DefHalan commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Dismissal of Chris P...:

Don't bite the hand that feeds you. You can't expect to speak poorly about important people in the company and keep your job. It isn't about "issues with company culture" it is just about how you present yourself especially when representing a company. I would like to know if he got permission to appear on this Podcast or if the "laxed" rules change made him think he didn't need to ask for permission. I would never want to represent a company without direct permission from some of the top people in a company.

DefHalan commented on Tomonobu Itagaki Explains Why the Pro Controll...:

Sounds like personal preference and not actual reasons. I like the GamePad's wider design, smaller controllers feel too crowded to me. I also find I am more likely to hit the wrong button on the Pro Controller compared to the GamePad. Just personal preference.

DefHalan commented on Reaction: The Concept of eShop 'Early Access' ...:

I think the only way to do Early Access Correctly is to not pay the developer/publisher until the game is released. People pay for a game in early access but Nintendo holds onto that money until the game is released. That way you don't have people over promising and taking the money and running.

DefHalan commented on Splatoon Producer Inks Out Reasons For Lack Of...:

I feel like the sale logic behind "Voice Chat as an option is never a bad thing," could be applied to "Multiplayer as an option is never a bad thing"

There are reasons why games might include or exclude certain features. You may not personally agree with those reasons but it doesn't make those reasons invalid. I don't want Voice Chat in Splatoon, just like I don't want Online Multiplayer in Mario Party, just like I don't want Multiplayer in Dead Space. More features =/= better experience.

Well, there is my two cents.

DefHalan commented on Editorial: The eShop's Pricing Dilemma is the ...:

Sadly when a few companies try to take advantage of consumers it destroys the trust. Then consumers won't be willing to give another company a chance on high priced items, even when those items are good quality. People claim they want an open market, to make it easier for indies and others to create and sell games but they don't want to take the responsibility to actually support those indies that try. People, don't wait for sales. If you have the money and are interested in a game then buy it. Waiting for sales just shows that the company should make smaller cheaper games and it is a downward spiral.

Also surprised the article didn't bring up Shantae and the Pirates Curse

DefHalan commented on Ronimo Games Explains Pricing for Swords & Sol...:

I am sad to see so many people not buy the game just because of the price. Shantae and the Pirates Curse is $20 but people still bought that. I am going to buy it at full price once I can afford it but I don't think $20 is to much. Hopefully more of you will come around by the time the game is actually released. Also I hope the developer markets the heck out of it. They need to do a full interview.

DefHalan commented on Ronimo Games Explains Pricing for Swords & Sol...:

I completely agree that there is room or larger and deeper games on digital stores. It is a little difficult going from 1st for $3 to the 2nd for $20.

Also I feel strategy games have this unique aspect of unseen content. The strategies the developers have to think of and balance that might take the consumers months or years to develop is unseen content that the consumer needs to pay for. Hopefully there is enough content and good enough gameplay for most people to purchase this game. I want it but the price will mean I have to wait at least a month.

DefHalan commented on ​Doctor Who Confirmed For Lego Dimensions On...:

I was perfectly fine ignoring this game until now. I will check it out at E3, but if it doesn't blow me away then I will most likely be able to skip it. I am already collecting Amiibo and Disney Infinity. I hope this Doctor Who Lego stuff does well enough to justify a stand-alone Doctor Who Lego game.

I think the event should be the whole weekend. They could get a lot more data and give more people a chance to play it. I already have plans with my wife on Saturday, so I will only get to play it tomorrow for that 1 hour.

@Quorthon
Nintendo isn't going to save the Wii U. What they need to focus on is their brand, like sony did with the PS3. If they can prove a Nintendo system is worth the investment, even if the Wii U isn't selling well, then their next console will be in a better position from launch. Nintendo probably shouldn't launch a new system if their reputation shows it will just be replaced before it can get traction. Ride the Wii U out as long as possible (3DS and Amiibo will keep money flowing during that time) and once they have recovered their brand recognition, then bring out a new system. They don't have to make the Wii U a success (they probably can't) they just need to show it being a worthwhile investment before replacing it or we will see the same thing that happened with the Wii U

@JaxonH
Well thanks. I don't think I have the answer to all of nintendo's problems and my answer may be wrong, I just think if people really thought it out, they would realize that Nintendo making the same machine as Sony and Microsoft wouldn't be the smartest idea.
