That's my friend code. I am confident that I can beat you in an one on one race every single time, probably with ease. Feel free to prove me wrong.


I don't have MK Wii.  So I can't fight you right now.

"Let's say there are 2 bags of money. The hardcore bag and the casual bag. Let's say the hardcore bag is 1 million and the casual bag is 10 million. What do you grab? 1 million, 10 million, or 11 million?"

Lol so less than 10% of games will be made for hardcore? Weak.

 Ok let me try this again:

 

Let's say you get 50 hardcore games a year, every single year, like clockwork.

Then there's a gaming revolution and a new market appears, worth a gazillion dollars.

Now you get 500 casual games, 500 non-games, 500 party games, and 500 "trumped up tech demos" per year.

The whole industry booms during this period.

Now you get 60 hardcore games a year.

Why would you complain?

 

You think TakeTwo is gonna cancel GTA and start making Grand Theft Mario Party?

You are still a target demographic.  You are still worth money.  You will still get games.

The only thing changing will be your diet.  'Cuz it's gonna be a whole mess of CROOOOOOOOOOW.

 


Nintendo has gone casual and killed MK I believe that is what I said.  This is a sign of things to come.  Why bring GTA into this?  Is GTA going to the wii?

I don't know what you're getting at with your movie comments psrock but they seem to be the complete opposite about your gaming comments.

The Blair Witch Project was a movie which cost (roughly) $30,000 to make and grossed over $100,000,000 in theaters; so in other words, in many ways this movie was exactly like Mario and Sonic at the Olympics in that it was low budget and still had high revenues. Your argument was that publishers would abandon their high budget projects (similar to big budget blockbuster movies) in the face of such high profitability, which from movies (and what we have seen in the videogame industry) seems amazingly unlikely.

You attempt to deflect this argument by pointing out that (for the most part) big budget blockbuster movies are crap ... I've got a peice of information for you, big budget videogames (for the most part) are crap! Mobile Sut Gundam: Crossfire, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, Lair, Genji: Days of the Blade, and BlackSite: Area 51 all had very large budgets and were all very bad games.

The fact is these big budget games, much like movies, continue to be announced for the PS3 and XBox 360 every day even though they will probably be pretty bad and sell pretty poorly anyways. So how has Mario and Sonic at the Olympics or the Wii in general hurt the big budget games?

 


 No don't compare Blair Witch Project to Mario and Sonic.  Mario is the biggest name in gaming his face was on the game of course it will sell.  Blair Witch had nothing it was a true success story.

I don't think that you would have put up much of a fight anyway. But please stop trolling Mario Kart Wii.


Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I'm not trolling. I was playing it on launch day and nobody was winning more than 3 times in a row. Nintendo even said themselves noobs will be able to keep up with MK veterans.

I thought Wii was already getting a generic FPS (The Conduit) to please the "hardcore". And now there's gratuitous violence in MadWorld for all you Manhunt fans (as if Manhunt 2 wasn't enough).



Aurally examine my music!

Wear gaudy colours or avoid display. It's all the same.

Be warned, I will use walls of polysyllables and complex clauses as a defence against lucid argument.

Wand to read a creepy thread?

psrock: I don't know how much better this is going to make you feel, but you've made excellent progress.

* Denial (Wii can't compete with the HD consoles! Nintendo is a laughing stock!)
* Anger (Why do all these idiots keep buying the Wii!?!)
* Bargaining (Wii is competing in a different market! We can all live happily together!)
* Depression (Nintendo has ruined gaming! I blame WiiFit! I don't care anymore!)
* Acceptance (Where can I buy a Wii?)

You might have spent quite a while in denial, but blazed through anger and bargaining almost instantaneously, and are handling depression in a very constructive manner. The last part is no easier than the earlier ones, but you'll be in the clear after this.

I just wanted to know that we're here for you.

I think that was the point, from what i've heard.

With the new Mario Kart, it doesn't matter whether your 'skillfull' or not, 'cos the entire game has been dumbed down.

You're also punished for being too good. Winning is almost a matter of chance now.

You didn't get Rol's point. He is skilled, and he almost always wins. This proves that skill is the biggest factor in the game, unlike what the non-skilled folks say (including many reviewers). Just ask the people who play every week in the VGChartz championships. If you still doubt it, you can of course play Rol or another 9000+ (or even 8000+) ranked player, and then you'll see.

Personally speaking, my rank is around 6500, and I can already see why skill is the biggest factor in this game. When you first start playing, it can often seem that it's too random, but that's just because you haven't gotten used to the game yet.

 Rol (apparently, i haven't had the pleasure yet) beats everyone he verses, it can't be luck.. thats the point he was making.. how can he always beat you if its completely based on luck?
