@Dipper723 Assuming their at 7.5 million now I don't think it'll move 2 million units in 1.25 months. I think it'll be more or less the same with what SM3DW did. This being Smash I'll say around 300-400k consoles sold in that time frame to close out the year. Just a prediction.

3MonthBeef commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

Without different exclusives coming to it by way of third-parties (not the usual AAA, but something different) its only worth owning for the classic first party games. But with the droughts made by such a position the console is worth only getting at a discount.

There's nothing revolutionary being done with the gamepad, and let's face it, that dream is gone. If the only tangible selling point is amiibo then they should start releasing skus without the pad and include an amiibo portal.

3MonthBeef commented on Review: The Swapper (Wii U eShop):

I'm finding more and more games I like are coming from the Nordic regions. Examples: Mirror's Edge, Limbo, this game and soon Inside (isn't out but looks great) to utter a few. Its like they produce games with the perfect blend of style and substance.

3MonthBeef commented on Talking Point: The amiibo Range Grows, Yet Key...:

The lack of storage on the amiibo distracts from its appeal. I mean with the read/write situation you basically could have the game itself save special character data and through a NNID setup have it ported to any game you wanted. The amiibo from that standpoint is an unnecessary messenger of data.

As far as releasing every character in Smash I can understand that. I mean it'd be pretty annoying to see only say 10 FP characters fighting. Releasing them all guarantees some variety and experimentation amongst gasp gamers (not armchair gaming critics). Not to mention if they had released a handfull you'd surely hear the argument (whining), "Why didn't they release them all? They should have given us the choice. Damn you Nintendo!"

3MonthBeef commented on Nintendo Outlines Confusing amiibo Save Data L...:

I would have figured these could hold more data for multiple games. It just adds an extra annoying step on the process. I guess it also depends if the is a cross title like smash or a different title altogether. We need another year to know for sure I guess, as always.

Sounds like the perfect sneak attack to get people into QoL. Oh , and yes Mr. Iwata it is embarrassing, very much so. But smart on Nintendo as Microsoft has their own avatars and as far as I know only existence within their universe. At least Nintendo is branching out to other platforms, supposedly with a wider scope in mind for them as I stated already.

@chilenozo "I would love to have Call of Duty on our platform. I would love to have any of the big blockbuster, multi-platform titles. But I have to say, more specifically, I want games that provide a differentiated consumer experience."

What's the problem with his comment? He's not at all implying Nintendo exclusives are all that they need.

If 3rd parties didn't release an iteration of their flagship titles EVERY SINGLE year I wouldn't feel Reggie had much of a point. But he does. I mean why even buy CoD:AW when you know the sequel will be out next year to hopefully improve on the last? Then of course its the same vicious cycle of why buy the next in line when... you get the idea.

@Superstick I reckon Pac-Man, Sonic and Megaman since those are third-party characters. I'd also throw Captain Falcon and Little Mac in the mix because let's face it F-Zero is gone and Nintendo isn't going to squander their limited resources on Punch-Out.

Bear in mind, there's nothing saying Nintendo won't reissue certain characters if the need for them arises.

3MonthBeef commented on Bayonetta 2 Falls From UK Charts After One Week:

That top 40 list is stupid anyways. Its comprised of mostly the same 5-10 games that are cross-gen. Bayonetta already wasn't a household ip like FIFA or Mario in the title so what do you expect? Joke of a list of no importance.

3MonthBeef commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

At this stage in the game consumers will buy whatever console they feel delivers the best offerings for them. Its all about the hype of the games coming out this holiday season and what news leads into it to get gamers excited for the new year.

For me, Wii U is looking better and better, PS4 (third-parties especially) have been dropping the ball to say the least and Xbone, for me, the brand is irrevocable.

3MonthBeef commented on Nintendo 64x64: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's ...:

The release of this game seemed just too close to OoT for me to want to get into. My impression was I already play as kid Link in OoT, I don't want to have a whole game centered around that alone. I wouldn't mind playing it now (its been enough time : P) with updated graphics.

i get kind of annoyed when games produce sequels merely a year later. It makes me just want to hold out for the inevitable sequel after that.

@Mega719 That's what I thought as well. I think this guy is underestimating the complexity of 3D work let alone developing a huge roster of teams comprised entirely of historical figures. Seems more like a games development itch just needing to be scratched.

If I were like the Spiky Bird guy I would rip this entire idea and make it 2D.

3MonthBeef commented on Super Smash Bros. Takes the Lead in Japan Once...:

Seeing these results make me think how I stumbled across Chrono Trigger. I was sold on the box art and the description alone. Didn't see or read one advertisement for it. All I knew as it came from Squaresoft who made SoM and FFVI which were testaments to greatness incarnate. Fast-forward to today and most of these games give me little reason to go out on a and buy them. Practically no game writes a world immersing description. Most have rather lame artwork (excused if said game is part of an established franchise).

I say all this to mean two things although there probably is a hidden gem in some of these titles, first impressions may put most people off to buying them.

3MonthBeef commented on Nintendo 64x64: GoldenEye 007:

I surprise myself how often I complain about movies to game never works yet simultaneously having nothi0gn but fond memories of this game. This was the CoD of yesteryear, minus online capability, great main campaign and ridiculously fun multiplayer that to this day seems unmatched. There was always something gleefully (read:morbidly) enjoyable perfectly positioning proximity mines and rewarded with a kill.

3MonthBeef commented on More Minecraft Mania Looks Set for Wii U With ...:

@CrazyMetroid I was thinking more of U Craft, which plans to release by December. So if these guys are somehow in competition with each other then i suspect Stone Shire will try to release just as quickly which means what you basically see now is what you'll likely get in the future. In the case of Nexis games who are making U Craft base on their first outing with BrickBlast U I expect another unpolished game.

If these guys were serious about Minecraft on Wii U you'd think they'd pool their resources together to make a real polished game. As of now their each just capitalizing on the Wii U demographic wishing for some kind of Minecraft clone not caring much about polish or even a marked improvement over that which inspired it.

3MonthBeef commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS):

@Daruncic Right!? I mean what game with online MP hasn't suffered from drop game sessions, questionable hit detection, freezes etc? EA alone is proof enough for that.

The whole WiiU has poor online multiplayer is being blown way out of the league here. The only they don't do is voice chat and frankly for me I hate when people use the feature solely to annoy other plays by chewing into the mic, having a side conversation with whoever else is in the room or playing loud music for all to hear.

@Kaze_Memaryu Democracy sucks when only stupid, lazy or uninformed people vote.

And as for the developer of this "fine" game:
There is nothing more annoying than people hiding behind technicalities to sidestep otherwise obvious points. (quote adapted from amillionhp on gamespot).

1) D-pad should have been an option.
2) People applying that much force have no sense of the dead zone. Heck no sense of what it takes to register a movement. It isn't much. Its not an arcade stick and cabinet. Don't treat it as such.
3) Same people breaking these are likely the same people who pound on the pedestrian crosswalk traffic button a hundred times.
4) Same people likely broke a Wiimote and/or slapped someone in the face with one.
5) At least now they have the perfect excuse to get the New 3DS!
