Assassinated commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

I go Skyward, Windwakers, Twilight, Between Worlds, Hourglass, Ocarina 3D, for my top picks. Then Minish, Awakening Dx, Ocarina classic, original, Tracks, 4 Sword,""adventures, 2.
Never played Past, never finished Oracles or Majora.

Assassinated commented on Princess Daisy Costume Confirmed For Bayonetta:

Why Daisy? I think Crystal from Star Fox Adventures would be a much better choice, with that staff. Or maybe a Kid Icarus outfit, ironic as it might be, fighting angels. Or maybe a Kirby outfit. Not just a functionally identical Peach recolor.

Assassinated commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's E3 Plans Are Full of...:

I remember very similar optimistic talk last year, only for it all to fall flat. I'm not falling for it again. Every event they miss, you keep saying, no, no it's a good thing, cause that means they can do this instead. And then they never do "this". This was their one chance to turn the WiiU's fortunes around, and already they're limping out of the gate. At this point they'll be very lucky if they can catch up to the Dreamcast in sales.

Assassinated commented on Nintendo Lifts The Lid On Its Plans For E3 2014:

Well, it looks like they won't be pulling off a miracle. The WiiU had one tiny chance to turn things around, and that started with the best ever showing at E3. It needed to blow Xbox and Playstation conferences out of the water to even have a hope of standing against them in the coming year. Without that, it is pretty much inevitable that the platform will crumble.

@azg When was the last time a Sonic game took 2 years from when it was officially announced to come out? I'm betting Holiday or sooner for that title. They've been working on it for a while already. Besides, the show is coming out this fall, why would they wait a whole year to release the game?

@Jaz007 What they'll have to do is make the WiiU version have much more content than the 3DS one, and make it incredibly clear that it is worth it to get the WiiU version, even if they already have it for the 3DS. Otherwise, it will indeed cause great harm to the WiiU sales.

Assassinated commented on Expect Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty To Cost Around ...:

I really hope (for their sake) this isn't exclusive to WiiU. If it is multiplatform it has a good chance of selling enough to become profitable. If it is exclusive, there is practically no chance. Unfortunately Nintendo players will not be flocking to play this in droves, even if it scores above 9/10 from most reviewers.

Assassinated commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

Do people not understand what's with the artstyle? It's colored pencils instead of crayons. It's still supposed to be hand drawn, just with a more sophisticated medium.

Assassinated commented on Interview: Takashi Tezuka on Bringing Yoshi's ...:

If I remember correctly, the last game was often knocked by reviewers for being too challenging. It sounds like they listened. Probably means there will be fewer cheap deaths with tricky platforming and enemies that knock you back.

Assassinated commented on Platinum: Nintendo Has Been The "White Knight"...:

You know, I'm actually starting to think Nintendo's stance on backwards compatibility is going to hurt them in the long run this generation. WiiU will get several must have games, but people won't buy the system, because they assume they can play them on Nintendo's next console. Many already think the console is a failure, and will refuse to buy it regardless of the games it has. Bayonetta 2 and Zelda are the big ones I think will suffer from this.

@unrandomsam Of course Zelda will sell systems, but if it comes too late, it may be too late to save the system. I no longer feel as though Mario Kart and Smash Bros can turn the system's fortunes around, and while Zelda potentially could, it has to come before the WiiU is given up on (by the general populace) as a lost cause.

Assassinated commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 13t...:

This gave no incentive for someone to invest in the WiiU. The only unannounced game is a sequel to NES Remix, hardly a system seller. The potential for the WiiU is dwindling lower and lower, to the point where it almost seems Nintendo has given up on the system. One thing is for sure, they Cannot skip the E3 press conference this year if they want any hope of the WiiU not failing completely. They have to utterly knock it out of the park at E3, or else the console truly is doomed. Publishers are pulling support left and right, and so far there's only been 5 first party games announced for this year, with only 2 having firm release dates, one of which is coming next week. If Zelda does not come this year, I fear the WiiU will be too far gone for even that to save it. There's no hype for the system anymore, and the deeper the perception is that the system is a failure, the more likely it will become one.
Nintendo needed to blow us away with this one, turn that negative perception around, and show what potential the future has in store for the WiiU. This direct did none of that.
