Cyberbotv2 commented on Nintendo Download: 22nd January (North America):

I bought Citizens of Earth. Game looks awesome. I'll get Punch Out and SCAT later this weekend. I initially balked at these Wii games popping up on the eshop, but they're putting out good stuff! I would love to see some third party Wii games show up, namely Resident Evil, and WWE All Stars. Is that even possible?

I'm glad the article mentioned that the amiibo concept can be looked at as a glorified collector's toy. For me, it has yet to serve any significant purpose, that you couldn't get form regular DLC or a holographic card (which I feel would be collectable, especially to the nostalgic). I'm sure Nintendo has a master plan that connects the amiibo, the Wii U, 3DS, and QOL, but as of right now, they have a skeptical customer here.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Wii U Enjoyed Its Best Ever Month of US Sales ...:

It looks as if Nintendo may drop the price and remove Wii BC compatibility as evidenced by their introduction of Wii digital games. What has caught my attention is the amount of amiibo sold. The suckers that bought these things will come to find them poor long term investments. I'm sure many consumers are looking at that permanent Xbox one price drop to 350 U.S. dollars, and Sony's likely response. I know I am.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

Nintendo wants people to purchase these games again, with no gamepad support, and no step up with the visuals? Sure....This is sad man. Meanwhile, GameCube is still missing. Only the deluded Nintendo die hards will be purchasing, unless they don't own it. In trying to impress their current Wii U owners, they received my contempt.

@akaDv8R: C'mon dude, you can't actually believe what you posted. Quorthon is totally spot on with his posts. I stopped drinking the Nintendo Kool-Aid a few months ago, and saw what I was missing out on. The company is full of it, with tons of empty promises to the most loyal of console owners. That eventually negatively impacts perception and sales at some point. They could release a PS4 or Xbox one type console tomorrow and I'm confident nobody would care. They have managed to damage the brand to the point of no return.

How does a Wii U owner possibly have any confidence in the next console? If this is their last big year of releases, it's a bad sign for the current user base and anyone on the fence. I'm definitely picking up a PS4 at the end of the year because they have great 3rd party support. I miss my sports games. I miss Resident Evil. I miss Batman. Seriously, once Arkham Knight arrives, it's game over with Nintendo and me.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015:

@Quorthon : "Yes, Sony and MS, and companies like Square-Enix (especially Square-Enix) also feature their repeats and remakes, but they are not solely dependent on them as Nintendo is"
Yes, Nintendo does rely on heavily on their franchise characters. There are some differences. Like Hyrule Warriors. That reliance on these characters is actually what may be most detrimental. Splatoon was expected to be Mario based initially, and i can say without a doubt I would not be looking at the game at all if there were more Nintendo characters representing another genre. We already have Smash and Kart.
Otherwise, the games I look forward to most seem to be Devils Third, Affordable space adventures, and Splatoon. But the PS4 and Xbox One are going to have some very good games as well. I'm not sure if my money will be with Nintendo this year.

@Quorthon : I was about to argue with you about the benefits of ps plus, but you made some very valid points. I may be looking at this situation with Nintendo glasses. It looks as if they have the money to have a service like Xbox live, and PS plus. I think you just sold me on getting a PS4 or Xbox One. It sounds as if they really cater to the gamer. Hmmmm....

Cyberbotv2 commented on Satoru Iwata Highlights Frustration at Missed ...:

Hahaha, some of these comments are ridiculous. Right now, Nintendo just got back into the positive with their finances. They are just looking to build from here. A PS plus like subscription does not work for a smaller company like Nintendo. Sony and Microsoft can afford to hand out games for free because they are mega corporations. Just enjoy the Wii U folks.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Super Smash Bros. Grabs Third Place in NPD Cha...:

What person would pay full price for an Assassins Creed game on a next gen console? Little secret, but I buy it for 5 bucks on steam in 6 months. Super Smash in 6 months. Same price. Makes the purchase worth it. Not so with other 3rd party games. Anyways, good news for Nintendo. Keep bringing the games!!

Cyberbotv2 commented on Talking Point: What's Next For amiibo?:

The trading card game is the way to go. A glossy Pikachu card with stats on the back. Do that for any character, and I am set. I had posted a while ago this would work great for 3rd parties. A batman game where scanning a joker card opens up a new level, etc. Cards are the way to go.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Nintendo Download: 11th December (North America):

Wow, that's a bad week. Good thing I picked up the Evil Within on Steam a few weeks ago. I've been in need of horror games on my Wii U and had to temporarily migrate away. I hope they work out something with Capcom for Resident Evil. Ah well.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

I'm not confident in a Nintendo phone. I don't know how they would incorporate controls without creating some form of bulk. The modern consumer is a straight up tool. You don't think they would probably buy candy crush vs the original Mario bros? They do not want to be challenged. They want something accessible and cheap. Perfect example was when I went and watched Interstellar recently. The movie ended, and I heard "Where are the aliens"....The modern American consumer is the dumbest in the world. Thinking outside of the box is out of the question for these sheep. And that's what certain film, media, and most importantly Nintendo do best.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Nintendo Reveals New Wii U Footage and Details...:

@rjejr : The most important part is that they are not willing to abandon the console, which is huge for owners and prospective buyers. They could easily fill out the next couple of years with a HD gamecube game monthly, they could unify accounts, they could unlock Dreamcast, Genesis, etc VC, and they could re-brand the Wii U, like the 3DS. Maybe Super Wii U. It was good to see Nntendo very active at a a time and place where they should be.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Nintendo Reveals New Wii U Footage and Details...:

This is good news. It proves that they are not abandoning the console as of 2015, or early 2016. I'm very skeptical about Nintendo revealing another console in general. I think gamers in general are targeting Batman Arkham Knight with their next new console purchase. And it's just going to be difficult for Zelda to get out there with that type of game out there dominating the majority of gamers mind. Regardless, I hope Zelda truly is what was rumored to be a few years ago, which was essentially the biggest game ever.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

@WaveWarlock: Gaming isn't much fun anymore because of the concentration on sales, graphic comparison, yearly updates and so on. And who's playing all these games? Don't kids have school, and adults work? Haha, I guess not anymore. They're probably blogging right now about the next fiscal quarter and how Nintendo should advertise... Otherwise, the Wii U has provided me with a fun factor I haven't had since the cube. A gaming bust is on its way for all home consoles. Virtual Reality is not it. Higher specs are not it. DLC is not it. I'm not sure where it's going, but I'm only confident in Nintendo attempting some sort of innovation.

@Ryno : I agree with your A. Some of the comments here are a reflection of gamers that game too much. Most of my time is devoted to work and responsibilities. So a few hours a week is good enough. And I feel like there are too many games. The focus on sales, and user bases has destroyed the fun of gaming, and sites like Nintendo Life seem to add to the problem. How depressing.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Talking Point: The amiibo Range Grows, Yet Key...:

I thought about this more last night. Amiibo could be a great way to attract 3rd parties. Give me a Wilt Chamberlain glossy trading card with an NFC chip or a straight up statue, and I could insert him into NBA 2K. Or give me Luigi to use in Resident Evil. This could even have applications in VC games. Insertion of the Nintendo line up into all types of games. A limited edition Batman figurine for Castlevania, and on and on. This has lots of possibilities. I wonder how well Nintendo can implement this.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Nintendo Outlines Confusing amiibo Save Data L...:

I'm more fascinated by the possibility of Amiibo cards. I could have a thousand card deck and keep scanning it with different games. I think these figures are short term, and more for the collector. Reading the posts above, it seems the collector/hoarder has gone off the deep end.

I only own a Wii U, so I was just looking for games there. Captain Toad, and Xenoblade looked great. The Wii U VC was quiet other than for duck hunt which was one of the first games I ever played. The direct did not feel surprising. It was good to see Iwata looking healthy. The eshop stuff was interesting. We'll see.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 5th...:

The direct was good. I don't own a 3DS, so the majora mask game didn't interest me. And it also confirmed to me that they will never bring N64 games to the WiiU VC. The lack of DS games on the Wii U is another missing segment. On the good side, Captain Toad looked charming. Splatoon looked great. Xenoblade looked mind blowing. And lastly, the eshop looks stacked for indie games. My complaints are minor in the end, because I have way too much to play.

Cyberbotv2 commented on New Study Finds No Connection Between Video Ga...:

I think it's very difficult to correlate videogame violence with real world violence. However, I'm sure it has a powerful effect in shaping thoughts and actions. So, the kid playing GTA or COD is not being affected at all. No way. It promotes violence, and some of these folks have difficulty distinguishing real world from the digital world. They should do a study on the amount of parents buying these games for their under 18 kid, and saying its ok.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Feature: What We Want to See in the November N...:

I just want some significant VC stuff. I'd like to play some Genesis and N64 games on my gamepad. I'd love to hear about a re-release of Eternal Darkness in eshop or retail format. Just something. Otherwise, I don't expect much from this Direct due to the fact that Amiibo, SSB, and Mario Kart DLC will be the focus. Their overly extra focus on SSB has actually caused me to become de-hyped.

Cyberbotv2 commented on New Nintendo Direct Airing 5th November:

I already know what's coming for the Wii U retail side the rest of the year. I don't know what's coming for the VC though. I'd like to hear about DS/N64 games. That's a promise Nintendo dropped the ball on. And where are the genesis, Sega Saturn, etc. That would be such a great thing to play these games on a gamepad. Again, I don't need a rehash of what's coming this year, and I don't want to hear about the Amiibo gimmick.

I don't know where these guys popped up from, but I'll be picking up these new eshop releases this weekend. The games just seem such a natural fit for the gamepad. They'll be one of the developers I'll be watching moving forward. And much love for supporting the Wii U.

I'm sure Nintendo has been doing weird stuff like this for years, except we usually don't hear about it. With the internet and sites like this, something like this becomes news. It's not. Its just an idea that will be swept under the rug again in a few years.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

Looking at the USA, I've seen cool ads for Alien Isolation for PS4 and Xbox one....and PC. Point is, I was very tempted to buy a PS4 this summer, but saw that many of the games were coming on PC. And the same goes for Xbox One. Right now, if a gamer owns a PC and Wii U, they are covered. There's enough games to last you a lifetime. I feel bad for folks upgrading their PS3 and Xbox 360 to their respective counterparts. You have a smaller library, and have to pay for online. Uh, no.
