On a serious note do you think a new Battalion Wars game could ever sell over .5 million?  I suppose Advance Wars would have a better bet at being a million seller. 

What they should do is use Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. gameplay with Advance Wars IP.

They better not make more Wii U ports. If there are more Wii U ports in 2018 I'm done with Nintendo for good.

Why? A poor lineup with Wii U ports would be bad, but with a good selection of new games, it's just icing on the cake. 

Wii U ports mean the Wii U was a scam, because I could just skip it. Nintendo should have waited until Switch 2 to release Wii U ports.

I used to buy Nintendo consoles but their lineups just get and more samey to me and I'm less and less interested in the Mario, Zelda, etc. rehashes. I played Zelda on Switch and it just seemed like a more annoying open world. Mario I haven't been impressed with since N64 honestly. Just don't get where all the praise comes from. AC Origins seems like a way better open world than Zelda so far.

So what Nintendo IPs do you want or wouldn't consider rehash?  They only have a few "major" IPs that they have neglected such as F Zero and Advance Wars.  You waiting for the next Excite Truck?

I'm not saying they're doing anything wrong it's what works for them, it's just not of interest to me.  A lot of people love playing Mario and Zelda and Smash and MK and such over and over.  I honestly was excited and I got a WiiU when Smash came out and got Mario Kart and everything.  I love having Nintendo stuff for 4 player local MP.  But their SP stuff just bores me personally.  And I don't like the Zelda decisions they made (hated weapon degredation ever since Diablo II).  So yeah I'm just done with them for now.  Maybe I'll pick up a switch down the line but I honestly don't foresee it after owning the previous 2 consoles (when I was a kid my one friend always had Nintendo so I played many of their games before that and loved them).

Diablo 1 had weapon durability.  Only question is can you repair it in Zelda like Diablo?

You can't repair anything in BotW except the Master Sword. There are four weapons which can be rebuilt but you need specific items and it's too much of a hassle.



Aaaand the ports announcements are already starting to trickle in. Bayonetta 2 was just confirmed for Switch this Feburary. Talk about giving us short notice! I feel like the January direct is going to be nuts.

Also, rumors are swirling that Namco Bandai has 5 or 6 games to announce being ported over to switch. Soul Caliber 6 is rumored to be among them!

Do you think Soul calibur was announced and specifically chose to NOT announce it on switch. Only to then announce it shortly after?

Why would Bandai ever do that?



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Yet it will still be inferior to consoles with full multiplat support.
