@rjejr

The only reason this thing exists is because the console it is utilised for was created a considerable time before the amiibo concept. As such, be thankful they are accommodating existing users without forcing them to upgrade to what is essentially a DSi.

@luke88

I'm not saying it will, Im saying im gonna hang all my eggs in this basket dangling off a cliff. The other consoles this gen don't interest me and the one that does is the laughing stock of the gaming world, under performs the Dreamcast of all things, and shows my kind of games and gamer are dying, oh so quickly.

I recall a few weeks ago I predicted that would be the case, and now with each passing day I see it becoming more and more realistic. Hell, this site becomes more and more Nintendoomed in the comments, why not join in right?

And hey, if the NX turns out incredible, and a huge hit, then wonderful. Great stuff. But chances are that means it panders to games I don't particularly enjoy, namely of the dark and gritty variety.

The year 2030 is pretty crap. Everyone is 15 years older, then UK has had 3 elections by that point and Final Fantasy XV still isn't out.

Iconic third party characters like Mega Man, Pac-Man and Ryu.

And the fourth guy. Name I forgot.

Anyway. NX is...not going to work. Ive come to accept that fact. Smash or no Smash, Splatoon or no Splatoon, Zelda or no Zelda. It's already in the water face down.

It's how the system works. People can put it a load of work like Chuggaa, who I think does incredibly informative and dedicated playthroughs, but those who shout at a camera and love being the poster child for homosexual stereotypes do better.

It's humans. Maybe I should start that in my own videos. Hell Im humbled to make pennies a month from 129 subscribers. Maybe the PewDiePie (What the hell is a Die Pie anyway, and where do i get one?) methods work? Iunno. No one is rewarded for talent or skill these days regardless of industry.

The system still brings joy, maybe, unless you mention it around someone at which point you get...err...last i timed it, 45 minutes of negative comments and abuse then the joy is replaced with depression.

Games are good though.

BLPs commented on Nintendo's Official UK Store Promises More ami...:

Some people will never be pleased. drinks Calling it now.

"Why isn't this in America?" bigger population
"Why do you guys get amiibo first?" Makes up for staggered releases early on
"Why d you get Woolly World early?" Because you guys have games from the 90s that we only recently got at all.

Am I missing anything?

I only have the money for one or two from the UK Store at this point. But, if it's any of the ones I lack, I'm there.

Im shocked to see GAME stocking amiibo after saying they wouldn't, and the range is just incredible. Some I never thought I'd see again.

Iunno. I have game designers who are only just buying Wii U's who don't want this game.

I think it can be a hit to those with the console, even then extending outwards due to the concept, but one thing I got old this was a weaker version of was...something by Bethesda I think? I cant remember.

Plus this wont last in the UK. No shot.

@Aromaiden

Relax? Nono. I have to be ready for the stream this weekend, but our internet keeps cutting out randomly. I have a YouTube channel to maintain, and my own personal games to play.

And yeah...I guess being a game developer is my dream. I got to university to do it. Learning how to make games is great. The crap you for what you like/play isn't. So I just kind of...lock myself away. There's a game I'm working on, very very slowly.

BLPs commented on Review: Neon Battle (Wii U eShop):

@MitchVogel @World

Kind words guys. I'm only working with what I have, and with no funding, so it's a slow but enjoyable process.

Sadly, I was considering giving out a PS4 version, since you know, that's where the gameplay style started and brought enjoyment to so many. But looking into it, it seems that market wouldn't accept the game, sadly. And upon asking around for some reason to see if it would hit an audience there at all, I just got told maybe the game sucks.

And let me tell you, that, right there, straight up kills enthusiasm. I was going to open Unity and get to work on building the HUB and stuff, but reading that, I'm knocked. -.-

BLPs commented on Super Smash Bros. Creator Pays Tribute To His ...:

Sakurai, honestly, like Iwata is someone I look up to. Focused, caring and understanding. Nothing really stops them doing what they love. I can only wish Sakurai-San can find a way to keep the focus going and continue to deliver great games. If he can do that, then a part of our gaming lives will remain. If not, we'll have to see what happens. Other companies just continue business. The suit at the top goes and the world keeps spinning but even the most hardened developers are taking a while to focus on work again.

It'll take as long as it takes. I don't want teams to work on low morale, otherwise whats the point?
