ArabPikachu commented on NES-Themed Nintendo 3DS XL On The Way as GameS...:

It's only been 3 years since the original Nintendo 3DS was released and a year since the Nintendo 2DS was released but they are expecting people to shell out money for special edition versions of the soon-to-be obsolete Nintendo 3DS even though the Neo-Nintendo 3DS is arriving to Japan on October 2014 and NA/EU/AU in 2015.

Even though I love Nintendo, I find this company's decision to be eyebrow-raising.

Looks like I'll have to part ways with my Nintendo 2DS soon............... :(

ArabPikachu commented on Capcom Could Be Up For Sale After Shareholders...:

If Sony purchased Capcom, many people that grew up playing Capcom games on Nintendo consoles would feel alienated and it would add to Sony's debt, making such a hypothetical situation to be a double whammy for Sony

If Nintendo purchased Capcom, many people that grew up playing Capcom games on Playstation platforms would feel alienated.

Speaking as someone that has been mostly playing Capcom games on both Sony and Nintendo platforms, I'd neither want Capcom purchased by those two companies.

Since Japan has a law that protects Japanese companies from being purchased by non-Japanese companies, I feel relieved to at least know having Microsoft purchase Capcom is out of the question because I'm not the type of person that'd shell out money to play Capcom games on an Xbox-brand console.

@ThreadShadow
I agree that having a first-party developer purchase Capcom or even a few Capcom IPs would be adding too much weight on the shoulders.

@yuwarite
At this point, I hope Capcom makes a rebound because I wouldn't even trust a 3rd-party Japanese developer to purchase the company.

@henmii
I wouldn't be so quick to say Capcom's become a dead-giant.

ArabPikachu commented on Pokémon Omega Ruby & Pokémon Alpha Sapphire ...:

Similar to how the Gamecube version of the first Resident Evil game was an RE1 remake built from the ground up, it'd be safe to say that Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire would be built from the ground up remakes of Ruby & Sapphire versions.

I'd personally expect these games to be more successful remakes than Firered, Leafgreen, Soulsilver, and Heartgold versions (which had minor differences from their original counterparts).
