What kind of edge has gotten into you ?

I mean, if it's not your thing, that's okay. But let's be honest, pretty much the majority has taken an interest on the game for what it looked like.

Also, this is a nice obvious Armored Core spiritual sucessor right there ! I would be surprised seeing anyone interested in the mecha genre not to be drooling on it.

I know that. Though if this is my ranking, why would I rank it based on other people's preferences rather than mine?

Well yeah I did use other people's preferences when it came to the seven FF games, but that was because I'm not educated enough on that matter to make a judgement myself.

Just asking to be more introspective,basically. I mean I don't like or have any interest in the Animal Crossing franchise but I can easily think about what the others feel about it to  know how valuable it's announcement was after the Direct.

Then what would even be the point of this thread, if everybody had to rate this being more introspective? All the scores would be the same, and the thread would be useless.

The point is to express your own opinion, not the consensus's. The consensus will show up by itself in the poll and when you read replies back to back.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

I loved this direct, 10 :)

The letdown:

Nintendo did a lot to create an image of a console for SONY and MS fans, and whatnot, and they have failed to bring anything more than ports, multiplats, but no real title to rival the best titles today and make it an exclusive.


Animal Crossing is a system seller, but it's mainly in Japan.

At end all comes to 3rd party not to Nintendo, and fact is that most of 3rd party thinks that Switch is more subtitle for last gen AAA ports, this gens AA and smaller games, than for this gens AAA games. I know you want new AAA 3rd party games and not ports of old, but power of Switch is that even ports/remasters of older great/strong games are making huge hype and making Switch even more desarible product.

With 3DS Animal Crossing is become big system seller even in West, on Switch will be even stronger and probably be best selling Animal Crossing game (15m) and huge system seller game.

It's not just  me who wants new games. 
When people buy a new system, they don't spend 300-400 dollars or euros to play old games or games that they can buy on their older systems.

" 3rd party thinks that Switch is more subtitle for last gen AAA ports"
It's not really a question of thinking, it's reality: Switch can't handle the top games. On some cases, like Doom and Wolfenstein, they can, due to the engine, but in most cases, Switch isn't getting more because it just can't.

Yet, that huge hype, as you call it, isn't translating into huge sales, is it? As the best selling 3rd party game happens to have Mario and company on it. A coincidence.
Also, the top 2 best selling 3rd party games (Skyrim, Fifa and Bomberman) were either revealed before/at launch or lanched with the system. Another coincidence?
As great as it is having hype on your side, it won't necessarily make a difference. 

AC sells a lot of SW? Yes.
Does it sell a lot of HW? Yes and no.
I checked sales for 3DS in Japan and the game helped sales a lot. Not just on launch, but also after (i checked 2 to 3 weeks, can't recall how many).
In the US and Europe, it did spike sales at launch, but the next week, sales took quite a dip (only checked 1 to 2 weeks).

So, is AC a system seller outsider Japan? Yes and no.

But that relly depends, plenty of people didnt played those all older great games or didnt had some older systems, and also now we have full handheld mode for those games even if people play them. If its true what are you saying and that on Switch want just brand new games, Switch wouldn't be so popular and so great sales, and games wouldn't had very good sales also, announcements like Dark Souls, Diablo 3, CiV6, Final Fantasy...wouldn't make such a hype among Nintendo base and Switch owners. Also if people only want to play just new games we wouldn't have on first place so much ports/remasters this gen on every platform out there.

You are again wrong, Switch can handle every current gen port, but question is how much those games would need to be cut back and if devs want to make and invest in that kind of game. Bethesda is willing to invest in those sort of games on Switch and thats why we have Doom, Wolfenstein 2 and Doom Eternal on Switch, point that plenty of games that are actually much more demading than those two games (Doom on XB1 most of time runs at 830p) still didn't announced for Switch doesnt mean that those games couldnt be ported on Switch.

Late and full priced ports are selling quite well if we have on mind that are late and full priced ports, for instance I can bet that FF games will sell much better on Switch compared to XB1.

AC moved tons of 3DS systems world wide, and it will be even bigger system seller on Switch because become very strong IP.

I loved the direct overall, the announcements of Animal Crossing, Luigis Mansion and Civ have me excited, but the online service brought it down a considerable amount for me. Cute little animations can only do so much to gloss over the fact that you have a barebones, borderline anti-consumer service at your hands, Nintendo. The only saving grace is that it's cheap.

I'm not saying that gamers only want new games when they buy their systems. I'm saying that's the reason. But there are others, of course.
There's nothing wrong in having ports or remasters. The problem comes when there's just so many in comparison to new games.

"You are again wrong, Switch can handle every current gen port, but question is how much those games would need to be cut back and if devs want to make and invest in that kind of game. "
If we follow that logic, then those games could also appear on NES. 
You can always butcher a game to a point where it can run on any system. But that's not what devs want. And that's exactly what Switch can't give them: a system that replicates that vision.

Off course ports do well on Switch. What new 3rd party games are they getting for Switch? Annoucements being made are, by a large margin, Indies and ports/remasters.
Give people the chance to have a PS4/XB1 library, and you'll how that hype will die down quickly.

Bethesda can do that because their engine is able to do that. Just like games made on UE4.
But when you have games that are not developed on UE4 or don't scale well enough/made on a proprietary engine, you see those games coming out faster for PS4 and XB1, than for  Switch.

Nintendo knew the risks. Like they knew the risks when developing the Wii.
For now, like in Wii's case, it's paying off, but the future is very uncertain. And just because won a battle, it doesn't mean it won the war.

I can't say with certainty that AC is that big in Europe and the US, as weekly sales tend to not completely back up that statement.
Even if it did, it wasn't as big as it was in Japan.



the first one i was excited for what i saw. 10 for me. cities skylines and NSMB did it for me. plus FF announcements were nice icing on the cake as well.
