    I stand corrected. And holy crap, Mario Odyssey might just make me buy a Switch, looks magnificent.

    Expecting a dull E3 since Nintendo say they're only doing 2017 games

    Expected negativity since you are curl-6.

    on 08 June 2017

    Well how many new big surprises can there really be for 2017 when we already know about Mario Odyssey, Fire Emblem Warriors, Mario x Rabbids, Splatoon 2, Pokken DX, etc?

    on 08 June 2017

    Well, then you be more easily surprised I hope. I don't really know what to expect but I don't think is gonna be dull.

    So MK8D was not going to move many Switch units uh? :P

    It was selling out as soon as it hit shelves anyway, the boost could've just been due to the restock around the same time ;)

    on 05 June 2017

    Your stuborness latlely is somthing else xD

    on 05 June 2017

    The way I see it, at this point Switch's sales are pretty much determined by one thing; how many Nintendo can ship. If they can make 150k available, it will sell 150k, if they can make 300k available, it'll sell 300k. Under these circumstances it's pretty much impossible to measure the impact of any one game since hardware demand is already way outstripping supply.

    on 05 June 2017

    The game sold 1.2 fucking milions in a week Curl, the console went up to win Ps4 even on Europe

    on 05 June 2017

    There was a big restock at the same time though:

    http://gonintendo.com/stories/279027-nintendo-ny-to-have-switch-stock-starting-tomorrow

    I think the more important point is, MK8 didn't NEED to be a system seller. I'll happily admit that I was wrong about Switch needing a major new release in April, demand for it was sky high anyway.

    on 05 June 2017

    But it was a system seller, the proiblem is we cannot see how BIG of a system seller was because of stock issues. Since the game is out I have started to see more and more people with Switches and talking about them, even the whole Barcelona club lol
    Mk8D sold twice as MK8 on the same time, knowing how many consoles Mk8 sold I'm sure this sold a lot of them too.

    on 05 June 2017

    Twice as much? Didn't they both sell just over 1 million first week?

    on 06 June 2017

    Sorry I was distracted, I meant Switch sold more than twice what WiiU sold when Mk8 was released, and that gave the console a 300% of bump, now Mk8D has sold more than Mk8 on its first week despite the years, I'm sure many people has bought the console because of it, just like happened with the original.

    on 06 June 2017

    Well, Switch is much more attractive hardware than the Wii U, and demand for it was already through the roof when MK8 arrived, while on Wii U it was a game lots of people wanted on a system nobody wanted

    Just finished DMC 2013. Excellent game.

    It is, gameplay is fantastic from beggining to end and it looks great. The hate is undeserved.

    Best story in a Nintendo developed game

    mZuzek said: curl-6 said: Exactly, it all unfolded very elegantly without ever feeling forced. Add in likeable characters and a degree of thematic depth you just don't see in other Nintendo games, and it wins by a landslide in my book. If XB2's story is even close to as good, (which I hope it is, though I'm not holding my breat as XCX was a letdown in the narrative department) I'll...

    Vini256 said: I still need to play Xenoblade someday. Will be getting 2 for sure though, it'll be my first Xenoblade game. Unless you hate JRPGs, you owe it to yourself to play Xenoblade Chronicles ASAP, it's a truly amazing game. Why not play it now to get yourself prepped for XB2 since it's still a few months off? :p caffeinade said: curl-6 said: My vote as well....

    mZuzek said: As for Prime 4, honestly I don't want a character driven story. I don't want Metroid to ever have character driven stories Agreed. The core strength of the series is isolation and atmosphere, dialogue and traditional storytelling get in the way and break the mood....

    Bet with ExplodingBlock: Zelda U will not be Wii U exclusive (He says it will)
