XBOX ONE is backward compatible!...I mean come on. To be fair, Nintendo do their own Direct feeds with news every now and again but did little to impress at E3 this year. As much as I love Nintendo, not everyone wants Mario Maker. I think I was pleased to see Starfox announced. They could at least officially update the world on the amiibo shortages but hey.



CerberusAzdin commented on New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Edition Promotion...:

It is a bit annoying how Nintendo have tackled this promotion as many Members will miss out. This is only helping some people make more money on Ebay really, where some will pay twice as much for it.

If anything, and I hope I'm right on this one, it serves as a good indication that the New 3DS is literally round the corner. Expect a Nintendo Direct very soon guys. For those who got the email, hats off guys and enjoy it as you see fit.

Platinum Games are the best! Glad that they are focusing on Nintendo consoles. They truly specialise in beat'em ups (Bayonetta, Mad World, Wonderful 101) and they do a great job. I just wish they had the rights to at least finish off the Viewtiful Joe trilogy….



CerberusAzdin commented on The Monster Hunter Tri Servers Will be Shutdow...:

By far, the best online Wii game if not the best Wii game altogether. Its been a rollercoaster with Tri; met really cool people, had arguments with others and all the damn Deviljhos in between.

As sad as this news is, we must thank Capcom for having the server open for so, so long and for letting us enjoy the online experience for free.

BUT FEAR NOT!! We have a group on Facebook dedicated to gathering hunters in London. We specialise in creating weekly events so people like you can meet other hunters and tackle quests together.

Add us and we will keep you posted on future events! There is one this Saturday which is going to be our best one yet!!:

Best game, best console, best Nintendo era. This game is what got me into action RPGs back in the day. It's a work of labour and love; from the graphics to the soundtrack. OoT is a masterpiece in its own right, but this game will never age. It be great if we could download it on 3DS.



CerberusAzdin commented on Capcom Seeks a Western "Breakthrough" With Mon...:

I hope this game not only creates a bigger following this time round but it creates enough impact to make Capcom release more games outside Japan. There are thousands of people who import japanese consoles to play these games and this should stop now! There is a massive Monster Hunter following in the EU and US and this is the chance we have to prove how badly we want this franchise on our shores. Ryozo Tsujimoto wants us to play and truly enjoy Monster Hunter here in the west as he had a Q&A with gamers on Facebook about the game and is even releasing a patch in April to play on the gamepad. Not only that, but the fact that US and EU servers will be able to play together for the first time is a great move. They have done their research in order to make this work and it will pay off. One thing I'd like to see is real Gathering Halls like the one they had in London in 2009, that would really help the 3DS sales.

The success of this version will start slow and rapidly pick up due to the fact that it is an awesome game and that it will boost Wii U sales dramatically. The Miiverse is catered for this game; people can talk, draw and comment on hunts and strategies. Anyone who reads this, has a Wii U or is getting one just because, add me to your list!

I think that the success of both the Wii U and PS4 rely on its fan base and with the era the gaming industry is going through. There are Nintendo fans, PS fans, Xbox fans and people who just enjoy the odd Call of Duty game. It's harder now to get people entised into paying £300 + for a console unless they follow the brand and have for years. The way in which we approach games has changed drastically in the last few years and the fact that games can be downloaded or streamed is far more beneficial to the industry, rather than releasing a game and it going through a 'recycle' phase such as trade in.

In terms of specs; in reality no one gives a damn. Its all about the games and the graphics (and real gamers play games for what they are, not because of the graphics). Nintendo has managed to sustain itself over the years not thanks to its graphics but its own library of classics. With the Wii U it was great to see that it had so many launch titles of which more than half were 3rd party owned. This proved the faith that these 3rd party developers have in Nintendo and it's Wii U. Sony'a new machine sounds great, and the specs are definitely to next gen standards. I'm more interested to see what the last contender (Microsoft) has to offer in the future. The fact is that the Wii U is seen as another platform in which big games will be released and not just exclusive to PS3 and Xbox 360 respectively. Then the real question will be: "Which version shall I get? The Wii U or the PS4?" Nintendo has essentially created a giant DS experience with the Wii U with its gamepad and its a good formula. Its going to be an interesting year ahead of us and the gaming industry. Let the Games Begin!



CerberusAzdin commented on UK Retailers Call For Wii U Price Cut And Fres...:


I agree. The 3 factors affecting Wii U sales are:

1. It's only been out for 2 months
2. Needs more software
3. Needs cheaper software

I think that Nintendo could market the console a lot better. There are a lot of people who still think its just the controller.

It's good to see that there is yet another bundle coming out soon too. The Monster Hunter bundle will be bought by people who have played the previous installments. Nintendo need to release a NSMB U bundle because this are the ones that sell themselves. The problem isn't buying the console; people are willing to pay more than £250 (in most cases in the past) IF there is decent or appealing software available. The launch titles were great, but why pay £60 for AC3 when I can get it for £35 +/- on Xbox or ps3?

I think things will pick up, especially since the news received from the Nintendo Direct yesterday.
