Cyberbotv2 commented on Dragon Quest XI Is Coming To The Nintendo 3DS ...:

These Dragon Quest games take a long time to come out. NX or the Ultimate Super Nintendo Entertainment system might come in 2017 after all. The other thing I noticed though is that the NX could be as potent as PS4 or weak as the 3DS. Guaranteed hybrid. I'm a corporate magician!

Cyberbotv2 commented on Editorial: Super Smash Bros. Should be Integra...:

Well the new system needs a name. Something ridiculous, like the Ultimate Nintendo Entertainment system. For me, they could release Smash, Kart, whatever at launch, I'd be very hesitant to purchase. The way they killed the N64, the cube, the Wii, and now Wii U, why would any of those previous customers trust them? They keep losing customers each generation, with the Wii being an exception. They need to earn trust at this point. I'm sorry, but I can only stomach so many platformers. Only so much Nintendo mascot themed games. Anyone saying they don't need EA, Ubisoft, or any of these 3rd parties is smoking something. No home console will survive without the yearly Madden, or NBA 2K, and even Assassins Creed at this point. And they need variety. What happened to Eternal Darkness? What happened to their rich back catalogue? They can't talk to Disney to give us Aladdin from back in the day? They can't talk to WWE and work out an online No Mercy? They can't come to an agreement with Microsoft about Goldeneye 64? Again, they have a ton of work to do.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

Nintendo shoulders the majority of the blame here. They have created a console fan base that cares little for 3rd parties. How many people would have bought something like Dark Souls or NBA 2K on the Wii U. Probably too few, since no one would realize these games would be coming out on the system. I just recently bought an Xbox One, and I'm enjoying Tomb Raider and NBA 2K15 as we speak. I have Halo 1-4 bundled with the system and yet to play plus Rare Replay ( 30 games!) reserved. I may not need another console from Nintendo for a very very long time.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Industry Analysts Speculate On Nintendo's Futu...:

Takeda is my lead choice due to his deep involvement in the company's hardware. Miyamoto is an odd choice. He would actually be the best of both worlds in a way. As CEO, he could watch over every game and put his two cents in all the time. But, I know jack about corporate stuff, and the inner workings of a corporation. My hope is Nintendo is able to recapture the magic they had.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Playtonic Happy to Move Away From "Box-Ticking...:

@TheRealThanos : I just purchased an xbox one a few weeks ago. I got the 1TB version with Halo 1-4 bundled with it and a free year of Gold. Some of the bundles are great value. And the upcoming game list looks in my opinion the best of the year. Rare Replay has 30 legit games coming. As a Nintendo fan that definitely caught my eye and caused me to move towards a purchase. I don't know what you're into, but they have a Madden bundle arriving with a free year of EA Access mid August, and a Gears of War bundle at the end of August. Microsoft is providing the best value with a great amount of games moving into next year. I cannot say that about Nintendo and even Sony right now or in 2016.

NintendoLife and its community has been so respectful of Iwata the past 24hours. Very well done to all the users, and authors. Iwata would be overwhelmed with the love we've shown.

@sonicmeerkat : I wouldn't worry about that at all. Nintendo was built with Hiroshi Yamauchi's family and their ideas, morals, and justifying value to the customer. That train of thought pervades all of nintendo from top to bottom. Just read any random interviews with Miyamoto, or the numerous developers. I'll miss Iwata deeply, and I'm sure his fingerprints will be on whatever's coming next, because of his involvement with all concercing NX, and QOL.

Wonderful article. Iwata was vital to gaming as a whole. I cannot even wonder what comes for them next considering I had really begun backing away from Nintendo since E3. Now, I'm going to hold onto my Wii U, and just wait and watch. I hope whatever it is with QOL, NX, and DeNA that Iwata set up leaves a legacy that will only be added upon in the future. Rest well Iwata.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Poll: What Do You Want From Nintendo's NX Plat...:

They already lost me as a future customer. I haven't purchased anything new on my Wii U since January, I think. Otherwise, with the NX it would be nice to see certain things. A unified account system. Virtual console games from Atari 2600 and the Commodore to the Dreamcast and gamecube. And not first party garbage, but actual 3rd party stuff. Find a way to pay up for the licenses for games like Turok or Superman vs Doomsday. I mean, they've already sucked the fans money this generation. A huge de emphasis on Mario and the like. I want to see newer and dormant franchises. Eternal Darkness? A controller similar to the Xbox one elite controller to really with games from different gens. It would be nice to see 3rd parties, but they're really never coming back unless Nintendo is willing to pay out of their pocket. All of these things would me make me stop and consider the system. But due to the inconsistency and incompetence throughout Nintendo I would realize they would drop the ball at some point after I purchased. As in abandoning the system. As in trickling releases. As in the lack of diversity ( no sports, too many platformers). No, they could provide all the good stuff I mentioned, and there would be a small chance of purchase. They have really burned the console consumer, and that's why they're likely not to come back.

@FlaygletheBagel : You're so right about Microsoft. With Phil Spencer, the guy seems really open....and honest, which is refreshing. Unlike Nintendo who I feel rarely say anything truthful anymore. I'm Microsoft though, since last holiday they have been beefing up the console. I think the Xbox One may be coming my way sooner rather than later.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Video: Capcom Shares Footage of Resident Evil ...:

@FragRed : I totally place the blame on Nintendo not securing this. My recommendation would be to move onto an actual next gen machine or PC. These games will likely never come Nintendo's way. They could have really worked with Capcom, have an N64 demo with the new spruced up HD version, and it would have been great fan service, and a nod to better times.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Strategy Needs to be Glo...:

"the big N is well known for its quirkiness, creativity and prioritisation of fun and the gaming 'experience' above all else, and those are key differentiators from the tech-driven 'mature' focus that broadly typifies its immediate rivals"

I use to think that about Nintendo, but I can't say they have been overly creative recently, especially with the Wii U. They have no idea what to do with the gamepad. There is way too much dedication to platformers. They do not carry a diverse line-up. And they have gone the DLC route in a far more disgusting route than expected with Amiibo, and even the staggered release of levels for Splatoon. And since I'm mentioning Splatoon, I keep reading people on this site praising this game over and over. You paid 60 or more dollars for an extended season pass. Uh, no.
And the last fun game I played was not even on a Nintendo system. It was Tomb Raider on my PC. The exploration, the story, the effort that was put into the game was extensive. That was fun.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Mario Tennis is Smashing Its Way to the Wii U ...:

Didn't Iwata say they don't have resources to release VC games? Who wants this? Nintendo needs to dig into their pockets, pay up for some licenses, and bring us Turok, Goldeneye, No Mercy, etc. They can only rely on first party for so long.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Talking Point: Raw Power Isn't Vital to Ninten...:

@TheAdrock : I like the idea of upgradeable parts. I just don't feel it's sustainable to have to upgrade your system of choice every 5 to 7 years and usually lose backwards compatibility or the previous gen games. I don't know what Nintendo has planned, but a unified account system with games being released from every gen from the Commodore to the upcoming NX including 1st and 3rd party titles would be huge.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Won't Be As Powerful As Pl...:

Unless it has upgradeable parts like some of the upcoming Steam Machines, this will not interest me. That's why I have yet to jump on the PS4 and Xbox bandwagon. I don't want to get caught in the cycle of upgrading a whole console and losing the previous generation of games. Now if Nintendo suddenly put all their games into an account based system and released games on a consistent schedule, that would be different. Not just new first party games, but more 2nd and 3rd party offerings, and a utilization of their back catalog. And again, a back catalog of 3rd party games is essential. Bring me Turok, bring me Superman vs Doomsday, bring me WWf No Mercy. The likelihood of any of this happening is minimal. And so I might just keep PC gaming instead.

@Kirk : In regards to your first post, you're 100% right. Anyone that believes Nintendo has master plans needs to realise these guys are clueless. They honestly thought MK8 and SSB would propel the Wii U. They rely too much on established properties and gimmicks. At this point the NX could arrive with BC, a unified account system, a virtual console filled with games, at 100 dollars...and I still wouldn't care. As a loyal Wii U owner, I expected more but was foolish for expecting so.

@IceClimbers : I hope not. Devil's Third caught my attention last week with the developer video. Back on topic, Xenoblade looks good, but the impression I got from Japanese reviews was not the best. Hopefully, they're adding more for the EU and NA releases. I think Yoshi may end up being the best game on the list.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Retail Games of 201...:

No solid date for Devil's Third in NA is ridiculous. Nintendo needs to release a Wii U infographic highlighting every indie eshop and retail release coming the rest of the year. I'm guessing they probably have no clue anyway. Just an embarrassment at this point.

@ottospooky : I don't know if the partnership went sour, but the creator did show off video of the game last week, and he looks nuts! I'm guessing he told Nintendo he'll do a Direct himself with no Iwata or any Nintendo employees involved. Or he beat down Iwata before telling him this.

@arnoldlayne83 : I watched those Microsoft and Sony conferences and found myself very impressed. What I found hilarious was Microsoft offered up the Rare 30 game package for 30 dollars clearly catering to the Nintendo audience that moved on. And all the games shown looked so good. From Doom, Fallout, the Last Guardian, Tomb Raider, Dreams, NBA Live, and so much more, the variety and heftiness of these lineups are great. I think I may get a new console and I may never look back to Nintendo.

@ericwithcheese2 : With Devil's Third and Fatal Frame, Nintendo not acknowledging them shows they have no clue what they're doing. Combined with the lackluster Digital event, it demonstrates ignorance and disorganization. No wonder former Nintendo fans on other consoles hate Nintendo today. This article demonstrates that turning your head the other way whenever Nintendo does something foolish cannot be the norm. Every loyal Nintendo fan deserves to blast them. They have no respect for their customers anymore.

@Yorumi : Agreed. I love Nintendo but there is no way the NX will revive them. They had 10 million console owners that remained loyal through so many hopes and promises with the Wii U. And they turned their back on us yesterday. You can't treat your fans like this.

@rjejr : if they have no goodwill with the hardcore Nintendo fans at this point, they are in deep trouble. People can only invest so much time and money into nostalgia and Nintendo, but yesterday was such a kick to the loyal console owner. That's bad business. And considering Microsoft and Sony sold me on their consoles, as well as a lot of Wii U owners, there is no catching up at this point. This eerily reminds me of Sega and the downward spiral to the Dreamcast.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

That was brutal. It seems all attention has been diverted to the NX, but in the process this has sunk the Wi U for good. I assume they will attempt to tread water until Holiday 2016, but that's not a good idea. Not with a beefed up PS4 and Xbox One taking over for good. I was hoping for VC, an explanation of the Club Nintendo replacement, and a release schedule filled with retail releases and a heavy dose of VC and indie. Instead, there one time to catch the common customer was totally wasted. I haven't bought a Wii U game since the start of the year, and I don't feel like putting money into something Nintendo deems dead at this point. And I'm strongly against doing that with the NX, because I don't want to be fooled like this again. I'm extremely disappointed and sad.

@Project_Dolphin : I see what you're saying. My interest level was low for Sony's stuff because it was majority 3rd party and I could get all that on PC anyway. Microsoft's conference was much more entertaining. That elite controller and push of exclusives was well done. Plus I enjoyed the Man of Steel intro music :)
