DanMan82 commented on The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight, And No,...:

@Hernandez I didn't mean like it's the only game not coming to the Wii U. I meant that this game was a huge part of the reason you were selling it. Sorry I didn't make that clear above. There's still good first party stuff coming down the pike. Like Smash Bros. and Mario Kart.

Also, don't knock DK until you try it.

What I'm saying is, unless you have zero interest in 1st party Nintendo stuff, I would think twice before selling it, that's all.

These are pretty cool stats. My only beef now (and correct me if I'm wrong) is why are digital sales of games still not accounted for on video game sales records? Based off this article, they would probably count for a pretty good percentage of sales and would be worth noting. What if the same thing was done with music, where companies like Billboard only counted the number of physical CD's or Vinyl (yes, they still make vinyl) copies of albums, EP's, and singles sold? Then there numbers would be drastically different!!

DanMan82 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Direct Pointed to Anot...:

I still have a backlog of games I need to play, so the drought doesn't really affect me. From what I've seen, very few 3rd party games interest me anyway besides Watch Dogs. I think the industry had better 3rd party content back in 2003 - 2005 than now. Why can't a developer make a game like Destroy All Humans that's just completly crazy and fun to play? Then, I might be looking more at what the competiton has to offer.

Also, other than a few comments on here, nobody's stated anything new that hasn't been said in the past. If you want to see my views, just flip through my profile. No sense in posting the same thing over and over.

As a final word, for those of you who say 3 months is a long time, it's not. May will be here before we know it...trust me...

As I said in the forum thread about this, if this is anything like what happened with Pokémon X & Y on Amazon, this could potentially be great news! I definitely can't wait to get my hands on this along with Smash Bros. 4

DanMan82 commented on Nintendo Direct: Trailers Round-Up:

@JimLad I don't think announcing something new and ground breaking during a presentation that only current Nintendo fans watch would get the job done either.

Also, unless all heck were to break lose (which believe it or not, hasn't happened yet), there's no way they would pull the plug on the system so early. We will just have to wait and see how E3 goes...

DanMan82 commented on Watch_Dogs Delayed Again on Wii U, Will Arrive...:

@JaxonH That was very well thought out and well written comment and you really hit the nail on the head!!

The only thing I don't agree with you on is the at the end, you seem to suggest that Nintendo SHOULD not be 3rd party focused. They should be 3rd party focused just as much as the others imo, because it will cost them in the long run. It is true that I by Nintendo consoles to play Nintendo games, but that doesn't mean that we shouldn't get the best 3rd parties have to offer as well.

I still think the game is on unless it turns out the game is utter garbage and doesn't sell well on the other platforms like Aliens did. If it doesn't come to Wii U, then I'll see if my PC can run it. If not, oh well, I'm not going to cry myself to sleep over it. I also have no desire to buy another system for it at this point.

I think it looks pretty good myself. My body has been Reggie, I mean, ready for this game ever since I played the demo in Best Buy back in March.

@AdanVC Yes, you're right about this being the box art featured on the Japanese site for the investor's meeting.

I didn't agree at all with him on the Disney buying Nintendo thing, but he really hit the nail on the head with this statement. See if the execs. at the big N can turn this thing around, and if not, then we can talk about getting rid of people. After all, if everything just came easy to us, would we be the same people we are today?

"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." - Michael Jordan

Also, if Nintendo doesn't get a third party game that I really want, I get it on the PC. Simple as that. Honestly, if anyone buys a Nintendo console anymore and expects stellar third party support, then this system is not for you.

DanMan82 commented on PS4 and Xbox One Surpass Wii U Lifetime Sales ...:

(After finally being almost done with school, finally gets to enjoy the Wii U and the great games it has to offer. Finally forgets all the hate for the Wii U and that Nintendo is "backwards", then sees the comments).

"What did you say? I can't hear you over the sound of Batman smashing in someone's skull!"

Note: I'm not saying Nintendo has made some bad decisions, but do you know how often I think of them when I'm playing games? None. Like @theblackdragon said, play what you want and forget everyone else that tells you to play something else for no good reason.

(Goes back to corner and smashes Joker's skull in as Batman).

DanMan82 commented on Super Mario 3D World Underwhelms on Japanese C...:

Well, even though we all had high expectations for this game, if you really look at it, this isn't all that surprising. As we've seen from the previous sales charts, portable gaming is the "in" thing now in Japan with console gaming taking a back seat. Also releasing it around the holidays helps them, but it certainly doesn't help with making quick sales. Since we are so close to the holidays, people prob. put it in their Christmas list or something and some simply haven't got the chance to buy it yet. I know if it wasn't around the holidays, I would probably already have this game in hand. It will probably do better in America, but I wouldn't be surprised if those numbers don't meet our expectations as well.

DanMan82 commented on Nintendo's Partnership With Southwest Airlines...:

Smart move by the Big N! Not trying to sound sarcastic or anything, but I'm actually a little surprised that Nintendo has bought the title of "official video game partner" for SouthWest before Micro$oft or Sony got to them.

But, since I'm pretty sure M$ has the NFL, that covers a lot of ground already.

DanMan82 commented on Reggie Talks Up Wii U Blockbusters As Top 10 S...:

You can say what you want about Reggie, but one thing that I admire about him is that he has guts. Hopefully he can leverage the assets he has at his disposal and make his claims a reality. All the highly successful businesses out there didn't get there just by "playing it safe" and making profits on "getting by". Reggie def. has the right mindset for the job. Only time will tell if he can put it into action.

DanMan82 commented on Performance of Batman: Arkham Origins Wii U Ve...:

I never had any problems with the game besides frame rate issues in cut scenes and occasionally a few drops in game. It runs pretty good on Wii U IMO. Funny how the people that did the comparison never talked about this:

This is on the PS3 version. While I think this is technically a "glitch" it seems to be a PS3 exclusive glitch. While some haven't experienced this, if you look in the comments, there are many others that have. There's another video that isn't anywhere near this bad, but at times, its like he's playing the game in slow motion.

EDIT: Supposedly there was supposed to be a patch for this, but I don't know if it has been released yet for sure.
