Chrono_Cross commented on Dylan Cuthbert of Q-Games - Nintendo and Wii U...:
I love it how everyone you disagree with are tagged as trolls.
Chrono_Cross commented on DICE Tested Its Frostbite Engine On Wii U, Was...:
Oh no, there goes the neighborhood.
Chrono_Cross commented on Feature: Animal Crossing: New Leaf Has Atrocio...:
Now this is what I call a news story!
Chrono_Cross commented on Activision Reveals Call Of Duty: Ghosts, Doesn...:
@Gameday brings up a good point. There's no reason to hate on this series. You complain about everyone "fighting" every time it's brought up, yet you turn around and consistently talk negatively (at every opportunity given). If you hate Call of Duty, stop talking about it.
I'd be surprised if Activision didn't release Ghosts on Wii U. Then again, I can see why.
Chrono_Cross commented on Satoru Iwata: Nintendo Has No Plans To Adopt C...:
I needed a good laugh today.
Chrono_Cross commented on Rumour: New Call of Duty Title To Be Revealed ...:
I want to be excited but I can't see the Call of Duty teams pulling it off.
Chrono_Cross commented on Rejoice, Mario Kart Wii U Is Coming This Year:
Not really. Mario Kart Wii and 7 were the only games with three years in between.
Oh, and I called this awhile ago, haha.
Chrono_Cross commented on Wii U Virtual Console Launch Lineup Is Revealed:
Second batch? Lol, that's a good one.
Chrono_Cross commented on Armature Reveals More Details For Batman: Arkh...:
This sounds fantastic. Yet another investment to be made, lol.
Chrono_Cross commented on Nintendo To Deliver New Homes To Animal Crossi...:
This is fantastic news.
Chrono_Cross commented on Cliff Bleszinski Likens The Wii To A "Virus":
@Peach64 Yet most people fail to comprehend that, lol.
Chrono_Cross commented on Nintendo to Pull the Plug on Several Online Wi...:
It's disappointing none of them have successors on Wii U. It's by no means a deal breaker, but having some sort of option would be nice.
Chrono_Cross commented on Animal Crossing: New Leaf Pricing Emerges On N...:
Looks like it'll be a tad easier to buy two copies now.
Chrono_Cross commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Should Make EA Co-oper...:
@SlapshotI agree Slap.
If Nintendo wants to create successful and healthy offerings, it needs to have consistent, reliable third party support.
Chrono_Cross commented on Talking Point: Warren Spector Asks, Where Are ...:
Developers are afraid to walk away from the norm due to the gaming audience. It's not a developer's fault it wants to develop yet another zombie game because it sells well.
Video games will never grow up because grown up entertainment isn't something any gamer wants to engage in (there are a few exceptions). It's a lost cause and very disappointing at that.
Chrono_Cross commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2013 - Spr...:
I want all of them. I know, surprising.
Chrono_Cross commented on No Battlefield 4 For Wii U Because DICE Wants ...:
Since when did Ubisoft profit from Assassin's Creed III? Do you have a link to sales of how many copies were sold? I'm doubting your claims.
It's not Ubisoft's fault it's contributing to a momentarily lost cause. I'm not declaring that third parties will never release games on Wii U, all I'm saying is that no smart publisher with big budget games are going to release them on Nintendo's Wii U in the next year.
Yeah, I'm sure that's why, but nothing lasts forever and if Nintendo truly had that mindset (it doesn't), you could expect it closing its foreign doors in the next few years, lol.
The people who want BF4 are the people who already own a PC or last generation console. Taking these comments as an example, most of these users didn't even want the game to begin with which, as predictable as it is, isn't shocking and further proves that DiCE and EA made the best decision possible.
Ubisoft doesn't have mystical powers to see into the future so it had no other option but to gamble its few games at launch. Otherwise, no other third party is contributing to the Wii U and won't until it sells well.
(Prepare for low budget risks on Wii U, lol.)
Are you telling me there are more than twenty thousand people on the Wii U version of Black Ops II every day? Wow, well I accept you.
Chrono_Cross commented on Gunman Clive eShop Sales Surpass Combined Tota...:
My point still stands.
Show a link for Mutant Mudds. I believe the reason you can't name another example is because there aren't any.
Glad I could jog your memory.
Yes, all twenty thousand of them. You still having trouble finding different lobbies? No need to lie about such a tiny community.
Absolutely worth the investment.
Look at how well that sold on Wii U.
Adding a map to the gamepad is a poor excuse to why it should take the risk.
I'm not too sure if Wii U outsold the Xbox 360 but even so, look at the slump Sony's PlayStation3 was in and now it's a success. Launches don't determine the outcome of consoles nor do past launches. Now, where Sony was sitting in 2007, it had a lot of third party support on the way and a wealth of first party titles on the way as well including an over abundance of new IPs.
There's no denying that. The question is, is that can Nintendo do the same? I'm not too optimistic about it due to its history of lacking in that aspect.
Like what they say, first time for everything.
Nintendo will have to resort to handhelds-only if third parties are not supporting its consoles. Nintendo will only last so long after its audiences figure its same old franchises are starting to burn out rather quickly and with its new IPs selling below the horizon at every corner, it's only a matter of time.
Either way, it's not selling well as of now and won't for some time. The launch of Wii U was only the launch and has no key benefits for Nintendo anymore. Actually, Nintendo had to decrease the goal of the sales target not too long ago to help its share holders.
That's not good. Plus, there's no reason to buy one until the Holiday season unlike its current last generation competition and with a lack on interest from third parties, nothing will change substantially for the next generation console. Looks like it'll be yes another Nintendo console where only Nintendo's games will be worth a look.
The Wii U didn't sell at the beginning whatsoever. As of now, there's no demand for it. Plus, there's barely any third party support aside from Ubisoft. Which isn't enough to justify a purchase.
What happened in the past happened in the past. The past has no impact to the future success of any console on the market. I'm not sure why any of you are debating this, but it's a tad redundant.
You can't blame DiCE for not supporting a console that refuses to sell.
Chrono_Cross commented on Star Fox Developer: I Wanted To Say "Screw Tha...:
Mascot, icon. Contra has been running for over twenty years and look how successful that is by today's standards.
Konami are gods.
There will always be a Nintendo. Though, one without a mascot.
I enjoy most of Miyamoto's games but he's not God, he's a video game director.
Chrono_Cross commented on Ubisoft Reveals Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag...:
Here's the plan Ubisoft: When we're done with Black Flag we're going to take a two year break from the Assassin's Creed franchise and focus on the fifth installment for that absent gap.
The fifth game will focus on World War II and boom, we're done. Forever.
Chrono_Cross commented on Phil Fish: I Love Nintendo In Ways It Probably...:
I don't think a documentary that revolves around Team Meat, Phil and the man who made Braid is the best source of discovering Fish's, or anyone else's, people skills or any other aspect of their personalities.
Especially considering how short the movie is, how limited Phil's part was and the fact there's no concrete evidence to validate your observation.
He's not directly talking to anyone. As far as we know, we know nothing of his people skills.
Yes Damo, posting a news article about an indy developer's opinion from his Twitter that is known to upset your entire community is definitely, without a doubt, news worthy.
Damien is a much bigger "douche" for running/allowing this story and that pic to begin with. Enjoy the mindless fanboy hate you're intentionally stirring up, I'm sure it's lining your pockets nicely.
It's funny how nobody but pixelman has realized what's going on here (and has been for a long time).
I know it's annoying and unnecessary for you to read Fish's opinions but you're blaming the wrong guy. Blame Damien and the NL staff for allowing this unnecessary "news" article(s) to be published.
It's unprofessional and, in other words, utterly immature.
Chrono_Cross commented on Fez Creator Believes Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate...:
When one reads an opinion they disagree upon, they should respond in a mature manner. There's no reason not to and it might prevent yourself from looking silly.
Maybe I'm reading too fast but you should point out where Phil said "nobody wants a DS" because all I read was "I wish this had 2nd screen that is smaller and a different aspect ration and touch but not 3D". Which Phil was implying no one has ever said.
Chrono_Cross commented on Feature: Nintendo Life's Staff Favourites - NES:
Great list, NL. I especially agree with the top three.
Ego or not, he has an opinion I agree with. Beyond that, you or anyone else ranting on about how it's "wrong" or "bullcrap" are just wasting time on this fantastic Sunday with a professional that will never read these comments.
Who are you to say he doesn't have room to talk? For all we know, you're the average joe that only plays games and nothing more.
He's talking about the 3DS' 3D feature. Fez is not the same kind of 3D.
I find it funny how almost everyone in the comments are either severely offended or upset by Fish's opinion. I guess he should have opened his rant with "IMHO".
Chrono_Cross commented on MercurySteam Still Interested In Developing A ...:
As much fun as I had with Contra 4 and Rebirth (not much), I honestly do not want to see another one for a very long time.
Chrono_Cross commented on Nintendo Removes Restriction On 18+ Content Fo...:
Glad to see Nintendo getting with the times.
Especially considering its console has parental controls to begin with.
Chrono_Cross commented on Video: Pokémon Snap Gritty Reboot Spoofs Jura...:
Creative approach, great use of limited resources, but wouldn't watch.
Chrono_Cross commented on Rumour: Capcom Developing New Strider Title Fo...:
Wake me up when it's actually announced.
Chrono_Cross commented on FEZ Creator Insists The Game Wouldn't Work On ...:
@Peach64 Not to mention the reception he's been receiving over the last couple years, lol.
I agree with your opinion, though. One of the best games out there.
Did he burn down your house and/or hurt your family? I'm pretty sure if Jon Tron did whatever Phil did, you'd accept that.
