I can't believe I'm not interested in this yet... Feels like something missing to get my attention. :/

Just looking at the design I feel as I should be all over it, cause it looks really nice, just as appealing as an Iphone 4 IMO. That clean and exclusive look.

pretty much any remotely creative game on Wii didn't sell because it wasn't a sequel

I don't want to see that happening on other systems too. Especially with games like LBP where creativity is part of the point of that game and yet has trailers showing off as much new stuff as a Megaman sequel.

I admit my reasoning is fairly childish, but I am so sick of crap like this happening. It is frustrating beyond words.

That's the way the world works now. Look at Hollywood's fascination with remakes and reboots.

Deal with it. Don't buy the crap, look forward to the occasional interesting game. Then wave a sad farewell when sales fail and the company is shut up.

RIP Cavia. I'll never forget Nier.

@kkslider May not matter to other people, but I wouldn't care

If someone doesn't care about a game I love, I don't care that they don't care about it. Because it's not like it affects the game, really.

^It effects a lot of things actually. I can see why kkslider is frustrated, but like YellowChocobo said, that's life. Sure it sucks, but there's nothing you can do about it. Harping about it all the time sure isn't gonna change anything.

Oh, I was just referring to how it doesn't affect me/an individual, because if you like a game, it shouldn't matter if someone else doesn't because it should not effect the enjoyment of said game.

Just clarifying.

yeah, but if no one buys these games, why would anyone want to make these games as they'll likely lose money? Which means those types of games won't get made and I can't play them.

Very true, but that never stopped the Warriors games from being made (has a decent fanbase) every year. Of course, I don't think the budget to make those games are comparable to something like LittleBigPlanet, Epic Mickey, etc.

But I really don't put my mind on game sales much, personally.

There are other games out there that don't sell well but get sequels anyways.

What the heck do Warriors games have to do with this discussion? If you're using them as examples of games that sell poorly (back to kkslider's point), then you're very wrong, since they're always bestsellers in Japan. That alone justifies making more of them.

Then why are they released over here in the U.S. if they don't sell well here?

Evidently they sell well enough to keep doing it. If these games made losses, they would stop translating them.

I suspect translation costs for Tecmo Koei are relatively cheap with these games (we're not talking about epic RPGs, after all), and because they make so many games, they can operate on fairly thin margins per release.

Who says I was referring to Japan? I was referring to the US.

I don't think they make too much money off of the U.S. fanbase. But why do I care, I hate Dynasty Warriors games anyway.

My brother and cousins love 'em. They're okay but I find them boring (and they say Pokemon is repetetive when caparitively, DW and SW are kings of that).

But hey.. I like Lieu Bei (if that's how you spell his name) everytime I play- if at all.

Chrono_Cross

My older brother was obsessed with them as a teenager. I remember Dynasty Warriors 5 being really cool and good for what it was. But nowadays I find all of them very repetitive, boring, and effortless. There's really no way to explain it beyond that. And

Pokemon is considered an RPG? Of course its going to be repetitive to some degree but that game's fun and rewarding.

Just for you.

Well, whatever way they make DW fun, I make Pokemon fun

Um, no, you're talking about development costs and whether it's worth making games that don't sell well?

Believe it or not, but sometimes, just sometimes, the US isn't the centre of the universe and a game is still very proftitable even if it tanks in the US market. The Warriors games are very profitable for Tecmo Koei. Enough so they're opening new development studios to make even more of them (Tecmo Koei Canada, for instance).

I never said it was and I'm not talking about costs and all that extra stuff you're talking about.

And then you said

Very true, but that never stopped the Warriors games from being made (has a decent fanbase) every year.

So, again, if you weren't talking about the costs involved in making a game vs sales, what the hell were you talking about?
