    Experiment: Comparing SSBU Series Reps vs Sales

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 04 February 2019

    Out of Curiosity, I thought I'd look at he series represented in Super Smash Bros Ultimate and see how they relate to the sales of their respective games. To clarify, I'm only including Nintendo series, and am also excluding Game & Watch due to the abnormal nature of that series. Also, I couldn't find any conclusive numbers for the Mario series, so I left it with a slightly outdated total of...

    Kirby: 8 inches or not? (WIP)

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 24 December 2018

    One of the more deceptively confusing aspects of the Kirby series is Kirby's size. Many sources report that Kirby is supposed to be 8 inches, or about 20 centimeters, but there is all sorts of information that seemingly contradicts this. The following is a recap of as much information I can find either supporting or challenging this. 8 Inches The best known source for the "8 inches"...

    ITT, we give subtitles to games that simply recycle titles

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 24 April 2018

    Sometime in the mid-00's, game publishers decided that instead of making new titles when they made new games in a series, they could just reuse the same title used by another game in the series. Now, sometimes reusing an old title can make sense. The game could be a reboot or a remake, or even the followup of a game from decades ago. But in general, this sort of thing leads to confusion. Like,...

    How Well will Bayonetta 2 sell on Switch?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 10 December 2017

    Bayonetta 2 is coming to Switch in February along with the original(!), which is good news for fans of the Switch and the Bayonetta series. But looking forward, I'm not sure how well the game will actually do on the Switch, all things considered.   Factors Helping Bayonetta 2 The Switch is much more popular than the Wii U was even at its height in late 2014, so plenty of Switch owners...

    Random Idea: The Switch in 2012 or 2013

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 19 October 2017

    I was looking back at the history of the Wii U, and began wondering why Nintendo didn't just release something like the Switch to immediately suceed the Wii. The more I thought about it, the more of an image came to mind. Looking at the Switch hardware, a lot of it had equivalents that would have been available back in the day. For example, instead of using the Tegra X1, a 2012-era Switch might...

    4 Popular Series You May Have Forgotten About

    in Sales Discussion, last active on on 08 July 2017

    On VGChartz, we occassionally discuss the sales figures of games. Which means that as a community, we tend to be a bit better informed about which games have sold better or worse over the years. So recently, after looking up what I thought was a fairly niche series, I was surprised to discover that it was a major hit with millions of sales. In No Particular Order   Jikkyou Powerful Pro...

    Rank Nintendo's post-SNES consoles for 3rd party support

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 04 June 2017

    Nintendo consoles have not been the platform of choice for third party support since the SNES, but a lot of arguments can be made about how well they've done at attracting third party support since then.    N64 Pros: Supported by Midway, Acclaim, THQ, Ubisoft, and Konami. Gems included Turok, Rayman 2, Harvest Moon 64, Space Station Silicon Valley, Wipeout 64, THQ's wrestling games,...

    What can a new Metroid be like?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 25 February 2017

    I, like most reasonable and decent people, have been longing for a new main series Metroid for close to a decade now. prime 3 was released nine and a half years ago, and Zero Mission, the most recent 2D Metroid, is 13 years old. Even if you liked Other M, the current hiatus is roughly on par with the one that came after Super Metroid. But for some reason, I can't find myself being THAT angry...

    Early Lineups: 3DS in 2011 vs Switch in 2017

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 25 February 2017

    Earlier, I wanted to make a comparison between the early lineups of the Wii U and Switch. But looking into the matter, I noticed that there are some interesting parallels to the 3DS. Its release date was also early in the year, and the Switch's early 3rd Party support seems at least as reminescent of early 3DS support as early Wii U support. Besides, I've heard people compare the two systems'...

    Nintendo Series across Region on 3DS & Wii U

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 19 November 2016

    Recently, I was looking at the sales of Nintendo games on the 3DS and Wii U, but realized that it was hard to tell at a glance which series had better sales in which region, and by extension which Nintendo series had regional vs worldwide appeal. Out of curiosity, I decided to make a spreadsheet to help analyze these sales. And I found some interesting results!   ...

    4 Bizzare ESRB Ratings

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 05 November 2016

    The ESRB is over two decades old, and has been affecting the sale of games. And it is nice to have a non-governmental body in charge of this, iin order to reduce the need for censorship. But sometimes, they have given some bizzare ratings. These can be both surprisingly acessible and unfairly restrictive.   Revelations: Persona (1996) Basics: The first in Atlus's Persona series of...

    6 Nintendo Games with Bad Titles

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 17 October 2016

    There are plenty of lists and retrospectives out there about the worst titles for games ever made. And there are plenty of terrible ones. Did you know that Spanky's Quest, Divine Divinity, Sticky Balls, Totally Rad, and Columns III: Revenge of Columns are all real official titles for real games? But it's easy to just focus on bad titles for games made by obscure developers back in the 80's. The...

    Whatever happened to the Racing genre?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 29 September 2016

    I don't know much about racing games, but looking back at the past few years, it seems like the genre has declined a lot since gens 5/6. Back in the mid-to-late 90's, Racing games were some of the biggest critical and commercial hits on consoles. On the PS1 and N64, you had the first two Gran Turismo games, other slightly realistic games like NASCAR and Colin McRae Rally, arcade styled games...

    Asking for Advice buying a New Laptop

    in General Discussion, last active on on 14 October 2016

    I've been using my current laptop for about six years now, and am currently looking into getting a new one. Since my personal aquaintances are not particularly tech savvy, I wanted to ask if anyone had any advice.   Notes I will want to play games on this laptop, but do not plan on making it my primary platform. I largely use my laptop for writing, spreadsheets, and similar tasks, and...

    Mario Franchise: Sales over Time

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 26 July 2016

    Using VGChartz data, I decided to look back at the sales of Mario games on Nintendo consoles and handhelds since the 1980's. This includes the main series of platformers, karting and sporting games, RPg's, puzzle games, and Luigi's Mansion. Although I excluded spinoff series like Donkey Kong, Yoshi, and Wario, and a few games lacked VGChartz data (Mario is Missing is missing), I still had 119...

    Anyone Else really like Sun/Moon's new Pokemon?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 17 July 2016

    Whether Pokemon Sun/Moon ends up being good or not is up in the air, but based on the 20 or so new species shown thus far, I think this generation has some very solid new Pokemon. You have a Legendary Space Lion that devours the Sun. A proper Lightning Bug (har har har). A simply designed yet distinct woodpecker. A nasty looking Fire/Poison type lizard that can poison anything. The...

    NX 2017 Lineup Predictions

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 08 May 2016

    Now that I've recovered, I'm starting to think about what Nintendo might be planning for the NX's first calendar year. They are obviously working on major unannounced projects for the platform, but things are weird considering the lack of information and mysterious nature of the machine. So here are some guesses as to what Nintendo could have planned for the NX in 2017, with reasons why I think...

    Anyone else imagine Superheroes as Mega Man Robot Masters?

    in General Discussion, last active on on 11 April 2016

    You know how in Mega Man, most of the Robot Masters have "Man" at the end of their names? Has anyone else heard people mentioning the names of comic book superheroes and started imagining them as 8-bit Mega Man boss fights? Bat Man - Defeating this Robot Master gives Mega Man the Bat Arang, a boomerang weapon that can retrieve distant items. Spider Man - Fights by swinging across the screen,...

Anyway, he and everyone else there got this memo yesterday, and his nephew was able to post it online! The page was taken down, but I saved the image. This guy has been correct tons of times before (he totally predicted that Pokemon would have a sequel back in 2014!), so I...
