This post right here pastes Nintendo in an entire new light for me. Part of the reason the Wii doesn't even get support is because Nintendo rejects it.....Ridiculous. And then we have Reggie bitching...

It's unfortunate that the game did not get more attention in America, hopefully its European release will be more successful.Shams, what do you think Nintendo could/should do to help these kind of games succeed on WiiWare?

    Nintendo 3DS Announced! (3D!!)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 23 March 2010

    Damn... what a day to stop visiting VG :(3D screens developed for handheld devices - 4 years ago:http://www.physorg.com/news78759680.htmlI figure this is the real deal.And I had it half right... was debating whether "3D" was the next 'gameplay' jump for Nintendo - but was thinking Wii. DS makes much more sense....

    I have Red Steel 2!

    in Nintendo Discussion on 18 March 2010

    Well, from the sounds of it heaps of people here have pirated the game. You had better ALL go out and buy a retail copy once it launches, or any excuse about "not wanting to wait" is poppycock.Its about time Nintendo released a patch which permanently, and intentionally bricks *every* Wii that has (or had) a pirate game ever played on it. I'll be ecstatic the day it happens 8>...

    (Rumor from GDC) DS specs- Bigger screens and Gamecube-like structure

    in Nintendo Discussion on 14 March 2010

    People are missing one important fact with this:Its been rumoured that Ninty had a portable GC running years ago - basically the next "GameBoy".Its the software that it runs internally that is important......because, if it is done properly it can effectively run GC software/games with no changes....Wouldn't it be nice to launch with a Wind Waker (sequel?), Luigi's Mansion, Metroid, Mario...

Then they'll start off the new financial year in April big time. Agreed, this is exactly what I was thinking. At this stage of the year, its all about meeting the FY projections - getting them as accurate as possible. I think they will start April...

We now have 5 difficulty levels within the main adventure part of the game (arcade mode stays at 3, but they were never really 'real' difficulty levels - just different starting levels). "Beginner" is a lot easier than "Easy", with the game running a...

    Why can't Nintendo just sue Sony for imitation?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 11 March 2010

    When is the last time Nintendo ever used a patent as an "offensive" weapon?In Nintendo's eyes, chasing other big companies is a waste of time and money. After all, Sony chasing Nintendo's market/movement controller idea just makes *Sony* look bad - and may bring even more customers over to the Wii.Push too hard, and Sony counter-sue with their patents - and it all gets very messy.Blatant...

    Should I buy the new DSi XL?

    CING files for bankruptcy (Hotel Dusk, Little King's Story)

    in Gaming Discussion on 07 March 2010

    I can't understand how a developer can rack up such big losses in a few years. They shouldn't do projects unless funded by publishers - or self publish. Doing anything else, is a recipe for failure.Sure, if you can't get projects signed... but these guys had big IP titles released, with more on the way....

    TheSource said: I've been trying to get our reviewers to get a review up for a while now but it keeps getting pushed back. No worries - I heard that someone was available to review the game (there must be lots of people on the review team with access to the US WiiWare catalog...). I know its not the most high profile game out there - but I hope someone has a chance to play and...

    I just got the USK rating for the game - the OFLC (Oz) & PEGI will take longer (weeks). Once I have them, I can complete the e-manuals and send them off for submission - then send the updated game off as well.Best case would be hitting WiiWare start of May - more realistically, I think the start of June. Fingers crossed!...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 March 2010

    Two more reviews out (since the OP), and its holding its average score of 8.3 - its actually moved up the WiiWare ratings (a couple of titles slipped down a point or two), and is just outside the top#5 at the moment :)Anyway - not like it matters, still only got the 2 reviews on Metacritic - I doubt Flowerworks will ever end up with enough reviews to show up on the main page (and only the weaker...
