Yeah, I kinda agree with him on most points. Nintendo is out of touch for the most part. Ill get the Switch for those occasional times they release a great game, like I did on the WiiU.

Nintendo will just never be what they once was. That might be a great thing for many, but I'm getting tired of being confused by their decisions and annoyed about the lack of information on their products.

How can we get them to be better than that though?

Its just me feelings about them. Most people who are buying the Switch might be getting exactly what they want for all I know.

But your feelings seem to be everyone else's feelings. We need to get Nintendo away from this current path or they'll be past the point of no return.



This is the guy that still swears Vita will outsell 3DS right?

 

Why should I watch a video of a guy who wrote this gem

Polygon levels of wrong.

I think they already might be past it tbh. We should just hope we get as many great games as possible.

what I don't like about colin is that he's not too informative, he says stuff even if he's wrong. I saw the video and I see a big rant, "same old Colin" that's what I saw. He's video, just like a lot of people, screams "this console is doomed because of one presentation" same old "the playstation vita is set to succeed" colin. Same old colin, ironic.

This is Colin Moriarty of Kinda Funny Games. He grew up as big of a Nintendo fanboy as they come. He openly admits he would drink Miyamoto's bath water at one point of his life. But Colin grew up, and Nintendo didn't. He was hoping Nintendo would make a console that he would want for the first time in 15 years. The rumors surrounding the console had him more hyped than he had been since the Gamecube was launched. He hoped Nintendo was finally going to make a console that would push him back into being a happy Nintendo console owner, but worried that Nintendo was Nintendo, and would fuck it all up.

Unfortunately Colin was right.

Isn't it funny that the people who bash the system the most seem to have that exact same story down to a T.

As soon as I hear someone say that story, I immediately ignore them. They don't love Nintendo. They love other games. Nintendo games have improved each time a new one comes out. Has Zelda, or Mario taken a hit in quality at all? Name other big IP's of theirs and ask the same thing. No they have not. Those "sob" stories about Nintendo not growing up with them is bullshit. They just don't like those games anymore.

So what is so wrong with the Switch reveal that we didn't expect. Ignoring any hardware stuff. Before this conference we KNEW it was going to be a handheld/home console. Nothing changed. In conference we got a new Mario that looks amazing, no one can deny that. We have a Zelda being released that looks amaizng, again no one can deny. We have a sequal to one of the highest acclaimed RPG's. It is getting a ultimate edition of the best Mario Kart game to date. It is gettting a sequal to a highly praised new IP(Splatoon).

Basically, it comes down to it's missing 3rd parties. Which, is NOT NINTENDO. Nintendo is Nintendo games. That is it.

Oh wow, he really is that moron.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Colin always comes off as self-important. When he does a podcast with Greg and Tim, more often than not, he looks like a pretentious dick who listens to what the others are saying with an air of "I know better than them" in his face. It's annoying.

I'm not saying he doesn't make good points at times. Just that the guy likes his own crap way more than he should.

That, and his delivery is fake as hell.

Ohh okay. Keep telling people like him that will play the fuck out of Zelda and Mario when he gets the chance that he doesn't actually like those games. Is one of his complains about the quality of Nintendo games? No? Then how is this relevant? His problem isn't Nintendo's first party games, it the system (and the ecosystem surrounding it) that he has a problem with. Why dont you get that?

And by the way, the NES, SNES and N64 I grew up with were loaded with top quality third party titles. In fact I grew never playing iconic Nintendo titles like Zelda and Metroid. Most of the games I owned for those platforms weren't published by Nintendo.
