DESS-M-8 commented on Nintendo Isn't Talking About NX Because It Doe...:

@liveswired this clearly states they have something huge in the pipeline that is a potential market changer and a genuine risk.

He states it it a model "0", this would lead me to believe that it's not a successor to either 3DS or Wii U.

Further to this he alludes that the NX would ultimately supercede both formats.

The NX is more than likely a home console format with equal or greater power than PS4 and has full mobile gaming integrated; a home console/mobile gaming hybrid.

This has been rumoured and suspected by many, including myself, for some time. To be honest, this is exactly what the markwt needs. And it will be HUGE if they follow through with it. Wii U was a prototype of that idea, PS4 with Vita tried to copy it INSTANTLY, NX has the opportunity to take that idea and knock it out of the park, should Nintendo listen, learn and act on their mistakes with Wii U. Shigeru Miyamoto sounded like this was exactly where hos head was in a recent interview.

I am very excited for E3 2016 and I guarantee NX will be a 2016 holiday release.



DESS-M-8 commented on Talking Point: E3 Highlighted Nintendo's Devel...:

So you agree about zelda, you have non-descript what retro are working on, especially as they have two teams. EAD are not working on star Fox, platinum are developing star Fox.
That still leaves 9 other nintendo software divisions unaddressed.
If you think nintendo will be announcing and showing off new hardware in less that 12 months, and nobody at nintendo is working on it, what exactly is it you think they will be showing???? Think somebody is kidding themselves or deluded.
Shigeru Miyamoto has stated they are working on NX. They have a schedule in place to keep content flowing on wii u for 18-24 months, the NX will begin it's build and rollout in less than 12 months.
There will be third parties right now with development kits for it, more than likely capcom.

Last time I checked suspicion was very similar to speculation, which I stated in my previous posts, so I'm not sure what you're accessing me of. The suspicion/speculation of what NX games they are currently working on, because they are working on them.



DESS-M-8 commented on Talking Point: E3 Highlighted Nintendo's Devel...:

@IceClimbers you have no idea what they are working on, same goes for EAD 1 and 3, along with divisions 2, 4 and 5. That's my point entirely. It has been AGES since anything has come from them and nobody knows what they're working on. The 3 franchises I stated are the games the referenced divisions are responsible for, therefore an educated guess is the foundation of my suspicion. It would also be supported by the "water testing" nintendo has conducted with metroid and FZERO lately to confirm or deny apparent market demand for these games.
They are developing NX right now,
they are developing NX software right now.
The lead nintendo divisions are definitely working on NX, lead by miyamoto.
Their market testing lately hints at these games.

Again, observation based suspicion, I don't know what they are developing and neither do you. But I guarantee I'm closer than you.



DESS-M-8 commented on Parent Trap: Woolly Yoshi amiibo Finally Turn ...:

@KeeperBvK what? Or course I wasn't being serious, neither was the other person. I was acknowledging his exaggeration highlighting the rarity of the yoshi amiibo.

But if you think they are common, you are sadly mistaken. There is nothing common about amiibo whatsoever.



DESS-M-8 commented on Talking Point: E3 Highlighted Nintendo's Devel...:

@NintyMan I think you'd be surprised at what they could have developed so far. Nintendos main studios have been quiet for a long time with nothing on the radar upcoming for wii u.
I suspect:

Retro Studios - meteoid NX
They have been very quiet since setting on new staff whilst winding up donkey kong.

EAD division 3 - Zelda NX
Zelda Wii U has been in development a LONG time and then mysteriously put back beyond the announced date when they will showcasing NX.

EAD division 1 - F-ZERO NX
After dabbling heavily with F-zero in mariokart 8, EAD 1 has announced nothing since mariokart 8.

Shigeru Miyamoto - realist/leader/dream maker
This man is nintendo, and the only person who has spoken a true perspective on the position of the wii u. In addition to this, he has been very quiet on what he is actually working on, and his sub-divisions. He has developed concepts for star Fox, the game is being developed by platinum, mario maker is finished. What has the bulk of his time been spent on? Especially as he is very openly looking to NX.

The wii u will have served a very hard 4 year life span since 2012 which is amazing considering its commercial battering outside of Japan. I think nintendo will have learnt a lot from wii u.

What's most amazing is how much power does matter. Not in terms of games bit in terms of market appeal. I have a wii u and a ps4. Wii u is my favourite console ever and has a much stronger library, the ps4 is rubbish and has almost nothing worth playing. Which has sold the most units?????

The general market don't play games anymore, they buy tech and show off. They then buy whatever EA/Activision and flashy loud adverts tell them to buy. There are some quality games on ps4 that have sold nothing, but yet the same regurgitated rubbish sells millions. Quite sad really.

NX is nintendos chance at a reset switch and make the sort of noise they're capable of. They just need to tread carefully and not be afraid to let wii u die gracefully, instead of flogging a dead horse like they did with the Wii in its last 24 months.



DESS-M-8 commented on Exclusive: We Almost Got A Wii U F-Zero Create...:

I would take an FZERO game made by a baby right now its getting that damn ridiculous that they STILL haven't released a new one.

The wii u REALLY could have uses this at launch too. I know 3 people who own a wii u now if just that game was released.



DESS-M-8 commented on Rare Replay on Xbox One Will Include 30 Games,...:

@HollywoodHogan they are MORE LIKELY to develop something on NX rather than Wii U. Why would any third party developer invest in wii u when nintendo themselves have already shifted focus to their next hardware?

By your logic, battlefield 4 and madden 25 should not have been available on launch day for ps4! What the hell were EA thinking of when they developed several games for PS4 before the first console had even been sold!!!!?
That's just insane!
Who would do such a thing!!!???
Developing for an as yet unreleased but in development new console!?
Nobody has ever done that!?
All these software companies should really follow your model.
They are all insane and have no idea what they've been doing forth last 30 years, probably before you were born.
But still, they should listen to you.
You're totally and utterly wrong like usual???? :-o



DESS-M-8 commented on The Current State Of Virtual Reality Just Isn'...:

@SomeBitTripFan it's not an insult, it is a factual observation. He didn't say it's crap, or it doesn't work.

VR is impressive tech, but it isn't fun. It has way more potential with industrial applications than it has to the media. If they manufactured the units at a higher price for use with AutoDesk design products and the such like, I could see its worth. Playing as a goalie in my front room? It really seems pathetic and I wouldn't even consider it. If I ever saw anyone, sat alone in their front room with a helmet on talking to the TV I think I'd give them a hug and take them out for a walk.
It just takes away every single reason that video games were devised for in the first place.



DESS-M-8 commented on The Current State Of Virtual Reality Just Isn'...:

VR is dead before it has even started.

The concept isn't anything new, it's been in existence for over 20 years.

People don't care. As soon as you have to wear something on your head or face to use it, it's a none starter.

Home 3D is standard but very rarely used, it is only market standard as it's addition had barely any cost today and it wouldn't make sense to remove a cheap feature that may remove their product from the range offered to the minority who want 3D.

VR will not ever work in the mass market until they develop a display medium that enables all local viewers to participate in the same environment, from any position in that environment and using only the naked eye.

The 3DS was a phenomenal leap in 3D display and made it possible for use in a casual and mobile environment. Transferring that to a TV and possible from varying viewing angles at once would be a leap again.

Once you have that, then you can look at AR projection.

VR? No. Not now, not ever. It's the trekkies pipe dream that is just too many generations away to even bother any attempt at a mass market launch. This will be move and kinect all over again.

Nintendo are right to leave it alone, they've enough on their plate anyway to design and manufacture a viable home console after the utter screw up they managed with the wii u. The wii u hasn't failed, nintendo has failed the wii u.



DESS-M-8 commented on Rare Replay on Xbox One Will Include 30 Games,...:

@HollywoodHogan wow. Just wow. I can't even begin to be bothered to spend the hours it would take to point out how wrong you are. You've completely missed the point of everything. So for your own sake shhhhhhhhhh.

Better to remain quiet and thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.



DESS-M-8 commented on Rare Replay on Xbox One Will Include 30 Games,...:

@HollywoodHogan equally so, $5 per game for the like of battletoads, killer instinct, Banjo kazooie, Conkers Bad Fur Day, blastcorpsis DORT cheap and would sell the same volume.
30 x $5???? :-o $150? Good call!!
And you've just made $120 per customer more than your first attempt at business. Plus you give choice to the consumer. Or virtually give it away for $30.
Waste, especially nothing of any value will come out from Rare ever again.



DESS-M-8 commented on Rare Replay on Xbox One Will Include 30 Games,...:

@HollywoodHogan can't even begin to stop laughing at how sad you are for traulling hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Taken out of context. The point was that wii u was not worth anyone's investment from a third party especially when there's implications of a new console. It is more likely they will be looking to NX than hoe the could feasibly turn a profit on a failed console.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha still laughing at you hahahahahahahaha



DESS-M-8 commented on Rare Replay on Xbox One Will Include 30 Games,...:

@HollywoodHogan Hollywoodhogan, I see your messages on here a lot. It seems you go waaaaay out of your way to make ridiculous comments based on nothing. For your consistency, I applaud you.

The list of games on the Rare bundle consistently retail for over $300 total to acquire them all. Charging $30 is silly on two levels:
1-it cheapens the games and devalues them to a consumer.
2-they would have made way more money by charging double and that still would have been cheap.
You're a business, you make money, you like money; why would you choose not to make money? Unless you're an utter dummy?



DESS-M-8 commented on Next Metroid Prime Home Console Title "Would L...:

@aaronsullivan totally agree

Their announced output carries the wii u for 12 months, giving us 4 years which is actually amazing for a console with zero third party support.

Nintendo have made it clear that NX is coming at end of 2016.

There are 5 divisions within EAD only 1 of them has announced what they are working on.
Retro Studios are apparently working on nothing.
2 divisions at SPD who are working on "nothing"
And not even a peep from IRD (hardware and peripherals)
The actual big guns at nintendo are far too busy at HQ to make a noise at E3 this year.

Their business strategy was to put an 18 month software stream together supported with third party development. The first party divisions clearly have a way bigger task.......


12 months from now. Make sure you quote me



DESS-M-8 commented on Next Metroid Prime Home Console Title "Would L...:

I personally thought the whole of e3 has been appalling. No new Major announcement from anyone. VR is pointless and redundant within the forum of home entertainment just as much as 3D is. Lauded only by tech geeks and one-up braggers just to have something new and then never use it more than once. If people won't wear glasses to enjoy 3d, why would they Don goggles for another new tech? Never happen.
Uncharted 4 looked good, but looked exactly the same game as uncharted 3, 2 and 1. Not a bad thing, it's just nothing new at all AND it was announced a year ago. People shouldnt be going crazy for it now, they should be saying "why the hell isn't it on shop shelves right now!?"
Everything else was a sequel of a sequel of a sequel.
The only true GREAT things to happen was the announcement of and almost instant funding of Shenmue III.
And for the more astute, who can read between the lines, Nintendo's apparent lacking at E3 actually did nothing but affirm the entire company is currently working on NX Hardware and first party titles. That bad boy will in stores before Christmas 2016.
I guarantee it.



DESS-M-8 commented on Don't Worry, The Legend of Zelda is Still Comi...:

I'd it still comes to wii u I guarantee you we'll have a twilight princess scenario and see it developed on NX also. It makes perfect business sense tonnage a game this anticipated available on a console you are trying tonnage a strong launch for and also explains the huge delay



DESS-M-8 commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

This digital event is blatantly starting what wiinu gamers can expect between now and June next year. Any MAJOR franchise in development is being developed for NX now and will be showcased at E3 2016 for a 2016 holiday release. I'm indirectly pleased with this E3 just for this pure fact



DESS-M-8 commented on Rare Replay on Xbox One Will Include 30 Games,...:

Wow. Just wow. The only decent facet of Microsoft is that they own some great IP'S from Rare and have a hook in a piece of gaming history. Then they go and ram the ENTIRE history of the the now dead Rareware on one release for only $30!? How much does that cheapen what name was left? That's like punching a naked corpse in the nuts in public ten years after you hung the victim.



DESS-M-8 commented on Sega Is Focusing On 3DS For Sonic Boom Because...:

Sonic boom sucked orbs orbs, big time. Because of sega forcing it through a dead line, bowing to opinion of a focus group selected most probably from an asylum, and handing full reign to a developer with no idea or any balls about it. Where is sonic team today? Would they have not been better tasked with responsibility??
Wii u version was bad beyond repair and it I'd "skipping" a sequel as a sequel would require building from the ground up (time and money) compared to 3ds where they can reuse the existing game as a base (less investment in resources) THAT is the deciding factor behind this, nothing else. If sonic boom had been "OK" it would have seen a sequel, but it wasn't, it was a modern day trademark sega abomination.



DESS-M-8 commented on Mighty No. 9 Signature Edition Will Not Be Ava...:

I was only ever going to buy the Wii U eShop version anyway. I missed out on backing this game :-( gutted. I read about it after the backing closing date had passed. Have since back Yooka Laylee and Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night though.



DESS-M-8 commented on Nintendo Download: 4th June (Europe):

Utter garbage.
I've cracked the sega saturn back out just together some real retro quality nostalgia raging. Still praying they bring to virtual console at some point



DESS-M-8 commented on Exclusive: Slightly Mad Studio Head Ian Bell S...:

@Remisio when we're 3rd parties "turning" to wii u? All this next gen is rubbish. Nintendo have taken a total miss step with Wii U. Xbox, I wouldn't have one given and I have a ps4 and NO games cause there's none worth the money. I have a ps3 which makes more than 90% of the Ps4 library redundant. I have LOADS of games for wii u and I personally rate it as best console ever. But Nintendo aren't supporting it properly and it's library is really under delivering on its potential.
N64 gamecube and assorted (saturn dreamcast) other consoles should have been on VC from day one. Metroid, FZERO and zelda should have released in year one. There has been no real big bang on wii u at any point.

NX has the potential to make some real noise as the first true next gen console and delivering on software, hardware and infrastructure. All other current next gen arenonly delivering on 1 out of those 3



DESS-M-8 commented on Exclusive: Slightly Mad Studio Head Ian Bell S...:

I hope they hold it off for NX and NX is announced for November 2016.
Wii u is done and dusted apart from first party which is more than enough to sustain information another 18 months. Investing into anything huge on wii u now is pointless. Investors will just not see a worthwhile return as the userbase is too small. Edging things on 12 months and launching NX with an unbeatable launch line up is the best business strategy and will provide the best possible product to the consumer



DESS-M-8 commented on Feature: Go Fast - An Ode To The Glorious Chao...:

@Takerkaneanite6 totally agree. I think there's a chance we get a HD remaster of GX with F-zero NX being announced as a launch title. It would serve better to launching a next gen nintendo, the sheer spectacle of F-zero running on ps4 beating hardware would be phenomenal and certain to ring cash registers globally.



DESS-M-8 commented on Work in Progress Video Fires Up Shigeru Miyamo...:

What exactly is this reporting? What is it even hinting or rumouring at? Even a single piece of rumour information would have helped?
Is this a finished article?
Think you've just wasted your time, my time and all your other reader's time here. Not good.



DESS-M-8 commented on Sit Tight, Nintendo Will Announce Its E3 2015 ...:

If NX is what next year E3 is all about then this E3 needs to carry mega news as it will be wii u's last showcase.
This needs to be:
Eternal darkness
New mario
Star Fox fully playable.
If none of these are shown or mentioned THESE need to be launch titles showcased NX next year.



DESS-M-8 commented on Former Castlevania Producer Koji Igarashi's Ki...:

I will not back this game then. Stupid move.
I can all but guarantee that yooka laylee and might no 9 was massively backed by nintendo gamers just as they would have with this. Castlevania is a thoroughbred nintendo based franchise and their gamers would have donated in their thousands to bring it to wii u.
Maybe they'll add as a stretch goal later, as this just seems a dumb decision. Wii u is the home of indie gaming without a doubt, why would you not release a game like this on it?



DESS-M-8 commented on Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush Fails to Brea...:

Of course it failed. Kirby isn't a mass market draw. It's an entry level game that only has appeal with Nintendo fans. Nothing about Kirby will make people stop and say oooo I need a wii u.
Nintendo keep repeatedly pushing the wrong franchises to attract new consumers



DESS-M-8 commented on Feature: The Key Details on Splatoon, Nintendo...:

@Ryno I'm more than 90% confident that the new zelda game has been delayed to develop the game for NX, or at the very least code a second version for NX ready for launch late 2016-early 2017. Just like they did with twilight princess, for gamecube and wii, and just like they should have done with skyward sword for wii and wii u



DESS-M-8 commented on First Impressions: Tapping In With amiibo Tap:...:

@TheRedCap30 that's exactly the point, they're not rare. It adds a bit of individual appeal to each amiibo, the demo only represents a game worth less than £5. If you're overtly interested in the game pre demo, it's hardly unattainable is it. It's about adding another facet to amiibo, not giving you free demos.
