Male, 23, Netherlands Antilles

I´ve owned almost every gaming system since 1995. I used to own a SNES, N64, PSone, Gameboy Advance, GameCube, PSP, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. I´m looking forward to owning the Steam Machine or PS4 in the future.

8thGenConsoles commented on DFC Intelligence Lowers Wii U Lifetime Sales F...:

@zeldagaymer93 Actually it's you who needs to show me where did you get your figures from. It was reported that Wii U sold 3.91 million units as of September 30, 2013 and now we are in November. Almost 2 months later and Wii U has already reached 4 million units sold. Think about the Zelda bundle, Wii Party U bundle and the Mario bundle, it's already there at 4 million.

Lol so let me get this straight: just because most people YOU know are not interested in a Wii U that means that the console will fail? Who are you again? And how many of those people you know are even gamers? I'm sorry but your logic fails.

I think you're the one who will be biting your tongue because right now you're acting like you're a time traveler, you "know" what's gonna happen in the future, you "know" Wii U is doomed. I need to remind you that many people said the DS would fail, the Wii would fail, the 3DS would fail and none of them failed. Nintendo proved everyone wrong. You will be biting your tongue if Wii U becomes more successful than you thought it would be.

PS4 sold 1 million because of hype, nothing more. The media overhyped the PS4 because it has 8GB of RAM and because it didn't have DRM like the Xbox One. PS4 was overhyped and people will release sooner or later that it didn't live up to the hype. Plus how many of those 1 million PS4's were bought at launch just to re-sell them online?

8thGenConsoles commented on DFC Intelligence Lowers Wii U Lifetime Sales F...:

@zeldagaymer93 The only ignorant person here is you and for obvious reasons. First of all, the Wii U has already sold more than 4 million units world wide. Second, just because the PS4 sold 1 million at launch doesn't mean that Wii U is doomed. Dreamcast was very successful at launch and then it failed. Wii U also sold about a million unit at launch and now it's struggling. My point is that anything can happen in the future. The Wii U can do better than 25 million if Nintendo wants to and my guess is that Nintendo wants Wii U to sell at least 40 million units this gen. You also talk about Nintendo not advertising the Wii U which is funny because I've seen Wii U commercials on TV and theaters and gamers will get the chance to play Wii U games in malls and cruise ships this holiday. I suggest you wait and see what's gonna happen, don't act like you know what's gonna happen in the future.

8thGenConsoles commented on Review: Rayman Legends (Wii U):

@Peach64 Stop making excuses for Ubisoft. No one cares that they decided to make Rayman a multiplat. What's stupid is how they delayed the finished Wii U version of Rayman Legends. Stop defending 3rd party publishers, they don't deserve it.

8thGenConsoles commented on Weirdness: SEGA Employee Has a Bad Day, Says B...:

@Rafie Putting you on the same category as me? LOL I have never called you bias or a fanboy. You're the one accusing me of being biased. You can't tell me that I shouldn't play on any systems. I can tolerate Nintendo fanboys and at one point I could tolerate Sony and MS fanboys but now I can't. They get worse and worse each generation. And just to be clear, fanboys aren't the only reason why I won't buy a PS4. The main reason I won't buy a PS4 is because it doesn't make sense to buy a PS4 just like how it doesn't make sense to buy a Vita. I would much rather buy a PS5 but that's if there will be a Playstation 5 in the future. Sony is not the same company they used to be in the 90's.

8thGenConsoles commented on Weirdness: SEGA Employee Has a Bad Day, Says B...:

@Rafie I didn't do that to myself, you're just the typical gamer who likes to accuse others of being biased just because they said something negative about Sony or just because they are defending Nintendo. You fail to understand that I'm not denying that all platforms have fanboys, they all do but I think that some fanboys are worse than others. Sony and MS fanboys in my opinion are worse than Nintendo fanboys. Nintendo fanboys are not innocent, just less evil than the other fanboys. That's just the way I see it and you can't change my mentality unless you prove me wrong and so far you haven't done that.

Let me repeat myself in case you still don't get it: Nintendo fanboys are NOT innocent, all fanboys are annoying and stupid but I've never seen Nintendo fanboys hate other platforms as much as Sony, MS and PC fanboys.

8thGenConsoles commented on Weirdness: SEGA Employee Has a Bad Day, Says B...:

@Rafie There's no point in continuing this argument with you. You just think I'm biased because I'm a Nintendo guy. I like a few Sony products but I just don't like Sony fanboys and for good reasons. The reason why I understand PC gamers' hatred towards consoles is because PCs are years ahead of consoles and PC fanboys believe that consoles are holding them back. They believe that PC gaming would be even more advanced if consoles didn't exist. I can understand something like this but it's still no excuse to hate us console gamers. The console War just doesn't make sense and you know it. But yeah I'm done arguing about this. I can't talk to someone who just thinks I'm biased.

8thGenConsoles commented on Weirdness: SEGA Employee Has a Bad Day, Says B...:

@Rafie Nintendo fans are allowed to act like their console is the best just like how Sony fans are allowed to think that. We all have different taste but what bothers me is how much HATE Sony fanboys have for Nintendo and its fans. Why so much hatred for a company that wants to entertain people? It just doesn't make any sense to me. It seems to me that Sony fanboys are angry that 1st party Nintendo games are considered the best in the world. Sony fanboys aren't the only ones attacking Nintendo i know that but it seems to me like Sony fanboys are the ones that make the most noise. PC gamers are just as bad as Sony fans but the difference is that I can somewhat understand why PC fanboys think they are better than console gamers (even though i don't agree) but I don't get Sony fanboys hatred for Nintendo. You are once again acting as if Nintendo fanboys are just as bad as other fanboys but they are not. Nintendo fanboys are annoying but not to the extreme like other fanboys.

@Rafie I know what you're saying but I can't agree I'm sorry. I have never seen a Nintendo fanboy act the same way that Sony, Xbox and PC fanboys do. PC fanboys are constantly attacking console gamers and thinking they are superior. Sony fanboys are constantly attacking Nintendo and Xbox fans and then you have Nintendo fanboys defending themselves from Sony fanboys. I don't know much about Xbox fans but i think they are almost as bad as Sony fans. The proof that you want from me is everywhere, just look around. Go to Nintendo videos on YouTube and see Sony fanboys attack Nintendo fans for no reason. Look how much Sony fanboys attacked Xbox fans and vice versa. Nintendo fanboys can be annoying too obviously but I think that most of the times they are defending themselves from the bullies that are Sony, Xbox and PC fanboys

@Rafie I know what you're trying to do. You want me to believe that all fanboys are equally bad but i disagree. I can't prove to you that Sony fanboys are worse but I speak from experience and that's what matters to me. Fanboys are everywhere, but some fanboys are more aggressive than others. Can you prove to me that all fanboys are equally bad? You can't.

And then 3rd party publishers complain when their games don't sell well on Nintendo systems. You need to release Nintendo versions the same day as the other versions.

And everyone says the Wii is dead but developers are still making games for it so it's not dead yet.

8thGenConsoles commented on SEGA Reportedly Interested in Acquiring Atlus'...:

@Peach64 Yeah because Eternal Darkness was for everyone right? Geist was for everyone right? Bayonetta 2 will be more family friendly for the casuals to buy right? The answer to these questions is no. Nintendo has produced rated M games in the past and Miyamoto isn't the only developer for Nintendo. There's no way that Nintendo will ruin any of your favorite games from Atlus.

@Peach64 There was a time when i used to agree with everything you said but lately you've been saying things that make little to no sense at all. Why would Nintendo ruin Persona and Shin Megami Tensei? When was the last time Nintendo ruined a franchise? It has never happened. Just be honest, you just dont want Atlus to become Nintendo exclusive which is why you want SEGA to buy them.

@DerpSandwich Your opinion was proved wrong today so yeah you're kinda wrong. Pikmin 3 is the number 1 selling game in Japan and the Wii U is the 2nd best selling console in Japan, behind the 3DS XL. Let's see what the numbers will be in North America and Europe. And the commercial makes Pikmin 3 look "lame" because TV commercials are made for casual gamers. Hardcore gamers don't need TV commercials

8thGenConsoles commented on Ubisoft CEO Admits ZombiU Sales Were Disappoin...:

I think Ubisoft is lying but let's assume that it's true, ZombiU wasn't profitable. There are 3 reasons why ZombiU didn't sell:

1. The reviews for the game were negative or not very positive. Gamers these days won't buy a game if it got a low score from IGN and other big video game sites.

2. It's a Wii U game with Xbox 360 graphics. Wii U can produce much better graphics. Ubisoft didn't use Wii U's power to make ZombiU.

3. The game was rushed and everyone knows that. They needed to spent more time on it.

8thGenConsoles commented on SteamWorld Dig Dev: Wii U Is "Very Powerful", ...:

Why does Nintendo has to explain everything? Why can't gamers today think for themselves? I think it's sad that gamers these days need to be convinced to buy a console. The only thing Nintendo needs to do in my opinion is let everyone know that Wii U exists, they don't need to explain what's so great about the Wii U. You are smart enough to think for yourself and decide if you want to buy one or not.

When I first heard about the Wii U i was sold, I knew what is so great about Wii U so why can't other gamers do what i did which is do some research?

@KAHN I'm a fanboy? Pachter is smart? Really dude? REALLY? Pachter said 3DS would fail but it didnt. Pachter said PS4 would be 350 but its 399. Pachter said Xbox One would be 400 but its 500. He said DS would fail but it sold 150 million. I can go on and on about Pachter's stupidity but I proved my point. Pachter is wrong more often then not which is why he's not smart. Everyone who agrees with him is an idiot and you're a bigger idiot for calling me a fanboy without proof. Don't let my username fool you idiot, I've probably owned more Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft consoles than you.

I don't know anything about this game so I'm not sure what to think of this. I'm not surprised that this game is not coming to Wii U. People want us to believe that this is just business, nothing personal against Nintendo but I don't believe it for one second. I'll believe it one day when 3rd party publishers start showing support for Nintendo. Everyone is putting their games on PS4 and Xbox One, both of these have an install base of 0 and yet the Wii U, with almost 4 million owners gets ignored. Don't tell me that 3rd party publishers don't have something against Nintendo because I won't believe you.

8thGenConsoles commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2013 - Sum...:

@Rafie Took me 5 days to reply back sorry. It seems like you don't understand what I'm saying, you think you do but I have a feeling you don't. Instead of giving you another long answer, I'm gonna try to keep this one short and sweet.

I didn't say that you said that Wii U is not next gen, I said that other gamers think it's not next-gen because they are ignorant. I know you're smarter than the average Sony and Microsoft fan which is why I don't mind having a debate with you. Yes I'm annoyed that Devs and publishers are dismissing the Wii U but am I taking my frustrations on those other consoles? No I'm not. I'm just saying that those consoles aren't as great as people think. It's mostly my opinion but there's some fact in what I'm saying, it's not just 100% opinion. The reason why it seems like Wii U competes with old consoles in graphics is because developers aren't trying to make Wii U games look better than PS3/360. They are literally just porting games to Wii U.

I'm not downplaying the PS2. DVD player in a console IS innovative but the problem is that movies has nothing to do with video games. A DVD Player enhances your console experience but NOT your gaming experience which is why it doesn't really count.

1. You're right, I never bought the PS2 but I played it at friend's house many times. I even borrowed the PS2 once and was able to compare it to PS1. PS2 is just an upgrade to PS1 believe it or not. Is Wii U just an upgraded Wii? No because the Wii U Gamepad is completely different from the Wii Remote so the experience is completely different. Wii U also has the Nintendo Network that Wii doesn't have and the Wii U is HD while Wii is SD so it's not just an upgrade I'm sorry. Games built from the ground up for the GameCube were superior graphically than PS2 games. Compare RE4 on GameCube and RE4 on PS2 and you'll see. Compare wrestling games on GameCube and the ones on PS2 and you'll see. F-Zero and Metroid weren't the only games that showed that GameCube was more powerful. Yes the EyeToy was a huge innovation of the PS2. Remember I never said that PS2 didn't innovate but it was less innovative than GameCube and PS2's innovations didn't make a huge impact. DVD was extremely popular yes which is why PS2 sold 150 million units but I'm talking about innovations that enhances BOTH your console and gaming experience. A DVD Player only enhances your console experience, it does nothing for games.

2. Even if you wanted to say that GameCube is just an upgrade to N64 you can't say that because it's not true. GameCube was different from the N64. I wasn't wrong about PS2 because it IS an upgrade to PS1 and I already explained why. GameCube's discs are innovating but it's not just because of the size of the discs, but because those discs reduced loading times. I never had problems with GameCube games having long loading times, never ever. PSP's UMD discs are innovating in the sense that PSP was the first handheld to use discs instead of cartridges. You never heard of the Gameboy Player for GameCube? Here's a link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gameboy_Player

GameCube is inferior to PS2? LOL no, absolutely not. GameCube didn't play music because it's a GAMING CONSOLE, it doesn't have to play music because music has nothing to do with video games. A Music Player in your console only improves your console experience, not gaming experience. PS2 is NOT the first console to be backwards compatible I'm sorry. The Atari 7800 is backwards compatible with Atari 2600 so no that's not PS2's innovation. I'm not downplaying PS2, I'm stating facts, look it up. GameCube IS more innovative dude, just take the time to compare the 2 like i did and you'll see.

I wouldn't say that Wii U is failing, that's not the correct word for Wii U's situation. I rather use the word struggling, Wii U is struggling. Gamers want games to buy the system, if they put their games on Wii U than it will sell. The reason why their games don't sell is because they give Wii U owners inferior ports. We will not buy inferior ports. Put cool games and people will buy them. Wii U is not expensive to develop for, Ubisoft said this themselves so they are supposed to be putting their games on Wii U. PS4 and Xbox One are very expensive to develop for and yet every 3rd party developer is making games for PS4 and Xbox One. Xbox One is expected to sell less than the Wii U and yet developers are making games for Xbox One. Just business you say? No I think it's something against Nintendo as well but they will never admit it.

I repeat, I'm not downplaying other consoles because Wii U is struggling. I'm just being honest with you and you don't seem to like my honesty. Sony consoles are cool, I owned a PS1, PS3 and PSP, I also owned Xbox 360 and they are not as great as people think they are. Call it an opinion if you want but there is always some truth in everything I say and if there isn't truth in it than I'm just lying but I'm not lying now and I have no reason to lie. I'm always comparing consoles because I don't want to have multiple consoles in 1 generation. I buy the console that is the best in my opinion. This current generation was an exception, I was forced to sell my PS3 because I was broke and then when things got better, I bought a 360 because it was cheaper. That's why I owned 2 consoles in the 7th gen. Wii was cool but I don't like motion control so I skipped the Wii.

I respect your opinion because you're smart and a true gamer but I disagree with your point on view and I explained why. I don't know everything about PS4 but I doubt that Sony can convince me to have 2 consoles this gen. If I buy a PS4 is to play a game that isn't even available for PC. Xbox One is very anti-consumer so I will NEVER buy an Xbox One, it's not worth my money at all.

I told you that i would keep this one short but I couldn't. Epic fail lol. I will write 2 more articles/blogs today or tomorrow and I will link them to you so you can give me your feedback if you want.

8thGenConsoles commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2013 - Sum...:

@Rafie Dude...saying that Wii U is not next-gen is NOT an opinion, you are just incorrect and ignorant if you say that. Most gamers today don't know what the word generation means which is sad. PS4 and Xbox One is always named in relevance to that which is why I mention it. Of course Wii U is competing with PS3 and 360 because the other 2 next gen consoles aren't out yet. Xbox 360 was competing with PS2 and GameCube until PS3 and Wii came out.

My opinion has some truth in it, it's not 100% opinion. Let me explain to you why GameCube was more innovative or had more great ideas than PS2. Let's start with the PS2:

  • The PS2 was nothing more then an upgraded PS1. How do I know this? Because I owned a PS1. I'm not a Sony hater. PS2 had the same controller as the PS1 with just a few minor differences. PS2 had better graphics and online gaming. That's it, it was just an upgrade. PS2 had the Eyetoy also but it wasn't a success because most people didnt like or didnt care about it. PS2 had a DVD player which is great but that doesn't count as innovation because movies has nothing to do with gaming.
  • GameCube was not just an upgrade, it was different from the N64. GameCube introduced mini discs to the gaming industry which wasn't well received by 3rd party developers but it was cool because GameCube didn't have loading times like PS2 games. GameCube also started a trend with the Wavebird controller. The Wavebird was a wireless controller, something that the other consoles didn't have. GameCube also introduced the Gameboy Player. It allowed you to play Gameboy games on your TV. It was also possible to connect several GameCubes to each other and have a big gaming party. 8 to 16 people could play a GameCube game at the same time in one room. GameCube also allowed you to connect your GBA Advance to the GameCube and have a second screen experience.

Do you see the difference? GameCube did so much more than the PS2 and yet most people bought a PS2 instead. Nintendo doesn't get enough credit for their innovations and great ideas. GameCube was more innovative than PS2 but no one cared.

I could go on and on because this is a trend not just my opinion but you get the point i guess. Nintendo consoles are more innovative. And yes innovation does better because new consoles are supposed to do things never seen before and that's how you progress also. The Gameplay always improves when Nintendo releases a new system but same thing cannot be said about Sony because Sony is using the same Dualshock controller since 1996. Sure there are minor differences between Dualshock 3 and 4 but there's a huge difference between the Wii Remote and the Wii U Gamepad.

I NEVER said that Nintendo has no blame at all, I just said that 3rd party devs are more to blame for the lack of 3rd party games on Wii U. Nintendo should fix their relationship with 3rd parties but 3rd parties need to stop being lazy and start developing great games that will sell on Nintendo systems. I understand that if a game won't sell on Wii U then don't make a Wii U version but instead of abandoning the Wii U, try to create new IP's for the Wii U or bring back old IP's and make great new games for Wii U. One of the reasons Nintendo fans don't buy 3rd party games on Nintendo systems is because these developers keep giving us Nintendo fans inferior ports or crappy 3rd party exclusives that aren't even worth renting at Gamefly. If Wii U is not doing well then help Nintendo out like Ubisoft is doing, release cool 3rd party games on Wii U to make the system more successful. Yes it's Nintendo's responsibility to make the Wii U sell but 3rd party publishers should be willing to help Nintendo out. Ubisoft is helping, Capcom is helping, Sega is helping, Square Enix is somewhat helping. Why isn't EA trying to help? Why isn't Rockstar helping? Why isn't 2K Sports helping? These are successful publishers that could help the Wii U if they wanted to because they have enough money but they don't want to. If Rockstar announces GTA 5 or GTA Chinatown Wars 2 for Wii U then you'll see how many gamers will take the Wii U more seriously.

I'm not a fanboy and I don't hate Sony. I bought a PS1, PS3 and PSP and I never bought a N64 or Wii. Sometimes I sound like a fanboy because I'm a very passionate person but I've only bought 3 of Nintendo's 6 consoles and 2 of Sony's 4 consoles. I also do not hate Microsoft, I bought the 360 in 2011.

But this generation, I will be a Wii U only gamer because I'm not impressed with the PS4 and Xbox One. Sure there are still things i don't know about PS4 but I'm pretty sure that i know most things about PS4 already.

8thGenConsoles commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2013 - Sum...:

@Rafie For the last time, I didn't bash PS4 and Xbox One. I didn't downplay them as much as you think. People say Wii U is not next gen and I defended the Wii U. It's not about Wii U being my console of preference, it's about ignorant gamers saying stupid things like "Wii U is not next gen". If Wii U is not next gen than PS4 and Xbox One are not next gen either.

I don't have to see what PS4 can do to know that it's not more innovative than Wii U. Sony is very predictable and they've been like this for a decade now. GameCube was more innovative than PS2, Wii is more innovative than PS3, Wii U is from what I've seen so far more innovative than PS4, 3DS is more innovative than Vita, DS was more innovate than PSP. This is a trend that won't stop anytime soon. Sony only cares about making 3rd party devs happy which is why Sony consoles are so powerful because devs want consoles to be similar to PC. Nintendo consoles aren't trying to be like PCs which is why they are more innovative.

I put most of the blame on 3rd party devs, not Nintendo and here's why: 3rd party developers refuse to take risks with Nintendo consoles, they don't embrace or support Nintendo's innovations and great ideas. A lot of developers are too scared to make games for Wii U because they don't want to take risks with the Wii U Gamepad. 3rd party Devs want to play it safe by spending most of their budget on graphics because they know that's what gamers today love. Gameplay is taking a backseat to graphics nowadays for this reason. Graphics is what gamers want the most these days, gameplay and story is second on their wishlist

Wii U's focus is on gameplay not graphics which is why developers are not developing games for Wii U.

@pntjr NBA 2K might be awesome but not to the point where I would regret buying a Wii U that's just stupid in my opinion. EA sport games suck so whatever. The Wii U is already getting more 3rd party support than what Wii got last gen. If you want to sell your Wii U for a PS4 then do it but I hope you don't stay here on Nintendo Life talking in a negative way about Wii U after you buy a PS4.

I won't regret buying a Wii U just because lazy developers don't want to put their games on Wii U.

8thGenConsoles commented on NBA 2K14 Won't Be Slam Dunking On Wii U:

Nintendo needs to start making their own series of sport games and I'm not talking about Wii Sports or Mario Golf and things like that. I'm talking about realistic sport games exclusively to Nintendo consoles. Bring back NBA Courtside, start developing Nintendo Pennant Chase Baseball again, bring back Wave Race, bring back 1080 Snowboarding, make a football game for Wii U and 3DS.

If 2K Sports and EA Sports dont want to support Wii U then fine but Nintendo needs to do something, they need someone to develop realistic sport games exclusively for Nintendo platforms. Bring back all the exclusive sport games I mentioned.
