Dauntless commented on Natsume Suggests That Nintendo's Moving Away F...:

So the reason why we are missing so many titles is because Nintendo has to control everything themselves, they are short staffed and don't want to hire addition workers. No wonder why their third party support sucks. All they have to do is give third parties a little more freedom and trust that they can test a rom with their emulator and we could have much more vc titles. I'm not surprised by Nintendo's backward approach anymore.

The dust has settled. People are set in their ways. I don't see this converting any XBOX or Playstation owners. If the game was on their system they would probably be praising it. But they are not going to buy a Wii U for a game that looks kiddy.

Dauntless commented on Analyst Thinks Nintendo Is Already Winding Dow...:

The biggest Wii U news for the last Nintendo Direct was that Fatal Frame is coming. So yeah the wind down is beginning. But this was expected. Nintendo operates on a 5 year cycle. The Wii U came out in 2012. We are in 2015. Nintendo will end support in 2017 if not sooner in 2016. There isn't much time left folks. If we are lucky we may see a 3D World 2 or Pikmin 4 before the end but I wouldn't expect miracles. Zelda can very easily become a dual platform release.

I'm sure Nintendo will continue to make fun games but I don't think they will change Video Game Lives. The only thing that will be changing gamers lives is Virtual Reality and that is if it works, and becomes affordable.
On another note I wonder if Nintendo is starting a trend where their codenames sound better than the final names.

Dauntless commented on Nintendo Of Canada Hikes Up amiibo Suggested R...:

I didn't feel like buying it at $13.99. I sure am not going to at $15.99. In all fairness this hike actually puts it closer to the US $12.99 with the current exchange rate. But this is something that should be US $9.99 to begin with, and Canadians didn't get a raise to be able to afford higher prices after the Loonie dropped. I don't see the appeal in expensive Chinese plastic. I would rather spend my money on more games.

While I don't doubt that Nintendo will make fun games I find it hard to get excited about a new platform. Its going to be hard for me to justify buying another one of their systems just for a few really good first party titles.

Seeing fanboys hate the idea is amusing. Most of you have a smart phone. By expanding this gives you another platform to enjoy Nintendo games on and you're upset?
Think of all the different controllers you have used before from past systems ( NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, Wii, Wii U). Each one rearranged buttons in a different formation, and or added analog sticks, triggers, motion, touch, etc. Each system had stellar software that was designed to match the controller and you were open minded enough to try a different controller each time unlike the Playstation crowd.
They will design the games to match the touch control scheme. You're not going to play Super Mario 3D World 2 on mobile. You will be getting something that takes advantage of mobile's strength.

Surprised? The Wii U only has a little more than 2 years left in its 5 year life span. Sega stuck around longer than most other publishers. Expect the Wii U to wind down. A few more big AAA first party titles and its over.

Thanks for the idea. I listed mine on eBay for $5. I don't have a 3DS so I have no use for it. Nintendo should have offered a choice between a WiiU gift or a 3DS gift for those that don't have both systems.
Do you really think I'm trying to get rich by selling this code for $5? Do you really think $5 is going to make the world of difference to me? You self-righteousness type make me sick. Its not like I'm hording the supply and preventing you from enjoying it.

Dauntless commented on Amazon Opens Pre-Orders For Super Smash Bros. ...:

What really sucks about this adapter is that it doesn't come with GameCube backwards compatibility. The Wii was just a slightly upgraded GameCube. If the Wii U is similar enough to offer Wii Backwards compatibility it should also be able to do GameCube. Its sucks that this adapter will only be used for 1 Wii U game and not the many great GameCube games that are out there. This is like rubbing salt into a wound. All the pieces are pretty much there to enable backwards compatibility but Nintendo is too stubborn or lazy to do it as usual.

Dauntless commented on The Club Nintendo Reward Details Are In For Au...:

Nintendo's club rewards really suck now a days. They pretty much have nothing except digital downloads ever since they took the shop down a while back.
Its a good thing I cashed out just before that, when they had the Super Mario Accessory Box listed. There hasn't been anything good on since and the platinum reward wasn't great either.

Would it kill them to release Excitebike 64? I've been waiting only since the Wii days. Its not like the title is owned by anyone other than Nintendo.

This sucks because there is nothing special about a digital game that could have been bought with a couple of dollars. And those that already have all the games being offered get screwed. Sadly I will not be looking forward to next years prizes with the direction Nintendo is headed.

Nintendo had the right approach for all the gamers that were home and not at E3. Watching a live stream of a Press conference is boring. Nintendo's approach of prerecorded video footage is much more entertaining for everyone else sitting behind a monitor.

They have a game done for 6 months and they are holding it back until more units sell? That means its not going to be released. Nintendo is doomed. Its bad enough when third parties don't make games for their system, but it is even worse when they do and decide not to release it.
