    Is there a reason why people are still complaining about Nintendo supposedly "Not making new IPs"?

    in Nintendo Discussion 4 days ago

    We are not asking for new “IP” we are asking for new worlds. Can you remember stepping into the Mushroom Kingdom for the first time? Can you remember infiltrating your first alien planet in Metroid? Can you remember taking down a bogey on slippy’s tail? Can you remember Olimar reviewing his discoveries, marooned on a world of strange giants. By this standard, we must banish Labo and 1-2...

    Sony Interactive has no personality anymore

    Nintendo's game output is improving but still pathetic compared to Wii/DS era

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 October 2019

    I am with you, fine sir. Nintendo needs to pump out a few smaller games (at reasonable prices, none of this Link’s Awakening @full price crap), and they especially need to experiment with new IPs. I bet you are not a fan of Labo? That lineup actually produced 4 or 5 games, but I think it is “invisible” to many of us because we don’t want to go through the construction process and the software...

    Mario and Luigi RPG developers AlphaDream declare bankruptcy

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 October 2019

    If a big HD game is what killed them, I gotta say, that’s kind of fascinating: HD gaming, killing off small devs for 13 years. That said, tons of tiny indies have been pulling off HD games for a long time now, I would love to hear what “happened” over there. I guess maybe too many resources into remakes just prior to this project, too.... Hopefully Nintendo picks up the torch in some fashion. ...

    What Went Wrong? Wii U Edition

    in Nintendo Discussion on 27 September 2019

    I cannot quote on my iPad, but jumpin and rolstoppable covered most of the points. From the day of the revel you could see that Nintendo had rejected the exact premise of simplifying the controller and gaming in general that made the Wii a hit. How can you blame da casuals when the system wasn’t even made for them? One thing I would like to add is, Nintendo made a terrible misstep relying on...

    Rumor: Sony plans to launch the PS5 and PS5 Pro at the same time.

    in Sony Discussion on 26 September 2019

    I don’t like multiple personally, business-wise I question it at launch. It could work this time, but it didn’t seem to help Wii U or Xbox 360 particularly. Wild predictions: if this is true the cheap sku will be an internet-only console with lower specs and an assumption that the player will stream...or one sky will be portable to combat Switch. ...

    The Fall of Xbox - Video by Videogamedunkey

    in Microsoft Discussion on 20 September 2019

    I haven’t watched the video yet, but my 1 minute analysis of Microsoft Xbox one is: - focused too hard on set top box and Kinect advertising instead of games at the reveal - after about 1.5 years on the market, began retreating back to pc - now focused on cloud; next Xbox if it exists will be designed to serve cloud/game streaming, MS will focus on this battle 99% ...

    Battletoads Gamescom Gameplay (Looks God Awful!)

    in Microsoft Discussion on 23 August 2019

    Gameplay looks slow and easy-ish, but the art style is almost perfect as far as I am concerned. Makes more sense to me than a “realistic” tae l8ke killer instinct, we are talking about beating people with anvil fists and ram horn heads. ...

    How does the Switch's third party support stack up to other Nintendo handhelds?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 August 2019

    Darwinianevolution said: It's good, but it could be better. It's definitively shaping up to be a great library, but it still lacks the amount of big JRPGs the 3DS had, not to mention the sheer variety the GBA and certainly the DS had. It's at least better than the GB at this point. You are surely right, but as a casual JRPG fan, all I needed to hear was “Final Fantasy 7, 8, 9,...

    Bold Predition Achieved: Zelda has outsold Mario! (BotW vs. Odyssey)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 August 2019

    I think both games are pretty amazing in sales, I did not expect Odyssey to surpass 15 million based on past 3D Mario sales. I am not as surprised to see BOtW surpass Odyssey, Nintendo got it really right with that game.I believe those expecting BOTW 2 to cut the first game’s sales are right, but let’s not forget that it was a one minute teaser. I don’t expect it to release...

    Nintendo quarterly results (Switch 36.87 million)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 July 2019

    I guess I am eating crow, I never expected Odyssey to reach 15 million, 20 might even be within reach now. Also, senior moment: Super Mario Party sells 7 million and after 9 months, I can’t find a physical copy anywhere. You kids and your digital, consarnit, maybe I’ll have to try toys r us. ...

    in Politics Discussion on 21 June 2019

    When an interviewer asked Canadian comedian/political pundit Rick Mercer’s opinion on Trump he said (roughly) “He takes all the attention away from everything else, I wish we were talking more about Canadian politics.” Trump is an attention magnet. People who understood were warning the media during the primaries: all he had to do was Tweet something “stupid” at 3:30 AM and the entire news...

    New Business Model for console

    in Sales Discussion on 19 June 2019

    Do we have a source for console makers getting $20/game? I find it hard to believe. I think AAA publishers would rather pay fees bc it makes all the extra DLC crap look more reasonable. I am seeing many games trying for deluxe packs or “season passes” at $120-$200 Canadian. It already looks crazy as it adds 50% to 120% to the price, but it would look that much worse if the manufacturers...

    Rumour: Sony's PS5 is definitely more powerful than Microsoft Project Scarlett

    in Sony Discussion on 17 June 2019

    Instopped caring who was more powerful with Xbox 360 and PS3 and the difference becomes more irrelevant with each new gen as far as I am concerned. Everything looks amazing to me. Here is a different prediction: without knowing anything else about them, I believe PlayStation will be the clear sales winner. I don’t think Microsoft cares anymore, hence almost all their exclusive games appearing...

    Breath of the Wild 2 will take place in the same Hyrule.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 14 June 2019

    It is a concern, but it could be perfectly fine: Fill world up with new enemies Fill world up with caves / dungeons Update locations like Tarrytown and Hyrule castle and the divine beasts To me the world is big enough that I will hav3 forgotten most of it...in fact I think BOTW is too big and I hope there are more options for faster travel.

    Official Nintendo E3 2019 Thread!

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 June 2019

    I thought the first party content was kind of disappointing. Breath of the Wild 2 is nice, but at probably two years away give or take 8 months, and Animal Crossing only available in 2020 is not what I was hoping for. The Smash reveals were cool but how excited should we get for the chance to pay to add two more characters on the already gigantic roster? Is the mecha game first party.? I guess...
