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.

8bitforever commented on Mario Kart 8 Claims Top Spot in Japanese Chart...:

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.

@Artwark I just want a normal control scheme that will allow people like me who physically cannot move around like that to be able to play their game. I cannot help that my physical disability prevents me from moving around like that and I love Star Fox so I would like an opportunity to play it.

8bitforever commented on E3 2014: Getting To Grips With Amiibo, Nintend...:

@Artwark You mean the Star Fox with the silly control scheme.... Yeah, no thanks. I want less Wii like controlled games where I don't have to wave my arms and wonder around my living room. As a person who has motion sickness that will make that game unplayable to me. I am hoping for an alternate control setup.

@Faron I couldn't agree more. This game will be fine if it offers a normal control scheme but I doubt it will. Wasted opportunity to make a great Star Fox game if it is going to have a crazy control scheme that will keep me from playing it, and I love Star Fox! Side note, I have extreme motion sickness so this honestly will keep me from ever enjoying this game. Thanks a lot Nintendo!

Funny because the new Vita model sold out when it released. I wonder if sales have changed in the US or if that was just a reaction to a new model. I love mine and am very happy so I will never understand the fuss. To each his own I guess.

8bitforever commented on Rumour: Grainy Image of "Mario Maker" and Nint...:

If this is something they are actually making, then they had better have more! I for one am worn out on Mario games. When I was young we got one every few years so it felt like a huge surprise. I remember seeing Super Mario World for the first time and being blown away by the colors and 16-bit graphics! Now, they just keep shoving them in our faces. Never thought I would get tired of Mario but it happened and I blame Nintendo for releasing too many of them. They need to show Zelda WiiU, Metroid, Star Fox, and F-Zero or don't bother coming. Sony and Microsoft will have lots of games and surprises so Nintendo needs to do the same. And please announce an account system already so I can buy your digital stuff!

8bitforever commented on Japanese Retail Sales Struggle as Just 76 Unit...:

@rjejr Yeah I don't think Vita will ever topple the 3DS. I just wonder if Nintendo will bring us another underpowered system or give us an HD version that will be with the money. I like 3DS but I would prefer a higher resolution. I would love a hybrid system that is handheld and would play on your TV.

8bitforever

#25

8bitforever commented on Japanese Retail Sales Struggle as Just 76 Unit...:

@Blue-Thunder No, I sold it because there just isn't anything coming out for it I want to play and without an account system I am not buying their eshop stuff. I do love Nintendo and have been a fan for 20 years but their current strategy and lack of games has put me off. I just don't see any real future for WiiU. PS4 will be fine even with lower Japan sales since they are selling so much everywhere else. The WiiU is selling badly everywhere.

8bitforever

#26

8bitforever commented on Japanese Retail Sales Struggle as Just 76 Unit...:

@rjejr The PS4 is actually a good system. I think the lower sales are due to no games at the moment and the price itself. Japan has moved to a more handheld driven market anyhow. And Mario Kart 8 isn't going to save
the WiiU, I sold mine a week ago so I one of those people that isn't convinced over one game. There is a whole lot more wrong with Nintendo that led me to my decision. In the end Sony will eventually bury the WiiU and possibly the 3DS. That system is long in the tooth with not much coming out unless E3 brings surprises. I love my 3DS to a point but I have to say that Sony's account system and infrastructure are way better and Nintendo seem happy to not improve theirs. Only time will tell and I will be watching for sure.

8bitforever commented on Review: LEGO The Hobbit (3DS):

Just for the record the Vita version is identical but the graphics and cutscenes are very nice. Too bad this version ended up bad, I have all the Lego games for my Vita and love them but assumed they were just prettier versions of the 3DS games but it sounds like they are a little more. The
WiiU version is nice though. Not sure what happened to these since Lego Lord of the Rings on 3DS was really good.

8bitforever commented on Talking Point: For Better Or For Worse, The Wi...:

@DarkKirby BINGO, the first real answer that is true for me for sure. I passed on PS4 to get WiiU and I wish I hadn't and now will end up buying a PS4 for sure. I love Nintendo but from the N64 on they just keep messing up and allowing Microsoft and Sony to move ahead. N64 used cartridges instead of CDs, GameCube used those tiny discs instead of DVD, the Wii was underpowered by a mile, and now they release the WiiU underpowered again. People won't buy another console from them unless it is amazing and at this point I don't know that they can deliver. Don't forget that Playstation now starts this summer and allows streaming of PS3 games to PS4 and Vita. That could be a huge hit and be the final nail in Nintendo's coffin.

8bitforever commented on Nintendo Reports Financial Losses As Expected,...:

I see a lot of people saying Nintendo will replace the WiiU but who is going to buy it? Most people have a PS4 or Xbox One and those are far superior and have great online and account systems. All of these things Nintendo cannot seem to get right. Another console isn't going to save them. They need to listen to investors and start getting their IPs on other systems! Nintendo is terrible at hardware and cannot hope to survive another release. If they go Sega now they could be making billions in no time. Let's be real, it ultimately comes down to profit for them.

8bitforever commented on Nintendo Reports Financial Losses As Expected,...:

@Artwark The real problem is will people buy another console from Nintendo after the WiiU? I think the WiiU has turned a lot of people away from Nintendo and they won't be coming back. They have never been able to stay ahead of competition since the N64. I think they need a huge change that somehow blows our minds. Problem is that this QOL crap is likely not it. I will support the WiiU as long as it is going but no more Nintendo for me after that.

8bitforever commented on Talking Point: What We Want To See From Ninten...:

They first need to get an account system going. I have yet to purchase more than $10 of digital from the eshop because of this. Although I have spent $100 or more on Sony's store because of their great account system. The issue is that I love the VC games but I cannot invest without that security. Next they need a good HD screen at least XL size. No more tiny screens! I always have to wait for an XL version. Why not have the XL at launch? It also needs to be as powerful as the WiiU at the least. I don't want 3D. They may even have to go down to one screen to keep costs down. Nintendo did great with their storage, unlike Somy which is way too high so keep the same strategy.

@Cyb3Rnite My Vita would like to have a word with you. HD makes a huge difference in the clarity of environments and any video clips within a game as well. The Lego games are a great example. I have a 3DS and Vita so I have owned the very same game on both. Although the versions are the same, the capability of HD in the Vita makes the games much clearer and the video cut scenes look much better.

Let's get one thing straight. Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy don't carry all the games! When Lego Hobbit came in no one had the 3DS or Vita version in stock! Well except GameStop. They carry the biggest selection of Vita games so I shop their a lot. I know the staff and they like friends now. I do admitt we have lots of stores though in my area. Two are within 3 mins drive of each other. I hope my favorite location stays open though.

@Action51 Funny, because when I tried to get my stuff back after having to buy a new 3DS XL they said tough Sh@t! That was before the Nintendo ID but it shouldn't have mattered. I lost $75 worth of games and I won't buy again because of my experience. I will play their old games on emulators before giving Nintendo another hard earned dollar of mine!

This article is a joke! Until there is an account system it doesn't matter. There is no way I am risking losing money on purchases that Nintendo won't replace if my hardware fails. You cannot have the best online shop without an account system! Nintendo doesn't care because they won't establish one, while Sony and Microsoft have had them for years.

@MrCanzine I would give it a chance. I love my Vita and it has been getting lots of games lately too. Really depends on what you like to play. I personally needed a break from Mario, etc. and have found new games that I love with Sony. Plus you can get lots of great PS1 & PSP games and they have a great account system that isn't tied to your system.

I have the Vita version and it is great. The cutscenes are very sharp and fit well with the comic book game. Not sure why so many people hate this game. I felt the same way about Mirror if Fate. Funny how 1st party games get stupid high scores even when they don't deserve it but a good third party game like this gets trashed. This is why I don't listen to any sites reviews on handheld games anymore.

8bitforever commented on Nintendo Titles Struggle for a Presence in UK ...:

That's interesting because when I went out to buy lego hobbit for my Vita, no stores in my town had it for either Vita or 3DS. Our Toys R Us did get two copies for Vita but still no 3DS version. This means that Walmart, Best Buy, Target, and Gamestop didn't get copies of the portable version on the release date. Makes no sense, are they not making enough money on the portable versions anymore and this is a tactic to stop them all together. They did change the game formula drastically beginning with Lego Marvel. Makes you wonder.

@gatorboi352 I thought the same thing only to find out that Lego Marvel sold best on 360 them PS3 then 3DS, etc. I think even the later released PS4 and XBone editions outsold WiiU. So things have really changed. I went to pick up Lego Hobbit for my Vita and no store had it in stock for Vita or 3DS. Very strange, as I had to buy it online.

@whodatninja I have a theory that the 3DS really didn't have great games planned this year either so maybe this version was made to fill the gap there too. I agree with you though as it will keep attention and buyers away from the WiiU version. I have said previously and I think should just focus on handhelds and get out of the console business.

8bitforever commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

@mostro328 Look, people are upset because this is a huge mistake in a long line of mistakes that Nintendo is making with the WiiU. My kids and I watched the direct last night and even they were wondering why the 3DS version is coming out first. Most people will only buy one version. I will be buying two copies of the 3DS game and don't plan on dipping $60 to get another version later. I had planned on buying one copy of each version but Nintendo's plan forced my hand. This will end up being the final mistake Nintendo can make with the WiiU if that version doesn't sell like gangbusters, and depending on when this actually gets released it might not. I think Nintendo just needs to focus on handhelds and admit they cannot handle the console market. They have been doing a terrible job since Nintendo 64.

8bitforever commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd April (North America):

@ikki5 3 games isn't a great lineup. I love Metroid Fusion but three games isn't anything to celebrate and based on Nintendo's VC history you'll get about two titles every month. Still doesn't matter when your WiiU breaks your games are gone, good luck with that.
