EvisceratorX commented on Super Smash Bros. Takes the Lead in Japan Once...:

I don't understand why Platinum games sell so poorly. I've gone through their entire portfolio at least once and not a single one was worthy of these kinds of sales. Granted, they make very difficult action gamer-centric titles, but still, why do gamers not go for that kind of stuff anymore?



EvisceratorX commented on Nintendo's Unity Presentation Confirms Critica...:

Watched that presentation and good god, public speaking is not Damon's strong suit. Props to the guy for stepping up and trying to fill the very big shoes left by Adelman, but he started practically every sentence with "Uh, um, ah". It's one of those things that grates after awhile, y'know?



EvisceratorX commented on Talking Point: A Virtual Console Revival Could...:

I don't understand all the fuss. How cheap do you people want these games? 5 dollars for the original metroid or super mario bros. is an AWESOME deal if you ask me and it only makes sense that the slightly newer GBA or SNES games would cost more. And when you think about the process involved in porting stuff over and the additional features put into the emulation, the prices seem about right. Maybe it's just because I remember when some of these games were in retail for 30-40$, but I don't see any issue here pricewise. They definitely need to step up support and bring way more games to it, but that's another argument.



EvisceratorX commented on Talking Point: What We Want To See From Ninten...:

I agree with most of the stuff except the no physical idea. I know that Nintendo says they intend to apply an account based system, but until they actually do it, the chances of a digital only console succeeding at all are about those of a snowball's chance in hell.



EvisceratorX commented on Nintendo Lifts The Lid On Its Plans For E3 2014:

I don't think it really matters how they do their presentation, but the extreme focus on smash bros. worries me. They better have the most kickass presentation in years, because this is essentially Nintendo's last chance to prove the relevancy of the Wii U. If there's a meh performance this year, nobody is going to take it seriously from here on out, aside from loyalists.



EvisceratorX commented on New Instalment In The Popular Fatal Frame Fran...:

I think this'll get brought west in some form. Think about it, Nintendo has been saying they want to bring out more games that showcase the gamepad and the eShop would offer a prolific, yet low-cost, marketplace to present it in. A digital release is a no brainer.



EvisceratorX commented on Talking Point: The Logic Behind Game Boy Advan...:

The way I see it, this is a precursor to Nintendo unifying the eShops. Whenever they decide to roll out the unified accounts, an eShop won't be far behind, if not released simultaneously. Then all virtual console games and certain indie games will be available for both platforms.



EvisceratorX commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Ambitious Sales Targ...:

The 3DS will probably come pretty close to hitting its goals, but I wouldn't hold my breath for the Wii U. Due to exorbitantly poor marketing, Nintendo almost completely wasted that 1 year head start they had on the other 2 consoles. Had they waited until now to release it, they could've at least been starting on even footing with the others. Now, it's going to be an uphill battle to not only reverse the negative publicity, but start rallying positive hype.



EvisceratorX commented on Iwata Braves Press Conference to Explain Ninte...:

I think what they need to do is regroup and go with all the 2nd and 3rd tier IPs. I love Zelda and Mario games as much as the next guy, but they've gotta start giving those franchises a break. I think a big part of the reason that Nintendo is falling on tougher times is because they're too content to retread familiar ground and attempt to capitalize on past successes. Obviously, that hasn't been working, we need lesser known franchises to step into the light. There's a reason why Fire Emblem: Awakening and Kid Icarus: Uprising were so acclaimed: We hadn't played anything like them in quite some time and the quality gameplay was there.



EvisceratorX commented on Soapbox: Nintendo Could Have Ruled The Micro-C...:

I think they canceled this in an effort to boost Wii U sales. Every person I've talked to who isn't in the know think the Wii U is just a peripheral for Wii. Taking Wii off the shelves would definitely help to single out the Wii U.
