DESS-M-8 commented on Retailers In North America Merge Wii U & 3DS L...:

I saw all this in a wal-mart in Florida last month on holiday, and didn't really pay it much attention.

Nintendo's always red, they should stick with it. Psychological red is the dominant colour in marketing and advertising and it IS their identifiable colour.
Sony blue
Xbox green
Nintendo red.

Using white or grey is just asking for people not to notice you, going blue with Wii U was a mistake. Go back to red.



DESS-M-8 commented on Fresh Nintendo Patent Shows Handheld Device Wi...:

@Morph they need to stick with the tablet. The gamepad if the best part of the wii u. The failure of the wii u is down to the fact that the hardware is too similar to the wii.

As a starting point they needed to drop the "Wii" the name was synonymous with junk and gimmick by the end of its life and worth nothing in terms of marketing.

It needed to be new, radically different and shouted loudly about. It wasn't. It was almost a wii, with revolutionary controller.

Re-invent the hardware, refine the controller, you an amazing console to succeed to the wii u



DESS-M-8 commented on Miyamoto: Star Fox Zero Has Been Delayed, "I A...:

@digga twilight princess delayed because we want to Polish it!! Of no wait, it's because we've overhauled the engine, developed wii controls ands want it also as a launch title for our successive console.

Mario bros wii 2 ended up being a launch title for wii u purely as mario bros wii u. Same with Pikmin 3.

Stop kidding yourself, nintebdo are a business and make decisions based on profitability. Why would you launch a aaa game on a console that's dead in the water when it has much more market potential being released on a console that is imminent and actually has a marketing budget?



DESS-M-8 commented on Talking Point: Star Fox Zero's Delay Could Be ...:

Two words.

"won't sell"

Won't sell in any decent numbers anyway, will be in and out of December sales charts in a week if it even makes it into the charts in the first place.

What this news does further support, is that Nintendo and it's partners are now in full throttle behind NX and a hardware release in the holiday season after its showcase at E3 2016 is almost a definite.



DESS-M-8 commented on Early NX Reveal Was To "Reinforce Commitment" ...:

@Octane of course they won't confirm anything. NDA's my good man. Have you heard nintendo say they're working on which specific titles for NX?
Can you 100% guarantee that they are developing a number of software titles?
Of course they are.
What a company reveals publicly that they are developing and what they are actually working on are two wholly different things.
Even more so when it comes to a soon to be released console.



DESS-M-8 commented on Nintendo Is Merging Its Prized EAD And SPD Tea...:

@Mister_Wu the IP's that actually need completely reinventing are the whole roster of F-zero.
Captain falcon does and has always looked like what judge dredd would look like if he joined the Village People. F-Zero has the potential to spawn a number of spin offs, such as an open world bounty hunter game as captain falcon, except they refuse to drag them all out of their late 80's fashion and garb. Failing that, they refuse to drag them out from 2003 and the gamecube. Over a decade of decay and really prime for a relaunch. Want tontinker with something and change something, don't to something old and almost forgotten like fzero.

Do not start to change the history and while character of your characters that work!!!! Never again tell me yoshi is not a dinosaur!!!!!

It's like disney saying Pete the cat, isn't a cat, he's just a thing, a Pete if you will. Never a cat! Where did you get cat from!!??



DESS-M-8 commented on Nintendo Is Merging Its Prized EAD And SPD Tea...:

Yoshi is a dinosaur, that's how he was introduced in super mario world. Check the manual and the game itself. I might be wrong, but isn't the opening island called dinosaur island aswell. The confusion is that the large yellow coins in super mario world sporting yoshi's face were called dragon coins, mis-leading some to think he was a dragon.

Rebranding yoshi as a yoshi is either the mistake of an unknowledgeable youth staff responsible for the website, and the error not picked up on proof reading. Or it is nintendo attempting to reinforce their IP characters and strengthening brand identities.

Either way. Yoshi is a dinosaur.



DESS-M-8 commented on Video: Fan Recreates Stunning Build Of Ocarina...:

How amazing and groundbreaking ocarina of time was at its time of release was greater than this. Ocarina was THE first time gamers were given a TRUE 3D world for them to explore that had a real feel of freedom and sheer volume of space to explore. GTA borrowed heavily from this game. Zelda is nintendos go-to game when showing graphical power. Why they have relented from this since this game is a mystery. A TRUE graphical powerhouse from nintendo is begged for by this franchise. Zelda Wii U hinted at it.

DROP the cell shade once and for all and DELIVER just like ocarina did. OoT to this day has blown me away more than any other game I've ever aged on their respective release dates. Zelda and Nintendo owe to themselves to show the world what they are loved for.



DESS-M-8 commented on Early NX Reveal Was To "Reinforce Commitment" ...:

@Octane except that nintendo had NX running at E3 for third party developers exclusively and dome developers already have development kits. Some games are already confirmed for it, such as that dragon quest game or whatever it's called. Never played it. But it's huge in Japan and the import scene



DESS-M-8 commented on Poll: What Do You Think of the Super Smash Bro...:

Who ran sega in the mega drive and early saturn days? Those guys are the last time a console and in house first party company worked well. Sales didn't reflect that as their marketing department stinked, (sound familiar?) but Goddamn their back catalogue was pedigree



DESS-M-8 commented on The Legend of Zelda on Wii U Still Has a TBC R...:

I hope that zelda becomes an NX a launch title.

Do I want to play zelda right now on my wii u?
Damn right I do.

Is wii u userbase sufficient in size to get the return on a game like zelda is capable of? Absolutely not.

Do I want NX to launch and be armed to the teeth with system selling software?
Damn right I do.

Does this zelda fit that model?
File your own answer here, to This rhetorical question.



DESS-M-8 commented on Dragon Quest XI Is Coming To The Nintendo 3DS ...:

This all but confirms the intended power of the NX as being on the same playing field as PS4 if nothing else. For a developer to be developing for twp home consoles the spec needs to be similar, so the concerns of NX being severely underpowered again are proven wrong



DESS-M-8 commented on Speculation Grows That AMD Will Provide the Ni...:

@ikki5 They did learn from 3DS. They totally turned that handheld around.
There is too much wrong behind the scenes for wii u to have been a success. Their whole infrastructure and developer ethos does not support modern gaming.
Lessons have clearly been learnt.
The fragmented membership/account system that wreaked of the 80's "collect points for tat" and download so your console owns it on a totally separate system needed binning.
Not only have they begun beginning it, they have literally invested MILLIONS to overhaul this entire aspect of their business. Once their infrastructure is fixed, then they can focus on delivery.
That system will be fixes this year and paves the way nicely for their new hardware to debut onto the nice new nintendo of the future



DESS-M-8 commented on Speculation Grows That AMD Will Provide the Ni...:

@Mr_Zurkon I'd say bin backwards compatibility and start from scratch at full pace. Have a third party make definitive edition wii u titles to bolster the first two years for the 100,000's of people who should have bought a wii u. And move nintendo hardware forward. Holding it back with powerpc just for backwards compatibility is backward thinking



DESS-M-8 commented on Sega Sorry That It "Betrayed" Fans, Hopes To W...:

90's sega across the megadrive and saturn eqs one of the greatest eras in video game history and on of the best companies ever. If they could even get back to 10% of that standard I'd be happy, right now they are ROCK bottom



DESS-M-8 commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Won't Be As Powerful As Pl...:

@HollywoodHogan correct. Same as wii u, same as ps4, same as Xboxone. A good point well spotted by yourself.

The ultimate point is, just like wii u, if the performance doest match the mainstream, the third party support will dissolve as fast as it always does. No third party would commit multiple full teams for several iterations. If your machine doesn't stack up and requires a full ground up port, it isn't gonna happen. Period.

See, you can make a good and we'll informed point when you try. Clever boy.



DESS-M-8 commented on Talking Point: Raw Power Isn't Vital to Ninten...:

If NX doesn't match PS4 for power it may aswell not bother. Wii u had everything but power and ts support disappeared as soon as ps4 was prevalent.
If you can't keep up, you're out of the running for third party support, unless you have a gimmick, and then you get short loved support.
No will definitely result in a failed console.



DESS-M-8 commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Won't Be As Powerful As Pl...:

Then they may aswell not even launch it. A new machine will suffer big time 3 years from now if it isn't the most powerful. They are cutting the much weaker wii u short by 3-4 years. To replace that with ANOTHER underpowered machine is just silly.

No, graphics don't make a good game.
Third parties however, depend on graphics for marketing and will drop nintebdo AGAIN as the hardware won't stack up for development of multi platform titles. They need to match or exceed ps4



DESS-M-8 commented on Feature: What If The SNES PlayStation Had Actu...:

@MightyKrypto hahahahahahahahahahahahaha and THAT is the funniest thing I've ever read. Why are you quoting library volume numbers at me? If ALL those 575 ames on ps4 are garbage or a re-issue of a year old game, what relevance does your point bear on anything?

Out of those 575, there are less than 5 (and is really pushing it) worth purchasing and playing. Out of the 625 on wii u I could name 30+ games worth playing.

The wii u library is STRONGER not massively bigger in number, but has way more quality and depth. Most games on ps4 I already owned on my ps3. Near ALL ps4 owners are ones moved on from ps3, rebuying "ultimate" editions of games they bought as new only 12 months before just for the sake of buying a new game. Batman is THE first true next gen game that isn't on ps3, and it's amazing. That's one game over a year after the console was launched. That's appalling.



DESS-M-8 commented on Feature: What If The SNES PlayStation Had Actu...:

@hYdeks Nintendo's worst adversary is themselves.
Sony have never created anything amazing or superior. Their hardware, especially their peripherals, are and always have been garbage. Their "first party" games cost them a fortune, nothing is in house like a true games company. They playstation is just another branch of hardware for one of the worst hardware companies in the world. I only own a ps3 and ps4 because nintendo relentlessly screw themselves out of third party support and I would own an Xbox if it was given to me.
The only thing Sony have ever excelled at, is marketing. The Ps4 is selling amazing!!!! how!!?? The library is shocking and actually worse than Wii u!
Oh yeah, their bombarding marketing campaign tell the brainless masses what to buy............ And they buy it. Genius. Nintendo should try it, maybe the masses would own some quality for a change



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????



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.
