CaviarMeths commented on Michel Ancel Forms New Studio While Continuing...:

"Ambitious" and "pushing the boundaries" kinda just tells me "We spent like a kajillion dollars on this and have unrealistic expectations for it, but we'll blame that on the consumer, so it's OK." Also means that a Wii U version is unlikely.

Good for Ancel though. He has a very creative mind, so it's a good move for him to stick with Ubisoft to pay the bills and work on passion/vanity projects through his indie studio. Like the Christian Bale of developers. You do Batman so that you can afford to do whatever the heck you want in between.

CaviarMeths commented on Video: The 10 Best Zelda Games As Selected By You:

If you swapped out ALBW or SS for MM, that's pretty much identical to what my Top 5 would look like. I think OoT and WW are a cut above the rest, easily #1 and #2, and then the next 4 games (ALttP, TP, ALBW, SS) can be arranged in pretty well any order depending on my mood.

CaviarMeths commented on Looks Like You Can Only Install 300 Games And ...:

Considering I don't give 2 hoots about apps and wish I could get rid of the ones that come pre-installed on the thing, I don't think this will be a problem for me at all. I'll never have 290-odd games on my 3DS.

Still better than the Vita's 100 app limit though.

CaviarMeths commented on Bravely Default Flutters Gracefully Past The O...:

I wish more Japanese companies would realize that they weren't doing themselves any favours by trying to make their long-running series appeal more to Western gamers.

  • Resident Evil 6 is the lowest selling numbered RE game ever.
  • Final Fantasy has been trending downwards since X, even the HD remaster of X managed to outsell the most recent new FF.
  • Ninja Gaiden Z sold hilariously awfully, selling less on PS3 and 360 combined than Razor's Edge sold on Wii U (Epic Un-achievement of 2014 Award, right there).

So I'm not surprised here. The message Bravely Default sends to Japanese publishers should be that "We liked the games you used to make, why did you change them?"

@TeeJay Not a Gamestop lol. Locally owned place. They give me about $5-15 each for the games I bring in (granted, I bring in games in great condition, with cases and manuals, etc). Bought the Borderlands 2 Vita bundle ($200) there a few months back entirely on store credit.

CaviarMeths commented on Nintendo Download: 24th July (North America):

Pretty sure that Trine 2 has been on discount so many times that anyone who was remotely interested in it has already bought it. It may as well be permanently discounted to $8.

Nothing for me again. Think the last week where there was anything at all for me was... Mario Kart 8? Gosh, there's been such a drought, even including indy and VC releases.

I love Koei's designs for Impa and Zelda. I would dare call them just as good or better than Nintendo's own designs.

Sheik's design, on the other hand, is a little weird.

And yeah, like 9-10 for hype. This game is going to be just swell.

Attacking people who illegally download content is not the way to combat piracy anyway. You combat piracy by providing a better service to the widest user base possible at a great price. Netflix and Steam know it. Nintendo needs to hurry up and figure out this whole internet thing.

CaviarMeths commented on Meet LeapTV, The Wii Challenger in 2014:

Doesn't seem like it will upset the market too much. They might sell a few to parents of kids who ask for the Wii U for Christmas, and then parents see this $150 thing sitting on the shelf next to it and get that instead.

CaviarMeths commented on New Fatal Frame Will Be Spooking The Wii U In ...:

@Ralek85 Commercials are and should be aimed at children and people over 30, because nobody else watches TV. They're especially not watching the children's programming channels that those commercials air on. I've never seen a 2DS commercial because I'm not sitting at home watching cartoons at 4 o' clock in the afternoon.

As for E3, both Bayonetta and Devil's Third got their fair share of the Treehouse focus. Neither felt neglected at all. Neither are 1st party titles, but that doesn't really matter. Neither is Fatal Frame V. However, both Bayonetta and Devil's Third were properties that were dying and Nintendo pumped their OWN money into seeing them realized. They WANT these M-rated games on their machine and they WANT people to know that they exist, and were willing to use money out of their own pockets to see that happen.

And Fatal Frame isn't some dying IP that Nintendo needs to swoop in and save. It's owned by Koei Temco, who have plenty of their own cash and worldwide subsidiaries to do themselves.

@Ralek85 Not quite sure where Assassin's Creed, Ninja Gaiden, Bayonetta, and Devil's Third fit into this "family-friendly" image that you've conjured, but I'd definitely consider Fatal Frame more appropriate for younger players than Resident Evil: Revelations or ZombiU.

CaviarMeths commented on Yokai Watch 2 Sells a Whopping 1.3 Million Cop...:

Absolutely unreal for YW2. For one, it outsold the first game's cumulative total in its first week, and for another, look at that market share! 90% of all software sold this week in Japan was from one game alone! That's an absurdly massive success for Level-5.

It would be interesting to know if Nintendo is closely monitoring the digital sales of the GS games to gauge interest in a sequel.

I hope so. Camelot deserves to be doing more with their time than just Mario Golf and Mario Tennis.

CaviarMeths commented on The NES Story Began On This Day 31 Years Ago:

Before my time. I was introduced to gaming in a time when NES was still very popular and the SNES was just breaking into the scene. The N64 was the first system I was actually old enough to ride the hype train from announcement to release though.

Apparently the Sega Genesis and I have birthdays about 6 weeks apart though. Late 1988 for the both of us.

CaviarMeths commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:

I somehow don't see it, especially considering how well the PS3 is still selling in most regions. The 360 is dead everywhere except America, but people are still buying PS3s. And they should be. They're cheap now and have a fantastic library.

But the thing is that the number of Nintendo-only console owners is quite small. Most gamers had a Wii to play the Marios and Zeldas and whatnot, alongside their PS3 or 360 for everything else. I don't see that changing majorly this gen. I really don't think there will be many people buying a PS4 that didn't have a PS3 or 360 last gen.

CaviarMeths commented on AeternoBlade Update Brings Two DLC Options, In...:

I don't think that it's fair to say that Nintendo is "getting in on the action" in reference to sexism when both male and female characters were featured in the Fire Emblem DLC pack. :P

I guess this is good news for the 8 people who bought AeternoBlade through.
