016
And of course Smash Bros! ....in 2015, according to illiterate trolls a.k.a. the gaming media.

Plenty of options.

You are such a troll, Noname.

I saw your post on my wall first now.



I haven't left the site entirely, but I've sort of reverted to just being a lurker. I can't exactly pinpoint the reason as to why I don't post anymore, and I was frankly quite shocked to see it's been nearly half a year since I last did.



I suppose that with there being fewer genuinely sales-oriented topics (I don't count the threads with people who go "WILD PREDICTION: The platform I like will sell 40 million in 2017!" as proper sales threads), there are fewer threads I'd naturally post in, but it's probably more me than that to be truthful.



I'll make an effort to post something next time an interesting thread pops up, though! Who knows, maybe I'll get a kick and return properly.

Looking forward to it! I know what you mean though: there's quite a bit of interesting sales data, but it's not what we're focusing on as much here anymore...

on 01 August 2014

Actually, I think that in a sense, the data is less interesting, too. The Wii/DS takeoff (which was happening around the time both of us joined) was something unprecedented. What could the future hold? It was certainly a very interesting time.

This generation lacks that tension. It could still come if one of the big 3 comes up with a great idea, but if they don't, it's looking very simple to guess the future. The Wii U, Vita and Xone as low to moderate successes, and the Ps4 and 3DS as moderate to high successes.

It's not interesting on the same level, and it doesn't spur the same debates.

If we had reliable data for mobile games, and genuine comparisons that could be made there, as well as people who claimed mobile gaming is superior (I find that there are nearly no mobile gaming enthusiasts here), then there could be plenty of interesting discussions.

on 01 August 2014

The drama that I see this generation comes from a couple of places.

First, will Microsoft stay in the gaming business? Some folks don't want to hear it, and it's far from a foregone conclusion, but their future participation is far from certain, and a repeat of the original XBox's performance wouldn't bode particularly well.

Second, and more particular to my heart, how does Nintendo respond to the massive screw-ups that they've made this generation? It's breathtaking to see how they went from doing no wrong to doing nothing but wrong, all in about three years. They've recently started saying the right things again, but talk is cheap: I'm eager to see what this QoL platform of theirs is like, and how their next systems will look going forward.

Third, the figures we're seeing show that mobile is gaining money, although it's ambiguous as to what sources are being included and where that money is going to. This one interests me the least, since I'm concluding that it's very much a matter of a dozen huge winners and hundreds of thousands of losers, but if the Doom Prophets of the past decade are ultimately right then the Future Is Mobileā„¢.

Not quite the same as the prior generation I'll grant you, but it's still got some human drama to keep things going.

on 02 August 2014

I agree, those are very interesting.

I don't think Microsoft wants to keep staying in the console industry. A large part of their problem recently is that they're spreading themselves too thin, without any cross-platform benefits. Ie, owning a Windows Phone doesn't make you want to own an Xbox One any more (or at least, to a much smaller extent than what for instance Apple is doing).

I think that if Microsoft had never made the Xbox, then their PC digital distribution service could have had a much better chance against Steam, simply because it would have gotten new, exclusive games to it.

Today, I think that if they'd made some absolutely brilliant games for the Windows Phone, that could also have helped them a lot there.

At the moment, they're just barely surviving in nearly all their endeavours - except for Windows and Office, which are obviously still doing great. But nothing else has really taken off, and that's because they're spreading too thin.


If Microsoft could manage to liquidate all their assets from the Xbox division and get out, I think they would. The problem is that they can't. Their investments so far are, if they drop out now, worth nearly nothing. It would be a massive loss. And they most likely still hope that it can be turned around into something that makes money at some point down the line.

It's possible that nearly all their investments into the Xbox division really are sunk, but that's a very hard thing to accept.

(I'll get to the other two points sometime in the future)

on 11 August 2014

I agree regarding Microsoft, and would add that the new leadership is publicly expressing lukewarm-at-best regard for the Xbox division. They seem to be focusing more and more on the latest white whale of cloud technology, and like you I have a hard time seeing where the Xbox brand fits into the future.

It's not something a lot of folks on this site want to hear, and it's amusing to see a handful of diehards insist that Microsoft will somehow throw its billions into keeping the brand afloat, but at the end of the day I'd argue that the threat the Xbox was created to defeat never really materialized, so it's time to pull out and move on.

I can foresee them spinning off the product and seeing if they can realize a return on their investment that way. I have a hard time seeing anyone stepping in to buy an appreciable amount of their assets. I'm also inclined to think this won't happen for another few years though: Microsoft has a history of letting products linger. See: Zune

I just updated the second post of last season's NFL thread with the final predictions. After the boring Super Bowl I totally forgot to finish the job.

Why I opened that thread today? Because it's that time of the year again! The new thread will go up during weekend. We gotta have a lot of catching up to do in regards to the chocoloco bullying.

Are we really "bullying"? Bullying is being mean for the sake of being mean. We're more correcting a wildly off course person before he drives himself off a metaphorical cliff. If you think about it, it'd be wrong of us NOT to do what we do!

The NFL Thread 2014: Prediction league sign-ups, plus discussing the divisions. Today: AFC East.

impertinence said: Dolphins should be threatening for a playoff spot but they won't. Great head coach and I think Tannehill is a decent quarterback, the defense is very solid, but how are they going to move the ball? Can't throw it to the tight end every down and no one else can run or catch the ball. Philbin's a great OC, and I'd welcome him back in a heartbeat, but I'm not...
