    How many NX's does Nintendo need to sell for it to be considered a success?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 16 May 2016

    Simple and straightforward question. I think 30-35 million lifetime would be the starting line for a successful console. Anything more is icing on the cake, and anything less is another nail in the coffin....

    So can we start tracking the figurines now?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 13 December 2014

    I don't even know if it's possible, but I think it would be swell fun to start tracking the various figurines on the market. With 3 major players in the business now, the time is ripe to start keeping tabs on these thingymajigs. Anyone know what it would take to implement this?  Would anyone else be interested in Vgchartz keeping numbers on these? I'm just an idea man, now it's time for the...

    Sony struggling to keep up with Vita demand?

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 04 July 2014

    Wtf! Is what I first thought when I saw the Forbes article, but there it was in black and white. As a Vita owner I think it's awesome if true, but a part of me thinks it's hard to keep up with demand once you've all but halted production. I'm not saying they've halted production, but after this years e3 I wouldn't be surprised if it has been cut back drastically.  I guess time will tell if...

    UPDATED w/ PIC-Mario Kart 8 Happy Meals Are Coming!!!

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 29 June 2014

    Starting July 4th McDonalds will roll out their Mario Kart 8 Happy Meal promotion. There will be 8 Mario Kart themed toys to collect, and my little boy is already bouncing off the walls. I think this the perfect way to keep momentum up throughout the summer for the game. Nintendo May not be to big into advertising anymore, but you can bet your sweet ass you'll see a Happy Meal commercial...

    Kick Starters

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 22 April 2014

    It seems everytime you come on this or another gaming site there is a new kick starter being announced. I think it's a safe way to make sure there is interest in a game before there is millions of dollars invested in it. This got me thinking if we will start to see big time publishers (Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, EA, ect.) start to use this formula for their games as well. With as risky as it is...

    Anyone else addicted to 8 Ball Pool?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 21 April 2014

    I'm not a big mobile gamer by any stretch of the imagination, but 8 Ball Pool has definitely been getting a lot of playing time. Solid gameplay and a smooth online experience make it a very fun and addicting game. Any other closet fans out there? Plus, I've always though it would be a good game for the a Wii U Gamepad. If anyone ever wants to play send me an invite at Hibern81....

    Prediction-A late summer early fall Smash release means a holiday 2014 Zelda U release date!

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 21 April 2014

         Call me crazy (hey! I heard that!) but I think this early, Smash only, April direct is a clear sign that Nintendo will announce a late August or September release date for Smash Bros. Releasing a game of this magnitude well before the 2014 holiday season begins would be a huge indication of a much bigger, and more anticipated game release for the actual holidays itself. The...

    Mario Kart 8 looks fantastic! Now market the f#Ęk out of it!

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 05 April 2014

         The hard part is just about over, and the developers have done their job making a game that is so aesthetically pleasing that it is making people second guess just how powerful the Wii U is. Nintendo magic is what they call it. They have been squeezing blood from stones for years so it really isn't a surprise, at least to me, on how good this game looks. It has especially made...

    Facebook buys Nintendo for $16 billion!

    It seems Mark Zuckerberg is serious about entering the video game market after having bought Oculus Rift last week for $2 billion he has shocked the video game world by purchasing the house that Mario built for $16 billion. Here is the link. Now if you will please excuse me, I am going to be sick...   http://socialnewsdaily.com/33391/facebook-buys-nintendo-for-16-billion/...

    Guy texts entire works of Shakespeare to online retailer who ripped him off!

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 19 March 2014

    It appears a guy from the UK has gotten some poetic justice after being ripped off over a ps3. Here is an excerpt from the article: "My first thought was that I could try and pretend I had found out where he lived but it was all a bit of a cliche and it wasn't going to worry him really," Mr. Joseph told theTelegraph. "Then it just occurred to me you can copy and paste things from the...

    The Nintendo museum at the GDC.

    Here's a link to the video and article about Nintendo's museum booth at the Game Developers Conference. God, it would have been awesome to be there and check this stuff out in person. It's like taking a walk through my childhood. Anyway. I think I'm going to go find a Power Glove on...

    If you're not cheat'n you're not compete'n!

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 15 March 2014

    I've always sucked at fps, but I knew that there was no way in hell some of these people could be as good as they were. It appears the PC version of Titanfall has been inundated with people who just don't want to play fair by adding aimbots to their player which automatically puts the crosshairs on another players head. Respawn has acknowledged the problem, and has made a statement that they...

    Why doesn't Nintendo advertise the Wii U?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 02 March 2014

    Wii U comercials are harder to find than new copies of Xenoblade, and it begs the question of why? Speculation abound, does Nintendo not see it as cost effective? Do they feel the system is dead in the water, and the cost of advertising would be negligible at best. Is it a case of arrogance in that they feel the brand carries itself? If I had a product that was struggling I would make it to where...

    That I'm getting pretty turned on right now. She is in absolute beast mode, and it's giving me a funny feeling. The fact that she is not letting me play is not bothering me a bit. Anyone else get aroused when they play with their better halves? Oh! And the game is awesome! That is all....

    Just found the deal of a lifetime!

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 28 January 2014

    I was down at my local pawnshop yesterday looking through some games when they brought out an Xbox one. I guess the guy who pawned it gave it up so they were putting it out for display to be sold. It comes with CoD Ghosts and an extra controller for $549.99. The kicker here is that ALL gaming systems are 30% off until the end of the month. That brings the price down to $385. I even checked with...

    What are your 5 most anticipated games of 2014?

    This was a tough one to narrow down, but here it goes... 5. Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze 4. Dying Light 3. X 2. Infamous Second Son 1. Mario Kart 8 There were a lot of honorable mentions, and since I'm pretty sure Zelda U won't release this year this is the list. How about you?...

    Sega Genesis portable game player

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 18 January 2014

    Saw this thing at my local neighborhood bodega, and had an impulse to buy like I never have had before. First off, they had these things stacked up on the check out counter and before I had realized what had happened I already put it in my basket. I found the courage to put it back for the time being just so I could come check out some first hand accounts of people who actually own one. So, that...

    What video game was like pure magic to you?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 09 January 2014

    Hands down its Super Mario 64 for me.  I would buy every gaming magazine that existed at the the time just to get the next tidbit of information on it. The wait was excruciating! I would walk 3 miles down to the local Blockbuster every chance I got to wait in line to play for a few minutes.  One of the few games where the hype was actually overshadowed by the finished product. I...

    Would Nintendo be more profitable as a third party publisher?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 09 January 2014

    This is simply a question, and not an underlying desire whatsoever. I, for one, would hate to see nintendo leave the console business.  Tha said I've often wondered if the transition would actually be more of a profitable one. Seeing as I do not have the insight or business knowledge I leave it to minds greater than mine....
