    in Sales Discussion, last active on on 12 November 2015

      http://steamspy.com/app/351970 According to steam spy Tales of Zestria is around 85,000 and it launched on October 19.  It will probably be fairly close to around 100,000 sales within a month.  Considering how JRPG's are afairly new genre on Steam, would you consider that a success?  How do you think it will compare to NA and EU PS4 numbers?   I'm actually quite...

    Anyone Playing Pokemon Shuffle for Mobile?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 01 September 2015

    Just picked it up as I skipped it on my 3DS due to the fact I don't bring my 3DS many places.  I'm really liking it so far and the game seems pretty well designed (except for that dam wobuffet jumping out of my 85% capture rate great ball).  Looks like it has over 100,000 downloads on android in the first day which has to be considered a success for a port.   ...

    Wii Fit U sells under 20k in U.S. for January

      http://www.gonintendo.com/s/222552-unconfirmed-wii-fit-u-sells-under-20k-in-u-s-for-january It appears the source is from Neogaf (so obviously it's unconfirmed).  They were able to conclude that Wii Fit U < 20k.  So that's very dissapointing numbers if true.  But to be honest what did Nintendo expect, they way they have handled Wii Sports Club and Wii Fit U with little...

    in General Discussion, last active on on 28 November 2012

    So I decided to google VGChartz to find the first forum topic that pulled up in the results  (I was bored and procastinating).  What I found was something a lot more interesting. I looked through the first 5-7 pages of google results and to my surprise is quite a few of the search results were negative articles about VGChartz.
