Nintendo is smart, and I hate them for that fact

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo is smart, and I hate them for that fact

you do have a good point, but in the end i blame the people who buy the same remade game over and over. Its funny people come in to my gamestop and as me for a mario game like the old ones, and i ussually sell em a wii and a few nintindo points cards, when they coulda just ebayed the game and a nintendo for a quarter of the price.

Nintendo is smart and they're making amazing business decisions. I don't doubt that at all. I just hate that fanboys are still creaming their pants over a game we played 15 years ago with a few slight upgrades. It goes entirely against myself as a gamer.

 

And this is coming from Nintendo fans. Fans who for the past few years have been screaming "Graphics whores~!~!~!" At HD fanboys. It's so ironic I can't help but laugh.


this comment is awesome lol XP

yeah, stupid Ninendo and their intelligent marketing practice of delivering to the market whatthe consumers are interested in.  how lazy.

the consumer is dictating this game, and Nintendo is simply responding to that demand.  but if you think a massive company like Nintendo has such limited resources that they are actually diverting resources from a new Zelda IP to afford this port, well that is simply as ridiculous as criticizing a business for making money.


Congratulations on missing the point of everything I wrote. You deserve a medal. :P

 

I'm upset over the fact that Nintendo is smart and realizes they can take advantage of the nostalgia in fanboyism. If you took time to understand what I was saying, you'd see what I'm really mad about is the fact that fanboys are so nostalgic and get giddy over ports of games we've been playing for almost 15 years. When they could get something new. And why do I hate it? Because it means that Nintendo will be remaking old games instead of giving us new ones.

It's not Nintendo's fault at all and I never meant it that way. *shrugs* You totally missed my point.

Is Nintendo so massive that they can make SS and this port of OoT and still have all the people they need leftover to put all the effort needed into a brand new Zelda 3DS? You have no basis for that argument besides your fanciful thoughts. How about you find some way to prove it?

It's not about Nostalgia. OoT is the best Zelda game in existance, and now we get to see it in 3D.

Considering the downturn that the Zelda series has suffered from with each new installment, I'd rather have the best Zelda ever made again in 3D, and in a convenient portable form, than a new one if they intend on maintaining the current trend of Zelda games.

Also, you need to remember that this is a launch title. A new 3DS Zelda would be of subpar quality if they rushed it to market, but a port of the best Zelda ever is quick to make, will please people, and fill a void until they make that brand new Zelda.

What about your last paragraph? it doesn't make sense.



I LOVE ICELAND!

Well. I don't think Nintendo is always smart . Don't forget that they had really bad moments in gaming market with N64 and GameCube. They lost much of  the third party support they had on SNES era. For almost 15 years gamers searched for new ways of gaming and that was provided by Sony and Microsoft later on. Now people is reviving Nintendo, but for how long?



I'll answer this in full since you saw fit to reply to me (tangentially, I will add) in the newspost.

But first: I'm gonna play some Reach.

Well it's not really the same as the other ports of the game as they weren't really improved at all. But I do see your point. I had the orignal for n64, the GC version and bought it on VC. Playing the same game again and again is starting to get old. I hope they add something extra like how in sm64 ds you can play through as different characters. They should add Sheik as a playable character like how RE4 for ps2 added an extra senario for what ada was doing.



Joke thread.

 

You're sooo buying Zelda OoT for your 3DS...

I can think of one good reason why people get excited for an OoT remake on the 3DS: There hasn't been a good handheld Zelda game since Minish Cap.

And really, this is nothing new. The GBA had it, the DS had it as well. A port or remake is faster to get ready for the launch of a new system than a brandnew game.


This but OoT wont change that.



I'm beginning to think it's just a port of the N64 version with better character models and (slightly) higher res textures. In fact ghoma looks to have about the same poly count as the old one, and the environments have the same poly count.

interface icons are exactly the same, mini map exactly the same.

edit: found this on gametrailers.

Do you really want the same adventure, same gameplay that we have already been playing all these years? 

Why yes, yes I do. Hell, I already own 4 copies of OoT on various platforms. Why not a fifth?
