    Famitsu Sales: W6, 2020 (Feb 03 - Feb 09)

    in Sales Discussion on 12 February 2020

    Nintendo has been able to broaden the appeal of the Switch, so the great sales make sense. I'm not sure why some had this discussion in the first place but these numbers show that Nintendo can't just bank on hardcore gamers for their success. Games like Ring Fit, Brain Training and soon Animal Crossing have mass market appeal and help to lift sales of the system. Only targeting male gamers from...

    Do you like Super Mario Sunshine?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 February 2020

    Yes, I do. I got a cold shortly after buying the game back in, what, 2002? I remember playing Sunshine and feeling pretty well despite the cold. Sunshine is a good game, although it has a lot of flaws. The controls are probably the best in any 3D Mario game, apart from the underwater controls. Mario moves quickly and everything feels very responsive. I also like the theming: A sunny island is...

    Nintendo Quarterly Results (Switch 52.48m, Pokemon 16m)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 January 2020

    KingofTrolls said: Switch's launch price was already 100$ lower than PS4 Amateur, and Lite is even more cheaper. Moreover, basically a half of Switch's sales, in some years more than a half, is done in Christmas/Black Friday period, while PS4 is closer to 35%. What is happening right now, with Sony still not cutting prices and limits the amount of units with discounts...

    Nintendo Quarterly Results (Switch 52.48m, Pokemon 16m)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 January 2020

    Amazing sales all around! Mario Kart looks set to cross the 30m lifetime mark after this quarter. Breath of the Wild should cross 20m, even if the sequel will be here by late 2020. Smash, Pokémon, Mario will cross the 20m mark as well.  This reminds me of the Wii and DS days when Nintendo's titles sold insane numbers for years and years. And Switch hardware will easily...

    Game of the decade: 2000s (2000-2009)

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 January 2020

    Wow, that's really hard. The 2000s were the time when I gamed the most and some titles that stood out back then didn't hold up as well as I anticipated. Today, I'd argue the best games were also often the ones that changed the industry the most. Let's see... - GTA III is definitely a contender. This was the game that really started the 3D sandbox trend and it's still a fun title today. - Wii...

    Tinder worth paying for?

    in NSFW Discussion on 15 January 2020

    You are probably more attractive than you think. In my experience online dating is a bit lopsided: The only thing you have to go by is looks and a few sentences in a profile. Men are visual creatures so we are easily swayed by a beautiful face. Also, there's the expectation for the man to take the initiative. The result of this is that women feel they are being chased by dozens, even hundreds of...

    The greatest loser; which console that lost its gen in sales do you love most?

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 November 2019

    Hard question! It's funny, when I think back it's definitely the N64 as I adored that console and was so hyped playing Mario 64, Starfox and the two Zeldas. But it could also be the Gamecube for me. I have fond memories playing Mario Sunshine when I was ill and stayed home for a week. The PSP was also amazing. I got a PSP Go late in the console's life cycle for 99€ with 10 free games....

    Famitsu Sales: W44, 2019 (Oct 28 - Nov 03)

    in Sales Discussion on 08 November 2019

    So, Ring Fit Adventure is following the trajectory we saw with many casual / mass market games during the Wii/DS era: Relatively slow start but strong sales for weeks afterwards due to word of mouth. According to Iwata back then, the casual games mostly started selling hardware around 6 weeks after their release if I remember correctly. That means Ring Fit Adventure could boost Switch hardware...

    Brain Training for Switch announced

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 September 2019

    Soundwave said: The 3DS Brain Training flopped hard. People have moved on. There are a million of these types of things available on phones for $0.  I figured you would say that but as I've been telling you since these discussions began, the Switch cannot become wildly successful without the mass market customers on board. For the holiday season we have Pokémon, Ring...

    Dragon Quest XI S reviews: Meta 90, OC 91

    in Nintendo Discussion on 28 September 2019

    Don't know why people are complaining about the score. Switch owners got the definitive version of the game and things like better soundtrack, more content and speedier battles (thank god!) are way more important than resolution. Why the complaints? If this version released on PS4 I'd be perfectly fine with it scoring higher than the original release and I'd be happy for PS4 owners that they can...

    Should we ban older films for being too offensive? (The satire "The Last Temptation of Christ" - 1988)

    Nintendo Direct Announced September 4th 2019 @3pm PT/6pm ET

    in Nintendo Discussion on 05 September 2019

    Some good announcements.  - SNES games are nice, but to be honest they are not much fresher than NES titles. They've been getting rereleased since the Wii days. But I'm not going to complain, it's nice to have A Link to the Past and some other games on the Switch. - Assassin's Creed 4 is the only game in the series since 2 that looked interesting to me... maybe I'll get it. - Xenoblade is...

    New Staff Writers Wanted [Applications Now Closed]

    in Website Topics on 24 July 2019

    This sounds interesting and I wish you great luck in finding good writers! A few questions of my own: Do you use a wordpress-based CMS to submit content? Is there a minimum requirement for the number of articles / words / characters one has to write in a given week or month? Are there any guidelines regarding minimum / maximum word count and media integration (a minimum / maximum number of...

    Are Nintendo games held to an unrealistic standard?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 22 July 2019

    The problem with games like Pikmin is that they are high budget titles but don't sell well and don't sell hardware. That's why Nintendo shouldn't focus too much on them. A Pikmin 1-3 collection for Switch, made by a third party developer? Sure, I'll take it. But putting years of effort and millions of dollars into Pikmin 4 just for it to sell 1.5 million units? They could spend their money and...

    Upgraded Switch model announced: Same price, battery life of 4.5 to 9 hours - Launches in August (Americas, Japan) and September (Others)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 17 July 2019

    Oh, this is tempting. And the new Joy-Con colors as well. My Switch is perfectly fine as it is but better battery life would entice me to bring it with me more often. Maybe 64GB of internal storage, Nintendo? On a less personal level it is great to see that Nintendo is continually trying to evolve the platform. It irked me back in the Wii days that they never updated the console (well, they...

    Super Mario Maker 2: Are you a Maker?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 18 May 2019

    Creating levels is the best part of the game for me, but I know most people want to consume and not create of course - that's what game developers are there for after all. I enjoy creating stages and letting my friends play them, looking at their reactions, at what works and what doesn't. I'd love to create my own Jump 'n' Run at some point. Mario Maker 1 had too many strange and super hard...
