8bitforever commented on Pokémon White Makes Surprise Appearance in UK...:

I think Xenoblade would have been better served as an HD upgrade on the WiiU. The 3DS version doesn't look very good and that kind of grand scale game needs to be on a bigger screen. And this is from someone that loves handheld gaming. Bad decision that will likely repeat in the US as well.

@Stubborn_Monkey Excellent points! I heard that Game of War brings in millions daily and I am sure this kind of profitability is something Nintendo is interested in. And if we still want Nintendo to stay around they have to find a way to stay profitable. The WiiU has been a failure that isn't bringing in the money the way the Wii did and the 3DS is slowing as well. I don't blame them and so far their DLC isn't as bad as others.

There are a lot of opinions on both sides of this argument, but this delay will hurt overall sales for the WiiU this holiday season. Xenoblade is not a well known game and won't boost sales the way Zelda could. The rest of Nintendo's "known" lineup isn't strong either and really won't help them move WiiU off shelves. While I understand the need for the delay to make sure the finished product is good, Nintendo has to know that this is likely the last holiday season for WiiU before stores start clearancing go them off. PS4 and Xbox One are selling so well that most consumers are writing off the WiiU unless it is for their kids. It is a tough pill to swallow but the WiiU is so far the worst console they have ever developed. I would take a GameCube or N64 over it anyday. It will be the last Nintendo console I buy at launch as I don't want to get burned again.

Big disappointment. I am done with the WiiU, 2015 has one game I care about and that is it. After talking with the family we are trading it in for a PS4. Way more game choices and being a huge Dragon Quest fan I am super hyped for Dragon Quest Heroes. Maybe the NX will be better but I won't be jumping to buy another Nintendo console at launch.

As much as we can blame the scalpers, it is Nintendo that started theses things getting rare when they discontinued Marth so early. Before that they weren't on eBay and people weren't freaking out. I started collecting these but quickly have up for several reasons. First, Nintendo was shooting these out wave after wave too quickly. If you didn't preorder you didn't have a chance. Second, the rarity meant I could even complete my collection and I wasn't about to pay eBay prices. I eventually had to quit. I sold what I had and kept a few I liked. Nintendo really messed this up. They should have made more and shouldn't be making any of them rare. I can buy any Disney Infinriy figure I want with ease, but not Amiibo. I hope they are happy because this crap really pissed me off and put a black spot in my heart for the company. They have some nothing to fix it and don't seem to care as long as they are making money.

Nintendo just keeps doing everything wrong with Amiibo. Instead of restocking rare figures they make cards! People want the figure! The cards should have been out at the start as an alternative. I sold mine and won't buy more as it is obvious Nintendo has no clue what they are doing. I will keep collecting Infinity figures as they are easy to get.

@ikki5 I also didn't like the demo. My problem was more with the graphics. As a Vita and 3DS owner, I would have preferred a Vita version so it could at least look better. The camera was okay but only because I do have the circle pad pro. I just don't get why this game is so popular, but to each his own and I hope those that buy it have fun.

I just went to my local Toys R Us today and bought Toon Link and Sheik. They had Bowser but since they had 30 of him and only a few of the ones I bought I passed on him. The manager said Lucario had a street date of 1/30 so they couldn't sell me him yet, but I will be there on 1/30 as soon as they open.

@AshFoxX I am in the same boat myself. I have a 3DS XL and cannot see why I need to upgrade yet. I had a Vita but had to sell it due to some financial issues. However, I want another very badly since it has so many new games. I am going with Vita this time, which means I can upgrade later when there is a game I want to play forcing me to do so.

8bitforever commented on Research Firm's Black Friday Data Shows Wii U ...:

I work with a lot of "gamers", and I asked what were people planning on buying this year. The vast majority of young gamers only play the bro shooters or sports games and the rest play Assains Creed. I was shocked at how many people were buying PS4 and Xbox One just to play those games only. They are training their kids the same way too. My kids have played nothing but Nintendo their whole lives because I feel they are the best and especially for families. I don't understand going online for hours just to shoot at other people and get screamed at by 10 yr olds. The world of gamers has changed and I think in the long run Nintendi still has the best to offer. The bro shooter stuff is beginning to wear thin and now half the third parties cannot even release a game without major issues now. My family will be playing Nintendo until they go under but these stats show that a lot of parents don't care what their kids play as long as they got a good deal. I did try a PS3 for a while but wasn't happy and traded it in just in case someone wants me to try their world. We are all free to enjoy what we want, but it does worry me that so many young people only play games that involve shooting other people. Sad times indeed but I think Nintendo has legs and isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

The problem with other competitors is they are really pushing for cloud based gaming and things that rely on Internet connectivity. I love Nintendo because they don't force that on you and allow you to just play really good games. Steam is over hyped and only good because they offer good deals. I would much rather play nintendo games and know that they are top quality.

@JosieC84 It is sad that those types of games are what sells. I know lots of people that own a PS4 or XBone and only play COD or Battlefield. And to make matters worse, they also only play online. I cannot imagine spending all year doing nothing but running around and shooting at other people online. Sadly, these players buy day one and buy every map and weapon pack too. I would rather play a variety of games but to each his own I guess.

In case anyone is curious, Lego Batman 3 on 3DS is awesome. It is not like the last entries and is more like part 2. The levels are no longer broken into tiny segments with timed rewards, etc. This one plays like a proper lego game!

@SahashraLA You nailed it. While I love some of the new games, my first choice will always be the old stuff. I recently bought both Lunars to play on my PS3 and have never been happier. We are in a dying class of gamers though. I work with people that have multiple systems and ONLY play Call of Duty. To each their own I suppose but I plan to buy this one and will likely love the old quirks.

The real issue is the WiiU. It came out too late and now it is way behind the PS4 and Xbox One. That will never change and unless Nintendo releases a more powerful system then get used to not getting games. Honestly, Nintendo needs to focus on handhelds because they haven't got the console stuff right since the SNES days. I love Nintendo but there won't be another system if the WiiU doesn't prove sales.

@TonLoco I would even consider getting a PSP for that. The Vita's memory cards are crazy expensive. I bought a new PSP with a 32 gb card for just under $120. There are a lot of cool PSP games like the Capcom Arcade and Genesis collections that still aren't playable on Vita so PSP is better chioce plus you have much longer battery life and all the games are available digitally.

They had the best cartridge boxes! I loved mine and only got rid of it later because SNES had so many RPGs I wanted to play. I had to sell one to get the other back then. Good memories.

8bitforever commented on Feature: Where Are The Super Nintendo 3D Class...:

@Einherjar So I am not allowed to be disappointed? Oh, it was the mention of emulators that got your panties all twisted up. Facts are facts, if a game cannot be bought in today's market then it is open for emulation. I buy before I ever look to emulate anything, but in this case I don't have a choice because Nintendo won't release them except in the WiiU and I am not interested in paying $300 for that system which I have no interest in. Sorry this offends you but Nintendo could do it they just won't. If they ever did out them on the 3DS then I would be glad to buy them. I don't appreciate the way you described me either. I never attack anyone since they are entitled to their opinion. It is good to have discussion and debate but your comment was childish and stupid. I am not some teenager ranting online. I have played games for over 25 years and I have bought every game I have emulated. The problem is those games break over time and cannot easily be replaced. I owned 30 GBA games but they were lost during a move and my SNES games don't work like they used to. So make me out to be some hacker punk all you want cause it isn't the truth. I have supported Nintendo longer than some of you on here have been alive.

VC on 3DS has turned into a joke. It started out well enough but quickly started to get worse. Nintendo has a chance to make lots of money and turn the 3DS into a treasure trove of VC goodness. However, they would rather give their failed WiiU all the SNES and GBA love. It isn't going to make that system sell and it is pointless. But those games on the 3DS! I would buy the crap out of those games but I refuse to support the WiiU. I think they missed a great opportunity and I doubt they will change their minds. Sony is just as bad though. Europe gets Crash Bandicoot for Vita but not the US! I still have my PSP but it would be nice. It just bothers me that so many wonderful games exist for the GBA and SNES and we won't ever get them on VC. This is why people use emulators Nintendo! I would gladly pay for the games but until then I will emulate and enjoy them elsewhere.

I plan to buy every one but it won't result in me buying WiiU games, etc. I just want the figures. Nintendo will make lots of money off these for sure, but I wonder how it will impact game and system sells when so far these really don't do much. With Infinity, you have to buy the figure to even get them in game, that is not the case for these. At the moment they seem completely optional.

@JaxonH Problem is I had a 3DS break from a child, no fault of the system. I called Nintendo and they would not restore my purchases. This was prior to NNID. Are you saying that Nintendo has changed their position now that they have the NNID? If so I might consider it but since I lost so much the first time I am less willing to spend again.

8bitforever commented on Mario Kart 8 Speeds Past The Two Million Copie...:

Mario Kart will have legs for sure. This version is without a doubt their best. But I am still waiting on that account system. I just cannot fully commit to the WiiU until I have it. I feel now that it just isn't going to happen. I think digital sales are high enough so that Nintendo feels no need to apply one. Cross buy and an account system, it was all I wanted from Nintendo this year.

Freedom Wars is coming out soon in Japan for Vita. It is a very Monster Hunter like game that could really push units. Also, I don't think any consoles are going to do real well in Japan. They seem to be stuck on the portables. I love my portables too, don't get me wrong.

8bitforever commented on Feature: A Cross-Platform Look At E3 2014:

@Ferkner True, but the 3DS is vastly underpowered and I believe it will be replaced sooner than later. By 2015, the level of games and their detail and complexity is going to increase by a huge margin. Pokemon will continue to hold up the 3DS but I don't see it lasting the normal 5 years plus that previous models have. There are now smartphones and tablets that put even more pressure on the handheld market. I could be completely wrong though since I have no idea of Nintendo's future plans, it is just my prediction.

8bitforever commented on Feature: A Cross-Platform Look At E3 2014:

@Obito_Tennyson Wow, I actually did read the whole thing by the way. My hate comes from being ripped off by Nintendo. My 3DS broke (an accident) and I had about $100 worth of digital purchases. I got a new one and called Nintendo and they said tuff luck. I tried to speak to a manager but nothing. Utter crap. I have yet to buy anything digital from them since. I am honestly blown away that so many of you here think the account thing isn't a big deal, you will when something like this happens to you. By the way Somy didn't join in the fun. Nintendo forces their hand when they back stabbed them in the back by going to Phillips for their SNES CD drive instead of Sony. Sony went I to CES ready to show their new CD add on and looked like fools. Go google it, it is a good read. I don't hate Nintendo. I just hate the direction they are going now. I have owned Nintendo consoles exclusively since the SNES days. I only went to Sony after I got screwed. I watched E3 this year hoping to see a reason to invest in Nintendo but didn't see anything. Again, my personal opinion. I do like the games Sony showed better for my taste. I wish Nintendo luck but they have to do something. Most newer games are excluding last gen and this will continue leaving Nintendo with nothing but their games. Don't get me wrong, Nintendo makes the best games! They are utterly the best developer out there but that won't sustain them long term. The 3DS was and is great but is also reaching its end of life. Hopefully their next handheld will be amazing and that will help too but the WiiU will survive maybe 2014 but after that there just isn't reason to believe that system can attract sales enough to be profitable. Heck, maybe Nintendo will just keep supporting it anyhow but that may mean that the system never gets the attention of anyone outside of Nintendo fans. No hate here, just someone who is hoping for real change that would lead me back to the Big N.

@JaxonH First of all, Freedom Wars is in English and there have been several trailers to confirm that. Second. Even if it is only PSN at least I know my purchases are secure with Sony. If your WiiU or 3DS breaks then your are SOL! Nintendo cannot even be bothered to make an actual account system after how many years? I do agree that Sony didn't show much but after I have seen lots of news showing games so I am happy about that. As far as your list, only Shovel Knight and Hyrule Warriors interest me. Again, this is my choice and I don't hate games. I have been playing for over 30 years, my first system was years before Nintendo came along. There are more games coming out. I am looking forward to Lego Batman 3, La Mulana, The Walking Dead Season 2, The Wolf Among Us, Galak Z just to name a few. I still haven't finished the God of War collection, Final Fantasy X HD, and the Sly Cooper Collection. There are awesome games on Vita as well as 3DS, I just hate the Vita is dead crap as it is a fantastic system and doesn't deserve the hate it gets.

8bitforever commented on Feature: A Cross-Platform Look At E3 2014:

This thread is so confusing. Everyone is like Nintendo won, Vita is dead. Look, games are a personal decision and I couldn't disagree more. First, the Vita isn't dead. They announced it is getting Disney Infinity 2.0 (Marvel) that will be a mirror of the PS3 version! Freedom Wars looked amazing, and they have lots of games coming. I will admit that Sony didn't give it enough time for sure. The PS4 has amazing games coming that aren't just shooters. etc. like Drive Club and Bloodborne. Nintendo had a few games but for someone who doesn't like Smash Bros. then I really didn't find any interesting games. I don't like the direction they are going with Star Fox and the New Zelda game is likely next holiday. They really didn't announce much for the 3DS either. Overall, I see the WiiU being left behind once games like Far Cry 4 and the new Batman game arrive. I realize this is just my opinion but I this year just didn't wow me outside of Nintendo's opening.
