It's a new IP so it just won't sell as well as COD or Assassin's Creed by virtue of that fact alone. I also don't think it will be as good as people are hoping so that's likely to limit sales as well, although it's not really my kind of game so I'm not interested myself.



CaptOlimar30 commented on Yoshi, Sheik, and Zero Suit Samus Confirmed as...:

I'm actually more pumped for Sheik's announcement as a stand-alone player than Charizard's announcement as a standalone. Sheik's always been my main and the only thing hampering playing as her constantly is that I mistakenly press B-down sometimes and it doesn't do anything of use.

Now Sheik is going to be a fully balanced character on her own which is really just perfect! I can't wait to see how Sakurai comes to balance Sheik now!!



CaptOlimar30 commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

I'm actually thrilled about this. I worried that I would naturally want to play the Wii U version more than the 3DS version and since I'm normally near my Wii U I would never play the 3DS one. I do however agree that winter is later than I expected and much later than I preferred since I would've like having a summer to play it against friends on the big screen. At least I'll get a head start at the new characters over the summer while I can play Mario Kart 8 with friends!



CaptOlimar30 commented on Japanese Prime Minister Says the Country's Eco...:

The comparison between Nintendo jumping from Hanafuda cards to videogames and the suggested leap from videogames to QOL entertainment doesn't ring entirely true. The QOL and videogames markets are markets Nintendo is seeking to combine and have been seeking to combine arguably since the Wii and pretty blatantly since Wii Fit. If Nintendo made videogames about Hanafuda cards then the comparison would be a little more truthful.

However, there is a clearer message that Nintendo can learn from the Shinzo's interpretation of their own past. He points out that the important thing for Japan is to blend new ideas with old ones and I think this is something Nintendo should do within the videogame markets. They should look toward their past but also think about where they want to be in the future and I think part of doing this for them involves QOL, it's not a leap as was Hanafuda cards to videogames but instead it's a natural progression.



CaptOlimar30 commented on Zero Escape Series Creator Considering New Opt...:

Virtue's Last Reward completely necessitates a sequel for this series to even be considered a series in my mind. The game's connect so much it needs a true finale in the third or I don't even consider it worth playing especially since I'm fully confident he has a full good story developed for the third game based largely off the first two.

Here's hoping the third game is fully funded and released! As long as it is, I'm sure it'll be amazing.



CaptOlimar30 commented on Mario Kart 8 Accelerates to Number One on Amaz...:

With so many playable characters I'm guessing this game will be my favorite since Double Dash. The game also happens to look amazing (level design and graphics) and zero-gravity is just a great idea! I can't wait til (the end of) May.



CaptOlimar30 commented on Wii U and 3DS Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 13...:

The hype is so setting in. I'm strongly suspicious of a Luigi's Mansion for the Wii U given the success of Dark Moon on the 3DS both critically and popularly. Sakurai's announced a pretty good amount of SSB characters of late so I'm expecting them to announce it'll launch in an end-of-year month, say October, but hopeful it'll launch in Spring. Surely Mario Kart 8 will get a big representation and Donkey Kong Country Returns will probably be their main concern but I'm still holding out for info on X.

The 3DS side of things concerns me less since there are so many great first and third party titles I've yet to play on it that I don't really need any new announcements for it to keep me entertained with it. It'd still be nice to see a trailer or two of some of their quickly announced games like Triple Deluxe.

Only 3 more hours!



CaptOlimar30 commented on Feature: 10 Nintendo DS Games We Want To See O...:

Most comments have nailed most of the games I'd like to see on the WiiU: 999, The World Ends With You and Okamiden would all be awesome in full screen console play. But no one has suggested the best franchise ever: Professor Layton would be awesome if only to see those beautiful anime cutscenes upscaled.

On a side note, I'm surprised to see Spirit Tracks suggested as opposed to Phantom Hourglass since I figured most people highly prefer PH.



CaptOlimar30 commented on Satoru Iwata Announces a "Quality of Life" Pla...:

This is SO confusing it really is unbelievable. There must have been a massive amount of explaining by Nintendo for them to logically start talking about a QOL machine during a financial meeting.

They're a videogame company, if they just randomly start talking about fitness and showing graphics like that flowchart investors would've went mad! Why QOL? Why Nintendo for quality of life? What does this have to do with videogames? How is this going to be a profitable venture? What does it mean for the future of WiiU?

Announcing things prematurely like this is slightly ridiculous and I frankly have no idea what any of this actually means for the future of Nintendo. I'm running on close to zero love for Nintendo at this point even though I certainly tremendously respect their games.

Hopefully they meant what I've seen about going hard on licensing their IPs for 'digital goods' to studios that will make a 'win-win' situation for them both but if we don't see proof of this soon then I might be too heartbroken to continue.



CaptOlimar30 commented on Satoru Iwata Confirms That DS Games Are Coming...:

If they can figure out a way to decently account for the horrendous upscaled graphics then this is surely a winner. I'd love nothing more than to play the Professor Layton's on the TV. Honestly if the 3DS library also opens up on the WiiU (although that's highly unlikely and probly makes no actual business sense) I'd be happy forever!



CaptOlimar30 commented on Video: Just Look For The U On The Box, Nintend...:

This ad really does cover all of the bases that leave people so confused about the Wii U. Hopefully they can get this message across to a better audience than NintendoLife and people who seek out commercials on the internet though because I don't think that's the audience that needs to know this info. But I'm sure they'll manage, they at least understand most of their shortcomings at this point and with this ad and the last Nintendo Direct I have more faith than ever.



CaptOlimar30 commented on DFC Intelligence Lowers Wii U Lifetime Sales F...:

Calling the Wii-U the system for core gamers was definitely a mistake on Nintendo's part but I do believe it can still be a system for core gamers if Nintendo releases the big games we all want since their console is so unique when compared to the PS4 and XBox One.



CaptOlimar30 commented on Soapbox: Super Mario 3D World's Playful Whimsy...:

@banacheck I agree, PS3 games tend to be overgeneralized but unfortunately most of the titles you mentioned underperform in sales although they are certainly as simply magical and fun as Nintendo's games. Nintendo isn't performing as well as they should either so the worry seems to be that tastes have moved on from having a fun time to having a hyper-realistic time which I think we all hope isn't the case.
