    Nintendo is bragging about their high quality games :P

    in Nintendo Discussion on 19 December 2014

    Definitely a lot more interesting than watching the pissing matches everywhere else that brag about sales figures that are ultimately hollow due to narrowing profit margins. Well, at least when other companies aren't busy making smear campaigns against each other due to said thinning profit margins and insecurities about their place in the world....

    Bloomber article: Sony Shareholders Have Too Much Patience

    in Sony Discussion on 23 October 2014

    reading that article, all I could think was "Is this guy mad at getting bad sushi or something?" because I'm not reminded of a hardbiting critic so much as I am an ethnocentric Japanophobe....

    Was going after the casual crowd a bad strategy for Nintendo last gen?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 19 October 2014

    no, they were pretty much the only gaming company to exit the last generation in the black as opposed to everyone else who encountered massive losses in one form or another or outright went bankrupt. People keep bringing up this "it tainted their image" argument, but we all know that's a lie. People were more than gleefully eager to launch smear campaigns against Nintendo even before the Wii....

    Why would Nintendo make another Console after so many failed attempts?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 28 September 2014

    I'm reminded of people who have a meltdown every time a toilet clogs up. Seriously, Nintendo has repeatedly stressed that the day they leave consoles is the day they leave gaming. And that is impossible. Time to accept reality and realize Nintendo will never, ever go away. Moving on....

    OPINION: Nintendo needs to change their home console brand

    Digital Foundry: Hands-on with Bayonetta 2

    in Nintendo Discussion on 14 September 2014

    Every time I see Digital Foundry mentioned all I can think is "Oh, so it's time for the gaming equivalent of the Deadliest Warrior." Seriously, these guys remind of the "experts" they had on that show who were probably just running results by playing Civilization. Their methods are sloppy, they clearly don't have equipment that is any good (mostly because such stuff would cost too much), and most...

    Xenogears Vs Xenosaga Vs Xenoblade Chronicles

    in Gaming Discussion on 09 September 2014

    Xenogears; Blade has interesting characters, a good plot, and an interesting world to explore, but they don't hold a candle to the intricate plot and complex characters of Gears. Saga I have too many words for, so I'll get to the point: wasted potential. There is a better game IN the series, but unfortunately it's dragged down by them never figuring out what they wanted for the battle system...

    Pachter: "There is no place for Nintendo hardware". Thoughts?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 September 2014

Next time anybody has an urge to post something from him, take a deep breath, step away from the keyboard, and erase any thought of him from your head. We do not need such trash in the industry.

    Rumour: Infighting in Nintendo Management Leads to Scheming to Get Rid of Iwata

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 August 2014

    ...why is this thread back up? Seriously, are people THAT desperate for something to do that we've resorted to this? Okay, guys, the story is bogus. Not because of the above theory of it being Neogaf-manufactured, but because it makes no goddamned sense, messes up basic facts, and clearly has no idea how a business works. Firstly: Yamauchi was not Nintendo's founder. He was the 3rd president...

    Nintendo Believes Third Party Developers Will Come Back To The Wii U If Sales Increase

    in Nintendo Discussion on 19 June 2014

    I think about it this way: quite a few 3rd parties didn't come back despite the 3DS doing fine. EA, Ubisoft, 2K, etc haven't released anything worth a damn, if at all, for the system at all despite them constantly complaining about shrinking profit margins and the 3DS having an install base of 40 MILLION and growing. So, what sort of business sense does it make to ignore a userbase that huge?...

    I hate to say it, but Starfox Wii U sounds like the next Lair

    in Nintendo Discussion on 14 June 2014

    I know that not having people turning Nintendo into a soap opera is a bit weird due to how badly they steamrolled everyone at E3, but this is REALLY reaching. It sounds like a Kid Icarus thing; an unconventional control scheme, but once you acclimate to it then it's indispensable....

    Will Third Parties Return to Wii U If It Sells or Reaches 12 Million by 2015?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 23 May 2014

    Did they return when the DS, Wii, and 3DS proved that Nintendo wasn't going anywhere? No? Then there's your answer. If 3rd parties have made a stupid decision thrice in a row I doubt they're going to suddenly become logical with the Wii U....

    Nintendo needs more western studios and more original western IPs to appeal to the west.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 21 May 2014

    Considering how the Western dev scene has studios closing every other week due to the fact that they can't seem to manage themselves properly, it's not in Nintendo's best interests to do that. Why waste money on companies that clearly aren't disciplined or skilled enough to be trusted?...

    Is Iwata about to lose his job?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 21 May 2014

    No, because that's completely impossible. Shareholders have next to no power in Japanese business and the Board of Directors is for the sake of the president, not the shareholders. It amazes me how people try to talk business and then clearly show they've never done any actual research; they just spout things from dubious sources....

    Why is it hard to believe that third parties are biased against Nintendo?

    in Gaming Discussion on 26 April 2014

    y'know, every time I hear people bring up "business" in these kind of threads, a couple red flags pop into my head. 1. Why would you NOT want your games to be on as many platforms as possible? Doesn't having more platforms and thus potentially more customers lead to a healthier and more robust industry? Shouldn't you try to make as many types of games for as many types of customers as...

    Japan Developers Don't Get US Gamers

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 March 2014

    and this video shoots itself in the foot by mentioning Inafune. Here's the thing: that interview he was citing had Inafune claim the Bionic Commando reboot did well in the West. Except it didn't. It BOMBED in the West both critically and commercially. In fact, Inafune had an interesting history with attempts to Westernize series only to have them blow up in his face. Bionic Commando, Lost Planet...

    What if the Wii U was as powerful as the PS4?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 March 2014

    no, because it's never been about power. The Wii U could have been as powerful as the PS4, heck probably even more so and 3rd parties would STILL turn up their noses and find excuses not to develop for it.It's also never been about sales either since the 3DS is still selling like mad week-in, week-out with a library that's only getting stronger and stronger. Whenever I think of 3rd parties and...

    Why the hell does the Internet have a vendetta against Nintendo?

    OneTwoThree said:Bloodlust. Go visit Neogaf and count how many people are clamoring for Iwata's head. It's depressing. None of them can explain WHY they would want that. It's just satisfying in a primal human way to see others (higher-ups, in particular) fail. Very much like politics, where most people are completely clueless about the actual topics - but they all love it when a...

    Pachter: Nintendo should go third party until they can make a good console

    in Nintendo Discussion on 17 January 2014

    I'm starting to think the reason Nintendo has been having trouble isn't because they've gone downhill, but because the gamersphere has become overrun by idiots. And that's the sad thing about what Pachter said: he's 100% serious. He's not trolling, he thinks he's saying something smart despite it being illogical and stupid....
