Cyberbotv2 commented on Feature: A Day in The Future Life of a Nintend...:

This article eludes to the future for Nintendo in 2050. I'm confident at this point, they have no clue what they're doing, and their eventual plans will be slow to roll out, sort of like the VC fiasco with their current consoles. I don't see management changing anytime soon, and the hardcore that are left are bowing down to Nintendo's every word. I love Nintendo, but they have shown a staggering ineptitude this generation to not compete for the gamers dollars, with ill timed announcements, and grandiose plans that rarely if ever come to fruition.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Plans for DLC and Mi...:

A huge problem to me, is that this DLC, and Amiibo junk are essentially hiding Nintendo's biggest problem...no games! The 3DS appears to have a barren schedule coming up. And this is right after releasing the new 3DS. Splatoon being bundled with Amiibo looks desperate to me. But even when they do decide to pump out games ( which they could do with Wii U retail, Wii VC, all VC, indie, etc), it ends up either being a platformer or another genre they have killed to death. I love Nintendo, but they are on a prolonged lunch break that they may never come back from.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Reckons "It Would Be Co...:

Spencer is actually a pretty straight shooter. I read an interview with him recently, and he openly admitted to the early mistakes of the Xbox one. He has a clear vision of pushing the Xbox one as a multimedia gaming device that will interact with Windows acting as a Steam like device. They were able to secure Sling Box, and they have some interesting games coming in terms of 3rd party and exclusives. All I can say is that this guy is out there trying to push his vision and system. There's no way any Nintendo exec ever does stuff like this.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Turns to Classics, DLC...:

@Captain_Gonru: they left way too much unsaid. I'd be a lot happier if they provided release dates on VC, indie, and retail releases up to E3. If there was some demonstration of an organized week by week deluge of games, It would go over so much better. After April, we may never hear about the n64 VC again. The GBA and Wii VC have already dissipated. And make mention of a reward system. Saving this makes no sense.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Turns to Classics, DLC...:

@Captain_Gonru: Spot on. After absorbing the Direct over a day, I realized they literally presented nothing we didn't know. I actually wanted Mario 64, but I refuse to give these fools my money anymore. And it is a slap, a hard one at that not even mentioning the Club Nintendo replacement. Unless their E3 is monumental, which I guarantee it won't be, whatever their next console is, they'll be lucky to retain half of the Wii U audience.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 1st...:

@Yorumi : If Nintendo is not actively reaching out to the publishers of those older games, they are dumber than I suspected. And thinking about it further, I bet they're sitting back expecting companies to come to them. Perfect example was when WWE network launched. Every system was supported except anything Nintendo related. Nintendo could have reached out said, we have a lot of older fans from the N64 era, that enjoyed your games. Let's get this on the VC, we'll add online to it, and you can get 50 percent, and at the same time run a cross promotion discount on the Network. But instead nothing. These directs tend to satisfy the hardcore like myself temporarily, but the same mismanagement always crops up. Maybe I will stay away from any purchases (including Mario 64 which I wanted) for now until they show a membership/reward system, and much more of a dedicated and consistent release schedule.

@Yorumi : I do have to agree with the Amiibo part. I can't imagine having these toys lying around to unlock content. It feels as if they're pushing all their games toward this junk. The DLC is interesting because it looks as if they will keep supporting these games moving forward. Of note though, I have never bought any Nintendo DLC yet. My biggest issue is the VC again. They might put some stuff up now, but it could be barren again in a month. I want some Genesis, Atari, Saturn, Dreamcast, Game Gear, Commodore games to play on my gamepad. Are they holding this stuff back to implement with their new reward system?

@mrchills : the n64 has a rich catalog. Can they even release a lot of these games? I'm unaware of what could be holding back games like Turok ,Shadowman, and such. If it has to do with licensing, then we'll miss out on the best the system had. WWF No Mercy, Goldeneye, Jet Force Gemini, even NBA Courtside: (

@Shiryu : Oh, I think you may give in to Microsoft and/or Sony soon. Did you see the Halo ad blitz Microsoft ran this weekend during primetime? I don't see Nintendo doing that. And today, Sony announces a wicked custom Batman PS4 bundle for the summer. I don't see Nintendo branding their home console with anything as big as the Bat. The point is, its the same Nintendo yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

@Quorthon : I think I read somewhere last year that Nintendo renewed the Eternal Darkness trademark, but for what purpose, who knows. I just can't stomach anymore Mario, Link, etc. franchise anymore. Splatoon sounds fun, but seems multiplayer focused, with no voice chat which damages the interactivity greatly. I wanted a focus on other franchises. But so many like Eternal Darkness, Jet Force Gemini, the sports division have all vanished.

Reading some of the speculation here is worth it alone. My hype level is zero at this point. Last week was such a disaster from Nintendo, and so far 2015 has been sad. Call me when Eternal Darkness HD and it's sequel arrive.

@Ichiban : it's hard not to give into the temptation to toss the Wii U aside and just focus on PC, PS4, and the XBox one. I actually don't think Nintendo has anything of worth to announce for the rest of the year. They've let long dormant franchises rot. My favorite example is Eternal Darkness. Geez, what an awesome game. Its like they don't want to take chances. If they announce another Mario game at E3, I'm gonna be sick.

Interesting that everyone is speculating about an additional game to fill the void. It can't be a brand new game. Maybe a game they renewed a trademark on last year. And something in my opinion far more interesting. Eternal Darkness HD? Ah, it's good to dream.

@Yorumi: Oh yeah, the Wii was my last day one Nintendo purchase. I waited a year on the Wii U because I could see trouble early, especially with the looming PS4 and Xbox One. And I have little confidence I'll be purchasing any Nintendo console moving forward. I'll ride it out with the Wii U, since I put money into it already. Fool me once, fool me twice..goodbye.

@Yorumi: As a customer, I just feel Iwata and Nintendo has been lying for the last few years. I wonder what else they have under wraps? And Iwata needs to be quiet. The more he talks, the more he damages the Nintendo brand. Why would you mention a new Club Nintendo is arriving in the fall? Now, everyone's just waiting the rest of the year. What they need to do is focus on the Wii U, and 3DS, and show something for these systems. Get back to the games, because anything else they talk about ends up being a gimmick or straight up false.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@JaxonH : The incentive was club Nintendo. Iwata expects a release schedule around the fall for that. Right now PS Plus and Xbox Live offer free games as their incentive for buying the console essentially. Nintendo had the digital deluxe and Club Nintendo. Now they have nothing. So, as a Wii U owner, I have no reason to buy any games again until the fall. Are they going to reward me retroactively for hundreds of dollars of purchases through the late Spring and Summer? I highly doubt it.

@Quorthon : Nintendo admitting to the development of a new platform has essentially sealed the deal on the Wii U. As each day goes by, they lose more on the Wii U. What incentive does any honest Wii U owner have to purchase a game on a dying console? And to add to the problem, by ceasing any further reward system until the fall, they have set the console up for failure. WhAt are they doing?

Cyberbotv2 commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@CanisWolfred : I read that article and see the same line being traced in the sand here. How are they all into innovating with the NX, and yet done nothing with the Wii U controller. You can't innovate for innovation sake. You actually have to do something. And for anyone saying Microsoft and Sony don't innovate, look at their OS, look at how they've essentially made a set top box that is tthe Swiss army knife of consoles. Look at the Xbox controller, and realize that was the natural extension of the N64 controller, and so on. Its time for Iwata to roll out...

Cyberbotv2 commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand On DeNA, Smart Device...:

My last comment deleted. But, what I previously posted was that I don't really trust Nintendo anymore. They've been working on this DeNA relationship for 5 years, yet what have they done for Wii U? I feel as if they hoodwinked me into putting all this money into my Wii U. Loss of 3rd parties, loss of VC, zero advertising and a sparse release schedule makes me totally question what's going on. And I have no incentive to buy anything anymore Because of no rewards program. And that doesn't begin until the fall! That's ridiculous. And with the NX, I honestly don't care. I'll whip out my N64, and gamecube for the time being, and finish up my Steam backlog before I think about purchasing another Nintendo console.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Heading For a Period of ...:

Good editorial. But here's the problem now. I have no interest in buying any game right now. The new membership program may reward customers for purchases. But it's not going to reward me for now. And the other issue is that Nintendo wants to essentially be Apple. Not a bad idea, but probably too little too late.

@Prof-Whit : Absolutely. I believe in paying for good work. Why should the indie developers be selling at a low cost, if its a quality game? Why should the VC be offering games at bargain bin prices? I downloaded Axelay the other day. That game should be 20 dollars at the least. I've felt cell phone games, and services like PSN, and Xbox Live give out very cheap games or an associated service with free games, and this dilutes what the customer expects. Steam keeps it real. They will offer great discounts but have you sign a waiver that the game could vanish tomorrow. So you pay for what you get.
