Re: Poll: Nintendo Switch Countdown - Less Than a Week to Go, Is the Hype Building?

@MarcelRguez But you know if won't be just Zelda and Snipper Clips you'll want to play. Those are just the only 2 you want to play today, but you know Mario Odessey and Xenoblade 2 are coming along with Splatoon 2 and a whole bunch of other games for at least the next 4 year. If you know they're coming there's no need to wait. Snag it now and enjoy them as they come. If you wait you end up like me. I bought a Wii 3 years in (I waited until there was a price drop and a 2 game bundle wii Sports + Wii Sports Resort) and there were some many awesome games that not only was I never able to catch up and play them all some of them were out of print and EXTREMELY expensive second hand (lookin at you Metroid Prime Trilogy) I was wishing I had bought early so that I didn't have that problem. I didn't make the same mistake with Wii U, I bought it day 1 and never regretted it and I'll be buying Switch this week and I'm confident I won't regret my decision.

@UmniKnight Yeah, and I'm not sure which is worse. The Wii shovelware from companies with at least enough funding to get a publishing run done, or the potential for the phone apps to be ported. Then again, the most popular system gets the most shovelware....I suppose phones win that, but don't forget the PS2...there was some dreary shovelware there.

I don't want to see the eShop become a shovelware infestation, but one possible way to help prevent that depends on how the eShop is organized. Pushing touch games to a special category not presented on any of the big pages. WiiU started putting indies and AAAs as equals, but since touch-only games can't work on all the system's modes, it would be only fair enough to put them in their own "drawer" in the shop, and that would cut down on the infestation.

I just don't see Switch being very profitable for the cash grabbing F2P model that thrives on phones, an I imagine that will cut down immensely on the shovelware (why make it if its proven not to produce money?)

Hopefully... But I admit I'm not the ideal person to be talking phone games, I just don't get the appeal of most saying "yes! phone games! That really helps Switch!" I thought the point of most phone/tablet games was either because it's always in your pocket (unlike Switch), or because it's the device you own and there's no option for less sucky games...

@beazlen1 There were other games on the Wii that contributed to its success. No one game sold that system, it took the entire library of games to do it. Wii Sports contributed, it did not make it a success. There is no such thing as a "system seller" game. Zelda Breath of the Wild is even worse of than Wii Sports (in that supposed "system seller" context), I will be playing it without buying a new system!

Re: Review: Dragon Ball Fusions (3DS)

@matiasu I feel pretty much the same you do about the 3D its almost a deal Breaker if Stereoscopic 3D is not included. But ive picked up Dragon Quest VIII and this DragonBall game in the last couple week and im glad i did. They both look great even though no 3d. If you have an Amazon Prime account or know anyone who does you can get DragonBall for 22.99 and Dragon Quest for 32.99. Both excellent deals. You can also sign up for a free month of prime to get those discounts. I highly recommend if you like RPG's

@SLIGEACH_EIRE Wow. Someone needs a nap! Jk, you're clearly proud of the fact that you're an obstinate brat, and no nap can clear that up.

So, first- there are like 400 comments on this story. Do you really think I've read every single one? My comment wasn't a reply to the one where you supposedly claim to like Wii U. This is just obvious if you read my comment.

Second- that makes no difference anyway. Your feelings on Wii U don't negate what I said to you, because my comment wasn't dependent on your opinion. You called Wii U a "disaster", and I very clearly addressed that as the basis for my reply. So it actually seems like you're the one in need of some comprehension exercises.

And third- do you just enjoy being awful to people? I'm really curious. I feel like it must be kind of sad to be you. Being so miserable all the time seems truly burdensome.

Edit: I absolutely LOVE how you complain about having to deal with the "fanboys" on this site lmao. Bro, READ THE NAME OF THIS SITE. What do you expect to encounter on a site like this? People come here specifically because they want a Nintendo-positive experience. If you really can't handle that, then you don't have to be here. Your presence here is 100% voluntary.

Re: Nintendo Throws a Blue Shell at Real Life Mario Kart

I know it varies depending on the country, but I'm fairly certain that Nintendo doesn't have a legal leg to stand on with this. Saying that MariCar is an abbreviation of Mario Kart, doesn't make it "Mario Kart". Unless the company admits to this.

Secondly, in the image they advertise cart racing with some people dressed in costumes. They're simply using some people dressed up in costumes. This is the same as saying that if one of them was wearing a Mario T-Shirt that they'd sue them for that too. Now, maybe that's not okay when it comes to advertising. But they're not technically using images or videos of Nintendo's characters. Just what LOOKS LIKE their outfits. So perhaps there is a loophole there.

Finally, they lend a costume to drivers. So what. It's the kart racing experience the people are buying. If they happen to want to wear that costume, then fine. It's an option. But costumes can be fairly purchased and lent to others without permission of the company that holds the rights to that costume. Just imagine the hell that costume rental shops would go through.

I just... I just don't agree with how pathetic Nintendo can be in these situations.

Re: Review: Dragon Ball Fusions (3DS)

@roy130390 well it looks like a solid RPG in single player anyway. Plus I saw that Amazon was selling it to Prime members for 22.99 so i ordered it. It will go on my backburner since im going through Dragon Quest VII and Dragon quest VIII right now. Plus I expect to be playing Switch by Saturday with Zelda. Might be a while before I get to dragon Ball. Im a little bummed there is no 3d cause it looks like it would have look great in 3D. Dragon Quest VIII looks great with no 3D but i wish that had 3D also.

So much good stuff all coming out at the same time. Im also looking forward to RPG Maker Festival on 3DS in July. I pre bought it from Amazon with my Prime membership account for 31.99. Great deal! Keep on Rockin 3DS!

Lol there really are some weird people on this site. Seriously, if you really can't see how blatantly this infringes on Nintendo's rights to THEIR OWN PROPERTY, then you are clearly lacking a functional understanding of the way the world works, and possibly a conscience, too.

Re: Nintendo Download: 2nd March (Europe)

Given that Nintendo are able to sell BOTW to 2 markets, Switch and Wii U. It wouldn't hurt them to offer the digital Wii U version at a lower price.

They make Wii U owners wait years for a game so that it can be a Switch launch title and remove Gamepad functions. Then they have the audacity to charge £60 for the digital version, the most they've ever charged for a download!

As a reward to loyal and patient Wii U owners, this is a disgrace. It's really soured my view of Nintendo. I wish the gaming press would question Nintendo about this, how on earth do they justify it?

Re: VOEZ Is The First Nintendo Switch Game You Can Only Play In Portable Mode

NEStalgia

@UmniKnight It depends on if Nintendo is still applying the "seal of quality" principles. They certainly didn't in the Wii era. And some of the eShop trash on WiiU has been questionable, but Nintendo was eager to get anything on the console. I'm HOPING they have filters to prevent mobile trash from coming over.

Looking at yuwarites gameplay video this game is anything but shovelware. It's non-traditional, but it looks like an absurdly difficult rhythm game (eat that Theatrhythm...)

Re: Nintendo Download: 2nd March (Europe)

Does Sega Rule on 3DS or what? Thank you for being there at the right time Sega! I hope we see some more Sega Classic 3D games before its all over. I would love to see a few more Sega 3D Classics a couple that come to mind for me would be Mickeys Castle of Illusion, Shining in the Darkness and lastly........Virtua Racing. Thwy have so many more they could 3Dize its sick. Thanks for what you have done and thanks for what you will do in the future. Your games blew the socks off Virtual Console.

Re: Here's What The Day One Nintendo Switch System Update Will Do

Raiutora

@SLIGEACH_EIRE There's no telling how big the file for the update will be, but that doesn't determine how much storage space it would take. Much of the data would more than likely be replacing redundant data already embedded into the system files.

I can't imagine it being more than MB's big. Technically, it could even be streamlining the current OS storage, unlikely but who knows. Either way, if you are a physical game owner, the storage gets you by until you choose to add to it. It is the right decision, lower costs with lower storage that is cheaply upgrade-able by the choice of the consumer. IT comes with a standard entry amount of storage when compared to leading Smartphones companies -Apple and its iPhone 7 is a great example.
