    Why is snaking bad?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 20 June 2013

    So lets put this in simpler terms, there are three types of players in Mario Kart DS people who can't or don't snake, those who do but aren't good without it, and those who can and are good. For those who aren't very good they like snaking because it gives them an inherent advantage over others by simply having a level of tech skill. In brawl simply knowing how to chain grab with the ice climbers...

    Japan sales: M-Create & Famitsu & Dengeki - week 22 (May 27 - June 2 )

    in Sales Discussion on 07 June 2013

    With the exception of a number of 3DS games being up, this is a pretty typical slow week. Friend collection crossed the 1 million mark. Does that make it the 6th or 7th 3DS game to cross that point in japan alone? Wii U got a slight bump which is kind of weird....

    Frustrated with the Xbox One? Thatís okay, because Microsoft isnít building its next system for you

    in Microsoft Discussion on 22 May 2013

    The article who ok, but it could have been better. It is pretty obvious that the Xbox One is being geared towards gamers. The system is being geared towards Viacom, Netflix Inc, Google, Disney, Time Warner, EA, Activision, and so on. Almost every decision they have made with this system seems to be aimed at helping another big Corporation line their pockets so that they can line Microsofts...

    A Video Game Entertainment Curve

    in Gaming Discussion on 12 May 2013

    I don't understand why the fighting game guy is wearing an MLG shirt. I haven't seen any fighters on the MLG circuit besides Smash and Tekken. Their main game is Halo. As of lately they have League and Starcraft. Evo is more known for fighters. Anyway I guess it is kind of funny. Though most of the upper games can be enjoyed even at lower level of play. I usually enjoy the simpler beginning...

    Japan sales: Famitsu, MediaCreate & Dengeki Week 18 (golden week Apr 29 - May 05 )

    in Sales Discussion on 08 May 2013

    Pretty boring Golden Week. Only the 3DS recieved a notable hardware boost and even then the 3DS is still down from Last Year. I am a bit amused by the pseudo trinity that the 3DS has again. I wonder if Friend Collection for the 3DS will have legs like the DS version. Luigi's Mansion will likely hit 1 million in the fall. Run for the Money is approaching 500,000. Isn't Run for the Money a game...

    Japan sales: Famitsu, Media Create & Dengeki - Week 16 ( Apr 15 - Apr 21 )

    in Sales Discussion on 24 April 2013

    Vita for the most part even. I figured the week before Golden week would see a slight dip or no drop hardware wise with the exception of the 3DS of course. Really good opening for Tomodachi, I just wish the 3DS boost was larger. Lets hope the 3DS stays strong through Golden week. Vita seems to be approaching a baseline. I would say the Vita likely has a baseline of 11k to 13k. We will have to see...

    Vita vs 3DS: an economics look at demand and elasticity

    in Sales Discussion on 14 April 2013

    I certainly don't mean to self promote. However, I feel this would be an interesting topic point. During my reading of the Famitsu top30 I noticed that the Vita and the 3DS had fluctuating sales around the time of the pricecut. As a fun little project I wanted to see if I could use elasticity to prove that the two were competitors. The results were not what I expected but certainly not...

    Japan sales: Famitsu & Media create - Week 14 ( April 1-7)

    in Sales Discussion on 14 April 2013

    The universal drop in hardware sales is pretty depressing. Software isn't much better. Good to see Luigi on top. Way to go Taiko and Dragon Ball Heroes moving your way up the charts. Mario Kart 7 and New Super Mario Bros both hit two million this week. I have to laugh at Razor's Edge bombing on another system....

    Japan sales: Famitsu & Media create - Week 13 ( March 25-31)

    in Sales Discussion on 03 April 2013

    Good to see the Wii U getting a boost despite a poor showing in its newly released software. Animal Crossing continuing to do amazingly. I also find the Luigi's Mansion 2 had a fairly decent hold for its second week. With a decent set of legs, Luigi's Mansion could cross 1 million. Dragon Quest X is lower than expected but certainly the number is reasonable give the circumstance. Game and Wario...

    Japan sales: Famitsu & Media create - Week 11 ( Mar 11 - Mar 17 )

    in Sales Discussion on 20 March 2013

    It is good to see the 3DS up from last week. Vita is down by quite a bit seems the pricecut and software boost is starting to fade away. The real question is what will the Vita's baseline be. I am hoping that it can hover around 15 to 20k. Soul Sacrifice dropped quite a bit but it could have been worse. Nice opening for Kingdom Hearts Remix....

    Japan sales: Famitsu & Media Create - week 8 ( Feb. 18 - 24 )

    in Sales Discussion on 27 February 2013

    Wow I figured it would be the lowest week ever for the Vita. I guess retailers decided to drop the price a little early. I figured the Wii U would drop below 10k. On one end Nintendo is dominating Japan and on the other it is failing. DQ7 continuing to do well. Animal Crossing hit the 3 million mark....

    Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX coming to NA/EU this fall

    in Sony Discussion on 26 February 2013

    That is pretty cool. Good to see we are finally getting Final Mix. Seems like a pretty complete package to me. Personally though I kind of wish they would remake Chain of Memories for a handheld. The limited amount of space provide in the arena style encounters, made the card system really shine. Dodging was a difficult task so often good card planning helped keep you from getting destroyed. With...

    pezus said:Does anyone know the digital cards vs. bought digitally split? That's the real figure we should be looking at for digital sales. Didn't famitsu or MC track the cards and if so, we could possibly figure out from there how many have bought it online?   Famitsu tracks the download cards as well as retail copies. Media Create only tracks retail copies. Media Create has...

    With the Wii U now out and the Orbis and Durango looking to release this year or next, many gamers are having concerns about the future of gaming. Every consumer has different values and things they find important for a console. What do you find important for a console to be a worthwhile purchase? What move or actions would cause you to forgo such a purchase? Are there any actions that would...

    Analyst WiiU GameStop sales below expectations

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 January 2013

    This is only slightly better than the GAF topic. Seriously, this is just to get views for article writers and reactions out of enthusiast. We have no idea what said anaylst expectations were nor do we know the numbers he is referring to. It could very well be that the Wii U is doing well and his expectations are too high. It could be doing incredibly poorly. NPD and the Japanese Data suggest that...
